  • CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM

    I've been using this moisturizer for a couple years. It's very light yet it moisturizes extremely well. I initially purchased this because of the niacinimide it contains. What had kept me coming back is how great is makes my skin look and feel. I use an AHA cream before I put this on. I wake up every morning to fresh, glowing skin. I even got my husband to use this and now it's the only moisturizer he will use! I highly recommend this!

  • CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM With SPF 30

    I've been using this moisturizer for a month now. So far, so good! My normally combination skin has been drier lately so I decided to try something different. I use and love the CeraVe PM moisturizer and the foaming cleanser they make, so I thought the daytime moisturizer would make a great addition to my routine. I like the spf 30 and the ingredients (niacinimide, ceremides, and hyaluronic acid to name a few) are all great for keeping skin healthy. The only complaint I have is how thick the product is. One pump is enough for just my face, then another pump for my neck and chest. This isn't a problem, but the product itself is so thick I have a little trouble applying it. But this isn't enough of an issue to stop using it!

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    I jumped on the mineral makeup bandwagon five or six years ago and fell off within six months of starting. Bare Minerals Original was the first and last MMU I used. Like everyone else, the first application looked so pretty; I instantly fell in love. But this didn't last. First, every time I used this my face would itch. Not just a minor itch, but a burning, uncomfortable itch that wouldn't subside. Then I began erupting in cystic acne which highly unusual for me. Actually, I'd never had cystic acne before using this. I began doing research and found that many others were having similar reactions. The funny part is that I didn't put two and two together until I read another person's review on Bare Minerals. She was having the same problems with her skin and it turns out that an ingredient in this (bismuth oxychloride) can be an irritant for some people. I stopped using this and my skin cleared up, but it took a while. I will never use MMU again after that. I guess I'm a liquid foundation kind of girl!

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Powder

    I used to use this powder as a foundation awhile back. I used the shade N4 which matched my summer skin well. When first applied it looks much lighter than when it has a chance to "heat" up on the skin. Then it oxidizes at least a full shade darker. For me, this would turn a weird pinkish color on me. I didn't like that. Also, the powder has no oil control. I was constantly blotting and touching up when I used this. Lastly, there are sparkles in this. I don't like sparkles or shine in my foundations or powders at all, so as soon as I saw myself in sunlight with a sparkling face, my relationship with this powder was over. I gave it 5 stars because it does have decent coverage for a pressed powder and there are several shades available for most skin tones. If oil control and sparkles aren't an issue, this is a good powder.

  • CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation

    I have to praise Covergirl for this foundation. The company has really improved its products in the last few years and this foundation proves it. I'm fair with neutral undertones (for reference, NW20 in MAC is a good match but slightly too pink). I picked the color 810 Classic Ivory. It matches me perfectly. I have combination skin that leans toward dry during the winter, oily in the summer. This foundation lasts all day with only one blotting with an oil-blotting sheet. I have good skin with some redness around my nose and on the apples of my cheeks. I also get the monthly blemish or two. This covered all the redness, a blemish and my slightly dark under-eye circles. This is the first time in a while that I've been able to skip concealer! So far I love this product and I hope others will love it just as much. One word of caution: In my opinion, a whole pump at one time is way too much product. This foundation dries quickly, so I would use less than a pump at a time and work in sections on the face. I used a whole pump the first time and it looked a bit thick and cakey. It wasn't a big deal; I was able to sheer it out with a damp sponge and it looked perfect. Other than that, this is a terrific and beautiful foundation! Thanks Covergirl!
