Moisturizers - Pond's - Dry Skin Cream

I’ve been using this for several years now and it is such great value for the money. I have dry sensitive skin and I use this at night before bed. It’s so satisfying because it feels as though it provides both oil-moisture and water-moisture, if that makes sense? It feels like my skin is gulping down a big glass of ice water and I haven’t gotten that feeling from any other product. This is …Read more

Cleansers - BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

This is the first micellar water I’ve tried and I am totally sold. I often dislike having to take my makeup off with cleanser and water at bedtime. It’s just a pain. Cleansing wipes don’t seem to do a very thorough job and they seem wasteful. This.... this, though, is as easy as it gets. One tiny cotton pad, a few shakes of this stuff to wet it, swipe my face and OH MY WORD the amount of …Read more

I must be on my third or fourth tin. This is a really practical, pretty, lightweight petroleum balm. It doesn’t stay on too long but there’s so much product it will still last you for years. I love the old school packaging and scent, although the tin can be hard to open.

If you leave this balm in a warm car or similar situation, the balm will melt easily and when it cools down it …

Primer/ Corrector - CHANTECAILLE - Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Primer

This primer uses a chemical sunscreen. I knew from my prior disappointment with the EltaMD line of sunscreens that I have a bad reaction to this type of sun protection, so when the SA really wanted to demo this on me under some other products I protested. She talked me into it (why did I let her??), applied it, and gave me a small sample to take home. After that day I saw the beginnings of a …Read more

For a long time, I was very devoted to the Cle de Peau concealer stick. I loved the full coverage and longevity. Lately though (I just turned forty) it seemed to really point out every single bump, pore, and crease under my eyes, and was so so dry.

This was the next product I tried. I use Alabaster in the Future Skin foundation, so the SA felt I could use either shade 1 or shade 2 …

This review is for the LE holidays 2019 shade “Ecstatic” available at Blue Mercury.

I’ve avoided cream or gel blushes in the past because I felt they were difficult to apply well. Now that I’m forty the common advice seems to be that cream formulas apply better than powder, and I’m in the middle of a love affair with CHANTECAILLE, so I took the plunge and picked up the holiday 2019 LE …

This tinted moisturizer gives surprising coverage. I can build it to cover about as well as my ride or die HG CHANTECAILLE Future Skin gel foundation, just with a dewier finish, or I can apply less to just even out skin tone. I usually knock back the shine a bit with translucent powder over the T zone. The packaging is extremely convenient, travel friendly, and offers a good amount of product …Read more

I am on my second or third jar (it lasts such a long time it’s hard to remember). Alabaster is a perfect match for me. The magic of this product is that you can’t tell it’s on, you just look like your parents mated with an angel and you inherited such amazing skin from your celestial forebears. I have dry skin (but otherwise very good) and I take care to moisturize and prime before dotting …Read more

I’m on my second bottle of this oil. I have dry skin and very few moisturizers of any sort will actually have any sort of lasting impact - this does. After I let it soak in for a while, it helps my foundation go on more smoothly. The scent is a pleasant, light floral and the texture is a thick rich oil that you can spend several moments massaging into your skin. The bottle lasts forever as …Read more
