WOW, this stuff is the best!!! Try it!
This product cleansed well, I'll give you that. But it has given me little white bumps on my nose, cheeks, and around my chin, so I will not purchase it again.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Moisture Surge Face Spray
Emiline 1/7/2007 2:01:00 PM
I ADORE this product! I have fair oily/combo skin and I wanted a very subtle moisturizer---so here it is!In the morning it works as a perfect base for my tinted moisturizer and at night after applying my AHA cream it is the perfect topping! Cools and calms the skin and leaves a little bit of a glow. I always wake up in the morning with compliments from my husband on how calm and relaxed my skin looks. As long as they keep making this, I will keep buying it.
This makes a GREAT shaving gel. I know I'm commenting on a face wash, but it is terribly drying. When I use something less drying, I usually don't even need a moisturizer and my face is happier with less products. This does too much stripping for my taste. HOWEVER, since I didn't want to waste the product (it didn't irritate my skin or anything) I decided to try it on my legs for shaving. And voila! I think I will actually be repurchasing this for that purpose. It helps to soothe and disinfect ingrowns, etc., better than any other shave gel I've used.
Time to face the truth. Bars of soap do not work on my face. I don't know why, but every time I use one (I have tried many different brands) I end up with a problem. I have combination skin which is not particularly sensitive. The olive soap, like others, does not leave my face too oily or too dry. It simply makes it look bad. It gave me ruddy skin and 2 new large pimples. The more I used it, the worse it got. The second I switched to something else, my skin improved immediately. Try a sample first.
Foundations -Vincent Longo - Liquid Canvas "Dew Finish Foundation"
Emiline 4/25/2006 11:13:00 AM
This is my holy grail foundation. I don't know how many bottles I've used by now, but it's AMAZING. First of all, it is very moisturizing and with spf 15. I find I do not need a moisturizer at all when I wear this foundation (I have combo skin). It covers very well, and if I don't have any major blemishes I don't need concealor at all. I wear this with no powder and it makes my skin luminous and flawless. It's a little pricy at $45 (sephora.com), but well worth it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for luminous skin.
Treatments -Biore - Ultra Deep Cleansing pore strips
Emiline 4/25/2006 11:06:00 AM
Don't expect this product to REALLY unclog your pores. It's fabulous if you want to play Cinderella for the night and use these strips to temporarily remove the gunk from the surface. It seems to only remove the tips of the gunk, which, in effect, looks great. But when I wake up in the morning, it's all back where it started. However---not a bad way to receive a temporary fix. I don't mind keeping these around for emergencies.
No way, total disaster. I threw it away after a couple days. First of all, the smell is nauseating and it does NOTHING but make my hair look greasy and tangly. Big Ick.
This didn't cut it for me. It was ok, but didn't really condition very well. I still had to rip my hands through my long hair to detangle it. Also, it is too thick to squeeze out of the cap, I had to unscrew the entire thing.
Shampoo -Garnier - Garnier Fructis Shampoo/ Conditioner for Normal Hair
Emiline 1/20/2004 9:39:00 PM
Wow, for a drugstore 2 in 1, this stuff is great. I had to use it because I was traveling with my fiance and didn't want to bring my shampoo and conditioner so we shared his. I can't believe how great it is. I have long hair though and it didn't quite condition as much as it could have, but most conditioners don't even do that.
I have been using this perfume for about 4 years (among a few others) and I won't give it up. It has a wonderful and subtle smell which is very pleasing.
Scrubs -Earth Therapeutics - Tea Tree Oil Cooling Foot Scrub
Emiline 1/20/2004 9:33:00 PM
The smell is great, but a little strong. It is really nice on the feet but I needed to use a lot to feel anything significant.
Treatments -Desert Essence - Tea Tree Oil (100% Pure Australian)
Emiline 1/20/2004 9:31:00 PM
Wow, this stuff is strong. It doesn't do anything immediately but it is a great disinfectant instead of regular alcohol. I use it for a spot treatment on my face (diluted in water of course) and on random cuts or whatever else. A good thing to have around the house and it will last you FOREVER.
I love this spray. It feels so refreshing and it does wonderful things to my skin. It hurts the eyes, but I guess anything does. I will use this for a long time.
This cream is SOOO incredibly moisturizing. Like every Dermalogize product oI have used, you only need a tiny bit to get a lot of effect. My skin doesn't really need much moisture but sometimes I use it in spots. My fiance uses it after he shaves and his face is so much smoother and less dry. This really is a true moisturizer.
