Here are all my reviews:
  • Juice Organics Vitamin Antioxidant Serum

    Received this serum as a sample and used it after cleaning with the Juice Organics Milk Cleanser and before applying the Nutrient Moisturizer . . . . this really diminished the few acne scars I do have and the hyperpigmentation (white marks) from sun damage. My skin felt moist and nourished. I would recommend this product to everyone who wants a good, FDA approved organic serum!

    Juice Organics Daily Nourishing Moisturizer

    Wonderful Organic Moisturizer!

    I received a sample of the Juice Organics Daily Nourishing Moisturizer and after using it was totally blown away by how fabulous my skin looked! I woke to very smooth skin, very evenly toned, and the fine lines and wrinkles were dramatically diminished!

  • Revaleskin Illuminesse Brightening Complex

    This is the gold standard of brightening serums . . . and I haved tried many of them . . . it is very lightweight and soothing to the skin . . . it renders one's skin nearly poreless . . . and is very easily absorbed. My face looked very bright, dewy, and evenly toned . . . slight acne scars and discolorations seemed to disappear. This is a great lotion to wear beneath the Revaleskin SPF 15 day lotion or just alone, with a good tinted moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or higher. Great, wonderful product.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Honey Moisturizer

    I recently filled out a very detailed questionnaire on the Mario Badescu website and received some very nice-sized samples of skin care products they felt were appropriate for my combination/oily/sensitive skin. Among them was the Honey Moisturizer. WOW!!!!!! After using the Orange Cream Cleanser, and applying the Aloe Toner, I gently applied the Honey Moisturizer along with the Glycolic Eye Cream. Amazing results!!!! All of the little bumps beneath my skin disappeared, which was surprising since the consistency of the Honey Moisturizer is quite thick - a little goes a VERY long way. For nighttime use, I have the Bee Pollen Moisturizer, which is also fabulous . . . my skin looks very even, smooth and dewy, with the fine lines on my forehead and upper lip considerably diminished. I plan on purchasing the entire line of products, but will add the Collagen Daytime SPF 15 Moisturizer for daytime sun protection.

  • Revaleskin Night Cream

    I received a bottle of this miraculous lotion from a friend, and it is absolutely FABULOUS! My skin has never looked more even . . . the tone is definitely improved, and my fine lines have gradually diminished. As with many topical products, one has to use it for at least a month to see positive results . . . but it is very light - not greasy at all! - absorbs quickly, and when I wake up in the morning, my face feels like a newborn's. Yes, it's QUITE pricey, but definitely worth it!

  • Jessica McClintock Eau de Parfum Spray
    8.0

    Jessica McClintock Eau de Parfum Spray

    Very light and refreshing for spring and summer!

    This is a great perfume to wear during the day . . . and for a casual evening. It is evocative of a classy Edwardian tea party (think "Downton Abbey") and has a very lovely lily of the valley scent, that gradually evolves into a pristine, uber-feminine aura . . . and I can imagine Lady Mary and the Dowager Empress delicately anointing this perfume behind their ears and on their pulse points if it had indeed existed during that time!

  • St. Ives Soothing Oatmeal Shea

    St. Ives Soothing Oatmeal Shea

    Great for Dry, Itchy Skin!

    This is a great body lotion for very dry, itchy skin. It absorbs well and is very moisturizing and is an EXCELLENT bargain - much better than Eucerin! In fact, I like all of the St. Ives body lotions and you can find them on sale in many drugstores. When used in conjunction with the body wash, your skin will feel smooth, and all of those pesky red bumps will go away.

  • Olay Night of Olay Firming Cream
    9.0

    Olay Night of Olay Firming Cream

    Oldie but Goodie . . . .

    I like this cream . . . it is VERY inexpensive and it does tighten the skin when you put it on . . . it does not clog your pores, and is very moisturizing. I like putting it over Olay's Age-Defying Daily Renewal Cream (which is a GREAT exfoliator with its beta-hydroxy complex) to add some firmness to the exfoliation . . .

  • Olay Total Effects 7X Visible Anti Aging Vitamin Complex
    10.0

    Olay Total Effects 7X Visible Anti Aging Vitamin Complex

    My go-to cream for a sans makeup day . . .

    I always use the fragrance-free variety of this cream with the SPF 15 if I plan to venture out and about sans makeup . . . it is an excellent moisturizer for my complexion, which tends to be combination/oily at times, and renders my face virtually poreless . . . I also found it can be used under the eyes without irritation (at least for me), and with a subtle hint of rosy powder blush and a bright fuschia lipstain, I am ready to go in public without frightening the masses! What I particularly love about this product is that it exfoliates and provides adequate protection from the sun.
