  • Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser for Face and Eyes

    I kept reading about this cleanser in magazines and online so I decided I'd ask for a sample to see if it's really as good as claimed. I always use toner so I'll know if the product leaves any makeup or dirt behind along with the fact that my face feels dry after I wash it and face cream won't help. I used it on the day of my graduation, so I was actually wearing foundation and the whole nine yards, which I rarely do. I washed my face as usual and after I was done I used my trusty toner. To my surprise I saw that there was not a single trace of make up on the cotton ball, which I had yet seen from any cleanser I've used. Since it's kinda pricey I didn't buy it at first and tried to find another product with the same efficiency at the drugstore, but nothing seems to work as well as this. The only reason I gave it nine starts instead of ten is because it says that you don't need a toner with this, but it left the skin on my chin feeling kind of tight and I still needed my toner. I have very oily skin on my nose and forehead and average skin elsewhere and it does a good job at keeping it balanced, and had less acne after a while of using it.

    Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser

    Not As Deep As It Claims

    I used to use this cleanser a few years ago and thought it was great. I stopped using it, but decided I would start again so I told my sister to go buy me some at the store. She got the orange liquid one instead of this one, and I felt like it left my skin dry, but when I used my toner, I saw that it actually removed all of my makeup so I just kept using it. After I was done with that bottle, I bought this cream cleanser. It left my face soft, which I liked, but I always use a toner, so I did after washing with this cleanser and I saw that the toner was removing my makeup that I thought was already gone. I put more toner thinking maybe I missed a spot, but it kept removing everything, it was as if I didn't even wash my face at all. The next time I used it I washed my face for a longer period and put an excessive amount of the product to see if it would remove my make up as well as its liquid counterpart. I swiped my face with a cotton ball dampened with toner and sure enough my make up still wasn't removed. It claims to clean deeply and remove make up, but it did none of that at all. I was expecting better from this, especially from all the hype it gets.

  • MAC Plush Lash Mascara

    MAC Plush Lash Mascara

    Smears To Easily

    This mascara separates lashes pretty well, but I have to work harder with this mascara than others to get the same length and volume. Multiple coats are a must. It also smears very easy, and I always seem to end up with raccoon eyes. I wouldn't recommend it to people that wear contacts, like me, because when I wash it off the product always finds a way to get into my eyes. I've never had a mascara get in to my eyes as much as this one, and I wash my face the same way as always. I don't wear eyeliner or any other type of eye makeup so I know it's the mascara.

  • Victoria's Secret Hydrating Body Lotion

    I use the Acai Berry & Mongolia and it smells great. It also leaves my skin softer than any of the other VS lotions I've used. It it rather pricey for the amount, but it's worth it especially since it's natural.

  • Diorshow Black Out Waterproof Mascara

    Diorshow Black Out Waterproof Mascara

    Ehh not as great as I thought it would be...

    It did give my eyelashes a nice curl and length, but my lashaes area already naturally kind of long. I had to apply a few layers to get this effect though and it was sort of clumpy. This will sound strange since it's waterproof, but during the last day of school I started crying and the mascara smeared to my suprise. When I apply it I usually get mascara on my eyelids, but I just usually remove that with toner. This mascara was almost impossible to get off my skin though. I returned it to Nordstrom, because it's hard to get off my skin, but yet when I cry it smears. I don't think the lady believed me, but I probably wouldn't have either.

    Biore Blemish Treating Astringent

    Best I've Ever Used

    I thought toner was just toner until I found this. I just grabbed another one when I didn't find anymore of this stuff and that was a mistake, because I broke out. I have a very oily T Zone as well as acne and I guess without realizing it actually helps control it. Plus I like the refreshing feel it leaves, which I haven't been able to find in other brands. I also Iike the top of the bottle, because it lets a good amount come out, where in other toners I've used the product comes out way to easily.

    MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

    It's good, but the Pro is better

    I have acne scars all over my T Zone as well as extremely oily nose/forehead, and I think this product did a good job...until I tried the new Pro Longwear foundation MAC has. After I used this one again I felt like it didn't cover as much and I started to break out.

    CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    Not The Best For Contact Users

    This mascara does make your eyelashes long and gives them a nice curl, but I had to apply about 2 or 3 coats of mascara to get the same effect as my Clinique mascara. This mascara smears very easily and it tends to flake after a few hours. It gets in my eyes very easily, but I don't know if most drugstore mascaras are like this, becuase it's my first one.
