I love this product. You can buy it in a pump or a tube. The tube is better because the product tends to get stuck in the pump container. This gives good moisture and a close non irritating shave. I like the unscented, the jasmine and the peaches and cream. Update: they seem to have reformulated the product and now the pump is working better. The texture is more smooth. Since this is a natural product I feel safer about using it in the bath tub where it gets all over me. This product is a luxury to me.
This lipbalm is a step up from chapstick, but that is it. It is far too expensive for what it does. Burts bees honey lipbalm is much better at a fraction of the price. If you want much better go for Go Smile smileceuticals lip balm. It really makes a difference. I found with the stange oval shape of this lipbalm that I was just using the center and it got higher on the sides, so I had to make a special effort to get the sides down. The active ingredient in this is a very common one and not that special.
Masks -Bliss Labs - Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask

I got a deluxe sample of this. It feels really interesting that it foams up. It left my skin begging for moisurizer. Like the other rewier I thought it made my skin feel tight and I have oily skin that was really supprising. I liked the relaxing feeling of the foaming. Not sure what it actually does, but it is a relaxing feeling. I think it is too expensive for what it does.
Lotions/ Creams -Bliss Labs - Lemon & Sage Body Butter

I got this as a sample. I used it on my body and the next day when I went into the bath tub I was oily. I would recomend something else instead of this. It is too expensive for what it does. There are better body lotions. Aveeno is better, palmers with shea butter is better, L'occtaine is better.
I got a sample of this and it smelled great, but gave me an instant headache. I am not one for chemical fragrances.
Treatments -Caudalie - Vinoperfect Complexion Correcting Radiance Serum

This product comes in a glass bottle with an eyedropper that is also glass. I have acne and a few spots(hyperpigmentaion) on my face. It does not make my acne worse and is helping with my spots but not completely. I am really sensitive to products so I wanted a more mild product and this is it. I am not sure if I am going to repurchase it again. I will see how much my spots get better after I finish the first bottle.
Treatments (Eye) -Caudalie - Grape-Seed Eye Contour Cream
adobeprincess 2/25/2007 6:35:00 PM
I like this product because it has lessened the circles under my eyes somewhat. I am sensitive to eye creams and since this one said safe for contact lens wearers I thought it might be good. I do not wear contacts, but I am sensitive to eye creams because of cucumber I think. I cannot use the one by clinique. I like that it is in a tube because it seems like a cleaner way to use the product.
Treatments -Skyn Iceland - Oxygen Infusion Night Cream
adobeprincess 2/25/2007 6:27:00 PM
This stuff is really expensive. I am sensitive to smells and fragrances and this stuff does not have a scent in my opinion, but opinions vary as you can see. I purchased it in the 5 day detox kit and that is how I knew I liked it. I would definatly try the 5 day detox kit to see if you like it. I am on my first jar since the detox kit and my skin is feeling so much better. This is a nice way to moisturize the skin without something sticky or oliy. It becomes a part of the skin rather than just sitting on top of it. Buy it at sephora they have a money back guarantee, but I would try the 5 day detox to see if you like the line before buying this jar. UPDATE I got a new jar of this and it has a really smelly. I have asthma and it is making me cough. I contacted the company and asked them if they had added a scent because I was sensitive. They said that the scents they have are tested for sensitive skin. My BF complains about the chemically scent and my dog does not want to sleep close to me when I have this on.
I just started my second large bottle of this after my 5 day daily detox kit. I have sensitive acne prone skin. My skin is really improving. I like the night cream also. This seems to really penetrate the skin and not just sit on top of it. I like the cooling feeling this moisturizer gives me.
I like this eye cream because it is soothing to me. It does not burn my eyes like many eye creams do. I think it is the cucumber in eye creams that bother me. This one is much better than clinique eye cream. I think this cream is taking away some of my bags under my eyes, but I still have 1/2 circles under my eyes.
Skincare - Face -Skyn Iceland - 5 Day Detox Kit for stressed skin
adobeprincess 2/25/2007 6:13:00 PM
They 5 day daily detox kit is a good way to try out things in the line. I have acne prone skin and this works really well. My only complaint is that it is so expensive. My skin is much softer now and also has so much less acne. I still use a benzoyl peroxide cleanser in the shower and use the glacial cleanser in the morning. I never got to using the toner. I really like the antidote moisturizer I am on my 2 large bottle of that now. I am on my 1st large container of the oxygen infusion night cream. What I really like about the moisturizers is that they work without being dirty or oily. I use witch hazel for a toner because I am a big fan of witch hazel. The antidote does have a tingly feeling kind of like mint. It does not burn my skin at all. I actually enjoy the feeling. I got this from Sephora and since sephora has a money back guarantee then you can try it at no risk. It definately lasts longer than 5 days.
The scent is always reminds me of glue. They do not leave a really clean feeling like which hazel which I like. I have oily skin that is prone to acne.
Not the best for my light skintone. It is kind of yellow. It may be better for medium skintones.
Misc Beauty Tools -Sephora - complexion extractor w-lance
adobeprincess 2/25/2007 2:25:00 AM
This exracter got rid of some hard acne that had been stuck under my skin for a long time. A hard whitehead. I normally use it when I have a whitehead that is ready to go. Ulike other people I use the lance and it is not painful. I use it to open up a whitehead that is ready to erupt. I then press the scoop thing on the white head and press on it and it comes out. I was not able to use the device to get out any blackhead, but it was great for white heads I no longer have any on my skin because I can remove them without pushing on my skin. I would not give this to a teen. Use carefully and remember sephora has a retrun guarantee.
Very strong smell that I could not get past. It sayed in my hair for 2 more days the smell that is despite cleaning with clairifying shampoo.
