    Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment

    Works really well for all ages...

    I love this product for many reasons: I have sensitive, blemish-prone skin, and this being as effective as a 10% benzoyl peroxide treatment without the drying effects is remarkable. I use this everyday, applying a thin layer over just my problem areas (usually just forehead) and it keeps my blemishes at bay, also making this a great value when I can usually find it for around $6. I am also at the age where I'm starting to use preventative anti-aging products, and this works well to keep those slight bumps away even when using other products that may have previously caused a problem. I never had bad skin, but I recommended this to someone much younger with persistent acne and she couldn't stop thanking me. I won't stop using this!

  • Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

    Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

    cooling, refreshing, helps chapped lips...

    I admit I become addicted to lip balms. However, ever since I tried this one years and years ago, I can't be without it. It isn't thick, heavy, or waxy like name-brand Chap Stick, and really just feels great on...cooling, soothing, moisturizing. A little pricy but hey, it works so I buy a value pack when I can find it. I keep one stashed everywhere and love that it's all natural.

  • L'Oreal Paris Double Extend Waterproof Mascara

    I have a hard time finding mascaras that will keep my lashes curled and open throughout the day. (They're long but straight.) I start with waterproof formulas first because they seem to work the best, but I have tried every formula in this line (including the "tubes") and love them all! The waterproof formula really does last (I never need to re-apply), even through workouts when I don't have time to wash my face before hitting the gym. And as far as lengthening, it does that too. I don't really look for mascaras that claim that since I already have long lashes, but this makes them amazing. I recommend this to everyone I know. Even if this was as expensive as department store brands, I'd gladly pay it because it actually works and does what it says.

  • Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel

    Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel

    Great scent, great results, great value...

    This "peel" is just wonderful. I have very sensitive skin and have to be very careful what I use, from cleansers all the way to exfoliators and acids. philosophy has not let me down here. The crystals might seem to be a bit abrasive at first, and they do warm up once you put the 2nd step over it, but I have never had any lasting irritation. I use it on a clean face, in the shower (the slight steam helps it be more gentle for me). I always come out refreshed and glowing, and this container lasts a long time for me. I used an identical (but more expensive) product because I got it from the spa for which I worked. I'm really glad I found an affordable alternative. For anyone wondering about fragrance, there is a citrus (vitamin C) scent but it's not overpowering at all.

  • Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Antioxidant Pads and SPF 55 Miraculous Anti-Aging Fluid

    I am a long-time fan of philosophy (but not of the parabens they use in some products) and have been a faithful user of many of the products. I have very good skin, slight imperfections as I get older, and thought this would be a great investment to help with the discoloration on my cheeks. If all the other things happen that they claim (brighter, clearer, etc...) then it would just be icing on the cake. Well, none of it has happened. I take that back: my skin is smoother immediately after I apply it, I will say that. And the scent is very light and fresh when you do get a faint whiff. I have been using this for about 4 weeks now, and I'll finish this first container, but I can't see myself purchasing this again. I used an alternative product at less than half the price (and the other line contains no parabens AT ALL) and will go back to that.
