    Aveeno Ultra Calming Foaming Cleanser

    Causes problems it promises to soothe

    This product gave me very itchy, bumpy atopic dermatitis. I am very unhappy as this product specifically says it "helps visibly reduce redness and calm dry, irritated or sensitive skin while gently cleansing". It also says it is hypoallergenic. When my face broke out, I did some research on the ingredients and discovered that feverfew used in the product as a calming ingredient is actually known to commonly cause allergic skin reactions as it is in the chrysantemum and ragweed family. Many people with sensitive skin are also allergy sufferers. Huge disappointment!

    Neutrogena MoistureShine LipSheers

    great low maintenance lip product

    Love the price, love the colors (spring blossom and sun berry), love the spf 20, love the moisturization. I am not sure about the cool, tingly thing, though.

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara

    Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara

    Outstanding mascara that is REALLY Zero-Smudge

    This is a lash saver for those of us who usually have to use waterproof mascara due to chronically teary eyes. It thickens and lengthens nicely, clumps a little bit, but has a nice brush that easily fixes that. Best of all, it is great for sensitive eyes and completely stays put all day. This is the first mascara I have ever tried that does not smudge AT ALL by the end of the day, even on watery eyes. It removes very easily with warm water so it is easy on the lashes but probably not the best for hot tubbing. It is a bit pricey, but the results are outstanding if you are looking for smudge/tear-proof.

  • Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula

    The cleanser is rich, thick, and creamy and works fine, but it is too abrasive for me, especially on my face.

  • E.L.F. Brightening Eye Color

    I bought nouveau neutral, which I like a lot-it a is very nice subtle, natural looking color combo and easy to apply. I also bought butternut which is a lot bolder. The shadow has a slight sheen, is a bit sheer, easy to blend, looked nice, and lasted for me. It did fade a little bit. There a small amount of product and the packaging is bad--the powder shadow breaks up pretty easily. But for a dollar it is worth it to buy a few of these, especially for colors you do not use very often. Not my first choice in eye shadow, but does have a place in my makeup bag. This is the only drugstore brand I like.

  • Clinique Perfectly Real Compact Makeup

    This is great! It evens skin tone and perfects, it very natural looking, makes my face look and feel soft and smooth and it applies quickly and easily. It combines the foundation and powder step. It is very easy to blend and comes in a lot of good colors. It does not irritate. The packaging is outstanding and durable. I like that the sponge has a storage compartment under the powder rather than on top of the powder. I have used the compact down to almost nothing without the powder breaking and crumbling all over. Decent price. I love it!

  • Jane Staying Powder Loose Powder

    Very, very inexpensive, but nice looking, silky, quality loose powder. I really like it and regularly use it. The only things I do not like are the powder puff (I use a brush) and the container itself. The lid is loose and does not screw on, so it can be messy.

  • MAC Plushglass

    Awesome color selection. I have a light-medium warm complexion with pink overtones. I have Posh it Up and really love the color and shimmer. I think it is an outstanding color for anyone. It lasts a long time. It is kind of sticky and irritates my lips a bit. It also has a strong coconut smell.

  • Clinique Repairwear Day SPF 15 Intensive Lotion
    9.0

    Clinique Repairwear Day SPF 15 Intensive Lotion

    Great for sensitive combination skin

    This is a great moisturizer for people with very sensitive combination (not dry) skin. It feels rich, absorbs quickly, and the dispenser is well designed. It protects your skin with effective sunscreen boosted by a healthy dose of antioxidants. It is also fragrance-free, does not irritate skin, and moisturizes well without causing acne. It is pretty reasonable priced especially if you can get a Clinique Bonus. I really like it!

  • Clinique Repairwear Intensive Lip Treatment

    This is a great lip balm. It moisturizes very well, is fragrance-free and contains some good ingredients that are not irritating. It does not contain sunscreen which is okay, depending on your preferance. It is packaged like an elegant lipstick. But let's face it "anti-aging" products are just moisturizers that contain some antioxidants. It is really way expensive for a lip balm when you can get one that works equally well for a quarter of the price of this or less.
