Here are all my reviews:
  • Secret Clinical Strength Sensitive Skin

    The scent is really obnoxious, but at least it's long-lasting. I've never understood why deodorant manufacturers think women want something to compete with their very expensive perfume! As for its effectiveness, it was only slightly better than Secret Platinum. Neither can hold a candle to Certain Dri or Klima antiperspirants, but they're not listed on this website.

  • Illuminare Fantastic Finish Foundation

    This is great stuff. The colors are beautiful neutrals with a slightly dewy finish. A little goes a very very long way--less is more. I first apply a sunscreen moisturizer, then dot the makeup on directly from the tube and blend with their wonderful little application pad. I have very dark under-eye circles, and this covers so well that usually no concealer is needed. But if one is, a tiny dot of their Extra Coverage formula does the job. This can be powdered for a more matte finish.

  • AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion

    AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion

    Can't live without it

    Minnesota winters can be tough on skin, and my dermatologist recommended this. My shins were looking like the Rio Grande in the dry season, and I'd tried everything from La Mer to Crisco. This stuff worked. It's unscented and it smells a bit ammoniac, but that vanishes as it dries. I usually go through a couple of bottles each winter, and in the summer I water it down a bit.

  • Paula's Choice Constant Color Gel Eye Liner

    This is exactly like Bobbi Brown's gel eye liner for a lot less money. It comes in 6 colors--I wish there were a few more, like a dark green and a lighter brown for the lower lid. It goes on easily and stays put until you wash it off. Best of all, depending on how you apply it, it can be smudged for a softer appearance, or it can be a dramatic crisp line. I have the brush (sold separately), but I prefer the stubbier angled brush sold by Illuminare.

  • Neutrogena One Step Gentle Cleanser

    Love this stuff. Very effective but very gentle, it leaves my combination skin feeling clean but not stripped. And the faint scent is lovely. It was recommended by Paula Begoun, and now I use this instead of Paula's brand!
