I use this in the past and I was no impressed. But after I was told from very good hair dresser HOW to use it …man my hair is so much better. What I did was 2 x weeks 1. Shampoo with Redken Extreme 2 x 2. CAT Treatment all over the hair for 3 min. 3. Extreme conditioner. Well I did this 3 weeks before highlights and my hair is not damage as always. Also after this 3 week treatment my hair looks amazing. Soft, shiny, none damage and lovely again. I am so thankful about it. What I was told also is that -the CAT Treatment can be use 2 x week .is not potent as other protein products. -Do not follow CAT Treatment with anything els than the Extreme Conditioner. - Extreme Conditioner is moisturizing enough, and made exactly to be use after the other Extreme products. - They are made to be used together , other way you will not see 100% results Believe me I try many many brands …but this really save my hair and did it very healthy again.
Sunscreen -Clarins - UV PLUS Protective Day Screen SPF 40
Daniela1977 7/3/2008 2:34:00 PM
Love this s/s.I had hard time finding the one for me as my skin is such pain for me. Very clog, prone and extremely easy break out. I never have problem with Clarins .I did try also Sofina Lucent which also never broke me out or clog my pores but my skin after week with Sofina come sooo dry. So i end up with the Clarins and i am so happy i did. In fact my skin and make up look much better with Clarins that without it.Also give me great matte finish for all day long,very soft skin,NO white cast and amazing under make up.HG.Most people add negative reviews ONLY b/c is expensive s/s and yes it is BUT i love my face and getting compliments. Highly recommend it.
Love this cleanser. I can’t believe I’m re-purchasing something. I get easy bored with products but I like this sooo much. Make my skin very soft, never dry me out, no clog pores and wash all make up really good .B/c I am on Retin-A my skin be come very flaky and sensitive so I had problems finding good cleanser the last months. I use Avene Gentle Cleaner 1 month now and I just buy my 2nd bottle. GREAT UPDATE..i wanted to try so much Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil and i stop the Avene for two weeks.Well i am just back to it and as i say this is the ONLY cleanser which don't dry my skin , no clog pores and help me a lot while i am on Retin-A.
I like the finish and never broke me out BUT dried so bad my face even i am combo. After week with Sofina my face looked awful, dry, dry and dry. I will not recommend for people with dry or normal skin, this will be good for very oily skins. Other way I have none clog pores or breakouts with Sofina Lucent.
Styling Products -Oscar Blandi - Jasmine Oil Serum
Daniela1977 6/17/2008 5:58:00 AM
I absolutely adore this product. Make my hair soooo soft, shine and frizz-free. For me the best way to apply is on damp hair and let my hair air-dry but if you use blowdrying you can apply few drops before or after it. I have been using so much over the years like Kerastase.But to be honest I never find something as good as the OB Jasmine serum.My hair is dry,thin and somehow damage.The serum is quite $$ but you need such small amount so will last long time.
I really like this cleanser but… I can say for sure that from all cleansers I used by now this is the ONLY cleanser that leave my skin amazingly soft (like baby skin) and never make my skin dry or itchy. Also help me a lot with my Retin-A as when I used I have no problems with peeling or flaking. But every time I use it I get whiteheads or /& clog pores. Such a shame.
I was in love with the Shu Uemura concealer by the time I look on the reviews on MUA and discover this one. I have to buy it immediately. Well I am so glad I did as this is extremely good one. I am a person who can leave without other make up but not without concealer.I have really bad dark circles and all my life I used concealer.So I really try nearly all in the market. This covers extremely well all the circles and is also very good for any face blemishes or marks. Is creamy and VERY long lasting. Even in super hot summer when all other make up is going wrong this stay. I really don't care IF this product have Kaolin in (some MUAer mention that), but i do care that cover ALL i want to hide on my face. Trust me you can’t go wrong with this one and yes is one of the BEST.I don’t think I will go back to any other. The color Beige is absolutely perfect for my NC 20/25.I also order in Ivory so I will update about the color. Definitely winner. UPDATE.I have now and the # Ivory. The Beige is absolutely identical to my skin. BUT i do like & prefer the Ivory for my eyes as is lighter color (not too much ) and is looking better for me. If you are NC 20/25 and costume to wear same color for your eyes & face. then you are better with the Beige color. UPDATE / After using this 3 months now i can definitely say that Shu Uemura Pro Concealer is longer lasting on the end of the day and don't need re-apply as CDP do.Still very good concealer but my HG is Shu Uemura.
