    Aveeno Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream

    absolute MUST HAVE for eczema sufferers!

    I have had eczema for years and no prescription ointment or lotion comes close to the effectiveness of this amazing cream! I was so upset when it was discontinued.. until I did some research and realized that it now goes by the name Aveeno Advanced Care Moisturizing Cream... while it used to be found in the first-aid isle near Neosporin and Band-Aids it is now in the regular lotion isle with the majority of Aveeno's products.

  • Neutrogena Complete Acne Therapy System
    4.0

    Neutrogena Complete Acne Therapy System

    decent cleanser, disappointing lotions

    over the past 10 years I have tried EVERYTHING to treat my moderate acne and this system is, in my opinion, one of the worst... I had hoped it would be a more convenient, less expensive version of Proactiv but I was very disappointed... the cleanser was nice... it is a .5% salicylic acid "polishing" scrub and I actually considered repurchasing the entire kit just for the cleanser... the "acne control lotion" is a 2. 5% benzoyl peroxide lotion (same percentage as Proactiv) but it was super sticky and I didn't feel it ever "sank in" properly... the SPF15 lotion that comes with it was okay.. it didn't cause further breakouts but it didn't moisturize very well either.. I had to use Cetaphil moisturizer on top of it... Perhaps my least favorite part of the system is that it is lacking a toner. I only had the patience to stick with this system for about 3 weeks, but I saw no improvement in my acne and my dry skin was EXTRA flaky :( I have to add, though, that I have a friend with oily skin and mild acne and she swears by this system...

  • Rimmel London Lasting Finish Soft Colour Mono Blush

    I have bought this blush time and time again!! I get the color "Santa Rose" which is just perfect for my super pale skin... I do prefer the old packaging to the new which comes with a tiny, useless brush.. but for the price it CANNOT be beat! goes on and stays on just as well as much costlier brands. oh, and did I mention it looks natural in artificial AND natural lighting? love it!!

  • Smith's Rosebud Salve

    Smith's Rosebud Salve

    best of the best!

    smells good, feels good, looks good.. it is the ultimate portable lip balm/gloss all in one! I always, always carry it with me and my friends always ask to use it... there is a reason you always see this in magazines as the balm models and celebrities carry with them.. because it truly is the best. the ONLY potential downside is that it involves finger application.. but it's totally worth it. :)

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

    I have used the entire tea tree oil line and I wasn't thrilled with most of the products.. but this is a definite keeper! sometimes I feel like I'm putting so many chemicals on my face, it's great to have a natural option. I use it as a spot treatment on pimples, bug bites, rashes.. anything, really... worth every penny to have on hand!

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Blemish Fade Night Lotion

    this lotion goes on so smoothly and did a great job of keeping my skin (dry/moderate acne) moisturized! I really like the way the tea tree oil line smells too... on the other hand I used it for 2 months.. along with the rest of the tea tree oil line.. and it did NOT clear my acne. actually, in the long run and compared to more medicated lotions, it made my acne worse. I would say it's a great option for people with mild acne and combination or dry skin, but for my acne it simply didn't cut it.

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash

    The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash

    NOT for moderate to severe acne!

    I was fed up with using so many 'medicated' topical acne products so one day I walked into The Body Shop and purchased the entire tea tree oil line. I used the wash and toner twice each day, the tea tree oil lotion in the mornings and the blemish fade night lotion in the evening as well as the mask about once a week. The line did a good job of keeping my skin (dry/moderate acne) moisturized.. I had virtually no flaking!!.. but it did NOT clear up any of my acne. I stuck with the line for 2 full months before giving up and I honestly feel my skin was worse overall than when I started. I would only recommend to someone with very mild acne who wants a natural option.
