it is a good thick cream masque, no scent, it doesnt seem to do that much. the ingredients are good. i sometimes leave it on as an overnight cream.
Sunscreen -Epicuren Discovery - X-Treme Cream SPF-45 Sunscreen
hippodeem 5/4/2013 3:56:00 AM
the smell is good, not sunscreen smell for a change. it smells like bee products, very hydrating, non drying, strong sunscreen spf 45. it does contain both natural and chemical sunscreen, not waterproof, good for strong sun everyday use for people who have dry skin. UVA UVB protection both. paraben free. it would have been perfect if it only has natural sunscreen.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

great hand cream , it is not the most hydrating one but it is pretty good, i cant get pass the strong annoying smell so i have to pass it. many ppl seem to love this hand cream and its scent. i prefer their foot cream, thicker and very hydrating, the scent isnt as bad.
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Dry Skin Therapy Intensive Repair Foot Creme
hippodeem 4/30/2013 3:24:00 AM
amazing foot cream, very hydrating and non greasy, no smell, very good product especially for the price , i have tried many high end foot cream, this one is better than most and at a fraction of the price. it doesnt remove calluses though, if you want that you need a stronger foot cream that focus on the calluses remover.
great sunblock for everyday, easy to glide on, it is not too oily or greasy, high spf, good packaging , paraben free, natural sunscreen, although not an organic product, it is still pretty good. i wish it was unscented, it still smell of sunscreen which is not the best.
Treatments -Jurlique - Purely Age-Defying Firm and Lift Cream
hippodeem 4/28/2013 2:24:00 AM
great scent, it smells of rose, like many of jurlique products. this cream is thick and rich, perfect for dry skin. i dont know about the anti aging part, i dont see any difference so far. it is pricey but the jar is large and it lasts a long time. it is a nice cream to use, not sure if it works, i hope at least it is prevention any further fine lines. ingredients: Aqua (Water)/Eau, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Cocoglycerides, Dicaprylyl Ether, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Silica, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Viola odorata (Sweet Violet) Flower Extract, Viola tricolor (Pansy) Extract, Trifolium pratense (Clover) Flower Extract, Bellis perennis (Daisy) Flower Extract, Arctium lappa Root Extract, Stellaria media (Chickweed) Extract, Taraxacum officinale (Dandelion) Root Extract, Usnea barbata (Lichen) Extract, Echinacea purpurea Extract, Terminalia ferdinandiana Fruit Extract, Fagus sylvatica Bud Extract, Vigna aconitifolia Seed Extract, Cichorium intybus (Chicory) Root Extract, Anogeissus leiocarpus Bark Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Xanthan Gum, Fragrance/Parfum*, Tocopheryl Acetate, SD Alcohol 40-A (Alcohol Denat.), Totarol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Geraniol*, Linalool*, Eugenol*, Citronellol*, Limonene*. * From Natural Essential Oil.
i dont like la mer in general. the face cream stings me, the body cream smell is too strong but the hand cream is a hit!. perfect hand cream really. lightly scented, very good texture, the best so far, hydrating and non greasy, just perfect really. except the high price. i dont think it is actually anti aging, but if it does, that is a bonus. the hand lotion is paraben free which is great.
Skincare - Face -Epicuren Discovery - Epicuren Probiotic Emulsion
hippodeem 4/25/2013 7:16:00 AM
great light - medium texture lotion, it smells yummy as well, like yoghurt. great for combo acne skin, or dry acne skin type, hydrating. i love that it comes in a pump. this product similar to the eminence pro-biotic but in a pump form and less tingling than the eminence ones as the eminence ones contain tea tree oil.
oh yes, super light weight and it disappear in seconds into your skin. it has both chemical and natural sunscreen ingredients. non shinning and no strong smell, very matte. i dont know about the claim that it protects the urban environment, i am doubtful that it does anything apart from the sun UVA UVB.
Cleansers -Yes To Carrots - Yes To Cucumbers Face Cleanser Towelettes
hippodeem 4/25/2013 6:33:00 AM
it suppose to be gentle but i couldnt get pass the strong fragrance. so no thanks. other than that, great wipes for the price.
a great lotion for every day use, very light , smells good and hydrating, it has all the good ingredients in it.
the smell is way too strong and awful to actually use this. i couldnt use it at all. it is just awful herby smell. the texture is light. i prefer the magic white ice better.
great pads for acne and blackheads, it is pretty expensive but it is convenient. i feel that it does contain alcohol, it stings and smells of alcohol. a little drying, i prefer to use in on T zone only. for oily skin, you could use all over. avoid eye area.
Moisturizers -Arcona - Peptide Hydrating Complex, Hydrate AM/PM
hippodeem 4/25/2013 6:25:00 AM
great light serum/ lotion. it hydrates very well, smells pleasant on a little strong side. i dont know if the peptides actually works, i have tried a few bottles, not much change but not worse looking either.
great concept but the smell is way too strong to use. even after rinsing with water. it doesnt seem to clean that well either.
