I have normal to oily skin and I don't wear much makeup day to day, so this cleanser is perfect for me - it removes excess oil and leaves my skin feeling clean but not tight, and doesn't irritate my eyes. It's a quite gentle cleanser to me, but still effective, which is why I'd repurchase it if I ran out. There's no fragrance, and the texture of the gel is quite thick …Read more

This is an inexpensive face cleanser - it doesn't foam a lot but it's not thick and lotiony, either; good for normal skin, I would say. It has a noticeable fragrance, which is what is keeping me from giving it 5 stars. Overall this is a very basic, cheap cleanser that does a good job of cleaning the face without stripping, for my normal-to-oily skin.

Cleansers - Olay - Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Regenerating Cream Cleanser

Nov/12/2017

This is an exfoliating cream cleanser from Olay, with fragrance added that is the same as other Regenerist products. The ingredients list silica, which is the physical exfoliant, and salicylic acid, which has exfoliating effects if left on the skin for more than a few seconds. I don't usually buy exfoliating cleansers, since I use AHA and BHA elsewhere in my routine, but this was free with …Read more

This one made my polish dry faster than it would have without it, but it dulled the shine in the process, which was disappointing; also, the packaging said to apply it to wet polish, and when I did so, the brush picked up some of the color from the wet polish. There are lots of quick dry top coats that are better than this one (that dry fast, stay shiny, and don't transfer polish), even …Read more

I usually stick with basic foaming cleansers and spend more money on face treatments, so the fact that I like this fancy US$25 cleanser is a bit out of character for me. I first tried it when I got a sample packet of it, and found myself really liking it - it's a thick, creamy cleanser with a slight minty-herbal smell that leaves my face completely clean and feeling lovely (with no residue …Read more

Oct/03/2015

I'm sad about this liner - I have oily, hooded lids and am always looking for eyeliners that don't budge, smudge or transfer to my lids, which is a tall order. I had high hopes for this one, based on others' success and what I've heard about the brand, but when I have used it (twice so far, for 10+ hour days), even though I let it dry completely after applying, the eyeliner …Read more

I am very pale with oily skin, and this works really well for me. It doesn't leave a white cast on me, and I love the matte texture that this has. It's very hard to find a sunscreen for the face that doesn't make my skin shiny and also doesn't cause me to break out, but this one works on both counts. Previously I had thought that only Paula Begoun's products would do, and …Read more

May/26/2015

I tried this after having used Maybelline's version of brow mascara, and it took me a few times to adjust to this one, but once I did, I really, really liked it. With the Maybelline variety, I could run the brush over my brows over and over and not get a super dramatic result, which I was fine with, actually. When I tried doing the same with L'oreal's - aka just slapping it on - I …Read more

meh meh meh. This is my first benefit mascara and I found it perfectly dull and unimpressive. It didn't give me an allergic reaction or like, burn my eyes; it also didn't clump or flake. But it didn't make my lashes thicker, and it barely made them longer. It barely did anything, really. For reference I have straight, short lashes, and I used an eyelash curler when I applied this …Read more

This is my first micellar water. I use it to take off my eye makeup and concealer when I get home from work, and I can't get over how great it is. It removes mascara so much better than what I was using previously (Almay eye makeup remover pads), and it doesn't irritate my eyes or leave an oily residue. I normally don't like to waste things, but I threw out my old makeup remover …Read more
