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 it to apply this Total Eye tinted cream …Read more

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

5.0
Created with Sketch.

12 days 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

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 …

I wear layers of serums, moisturizer, sunscreen and foundation every day. I wash my face twice (once to remove makeup, then to actually cleanse) and while my skin looked clean I felt that I could use some deeper cleansing. I investigated the Clarisonic but was turned off by the price and the mixed reviews. However in researching the Clarisonic I kept coming across these recommendations for …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Obagi - C-Clarifying Serum

Mar/13/2011

One of the very few treatment products I've used that actually gave me significant, visible results. I had a lot of inadvertent sun damage as a kid which is just now coming to the surface in the form of dark spots and discoloration. After three months of using this serum, most of the palest spots are completely gone, and the darkest spots are significantly lighter. In addition some minor …Read more

Cleansers - Obagi - C-Cleansing Gel

Mar/13/2011

I've been a faithful Purpose Cleansing Gel user for 20 years and finally found something better. This is a fantastic foaming gel cleanser for all skin types. I wash my face twice, once to remove makeup and a second time to thoroughly cleanse the skin. It completely removes all of my makeup (mascara, brow pencil, sunscreen, foundation...everything!) very effectively. It never leaves my …Read more
