Some Glossier products work spectacularly for me, and I adore them and hope they will be available forever and ever. Others are less thrilling. This fell into the second category. I found the finish cakey and obtrusive, and generally the whole affair didn't make anything look better than it had beforehand. Oh well!

Sep/18/2017

I'm on my third bottle of this, and I suppose I should admit by now that it's a keeper. I have occasionally been convinced to stray by the allure of this or that bell or whistle, but in the end Milky Jelly wins out. For me, it really gets the job done: cleans up after a day of makeup or a night of sweating, never breaks me out (a very common failure state for my skin) or over-dries, and …Read more

Jul/13/2016

I have thick, wavy, coarse-ish hair, and my daughter (age 6) has fine hair that curls in type 3a/b ringlets, and both respond very very well to New Wash, used as directed. I wish it were less expensive but I find it really works as advertised--including the bit about no need for conditioner, which I never thought would be true for either of us! We've been using it exclusively for the past …Read more

This eyeliner certainly is not what you want if you're looking for something super dark, super bright, or super opaque. But I think it's an absolutely beautiful, subtle color. It's purple enough to make my green eyes look greener, but not so purple that it looks costumey or un-grown-up. I like that it's sheer -- I have fair skin and black liner can look overdone on me very …Read more

Apr/04/2009

I have a hard time being responsible about wearing sunscreen because even the expensive and/or European lotions and creams that I have tried are all just too uncomfortable. Now I'm finally being good! This is the first sunscreen I've ever found that doesn't sting at all or leave my face feeling even a little bit smothered. It's true that it does seem a bit heavy going on, in …Read more

I have acne-prone and reactive, but not especially oily, skin. This is a fairly rich moisturizer that I like to use in the winter and/or when I am using other products that make my skin dry, flakey, and sensitive. For me, it's soothing and gentle, moisturizing, and a good complement to prescription or other exfoliants. While it doesn't make a heart-stopping dramatic difference to my …Read more

Jan/18/2009

For me, this is the ideal mascara. What makes it great is not so much what it does do as what it doesn't. It doesn't irritate my eyes in the slightest, it doesn't clump up like crazy, and it doesn't smudge or flake EVER. Mascara is hard for me. Without it my eyes look rather naked and feeble, but traditional mascaras, no matter how waterproof, give me raccoon eyes. I am …Read more

Nov/01/2008

Like many reviewers before me, I found the idea of this product more appealing than the reality. The muslin cloths are lovely, and the technique of massaging a rich, mineral-oil-based cleanser into the skin and then steaming and massaging it away is also very nice. I really felt that I was getting my skin clean without overdrying it, and the whole little ritual at the end of the day was very …Read more

Conditioner - L'Occitane - Olive Paste for Hair

Apr/20/2008

I got this as a re-gift from a friend who doesn't like to experiment with different shampoos and conditioners. I doubt I ever would have thought to try it on my own. It is nice, though -- makes my thick, bushy hair softer and less frizzy, and rinses clean, which is an unusual feature in an intensive conditioner. It doesn't do anything to make it less puffy/voluminous (which would be a …Read more

Apr/18/2008

I am on my second bottle of Sleeping Peel serum and continue to be very happy with the results. It does a brilliant job of keeping my naturally congested skin bright, clear, and makeup-optional. Blemishes are far, far less common for me now than they were even on prescription retinoids, and when they do appear, this seems to chase them off very quickly. It also has smoothed out a few bumpy rough …Read more
