Treatments (Eye) - Avon - Anew Clinical Eye Lift

4.0

Jun/07/2006

I am picky.. very picky.. about eye creams. First off, I am 47 so you gotta be on the ball by then (though I began eye cream at age 12). I have large bags under my eyes (puffy) and have since I was a young girl, so it's just the way I am made. I'd prefer dark circles.. easier to fix.. but no, this is impossible. Which brings me to Avon's Anew Clinical Eye Lift.. I had high …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - CLARINS - Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate

1.0

May/14/2006

Biggest scam I've run across. This is formulated, so they say, for women of a certain age (read: older), and they seem to think it's especially great for those who are entering menopause, etc., but I have no idea WHY! I am 47, my skin is in decent shape, but this did NOTHING under my eyes. Nothing! It felt so dry after using it. I had a generous sample.. enough for about 12-15 uses. …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - CLARINS - Extra-Firming Eye Contour Cream

May/14/2006

What a disappointment. I applied it while shopping locally but they didn't have samples. It felt like it was a cream that would be effective in keeping my undereye area hydrated and offer as much protection as one would expect at 47, but once I bought it, I am regretful. Ok, I bought it on eBay so who really knows if it is the "real thing," right? But it seems to be (I recognize …Read more

Just so you know, this is the same thing as Extra firming Eye Contour Cream. Both pumps show the "Anti-Rides" (Anti-Wrinkle or line?) on it.

It's a great little cream and after extensive sampling, it is coming home to mama.

Masks - SHISEIDO - Purifying Mask

5.0

Jan/25/2006

Dang good masque! I used to use Queen Helene's mask and loved it, but that was back in my teens/early-20s when the drying aspects of it were okay by me. Now I like something effective but gentler on my skin and this mask delivers such. I like the smell.. kind of a nice aromamatic sensation while you wait to rise it off. It does not hard and cracky like Queen Helene's, either, I should …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Lumene - Age-Defying Night Care

4.0

Nov/20/2005

I like this. If I give my face a good washing and put this on lightly, my face just glows. It's a bit rich, but I like that in the cool months (as in now). It claims to have retinol in it, which is super hard to find here in Sweden, so that is why I bought it. I am pretty sure it's a very low dose of retinol because there is no burning/reddening/irritation at all. It just gives me very …Read more

Fragrances - J. Lo - Miami Glow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/25/2005

I put the regular Glow up to my nose and went, nehhh, but sprayed the Miami Glow into the air and though, Ohhh nice. And it is! In fact, I am addicted to this stuff right now (July). I can see myself wearing it all year-round, personally, since I don´t place limitations on things like, Oh you can only wear vanilla in the winter! or Oh you can't wear a tropical scent in the cool months. Sure …Read more

Toners - SHISEIDO - Shiseido Pureness Skin Purifying Water

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2004

It´s a toner, and it´s by far the best toner I have ever used. $30 bucks a pop for the bottle, but worth it and I am a tightwad these days when it comes to skincare. I´d been trying to cheap out by balancing between L'Oreal Pure Zone (I´m oily during summer) and Nivea Alcohol-Free toner (contains castor oil, like most of the lower-end alcohol-free toners) but I wasted my time and money. Had …Read more

Scrubs - CLINIQUE - Exfoliating Scrub

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2004

This is has been a scrub I have come back to again and again over the year--many years. My mom used it when I was a teen and I would use it then and adored the fresh, smooth feeling it gave me. Well here I am, 45 yrs old, and still get terrific results from the scrub! I use it about 1x every 2 weeks because I do chemical exfoliation, too, but this one just makes me feel so cleaned, deep down …Read more
