Must have improved after 5yrs
Okay so I first tried this product over 5 years ago. I love CE ferulic and have used the whole kit in the past. I bounce around on skincare so my skin doesn't get use to stuff, plus I love trying and having different products. I'm a faithful CE ferulic user though. Well I swear in the past five years I've tried this on and off and could never see how or why it was good for my skin, so I stop using it unless I buy the travel kit then I use it to not let it go to waste. Well Last week I got a hydrafacial wand and this is a facial with 3 in 1 visit. They clean my skin with like a glycolic feeling peel which ofcourse makes your skin sensitive. I always wondered though How and WHY my skin looks glowing and smooth, not red like other spas I've been too. Well my esthetician told me my skin was flush, but she used Phyto Gel and it calmed my redness and made my skin glowingly smooth. I was shocked and told her I've used it before, but couldn't single out if it was doing anything for me or not. I take really good care of my skin and get facials almost weekly and I do my own intense moisture masks myself as well. Well she told me when I do go to my other medi spa and get peels or anything that makes me flush, to put this over. Well I was flush the other day and I used this and it sooo Soothed my skin. Now as for discoloration and all, I would know if it works, because I don't have any, but I'm using this now as a preventive measurement. This product is cheap at $60 a bottle, but cheaper and last longer if you buy the Travel size, which comes out to the same amount, but literally almost 60% cheaper..Check amazon and/or ebay. Also sign up for ebates because then it's even cheaper with money rebates.

Love this Face Mist
This is my 2nd favorite facial mist, I say 2nd because my rose water mist is also good to spray in your eyes and helps with eye sight. The price is about $28 at my spa and I absolutely LOVE the smell. I have all the eminence stone crop products mostly for smell purposes. Every now and then if I have a smoke or dry skin from going out the night before, I use this and constantly spray my face throughout the day and during the winter I spray this liberally every hours just for my benefit and preference. This mist is also great to put in a smaller atomizer when traveling on the plane. I travel monthly and the airplanes air can be so damaging and dry for the skin. This really helps to hydrate my face. It is very good to set your makeup or any skincare routine for a nice finish. I'm always buying this, but you can find it cheaper on ebay and amazon unless you need it asap and pay extra at the spa.

Goopy, Sticky & cheaply made
Well I got a sample size of these from sephora and decided to try it. I've used way better products before that actually make my lips to plump. I have full lips already, but love the shiny fullness lip plumps give. This product is gooey, which normally I don't mind, but for this price you get other better moisturizing plumping products such as smashbox. Their lip enhancers are better than most Lip plumpers. This is just like a reguar lipgloss and honeslty I bet wet & wild works better than this. It doesn't do the main thing you buy it for, which is plump! But hey if you want to buy just a lipgloss and blow your money, then go fort it. There are numerous products out there that are much better. I do like Eminence cinnamon lip plumber. It's clear and does the job on the mark, but it is a little pricy, but the tube is large and it lasts a Long time.

Not bad for Retinal product
I bought the Resist kit because it said for all skin type as well as anti-aging. I have more of dry/sensitive skin, but opted to try this with money back guarantee. For a product with retinal it's feels good on the skin and does feel like a real moisture barrier, Not sure if the oily skin type would do well with this. I like the texture of it over the super antioxidant, it really seals the serum in and takes away that sticky feeling. I really can't say if it's doing anything for my skin, but I'm am using this for a preventive measure, and my skin so far feels nice and looks fresh still. For the price I think it's worth a try especially since Paula's site offer 60 days money back guarantee, so you really can't go wrong. I usually don't do well with retinal products, but this one feels great on my skin so I give it an 8 star just for that and cost.

Good for dry skin
I got this a while ago and use it when my skin feels extra dry. It's great for moisture and evens out your skintone. This is in my top 3 for concealers, with IT and bareminerals my top 2. The price is affordable and it's hard to find good concealers. I've gone through dozens and dozens of them just because I'm a makeup addict even though I wear maybe twice a week. I swear my mac is over 5 yrs old and it still works when I use it. No after problems either.

