Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Lipstick - Afghan Red

5.0

I've been drawn to this color for literally years, but had silly thoughts like, "Oh, but I can't do red. I'm not exotic enough for a color called Afghan Red." If only I'd read the reviews! I'm fairly pale and cool toned, and this color is enlivening without being brazen. It brings out the green in my eyes better than all manner of purple eyeliners. Great for …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster

3.0

I'm teetering on the fence about this. I really want it to work, so much that I decided to try it in spite of the dimethicone. Which, let's face it, is always trouble for me. But in this product it's pretty far down on the list, so I thought it might be okay.

Well, the cream has a nice texture and an inoffensive smell. It feels good, and I don't need any other …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - 10% Niacinamide Booster

I'm 65 and still struggle with sensitive oily skin, mild acne, and bad reactions to many products . These reactions can take the form of either the breakout, or the rosacea flare, variety. Paula's 2% BHA liquid was the first product that really helped my clogged pores -- a huge game changer. So I've tried a lot of her products over the years, but I can't use many of them. (I …Read more

Moisturizers - Desert Essence - Organic Jojoba Oil

May/03/2018

Pretty sad how long it took me to figure out it was the packaging that put me off this stuff at first. The bottle is a bit leaky and unglamorous. It's hard to get the right amount, and one of the keys is not using too much. But finally, it has been doing for me what the glowing reviews promise. With continued use, it has definitely reduced the bumpy feeling of clogged pores (maybe even …Read more

Cleansers - Paula's Choice - CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/12/2018

I agree with the reviewer just below me that it's A LITTLE WEIRD that Paula moved from Triclosan (now banned) in this product to .5% salicylic acid. Didn't she always say salicylic acid was pointless in a cleanser, because it doesn't stay on long enough? If there was a word of explanation, I did not catch it. But I just can't give this a negative review. It's a pretty …Read more

Conditioner - John Masters Organics - Organics Citrus & Neroli Detangler

Dec/31/2017

I'm surprised I have never reviewed this before. I have been through so many bottles, used it with many different shampoos, and been very happy with it. It was just a nice, light cream rinse with a lovely, light scent that didn't annoy me. It was good for my long hair, and more importantly, it did not make my skin break out! Because I am one of those people who breaks out if I use …Read more

Brows - Glossier - Boy Brow

4.0

Dec/22/2017

I rebelled against the silly name for a long time. But I finally tried it, and the product is so good. Just right in terms of texture, color and natural hold without stiffness. I had been using a Sephora brow crayon plus a little Anastasia pencil, but any time I can ditch two products for one that does it better, I'm happy. Blonde is my color. If a blob comes out, its easy to blend it in. (I …Read more

Powder - Alima Pure - Pressed Foundation with Rosehip Antioxidant Complex

Dec/15/2017

I waited so long for Alima to make a product like this, so I could carry it around for touch-ups. I was shocked when it finally arrived and I realized it was scented with essential oils. I did use it for awhile. It didn't cause problems; but the fragrance was ultimately a deal breaker for me. I just don't like it. It reminds me of a lavender-calendula diaper cream I used to use on the …Read more

Moisturizers - CHANEL - La Solution 10 de Chanel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/17/2017

I used Differin gel over the summer without any problems. As soon as the weather turned cold, I began to experience discomfort and dryness. I stopped Differin, but made the mistake of trying an AHA to exfoliate the dry patches -- which compounded the problem with flushing and redness. So, I'm not a Chanel person at all, but I went and got a sample of La Solution 10. It fixed a major dry …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Avene - Retrinal

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/26/2017

I've bought this several times. The nurse at the Med-Spa recommended it for my fair, oily, sensitive, acne-and-rosacea prone skin. (I wanted Retin-A, which was working miracles for my sister, and she said "Nope.") I used Retrinal for awhile in the spring and did appreciate the steady results. It has moisturizing properties, yet still seems to refine. But my skin regresses to total …Read more
