WOW!!! I've been using samples of this product for just three nights now and I can not believe the difference in my skin! My cheeks are softer, rosier and incredibly clear! I use this in combination with the brightening serum and the foaming cleanser. These products are little miracles in a bottle. The cream can feel a bit heavy, but that's okay as most night creams are. I just wish I could afford to KEEP using this cream. At $525 for a one ounce jar, it is definitely not something I can use regularly.

Miracle in a bottle! I've been using this serum for a few nights now, and noticed an immediate difference in my skin. I have hyper pigmentation courtesy of chemotherapy and have struggled to brighten up my face since it developed. This serum has renewed my confidence and given me back my beautiful pre-chemo skin. Even my boyfriend noticed the difference! I use this product at night as this is when the skin renews itself from the craziness of the day. It is light, glides on nicely and does not have a strong scent. This has become a Holy Grail item for me and is worth the higher price point. I wish i would have known about this product when I was dealing with the big C. Incredible!
I think I may have found a new cleanser. I have used Purity by Philosophy for a few years now. A sample of this product was given to me by a friend and I cannot say enough great things about it! My skin feels incredible after using this product and it gets rid of all leftover traces of makeup, to include eye makeup. (Other products usually leave traces of mascara and create the dreaded "raccoon eye" look for me.) This cleanser has a nice, creamy texture, foams up wonderfully and has a light, pleasant smell. A small amount goes a very long way, too. The only downfall is the price point, but definitely worth every penny.
I got this because I found a little gift set and it was on clearance. I had also heard good things about it. Unfortunately, I heard wrong. This stuff left my lips dry and feeling flaky. I like that it is easy to find in my purse but that is about the only good thing. I actually think the scent is way to strong and find that the summer fruit one gives me a bit of a headache. I won't be buying these again. Too big of a disappointment for me.
This is my go-to bubble bath. I LOVE it! Most of the scents are wonderful. My only frustration is that they have this horrible habit of discontinuing things quickly. Every time I find a scent I really love, it disappears. They even discontinued the soft pink scent for a while. WHY would a company get rid of a top selling product?? I just don't get that logic at all. I also love the holiday scents but again, those are never repeated.
The black one is great, The colored ones, however, leave quite a bit to be desired. They just didn't pop and didn't glide on as smoothly as I prefer. I picked them up on sale for super cheap and would never ever pay full price for these at this point. Actually, I think I'd probably get more color by swiping a dollar bill on my upper lid. :/
Got this as a sample in a little kit I bought for 12 bucks and I must say...I'm not impressed. Not one bit. Clumpy and didn't lengthen at all. you're better off rubbing dollar bills on your eyelashes as it will probably produce the same effect.
I bought this on a whim at a local beauty supply one day, thinking it would be fun for halloween. It has replaced my expensive MAC liquid eyeliner and all the different gel ones I had. it stays on, doesnt' smear and doesn't dry out in the little pot. I Love this and for the price, you really can't beat it.
Horrible! Oxidized quickly and turned orange. Big disappointment, Clinique.
I used this for years in and after college but lately I've found it too drying. My skin would be red and flaky. Yuck. I won't use these anymore.

My go-to cleanser. Love it! My skin is clear and feels clean. The only problem I notice is that it doesn't do a great job of getting all the mascara off at times. But then again, it isn't a makeup remover, it's a cleanser. ;)
I'm so excited to have found a red lipstick that looks good on me! I've never felt I was able to wear red but this one is perfect. My teeth look whiter and I always get tons of compliments on how pretty I am when wearing this one. (I don't do anything different with my makeup other than this lipstick. haha!) I do hate how dry it feels but that was fixed by putting a lip balm on underneath it. I now want to try some other stuff from her collection!
This is my second Chanel Mascara and I really love it. My lashes look longer, thicker and aren't spidery. I think it is worth the money.

I am LOVING this powder! I've actually switched to this from my all time fave Clinique powder. I've gotten more compliments on my skin and complexion since I switched. It lasts all day and doesn't look cakey. It's also super cheap!!! The only thing I hate is that it takes a few swipes with my brush to get enough product on it. I will buy this again!!
