  • Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15

    I absolutely LOVE this product. I wanted something lighter for summer but still needed a little makeup and this is terrific. It has the Olay moisturizers PLUS a light foundation and properties that help to even out the skin. After about a week of using it every day I actually noticed some of my brown spots getting less noticeable! That in itself is amazing. Plus, it has enough coverage to look like your skin is great and natural, naturally. You do not look like you are wearing makeup, yet somehow it makes your skin look greater than without it!!! Does that make sense!!?? It does cover minor problems and evens out the skin tone -- all while working to actually make things better. I am actually seeing the benefits even when I just wash my face. It is evening out the skin so it actually looks better all on its own. The light/medium is probably the best shade for most to try first.

  • Chanel Precision Ultra Correction Eye Restructuring Anti-Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream

    I also got a sample of this and through ebay ended up getting as many samples as I could -- I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS STUFF. I wish I could afford the jar, but the samples do last a long while. I am 68 years old with great skin and this stuff makes it even better -- it absolutely does help with the crows feet and puffiness, etc. Really, at my age, people are amazed at how beautiful the skin around my eyes is. And I have had absolutely no adverse reactions to it -- no stinging, smarting of the eyes, redness or anything! I hesitated putting this review in mentioning getting the samples, but that is how I usually find the things that work for me -- so don't buy out all the samples, please leave a few for me!

    Illuminare Ultimate All Day Blush

    Can you tell I LOVE this makeup!!

    I promise, you will not hear from me any more today -- but I can't tell you enough good things about this line of makeup. Not only is the foundation and eye shadow GREAT, but this little tube of blush will last you almost forever and the colors are very intense, go a long, long way, have terrific staying power, and blend beautifully, and are MINERAL -- so how can you lose!!!

    Illuminare Foundation Formulas in 3 Middle Shades

    If you are not sure, this is a great way to try it out!

    This is what got me started using this brand two years ago -- they give you the three different formulas in the best colors and it will get you hooked as it did me! Great, great makeup line and for a very reasonable price -- why get the drugstore stuff when you can get top of the line stuff.

  • Illuminare Fast Application Pad
    10.0

    Illuminare Fast Application Pad

    Absolutely need this with this line of makeup

    Whether you buy the foundation, blush or eyeshadow, this is an absolute must-have tool -- it helps to smooth out all of whatever you use, so there are no heavy spots or anything and the best thing about it is that it is washable. I especially love it for using with the eyeshadow because the pointy end fits perfectly on the eyelid and IT IS SO SOFT that there is absolutely no irritation, pulling, etc.

  • Illuminare All Day Eye Color Trial Pack - SPF 15

    I have been using Illuminare makeup for a couple of years now and I absolutely love it -- no more powdery mess on your makeup area from regular mineral makeup -- this is a liquid mineral-based makeup, including these eye shadows. These little tubes of all the colors are WONDERFUL -- they are all in neutral shades and give you a chance to try them all and just the SMALLEST amount is enough for BOTH eyes and if you use the pad they also sell, it is a great look! And it stays on literally all day AND NIGHT if that is what you want. No irritation in the eyes -- the greatest makeup idea in a long, long time. My only wish is that they made it in subtle colors (blue, gray, green, etc.) too. You will not be disappointed with this, I promise -- and if you use it on top of the Clinique ALL ABOUT EYES, it is doubly pretty.

  • Clinique All About Eyes
    10.0

    Clinique All About Eyes

    Finally, my eyeshadow stays on, looking great, ALL DAY

    This is the greatest stuff -- no more eyelids looking crepey, holds eyeshadow like a dream, feels so good going on and even without any eye makeup my eyes look and feel better. I've been using it for about two weeks now and love it as much today as I did the first time I tried it. And you have to use just a little so this small jar will probably last a long, long time. Best thing, for as long as it will last, and the great work it does, it is still not expensive. Way to go Clinique!!!

  • Bath & Body Works Signature Collection Eau de Toilette Midnight Pomegranate

    I hate smelling like a basket of strawberries or some other fruit, so none of their FRUITY fragrances has worked for me, UNTIL THIS ONE!!! It is amazingly seductive and more people have stopped and asked me what it is that I am wearing. I first smelled it on one of my nurses when I was in the hospital - she came in to check on me, and when she leaned over me the first thing that hit me was this wonderful smell. I couldn't wait to get home and buy some for myself. It is wonderful. I use the body lotion and then refresh it with the cologne if it needs it. One of their best -- hope they don't discontinue it too quickly, as they are prone to do.

  • Arbonne Made in the Shade Self Tanner

    Arbonne Made in the Shade Self Tanner

    Surprisingly, it looks great!

    Tried this on a whim because I was looking for a better self-tanner and it really looks nice and lasts longer than most. The smell could be a little nicer but it is not totally offensive. It is a more watery solution rather than a heavy cream which makes it dry a lot faster than most. And the color that develops, at least on my skin, is very natural looking and not orangey. For the money it is a very good investment and a little goes a long way.

  • Basis Sensitive Skin Bar
    10.0

    Basis Sensitive Skin Bar

    Great little bar

    If you want the simplest form of face washing, this is it. It is MILD, cleans good, smells fresh -- not full of perfumes -- and lasts a long time and best of all, not at all expensive! What more can you ask!!! Hint: If you are like me and wash your face a lot in the summer, especially after working in the yard or exercising, etc., it is great because it does NOT dry your skin out!
