Phenomenal under eye treatment for AM and PM. Plumps, helps with fine lines and imparts a smoother look. Also great for lips and cuticles. No downsides—get a tube!

Fine program if your skin falls within the parameters of their range of formulas. I used tret/azelaic/clindamycin). However, the base clogged and the azelaic burned me. Because it was bundled I had stop all 3 treatments. It's all packed into one creamy gel. And if the creamy gel is too rich for your skin you are out of luck. Interactions with dr / customer service was fine but a bit rote …Read more

I've been searching for years for a fragrance that embodies the scent of a ballet instructor I had as a little girl. I have no idea how to put my finger on the fragrance or notes of what I am looking for, however I have sort of found it in Annick Goutal's H'adrien. However, it's still not quite spot on.

Having read the reviews for Iris Prima lead me to believe this …

I'm hardly a fan of CeraVe products for myself. However, my son has had horrible eczema since birth. He's seen derms, peds and allergists and no relief with rx or other pharmacy topicals. At my wit's end, I bought this on Thanksgiving because his itching was so miserable. It's now December 23 and his skin (body) is so soft, clear and itch-free I am astounded. Not at all greasy …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Formulator Sample Shop Liposome MAP

It's official. I love this sauce at 10 percent strength. The lovely barbih turned me on to this DIY MAP and I can corroborate her review below. My skin is clearer, more refined and the PIH much improved. The only caveat is that it is somewhat drying in cooler weather but I am working on mitigating that issue. Absolutely repuchasing this one.

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Concealer Stick

The only concealer I can use without issues. I use a MAC brush and dot blemishes with product and stipple lightly. I follow it up with Alima Satin Matte foundation and get decent coverage. Least clogging "foundation" combo I have found to date. Custard is the perfect shade for medium light, ruddy skin tone. Will buy until they change the formula.

Lipstick - Tarte Cosmetics - LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Stain in Envy

One of the few lipsticks I have finished and repurchased. The shade is a perfect MLBB match and mixes well with a variety of liners to create bolder or slightly muted versions of the original. The minty scent and flavor are unobtrusive and actually quite nice. Not a particularly drying formula but not terrifically moisturizing either. Will keep it in my arsenal as a daily use color.

Feb/16/2014

I've been through no less than a dozen bottles of this in the twoish years I've been using it. It is the perfect mild cleanser and efficiently cleans my ss and mmu as well my morning skin (actives removal). It's far less drying than any other foaming cleanser I have used and does not break me out (ymmv). Any time I have ventured into uncharted cleanser territory I ultimately run …Read more

I purchased 3 samples of the C15 because it was so highly regarded on SCB. They were on sale plus free shipping so total cost was $22ish. Packaging was cute. However the serum felt oily to me and I just couldn't be sure if the C had oxidized due to its odd color. Patch tested on my cheek and by day 4 had a cluster of clogs on my test area. Shipped the samples back. Yet another PC item I …Read more
