Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)
beauty_junky 2/2/2004 3:49:00 PM
I have tried MANY cleansers. I have poors that seem to look filled and dirty quickly. Glycolic cleansers I always had to stick to. I tried this purity now for over a week and my poors look CLEAN! I am so happy to have found this product. I will never be iwthout it!
This was annoying cleanser to use.
Treatments -Signature Club A - Non Toxic Silicone Plus

I did not think this product did much in filling in my wrinkles. I tried it twice then sold the "tested" product on ebay. I DO however highly recommend signature club A over 40 moisturizers just the best!
I am 35 with dry skin. This offers a medium coverage which is great for work days. Social events Ill stick to my diva Sephora products. This does not seem to moisturize my skin at all. I need to wear a good moisturizer under it or Ill peel. SPF 20 <-- IM LOVING THAT! Active copper..sounds good to me! Ill finish this bottle but probably wont buy again. Really great for a drug store bought foundation.
Taking the risk of sounding snobby here I will say that I was SHOCKED at what a great blush this was for being bought at a drug store! Soft Suede is such a pretty color. I just love it! Some days Ill dip my fat face brush into it and use it as a tanning powder!
If it was not for this product I would be walking around itching my head all day. I use this even though I spend a FORTUNE having my hair colored. I can not live without this product. I do hope they come out with one for color treated hair.
Concealers -Neutrogena - Visibly Firm eye treatment concealer

I bought this in yellow and it really does nothing in the way of a concealing anything on my face at all. I have not tossed it because of the copper peptide in it. I will finish the tube but will not buy again. There are MUCH better products out there!
High expectations then the big let down.. I went to the Neutrogena website and took their skin test. That was FUN. Next I run not walk to the store to buy everything they recommended for my skin type. This did not work well for my dry 35 year old skin. You get what you pay for. Next stop Philosophy! Wish me luck!
Pressed Powders -Neutrogena - Healthy defense SPF 30 [DISCONTINUED]

SPF 30 in a face powder that can be applied throughout the day without messing up your makeup is a GREAT thing in my book! Color is fine for me and I even was surprised to get a few compliments on my skin! I wear this work days but for social events I will use my more exspensive shimmery powders. I do hope other companies with start to put spf into their powders as well. One with some shimmer or sparkles would be perfect.
I don't get it? I thought this was fair yet I see all the rave reviews. I have dry skin and ended up tossing my jar in the garbage. I still find vasaline works best. Sincerely still in search of the perfect moisturizing lipstick or balm or gloss with spf. This was not it.
This BURNS my eyes each time I wash my face! I thought this would help make my poors look cleaner..NOT! My poors look terrible. I gave this a two because I like the way my skin feels smooth after I use it, but any product with grainy substance in it can do that. This one will go in the garbage. You get what you pay for.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

I was so excited to try this product. My hands are dry and I am always seeking out "THE" great product. I agree with many others in saying this is not it. I did love the smell and had high expectations. It felt great going on but in the morning my hands looked as if I never applied anything the night before. I am so glad I only bought the $8.00 tester size! I will use it up but will not buy again. I guess the hype has got me because I am still willing to try other L Occitane products..
