    L'Oreal Paris True Match Concealer

    Limited Spectrum of Shades

    I tried to use many different shades from this brand because I heard good things about it, but there's no room for medium-dark indian skin tones. I could never get this concealer to blend in, nor could i even get it to be covered or mix with my foundation. I feel like it glows or its just too light. The range of shades just isn't enough (broaden the spectrum), this doesn't blend and the formula isn't really natural. If you want a great drugstore concealer, use Maybelline TrueFit Concealer. So much better.

  • MAC Lipglass

    MAC Lipglass

    Looks Gorgeous, But Messy

    This was my favorite lip gloss for YEARS. I swore by it and put up with the messiness both on my lips (can't kiss, can't drink, can hardly talk without messing up, EVERYTHING sticks to this) and off (picks up every piece of dust in your bag)....all because no other gloss out there was "glassy" enough. But since then, there have been better glosses that provide an almost similar shine and I'd opt for those even they aren't as glassy because im tired of rubbing a product that feels like straight honey on my lips (even if it's looks gorgeous). Besides...matte is kind of in.

  • Murad Energizing Pomegranate Moisturizer SPF 15

    Murad Energizing Pomegranate Moisturizer SPF 15

    An Old Pal, Good for Younger Skin

    I used to use this about 10 years ago and for a while it was amazing. I recommend for a first moisturizer...it's light, not for any problematic skin issues/just general, yet it makes your skin feel really good and smells great. I outgrew this cream many years ago and opt for a heavier cream now, but it's great and not loaded with any chemicals.

  • Kiehl's Rosa Arctica
    3.0

    Kiehl's Rosa Arctica

    Good, But Not Worth The Price

    This is an ok cream. I received a samples, used it for a week....and yes, it moisturized my skin but there was nothing about this cream that really convinced me to buy it. This fell into my travel bag for whenever I need a little pick me up on the plane. It's a bit too heavy for me and doesn't seem to penetrate too well...kind of have to rub it in (seeing the last review says to rub in your hands to warm up, which could be true since it's a little waxy). Also, I dont love the smell. Conclusion: too much work, too much money and not so impressive. Usually a fan of Kiehl's but this time they didn't really win my heart.

  • Ahava Pure Mud Dead Sea Mineral Mud

    Ahava Pure Mud Dead Sea Mineral Mud

    Swear by this! #1 Replenishing

    What a great mud for the body. It definitely replenishes moisture on all areas of the body and smoothes the skin. You won't see a MAJOR difference in your skin...like what you get after a scrub, but you WILL see that your skin holds moisture so much better after regular use. It's an overall skin improver, but you have to make time for it. The 1 star off? It's time consuming to use, can stain your towels and it's VERY messy to use...You have to wait for it to dry and sometimes that's not that much fun when you are doing it by yourself. BUT, this does give that spa feeling and makes you imagine that you went to the shores of the dead sea to retrieve this gift yourself. It feels so natural and decadent...My biggest tip, if you have time: exfoliate before using and use a great body butter afterwards for a nice spa day. Excellent!!

  • Ahava Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Cream
    9.0

    Ahava Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Cream

    Love! Definitely Replenishes, Feels Good, Smells Good

    What a great, nourishing hand cream. I can never have enough of this cream in my bags, in the office, when traveling...just a fresh smelling and moisturizing cream. Your hands will never get chapped when you use this cream. This is a thick cream...but it doesn't stay greasy at all. This cream absorbs quickly and makes your hands feel fresh, clean and soft. Almost like after a manicure in which you rub your hands in an oil...but without any greasy residue feeling. You can even put it on and drive without leaving any mark on the steering wheel. Magical cream...don't by 1, buy 5!! A little pricey, but worth it..feels that good.

  • Ahava Skin Replenisher For Normal to Dry Skin
    3.0

    Ahava Skin Replenisher For Normal to Dry Skin

    Least Favorite AHAVA product

    There's nothing great about this cream. It's good for when you run out of your normal every day cream, but not even worth carrying in your handbag as the cream that you are trying to use up. I usually LOVE AHAVA products so much but this one is a real disappointment. Not the worst cream that I've ever used, but definitely doesn't come to mind when someone asks about a good cream. I saw no difference in my skin and didn't feel like it penetrated my skin that well either. I've tried this one in all season and even exfoliated before use to see if it could penetrate better...no chance. This is one of those creams that stays in your cabinet because there's no justification in throwing it out but you really dont want to use it again. Nothing special here. Try the other creams, but not this one (not even a special smell or feel). Also, it's not worth the price...drugstore brands are a lot better than this cream and this really feels like the below average drugstore cream.

  • Smooth Away Hair Removal

    Smooth Away Hair Removal

    Terrible...Rubs Hair Off Along with Skin

    I do not have sensitive skin, nor do I have coarse hair. I started out trying to buff the hair away and not much happened...I was very cautious and careful, and rubbed a little more. The hair started to fade away...and I thought it was magic! I imagined my days of threading, waxing, tweezing and waiting until I had time to go to the salon over!!! And then i felt the burn...and the irritation on my skin started...reddening, burning...ouch! and nothing could fix it. The area was hurting until the next morning...no milk or cold water would help. The burn just continued...I guess until my skin grew back properly. This was like rug burn on your face which makes sense because it's like rubbing a lighter form of sand paper on my face, so what did I expect? Never again!! Do not even try this product.

  • The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream

    There isn't much to say about this day cream, other than it's just a cream. There are so many out there that make your face feel wonderful and really hydrated. This isn't one of them. I used most of the container because I liked the smell...but after a while I felt like it was hardly penetrating or moisturizing really well. I guess maybe this is for people with sensitive skin, but if you dont have super sensitive skin then I say pass. If you just happen to like the body shop then they have better creams than this. (I'm a big fan of body shop). I saw pass on this one.

  • Smith's Rosebud Salve

    Smith's Rosebud Salve

    Love, but Not My Favorite

    I love this lip salve...it's amazing in the winter, gives a nice shine ...but it's not my favorite because it gets slippery and can get kind of cakey when mixed with certain lipsticks. Not a good look. I do also like it for moisturizing really dry elbows or putting on burns, it really does help. I definitely think everyone should have a tin or two somewhere ...just for all purpose uses.
