  • Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Mattifying Concentrate Serum with Retinol

    This is a great product. I use it anywhere that needs a little extra TLC. In the summer when it's drier, this is the only thing that soothes my dry skin. As others have said, Paula makes great products with no marketing hype (LIES) and offers them at a good price. I do wish her products were available at stores like Target or another common retailer, but maybe that is why her prices continue to be reasonable.

  • Blinc Kiss Me Mascara

    i love this mascara. it doesn't run (I've gone swimming in it) and it comes off easily with a little soap and warm water. it is not a thickening mascara but it does lengthen and define. I use it a lot and really recommend it.

  • Paula's Choice Epic Lengths Mascara

    I use a lot of PC products because they are as good or better than dept store brands for way less money. This is a good, basic mascara. It goes on evenly, no clumping. It gives basic coverage. If you want Va-Va-Voom lashes, try PC's Lush mascara. There are other products out there that are as good or better in discount and department stores. This is as good as any of those. I would like to see PC develop a "tubing" mascara like Kiss Me's or Clinique's Lash Power. These newer formulations envelope the lashes, are waterproof but just require warm water and a little pressure to remove. It comes off in little lines representing the covering that surrounded each lash. I have sensitive eyes and mascara flaking is the worst. But these new formulas last forever but can be removed gently.

  • Paula's Choice Ultra-Light Weightless Finish SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray

    First, I HATE wearing sunscreen. But living in S. California, it is a daily necessity. I have tried and tossed so man--they are all too thick and sticky or greasy for me, or they smell funny. And forget about wearing them on my face--they feel awful once you get hot and sweaty. But THIS one by Paula's Choice is a godsend. I use it all over, I use it on my kids. Even my husband wears it. It does go on a little "slick" at first, but once it dries (in about 1 minute) it feels like you are wearing nothing at all. My perfect product!! I don't wear foundation for the same reason I hate most sunscreens--they all make me feel like I am wearing a mask and make my skin feel untouchable. I even tried the mineral ones to no avail. But I think if the other reviewer waits a little while after applying this product--to let it dry--the other products will settle better. For me, I just spray some on my hands, rub it in on my face and apply my eye and lip makeup and I am ready for the world!

  • Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40

    I bought this when it first came out several years ago, so perhaps the formula has changed. But I returned it since it felt to heavy and sticky. I lived in Manhattan at the time and needed a light facial sunscreent that didn't melt in the humid NYC summer. This did NOT do the trick. I really like the Neutrogena Healthy Defense tinted moisurizer with sunscreen. It feels like you aren't wearing anything, you get some light coverage and sun protection, too!

  • Lubriderm Daily Moisture with SPF 15 Lotion

    Lubriderm Daily Moisture with SPF 15 Lotion

    Great moisture with sun protection

    I only wish this came in a higher SPF, that is the only bad thing I can say about this product. Large bottle lasts and is well worth the price. Great SPF coverage for everyday use. It is non-greasy, doesn't leave a filmy white coat on you. I use this everyday without fail. Great moisturizer! And my husband uses it without complaint--that alone says a lot!

  • Jane Lipkick Rich Color

    Jane Lipkick Rich Color

    Where is JANE?

    I love the LipKicks but can't find Jane products anywhere. They used to be independently made and marketed here in San Diego (Solana Beach), then the company that made them was acquired by Estee Lauder and the brand dissappeared. I had heard they were trying to bring them back but EL never devoted much marketing to the brand. And the drug stores I have found Jane in don't seem to patrol the cosmetics section, nor do the product reps--half the products were opened, mutilated, incorrectly shelved, etc. All the great colors were gone or opened and smushed. Sad... So, someone please tell me where to find these great products again!!!
