I like this line from Mary Kay and use 3 of the 4 products (I have a different eye cream). The cleanser is great and I love the night cream - not too heavy. The day cream is OK but the SPF is a bit whitish. You can get the day cream without SPF and I like it more but then again, no SPF. See if your Mary Kay lady can cut you a deal. She is getting her stuff for 50% off most likely.

Champagne toast is back in 2019!!! Comes in lotion, shower gel or body mist and we just love the sweet and effervescent qualities of this festive scent. Inexpensive and not the world's finest quality but for the price? It's terrific.

I have actually really like MK's Ultimate mascara. It is not irritating and does not flake off. Black. Basic. Not too clumpy - can cause moderate clumping if the product gets old so cap tightly. Adds some volume, no real lengthening for me. $18 retail circa 2019. MK changes products all the time and as of 2019 offers 4 different formulas of mascara (all in black and a few in …Read more

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cream Cleanser

Nothing wrong with this dermatologist-approved, gentle cleanser. Got a free sample tube at my derm's office. No scent - perhaps a slight bit medicinal/chemical - and low foaming. Removes most makeup and is an effective daily cleanser (I have dry skin) that does not seem too drying.

Lotions/ Creams - CeraVe - Itch Relief Moisturizing Lotion

1 month ago

I got a free sample from my dermatologist. No scent to speak of - possibly a tad medicinal? Medium weight lotion, soothing, non-irritating. I did not need itch-relief but I suppose it will work for this purpose. Used it as "regular" lotion for my legs and arms. No issues.

Hair - Redken - Curvaceous Curl Dive Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Curl Dive is halfway between a conditioner and a mask. It is richer than most conditioners and a bit light for a true mask. I like the smell (a bit of sandalwood?) but some do not. It is not cheap - about $30 for the 6 oz. pot/jar. It is marketed for thirsty curls - but I use it on the ends of my fine, straight hair as a twice-weekly deep conditioning mask. A good product - and I like Redken …Read more

Treatments - Trind - Cuticle Balsam

I am a Trind fan so after trying the Nail Balsam (great), Nail Repair (effective) and Optical Nail Brightener (truly stellar), I punked down $18 plus shipping for the Cuticle Balsam. It contains alcohol which I found counterintuitive - but also Vitamin A & E. So far, it works really well. If you have not heard of Trind - their products are amazing. Try it!

Used this for a late summer pedi and it shows off well if you have a tan (I have super pale skin so my idea of a tan is not very tan). It is a creme (pink with a cool tone) - not quite baby pink and softer than a Barbie pink. Not easy to apply but I had apro do it, so it looks amazing. Would not buy the bottle but for a one-shot pedi it was great.
