    Almay Smart Shade Makeup

    Review subject

    This is really the only makeup which provides natural-looking coverage and doesn't make me break out. I love the fact that it has SPF in it, and the shades are great for light-to-medium complexions. My only complaint is that it doesn't last throughout the day. Overall though, it's my main foundation of choice :)

  • Avalon Organics Vitamin C Refreshing Cleansing Gel

    I just purchased this cleansing gel yesterday on a whim and the smell alone is enough to make me want to buy it again. I have oily, acne-prone skin, but I wanted a cleanser that had good-for-me ingredients in it. A glance on the back shows you that lavender and chamomile extracts are two of the main ingredients in this yummy-smelling gel, both of which are very soothing. I washed my face with it last night and woke up with brighter skin and less noticeable acne. Time will tell how this wash treats my skin after a few weeks, but things are looking promising now! Even if you don't have acne, I'd recommend this cleanser because the ingredients are just so promising and refreshing!

  • Got2b Powder'ful Volumizing Styling Powder

    It does work, but you have to shake the product directly into your hair for the best effect. A little goes a long way and you can really customize exactly where you want the volume to be; just shake a bit of the unscented powder onto your hair and then massage it into the roots. I only gave it 8 stars because it does leave your hair feeling a bit sticky, but it's not a huge deal if you don't use a lot of the product at once. I found that my hair could easily be volumized with this product throughout the day with just a quick scrunch from my hands; plus, it doubles as a dry shampoo on lazy days! I say give it a try. I'll be purchasing again :)

  • Sally Hansen Extra Strength Creme Hair Bleach For Arms, Legs & Face

    This stuff works, but you have to use it correctly. I use it on my facial hair because other methods just make me break out. I recommend a patch test if you have sensitive skin, though, and you can experiment with using more of the creme to dilute the sting of the bleach. Wash your face with a gentle wash (Purpose is my favorite) and cold water, then use the pre-conditioning treatment it comes with. I don't know what it does, but it helps bleach all of your hair! I apply opposite the direction of hair growth to get every nook and cranny. It will sting a bit (especially if you're on skin medications), but after 8 - 10 minutes I like to hop in the shower and gently wash my face again to get rid of any bleach remnants. I top it all off with 100% aloe vera gel to help fight the redness and I'm good to go until the bleached hair naturally falls out and my normal hair color grows in its place (which takes a couple of weeks).

  • Noxzema Original Deep Cleansing Cream

    I have bad, bad acne-prone skin. The only thing that seemed to help was 10% benzoyl peroxide, which made the acne go away slightly - but not really. Then I stumbled across this product on this website, read some good reviews, and decided to give it a a go! One of the reviewers said that Wal-Mart carries their Equate version of this cream that is closer to the original formula, so I tried that (it's only a dollar less and you still get the same amount. The Equate version just has fewer oils). Within a few days, my skin instantly looked healthier, moisturized, and I haven't gotten a bit of horrible acne since! I use it morning and night and use the benzoyl peroxide every other day to keep any lingering acne in check. But this is amazing - it's so cleansing and leaves my face feeling so clean and fresh! I use make-up remover before I use this just to make sure my face is completely clean. It does leave a film on your skin, but that's just the oils in the cream itself - and eucalyptus oil is a great antimicrobial agent. In short, I love this stuff and can't wait to see how my skin looks in a few months. Thanks, Noxzema!

  • Oxy Acne Wash, Minimum Strength

    I've had trouble with acne for years and this is the only product that makes any difference. I've tried Proactiv, Acnefree, and tons of other kits, but none are as effective as Oxy. I use the 10% formula most of the time and the 5% when I have dry winter skin, but year-around it works incredibly well. It's light, has pretty cool packaging, and a little goes a long way - the smell isn't anything special, but it's affordable and it works. I only use Oxy! Followed up with a good SPF moisturizer, I'm good to go :)
