Moisturizers -La Mer - Creme de la mer moisturizer

Clogged my pores, broke me out a little. Nothing good to say really. It is probably an ok cream for someone with great skin needing simple nourishment and luxury name, but this cream really does not solve any of cosmetic problems, and for its price it should solve, like, all of them! Documentation says "use it all you life"... right :)))
This hand cream has a unique sophisticated scent and moisturizes like crazy. Soft milky texture, dries to silky finish pretty fast.
Thank god it didn't break me out, phew. This scrub comes in a transparent jar, has a divine citrus scent (my mood goes up and high each time i use it), and the particles are just right - not too small, not too sharp. I use it like once a week or whenever my skin is flaky. So I certainly don't overuse it. Very pleasant product.
I really like this lip balm. I have a "rose" and a "nude". Rose is my favorite! It brings life and spring to my face. I was afraid it would be just too "baby-ish" and bright for me, but no, it is a prefect fresh pink, not too cold and not too tawny. Initially, it gives me juicy fresh lips, with very groomed look and shine. After a while, the pigment is still there, and I'm loving it , as i have rather pale lips myself. Nude tint is very calm, quite the own color of my lips and is perfect to use just to add "suppleness". Great stuff. The only thing I wish the cap was more traditional, cos it is a really small cap sometimes hard to grasp :)
Conditioner -Alterna - Caviar Anti-Aging Volume Conditioner

It is a really good conditioner with a pleasant synthetic smell. It gets my hair fuller and shiny, hair looks great, no complain there. However, the price and the packaging will not allow me to repurchase. The Alterna bottles are the most weird.

It is a good shampoo with a pleasant synthetic smell and good foaming abilities. However, the price and the packaging will not allow me to repurchase. The Alterna bottles are the most weird.
Skincare - Face -Natura Bisse - Oxygen Complex Intensive Concentrate

I love this product as a morning treatment. It gives skin great texture, makes it mat, and also gives a really fresh look to my face. I believe it does what it promises - makes you look like you have a healthy lifestyle. It lightens my skin a little too.
Unfortunately, this product gave me bad allergy (while i'm usually not allergic to cosmetics). Can't risk my eyes, so won't continue. Too bad, I had high hopes after reading all reviews. UPDATE: gosh, this stuff is scary! My mother developed serious allergy, she had it all red and swollen around her eyes for couple of days and even had to stay home. What do they put in there?
I love this serum and so glad i found it. My skin has rather every problem you can think of, a lot of imperfections, pores plus breakouts. This serum improved my complexion dramatically. Not only i have a fresher skintone now, I also don't remember when I used an acne patch last time! I REALLY regret i didn't have this when I was 16..... A apply it twice daily, and it is particularly nice in the morning, as I don't like putting creams on my face, everything shines and nothing looks good. This serum delivers mat fresh face all day long. Thank you so much who invented it! It's a bit troublesome to find it if you live in Europe, but it's all worth it.
It is a pleasant herb-smelling mousse that lasts quite long. Slightly drying feeling, better not use it in air-co / winter situations.
If you want your hair to look like you've not been washing it for a month, you can try it. I like fluffy hair, and this mist unfortunately mad them look greasy.

Shiny finish, and feels heavy on face.
Skincare - Face -MD Formulations - Illuminating Serum

I had a tester size of it and was using it for about 10 days. My skin didn't get any bad reaction. My clothes and bedsheets did. Yellow stuff, very difficult to wash off! O_o
Treatments -MD Formulations - Facial Creme Sensitive Skin Formula

Got a sample as a part of MD Illuminating Kit. According to Paula review, the pH is too high (4.4) in this sensitive formula. Given I only would use it for acid action, I don't see much sense. As for my personal experience, I found the texture horrible, it basically doesn't spread and is very tight.
Well so far I like this mask better than Anti-stress actually. Precious Mask does make my skin very smooth and groomed, and pores disappear. I love the smell and the packaging too.
