    H2O+ Hand & Nail Cream

    Love this stuff!

    I've been in love with this hand cream ever since I tried it at the store like 8 years ago. I convinced my roommates at the time to chip in and get a bottle for the whole apartment. It smells great, it feels light on the hand, like it got absorbed after a minute of massaging. It feels moisturizing enough even for the winter days. I've gone through numerous 8oz bottles of this stuff. The only thing I took a star off for is the fact that it leaves a bit of residual film on the hand, and I can tell when I wash my hands 4, 5 hours after putting this on. Oh, and the price is not as sweet a some of the other products out there that may do the exact same thing.

    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    Hard to find the right color but...

    I bought the starter kit in Medium after testing it in the store a while back. But after I got home, it seems that neither one of the colors in the kit really fit my skin. Medium was definitely too dark, and while medium beige was the right tone it was also on the dark side (at least compared to my neck). So I use it mainly in the summer time, and the good thing is it is mineral so no heavy-oily feeling like liquid foundation. And it's easy to apply, can even out my skin with a light layer. This is the product I reach for in the morning when I'm in a hurry. Only wish I can find the correct color though...Light was apparently too yellow for me too.

  • Clinique City Block Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector SPF 25

    This is a physical sunblock, so probably more effective during hot days. But it's not as oil-free as the name indicates. The consistency is actually sticky when you first put it on. My trick for it is to add a layer of loose powder to contain the stickiness. So far I haven't gotten tanned, so the spf is working. Oh, and this product requires proper cleansing, which means it helps to use a makeup remover. Bit of a hassle, but overall not a bad product.

  • Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare All-In-One Facial Cleanser with Toner

    This is a nice cleanser, because it does it all. Of course, I've only tried its makeup-removal strength on mild makeup, not the strong waterproof stuff yet. But so far it seems to do what it says. As for the toner part, I would feel better if I add another splash of hydrosol or spring water afterwards. This is good for travelling though, if you just want to bring one bottle, and at the end of a tiring day one bottle does it all. However, there is one thing I find confusing about this product. I never know whether I should use it with dry hands on dry face, or wet hands on dry face, or wet hands on wet face, or dry hands on wet face. And, the price is a little steep for a cleanser...

  • Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula

    This stuff works great. Used on dry hair, it can make the hair a little oily. On wet hair, it makes super glossy and smooth hair. And the smell, very very pleasant. My hair isn't too frizzy by any means, but it is a bit poofy after washing. This serum doesn't help the poofiness right after the washing, but afterwards it works. The thermal protection one is better though, for you get protection from heat styling.

  • Biotherm Aquasource SuperSerum

    Biotherm Aquasource SuperSerum

    Good for moisturizing on any skin

    Normally I have oily skin, dehydrated but oily. I've always liked Biotherm products, but as my age increases I feel that Biotherm doesn't offer a lot of anti-aging/antioxidant products. But moisturizing is still great. So that's what this product does. The superserum is great as a oil-free moisturizing serum before your day/night cream without adding weight or heaviness to your skin. The bottle says you can wear this alone, but I'd say only for really young and oily skins. I used this through summer, fall, and part of early winter, and I found it efficient in moisturizing my skin. I'd buy it again if there are discounts or gift-with-purchase.

  • Avene Thermal Spring Water

    Avene Thermal Spring Water

    Calms irritated skin almost instantly

    My skin was going through the retin-A treatment, with drying and peeling and purging and scabs from picking. For a week or so, I was afraid to use anything that would agitate my skin more. So I went to the small can of avene thermal spring water I bought long ago. Everyday after washing with a gentle cleanser, I'd spray this in place of a toner. It worked wonders. It calmed my skin while moisturizing it. The only bad thing is that it gets used up fairly fast. I'd definitely buy it again, perhaps in the big can.
