Makeupalley has turned me onto some awesome products so I expected with all of the rave reviews this would be something wonderful. Sadly, not only did it do anything good for me - my hair is gross afterward - dry and matte and just yuck. For the price I paid, I couldn’t bear to just throw it out so I’ve pulled it out a few different times hoping for a different result. Never got it. Finally threw …Read more

Lip Treatments - LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask

The only thing that keeps my lips soft and moist during the cold, dry Midwest winters. A couple of weeks ago my lips were dry and chapped and I remembered I had this. Slapped it on overnight and woke up to absolutely healed lips. It’s light enough that it even feels fine to wear through the day, but heavy enough that it doesn’t go anywhere as it works while you sleep. Holy grail lip treatment.

My holy grail night cream for dry winter months. This stuff is AMAZING. I am mid-forties with combination skin. It gets super dry in the winter and oily in the summer. Some fine lines around my eyes but overall my skin is pretty decent. I use this cream through the winter and love love love love it. It hydrates of course, but even better, it leaves my skin soft and glowing. I wish I could use it …Read more

This stuff is the bomb diggity! I've been using it for about a year on my feet. Once a week or so is plenty to keep them soft and smooth. It absorbs right in with no greasiness and smells yummy.

I discovered a new use for it the other day when I was traveling. I had to fly to a meeting and earlier in the week I had tried a new face mask that broke me out in a rash and left my …

May/11/2017

After all of the great reviews, I wanted to love this mask. I love masks and am a bit of a mask junkie. I literally have 25-30 masks that I rotate through a couple of times a week. This felt great going on ... nice and creamy and just lovely. It felt fine though when I rinsed it off my skin was bright red. This is not unusual after I mask so I didn't worry too much and the next morning the …Read more

I just want to address a comment made below regarding the Lavender Extract (LE) in this product. It certainly made me hesitate, despite the really great reviews for this product, so I looked into this a little further. While it is true that LE (or rather, linalool acid, a component of the LE) can be considered cytotoxic, this was found to be an issue in synthetic linalool acid, NOT naturally …Read more

I can't say enough good things about honey. Honey has been used for thousands of years as an antibacterial agent. When my son was growing up, whenever he had a cut or an infection, I would clean it, spread honey on it, cover it with a bandage, and without fail it would heal quickly and easily. (Fun fact: a study published a couple of years ago in JAMA showed honey was EQUAL to chemical …Read more

Sep/04/2012

This was pretty much the most horrible eye product I've ever used. It dried out my eye area, and caused it to burn red. It hurt and looked terrible. I have pretty tough skin that usually reacts pretty well to whatever I throw at it, acids or what-have-you even in the eye area, just so long as I go slow and pay attention, but this was just awful. No redeeming value whatsoever, and it was …Read more

I'm SOO mad at myself!! Why, oh why, have I been waxing for so many years when I could have been using this?? Seriously. I started off with the hair removal cream for face, and fell in love. I applied a thick layer to the peach fuzz on my face and chin, waited 7 minutes, and was completely smooth! I didn't feel a thing until I wiped it off, then was red and burned slightly, so applied …Read more

I have used this for years and can honestly say I would go without food rather than go without this!! Seriously. I have tried all kinds of different brands, and nothing makes my hair as deliciously soft, healthy, and amazing as Nioxin 7. My hair is colored and highlighted, thick, coarse, and has a tendency to get very dry.This stuff makes it amazing!!! Seriously. A few times I have run out and …Read more
