Cleansers - First Aid Beauty - Face Cleanser

3.0

Jul/11/2015

This cleanser is extremely drying and that's coming from someone with oily/combination skin. So this might be good for really oily skin all over but I don't know how someone with combination or dry skin could ever use this unless they have one hell of a moisturizer. On the plus side, it truly is unscented which is great for us sensitive skins and it lathers well so you don't need …Read more

Cleansers - ORIGINS - Checks and Balances

Apr/21/2015

My mom got me this cleanser back in the winter and I just recently got around to finally trying it out. I normally steer clear of cleansers with any essential oils in them 'cause they tend to break me out but I felt like I should try it as my mom had spent her money on it. I like that a little bit does go a long way, it really does foam up a lot!! And I also like that there is not much …Read more

I feel the same way as the reviewer below, I really could not live without this balm! I have been through so many beauty products in my life, I can rarely stick to one product for more than a week these days, with the exception of this. I have literally used this morning and night, everyday, for as long as I can remember. It's amazing! It goes on smooth, untinted (I really don't like …Read more

I just recently got this from my mother, who constantly gives me all sorts of beauty products to try out. I have to say, this has to be the BEST eyeliner I have ever tried! For so many years, I was using an eyeliner by Maybelline. This just knocks everything else out of the park. It goes on so easily and smoothly. I instantly loved this. I don't really know the price of it since I …Read more

Cleansers - Simple - Kind to Skin Refreshing Wash Gel

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2013

This is SO incredibly drying, which is odd for me to say seeing how my t-zone is quite oily. It made my whole face feel tight, parched, and just uncomfortable. My face also looked more red than usual, probably because this sucked out all the moisture in my skin. It might work for someone with extremely oily skin all over, who knows. I really had high hopes for this considering it has hardly any …Read more

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Concealer

Apr/07/2013

This is definitely the best concealer I have tried so far! I use it to conceal some redness and whatever pimples I may have at the time, and it gives very good coverage. All I used was this concealer and a bit of powder over top, and my friends couldn't believe how great my face looked, they said my redness was totally gone. It also lasts along time throughout the day, even through sweating …Read more

Moisturizers - CeraVe - Moisturizing Lotion - Normal to Dry Skin

2.0

Aug/15/2012

I heard alot of good things about cerave, especially this moisturizing lotion, so I went out and bought it. I have very sensitive, oily/combination skin. I break out here and there in my t-zone, never on my cheeks. My skin has became dehydrated and just overall bad over the months due to harsh cleansers/scrubs and climate. Someone suggested cerave lotion because it has ceramides and hyaluronic …Read more

This shampoo is crap, that's the best way I can describe it. I bought it a couple weeks ago, I wanted a volumizing shampoo & conditioner for my thin, flat hair. I used this shampoo in combination with it's matching conditioner, I don't know if it was the combination of the 2 or what, but this was AWEFUL on my hair. I've suffered from seb dermatitis on and off for years now …Read more

Apr/12/2012

I love this cleanser!! I have tried probably 30+ different cleansers in the last year because my skin suddenly became really sensitive and I can't use certain ingredients (ie SLS, which is in ALOT of cleansers unfortunately). I used to be able to use anything on my face, and now my options are quite limited. this boots no7 foaming mousse was recommended to me by a coworker 5 months ago, I …Read more

Scrubs - St. Ives - Elements Microdermabrasion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2012

This scrub is amazing! I have very sensitive, combination skin so I have to be very careful with what I use on my skin, especially scrubs. I tried the other st ives scrubs in the past when my skin wasn't that sensitive, and it was too harsh, so I couldn't even imagine using them now. So I was kind of hesitant to try the microdermabrasion one, but I am so glad I did. The scrubby …Read more
