    Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

    Dermatologist recommended isn't always the best for my skin

    I have very sensitive and acne-prone skin. After an intense pulse light treatment, my dermatologist recommended I use this cleansesr because it's so gentle. My skin is accustomed to the exfoliating and cleansing powers of Clinique. After two days of using this, my pores are clogged and my skin starts to break out. Once I recover from the IPL treatment, I can't wait to get back to Clinique to clear out my skin. I do not recommend this product if you are acne-prone or need a cleanser to really remove makeup.

    BareMinerals All-Over Face Color

    Great color, big mess

    I have used this product in a variety of colors. True is my favorite. Warmth is basically the bronzer color. If they were in a pan as a solid instead of a loose powder with a pop open lid, I would give it a 10. The loose powder makes it messy and I really don't like having to screw a lid on and off. If it was just about the product inside the container, the only thing I would change is the consistency. Put it in the form of a NARS container, and I would be happy!

  • Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

    Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

    Worth the hype

    So, I had heard about this eyelash curler for a long time, and I couldn't imagine what would make one curler so much better than another. I recently broke down and purchased it, giving in to my curiosity. Wow! Before, I thought little pinches here and there were part of curling my lashes. However, I think it's the shape of the tool. Ever since I purchased this curler, I haven't pinched my eyelid once. I love. It gives great curl, and really makes my eyes pop with mascara. I don't say this about many products, but this one is worth all the hype. I recommend giving it a try!

  • Bare Escentuals Faux Tan Sunless Tanner

    Bare Escentuals Faux Tan Sunless Tanner

    The perfect self tanner

    I LOVE this product and recommend it to all of my girlfriends. I even gave a bottle to one of my family members. You can see where you put it, it doesn't smell bad, and it works! No orange tint at all. When I'm done, I just scrub my hands with a sugar scrub, then soap, and there's no tell tale signs of the 'self tanner' hands. I've been using this since it came out and I highly recommend it!

  • Principal Secret Reclaim Revolutionary Day Cream w/SPF 15

    No anti aging product is worth break outs. I want my skin to look better, not worse! Consistency of the product and scent were nice. Results... not good.

  • Principal Secret Reclaim Revolutionary Night Cream

    I started using the entire Reclaim line. Within one week, my skin started breaking out. No thanks! I will never trade aging for acne.

  • Principal Secret Reclaim Total Facial Cleanser

    Love it! Very light scent. Creamy. Removes makeup. Skin does not feel tight at all after using this. Use it with your Clarisonic and you will be pleased!

  • Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Cleansing Foam

    This did remove makeup and I loved the foaming feel. However, after using it and drying off my face, my skin was flaky and dry. Also, it has a strong scent.

    Philosophy Amazing Grace Eau de Parfum

    it's okay, but not my favorite

    I know this one has a following, but it's truly not my favorite. I prefer the Pure Grace scent (the soap and water clean scent). This one is a little too sweet for me. I feel a little obvious like everyone will know I'm wearing perfume.

  • Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Facial

    Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Facial

    Just used it for the first time

    I have heard about this product for a couple of years and finally bought a trial size from Sephora. Small tube but a little goes a long way. It immediately tingled when I started smoothing it on my face, and that only intensified. I can see why they may a 'gentle' version. The full strength version is not ideal for sensitive skin. When I rinsed it off after a couple of minutes, I see smooth, shiny skin. Not tight. Not painful. It feels like it would post facial. Nice! The only reason I don't give it a 10 is because of the price.
