I was totally underwhelmed by everything I bought. Never again!

Thank you, ladies. I guess it looked too good to be true. I currently use Mally's eyeliners and love them. The only other eyeliners I've used that do a good job and stay put are cheap Revlon liners.

Demeris, in fairness I didn’t try the mascara.

lreidgreen, I don’t know why I bought the brightening stick either! I don’t even use concealer. I put it up to the lure of FB ads they can be like a siren seducing the sailor.

Anna - I so wanted the Vanicream Lite lotion to work for my face (bargain!!!) but it was too heavy for me, too. You may have good luck with Neutrogena Oil free sensitive - although for some reason it burned my eyes - it was otherwise good for me. I also liked the Differin Moisturizer although that one is a bit oily.

You may also like this DML Lotion - I heard about it on Dr. Dray's channel and she describes it is being more watery than the vanicream lite.

I'm still doing well with the cold cream cleanser and the witch hazel toner. My skin is certainly no worse for it - and in fact, may be a little clearer. I'm thinking b/c it is actually taking off my make-up, sunscreen and dirt/oil better than the other cleansers I was using.

Right?

Not quite such a bargain once I factor in the giant zit that formed.

Live and learn.

Thanks for the extra suggestions.

I almost got pulled in with that one. I put it off and the ad never popped back up. So I'm good!!

I bought the skin recovery toner for my 15 year old daughter (Differin gel has cleared up her face, but made it really dry and red) and this worked great for her. I borrowed it a couple times and loved it so I bought my own. I love the way it feels!

I ordered the skin recovery toner the other day. I consulted with the PC team and told them what I had been using and inquired which product was the most similar and that's what they recommended. It should be in this week.

I've been using Deciem The Ordinary's anti-aging regimen and it has changed my skin texture and seems to be aging backwards. My routine is AM - after cleansing: Buffet (or Matrixyl & Argiriline), Marine Hyaluronics, followed by Natural Moisturizing Factors. PM- after cleansing: Buffet, Retinoid 2% in Squalane followed by Hemi Squalane or Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil and Natural Moisturizing Factors. When I start to breakout I use their Niacinimide and it clears everything up within 1 day. I am impressed with their products, prices, and ingredients.
My skin is sensitive, and for me it's the fragrance. Natural products don't work either because most contain essential oils, which are also fragrance. The Ordinary is fragrance free, from what I can tell, and my skin has no reactions to it. I'd like to try the Niacinimide.
