All the other positive posts say it all! I love it!
Cleansers -Josie Maran Cosmetics - Argan Cleansing Oil

My favorite oil cleanser is by NUDE cosmetics. I decided to try this one because I love the Argan oil for my face. This has the consistency of olive oil and is a bit tacky to the touch. The smell is ok. However....DO NOT get it near your mouth. The taste is horrifying. Remember when you were a kid and your mom would spray you down with OFF BUGSPRAY before you went out to play and some inevitibly got in your mouth? EEEWWWW. It successfully removes my makeup and leaves my skin soft. I am extremely dry and it feels good. I won't repurchase though, I will go back to NUDE Oil Cleanser.
Skincare - Face -Skinceuticals - SkinCeuticals Eye Balm

I have very dry skin and am always searching for a cream that will allow my concealer to look smooth and not cakey. I believe I have found it. What I love is when I wake up in the morning my under eye area is still super soft. Everything that goes on my face is from Skinceuticals. It is worth the money for me.
First let me say that I received this as a sample. I would never pay this price! I first noticed that it smelled really familiar. I read the ingredients and one of them is limonene. This is used in DEGREASERS! I now new why it was a familiar scent, it is under my kitchen sink!
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Extase Flash Plumping Mascara

I hated DiorShow and was reluctant to try this one. I love it, however! The formula is good, has "good stuff" for the health of your lashes. While it does have staying power, I wouldn't say it is difficult to remove. I use Nude oil cleanser all over and with really warm water this mascara comes off pretty easy. No flaking while wearing it and my average lashes look great.
Treatments (Eye) -Skinceuticals - A.G.E Eye Complex

My esthetician told me this would help with firming the eye area and diminish the crepiness. She was so right! Expensive but I love it!
Having dry skin I have always shyed away from a "toner" because I thought they were nothing but alcohol. This toner has hyaluronic acid in it and actually helps my other products work better. I never realized how much makeup I wasn't removing with my cleanser! YUK! Love this stuff!
Moisturizers -Skinceuticals - REnew Overnight Cream for normal to Dry skin

My skin has always loved AHA's and this cream leaves my skin super smooth. I am prone to flakiness and this has helped a great deal. The flakes got a little worse at first but with continued use it is a lot better.
I have never used a vitamin C serum before. I am very pleased thus far (about 3 weeks). Sun spots starting to fade and redness in my cheeks GONE!
I never understood the difference between a hydrator and a moisturizer. I get it now! This stuff really helps my dry skin!
Actually received a sample tube of this, did not buy. Glad I didn't buy it. It does not lengthen or thicken. Maybe it would be ok if you curled your lashes first?? I will stick with my EA ceramide treatment mascara.
I have been wanting to try teal eyeliner on my blue eyes. I picked this up at my local drug store for $1.99. I figured I would try the color before I paid $17 for my usual Urban Decay 24/7 liner. The color is great, the quality is awful! I may as well be using a crayola crayon it is so hard and waxy. No wonder they are so dirt cheap. You get what you pay for.
I have extremely thick, coarse and dry hair that is naturally wavy. After I towel dry, I rub about 2 teaspoons of this serum between my hands and evenly distribute through out my hair then blow dry. It leaves it incredibly soft! Smell isn't heavenly but the feel of my hair is.
This is great protection for all you flat iron junkies. Spray you hair after it is dry and before you flat iron.
Moisturizers -Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

I tend to be a department store MU counter and Sephora junkie. I swore I would bever buy my skincare at the drugstore. Then for some reason I decided on a whim to try this. I love it! My skin has definitely smoothed out. I have never had problems with blemishes and my pores are tiny. At night I still use an eye cream with retinoids and vitamins C and E first. I can't believe I love an Olay product! Who'd a thunk it?
