Skincare - Face - Kate Somerville - Eradikate Acne Spot Treatment

Apr/12/2017

This stuff is a little messy and has a pretty terrible smell, but man does it mean business. A dab on breakout overnight, and if it isn't gone by morning (it frequently is) it's down in size and redness so that it can easily be covered with makeup. The only bummer is that this is a spot treatment, not something for the whole face. Wish I could use this as a preventative, not just a …Read more

Cleansers - REN Clean Skincare - ClearCalm Anti-Blemish Clay Cleanser

Apr/12/2017

Skin feels really good at first, but after a few days I started to see congested pores all over my face. While they were worst on my chin, I also saw blackheads and whiteheads on my cheeks and forehead, where I almost never see breakouts. Switched back to my old cleanser a few weeks ago, and while I've still got some horomonal breakouts on my chin, my cheeks and forehead have cleared up …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Panoxyl 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Bar

I've been using this for years. Tried switching to a "natural" alternative a few months ago and it was a terrible idea. Now I'm back on this bar of soap and my face has repaired itself after just a week! I'll never stray again.

Scrubs - LUSH - Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub

I'm honestly surprised that LUSH hasn't tried to market this as an acne-fighting product, since it seems to work as a dual toner/exfoliant. I wouldn't dare use it every day, but using it once a week does seem to improve the texture of my skin and knock out stubborn breakouts.

After I take off any makeup I just rub about a teaspoon of this stuff on my face very, very …

Cleansers - LUSH - Fresh Farmacy Cleanser Bar

Nov/05/2011

I gave FF a six-week trial period, using it in the morning and before bed and following it up with a salycilic acid toner, BP spot treatment and non-comodogenic moisturizer.

FF made my skin lovely and soft...for a week. Then I started getting small but stubborn and bright red breakouts that really stood out from my otherwise very pale skin. These breakouts were in places I don't …

Shampoo - LUSH - Godiva Solid 2-in-1 Shampoo Bar

Oct/15/2011

Switched to Godiva from Biolage about a month ago in order to green up my shower regimen. So far I can't complain, which surprised me since I've been using a salon brand shampoo for so long.

All I wanted out of the product was for it to effectively wash my hair without overdrying. Check and check. I still use conditioner, but that's not a disappointment for me since my …

Powder - bareMinerals - BareMinerals Foundation

Okay light diffuser in the winter, but if there's any humidity in the air this stuff just cakes and looks like sweaty greasy mess. It was included in my Bare Minerals starter kit, otherwise I probably wouldn't have bought it in the first place. As is, I will definitely not be repurchasing.

Mascara - Lancôme - Definicils High Definition Mascara

Oct/14/2011

Best mascara I've ever used. I wear mascara every day but wear very little makeup otherwise, so for me this is worth the cost. If you want a go-to product that's appropriate for day wear, can be built upon for evening, and washes off easily (no raccoon eyes in the morning or black streaks on my pillow) then go ahead and spring for this. One tube will last you the better part of a year …Read more

It's great if you want to get the gunk out of your pores; I like to use it after I've washed my face just to make sure there's no traces of makeup leftover. Don't be stingy with it though! Make sure to soak the cotton ball all the way through if you're serious about using it as a cleaner/toner.
