I don't like MAC lipsticks! They feel dry and flaky after a few hours.

What I can think of right now ...

1. Clinique Toners 1,2,3,4
2. MAC Select Sheer Loose Powder ... It makes my face look horrible in the afternoon. How? Very dark and very shiny.
3. SK-II essence ... I really wanted to like it but it broke me out badly.

I love Dermalogica but the daily exfoliant also turned my skin into dry patches after 1 to 2 uses!

I put it away for a bit then use it again in hopes it will be better but I need to give it away to stop using it! ll

Most of the time I'm too lazy to return things. I tend to store and retry ad nauseum.

Things that I promptly chucked or returned include:

RareMinerals by Bare Escentuals
Mary Kay products
Strivectin

Cetaphil moisturizer stung my face and the cleanser (which I'm using now) is ok. I dont feel like it's cleaning anything.

Neutrogena's deep clean cream was horrid on my face!! I got all blotchy and nasty from it.

and OCM wrekced my face. I know a lot of you love it, but it made me break out for the first time in over 3 years. I'm still trying to get the effects off my face. I just can't buy into "purging." I don't think skin should ever purge.

Clinique is just too harsh for my skin. The old eye makeup remover (don't know if they've changed the formula in the last few years) was great for getting nail polish out of your clothes, though. We used to use it on our Prescriptives black smocks all the time. Made the Clinique ladies crazy.

I find it so fascinating that sooo many of us list Clinique 3 step...it gets horrible reviews on MUA (approval is about as low as George Bush right now...) yet they still sell it and keep it in their product line.

And you know that we aren't the only ones that feel that way...imagine how many people we represent that have tried it and have experienced how terrible it is. Yes, I do realize that it does work for some people...but still. Anyway, just me thinking out loud...

IMPEACH CLINIQUE 3 STEP SYSTEM!!!

Laughing at Paris's suggestion. The Clinique three steps really should be impeached! It still advertises itself as the best-selling skincare program in the world.

To this I say - Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes !

Ohh and an overrated product is the Pantene Red Hair collection. Tried the shampoo hoping it could help my colour not fade as fast. An absolute dud. Non-sulfate shampoos do a much better the job.

Anybody found a cleanser for your face that you can use without water? There are times when I travelling that I'd just prefer not to use the water. It's one thing if you're in a town long enough for your skin to adjust to it....but if you're only there for 24 hours, your face is saying "Hey momma, what's happening here??" And, besides, I'm lazy. Anything I can do at the end of the day that gets me into bed faster is welcome. I'm 59 with combination skin that tends to break out with overly rich creams.

Dallas, try Zenbiotic's Rinseless Cleanser ( www.zenbiotic.com ). It's cheap, doesn't contain any chemicals or nasties, and it's great at removing makeup--- just spray on, smooth around a bit with your fingers, and then wipe off with cottons squares, tissue, etc. I use it when I come home for the day to take off my make up and let my skin breathe.

I'm with Liz. The rinseless cleanser is great for quick removal of makeup. I use it in the same way - to remove makeup in the afternoon and avoid stripping my skin from too much cleansing.

Try ...

ADERMA SENSIFLUID CLEANSER 200ML
Your skin is especially susceptible. It does not tolerate water... Sensifluid enables washing without rinsing in a single step (you won't even need lotion). Children and adults will appreciate its exceptional mildness.

I use this when I have flare ups or when going away and don't have room for my full kit...

I guess I'm the minority here. I love Clinique's 1st (liquid face soap) and 3rd step (the gel not the lotion). Cool

Anything Estee Lauder - irritated my skin so badly it still itched 2 hours later, then it started to burn.

Lancome skincare products - didn't irritate my skin as bad as EL did, but I ended up with clogged pores and whiteheads.

L'Oreal skincare products - was very awful, didn't do anything except breaking me out.

La Prairie Cellular Purifying Hydrating Fluid SPF 15 and Purifying Hydro Repair - supposed to be mattifying, but made my face even greasier than it already was and irritated my skin as well. It so wasn't worth the money spent.

Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 - I just don't see how so many celebs swear by it. It made my lips even drier, my lips started to crack, and it smells awful.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Body Lotion - didn't absorb and left me with eczema breakout. Plus the smell made me wanna throw up.

The Body Shop Body Butter - I gotta say I loved the smell, but it left my skin itchy for hours and I woke up with eczema breakout.

La Mer The Cleansing Gel - too drying and irritating and too expensive for what it didn't do.

La Mer The Tonic - didn't do anything at all, irritating and too expensive.

I did like Clinique 3-Step as well when I was 14-15 and didn't know anything about skincare. It was just easy to buy a whole set and it's easy to use. My skin was a lot more tolerant when I was younger, so it didn't seem to irritate it, but I was told to stop using it by my dad!

I haven't been impressed with Clinique products either. Some of the eye-shadows/lipstick are OK, but definitely not their cleansers, toners, etc.

Also didn't like:
MAC foundation (made me break out)
Blinc Mascara
