Moisturizers - MAC Cosmetics - Complete Comfort Creme

Oct/30/2015

This one is a keeper! A moisturizing cream that is soothing to my sensitive, parched skin, lasts all day and isn't greasy. I wouldn't have considered MAC for skincare (I think of it as a makeup line) but I got this about a month ago based on the reviews from here and I'm glad I did because this stuff is nothing short of magnificent.

My skin is COMPLICATED: dehydrated …

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Sea Buckthorn Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2014

So glad I read these reviews and gave sea buckthorn oil a try... I've been using it for a couple of weeks -- patting it on my face after cleansing at night -- and I LOVE it. It immediately calms my skin and I wake up with completely comfortable, supple skin... And this is from someone who has uber-sensitive skin -- dehydrated, with rosacea... It completely brought it back into balance. I …Read more

Moisturizers - Sukin - Moisture Restoring Night Cream

Okay, I've only been using this for a few days but I had to write as this cream is DIVINE... The texture feels whipped and gorgeous (without being sticky... it's kind of hard to describe...) and the smell is wonderful - light and fresh and not perfumey at all... Very natural. But it's when I wake up after using it the evening before that I am most impressed: I have rosacea .. …Read more

Moisturizers - BIODERMA - Sensibio Rich Dry/Very dry skin

Nov/15/2013

I went to SDM with the sole purpose of finding something to relieve my dehydrated skin (I just upped my retinol percentage...)... I was thinking I would buy Moisture Surge (Clinique) or one of La Roche Posay's products... But this was on sale so I gave it a try.

It's only been a few days (I will update if necessary) but I LOVE it so far. The consistency is gorgeous …

Cleansers - NUXE - Cleansing Milk with 3 Roses (Lait Demaquillant aux 3 Roses)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/12/2013

Used this for a few weeks and loved it at first -- let's face it, the smell is spectacular and it feels like a treat. However, it just wasn't right for my skin (sensitive, dehydrated yet oily.) It ended up feeling tight in spots after use and I even had a few little breakouts.

I'll use this up in the shower on my decolletage and arms but won't purchase …

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

Rec'd a sample of this in a SDM promo and have fallen for it, big-time. I have very sensitive skin (rosacea) and this doesn't irritate it at all. I use it with my Olay brush and my skin feels clean -- but not tight in any way -- after use. Prefer it to the Nuxe cleanser (rose) I've been using and my old standby, Cetaphil.

I plan to buy a full size as soon as this …

My hair has never felt so clean and light! And the smell is wonderful. The ultimate inter-generational shampoo -- my teen daughter uses it, as does my mother! It gives us all a two-day clean, even with workouts...!

Conditioner - LUSH - American Cream

Sep/10/2012

I wanted a conditioner with no obesogens and thought of Lush because I used to use their products when I was younger...

Well, this conditioner is amazing! The smell is divine (I am seriously addicted to it and wish they'd come out with a soap with the same scent!) As another reviewer said, it doesn't feel all that wonderful when you put it on but afterwards, my hair was …

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Ultra Sun block lotion SPF 50

Jun/19/2009

Tried MANY sunscreens over the years, drugstore and beyond... But hated the greasy look that came with most of them, regardless of the cost (Clarins, La Roche Posay -- so disappointing!) But, since finding this one last year, it's become my top pick... Does not leave my skin greasy at ALL, protects it well (I spent a month last summer in Florida and my skin was soooo comfortable!) and …Read more
