This was part of a special TB collection of Pevonia products. I am not impressed with this line of products at all. The serum sits on my face, even after using a Clarisonic Opal for deep penetration and absorption. There is absolutely no difference in my skin, and I have been using it for quite some time now. I do not recommend this useless product to anyone!

I Am Not Buying the Full-Size Product
This was part of a special collection from TB. I am not impressed with anything from this line that was included in the collection. The cleanser is ordinary, does an average job of cleansing, but not worth the money. I use Purity by Philosophy with greater results. Don't waste your money on this less than average cleanser.

This product was part of a TB special collection. I am not impressed with the 3 products from this line, especially the toner. There is absolutely no difference between this toner and Estee Lauder, Clinique or Aveda. There is no difference in the appearance or tightening of my facial skin. It is like putting plain water on your face. Save your money!

The Opal Works for Me
I have a problem with dark circles and puffiness under my eyes. I went to Dillard's Department Store to see what they had to help me with this problem. The sales person removed my under eye concealer, and used the Opal. It cooled my eyes, and I was amazed...it immediately reduced the puffiness! The serum contains a special sea ingredient. The Opal is designed to help absorption of creams and serums absorb deeper into the skin. So, I decided to also use it on the wrinkles on my face. I have been using it for a month now, and the dark circles are fading and the crow's feet (horrible name) are gone completely. Using it on my face has given my face deep moisturizing, and my face looks radiant and glowing. If you have the same problems I describe, you should consider the Opal. It was $195.00 at Dillard's and elsewhere, but I bought it on E-Bay for $120. It comes with 3 pods of serum, and the one I purchased was in a box complete with everything it's supposed to have.

I was asked to review this product by Total Beauty. The Vitamin C is imparted through dissolvable tablets, which do taste like oranges. However, just like drinking orange juice, I could not brush my teeth before taking one of these tablets. It leaves a terrible taste in your mouth if you brush before. And, it leaves a terrible after taste whether or not tooth brushing is involved. They also gave me severe heartburn and indigestion. The package states it helps support your immune system. Each tablet contains 60 mg of Vitamin C and provides 100% Daily Value. I researched some of the additional ingredients and the product contains silicon dioxide, among other things that did not appear to be chemicals, which is apparently contained in food as a flow agent and absorbs atmospheric humidity that would otherwise cause clumping. I found it interesting because it's sand. I found the information on-line in an article entitled "18 Most Sickening Food Ingredients. The article does state, however, that swallowing sand probably won't hurt you. The instructions are to take 1 tablet up to 6 times per day. All product statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. I would never buy these. I prefer to have one glass of orange juice per day, which is muchbetter than eating something that is more like candy. And, I can't see eating one of these with morning coffee.

I was asked to review this product by TB. The concept is great...a daily health booster that contains "vitamins, minerals and super-nutrients that deliver a boost of energy and immunity in an easy to mix effervescent packet." No sugar, no artificial flavors, and low in calories. It is a powder you mix with water. It has a horrible taste and a bad aftertaste. It's supposed to taste like orange, which it does, but it reminds me of Tang, the powdered orange juice. I did feel a boost of energy, however, I felt jittery, even before coffee. I do not recommend this product. I would rather take a multi vitamin. I don't want an artificial boost of energy that causes a racing heart.

Okay When It's Free
I received this from Sephora for my birthday. It was a smaller version than the normal size. Interestingly, I loved the small version, and it really moisturized. So, I bought the full sized one, and it did not perform as well as the smaller one! I think this is really weird. Then, I decided to try Burt's Bees. 100% more efficient. Sugar is VERY expensive, and I now believe not worth the money.

Okay for 1/2 hour
I bought these to help decrease the number eleven between my eyes caused by frowning. I wet the back of a thick piece of paper, stretched the frown to spread it out, and applied it between my eyes at night. In the morning, when I took it off, the frown was gone! However, even concentrating on not frowning, the 2 lines reappeared in all of their glory in about 1/2 hour! I did this for a month, and the same thing happened. The repair is simply not there. Don't waste your money.

What a Great Styling Cream!
I received this from TB to review. It's part of the HSN TB Collection. I am impressed with amount of volume and fullness it imparts to my hair! My hair is visibly fuller. I also wear wigs, and I have one that seemed it needed more fibers. I applied this cream to the wig, and I couldn't believe it worked for a wig, too. It is incredibly full! So, it has multi-uses. Happy with the look for my own hair and the wig, which I wear on a bad hair day! I noticed it also removes frizzies and produces shine. Good for both of my incarnations. It is worth it to buy the TB HSN Collection for this product as well as Korres Body Butter and Tan Towels, all of which I rated 10. I highly recommend this product as well as the TB HSN Collection, which is always fantastic!

The Korres Body Butter was sent to me by TB to review. I am so glad they did. This is an incredible body butter in a tube. It has a very pleasant, light aroma. Not too strong, but nice. I put it on my arms and legs. It really moisturizes and penetrates deeply. As a result of applying it, it also really moisturized my hands! I am going to carry it in my purse when I need additional moisture on my hands. I'm going to buy another for home. This will be in your HSN TB Collection. Buying the Collection for this is worth it. The TB Collections for HSN are always fantastic. I highly recommend this product and the TB HSN Collection!
