I started out liking this quite a bit. It volumized nicely, applied easily, and just about rinsed off with water at the end of the day. But after wearing it for several consecutive days, I noticed my eyes felt like there was *something* in them. They were irritated and it wouldn't go away. I switched back to an old standby mascara, and the irritation went away. Not sure what ingredient in …Read more

If I had to have just one oil, this would be it. I blend a few drops into whatever moisturizer I'm using at night, and somehow it becomes magical. My face is softer, smoother and more hydrated in the morning. It IS gaggingly expensive, but I made sure I bought it when sephora ran their pre-Christmas discount, so it didn't hurt quite as much. It's a nice blend of oils - it's …Read more

Wow... this is pretty amazing stuff. It is very moisturizing but not greasy, and I love the airless pump container. The only drawback is that the jar is kinda big, but I don’t hold that against it. Tarte hadn’t impressed me with skincare before, but this is a very nice night cream for me. I don’t get any fragrance from it and that’s a plus in my book. I hope it sticks around longer than most …Read more

I don't get the love for this. And I had a very different impression of this stuff than did a lot of others. To me, this *started* out thick, but almost instantly thinned out to a watery consistency and did exactly squat for my dry eye skin. I was really kind of astonished - this isn't what I thought it was going to be at all! It was so useless to me, I gave it away. Just goes to show …Read more

This works well to remove makeup and clean my skin. However I find it just a tiny bit drying, but not enough to not use it. It is a tad pricey for the size of the jar, but I found it on sale at Walgreens and bought 3 of the for about half price! Smells lovely, emulsifies readily and rinses cleanly. Speaking of rinsing, it does NOT have micro beads in it. Yes, it has polyethylene in it, but …Read more

This has been renamed "Green Defense" which is a shame, because I thought the name "Green Screen" was clever as yell. Farmacy assures us the ingredients are the same, the product was just renamed, and I think I believe them. I have a small sample of the Screen, and bought the full size Defense when it came out, and they feel and look the same to me. Anyway, this stuff rocks my …Read more

I just love this. It's a white floral with some vanilla undertones to it, at least on me and to my nose. I get zero coconut (which is good - not a fan of coconut scents). I have the oil roll on and its lasts and lasts on me. It's not a powerful in-your-face white floral; the sillage is rather soft (short? - not sure what the nominclature is) what I mean is it won't assault the …Read more

This is one of the few "meh" products I've encountered from Trader Joe's. It just doesn't moisturize - it's a dud. It soaks in surprisingly well given that petrolatum is so high up in the ingredient list (3rd ingredient, actually) but just doesn't do anything for me.It also leaves your skin feeling coated b/c dimenthicone is the 4th ingredient, but it's …Read more

I'm pretty much just going to second everything that NoBSBeauty said about this stuff! It's amazing under makeup - I've starting using it as a moisturizer/primer now that the weather's warmed up, and it works great for that. I know it won't be moisturizing enough when the weather turns cold again, but for now it's great! No white cast, it is *very* lightly …Read more

I love the smell of this, and I used it eons ago when my skin was just generally oilier than it is now. I bought some last year and have been using it, but I find it a bit drying and it makes me itch a little bit, so I'm going to stop using it. I wish it was made in a moisturizing version - I'd be all over that, but this is just a bit much for my skin now. I don't consider that the …Read more
