  • Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

    I can honestly say this product is worth much more than $85. After using an entire bottle, the results were as good as some of the more expensive stuff and prescription strength stuff out there. My skin was visibly brighter with reduction in hyperpigmentation areas, moderate reduction of fine lines. I wanted to keep using this product, but the rep at Estee Lauder suggested that this should be only used once in a while. So I stopped for about 6 months. When I used this product again 6 months later, the results were not as visible as the first time I used it. But still very highly recommended.

    Aquaphor Healing Ointment

    great moisturizer for very sensitive allergic skin

    I recently had an allergic reaction to Prevage. During the reaction the skin on my face was red and itchy. And almost everything I put on makes it worse. The only thing I tolerated well was Aquaphor. Very good for sensitive skin. But definitely very thick and oilly. I can only put it on at night when I didnt see anyone else. Otherwise it would be way too oilly during the day.

    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    Suprisingly good product

    The first time I saw this product was on an infomercial, I was really skeptical. Then, I tried it and was pleasantly suprised. Me: 30 years old, combination to dry skin, few fine lines, some hyperpigmentation spots The Good: 1. Very good coverage: The introductory pakage comes with two different brushes. The kabuki give better coverage, and it's still natural. If you use their concealer brush, and use the foundation powder as a concealer, it works amazingly well!!! Better than any concealers I have used in the past. And the concealed thspot blends in well with the rest of the face without looking cakey. 2.Doesn't clog pores/cause breakouts: I sometimes works more than 24 hours straight with less than an hour of sleep. And at work, I never had to take it out. The second day, no breakout. This has never happened with other foundations. Downside: 1. Can be cakey when your skin is dry: Since this product comes in powder form, it does not go on well when my skin is very dry in the winter, it will only make my skin look dryer. In the winter I tend sometimes to use other liquid foundations which doesn't have this problem. 2. Can be messy: I am clumsy. Each of the small round containers is small compared to the brushes that comes with the introductory package, Sometimes I am not careful, and I can tap the powder all over the place, slightly messier than I would like.

    Prevage Anti-Aging Treatment

    allergic reaction

    I was so disapointed when I had allergic reaction this this product!! I read through the instructions before I started using it, and it warned of possible allergic reaction. I didn't think it was going to happen to me!!! After I used it for a few days, I had a delayed onset reaction with rash, itching red face. It took almost two weeks to resolve. At first I didn't know it was this product. So I tested all the skincare products I was using at the time on different areas of my arm. And this product gave me the same reaction again. I had heard so many good things about this product, now I'll never find out if it works =(

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer

    I feel ambiguous about this primer. The first time I used it,I could not blend my foundation over it. The primer and my liquid foundation basically coagulated into a chunky mess and started flaking off. I thought it was probably because I didn't wait long enough for it to set in first before I applied the foundation. So I tried the primer with a couple of other foundations and let it set first. The same thing still happened!! So I left it in my cometic drawer for a while. The other day I tried it again, and it actually worked fine with my current foundation. It got rid of my large pores and made my skin looker smoother and flawless, like air brushed in a magazine.

  • Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash

    I love Aveeno. Many of their products have oatmeal in them which is great for superdry or very sensitive skin, especially those who have eczema. It will relieve the dryness and itchiness and get rid of flaky skin

  • Kinerase Cream with SPF 30

    I'm a big fan of Kinerase. This product just proves that not everything in a good line is worth the price. Afer using this, I wouldn't even pay $10 again to buy it. I bought this initially because it has spf 30 and usually products from kinerase are pretty good. I find this cream really drying, and streaky. I have to spend a long time in front of the mirror trying to get rid of the white streaks before I apply my foundation. The worst part is that sometimes it absolutely will not blend with some foundations and flakes off. I am not quite sure what to do with the rest of this product that I'm not using. I try to use on my body as a body cream, and it flakes off too. Don't buy this product.
