    Eucerin Skin Calming Daily Moisturizing Creme

    Good for Itch, but doesn't hold moisture

    I used this last winter and loved it, but don't find it's working as well this year. It does relieve discomfort and is truly unscented, but I find that I have to apply it everyday- if not twice a day- for the effects to last (looking at the ingredients I don't see any of the standard humectants- from what I understand). I have to layer on Vaseline to lock into the moisture. Will switch to something else when this is finished.

  • Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB

    I brought this on vacation to limit the number of items I was carrying with me. I layered it on top of my normal face lotion, mostly to amp up the sun protection. Although I was on the beach, my face didn't burn. The coverage was also OK. However, I broke out like CRAZY and was very greasy in certain spots by mid-day. I'm sure that this was partially due to the humidity- but not entirely. I threw this away when I got home. You get what you pay for.

  • Almay Clear Complexion Pressed Powder

    The coverage is OK although it isn't enough to use without concealer. It also doesn't last very long and needs to be reapplied midday- which I am too lazy to do. On the plus side, it doesn't make my acne any worse nor does it cake over my concealer. I will finish the compact I have but will then try something else.

    Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer

    Great Tinted Moisturizer

    I have dry skin so I layered this over both lotion and primer and it still blended nicely without caking. My skin feels moisturized and it hasn't gotten the least but shinny throughout the day. The coverage is sheer so I still had to do touch-ups with concealer, but I like that it isn't obvious that I'm wearing foundation. Finishing with powder was also necessary because I was a bit too "dewy" without it. I guess we'll see if the retinol does anything over time.

  • Murad Acne Treatment Concealer

    I have quite a bit of acne and acne scars and this does a great job of concealing without aggravating my skin. It is rather think and has a slight orange tint, so you have to blend it well for it to not be noticeable (I wish it came in more colors!). Finally, it is rather pricey but it lasts me several months with daily use. Definitely a worthy investment!

  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45

    This is the only sunscreen I will purchase (usually in SPF 55). Although, it does leave some residue and a bit of that telltale sheen, it is very light compared to other brands and It stays put and won't run into your eyes. I only use this if I'm going to be outside all day but also like to mix it into my hand and face cream on days that I might be running a lot of errands. I actually just came back from a camping trip where I applied this just once in the mornings. Even though I swam and sweated (without reapplying- which is a no-no!) I didn't get burnt at all. As an added bonus- my boyfriends HATES wearing sunscreen because he can't stand feeling greasy, but I can actually get him to use this one!

  • Olay Complete Daily Defense All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 30 - Sensitive Skin

    I always wear a day lotion with SPF and have tried many different brands. This one is a classic and a keeper! It absorbs completely and keeps my face from drying out throughout the day. It's very light and great for sensitive, combination skin. I've been using this for a few months and it hasn't provoked any breakouts- actually, my face has never been clearer since switching from Aveeno to Olay lotions. I'm not sure if it will be thick enough to use come winter (when my face gets especially dry) but we'll see!

  • Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Extra-Strength Formula

    This didn't do anything for my hair except make it a little more shiny. The frizz was reduced slightly at first but didn't last for long. I definitely expected better results.

  • John Frieda Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme

    I have very thick, wavy hair that isn't usually that frizzy. However, I lost a lot of hair during a period of high stress and now that it's growing back, I have all of these awkward baby hairs that stick out all over the place. I keep this creme in my desk drawer and use it to smooth down the new growth. It definitely helps, but isn't any sort of magic potion.

  • Nature's Gate Hemp Nourishing Conditioner for Dry or Frizzy Hair

    I have thick, dry, wavy hair which I style with just a little wave enhancer and then let air dry. Its important for me to find a conditioner that is rich and moisturizing but won't make my hair heavy. I prefer using natural products and had read about how great hemp oil is for retaining moisture, so I bought this product when I was at Whole Foods one day. I was weirded out by this at first because it is surprisingly runny and coats hair almost as an oil would (as opposed to a traditional conditioner- hard to explain). The first few times I used it, it didn't seem to do much at all. However, after a few weeks I noticed definite results. It moisturizes very well and definitely reduced frizz. I also found that it rinsed out easily, made my hair healthier and easier to manage. My boyfriend also really liked it although he would prefer if the texture was a thicker like a regular conditioner.
