Here are all my reviews:
  • L'Occitane Shea Butter Nail & Cuticle Cream

    This product does smell nice and isn't greasy at all. It does seem to help dry nails and cuticles - but it's time-consuming to apply properly. And a bit expensive compared to other products.

  • Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser for Face and Eyes

    This cleanser does exactly what it promises to do - leaves skin thoroughly clean yet not overly dry. It really does remove make-up - though if you wear a lot of eye-makeup you might want to use a remover first to avoid too much pulling around the eye area. However, it can be used alone for even heavy make-up with a little extra attention paid to eyes, and this makes it great for traveling. Not only does it not leave skin feeling overly dry, but it doesn't leave you feeling greasy or heavily scented. I hate cleansers that try to be moisturizers - I neve really feel clean fater using them. Chances are, you'll love this reasonably priced product as much as I do.

  • L'Oreal Paris Sublime Slim Night
    7.0

    L'Oreal Paris Sublime Slim Night

    Great for some things but...

    I used this product in conjunction with the day cream. There's no doubt that it improved the texture and quality of my skin. It moisturizes very effectively and does not have an objectionable smell, as some anti-cellulite products do. It's nt terribly expensive and is readily available. But - and this is kind of crucial - it really didn't seem to do much to tighten the skin or "get rid" of cellulite. Cellulite looks better when your skin is not dry - but it's still there.

  • Philosophy The Supernatural Lip Pencil

    I hate struggling with finding just the right lip liner shade. This product's "natural" and "neutral" shades are nearly universal. The product goes on smoothly and stays on. My only quibbles are that the pencil seems to get dry after a few weeks and breaks off easily. Otherwise this would be a 10!

  • Philosophy Amazing Grace Restorative Perfumed Hand Cream

    This is a nice enough hand cream, and I love the Amazing Grace scent. However, the scent fades quickly from this tube once it's been opened or even around for a while. My tube has virtually no scent left at all - and with so many hand creams available, the scent is probably the reason we bought this!

  • Lancome Absolue Hand
    8.0

    Lancome Absolue Hand

    love it but...

    This is a wonderful hand crream - a little does go a long way, it's not greasy and absorbs quickly, it has a light scent that does not interfere with perfume, and - most importantly - it has an effective sunscreen. However - the tube is hard to squeeze, and gets even harder near the end of the tube. If you have arthritis or carpal tunnel issues, as I do, you may reluctantly find yourself reaching for an easier solution for dry hands. Lancome are you listening???

  • Ahava Pure Mask Energizing Body Mud Mask

    This is messy, yes. It itches a little when it's dry, but fortunately that feeling doesn't last. Be sure to really scrub thoroughly - it won't just rinse off. Worth it? Yes - the result is smooth, soft skin. It's especially nice when you feel the need to detoxify - I used it after visiting my parents, both smokers.

  • Caswell-Massey Elixir Of Love No.1 Hand Cream

    This hand cream smells wonderful (don't be put off by the silly name of the scent!) and it absorbs quickly without being greasy. On the downside, if your hands are very dry, you'll want to reapply aftwer an hour or so. Of course, since it smells so good, you might want to!

  • Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Bar

    What a great soap! Delightful scent, not drying at all. I try to find the smaller bars as the big one can be hard to hold if, like me, you have arthritis - but then again, it's worth the effort. The scent works for both men and women, incidently, and will not interfere with your perfume - but it also is a nice base for citrus scents.

  • Matrix Sleek.look Waterfree Hair Spray

    Ont he one hand, this product does exactly what it says it will do: keeps the frizzies at bay and help my carefully straightened hair stay that way. On the other - it smells terrible, like somebody's chemistry lab project gone awry. After shampooing and conditioning my hair, I hate to coat it with something I have to hold my breath to spray. The smell does fade as it dries, but if your hair gets at all damp, it comes right back. If Matrix ever fixes this problem, I'll use this product forever. Until then....I'll have to pass.
