I'm on my 3rd bottle of this. I bought this as a replacement for Replenix CF serum because that was really breaking the bank for me at $60 without being a particularly special product (it works fantastically but it's basically just a green tea serum..), and since it includes green tea as well as pycnogenol, which is an ingredient I was interested in, I went for it. It goes nicely under …Read more

I actually sort of enjoy this product. It smells like rotten coffee and looks and feels like it too but I find it to go very well under all other types of serums/moisturizer so I've been adding it to my morning and evening routines for some extra antioxidant oomph. The smell disappears almost instantly too, for those who are worried about that!

Lordy, these are pretty! I have this in the peony color, and it's the nicest, most natural looking product. I've always liked the idea of cream blushes, but I always had issues applying it correctly and they broke me out. I had been seeing these every time I went to Sephora and the other week I had some money burning a hole in my pocket and I wanted a 500 point gift, so I finally went …Read more

Treatments - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Hubner Silica Gel

Mar/05/2014

I started taking Flora vegetal silica supplements purchased on a well-known health product site about a month and a half ago, and although I'm not very observant as far as my hair goes and can't comment on that (maybe once it's grown out a bit?), I literally cannot believe that my nails haven't split or broken in the month that I've been taking it. I usually can't …Read more

Skincare - Face - Obagi - Professional C Serum 10 percent

Jan/19/2014

I remembered using this product when I had acne in my early 20s, and while it didn't clear up my acne (only BCP and spiro did), I remembered that it helped my skin tone significantly. I was in Japan (where I originally got this product) recently and saw this product on the shelf, and decided to pick it up to see if it worked as well as I remembered, since I've been out of luck finding a …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - NCN Skincare GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Serum with EGF

Jan/19/2014

I know that CPs aren't popular on the skincare board, but I've been using them on the premise that moderation should prevent any adverse effects. I use this serum about once a week, maybe less, when I dermaroll and after I do peels. It's really watery, applies easily, and dries quickly. It provides an immediate firming effect after application. I can't say I've seen …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - A & D - Original Ointment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/19/2014

I use A&D ointment for literally everything. I am never without a tube, and when I travel and forget to bring one, I freak out. For one, I have used it as an eye cream since I was 25. I don't know if it's the superior moisturizing and barrier-creating properties of the ointment, or the vitamin A that's in it, but I have no fine lines around my eyes at 30 (hoping it'll stay …Read more

Jan/19/2014

I had strayed from ANR for a while, but something about how reliable and high quality ANR is always keeps me coming back when I've cheated (and lost) with other products. However, when I went to my local Macy's, I was surprised to learn that rather than being a second ANR option (hence the "II"), this product has actually replaced the previous one. That's sort of a bummer …Read more

Sunscreen - KANEBO - Allie Comfortable Sunscree EX (Perfect)

Sep/15/2013

I believe this is called "Perfect Alpha" now. This is my current favorite SS! I had previously not paid much attention to the Allie line, preferring to use Biore and Shiseido Anessa instead, but once the PA++++ rating came out I think this was the first one to put it on their packaging so of course I immediately ordered some. The price is comparable to the Shiseido Anessa full sizes …Read more

Sep/15/2013

I bought this also with the Long Keep gel, and they look pretty similar out of the bottle, but this product is meant to be, and actually is, more moisturizing. This product has a gel cream consistency, and it's super easy to spread out and apply. I like that when it dries, even if there are areas where there was a little bit extra and I forgot to blot, my face doesn't look like a …Read more
