Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Turnaround Overnight Revitalizing Moisturizer

This is one of the few moisturizers I can use on my very congestion prone combo aging skin. As a older woman I find it difficult to find anti aging moisturizers that don’t cause congestion and break outs so needless to say this is one of the few I’ve bought multiple times. My skin feels moisturized and soft, not occlusive. Yay!

I just picked up a sample at Nordstrom. The color (blonde?) and dewy finish look nice and there’s significant coverage but it felt occlusive. My skin is very prone to clogging so I’m weary of anything occlusive! However, I can’t deal with the perfume! It’s overpowering.

Even though I'm 49 I have oily skin with severe congestion - I'm not exaggerating, it's that bad. I completed a round of accutane years ago, so I don't have the break-outs, and my skin can't tolerate harsh products. I purchased this serum when it came out and noticed my skin improved gradually although I was travelling in a dry, harsh environment, which tends to improve …Read more

I found this in the sale bin at CVS for 25 cents, so of course I bought it. I read the entire tube and no where did it say 'non'comedogenic' which should have been a red-flag. I've only used it a few times, and as others have noted, it's somewhat oily feeling. It did apply nicely and had an even natural-looking coverage, but I fear it will cause congestion and break-outs …Read more

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this staple lip color - this is my daily pick over bbrown (too dry), nars (too dry or pigmented) ,mac (too bright except for summer), stila (too sheer) - I love all of these but won't wear them on a daily basis. I won't even list all of the lip products that I've discarded due to strange flavors or smells! This is easy-going …Read more

I searched far and wide for this product but sadly it didn't live up to my expectations; the finish of the product once it had set was just too chalky, which at 45 is not pretty. Again, the texture when applying was a creamy gel but once it set it appeared chalky. I've tried applying over a generous amount of eye cream as well as I hate to give-up on it's beautiful color!

Yikes ! Purchased this yesterday without reading the ingredients, and it's going back today. Fourth ingredient is the super-harsh detergent sodium lauryl sulfate, something you should never see in a salon product.

I purchased this 1.5 weeks ago for a summer trip in tropical central america- needed a darker foundation and didn't want to pay $$. I have combo skin that still breaks out with plenty imperfections to cover, but am getting too old (43) to wear matte formulas. This foundation has plenty of slip but doesn't feel greasy once applied. The finish is very natural, not cakey, and did well in …Read more

I have to agree with dumpling - I purchased this very expensive toner expecting more, much more. Sure it smells nice, and it's not drying, but that's about it. Not much different that my Beauty w/o Cruelty floral toner @$7 or Paula's toner for dry skin, which does seem to provide some hydration (just hate to pay postage).
