This is a very nice cleanser for the hot sticky sweaty summer months. My 66 year old skin tends to get more oily during the summer season. I also use a 50 spf non chemical sunscreen make up that is not easily removed.

My usual make up remover was not getting everything off. Cleansing oil got all the stuff off my face, but left me feeling greasy & not clean. Mary Cohr to the …

Laura Mercier Tightline Eye Liner in Bleu Marine & Laura Mercier Flatline Brush

I've been looking for a cake eye liner in blue since the '60's. I think I've finally found one in this product.

The blue is a navy blue. It seems to enhance my blue eyes and the whites actually seem whiter.

I have sensitive eyes and they can be a bit moist …

L'Air du Temps
I always return to this one. A lovely fresh, light oriental/floral fragrance. A true classic that is still relevant in today's world.

HYDRA No. 1 Serum with Hyaluronic Acid
This serum and its mate, the creme, have saved my skin this winter. The older I become, the less natural oil my skin produces and this winter has really taken a toll. Parched, burning & red. The aesthetician recommended this regime of the serum & creme. My skin responded immediately. I've been using the serum followed by the creme …

HYDRA No. 1 CREME (Dry or Sensitive Skin)

This is the mate to the Hydra No. 1 Serum. This creme is applied after cleansing and after applying the serum, in the morning & before bedtime. The combination of the serum & creme has fixed my winter burned skin that was a result of..too cold outside...too hot/dry inside. I've been using these 2 Yon Ka products for a …

Eyes - IT Cosmetics - Tightline Full Lash Length Black Mascara Primer

This is a very nice waterproof mascara. It covers well and the super skinny brush allows me to get all the way to the base of my eyelashes. It doesn't irritate and lasts till removed...no raccoon eyes. Being a waterproof mascara, it is a bit difficult to remove. Although I said I would buy this mascara again, I really am not sure as I am not a fan of waterproof eye makeup.

Jan/19/2014

The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler works very well without making my eyelashes look as though they've been crimped. Nice smooth curved curl. It must have something to do with the curved silicone pad. I also like the fact there was no pinching of my eyelids. This eyelash curler does exactly what it is supposed to do if you follow the directions and the curl lasts all day even without out …Read more

Jan/19/2014

Water proof mascara is sooooo hard to remove. Finding a product that will remove it is soooo hard to find. Most of the eye makeup removers that remove waterproof mascara are pretty miserable. They either do nothing, or smear the make up all over. All of the eye make up removers made to remove waterproof mascara sting my eyes for hours and make them look red. As a result, I never wear …Read more

it Cosmetics Celebration Foundation is a powder foundation. Bought this product from The Shopping Channel in Canada in medium beige. I think medium light would be better for winter.

Now these type of foundations usually do not nothing for those 65 and over. This one is different. It did not settle into the crepey/wrinkled areas. It was easy to apply with the brush that …

My poor old eye brows are going through the great hair migration. (Something my mother never warned me about.) You know what I mean...the hair around the upper part of your head migrates your chinny chin chin, upper lip, etc. Anyway my brows have no tail and do not begin above the inner corner of the eye. Consequently I've tried everything...wax-powder combo, gel, all kinds of …Read more
