Replenix makes two similar versions of this product: Restorative Nighttime Bio-Therapy (for all skin types) and ENRICHED Nighttime Bio-Therapy (for dry skin). This review is for the ENRICHED version.

First of all this product comes in fantastic packaging, it's a jar with a pump top inside. One push down and it dispenses the perfect amount of product to cover your face. No …

Treatments (Face) - Topix - Replenix Pure Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

This is a great HA serum with some added benefits. I find it really calms my skin (I believe from the zinc and copper) and the peptides are a great anti-aging boost. It also contains 3 sizes of HA molecules (high and low molecular weights) to help absorb deeper. The serum has a clear aqua blue tint from the natural color of the copper ingredient (not a dye). The added glycerin helps it spread …Read more

Sunscreen - Colorescience - Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50

1 month ago

I got a sample of this mineral sunscreen (which lasted about 3 applications) and was impressed enough to shell out for the full size. I wear this alone on my no-makeup days. The formula is a silky, thin liquid that spreads easily. The tint is on the pale side with a pink base - I'd guess it's about an NC20 - with a slight bit of a pearl finish (if the Elta MD tinted sunscreens are …Read more

If you have purple/blue dark circles, this product is an excellent color corrector to use before you apply your regular concealer. Also if you have aging crepey undereyes like I do, you probably know that the fewer layers of products under your concealer the better (less thickness = less chance of creasing or getting cakey). The trick I have found is to use your finger and dab this Total Eye …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - THE INKEY LIST Hyaluronic Acid Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I've been trying out different HA serums and so far this is my winner. The Inkey serum contains 3 different size HA molecules--low and high--for better and deeper absorption (some other products like Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 contain just one size molecule). This serum is very lightweight and has a pleasing slippery texture that makes it easy to spread. However it absorbs quickly and …Read more

Moisturizers - Kiehl's - Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream

Jul/16/2013

<p>I received a deluxe sample of this and decided to try it out. It's the only new product I added to my regimen. It's a thick white paste with a very faint apricot fragrance. It spreads relatively easily, and while you can feel it sitting on your face at first, it eventually sinks in and leaves a matte finish.</p>
<p>After just three nights of use I was …

I only wear this color on my toes, and it's my absolute HG. I've been wearing this color regularly for two years I love it that much. I do my own detailed pedicures at home because I'm picky about the application. I use Essie Ridge Filler Base Coat, 2 coats of this color, and Seche Vite Top Coat. This combination of products makes the pedicure last for one month. No chips or …Read more

Candles - Unlisted Brand - Jennifer Lopez Hyacinth Fig candle

Jan/19/2013

Let me preface this by saying that I'm a candle snob. I only burn the high end types... Diptyque, Jo Malone, Tocca, etc. I like a high quality, sophisticated fragrance with good throw and nice packaging. No drugstore candles here...

I received a large 3-wick Jennifer Lopez Hyacinth Fig candle as a Christmas gift. I had no idea Jennifer Lopez even made candles. Looking more …

I've been testing a variety of "everything but the kitchen sink" antioxidants in search of the perfect product. First try was Osmosis Replenish which was a fail (see separate review). Next up CosMedix Affirm. Out of the gate this serum is nicely packaged in a smooth soft-pump bottle. The serum is an light beige color and not slimy. One pump is sufficient to cover the entire …Read more

Skincare - Body - Unlisted Brand - Mr. Pumice Purple Pumi Bar

There are two versions of the Mr. Pumice Pumi Bar: REGULAR and EXTRA-COARSE.

<p>
If you're looking for true exfoliation of dry heels, calluses, etc. don't waste your time with the Regular bar, its too weak to do the job--go straight to the Extra-Coarse bar. It easily removes dried skin with less effort and no discomfort whatsoever. I use it once weekly and it …
