Cleansers - Paula's Choice - Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser

I like this better than Cetaphil, as it actually removes eye makeup without a separate makeup remover. It has a light lather and scent (no added fragrance, however). I was trying to use Alpha Hydrox Foaming Wash for a while, but that was too drying, and Olay's Face Wash was too emollient. I just started using this, but unless problems show up, I will continue to buy it.

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Aquage Transforming Paste

I have tried many styling goops (Aveda, Tigi BedHead, Garnier Fructis, etc) and I think this is the best one. My hairstylist recommended it to me. It is very thick and a bit difficult to work through completely dry hair (you can also use it on damp hair) but the results are worth it. I think it runs about 16-18 dollars but I am sure I will use up the current package and buy it again. I …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Alpha Skin Care - AHA Souffle 12 percent Glycolic AHA

I wanted to like the Alpha Hydrox line but it is just too irritating to use on my face.

Maybe the 10% and 12% concentrations are just too strong for me. I have combination skin that …Read more

Palettes - shu uemura - Rouge Dessert Strawberry Souffle palette

I really like the colors in this palette, although the blush is VERY peachy and it's easy to apply too much. My only other gripe is that the small size of the palette means that it's hard to swipe a blush brush across the blush without hitting the eyeshadow pans. These palettes are really only meant for eyeshadows, in my opinion.

Palettes - shu uemura - The Basic

I found The Basic on eBay; I don't know when it was originally released. If you can find it I would recommend getting your hands on it! There is a neutral brown eyeshadow (P Brown 874), a neutral pink highlighter eyeshadow(P Pink 103) and a sparkly amber blush (Amber 87). The brown is matte and applies very smoothly. I imagine this palette would work for all skin tones.
