    PMD Personal Microderm

    PMD = PRETTY MAGICAL DEVICE

    Let me start by saying the PMD looks a lot more complicated than it actually is. I made sure to watch the DVD that came with the device, in addition to some you tube videos to get some pointers from actual users before I gave it a shot (which I highly recommend). In order to prep your skin for using the PMD you have to stop using any acid products for one whole week before. This had me nervous because I swear by my glycolic acid serum to keep my pimples at bay. So one antsy week later, I gave the PMD a whirl. After hearing all the rave reviews about it, I can say that I was slightly disappointed right after the first treatment because I neither felt nor saw a difference. My face looked a little irritated but that was it. It wasn’t until the next day when I could see the results…my face looked much smoother and my makeup went on much nicer! So far so good! I also did not have any break outs (I noticed one reviewer did) after using it and I have pretty sensitive, acne-prone skin. I have only used the white training disk that the device came loaded with, but I can’t wait to change out to the more advanced disk that covers more surface area and exfoliates a little better. I’m excited to see what the PMD can do in the long run considering it has worked out so well thus far. I plan on updating this review in another month after I have gotten a few more uses out of it, so, stay tuned…

  • Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-hour Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen

    I love this stuff! Unlike other BB creams, this does not leave you with a slimy face by noon AND it has SPF 30 in it which is a huge plus. If you have oily skin, this BB cream is for you! I used to use Lancôme foundation every day but this has since replaced it. This has such great coverage for a BB cream I find that I don't need the foundation anymore. I should also mention that the kabuki brush is crucial! It allows for a quick, even application and flawless coverage. Give it a shot, you wont be disappointed!

  • SkinCeuticals Serum 10 AOX+

    Best brand out there. This product has the highest amount of vitamin C in it on the market. It's expensive but worth every penny. I received a sample and after a week of using it I noticed my skin was visibibly smoother. I have very acne prone skin and this will not break you out. In fact, the antioxidents and L asorbic acid in it help to prevent breakouts and repair previous damage. I recommend saving up for this product...its worth it.

  • Beautyblender Blender Cleanser

    This is the only stuff that will thuroughly clean the beauty blender. Well worth the investment as it allows you to use the blender for as long as possible before replacing. My only minor complaint is the smell. It is pretty fragrant and its a weird smell that lingers on the sponge afterwards.

  • Beautyblender Sponge

    Beautyblender Sponge

    Beauty Blender

    This definitely lives up to the hype. It took me a little while to figure out the proper way to use it....I recommend watching a youtube video tutorial. Flawless is what you'll get with this baby. I will never go back to my brush again!

  • Benefit They're Real! Mascara

    Love this stuff. It lengthens, seperates & curls without clumping. The brush has brissels flared out on the end so you can get those hard to reach lashes in the corners. I will agree that it is overpriced, but it works fabulously it is worth it. Also worth mentioning, once it is applied it will not be going anywhere. No crumbs or smears a few hours later. With that said, getting it off is kind of a pain. You need a good eye make-up remover.

  • Wella Shimmer Delight Shine Spray

    Like one reviewer said, this is not life changing, however I did enjoy testing the product out and will continue to use it until it runs out. It smells fantastic and gives that subtle shine that natural hair lacks. My problem is I have very thin brunette hair, so shine spray just isn't a practical daily product for me (I do not need to add anything that will speeden up the greasy hair process). In order to avoid it, I sprayed the product on my palms and smoothed it to my ends as opposed to spraying it directly on my hair. If you were blessed with thicker hair I'd say give it a shot, it does what it says.

  • Evian Mineral Water Spray

    I was on the bandwagon with the people who think this product is ridiculous. That was until I tried it. I really do feel like it makes a difference and gives my skin a little extra moisture troughout the day. I keep it at my desk and its a nice pick me up when 2'oclock rolls around. Also, the back states that it neutralizes your PH levels, which is exactly what you need to do in order to prevent breakouts after the gym/sweating (according to my facialist). Even if its just water in a fancy mist bottle, I will continue to purchase.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser

    While I agree with the reviews that say this product is too harsh, it does not mean that it doesn't work. I use this only twice a week and use the MB enzyme cleansing gel all other times. This combination seems to balance the harshness of the acne wash, as the enzyme cleansing gel is effective at gently cleansing without drying out. Using this everyday would cause your face to become a dry mess. Try using it only 2-3 times a week and see how your face reacts.

  • DERMAdoctor KP Duty Dermatologist Body Scrub with Chemical + Physical Medi-Exfoliation

    After reading the fantastic reviews I decided to give this product a shot in hopes it would cure the "chicken skin" patches on my arms I get during the summer months. It has definitly helped in that dept, however make sure to wear sunscreen the days after using or else you will start to see dark spots. My coworker learned this the hard way! I also use this on my legs and it has helped my occasional ingrown hairs stay at bay. Your skin will feel as smooth as a babys bottom after one application of this stuff. Also a plus...there is no oily residue that some scrubs tend to leave behind. If you have any of these problems, give this product a try, you wont regret it. :)
