Conditioner - Bumble and bumble - Creme de Coco Conditioner

Sep/19/2005

I have read some of the other reviews and I really think that this product either works for you, or doesn't.

I have really thick, coarse, color-treated hair, and hardly any conditioner works to detangle and make it feel silky. The only bumble conditioner that ever worked for me previously was Super Rich - Alojoba, Seaweed, they all worked terribly and felt like there had been …

My favorite mascara is Dior Show, and this mascara seems a little bit less dramatic. It does have a clean application, not clumping at all, but I find that it tends to flake a little bit, especially if you like to curl your lashes gently after the mascara dries. This stuff looks better when used with a primer (i use smashbox lash primer) - but doesn't provide as much volume as Dior Show …Read more

Treatments (Face) - La Prairie - Cellular Hydrating Serum

Mar/10/2005

I use this serum over the LP desensitizing serum, and the results are great for me. I have normal/combination skin which gets dry patchy areas in the winter, but doesn't react well to moisturizers that are too rich. The combination of these two products helps to ease the irritation and dryness and keep my face moisturized all day. In fact, since I've started using this combo, tiny …Read more

This stuff is friggin incredible. I moved onto this stuff to use as a base for my makeup after I ran out of the Shu Uemura UV Foundation foaming base.

The other reviewers were right - you only need the tiniest bit - i just put a tiny dab on the back of my non-application hand and spread it over my face. It makes the face feel so silky and smooth, and makes makeup application really …

Jun/27/2004

I have normal/combination skin that can be sensitive, reacting badly to creams that are too rich by sprouting little skin-colored bumps. At the same time, my skin can feel too tight and dry if I don't use moisturizer.

This lotion is meant to be a protective daytime moisture lotion, but I use it day and night over one of LP's serums. The texture is light, but still rich, and …

Moisturizers - La Prairie - Cellular Night Repair Cream Face, Neck, Decollete [DISCONTINUED]

Jun/27/2004

I use La Prairie Cellular Night Repair cream over the LP desensitizing serum at night. I am 26 years old, and have combination/normal skin.

Overall, I have nothing bad to say about this moisturizer - my skin tends to reject creams that are too heavy or rich, and this one is just barely a little too rich for me. The reason I give it a 3 is because when I wake up in the morning, I …

Lotions/ Creams - La Prairie - Cellular Hand Cream

5.0

Jun/24/2004

I received a sample of this from the La Prairie counter, and was struck by how great this hand cream is.

It has a light texture, and only a little is needed. It sinks in very quickly without leaving a greasy or slippery coating, and when I put this on at night, I wake up and my hands are soooo unbelievably soft and smooth.

Unfortunately, it's a bit pricey for hand …

oh. my. gawd. is all i have to say about this product.

the reason i bought it was because i had tried samples of sisley's ecological compound + tropical resins complex, and had gotten itchiness and burning on my face as a result. in addition, i'm 26 years old and feel as if my skin is undergoing a transition phase, where it's not as smooth as it used to be, is bumpier …

Moisturizers - Sisley-Paris - Ecological Compound

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/13/2004

I got a sample of this and tried it daily and nightly for about a week. At first, I noticed that my skin was really soft, but after a few days, I started noticing that the area around my jawline was burning and itchy, and my skin had little bumps on it.

This product is lightweight and feels great on the face, but isn't deep moisturizing. I guess it would be better for …

Jun/09/2004

I'm not sure if this listing is for the Botanical Night Cream with Collagen and Woodmallow, but that's what I'm reviewing, so here goes...

I got this cream upon recommendation from Sisley's website, based on questions on my skin type and problems. I bought this cream at Saks, and went home to try it.

I was sadly disappointed. I am 26 years old, with …
