    bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation

    Better than the original

    The matte formula is great for oily skin but apply carefully if you have combination skin because it can also be drying so make sure to moisturize! I find that the coverage with this foundation is also better than the original and the color is much more accurate to what is listed. It's a little more yellow; I used golden medium. Ou don't have to use much but it also depends on what brush you use. I used to use the kabuki brush when I used the original but found that the flawless face brush gave me adequate coverage with the matte version. The price is typical for BE products but that's expected for the natural ingredients and a good price to pay for an item that's is good for your skin.

  • Boots No7 Intelligent Balance Mousse Foundation

    I only purchase mineral makeup due to my sensitive skin but came across this brand one day in Target when I was frustrated from having to put multiple layers of mineral makeup on for coverage. This foundation goes on smoothly and provides good coverage, not the best but just enough to even out skin tone, not necessarily cover acne marks, but that's what concealer is for. Make sure your skin is very moisturized because it can be drying, I usually stick with this foundation in the summer. The color varieties are very slim but it's easy to blend if you put on thin layers at a time. I use a sponge to put it on because fingers can get messy and make it hard to blend once it dries. This foundation is great for people with yellow undertones which can be very hard to find. The price is reasonable and it's not difficult to find if you have a Target nearby.

  • Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser for Face and Eyes

    This cleanser is great. It melts off all your makeup, you'll see what I mean once you try it, but it's awesome for sensitive skin at the same time. I use this with my Clarisonic brush and have been for over 3 years now. My skin drastically improved in the beginning and it never lost it's effectiveness. It is pricey but not bad compared to some of the other stuff on the market, plus you only use about a quarter sized amount so it lasts a long time. I love that it's not drying which is so important for acne prone skin to stay moisturized. You can usually get samples if you ask at Sephora and they carry small travel size bottles if you're not sure but once you're hooked the large bottles are the most cost effective!

  • L'Oreal Paris HydraFresh Toner

    L'Oreal Paris HydraFresh Toner

    Great for Sensitive Skin

    I have tried many astringents, toners, and face routines to try and get that "glow" and even out my skin tone. I have combination skin and it's very sensitive to certain products, some even made for sensitive skin. I was reluctant to try the HydraFresh toner because of it's low alcohol content since I felt that without it my skin wouldn't clean, but WOW what a difference in a short amount of time. I use it twice a day after I cleanse with my Clarisonic with Purity cleanser and before I moisturize with Olay Sensitive Skin lotion (in the morning) or Night of Olay (at night). My skin is so much smoother, even and it didn't break me out at all! In fact, I think it kept the acne at bay. My face is less oily and makes my foundation go on smoother when I do wear it. I have acne marks that have lightened (both old and new) and I'm only through half a bottle. The price is great so even if you're not sure about it, it won't cost much to try it out. It doesn't burn, unless you get it near your eyes but duh... The most important thing I've learned for adult acne is how unbelievably important it is to keep your skin moisturized and this toner helps with that without the alcohol to dry it out. It's also beneficial if you work out because you can use this to refresh your face if you don't want to wash it and extra time during the day, for me that dries out my face which in turn causes it to produce more oil and break-out! What a cycle! Sorry this review is so long winded but I wanted to let you guys know about everything that I love about this toner!
