This product delivers. It is highly moisturizing. I am using it as my night cream and when I wake up, my skin is plumped and supple. I love it. It truly sinks into the skin - I have not found many products that really do. The scent is great, it disappears quickly and the price is right. Nature's Gate recommends using a pea size serving - because of the unique gel-like texture, and I am …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Devour

Very Muguet de Bois. Transforms into a pale candied floral 2 hours later with very little punch for a perfume oil. Completely missed the fig and the lotus. Too bad - the notes appear to be truly inspired.

Simply put, nothing special; pleasant enough, not astonishing. BUT, it turns to soap on me and I find nothing is worse than that. Good perfumes stay true - whether pleasing or not; anything that turns to soap is off my list immediately. C'est la vie.

Very grown up scent. Heady. Mature. Chanel's answer to Cartier's Le Baiser du Dragon - a softened version - less licoricey with a bit more powder at the end. This is a night out scent. Not for the office. Definitely worth having for special events, with high heels and pearls.

I think this has to be the finest makeup I have ever tried. It has every quality that is advertised as a major selling point. I goes on incredibly smoothly - a thin concoction that immediately disappears, covers, feels like you have nothing on, makes the skin feel like it is covered in velvet and smells divine. No high shine but incredibly moisturizing - doesn't dry the skin out or sit on …Read more

Moisturizers - Dove - Fresh Radiance Anti-Aging Night Cream

Really good offering from Dove. Going on, it isn't greasy like many night creams. It absorbs quickly and seems to protect skin during the night - in the morning the skin looks fresh. I sense that there is alot of polymer action - it is slightly plasticy, but I enjoy using it and I think that is half the battle won. Something that I don't mind applying every night before bed will get …Read more

A while back, a sales associate at Sephora gave me a generous sample of this to add to my daily regime. She said I needed an anti-free radical potion, rather than an anti-wrinkle potion. She advised that the two formulas are slightly different and that Christian Dior made a concoction that included both formulas, with success. I don't typically reach for Dior. I don't like the …Read more

This is what I had hoped Nars Cactus Flower would be. While Cactus Flower makes me look like a clown (I can't control the pigment on my PPP cheeks), this is spectacular. It really is a beautiful natural peach tint that you can increase or decrease - its a cream that goes to dry - but doesn't get 'powdery.' I don't use Shiseido at all - it never makes its way into my …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Cream Blush in Penny Lane [DISCONTINUED]

Together with NARS' Cactus Flower, this new color might reach cult status. It is a pinker cream version of Orgasm. Not as 'drab' and gothic as NARS' Sin, but truly a gentle pink with a hint of peach and just enough color to make cheeks look blushed and dewy. For more drama and shine, Cactus Flower is the better choice. I have both colors in my makeup drawer and I love them …Read more

So good. Everyone else has described it nicely - milky pink with a hint of gold glimmer; worthy of an Allure cover. What is worth mentioning is the fact that the applicator and tube are just horrible. I can't believe the company hasn't changed this. The color gathers on the wand and stays there. Eventually, if you don't clean the wand, it will leak out of the lid. To manage …Read more
