A good AHA that is quite gentle, but it's still a lovely and excellent moisturizer! I've also used it on my face and it didn't clog me at all. Especially good as a body moisturizer in winter. Will continue to purchase. NOTE: Be sure to use a good sunscreen when using AHA's.

I don't believe in 'eye creams' and have always used whatever I had lying around including Aquaphor, argan oil, Nivea, mineral oil, etc. I got a generous sample of this and love it. It's hydrating yet has very little 'slip' so it works beautifully under makeup. When I use it at night, it helps reduce under eye puffiness slightly (note *slightly*, it's not a …Read more

Excellent stuff. For years I just used lots of Aquaphor after waxing to prevent those awful waxing breakouts on upper lip and brows. Now I use this before applying Aquaphor and it's even better. I'm so glad I came across this recipe, it's fantastic. Also good for spot treating blemishes. Uncoated aspirin is hard to find, so I just crush up regular ones with a mortar & …Read more

Moisturizers - Josie Maran Cosmetics - 100% Pure Argan Oil

Love this . Never tried argan before but I needed something to calm the weird heat rash and heat breakouts I've been getting, yet would not dry out my already dryish skin. My skin is beautifully moisturized and CLEAR with this!! Similar to mineral oil in that it doesn't totally sink into skin, you can feel a very slight filmy layer on it (but no where near as much as the MO). I use …Read more

Nice smelling and soothing gel. The Sephora sample I used did help reduce my under eye puffiness (I don't have dark circles). Surprisingly quite moisturizing, considering the ingredient list. It's no miracle product but I don't except it. This stuff is VERY expensive, so I would only purchase if I wanted to really treat myself. The texture is very light, non-greasy and …Read more

I usually have excellent results with AHA products from Avon, but my skin hates these things. There are so many extracts in the ingredient list! If your skin can handle the various extracts, the AHA component is great. Otherwise, beware. Try their AHA serums instead as they're gentle yet effective (although pricier).

If you usually need Clinical strength deo's and antiperspirants - like I do - then this is useless. Thank goodness I tested this on my day off!! No odor protection whatsoever - I was stinky within three hours. But my SO has been using these things for almost 2 years very successfully. One lasted almost a year and half for him. Basically, it's cheap enough to buy one from the …Read more

Excellent concealer. I'm NC20-25 and use Light, it's a very good match. I have bags under my eyes and this camouflages them well. My skin is normal-to-dry. This does not crease and it holds up in humid weather. In drier weather, it also holds up well without getting cakey. The clincher for me is the formula - it's a 'dryish' cream, so it glides on without tons of …Read more

Jun/17/2011

This is a very nice AHA and even though this has lots of extracts in it (which my skin usually doesn't tolerate) this works very well for me. It's a gel, so it's very light. If your skin doesn't tolerate richer cream formulations and you're looking for an effective AHA, this might be a good option for you. The price is steep though - there are cheaper AHA's out …Read more

This isn't a bad vitamin c serum if your skin can tolerate the citrus extracts in it. I do not have sensitive skin, yet this made my complexion ruddy. I had no breakouts at all, and this did feel nice on the skin. But ruddiness = irritation, so this is not for me. I'm going to try both NuFountain's vitamin c serums as well as a DIY version (both with very basic, minimal …Read more
