Moisturizers -Olay - age defying anti-wrinkle day cream plus serum
katpower 10/17/2012 8:31:00 AM
I love this stuff, I can't believe there aren't more reviews on it here. I didn't intend on purchasing this but for whatever reason I picked it up and think I've found a great warm weather moisturizer/serum. For winter I may need to go to something a bit heavier but for now I'm loving this.
I love the texture of this and seem to get an awesome finish with my Soho Blending Sponge - another great drugstore buy! I'm very fair and got the ivory but will probably get the next darker color for the remainder of the summer (I have the slightest tan, very slight!). Looks great in natural lighting.
Treatments -Acure Organics - 100% USDA Moroccan Argan Oil

I've been using this now for almost a week and really like this multi-use product! I use it as a nighttime moisturizer and wake up with plump and dewy skin, suing on my neck and chest 2 x's a day to try and correct some sun damage use it on my hair sparingly to tame flyaways and frizziness. I got mine on Vitacost for $12.99 for 1 oz. which is a steal. You use so little at a time I think it will last a good while (unless I find more uses for it!!!).
I really like this stuff! I have combination skin, slightly oily t zone and sesonally dry patches on my cheeks and next to my nose. Dry patches that actually get so bad they itch and flare up and flake, yuck! As we transition into colder weather I thought I would give this a try based on some previous samples I had tried. It is a bit "greasy" when initially applied but seems to sink in and do it's job overnight. My skin feels so plump and hydrated in the morning and baby soft.
Treatments (Eye) -Palmers - Line Smoothing Eye Cream

Great product, great value! I have also recently tried the night renewal cream and think both are such an amazing value. They seem to have high quality ingrediants and leave my skin feeling great. Give this a try!
Looks like I'm a little bit older than the others that have reviewed this product soI may give another perspective. I really like this! I was onkly "turned on" to Palmers a few months ago by my sister and that was the Cocoa Butter Lotion (which I really like as well). While shopping for the lotion I came across the skincare line of which I was a bit intrigued. After looking at a few reviews here I decided to try it out. I am so happy, I purchased the night renewal cream and eye treatment and so far love both! The night renewal cream leaves my skin very plump and soft in the morning and so far no breakouts. Sure, it is a bit heavy going on but I need that extra moisture - especially with colder weather coming. The website had a coupon and in the box is a $1 rebate. The price is so low that it's well worth trying. I'll review the eye cream as well. Give it a try, especially with winter weather coming, I think it is a great inexpensive night cream.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clarisonic - Pro Skincare Brush

Well, I have now had my Clarisonic Pro for about 1 week! I am quite frugal these days (out of neccesity) and the thought of shelling out the money for this was painful. However, my very dear friend works at a health and wellness clinic and was able to get it for me at the "wholesale" rate. So far I am very impressed and feel that if I were able to pay full price, I would have. My skin feels great, much smoother already and no irritations (yet?). I am most excited to use this on my neck and chest. I wish that I had taken care of these areas as well as I always have my face. My products do seem to absorb better, it's probably too soon to see any drastic improvements of course but so far so good!
Cleansers -Clinique - Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser

Got a sample size from the clinique counter, took it along on vacation since it was the perfect size. My face broke out (specifically my cheeks) almost immediatly! I have sensitive skin prone to flare ups on my cheeks but hadn't had the problem in more than 6 months. This had to be the culprit, didn't use it again ans the flare up was gone within 24 hours. Very disappointing. Guess that's why I don't ever buy Clinique, I should have known better.
Purchased this on clearance (I can't pass up a bargain) and tried it on my face a few times. It didn't seem to work well with my other products and really I don't think I needed it on my face anyhow. However, I started using it on my chest which has some ugly sun spots and find it to be woprking very well! It's already fading a larger sun spot noticebly and pretty quickly. I see that Walgreens has it on clearence again and will pick up a few tubes for this purpose.
Got 2 bottles of this on sale,really cheap ($4 US per bottle). I've been using this for about 2 weeks now and really think it's made a difference in my skin texture. I'm not sure about the "lifting" but my brow seems maybe a bit tighter. Though again, the texture of my skin is amazing! Softest it's been in years.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Moisture

I found this on a clearance rack for about $6, what a deal! I've been using L'Occitane Precious Cream and simply couldn't afford it anymore. This has been a great find, my skin looks better than ever. Much more even and my dry patches are gone (for now). Been using this for about 3 weeks and very happy with the results.
Cleansers -L'Occitane - Immortelle Brightening Cleansing Foam

I really like this cleanser, I've recently purchased the eco-refill size which is lasting me a very long time and slightly more economical... not to mention less waste. I think this is the best cleanser I've tried yet and I have tried a lot (everything from top of the line department store to drug store/health food stor brands)!
