Treatments (Eye) -Remede -Remede Wrinkle Therapy Moisture Baume

I was a long-time user of the Remede High Energy Eye Contour Cream and was devastated when it was discontinued. (See my review on that product down below for a point of reference.) I was able to keep supplied for awhile from Ebay sellers, but that resource finally disappeared too and I've spent several years desperately searching for a comparable replacement with no success. For some reason, I chose not to try their replacement products (Wrinkle Therapy Moisture Baume & Hydra Therapy Eye Creme) because I didn't believe they would be as good as the discontinued product. Out of desperation, I finally gave in and purchased samples of both of these products from Ebay and have been slapping myself for waiting so long to try them !!! They are both absolutely fantastic and work almost exactly as well as the discontinued version, but in their own ways. They Hydra Therapy Creme is EXTREMELY light and moisturizing and sinks right into the skin very quickly, leaving no residue. The skin around my eyes is left looking soft, moist, definitely younger, and the under-eye bags and dark circles and tiny crinkle lines are greatly diminished almost immediately. This creme doesn't have the volume of "light reflectors" as does the previous version, but that's ok because it depends on the "look" or result that you're going for. I've been extremely pleased with this creme and will definitely continue using.

The Wrinkle Therapy Moisture Baume is much thicker and more like the discontinued version, absorbs very quickly into the skin, immediately reduces dark circles and under-eye bags (just like the previous version) and also has the light reflecting particles that gently reflect light away from the skin around your eyes. I was immediately pleased and amazed at the immediate affects and slapped myself AGAIN for not trying these products sooner!

I still do not know why Remede discontinued an absolutely fantastic product (High Energy Eye Contour Cream) or maybe they just re-formulated and re-named it as the new "Wrinkle Baume," but these two replacements are DEFINITELY worth the money and run very closely comparable to the previous version. I think BOTH products are excellent and well worth a try because they both work slightly differently from each other, but with very similar dramatic and wonderful results. It appears that I have finally returned back to the Rememde fold of loyal eye product users! Buy the samples and try them! I am certain that you will not be disappointed!! I am so happy to finally have SUCCESSFUL eye products after wandering around the product world for several years desperately searching for a replacement that compared to my beloved product that was discontinued.

Here is my review (below) for the "High Energy Contour Cream" from back in 2007 for a point of reference to compare to these new products:

Absolutely the most unbelieveable eye cream I have EVER used........and I've probably tried them ALL~!!!! You only need a little, which is good, because it is SOOOOOO whopping expensive!!! ($90 in most places) I cannot describe how fantastic this stuff works for my eyes. They are lifted, smoothed, and softened. The dark circles are wiped-out and the tiny fine lines are nearly invisible. There are tiny tiny tiny, hardly visible particles to reflect light, which work WONDERS over and under my eyes, making them look SO smooth and light and rested and just totally AWESOME~!!!! I am SO upset that I discovered this stuff because now I don't want to be without it and don't want to spend $90 for such a tiny little eye cream. *SIGH* I almost wish I had NEVER received this sample. *LOL* This stuff is BEYOND AWESOME~!!! You won't regret spending the money for it.

I have been using this for over 10 years and I love it. My skin is very sensitive and a lot of products cause breakouts and/or acne on me. But this doesn't and I love that it exfoliates but isn't harsh on my skin (even though I use it every day). I use Retin-A, which can leave my skin pretty flaky, so the sweep works really well to get all of that skin off. It's spendy but worth it, IMO.

Sweep is yet another product I used to see in the Bliss Spa catalogs that I got years ago. Like Nuxe Dry Oil, I've wanted Sweep just because I saw it constantly and people rave about it. Being the cheapskate product junkie that I am, I didn't buy a huge bottle at the full price - I went on eBay and got a medium sized bottle for $20 so I could try it out first.

I generally avoid scrubs because my skin is insane and most make me break out. I obviously need to exfoliate because my skin gets dull and there's something deeply satisfying about scrubbing the dickens out of your face every once in a while but I tend to avoid it because I'd rather have dull skin than deal with the breakouts scrubs inevitably cause. I held off on using Sweep for a bit but I finally decided to take the plunge a few weeks ago. Since I use the Erno Laszlo system, I tried to incorporate it into my routine but I didn't exactly get the full effect. I used the scrub again a few days ago by itself and that made all the difference. My skin was super soft and smooth. I also noticed that the whiteheads on my chin were less noticeable but the blackheads on my nose (which can only be removed for a short period of time with Biore strips) weren't affected at all.

As I've said before, my skin is rather tough so it's difficult for me to rate the harshness of scrubs. Sweep isn't terribly scratchy like St. Ives Apricot Scrub or Clinque's 7 Day Scrub (is that still around?) but I think it gets the job done just as well. It seems gentle enough to for someone with sensitive skin to use because the granules are pretty fine. It also washed away fairly easily.

In my opinion, I can't really see why this is a cult product. It's a decent exfoliater, there's no smell and it seemingly doesn't clog pores but I think this is comparable to a baking soda or oatmeal scrub that you can make at home for a fraction of the price. I'm glad I got it because I have been lemming after it for years but I highly doubt I'll repurchase it unless I find it for a drastically reduced price again (I believe the original price is something like $50 a tube). It's a good product but at this point in my life, I'd rather use a MUAC peel that really gives me visible results but this is a product if you need a quick, deep clean on the fly.

