Darn, I really wanted to like this product, but the first time I sweated, it fell apart into little globules. Eww?? I don't think I tried this product for long enough to find out if it aggravated my skin or not, although it did seem like it itched every time I sweated a tiny bit (in the 100+ heat in Phoenix). I was hoping this would work, but I guess I'll have to stick it out with my …Read more

While I'm not too happy with the "tub," this product works really well as an overnight face cream for me. I have very sensitive acne-prone skin, but this has not made me break out at all. I don't use it all the time ~ just for those times when my skin starts to get really dry and flaky. I would NOT, on the other hand, recommend this product for use during the daytime, under …Read more

I don't use this product, although I love Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion SPF 30 for Sensitive Skin. Unfortunately, the "Original Creme" product was featured in a research study, and the research indicates some link between skin tumors and this particular formulation. The research indicates that sodium laurel sulphate or mineral oil could be the two problem ingredients …Read more

The blush isn't bad, I guess, although the "Cool" I purchased is hardly visible on my PPP skin. That's fine, and I might consider purchasing this again, in a different color, if it weren't for the ULTRA-CRAPPY packaging. First, the hinge on the mirror side disintegrated (and I had never dropped or damaged the packaging!). Then, a few days later, the plastic handle on the …Read more

Greetings, girlfriends! I must say that at 30-something, <i>Eucerin Renewal SPF 15</i> is just right for my sensitive PPP combination acne-prone skin. After cleansing gently with Cetaphil Normal to Oily Skin Cleanser at night and in the mornings in the shower, I apply a pencil-eraser-size smidgen of the The Regimen 2.5% BP Gel. I use this in combination with <i>Eucerin Clear …Read more

Greetings, girlfriends! I must say that at 30-something, <i>The Regimen 2.5% BP Gel</i> is just right for my sensitive PPP combination acne-prone skin. With all those adjectives, other products are too harsh, and this harshness led to a cycle of breakouts, dry skin, breakouts, etc. After cleansing gently with Cetaphil Normal to Oily Skin Cleanser at night and in the mornings (in the …Read more

Greetings, girlfriends! I must say that at 30-something, <i>Cetaphil Normal to Oily Skin Cleanser</i> is just right for my sensitive PPP combination acne-prone skin. With all those adjectives, other products are too harsh while the regular Cetaphil doesn't cut through makeup or oil. I use Cetaphil Normal to Oily Skin Cleanser at night, applying a liberal amount and rinsing …Read more

Initally I had recommended this product on my PPP sensitive combo acne-prone skin. It has microbeads and beta hydroxy, and the price should be about $7 for 6 fl. oz. However, I found that the harshness led to more breakouts over time. Only recommended for people with bullet-proof skin.

Plum Sparkle... Diamonds definitely doesn't last as long as Maybelline Forever Lipcolor and Bath & Body Feel Good Lip Color. The taste is neutral, and the sparkle lasts even if the color wears off (OK, a little weird). For those that don't mind reapplying every few hours, Diamonds are GOOD, CHEAP FUN. Oh, and the packaging looks cheap too! ;)
