I really like this mask, which I use a couple of times per week. I wake up with very hydrated, smooth skin, with my overall tone improved. It is very hydrating, so I am not sure how great it would be for people with very acne prone skin. My skin does break out from time to time, though, and I have had no issues on that front with this mask. If your skin is very dry or irritated, I think this …Read more

The irony of this product for me is that I really like it, but my skin needs to be looking its absolute best for me to use this alone. It is very sheer, with very little coverage, so if you are looking for something that is any way a traditional foundation, this is not it. However, when my skin is at its best, this product gives it extra radiance, and also works to even out tone a tiny bit …Read more

I use this when I am going out -- it makes your skin soft and smooth and provides a bit more radiance. It is expensive, but not as expensive as some others on the market. I would note that it is probably quite likely that you could make an oil mix at home that is as effective as this, if not more so, for less money. So I don't know that this is necessary on a daily basis, but I find at …Read more

I generally put my skincare products into two categories -- those that are very effective in changing your skin, and those that are may be less effective, but look and feel nice when you are going out. I put this cream in the 1st category, as I wouldn't necessarily wear it out under makeup (a bit too thick), but I think it is great for wearing at night or when you are at home because I find …Read more

I absolutely love this product. I am a product junkie, so I routinely move from product to product and have an absurd number of serums, moisturizers, treatments, etc. For years, however, I have routinely gone back to Revive. As context, I have combination skin that can both break out and be very dry (I also use many exfoliating products, including Retin-A micro). Whenever my skin is acting …Read more

Folks seem to be split on this product -- it is either a skin saver/miracle, or it is over-hyped. Given the price, I absolutely think this is more image than reality, and CDM really is not the miracle its made out to be. That said, it is a very good moisturizer for when you have really dryed out your skin and want something to counteract that. I have CDM, but I view it as an …Read more

As someone who is fair skinned, I think this product tends to be a better choice than the usual ones from St Tropez. It is more of a golden hued highlighter than anything, and, if used correctly, is quite good at giving a more toned, lengthened look to your muscles. It won't give you a tan though, and I don't think it would look very natural if it was applied all over your body. …Read more

I find YSL great as a highlighter -- I use it from my cheekbone to the area beyond my eye, down my nose, and sometimes on my brown bone and around the lips. I really do think of it as a highlighter, although it does give some coverage as well. There are a huge number of highlighters out on the market today, and what I like about this one is that it is much more natural and doesn't include …Read more

Apr/12/2013

I have found this oil to be great for my skin. I tend to use quite a few exfoliating products, including retin a micro, and this seems to calm my skin, make it softer and reduce redness/dryness. My skin is normally combination, with both break outs at times and dryness at others. This appears to create the right balance. I have only started using this in the past few weeks and started out …Read more
