I'm usually OK with the Complete Salon Manicure line, but this particular shade is difficult to apply evenly and it comes out streaky unless you apply thick layers.

The colour is a light creamy peach with micro shimmers; not my favourite but it could work for some people.

I love this stuff. I have pretty dehydrated skin but an oily forehead and I get some mild hormonal acne on my cheeks/jaw line. This product removes excess oil and product residue without stripping my skin. (I usually wear a light layer of BB cream for complexion and pretty much never have a full face of makeup - so I have not tested this as a makeup remover.)

I get that some people …

Moisturizers - NUXE - Creme Merveillance Expert Enrichie Rich Correcting Cream for Visible Lines (Dry to Very Dry Skin)

Aug/19/2015

The Merveillance Expert line replaces the older Merveillance line from Nuxe. The packaging has been updated to a sturdy, more practical plastic jar instead of glass.

The cream has been reformulated but feels mostly the same as the original. It is a thick, rich cream with a mild, vaguely floral scent. Due to the thicker texture, it may not spread as easily as other creams and may need …

I really like this for my extremely dehydrated skin. I use it day and night, through the summer. It sometimes isn't enough for me through the winter, but I am adding some lotion/serum steps so hopefully that will boost hydration. My dry eczema patches are definitely improved by this cream (though not eliminated - that would be a highly unreasonable expectation for me).

This …

Dry Shampoo - Klorane - Dry Shampoo with Nettle for Oily Hair and Scalp

I am reviewing the dry shampoo with nettle, for oily hair.

This product works pretty well, adds volume, and does a good job preventing the hair from getting greasy for the rest of the day. Virtually no scent. I didn't find the powder too difficult to comb out of my dark hair.

The problem is that there's not very much in the can, so it's actually really …

Cleansers - Avene - Cold Cream Ultra-Rich Cleansing Bar

Jan/05/2015

I like how this cleansing bar gently cleans without stripping the skin. I use this on my face with my Clarisonic brush. I'm not crazy about the smell but I don't mind it, it's pretty neutral and mild. This cleanser has never aggravated either my eczema or my acne.

Unfortunately, the bar absorbs water easily and is quite soft. After a while, it will begin to sink down and …

I really like how rich and moisturising this cream is. It feels luxurious going on and absorbs nicely and noticeably plumps my very dry skin.

The thing that makes me not want to buy again is the scent. When it first goes on, it is pretty strongly perfumed - which I don't like, even though it doesn't cause me any irritation - and the scent after it has been on (reacting with …

It moisturises nicely without weighing down my (fine, straight, untreated) hair. I like how it works. Unfortunately, I can't stand the scent. It has a warm, sweet, vanilla-like scent which is nice initially but really gets to be overpowering. Gives me a headache.

Very good intense moisturiser, leaves skin feeling plumper the next morning. The texture is like a thick but very smooth cream, feels luxurious. It is non-fragranced and non-irritating and does not clog my pores. Leaves a bit of an oily film on the skin in the morning, but it washes off easily. It really helps my eczematous skin get through the dry winter months. I like the hygienic packaging.
