Bring it back!!!
This was my favorite drugstore mascara, and my overall close second after Lancome Definicils. I loved the brush--make that MADLY loved the brush! I loved the ease of application, and the fact that it stayed on all day and didn't flake, and I especially loved that it didn't clump on my long but too-light lashes and gave them volume without taking out the curl or making them stick together. I wish Covergirl would bring this one back from the dead and get rid of Lashblast, which is a nightmare of clumps and irritates my contact lenses.

Rescues my sensitive skin every time!
Having fair, super-sensitive combination skin and a penchant for new products doesn't always mix. In fact, sometimes my skin gets downright rebellious. Cetaphil saves my bacon every time. It doesn't lather, which takes getting used to, but stick with it for a week and it's totally worth it. It leaves my skin soft, balanced, dewy but not oily, and it doesn't burn or sting. I also like that it's completely fragrance-free. When I try a new product that angers my skin to the point where even tepid water stings, this stuff is the Zen of cleansers that helps calm everything down. (It's also gentle on a sunburn when I've accidentally stayed out past my sunblock's expiration.) In winter Cetaphil is my everyday cleanser, and although I switch to an Erno Laszlo bar in the summer, I always keep a bottle of Cetaphil around for skin emergencies, along with Cetaphil moisturizer. I like that Cetaphil doesn't react with other products, so when I'm planning to test drive something new, I make a point of cleansing my face with Cetaphil first. Also, when I need to exfoliate, I just mix a mild scrub in with it and get great results. This is one of my favorite products, and I see why so many dermatologists like it too.

Works equally well for the long but light lashed people and less lash endowed!
Love this stuff! I have long but light lashes that sometimes need a little help with volume, so it can be tricky finding a mascara that does the job without leaving me spider-eyed. Been there, done that at all price points, tried 'em all , but this is the one I keep going back to. One coat usually does it for me, but my less-endowed-lashed friends get equally great results with two coats. Easy to apply, doesn't flake or irritate my contact lenses, stays on through applying drops to my lenses, and looks great all day. Everything smudges on me because of my contacts, but it probably is a bit less than the norm. (A lot depends on the undereye moisturizer used.) Hands down, it's the mascara most of my friends name as their favorite, and I agree. If there's a minus, it's the price, so I time my purchases with points deals or during "gift with purchase" campaigns.

Good for sensitive combo skin
My skin is extremely sensitive combination, with an oily T-zone in the summer and is much drier in winter. This product helps normalize things in the winter, and because I like the texture, SPF level, and brightening effect, I wanted to find a way to use it in the summer. My summer combo: an oil control toner in the T-zone (I use Erno Laszlo Light Controlling Lotion) followed by an all-over face and neck application of this. While it has no effect on my redness, it definitely brightens my fair skin and over time it got rid of some old acne marks. On the minus side, I wish this product was in a tube instead of a pump bottle, as the pump doesn't empty the bottle well and leaves a lot of product in the bottle at the end. Twice the pump mechanism has failed completely mid-bottle. I've become adept at using a clean coffee stirrer to dig out the product remaining in the bottle, but I shouldn't have to. I'm a repeat buyer of this product, but it would be great to get rid of the coffee stirrers!
