I have to say yes this is an expensive product however, it works!! And any reviewer under 35, please dont waste your money, just use sunscreen during the day so you wont need this product. Anyway, I noticed my skin started changing after i turned 35 :( and i just started some serious skincare as my face was looking like ash. I started doing some peels and scrubs from neostrata and bought this to compliment my new routine. My skin is brighter with more clarity. I have used retin A which is a great product too but this serum is great and just a drop at night under moisturizer works for me.
Lotions/ Creams -Nivea - Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme

I absolutely love the scent of this cream, any nivea cream in fact smells divine. I keep a tube of the nivea soft in my purse when i feel my hands need pampering. I have used this on my face, it does feel nice and soft, but i recently purchased nivea Q10 as i am getting older and need more firming qualities in my skincare. I will update on what i think of the Q10 in a few weeks.

I purchased this product as a replacement for vaseline but i cant figure out how to use it, has anyone used this with good results? Let me know.....:}
I broke down last night and had to try this as a facial moisturizer after giving myself an at home microdermation from neostrata. ( check out that review) My skin is a little sensitive after giving myself a facial and moisturizers burn and make my face red. So i slathered a thin layer after and my skin is behaving so nicely today. I wont use this everyday but once in a while i will treat myself.
Treatments -Neostrata - Skin Resurfacing Duo (Canada)

I like this product, i really do! However, i tried it tonight for the first time. but i didnt realize before purchasing it that the main ingredient in the crystals is baking soda, and the acivator is lactic acid. so basically i could have just rubbed some baking soda on my skin and follow with some yogurt. My skin felf smooth yes however i know that baking soda can produce very soft skin when used properly so i feel i overpaid and will not repurchase.
Eyeliner -Clinique - Quickliner for eyes- smoky brown
asunta 7/21/2010 10:29:00 PM
Ok i have to say this is my first eyeliner from clinique, or from any other high end cosmetics. i was in need of a new eyeliner and i wanted something great. I was sick of black and sick of the ugly browns on the drugstore shelves so i took the advice of all you ladies and purchased this liner. Well all i can say is, the staying power is amazing, i showered and it was still there, the consistency is creamy enough, no pulling or tugging. The color is very different, its nice but im but i wont say wow. Its not intense like black or boring like brown. But i like it. When i run out i will try a different color.
Well i was just raving as a shampoo so i had to try this as a face wash and i have to say yes! my skin feel clean, refreshed, not tight and im loving it so far. I was using spectro jel and i did love it at first but noticed my pores were getting clogged. Will update.
I have fine wavy hair, its always weighed down by other shampoos. I just started using this a few weeks ago, and i dont think i will ever look back. Since i started using this shampoo my hair feels thicker, behaves better, is softer, has more body and its helping me to grow it out again after a bad haircut episode. I usually follow after with a tiny bit or conditioner closer to the ends of my hair so i can keep the body at the crown. (for some reason the top of my head seems more fine than the rest) After i had my third child i lost alot of hair and this is the first time im seeing a difference in the texture of my hair. I would recommend this shampoo for anyone with fine frizzy hair. I find i cant straighten my hair to the point of being flat after using this but the waves look beautiful and im giving my hair a rest. I really really love this shampoo.Will definately keep using it and i will try it for other uses like skin and see how it goes!
Scrubs -Queen Helene - Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub
asunta 7/19/2010 10:34:00 PM
I live in Canada, it was hard to find this product, but i finally found it and tried it tonight. First of all this is a good exfoliator, its not comparable to st.ives because mint julep has very fine granules. It felt like i was using baking soda on my skin mixed with a creamy base. it was tingly but not painful, very refreshing actually. However when i rinsed it off my skin was very soft and comfortable.. I like it but i wouldnt say in love. I will try the other scrubs in this line. If i find i dont like this i will use it on my body.
First of all, this is not a makeup remover, it is a cleanser, a purifier for your skin. it does not strip your skin, it keeps your skin behaving the way it should when its balanced and clean. I use the ocm method at night and then use spectro gel to take away all the oil and then a little witch hazel followed by my beloved estee lauder night repair and moisturizer. Sounds like a long process but well worth it. Skin stays balanced and not tight. Definately great for winter when skin needs more moisture, will repurchase.
I like this cream, it gives a great matte finish but not great under makeup.
I dont use this often, maybe once every 2 weeks. To exfoliate i use neostrata peel instead and in the summer my skin will still get a little congested i will use this as a last resort. Even days after using this i can see positive results. However i will never use this more than once or twice a month. My skin glows for a whole week after one use!
This review is for my daughter who adores this mascara. She loves the applicator and the precise way it applies. She says it doesnt make your eyelashes clumpy and helps them to spread out beautifully, and she is proof, it looks great on her! And it elongates your lashes and make your eyes pop! Would repurchase, for her of course :)
I origianally purchased this for my daughter who wanted something simple and fast, the color ws good but flat and made her break out. So instead of exchanging or returning I took it and used it and I broke out, yuck! I love the fact that its so quick to apply but really there is no dimension to this makeup and can really clog your pores. This is good for normal skin. Would not repurchase
