    Befine Cooling Peel Off Mask

    Smoothness in a bottle

    I got this kit for around $5 when CVS was having a sale and for a price that cheap, it was more than worth it. THe first time I tried it, I did irritate my skin to the point of looking like a tomato for the first few hours, but I attribute that to leaving the stuff on for too long. Alpha hydroxy acids are dangerous when left unattended! Despite the irritation, my face had never felt smoother. It was the most excellent exfoliation ever. I give it a 9 for the redness, but the effect subsides, so if used before bedtime, you should be fine in the morning.

  • Lumene Arctic Touch Deep Cleansing Peat Mask

    I give it an 8 because I've had better masks. The color is dark, kinda like mud. It's more liquidy than mud and you should really pile the stuff on. It's kinda tingly at first but pleasant. Seems to work on blackheads though once a week isn't enough. Skin feels refreshed but it does nothing for moisture levels.

  • Napoleon Perdis China Doll Foundation

    I got this 50% off at a Sephora sale and was very satisfied with the purchase. I dunno if it's worth the original price ($50) because the tube seems a little small for that amount of money. Coverage is just right and looking at pictures with this stuff on, the face really does seem porcelain like a china doll! I got the lightest shade; it's a little too yellow but when used over the entire face, there doesn't seem to be an issue with color inconsistency.

  • N.Y.C. New York Color Ultra Moist LipWear Lipstick

    I had this lipstick in Firefly and the color was pretty eye-catching, but after awhile my lips felt a bit too dry. I tried wearing a thick lip balm underneath it, but then it seemed like the color faded faster. Although for the price, I wouldn't mind buying every color.

  • The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream

    I have combo/oily skin which turned flaky (yet was still oily in the T-zone) in the winter and I worried about finding a moisturizer that would establish the right balance of moisture but not clog my pores and overwork the oil glands. This has been perfect for getting rid of dry patches and my forehead doesn't flake anymore, especially when used together with the Vitamin E serum. This is probably good for all skin types.

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash
    10.0

    The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash

    Natural solution for acne

    I bought this on a whim, since I can never stick to one product religiously. THe smell is offputting at first, but anyone should be able to get used to it; after a while it starts to smell kinda good. It is only after I ran out that I began to notice I was flaring up w/ acne again and started to miss the tea tree oil because I didn't realize how much it actually helped my oil control and pimple eruptions. When I look back at pictures of myself while using this stuff, my face is noticeably less blemish ridden. You'd be surprised how much better tea tree oil works than salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. This is one product that I may just have to buy again. Also, $10 isn't bad - the bottle lasts for a long time.

  • Lumene Cleansing Radiant Touch Moisturizing Cream Cleanser

    I picked this cleanser up for the winter because my skin was too dry and flaky (I usually get products intended for combo/oily skin and this one is for NORMAL skin). THe only reason I give this cleanser a 9 and not a 10 is because I'm not sure that it's oil free, but either way my oily T-Zone seems fine. ALso, the smell is a turn-off, but the skin feels very smooth afterwards. I do notice a decent glow after I wash my face.

  • Maybelline New York Define-A-Brow Gel

    This made the eyebrows glisten, but didn't hold them in place as much as I would have liked. THey slicked back nicely, but the gel can easily be wiped off.

  • DDF Sulfur Therapeutic Mask

    I have combo skin, so whenever doing a facial, I apply this on my T-zone and a moisturizing mask on the cheeks. (Although this mask wouldn't dry out my cheeks anyway.) Try steaming the face and washing w/ a scrub before using the mask and the results will be incredible!

  • Jane Be Pure Mineral Makeup

    The makeup looks absolutely GREAT on the face - flawless, smooth and good coverage. I use a separate brush with it, however, because the applicator sponge is weird. Also, it's good for oily skin, but after a few hours, the shine returns so reapply!
