This scrub is so gentle I use it every morning. I wish there were more microbeads for more of a scrub feel and less of the menthol which gives a cooling sensation to my face...I don't really care for that feeling. Even though it sounds like I am not that into the scrub (it's pretty average), my skin seems to agree with it since I have not had a breakout for the month that I have been …Read more

Apr/04/2011

My main reason for buying this product was to cover my semi-dark circles under my eyes (I don't have severe dark circles but just enough that my eyes look tired). I bought the lightest shade and I wear LM Silk Creme Foundation in Beige Ivory. Before I use the concealer, I always make sure to apply a moisturizer to my under eye area. Then I use a concealer brush to spread the concealer from …Read more

In a foundation, I look for medium to full coverage that doesn't look or feel like I am wearing a mask. I have visible pores on my cheeks and blackheads on my nose that I like to cover. Also note that I do not use a primer before applying foundation, only sunscreen. This creme foundation is very thick. It's very hard to apply with a foundation brush, which is why I think it's …Read more

I tried this product for about a couple of weeks and I am not impressed at all. A few hours after application, the mascara wears off...my lashes are not as full or long as when I first applied the mascara. Secondly, it smudges when I wear it on my lower lashes. This mascara doesn't have staying power or really a "wow" effect on lashes. It's average at best. I will not be …Read more

I hardly ever wax my legs or bikini area, but when I did in the past I used a plain homemade sugar wax and needed no strips. This Gigi wax is just fine. It did a good job pulling off my leg hairs, but my skin sure did get red and bumpy. Even a few days after waxing I found myself scratching my legs like crazy. So really, my legs are NOT nice and smooth like I wanted because of all the …Read more

I love this foundation! I have it in Natural Ivory and it's a great match. I apply it with a foundation brush and also mix it with some moisturizer (I use Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel). I found this to be the best way to apply and wear the foundation. It makes my skin look healthy and radiant. It also covers the visible pores on my cheeks. I love the way my …Read more

Eyeliner - Lancôme - Le Crayon Kohl

I have Le Crayon Khol in both moss and black ebony (given to me as a gift). The colors are nice but, for $22 a piece I was expecting much better performance! The smudging is very bad and they wear off only after a few hours. I much rather prefer urban decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencils or clinique's cream shapers. Don't fall into this expensive trap!!

I bought this because my other moisturizers are too light for the winter time. My skin kept feeling dry even after I moisturized and so I knew I needed to buy something a bit heavier and hydrating. I found this at TJMaxx for $10 (1/2 original price!) and I am so glad I tried it. It is pretty good. My skin never feels dry anymore. I use it both in the morning and night. The scent is a great …Read more

I am VERY HAPPY with this product!! It is a wonderful tinted moisturizer because it is so light that you can't feel it on your face throughout the day, and yet gives me great coverage. It evens out my skin tone, hides my blackheads and fills in my pores so that I look like I naturally have great skin! Also, it gives my skin a healthy, dewy look. It doesn't suck all the moisture out …Read more

I always wanted to try this and now that I did I can forget about it. I am not a fan of this foundation. I have oily but sensitive skin and this was way too drying and made my skin look really dull and cakey. It even smells harsh too....like a toner. It does help make pores look smaller, but that's not enough. Many products can do this and still make my face look like it's glowing …Read more
