  • Clinique Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturizer

    A lovely, but not heavy moisturizer that worked day one.

  • Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel with Pump
    10.0

    Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel with Pump

    The best moisturizer for oily skin. But I wish they would add sunscreen.

    A must-have product. Amazing. My only request is that Clinique consider adding a sunscreen. Then it would be totally perfect. Also I've heard some complain about the price, but I actually think this is very cost efficient. First, it works. Second, it lasts forever. Third, it's just a little bit more than Neutrogena at the drug store and a LOT less than most over-hyped super pricy department store moisturizers. So what more do you want?

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    Seemed great at first, but then major, major breakouts!

    I might be allergic to something in this product. My skin turned awful while I used this and I was under a dermatologists care for months before it cleared. Here is the issue I think (aside from the allergy) - it dries out the skin and your skin compensates by becoming extra oily. Also this sounds strange, but I've tested this theory several times - something strange happens when you wear this on an airplane. My skin would get very oily then breakout into hives. I swear, even my Mom noticed it. I threw away all of their products and totally switched over to Clinique. I could not be happier. Be careful with this stuff. It's also very messy and my husband would complain about junk on our countertops.

  • Clinique Clarifying Powder Makeup

    Great, but light coverage. Lasts all day and does not irritate or cause breakouts. This is a staple product.

  • Aveda Inner Light Mineral Tinted Moisture SPF 15
    10.0

    Aveda Inner Light Mineral Tinted Moisture SPF 15

    Great for oily skin and good coverage

    I like the idea of tinted moisturizer, but most are too sheer or for dry skin. This is good for oily, acne-prone skin. Great coverage and I set it with clinque almost makeup powder and it is perfect. This also is great during vacation so you don't have to buy a darker color foundation.

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10
    9.0

    Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10

    Love it but Double Wear Light is even better

    The new, lighter version is even better. Very natural coverage - but coverage - and doesn't make me oily at all. Sometimes I mix it with my Clinique moisturizer for an even softer look. It's expensive, but worth it. And it lasts for 6 months or more. I used one for 9 months.

  • John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Shine Release Volumizing Shampoo with Light Enhancers

    The brunette shampoo and conditioners are amazing. This is a must-have product for me. I've gotten so many compliments about how shiny my hair is because of this line! Also I have acne-prone skin and some shampoos irritate, but this does not. Also smells great. I'm convinced now to only get shampoo at the drug store and no more $20 brands!

  • Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Bar for Face and Body

    I love the whole acne line and have been using it for almost one year. Works amazingly well and very gentle. I love the bar soap mostly for travel. However, it is more drying than the foaming cleanser. So be sure to use the oil-free moisturizer! It's also a great value - lasts forever.

  • Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Colour

    I love this product so much that I now have all colors. I use one every single day on my cheeks and eyes. Also great to travel with - gives you a nice shimmer and color when jetlagged. Love it!
