    Olay Oil Minimizing Toner

    Great, when I can find it!

    I used to use this regularly, but over a year ago I started having trouble finding it at any of my local stores. It deep cleaned my skin and helped prevent breakouts. It has a nice scent and never left my skin with that dry, tight feeling or feeling irritated like some toners. I've been using a different toner recently, but if I can find this again, I'll switch back!

  • Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System

    I used to covet the Clairsonic Mia, but couldn't bring myself to spend the money. Then I heard about this Olay item that is very similar so I started researching. Reviews are all positive so I started watching for it. It's so popular it was sold out at my local Target the first couple times I tried to get it. Finally it was in stock and I fell in love after the first use. It exfoliates very nicely, but gently and leaves my skin so very soft. It works great with any cleanser--I rotate, depending on the day and what my skin needs, between the sample scrub that came with it, my usual St. Ives scrub and my Fresh Soy face cleanser. My boyfriend has even used it with his Neutrogena for men face wash and he loves it, too. He probably uses it once a week and I use it 3 or 4 times a week and so far the battery seems to be lasting really well. It has two speeds, but I'm partial to the faster one. I definitely recommend this item, for what it costs compared to the Clairsonic version, it is most definitely worth it.

  • Olay Daily Facials Clarity Lathering Cloths

    I've used these before and they do a nice job taking off making up and cleansing skin. I like products like this for travel, especially when I'm visiting at my parents' house. Just add water, wash, and throw away. The scent is nice and they always leave my skin feeling soft and smooth. Not as helpful as I would like for preventing breakouts, but I suppose I have other products for that.

  • St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub

    I only have a travel size of this scrub, but I've always liked it. I like how it's not as gritty as some other scrubs, so it isn't quite as harsh on the skin. It also seems to work well for helping prevent breakouts, which is always a problem for me when traveling. It has a pleasant scent, leaves my face feeling clean but not dry or tight (or irritated), and I don't need very much to clean my face, so that one travel size tube is lasting a long time, even though I did a fair bit of traveling since I bought it. I would buy it again, if I can find it (I don't think I've seen it anywhere since I purchased it).

  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

    These are my favorite lip balms. I especially love the tinted versions, with Sugar Plum being my absolute favorite. Passion is nice, too--like the Rose but with deeper color. The scent and texture is wonderful, though I find I have to be careful to not apply too much or the color looks a little off and the texture can get weird. But it's good to only apply as much as you need because these are pricey and can run out quickly with frequent use.

  • Laura Mercier Lip Colour - Creme

    I only have a sample size of the color that used to be called Pink Champagne. Thank goodness this color still exists, though under a different name, because it is a perfect "nude" shade for my coloring. It feels very nice on--creamy and hydrating--and it lasts really well, too. It also doesn't have any off-putting scents or odors to it. Definitely a high quality lipstick that I will be purchasing again.

  • E.L.F. Studio Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

    I LOVE the texture of this tinted moisturizer and I love that it has SPF. I wore it several times and under my bathroom lighting I thought it blended perfectly and looked natural with my skin tone. Unfortunately, the 3rd or 4th time I wore it, I caught my reflection in a mirror in natural sunlight and my face and neck were two distinctly different colors. It's really an excellent product, but just because it's light coverage doesn't mean you shouldn't test out the shade in multiple kinds of light (seriously, I know better--I don't know what I was thinking) to make sure it matches! (And I still have not found a tinted moisturizer I like that doesn't look bad on my fair skin.)

  • Benefit Dr. Feelgood

    This is the first makeup primer I ever bought, so at first I loved it because I didn't know any better. Eventually I noticed that it didn't really do anything except make skin feel softer immediately after it's applied (the feeling doesn't last!). It didn't make my skin any less shiny by the end of the day. It didn't help my makeup last longer. It has a strange, almost medicinal smell. And the instructions are bogus (apply on top of makeup? that just wipes the makeup off!). I got rid of it and started trying new primers until I found one that ACTUALLY worked. Sad, because I do love most Benefit products I've tried.

  • Benefit Benetint Lip Balm SPF 15

    I love this lip balm! It's great alone for just a hint of color. I also like to dab it on over a matte red lipstick to tone down the color just a bit and give it some shine. It doesn't stay on all that long, but most balms I've used don't. It also has a nice scent and you don't need much to get that hint of color, so the one jar lasts a long time.
