I'm usually hesitant to try new moisturizers for fear of how they will react to my oily skin, but I was excited about this product because I've found AHAs help to keep my oil under control. It hydrates my skin without breaking it out like many other moisturizers have. I've been using it every other night for about three weeks and love how lightweight it is. Since my skin is somewhat sensitive and I use another product with AHAs it would be too much for my skin to use on a nightly basis.
I received this complimentary via Influenster to try out. I have oily skin and I like that this really gets rid of the oil and keeps it under control while still being gentle and not drying out my skin. It exfoliates without being harsh and I can use it on a daily basis even with my sensitive skin.
I received the City Mini Palette in the Graffiti Pop version complimentary of Influenster. The formula is great, especially for the price. Great color payoff, very easy to blend and not too much fallout. Very beginner friendly. The size is also perfect for travel, which is always a plus for me. The only two colors that appealed to me in the Graffiti Pop palette were the blue and the champagne shade, purple is just a color I don't like to wear. I plan on picking up another palette in colors that I prefer wearing because I do think the quality and price are both great.
The wand really gets the base of the lashes and some of the parts that are usually harder to reach like the lashes on the inner corners much better than a regular want. The formula is not the best I've ever tried. It doesn't give my lashes as much volume as I would like. It's good, just not amazing.
I have occasional cystic acne and this is the best product I've used for it. When I feel a breakout starting I apply this immediately to the spot and it almost always gets rid of it. If the cyst is already fully formed I apply this before bed for a few days and it greatly reduces it and often makes it go away entirely. As the product dries you can literally feel it working. The only downsides are that it is incredibly drying and has a strong sulfur smell, but the pros greatly outway the cons. This is an absolute must have for me and I always make sure to have a bottle nearby.
This is by far the best cleanser I have tried for my oily and sensitive skin. It strips the oil from your skin without causing dryness. My skin is prone to acne and seboric dermatitis and this has done wonders to improve both. I don't get as oily throughout the day and my skin feels soft and clean. You do have to be diligent about using it twice a day to get results.
I recieved two of the Armani Lip Magnets complimentary of Influenster and they have by far the best applicator out of any liquid lipstick I've worn. It glides on smoothly and makes it easy to get a very precise application. It's also very lightweight and creamy, not at all drying like a lot of other matte lipsticks. The only downside I could find is that this is definitely not a kiss-proof lipstick, it comes off a little on drinking glasses and doesn't last the promised eight hours on me. However, I don't find that to be much of a problem because of how quick and easy it is to reapply.
I was very excited to try this because it's hard to find a matte foundation that comes in shades with pink undertones. While applying it I was happy with how well it matched my skintone, but when it dried my skin looked cakey, dull and very dry. It settled into every little crease it could find whenever I moved my face. My skin looked like it belonged to someone fifteen years older.
I bought a pack of these and their sapphire under eye masks (which I think is the same except they're blue instead of clear) and I love how refreshing they are. I'm not sure if I've noticing much of a difference, and with their cooling effect they might work better for reducing puffy eyes.
