  • Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes - Hydrating

    This is actually my first time trying a facial wipe, and I wouldn't suggest buying any, not just this brand. I bought these for lazy nights when I don't feel like washing my face, but found that it's easier to just wash up instead. First of all, I don't feel that my face is fully clean afterwards because it leaves behind a residue and its hard to get all your eye makeup off without good old soap and water and without pulling on your eyes too much (even with just mascara on). I had to keep on rubbing and rubbing to get it all off. And then - even though it says it doesn't and other people have said it doesn't - it still stings around my eye area. I've just come to the conclusion that I'm not into wipes, because no matter how good they are, they will leave behind residue (i mean it's just physics, you're not rinsing your face off so where else is the product going to go?) and it's difficult to get eyemakeup off with them without torturing your eyes and harassing your eyelashes off.

  • Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Beauty Serum

    I couldn't wait to try this product after reading all the rave reviews, and after my first application (before bed) I was even more excited at how silky smooth my face felt. But the next morning when I woke up my face felt more greasy than usual and after a couple of days I had broken out in cystic acne which I never do, and was an obvious reaction to this product. I even had bumps around my eye area and on my neck, obviously unusual places to break out. I might also mention that the product in my bottle looked stragely separated, with the top 1/4 appearing yellowish and oily, and the bottom 3/4 pearly white. I attempted mixing and shaking to no avail. I have combination (slightly oily t-zone, some dryness in winter) sensitive skin and am 22 years old, so perhaps this product is just better suited to dry skin types, more mature skin, or people without sensitive skin. good luck!

  • CoverGirl TRUblend Liquid Makeup

    Pros: matches my skin perfectly, good consistency, doesn't streak or dry out, feels great, doesn't crease or settle in pores, doesn't break me out. Cons: wears off quickly, very light coverage not good for uneven skin tone.

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    At first, I thought I really liked this stuff. It felt and looked nice and didn't break me out. But upon looking at myself in different lighting during a long day of waitressing, I noticed it had caked up in my cheek creases from smiling and my face looked too shiny and pores looked magnified. After realizing this, I was upset no one had told me, and immediately ceased use of this product.

  • CoverGirl TRUBlend Minerals Loose Powder

    It's ok. It lasts forever (not on your face though), so more bang for your buck, but I wish mine would run out so I can try something new without feeling wasteful. And even though I got the same shade as my foundation (405) which matches me perfectly, I feel like this powder makes me look too yellow (I have pink undertones).

    Neutrogena Anti-Oxidant Age Reverse Eye Cream

    NOT for those with sensitive skin

    I never realized I had sensitive skin until I used this stuff. I felt it burn a bit when i put it on, but I thought that was normal, but after about 2 days of use i noticed that the skin under my eyes was turning red and felt like it was on fire! I wouldn't know if it worked or not because my skin can't take it.

  • Tom's of Maine Natural Long-Lasting Deodorant Stick

    Although it smells great and works pretty well for not having aluminum, I will never ever use it agian as it made my armpits peel! There is no way I had a sunburn in my armpits, but they were peeling like I did. You wouldn't think something natural would react like that, but boy did it. I have never had this reaction before with a deodorant. Don't suggest if you have even remotely sensitive skin.

    CoverGirl TRUconceal Concealer

    more like bottled foundation than concealer

    Although the color matched me perfectly and the consistancy was nice, it has no cover power. It's more like they took the foundation, put it in a different bottle, and sold it as concealer. I notice no difference when I put it on. Don't waste your time

  • Revlon Age Defying Concealer With Botafirm

    Revlon Age Defying Concealer With Botafirm

    Don't suggest for those with normal/oily skin

    Like the "Thorne" I bought the kind in the tube with spf 25, but unlike her I did not like it at all. It says it's moisturizing, but i didn't feel moisture, only grease. The greasy feeling lasted all day and made my eyes water because it felt so terrible. Maybe this would be better for someone with dry skin, whereas I have normal/oily. But even so, it should still absorb instead of remaining greasy throughout the day. Used it once, waste of money.
