I think this product will work better for those with more normal or oilier skin types. I don't think it will be hydrating enough for very dry skin. I have acne prone skin that normally tends on the oily side. I'm using differin gel which caused my skin to be drier and this doesn't provide enough moisture to the dry patches on my face. I like the gel like consistency and the …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Unlisted Brand - Irish Spring Body Wash - Original

A very familiar scent from my childhood. It's the only body wash that smells unisex enough for my husband to use with me and the only one that finishes quickly around the house. The description of the Irish Spring scent according to the company is: "fresh bergamot and citrus, followed by floral and herbal notes on a woody base." I definitely smell citrus and slight woodsy and I …Read more

Not for me. I have mid back length hair that's oily at the roots but pretty much normal everywhere else. This shampoo left my hair feeling like there was residue left behind after shampooing twice and letting it dry. It also left my roots flat and my ends waxy instead of airy and light. I gave it 3 lippies for the scent which is slightly floral, the texture which is creamy and the fact it …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Liquid Blush

Barely showed up on my NC44 deep-tan skin. If I add more, it becomes way too pink toned and clashes with my very warm undertones. It still has shimmer but not as much as the powder version. I didn't care at all for the shimmer in the powder version but the liquid is not too bad. Although it blends easily, it also dries fast on skin. Best way to apply it is to dot my cheeks with the …Read more

I have acne prone skin and have been struggling with acne off and on since I was a teen. Now that I'm 40, I'm having to deal with occasional hormonal acne which is a pain to get rid of. I used to use Retin-A cream then switched to gel and both were very effective in clearing up my face and keeping the acne at bay. I then tried Tazorac gel which was a lot stronger but still very …Read more

Shampoo - Johnson & Johnson - Baby Shampoo

Works great as a clarifying shampoo and less harsh than the likes of Neutrogena and others that are marketed as clarifying shampoos. I use it once or twice a week depending on how much stuff I got built up in my hair. Lathers well, rinses away clean and leaves hair fresh without residue. The review below that states it works for removing hard to remove mascara is spot on. It really helps …Read more

I'm surprised there's so few reviews for the waterproof version of this mascara. Anyway, I bought this based on the limited reviews I read here and I will say this is the best drugstore mascara I have tried yet. It's true it really gives length and volume and it's really black. I have puny asian lashes that are both short and sparse and point straight down. With one coat …Read more

Lips - NARS Cosmetics - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

I have the shade in "Consuming Red" which is a deep berry red with a hint of brown and I only use it as a lip liner or to change/darken lipstick shades that are too light. As a lip liner, it works brilliantly as it has good staying power without migrating or bleeding outside the lip line. As an allover lip color, I find the formula a bit drying on me. I usually have to wear a balm …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Splashproof Lash

This mascara is super clumpy and made my already sparse asian lashes look as if I only had 3 hairs on each eye. I don't think it's the applicator rather I think it's the formula which seems to be a bit too dry. I don't know if I got a bad tube but I don't think so. Gave it a fair shake, used it everyday for a week hoping it would improve. Nope. Had to trash it.

Cleansers - MAC Cosmetics - Cleanse Off Oil

This cleansing oil is great for removing stubborn makeup. It removes my waterproof mascara and sunscreen really well without irritating and drying my face out. I use two pumps and massage it on my face then use a warm slightly damp washcloth to wipe it all away. I then rinse of with soap and water. It even removes lip stains left behind by long wear lipstick. It's a staple in my kit for …Read more
