  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Drying Cream

    I'm in the process of trying a number of Mario's acne products. This was the first one I tried based on a recommendation in Women's Health. It works best on cystic type acne-not whiteheads. It's oily feel was a little alarming, but it really does speed up the healing time on these painful, stubborn type of pimples-drying them up faster. With this type of acne, miracles are just that-hard to come by and this is not a miracle worker, but a really good helper.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Drying Lotion

    This is a great product for delivering a powerful punch down of whitehead pimples. I've noticed significant decreasing of inflammation, and healing time of my booboos. Downside is your going to bed with pink menthol smelling dots-not exactly romantic. BUT overall this is a really good product for healing acne (try his other product for cystic acne though).

  • Patricia Wexler M.D. Dual Action Foaming Cleanser

    I've been using this cleanser for about a month. I've observed a noticeable difference in the clarity of my skin. Also the cleanser leaves your skin feeling silky (I still follow it with a moisturizer of course). This is the only skincare product I've tried by Wexler, and I'm inclined to give others for a spin now...

  • Conair ION Shine Travel Ionic Styler

    Ok so the handle broke within a few months. I of course didn't have the receipt so I jerry rigged it with tape. Hmm. Does that say anything about the quality of this product or about my stinginess at buying a new drier. I'm on the hunt now though...

  • Aveda Color Conserve Shampoo
    5.0

    Aveda Color Conserve Shampoo

    Severely overpriced

    I'm not sure why the website has the price so low, but expect to pay quite more. Frankly I know there are better color preserving shampoos out there. It's too low sudsing for my preference, so I end up using more to distribute it evenly. Big bite on that one considering the cost. Keep shopping ladies.

  • N.V. Perricone Gentle Cleanser (Olive Oil Polyphenols)

    This product is wonderful and great for sensitive skin. The price is a bit of a shocker, but it feels luxurious and leaves your skin soft and refreshed. The bottle lasts a long time.

  • Clinique Continuous Rescue Antioxidant Moisturizer

    I was looking for a moisturizer with antioxidants and saw this listed on webmd. I think it works good as a moisturizer, however it doesn't smooth over your skin easily, so I feel like I have to use more than if it did. I also wish it included a sunscreen-what's the point of repairing/protecting sun damage if you have to apply more products to your face and spend more money? Clinique, just add spf15 already. I will probably try something else next time.

  • Conair Velvet Touch for Blow-Dry Styling

    I love this little brush, and it's pretty much the only styling brush I need. I have thick, course hair (short to med length depending on my moods) and I get teh control I need with this tool.

  • Estee Lauder Tender Blush
    8.0

    Estee Lauder Tender Blush

    Nice application

    Ok so I got it in an estee gift and didn't drop the $25 on it, but I might consider it after using it. I am no blush expert, but I know the nude rose is the most complimentary color I've used. The cost is prohibitive for me-I'd rather spend $25 on skin care products. So I'll keep hoping they put this great blush in their gift bags. If money is no object this may be your blush.

  • Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo
    7.0

    Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo

    Smells Fabulous

    Ok, there may not be a better smelling shampoo on the market. The product is a bit low sudsing for me, so it seems like I end up using more-which sucks for an expensive product like this. If you have short hair or fine hair you might have better luck.
