  • Almay Oil Free Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads

    I think this is a decent product. It was inexpensive ($5) and you get 80 pads. They truly are oil free. I was not left with any film over my lids or even in my eyes after I was done using them. Bonus- I wasn't left with burning or irritation after using them. The pads do a fairly good job of getting most of my eye make up off but the trick is to hold it onto your eye for a minute or so to really loosen up the make up. My only complaint is that it didn't completely take off all of my mascara. That being said I don't know how well these would work on water proof eye make up.

  • Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil

    I was skeptical about putting oil on my oily skin but it didn't make me break out at all or add any extra oil which was nice. It seemed like it took a few minutes for it to completely soak into my skin which I didn't like. Argan oil is supposed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help heal acne scars amongst other things but I didn't notice any difference in my skin at all. It was a little expensive (forty eight dollars for one point seven ounces ~this website wouldn't let me type the numbers for some reason) and it only lasted me about a month. This product is ok but I'm sure that there are other products out there that can do a better job and for less money. I wouldn't buy this one again.

  • Gold Bond Ultimate Softening Skin Therapy Lotion

    This is by far one of the best drug store lotions I have ever used. I have really sensitive skin and this didn't irritate me like some of the heavily fragranced lotions do. This lotion is very thick and creamy. It penetrates your skin very quickly and leaves you feeling very soft and moisturized (great for the winter months especially) without being greasy. The scent is very light and not overpowering at all. Overall, this is a great lotion

  • Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar

    I have really sensitive skin (and eczema too) and eveything I used felt like it was drying out my skin and making the problem worse. My dermatologist recommended this soap to me. It is so gentle and makes my skin feel clean and soft. I feel like it gets all of my make up off without leaving any residue behind and doesn't irritate my eczema either. It wasn't expensive ($3 for a bar) and it really does live up to it's name.

  • Aveda Damage Remedy Restructuring Conditioner

    This conditioner is amazing! I had damaged my hair from coloring it and using heat styling tools too often. This conditioner is full of quinoa protein that helps to heal damaged hair. I like that it is very thick and creamy, kind of like lotion. I leave it on for about five minutes everyday and rinse. My hair doesn't feel like dry straw anymore. It's hair is stronger, softer, and much easier to manage. I recommend trying this to anyone who has damaged their hair. It is kind of expensive ($24 for about 7oz) so I took off a star for that and I took off another star because it doesn't smell very good, but it does what it says it will.

  • E.L.F. Eye Makeup Remover Pads

    Ladies, save your dollar. This is the worst beauty product I've ever tried. I honestly don't know how it got some higher reviews. First of all, the pads are too small. They barely removed any of my eye make up, even after I held it on my eye to "loosen" the mascara and eyeshadow. I had to rub and rub to get my eye make up off and I don't even use waterproof eye make up. These left my eyes red (maybe that was my rubbing) and burning. They also left a filmy residue on my eyes. Yes, they only cost a dollar and you do get eighteen of them. But plain old soap and water would have done a better job. I'll stick to the good stuff like Clinique's Take the Day Off or Mary Kay's remover. They do a way better job even if it costs more.

  • bareMinerals Skin Rev-er Upper

    I got this for free in the Bare Minerals starter kit. I admit I didn't use it for a couple of months because I wasn't really sure what to do with it and because I have sensitive skin so I'm always hesitant to try something new. You don't need that much ( I used a pump and a half) to cover your whole face. I don't care for the smell of it at all and I didn't really like the feeling (a little bit sticky) when I smoothed it on. It did help my make up to stay put all day, even in the hot and humid weather. But I still notice that my skin looks oily, maybe just not as much as it did before. After using it for a couple of weeks I'm noticing that my skin is starting to break out in areas that I normally don't break out in (chin and mouth area). I'm just really unsure about this one. I don't think I would go out and buy this one but I can't complain to much since it was free and kept the make up in place. I tried this out again and after my face broke out (like I'm a teenager that hit puberty not a thirty year old woman) again, I ended up tossing it right in the garbage. I know that everyone's skin reacts differently to products but this one was just not good.

  • Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa Look Ma, New Hands Softening Hand Lotion with Paraffin

    If you get dry hands, this lotion is a must try. It goes on pretty thick although it does leave your skin feeling a little bit greasy but you have to let it soak in for a few minutes. After it's soaked it, your hands should feel nice and soft. The smell reminds me of fresh oranges or something similar. It is a little bit on the expensive side ($12 for two and a half ounces) but they usually have a buy two get one free sale.

  • Hempz Herbal Moisturizer

    Hempz Herbal Moisturizer

    favorite lotion

    THis lotion is amazing. I purchased the white lotion but I saw it in pink too. It is nice and creamy when you put it on. I doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy or oily buit it does take a little bit to completely soak into my skin. It leaves your skin feeling very soft and moisturized all day long, even after numerous hand washings. It's a little on the expensive side but a little goes a long way, so if you don't use that much the bottle will last longer. I think that the smell is amazing, it's kind of fruity and floral at the same time. The smell is a little strong at first but it does wear down a little after a few minutes. All in all, this one is great.

  • Mary Kay Mineral Powder Foundation

    I've been using the mineral powder for the past few months and I actually prefer it to BareMinerals. There are about twelve different shades to pick from so it's fairly easy to find a color that will work for you. The powder is lightweight, offers good coverage, and doesn't feel heavy or chalky at all. My skin is oily so I didn't notice any problems with drying like I read a few other posters had. The pricing isn't bad either. IIt costs about $18 which is less than what I've paid for BareMinerals and other similar mineral powder foundations. Overall, this is a really good foundation.
