Moisturizers - Garnier - Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream

I bought this when I was travelling for work and realized that I left my expensive cream at home.
This was inexpensive and sounded promising.
Well this was just horrible.
This burned. Just stung like crazy. I thought it might be temporary. No such luck. Felt just like a very bad sunburn.
I washed it off to get relief.
Not sure if it’s the fact that I use retin A or if …

I was searching for a cheaper alternative to the Kiehls exfoliator , which I adore. I just hated the crazy price.
This is it !! Half the price and just as good. It’s a very harsh exfoliator for anyone with sensitive skin - luckily I don’t fall into that category.
It’s got a very lovely scent and seriously takes every last bit of dead skin off.
This is absolutely my new HG of …

THIS!!! If you have fine patches of facial hair, or have upper lip hair, this cannot be beat . It’s gentle, super easy to use, removes the hair quickly, and is small for easy travel.
I’ve waxed. I’ve used cream hair removal. This is far easier and gentler with the same results. If I lost this , I would buy it again and again. It’s that good.

The price is low , it’s …

I love skinceuticals retinol but have always been reluctant to buy this because of the price. With such a high price I figured it couldn’t do enough to my skin to be worth it.
I was wrong. This is HG for me.
I use very little, and put it all over my face including my eyelids. That’s where the difference has been just incredible which was surprising to me. My eyelids were getting …

I am always looking for a great moisturizer to alleviate retin A dryness. For some reason , a lot start off good but quit working. It must be my skin ? I have never purchased any IT cosmetics , but this cream has strong reviews , so I figured I would give it a try.
This cream is thick, non greasy , absorbs well, and actually makes my skin look good. I am not crazy about fragrance in my …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Retin A Cream

5.0

4 months ago

I was reluctant to go the Retin A route to be honest. I had used skinceuticals retinol 1 % for over a decade and still often experienced flaking. Wasn’t sure how bad the peeling would be with Retin A and I was worried. However I knew that Retin A could do more for my skin that retinol so I took the plunge.
I used a .05 very very sparingly on only problem spots at first and still experienced …

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Liquid Blush

As the winter weather continued to dry out my skin , I turned to this liquid blush hoping to look fresh again , and not ‘ chalky ‘. I bought this in dolce vita and it is a beautiful blush. It’s extremely pigmented so seriously half a pump does both cheeks. This is great for product longevity , but a bit difficult to use. The consistency is gel like , but it does melt into the skin and cause a ‘ …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - shu uemura - Eyelash Curler

I have used an eyelash curler for over 20 years. Revlon, Loreal etc. Whichever one was in the drug store aisle. I didn't actually understand what the hype was over this one because I assumed they were all the same. I was wrong.

This is a bit of a different shape, making it extremely effective and somehow easier to use. I find it much easier to get close to my base line, and get …

I have crap nails. They have ridges. They snap easily. They are dry and just nasty. I have spent a fortune for years on gel nails with shellac but I am tough on nails and the upkeep was horrendous, time consuming and expensive.
I turned to nail polish. Essie. OPI. You name it I tried it. All the same. On me , streaky. Easily chipped.
This nail polish went on like a dream and stayed …

Eye Makeup Remover - Marcelle - Instant eyemakeup remover oil free

I bought this because my usual product was out of stock. Just DONT.
Horrible. My eyes burned. The skin around my eyes dried out within minutes. My makeup barely came off. It doesn’t say that it contains alcohol , but it sure must contain something similar. This stuff is crap. I threw it out.
