Moisturizers - CeraVe - Skin Renewing Cream Serum

I have dry, breakout prone skin and this is HG status for me. I use a rx retinol (cream) that makes my skin extremely dry - prior to this, I was literally using aquaphor on my face before bed. But this leaves my face even smoother and more moisturized, minus all the grease. My skin is so soft when I wash it in the morning. Definite rebuy.

Love this, along with the wash. Detangled my fine, dry hair without weighing it down. Very moisturizing but doesn't leave any kind of greasy coating. Total win! It is a little expensive but I love it, I think it's worth it.

I love this! Prior to this, I was a Pureology Hydrate devotee. And I still like the Pureology, but this is better. It left my dry, highlighted hair feeling super soft. We have hard water and not all shampoos seem to work well with it, but this was a hit.

In the interest of full disclosure, I have REALLY dry skin. I use a rx retinol (cream-based) and live in one of the driest places on earth. With that all said, calling this 'intense' is laughable. It's not. It doesn't even remotely moisturize my skin for more than twenty or so minutes. It might be great for someone with normal skin, but it isn't adequate for truly dry …Read more

I'm a little torn on this one. It does seem to help calm down the brassy tones in my blonde, highlighted hair. However-- it leaves my hair kind of coated and greasy feeling. At first, I thought I just needed to rinse more (because it kind of had the feeling you get if you don't rinse well enough) but I've tried it several times with that in mind to the same end. So it doesn't …Read more

I love this. Pretty sure my shade is Soft Bisque, but I can't say for sure as the label has worn off (have had it for ages and it's down to 90% pan). The texture is creamy without being greasy, and I don't have any issues with it creasing or getting cakey. Ideally, I like to use this to neutralize the blue-purple circles under my eyes and follow this up with a concealer that …Read more

Not a fan of this. I find the texture very greasy, and that is with normal to slightly dry skin-- I feel like this would be a nightmare on oilier skins. It doesn't really blend in and just 'sits' there on top of it. Longevity leaves much to be desired also. I was hoping for a cheaper alternative to MAC Studiofix Fluid, but I guess I will keep looking. Would not repurchase.

Skincare - Body - JASÖN - Cocoa Butter body lotion

I am loving this! It's fairly light, sinks in quickly, and leaves my skin super soft. The texture is WAY nicer than Palmers Cocoa Butter lotion, which I find doesn't sink in well (and takes a long time before you can get dressed). And unlike the Palmers, it's paraben-free. I know that logically, topicals can't help prevent pregnancy stretch marks but that doesn't mean …Read more

I guess I'm one of the few dissenters on this, but Dove breaks me out in some kind of acne-rash hybrid. At first, I thought it was just pregnancy hormones. Then I realized the breakouts were much, much worse on my body than my face (which I cleanse with other products). After stopping with this for just 2 days, I've already seen an improvement. It's too bad, since it is inexpensive …Read more

Meh. I don't get the hype. I have really dry skin (thanks to BCP and retin-a) and even *I* find this a bit greasy! I really don't like how it feels on the skin. Not heavy, just a bit oily feeling. However, I must note that it hasn't broken me out and my skin is very sensitive/breakout-prone.

The finish is ok-- a bit shiny. Coverage leaves a LOT to be desired; I'd …
