Great scrub! Very gentle. It lasts a long time. It does leave my skin very soft and it helps me with the breakouts. Highly recommend this great scrub.
It is just OK. I did not see any improvement on my skin while using the SKII line. However I did not see it getting worst either. For the price I was expecting a lot more. I did loved the facial the SA lady gave me using their products. But after purchasing them and trying them at home I did not see the same effect. I will not be buying this one again. What I did like from this line was the whitening mask and the air touch foundation. The rest were just OK.
I LOVE IT!!! It is very light and great for oily skin. I had been using the La Mer Cream (original). But was finding that in the AM it was too much for me. I still use it at night and love it. But now I use the Moisturizing Gel in the morning and it has been working wonderfully for me. I really like it and love the smell. Definetely my HG AM moisturizing.
I was really excited when I first order this system. Unfortunately this burned my skin, I could not use it after a while. I ended up giving everything away. The only thing I did like was the mask. But the 3 Step System I did not. It was too strong for my skin.
This is my first Chanel lipstick and love it! I love how long it wears. It is a peachy/pink/gold tone kind of lipstick. The Sales Lady was the one that recomended this color. When I first looked at the lipstick I was not as excited, but when she tried it on I was so impressed. I love the quality of this lipstick, the color and the durability. Definetely recommend this color and lipstick.
I am not a blush person at all. When a professional does my makeup, then I am ok with it, but at home i never seem to use any blush, except this one. I do like bronzers, how ever hardly ever use it either. But this one is so light and it does have sort of the effect a bronzer does. I really love it. The color is very lovely. And I do use this one everyday (wierd for me). This one is comfortable for me to use, as it is just a bit of color. Love it!
This palate captures my eyes because of that yellow/lime gorgeous color. I bought it and love wearing. The colors are gorgeous. You can use it for the day, as well as for night. I really love the quality of all of MAC eyeshows, this one is not an expection. The quality is great and it last all day.
Eye Makeup Remover -Chanel - Precision Eye Makeup Remover

It is very hard finding a great eye makeup remover. This one is the best I have tried so far. It is gentle, it removes waterproof mascara really good. A little bit goes a long way. I wish it was not that expensive. As I use it every night and a bottle does not last that long, even thou a little goes a long way, i do use it pretty quickly. But will buy it again because it is extremely gentle with my eyes. And it is not as greasy as other ones I have tried.
Kerastase Oleo Relax Products ROCK!!! They are the best. My hair is very long, thick, naturally curly and have a lot of hair. When I mean a lot of hair, I am not kidding you. Many people said they have never seen so much hair like mine. And I love having my hair straight. With that said, I have tried many products to accomplish my "look natural" straight hair. Using these products over time have made it healthier and better than ever. My hair looks extremely healthy, I get complements on it all the time. I am a product junkie, so I love trying different things, but this stuff is the best. I recently tried Rene Furterer - Carthame line, it is very good and it leave my hair very soft, however I have to use a lot of product. With Kerastase a little goes a long way. I take great care of my hair and put a lot of time to it and using the best products does make a difference. These are great products and I highly recommended to anybody. BTW I also use some of the red bottle ones, for colored hair (forgot to mention I have highlights too) and they are amazing as well. Give them a try, your hair will thank you :-)
Cleansers -Jan Marini - Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser
babyscorpion 7/10/2008 5:24:00 PM
Very mixed feelings about this product. Every where i go to get a facial, they highly recommend this cleanser for my skin type. I bought a bottle a few years ago and got zero results. I saw no improvement whatsoever. Almost finished the bottle and nothing. BTW a little does go a long way and if this one works for you that's a good thing about it. Also, I do love the bottle that comes in and the pump. That's another plus. Anyway... facial ladies keep telling me that I should try it again. They explained to me that I needed to use this cleanser with dry face and that I should also use the Bio Clear Lotion... Well the first time I was not using the cleanser on dry skin as there were no instructions and the person who sold it did not tell me. So I decided to give this cleanser a second change. I will admit that I did see more results this time, but it burned my skin. I guess my skin is too sensitive for the Glycolic products everyday. My skin peeled, it was red around the nose and chin. I combined it with a very gentle moisturizer from Eminence and it did not helped at all. I had to stop using it, switched to La Mer and my skin is thanking me now. I gave it two lippies, because I do not think it is completely bad, i just think my face is too sensitive and i needed something more gentle for it.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream
babyscorpion 7/10/2008 5:02:00 PM
I absolutely love this hand cream, specially the smell. It does have a baby powder sort of smell. I love the smell of baby products, therefore it was easy for me to like the smell of this one. Also this hand cream is very hydrating, very heavy, a little does go a long way. It is pricey but it lasts a long time. I have my mom hooked with this hand cream as well. As a matter of fact, as writing this review i put some on, mmmmmmmmm smells gooooodddd :-) If you have a shopping mall close by that has a Sephora or a L'Occitane store, stop by and try it on before you buy it. They always have a "test one" there. Good Luck!
