Bought this because of the good reviews - glad I did. I wasn't expecting anything special from a toner, but this does do wonders. Noticed a difference within the first 3 days. My skin was soft, smooth and moisturized. I use this along with La Mer Cream/Gel. It's the perfect combination.
Best primer for oily skin - also, if you want your makeup to last all day and night. Just a small drop on entire face and your makeup will last 12 hours.
Mascara -Christian Dior - DiorShow Mascara Waterproof

This has to be the worst "waterproof" mascara I've tried! The regular DiorShow mascara didn't run as much as the waterproof version did! I put it on to get through a yoga class - not Bikrum, just a regular 60 minute easy breezy yoga class - when I got out, this stuff was smeared all under my eyes - I went back to the regular Diorshow mascara after that - it held up quite nicely.
I use this once a week for my thin, color treated hair and LOVE it - you will not find a better deep conditioner for the price. For the record, I use Pureology shampoo, conditioner and reconstructor. This is still my go to product when I need my hair to look and feel soft and shiny.
The best brush - I use with my Mac studio fix powder - amazing! I will purchase again.
Lip Treatments -Fusion Beauty - LipFusion Lip Plumping Gloss
suzieo123 7/21/2010 7:01:00 PM
Love this stuff - not for the lip plumping effect as I do not see it - my lips are moisturized, soft and it really does last all day. I always have one of these in my bag - not a lipstick person - just balms and glosses. This is one of my favorites.
Another one of my Holy Grail products. I use this once a week and is by far the best scrub on the market. It is expensive, but lasts 6 months or more. I don't like the packaging as it's bulky and the lid is difficult to screw back on - if you don't have the lid on tight, it will dry out. Also, not good for travel - too bulky.
I'm on my 2nd tub of this stuff - Love the fact that there is no scent and leaves my skin soft, smooth and moisturized. A staple in my bathroom. Just for reference, I do not use this on my face - body only.
Loose Powders -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Loose Powder

Does not compare to my Cle De Peau loose powder.
Scrubs -Olay - Regenerist Microdermabrasion and Peel Kit
suzieo123 7/21/2010 6:42:00 PM
I use this on my hands and legs once a week. I get weekly microdermabrasions and get an Epicuren Enzyme facial once a month. This works great to soften the spots and lines on my hands and really makes my legs super soft.
When I am out of Dr.Brandt Microdermabrasion I go to my old stand by - St. Ives Scrub. Also use it when I travel as it's easier to carry. Will always have as my stand by face scrub
Not water resistant, not good coverage and sinks into your wrinkles around and under your eyes...will not purchase again.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Ok - so I must admit I did try this as a makeup remover and body scrub / oil. It actually works for the body and is dirt cheap. If you can get past the smell, it's great. You can also throw in a few vanilla beans to help with the smell - let them soak for a few days.
Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

Holy Grail ! I have this is black, blue and purple - tried ALL mascaras and this one by far is the best - will never change
Liquid -Laura Mercier - Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation
suzieo123 7/21/2010 6:20:00 PM
I use this in Sunny Beige with Cle De Peau concealer and loose powder for full and perfect coverage. I get the most compliments on my skin when I wear this combination and it lasts all day. I do switch to Mac Studio Fix powder in the summer for light coverage.