Have been dying for this product to return and it finally has. It is a miracle product. Use whenever you need to fix your skin overnight.

I held off from trying this cult favorite facial scrub for well over 10 years, even though the product junkie inside me really, really wanted to check it out. It just seemed like a ton of hype, and the reviews have always been so mixed. Finding myself at a Bliss spa a few months ago and completely out of any facial exfoliator whatsoever for several weeks, I decided to shell out $50 (!!!) for a tube of Sweep and figured I'd finally give it a go. I've now used the entire tube, and guess what? It's 100% hype. No better than putting baking soda in a milky cleanser. In fact, I think baking soda does a better job of exfoliating. Do not waste your money.

So I got it at bliss I was told it's better quality scrub than the pore perfecting polish that I use. It is also more $. Yes it is much gentler and did not make my skin overly dry or turn red but I am not impressed. I have combination skin and blackheads are an issue it did nothing to clear them up.

What can I say? This is a Classic. Yes, the formula has changed, and yes, it still delivers flawless, major resurfacing without abrasion. I have used this for many years, and it does major work, for such a simple formulation. I flip-flop with this and the Cosemedicine exfoliant--that is the only thing that comes close to this do it yourself scrub. The product looks like a clay paste. It does smooth everything out! Make sure to moisturize after using this, as it is serious exfoliation. It's not that cheap, but it lasts for maybe 6 months.

I have used this cream for over 5 years. I stopped using it, because it clogged my pores, and it made me greasy after a few hours of initial application. It DOES impart an amazing glow and texture, and it is an anti-aging cream. To say that it doesn't correct skin is a lie. I have taken pictures when I was using Alchemy, and my skin was always flawless. After 5 years of using it the effects wore off, and I was over the constant pore clogs, so I stopped using it. I do miss the beautiful, luxurious floral scent, and it does keep your skin and its odors very fresh. Would I go back to it? Yes, even with the pore clogging, it is worth the high price tag. I would just use it as a day time treatment.


Highlighters -Remede -Soft Focusing Lotion

I like this stuff, as I don't wear foundation most days, and this evens out the complexion without making me look fake. It is a bit oily, but my main problem with it is the cost. Can anyone recommend a cheaper alternative?

Thanks!

This was a pleasant, forgotten surprise in the back of my vanity drawer. My "mature" skin is pretty much wrinkle free (mostly DNA because I don't obsess over it the way I should at my age) and sensitive/dry in winter. It's hard to give it what it needs other than diet and keeping it clean because it's so sensitive and unpredictable. I had no choice this evening - I need to replace my humidifier and my hair and skin were feeling crunchy.

So after cleansing this evening I tried out the Remede. I was surprised at how light and emollient it is. It's a bit sticky, but as long as it gives my dermis that much needed poisture before bedtime, I'm good! My skin felt so much better after I applied the Skinceuticals Retinol, which is not moistiruzing. It has only been one night, but this made enough of an impression on me to post someting tonight. If there are any significant changes (+ or -) I will be sure to update my review. For now it's two thumbs up.


Skincare - Face -Remede -Translucent UV Coat

This is the best beauty purchase I have made all year. My skin is fair and healthy, though pretty dry and sensitive during these winter months, so it has been a bit red. Unlike tinted moisturizers that can sometimes spread unevenly or get stuck in the minute fuzz of your face, making it look cakey, this fluid glides right on the skin and is quickly absorbed providing a flawless and luminous coverage to my face. Coverage may not be the best word, because this won't hide major blemishes, but it does even out skin tone and blend in with your skin so perfectly that no one would ever guess you had on makeup. I can't rave about this product enough. I already have fairly nice skin, so I wouldn't recommend this to someone with problem skin, but even though my skin is dry in some parts and red in others, this fluid makes my skin look and feel smooth and even. Love it. For reference, I have used both Clinique's Almost Makeup, Moisturizing Tint and Laura Mercier's Luminizing Tinted Moisturizer. They don't come close to being as gorgeous as this lightweight fluid. Oh and it doesn't irriate my highly sensitive skin either. I could go on, but you should just buy it already.

This is another product by Remede that I've used for years. The smell is weird but the moisturizer works wonders. Because of the price, I've gone off it for periods of time but everytime I go back, I can see and feel a difference in my skin. For me, it makes my skin very soft, it brightens and it does seen to help with age spots. I live in a very dry climate and a little of this product goes a long way.

I've been using this product for years and I love it. It is super sheer but it feels silky on the skin and it evens out skin tone. It also has sunscreen which is nice I've tried other similar products but always return to this one. It isn't cheap but a little goes a long way.

I used this sample sachet over 2 applications. It is a good mineral / clay exfoliator that is gentle enough. It contains small fine particles which don't feel too harsh and leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean, and bright. I'm not sure how much this costs but I'm sure it's pretty expensive. I may purchase this in the future, depending on the price!
