  • Alba Aloe & Green Tea Oil-Free Moisturizer
    9.0

    Alba Aloe & Green Tea Oil-Free Moisturizer

    Not perfect, but very, very close

    I have very specific skin care needs. I am almost 60 and yet still having breakouts, so I am careful about the products I use. I have been using this moisturizer for over a month and find that my breakouts have become rare and I still see a nice anti-aging effect with the aloe and green tea, It is a bit slow to soak into the skin, but not terrible. The positive effects definitely outweigh the negatives and it seems like such a nice mild products that I use it on my neck, as well. For the amount of product and efficacy, I thought the price was fair and it seems to last quite awhile.

  • Aveeno Positively Ageless Eye Serum
    10.0

    Aveeno Positively Ageless Eye Serum

    Love this soothing, smoothing eye serum

    I ran out of my usual eye serum and this caught my attention. I have been using it for almost two weeks and really like how it seems to soften the lines around my eyes. I have had no problems with sensitivity to the product and like how soothing it is. I am currently using it at night before bed and in the morning after my cleansing routine. Wish all my impulse buys worked this well. I do like Aveeno products, but don't routinely search them out. I just might start using the brand more.

  • Aveeno Positively Ageless Youth Perfecting Moisturizer with SPF30
    8.0

    Aveeno Positively Ageless Youth Perfecting Moisturizer with SPF30

    Great product for the body, caution advised for facial use.

    I do have sensitive, acne-prone skin so that said, I did find that I am reluctant to use this routinely on my face. I used it once on my face, but won't again after an acne flare. I like the 30 spf and find it performs great on my body, even on the sensitive neck and chest area.

  • Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm
    9.0

    Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm

    Love the honey scent and it is very hydrating and protecting.

    I too really liked the scent and the feel of this lip balm. I found it to be protective and hydrating. It stays on my lips a fairly long time and is a great value for the money.

  • CoverGirl Clean Liquid Makeup, Oil Control

    I switched to a mineral powder foundation years ago, but found myself on vacation in a hot location and needed something that wouldn't break out my skin. I am somewhat leery of liquids after using the powder, but thought I'd try this. I liked the lightness and it provided adequate coverage, though it could be better. I won't be afraid to try a liquid again, but still like the mineral powder makeup I'm currently using better. I thought the color choices available were good and it did stay on nicely in the heat too.

  • 40 Carrots Carrot and Cucumber Eye Gel
    9.0

    40 Carrots Carrot and Cucumber Eye Gel

    Good addition to eye care routine

    I didn't know what to expect after I read the last review for this product. I use the gel underneath my eye moisturizer and feel that it helps the moisturizer itself work better. I have been using this product for about 4 months and have noticed a marked improvement in the fine lines and crepiness around my eyes. I have two sisters, one is 6 years younger and one is 10 years younger than I am and my six years younger sister told me that I looked younger than both of them. I don't know if it is due solely to this product, but I'm sold. I will continue to purchase and use this product.

  • Nexxus Alluring Curls Curl Creating Gel Elixir
    10.0

    Nexxus Alluring Curls Curl Creating Gel Elixir

    Excellent product for those of us with wavy/curly hair

    I decided to stop fighting my natural curls and waves. Problem was, my curles are inconsistent and I felt that I either needed to use a curling iron or straighten the curls to achieve a consistent look. Enter Nexxus Alluring Curls Styling Elixir. It makes my natural curls and waves more consistent and my hair just behaves so much better without the damaging effects of a curling iron which takes too much time anyway. I love this product and think the whole Nexus line is very good and is better in many ways than some of the more high-end products.

  • Softlips Lip Protectant/Sunscreen SPF 20
    7.0

    Softlips Lip Protectant/Sunscreen SPF 20

    Comparable to Burt's Bees, but no staying power,

    I actually like the color choices better than Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers, but this does not last long at all compared to that product. Good moisturization, just wish it lasted longer.

  • bareMinerals SPF 20 Concealer
    10.0

    bareMinerals SPF 20 Concealer

    This is one of my favore BE products.

    Works great as a concealer especially if used with the correct brush. Conceals beautifully and stays put throughout the day. I give this a huge thumbs-up. As I wrote in my first BE review about the foundation, I resisted trying BE initially, but now I'm a convert and I do really like the Bisque shade.

  • Pond's Exfoliating Clean Sweep, Cucumber Cleansing Towelettes
    5.0

    Pond's Exfoliating Clean Sweep, Cucumber Cleansing Towelettes

    Found results to be mediocre compared to the Ponds Original Clean Towelettes

    I have had a hard time finding the Ponds Original Clean Towelettes and purchased these as a substitute. I found that the exfoliating was too harsh for my skin and the fragrance seemed to exacerbate that irritation. There are better towelettes out there and I don't think this is one of them. The Ponds Original Clean towelettes or Basis makes a great cleansing pad, for example. I haven't been able to the Ponds originals though.
