Skincare - Face -MD Forte - Replenish Hydrating Cream

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this face cream! You can't really call it a cream, it's a unique texture, I can't really explain. It is ridiculusly priced for what you get, but so is La Mer. Why this face cream dosen't get as much or equal attention as La Mer is beyond me. This moisterizer has great water-binding agents and antioxidants. It will make your face smooth and soft. I used it for a very long time, and it never made me to oily or overly dry like alot of face creams do. It has no fragrance, and no pore clogging ingredients, so those with sensitive skin who have problems with acne should check this out. By no means is this a miricle moisterizer, it wont do anything terribly drastic like shrink your pores or even out your skin tone, but it will norish your skin and make it feel fabulous!
Treatments -Lancome - Primordiale Cell Defense Serum [DISCONTINUED]

I had high hopes for this product. It's a serum thats supposed to "perfect" skin. The sales lady promised that it would make my pores smaller and it would help even out my skin tone. I used it for a month and saw no difference! It was doing nothing for my skin. I payed 70$ for something extra to put on my skin that did nothing! And of course you cant take it back because you tried it already! I dislike Lancome's products and I will never buy from them again! I think they are nothing but scam artists!
I began using these three items at the age of 12. I loved them. But as I got older my skin changed. So I would go to the Clinique counter and get my skin redone on that little test thing. It seemed when I would use clinique I would have to buy more and more products for other problems I was having. Like, the 3 step didn't help at all with my clogged pores, so the sales lady suggested a daily scrub, a weekley scrub, a mask, their pore minimizer and Total Turnaround cream. My bathroom counter began looking like the Clinique counter. When none of this seemed to help with my clogged pores I told the lady and she recommended a make-up remover!!! Because the sunscreen might be causing my clogged pores! That was the last time I went to a Clinique counter foe a few years. I went back when I couldn't find another skin regimen, and now they have a new serum that I LOVE!!!! It has completely wiped away my clogged pores! I LUV IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Skincare - Face -Clinique - Acne Solutions Line (all products)

This summer heat wave has really gotten to me and my skin. My skin has been breaking out and being stupid. I've always liked Clinique's products. So passing by the counter one day I saw the add for the new system and bought the trial size. After using it the first time, my skin was much clearer the next morning. I've always had clogged pores on my nose, after a few days they were gone! It was a miricle!!!! I wish this stuff was around when I was in highschool. The cleanser is foamy and it really makes me feel clean, but dosen't dry me out. The toner burns but, it works though. It really clears me out. The mosterizer does make my skin soft, not immediatly, but the next morning my face is so soft! I love this system, I'm on my second starter kit. Thank god I foud this before I went to Proactive!
Lip Treatments -BeneFit Cosmetics - Smoooch [DISCONTINUED]

I don't know why there are so many haters. Smoooch is great, Is it expensive? YES! It is outrageously priced but I think its worth it. Its no different than buying a jar of Lancome face cream when you know that the same thing is sitting on the drugstore shelf for half the price. Smoooch is my favorite lip balm. The only one I liked just like this one was BeautiControl's but they discontinued it. So I splurge on this every once in a while, it really does instantly provide moisture to your lips. Plus, my girlfriend loves that I use it! She says that it makes my lips "delicious". I would never disappoint her by stop using it! LOL! The only problem is I can't stop her from stealing it!
I must ask, WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL???? I do not understand why people love this stuff. I have occasional breakout, clogged pores and sensittive skin. One thing I do like about this product is that it moisterizes my skin without needing a lotion or cream. This product dosen't really do anything for me.. My face does not feel clean after I use it, in fact I don't feel like I'm washing my face. If you like suds when you wash, this isn't the cleanser for you. If you have really sensitive skin, this is the cleanser for you.
Well, I have been tempted to buy this product since it first came out. The money part didn't bother me that much it was the fragrance in it. I was horrified that the fragrance would irritate my skin. Finally, I went to the Lancome counter and bought a jar, along with the cleanser Clairifiance. The lady was very sweet to me(By the way, if you live in the Nashville area and want to buy a Lancome product, go to the Dillards counter at Cool Springs, they are much nicer there than at Macy's!). She put a little on my face, and I'll admit, it kind of burned a little, but after that, my skin was as soft as a baby's bottom! Since then the moisturizer hasn't burned me at all. The texture of it is kinda like a gel/cream. The fragrance is to die for! It smells so clean. When you put it on your skin it soaks in like water. I love it! It's perfect for me. I do have sensitive/normal/combo skin and this moisturizer has really made my skin soft. The adds don't lie, it does hydrate all day, and a little goes a long way. Many people say that Lancome and Loreal are the exact same products. Well I have used both product lines and I must say that Loreal is nothing compared to Lancome. I haven't found any moisterizer like this in the drugstore or any other counter. Hydra Complete by Estee Lauder is the closest to this product and I hated it! I really like it, so try it. If your counter dosen't have any samples of it then go to Sephora and have them make you a little sample.

I recieved a sample of this, and I tried it. I FREAKIN LOVED IT!!!! It was so good! It smelled so delicious and the texture of it was fabulous! I used every bit of the sample. I then went to buy it, when I found out how much it cost, my jaw droped to the floor! I couldn't believe how expensive it was! So I went around to different places and tolf the sales people that me and my mother wanted to try it. That kept me going for a while. But eventually I realzed I had to give it up. Yeah, the product was good, but way " thats what us people of limited means say about it, because we can't afford it! My mother loved it though, but I'm not about to use someone else's facecream, yuck! I really must say that I like Clinique's moisterizers better. I also liked M.D, Forte Replinish cream. My dermatologist says that the La Mer cream has no water binding agents or anti-oxidants, which is a great disapointment to him and other skincare pros around the world. He told me that you could easily go to a drugstore and find a much better moisterizer than La Mer.

I had alot of promise for this line of skincare products. I have been looking for a moisterizer with an spf that will moisterize my skin without making it too oily and braking me out(I know I'm looking for miricles!). I passed thru B&BW and picked this moisterizer up along with the acne fighting overnight cream. Both products were horrible! The spf moisterizer made my face shiny, and it keft it feeling really wierd. The packaging was really cool though! I'm such a dork! The cap, you can twist in one way and close it and twist it the other way and open it! It's pretty cool:~)
