My FAVE of 2008.
I use the Clarisonic twice a day. In the shower in the morning: I apply a pea sized dot of Philosophyâ€™s Purity Cleanser in the center of the brush and start the brush up. I use it for one minute on my face and then another minute on my neck and chest. At night, after I remove my eye makeup, I use another dot of cleanser, usually Purity, but if I feel I am needing extra moisture, I might use a more creamy cleanser. I use the brush over my face for just a minute again, but skip the neck and chest as it is too messy to do that out of the shower. Now, it could just be me, but I swear that my skin serums and moisturizers work much better too. My skin is obviously cleaner than by just washing, and I think this lets my products get right onto the skin - not the particles of dirt and oils that might be left behind without such a thorough cleansing.

Ojon Tawaka - The White Ball
This handcrafted beauty of a ball is made for cleansing and conditioning of the skin. Rub it around over your hands and body in the shower or bath to get clean and super smooth skin. It is pretty addictive as I will probably think twice about returning to body wash again. I love the way that this ball is not only unique, but it smells so nice, almost like a sweet white chocolate. Leaving my skin soft without the need for an extra step of applying body lotion is what probably did it for me in the end.

Love the foam!
The cleanser is creamy, yet light, and a little bit is all you need to get a face full of foamy lather. I love the way it smells, feels, and does itâ€™s job. Makeup is easily removed, along with all dirt and oils. A little extra work is needed to remove stubborn or dark eye liner and mascara, but this can be remedied by using an eye makeup remover first. The end result is a squeaky-clean feel, without feeling fried out or tight. Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam does not tout any special properties, except for the fact that it is gentle, it foams, and it is good for sensitive skin.

From the jar to the formula it is innovative!
This new night cream is formulated with almost next generation skin science with it’s encapsulated and time-releases ingredients: Idebenone, Mega-Complex-A and a blend of high performance moisturizers. With an innovative airless jar, the product is easily dispensed with just one touch, so the cream keeps it’s seal and stays fresh. My skin has truly not looked more radiant since I have been using this night time formula for the past few weeks. My skin wakes up with me refreshed and so moisturized. The 1.7 oz. jar is $125.00 and worth every cent.

Great for Protecting from the Sun.
No matter how hard I try to protect my face from the sun, the freckles, age spots and sun damage are quite apparent during the Summer months. You have no idea how much I put on my face to not only protect it from the sun, but to hide the damage. Oy. And as I am getting older by the second, it is harder and harder to do. When I got this product from DDF called Protect and Correct, I could not wait to give it a try. This is a moisturizing day cream that contains an SPF of 15. This cream is full of potent ingredients such as Niacinamide to help even and correct the skins tone, while full spectrum UVA/UVB ingredients filter out the sun, preventing the damage from happening from the first place,. Don't let the rating of SPF 15 fool you. I like to use an SPF of 50 on my face for daytime use, but this one does an equally fantastic job guarding my face from the sun, as the sunscreens are broad spectrum, not letting any bit sunlight from further damaging my skin. This moisturizer is perfect for my dry skin, as it is a bit on the thicker side, and makes it instantly feel more hydrated. After just a few weeks of use, I am totally noticing that my skin is more even, overall. I am still working o particular areas, which I will undoubtedly continue to do for a while. In the meantime, this is great for everyday.

For an Instant Boost!
Based on the Bliss Spaâ€™s famous Triple Oxygen Treatment Facial, this easy do it yourself treatment brings a quick boost of oxygen to your skin at home. image Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is a really unique mini-mask that I am totally in love with. This treatment is designed to brighten up dull and tired looking skin. While I havenâ€™t noticed it making that much of a difference in how my skin looks, this energizing mask certainly makes my dull and tired feeling skin feel more vibrant and awake. To use, I dampen my face with wet fingers, squeeze out three or four pumps of this citrus-y smelling, creamy gel. You will start to feel the gel quickly start to foam up and tingle - almost tickle. In a good way, I must add. It feels so refreshing. I leave the mask on for a total of five minutes, then rinse. It is simple to use and itâ€™s a great, quick and efficient pick-me up for the skin.

Fabulous Drugstore Find!
RoC Age Diminishing Facial Cleanser is a nice thicker gel type of cleanser, enriched with conditioning soy extracts. It is gentle while being hard working at the same time. Makeup and dirt is removed without stripping skin of its natural moisture balance. This is very important because harsh, abrasive cleansers can make wrinkles appear more evident and make anti-aging treatments work harder. The conditioning soy extracts and help to even skin tone and reduce rough surface skin. What you get - softer, smoother, younger-looking skin. This cleanser is almost the consistency of shampoo, that foams into a bit of a lather when washing your face. It has a nice scent, but because of it being scented a bit more on the strong side, which can be eye irritating, I suggest using an eye makeup remover around the eye area first.

My Favorite DDF Cleanser!
Out of all of the DDF Cleansers I am trying, I think this is my favorite. This is a thicker cream than the Cellular Cleansing Complex, and it coats my skin and seems to almost melt into my skin as it removes makeup and such. There is virtually no smell to this one, and I really appreciate how moisturized my face feels after using it. It is perfect for night time when more moisture is needed to lock in with a night cream overnight.

If You Can Handle A Glycolic Wash - This is One to Use!
This is a gel wash that does have a bit of a foaming action. It is heavily scented with a menthol like smell, which can be refreshing, if you donâ€™t mind the heavy smell. This cannot be used around the eyes, so an eye makeup remover is needed in addition to this one for removing eye makeup at the end of the day. This wash leaves my face feeling extraordinarily clean and fresh, but I have been using it just once or twice a week.
