Loved this a lot more then I thought I would. I apply a thin layer over my moisturizer, then apply BB cream with a damp makeup sponge. After my blush, I also dab on a tiny bit in the apple of my cheek. My skin looks dewy, youthful and glowy. This hadn't made me break out either, which is a huge plus. I think thus would look too metallic if used as a stand alone product....but under BB cream …Read more

Shampoo - Frederic Fekkai - Glossing Shampoo

I was going to give this 3 stars, because it is a decent enough shampoo.... But it broke the cardinal rule for me by not living up to its claim. A product earns it's stars by doing what it says it will do. While this cleans my hair without drying it out, it does not add shine or gloss in any way. Any product (especially an expensive one like this one) should live up to its promises. This one …Read more

Treatments (Face) - LUSH - Full of Grace Serum Bar

Let me start with the positives. Yes, this does moisturize and leaves your skin feeling soft. It does have an oily sheen, but that didn't bother me, as I only used it at night. It looks like a small bar of soap. The heat of your hands "melts" the serum, which you apply to your skin. I just kept mine in a small Tupperware container.

But holy smoke.... do not get this …

Dec/04/2014

Love love love this stuff. I get red, raw, aggravated cheeks in the winter...and this has been a life saver. I apply a pea sized amount morning, and night. My skin soaks this up, and I do not wash it off. My skin feels truly moisturizerized, and incredibly soft. It also noticeably calms down the inflamed spots I get on my cheeks with the colder weather. It also makes a nice smooth base for my …Read more

A great product in so many ways.

I started out using this as a body mask in the shower......slather on and liightly rince off.
It leaves your skin soft and smooth, and i only apply further moisturizer during the cold dry winter.

I have combo facial skin (oily t zone, and painfully dry red cheeks). I had tried OCM for a while, and while my cheeks liked it, my nose broke …

Cleansers - St. Ives - Olive Cleanser

May/24/2013

As other reviewers have noted, although this is clearly marked as 'moisturizing' on the label, it is the harshest cleanser i have ever run across.

Running out of my beloved Ponds Cold Cream in mid shower, i thought i would try this out. St. Ives usually makes decent products, and this had been sitting in my stash for a while waiting to be trialed.

I have the usual …

Deodorants - Dove - Dove Ultimate Visibly Smooth

I actually don't use this as a deoderant. I shave my bikini area every 2 days, and despite regular exfoliating, always have the dreaded pink bumps along my bikini line. I read somewhere that a trick that strippers use is to apply this to the area after shaving...... and it really works.
It works so well, that my husband decided to use his deoderant on his neck after shaving, and …

Treatments (Face) - DERMAdoctor - Poetry In Lotion Intensive Retinol 1.0

Mar/01/2012

This is a strong retinol 1.0 treatment. After an initial rough start with this product, I was ready to give it up. The directions say to use every other day, which I did twice. I then developed a beaming red chemical burn, that lasted for a week. It flushed so red that total strangers were asking me if I was O.K. Not a pretty sight.

If it had not been a $75.00 product from Sephora I …

Shampoo - Pureology - Hydrate Shampoo

Feb/15/2012

Probably the worst shampoo I have ever used. It made my long wavy hair look super dry and frizzy. Even the people I worked with noticed, and made a comment to me. It took several deep conditioning txs to bring it back around. I would rather rather wash my hair with dish washing liquid then to use this again!

Shave Products - Aveeno - Positively Smooth Shave Gel

Jan/02/2012

Great shave gel. It's much thicker and richer then other shave gels...so I get no nicks or shave burns when using this. And like some other reviewers I can get away with shaving every second or third day. For some reason I get slower hair regrowth using this. My local drug store does not stock this product, so I have to drive 20 minutes out of town to buy. That tells you how much I love this …Read more
