    Caudalie Vinoperfect Night Correcting

    Works great, but it started to make my freckles disappear

    Now if you have skin discolorations, the super awesome Caudalie has their Vinoperfect Night Correcting Cream. Apply this after your correcting serum, and watch your skin tone even out and dark spots fade away. After about a month of use, this actually started lightening my freckles! I've been impressed by Caudalie for years, and they really revolutionized skincare. I remember when I had to actually order their products from France! This nourishing cream helps to diminish the visible signs of dark spots while renewing skin. Upon waking, your skin is smooth, your pores appear tighter and your complexion is incredibly uniform and radiant. Discovered in grapevine stalks, the 500 ppm titration of pure Viniferine was stabilized and patented by Caudalie in collaboration with the University of Pharmacy. This exclusive ingredient has exceptional radiance, complexion enhancing and anti-oxidant* actions.

  • Nuxe Paris Creme Fraiche Concentree de Beaute Suractivee

    In the winter my skin gets crazy dry, so I save this one for then, but for those with dry skin this would be a great moisturizer for anytime. Nuxe Paris Creme Fraiche 24HR Moisture Emulsion is incredibly rich and hydrating. It has a light herbal smell, nothing overwhelming. you can practically see your skin plumping up as soon as you apply it, and after using it I feel as if I've given my face a drink.

  • Calvin Klein Ck One Deodorant

    Well, it can't all be sunshine and teddy bears. I wasted my money on CK One deodorant. I'm always looking to try out new scents for the pits, but this one really is the pits. I like the scent of the perfume/cologne itself, but the deodorant 1. smells entirely too masculine, not unisex like the cologne 2. it's that gross clear stick that feels all slimy 3. it doesn't even work! I smell better using nothing at all! Poop.

  • Stila Jade Blossom Hair Refresher
    7.0

    Stila Jade Blossom Hair Refresher

    Great smell but takes some practice

    I have mixed feelings about Stila's Hair Refresher. I have it in Jade Blossom, which smells wonderful. It works really well. I have oily hair that is flat and limp if I don't wash it every day, however I've discovered that by using this stuff, I can skip a day (to make my color last longer or if I'm just in a hurry.) It actually seems to add some body to my hair- today I even got compliments on my hair after using it. So what my problem- practice with it first! They have a special bottle that you squeeze to have it come out in poofs instead of all at once, but if you get over enthusiastic you'll end up looking like you're going gray. (Kate Moss caused a buzz recently when she went a little heavy handed with the dry shampoo and looked like she was angling for an AARP membership. Leave it to the fashion world to actually pick this blooper up and turn it into a TREND.)

  • Avon GLAZEWEAR Lip Gloss

    Avon GLAZEWEAR Lip Gloss

    Great for the price

    I really like everything about Avon's Glazewear Lip Gloss. It's not at all sticky, it feels very soothing on the lips, it has a pleasant caramel like scent, it lasts a really long time between applications, and it's CHEAP! They have three different types, Shine, Sparkle and Intense. I don't have one of the shine variations but I have a sparkle in Mocha Latte and it has beautiful iridescence and color. The Intense I have in Sweet Maple, and it has SO much pigment that it's almost like a liquid lipstick rather than a gloss. Both of them have way more tint than a normal lipgloss, so they're perfect for those who like the shine of a gloss but with more oomph in the color department.

  • L'Oreal Paris Endless Lipcolour

    I have to have some POP somewhere, and that's where Loreal Endless Lipstick in Crimson Joy comes in. I have NEVER worn this color without getting stopped by people to ask what I'm wearing. A woman at my work assumed it was MAC and was astounded that I bought it at the grocery store! It is TRULY endless wear, I can put this on at the beginning of a night out and hours and hours of appalling rebellious behaviour later- my lipstick looks as fresh as a field of daisies. And it doesn't dry out your lips! This stuff is INCREDIBLE! It's also a perfect red for those with cool skin tones. It doesn't make your teeth look yellow, and it has enough blue in it to look classy, not slutty. LOVE IT!

  • Secret Clinical Strength Original

    Secret Clinical Strength Original

    i didn't sweat but still stank

    I did put it to the test by standing outside as Pam The Dairy Cow made a visit to the kids at my library and I stood outside for almost an hour. Upon checking, i really didn't shed a DROP of sweat. The weird thing was, that it doesn't seem to affect SMELL, so at the end of the day, I'm dry as a bone but have more pit aroma than using my Evan's Garden all natural powder deodorant. What's the point if you still smell? That ain't right.

  • Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare All-In-One Tinted Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF 15

    Nothing is more hideous in the summer than seeing someone's face slide off! I also need SPF though, because I'm combustible. I have been loving Dr Dennis Gross MD Skincare All-In-One Tinted Moisturizer! I got this from my Skincare RX Beauty Cache and will be sad to see it all used up! It has medical grade ingredients and provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. it blends beautifully without the streakiness that a lot of cheap tinted moisturizers have. You look just like yourself but better (like a personal airbrush!) It doesn't have a stinky sunblock smell, either. It's even available in 6 shades to suit everyone!

  • Estee Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher

    Particularly in the summer, my skin gets oiler and my pores look like inner city potholes. A teeny bit of this makes my pores disappear so my foundation or tinted moisturizer doesn't sink into my pores for the 'peachhead' effect. It also keeps my skin from getting oily longer and gives a bright, refreshed feeling. Your skin looks and feels like silk, and with this, I can happily use nothing more than a tinted moisturizer and look fabu.

  • Cures by Avance Revital Eyes

    Cures by Avance Revital Eyes

    helped with puffiness

    After cleansing your face, you apply this just under the eyes to brow bone, and no matter how tired, puffy or baggy my eyes looked (or felt) the difference is immediately noticeable. A tidge goes a long way, so despite the scary price tag, it lasts eons.
