  • Aveda Tourmaline Charged Exfoliating Cleanser

    I have oily, sensitive skin (yes, that is an oxy-moron, but true). I'd been using Dove to wash my face for years, but thought that I'd give this cleanser a try since I rotate Aveda shampoos and conditioners on my hair. I use this with my Clairsonic Skin Brush and my skin looks and feels FABULOUS! I like the fact that the beads aren't too numerous or TOO big that could irritate my skin (as other scrubs/exfoliators have done in the past). It's a moisturizer as well as cleanser, which works PERFECT on my skin. I HIGHLY recommend this product. I've found a GREAT new cleanser! WHOO HOO!!!

    Laura Mercier Lip Glace

    Good Coverage

    I purchased this gloss in the spring of 2008 at a Trend Show at Nordstrom. I purchased it in the color petal. I didn't like the way it smelled and felt (a little thick for my liking), but the color is great and the wear is pretty good. It doesn't dry out my lips like Chanel glosses. I think the amount of gloss in the tube is sufficient for the price, too.

  • Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes - Hydrating

    You don't have to rub hard and these towels are VERY soft and remove makeup better than anything I've tried with out that "slick" finish that most removers leave.

  • Laura Mercier Mineral Finishing Powder

    I used this for 2 days and returned it. I ended up having a muddy finish on my face, after an hour. It also looked cakey and covered different on different areas on my face. Maybe I am one of those that can't do mineral powders, but this one was bad.

  • Nars Powder Foundation

    Nars Powder Foundation

    Good for me!

    I just wish they'd sell the sponges that come with them, individually. In addition, similar to what another reviewer stated, it would be great if you could pop "refills" in this instead of having to purchase the ENTIRE CASE, again. As far as coverage, I am normal to oily in the warmer months and normal in the cooler months. This gives me great light, non-cakey coverage. I use this in conjunction with the MAC Oil Control Lotion in the warmer months and it's been giving me great coverage.

  • Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Complexion Correction Pads

    I use this in combination with the 10% glycolic moisturizer and my skin LOVES me for it. I will say that I use the MAX correction pads and the days I don't use them, I can SEE a difference in my skin. The pads have 2 different textures (one on each side). One is for the "tougher" places (neck and chin) and the other is for the more gentle places (remaining parts of the face). I LOVE this product and HIGHLY recommend it!

  • MAC Oil Control Lotion

    MAC Oil Control Lotion

    Worked well for me!

    I used this, in conjunction with the blotting powder (pressed) on my wedding day. I was FLAWLESS the entire 93 degree day! I loved this lotion because I have acne-prone semi-oily skin. This was a light lotion that worked VERY well for me.

  • MAC Blot Powder Pressed
    10.0

    MAC Blot Powder Pressed

    The Best on a HOT Wedding Day

    My stylist used this on me the day of my wedding. WOW!! It was 93 degrees the day we got married and A LOT of our pictures were outside. I didn't have a shiny face on ONE of them! She used this on me twice that day. I have oily skin and this powder leaves me looking great with a great matte finish. I like the pressed powder due to it's convenience of being portable and can carry in your purse (vs the loose).

  • Aveda Hand Relief
    6.0

    Aveda Hand Relief

    Eh, I've seen better, but it's still good

    This hand moisturizer (watch it, a little goes a LONG WAY) is good, but its benefits are temporary.....lasting about a hour and then it's slop up, again!

  • Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer

    I LOVE this moisturizer! This is coming from someone who had acne scars and this moisturizer makes my skin feel like SILK on a baby's butt (THAT's SOFT)! In addition, the "gentle exfoliating" it performs is PERFECT for my oily and sensitive skin (YES, you read that correctly.......I am oily as Crisco and sensitive as an orchid in direct sunlight!).
