This is the only product that works on my evil skin. As I got older, I got a horrible case of acne, and I don't mean just one spot here and there. I tried several different products, both prescription and and non-prescription, and it just kept getting worse. This was my last attempt before I changed dermatologists and started over again. My skin is incredible now. I would have to say …Read more

I am so happy the Sephora make up artist introduced me to this product. This is perhaps the best foundation I have ever used. I have oily, acne-prone skin, but this product does not break me out. I do need to blot when I use this foundation, but then again, I have to blot with every foundation I've ever used. My skin looks great and very luminous, and combined with Make Up Forever's …Read more

This is the first eye cream I've used that actually reduces my allergy-eye puffiness and moisturizes without my noticing. No funny smell, no little bits of glitter to "brighten" the eye area, no interference with makeup, and no stinging sensation. I love it. It's one of the few eye products that, in my opinion, does what it says it will. Definite repurchase!

How disappointing. Love love love the color, but the glitter. I agree, all over everything. Not particularly professional to enter a meeting with glitter on your chin, upper lip, wherever those sparkles get to. I took this one back.

At first, I really liked this foundation. The sales rep at Sephora applied it so effortlessly. The coverage looked smooth and matte. I worked with it for about 2-3 weeks on my own and really didn't like it. The sponge that is included in the compact is rather flimsy and doesn't pick up the product well. When I used a foundation brush I really had to work it to blend it in. I was …Read more

I don't usually like to write negative reviews, but this product is so disappointing I didn't want other women to waste their money on it. This is perhaps the worst mascara I've ever used for several reasons.

First, for $12 you get a very small tube of mascara, which leads me to my next point. Second, the tube is so small that when you push your brush back into the …

This product is wonderful. Light, fresh lemony fragrance, recyclable packaging, and generous amount of product. I wasn't really expecting much, but thought I'd give it a try for my horribly dry winter hands, elbows, feet, etc. I was pleasantly surprised by how little is needed and how quickly it is absorbed for such a thick lotion. It takes a little effort to really rub it in, but …Read more

Toners - CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion #4

As part of the 3-step, this has been the best for clearing up my face. I agree with other reviewers that you need to have seriously oily skin for this to do anything good for your face. Not fond of the smell, but I'll sacrifice a nice fragrance (which doesn't agree with my allergies anyway) for clear skin. It also has a nice tingle to it that leaves my skin feeling refreshed.

This is the best moisterizer I've ever used. It's light, a little goes a long way, and it doesn't make my face greasy by the time I get to work. I was considering giving up moisterizer for the summer because it just seems to make my face one big shiny mess, but then I found this. Excellent stuff.

I have edited my review after a longer period of use of the system. It seems as though it temporarily cleared up my skin but that the drying effects of the products caused my skin to break out constantly after that grace period.

I am disappointed. I use the toner as a spot treatment, which seems to work better.
