After having switched from numerous concealers b/c it seems every time I find one I like it get discontinued I tried this one from Neutrogena. It blends well and in a pinch you can go without eye moisturizer. I like that it has SPF in it, which is rare in eye products. I also like that it's in a tube and I can control how much to use and how to use it (no applicators). It lasts a long time and even helps eye make-up stay in place longer.

I am not a waterproof mascara fan in general. But we were going on vacation and I needed something waterproof. I didn't want to invest a lot of money in something I might not like just for vacation. I spotted this for $3 at Target. I really was pleasantly surprised. It went on decently and never smudged all day. My lashes did not feel stiff like they can with some waterproof mascaras. AND it came off very easily.... soap and water. I only gave it an 8 b/c it seemed like it took a long time to dry after applying and I found myself having to "clean up" around my eyes.

goes on gloppy; takes FOREVER to dry; really didn't make my lashes or eyes stand out in any way whatsoever; the huge brush makes it hard to get to the small lashes in the corner

I soooooo love that they changed the package to a tube without an applicator. this stuff goes on nice and smooth. dries quickly and without color (unless, of course, you get the colored version). My eyeshadow is more intense in color and lasts all day. No need for touchups

GREAT AT KEEPING OIL AT BAY!
I tried this along with ClinClique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion as a free sample given to me by the salesperson at the counter. I was skeptical b/c EVERY OTHER so-called oil-controlling moisturizer I have used in the past never lived up to it's claims... but this one DID! It really did work in my oily T-Zone to keep my skin from looking shiny. I will admit it felt greasy, but never looked like it. I went out a week later and bought the full size. I would rate it a 10 except it doesn't have SPF>

FINALLY A TONER THAT WORKS!
I tried this because the person at the counter gave me a sample after a discussion about cystic acne and oily skin. I tried it and after one day was beyond impressed, but still skeptical... so i used it for an entire week and was amazed at how well it controlled my oily skin. Normally by mid-day my face is a grease-pit, but my skin was un-shiny for almost the entire day. I went out less than a week later and bought the full size!

Best I have Found in a long time!
WOW! This foundation is incredible. I have oliy-lish skin, esp in t-zone, so i have used powder foundation for a long time b/c anything else just makes the oil worse. I decided to try this because of the pore minimizing effects... and WOW! my skin looked incredible. Just the other day at the department store makeup counter the girl said "You have GREAT skin!" I haven't had a compliment like that in a VERY long time. It does have a tendency to ball up if it gets too dry before application, but that is not a major issue and be worked with. I would've rated it higher if it had sunscreen.

I was surprised at how well this product worked. I have tried nearly everything for ridding my face of those pesky pimples that sneak up overnight. This works really well if you catch the blemish early.. and use it at least twice a day. I didn't notice any fading on current blemish scars, but it definitely prevented new ones from occuring. It's a little pricey compared to other drugstore brands but it lasts quite a long time.

Waste of Money
I bought this serum because I was looking for something to help the redness and clarity of my skin. The Origins rep tried it on my hand in the store and we compared it to the Dr. Weil Serum. It felt greasy on my hand but she assured me that "Serums are not greasy" and that it would feel different on my face. The Dr. Weil serum didn't feel greasy but I couldn't stand the smell. So I went with this one. I should've trusted my instincts. My skin is oilier than ever and it hasn't made my skin tone any better. My skin is SOFTER and it does smell good. Also this bottle didn't last very long. I bought this barely a month ago and it's already almost gone.

I love this cleanser. I have been on a search for what seems like forever for a good cleanser and I finally found it with Philosophy! It leaves my skin clean without feeling tight and dry and no oily residue is left behind. Not so great at removing eye make-up, so make sure you remove that with eye make-up remover first. Otherwise, this is FANTASTIC!