5 **** for this product.I use it under my retinoids or any moisturizer.So far never broke me out or make my skin feel greesy.Calm my skin extremely well when is upsed from the Retin-A..My skin is combo,prone very reactive to many skin care products. My skin also feels so smooth and really soft from when i start to use it.I buy mine for 58 $ at skinstore.com .Is not cheap but you need only 2 drops to cover your entire face and neck.I really like it.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Neocutis Bio-restorative Skin Cream with PSP
Daniela1977 4/29/2008 7:56:00 AM
I couldn’t not write review here about this amazing cream. I use this more than year and this is the ONLY daily moisturizer which doesn’t broke me out or bother my skin.Is quite expensive but you can find it on EBay for much less. Well whatever cost me I will buy and re-bay. I love love this cream …Is just giving me so much positive results on my skin and the best is none problems for my super problematic skin. As I mention in many of my reviews 95 % of skin care and make up broke me out..or if not there is nothing they do for me. I am on my 3rd tube so I can definitely recommend this cream .In fact this cream and the Retinol from Skinceuticals are the only ones I buy more than ones. I am nearly 31 my skin combo/problematic. This cream absolutely calms my skin (especially after Retinol) and rebalances dryness or any sensitivities is great for stressed skin too …I LOVE IT ___________________________________________________________ water (aqua), octyldodecanol, glyceryl stearate, decyl oleate, glycerin, propylene glycol, wheat germ oil (Triticum Vulgare), stearic acid, cetyl alcohol, ceteareth-20, myreth-3 myristate, ceteareth-12, cetearyl alcohol, cetyl palmitate, tocopheryl acetate, dimethicone, borage seed oil (Borago Officinalis), carbomer, triethanolamine, methylparaben, propylparaben, glycosphingolipids, phenoxyethanol, disodium EDTA, BHT, ethylparaben, butylparaben, methylisothiazolinone and methylchloroisothiazolinone.
Hair -Kerastase - Densitive Nutritional Supplement
Daniela1977 4/28/2008 2:59:00 PM
I am taking these peels a month now and I will take them at least 6.As my hair was super damage, thin and fowling down. I say WAS because from when I take them my hair change completely .Much more healthy, shiny. Also I stop losing hair too. I simply love Kerastase as I can always see results from it. Nothing ells to say really as I got from the supplements what they promise. This peels contains taurine (an amino acid), grape seed and green tea (as antioxidants), and zinc (to stimulate keratin production). UPDATE 6/28/2008 I have double much hair now than 3 months ago. And i am sure about that as my hair dresser yesterday told me that i have so much new growing hair. LOVE this supplements.
Bronzers -Guerlain - Pearly Bronzing Powder # African Rythm
Daniela1977 4/24/2008 11:12:00 AM
Absolutely amazing bronzer. Packaging is very chic and the powder is great. I buy the African Rhythm (which is the darkest color) as I have Brunettes from the Sheer Bronzing Powder and is not that dark, so I risk my self and order the darkest. Well I was right. I am NC 25 and this color is just great on my skin. The color is very similar to GA Sheer Bronzer # 6. The texture is so nice and the finish is great too. No signs from orange either. Also is not breaking me out as other 90% powder do. Is slightly shimmering but not that much if you don't pass your self.I apply it with Mac 187 brush . I am very sorry that is LE b/c I really like it.
Oh yes i like this blush too.I have Coral beach too but it was too much for my NC 25.This one is the perfect peachy/pink color and the slighly shimmer in it make it even better.Lovely color...and very long lasting.
This is absolutely 0 to me .I try so much eye creams and this one is the worst. First the price is mad and second is no one single good thing about it. My eye area feels dry and the small wrinkles show as never before. I will not recommend to anybody. Honestly
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)
Daniela1977 4/10/2008 11:49:00 AM
This is the best brush ever.I use it for powder,blush,bronzer Is abcolutly the BEST.I am mad about brushes always buy new ones but my search finish here.I adore the way this brush apply my bronzer ( specially) b/c you never can go wrong with it. Highly recommended.
Excellent product. I have dry hair damaged from extensions and bleaching. I bought this one for fine hair, as its a spray liquid (whereas the thick hair one is a cream). This is great, soaks in, feels bit gunky but when washed the next morning my hair was like silk. I couldnt believe how soft my hair felt. Will be buying regularly!.Once or twice a week spritz on a little every night before bed! I do recommend this product BUT is nothing MUST have.There is not much exept great softner.
