    Neutrogena MoistureShine LipSheers

    Great for sheer color

    I love the way this product goes on - sheerly, smoothly, and feels very creamy. I am very fair-skinned and usually don't like a heavy dose of color, so I especially like the fact that I can choose a very sheer, natural looking shade (cool nectar) or something with a bit more color (sunny berry) without looking like I have lipstick on. The price is right for trying all the colors!

  • Babor High Skin Refiner Lifting Eye Cream
    5.0

    Babor High Skin Refiner Lifting Eye Cream

    Nice but not too effective

    I bought this product based on the manufacturer's claims and have yet to be "wowed" by it. Sure, it feels good going on and sinks right in, leaving my skin feeling nice and moisturized. But, I haven't seen any measurable improvement in wrinkle reduction and/or lifting or firming effects. Not worth the price for me for just moisturizing. Won't be reordering.

  • Skyn Iceland Pure Cloud Cream
    5.0

    Skyn Iceland Pure Cloud Cream

    Smells great, feels great, but . . .

    I tried this cream as a sample, and absolutely loved: 1) the clean, fresh citrusy scent, 2) the soft, light consistency, and 3) the way it immediately absorbed into my skin. It felt absolutely wonderful going on. However, I didn't notice any difference in the condition of my skin, and it definitely wasn't moisturizing enough for me. If the price wasn't so high, I would consider it as a moisturizer in hot, humid weather when I don't need a heavier one.

  • Vincent Longo Pressed Powder

    Vincent Longo Pressed Powder

    Soft and silky finish

    I use VL's Water Canvas foundation (very sheer and natural finish), and wanted a powder for touchups. This is the softest, finest, silkiest powder I've ever used. However, when applied with the puff provided, I found the coverage a bit heavier than I liked. So, I use a brush and get a nice, light finish with a bit of color. Exactly what I wanted.

  • Bliss Spiff Upper Lip

    Bliss Spiff Upper Lip

    Still waiting to see results

    I tried this hoping it would help smooth out the first nasty little wrinkles, not to mention more than just peach fuzz that I have above my upper lip. I like and use other Bliss products, but this one leaves me somewhat disappointed. It feels nice and moisturizing going on, but I haven't yet seen any change or improvement. I'll continue to use it in hopes that it will help in time.

  • Bliss Wrinkle Twinkle

    Bliss Wrinkle Twinkle

    Didn't work for me

    Unfortunately, I didn't see any improvements/changes from this. It felt nice going on and the applicator is neat and easy to use, but no real results. IMHO, not one of Bliss' better products.

  • L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
    10.0

    L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

    By far, the best hand cream

    After reading all of the reviews on this hand cream, I had to try it. Well, everyone was right -- it's absolutely amazing! I have extremely dry hands (I wash them A LOT, working in a hospital) and this cream totally rocks! It is nice and thick and heavy, but absorbs miraculously fast and doesn't leave a greasy residue. Plus, a little goes a long way. My hands feel totally pampered and comfortably moisturized. Just wish the packaging was plastic rather than bendy metal.

  • Barielle Deluxe Hand & Body Lotion

    Barielle Deluxe Hand & Body Lotion

    For soft and silky skin

    This is a wonderful body lotion! It works for both my hands and body, leaving them soft, silky, and moisturized. And the smell! Very light and citrusy, not overpowering. Highly recommended!

  • Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash

    This is a great every day exfoliator. It's gentle yet effective. I use this primarily, as well as Philosophy Made Simple and the Microdelivery Peel, depending on how my skin feels each day. Highly recommended if you have sensitive skin.

  • Peter Thomas Roth Oil-Free Moisturizer
    9.0

    Peter Thomas Roth Oil-Free Moisturizer

    A great hot weather alternative for me

    The only reason I didn't give this a 10 is because it doesn't have sunscreen in it. I normally wouldn't have purchased this on my own as my skin tends to be a bit dry and received this as a sample. In the hot weather, my face can occasionally get uncomfortably sticky and sweaty. This doesn't provide quite enough moisture for me on a day-to-day basis, but I've found a couple of good uses for it. When it's hot and/or humid and I don't plan on going outside (no sunscreen), I use this lotion and find it keeps my skin sufficiently moisturized and much more comfortable (not as sticky or sweaty). It absorbs quickly and feels nice and light. If I plan to be outside, I use my regular moisturizer with sunscreen so I don't have to put 2 layers on (too thick, too hot). Also, when my skin decides to occasionaly act up and break out, I find this seems to help clear things up more quickly than when I wear my regular moisturizer. All in all, this product has been a nice surprise find for me and I highly recommend it.
