Sunscreen - Juice Beauty - SPF 30 Sport Sunscreen

5.0

9 days ago

I'm a sunscreen junkie and have tried lots of different products, both chemical and mineral. I've now been using this Juice Beauty sunscreen on and off for a few years. It's almost perfect, for a mineral sunscreen. It has an effective percentage of zinc (20%) and no titanium dioxide. It stays put pretty well when sweating. It does settle in my fine lines a bit, as does every other …Read more

Moisturizers - La Roche-Posay - Hydraphase Intense Riche Hyaluronic Acid Cream

I love the short list of ingredients in this effective, lightweight moisturizer. It's unscented, which I prefer (I love perfume, but not on my face). The pump bottle keeps the product clean and fresh. It's not quite moisturizing enough in mid-winter when the heat is blasting and the air is super dry. But in warmer months it's perfect. I found that it's not suitable for my eye …Read more

Cleansers - Olay - Regenerist Luminous Brightening Cream Cleanser

2.0

I think this product has been recently reformulated, because it doesn't contain gentle microbeads. That's good, because microbeads are terrible for the environment. But, unfortunately, Olay is now including some kind of awful, sharp, tiny shards of pain.

Random, uneven, tiny scrapes are no way to exfoliate.

Otherwise, the cleanser is great. So great that I might …

Moisturizers - CeraVe - Moisturizing Lotion - Normal to Dry Skin

Given the high quality of ingredients, I don't know why this isn't more moisturizing. It's summer in New England, very humid out, and still this lotion doesn't moisturize my face or my hands enough. I would try the cream, but don't want the giant tub.

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Sheer Zinc Sunscreen Lotion Dry-Touch SPF 30

Apr/02/2017

An almost perfect mineral sunscreen. The percentage of zinc, just over 18%, is high enough to be effective, and the lotion goes on easily. I've been using it on my face, spreading it on relatively generously and patting it to even it out without rubbing it around too much (which can spread it too thinly). It dries mostly evenly, but does leave a white cast. Once dry, it has a slightly waxy …Read more

Cleansers - Alaffia - Coconut Face Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2015

After switching to a zinc sunscreen with an oil base (Juice Beauty's BB cream, which is great) this summer, my trusty Neutrogena Ultra Gentle cleanser wasn't doing the trick anymore. It wouldn't wash the sunscreen off. Nor would soap. Knowing that coconut oil is good at dissolving oils, I tried the Alaffia Everyday wash. It took off the sunscreen easily, and I've been using it …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

Jul/11/2015

This product mostly cleared up my moderate acne, but after using it for a few weeks, it began to dry out my skin. I stopped using it for a while, then tried using it occasionally, but that doesn't work well because the product makes my acne worse at first, until I adjust to it. So I'm not using it much. Also, it's very, very sticky. Finally, I don't like the bottle, because …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Avon - Anew Ultimate 7S Eye System

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/01/2014

I've been using the Avon Ultimate eye cream for at least a few years, and at various times have tried other eye creams thinking I might find something better (eternal hope of the product junkie). I always come back to the Avon Ultimate. Nothing else reduces the slight wrinkles on my eyelids better than this product. Retinol is too drying on my eyelids, no matter how slowly I introduce it …Read more

Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Rapid Tone Repair Night Moisturizer

5.0

Mar/02/2014

I've been using this product for over a year and love it. It's surprisingly moisturizing considering it's more like a serum than a cream, and it keeps my skin smooth, even, and glowing. A big plus is that it keeps my nose pores relatively clear, which NO other product has done except benzoyl peroxide. I was finally able to give up BP, after decades!

Only one downside: I …
