We stock up on this product at home. I use this as my second cleanser in my 2-part routine, which includes an oil cleanser to remove makeup, and the Purity to clean everything else up. This stuff has helped my girls control their acne, while keeping their skin from drying out. So we have the huge bottles at home.

Crème - COVERGIRL - Cover Girl & Olay Facelift Effect Firming Foundation

Dec/11/2014

The reviews are so mixed with this one. It's pretty pricey for a drugstore foundation, but it works for me. In fact, between this and the Simply Ageless cream foundation, I am set. If I want heavier coverage, I use the Simply Ageless. If I want a moisturizing, light coverage that makes me look as if I don't have any makeup on, this is it. I find that it looks very natural, and it covers …Read more

Moisturizers - L'Occitane - Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Cream

My normal Korres Wild Rose moisturizer, while great, was not quite enough for when my skin was really dry during the winters. I just had to use too much to get the right affect. Since I love the hand cream in this line, I decided to try the face cream. Best stuff for winter skin. Despite the thick, buttery, creamy texture, it absorbs well into my skin. I think the entire shea line from …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

This is by far the best hand cream for me. I love the scent, it is rich but not greasy, and lasts longer than other hand creams I've used. I've gone through so many tubes of this, several of the small tubes a year in my purse, and a large one in the home. A little pricey, but worth it.

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

I use cleansing oil to remove my foundation, followed by another cleanser, and it has kept my face feeling very nice. I love the idea of a cleansing butter, so I went out to buy this from TBS during one of their great sales. I love this! It feels luxurious during the dry winter months, and is less messy to deal with than oil, which can drip. I'm not happy about the tin. I don't …Read more

Crème - COVERGIRL - + Olay Simply Ageless 3-In-1 Liquid Foundation

I'm surprised this foundation is not on the list yet. This has to be one of the best drugstore creme foundations on the market. I have sensitive skin with lots of blemishes and rosacea, and this foundation provides full coverage without looking cakey. One of the colors they carry also just happens to fit my skin tone rather well (I'm about NC25 and use #230 Classic Beige). It's …Read more

Fragrances - L'Occitane - Voyage en Mediterranee Mimosa de L`Esterel MIMOSA

I've not sniffed mimosa flowers, though I've sampled several mimosa scents. I just find this one weak, and for some reason, turns a little sour on me. I would think that someone with the right skin chemistry would really turn this one into a beauty, but I didn't really like this on paper, either.

Fragrances - L'Occitane - Peach Blossom EDT

I like this one quite a bit. It's a fresh candy peach blossom, but not really sweet or cloying, if that makes any sense. This one works well on me. Pity it is discontinued, but I'm sure one can still find it online.

I couldn't wear this scent. I can see where it would work on someone with the right chemistry, but it just turned on me. It's got a very artificial quality that turns worse on my skin. I don't smell much in the way of roses. It's fruit and floral.

This is definitely a scent I would keep in the refrigerator for a refreshing blast on hot days. It is sweet (probably the freesia), with just a hint of rose. I actually would give this one a 3.5 rather than a 3, because I do like it. It's a cologne, so it's not very long lasting or strong, but it is perfect for the size and price.
