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

2.0

Used to Love it now I Hate it

This was my go to cleanser for years but either something has changed or my skin just cannot tolerate it anymore. Like others have said, it does not remove all of my makeup and sunscreen on the first attempt. I usually lather it into my skin, rinse, repeat and gently remove with a washcloth. Even then, I might need to use another product one last time to …

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - LightStim LED Light Therapy- LightStim for Wrinkles

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/18/2018

Lightstim is supposed to be used for 6-8 weeks, and then there should be noticeable improvement to the skin afterwards.

I used it 5-7 days a week for 5 weeks. It did not burn my skin or make it red. It did make my face feel dry after use.

And unfortunately, it caused hyperpigmentation along my jawline and cheeks. I spent years getting rid of melasma and my face was quite …

Misc Beauty Tools - NuFACE - NuFace Mini

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2018

I read every review I could find about this product and bought it hoping that it would perform a miracle, or at least a mini miracle and help my face look firmer, plumper and younger. It did none of these things!

I used the Mini for about 5 weeks. I'm 49. I have sensitive skin and I use Retin A. Using the Mini did not break me out, nor make my skin clearer. Nor did it …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/16/2017

I tried using this product for a week or so. In the past I have used prescription Azelaic Acid products with great success.

The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension did not work for me and might have even causes more harm than good. It might be the silicones, or the fact that it's only 10%, I'm not sure. I cannot tolerate any type of fragrance and perhaps there is some in this …

Tools - CLINIQUE - Sonic system cleansing brush

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/16/2017

This brush would probably work great on normal skin. I unfortunately have sensitive skin. I tried using it and SLOWLY worked up to 3x, then 4x, then 5x a week. When I finally got to nightly a few months later my skin started breaking out. I quit using it but the blemishes are still there! I thought maybe it wasn't this brush so I tried it again. I've been using it 1x a week for …Read more

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Even Better Makeup SPF 15

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2017

I'm not sure why people don't love this foundation?

I have been using Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15 for many years, so many, I'm not sure when I started! It is one of the only foundations on the planet that doesn't cause breakouts and that has an SPF that my skin can tolerate. I cannot use anything with octrocrylene and it seems every brand is headed in that …

Lotions/ Creams - CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2017

This is my favorite moisturizing cream. I've been using it for at least three years so I feel it's necessary to write a review. It works well underneath makeup and alone. I use it on my face, neck, chest and hands.

Besides the massive amount of moisturizer you get for a very reasonable price, I love the way this Cerave cream feels. It has never broken my skin out …

Toners - Paula's Choice - CLEAR Extra Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution With 2% Salicylic Acid

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2017

This is the third time I've tried a Paula's product. Three strikes, it's out. I bought this because I developed a few small red bumps under my skin and thought it would clear it up quickly. I faithfully used the this product (not the cleanser) several times a day for about two weeks. At first, it appeared that my skin was clearing up and then all of a sudden I developed tiny …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Olay - Pro-x Nightly Purifying Anti-Aging Micro-Peel [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2015

This is the best glycolic product I've tried. I used the previous Olay fragrance free serum and it was great too. This is perfect for sensitive skin, and I cannot use anything on my face with a fragrance or I will break out.

My skin was uneven and hyperpigmented from years of birth control and sun. Now, my face is soft and much clearer. I have almost zero pigmentation and …

Moisturizers - CeraVe - Skin Renewing Cream Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2015

I don't write a lot of reviews but this is the first retinol based product that I have ever used that did not break me out.

I started in the evenings, every fourth day, then went to three, then every 2-3 days. I alternate it with Olay's ProX Nightly Purifying Micro-Peel and always apply CeraVe's PM moisturizer and/or CeraVe cream after to blend in the serum and provide …
