  • Sonya Dakar Drying Potion

    I've been using this Drying Potion for over a month now. It has helped to dry up those pesky, big red pimples. FYI, it does not work overnight--sometimes it does, but most of the time it takes a few days for the pimple to go away. But I like that it doesn't take forever for the pimple to heal. I did not give it a full ten stars because it flakes off once it dries, not cool when you're sleeping with it. Yes, the potion also thickens in bottles. How I fix that is to shake the bottle vigorously before each use.

  • DDF Sulfur Therapeutic Mask

    I have been using the DDF Sulfur Mask for over a year now and figure that I can give a real honest opinion about it. It hasn't really done anything for my skin. I purchased the product after reading such rave reviews about it. I initially used it as a facial mask twice a week for several months, but there were no significant improvement with my skin. I did try it as a spot treatment on pimples and that worked all right (hence, my two star rating), but not always. And not to mention, it's a little pricey. With all that said, I will not be purchasing/using this product again.

    JolieMD Metamorphosis

    It's a 'Maybe'

    I have used JolieMD for almost a year, consistently I would say about 6 - 7 months. Please note that I used this in conjunction with antibiotic pills during those months. It did help to clear up my adult acne and suppressed breakouts to the point where I can none (!!). It took a while, but it certainly smoothed out my skin and evened out my skin tone. I stopped taking the antibiotics 4 months ago (I was tired of relying on pills to help clear up my skin) and started up using JolieMD again for about 3 weeks now. Stopping the antibiotics has caused me to get breakouts again. It really hasn't made a difference, but my skin could be re-adjusting to the product. JolieMD comes in two bottles: Step 1. Softening Serum and Step 2. Enlightening Lotion. The Softening Serum may take some getting used to in the beginning as it can sting a little. I really like the Enlightening Lotion because it eased the stinging if any and it smelled really nice (citrus-y). The packaging is crazy beautiful. The box is mirrored-like and looks super fab. The bottles themselves are pieces on their own. I normally hide my beauty products in the cabinets, but these I leave out on display 'cause they're just too pretty to hide. A lot of thought was definitely put into the packaging and presentation. With that being said, the price tag is a bit steep--I mean, $96. Yikes. But once you're familiar with how much to apply on your skin, the bottles can last you for about 3 months (tip: I use 2 pumps of the Softening Serum and 1 pump of the Enlightening Lotion). I recall one review on JolieMD saying that one downside was that you couldn't tell how much product was left. Well I found a solution to that and it was by accident. I had dropped one of the bottles and the top part came off, exposing the pump with in. There you can see how much product you have left. So use your nail or a knife to pop the top off and pull out the pump. And don't worry, the pump and bottle can easily snap back into place. In conclusion, I'm going to finish the set I have and see what the results are. I will hopefully post an update for all you on here!

  • Benefit Dr. Feelgood
    9.0

    Benefit Dr. Feelgood

    This works for me!

    Dr. Feelgood is great as a balm under makeup or just to even out skintone when you don't feel like putting anything on (just moisturizer/sunblock), au natural. This product has been part of my "beauty arsenal" for over 8 years now. It works well for me and it doesn't irritate my fairly sensitive skin (I breakout easily). It has a consistency that of a balm, but smoothes right on to skin. It does mattify your skin, especially if you have oily skin like me. I do use it to touch up my makeup mid-day. Although I do not recommend that you smooth it over, instead blot it over and you're good to go. There's hardly any smell and it's a nice scent if there is any. I am not without my Dr. Feelgood in my beauty bag. If there is one thing I need, it's this! I'm usually picky when it comes to what I put on my skin (aren't we all?!), so it is very rare that I find a good product that I use for many years and can truly vouch for.

  • Chanel Exceptionnel De Chanel Intense Volume and Curl Mascara

    i've been blessed with long & full lashes, but could never find a good mascara that would stay put; the ones i've tried always smudged and clumped. but not the chanel exceptionnel mascara!! it truly made my eyes POP! i would have given the mascara a 10, but there's a technique to using it, you have the roll it through you lashes like you're curling it. it does take a few times to get the hang of it, but once you do, you're going to love it!!!

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    i never really cared for mineral make-up until i was given a 10-day sample. i tried it out and must say i was very impressed. the bareMinerals Foundation is great for everyday. i don't like to put on my an entire "face" when i head to work, so this is perfect. it gives natural looking coverage. you just want to make sure that you have the right moisturizer/primer for your skin or else the foundation isn't going to look right.

  • Caudalie Crushed Cabernet Scrub

    i bought the caudalie trio scrub set and the crushed cabernet had to be my fav. it truly helps tighten the skin, especially around the tummy and thigh areas. an added bonus is the cute little jars they come in! clean it out really good and you can re-use them to house just about anything: spices, moisturizer, buttons, etc.
