i think this is one of the best facial scrubs on the market, and often refer my clients to it. i mix it with a dime sized amount of cleanser when i use it to thin it out because the buffing grains are so fine (which any dermo or aesthetician worth their salt will tell you is what you want in a scrub) it can be really intense straight from the tube. using it this way i also double how long the …Read more

this hand cream seems hit or miss with most reviewers. i keep it on my night stand and apply to my hands and feet at night. its rich but not greasy which i find luxurious. my skin gets that dewiness from the formulation's quality humectants. the scent is very mild & french, like something clean & expensive. i love it because it doesn't linger just melts away. i hate hand creams …Read more

this is one of the best make up removers on the market. i have been using it for years. takes off the most stubborn waterproof mascara and totally clears your lips from the most intense red lipsticks. i soak 2 cotton pads and wipe over my entire face then flip them and hold over my eyes for a few seconds and gently wipe them. i follow with a gentle skin cleanser like cetaphil. i have recommended …Read more

this oil is crazy expensive, has a barely tolerable scent and is packaged to spoil (clear bottle) but despite all of that i really like this oil. it is light but very hydrating. after using it a few days in a row i did notice an improved texture to my skin and a dewiness. i mostly use it after a chemical exfoliant at night because it soaks right in and i happen to find it soothing to my skin. i …Read more

i have very dry skin and our freezing New England winters totally dehydrate my face causing more visible wrinkles, flaking and general awfulness. i have tried so many different creams. whether classics like aquaphor and egyptian magic which sit on my skin and some times clog my pores. or more high end intensive creams like la mer, la prairie cellular time release or erno laszlo hydraphel night …Read more

i have very dry skin and this is one of the few concealers that i have found that doesn't dehydrate my skin once applied. i wear it primarily to cover my genetic dark under eye circles but also around my nose, chin and the occasional blemish. i like that it can be easily blended out with a good brush or patted in for more coverage. its so very highly pigmented that a tiny amount goes a long …Read more

i had heard so much hype on this product i was very excited to try it. i had my color matched for me at the armani counter. the color right away seemed a tad orange for me but it was the best match they had. kind of disappointing for the price but my biggest problem is that is so drying on my skin. i do have very dry skin, and have to be very picky about my concealers. (I've been loving make …Read more
