The texture is perfect, smooth and feather light. But the scent could be better.
Treatments -Nivea - Nivea Multiple Results All In One Anti-Aging Treatment
shido 8/20/2005 1:08:00 PM
Although it's called Anti-aging treatment, it is indeed an anti-aging moisturizer. I use it as a night cream and it works very well for my normal to dry skin. I love everything about it--the package, the texture and the scent. It is not as greasy as some other Nivea creams, not heavily scented and the package is hygienical. After searching around and switching between diffrent brands, I can see myself sticking to this one for quite a while.
Cleansers -Phisoderm - Phisoderm Deep Cleaning Cleanser
shido 4/29/2005 3:13:00 AM
Wow, I think I've found my HG cleanser! I have normal to dry skin and even drier in colder months. I have been searching the right facial cleanser for quite some time. I like something cleanses well(takes off makeup well)and doesn't dry out my skin. I prefer a foaming cleanser over a non-foaming one. This one meets all my requirements! It has white milky texture that foams up when you rub it with water, smells nice and rinses clean. I am totally satisfied. My only complain is it's kinda hard to find in my area, especially the one for normal to dry skin. I hope they will never discontinue this product! Edit: Don't get this cleanser into your eyes, it hurts badly.
Moisturizers -Ulta - Extremely Gentle Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin SPF 15

I am so glad that I explored this moisturizer from a local ULTA store. I have used this for a couple of weeks and I think that I've found my HG day lotion with SPF. It is a light unscented creamy lotion that goes on smoothly. It has both UVA and UVB sunscreen, as zinc oxide is one of the active ingredients. This gentle lotion moisturizes my skin nicely without any irritation and greasiness. The pacakge is nice too---cute glass pump bottle! It's a little expensive than drugstore products but well worth it I think.
Gels/Soaps -Avalon Organics Botanicals - Hand soap-lemon

I like the idea of using organic detergent in the kitchen. I am very satisfied with this gel. It has a nice real lemon scent, a bunch of natural organic nurishing ingredients and effective cleansing agents. Package is nice too. I like the convenient pump bottle. I will keep buying for sure.
Absolutely a nice gentle cleanser! It is very gentle, takes off makeup(not completely, but not much left). For 3 bucks in Walmart, you get 10oz of it in a convenient pump bottle. I will keep buying it to use in the morning! I hope they will never discontinue it unless they come up with something similar or even better, otherwise I have to rush to Walmart to stock them up. :-)
Cleansers -St. Ives - Make-up Remover & Facial Cleanser with soothing chamomile
shido 1/9/2005 2:18:00 AM
I am writing a review for the makeup remover and facial cleanser in one. It is almost white colored very lightly scented creamy non foaming cleanser in a lovely yellow tube. I apply it directly on my face without water and it takes off makeup nicely. It is easily rinsed off with warm water and leave my face soft without greasy after feel. For $2.99, you can't beat the price!
Treatments (Eye) -L'Oreal - Dermo Expertise RevitaLift Eye
shido 1/5/2005 2:53:00 AM
I'd say this is a very nice eye cream. It comes in a cute little glass jar, has a nice consistancy and fragrance free. It moisturizes my under eye area very well without being greasy. I've tried quite a few eye creams from drugstore to department store, and I feel this is one of the nicest.
Cleansers -Ponds - Pond's Cleansing Lotion and Moisturizer All In One
shido 1/3/2005 6:12:00 PM
I really don't care for this cleanser. It's a thick white cream with annoying fragrance.It doesn't rinse clean and left a greasy film on my face. The package is convenient, that's about it!
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Papaya Body Butter
shido 1/2/2005 6:25:00 PM
It smells so good! Very creamy in texture and is easy to apply. I have normal to dry skin, and this one moisturizes very well on even the driest part of my skin. I love it so much that I will pretty much buy it again.
I really like this mask! It has a nice light rose scent and the color is sort of beige. I also used their Mint Julep mask before. I prefer this one over the Mint Julep one. This mask made my face soft, clean and refreshed, very comfortable. The mint one acturally burned my face. This mask dries nicely and is very easy to be removed. All in all, a very good investment for my money, thumbs up!
A great cleanser for dry to normal skins! It has a lotion texture which doesn't lather, rinses clean without drying out my face. I noticed that for me this cleanser runs out quicker than those foaming cleansers. But I guess that happens to all the non-foaming cleanser. Edit: Although this cleanser is very gentle and comfort, it's really poor in taking off makeup. I've found better ones.
Mascara -Maybelline - Sky High Curves Extreme Length and Curl [DISCONTINUED]
shido 11/2/2004 1:15:00 AM
It did curl my lash and it didn't smudge, but it was somewhat flaky. It kinda irritates my eyes.
Are we talking about the same thing? The CG smoothers stick concealer? Cause the one I'm using goes on smoothly and is not drying at all. The coverage is rather sheer though but seems buildable. I got one in light and it's a little too pink for under eye circle. I'll probably try the neutralizer next time.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 30
shido 10/10/2004 12:16:00 AM
I am using the untinted version. It's more of a cream than a lotion. I think it's kinda greasy and makes my face shiny all day. I have combination skin now. I will save it for winter and see how it works.
