I bought this after reading the reviews on MUA. Let me just state that my family members have a tendency to age around the eyes area. This is severe enough that insurance companies have been willing to pay for eye surgery due to vision issues (upper lid dramatically sags). Also, we have a tendency to have very crepy under eyes. Anyway, I was getting desperate and even using Tazorac underneath my eyes to try to diminish the crepiness. All I did was leave my under eye area extremely dry and peeling and looking worse...then I tried MD Forte Skin Rejuvenation Eye Cream. IT IS AMAZING! I've been using it morning and night with a moisturizing eye cream on top AND SPF for eyes. After 2 weeks I looked in the mirror at work and was completely shocked at how good my undereyes looked. I can't wait to see what I look like in a few more weeks! It's definitely recommended and it's an Allergan product (maker of Botox and Latisse) so they know anti-aging! Love it!

I've been using Tazorac for about 3 years. Last year my derm moved me up to the .1 strength which was fine in the summer but wreaked havoc on my skin in the winter. Instead of looking younger, I looked older from the dry and flaky skin. Putting on foundation become a chore and I was making my skin worse by using scrubs to remove the flakes. This year I decided to change my foundation to MAC Studio Sculpt w/ SPF 15...it helped but I needed more. That's when I found Cetaphil's RESTORADERM Skin Restoring Moisturizer. Within a week my skin is moist with no flakes or cracks. My foundation looks flawless again and I can use the Tazorac without issue. Great product!
Nails -Unlisted Brand - Red Carpet Manicure System

Let me just start out by saying I'm not a manicurist - just a person who likes their nails done. My problem is that polish chipped within a few hours (if I was having a good day). So a few months ago I tried CND Shellac and loved it! I didn't love the price so I considered buying products online and doing it myself. Then I saw Red Carpet Manicure line at Ulta. I bought the entire kit with a red polish. Let me start off by saying don't waste your money on the $20 handheld LED light. It works but takes forever. Get the Pro Light and save yourself time. I now have beautiful nails that look like I went to the salon and they last forever. Best part is I can do it at home. The basic pure acetone soak wrapped in aluminum foil takes it off in 10 - 15 minutes. My mother loved how it looked so much that she asked me to do hers! It's perfect - as a matter of fact, I may need to get an extra light to do her nails!
This is definitely the best concealer I have ever used. However when I was asking which color would be best for my skin (NC25) the makeup artist gave me NW25. I found it way too pink. The NC20 was too fair. So I mixed the 2 together in a MAC pot................just right! I used equal parts of each and I can now easily leave the house with just concealer on! Great product.
