Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Luzern Laboratories La Defense SPF30

I was on a cruise a couple years ago, and didn't think ahead that I might need a little tube of physical sunscreen to carry around for reapplication on my face. The reason? Because sebum pouring out of my oily T-zone basically dissolved my initial application of sunscreen, and I was getting burned on just my nose and forehead. In desperation, I went to the ship spa and asked about their …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Alpha Skin Care - Alpha Skin Care 10 AHA Essential Renewal Gel

4.0

fromAshaP

10 months ago

I am a huge fan of Alpha Skin Care's AHA products. I wanted to try this gel, even though I am very satisfied with another of their products, the AHA 12% Enhanced Revitalizing Skin Cream. Like all the AHA products from this company, the gel was highly effective at exfoliating, showing tangible improvement in skin texture in just one usage. It worked well on face or body, and its thin …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Eucerin - Dry Skin Therapy Calming Creme

10 months ago

Eucerin Skin Calming Creme was my go-to for daily use on very dry areas of my body during the winter months. For many years, it was the only thing that soothed my itchy skin, and kept it moisturized for at least 24 hours. I think as I have aged, my skin has become progressively more dry, so even this superstar staple doesn't always cut it for the driest winter days. Even the …Read more

Lip Treatments - Kiehl's - Lip Balm #1

fromAshaP

10 months ago

I've been a long time user of Kiehl's lip balm until recently. That is mostly because there wasn't much to choose from back in the day when Carmex, Chap Stick, Blistex and Vaseline were the primary choices. Among those listed, Kiehl's was an absolute god-send, even though it contains a huge proportion of petrolatum (aka Vaseline). I think the non-petrolatum …Read more

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Eco Lips - Mongo Kiss Organic Lip Balm (all)

I'm a die hard Badger lip balm user, but it is sometimes hard to find in the store. I saw Mongo Kiss at the drug store, so I bought it with the hopes of having a Badger alternative if I ever get caught short. Mongo Kiss did not disappoint--it comes in a beefy twist up tube, larger than Chap Stick, but still small enough to fit in a pocket or purse. The texture is extremely smooth--it applies …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Estée Lauder - Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex [DISCONTINUED/REFORMULATED]

10 months ago

This is a review for the reformulated version. I got a generous sample sized jar in a gift set with the regular sized ANR and a large sample of Revitalizing Supreme night cream. The gift set is called "Multiple Signs of Aging", for what its worth. Even though I was a long time occasional user of ANR, the products don't really work well with my skin anymore. This night eye cream is …Read more

Pressed Powders - L'Oreal Paris - Paris Infallible Pro-Matte 16HR Powder

10 months ago

I've been using L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte 16 Hour Powder for several years. I'm not very adventurous when it comes to face powders, because even though it would seem they are all pretty much the same, they just are not. I chose L'Oreal based on glowing reviews, and stuck with the product because it was great at absorbing oil and has a good color range to fit my complexion …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes (Hydrating)

2.0
Created with Sketch.
fromAshaP

10 months ago

I received a sample of these wipes with purchase of another Neutrogena product. Typically Neutrogena is hit or miss with me, and unfortunately, these cleansing towelettes were a miss. They contain fragrance, and though they removed makeup quite readily, I found them to be irritating--I had irritation from the product itself, and irritation from rubbing the cloth on my face. They are very …Read more

Cleansers - Olay - Gentle Clean Foaming Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.
fromAshaP

10 months ago

I recently tried both Olay Gentle Clean Foaming Cleanser and Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash, and they are quite similar, except that the Olay tends to be less drying. The Olay formula is very simple, non-fussy and basic, with no dyes or fragrances added. The product is a thin pearlescent liquid which foams with the addition of water. I found it to be relatively good at cleansing without …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Acure Organics - 100% Wildcrafted Marula Oil

5.0

fromAshaP

10 months ago

I am not a long time user of facial oils because I've always had trouble figuring out how to use them with my combination oily / dry skin, so I preface this review with the disclaimer that Acure Marula oil is the only face oil I've used with any regularity. So far, I'm pretty happy with it. I was unable to use it straight on skin without it being super greasy, even with the …Read more
