Here are all my reviews:
  • Neutrogena Shine Control Primer

    Its not great, but it HELPS. It doesn't completely control the shine, but it helps with not producing so much of it. I've learned to use a small amount in sections because the first time I used it, I had a lot of the product on my hands and rubbed it all over my face, and it left all this white, ashy looking stuff all over. I had to wash my face and start all over. I assume its the rice, so I had to learn to not be so overzealous. Because it was inexpensive and I generally like Neutrogena products, I won't say its horrible, but it could be better.

  • Mary Kay Signature Concealer

    I. Love. This. Concealer. I have never said that about any other concealer I've ever used. Ever. The price is great, and you don't need much of the product at all to get the coverage you need. I use Bronze 2 and it is slightly darker than my uneven skin, but it covers so beautifully that I didn't need to add foundation on afterwards, only powder (I have only skin). I think I found my new favorite and probably won't go back to other brands I have been using.

  • Mary Kay TimeWise Matte-Wear Liquid Foundation

    At first I thought this was a little too orange for my skin, but once it settles (in less than one minute) it blends in really well and looks good. You don't need to use a lot of the product (that was the mistake I was making) so I only use it where I really need it and just blend a little in the spots that I don't. Will definitely be making a repeat purchase.

  • Borghese Fango Active Mud for Face and Body

    A friend recommend this to me, and for a while it started to clear up pimples that I had at the time. it always made my skin look brighter and feel softer after each use. I was almost using it daily because I liked it so much. I ended up buying it for myself. Trust me, this jar will last you for ever. My skin starts to GLOW after consistent use. When you clean your skin very well before applying, you can feel it working. It burns a bit at first but its not like a "your skin is on fire and you have to remove it right now" kind of feeling. Its awesome.

  • Vaseline Petroleum Jelly Original

    Vaseline Petroleum Jelly Original

    Some things are irreplaceable

    My Vaseline use goes back about 25 years when my mom used to slather it on my and my sister's faces before we went out to face the cold north east winters. Now I use it on my feet at night with thick socks and on my hands with cotton gloves. It gives me moisture and softness that I've never gotten from lotions, creams, or my nail salon. Its irreplaceable. And now, when my dry skin starts to act up, I mix the Vaseline with some sea salt an use it as a scrub. Needless to say it makes a HUGE difference. There are somethings you just can't go without and Vaseline is one of them.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Rocket Mascara

    Price wise, the product is fine. I even like the formula, but I cannot stand this brush. Its too big in all the wrong places. The bristles are not extended long enough to catch my inner lashes and therefore creates a globby mess. I was afraid that I would stab myself in the eye with it. I will not purchase this again, primarily because I don't like the brush.

  • Freeman Bare Foot Lemon + Sage Foot Scrub

    I gave it one star because it really smells like lemon & sage, which is great and relaxing. And and another star for price-to-amount ratio. But that's it. The product is water based, so it dries quickly and leaves a watery, sticky, not-so-good feeling on your hands afterwards. I had to run and wash my hands after I used it. About 10 mintues after application, or maybe less, its completely dried up and your left wondering if you even applied anything to your feet in the first place. It does NOT help restore moisture like it claims.

  • Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

    Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

    I'm a little scared....

    Beacause I think this is actually improving my skin. I have to be honest, I hate the price, but I've noticed that ever since I started using this that my skin has started to look and feel better. Its been a slow process but its noticiable. Its softer in the morning, my makeup actually looks better throughout the day, and I'm starting to think I might have to get addicted to Estee Lauder products.

  • Mederma Skin Care for Scars Advanced Scar Gel

    I used this on a scar that was left on my arm from a Smallpox shot. It did absolutely nothing but peel off. I didn't get rid of the scar, it didn't even make it less noticable, at all. A complete waste of money.

  • Pond's Cucumber Cleaner

    Pond's Cucumber Cleaner

    A new favorite

    I love this product. I normally use the original cold cream to remove makeup and still leave my skin feeling soft and I now I love this one. I love the cucumber scent- it is not overpowering. Another thing I like about this one is that it's not as heavy as the cold cream. With the cold cream I have to wash it off twice, with this cleanser I only need to do it once and my skin it still feeling soft afterwards. I have oily skin so I rub this in with my makeup still on, wash off with soap and then follow up with the Ponds Classic dry skin cream -- it leaves my skin moisturized so that I'm not overproducing oil and breaking out. Its not irritating and very affordable. I'm just beat myself up when I think about all the money I spent in Sephora on cleansers that dried my skin out and made my breakouts worse. I don't think I'll use anything else.
