This is just an OK, basic moisturizer,l. It hasn't done anything revolutionary for my skin, I see no visible improvement so I think the "collagen & elastin" claims is pure marking gimmicks and I fell for it. It is on the lighter side, I'd prefer something heavier, personally. But if you're aren't like me and aren't looking to be constantly slimy like a …Read more

I got this in a subscription box but I would not buy this with my own money.

I used it all up and ut was fine, the only thing wrong with it is the massive amounts of fragrance and essential oils that's I would prefer not to have in my skincare and the jar packaging which is not ideal for keeping skincare fresh. I also noticed it has coconut oil, which can cause breakouts and there …

I this for occasional exfoliation as needed, probably once a week when I take a day off from Retin-a. If I'm having breakouts, especially right around my period week, or if feel my skin is becoming very dull, I may bump it up to two-three times and it really helps make the acne clear up quicker. It's really leave the skin glowing and bright, so I also like to use it the night …

I was looking for a simple, basic moisturizer with SPF that was not too expensive, and this was on promotion at the time. I'd say this is OK, nothing too exciting. I like that the ingredients are simple because currently I am using prescription grade actives and don't want to do too much. This goes on smoothly, doesn't irritate my skin, and leaves me a little dewy, but not …Read more

Cleansers - Clean & Clear - Continuous Control Acne Cleanser

Jul/24/2018

So, I will say, I think this cleanser DOES work. The active ingredient, benzoyl peroxide, is very effective for clearing up acne. But this is not my preferred BP cleanser

I usually have a cleanser with this ingredients in my shower at all times, to use occasionally when I see a pimple starting to pop up (usually PMS time). So I don't use it daily. Just as needed, and then every …

Jul/22/2018

This is a good cleaning oil. I only use it on days I have a lot of makeup and sunscreen. It breaks down the majority of my makeup without lots of scrubbing. I definitely like to do a double cleanse, by following up with a gel cleanser to really get all my makup and sunscreen off. I don't like using it as my only cleanser, personally. It does not comepletely take off all mascara if I …Read more

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - 24H Super Liner Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

Very nice gel liner. Intense master black color, glides on easily, and I can get a very sharp line (with the right brush)

Lasts a long time. I do sometimes have some transfer or smudging at times, but very little.

The trick to keep this lasting a long time is also having some Inglot transformer on hand when it starts to get a little dry. I've had it for forever, and …

I thought this mascara was just OK at first. I did like the wand, the packaging is cute, but in terms of what it did for my lashes... eh. it made them darker and looked ok. it doesn't do a whole lot in terms of adding length and volume. I think my trusty Maybelline does way more. so I was already feeling like it wasn't worth the price. however, it got worse when I started to notice …Read more

As others said:

Its just like a slightly thicker Vaseline. I'll use it up, but not worth buying.

Does it work? Yes. It breaks up makeup quickly and can be easily wiped away before cleansing. But, I'd rather just use coconut oil (or any other oil) that will be just as effective and a lot less expensive. Also I'm not a fan of mineral oil/petroleum products …
