Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream - Night

2.0

Jan/23/2018

Sorry to write a negative - but the list of ingredients HAS changed: retinol is now the last ingredient. Virtually none at all, it seems. One amazon reviewer from 2016 reports it has .025 % retinol, also noting that the maker did not want to answer the question, and she found out on her own. And L7997's review here November 2016 notes that retinol is already listed last, whereas before it …Read more

Concealers - NYX Professional Makeup - Full Coverage Concealer Jar

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/28/2013

I have used this as a concealer for blemishes, or areas of redness. It is heavily pigmented, and has a fairly thick consistency (not liquid; more like a paste. in the jar, it's about the consistency of baked cheesecake and melts under your finger), and helps diminish obvious problem spots. Careful not to build it up too much or that can look worse than the problem you're covering. …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - She Australia - Milk and Honey Body Souffle

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/17/2012

This is wonderful body cream - very lightly scented and a smooth, rich (but not too rich) texture that absorbs well into the skin.
SHE has a number of different scented body creams - this one and Frangipani (slightly honeysucklish scent) are body "souffles" - a whipped slightly lighter body butter. The out and out body butters - violet, geranium, mango orange - are pretty similar …

Toners - Thayers - Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner - Rose Petal

A honey of a product!
I have not used a toner in years - found it unnecessary and sometimes drying. However this is a different matter altogether! It's cleansing, and lightly moisturizing. It moisturizes as much as it cleanses and clarifies. Seems to slightly brighten skin, and refine pores. I use in the morning; and at the end of the day (in preference to a night cream most nights …

Cleansers - Jergens - All-Purpose Face Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/17/2012

I really enjoy using this product. I use it mostly at the end of the day to remove sunscreen and make up - slather a bit on, and tissue off. I have slightly sensitive skin, and have had no problem with it. It cleans effectively and gently.
The price is unbeatable. I had been using Ponds but their price went up. Now I slightly favor the Jergens any way - not just cost.
A terrific …

Blush - NYX Professional Makeup - Rouge Cream Blush - Natural

May/18/2011

I have been using the old MAC cremeblush in Ladyblush and Lilicent - but now that they have changed to a different formula, I thought I would try the NYX option - a lot cheaper and MA gave good ratings. I would not have thought of NYX without the ratings here - think of the NYX line as somehow younger and more glam than I go for.
On me (fair skin - I use Makeupforever Lift Foundation …

Cleansers - Pond's - Cold Cream Makeup Remover Deep Cleanser

5.0

Apr/26/2009

I was using cetaphil as daily cleanser and still do like it - but I noticed a lot of MAalleyers writing that cetaphil is not an ultra effective makeup remover (sunscreen blush foundation lipstick) - and that Ponds is. And they were right!
I slather a bit on, let it sit a moment, then tissue off.
It is a bit rich - so esp in hot weather, I then follow with a bit of cetaphil. It …

Nov/28/2008

Let the lamentations begin - Sephora is discontinuing this product both online and in the shops.
I used 01, about as light as I would go, a light, luminous coverage, and wanted to get another - but Sephora is not selling it anymore.

From Sephora:
""Make Up For Ever Liquid Lift Foundation has been discontinued on our website as well as our stores. We greatly …

Lotions/ Creams - Trader Joe's - A Midsummer Night's Cream Extra Dry Formula

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/06/2008

bought both the TJ's Midsummer Nights Cream Lotion (green top), and the slightly heavier cream (pink top), both unscented. Terrific after-bath cream/lotions, (and terrific value- around $3 for 16 ozs.) Absorbs quickly.
I keep one of each open, and mix a shot each, half-and-half, or whatever, depending on what my skin needs
