Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Eucerin PLUS Intensive Repair Hand Creme
marnie2 11/11/2007 1:26:00 PM
This is a very good hand cream. It is moisturizing & fragrance-free. I have to agree with everything on the tube except "Appropriate for hand eczema". I can't use it when I have eczema. I also really like using it on my feet. Here in the UK this is called Hand Cream With 5% Urea. Ingredients: water, glycerin, urea, glyceryl stearate, stearyl alcohol, dicaprylyl ether, sodium lactate, dimethicone, PEG-40 stearate, cyclopentasiloxane, cyclohexasiloxane, aluminum starch octenylsuccinate, lactic acid, xanthan gum, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, propylparaben.
My skin really likes this cream. It looks & smells like lemon yogurt! It is a bit greasy but I use it at night. The only reason I might not purchase again is the price. It's not necessary to spend $50 for a nice moisturizer. The packaging is ok if you use the spatula even though I prefer a pump. Ingredients: water, Buxus chinensis oil, Butyrospermum parkii, Carthamus tinctorius oil, glycerin, dimethicone, Vaccinium macrocarpon oil, cetyl esters, stearic acid, phytosterol isostearate, PEG-100 stearate, glyceryl stearate, perflouropolymethylisopropyl ether, cetearyl alcohol, ceteareth-20, polyglyceryl methacrylate, palmitoyl oligopeptide, calcium PCA, retinol, tocopherol, hydroxyethyl acrylate/sodium acryloyldimethyltaurate copolymer, squalane, acrylates copolymer, polysorbate 60, polysorbate 20, Citrus bergamia oil, laureth-4, propylene glycol, butylene glycol, methylparaben, chlorphenesin, potassium hydroxide.

I did not like this cleanser even though it is non-foaming & it did not irritate my skin. The smell is overpowering & it does not rinse clean, it left a film. It's similar to the Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser which I prefer because it has no smell. Ingredients: aqua, cyclopentasiloxane, isononyl isononanoate, pentaerythrityl tetraethylhexanoate, isostearyl palmitate, cetyl ethylhexanoate, glycerin, hexylene glycol, Ginkgo biloba, Chrysanthemum parthenium, acrylates / C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, PEG-6 caprylic / capric glycerides, sorbitan stearate, sucrose cocoate, glyceryl stearate, PEG-100 stearate, sodium carboxymethyl betaglucan, sodium hydroxide, disodium EDTA, methylparaben, propylparaben, phenoxyethanol, fragrance.

I can´t use these cloths every night because I have sensitive skin but they are great for travelling. They leave my skin a bit tight and dry so I do use a moisturizer. They are a bit expensive but cutting them up helps. Ingredients: water, decyl glucoside, sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, cocamidopropyl betaine, hexylene glycol, silicone quaternium-8, sodium chloride, caprylic/capric triglyceride, sodium lauroyl lactylate, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, polyquaternium-7, Aloe barbadensis, Anthemis nobilis, Camellia sinensis, tocopheryl acetate, retinyl palmitate, glycerin, mannitol, Zea mays, parfum, propylene glycol, butylene glycol, methylparaben, propylparaben.
I am not impressed by this product. It did not leave my hair soft or straight instead my hair felt heavy and weighed down. The fragrance isn´t bad but it is too strong. I recommend trying a sample from www. gethairapy.com.
Lotions/ Creams -Ren - Grapeseed Jojoba and Shea Butter Body Cream

This cream is moisturizing and has a wonderful smell but I think it is too expensive to use regularly. It is a nice treat though! Ingredients: water, stearyl heptanoate, cetearyl alcohol, Vitis vinifera seed oil, Simmondsia chinensis oil, caprylic/capric triglyceride, cyclopentasiloxane, cetearyl glucoside, glycerin, Butyrospermum parkii butter, dimethicone, oryzanol, parfum, phenoxyethanol, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate, citric acid, tocopherol, xanthan gum, limonene, citral, geraniol.
I´m so glad I tried a sample of this before buying. It is too rough and scratchy for sensitive skin. I will not buy it or use it again. Ingredients: water, stearic acid, Prunus armeniaca seed powder, butylene glycol, potassium cocoate, lauramide DEA, glyceryl stearate SE, potassium hydroxide, phenoxyethanol, chlorhexidine digluconate, methylparaben, propylparaben, urea, allantoin, Sapindus mukurossi peel extract, dipotassium glycyrrhizate.
Treatments -Avene - Anti-redness rich moisturizing cream 10B-10A

