Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment

Aug/05/2017

I've been using this retinol since the start of the year and have noticed a huge difference! I have VERY sensitive skin and it's hard for me to find anything that works, so this is huge. I started slowly--1x per week and now use almost every night, before bed. I apply after washing, wait a few minutes, then Vanicream moisturizer on top. (Yes, very dry skin too.)
It has evened out …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST C15 Super Booster

Apr/16/2016

This product does work as advertised--my skin is visibly brighter and smoother the day after I use it. Unfortunately I found this serum much too irritating for my skin. Yes, it looks better initially, but I believe the vitamin C causes an allergic, eczematic, reaction. (I have the same reaction if I eat too many citrus fruits.)
However, I have had no problems using it on my decolletage or …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster

My skin loves this oil! I have very dry, sensitive (rosacea/eczema) skin, and this is one of the very few that doesn't immediately cause a reaction. I don't use it as a standalone product, but add it to skin creams and sunscreens to add extra moisture. And the dropper is perfect for dispensing the precise amount without overdoing it.
Perfect

Moisturizers - Vanicream - Moisturizing Skin Cream

Jul/13/2015

I have extremely sensitive, dry skin--with exzema and rosacea. Just about everything causes it to break out, even Cerave and Cetaphil didn't work. On a whim I tried Vanicream and WOW!!! It really works! Does not burn or sting--even if my skin is raw and itchy. I can slather it on and it sinks in nicely, and since it's so inexpensive relative to the amount you get, I definitely …Read more

Hair Color - Clairol - Nice 'n Easy Perfect 10

Jul/13/2015

This hair color is fantastic! Fell into a panic when I stopped seeing it in stores, but when it recently appeared on shelves again at Target I bought all the boxes in my color. I have been coloring my hair my entire life, since I first started turning grey in college. My greys are now plentiful and VERY resistant. This is the only hair color that consistently covers the grey completely and still …Read more

Styling Products - TIGI - Catwalk Curls Rock Curl Amplifier

Jul/13/2013

After years of flat-ironing my color-treated hair (it's normally coarse grey), I decided to go natural to minimize further damage, since I don't intend to stop coloring anytime soon! Normally this results in a mound of frizz. But after experimenting with a few styling products, and a good cut to 'release' my curls (I told my stylist I wanted to go natural), this product was …Read more

Moisturizers - BORGHESE - Age-Defying Restorative Night Cream

5.0

This review is for Kirkland/Borghese. Great moisturizer at a great price! Love that it's unscented and does not irritate my super-sensitive and dry skin. Will definitely repurchase. Only downside is packaging--comes in a jar (an unnecessarily oversize one at that), rather than a pump or tube, as the other Kirkland/Borghese products do.

BB Cream - L'Oreal Paris - Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream

Oct/10/2012

Purchased Fair and LOVE the way it looks on my skin, initially. BUT, over time it seems to dry out and accentuate dry patches--my skin feels tight and dry. (This is AFTER I layer on antioxident serum and sunscreen first.)
Not the best for dry skin. I love the light coverage; just wish it were more moisturizing.

Primer/ Corrector - L'Oreal Paris - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

5.0

Apr/22/2012

I love this primer! I actually use it in place of eye shadow, for a natural everyday look. It smoothes out the dark areas and uneven tones on my eyelid, and takes out the shine. It doesn't settle into creases over the course of the day, as eye shadow normally would, and when I wear it, my mascara doesn't leave smudges all over my eyelids. Perfect!!

Crème - L'Oreal Paris - magic smooth souffle [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/22/2012

I tried this on a whim and like it more than I thought I would. I was interested in it primarily as a light coverup for undereye circles (most coversticks are heavy and greasy, and I don't like a heavy makeup look--I have dry skin and even a light application looks obvious). I was pleasantly surprised! It covers and blends lightly without pulling or tugging, and the color blends surprisingly …Read more
