    Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Instant Mineral SPF 45

    Well it doesn't feel Greasy & cheaper than Eminence

    So I give it a little higher than I like because my girls both have a brush of their own. They hate the greasy feeling of the lotion though I force them to wear both, but they love the powder. It feels like makeup and is so much easier to apply. This was on sale at my spa, so I bought like 4 of them. I use this as a back up, but the bristles on the brush and pretty ruff. Though for only $30 a pop as opposed to Eminence, which I lOVE at over $50, I would say for kids, it's better to go with PTR. It does last a while and is good in sealing in makeup or or bb creams. If you have a hard time getting kids to use Sublock, this is a great alternative than always having to constantly nag them and make sure they protect their skin. I do have to say that it works great on your hands. I tried using it on my decolletage, but I felt itchy and rash like after trying it several times.

    Make Up For Ever HD Foundation Invisible Cover Foundation

    Great product and Buy for Photoshoots

    So I got this as a gift from my girlfriend when she took me b-day shopping at sephora's. I was looking for makeup to use in my photo shoots and on my daughter's when we take pics. This product is FANTASTIC! I use only a little and it goes a long ways. I don't even need concealer, I just use the microfinish powder that came with it. My skin looks soo flawless like when I was 21 again and never used foundation. My bottle has lasted me 7 months, but I use very little, not to mention only wear makeup for shoots or pics maybe a few times a month. It's a little in higher price range, more than bare minerals, but also Much better! I never cared for minerals though I wanted too. This is one of my top 2 favorite foundations and by far my first pick for any photo ops you have coming up. Worth the buy, for pictures that last for years!

  • Yes To Cucumbers Eye Love Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel

    Yes To Cucumbers Eye Love Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel

    Waste of money on a water Based product!

    Last year I got a daily deal for 50% off, so I decided to get the whole cucumber kit as well as Blueberry. This was Horrible! It felt like just water on my eyes. I tried making use and using it on my face and chest, but it did absolutely NOTHING!. In fact it was kind of flaking and peeling off of my eyes, like I put a mask on. I contacted the company and asked about it, but they just sent me a complementary whole kit of Everything in this product line. I ended up giving the extra away. I somehow got another one, thinking the cucumber would help with my eyes puffing up after having juviderm, but it did NOthing again. Other products work much better, in fact stick to Tea bags and the Real cucumbers if you want your money's worth as well as saving money, time and effort.

  • Paula's Choice RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator

    I like this product, though I can't say I can see any difference. I don't really have wrinkles yet, except when I smile you see 2 lines, but they go away when I stop smiling. This is a very low cost product and it does feel good after using it over the super antioxidant serum. For the price I do like it, but I haven't seen any improvement in my skin. I'm wondering if I'm allergic or certain resist products don't agree with my skin, but I'm hanging in their. I don't have sunspots, breakout or any skin problems aside from getting really dry during winter times. My skin is more on my Asian side, though it's starting to feel like my caucasian is making a breakthrough and terrorizing my once oily skin. The resist producst are geared toward all skin types, but if you get dry like myself or like to over do it on cocktails every now and then, You should try her Very dry or sensitive line. Now that it's winter, I think I need more moisture barrier based products. This would be good for spring or summer time.

  • Paula's Choice RESIST Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser

    Now for the price, the texture and the feel on my skin, I absolutely LOVE this cleanser! It's great for my sesitive skin and does the job WELL, I hardly have to use any toner after this because it cleanse my skin soft. It doesn't burn and it's kind of like Cetaphil for sensitive skin, but Much better!! This is a really good product and you really can't beat the price on this.

