  • SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Lip Repair

    ok so this is what i think about this........... ill start buy saying that i am an addect to lip treatments, i tried LOTS of these kind of products("lip serum's") and i am a VERY high-end skin care junkie(and a BIG BIG FAN of the "la prairie" brand lol)and before i started using this i really liked the la prairie lip serum(aka:"Cellular Lip Renewal Concentrate ") but then i got to know this so i tried it and............I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS!!! its farrrrr better then the la prairie i used! what is it?...... "SKIN CEUTICALS-antioxidant lip repair", is an anti aging serum treatment for the lips and what it does is that it is a penatrating multi vitamin and anti oxidant serum that hydrates to the deepist layers of the lips and it plumps my lips really nice. why is it better then all the others i had tried?............. 1.its ALOT more moisturizing! 2.it plumps up my lips alot more(i really am AMAZED BY THAT EFFECT,just remember that the effect you will get will be of ALOT more of a defind lip contour) 3.i can feel it even after its "rubbed off"(meaning that it sinks into the skin and doesnt "sit" on the lips) 4.my lips have a fresh pinkish rose color to them(due to the exfoliating acids in this cream) im just really in love with this:-) now the way i use this is(mostly)at night after i exfoliate my lips(directions at the end of this review) and i wake up with the most softist and freshist and amazingly plump lips becouse of this baby. and i just feel that my lips are very very hydrated(from the "inside") just becouse they dont tend to get dry anymore(even if i dont have any lip balm on)but really the thing that im mostly in love with is the way my lips look since i started using this(they just look firmer and alot more defind!!!and more plumped up) there's only 1 con regarding this great product and that is ITS BOTTLE. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.................this cream comes in a small pump bottle and after about two weeks of use,suddenly it stops pumping out any cream BUT DONT THROW IT AWAY!!!!!!! its acctually full, but the problem is that this cream is thick so it sticks to the side of the bottlle and then the pump just cant pump any cream out(and becouse its not a "see through" pump then you just dont know that)so what you do is just unscrew the metal package from the pump and then you see the glass bottlle inside and there you should see that there is sooooo much cream left inside(i just take a tooth pick to take some cream out) i just WISH the company would change this to a "vacuum pump"( i would be willing to pay a litlle more if they would change the packaging of this great lip serum) now this is my "lip care" regimen lol............... NIGHT TIME...... first off ,every other night i love to exfoliate my lips(this gives your lips the smoooth texture cause it sweeps the dead skin cells away and that means your lipstick will go on smooooth and beautiful) so what i use for that is the "LUSH- lip scrub" and remember after you do the scrub your lips will be very dry so you MUST put a cream on top of them!!! after the exfoliation i apply the "SKIN CEUTICALS-antioxidant lip repair" serum and then wait 5 min and then....... i apply the AMAZING "darphin age defying lip balm" (now this has got to be the most hydrating-heavy duty lip balm i ever had.) it is an intense lip balm that i use for night time use only. i just use this as a nightime beauty lip treatment,guys this is really amazing stuf!!! so thats it girls,that is what i do: "lush-lip scrub", every other day "skin ceauticals-antioxidant lip repair",as a serum underneath a lip balm "darphin age defying lip balm" as a nightly lip tratment(after the "SC" lip serum) DAYTIME USE:(OPTIONAL)....... "cle de peau-lip treatment"-,as a lip balm in the morning/daytime(i use this as a "daytime" balm becouse its light,not gloosy,not waxy balm and it gives an amazing feel to the lips,now this would be your "carry around lip balm" as you can smooth it on the lips whenever you feel you need to) have fun guys and if you dont find somthing from these products and you dont know where to order them from then just send me a message and write me what country your from and ill be happy to tell you where to order it from online. sarai from israel:-) p.s. if your gonna use only one product then i would totally buy this!!!(just exfoliate the lips every now and then and apply this serum every night and morning) you will looooove this!

