Skincare - Body -Burt's Bees - Burt's Bees Hand Salve
Pbokhors 3/31/2013 4:28:00 AM
A lot of negative reviews are because the users think this is a hand cream. It is not. It is a hand TREATMENT ! I absolutely love it. I had seriously dry, chapped and flaky white hands because of the cold winter and have used several hand creams. All of these only worked superficially and very temporaraly. This hand salve was the only product that completely releaved and repaired my ultra dry hands - in ONE night ! I love the herbal smell actually, and do not find it overpowering. I also love the packaging, you do not have to squeeze in a tube to get the product out. This is a very concentrated balm, which I apply with my finger tops (I do not put it on my palms). Yes, it is greasy, but in a nice way, not in a vaseline kind of way. You do not need to use a lot of product. Just massage it over your hands and go to bed. I did not even have to wear gloves. There is an immediate sense of relief when you put this product on your skin. The next morning, they felt healed and look great again. I highly recommaend this product as a hand treatment.
Egg whites are a natural wrinkle lifter and works wonders in just a few minutes. I break an egg, pour in the egg white in a small container that i keep in the fridge and remove the yellow egg yolk. Every morning after cleansing and moisturizing, I dab with my finger some of the egg white on my '' 11 '' lines in between my brows and a bit on my forehead lines. Make sure not to frown for a couple of minutes. The skin will tighten and suddenly my lines have faded away and stays like that all day. Do not put on too much as it can come off powdery Just dab a little bit on the lines, let it dry - and voila ! Wrinkle free for the rest of the day and the cheapest alternative to Botox. I keep my egg whites in the fridge for about a week and then replace. Good luck !
Moisturizers -Soap and Glory - Glow Job - Daily Radiance Moisture Lotion

When i look pale I use this product - I am a man so do not use make up , foundations or self tans as they look very unnatural generally. But this product is an exception. I put it over my moisturizer and rub it into my hands before applying it to my face (this is really importants to dissolve the beads of colour in the product) . I look so much healthier when I use this and no one knows it's a cream - the smell is subtle and my face really glows . It does the job !
This is my favourite pick me up when my skin needs a boost - I apply it on dry skin with circular movements and let it dry for 5 minutes. If feels great on the skin and is a real wake up call with the added mint. When I wash it off, my skin glows and looks radiant all day. I hope they will forever make this product - my friends love it too !
Treatments (Eye) -Shiseido - NutriPerfect Eye Serum
Pbokhors 7/25/2012 6:27:00 AM
This is advertised as a serum, but I use it as an eye cream since it is very hydrating so you do not need a cream on top of it. I have used almost all the eye creams on the market including La Prairie but this serum is the best i have ever used. A little goes a long way - i have the product for 6 months now (use it every morning). I used to have crows'feet and some fine lines under the eyes - they are completely gone ! I am convinced this is due to me using this product faithfully. You will need some patience to see the results but i will only use this from now onwards. Highly recommended !
For me, this is the one of the best shampoo's i tried. It makes my fine hair clean, bouncy , shiny and very soft. Besides that, the smell is simply amazing. I have highlighted hair and this brightens the colour without stripping it, and the quality of my hair has improved after one week use. Make sure you buy the conditioner too - you will not regret it. For course and thick hair, i am unsure if this would be a good product , but for me it works beautifully.I will repurchase.
Wow is all i can say - all of the reviews hereunder are exactly what I have experienced using this product - it does exactly what it promises and more. My skin has never looked better - I do not need to use a moisturizer afterwards, it does not dry out my skin. It glows with health the next day, and so much softer and refined.It does not make lines disappear, but it makes them softer and since the texture of your skin improves using this product, it actually does look younger I have immediately stocked it up. Finally a product that does what it says - go and buy it !
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Extra Smooth Sun Protection Cream SPF 36 [DISCONTINUED]
Pbokhors 4/29/2010 10:14:00 AM
I really do not understand why this product receives so many good reviews - it was actually the reason I bought it without trying in the store. In Europe, the SPF is 30 instead of 36. This product made my face so white, i looked like a Geisha Girl !! It was really scary so going outside with this stuff on your face would made some chidren scream of horror !! Even washing it off with soap and water was a nightmare _ I could hardly take it off my face. Never again will i purchase a Shisedio suncare product. I might use it only for a masquerade.
Treatments -Clinique - Total Turnaround Visible Skin Renewer
Pbokhors 4/15/2007 12:29:00 PM
like all clinique products, they only work in the beginning and than completely dry out your skin. the same for this one - my skin felt smooth and soft at first, than after a week of daily use, started to dry out my skin completely despite using a good moisturizer over it. like my friend once said - buy any clinique product and your skin will look like their pacakging -- GREEN !!! this was the last clinique product i will ever use - i no longer want to contribute to paying for their expensive advertising
Together with the Guinot Firming cream (which I mostly use for winter), this is my favourite eye product. I buy 2 tubes per year, and it continues to perform. Hardly any lines around my eyes - the product does not sting, is odourless, hydrates very well without making the eye area greasy or slipery. Just love it and will continue to buy the price is great too ! Don't bother buying the expensive stuff like La Mer, Lauder etc--- they charge a fortune for their rubbish (just so you pay for their expensive marketing) and they don't work as well as this one. Great product !
The only reason I bought this product was because of the good reviews on this (great) site - and I'm happy I did ! I was always put off by Lush products for their horribly smelly stores and their cheap packaging, but I have to say, this product is probably one of the best moisturizers I've ever used ! And I used many (La Mer, Dermalogica, Shiseido) - look no further, it's worth investing in ! Makes my skin glowy, soft, less lined, healthy etc. Make sure you don't use too much of the product, just spread it over your fingers and wipe it over your face. I use it day and night and I'm hooked ! Don't like the packaging, but hey, it's what's in the package that matters ! :)) Buy it now ! (and before I forget, their I love Juicy shampoo is also one of my favourites !) .
Treatments -Jason Natural Cosmetics - Vita-C Max One Minute Facial

