Liquid - Almay - Skin Stays Clean [DISCONTINUED]

Oct/29/2005

My skin has been tending toward oiliness lately so I decided to try this foundation from the local drugstore. I did so without checking Makeupalley first, something I'd never do for pricier products. MUA has saved me from making bad purchases a number of times!

Anyway, the first time I put it on, there was a bit of stinging, most likely from the salicylic acid. But it …

Cleansers - Good Skin - All Right Medicated Cleanser

Very effective for my breakout-prone skin. I don't use it every night, mainly when I'm feeling oily and tending toward breakouts.

It cleans really well (I don't wear a lot of makeup so can't speak to how well it does for heavy makeup) and doesn't dry out my skin, just makes it feel clean with no residue.

I like this and will probably repurchase but …

I really like this tinted moisturizer/foundation. It has enough coverage to even out skin tone but you do need to use a more opague concealer for blemishes, etc.

The best thing about it for me is that, unlike every other tinted moisturizer I've used, this one doesn't make me shiny at all during the day. Not exactly a matte finish, but no greasiness!

I will …

Toners - Good Skin - All Right Purifying Toner

I like this toner. You can definitely feel the strength of the salicylic acid, but it's just what my skin needed during a horrible breakout period recently. Within days, the Good Skin regimen whipped it back into shape.

The toner makes my skin tingle, but it doesn't burn at all.

Probably best for combination/oily skin as I could see normal to dry becoming drier …

Scrubs - Good Skin - Polished Skin Gentle Exfoliator

A very nice, non-abrasive but effective scrub that I use daily in the shower. Smell is clean and nice, not at all perfumy and very low-key.

I really like the consistency of the tiny beads that are not at all scratchy.

Will definitely repurchase!

Skincare - Face - Revive - Moisturizing Renewal Cream

A nice, light cream with an appealing scent that easily absorbs in the skin.

I've used it at night for 3 months and haven't noticed any difference in my skin texture, fine lines or pigmentation spots.

I'll finish the jar but won't be repurchasing due to the price/value.

The cream has a great gel/cream texture and lovely scent. Absorbs nicely and leaves skin soft. My breakout prone skin hasn't had a single problem in over 3 months of use.

I can't give it more than a neutral rating, however, because it's so expensive, and I haven't seen any noticeable improvements in my mid-forties skin.

A lovely, but over-priced …

Not as yellow-based and more moisturizing than Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer. When I need more or longer lasting coverage, I mix in a bit of LORAC oil-free foundation. I use Light for my fair skin and it's a perfect match. Love the hygienic squeeze bottle and the even, easy application. No breakouts on my breakout prone skin. A great tinted moisturizer!

Skincare - Face - Rodan + Fields - Radiant Skin Care Line

Jun/06/2004

I purchased the Radiant Skin Care Line hoping to gain a healthy glow and to reduce some pigmentation around one of my cheeks.

I've used the regimen faithfully for almost 2 months, and I have mixed feelings, especially given the cost of the products.

My skin is somewhat clearer (although I broke out horribly this past week), but I haven't noticed much in the way …
