Cleansers -Murad - Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser

I actually bought this on a whim when my LUSH products began to give me an allergic reaction. And I must say I'm so happy that I did! I absolutely love this stuff, it's been two weeks and my skin is glowing, looks more toned and just the overall appearance is improved 100%. It's a little expensive but definitely worth it.
So I decided to go ahead and get this because I used to get my eyebrows and upper lip waxed professionally, but cash is tight lately and my eyebrows were paying the price. This was my first time waxing at home and I must say despite how messy/stringy the wax can be it was really easy to use, not to mention painless. If was far less painful than getting it done professionally, and I definitely am going to stick to this method from now on. It seems like it's expensive but judging from the amount I used it seems like it will last a long time.
Liquid -Korres - Ginger and Vitamins Foundation, SPF 10 [DISCONTINUED]

I love this stuff! I have never worn foundation in my life until I tried this the ginger and vitamin foundation, I found them all too heavy or cakey looking on my face. I was using High Noon liquid bronzer from Fresh, which worked well but the price didn't do it for me. I bought it in L2 and it was a perfect match! It keeps my skin matte and natural looking all day and I find you need a really small amount to do the trick for coverage just to even out the skin. I'm really happy I took a chance with this product.
This product works great on my normal skin with an oily t-zone, I apply it twice a day and I've noticed my skin is absolutely glowing since I started using it a couple weeks ago. I do like the pump, but I'm not a fan of the glass bottle as well as the smell (Which is why this moisturizer was docked to a 4). The price isn't great but for the results I've noticed so far it's worst the cost, not to mention I like the aspect of natural ingredients. Definitely experienced better results than a lot of the women who reviewed this product it seems.
Treatments (Eye) -Korres - Evening Primrose Eye Cream

There must've been in an ingredient in there my skin didn't like, it worked fine for a couple of days then it almost seemed like I had an allergic reaction around my eyelids.They looked puffy and red and as soon as I stopped using the eye cream two days later my eyes were back to normal. When it was working did nothing for under eye circles or moisturizing, there's nothing special about this product. Definitely will not repurchase.
Moisturizers -Korres - Yogurt Cream (Yoghurt Cream)
alissatron 7/20/2009 7:59:00 PM
I'm starting to think this brand just does not work with my skin. I tried this out on the reccomendation of the sales woman at Sephora and it broke me out just like the other moisturizer I tried. It has no SPF in it and for 38$ CDN it just isn't worth repurchasing or giving another chance. Their body butter is lovely but I guess their facial products just aren't for me, maybe they just use an ingredient my face doesn't like. Which makes me jealous of all of the people it worked for, but oh well. The search continues.
Okay, so I recently purchased a moisturizer with no SPF, which I always think is ridiculous... they should just automatically put it all moisturizers by now. But anyhow. I was at the drugstore looking for a face friendly moisturizer for daily use and so far it does the trick. I mix it in with my moisturizer and it has a light pleasant scent and doesn't leave my skin looking oily or greasy. Nothing too special, but my skin doesn't really burn so I was just looking for something to prevent future damage and overall I'm impressed.
Moisturizers -Korres - cinnamon and echinacea gel-cream
alissatron 6/19/2009 7:02:00 PM
I agree with the other users that it didn't do anything special but I haven't broken out since I started using it and it also goes on well under makeup. It did seem to even out my skin tone as well, I want to try out the other Korres products but I might consider repurchasing for a nice light weight moisturizer that doesn't irritate my skin at all. EDIT: I ended up getting small little bumps around my chin and broke out on my cheeks which NEVER happens to me. I stopped using this immediately after and now too much is used to return it, I may just have to throw it away.
I bought a huge tube of this on sale for 2.99CDN and was excited after reading the rave reviews on here, although I love the smell I find it did absolutely nothing for my skin. After continued use I found it did more harm than good and just overall was not that impressed with this stuff.
I lovelovelove this product! It's great for a face mask, exfoliant as well as a spot treatment. I find it really makes my skin glow after using it, so glad I found this mask!
Although this is not the best mascara of all time I find it's the best performance one I have been able to find in a long while. I love the length and volume I get from this masara and it thickens my lashes nicely without looking too clumped. I have long eyelashes to begin with though so I find a little of this stuff goes a long way and I can easily build for a more dramatic look on nights that I decide to go out. Overall a very nice product.
I know this product is technically a bronzer but I prefer to use it as a nice sheer tinted moisturizer. I get perfect coverage for my skin and a nice healthy glow even on the coldest winter days. The price is a little steep but one container lasts me 3 months or so I'm willing to take the plunge for such a lovely product.
I love MAC products but their price usually deters me from purchasing everything from them, except for this eyeshadow. This was actually the first colour I ever purchased about 4 or 5 years ago and it's the only colour I've consistently repurchased. I love how the colour enhances the look of just about every eyeshadow I own and with my olive complexion really looks great if I decide to put a eyeshadow along my tear duct. I honestly love it, and seeing as I wear my eyeshadow wet, I hsven't noticed the fall out that other users have observed themselves.
Tinted Moisturizer -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear
alissatron 3/10/2008 12:04:00 PM
I just bought this product based on the rave reviews on here. i was throughly impressed with the coverage as well as the fact that it looked natural and made my skin glow! The only thing I wasn't too crazy about was the smell. If I could give this product 4,5 I would definitely a great find. I like it much better than my stila tm.
This has been my HG concealer for years and although there has been times I have purchased others I always seem to come back to this one. The coverage is great and 'soft honey' matches my complexion erfectly. One tube lasts me forever, and the price is very afforable!