  • Paula's Choice RESIST Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer with SPF 25 & Antioxidants

    SO this product is pretty cool with the twist tube, problem is, when you close it, you'll have that extra coming out. I suggest just squeeze it a tad bit and then close it, so you don't waste the extra amount. This is a minor flaw. Now the texture is not too bad and the spf, could be higher for the price, but I always use about 3 different kinds of sunscreen as well as my bb or tinted moisturizers have spf as well. I do thing it is a bit over rated and that Peter Thomas roth works much better or Skinceuticals. I got this in the kit for Resist and it's not exactly my favorite, but for only paying about $100 with a discount everything came out to under $15 a piece, so you really can't beat the price average. If you are looking for a Really good spf than spend the extra 10-15 bucks on Roth, Skinc or La Roche for sure!

  • Paula's Choice RESIST Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum

    Okay I bought the whole Resist Kit as well as the mask for Very dry skin. It's winter and I'm looking to try new products and I get dry skin to the point where I just use 100% coconut oil and it cures all, probably with that, is I can't wear make up or go out in public without looking like an oil soaked dripping rat. oKAY i i REALLY Really want to like here products, and I'm still giving it a try. I do like this antioxident and it is moisturizing, but I have to wait a good 10 minutes before applying my moisturizer and then longer to apply makeup so it doesn't run. I don't wear much makeup, but still this is better used very lightly. I like to pack it on at night and then dose up a lot under my eyes, which does do wonders and for the prices. Well it's about $26 on paula's site and literally over 50% save than my other eye products and serum. I would say this is a decent investment, but you can find MUCH better products out their if you're willing to pay the price.. In this case you get what you pay for. I love her books, which is why I decided to try her products, it also has money back guarantee, but I sure hope It starts surprising me like other users have spoken wonder about.

  • InStyler The Rotating Iron

    InStyler The Rotating Iron

    Very handy, if you have long Hair so you don't burn yourself

    Okay so I've been using curlers on my hair for ver 30 yrs and now I use it on my daughters which have long hawaiian hair like I use too. I bought this off of ebay brand new purple for only 60 bucks and it was a Great investment. I do wish though I got the bigger barrel as where this one is better on long hair like my girls. It gives them beautiful locks. Careful though you can burn yourself if you rushing or not paying a attention. My hair is bra length and I burned my ear.. Ouch! I am hoping to buy the topstyler, but I have a bout 10 different curing products from every brand and I am a bit hesitant on spending $80 on a product that I have other curlers that work Wonderful, yet the topystyler like the instyler is very travel friendly. I love to dress my girls up and curl their hair for pictures. I have to confess I kinda burned my little one by accident when I was trying to curl every strand of hair. All in all though this product is a Great investment, but I'm glad I got a better deal from ebay over a year ago.

  • Secret Outlast Clear Gel

    Secret Outlast Clear Gel

    Smells great, but to wet for me

    I received this in the mail and have been using it for over 3 weeks. I love the smell, but it doesn't dry as fast or into a powder on me. Perhaps it's my chemistry as where I do sweat a lot under my arms. I wish this worked for me, but so far only degree keeps everything such as odor, sweat and yuckiness at bay. I don't sweat anywhere except when I am really hot or cold sweat under my arms and this just not give me the confidence in using it during my hardcore workouts at the gym.. This probably for for the average person who doesn't sweat as much as I do, but for someone like me..it's a real bust!

  • SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic

    SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic

    great before sun

    I have been using this for 5 yrs, but I switch it up with others. It is fantastic for dry skin or eczema. Worth the price and extra protection against the sun. You can by them by the sample trials on amazon and ebay & I tested it out, all 6 small travel sizes amount to the regular bottle size that sells for $146 where as the travel sizes of 6 bottles cost about 35-42 bucks. Be careful though sometimes they turn orange, it should be clear because that means it's more new and hasn't oxidized yet. It still works when it's orange, but clear is better. They say to buy it from spa's to be safe, but I bought a sample travel kit from my spa, and the CE Ferulic was already orange, so basically you want to hold it up to the light and you can tell if it's clear or has turned orange. You can always ask the seller what is the manufacturing date on it to be safe. If you buy it from skincueticals site, you'll of course get the best product and can always send it back if it's not clear, but it is very pricey, but the CE ferulic is worth every penny!
