Treatments (Face) - Zapzyt - Maximum Strength 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Gel

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2016

I bought this because PersaGel was sold out and I thought I'd give it a try, since they both have 10% benzoyl peroxide. PersaGel is better, IMO. I like to mix together PersaGel with Cetaphil moisturizer every other night (or more often depending on the blemishes I have going on), and this has worked very well for me. When I do this with the Zapzyt, it doesn't seem to lessen existing …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Aveeno - Positively Ageless Lifting & Firming Eye Cream

1.0

Oct/27/2016

This is a useless eye cream. Perhaps the least of the problems with it, it stung the skin around my eyes for a few seconds after applying it. In the first couple days it dried the skin around my eyes out, and the skin was peeling pretty bad. When the peeling was finished, the cream still was able to make a mess on its own. When touched, it pilled and balled up on the skin.
I put my eye …

Lotions/ Creams - Jergens - Wet Skin moisturizer - all types

Mar/03/2016

I really like this lotion. The best quality about it is the convenience. I have always hated applying lotion after showering because it was just another step that seemed to take a long time. There was way too much rubbing involved to get it all absorbed into the skin, and the whole thing was a headache most of the time! I have turned over a new leaf and am applying lotion after my showers. I …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Incoco Dry Nail Applique

I love these nail polish strips!! There are so many beautiful patterns to choose from. They do take a while to apply, but once they are on--if applied correctly--they are stunning. I like to top them off with a top coat to add shine and make them last longer, though I think there is a topcoat in them. The manicure strips last about a week and a half to two weeks for me. The pedicure strips …Read more

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser

4.0

Jan/26/2016

This is a good cleanser which I used for years. I have acne prone skin, and while this did a good job and didn't break me out, and removed my makeup well, I have since found another cleanser which is much more gentle. This cleanser will dry me out around my nose and mouth, and I will get all itchy around my nose, which is not pleasant! I have switched to acne.org's gentle cleanser …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Butterfly Mascara

5.0

Sep/27/2014

This is a great mascara! It does give the butterfly effect on the lashes. As another reviewer observed, the first time using this it seems like a so-so mascara that gives barely any butterfly effect at all. It took maybe my third time before I really got the hang of it, but I was determined to use it because I didn't want to waste a brand new mascara! The way that I get the butterfly …Read more

Jan/20/2011

What a find this scrub is. It's nice when you come across something that works so well and costs so little, especially when you use it every day. I like to exfoliate thoroughly, and this does the job wonderfully. In fact, if you press too hard or go too long you could end up with temporarily raw skin. I don't ever put my foundation on without using this first. It sloughs off all of …Read more

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup Foundation

Jan/09/2011

I have been using this foundation since I was 17 when my sister got me started on it while I was spending the summer with her. That was 7 years ago and I've been on it ever since, though maybe that's because there aren't very many choices here in this not-so-big town that I live in and I don't really want to hassle with trying to find the right shade in a skin clearing …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - For Audrey

Sep/06/2009

This is a beautiful color! When I heard that it was inspired by the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's and by the Tiffany blue, I had to get it! I got a lot of compliments on it. I know this sounds retarded, but I loved to just sit there and stare at my hands! I felt like I should be dripping in Tiffany jewelry and diamonds while I was wearing it. Yes, why am I not dripping in jewelry and …Read more

May/07/2009

This is a wonderful mascara! At first when I bought it I hated it and almost didn't want to finish it, but I didn't want to waste the money, so I tried it again a couple weeks later. I'm so glad I did and I don't know what I was doing wrong! I usually wear 3 coats of this stuff and the results are amazing! Seriously, they make my lashes outrageously long and it …Read more
