  • Revlon PhotoReady Makeup

    This is definitely one of my top 5 drugstore foundations. I loved the packaging and the pump. The forumation of the foundation however, had microscopic shimmer in it. I'm not sure what the point of that was, but it wasn't noticeable, unless you were in the sun. The coverage is moderate, making this a good everyday foundation. I repurchased once, but that was it. Very much a "meh" foundation, so I continued my search for something better. However, if you budget only allows for drugstore foundations, I would go for this one, as well as Revlon's ColorStay.

  • Make Up For Ever HD Foundation Invisible Cover Foundation

    This is my go-to foundation when I'm taking photos. Because there's no SPF in the formula, there's zero chance of your face being whitecast when there's flash photography involved. So many things I love about this product, I don't know where to start! I love the amazing range of colors in this line -- it has to be one of the most diverse ranges I've ever seen in a foundation line. The packaging is functional and clean. The foundation has a satin finish, making your skin look natural when it's on. The coverage is moderate, but still buildable. The product does not break me out, which is a plus! I apply with a synthetic buffing brush, and the result is perfect. It's a bit on the pricey side, but I'm willing to splurge on the few products that I can't live without!

    Laura Geller Balance - N - Brighten

    Great Alternative to Tinted Moisturizers

    I'd had it with tinted moisturizers and was on the hunt for a face product to wear on those lazy days or just to run errands. This is a pretty great alternative to tinted moisturizers. If provides sheer coverage and makes your skin feel like it has nothing on. I apply this with a MAC 109 brush and buff it into my skin. The application is pretty much fullproof and the result gives you just "enough" coverage. Would highly recommend, especially those with combo/oily to oily skin.

    Benefit boo boo zap!

    Did absolutely nothing!

    I fell for the cute packaging of Benefit again! I loved the sooting camphor smell of this product and the fact that it did not irritate my skin any further, but it didn't abolutely nothing for blemishes. I would definitely not recommend this to anyone.

  • Dermalogica Clean Start Bedtime for Breakouts

    Returned this product after a week's use. It did abosolutely nothing for my skin. I'm thinking it might be better suited for younger, teenage acne issues.

  • Boscia Willow Bark Breakout Treatment

    Didn't work for my occasional spot. If was extremely gentle, and maybe that's why. Based on the great ingredients, I really wanted this product to work, but unfortunatlely it didn't.

  • Peter Thomas Roth Acne Spot and Area Treatment

    I gave this product a good month of use before I gave up. At 25, I was dealing with increasing breakouts and looking for a miracle product. This product has some amazing ingredients, I but I didn't find that it helped to significantly reduce my acne. It smelled horrible, but was not drying when I applied to my face. Acne products are so fickle in the sense that what works for one person may not work for another. I heard amazing things about this proudct and was sad that it didn't work for me. If you're interested, I encourage you to get a sample first.

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

    I deal with the occasional pimple here and there, and was looking for a spot treatment with more natural ingredients. Know that the Body Shop's Tea Tree Oil is not pure TTO, it's a smaller concentration of it with loads of other ingredients. Regardless, I still tried the product and did not have any positive results. The formula did not make my skin break out any more (thank goodness), but it did not clear up any spots faster than usual.

    Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment

    Great for spot treatments!

    I've always dealt with the occasionaly spot here and there, but in my mid-twenties, it seemed to get worse. I turned to Kate Somerville products, expensive, but some of the best in the industry. This little bottle saved my life! It won't make a pimple disappear overnight, but it will dramatically reduce it's size and help shorten the healing time. Sulfur has been my saving grace ingredient to fight acne, and this product has one of the highest concentrations available. This product is best suited for those who get an occassional spot or two, and not for those with servere full-faced acne.

  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20

    I really don't see what the buzz is about this product. I've given this product a try more than once and still can't find any redeeming qualities about it. I understand that it's labeled a "tinted moisturizer", but you might as well leave the "tinted" out because it provides zero coverage or ability to even out skin tone. You'd be better off just applying a regular moisturizer. The color gives my face a very white-cast, which I'm sure can be due to the SPF in the formula. Then the product doesn't even set, it remains damp on your face, unless you set it with powder, which in my opinion depletes the purpose of an "apply and go" tinted moisturizer. Laura Mercier is an amazing brand with great quality products, but this one with always leave me scratching my head.
