Skincare - Body -DERMAdoctor - Total Nonscents Ultra-Gentle Antiperspirant

This is a very good deodorant. I used to use Arrid Xtra Dry but it just wasn't doing the job adequately so I decided to give this a try. It is more effective for me than Arrid Xtra Dry or Lady Speed Stick. I also like that it is a roll-on. It does not control my underarm perspiration completely though, so I think I might try Certain Dri next. If you have sensitive skin, this is the product for you. It is completely nonirritating and does not even burn right after shaving the underarm area.
I have a very oily t-zone so I was skeptical that anything could help with this problem, but I decided to give tease zone a try. I was impressed. It does not feel like your skin is covered in a heavy mask upon application, and it worked for several hours before I had to blot. For me, that is amazing. I have tried oil absorbing products before, but they either didn't work or were silicone based and caused my skin to break out. If you have oily skin, give tease zone a try!
I was extremely disappointed with this product. I did not find it superior to other creams or lotions I have used on the KP on my arms. This product contains 10% urea. It is an elegant product as far as urea goes. It does not have an unpleasant odor or make the skin feel dry upon initial application. I just found it to be too heavy and greasy feeling and it did not deliver the results I expected, especially for the price. I am a big fan of several other DERMAdoctor products, but I do not recommend this one. If you are looking for a urea cream to try I recommend Nutraplus. I find it to be more effective and it is much much less expensive. **update**If you are a fan of this product, I would like to make you aware of a product called Atrac-tain. It is a urea/glycolic acid product like KP Duty. It is prescribed quite a bit by podiatrists for dry, cracked feet. DERMAdoctor will not say the exact percentage of glycolic acid in KP Duty, but the urea concentration is 10%. The percentage in Atrac-tain is the same. It costs about $12.50 for a 5oz tube.
This cleanser has really helped my adult acne and redness. I do not have seborrhea, but I decided to try it anyway because I am a big fan of several other DERMAdoctor products and the product description on the website said it was good for people with acne and or rosacea. I have experienced a huge improvement in breakouts and quite an improvement with redness. The cleanser can be used everyday, like I use it, but if you are using it to control seborrhea, you can use it as infrequently as twice a week. It is very mild like Cetaphil and does not dry out my skin, even in winter. A little goes a long way too. A bottle will last you a long time.
I use this product in conjunction with wrinkle revenge eye balm. I love them both. This product, as well as the eye balm, sting upon initial application, but I have gotten used to this. My skin looks plump and even from using this and I have noticed no progression in fine lines since starting the product 2 years ago. It is also a good value. Many face creams cost half again to twice as much.
Treatments (Eye) -DERMAdoctor - Wrinkle Revenge Eye

This is wonderful eye cream. It stings upon initial application, but I have gotten used to this. The skin around my eye area is tight, there are no dark circles, and fine lines are virtually gone. It is also a good value. This eye cream is twice the size of most eye creams but for the same price.
Moisturizers -Dermalogica - Intensive Moisture Balance

I found this product thanks to fellow makeup alley users. It is wonderful. I have combination skin but in the fall and winter it can become rather dry. Intensive Moisture Balance keeps my skin hydrated without causing breakouts. It is a heavy duty moisturizer that does not feel heavy or greasy. It also has no fragrance. I highly recommend it despite the high price. Thank you makeup alley users!
I love this scent! It is a unique, green, watery scent that is so wonderful. It also doesn't turn too sweet on me when it dries down. I first fell in love with it when I smelled a sample card, and I couldn't wait for it to become available.
I guess I just don't get it. I have three tubes of this stuff and there are things I like and dislike about this product. I like that the color is sheer and shiny and I like the taste and fragrance. However, I don't like the texture and stickiness of the product, and the price is outrageous. Would not purchase again.
This cream is great. It is gentle, fragrance free, non-greasy, and very effective. I use it on my hands in the winter and it works just as well if not better than creams that cost three times as much. I am a huge fan of Cetaphil products because of their gentleness, quality, and price.

I love this scent. I always get lots of compliments on it and it is so long lasting. It is a nice clean scent and it isn't overwhelming. It's also hard not to like the price.
Liquid -Lancome - Teint Idole (Original) [DISCONTINUED]

I love this foundation. I have worn it for about 3 years now and I haven't even considered trying something else. It is easy to apply and easy to spread on your face but has a light texture. It is long lasting and comfortable and doesn't change color. It provides full coverage for my acne and rosacea prone skin without looking like a mask, and it comes in a bottle with a pump to minimize messes and spills. I haven't tried the new Ultra version yet. I hope I like it as much.
I bought this perfume because I read that it had juniper in it, which I love. What was I thinking? It smells awful to me. It was so strong and nauseating, and I swear one spray lasted on my hand for a week. I am giving it 2 lippies for this reason, since if you like it, it is definitely long lasting.
I have purchased this many times and I love it. It really defines and lengthens my lashes and it lasts all day even though I tear a lot. I made the mistake of trying the waterproof version recently and I hate it. Unless you plan on swimming all day I recommend this version. It's expensive but worth it.
Conditioner -Neutrogena - Triple Moisture daily deep conditioner

I love this conditioner and I have used more tubes of it than I can count. It is very rich but doesn't leave a residue on my hair and it does a great job of detangling and moisturizing my long, fine, color treated hair. It has a light, pleasant scent and is very inexpensive considering its quality. Most conditioners of this quality cost 2-3 times as much.
