I started implementing this old school product into my routine after not having used it for over 10 years and wow. What was I thinking using anything else?

I absolutely LOVE this product. It has transformed my skin. I regularly get hormonal, cystic acne and since using this product, I have seen a dramatic decrease in my breakouts. In addition, when I do breakout, something about this …

Cleansers - Aveeno - Positively Radiant Cleanser

Jun/17/2016

I don't have anything nice to say about this cleanser, really.
At the end of the day? I suppose it did it's job of cleaning my face. However, I discovered that this product triggers massive cystic outbreaks on my skin (despite it's non-comodegnic, hypoallergenic claims).

I literally have had less acne washing my face with my bar soap. In a single day of avoiding …

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)

Aug/22/2015

Pros: I had been using it for years without issue until 2015. Kept my skin clear of cystic acne on its own, removed every last stitch of my makeup efficiently & didn't dry me out. Cons: none of the above is true for this product anymore. I never even realized it, but this product doesn't get the makeup off completely!! I am using the same foundation & powder I have been for 2 …Read more

Concealers - Neutrogena - 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes

3.0

May/06/2015

Pros: decent coverage - covers the darkness under my eyes but usually needs 2 applications. Cons: it's so tacky (tacky as in sticky-paste like). It dries up quickly, so you're almost better doing a few drops on your face & then blending. (I usually put it on my finger, then blend). It reminds me of what a mud mask feels like before it dries & it just feels so heavy all day. Bad …Read more

I purchased this blush in the Ruby Murray color and used it for about 3 weeks.
I loved the ruby color and realized for the money, I got more product than other cheek stains/creme blushers by comparison. To apply, I used a thin round sponge applictor most of the time. Only a few times did I use my fingers.

PROS-
Vibrant color
Adequate staying power for office/indoor …

Lips - Butter London - LIPPY Tinted Balm in Axis Kiss

Nov/11/2014

The short of it, I hate this product and no, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Cons:
1) It claims it is a 'balm' but it couldn't be further from it. Finish is matte and dries your lips out after a week's use. (I bought this as an everyday, work-suitable shade).
2) The product is so sticky and difficult to spread, you can't extend too much of …

Dry Shampoo - Suave - Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray

3.0

Feb/04/2014

It does the job - but I feel like I have to use twice as much. Doing so runs the risk of making my light brown hair look grey and mousy. People around me like the smell, but I hate it. I guess it's a positive thing if others like it - but I am not a citrus fan and didn't expect it to have a scent as most other dry shampoos don't. The scent is overwhelming and takes away from my …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - Chance

I hate how strong this is. It's literally irritating. I spray ONE spray on the back of my neck and my eyes begin to water & itch, my nose clogs up & there is NOTHING I can do to remove it. It's one of those you spray in the air & RUN through. I'm insecure about it too because I feel like others can detect how strong it is. Thumbs down.
