This is a great, neutral pink shade which goes with everything. I use it all the time and have still got a lot left (I bought it a long time ago). It doesn't have great staying power but you can reapply it quickly without a mirror as it's so light you can't too much of a mess with it. It's really moisturising too.
Treatments -Paula's Choice - RESIST Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% AHA

I was hoping being only 5% solution, this wouldn't dry out my slightly dry skin (with mild rosacea) but it did. I tried using 1 pump every night and that was way too drying, even using it only a few times a week dried out my skin too much. Even though I was careful not to put it on my lips, it migrated there and really dried them out too. Not for me.
I have quite dry skin and use this twice a week. It's nice and gentle and not drying. It doesn't perform miracles but is a good maintenance product.

I have dry/combination skin and find this product makes my skin feel and look really well moisturisized and brighter. It plumps up fine lines and works much better for me than other products like Retinol, BHA, Clinique's Laser Focus (these are all too drying for my skin and makes my fine lines look worse). I keep coming back to this one and will continue to buy it.
Treatments -Clinique - Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle and UV Damage Corrector

This is too drying for my skin, I only used it once per day rather than twice and still found it dried my skin out a bit, making my fine lines look worse. I prefer moisturising formulas like Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair (my skin is combination/dry and also doesn't react well to Retinol).
I've been looking for a mascara that doesn't smudge, and this is it! No problems at all with smudging or flaking. It gives a natural look and it is difficult to build volume with more than one coat because it clumps. I wipe the brush with a tissue and comb through lashes with an eyelash comb after applying. I like it more for the fact that it doesn't smudge rather than how it applies and looks, I prefer Clinique's Naturally Glossy mascara but it smudges.
Goes on very thick and clumpy, even when you wipe the wand with a tissue and comb through your lashes. Also very difficult to remove, it's still under my eyes after makeup remover and a shower!
While I like the neutral colour of this eye shadow, I don't like the texture - it makes my eyelids look crepey and old. It looks uneven too rather than smooth on me. I wanted to like it, not sure why it works for everyone else and not on me!
Treatments -Skinceuticals - Refining Night Cream With .5% Pure Retinol

I've been using this once a week for 6 weeks, and found that it makes my fair skin (with mild rosacea) red and blotchy. My skin doesn't tolerate it, and it also caused some cheek pimples which I don't usually get.
Skincare - Face -Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Repair Concentrate

I use this product at night (under a night cream) for 3 weeks every few months as directed, and it always makes my skin soft, smooth and brighter. It seems to have a calming effect and is also good to use after being out in the cold or wind. I would like to use this every night as the results are so good - I will have to try the regular Advanced Night Repair for everyday use.
Treatments -Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant [REFORMULATED]
KristyEv 12/29/2008 1:36:00 PM
I used this product each night before moisturiser and after a few weeks could really notice that my skin was smoother. It started to look more lined and aged though instead of less, so I cut down to only using it a few times a week. I have dry/combination skin which is quite sensitive and didn't have any problems with breakouts. UPDATE: This dried my skin out too much even using it a few times a week so I had to stop using it.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Continuous Rescue Antioxidant Moisturizer
KristyEv 7/17/2008 12:13:00 PM
I have this product in the combination version and the dry - very dry version and use them according to my skin needs (and the season). I like it - it moisturises well, isn't perfumed, good packaging, absorbs well, no adverse reaction. I'll repurchase to use as my night cream.
I've got dry patches around my eyes and haven't yet found an eye cream that can get rid of them until now. The balm is quite sticky and I wouldn't wear it under makeup or out, but it's great to put on before bed. As mentioned before, the glass container is not very practical but the balm itself is great, very moisturising. I would recommend it to others who are looking for a super moisturising eye cream that doesn't irritate your skin.
Masks -Bliss Labs - Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask

This mask did nothing for my skin - no brightening effect, there was no difference at all. On the bright side, it didn't break my skin out. I'm left with nearly a full container of it that I don't really want to use as it's just adding an unnecessary product to my routine.
Treatments (Eye) -Clarins - Skin-Smoothing Eye Mask
KristyEv 12/18/2006 1:57:00 PM
I get dry patches sometimes under my eyes and on my eyelids (despite using eye cream twice a day), and this mask does a good job of getting rid of them. It's a temporary effect, but I don't expect more from a moisturiser! It leaves the skin under my eyes firm and concealer goes on a lot more smoothly after using this. Be careful to remove it properly though - I smothered my eyelids in it and got a swollen eyelid from a clogged oil gland! Usually I rinse it off in the shower but that time I removed it with a damp cotton ball.
