You just have to sign up! When you get a certain number of points you can choose from several different sample size products, and all I've been offered have been really nice (Dior moisturizer, Calvin Klein lipgloss, Philosophy hand cream, for example).

Anyone can get the product samples that they make up for you.

I was in the same boat with the oily/dry/blackhead prone skin. I use Cetaphil and a washcloth for daily exfoliation. I would tend to cut back on moisturizer when I felt too oily, but that just made my skin produce more oil. So now I use a daily moisturizer with a built-in spf for day and a heavier cream for night and my skin has never looked better or been more balanced.

I've had a lot of luck with the Garnier Nutrisse line - inexpensive but it works for me. I cannot use anything by Oil of Olay - instant breakout.

Thanks. Cetaphil is on the shopping list and I'm heading over to Garnier Nutrisse website.

Haven't read the replies but just bought a smashbox kit which included smashbox o-gloss and o-glo. Love them! They are clear and turn color when you apply. One is for lips the other cheeks. There are a bunch of other things (makeup) that comes in it including a DVD on how to apply. Didn't watch that yet.
I will now go back and read this great thread!

That cracks me up! I read about that the other day and went out and bought a bottle and have been using it for around a week! It does seem to help some, I just wondered if there was a better foundation out there that soaked up oil, too. I used to use Avon's line softening mousse foundation which feels very light and silky, but I seem to be between shades except in the summer.

For a great conditioner I love TIGI S factor serious conditioner. I started using there Health factor daily dose shampoo (sulfate free). It smells wonderful.

I'm glad that helps a bit. I also use Clinique's Oil-Free Matte Sheer Pressed Powder, which seems to work well and I use it all summer. I also have found that wearing a liquid foundation can reduce oily-ness, with a powder on top. Not sure why but it does.

You should try Gucci II - it's similar to the ones above. DH bought me a bottle last Christmas and I love it - I don't wear the same scent all the time, but this is one of my "go-to's".

I am SO glad I tried mineral makeup.

(*Said in my best Scarlett O'Hara voice*) - "As God as my witness - I'll never wear gloopy liquid foundation again!" I'm an EM addict. It's a bonus to me that they are cheaper than BM, because I would so pay more for EM. BM makes my face itch.

I haven't tried that brand, but I have tried pretty much every other flat iron known to man, and I couldn't be happier with my MaxiGlide. They can take my MaxiGlide when they pry it from my cold dead hands, lol.


I have a question about eye makeup remover - does anyone have a recommendation for one that:

1) removes mascara quickly and thoroughly,
2) is not oily, and
3) won't equal the cost of my car note?

If I can't have all three things on my wish list, I'll take #s 1 and 2. Three is not mandatory, but would be nice.

Thanks, I'll try that! I got Voluminous at Target instead but it's clumping on me this morning, and I don't like picking at my eyelashes at 6 AM

Don't feel bad, I always wear mascara and liner to pools, waterparks, rainy days....otherwise I look pale and my eyes blend in to the rest of my face.

I use Neutrogena oil-free makeup remover, it works pretty well for me. I know the MAC kind is really good, but I won't spend that much money on remover either (I think the Neutrogena was only a few dollars at Wal-Mart).

Thanks! I have only tried their mascara, and I am looking for a good night serum too. It seems like I've tried everything, but nothing works! Boots seems to be a lot like pricier brands, I like their quality, and I'm hoping the lack of my waterproof mascara was a temporary oversight on behalf of my local store!

Wow, keeping up with this thread is going to be tough, but fun

OH--perfume--I'm more a one- or two-scent person, but right now I'm alternating between Lovely, and Japanese Cherry Blossom from Bath & Body Works. I like Chanel Allure too but I haven't had any in a long time.

I use Cerave cleanser and moisturizer( you can but it at CVS or drugstore.com) It is gentle like Cetaphil but does not leave my face greasy or oily( kind of dewy/matte).
