    DHC Acerola Gel

    okay moisturizer

    I bought this product because the DHC catalog recommended it for oily skin, and it also said that this is a brightening product that would reduce the look of sun discoloration. It was okay as a moisturizer, though I still got breakouts while I was using it, and I really didn't see any difference in my sun damage after using it for a while.

    DHC Velvet Skin Coat

    great primer

    This primer has a smooth, velvety texture, it fills in lines and covers imperfections, and gives you a nice, smooth canvas for your makeup. It is definitely one of the better primers I've tried. My only complaint is that I prefer to use products that have a little SPF in them for sun protection, but other than that, this is a good product

  • DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

    DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

    deep cleans well

    It is really important to read the directions for this product, because otherwise it's easy to use it incorrectly and think that it just doesn't work. You are supposed to use a small amount on your face before washing, to deep clean and remove makeup, so you do need a separate face was as well. That said, it is a really good product. It removed all of my makeup and left my skin feeling soft and smooth. I was nervous about trying it, as I have oily skin, and I was afraid it would make me break out, but it didn't. It's a bit expensive, and it doesn't have the greatest smell, but it's an effective product that does what it is supposed to do.

  • Curel Ultra Healing Moisture Lotion

    Curel Ultra Healing Moisture Lotion

    favorite winter lotion

    I love to use this lotion during the winter months when my skin gets really dry and itchy. It has a smooth texture that is not too runny or too thick, it goes on smooth and absorbs quickly, and it has a pleasant but not overwhelming scent that won't interfere with perfume if you choose to wear some. This is also one of the only lotions I've tried that stops my skin from getting itchy, which can be an issue for me during the winter months. It is also reasonably priced, and it's a real bonus that I can usually find it in a bigger bottle at Costco or Sam's Club. This is one of those products that I keep on coming back to, even after trying others, it's a keeper

  • L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray

    I'd read all the hype about this hairspray so decided I had to give it a try. Maybe it was just over-hyped so much that I expected too much, but honestly I didn't see anything about this hairspray to make it any better than most of the other products I've tried. First off, I did not care for the smell. I really didn't feel that it made my hair look smoother, and it did not give me all day hold. Don't get me wrong, it was okay, but for the price, which isn't super-expensive, but also isn't the least expensive, and for all the hype, I really expected more

  • Suave Professionals Color Protection Shampoo

    This product cleans my color treated hair without drying it out, makes it soft and doesn't fade my color. I like to switch it off with other more expensive products to save money. This product is a great value

  • Suave Professionals Color Protection Conditioner

    This conditioner makes my hair feel soft and keeps my color vibrant. I like to switch off with more expensive products to save money, and I wouldn't say that this is as good as some of the best ones, though it is just as good as some of the more average expensive products out there. A good value for the money that does the job

  • Proactiv Repairing Treatment
    5.0

    Proactiv Repairing Treatment

    good for emerging acne

    I have acne-prone skin, and I tried the Proactiv line. I did not care for the line as a whole, but I do keep a bottle of this hand for those times when I can feel a pimple starting to emerge. A little dab of this does the trick, and keeps it from erupting into a huge whitehead as long as I catch it on time. I works for my son as well. I won't use this on my entire face daily, as I found it to be way too strong, but I do keep a bottle of it around for the occasional break out. It works better for me as a spot treatment

  • Ulta 3-in-1 Shower Smoothies

    I have this product in several scents. They smell great, lather nicely, and don't dry out my skin. I haven't tried this as a shampoo, and probably won't, as I have dry hair and would not trust it to a product like this one. I do like these as a body wash and bubble bath, though. My kids like them too, especially the chocolate shake flavor. They make the entire bathroom smell good, and they go on sale often enough to make them affordable and fun

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Blemish Cream

    This is the only product I've found that combines anti-acne and anti-aging ingredients that actually does both for me. It can be a bit irritating when you first start using it, and you only need a really small dab, so the tube lasts a long time, but it does keep my face clear and it smooths out the fine lines. Until I found this product, I had to resign myself to either treating the acne or the fine lines, but not both, because products for the acne exacerbated the lines, and anti-aging products made the acne worse. I only use this product at night, because the retinol is strong and sun exposure can make your skin red. I also don't use this on my neck, since I don't really break out there and was getting red, irritated skin when I did use it there. It works well on my face, though, keeps the acne away and smooths the wrinkles, so I use this as my night cream, and I use a separate moisturizer for the skin on my neck. I hope Neutrogena never changes this formula, because I've never found another product that works as well as this one for me.
