  • Jan Marini Skin Research Bioglycolic Oily Skin Cleansing Gel

    I was offered this product through my esthetician & have bought several bottles since the first one I used. This is to be applied on DRY skin & massaged in to cleanse face then rinsed with luke warm water (never hot). I've seen my dark spots fade over the last 3 months I've used this. I's helped control my oily (non acne) skin. Sometimes I will put it on my shin dry & then take a shower & let it sit on there for a few minutes then rinse off at the end of my shower. Not sure how the girl below found it for $20.... it's more along the lines of $30-32. Be careful since it's a esthetician/salon product & a little more than your usual face wash there are counterfeit products everywhere! ONLY buy from a reputable clinic/esthetician!

  • IS Clinical C Eye Gel

    IS Clinical C Eye Gel

    Under eye "chicken skin" almost gone!

    This is one of the best eye serums I've ever used & I've used a lot of different eye serums/creams from store brand to salon. THis product has over the last 3 months faded my "chicken skin" look under my eyes. I also use an eye needler which helps the product absorb better that was purchased by my salon esthetician. I then use the IS Clinical Youth Eye Cream on top twice a day & it has done WONDERS for my 35 year old eyes with some wrinkles to. Also note that after I learned how to dab & apply serums & creams & not tugging helped this problem go away to. It's pricey, but if your concerned about your eyes this is the gold standard!

  • IS Clinical Active Serum

    IS Clinical Active Serum

    Fades dark spots & brightens

    One of the best brightening/dark spot fading serums around. Also good for anyone that has oily/acne prone skin. I'm 35 & have the occasional pimple, but after using this they really do stay at bay. I've applied this mostly to my forehead area where I've had brown spots form after a sunny vacation & this has completely faded my dark spots. Wonderful product,but only buy from a reputable salon/clinic as there are fakes out there due to the price.

  • Origins Pinch Your Cheeks

    I've used this origins product in Raspberry for years! I just ordered the coarlberry since I'm realizing with my green eyes & brown hair i look better in a coral color. This is what I do to get a perfect blend: first you need to apply a lotion to the cheek area where you want to apply the stain. This allows for easy (EASY!) blending. Use a lotion for your skin type only. Even light acne lotions work. Then apply a small amount to your finger tip & blend. I start on the cheek area closest to my nose & blend out. The only reason why I gave this a 9/10 & not a 10/10 is that since it's a stain, it will stain your finger you used to apply it with, but is easily taken care of by washing with a bit of soap. Some saying it's too dark are applying without a lotion & probably using too much. this is a product that any pale to dark skinned person can use.

  • Kerastase Serum Nutri-Sculpt Leave-in Lustrous Repair

    I've used this product for the last 7 months or so & very much like this product. Unfortunately it's discontinued but you can still get it online for far less than the Kerastase. com site. I started using this after I tried the Kerastase shampoo & conditioners & liked them. I'm a brunette & for the last 2 years was a platinum blonde which I liked very much, but since bleaching your hair ruins & breaks off the ends I wanted my long hair back & knew I needed a good product to nourish the broken dried ends. The way I use tis product is to shower & apply to wet hair. The back says to use on wet hair, not on dry hair like one of the negative reviews below. They have other products that work much better on dry hair for "fly-aways." I do let my hair naturally dry overnight & sleep with a towel under my pillow case to not ruin the pillow. I have to do this since my hair is so damaged & know that as much as I want to curl & flat Iron my hair the only way to get it strong & long again is to not use the blow dryer or heating irons.

  • Afirm Afirm 2x

    Afirm Afirm 2x

    Read your labels!

    I'm a 34 year old with some minor wrinkles around the mouth & forehead due to sun tanning in my teens & twenties. I've have been using this for about 3 weeks & very much like it. Those that are complaining of the product irritation is because they are using it to much. This is a retinol product & like AHA glycolic acid, it's not meant to be used every night! I've seen wonderful results with the "chicken skin" under my eyes & minor improvements in only 3 weeks to the mouth parentheses & forehead lines. This is one of the few retinol products that actually contain retinol. Remember Retinol Palmitate is the retinol that you can use every day, not full Retinol, which is what's in this product. The cheaper store brand versions such as Loreal, Mabelline, Cover Girl, Avon & such mostly contain the Palmitate version & it's not as strong as regular retinol... read your labels. I gave this a 9 since I'm still in the early stages of using the product. I also have super sensitive skin & have had eczema problems for over 5 years & using this approximately 2-3 times a week is enough for me. Hope this helps the ones that are considering this product & please don't go off the reviews of people that used this product every day for weeks, you'll have irritation if you do this.

  • RapidLash Eyelash and Eyebrow Enhancing Serum
    10.0

    RapidLash Eyelash and Eyebrow Enhancing Serum

    BEST LASH GROTH PRODUCT PERIOD

    I've used this for the last year & have not stopped. I started using it at night like the product says. I believe you need to use it on bare clean skin like the product also says. There have been many not so good reviews on this & I don't know why, maybe the time frame. Many people expect something to fast & your eyelashes (like hair) just don't grow that fast. My product says give it 8 weeks & that's how long it took for me to see even a slight difference, then at 9/10 weeks they were very long. I often don't wear mascara when going to do quick trips to the store & such since I don't need it. Multiple people have commented & asked if I have false eyelashes on. Remember you need to apply it to the lash & not your skin, at night, on clean bare skin. Be patient be patient be patient. The last thing is once you get to your desired lash length you need to still use it at least 2-3 times a week unless you want your lashes to go back to "normal." It's not something that'll make your lashes permanently long, there's nothing that will do that hence the continual use. The good thing is that after you get to the maintenance stage the tube will last much much longer since you are only applying it 2-3 times a week.