This cream feels too heavy and greasy on my combination skin. The light green tint does not do anything to neutralize the redness of my skin and I don't think SPF 10 is enough protection for daily use. One good thing, this cream smells like candy. Ingredients: Avène thermal spring water, Carthamus tinctorius seed oil, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, PEG-12, propylene glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate, mineral oil, glycerin, glyceryl stearate, cetearyl alcohol, stearic acid, methylene bis-benzotriazolyl tetramethylbutylphenol, squalane, water, BHT, CI 42090 (blue 1), carbomer, ceteareth-33, chlorphenesin, decyl glucoside, dextran sulfate, dimethicone, disodium EDTA, fragrance, hesperidin methyl chalcone, o-phenylphenol, phenoxyethanol, Ruscus aculeatus root extract, triethanolamine, xanthan gum.
This is my favorite fragrance. It is similar to L'eau de Issey (as many reviewers have said) but this one is more sophisticated and not as popular. The only thing I would change is the bottle. It is so boring! All the other Kenzo fragrances have such great looking bottles, specially Flower and Amour. Will definitely repurchase.
Cleansers -Biotherm - Biosource Clarifying Cleansing Gel

I tried a sample of this and it is more than enough to know I will not purchase or try again. It is too drying and irritating for my sensitive skin. Ingredients: water, glycerin, coco-betaine, sodium cocoyl glycinate, PEG-120 methyl glucose dioleate, lauric acid, triethanolamine, phenoxyethanol, fragrance, chlorphenesin, methylparaben, hexyl cinnamal, linalool, limonene, tetrasodium EDTA, citronellol, potassium chloride, zinc gluconate, manganese gluconate, magnesium gluconate, copper gluconate.
This is a thick pink non-foaming cleanser that comes in a pump bottle. It's okay but it has a very strong smell that does not wash off. Ingredients: Avène thermal spring water, PEG-7 glyceryl cocoate, sucrose cocoate, C13-14 isoparaffin, carbomer, Carthamus tinctorius seed oil, DNA, ethylcellulose, iron oxides, laureth-7, mica, phenoxyethanol, polyacrylamide, propylparaben, sodium cocoyl, isethionate, sodium magnesium silicate, sodium methylparaben, tocopheryl acetate, triethanolamine, water, corn starch, zinc oxide.
This is the first Juicy Tube I have tried and I don't think I will be trying any more. I love the raspberry red color and shine but I can't stand the glue-like stickiness. Also, it is very expensive for what you get.
I can't get this mascara to work for me. Maybe I haven't spent enough time learning to use it. All I can say is that I will not buy again because every time I end up with clumpy lashes.
This has no taste or smell, goes on smooth and moisturizes lips very well. It is a simple, clear lip balm with no irritating or drying ingredients. You will not be disappointed unless you want SPF. Ingredients: hydrogenated polyisobutene, polyisobutene, synthetic wax, polyglyceryl-3 diisostearate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, disteardimonium hectorite, tocopheryl acetate, lauroyl lysine, hydrated silica, alcohol, bisabolol.
I can't believe all the good reviews this has. It didn't work for me and I really don't like anything about it. It has a strong fennel smell, it stings and the roller ball applicator is unsanitary and lets too much product drip out over your face. Don't use above your eyes as it will sting! I will not repurchase. Ingredients: SD Alcohol 40-B (from yellow corn), calendula flower oil, borage seed oil, yarrow oil, parsley seed extract, willow bark extract, lemon oil, fennel oil, water, tea tree leaf oil, Juniperus communis fruit oil, Eucalyptus globulus leaf oil.
