Cleansers -Bare Escentuals - RareMinerals Renew & Reveal Facial Cleanser

I received a sample of this through Nordstrom. The sample was for two uses yet I managed to get 4 or 5 out of the small package. I really liked how it cleansed my skin, after rinsing my face felt squeaky clean. The only problem I have with it, is the smell. It smells terrible! It's almost nauseating. Overall though I would purchase!
I love this parfum! I bought the expensive limited edition purse collection that has no spray atomizer. It's sexy, sophisticated, but without the added old-lady-granny smell. I won't be repurchasing because it's waaaaaay over my budget. Literally, had to sell my house for this stuff. haha
Moisturizers -Sothys - Creme Reparatrice / Active Cream (Oily Skin)

I'm ppp, very fair with acne scars, blackheads.. the whole works. I've been using this cream twice a day for about two weeks. I am loving it! It moisturizes my skin well, leaves it so silky smooth, and has lightened it somewhat as well. I recommend for sure!
Bronzers -Fusion Beauty - Micro-Tech Intuitive Active Bronzer

I bought this at Sephora after one the employees applied it to my pale, ghostly complexion. I have the luminizing color, which is actually too dark for my skin. It honestly makes me look like I have dirt covering my face, and it's tone is too orange. You have to apply with a light hand or else you'll end up with too much on your face. The good side of it though, is the fact that it can actually make your face turn darker? Supposedly, from what the Sephora person said. And it makes my skin feel smooth and soft. I also use Guerlain terracota, and Valerie of Beverly Hills bronzers. I might purchase this product again, maybe not. It's a toss up.
Gorgeous sleek glass bottle. Smell isn't to my liking but I can look past that for the beautiful glow it gives. Another fav from my favorite french product!
Gorgeous product, relieves dry.. chapped lips. love it! of course it's from france!
Concealers -Revlon - ColorStay Under Eye Concealer

I'm currently on my second tube of this concealer. It does cover blemishes, scars etc well, but is hard to blend into the skin. And the lightest shade I use doesn't match my porcelain skin tone at all. Too orange/yellow. Hopefully Revlon will come out with new shades in the future.
Lips -Burt's Bees - Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers in Champagne

My complexion is fair, very pale, so I thought champagne color would suite me best. It is a pretty color, and does give an illusion of slightly fuller lips. The only negative thing about it is the glitter. If the glitter pieces could be finer/smaller or less of it then this would be the perfect lip gloss.
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Rosebud Salve

I purchased a can of this along time ago, and I still have over half not used! It's a simple, basic moisturizer.. it works, but nothing special.
I have been using the retroactive day cream with spf for about a month. The product smells pleasant, and glides over skin for a velvet, smooth touch. I will not be repurchasing again because it has made my complexion worse with whiteheads and cystic acne in various places. It doesn't moisturize well either. It's too bad....
Treatments -Avon - ANEW CLINICAL Deep Crease Concentrate
BeKind20thers 8/25/2007 3:18:00 PM
I have been using this on my neck for about three weeks now as a night-time treatment under moisturizer. I wasn't expecting much, since it's an Avon product and the deep lines on my neck are so apparent it's disgusting. But, I can see a difference in plumping, and moisture. It makes my skin sticky and it smells. I see this as a temporary treatment, and not doing much for the long-term.
It's a moisturizer, creamy consistency and can be used under moisturizer or spot treatments. I have used it for about three weeks just on my dark discoloration marks and I don't see a difference at all. It has tiny reflective particules/glitter to make the dark spots less apparent but it hasn't improved my skin and it breaks me out. I wouldn't recommend.
I honestly can not believe I spent $90 on a beauty product, let alone a "toner". It smells clean, very thick not runny, gives an instant tightening effect to my skin. I have been using this for about a month or so now and I really can't tell a difference in my skin at all. I still have visible pores and red, irritated cheeks. La Mer needs to work on the packaging quality on this because it's very unsanitary and causes bacteria to get inside the bottle. I would not purchase this again unfortunately.
Smells great, and love the name.
I bought a sample of this and I really like it. I have sensitive, acne-prone, rosacea skin and once I applied the product, my skin felt instantly calmed and smooth. The only thing I don't like about it, is it's not really made of a bunch of vitamins? It contains chamomile oil, lavender oil, and a few amino acids. I give it 4 lippies because it really calms my skin and makes it feel comfortable instead of red and irritated.
