I have been using this product for about a month and I have really noticed a difference in my complexion. I use this mostly as a preventative age treatment as I am in my very late 20s and wish to condition my skin.

I started lightly, about 2-3/week then at week two, I applied every night. I braced myself, knowing that there would be an adjustment period. And indeed there was. Almost …

This is a review for the European version of Nivea Creme.

This product is no-frills. It is of thick constancy an can really repair dry skin.
I notably fell in love with it when I started using retinol and got patches of extremely dry skin around my mouth and nose. I applied it at night and after several days, my skin not only recovered, but achieved a "dewiness" about …

I wish I would have read the reviews on here before I bought two of these!
I use baking soda usually because I want to stay away from harmful chemicals, but I really need the convenience of a regular deodorant.
This is a big FAIL. I was so embarrassed and self-conscious after two days of using this due to the smell that I just stopped altogether.
Do not spend your money on …

I love this product. But I HATE, HATE, HATE the packaging.

I am fortunate not to have many skin problems, so I really look for very minimal, very natural-looking coverage. This product is really great for that. I have been using it for several years and keep on going back to it even when I cheat on it with others from time to time just to check out what is out there.

I …

This creme is only ok.

What I like most about it is its dispenser. I find it sanitary (enough) in a world where foundations and like can be gross.

What I do not like is the lack of shades. The SA at Sephora first tested one too dark on me. She then proceeded to try the next lightest, which was much too light. I bought it anyway, hoping that if I only put on a little, and …

Love this shampoo, as it leaves my hair super clean. I usually wash every other day, though when I'm feeling extra lazy, I use a dry shampoo on the 3rd day and wash the next, where I will wash and repeat 2-3 times in terms of shampoo, since dry shampoo tends to leave a powdery film after.

The scent is awesome, the shine afterward is great, too.

However, when …

Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

Jun/22/2009

I used to use OPI's fast drying top coat, and I liked it fine and all until I found this. When compared to the last one that I used for almost 2 yrs, this one is much more liquid-y. The brush is also thinner. I almost felt like I had less control. But actually, it just glides right on once I got the hang of it. And it is not the fact that it is so fast-drying as much as the shine they it …Read more

This has most definitely improved my brittle nails. Before, my nails would split at the top, and before they would get to a certain length, the nail polish would just chip because the top lawyer was always missing. After a few weeks of use, I clearly have harder, longer nails. They are the longest they have ever been without splitting at the ends! And they look healthy (I also use cuticle oil) …Read more
