My aesthetician told me these were the best she's tried a few years ago and I've been using these ever since. In the summer, I have to use at least 2 per day and in winter, once per day. I'm loving it!
Treatments -Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion Exfoliant

I've been using this over 6 months now and still on that first bottle. For some reason I thought I ordered the liquid one, but was happy with the lotion one since winter was coming around. I used this morning and night for about a month and my skin was purging all the yucky stuff. I wanted to stop but forced myself to continue using it. I'm glad I stuck to it because after that first month, my pores are less noticeable and I have fewer breakouts. I now use it once a day to maintain my pores and I still have about half the bottle still. I have a sample of the gel that I've been meaning to try so that I could use for the warmer weather. I'll have to see how that goes.
BB Cream -Skinfood - Peach Sake Pore BB Cream SPF20 PA+ (Shade 02)

This was the first BB cream I purchased. I got it in Melbourne for $20AUD. I'm NC20 and the colour was ok. There are better ones out there. I just finished the SKIN79 Super+ Beblesh Balm BB Cream Triple Function ( Pink Label ) and loved it. It has better coverage.
I bought the smaller version for around $15CAD (it cost around $30CAD for the larger one). It lasted about 2 1/2 months. I would use one pump for my entire face. I'm NC20 with combo/dry skin and I needed to use a separate moisturizer beforehand because this product is suited more for combo/oily skin, which I had in the summer. The colour seemed to whiten me out, but that was fixed with a bit of powder. I feel that it helped even out my skin and made it brighter. I do wish that the SPF was higher.
I have this in Ruby Red and love it!!! It's creamy, opaque and lasts quite a long time.
I absolutely love the colour!!! And the packaging is just an added bonus :) Great pigment!
The colours are really nice and pigmented! I have been using the bottom two right colours as a neutral look, which looks nice :) I love the idea that the packaging is vegan, but the art scars me a little - oh well! I got it in Canada at Sephora which costs $44, but I'm lucky I had the $15 off coupon I got from their emails. I don't really reach for this a lot since I have a lot of other eyeshadows, but it should come in handy when I travel.
I just bought this at a sale in the "To The Beach" packaging and the payoff is great on it. I really like the colour and the way it look!!! Definitely one to have in your collection :)
I love the smell of this! It makes me feels womanly. Also, since it's by Yves Rocher, you either earns points or you can get this free with your points, which is what I did :)
Cleansers -La Roche Posay - Biomedic Purifying Cleanser

This was recommended by my dermatologist and yea!!! I wash with it for about a minute and my skin feels sooooo soft! I got it in a package so I don't know what it costs, but it was pricey. However, my dermatologist said that it should last 6 months, so it evens out.
Moisturizers -La Roche Posay - Toleriane Soothing Protective Light Facial Fluid

Very light and moisturizers very well. Skin feels nice.
No clumps, good colour build-up. Feels funny with all those spikes. Worth the purchase!
I like this product! I have it in Translucent and it sets nicely for me. The colour I see is pretty much the colour that goes on. My skin feels soft after putting this on...love that! I like the pouch it comes in too.
I got this in Light Medium and the colour works great for me. It's not heavy and blends nicely. Got this on sale too, otherwise I probably wouldn't have purchased it.
Lotions/ Creams -Olay - Quench Therapy Skin Repair Concentrate

I enjoyed the smell. It hydrated nicely. I don't know if it comes in any other packaging, but I got mine in a tube. The only bad point is when you're towards the end of the tube and it's just so hard to get the product out. I just bought the lotion in a bottle with a pump, but realized it was the concentrate one. It still hydrates but for winter, the concentrate one would be better. Plus I see some sparkles in the lotion one.
