Cleansers - CeraVe - Hydrating Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Although I generally love CeraVe products (I use the lotion, cream, and the SA cleanser), the Hydrating Facial Cleanser just doesn't work for me as a cleanser or makeup remover. It makes my eyes sting and water. I wear minimal eye makeup and don't use waterproof mascara, but in order to remove my eye makeup I had to do a lot of rubbing, which isn't good. It felt like I had a slight …Read more

Fragrances - Hermès - Amazone

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

This review is for the vintage version of Amazone by Hermes. I've worn this perfume since the early 1980's in all concentrations, Extrait, EDP and EDT.
When I first put it on, it's rich velvety smoothness was a far departure of Jean-Claude Ellena's recent creations. This perfume was created by Maurice Maurin, who used a more deft hand at balancing just the right amount …

Liquid - Jane Iredale - Liquid Minerals Foundation

1.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I recently purchased the Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals foundation and I am so disappointed; this is easily the worst foundation in my rotation. Regardless of which type of sunscreen I use (I tried four, EltaMD SPF 44, Australian Gold SPF 50, La Roche Posay Anthelios Mineral SPF 50 and La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 60 for kids-none worked), it breaks up the sunscreen underneath and I have to …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Glycolix Elite - Treatment Pads 20%

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/07/2018

I have used this product (Glycolix exfoliating pads 20%) for about 10 years now and I absolutely love the results on my skin. I lived in Fl for 20 years and as a former sunbather, am now doing damage control (I should have listened to my mom when she said to use sunscreen!).
I use it on the backs of my hands, and my neck and chest area (not on my face, it's too active) after showering …

Moisturizers - CeraVe - Moisturizing Lotion - Normal to Dry Skin

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2018

I purchased this based on Youtube reviewer Dr. Dray, I'm 51 and need a moisturizer that's gentle without clogging pores and has antioxidants. As someone who is experiencing menopausal acne, I can't have anything too heavy or it will aggravate my acne.

After a few months of use (I use it for a.m. and p.m. routine), I have to say I'm impressed! CeraVe is …

Cleansers - CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2018

I purchased this based on Youtube reviewer Dr. Dray, I'm 51 and need a cleanser that's gentle but exfoliates and has antioxidants. As someone who is experiencing menopausal acne, I have the luxury of experiencing cystic acne breakouts and dry skin/wrinkles (oh the joy of aging!!) at the same time. O_o

After a few weeks of use (I use it for a.m. routine), I have to say …

Sunscreen - MISSHA - All-Around Safe Block Essence Sun Milk SPF 50+/PA+++

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2018

I really enjoy this sunscreen, it protects my skin yet feels lightweight, my foundation applies over this beautifully without pilling or streaking and my skin feels nicely hydrated. I'm Mediterranean, yellow/medium undertone and it doesn't leave a white(ish) cast to the skin. I will certainly repurchase when I'm finished with my current bottle. Given the elegance and effectiveness …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre Lipstick - Spice It Up

5.0

Dec/29/2017

I've been a fan of this lipstick color for 15 or so years, it's my go-to easy to wear safe-for daytime red that works well with my pale/warm (C3) coloring. I would describe this as a sheer warm berry red with coverage that's buildable.

Toners - Biologique Recherche - Exfoliating Lotion P50

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/03/2017

I am 50, a lifelong skin care junkie, I thought I'd seen and used it all when it comes to skin care. Boy was I happily surprised when I decided to purchase the famous cult beauty product P50 lotion 1970 (original formula).
I use it in the morning after cleansing, and prior to moisturizing and sunscreen. It does tingle a little after applying, but after a few minutes that dies down …

Concealers - Kevyn Aucoin - The Sensual Skin Enhancer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/28/2017

I'd heard a lot of rave reviews about this product, once you get the technique down, this is a holy grail foundation for me! I use SX 07 color, light warm with a yellow undertone.

Sensual skin enhancer is an amazing product, it's very pigmented, a little goes a long way, there's a learning curve but once you get the hang of it (and find your shade match), there are very …
