Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Acanya

Wow! It's been a very long time since I've used an acne product that worked so quickly and effectively (and without the initial purge thing that typically results in new acne from the onset of using the new product). I was very reluctant to invest in this product because of previous bad experiences with antibiotic acne topical meds but okayed my dermatologist's suggestion to try …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Lancaster - 365 Cellular Elixir Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/23/2008

I received a sample of this in the last test tube beauty kit. The sample lasted about 2 months so I was able to form a fair opinion on it. At first, I thought it was another one of those silly serums that promise the moon and don't deliver and figured I'd use it up anyway just because it was there. The name Lancaster relates to celebrity, Hollywood, and Nordstrom levels in my book and I …Read more

Skincare - Face - DDF - Salicylic Wash 2%

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/25/2007

Super gentle...big surprise for me...totally non-drying. I was disappointed because I wanted a decent drying type wash and I thought this might do it. After attempting numerous face washes with this stuff, I finalized it by using it up in the shower as an all-over to expedite the process of depleting the stock. Typical DDF packaging in a huge bottle so you get plenty. Glad it's over though.

Cleansers - Oxy - Maximum Action Rapid Treatment Face Wash

Aug/25/2007

I had high hopes for this but it bombed! I used it in the shower. Sometimes just on the face but when I started getting breakouts from it I decided to use it all up on the rest of my body where there is less chance of breakouts. It wasn't a 'purge' either...it was aggravating to my skin. Non-drying, sort of neutral really...very masculine looking bottle. Not hard to dispense...just …Read more

Nice little wash. pHisoderm's gone mod with this one. New, kind of subtle techno green packaging that looks inviting and important. It's got the 'same ol 'same ol 2% salicylic but it lathers up great, with an enticing scent (smells like men's cologne, sort of). You're supposed to leave it on for one minute before finishing your business with it. This is good for oily …Read more

Scrubs - Phisoderm - pH2O Anytime Nurturing Scrub

4.0

Jul/09/2007

I picked this up for $2 at a local Big Lots. Buying it at this store was a clue that this product was being discontinued. After using it, I see why. It's actually terrific as far as fragrance and cleaning power goes. But it fails miserably at rinsing off the body. It takes a few heavy duty, hot water, rubbing efforts to get this stuff off the body. It is a white formula that comes in a …Read more

Lips - Jane Cosmetics - Max Lip 2 Lip Plumper

Jul/01/2007

I didn't think I would like this at first but because I like Jane products so much I went ahead and bought it. I've been using this for a few weeks now and love it! This lip gloss comes in a clear hard plastic tube so you can see the crystal clear formula and wand inside (it's kinda sexy looking!). It also turned out to be a cinnamon flavor, which I wasn't too keen on at first …Read more

Cleansers - Purpose - Gentle Cleansing Wash

Mar/31/2007

I received this in the recent test tube delivery. It's a neat little liquid soap. Nothing overly special about it, really. I didn't care to use it on my face as I feared breakouts. However, I used it as an all-over bodywash in the shower. The pump could be a bit more user friendly as it is a bit tight. It cleans pretty well and leaves a unique fresh scent after use. Not much more to say …Read more

Skincare - Face - Mario Badescu - Cellufirm Drops

Jan/22/2007

A lovely product...no breakouts, no irritation. I received a sample size of this from Nordstom's, which is actually a decent size with a fair amount of product in the bottle...certainly enough to form a valid review opinion on. This is a light green lotion (like his Enzyme Cleansing Gel) that is dispensed in 'drop' formation from the bottle. I apply this around my eye area and have …Read more

Skincare - Body - Perlier - White Almond Hand Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/08/2007

Got it on ebay for about $12 or so. Love. Classic Perlier blue and white packaging, comes in a typical hand cream tube with wide cap, wonderful white almond smell, and actually moisturizes the hands! Has sort of a light 'waxyish' feel when applied to the hands, but then lightens up a bit. Leaves the hands coated nicely with an incredibly enticing white almond smell that just won't …Read more
