Moisturizers - SHISEIDO - White Lucent All Day Brightener SPF 22

Created with Sketch.

Apr/27/2015

Received this as part of a gift with purchase package. I am normally a fan of shiseido skincare products, so when I tried this product, I was sorely disappointed. The "all day brightener" effect is accomplished by infusing the moisturizer with tiny gold shimmer/glitter into the cream itself. Sometimes when I wipe my face with tissue, you can see the shimmer/glitter on the tissue. I …Read more

Sunscreen - Ducray - Melascreen Creme Solaire SPF 50+

LOVE. Has a PPD of 16 which is great for daily wear. Also, for my dry skin, it provides adequate moisturization and does not make my skin feel tight or accentuate any flakies, which is a huge plus. Cream goes on invisible and does not ball up nor does it turn me into a greaseball by lunchtime. Unfortunately this item is incredibly hard to find in the US. If I ever find this available for …Read more

YUCK. This moisturizer has the most hideous sickly looking yellow tint. On my NW20-25 face, it makes me look a bit jaundiced when I use this. Additionally, I purchased this b/c it was a moisturizer and sunscreen-in-one, but I did not find this was good for moisturizing for my dry skin at all. About a minute into application, I feel an intense need to smear a new layer of another moisturizer …Read more

Moisturizers - VICHY - Nutrilogie 1

I'm a fan. I used this product over this winter and it has really moisturized my very usual dry face in the winter. It's a very basic moisturizer with no extras like SPF, anti-oxidant, scent, or special ingredients; I think because of this, it really decreases its potential to be irritating and was fantastic for me.

Original price is $30, so it's a little steep for a …

Lotions/ Creams - BIODERMA - Atoderm Repairing Hand Cream

1.0

Feb/13/2013

Sorely disappointed. I have great love for other Bioderma products, especially their sunscreens, and was hoping this hand cream would be high quality. Instead, when applied, it leaves a sticky tacky feeling on your hand that never goes away until you wash it. Also, I purchased the blue bottle online and apparently that means it’s the “perfumed formula”. The perfume smells absolutely atrocious …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Deborah Lippmann - Steppin' Out Nourishing Foot Cream

I got a sample packet of this and I am amazed. I have used a lot of different food and hand creams and this is one of the more moisturizing ones. It makes your feet feel soo smooth. Also, the cream smells like cake batter. I looked up the price for a tube and turns out it's $34 for 5.2oz, so it's quite on the pricey side for foot cream, but it does work pretty well. If I feel like …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - M2 Skincare High Potency Skin Refinish 20%

Jan/11/2012

This is almost HG status for me. For me personally, I can see results from this product (mandelic acid) faster than using glycolic acid or retinoids.

Had a few clogged pores as well as tiny bits of acne scarring. I used it for maybe 5 consecutive nights and this product was able to resolve the problem.

I applied at nighttime after washing my face. The M2 has a very …

Moisturizers - SHISEIDO - Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Day Emulsion SPF 15

$52 for a super cute 2.5oz bottle. When you open the cap, the pump part is a super pretty pale pink/peach shimmery color, but that's about where the good stuff ends for me.

They call it a day emulsion, which really means moisturizer. There is a light hint of a fragrance, but it's not overpowering or offensive. I found it moisturizing enough in the winter even for my dry …

I was pretty sure I saw this lip balm featured in some magazine a few years ago but I never saw it sold. Today, I was browsing a local fancy drugstore and happened to see it. Purchased it on an impulse and what a lucky buy. I am loving it a lot. Smells good and most importantly, it is moisturizing and lasts a long time. Would love to try more of this line's product.

$19 for …

I love typically love most La Roche Posay skincare products and therefore have been trying their lip treatments as well. I have tried their Ceralips, Nutritic, and their sunscreen lip balms and not have impressed me at all.

This Nutritic lip balm came as a value set with a body lotion I purchased. It's separate purchase price is $14, pretty steep for a drugstore lipbalm. …
