Styling Products - Davines - This is a Curl Building Serum

Feb/23/2017

So far, this seems great. My hair has been changing every year as I get older. It's gone from curly and frizzy and filled with body to wavy and kind of thin. I've had to change products every year, using less and less, lighter and lighter. This year it kind of went into shock and became dry and frizzy again, needing more moisture but nothing too heavy. This did the trick. It's …Read more

Styling Products - Davines - OI / All in One Milk

May/30/2016

This stuff is fantastic. I got a bottle as a gift with purchase last summer and immediately became hooked. It's the only thing I've found that smooths and defrizzes my wavy-curly hair in the summer without weighing it down. It leaves it shiny, bouncy and soft and I don't need too many styling products on top of it. The only problem is the smell which is really …Read more

Lipstick - Laura Mercier - Gel lip color

5.0

Apr/27/2014

I bought this in Clementine. It's a gorgeous color--a hot cool orange, if that's possible, that tweaks red. I have pale skin and freckles and am cool to neutral. It seems to brighten up my face in the most springlike way, and better than the LM glosses, it leaves a nice stain behind while also having a lush, not too shiny look when it's freshly applied. A great purchase. …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - VICHY - Liftactiv Serum 10 Eyes & Lashes

Apr/06/2014

I'm totally devoted to the regular Liftactiv serum (which completely eliminated a mark on my face) but I'm on the fence about this. I started using it because I felt my eyelids were looking a little crepe-y and I wanted something I could put all over the lid instead of just on the bone. I do think they're looking a lot moister (they didn't really look crepe-y, exactly, it …Read more

Hair - Ouidad - Double Detangler Comb

5.0

Apr/06/2014

This comb seems totally stupid--it's really heavy, and it's awkward to figure out where to store it because it's so big (I stack mine in the shower caddy). But I became fascinated by it and determined to try it out. Once I did, I was hooked. It slices through curly hair like nobody's business. In the shower with conditioner, it just eliminates any tugging or knots, and it …Read more

Hair Color - Unlisted Brand - Rita Hazan - root concealer

5.0

Sep/15/2013

This stuff is great. It matches my hair color (in light blonde), covers grays, and seems to stay put even when I rinse my hair and put conditioner in it (a necessity for us curly haired types who wash only once a week). I usually touch up my roots at 3 or 3 1/2 weeks and see my hairdresser every 5 or 6. I'm at 4 weeks and counting and I just don't feel the need. It's so much …Read more

Sep/07/2013

This stuff is amazing. I received a free bottle from someone and tried it somewhat skeptically. First, it felt great going on, with a lovely faint scent of sandalwood. Second, within a few weeks i realized it had started to fade a big red freckly mark that was really marring my complexion (which is otherwise fairly flawless). Now I'm on my second bottle and I can barely see the mark …Read more

Styling Products - AG Hair - Recoil Curl Activator

May/29/2013

Most of my life I've had fine, curly hair that frizzed terribly. Suddenly, over the last year, my hair has straightened out to e almost wavy, and I've been on a long road to try to figure out how to handle it. The kinds of products I used for years, like No Frizz, now tend to make it dank and sticky. And I have a new problem: instead of curling, the front of my hair gets wispy and …Read more

Moisturizers - VICHY - Aqualia Thermal Rich

5.0

Apr/05/2013

I was looking for a substitute for the Aqualia balm, which is theoretically being reformulated. It is lovely! A mild, almost nonexistent camomile-ish smell, and a soft creamy texture, like the long -gone Orlane sensitive skin night cream.

Moisturizers - VICHY - Aqualia Thermal UV SPF15/PPD18

I've been using the Aqualia balm for years and love it. So when I was in the market for a UV day cream, I decided to try this. It's lovely -- sort of a lighter-weight version of the balm, with SPF. It spreads and absorbs very smoothly, and makeup applies beautifully over it. One pump pretty much covers my face and my throat, Very happy.
