Treatments (Eye) -La Prairie - Cellular Eye Moisturizer SPF15

An excellent cream, moisturizes plumps up fine lines, protects against the sun. It also brightens up my eye area. The jar is lasting me for ever.. Packaging is not the best. I would rather it in a pump bottle.
Moisturizers -La Prairie - Cellular Resurfacing Cream

I agree with everyting that the reviewer below stated! This cream is AMAZING! I've been using samples for a week and I can honestly say my skin is glowing. It even has a nice colour to it. My pores appear smaller and the texture of the skin is so much softer and beautiful. It never broke me out. Smell does not bother me! Make sure you get a sample before buying this. It is way too expensive. Sensitive skins may find this a bit harsh. Update: This is truly an amazing cream. It helps with the overall appearance of the skin tone. it mattifies and am blemish free! Very happy! I ended up buying the full size from strawberrynet.com for around $200 aus for the 40mL size. It says is for night time use only and not to be used over other moiturizers or serums, however you can use a moisturizer on top if this is not enough for your skin. I use it on it's own and I find it enough for my combo skin.
Average product! Smells like a cheap lotion. Not very hydrating. Certainly not worth the money. It dries instanly (huge plus). I thought I'd love this as much as I love La Prairie's cellular lotion but no, it doesn't come close. IMO Kiehl's "creme de coprs" is a much better moisturizer and way cheaper! For those who love this product: STRAWBERRYNET.COM HAS A GOOD SPECIAL ON THE 200ML.
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Violet Ink Long-Wear Gel Liner

Unfortunately this colour looks too harsh on me. More so than the black. I bought this in replacement of Mac macroviolet thinking that it would be the same colour but hoping for better staying power. The staying power is impressive but the colour is way deeper even tho it looks somewhat the same in the pot. It doesn't do anything for my brown eyes. No violet in it at all. It looks grey on me. It also goes a bit dry in the pot. Will not be repurhasing.
Shampoo -Frederic Fekkai - Full Volume Thickening Shampoo

This shampoo is ok for my hair.. Just ok. It does not add any volume but it does not make it oily. My hair type: long and healthy. Tends to get flat and oily roots after a couple of days. Frizz free normally.
Terrible product for my hair. I've used this on both wet and dry hair. It always gives me static, horrible, ugly unmanagable hair.. it does not make it oily but is just horrible! No seperation either, it does the opposite for me! My hair type:Long Healthy hair next to nothing frizz.. No thanks!
Ok so this really makes me look radiant and glowing but I have to mix it with Nars balanced foundation otherwise I look too oily rather than glowing. Coverage is medium, looks natural but if feels heavy on the skin. I bought it in #25 (petale) colour. I have La prairie and Rubinstein's Prodigy foundation also Kevin Aucoin's skin enhancer, all great foundations but i reach for this combo more often b/c I look more natural and radiant with this combo.
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Diamond Cuticle and Nail Creme
StellaCH 4/4/2008 7:27:00 AM
I am sad to read on here that this has been discontinued. It's such a good product for me. Keeps my nails and cuticles so neat and healthy looking between manis/pedis. Even my manicurist commended after a few months of seeing me that the cuticles and nails looked great! I like the smell and yes the cream can be a bit annoying cos it sits around for a while before sinking in and it does dry my hands a little but the results are so good that I am willing to overlook it!
I use this 3 times a week. It makes my skin glow. I love it. I would not use it everyday though, I get a feeling it will be drying and irritating!
I love this.., non- drying or irritating. It cleanses easily, feels nice on the skin. No breakouts. The best one i've use in a long time!
Moisturizers -La Prairie - Anti-Aging Emulsion SPF 30
StellaCH 3/27/2008 12:15:00 AM
This is the only 30 spf that does not break me out! I am very surprised actually b/c it's quite rich! I break out BADLY using anything over 15+.. very frustrating. It normally takes 2 applications... gggrrr I wish LP was not so insanly expensive!
I believe this is the easiest brush to use, especially for peple who haven't actually mastered the eyeliner tecnique yet.I find it easier than Mac slunted brush and my artliner (Lancome). I am no expert yet but I can definately achieve better and straighter lines using this brush with liquid or gel eyeliner I like Mac fluidlines and Bobbi Brown gel liners. If you are not yet an eyeliner master do not expect this to turn you into one over night, practice practice!! :)
It takes practice t get this right b/c the brush is soft and moves around. Overall a good product though! Nice rich colour (I bought black), doesn't run or flake!

Scrubs -Peter Thomas Roth - Botanical Buffing Beads

Good for my body but not my face. It broke me out. I ll never buy it again as I can find a cheaper one to use on my body and it will do the same job!
