Cleansers - Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser

May/12/2012

I would really like to rate this product a big fat ZERO! As many doctors, etc. recommend Centaphil cleanser for sensitive and/or dry skin. I had used this cleanser for quite some time, although I was wondering why my skin was getting drier, especially around my eyes. Even the skin under my eyes was becoming dry and irritated. I thought maybe it's just a premenopausal thing going on, as this …Read more

Moisturizers - BIODERMA - Sensibio Rich Dry/Very dry skin

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2012

The only thing good about this product is the packaging, as it comes in a tube. I used this around my eyes as they were dry. I found that it made my skin tight and even drier. I think this product and the Sensibio AR are totally useless. I have vascular rosacea, the kind where I have visible veins and pink cheeks. I believe rosacea must be treated from within, internally. Applying a topical …Read more

Okay, I could kiss the person that invented this product, well maybe just on the cheek. Since my age is creeping up to the big 5-0, my skin has pretty much become irritated by anything and everything. I don't know if it's the premenopausal thing or what? But lately, products that my face would tolerate, won't anymore. I usually use Cetaphil, to cleanse, but found it doesn't do …Read more

Liquid - Lancôme - Renergie Lift Makeup SPF 20

I believe this foundation made me look 10 years older! I must agree with some of the previous reviews, that this foundation emphasized the lines on my face, even though for my age, I have few. I found the formula not to be "lifting" but actually "tightening". This tightening effect was actually drying, with really dried out my under eye area. I do have dry, sensitive skin …Read more

Oct/11/2011

I was loyal to Laura Mercier's Moisturizing Foundation for several reasons. First of all I have drier skin and second I can't tolerate foundations that contain peptides. I recently discovered that Mercier has discontinued this foundation, so I was on the search for a replacement. I went to my local Shopper's Drug Mart, the sales associate removed the makeup I was wearing and used …Read more

CD/Books/Movies - Paula's Choice - Don't go to the cosmetics counter without me 7th edition

2.0

Apr/18/2011

I agree with some of the other reviewers that rated this book low. I feel that Paula Begoun really is nothing more than a department store makeup counter person. Now don't get me wrong, as I think most of these people are wonderful, and I personally have been offered great advice from them. In addition, these workers are not writing books, and having consumers believe they know everything! …Read more

Moisturizers - Shi Kai - Borage Dry Skin Therapy 24-Hour Repair Facial Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/15/2011

I would definitely repurchase this product again. Number one, it is really inexpensive for the results that it delivers. I had the worst driest skin around, (due mostly to laser treatment) and it left my face soft, without being greasy. I only use it at night, as I wear sunscreen and moisturizing foundation for day use. The product is great for sensitive skin, and can be used around the eyes as …Read more

Skincare - Face - Shi Kai - Facial Cleanser

Mar/14/2011

This cleanser is good for my sensitive, mostly dry face. It does contain a bit of fragrance, but I don't find that it's a problem. It rinses clean, doesn't leave an oily residue like a lot of cleansers that are recommended for dry or sensitive skin. It would be good for normal/dry/sensitive skin. Pretty reasonable for price, as I figure why spend a lot for cleanser, as it gets …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Shi Kai - Borage Dry Skin Therapy Eye Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2011

I had to order this eye cream from the company over the phone, as I couldn't find a store that sells it where I live. The Shi Kai rep. was really helpful, and stated that the company had a full money-back policy if dissatisfied with any of the products. I have very sensitive eyes, so I really liked the fact that this was fragrance free. I've tried many eye serums and creams, from …Read more

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Nucerity- Skincerity

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2011

I've been using this product for about 3 weeks. I can't stand the smell first of all, very strong. I find that it is somewhat drying on my face, even with a moisturizer underneath. (Such as Cetaphil, that is great for sensitive skin like mine). I didn't notice any reduction of redness. In fact Skincerity is hard to remove in the morning, and rubbing with a wet washcloth, only …Read more
