I have been regularly using this for two years- only foundation I can find that doesn't break me out, lasts through the day, great color selection.....and guess what? I can't find it anymore!! Arggggggg!!!!!! On my hunt for a replacement I have been left with very gross angry skin. Stock up if you can guys.

I have been having great results with the Aveeno Clear Complexion moisturizer so I thought I would give this a whirl.....I am not happy with this guy- yeah, it get's me clean and all but it feels warm and weird whenever I use it. It made my eyes water and my skin turn red and itchy. I just don't get it or my skin....I'm passing this one on to the fam
UPDATE:5/30 I'm …

So far so good, which is surprising. I have very acne prone oily sensitve skin and broke out from the last Olay moisturizer I used, so I was looking at this one with a very wary eye...(I had already bought this and wanted to give it a shot before I tossed it out) Lucky me, this doesn't break me out like the Sensitive Moisture Therapy did- go figure. It feels very light but provides great …Read more

I am using a gentle basic Olay routine after having a terrible reaction to some high end skincare and this is the final step. I am very happy with this moisturizer so far. It feels hydrating but light and I feel like my skin can breathe. My breakouts and irritation seem to be calming down and my face feels like it is relieved that I finally got it right! LOL I will update if things go …Read more

My skin has taken some major abuse recently so i am on a gentle Olay routine and this product is a part of it. LOVE LOVE LOVE!! This is the repackaged version of their refreshing toner and I am so glad that they still make it. It feels so cool and refreshing, tightens pores and really helps to heal breakouts and skin irritations. Love that it contains aloe and witch hazel and I don't mind …Read more

I'm using a gentle Olay routine after having a terrible reaction to some more "expensive high end" crap and this is a part of the lineup...Pretty pleased:) This cleans very well- removes all traces of makeup and dirt. My face feels soft and fresh but not stripped dry. I only have to use a little pea sized amount to get a good foamy lather..My only complaint would be the scent …Read more

This is one of my favorite indulgences. The price is ridiculous for a toner, but damn it works so well. It feels cool and refreshing and really helps with my pores. I even use it throughout the day to soothe and cool and rid my skin of unwanted oiliness. Wish I could afford the large bottle. humph... I LOVE me some Caudalie!!!!

Oh man......Ohhhhhhhh man..... I LOVE this cream. I have had a devil of a time finding the right products for my skin. It is really reactive and now that I'm in my 30's it's getting more difficult. I was previously devoted to Origins Youthopia because it never broke me out, but it made me flush and warm and I was always a little gooey and red. I would also be dry after a few …Read more

Another good Revlon lipstick. I got this BOGO at Walgreens along with a plum color. I love a good creamy lipstick and Revlon always fits the bill. This shade is like my natural color but brighter and richer. Looks great for every day, but mixed with a red liner would also be fantastic at night. And most importantly, it doesn't make my coffee taste gross!! lol

ummm....why all the fuss? Color is ok- on me it looks a little orange and glittery; it's not bad really, its just not that amazing. Maybe I just don't have the right coloring for this guy.
