I like it. It's a very hydrating eye gel which absorbed fairly quickly. Plumps up my fine eyes without any heavy feeling.
Skincare - Face -Perfect Potion - Geranium moisturizing emulsion
glenda 12/21/2002 1:12:00 AM
Well like all the PP's products, it has pure essential oil in it. That's the most appealing point makes PP one of my fav brands. This moisturizer isn't greasy and I think it's enough for skin in summer as well. But for drier weather, you may need something more hydrating. I won't buy this again in the near future because I'm the person who like to try new products and always shift around :)
At first, I use about 2-3 drops, using my palm to spread it out on my whole face. The essential oil in it is very soothing for my face. My acne scars are fading as well. But then I found that it's somehow making my pimples worse. So I write to PP and the SA said it's not good on acne and that I should only use it on scars. So I did and it's wonderful ever since.
This is Lancome's latest product from the Hydra Zen series. I really like its texture (fluid) which is really easy to get absorbed. Its scent like other hydra zen products which is very soothing. And also this is quite moisturizing. So if you have oily skin, I think you can wear it as a moisturizer, although it's treated as a serum to wear under it. I can see my fine lines are plumped and face is relaxed.
Moisturizers -Sisley - Hydra Global Intense Anti-Aging Hydration

Great night cream to fight for anti-ageing. It contains retinol and many other vitamins. But remember not to just apply it directly to face. SA told me to warms it up then pat it on face and finally spread it outward. Similar method as La mer's. Next morning you'll find your face has less lines, glowing and energizing!!
Expensive moisturizer which breaks me out. And I need to say that I'm not a sensitive skin person not many products can break me out :(
Cleansers -Sisley - Buff and Wash Botanical Face Gel
glenda 11/15/2002 4:02:00 AM
the scrubs inside is too big and hard, too harsh for daily cleansing. I'll definitely pass.
I love love love this mask. When I first tried it, I'm a bit shocked becoz the color is ugly yellowish (like MD formulation's Hydra-firm AHA mask's color, but didn't hydrate nor firm LOL). OK back to this mask. I don't have sensitive skin but still feel some tingling sensation after about 2 minutes, but not too bad. After 15 minutes, rinse off, my face is deadskin (most of them) free and glowing!!! The price I think is ok, $23 for 4oz but it should last quite a while. BTW, I bought it from dermadoctor.com
Masks -Decleor - Masque Hydravital - Moisturizing Face Mask
glenda 11/12/2002 1:12:00 AM
quite good regarding its hydrating level and smell. I left it under my eyes too with no problem. My only complaint is it's too watery, texture is like fluid, much lighter than a mask texture. So it's hard to spread it on evenly on face. I'll give it 4 lippies. But I found my cheaper better hydrating mask. It's Nuxe's.
Moisturizers -Guerlain - Guerlain Hydramythic fluid SPF15
glenda 11/10/2002 1:27:00 AM
I'm a Guerlain skincare fan but this product didn't impress me. I mean it is a nice day fluid with SPF 15 but it makes my combo skin shiny and I noticed it make my face more oily during the afternoon which I obviously don't want. So I think I'll pass.
Treatments -Peter Thomas Roth - AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel
glenda 11/10/2002 1:18:00 AM
My all time saver!!! I don't have serious acne just a few at times. But there are some clogged pores on my chin and dead skin on T zone which can't really get rid of by just using scrub. It contains 10% glycolic acid (AHA) and 2% salicylic acid (BHA). It really help to unclog my pores, flattened my acne, removes most of my dead skin without irritating nor drying my combo skin. Best of all it's AHA and BHA together so no need to use them separately like other brands (i.e. PC). Price is high ($50) but as long as it delivers good result it's not unbearable. Also I only use 2 pumps at night and it can really last a long time. My only complaint is it absorbed into my skin SUPER FAST so you need to have fast hands. LOL. PS. don't reapply on the same area, it'll dry out your skin. 1 layer is enough.
OMG, this is the best firming and anti-fine-lines product which can also use under my eyes to diminish lines. It got absorbed really fast with no significant smell. The texture is between water and gel. If it's not that expensive, I'll definitely stock up.
I wanted to love this but it just didn't work for my fine lines nor dark circle nor puffiness after about 2 weeks use.
I would say this is a really good anti-aging serum for the people who hasn't seen any aging or just started to see. It has a really refreshing smell and absorbed to skin fast. I can tell my fine lines are smoothed and softened in about 2 weeks. But I'd prefer Lancome's resurface to this one since Lancome's acts faster and better.
Skincare - Body -Lancome - Soleil Cool Confort After sun body balm
glenda 11/3/2002 12:03:00 AM
This is a good product to prolong your sun tan. I chose body balm instead of its lotion type is because I have drier skin. But it's a average hydrating body lotion which didn't give the hydration my body needs in the winter. I'd say it's only suitable for summer use for its hydrating level. Also don't like its packaging which is a big jar that you need to use your finger to dig out the balm. I'd prefer a pump dispenser.
