Whoa, whoa, whoa! It's only been five days, I hope I'm not jumping the gun here... But wow! I have seen major improvements in my skin in such a short time! PIH is already disappearing, dark spots that seem to NEVER go away during summer are looking lighter, skin is softer, looks fresh and glowy! I am quite oily, slightly acne-prone and this moisturizer has not made oiliness any …Read more

Mascara - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mineral Infused Mascara

$3 mascara--if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

The price is nice, packaging is fine, the brush is suitable. Goes on nicely--more lengthening than thickening; good for a natural look.

It doesn't dry quickly. And if exposed to heat (i.e. taking dinner out of a hot oven) it MELTS and you feel like your eyelashes are gluing your eyes shut …

What the heck, Cerave? This eye cream is an abomination!
Never in my life have I had DRY skin under my eyes--dry, crepey, irritated, puffy, red!
I feel duped. Cerave makes great products, the ingredients were appealing, the price was fabulous. It even glides on smoothly. I read the reviews here, but thought "Eh, that can't happen to me."
After the first use, I …

My skin is finally behaving!
I did have a purge for about two weeks. You can tell if your skin is purging if you're breaking out in the same places you usually break out. If you're breaking out in random places where you don't usually get acne, then you may be having a reaction.
I got a few spots, they came on quickly and disappeared quickly, mostly on my chin and …

Cleansers - CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser - Normal to Oily Skin

Nov/01/2016

LOVE this cleanser! I switched from Cetaphil to this and didn't think I'd see much difference, but I was wrong!
The first few days I did have some dryness, but I guess it was just my skin adjusting because it doesn't do that anymore. The whole "repair and restore skin barrier" must be true.
If I'm wearing make-up, I wipe it off first with some generic …

Oct/28/2016

I was so excited to try this; I *really* need something to even out my skin tone. Unfortunately this wasn't it :-(
I purchased the .12 ounce size for $9--I was surprised to see just how small .12 ounces is! I was mixing a drop in with serum (supposedly this gets the best results) and using it every night for about 2 weeks.
Absolutely ZERO results--no change in fine lines, dark …

Magic in a jar! The only moisturizer I've ever used that didn't make my oily skin feel like slime. It goes on smooth, absorbs quickly, leaves no oil on my skin, my skin feels refreshed and hydrated, and soft as a baby's bum! Wears perfectly under make-up! It hasn't clogged my pores or caused any breakouts--I can't say enough good things about this moisturizer!!!
I …

Oct/25/2016

Oh boy! An oil-free moisturizer for sensitive skin, that's inexpensive and can be picked up at any drug store! This has to be great!
No. No. No.
Props for the pump bottle, that is great.
I already have oily, acne-prone skin, and after applying this I looked like I just dunked my head in Crisco. I felt like I had just dunked my head in Crisco. Within minutes I was so oily …

I believe this is now the RE9 Advanced Regenerating Toner ($37/1.7oz, uploaded picture).
First of all, I despise toners in spray bottles. Do you just spritz it on your face, hoping you don't get it in your eyes? How much product does that waste? Do you then rub it in? Spray it on a cotton pad to wipe your face? If that's the plan, then why is a spray pump necessary?
I used …

Scrubs - Arbonne - FC5 Exfoliating New Cell Scrub

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2016

Ok, the use of scrubs is a little bit controversial, but I don't care--I like a good exfoliating scrub a few times a week.
This is a very gentle scrub, so gentle it barely qualifies as a scrub. My skin didn't feel any softer, smoother or fresher after using.
No polyethylene beads is a good thing, yay! There was no fragrance and I didn't find it to be irritating; but I …
