I have dry, sensitive skin, and as i've gotten older it's developed into fine wrinkles. It is so dry i normally use the Origins Drink Up intensive mask as a daily moisturizer, but this has replaced it as my HG. I don't know what's in this product but it gives my skin a dewy, healthy glow. under makeup my skin has the luster of a 20yo. :)

This stuff is amazing! It seems deceptively waxy, like coconut oil, but immediately melts into a watery oil that spreads all over. The first time i used way too much, it's more like la mer cream where a just little dab will do. Add water and the oil is GONE. This has replaced my HG Clinique take the day off, because it completely removes any makeup without drying out my skin or leaving an …Read more

I've tried drugstore bb creams, and nothing comes close to the sheer coverage of this bb cream. It smells fantastic, like fresh oranges, and did not turn orange on me like my la Roche posay tinted mineral sunblock. I'm an NC30, and this cream just enhanced my skin. I have extremely dry skin so I would probably use this over a moisturizer in winter. I don't know what's in it …Read more

my 7yo daughter has severely dry skin. as a former cancer patient, i am vigilant about potentially carcinogenic ingredients in products. this lotion was recommended by my dermatologist at sloan, and it lives up to its billing. it is about as moisturizing as the johnson and johnson shea butter body lotion, without parabens or fragrances. i love how soft this lotion makes my skin, i just wish …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara

My voluminous mascara was getting old so I thought I'd try something new. I have short,thin and straight Asian lashes so I decided to try beauty tubes based on the MUA reviews. I was underwhelmed. The white primer dries too quickly for me to coat my lashes evenly, so by the time I got every single lash it was already clumping. It was hard to cover all of the white primer with the black …Read more

i like this styling cream. it's lighter and less greasy than the frederick fekkai glossing cream i was using, and has a pleasant scent. with my thick, coarse hair, a little goes a long way and makes my hair so soft and shiny without weighing it down. yes, it's expensive at $65 for the bottle, but it will last me a long time. also, i find the pump dispenser more sanitary than tube.

I love this powder, I wanted a good antioxidant but most antioxidants come pre-mixed with moisturizers that don't work for my bone dry skin. Finally stumbled upon this powder. It takes some practice to get the right amount mixed in with my shiseido lotion, but it WORKS! My skin is bright and dewy and one bottle lasts for months. Vitamin c degrades when exposed to light so I keep my bottle …Read more

my HG sunblock, and i've tried many! i started with neutrogena, moved on to skinceuticals (which i felt was too greasy for me), then to the shiseido spf 50, which gave me a white cast. finally with this product i have the full sun protection i'm looking for, with no white cast or greasiness - love it!!

i recieved 2 retinol face masks as samples, and after using it i only wished i could afford to purchase the full pack of 4 pairs. the mask is liquidy paper sheets with cutouts for the eyes and mouth, and you apply for 15 minutes. when i first removed the mask that evening there wasn't much to notice besides a dewy finish, but the next morning my skin was bright, clear and beautiful. i can …Read more
