Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Vivite Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 30

I am using this along with the other products in this line (the night cream, the exfoliating wash, the serum) and it is all working great. I have tried a lot of sunscreens over the years, but this one is doing the trick. It goes on smooth, absorbs without being sticky. I sat in the sun in Florida at a football game and not a bit of sun showed up on my face. Terrific stuff and it feels so good when you put it on. I am using so much less makeup since switching to this brand of skin care and I'm loving that.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Vivite Exfoliating Facial Cleanser

One of the best products out there in my opinion. I use this a couple of times a week. It is a good size bottle and you only need a small amount to do the trick. My skin glows following this wash. I love it. I had been using Philosophy Micropeel once a week, but this is so much easier, better and, I believe, cheaper because it should last forever. I love this line of face products because Vivite really works and I have tried a ton of stuff over my 69 years. Give it a try.

I had been using MD Forte but decided to try this after seeing it in my Dermatologists office. WOW! I loved it so much, I ended up buying the entire line of products. It does what it says it will do. I especially love the exfoliating wash and use that a couple times a week & it's like having a facial. My 69 year old skin looks so much better and I have been using much less makeup - only a bit of concealer & powder. Give this a try because it is so worth it and not really that expensive when compared to other brands and the bottles are large, you only need a tiny bit of product, it should last a long time.

GREAT STUFF. I have been using Laura Mercier for years, but thought I'd try something different. WOW! I love this and, for my skin type, it is doing much better than LM. It's not as heavy and I don't oil up as much throughout the day. Also, it comes in a nice range of forgiving colors. I definitely will buy again. My only complaint is the packaging. It is difficult to pump out the correct amount and often I get too much (it only takes a tiny bit to do the job) and I fell I'm wasting a lot of product.I wear Medium & also bought Medium-Tan for Summer.It wears well all day long and I don't need a re-touch - just a bit of powder mid-day.
Crème -La Mer - The Treatment Creme Foundation SPF 15

This is the best foundtion out there for mature skin. Easy to apply and looks totally natural, while still being good for your skin and giving you some sun protection. I have tried many of the department store foundations and this has become the only one I grab for. I started with a sample jar from an ebay vendor before I jumped totally into paying the price for an entire jar. Yes, you have to get a tiny amount (that's all it takes) out of the jar, which can be a hassle, but the result it worth it. The price is a bit high, but it will last forever due to the small amount needed. I will definitely re-stock when this is gone. I sometimes use a small amount of Chanel powder over this, but other times don't need it if I want to look totally natural. The best product yet for a flawless face.
I LOVE this product. I had been using Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer for years, but this is superior for me. I'm a bit oily and with LM I would be blotting all day. I use this now with a little of JI pressed powder over it and I'm set for the day.
Powder -Lancome - Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup

I have used powder foundations for years. Everytime I try to find a liquid foundation it never works. I have very oily skin and with liquid/cream foundations I end up quickly looking very oily. I, also, find powder foundation much quicker to put on. I just use my powder brush and zip I'm ready to go. This powder makes my skin look flawless, my pores vanish, and controls the oil very well. I have tried Jane Iredale, MAC, Chanel, Laura Mercier, and Laura Geller. Lancome seems to have the best color match for me and holds up better than the others throughout the day. I would recommend this for someone with oily skin. Dry skin would be better served with a liquid or cream foundation, but you oily skin gals who like a powder foundtion should give this one a try even though it is a bit costly. There is a lot of powder in the compact and it will last forever.
I don't know what treatment qualities this product has but when applied it makes your skin look glowing and flawless. Pores seem to disappear and you can easily go with out foundation and just some concealer here and there. It makes your skin silky smooth. I got some samples that I have been using but will buy the full jar when my samples are gone. Can I justify the expense? I figure that I probably spend that much anyway trying different products and if I just buy this one, I'll be about even. It's, also, nice to do away with all the other jars on my counter and just use this. Give it a try.

This product does what it says it will. It's easy to use and you finish looking refreshed with glowing skin. I have re-ordered this. Go to HSN and you can get it much cheaper - about $35 - a real deal. I use this once a week, but if I have a special event I will use it prior to going out. Don't hesitate on this one.
Treatments -MD Skincare by Dr. Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel

This is the best stuff out there. Expensive? yes, but worth every penny. Keeps my skin it tip-top shape. Many gals ask what I use to keep my skin so great and this is it. Also, love the tinted moisturizer. I have been using both for several yeaars now and don't plan to switch.
If you are a fan of mineral makeup this may suit you well. Much better than B.E. since there is less of a shine. Great easy application. I usually use Jane Iredale pressed powder base, but recently started using this and I find it is a lighter more natural look. I will re-purchase. I also, use the bronze & brighten as an eyeshadow and have been pleased with that.
Best, most reasonably priced skincare program out there. This has gotten my older skin looking youthful and glowing again. Believe me, I have tried everything out there - mostly department store brands and have spent a ton of bucks. Nothing has worked as well as this. I first got hooked on this with an HSN "try me". When it was time to order, I found a better deal Elysee Scientific. You can order the entire skincare program for about $60. A steal. Give it a try.
I have fallen in love with this foundation. I have been using tinted moisturizer for some time now, but decided to give this a try since I really like JI products. Well, it is awesome. You definitely have to get the right shade, though. I usually powder over this with my JI pressed powder in the same shade and it works well. I have oily skin and this is holding my shine down nicely. I don't know if this would work for dry skin, but it is great if you oil up throughout the day. I, also, think this will work well when summer hits and my skin becomes even more oily. I'm sold and plan re-purchase when this is gone. Price-wise it is comparable with other high end foundations. I do wish it had SPF in it, but the powder base does and I use sun screen prior to application so I'm covered for sun protection. .
This is the mineral make-up I always go back to. Being a make-up junkie, I always get the urge to try new stuff, however I always end up grabing for this and the new stuff usually ends up just sitting there. It does not make your skin all shiny like BE, goes on smoothly, lasts all day, covers all flaws without looking cakey, does not itch like some mineral powders. This is just wonderful make-up.
I'm on my third jar of this. I use it sparingly and it lasts me about 3 months. It makes my hair feel thicker, look shinier, and feel healthier immediately. I usually leave it on for a couple of hours and then wash it out good. I am using the Ojon shampoo, conditioner and foam thickener and my hair is looking the best it has in years - full and healthy. I love this stuff.
