5 Products I thought I wouldn't like but I love! (Mini Review)

Hey, Dolls!

Here are five products that I bought thinking that they would disappoint...but I've used them and found uses for them; and will definitely buy again. This is a mini review, so I will make this quick and to the point.

1. Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash  

I've tried several cleansers for acne and none of them really did what they claim. I tried this because it was oil free but I really didn't think it would do the job. It's a really good cleanser; and after using it, my breakouts are very rare. I broke out several times a week (regularly) before using this cleanser and since using it my breakouts are months apart; and when they come they don't stay around at all...they are gone in a day or two.

I have been following her and the other artists on Instagram and You Tube and was very excited that they announced this makeup cruise together, earlier in the year!

It's a five day cruise and classes are available to take on the cruise, at a reduced rate. I will be attending two classes by Lauren Nicely. I normally take at least a couple makeup classes a year; and since I did not attend The Makeup Show this year, I am eagerly awaiting this cruise (not to mention that I need a vacation)!

My plan is to write a few posts on the classes that I'm going to take and the activities that were available for the makeup attendees when I get back. There …

Black Opal: True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation Review

As of late, I've have been loving this foundation. I have gotten a tan, and this prompted me to buy a new foundation matching my new shade. The color that I bought is Truly Topaz and probably in the Fall/Winter I will be back to my Heavenly Honey shade. I've used Black Opal foundations before, and I figured I would give this new one a try. Read on for my thoughts.


"Keep them guessing with picture poreless skin. This lightweight, oil-free liquid foundation seamlessly blends to provide flawless coverage with a high definition finish. Exclusive poreless technology helps minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, controls excess oil and renews skin natural radiance. Oil, fragrance and paraben-free formula. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive."


-Inexpensive, it's $10.95 online and retails anywhere between $12-$13 in stores.
-Light to medium coverage, this is a pro for those who have relatively clear skin.
-The coverage is buildable.
