Cleansers - Jack Black - Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser

Dec/10/2016

Although this is formulated as a men's line, I love JB's lip balm (sadly not vegan, so I won't use it anymore), and this product is both vegan & cruelty free, so I gave it a try.

It has pretty good reviews on Ulta & Sephora, got a sample, didn't like it after using what's got to be my 4th bottle of Alpha Hydrox's Facial Cleanser, which is an …

Treatments (Face) - Acne.org - AHA+ (Glycolic Acid - 10%)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/09/2016

This is the 3rd AHA product I've tried and... I'm not really impressed. But then again, I've never been impressed with any BHA (salicylic acid) product I've used either. It takes a lot to make me a raving happy customer.

My skin: oily, acne-prone with I'm menstruating.

I bought this over the other one I've been using (made by Alpha Hydrox) b/c …

Treatments (Face) - Dermalogica - Clearing Mattifier

Dec/09/2016

It's been a few weeks since I've started using this and... nothing. I've used several salicylic acid products though, and I never really notice a difference until I'm done with the whole product, and even then, it's minimal.

However, since 2% is the highest concentration available without a prescription & I like having a variety of exfoliators (salicylic …

Powder - PUR Cosmetics - 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup (new formula)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/27/2016

My skin: oily that turns oily-dry in the winter. I've used Bare Minerals Matte and Make Up For Ever's (MUFE) Duo Mat. The MUFE shade I had was too dark for winter use, so I went and got this after reading reviews on every website online. Compared to the MUFE, this is about the same (medium/heavy) coverage, except MUFE tests on animals and Pur Minerals doesn't …Read more

Treatments (Face) - DERMAdoctor - Ain't Misbehavin' serum

After splurging on a tube of this and using the last bits, I'm more than a little disappointed at this product. You'd think that a $40 tube would get you (1) more product and (2) a more effective product. No such luck.

On the up-side, this doesn't make my skin peel like most other 2% salicylic acid treatments.

Moisturizers - Embryolisse - Lait-Crème Concentrè (24-Hour Miracle Cream)

4.0

Feb/27/2016

Little background: I've used Clinique's Gel Moisturizer for more than 10 years; since elementary school. I have oily skin and oily-combination that peels in the winter, and in the winter I needed something more moisturizing, but I never found a good replacement. I knew that Clinique TESTED ON ANIMALS, but I gave up since a lot of big brands (Estee Lauder, MAC, Bobbi Brown, L'Oreal …Read more

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/27/2016

Little background: I've had this for a few months now, I've used Stila's Stay All Day, Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner, and I have EXTREMELY oily eyelids.

At first, I really enjoyed Stila until I bought another and it started smudging. I was a bit skeptical that this would work better than Stila since it's a drugstore brand AND isn't waterproof, but color …

Deodorants - Unlisted Brand - Certain Dri

Dec/08/2015

It gets a bit confusing after reading reviews on MUA whether ppl are referring to the roll-on or the solid version (pictured, but has its own review page: http://www.makeupalley.com/product/showreview.asp/ItemId=137630/Certain-Dri-(Stick)/Unlisted-Brand/Deodorants)

So I'll start by saying that I've used both and I hate the roll-on but love the stick. After using another …

Cleansers - DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil

Sep/24/2015

I was really excited but also nervous when buying this product, since I have acne-prone, oily skin. I'm halfway done with my full-sized bottle, so here goes...

I tried the oil cleansing method as mentioned on the bottle: dry hands, dry face, wash off. Broke me out and it took FOREVER to clear up. Everyone's skin is different; I broke out.

Well, that means I have a …

Powder - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Duo Mat Powder foundation Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/24/2015

So... after doing so much research on Amazon, Sephora, and Ulta to find the best foundation for my super oily face, and trying a few liquid foundations, I ultimately bought this since I wouldn't have to worry about streaks from makeup brushes, or spending extra money on a makeup brush for a liquid foundation.

I have a great match for my skin; you can still obviously tell I have …
