Lotions/ Creams -John Masters - Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Milk

Lovely scent, stays on a long time like a perfume. I like vanilla scents though. It does not moisturize much sadly. Mostly a luxury for the smell. Does nothing for my skin, not silky, not moist, nothing.
Moisturizers -L'Occitane - Immortelle Precious Fluid
cashmerelover 12/8/2011 1:52:00 AM
What a boring product! Truly not worth the money. It does not moisturize well, but leaves a film of something on my face that feels almost unpleasant, I had to wash my face again after using it. Skin did not feel supple as usual after a good moisturizer that sinks in. Too bad, I love l'occitane but face care is not their forte. Will stick with thalgo and peau vive.
I am on my 6th tube. My mom as well. We love love love it. It matches my skin tone perfectly, it melts into my skin, stays on all day and does not crease at all, even under the eyes. My HG concealer. I have not found anything remotely as good anywhere else, including Mac (both studio finish and the liquid one in the tube), lancome, shiseido, guerlain, and so on. I keep looking b/c of the price, but in the end I know I will repurchase. One tube lasts 6 mo with daily use.
Great coverage, I love the fact that 03 matches my skin tone flawlessly, and it does not break me out. Plus it stays on the whole day. I only use half a pump in the centre of my face to diffuse redness and post partum uneven skin tone ( which I suspect will be premanent:(. Anyway, as long as Guerlain makes either this or Lingerie de peau which is equally impressive but a touch lighter, I will have seemingly amazing skin.
I am on my second bottle of this product, and plan to keep on using it. It is light, fresh feeling, and does the dual job of moisturizing and priming for my acne prone skin. I have used smashbox primer, and arbonne primer before this, but found them both heavy. This is light, fresh, beautiful and luxurious. A HG product for me.
I purchased this by accident, looking for the EDT, which to me smells quite differently. I do like it though, I have somewhat oily skin, and am layering it with the Dior Addict Shiny body lotion (if that is what it is called), and it stays for the whole day. It smells spicy and conforting, a good winter perfume. I love spraying perfume on and then putting my cashmere sweater on, it keeps the fragrance in, and I can smell it underneath my cowl neck whenever I need a hint of comfort.
I love the feel of this wash, it is so creamy and soft. A little goes a long way. One tube of it, with daily use, has lasted about 4 months. I use it in the shower in the mornings. it leaves my face very clean. It is a bit more drying than my previous wash made by ROC Enydrial, but that one was discontinued, so I am now impressed with this. I did find however that the Shiseido cleansers are of similar feel and quality and are quite a lot cheaper!
Lip Treatments -Clarins - Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm

I am on my third tube of it. Love the smell, the feel, love everything about it. It lasts fairly long, and it does not have any taste. It is one of the best lip conditioning treatments I have tried, and really nice to apply prior to bedtime. It sets the nice calm mood for me
Treatments (Eye) -Shiseido - Benefiance NutriPerfect Eye Serum

This is a lovely eye cream, it does not irritate my very sensitive eye area (I am quite allergic to lots of ingredients) and it does hydrate well. I prefer it to the moisture replenish eye cream from Shiseido, which is a lot lighter. I would definitely repurchase if I weren't always on the lookout for something new. I don't think it did any miracles though, just a decent nice eye cream (or at least I use it as such, despite it being an eye serum).
Moisturizers -Shiseido - White Lucent Brightening Moisturizing Emulsion
cashmerelover 11/2/2010 2:05:00 AM
this is a very nice moisturizer. I have mostly oily/combo skin that is very sensitive. This light thin emulsion is easy to apply, it absorbs instantly, and it leaves my skin soft but not greasy. I like the smell, and the pump packaging. It is quite pricey though, and I do not necessarily believe in the whitening effects, although I have only just used it for one week. I don't really need my skin to become whiter, would just like some of the blotchiness to go away. so far a lovely light moisturizer especially during premenstrual days when my skin is at its oiliest.