My favorite lipstick. I love it... I love how i have use it everyday or for a big event. To me it is extremely versatile. I love it, this is my comfort best lip color ever. Stop by the MAC counter and see if this color is good for you too...
MAC has inspired me to play with makeup. Before I only felt safe with a good foundation, mascara and lipstick or lip gloss. After going to the MAC counter a few times for them to do my makeup for events I got inspired on learning how to put the eye shadows. I have many other ones, but somehow always go back to the MAC Eye Shadows. Since I learned how to play with them I am addicted to MAC Eye Shadows. The ladies at the counter have helped me to learn different techniques, and now I have my OWN!!!! So exciting... Anyway... These eye shadows last ALL DAY... I love that. Even when I do a quick makeup in the morning and put just a little bit it lasts all day. I also like their paint, paint pot and pigments in combinations with the Eye Shadows. Love them!
La Mer are the best for my skin. They have changed my skin. Whether the miracle broth is true or not, it changed my skin for the better. When I first tried them I honestly thought they were not going to be as good for my skin because i do have oily skin and the cream is heavy. But when applied correctly it is great. From day one I have not had any problems with it. I use the following, morning and night: 1) Cleansing Foam 2) Tonic 3) Eye Concentrate 4) The Concentrate 5) La Mer Cream I tried a sample of the Radiant Facial this weekend. I honestly can say that this is better than any Facial cream or Masks I have ever used. It was sooooo good. Also tried the Refining Facial and love it. I know that not everything works for everybody and that it takes a while and some bucks, trying different things to find what really works for our skin. The climate where we live also matters. I am originally from the Caribbean, and when I lived there did not need a lot of moisturizer. Now I live on the dessert very dry climate and I do need more moisturizer. My best advice to you on this line, if you have not tried it yet. Is to try to find a few samples and may be start with the cleanser and a sample of the La Mer Cream and see how it goes for you. For me it has been healing and life changing. Love the products, I believe in them and they have changed my skin :) Good luck!
I was using Jan Marini's Bio Glycolic Cleanser, and some other products from that line. They were recommended to me by the salon where I do my facials. After a while these products burned my face, I am not saying they are bad but the combination of what I was using was too strong. I searched for another option and found La Mer. Since I have oily skin i was not as sure if they will work for me. I decided on investing on a few products, but did not buy this cleanser. However they gave me several samples of it. One sample of the Cleansing Foam last me a whole week, OMG it changed my skin completely. After a week I decided on going back and getting this cleanser and the eye cream. This cleanser has changed my skin (along with the other products), it is so soft on the skin, it gets rids of my makeup (i do use a different eye makeup remover thou). I always follow it with the Tonic and hardly even have residues of makeup. My skin is glowing and it is transforming. I have been very consistent with my regimen. I love La Mer Products. I think they are pricey, but they work for me. This cleanser is amazing I will highly recommend it to anybody.
