Cleansers - Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Facial Cleanser

5.0

Jan/02/2018

I really love this cleanser. I remember using it in high school and liking it, and even though I've tried hundreds of different cleansers and products since then, this one remains my HG. My skin can be sensitive to certain things, but this cleanser has not caused any irritation. My skin is very oily, and this cleanser feels like it just absorbs and destroys all the grease out of my face (but …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Liquid Facial Soap - Oily Skin Formula

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/09/2016

I like this cleanser because it's very powerful -- definitely not gentle or mild, really gets every last trace of everything. Great for my oily skin and for getting rid of makeup. I bought this because it is fragrance-free and contains sulfates (which are getting really hard to find, surprisingly, in facial cleansers, and I need them for my oily skin -- these newfangled "gentle …Read more

Conditioner - Nature's Gate - Herbal Daily Conditioning

3.0

Nov/25/2016

As another reviewer wrote, this is similar to Aveda products in both its earthy fragrance and its funky, natural-ish texture. It is brown and gloppy, in a very unusual but "natural" way, and I was so thrown by the texture because it seems so much more like shampoo than conditioner. However, this DOES moisturize -- though not very intensely. Ideal for someone who has well-balanced hair …Read more

Powder - Too Faced - Cocoa Powder Foundation

I don't hate this product, but I'm not too impressed by it. I was looking for a powder foundation akin to MUFE Duo Mat but with some moisturizing ingredients thrown in, and I thought that this would be a nice substitute since it has stuff like cocoa butter and all. Overall, it's fine, but there are two main reasons that I prefer Duo Mat to this: 1) Color match: I am very fair with …Read more

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

May/06/2016

This is my absolute FAVORITE drugstore foundation, and easily in my top 5 foundations overall. What I love most about it is the color match -- I have never found a product that matched my skin the way this does!!! I am extremely pale with yellow-olive undertones, and the shade W1 is PERFECTION on my skin. It is the only drugstore product (and one of the only products in general) that has not been …Read more

Cleansers - Simple - Foaming Facial Cleanser

4.0

Nov/06/2015

I'm on my second bottle of this cleanser and I really love it. HG status, not because it does anything miraculous, but because it does what a cleanser needs to do and nothing else (this is becoming a rare feat for a cleanser these days, all of which seem so jam-packed with ridiculous garbage and BS marketing claims -- what good is a cleanser if it does everything except actually CLEANSE?!) …Read more

Loose Powders - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Loose Powder Microfinishing Powder

2.0

Oct/20/2015

This powder just did not live up to the hype for me. I had been wanting to try it forever, since I'd heard so many glowing reviews of it, and I was lucky enough to snag a deluxe sample of it with my Sephora points. So fortunately I didn't spend any money on it.

I just thought the product wasn't very good. I tried it with three different foundations, and it produced the …

Lotions/ Creams - CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream

Oct/11/2015

I wanted to like this product because it's one of those things that people just rave about. Sadly, it just fell flat for me. Can't use it on my face because it clogged my pores up something fierce. As a body moisturizer, it's fine, but nothing special. The ingredients look like they'd be so effective, and yet I felt this was your average, basic moisturizing cream. I'll …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Murad - Resurgence Renewing Eye Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2015

This is a nice eye cream, but definitely not worth the high price tag! I had a similar experience to the reviewer below me -- got a sample with a Sephora kit, and when I checked it out online, I was shocked that just half an ounce of this stuff costs $80.
It has a nice thick consistency, very moisturizing, does not sting or irritate my eyes. Doesn't irritate the skin around them. No …

Masks - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Oatmeal Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2015

I swear, this SAVES my skin in the wintertime when it gets dry and chapped. I buy the colloidal oatmeal packets sold as "oatmeal bath" at the drugstore (Aveeno makes one, but the CVS equivalent is just as good -- it's literally just powdered oatmeal, might as well get the less expensive one) and mix a half-teaspoon of it with equal parts apricot oil, then leave it on my face for as …Read more
