So far my favorite from this line. It's very thick so it takes a little working but it does a good job moisture wise, can't really see any whitening/brightening effects yet. I like to slather on a thick layer before I go to bed like a sleeping mask and in the morning my skin is pleasantly plump.
This Product is part of Kose's organic line. Like the serum from the same line, it left my skin feeling sticky. This could be due to the fact that i bought this in Rich which is for dryer skin as opposed to the Light. Does a good job. for the price.
This product is part of Kose's organic line. It was ok. It left my skin feeling sticky as if it never really absorbed. Does a decent job for it's price and smells amazing. Bought on sasa.
Really doesn't do that great of a job. like a previous review, i still have remnants of eye makeup after i use this. Also i've been getting small bumps and pimples which is another reason i question this product's cleaning power. My skin does feel soft after i rinse it off though. Also has a noticeable alcohol smell.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock spf 55

Finally, a drugstore liquid face sunscreen with high SPF. Goes on smoothly and leaves no streaks. Best facial sunscreen I've tried so far.
I was not impressed. Smelled great, but when i put it on my face it was soooooooo greasy. I looked like I had been in the sun all day and neglected to wipe my face. Won't purchase again.
Great all natural option! I love Q10 products, they always work well for me. Moisturizing without being greasy and comes in a convenient pump. Also great price!
Gels/Soaps -Burt's Bees - Radiance Exfoilating Body Wash

I'm surprised at the poor reviews! I love the smell of this, in fact my favorite part is how it leaves a very faint sweet smell on my skin. Yes it's very runny and the exfoliating beads don't seem to do much but that's what loofah's are for right?
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

Great stuff! I brought a tube to work and now all the girls at work have it! It moisturizes without being greasy, and it smells great! Very expensive for hand cream but does a great job. Also not as perfumed as other hand creams that i've used in the past. Will definitely buy again!
Moisturizers -Eucerin - Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive Skin Creme

A couple years ago, I had to work outside everyday from sun up to sun down all summer. I used heavy spf during the day and this product at night to repair and by the end of summer my skin had no visible damage while everyone else seemed to aquire a few lines and dry spots. I love this stuff. Smells and looks like butter, but apparently the yellow color is the q10. Great product, and on top of everything it's cheap.
I love my dermatologist for prescribing this to me! When I went to see her, i had acne and was concerned about premature lines. She told me that this product helps promote skin turn over, which means old skin is shed at a better rate and thus fine lines reduced and pores unclogged. When I use this product I feel brave enough to go out without foundation! (gasp!)
Powder -Clinique - Superbalanced powder makeup (spf 15) [DISCONTINUED]
pepper1025 4/6/2011 10:05:00 PM
A great powder foundation with min to med coverage. Love the dispenser, keeps every thing sanitary and it has spf! The brush is horrendous, but who uses it anyway? It's a little pricey for Clinique but again it's a great product. More coverage would make it better but i guess theres only so much you can ask of a powder.
Not bad, but a little on the thick side. I have oily skin so creme moisturizers are not my favorite but i decided to try this anyway due to the rave reviews on this site. The first week was amazing! My skin was bright and super supple in the morning, but as i went further and further into the jar, the results started to diminish. Probably won't buy again.
Skincare - Face -Dr. Bronner's - Dr.Bronners Tea Tree Soap
pepper1025 4/6/2011 8:30:00 PM
Not a bad product but by no means excellent for me. I used this for my face and a mild form of backne. I also use the lavender scent for laundry lol. Good for laundry, good for body, just ok for face, mainly because it's a little strong (drying) and in no way do i have sensitive skin. I will probably finish the bottle, but there are other (better) tea tree products out there.
I love this!! I use it everyday and it gives me such a cute tint on my cheeks that last at least half a day (i have oily skin or else i suspect it would last all day). I also like it on my lips but it doesn't seem to last as long as the cheeks. Can be a little drying on the lips but that's normal for stains, i just wait a few min for the color to settle in and swipe on some lip balm. Great spring/summer color!
