Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment

I bought the travel size first, used it and loved it so I bought the full size
Well the formula must be different because it burned the crap out of my face. Also caused a breakout and I rarely break out. It felt greasy on my skin and this morning my face is beet red and burning. Be careful using this stuff, it’s no joke

I bought this but never really used it. I bought it with the Bye Bye redness cream which I just love. I decided to use it after I watched a tutorial youtube vid about highlighting powders. I applied it with a fluffy brush sparingly across my cheeks and forehead after my regular makeup routine. Looked in the mirror and thought I looked pretty good but I'm in my 50's and my eyesight up …Read more

If I could only use one make up product before leaving my house, this would be it. This stuff is awesome. It covers my red chin and nose better than anything I have ever used. It makes my skin look amazing. Its not greasy or cakey and doesn't settle into my pores. Lasts all day and does not cause any breakouts or clogged pores. I use this alone. I have never tried any foundation over it …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - CSI Vitamin C + 12% Youth Serum

I had to stop using this after about 2 weeks. My face broke out like crazy and was very blotchy. This serum is also very oily and sort of just sits on top of your skin. It only has 2 ingredients, butylene glycol and L-ascorbic acid, so I thought it would work on my oily, acne prone skin. I have used other Vit C products and have not had problems with breakouts like with this product.

I usually love Derma e products so I was happy to find this in the sale bin at Ulta. I'm really weird about trying new stuff on my face because its so sensitive and acne prone. I decided to try it on my neck first because I can use about any product there with no problems. Woke up in the middle of the night with my neck on fire. Red welts everywhere. It has taken a week for my neck to get …Read more

I bought this to use in my hair. I read in some magazine that if you put it in your shampoo it will amp up the shine if you color your hair .Well, I color my hair (for gray) and highlight it. This combination was amazing. My hair has never looked better. Mega shine and lots of body. My hair actually looks healthy, instead of fried, This was the best beauty tip ever!

I hated this stuff. My hair is really dry, frizzy and highlighted. This stuff made my hair stiff , crunchy and more dry, if thats possible. I thought maybe I had just used too much, so when I used it the next time I only used a teeny amount. Still made my hair sticky and dry. I know its gotten good reviews but it just didn't work for me.

I have only been using this eye cream for a couple of weeks. The woman at Saks just kept raving about it, like it was a miracle treatment. What can I say, I'm a sucker. I also noticed that it wasn't very hydrating and my undereyes felt tight in the morning. When I looked at the ingredient list, alcohol was the 6th or 7th ingredient.. To me Alcohol denat is never a good thing in your eye …Read more