  • Chanel Precision Soleil Identite Perfect Colour Face Self-Tanner SPF 8

    i am a sunless tan EXPERT(and belive me.....i have tried allmost EVERYONE OUT THERE!!!) i allways loved this self tanner WAAAAAY more then any other one (and i tried sooooooo many high end and some drugstore ones) this gives A VERY GOOD COLOR!!!! (the reason i gave it four stars insted of five is that ITS NOT PERFECT!!! it DOESNT turn into a perfect "brown tan"(but its very close to a bronzed tan with allmont none of any orange tones). i use it in the "bronze" color only and its beautiful and has a subtle glowy tan (BUT KEEP IN MIND THAT IT TURNS INTO A VERY VERY SUBTLE COLOR,SO DONT EXPECT ANY "DRAMATIC" CHANGE!) i hate that its a bit small for the price (50 ml in each bottlle) but who cares,? i love this i use it twice to 3 times a week at night and it keeps me happy and taned (you can use it every day if you want). i use this for the past 3 years and i reccomend it to anyone. i know this product was disscontinued in 2009,but they started making it again about 8 months ago so its still here yayyyy. i know that chanel only sells this in europe and canada for now but i can get this online so im sooooo happy this gives you a subtle honey tan (nooooo orange at all!!!) and the smell,oooooooh my god the smell is like vanilla and honey i really LIKE THAT! the only cons are that..... 1.the color dosent last more then about 2 days 2.the color somtimes "sits" on my nose and it looks like i have blackheads :-( 3.its a very subtle color TIP: you can get it in chanel boutique's in europe or canada or order it from online from the place i order it (if you want to know where you can order it just send me a message) and i promise you guys that its the best self tanner i had tried(to this date) bye :-) sarai from israel:-) UPDATE,NOV 2011: ok i still think this is a GREAT tanner color and scent wise(but not perfect) and i found a self tanner that soooo many raved about and i can say that its PERFECT! i started using the "EXTENDED VACATION MOROCCAN MINERAL SHIMMERING SANDS FACIAL TANNER" and it is.........AMAZING!!!!! A-M-A-Z-N-G BROWN TAN! and color stays about 5 days and no "blackhead look" on the nose!!! look it up on amazon for its amazing reviews:) i soooo wanted to try it but NO ONE shipped it int'l(and i live in israel) but finally i found an online store that shippes it internationally with soooo CHEAP DELIVERY!(i think its like 8$ for shipping) so if you live outside the usa or canada and cant find a store that shippes it(its imposible to fine one! lol) then send me a message and ill help :) sarai.

  • La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream

    I LOOOOOOOVE THIS!!! OH MY GOD WHAT AN AMAZING CREAM!!! This cream is very expensive, but worth every penny. I am a total high-end skincare brands junkie, and I used all the inexpensive skin care lines to the top of the line skincare, and I have to say this cream has far been the best cream ever used. I have combo, sensitve, acne prone skin, but this cream makes my skin look so radiant and nice even without make up. A little goes a long way ( I would say one jar will last over a year). LOVE LOVE this cream! This cream is phenomenal. There is no other word for it. Not even going to try and describe what it does; it does everything it promisses, and more. One word of advise — buy it only if you can easily afford it. If you are barely making the ends meet and have to save the cash for two years, you'll be so stressed out from having spent such an outrageous amount on a jar of cream, that your skin will get terrible just from the mental pressure. But if you can afford it (some gals make $600 in a few hours), GO FOR IT! You won't regret it!!! sarai from israel:-) sorry for my spelling errors

  • La Prairie Cellular Radiance Concentrate Pure Gold

    listin i admit im a fan of lp products,BUT BELIVE ME that if they come out with a product i hate,ill be the first one to say that its bad (you can just look at my reviews to see that not all lp products are loved by me) now this serum came out in 2007 and its one of "la-prairie's" BEST SELLING product's. now because of its very high price there isnt alot of reviews on it(and i also think that because of the price ppl here feel that they need to "bash" the product,its like you guys are expecting magic or something from this serum) Perhaps the thing La Prairie is most famous for is that it has really expensive products. However, the brand is also known for its anti-aging products, and its commitment to premium, exotic ingredients, and past products have included precious metals, like platinum and diamonds. So while the price is high, there is a lot to back up the prices One of La Prairie's ranges, the Radiance Collection, has a focus on using gold as an ingredient in the skincare range. The gold is primarily meant to brighten and add radiance to the skin now the "star product"of this range is the Cellular Radiance Concentrate, a serum it is a serum that is literally infused with gold, which is pretty cool to me lol. Imainge actually applying gold to your skin! The product comes in a beautiful-looking gold bottle with a dropper, and even inside the dropper, you can see the serum glistening with gold particles Once rubbed in, you can really see the GLOW on your skin. The gold bits function similarly to gold glitter on the skin, and are very light-reflective,now all (or most) of the reviews i saw online are written buy ppl that got a sample. now most ppl are mostlly put off buy the VERY high price of this serum(600$ for 1 oz) and automaticlly they thought that when paying that much it must be MAGIC!!! hehehe no cream or serum can compete with a face lift(or botox). now for me this serum is AMAZING!!! when i put this this on it just makes my skin soooooooooo perfect,and i use it in the morning with the radiance cream now i have to say that for me, wrinkles are not an issue(im 26) so i cant really tell you guys how it acts on that part. i just love the way my skin looks like a "red carpet" skin lol soooo GLAMOURIS and RADIANT!!! i just cant stop looking at my golden radiant face! :-) listin, this is very expencive but if you want the most luxurious serum to make your skin look(and feel)AMAZING then you found it! (just please use it with the radiance cream(or radiance emulosion) its a must) i promise, you will have an AMAAAAAAAAZING GLOW like none other!!! and your skin will become alot brighter and your cheek's will have this beautiful glow just please dont think this will take a 60 year old skin and turn it into a 20 year old's (cause IT WONT!!!) but for fine lines and and wrinkles and healthy BEAUTIFUL skin that has the radiance of the sun then you must use this super serum with the radiance cream THIS IS JUST AMAZING i just put one tiny tiny drop of the serum on my finger and then smooth it on my forehead and then two other tiny drops(each for everyside of my face) let it dry a min and then put on the amazing "cellular radiance cream". have fun :-) sarai from israel p.s. if there is any questions just feel free to send me a message,and sorry for my spelling errors

