Treatments -Perricone - N.V. Perricone Advanced Face Firming Activator
marba1 10/23/2012 11:39:00 AM
I sincerely think that most women don't know nothing about skin care effectiveness. Perricone's products are OVER PRICED and he doesn't have ONE SINGLE study TO PROOF the effectiveness of his products. NO ONE SINGLE study in the doctor's community and Journals. He is a great businessman since there are lots of stupid out there to buying his crap. I returned this fishy crap back to sephora after 1 single use.
Horrible smell, contains parabens. I had a facial using the machine and the esthetician used A DIRTY SPONGE FROM THE MACHINE on my face. She said that's the way it is. A DIRTY SPONGE, which is used by everybody. Horrible line, The only way these french companies, like Biologique Recherge , Carita and others become famous is because they make partnership with big hotel corporations. For example: Carita a line which didn't sell well in Sacks Fifth Avenue in the mid 90's, they became partner with Ritz Carton ( french as well) Hotel around the world. Carita's products are all full of parabens and they never published any study of the products. Carita's machine also like Biologique Recherche uses galvanic current delivered by a SPONGE, a sponge that is used in all clients. Nasty. A 5 minutes dirty sponge massage with the galvanic current WILL COST YOU $250 UP per facial. GOOGLE YOUTUBE AND CHECK FOR YOURSELF. These french companies are the ultimate RIP OFF, lol.

The WORST product not sold on drugstore or dollar stores ( I never buy from either of these places but I am assuming the bad product quality). Silicone only made my skin DRier and ugly. I hate, hate and hate this product ZERO is the right rating for dermalogica overal products.
I've used Retin-A micro for years. I only stopped using it about 2 months ago because I've discovered Environ Retinol 1 and Retinol 2. The reason I stopped using the RETIN-A micro is because I had an injury under my eye and Retin-A micro made the scar irritated and grown bigger. Also, my skin has become sensitive ( after many years using skin care with parabens and other toxic ingredients, I also can have eczema but rarely on my face ) and I wasn't able to use Retin-A more than 3 days in a row per week. My skin would become very peeling and sensitive and I couldn't not use it 4th days in a row. I am using Environ Retinol and I am in heaven..
Misc Beauty Tools -Clarisonic - Clarisonic PLUS Sonic Skin Cleansing System

Well here is my experience with clarisonic. I bought the Plus with 3 speed options. I only use it once a day and I use it with a sensitive skin brush. I like the fact it cleans my skin but I am worried about my facial muscles. Yes, I sincerely believe clarisonic is not good for the face facial muscles and it can cause skin laxity. Just pay attention in how you use clarisonic to avoid excessive skin laxity. Other than that, Clarisonic is a fine skin cleaning brush.
This mask is amazing! I have sensitive ( due to immune system) combination to acne prone skin and I use this mask everyday to clean my pores gently.. I highly recommend this as part of your ritual routine. I love this product so much that I have bought 6 masks tubes!!!!!
I love this toner!! I am super demanding when it comes to skin care because I am a licensed esthetician and I have seen all from doctors office, department stores, sephora, organic spa and wholefood brands.. I love Environ Toner and few other products + the DF machine facial is the best thing out there, of course I do love microcurrents from Bio-Therapeutic machine too.... Environ rocks!!!!! PS: If you're very oily skin USE THE STRONGER TONER, this one is mild and for sensitive skins..

