Miracle product alert! The situation was that 2 months before my wedding, my cystic chin acne was flaring up, and we cystic gals know that a facialist can only do so much to help. I was willing to try anything, so got this product plus the Blemish + Age acne treatment on Amazon.

The Results:
*In one night, my skin was smoother and my cystic acne reduced.
*A week later, my …

Scary orange streaks on my face 20 minutes after application! I jumped when I saw my reflection in the mirror.

I purchased this despite bad reviews because I thought it would be an easy all-in-one for vacations and possibly honeymoon. WRONG.

The consistency is strange - it feels watery and smooth to blend at first, but the color is deposited in grayish clumps that …

This is the only eye cream I have found that doesn't irritate my eyes. I have fine wrinkles, but when I use anti-wrinkle creams, I usually rub my eyes at night and wake up red. This formula was gentle, hydrating, and was great under makeup. I loved the mousse texture that you could gently "crush" into your skin. It felt light and fresh.

Looks perfect and naturally plump for about 20 minutes, but leaves my lips on the dry and "deflated" side afterwards. Who has time to reapply every 20 minutes when at work or in public?

I had been using Fresh Sugar lip treatment in Plum for years, and just wanted to switch things up because I'm starting a new job. Got this at Barney's, was gorgeous when I applied …

What I love:
*My cystic acne has gone down, and my chin is nearly smooth.
* I have no trace of blackheads.
* For the first time in ages, I just smoothed some Perfect primer over my skin instead of foundation, and look great, my skin an even tone.
* I no longer have to exfoliate so much, just gently 1nce per week
What I don't love:
*No improvement to the …

Cleansers - Fresh - Soy Face Cleanser

Aug/31/2011

My HG: this is absolutely the most pampering, gentle cleanser and is a dream for eye makeup removal. The ingredients are all natural. My mother and boyfriend have both told me that my skin smells nice when they go in for the kiss on the cheek =)

The trick (answering to some complaints) is to use it in conjunction with a microfiber towelette instead of just trying to rinse it off …

Wowsers this clogged my pores! (Nothing that some Exfolikate can't undo). That said, it is summer, and I can actually see this being a good once/twice a week regimen during winter along with regular exfoliation. It is very gentle, delicate, and has a soft, fresh scent.

The reason that I even resorted to trying this is that my Fresh Soy Cleanser (extremely gentle, fresh scent, no …

Kate Summerville Exfolikate is much more effective and takes less than a minute. I didn't like having to sit around with this goop, which was very hard to clean off and stained my washcloth. Yes, my skin texture improved, that's true. My skin was sort of glowy afterwards. It has a nice effect, but a better product exists.

This product seemed to work in conjunction with the (amazing) Mayblossom cleanser, but on its own is nothing special. It smells very fresh/herbal-y, but does not live up to the mattifying claim. My skin is shiny within just a couple of hours. It does not make me break out, but likewise it does not diminish my breakouts. Only slightly better than wearing no moisturizer at all.

Aug/30/2011

I have been using a deep mauve powder as liner (from By Terry) for years now, but it's such a big production to have the water, the brush, the powder, and so I needed the simplicity of a liner for gym and travel. This eyeliner is really great, because it's foolproof - doesn't coon eye, is not dark enough to look harsh, but also has enough color to make hazel eyes pop. I'm on …Read more
