  • Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Normal/Dry Skin

    I want to love this foundation soooo much, because it works so beautifully for so many people. Unfortuenetly, it just doesn't to the trick for me. My skin is combo/dry so I thought this would work, it doesn't make my skin drier though, which is good. The color, Ivory (the fairest shade) matched my skin tone very well, maybe being a little on the darker side. So far, it seems perfect right? Not. The coverage is where it gets a little iffy. It does stay on a long time, like it promises. However I have very flushed cheeks, and it did not cover them at all. It didn't help conceal any of my acne, even with concelor on. And it flat out looked...cakey? I don't even know if that's the right word. It just didn't look natural on me, even after putting on Mineral Viel, which normally helps it a little. Overall, this is a good product. Good staying power, color, price. But it fell short on coverage for me.

  • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Facial Cleanser

    After reading reviews, I had very high expectations for this product. I purchased it at ULTA for around $6, which isn't bad considering how much product you get! I got home, took my makeup off with a wipe, and cleansed. This product cleanses your skin beautifully, leaving it soft & smooth, and smelling great! By the way, I purchased the Hydrating kind (yellow bottle). It does not dry out your skin, or leave it oily feeling. It brightens your complexion a bit, and leaves it healthy looking. However, it doesn't help with my acne like I need it to. Overall, I would reccomend this product to someone with mild acne, who is looking for a good overall cleanser. Good product!

  • Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
    4.0

    Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

    Average, that's it.

    I bought this cleanser on a whim at Sephora after reading all the reviews on it. There were two sizes avaliable. The larger size, being around $35. And the travel size, around $15. Not wanting to buy such a large bottle without being sure I liked it, I purchased the travel size. My skin is very fair, dry-combo, and very acne prone. This cleanser did nothing. I always take off my makeup with a wipe, because I believe a cleanser will do its best when it has a cleaner surface to focus on. But even with no makeup, this cleanser left my skin feeling oily, and gross. It also made my complexion very dull. I would not reccomend this cleanser to anyone, I was very disapointed.

  • Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15

    My skin is very dry/combo, and tends to break out often. I have tried several sunscreens/daily facial moisturizers that offered sunprotection, and many other benefits. However, none have lived up to their descriptions. This is different! I bought it for around $15 at Wal-Mart, which isn't too bad considering it does have sunscreen. I purchased it along with the Ultra Calming cleanser (which is great!) and won't be using anything else for a long time! This moistuzier provides excellent, long lasting, moisturization. It also really does help with redness! I've noticed a huge improvment in the redness of my skin since I've started using this! It has a nice, fresh smell, that I don't mind. And the fact that it provides SPF 15, something that all dernatologists reccomend to wear on a daily basis, only makes it better. It goes on flalwlessly under makeup, not leaving your skin an oily mess, unless you put on too much. I would highly reccomend this! Along with the cleanser!

  • Aveeno Ultra Calming Foaming Cleanser

    To start, I have combo/dry skin, which is sensitive, and enjoys breaking out. I have tried everything from drugstore brands, to department store brands, to dermatologist reccomended products. Nothing worked. After using a prescription cleanser and cream for 4 months, neither working, I gave up hope. I had read several reviews on this cleanser, and since it offered nothing special, was just a normal cleasner, I though I'd give it a try. I purchased it for around $6-7 at Wal-Mart, and I'd pay much more! This cleanser is everything I could ever want! It cleanses your skin without leaving residue, or dryness. It leaves it soft, and smooth. REMEMBER! It is not supposed to help with acne, but this product has cleared my skin more than any other product I've ever used. Yes, I still have acne, but it isn't as bad as it used to be. This cleanser, along with the Ultra Calming moisturizer, has turned my skin around. I would highly reccomend this!

  • Aveeno Positively Ageless Daily Exfoliating Cleanser
    5.0

    Aveeno Positively Ageless Daily Exfoliating Cleanser

    My least favorite Aveeno product..

    I don't know what happened with this product, I normally love Aveeno, but my skin hated this product! My skin is dry/combo and sensitive, I exfoliate daily to keep it clear. When my moth decided she didn't like this product very much, I said I would try it thinking that I would love it! Sadly, my high expectations were not met. It broke my skin out, and left it rather oily.. It didn't exfoliate either. Plus, the smell is so...different. It might work for someone else, but from my exoerience, it isn't good for dry skin. So I would imagine it wouldn't be great for oily skin either. Very disppointed.

  • Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10 Acne Medication

    Just like the Continuous Control Acne Cleanser, this did not work at all for my skin. It not only dried my skin terribily, but it made all my pimples worse, and practically bleached the skin around it. My skin was uneven for weeks after using it. I even tried the walmart/target versions, and they did the same, but not as bad. If you have dry, senesitve skin, please don't buy this.

  • Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser
    1.0

    Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser

    If there was a 0 rating, this would be it.

    First off, if you're like me, and have fair, sensitive skin DON'T USE THIS. I cannot stress that enough! This stuff made my skin RED, dry, and flaky. I bought this thinking that since it had strong medication, and wasn't rated badly, that it would work for my acne. Oh boy was I wrong. After using it in the shower, my skin felt almost too clean, and when I got out my face looked terrible. It was bloody murder red. It took a few days to actually recover from it, and that was with using Clinique Redness Solutions Foundation and Dove Sensitive Skin bar to wash my face. I would not reccomend this to anyone with dry, sensitive skin. It might work for oily skin, though. But if you don't have oily skin, beware.

  • Clean & Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser For Sensitive Skin

    It seems like cream facial cleansers have always worked best on my skin, and when I ran out of Noxema, I thought I'd try this. First off, it has a very strong scent, but it isn't a big deal. It cleaned my skin very well, and left it smooth and clear. The tube lasted me about a month, and my skin looked decent the entire time. It helped a little with my acne, I didn't have a horrible breakout while using it, which was good. It never dried my skin out either. Overall, I would reccomend it.. Although I probably won't be repurchasing it.

  • CoverGirl CG Smoothers Concealer

    This is a good concelor for drier skin, that needs decent coverage. Although this isn't what I use on a daily basis because it's heavy, this is a good product. It goes well under powder, but not under liquid or cream foundation for me. The coverage is medium, redness vanishes, however it didn't help at all to cover my blemishes. Overalll, this is a great concelor for skin that doesn't have many blemishes or problem spots.
