  • Clarins Extra-Firming Foundation

    This foundation was suggested to me by a Clarins rep as I had been using True Illusion? I think its called, also a Clarins product. In the past I have found firming products make me uncomfortble and seem wierd. I agreed to try it for 4-5 days and I was mpressed, its not your typical full coverage that you see where you ook i the mirror and are like "who is that". I found it a little thick bit was ok once I learnd to work with it an apply with a brush. I like it bit still return to the lighter formula I used from time to time,this is a geat product for the winter months as it foes protect the skin as well. Clarins make good products and I have rarely tried one I didnt like.

  • Kinerase Extreme Lift Face

    Kinerase Extreme Lift Face

    Would love to try$$$

    I will not purchase something so $$ unless I can try it for several days first. I tell cosmetic counters that they should sell small size kits etc so people can try for two weeks before spending. I understand the companies dont always send enough samples but if they expect to sell at high prices they need to offer something so consumer knows they are getting a product or produts that meet their expectations, hence the small size idea, its not a giveaway. I have bought night cream costing 150+ and been dissatisfied, when I returned to counter they asked if I had an allergic reaction etc and if I had a dr note, ridiculous I expected a certain level of performance and product did not meet my expectations, period. I shop regularly and sometimes a return is appropriate. With this product I would insist on trying it first!! Another reason I enjoy the beauty subscription boxes so much.

  • Caudalie Pulpe Vitaminee Energizing Fluid

    I received a sample f the serum and moisturizer as part of a beauy subscription box(theyare great for new things and sometimes you get a full size) and it was wonderful although I didnt have quite enough to be certain I pla to purchase the duo ithpoints to help wih the cost. Glymm is the service, its so great I think its available in US I know thre are services there. I belong to a couple and just ove them!! As I said this is a beautiful product, good for in your 40s and beyond I think, I did notice a difference even in the 4 days I used it.

  • Olay Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex
    6.0

    Olay Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex

    Too Expensive for the product

    I received this product as part of a subscription service for beauty and I got a full size which is $60 Can, I checked. I am somewhat of a skincare obsessive and espthe earea given I am in my early 40s. I dont really have dark circles so that is one of the main claims of this product. It is easy to aply, nonirritating and I cant see that t really makes a difference although I have only been using it for a week and have several other eye products I prefer that are in the same price range. I see people find it good for dark circles so I may give it to my husband as he complains of them and is always using my stuff anyway! Overall Ithink its OK just surprised at the Olay price range! Also it says cnbe usd am and pm and the texture is not suitable for daytime use with eye makeup. Depends on your eye concerns I guess

  • LaRocca Vitamin Repair Mist
    10.0

    LaRocca Vitamin Repair Mist

    Multi Use On the Go Product

    I love the refreshing feeling of this mist. It is so easy to carry with you and just spritz o feel freshened up and also update sun protection. The smell and texture are great, sometimes I just want to spray it for a mid day boost especially if Im feeling stressed or hot and tied chasing my kids around outside on a weekend. It doesnt affect makeup at all, a reat feature as I have tried similar things and they usually affect makeup or add a "shinyness" you dont want that doesnt go away.

  • LaRocca C-Gold Reparative Primer
    10.0

    LaRocca C-Gold Reparative Primer

    A jewel in a bottle"

    It is marketed as being 85% nature, 15% science and uses 24 kt gold in some of its products. The serum is amazing, I have used numerous serums from inexpensive to high end as in to my hubbie"no that purchase is for some skin care products basically insinuating I was getting 3-4 items for the cost of one product I bought. This surpasses them all, it is designed for mature skin of any type and I think for that reason it is effective and would likely be for most people over 40, especially. It only takes a small amount and skin is really transformed in only 2-3 days a real difference in smoothness, lines evenness of skin tone and colour. I have found my o to, as well as several others from this company. I will be trying more for sure. For the 1st time in a log time I am excited to watch and feel my skin change for the better not just feel old looking. Im glowing!!!!

    I have been using this for many years and currently use about 1x per month esp if I feel oily or breakouts. It deep cleans without drying the skin. After using it my skin is radian and any problems come to the surface and clear up

  • Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo

    After having used numerous Aveda products for years I was disappointed with this shampoo as it seemed to strip my hair and it wasnt shiny and smooth. Conditioner of this is great though
