Looooove. I use the Monoi Shampoo and use this as a conditioner daily. I leave it in while showering while I shave or whatever and then rinse it out. I swear my hair grows faster after using these products for a couple months now. Smells lovely and leaves my hair feeling soft and silky.
Cleansers -La Roche Posay - physiological micellar solution

I am so glad I discovered this product. I had been using Caudalie's micellar solution and was not a fan of the fragrance or crappy makeup removal. I've been using La Roche Posay products for years, and I was happy to find this in CVS. I have very dry, sensitive skin and I wanted to start using micellar solutions in the mornings instead of a full on cleanser because it tended to dry out my face. I use this on a cotton pad every morning, you don't need a lot, and it gives me a nice fresh feeling without stripping any oils away. This is also an AWESOME makeup remover and often removes makeup better than other products I've used. It does go a bit quick, and it's about $20 at CVS, but I think it is definitely worth the money. No sticky residue, just a nice clean feeling.
Not a fan. I have true sensitive skin which is also dry, and this stuff is really unimpressive for sensitive skin. It made me eyes itch and burn, and it also stunk at taking eye makeup off. I will probably never try this brand again.
Lotions/ Creams -Trader Joe's - Coconut Body Butter

Saw this was new at TJoe's and picked it up. Smells more like coconut frosting with something else mixed in...it's not bad though. Quite moisturizing but I recommend slathering this on right out of the shower because if you wait too long it's hard to blend in with your skin. I think it is definitely worth it for the price.
Shampoo -Alterna - Caviar Anti-Aging Moisture Shampoo

I work for a beauty retailer so I got this shampoo and the matching condition as gratis. Glad I did because if I actually paid 32 each for these..I would've cried. First couple times , I loved using this stuff. My hair was super soft and shiny. However, I feel that my hair is now drier than before even after using moisturizing hair masks. I have normal, straight/wavy hair that is past my shoulders. I do love the packaging but honestly this is not worth the money. I will go back to my carol's daughter smoothing shampoo that is half the price and works much better.
Treatments -La Roche Posay - Effaclar Pore-Refining Anti-Aging Serum

I have sensitive, dry, acne prone skin. This keeps my acne at bay and minimizes my acne scars. I LOVE it. It is a bit pricey at 40 dollars, but you literally need a drop or two every time you use it. It will last a very long time, I have had it for at least a month and it looks barely used. I used it every night before bedtime. It has helped my acne so much and does not irritate my skin. Love this brand.
This is one of the best dry shampoo's I have ever used. My old hairdresser told me about this stuff years ago and I have been using it every morning since (I shower at night). The best way to use it is with a blowdryer because of the white residue it leaves behind. I spray the sides of my hair and my bangs, let it sit for a couple minutes, then brush and blowdry it out. It gets rid of the grease, volumizes my hair, and leaves it super clean looking. For 8 bucks, can you beat that? I work at a retailer that sells multiple dry shampoo's for over 20 bucks a pop and I laugh at the people who buy them. This stuff is the bomb, and I will never switch. My favorite scent is the can with brown coloring in it, it's a little coconut-y scent. The fresh one is good too. I hope they never ever stop making this.
I have been using this as my regular scent for probably over 3 years now. Love it, have never smelled anything like it when I got it. It isn't obnoxious and I always go back to it. Smells fantastic.
I love this stuff as well. I have the 24 hour moisturizer and this stuff makes my skin feel great and not break out. I use this day and night, I never leave it on because I'm not very comfortable with that. The woman at Sephora told me I could leave it on but I think that would make people break out. It cleans my dry, sensitive skin and does not irritate it whatsoever...which usually never happens. Great product.
I love this product! I decided to switch up my skincare because I was using the ultra-calming Aveeno line and I got a huge giftcard to Sephora. I also use the 3 in 1 milk protein cleanser and this afterwards. I love the smell of rose and my dry patches are completely gone, and my skin is really sensitive and dry so I am pretty impressed. I like using a jar for moisturizers so that doesn't really bother me. I did so much research on here so find stuff that would work for my skin and I'm so glad I found Korres. I does not even make my skin break out. A bit pricey but a good splurge if you wanna have soft, good smelling skin.
I have very fair, sensitive skin and I received a Macy's giftcard and decided to get some foundation. I was using BE but because of my dry patches from the winter, it wasn't covering anything very well. I bought this foundation because Clinique doesn't bother my skin but I was very disappointed in this. The coverage was pretty good even though it did not last all day. After about a week or so, I noticed that my skin did not feel the same. It became bumpy and my skin is usually very very soft. It felt like my skin changed, I don't know, so I did the process of elimination and discovered that this foundation was the problem. A shame because the coverage was good but I guess it has something weird in it. Anyway I'm gonna try to return it so I can use my giftcard on something that works.
