  • Clinique Naturally Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

    This eye makeup remover works like it says, very gentle. But, it often takes several swipes (and a pile of Q-tips) to get all my eyeliner off. If I am wearing mascara, I dont even attempt to remove it all, I like the way it looks after I do that and wash my face anyway. The biggest downside to this product is that it comes in a tube, and when you get to the end it is a pain to squeeze. And I definitely do squeeze out as much as possible since this is one of the most pricey lotion eye makeup removers out there. I would suggest trying Shiseido's Benefiance (cheaper & more effective) before settling on this one.

  • Shiseido Benefiance Creamy Cleansing Emulsion

    Makeup comes of pretty easily with this, but it does leave behind a bit of a greasiness. I dont know how much I mind this though because it may be what allows the makeup to come off so easily, and it is moisturizing rather than drying. I love the pump dispenser, as tubes can get annoying when you get near the end. Lastly, I cannot do without lotion eye makeup removers and out of several brands that make them (clinique, kiehls, clarins), this one is actually the cheapest per ounce.

  • Jan Marini Skin Research Age Intervention Eyelash Conditioner

    This works exactly as it claims. It conditions lashes so that they are RETAINED longer making them appear thicker and longer. The only catch is, it takes at least 2 weeks of use to see results and while daily application is recommended, I found it is okay to skip a few days, although better not to skip them all in a row. I notice that when I stop using it, my lashes fall out at a faster rate and thus look more sparse and don't reach their full length. For those that say it hasn't worked, that is because this product helps you to achieve your fullest natural potential eyelashes, and is not some miracle worker. When I was a kid I had thicker lashes and have since been unable to achieve that probably because of daily eyeliner wear, and now with this product they are as long as they used to be. With dark mascara people think they are fake! Regarding the price tag, a little goes a LONG way. I've been using the same bottle for about a year. Also I searched the internet and the best deal I found so far can be found at "101cosmetics.com".

  • Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion SPF 20

    Product worked great for a hot day at the beach. It literally felt like it was blocking some of the sweat on my face. For regular use it can be a bit drying, but if you plan to sweat, this is the product of choice. It is thick to spread on, but just apply a thin layer and it dries instantly, making makeup application not a problem.

    Bobbi Brown Oil Control Lotion SPF 15

    Goes on smooth, smells great!

    It goes on really smooth and smells great, sort of like tea tree oil. It has fair oil control which is nice because it isn't overly drying. SPF is quite low. Good for days spent mostly indoors.
