  • The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector
    10.0

    The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector

    Awesome for Nighttime Repair

    This is the best handcream for nighttime wear, either alone or even more effective with golves. It's the only hand cream I've found that is truly effective in one use. It's a pretty "earthy" smell and absorbs well. I would not use this during the day though, as it's just a bit too greasy for my taste during the day. I'm already moving on to my second tube!

  • Shu Uemura Silk Oil

    Shu Uemura Silk Oil

    Silky Gorgeous!

    I just used Shu Uemura Silk Oil for the first time this morning...WOW! My hair feels absolutely amazing. So silky soft and very well tamed - hardly any friziness on this humid day here in Portland. I put it on my damp hair before blowdrying. I didn't even finish with a styling product after the blowdry since it looked so sleek. I can't wait to use it again!

  • La Prairie Extrait Of Skin Caviar Firming Complex
    10.0

    La Prairie Extrait Of Skin Caviar Firming Complex

    Great value for skin caviar product!

    I love La Prairie's skin caviar line but must admit most products are too pricey for me. La Prairie's Extrait of Skin Firming Complex is a great way to get the benefits of skin caviar at half the cost of other skin caviar products. The smell is amazing and it's very hydrating. You can put it on under your make-up or pat it on top of your make-up. And a little goes a long way - my bottle usually lasts a year.

  • La Prairie Essential Exfoliator
    10.0

    La Prairie Essential Exfoliator

    Extremely effective and gentle

    Don't be stunned by the price...it's worth it! This is such an effective exfoliator but so gentle and leaves your skin feeling soft. The smell is amazing, like flowers and apricots! A little goes a long way...a bottle lasts me a year and I use it at least 3-4 times a week.

  • La Prairie Purifying Cream Cleanser
    7.0

    La Prairie Purifying Cream Cleanser

    Good for dry skin but not a cleansing workhorse

    I have extremely dry skin and love how my skin feels after using this product - very soft and doesn't feel stripped at all. However, it's not a good cleanser to use if you're looking for a cleanser/make-up remover in one. This cleanser didn't remove all of my make-up...when using it I started using a make-up remover all over my face first then using the cleanser. However, if you're a light make-up user with dry skin, this could be the cleanser for you!

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs And Rosewater

    Great product that I've use for years! If you've got dry skin, this is fantastic. It contains aloe vera in addition to rosewater, so it does have nice soothing, hydrating benefits. I use it when I travel, particularly on long plane flights when my skin gets parched. And it's so nice in the summer to cool your skin on contact. I have also used it to alleviate a sunburn. If you're looking for a line of products many natural ingredients, Mario Badescu is for you. Plus, everytime you place an online order with them you get 3 decent-sized free samples!

  • Stila Sun Gel
    10.0

    Stila Sun Gel

    sheer color without the glimmer effect

    I've used this product for the past several years and it's the best!! I'm quite fair and need to use a bronzer to get a little glow. This bronzer has beautiful, natural sheer coverage without the "shimmer" look of most bronzers. I love to the wear shimmery, glittery look at night but love the completely day-appropriate look of Stila sun gel. A little goes a long way too - I use it everyday and only buy a new tube once every 10-12 months!

  • Tend Skin Liquid
    10.0

    Tend Skin Liquid

    The ultimate multi-tasker!

    I have used this product for years and have found that it has uses beyond simply preventing razor burn and ingrown hairs. Here's a couple of additional uses: - anti-redness: if you have any redness on your skin from a blemish or otherwise, rub a little Tend Skin on it...it banishes most blotchiness. - one of the main ingredients of this product, salicylic acid, is also used to helo treat acne. If you have severe oiliness or acne, a little Tend Skin can help alleviate a breakout. - for anyone with keratosis pilaris: I have this condition on the back of my arms...basically, my skin can't really exfoliate properly creating small, "chicken-skin" like bumps. Tend Skin helps to exfoliate and helps with to improve the condition of the skin on the back of my arms. Be forewarned though - it can be very drying so you will have to exfoliate with a loofa or scrub and hydrate accordingly. - Lastly, believe it or not, it actually works as a deodorant. I discovered this when I used it for razor burn underneath my arms but failed to put deodorant on that day. Especially helpful during the summer months when you need extra deodorant protection!

  • La Prairie Anti-Aging Emulsion SPF 30
    10.0

    La Prairie Anti-Aging Emulsion SPF 30

    Great for dry, aging skin

    I am in my early 30s and my skin is quite dry and I have wrinkles. I use this product daily (along with other La Prairie products) and people comment often on how nice my skin looks. I would definitely recommend this for aging skin or anyone who is super dry. It's spendy but I find that La Prairie is worth every penny! Love that it has SPF 30 too!

  • La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF 15

    I highly recommend this foundation! Other reviews are right...a little goes a long way with this product. The texture is amazing...quite silky and soft. The smell is nice and it's great it's SPF 30 to boot. I LOVE the concealer too. A bottle lasts me a year. Beautiful coverage with a lightweight feel.