Long lasting and worth the price
I can't give it a ten star because my chemistry has changed , though it still smells good on me and I have to use literally a tad bit to go a long ways. When this first came out in 1998 I fell in love with it and my ex LOVE it on me. It's been one of my signature scents since them, but as I get older it smells so much more mature, must be my chemistry now because there are a lot of perfumes I couldn't use before and now smell great on me. Even the eau de toilette last long and maybe that's my problem now.. I have to use the more water based one because the parfums are more because of the oil base that makes the scent more pure. This is a very sensual scent and not everyone one will smell good with it..I'd say get a sample and wait an hour after you put it on, to really see how it reacts with your chemistry. It use to be an everyday scent I could use, but now it seems more appropriate to use it out with the girls or to a lounge because of how it smells on me. It is an alluring smell, but I fear my time for wearing it is almost up, as where the older I get, the more it's starting to remind me of an grandma like scent. not in a good way, but who want's to smell like a grandmother when you're still young and have little one's who aren't even near graduating yet.

Just a good moisturizer, not filler
So I got into selling avon about 3 years ago for only 6 months and since the products were discounted to sellers I tried pretty everything and used my profit money to buy avon products. Well needless to say it was half and half on what worked and what didn't. Thank god I didn't pay much for this because it doesn't work...AT ALL...it's a good moisturizer, but I was hoping to fill in some of my lines from always raising my brows. It didn't work and my creases are faint not to mention there are products that do work because I've tried them. It's not worth the regular price and is def. false advertisement. Avon does have some Really Great products out there, but because there is so many, there's obviously gonna a lot of products that are failures as well. Good for lip moisturizer at night.

Mixed feelings on this
I first used this about maybe 4 years ago and occassionally use it if my skin feels dehydrated or just relaxing with a bottle of wine at home doing my own spa day. I don't know if it does wonders, but I do know it's thick and takes a while to dry. I've slept with it on and my skin seems to like it. I can't really tell though if it works or not, but I feel it helps to seal and lock in my serums when I put this on after it. It's pretty sticky, but hey beauty isn't really an easy thing to keep up with. I will continue to use it as where my skin is nice and how it was when I was 25 yrs old, so this must be working. It's a pretty good price compared to others out there and you can find it on amazon and ebay cheaper than the spa's for sure.

Seriously waste of Money!
Okay my hubby new I loved Allure and been using it since '98, well he also knows I love my beauty products and spa treatments to help keep my skin nice. Well he should've know better than to by me something I've never used as where I'm very picky. Basically the nordstom's sells lady sold him on this saying it does wonders! Really, and he's suppose to be a good sales person himself, but when it comes to women products, very gullible. He kept pitching what the lady told him, and I asked how does she look? Old he said and bad skin. There you have it, if you're gonna sell, you may as well look the part right? So this was a wasted xmas present that I couldn't bought me much better products. I did use it though and it's moisturizing for your lips, but no miraculous ingredient that other products haven't done for me. I guess it was a 50/50 with him since I got my perfume, but I was so insulted my him getting me this eye cream. I do my research and told him and pointed out the fact that None of the products on my Makeup Vanity have Chanel. Eminence, skinceuticals, nia24 and well pretty much many more are better than this cream not to mention much less expensive. Don't get me wrong, if it works and I love it, I'll pay anything, but if it doesn't than I absolutely Hate it.

Great enhancing and kissable lips
I got a regular size as a sample gift from sephora and the color they gave me was Gorgeous over any lipstain I used. It gave me that pout sultry wanna kiss lips. Unfortunately I could only give this a 6, because I can't seem to find the color they had 2 years ago. SInce then I've bought similar colors and kits and they look nice on my lips, but that's just it. It's nice, not hypnotic. When you find that right color for you, it's like magic. I just wish they sold that miracle color that made my lips irresistible .
