  • Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Jumbo Lash Mascara

    I never really wore mascara because most them felt drying and made my eyelashes fall out. I love this mascara. It makes my lashes look very dark and thick. It doesn't clump or flake. I like that it leaves my eyelashes feeling soft and natural (not stiff and brittle.)At the end of the day, it comes off easily with soap and water. The large brush takes a bit of getting used to but I like the way it coats my eyelashes evenly. Because of the fat brush, it is a little harder to reach the corner lashes but, with practice, it can be done. I don't go out of my way to buy organic or "green" products but it is reassuring to know that what I am using on my eyes is natural and gentle. I only gave it 8 stars because it doesn't lengthen my lashes like I hoped and it gave me raccoon eyes when I went to the gym (it's not waterproof.)

  • bareMinerals Pretty Amazing Lipcolor

    I love this line of lipcolor! I normally wear only lipgloss because I find most lipstick brands to be too drying. This is more of a hybrid between a gloss and and a lipstick. It is highly pigmented but goes on smooth and and has a nice shine. The applicator wand just glides and the color hugs your lips and stays moist for a long time. I usually only have to reapply once during the day. It lasts through my meals and drinks. I love it so much I bought 4 different colors. There is also no gross lipstick taste or smell...definitely a plus! I will always keep a tube of this BareMinerals/BareEscentuals lipcolor in my purse!

  • CoverGirl LineExact Liquid Liner

    CoverGirl LineExact Liquid Liner

    Not worth the price

    This eyeliner looks line a small Sharpie marker. I thought the size and thin, felt applicator would give me a precise, sharp line. I was wrong. This product was not effective at all. The felt tip applicator dries out incredibly fast, which makes application spotty and uneven. Also, the barrel leaks all over your fingers and makes a mess (which is probably why the product dries out so quickly.) This is just not a good design or a quality product for the price. ***NOTE: I contacted CoverGirl and their customer service made things right***

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Length Mascara
    5.0

    CoverGirl LashBlast Length Mascara

    Not the worst but not great

    This is not the worst but it is not great either. What I do like: I like the flexible brush and the product goes on your lashes pretty evenly. The brush is thin enough that it is easy to apply to the small, corner lashes. It does make my eyelashes look longer. What I don't like: There seems to be a lot of little fibers in the mascara (probably to lengthen lashes.) Also, it does not thicken lashes very well but leaves my lashes looking clumpy and tangled. As the day goes on, the fibers flake and get all over my face. It also does not wash off too easily. It will do in a pinch but it would not be my first choice.

  • CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Serum Primer

    I absolutely love this product! I had been looking for a good primer and had purchased a few different brands, none of which I was satisfied with. I got to try this product for free and I really liked the idea of combining the primer and serum together. I use this product every morning after moisturizing. I wait for my moisturizer to absorb, then apply this serum/primer on my face and wait for it to absorb before I apply my makeup. The texture is rich and creamy. It glides on smoothly and absorbs fairly quickly. It leaves my skin feeling silky and makes makeup application much smoother. A little goes a long way so a bottle will last you a long time.

  • Ambi Fade Cream
    1.0

    Ambi Fade Cream

    Does not deliver results

    I had high hopes for this product after reading the reviews. I used this cream twice daily after cleansing (but before moisturizing) for over 3 months. The texture is thick and creamy, like an ointment, and it absorbs a little slowly. There has been no change in my sun spots or dark under-eye circles (I am hispanic and asian so my skin tone is not dark.) At least this product was inexpensive since it didn't work in my case.

  • Olay Complete Daily Defense All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 30 - Sensitive Skin

    This is one of my favorite Olay products. I use it in the morning after rinsing my face (I only use a cleanser at night to prevent stripping my face) and after my serum. The texture is light and creamy and it absorbs quickly. It does not feel greasy at all. This is the only reason I was able to get my fiance to try it when his skin was flaky and dry from working outside. It fixed his problem after 2 days. The other thing I really like about this lotion is the 30 SPF. This helps prevent sun spots and wrinkles. I don't like being out in the sun, but I feel more comfortable in my daily activities knowing that my skin is better protected than with most other lotions. I didn't give it a perfect rating only because during the winter my skin could use a slightly richer moisturizer. However, during our 100+ degree summer weather, this is the best product for me.

  • Olay Total Effects Daily Moisturizer
    9.0

    Olay Total Effects Daily Moisturizer

    Wonderful daily moisturizer

    I absolutely love this moisturizer! I was using Olay Complete SPF 30 but received this Total Effects 7-in-1 moisturizer as a sample and now I'm hooked! I use this moisturizer in the morning after rinsing my face in the shower (I only use a cleanser at night to prevent stripping my face)and after my serum. The texture is rich and creamy and absorbs quickly. It leaves my face well moisturized and actually glowing. I can't say how it works on existing lines and wrinkles (since, at 41 I still don't have any) but I feel it may help prevent them. The only reason I didn't give it a perfect rating is because I think it should have a higher than 15 SPF.

  • Olay Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex

    Olay Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex

    Not bad but not great either

    I am a big fan of Olay products. However, this is one I'm not too excited about. I use this twice a day after cleansing and serum but before moisturizing. The texture is rich and creamy and a little goes a long way so one bottle will last a long time. It absorbs well and does not feel greasy. I did not really notice much difference in the way the skin around my eyes looks. I have dark circles and puffiness under my eyes due to allergies and I did not notice any difference even after 2 months. At 41, I have no lines or wrinkles so maybe it helps prevent them but I don't know how it handles existing wrinkles. Not a bad product but not great, either.

  • Olay Pro-X Hydra Firming Cream
    10.0

    Olay Pro-X Hydra Firming Cream

    My night cream of choice

    This is my favorite night cream! I received this cream as a sample and have been purchasing it ever since (about 2 years.) I use this cream at night after cleansing and serum application. The texture is rich and creamy but not heavy or greasy. It absorbs well and the next morning my skin feels soft, dewy and well-hydrated. I am 41 and this cream does make my skin feel firm and supple. I don't have any lines or wrinkles so I can't say how this cream affects those. I'd like to think my continued use of Olay products (along with no sunbathing, smoking or drinking) is a factor in the way my skin looks and feels.
