Cleansers - CLARINS - One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

5.0

Amazing! My HG morning cleanser- gets all my leftover makeup off from the night before and gently exfoliates for clean, refreshed skin. A bit costly but a little goes a long way. Would definitely reccommend again and again.

Concealers - Bobbi Brown - Concealer Kit

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/08/2009

This is by far one of the best concealers, ever. The consistency is extremely creamy and a little waxy. Very easy to blend as well. This works best when paired with the BB Corrector. If you don't have severely dark circles then you probably do not need the corrector because you could get away with just the concealer by itself. The best way to apply this is to apply a hydrating eye cream …Read more

Like many others, I also got to try this from my birthday gift from Sephora. The scent is the EXACT definition of sickinly sweet. But then again, there are people who leans towards those. I'm all for sweet scents but this was even TOO sweet for my liking! I also agree that its a HASSLE to get the lid to open. The worst part? The full bottle is the same bottle but bigger. Price is very …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/28/2008

I tried this awhile ago and I remember that it didn't do much for my then acne-prone skin (knock on wood). It did nothing if not made it worst. Yeah, it smelled like grapefruit but what good is that when it doesn't do what it's suppose to do? (clear pimples, that is). Anyways, overall I would not recommend this cleanser as it DID dry my skin out. I did like the fact that it foamed …Read more

Mascara - Lancôme - Oscillation Vibrating Infinite Mascara

I must say; I am quite dissapointed.
I am a total Lancome lover and was so hyped to try this out. Apparently it was the 'new generation of mascaras'. New generation my butt. Firstly, the formula sucked. Secondly, it didn't volume whatsoever! & thirdly, not much length! So no length, no volume & clumps: final word? DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS.

Note: …

I actually like this toner, ish. Yes, it does have alcohol in it but to my surprise it didn't dry my skin out too much. Would not use this on a daily basis though.

I personally like this better than Cetaphil. It foams to a fabulous lather and gets your skin really clean without over-drying. Defnitely would recommend but if you want the best gentle cleanser, I recommend Purity Made Simple by Philosophy. Give this a try though; a great drugstore buy.

Moisturizers - Olay - Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid - Original

For reference, I have combo/oily skin.

This is definitely one of the only drugstore items I actually quite liked. Sinks in to your skin so quickly and keeps it hydrated. No greasy feel either. I personally love the classic rose smell and can't understand how someone could not but if you don't, keep away. No breakouts and really helped with my dry patches. Would recommend.
