Here are all my reviews:
  • Pumpkin Nutrient-Rich Facial Mask

    I received a sample size of this pumpkin mask as part of the Total Beauty holiday box. It says it "moisturizes and nourishes." It definitely did not do either and was very drying and harsh. As soon as I put a thin layer of this mask on, my face felt like it was on fire, turned bright red, and started to actually go numb (not just tingly). I lost feeling in my lips even though it was not near my mouth. This was within a minute. I washed it off immediately and still had red flaky burns and general redness for days. The package does say "not for sensitive skin" but I do not have sensitive skin and have used other glycolic-acid products and chemical peels with no problem. I would definitely not recommend this product as there are many others that actually have benefits and do not cause chemical burns.

  • Eucerin Daily Protection SPF 30 Moisturizing Face Lotion

    I have very dry yet acne-prone skin and grew up with terrible acne. Now in my 30's I still struggle to balance between moisturizing and treating/preventing acne and luckily this Eucerin moisturizer is one thing that has proven to meet my needs (at least when it comes to moisturizing!) I also have very fair skin, so first of all the SPF is essential - yet non-greasy and lightweight enough to slather all over day and night. Keeps my skin moisturized and soft without feeling clogged/greasy. I do wish I could find something with less chemicals and not tested on animals, but trying other moisturizers has not been successful. The only other complaint is that it's not moisturizing enough for the skin around my eyes or dry patches - I use an additional thick cream for those areas and in the winter. But for year-round basic facial moisturizer, this has been great for the past 7 years I've been using it!

  • Maybelline New York Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner

    I've tired liquid eyeliner pens from most of the "drugstore" brands and Uephora/ulta brands alike, and after years of flaky liners this is definitely my favorite. The point/tip is fine and easy to use - it's easy to get a very fine line or to create a thicker line and goes on very smooth. Most liquid liners flake really easily and this is the first I've tried that lasted literally all day and night without flaking, smudging, or disappearing at the corners. I kept obsessively checking in the mirror the first day I wore it, being used to constant flaking and smudging - and it never budged. Will stick with this for good!

  • Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner

    I bought this eyeliner in Black and was hoping to use it as an everyday liner with staying power. Great price but disappointed in the wearability. Glides on really smooth with a thick line (only if sharpened each time) but smudges all day. Within 20 minutes after applying in the morning the liner smudged all over my eyelids (and my skin is quite dry)and down underneath my eyes in the corners. Looks like a mess after a half an hour. By mid-day it's uneven or gone. As other reviews said, might be better in a lighter color that's not so obvious when smudged.

  • Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Night Cream

    I'm 30 years old with very dry and acne-prone skin, always searching for something hydrating that won't cause breakouts. I have been using this cream as an eye cream and spot-treatment for overly dry patches of skin on my face (chin mostly) and I love it. I've tried lots of creams for use around my thin and very-dry eye area and this is the only one so far that actually hydrates! It doesn't feel harsh and leaves my skin soft and smooth. Great as a primer for eye makeup too. I use this day and night and will continue to do so. The price for quality is excellent, and LOVE that Burt's Bees does not test on animals or use animal ingredients. Highly recommend for anyone with very dry skin!

  • Avon ANEW Genics Treatment Cream

    I researched night creams for months trying to find one that would even my complexion, shrink pores, reduce redness, and hydrate - while not giving me acne. Sounds impossible, and probably is :-) I settled on this Avon night cream based on good reviews and was very disappointed. I used it at night all over my face after washing like normal. Though it didn't cause breakouts, it dried my skin out terribly. My face felt tight and flaked all over for weeks. After putting it on my face felt soft, but long term it didn't make any difference in overall evenness, softness, pore size, etc.