  • La Prairie Advanced Marine Biology Day Cream SPF 20

    DONT EVER BUY THIS!!!!!!! yuk!!! what an ugly bad face cream no words except gross i am the MOST BIG FAN OF LA PRAIRIE but this is just a BIG FAT no no!! Gross! Sticky and stinky. If you want your face to look like it was coated in oil, go ahead and buy this. It smells awful. The website described this as a cream-gel. This is not true. This is a thick greasy cream. Nothing special about it. I wouldn't know of any benefits this gives because I returned it after two days. The night solution is a different story, but this day cream is no good. I can honestly say I don't think this would agree with anyone. Even someone with dry skin!! its HORRIBLE! I also experienced my skin oiler than usual after using this product. I would never buy it again!!! I had to consistently use oil blotting sheets throughout the day. Yes, I have oily skin but, I don't want a moisturizer that will make me feel and look oilier!!! DO NOT BUY THIS! sarai from israel :-) p.s. sorry for my spelling errors

  • ReVive Cleanser Gentil

    ReVive Cleanser Gentil

    my HG face cleanser

    AMAZING!!! first let me say that i am a huge "high end skincare junkie" lol and a VERY BIG FAN OF "LA PRAIRIE" brand. i just tried sooooo many brands(la mer,revive,natura bisse,chanel,dior,ysl,sisley and more!) and no brand gave me such an amazing results like la prairie BUT as me being an addict for brands i allways like to try new brands that ppl rave about,now i heard the rave of revive and HAD TO TRY!!! so i ordered revive online (cause i live in israel and you cant get revive here in my country) of products worth 1500 usd so i could really get the revive "GLOW" lol i tried there products for allmost two months and.................. I HAVE NEVER USED SUCH BAD AND DISSGUSTING PRODUCTS THAT NOT ONLY DIDNT DO ANYYYYYTHING TO MY SKIN BUT ALSO MADE MY SKIN SO BAD FROM BREAKOUTS!!! (and from then on i stay loyal to my beloved la prairie) BUT i have to say that from the two cleansers i ordered of revive (cleanser luxe and this cleanser gentile) this cleanser is really AMAZING!!!! its wayyyyyyy beter then any cleanser i had EVER tried!!! my skin feels sooo clean and looks really good and i dont have that tight feeling that i did when i used other cleansers. i think this is THE BEST CLEANSER IN THE WORLD!!! i have sensitive combo skin and it just balanced everything so this will be amazing for allmost anyone (unless you have VERY VERY VERY dry skin) It's a clear gel that appears pale pink in the bottle. But it's actually entirely clear with a slightly runny texture. Not a thick or jelly type of gel, more fluid and silky. It took me a few tries to realize that I actually do only need a pea sized amount to wash my entire face and neck thoroughly. Seriously, only a pea size or even smaller. I know, I know... so many products claim that's all that's needed but in this case it's very true. That minuscule amount creates a very thick, plush white lather that removes all traces or makeup (including eyeliner, mascara, and waterproof eyeshadow). So it does foam up quite a bit. It doesn't strip my skin or leave it feeling tight either. No breakouts or irritation. The scent took some getting used to, but now I find it very really soothing. i really love it! sarai from israel:-) p.s. sorry for my spelling errors

  • La Prairie Anti-aging Day Cream SPF 30

    i bought along with alot of other stuff from the "anti aging line" the women that help me from the lp counter said that be cause i have more of an oily skin type that she would reccomend the anti aging emulosion day cream but i tried it there and didnt like it be cause it was too light (and i like a cream that i can feel on my face and i like that dewy kindda look) so i tried this and it was really an amazing cream belive me and i promise you this is the truth.......... even that this is a cream and i have more of an oily skin type, this was still sooo good to my skin. and it just MELTS in your skin leaving a BEAUTIFUL LUMINOUS GLOW!!! i really like this cream on how nice it makes my skin look since im using this line my skin looks better then it ever was UPDATE:NOV 2011 i dont use this cream anymore since i came across the radince line from lp AND FELL IN LOVE. i bought the radiance cream and the radiance serum and thats what im using now because it gives me a glow to DIE FOR!(but EACH cost about 600$!!!) but this anti aging cream still is A VERY VERY good product and i would still with no doubt recommend this WONDERFUL AND FANTASTIC day cream :-) and its great for anti aging sarai from israel :-) p.s. sorry for my spelling errors

  • La Prairie La Prairie Age Management Balancer

    NOTE: the picture thats on this page is not the product we are reviewing. i am a very "heavy" high end cosmetics consumer (but i mostly use la prairie,la mer,sisly,natura bisse,and some chanel products) and i never really liked to use toner on my face but this one is such a beautiful product it just makes my skin so soft and GLOWING its amazing. i would definitely recccomend this the only con is the package of this toner,its a heavy glass jar and a WIDE hole that you cant control on how much gets out and its just not so hygienic (but most of the la prairie packages are like that) sarai from israel :-) p.s. sorry for my spelling errors
