I originally attempted to add a serum to evening routine via a PC sample of Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. I absolutely loved the texture but I learned after using it that my skin doesn't tolerate retinol. After doing a little more research, I decided to try Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum, and I love it! It provides an extra boost of hydration to my combination …Read more

What a disappointment! I ran out of my beloved Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Creme, but when I went to purchase a replacement I realized it was discontinued, and the Eurcerin website is promoting this as the 'improved' version. Boy were they wrong! This is nothing like the original - it has the consistency of runny glue and is about as effective as water on my extremely dry hands …Read more

When I ran out of my Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Creme, I was very disappointed, as it was my HG hand cream - absorbed very quickly, not greasy at all, fragrance and most importantly, it worked beautifully!!! It's amazing how hard this combination is to find in a hand cream. Their replacement product, Eucerin Advanced Repair Hand Creme, was awful - the consistency of runny glue and …Read more

I have recently discovered these triangular-tip brow pencils after being introduced to one at the MAC counter. I love how easy to use they are for someone like me with a limited brow skill set. I've been searching for a drugstore dupe ever since, and I've tried them all, from Maybelline to Wet & Wild and everything in between. I have to say, this is the best of the bunch. It is so …Read more

I was so excited to try this lip balm after reading a stellar Beautypedia review. It's hard to find a really good lip balm with an SPF, an itt was impossible to find in any stores near me, which only made it more desirable to me, lol! So when I finally saw it on Target's website, I grabbed it. Sadly, I have never been so disappointed in a product in my life! Yes, it glides on smoothly …Read more

I received a sample of this last November and tried it out for a while. I am super sensitive to perfumes (many cause migraines for me) so I have to tread lightly when trying new scents. Not only did this pass the migraine test, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it once the sample ran out. I treated myself to a bottle and it had become my favorite winter fragrance . Its warm vanilla scent feels …Read more

I received a generous sample of this from the BB counter. On the plus side, this moisturized and worked nicely under makeup, providing a very subtle glow. On the minus side, this product was so strongly fragranced that it gave me a headache! The fragrance would have been lovely in a room candle, but had no place on my face. If BB could eliminate the fragrance and add an SPF, this would be a …Read more

I so wanted to love this product, but sadly, it did not work for me. I used it as a finishing powder, as suggested by the SA and many MUAers. On the positive side, this is probably the most luxurious-feeling powder I have ever used. There is no denying the quality - it feels almost creamy. I used the Sonia Kashuk 01 Large Powder Brush (amazing brush, btw) to apply over my foundation and the …Read more

I purchased a regular sized jar of this body yogurt after using a sample that I got from Walgreens a while back. I use this as a hand lotion, so I can't vouch for its performance as a body lotion. For my hands, I absolutely love it. It is creamy - as its name suggests, it has the consistency of a custard-y yogurt (not quite as thick as a Greek yogurt but thicker and much less runny than …Read more

I purchased this in hopes that it would be a lower-cost alternative to the Nars Light Reflecting pressed powder, but I was very disappointed. Although their ingredients are quite similar, this one caused me to break out, whereas I've never had that problem with the Nars version. I usually like SK products but this was unfortunately a miss for me.
