OUCH! After a few weeks of nightly use, this eye cream burned the area around my orbital bone where I applied it. For the last few days it has looked like I was punched in the face! I'm sorry, Origins, but this was a waste of money.

Skincare - Face - Dr. Bronner's - Dr.Bronners Tea Tree Soap

2.0

NOT FOR ACNE! I really want to like this soap as a cleanser for my oily, acne-prone skin. Essential and organic oils are usually too big to fit into pores and cause a problem, but this soap made my acne worse. Dr. Bronner's soaps are incredible as a body wash and hand soap, and I will buy the liquid castile soap as long as it is available. This stuff just isn't right for my face.

Cleansers - Bliss - Fabulous Foaming Face Wash

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2012

Bliss fabulous foaming face wash is a great cleanser. If you want something simple, soothing, exfoliating, and clean rinsing, this is for you. I wouldn't use this any more than once a day, because of the exfoliant it contains. The grains are nice and smooth, unlike cheaper scrubs I've used. Bliss was nice to put a pump on the bottle, which dispenses just enough product for the face and …Read more

Foundations - COVERGIRL - Natureluxe Liquid Silk Foundation ] [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2012

First of all, I generally go for sheer foundations. Acne is a huge issue for me, so anything heavy really throws my skin out of whack. This foundation is a thick liquid which sheers out beautifully with a wet sponge. The color range is set up well enough that I found my perfect match (325), and when well blended this foundation is invisible. It take about thirty minutes for the opacity of the …Read more

Lip Treatments - Jack Black - Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25

4.0

Apr/03/2012

So far in my lip balm career, this is the best that I've come across. I picked up the "Natural Mint" flavor at Ulta a few weeks ago for about $7.00, and fell in love the moment I put it on. The packaging made me expect expensive Carmex, but instead I got a dose of all that is right with the world. For about four hours, my lips feel completely protected and moisturized; without …Read more

Concealers - Bobbi Brown - Corrector

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2012

Bobbi Brown's corrector in Light Bisque is my everyday under eye concealer. This product goes on incredibly smooth and stays all day while canceling out the dark circles under my eyes. I'm a guy, so it's nice that this stuff really has to be packed on to be visible. For about $20 I was worried about running through the seemingly small pan quickly, but it's been a few months …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - CLINIQUE - All About Eyes Rich

4.0

Mar/02/2012

So far in my eye cream life, this is the only one that I have repurchased. All About Eyes Rich is great for moisturizing and brightening- but I wouldn't count on too much more than that. I'm young, but have a squint and subsequent fine lines around the corners of my eyes. This cream has done nothing whatsoever for those. Even on late nights this stuff rescues me from getting under eye …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2012

I'm in love with this cleanser! Ever since my esthetician introduced me to it a few months ago this has been my nightly face wash. Using an oil based cleanser for oily, acne prone skin like mine seemed a little out there, but this stuff hasn't caused oiliness or breakouts for me. The smell is controversial, but to be honest if Philosophy changed it I would stop buying this product. My …Read more

Masks - Mario Badescu - silver powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/29/2012

For me Mario Badescu products are hit or miss- and this one is a hit. The loose powder (Calcium Carbonate, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide) turns into a paste when applied with a damp cotton ball. I only use this on my nose, where I have large pores and blackheads. After a few minutes the paste begins to solidify and feels a lot like a clay mask. The key part of using this product is to remove it …Read more

Lip Treatments - L'Occitane - 10% shea butter anti-drying lip balm

3.0

Jan/04/2012

Yes this lip balm is hard, bitter, and expensive. It is also one of my favorites. I find that getting a fresh tube really helps with both the flavor and consistency. I've found this balm to be one of the most moisturizing, so I use it under gloss and lipstick. The flavor really doesn't bother me, so I continue to repurchase this every time I see it. The only lip balm I like more is by …Read more
