I found this on clearance at Target, and I said "why not?" I like the simple ingredient list, and the fact that it's fragrance and silicone-free. I didn't expect much, but I was hoping for an extra hydration boost.

I like it! It does deliver that hydration boost, without feeling heavy or sticky (after it dries down). I don't think it's working miracles …

I'm normally pretty loyal to my ASDM BH Salicyic acid toner, but I found myself running out, and I just didn't feel like waiting for something online to ship. I'd heard some good things about this from some people I really respect, so I hopped up to Ulta to pick it up. I'm so glad I did!

This isn't the cheapest product out there - I think it was around $22 a …

I wish I could love this, but I can't. It does moisturize, so one Pro, but far too many Cons with this product for me.
I will admit, I like the packaging. It's a solid, heavy bottle without a lot of frou-frou details. I like the texture - it's very light, more of a serum than a lotion. It absorbs nicely, and my skin does feel hydrated all day without getting the least bit …

I have thick, fine, 2A-B wavy, BSL hair. After a bad bleach experiment, I really needed a leave-in conditioner. I saw this at CVS and really liked the ingredients. My hair loves protein, but sometimes I really just need moisture. This fit the bill nicely.

I was a little worried that it might be too heavy for my hair, but I've been pleasantly surprised. I use just a little - not …

After falling off the skincare wagon, and getting the inevitable results, I needed to get back into a routine and I didn't want to wait to order something. Saw these at CVS and liked the ingredient list, so I figured I'd give them a shot.

It's been about two weeks now, and they're working out quite well. They aren't particularly strong, so I can use them every …

Oh, this is awful.
Although I usually make my own cleansing oil, I was packing for a trip, and just ran out of time and ingredients. I grabbed the Neutrogena at a CVS along the way. I had high hopes. The packaging is nice and the pump locks securely without leaking. The product had a nice feel - fairly light, without feeling heavy or viscous. Not a fan of the scent, but it wasn't a deal …

I really love this as a light hydrator. I don't find it to be deeply moisturizing, but it does draw hydration to my skin.

This product is a very light, whitish-clear gel. I detect no added fragrance, and it has little to no scent of its own. I find it applies evenly, and takes only a few minutes to sink in. It feels a little tacky immediately after application, but after it sinks …

I may have found my HG BHA!
After running through a number of drugstore BHA pads and finding them just not quite right for me, I tried Paula's Choice BHA - that didn't work out either. I decided to try the BHA from ASDM Beverly Hills. I already like their serums and creams, so why not?
I'm so happy that I did.

This product is a very watery toner that separates …

This is one of my two favorite sunscreens this year, and it'll be on the list for some time to come. The other is Biore Aqua Rich Watery Essence, but that's another review...Actually, it's an almost identical review. These sunscreens are very similar to me. I've been alternating them for almost a month and I love them both.

This is an every-day sunscreen. It's …

This is one of my two favorite sunscreens this year, and it'll be on the list for some time to come. The other is Biore Aqua Rich Watery Gel, but that's another review...

This is an every-day sunscreen. It's not water or sweat resistant, nor does it control oil. It's pretty basic, but it does basic very well. The protection is excellent (SPF 50/PA++++) and the …
