Here are all my reviews:
  • Kérastase Elixir Ultime

    I use this anytime I blow dry my hair. You only need 2-3 small pumps, depending on your length, work it through from ends to mid-part of the hair (it will move closer to the root as you blow dry, but you don't want an oily scalp) and then blow dry as usual. My stylist also recommended I could mix it with whatever styling creme I use (for hold) and adjust the cocktail, depending on how slick you want your hair. It's a great product -- seems expensive, but very high quality. Defintely worth it for my fine, but curly/frizzy highlighted hair.

  • Dr. Bronner's Tea Tree Liquid Soap

    I love this soap -- a lot goes a long way. Also makes me feel good that it is a "green" choice. My boyfriend also likes this scent --it's gender neutral. Refreshing and leaves me feeling clean!

  • Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

    Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

    pretty good but pricey

    I like the way this looks once it is on (I like it much better than the MAC version of gel eyeliner) except that the eyeliner dries on my brush very hard and crusty...i have to re-wash my eyeliner brush very well every day. It's also kind of expensive.

  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Touche Éclat Radiant Touch

    It's a strange sort of thing -- doesn't seem to do much, but when I step away from the mirror, I notice a big difference. I use in combo w/ my Cle de Peau concealer if I have a lot of dark circles or redness anywhere on my face. Layering this on top (which NEVER cakes or cracks) adds a freshness and brightness to my complexion. Esp. under the eyes. Love it. Only drawback is how expensive it is. So i am giving it 9 instead of 10.

  • Kinerase Under Eye Rescue
    8.0

    Kinerase Under Eye Rescue

    nice eye cream

    Really hydrating, helps plump up the tiny lines around my eyes. It is also not too heavy -- I get milia (small white bumps, not zits) on the thin skin under my eyes if I use too heavy an eye cream. AND I also have dry skin - so it always seems to be a sort of lose/lose situation. But this one is just right. Doesn't do a lot for bags or puffiness, though.

    OPI Start To Finish

    great product

    great all-in-one product. I often use this several times a week to make my manicure from the salon last. I also think it's great that you know it's formaldehyde free!

  • Burt's Bees Vitamin E Body and Bath Oil

    It's a fine body oil, but the lemon scent really surprised me (the top is sealed in plastic in the store...was startled how fragrant it was once i opened it) I kind of think it smells like lemon household cleaner. Does moisturize and soak in, but wouldn't buy it again because of the smell.

  • Chanel Les 4 Ombres

    I use this in Sand Dunes pretty much every single day. Every color is usable and work so well together. The shimmer isn't "sparkly" -- they just glow and flatter your eyes. I love the darkest color as an eyeliner. Get complements all the time. Highly recommended. Sometimes wish the pigment was a bit more intense (think mac eyeshadow), but the thing is, this product builds really well and looks so natural -- I think it is designed that way.

  • Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Gel

    I hated this stuff. It's a weird gel consistency that never really feels like it "sinks in" (think aloe vera gel ---the way it sort of dries on the top of the skin in sticky/mask-like feel) My skin felt itchy, uncomfortable and not at all moisturized. Maybe my sensitive skin just rejected it, but i've used a lot of high-end and low-end night cream products and this is the absolute worst. (my sister who has dry, tougher skin hated it too -- I gave her the rest of my jar.)

  • Kérastase Nutritive Oléo-Relax

    I have curly hair -- it's thin, but I have a lot of it! It is dry (highlights!) and naturally frizzes up goes everywhere if I don't put products in it, BUT my roots get greasy easily. An odd combination. I love this product for several reasons. 1) This product detangles my hair and makes in manageable wet when I first begin to style it. 2) The only serum I've used that doesn't make my hair greasy. (I've used Bumble and Bumble products for years and thought I was getting the best products available...their shine serum doen't compare.) 3) It makes my hair shiny and defined without the grease or stickiness of some products.