This is an excellent product - I use it mainly after cleansing before going to bed since it can be slightly greasy, but gosh, it works ! I leave it on for 5 minutes and my skin is clear, smooth, radiant, less lined and the next day, I look rested. I love it !
I really don't undetstand the hype about this product, since it does nothing for me at all. I think it's more for those people who haven't looked after their skin for ages that it might make a difference. I often exfoliate and moisturize my skin, and when I applied this at night, it completely dried out my skin and actually made me look older ! The pump is terrible since the product is so runny, most of it is wasted on your bathroomfloor. I am using it now on my body to get rid of some ingrown hairs, and that seems to work . Otherwise, I will never use this again. It claims you need this after 27 - well, I am 37 and will never use such an agressive product again. Waste of monay !
This product may seem expensive, but it's worth the investment. I use this as an eye serum, and since the packaging is 30 ml, it takes ages before it runs out. I firstly apply a tiny drop under the eyes, and 10 minutes later , a hydrating creme on top (not necassary in summer, since this product is also very hydrating) . This is the only product that seriously reduces my fine lines, most of them have completely disappeared ! I'm 37 with combination skin and will continue using this great product. The rest of the products from this line are not so impressive.
Moisturizers -Dermalogica - Intensive Moisture Balance

I've got combination skin and this is my favourite moisturizer of all times (and I can tell you, I used most of them, even the ridicously expensive ones like La Mer) - it's soft, very hydrating, does not smell, keeps your skin soft and never any breakouts ! What else do you want ? Will buy this product for years to come. Other favourites in the fantastic Dermalogica line are : Daily Microfoliant, Skin Retexture Booster and Gentle cream exfoliant. If you use these , you skin will look at its best. Another great product for reducing lines (not available in the US) is called Protox 20 - my expression lines are gone ! I'm 36 and everyone thinks I'm 29 ! I can recommend Protox 20 to everyone who does not want the injections (and all the rest of the brands that claim the same, like Avon etc , are just a bunch of liars) . Protox 20 is the only product that says what it does. Get your hands on it if you can ! You won't regret it !
