Moisturizers - Desert Essence - Organic Jojoba Oil

Nov/15/2017

After trying oil blends such as Tatcha, Boscia, and others I am using this solely to remove my makeup. It is inexpensive and does the job of thoroughly dissolving my makeup without ever breaking me out. I have patted this on after toning to see how I liked it as a mositurizer, but I found it too heavy for my oily skin.

Hair Color - Schwarzkopf - keratin color

This hair color actually came out the exact color on the box. It completely covered my grays and just has this pretty glow (I used 12C light pearl blonde). My hair usually feels like straw after I color it but my hair felt like I did a deep conditioning hair mask after using this product. I have been coloring my hair for 41 years and this is the best color I have ever used. Have already bought …Read more

BB Cream - Dr. Jart+ - BB Dis-A-Pore Beauty Balm

This is it - HG! Perfect coverage, gives a lovely glow (but not shine), not sticky, doesn't separate on my oily nose, and my skin looks better since I started using it. I top it with my Meow Cosmetics Mineral Foundation in Frisky Mau and I have the perfect canvas. I would be really sad if the color wasn't right for me and cannot believe this fabulous product only comes in only one shade

Treatments (Eye) - Perricone MD - Acyl Glutathione Eyelid Serum

Feb/13/2015

This is the one product I would take to the proverbial deserted island. I like most Perricone products, but have gotten the most dramatic results from this one. You can feel it tightening and I can actually see it working.

You apply a tiny amount - one pump divided between two fingers and tapped around the lids and undereye area. I have sensitive eyes and this has never caused me any …

Treatments (Eye) - Dr. Brandt Skincare - DNA Eye Cream

I was encouraged to try this by the Sephora SA - he described it as the "do-all, ultimate eye cream" - but at 80 USD I took a pass. However, when I saw this as a deluxe sample giveaway on Ulta I grabbed it. The cream is extremely thick, almost a paste-like consistency. I used it for a week, and while I do believe it hydrated the area, it also irritated my eyes no matter how far away …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Perricone MD - Vitamin C Ester 15

Like another reviewer mentioned, you need to give the Perricone products some time. I use this and the AG Eyelid Serum. It sounds silly, but just a few days ago I was applying the eyelid serum (I use I on my lids AND my undereye area) and I realized that the skin under my eyes has truly changed - for the better.

But this review is for the Vitamin C Ester 15 and it too has evened my …

Powder - IT Cosmetics - Celebration Foundation

Jul/07/2014

This is such an incredible foundation - excellent coverage and a lush matte finish, not too flat and not glowy. I am in my fifties with oily skin and dark hyperpigmentation and broken capillaries on my cheeks (or as a Sephora SA called it "a really tough case.") This paired with the Bye Bye Redness cream by IT does an incredible job of making me look like I have great skin. I usually …Read more

I purchased this in Limitless Pink and it is a gorgeous color on both my lips and my cheeks. It feels very moisturizing on my lips but somewhat tacky on my cheeks. Even if this only works out for my lips I will be pleased. I can see this pairing well with a BB or CC cream - more of a glowy look. The color has such a pretty, soft, natural glow without feeling or looking like a "lip …Read more

Toners - Biologique Recherche - Exfoliating Lotion P50

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/20/2014

This is the queen of exfoliating toners and priced accordingly. I believe I paid 95 USD for my bottle. That said, I have used it daily for six weeks and it is about one-fifth gone. This should easily last me six months or more, so I can justify the price. It is indeed strong - I actually feel an uncomfortable burning sensation depending on my skin's condition - and it does the job I need it …Read more

Treatments (Face) - First Aid Beauty - Facial Radiance Pads

These came recommended as a nice mild exfoliating step. I have used them for six weeks before finally narrowing them down to the dullness I have been experiencing in my skin. They leave a tacky residue behind and do not give me the level of exfoliation my skin needs. These may be okay for very sensitive skins.
