I have been using this for at least 20 years. Do I need to say more? I guess I could:-)

As a reference, I have sensitive, combo, occasional zits, oily noise with moderately open pores. I like to give this as the review really depends on our skin canvas.

How do I use this:
After cleansing in the shower. I am using Dermalogica Special Gel Cleaner at the moment.
Sometimes …

Cleansers - Dermalogica - Special Cleansing Gel

3 months ago

Entering the 40s came with skin changes calling for reassessing my cleansing needs.
That sums up my face cleaning mid life crisis and this was rapidly solved with the introduction of this cleansing gel.

For a reference, I do NOT use: heavy foundation or waterproof mascara. I use make-up lightly: eyeshadow, blush, tinted cream.
I use this cleaner with clarisonic or foreo. It …

Product reviewed: Marc Jacobs O!mega Gel Powder Eyeshadow in color DADDI-O My rating: A

In short: I love it, yes I would rebuy it...I probably will in 2 years when I am done going through it:) Excellent value. Twice the size of a normal eyeshadow...I like to work with one basic color, in and out of the bathroom in the morning so it is PERFECT and quite a good deal! Super good quality …

Tinted Moisturizer - CHANEL - Les Beiges Sheer Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 / PA++

Yes! yes! Oui!

Coverage and overall impression:
Light and luminous coverage without looking like a disco ball. I don’t find it irritating on my combo sensitive skin and it harmoniously dissipates the redness. Pores, marks and dark spots are lightly visible but diffused by the reflecting property of titanium dioxide and ever so microscopic sparkles, visible only to the neurotic …

I have been using this for one year. I love it because I only apply it where I need it! It is impossible to detect when nicely blended. I use my fingers after I moisturize. I am NC20 and use 20 Beige. Perfect perfect match, from winter to summer. It has a typical compact texture that spreads very easily.

LONG TIME USER of this product. I have sensitive combo skin and live in warm weather. It has a smell that is surprisingly not irritant and dissapear quickly. It's a fluid with a certain thickness, definitely not ultra light which I appreciate since it does moisturize. No need in my case to add a moisturizer, so in that regards, it is economical. It has a subtle sheen due to the …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Estée Lauder - Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator [DISCONTINUED]

I won't go in too much details as the product is now discontinued. I am on my 3rd purchase so it is a winner for my sensible combo, zits here and there skin type. I don't wear foundation so this was perfect because it gives a subtle glow. The citrusy smell doesn't linger too long...not ideal for sensitive skin.
Texture: light, non slippery, not too silicony, feels like …

I completely agree with the previous review from LPomona, well said and thank you for breaking the ice!

Same comments applies in term of perfect match for my relatively fair skin (NC20ish) and a much better match than the color ivory.

I use this instead of foundation and only in the corners of my eyes, to conceal redness and some skin tone discolorations. I like the 100% …

Texture: lightweight silicony
Smell: odorless…well it smells like vitamin C…nothing lasting

I have sensitive, combo, occasional zit skin, and this is a miracle worker for my uneven skin tone. Got rid of acne marks and brightened my skin.

The product must be use at night only and as the last step of the skin care regimen. Product must be patted and not rubbed on the …

I am on my second bottle so yes: I love it and recommend it!
It has a sticky, jelly-ish, granuled texture with no perfume. The smell is not unpleasant to me. Peel smell.
If it's your first time, follow the instructions but my experience is that leaving it longer, 15 minutes, gives me better results: smooth, even skin. You need a small amount, a bottle lasts me 10 months with a …
