I love love love this stuff. I get the gigantic bottle from Costco and keep it in my shower. I turn off the water and just lather myself with this. It works wonders for dry skin and ingrown hair, both of which are a problem for me. I also coat my feet with it, and it helps keep my toes looking pedicure-fresh.

This is one of the best pharmacy finds out there.

I love this moisturizer. It's basic, inexpensive, and really good quality. Before I started using this as my daytime moisturizer, I was primarily using the much more expensive Sunday Riley Skin Adrenaline. I prefer this one, and I'm not one to balk at paying for a good product.

When I first started using it, my skin was mildly reactive. Tiny little red spots, no …

Oh man, I love this stuff so much. I am having a minor heart attack because I'm starting to get to the end and I can't find it in stores or online. I will freak out if it's discontinued because this stuff is perfection for your skin. Literally every time I wear it my husband tells me I look great and glowy, unprompted. Guerlain, do not mess with me! I need this in my life.

I knew I was going to love this stuff, long before I ever smelled it. I just knew, despite the many negative reviews I've seen. On me, this is musky and feminine with deep and strong oud and vanilla notes. I detect no sweet florals, which is good because I usually hate them. I also don't find that it is overly strong, but wears into the skin with a natural warmth that brings to mind …Read more

P50! I could literally write songs about this stuff. Let me take you through my skin makeover miracle instead. (Note, this is pretty much identical to the review I wrote for Alpah H Liquid Gold. I can only be so creative, people.)

P50 is a miracle. A MIRACLE! If they made this stuff illegal, I'd sell my kidney on the black market for a supply.

That being said …

I am obsessed with this stuff, and P50. This stuff is fantastic, but I firmly believe that it's a full routine including it that has made the difference for me. Several months ago, I started having horrendous acne. I tried everything, including the full Somme Institute line and Retin-A. My skin kept getting worse. After many, many hours of research I found the perfect routine that has …Read more

Mascara - CHANTECAILLE - Faux Cils Mascara

Apr/24/2013

I guess mascara is just one of those personal things. I love this stuff. What I am looking for in a mascara is something that will hold a curl without drooping, give lots of length and separation. I want crazy long lashes with no clumping, and this is why I usually hate mascaras that claim to be volumizing. I like to preserve the illusion that maybe - just maybe - those lashes are all mine …Read more

I was really excited to try the Somme line. I know this section is just for Transport, but I used the entire line so I'm going to review it all here.

First of all, I haven't really seen a whole lot of positive change, and it's been over a month. What I have seen, however, is massive endless breakouts. I'm talking cystic acne, here. And while I typically get …

Like wearing a mist filter on my face! Before trying Chantecaille, I was devoted to Laura Mercier. I still love Mercier, but I was looking for just a bit more coverage and a little something extra to give me a glow. I've tried BB creams and foundations, and they are just too heavy for my liking. On a whim, I tried this product and I am never going back! Worth every penny.

Mascara - Isehan - Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl and Super Waterproof Mascara

Mar/23/2012

This mascara is the best! Ever since the demise of Shu Uemura Basic, I have been searching everywhere for a mascara that would provide extreme lengthening, won't get clumpy and will hold a curl like nobody's business. This is it! It's not as layerable as my beloved Shu, but it looks fantastic and wears all day long. Personally, I detest volumizing mascaras. I like a long …Read more
