    Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Lifting Concentrate

    Absolutely Works on Wrinkles!!!

    I used this at nite for four weeks and the wrinkles & lines disappeared almost completely. I did not continue to use it because somehow I thought it was discontinued when I could not find it at Sephora. But turns out that Sephora stopped carrying this 5 years ago. So when I saw it recently I purchased it again.

  • Shiseido Pureness Moisturizing Gel-Cream

    Shiseido Pureness Moisturizing Gel-Cream

    Miracle Cream - It Works!!

    My complexion had gotten very dry & blotchy with acne from trying several new products including two creams that gave me horrible breakouts after one use. Most hydrating creams are not acne friendly & dryness returns when the creams are washed off. After one application of this gel-cream my skin felt hydrated & super smooth & redness/acne diminished 90%!!!! Even after washing this off my skin still felt smooth & hydrated with no flakiness. You need the smallest amount of this as it spreads easily & absorbs quickly.

    Tarte emphasEYES

    Not worth trying

    Difficult to apply, color does not deposit easily. Fades after a few hours. I used it on inner rims of eyes top & bottom. Only plus is it does not need sharpening.

  • Bare Escentuals Faux Tan Body Moisturizer

    Unlike the Faux Tan Self-Tanner this is not tinted but a regular white lotion. I still got an even tan without the tint. I used this 2 days after using the Faux Tan Self-Tanner & got a nice light color a few hours later. This did not absorb as quickly as the Faux Tan Self-Tanner - took around 10 minutes for the lotion to feel completely absorbed. I really prefer the Faux Tan Self-Tanner as it dries instantly, is tinted & feels "drier" & more comfortable.

  • Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Omega 3-6-9 Replenishing Oil

    This oil is very thin & watery. You don't have to squeeze the dropper to dispense it, it just drips right off. And slides off your fingers as well. The thin consistency makes it easy to apply & only a small amount is needed. My skin absorbs the oil right away & feels hydrated. I only used it at night as indicated but it keeps my face hydrated during the day as well. My face isn't as dry as it used to be before using this. If you choose to use this during the day, do not use it around the eye area as it will smudge your eye makeup. After just 2 applications my skin is more even toned & just looks so much better overall. This really balances my complexion!

  • Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colour

    I have this in Platinum, a lite nude/beige shimmer. I apply the smallest amount on lids & it intensifies the powder eye shadows I layer over it & keeps eye shadow in place all day!

  • Korres Natural Products Olive and Rye Night Cream

    After trying & loving Korres Honey Mask I wanted to try other Korres products. I decided upon this nite moisturizer. I was really excited about this cream based on its description on Sephora online that it's an intense anti-aging cream that will increase elasticity, firm & fight wrinkles; the numerous positive reviews and overall rating of 4 & 1/2 out of 5; the Research Results; and reasonable price. I used this over Philosophy Omega 3,6,9 Replenishing Oil. It felt like applying pure oil or butter on my face but after a few minutes my dry skin drank it up & my skin felt hydrated and comfortable. A few hours later I had some breakouts so I washed my face & within a few minutes I had dry, itchy, flaky and crepey skin! I don't have any issues with the Philosopy Omega Oil so either it's this moisturizer or layering two oily products was too much for me. I'm not sure if I should give this another try on its own. Wish I had gotten a sample before purchasing online.

  • DDF Retinol Energizing Moisturizer

    DDF Retinol Energizing Moisturizer

    Hydrates Very Well & Evens Skin Tone

    I have only used this a few times at night so I can't comment its line minimizing or firming abilities but this is a great moisturizer for dry & blotchy skin. It immediately hydrates with no sticky or greasy feel. Skin feels very comfortable, soft & smooth. All dryness & flakiness is gone upon application. The color of this lotion is a bright yellow but does not appear yellow on the skin. I also wake up with more even toned skin. Blotchy redness greatly diminished.

  • Hourglass Superficial Volumizing + Lengthening Mascara

    No clumping, defining & nice dark lashes but very natural looking or a notch above natural. I like more dramatic looking lashes. This just didn't do it for me.

  • Laura Mercier Foundation Primer

    Laura Mercier Foundation Primer

    Got Horrible Reaction!!!!

    I was looking for a primer & decided on this so I went to test it out at Sephora. I'm used to creamy thicker primers unlike this which is very thin & light like a light whipped lotion or serum. I feel that lighter products should be applied on the face first so I wasn't sure if this will work over a lotion sunblock. I tested this on my hand in several areas & had some redness there as I wiped them off to test out other products. Well, I had a blob of this primer on the center of the back of my left hand that I was using with different sunblocks & foundation. After a while the back of my left hand had a burning sensation, became very itchy & as I washed my hands with soap the entire back of my hand was bright red & extremely itchy. After several minutes & several more washings the redness disappeared. I'm just glad I did not test this on my face. Maybe the tester was contaminated but I will not re-consider this.
