I currently use this product once a day usually at night but will eventually use it under my sunscreen when my clinique resurfacing stuff runs out. It did sting a little when i put it on after my toner but it went away quickly. I have nice smooth skin every morning when i wake up so i am very satisfied with the product and price

I have been trying out Paulas brand for a few months now and i was excited when i had originally gotten a few samples of this solution, though it doesn't make me break out the cucumber smell is a little too much for me to bear. So in my personal case i would probably not purchase this again.
Sunscreen -Paula's Choice - Extra Care Non-Greasy Sunscreen SPF 45

I had bought a few samples of this sunscreen and then jumped on it when it was on sale for 40% off. It has been a very good buy! I'm pregnant right now so a good strong sunscreen was definitely in order to help avoid any skin colorations especially in AZ. I did notice that when i applied this over my daytime lotion i had quite an impressive sheen on my face but a little primer took care of that before putting on my face makeup for the day. I would definitely recommend it especially when it is on sale because you get a lot for your money.
Treatments -Paula's Choice - Super Antioxidant Concentrate

I bought this product on a great sale through Paulas website. I use this product at night after cleansing, toning, and AHA gel. It goes on very smoothly and wears well underneath my moisturizer. In the morning I use Clinique resurfacing serum followed by their repairweat laser focus, lotion, and sunscreen. I have used Paulas serum during the day as well and it does work wonderfully as a primer. Now i haven't gotten a chance to test it in the AZ sun but i will this year. I think its a comparable serum to the clinique repairwear which easily costs about 2x as much.
After reading all the positive reviews I stopped by my local Target and got it for $6.49 in sugar frosting and I LOVE it! I put it on the minute I got in my car, it glides onto your lips smoothly and surprisingly I really liked the light pink sheer coverage. I even love the pink cover over the lipstick. I have really never liked lipsticks until this one and will be picking up more colors as they go on sale!

I keep this color lip gloss right by my computer at work. I have it in the travel size. I love this color and just like what others have said there is no stickiness, sits well on my lips and keeps them hydrated. I haven't noticed the smell that much and would definitely purchase again.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Hemp Hand Protector
missixty5 1/10/2012 3:06:00 PM
I bought this when it was on sale at the body shop. I usually wear this at night, i am not too keen on the scent. It works well. My hands feel soft and not too greasy after application
I picked this up on sale at walgreens on a whim. The color is slightly darker than i hoped on my face. The coverage is medium sits on my face well, but it seems to get oily as the day goes on even with primer and a brushing of finishing powder. I would have kept using it but after a week of application my skin began breaking out which rarely happens at my age. The packaging i gave a 1 because unlike some of the ladies who purchased this with a pump mine was a twist off cap which meant you lost a lot of product when you were applying it on your face. I would not buy this again.
I got this system in #2. I never really got into clinique products until recently now that i hit my 30s. It seems to improve the texture of my skin and i have been using it consistently for the past 6-8 months. I do wish that they were always sold as a set on clinique's website but sometimes it is not available.
Treatments -Clinique - Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle and UV Damage Corrector

I have been using this product for about a month now day and night after my 3 step procedure. My skin feels alot smoother and my wrinkle on my forehead and the skin under my eyes seem smoother. I have combination skin and this product seems to be working well in the dry winter environment i am in, i gave it only a 3 because i am not sure if i am seeing a lot of improvement yet.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
missixty5 12/28/2011 4:01:00 PM
I love this moisturizer! I am a firm believer in this product, it makes my skin feel wonderful without weighing it down. I live in a very dry environment and my skin drinks this stuff up. I loved it so much I asked for the large pump size and it is even better than the tube. It came in a big plastic bottle with a pump. It is a little pricey but well worth looking younger than I am.
I purchased this from Target for $7 in the color sienna. I really love the fact that it is not sticky has a nice shine and seems to last a decent amount of time. I really like the applicator sponge versus a brush.
