Moisturizers -Cerave - Facial Moisturizing Lotion - PM
loveoutdoors 9/28/2011 10:28:00 AM
After using the moisturising lotion and loving it I decided to give this a go. I really like it, adds moisture without heavy feeling. No issues with my finicky skin (bonus). Cerave is an awesome line, another HG. Update: I've developed a sensitivity to this lotion, it seems to make the redness of my rosacea flare;(
Eyes -Unlisted Brand - GenTeal-Mild Dry Eye Relief Lubricant Eye Drops
loveoutdoors 7/27/2011 9:07:00 PM
Purchased on recommendation of eye doctor for relief with eye problems. Particularly at the end of the day when my eyes are downright sore these drops really give relief. They are preservative free so the doc said I shouldn't be afraid to use them whenever necessary. These and the OcuSoft lid scrubs have helped immensely.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - OCuSOFT Lid Scrub Eyelid Cleanser
loveoutdoors 7/27/2011 8:39:00 PM
Purchased this on recommendation of eye doctor. It is a very effective yet gentle eyelid cleanser, I've been using it twice a day for 3 months now. Particularly in the evenings when my eyes are downright sore it feels refreshing to use this cleanser. Not sure about removing eye makeup as I haven't been able to wear any for sometime now. I will continue to use as I'm told it can take a good long while to get my eye issue under control (ugh!) I would say this product deserves all the praise it gets and I did find it locally for a reasonable price at a large chain grocery store.
Treatments (Eye) -Derma E - Eye Bright Dark Circle Cream
loveoutdoors 7/27/2011 8:31:00 PM
Decided to try this after reading about it on the board. Its very nice, moisturizes the area around the eye without feeling heavy. I don't really have brown circles but Ive noticed my eyes look a bit better since using this product and it seems to help on fine lines as well. Also no irritation which is a huge issue for me right now so that's a big bonus. I being dry/mature tend to pat in any area that needs a boost. Like the feel, results, reasonably priced, available at local health food store, will repurchase. Also received a couple moisturizer samples from the Derma E line which seem lovely as well. Note on packaging, the tip came off once but I placed it back in and it seems to be fine. Adding, March, I have used this often recently and my under eye area looks noticeably lighter. I've caught myself doing double takes in the mirror as my eyes look so much better. I'm not using anything to conceal nor makeup and they still look better. They didn't really look bad, but they do look much better, I'm surprised and pleased at the results.
Treatments -Paula's Choice - Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate
loveoutdoors 7/27/2011 8:13:00 PM
Was searching for gentle effective products as my skin and eyes were in dire need of help. Read reviews and several caught my eye as reviewers were dealing with same eye troubles as I am (blepharitis) so I decided to give it a go. I have to say I'm very pleased, this is the only active Ive used on my skin since May, no irritation whatsoever and very good results, even around my extremely sensitive eye area. Feels very nice on and allows for a smooth application of cosmetics on top. My dry, sensitive, mature skin loves this product :)
Cleansers -Paula's Choice - Skin Recovery Cleanser
loveoutdoors 7/27/2011 8:04:00 PM
My skin and eyes became a huge problem so I decided to try this cleanser. I like it, it has a nice lite creamy consistency and cleans my skin without leaving it tight or dry. All the irritation and redness I had seems to be gone (yeah!) I use it am and pm with a cotton cloth and follow with witch hazel. It takes my powder foundation off easily, I can't say if it works on eye makeup as I haven't been able to wear any for sometime now. I will keep using until my eyes are well again, then I may switch to another cleanser but I would definately keep this on hand in case of another flare. Very nice gentle, effective cleanser at a very reasonable price.
Pressed Powders -LORAC - Evening Out Complexion Kit
loveoutdoors 7/27/2011 7:48:00 PM
was visiting friends and went to sephora (rare as none by me), out of powder so I thought I'd give this a try as it felt really lovely to the touch. I purchased the medium and, as usual I am not light but medium looks a bit to dark. At any rate this is a lovely kit. 2 concealors and the powder in a beautiful dark mirror like finish kit which fits easily into your purse. It comes with an applicator for the powder and a brush for concealors, which are nice and creamy. I apply with a powder brush I have on hand, just a few swirls and I'm good to go. I mix a bit of both concealors and dab on any red spots with a small brush before applying powder. The powder feels very nice on my dry skin and doesn't hang up in any fine lines. Would definately repurchase, hopefully by wintertime the light color will be a good match.
Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - Loreal UV Perfect spf 50 +++ transparent skin
loveoutdoors 7/27/2011 7:33:00 PM
Purchased this as it was highly recommended. It's unlike any other sunscreen I've used in that it has no noticable sunscreen odor, just a pleasant scent. It isn't totally whitening or extremely thick and in fact goes on more like a moisturizer than a sunscreen. it leaves a bit of shine but I just let is set for about 15 minutes before I put on any makeup. At the end of the day my face still looks pretty good for lathering on the sunscreen. I use a serum and eye cream underneath, sometimes a bit of added moisture as my skin is dry. It seems to work well as I haven't gotten tan (yes, I do have a bit of color). Would definately purchase again, wish this was available locally.
I used this all winter and absolutely love how it feels on my skin. My skin is dry and this moisturizes well and allows easy application of makeup. No breakouts or irritations, just a nice moisturizer with spf 15. I used it for a couple days as the weather started warming but it isn't enough protection for me during the warmer months. I will purchase again next fall/winter as I really do love this product. Available at Sally Beauty with a very reasonable price tag. Packaging is not great as the pump stops working when there is still a lot of product left, not that big of a deal and definately wouldn't stop me from purchasing again.
For skin in need of clean and natural nourishment, as a moisturizer or for massage. perfect for any skin type, easily absorbed, won't clog pores, promotes clear, soft, healthy skin. All natural nourishing oil, ideal for the entire body. all natural derived from pressed almonds, Will use for 2 weeks or so and review. As much as l like this oil I don't think it's good for my skin (face), I will no longer use on my face. Adding used on body after shower and moisturizes very nicely continued using to end of bottle on body, very nice oil for added moisture.
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - 100% pure vegetable glycerine

Now Solutions. Purchased for extra moisturizing benefits. Says rough skin, simple cosmetic applications. outstanding moisturizer and skin cleanser that also provides softening and lubricating benefits. hypoallergenic, easily soluble in water, suitable for cosmetic applications. long shelf life, does not easily oxidize. All natural product derived from non-GMO palm oil or vegetable oil. Will use and review in 2 weeks. Adding, this is incredible as a moisturizer, my leggs and arms are incredibly soft, love it! I use just a few drops after showering and my skin stays moist. Typically I am dry by the next day but not so with this product, incredible.
I purchased the Beaming Rayonnant some time ago and just started using it this past month and I really like it. First time using a cream blush (haven't used blush of any kind for over a year), very silky texture, easy to apply, I like to use my fingertips. Gives a lovely hint of pinkish blush on my cheeks that Ive never been able to accomplish before. Perfect for dry and/or mature skin, I'm so sad because I went to check for other colors and they no longer carry this line in my area, hope it's available online.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - MUAC Green Tea/Pomegranate Cleansing Gel
loveoutdoors 4/27/2011 11:33:00 AM
Purchased a peel from MUAC and this came with the package. I used it after the peel and really liked it. Peel all done and have used it many times, I like it. Nice clean fragrance, jell like consistency, cleans skin well without drying, very nice, especially for dry skin.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - MUAC Aloe Jelly with Lavender
loveoutdoors 4/27/2011 11:28:00 AM
Purchased this on advice from MUAC with peel. This is lovely! It feels so soothing and calming when you apply. Used it after the peel and was glad to have it on hand. It has a watery jell like consistency, light scent, 2 ounces in jar. Will keep on hand for whenever skin needs soothing. Highly recommend.
I've been using this off and on for a little over 2 months. I really like the way my skin looks while it's on (possibly the "lift") As usual the color is not great for me but I still like the product. You can get a light coverage, which is what I like and it has a nice finish, not high sheen but not matte either. Easy to build for more coverage with the same nice finish. I'm dry so I have to moisturize before application. One note, I cannot use this around my eyes, it makes them puffy and/or dry which is common for me so don't let that sway your decision as this is a lovely product. Would have rated 5 if the color was a better match for me.
