    PMD Personal Microderm

    Smoother, brighter skin!

    I have never had a professional microdermabrasion procedure, so I cannot compare the feeling or results to one. However, after using the PMD 3 times (spaced 1 week apart), my face is definitely softer and I believe brighter as well! I swear that in the last few weeks I have been noticing more of a glow to my skin that I haven’t seen in a while! It could be the power of suggestion, but even my husband (who is completely unaware of this device!) has commented on differences in my skin. The PMD is super simple to use - it makes a bit of noise and was thus a bit intimidating to try on my face the first time (I did practice on my arms first, but still...your face is much more sensitive!!). It doesn't hurt at all though, and after you start using it you catch the hang of it very quickly. I have so far only used the "blue" discs (for sensitive skin) and will probably continue to use them for the next couple of treatments before working my way up to the green discs. I love that it comes with enough discs (2 blue and 1 green discs for both your face and your body) to get you started so that you don't have to immediately buy additional discs. The instructions (and included video) are very clear on what to do and what not to do. Because it comes with discs to use on your body, I started using the PMD on my upper arms where I have lots of bumps (keratosis pilaris). I've only used it twice there so far and I honestly can’t say that I have noticed much of a difference, but I am very hopeful considering I have only used the blue body disc and I think one of the more aggressive discs (like the red coarse disc) will probably provide me better results. In fact, I think I’m going to order some of those tonight so I can give them a try.  If you’re on the fence about trying this product, I would say to go for it. I am very happy with the results I am seeing after only a few uses, and considering how inexpensive this device is compared with professional treatments, it pays for itself very quickly.

  • Gillette Venus Embrace Razor

    I always love the latest venus razor better than I did the last, and I especially love this one. Absolutely no nicks or razor burn, which I had started to get with just the regular venus blades. A great close shave...I love it!

  • Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer With Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30

    A little greasy feeling when you first put it on to me, but it quickly goes away and feels light once it's absorbed. No real scent, which is nice. Good SPF factor for a daily moisturizer.

  • Aveeno Pure Renewal Conditioner

    Aveeno Pure Renewal Conditioner

    Great conditioner!

    I’ve been using this conditioner along with the Aveeno Pure Renewal Shampoo for about a week now. I think the shampoo does a great job cleaning my hair, and this conditioner seems to add a nice amount of shine and leaves my hair nice and soft. I think it’s a great daily (or every other day) conditioner that isn’t too heavy or greasy. I haven’t used it with a different brand of shampoo, but I think the Pure Renewal set pairs nicely and I plan to make this set a staple in my shower.

  • Aveeno Pure Renewal Shampoo

    I’ve been using this shampoo along with its matching conditioner for about a week now, and I am in love with it. My hair tends to be very greasy by the end of the day, even if I don’t use any additional products on it…which means I am constantly fighting dandruff issues. I learned a long time ago I need to keep changing up my shampoos to avoid excess build-up…but lately I’ve started to have a hard time finding shampoos that don’t irritate my scalp and make it itchy. This shampoo does a great job cleansing my hair and removing build-up…I haven’t had a single flake since I started using this shampoo. It’s only been a week, but I do not think that it has overstripped or dried out my hair at all…it is very soft and manageable. Best of all is that it seems to be adding a bit of shine to it, too. I haven’t had any reaction to it in terms of itchiness so I think it’s a definite new staple in my shower!

  • Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss

    I like the smoothness of Jouer’s lip glosses, but I do not like that the tint they provide is not very long lasting. I also think that the color it provides is not even...it’s not terrible, but I have to really smack my lips around to get it to get it to look more even, particularly with the darker colors. I very much like the feel of the gloss – it’s very smooth – and it isn’t overly sticky (which drives me crazy in lip glosses). I love how moisturizing the gloss is…that’s a major reason I keep using it. A tube does last me a really long time…even with pretty frequent re-applications. I also love that they offer it in so many very pretty colors…and somehow they all seem to look good no matter your skin tone. I just wish the tint was a little more even and that the color lasted a bit longer.

  • Befine Night Cream
    8.0

    Befine Night Cream

    Pretty good

    Befine night cream is a nice gentle daily moisturizer. I don’t know that I think that it is anything particularly special…but it does a nice job keeping skin hydrated. It goes on smoothly and is not too think or creamy. In fact, it was definitely more liquid like than creamy, but that meant that a little went a long way. I didn’t notice any huge changes or benefits which I used it for about a month, but it never broke me out. To me, the scent was almost negligible. For the price, it’s a great value for a nice moisturizer that will last you a pretty long time. I think it’s a good option for use after a treatment which makes your face irritated or more sensitive (like a peel or waxing) or if you get sunburned. For that reason, I might repurchase so that I have it on hand when I need something gentle.

  • Essie Luxeeffects Glitter Top Coat

    The Essie Luxeffects glitter top coat polish is a fun product to try for a different kind of look. For me, the only thing that keeps me from loving the product is that it kind of looks at first glance like I have polish that is just chipping away since the glitter flecks are scattered around my nails. I have not tried it over a dark base coat, but I think at least for me that might make it look a little better (as in, it might stand out more). Also, I tried the pink glitter, but a darker shade of glitter might actually show up better on my already pink-hued nails. It applies well and dries very quickly…and it seems to set nice and hard. It also lasts a while without chipping or peeling. I can’t wait to share it with my little niece who loves to paint her nails because I think she’ll absolutely love it.

  • Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner

    I never used to wear eye liner but this product has converted me! I find that it goes on easily, lets you smudge it to soften it in (if you do it right away), and it lasts a long time on my. After it sets in it will not budge, but it still washes away easily when you are ready to. I do not heavily line my eyes, but for a little something extra, it is a great eye liner. And, for someone like me who is new to lining my eyes, I think it is very easy to apply. I do wish I could get the point a little sharper…sometimes it seems a little too flat or dull as it comes out, but it is also handy that you do not actually need a sharpener to use it…you just twist the handle. I absolutely love it and plan to buy more in all the different colors it is available in.

  • Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Stain

    I love the way this lip stain is so easily applied. It goes on extremely smoothly and evenly. I find it adds a good amount of moisture to my lips. It does rub off on things and does not last as long as other lip tints that I have tried, but it gets lots of bonus points from me for being made of natural ingredients (especially as other companies have been in the news lately for having lead in their lipstick!). It also has a slight subtle minty taste which is quite pleasant. I wish it came in more shades…some don’t quite look right on me (they seem to be a little too pink). The packaging is kind of fun…it looks like a giant crayon…but in some ways it is a little big and would be nice if it was a little smaller so that it fit in your purse or make up case a little better.