Just another crap brand and product.
Treatments (Eye) -Dermalogica - Multivitamin power firm for eye and liparea
marba1 8/20/2012 2:38:00 PM
I wished I could give it A ZERO lipstick review.
A very week H.A. product which in reality makes NO difference if you use it or NOT. Better not since it makes NO difference and cost me money.
BAD products.. Made my skin sentive because of GLUTEN and parabens. Very bad product
Moisturizers -Dermalogica - Intensive Moisture Balance
marba1 8/20/2012 2:33:00 PM
I've tried all dermalogica products for anti-aging and sensitive skin. THEY ARE ALL BAD. Full of parabens, silicones and pepitides ( stimulators of colagens type of SCAR) Very bad products. This is my sincere experience with Dermalogica products.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Eminence Organics Rosehip Whip Moisturizer
marba1 5/11/2012 11:35:00 AM
As an esthetician since 1997, I have seen all. I had an open account with this company , Eminence and I was able to try all their products and professional masks and peels. The moisturizers are all water base and they don't work for me nor for my clients, even if you have combination skin. The light moisturizes from this line dry too quickly. The Eminence Serums are like a gel of sugary and a bit hard to dry / ABSORB on the skin.. It doesn't absorb at all, it dries on the skin and the skin looks like has a coat of sugar water on top of it. The cleanser: Eucalyptus,,, boy keep this out of your eyes otherwise you will call bad names while you're cleansing your face.. The worst burnout on my eyes I've ever had... I used to call the worst names because of the huge discomfort.... The professional products like: - AHA Fruit Pulp Treatment - Hungarian Herbal Mud Treatment - Paprika Herbal Treatment - Seven herb - Parsley cucumber treatment and many other professional and home masks CAN LIFT PIGMENTATION ( *** hyperpigmentation) ON THE SKIN. THAT HAPPENED TO ME AND 3 OTHER CLIENTS... WE DEVELOPED DARK SPOT on AREAS OF OUR SKIN. I had to use Obagy clear and blender for up to 1 year in order to clear my skin from the dark areas of my face. I even used Azalex acid to speed up the process. Azalex acid gave me a hypopigmentation :-( and the Obagy hydroquinone gave me free radicals that my skin started to loose elasticity. Seriously!!!!!! I STOPPED SELLING AND WORKING WITH THE WHOLE LINE.. For not waste the $1600.00 in products, I used the whole masks and treatment peel combination on my body..... boy I got a very RED SKIN for few hours. For the last, you call them in Canada and my sales representative/ even though they have one for each territory as well, gosh, the woman was so NASTY and RUDE.... Seriously.. She had the worst attitude I've ever found in the skin care business for the last 15 years.. This line is horrible!!!
I just received my MADE IN FRANCE, sealed package .15mm, .75mm, 1.5mm and 2mm dermarollers. I just used it on my skin. Even though I use the Retin-A micro, almost every night, I had no problem rolling the .15mm needle size dermaroller on my face. I loved and I know it will take some time for my skin to get used to it and move up to the 1.5mm since I will not use the 2mm on my face. I made my homework and I didn't buy MADE IN CHINA dermarollers because they use CHEAPEST STAINLESS STEEL on the rollers. I order made in FRANCE/ PATENT PENDING - SURGICAL STAINLESS STEEL rollers that arrived completely sealed and with a small spray to disinfect the needles.. I advice you guys to be careful with cheap stainless steels , DON'T TRUST WHEN chinese or korean company tell they rollers are made of surgical stainless steal and are sterilize and also be careful with needles longer than 2mm ON THE FACE......
I have been ordering CP Serum since 2000's but every time I receive the product I got excited until I put it on my skin. I have never finished a bottle because I soon stop using this serum. This time around I ordered because of a new scar but after the first using it, I didn't put on on the 2nd time. I don't think it will work. THE PRODUCT HAS A STRONG FRAGRANCE, may be why I don't care to keep using it, on top of the DARK BLUE COLOR, I think the color is artificial :-( MY SKIN PROTESTS WHEN THIS PRODUCT IS ON. I know Dr. Pickart have SEVERAL WEBSITES/DOMAINS but in his STUDIES I DON'T SEE PROOF OF SCAR REDUCTION, WRINKLE REDUCTION or anything.. NO PHOTOS OF BEFORE AND AFTER!!!!!!!! After 12 years of on and off on his CP SERUM, today, I believe Dr. Pickart SCAMS people / mostly internet WOMEN/USERS. I DON'T RECOMMEND IT. I DON'T BELIEVE IN HIS NEWEST STORY THAT*** "RETIN-A/RETINOIC ACID STIMULATES TGF-BETA 1- scar like collagen"** AS HE IS THE ONLY ONE IN THE INTERNET TO BE SPREADING THIS NEWS... I HAVE SEARCHED OVER AND OVER, AND HE AND PEOPLE WHO COPIES HIS DATA ARE THE ONLY ONES WRITING THIS TYPE OF CLAIMS... I URGE DR. PICKART TO PROOF HIS CLAIMS AND PRODUCE BEFORE AND AFTER IMAGES. HIS PRODUCTS ARE BEEN SOLD SINCE 1997 AND HE HAS ZERO BEFORE AND AFTER IMAGES FOR SCARS... HIS BEFORE AND AFTER IMAGES ARE FROM / IF THEY ARE TRUE/ A SEVERAL COMBINATION OF AHA + CP SERUM.. NOT FROM HIS COPPER ALONE, IF HIS BEFORE AND AFTER ARE FOR REAL.....
