Moisturizers - Philosophy - Hope in a Jar for Dry, Sensitive Skin

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2010

This is the best moisturizer in the world!
It is very light on my skin and moisturizes ridiculously well - I have very dry and extremely sensitive skin - even the regular hope in a jar would create a slight burning sensation.
This product has forever changed my skin. Along with the rest of my philosophy regiment, I get so many compliments on my skin. I think if I had to choose only one …

Cleansers - Philosophy - The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2010

This is great! It says that it's gentle enough for daily use, but I believe that people exfoliate way too often! Though it is BY FAR the most gentle exfoliating wash I've ever seen/used, it would irritate my skin if I used something even slightly abrasive every day - my skin is super sensitive.
I use this stuff twice a week and I am always amazed at how soft and smooth my face …

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2010

This is the perfect cleanser for me!
For my dry, sensitive skin, I used to use only the mildest cleansers but they didn't end up doing a very good job cleansing my face. I decided to give this a try. Mid-face-wash, I thought to myself, Nope, too harsh, too drying! It felt like my face was getting super clean, something I wasn't used to. Then I towel-dried my face and was …

Cleansers - SHISEIDO - Pureness Refreshing Cleansing Sheets

May/21/2010

Just unnecessary. I'm not sure if it's a refreshing sheet or a makeup remover... I used it before washing my face to try and get some makeup off and that seemed to work okay.
I have fairly dry skin though and these definitely dried my skin out! I can see if it was a super hot summer day and you needed something to wipe up if you're sweaty and gross, these might be good for …

Cleansers - SHISEIDO - Ultimate Cleansing Oil

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2010

This product broke me out, and I also just find it kind of bizarre and unnecessary.
I have a great facial cleanser that will remove all traces of sunscreen, even water resistant sunscreen, so this product is just unnecessary.
Also, I had never tried an oil cleanser and I just plain don't like them. It's very bizarre to slather oil on your face while it's dry, then wipe …

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Sun Protection Lip Treatment SPF 36 PA++

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2010

I love this product!
I don't use it as a regular lip balm or lip moisturizer, other products are intended for that use. What I DID need is what I have found - something to provide SPF protection for my lips without a terrible sunscreen taste.
It does leave a slight white cast but it goes away quickly and I honestly don't mind it. This has a great high SPF for the lip area and …

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Sun Protection Eye Cream SPF 32 PA+++

May/21/2010

I got a sample of this product and absolutely love it! It had never occurred to me to use a separate sunscreen for my eye area than for the rest of my face, but I use a separate eye cream than a regular facial moisturizer - and I got it as part of a sample package, so I figured why not try it?!
The consistency is great and while I wish it had a higher spf and was slightly less expensive, a …

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 55 PA+++ [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/21/2010

This is the perfect sunscreen for my dry, sensitive, fair face! My skin is very reactive to any harsh ingredients and I've been using this for a while and haven't had any breakouts, itchiness, redness, or swelling. It goes great on top of my regular moisturizer without producing a super-greasy feeling, but still lightly moisturizes as well. I love the high SPF because I have very light …Read more
