This is my favorite mask. I can't live without it. I barely get to use it b/c it's so expensive but definitely the best treatment mask I've ever used! Packaging is individually wrapped and there is one mask per use. I leave it on for 30 minutes (longer than suggested). And sometimes I can leave the left over serum and use it the next day. This mask really leaves your skin glowing and renewed. Very noticeably soft. Sometimes you can buy it cheaper, almost half off, on duty-free international flights. I love it and will continue to buy it despite the high price!
This gives my face a dewy look. After I apply it, I let it sink in for about 10 minutes then wipe off. The product is a clear gel (one of the ingredients is, interestingly, sorbitol (a cleaning agent)! Another active ingredient is isononyl isononanoate, an emollient that helps maintain the soft, smooth and supple appearance of the skin. It smells nice, very clean and fresh smelling. Almost minty. So far, I like it, but don't love it enough - yet- to give it 5 stars. I'll update after a week or two of use.
Cutest cosmetic bag I own! I ordered the large size from adorebeauty because sephora only carries the small ones. Perfect compartmentalization, all my makeup fits perfectly in it's own little spot. Even has a compartment for makeup brushes. I love how it doesn't get dirty. love it love it
I use neptune and love it. It's a little heavy (but covers flawlessly!) so i usually only use this on days I want full coverage. it covers so well, sometimes i just use it as a concealer. I would definitely recommend getting a sample of this from sephora or somewhere before buying.
This is the best stain I've used so far, makes you look naturally flushed. Perfect application, you can't go wrong with this one. I actually like it alot better than nars orgasm because i feel that powder blush is harder to apply to get that "natural" look. TIP: works best when you apply moisturizer, then foundation, then couple dots of stain, then top off with Benefit High Beam.

I feel like it's not getting my face completely clean. I ususally use this then follow up with another cleanser. The smell is great; smells really nice and herbally! i like the consistency. it's really creamy-like. but i don't like how it doesn't foam up. personally I prefer foaming cleaners because they feel cleaner, but this one's for you if you like the non-foaming types.
Cleansers -Sisley - Gentle Eye and Lip Make Up Remover.
lucky888lucky 11/4/2003 5:07:00 AM
DOES NOTHING! too gentle. unfortunately i always end up using a LOT of the product to do its job. Chanel's and Lancome's biphase remover works much much better. i wish i didn't buy the full-size bottle.....
instant refreshment and hydration! i love this treatment. i use it 1x per week whenever i need a pick me up. directions say to tissue off excess after 10-15 minutes, but this stuff absorbs so well, i usually dont have anything left. but i wonder sometimes if i'm supposed to put moisturizer over it? i feel like it might be too greasy.
Treatments (Eye) -Sisley - Sisleya Eye and Lip Contour Cream

I really liked this in the beginning and noticed a slight tingling effect. But eventually it stopped working and made my eyes puffy and was irratating.
Overall really good moisturizer, absorbs really fast. only thing is that for my combination skin, it makes me break out sometimes on my t-zone. i'm currently alternating between this and La Mer's Moisturizing but I like La Mer's better because it's lighter.
Gels/Soaps -Bath and Body Works - Antibacterial Hand Soap

okay for summertime, but this soap really dries your hand out! i've noticed my cuticles getting thicker and drier b/c of the soap. i recommend using the moistutizing one instead.
Cleansers -Christian Dior - Softening Cleansing Milk

I feel like my face was still dirty. I usually use it before washing with a foam cleanser.

I love this mask!!!! Yes, it does tingle quite a bit but thats because it's working. It definitely does its job of firming your skin

I don't feel like it did ANYTHING. Glad I didn't buy and that it was just a sample. Thalgo's is MUCH better.
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

I LOVE THIS LAURA MERCIER'S TINTED MOISTURIZER! I use it everyday and i'm on my 3rd bottle. it makes my skin look absolutely flawless. it also gives that "dewy" look. NUDE is *perfect* for light skined asian girls. this stuff evens out my skintone w/o that heavy make up look. my girlfriend is an on air anchor and she uses this stuff instead of foundation. I noticed that it looks best when you "pat" it on instead of smearing it on. only (-), i wish the spf was higher.
