  • Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Stain
    10.0

    Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Stain

    There are two different Tarte Lip Surgence Natural Lip Stains..1.Matte 2.Crayon teinture

    The crayon teinture is referred to as a lip stain, but it's moist and slightly glossy. The Crayon teinture last longer than a lip gloss but wears off before the Matte lip stain. The Matte lip stain is a little dry, but thats what stains are. The color dries, then you add gloss or moisturizer and the dry look and feeling is as good a gone and the color of the stain lasts for hours.. I rate both of the Tarte Lip Stains very High. The colors are bold.The color Lucky in matte and the Crayon Teinture in charmed are my favorite colors of the week. They are both pink. The color lucky that's the matte stain is slighly lighter, yet darker (hard to explain) in color and more natural looking. The Charmed Crayon Teinture is basically a princess pink with a barbie pink glow...the color is basically charming.

    SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5

    Excellent Product

    I'm 41 (with light skin) and I've been using SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5 for about a month. My skin is brighter, fresher looking and super smooth. I was using ROC Retinol serum, but switched to SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5. I haven't really experienced any redness or irritations from using SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5 except right after I apply it. It's a night cream, and by morning the redness is gone. I would rate SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5 at 10, but it's always hard to tell if there is still product in the container after a couple of weeks. I find myself having to twist the top, lean the container back or forwards to get the product out. I even find myself tapping it on a hard surface to get more out. Some of my friends have used this product and claim it’s too harsh, I think the fact I've used ROC retinol for a year before trying SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5 prepared me for the raw feeling one might get when they start using SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5. Start by applying as little as possible (evenly of course) every two days and have a soothing moisturizer waiting in the wings. (Olay regenerist serum is my wing moisturizer) Give SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5 a month or two before giving up on it. If you have a good moisturizer that works for you, you will get through the exfoliation, the flaking, and the sometimes dry skin. The results are really worth it and the compliments I've gotten from my good friends about how great my skin looks, how great I look is priceless.

  • Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions Volume Silicone Free Shampoo

    Pantene hair products deliver everything they promise. There is not a hair product out there, nor salon, nor over the counter that adds volume to my hair like Pantene Sheer Volumizer Shampoo and Conditioners. I've been using Pantene Pro V for years. My fine, blond hair doesn't respond to any shampoo like it does to Pantene. Great Price too!

  • RoC RETINOL CORREXION Deep Wrinkle Serum

    RoC Retinal Corexion Deep Wrinkel Serum has improved the my skin tone (firming) and has diminished fine lines. I've been using this product for six months. With in the first two months of use (twice a day) my friends thought I had botex injections on my forehead. This serum does sting when it's used initially (feel like my face is raw sometimes, but without redness or irritation) and it takes about 60 days to notice the difference in fine lines and skin tone. The serum is not particularly moisturizing and will require an additional product for moisturizing. Skin: combination and sensitive Complexion: light

  • John Frieda Sheer Blonde Luminous Color Glaze

    I'm a natural dark blonde with natural light blond highlights. After using this product for a month, my hair is luminous. My all over hair color really hasn't changed except for the darker shades of blonde in my hair now have a slight honey tint to it, which is nice. My hair is fine, and Sheer Blonde Luminous Color Glaze leaves my hair silky smooth without weighing it down. I recommend this product.

  • Olay Age Defying Classic Cleanser

    Olay Age Defying Classic Cleanser

    Sensitive to Sycilic Acid in this product

    I've used Olay cleaners across the board, and the Age Defying Daily Renewal cleanser is the only cleanser from Olay to dry out my skin and cause breakouts. I'm fairly certain that the cause of the problem is the concentrate level of the Sycilic Acid in the product. If you are sensitive to Sycilic Acid, this product is not for you.

    Kneipp Herbal Bath

    Orange Linden Blossom

    This aroma intense bath oil leaves me relaxed and my skin soft. I have not come across a bath oil with aroma therapy healing properties that delivers what it promises. Each scent offers a unique aroma therapy. Do not pass up the opportunity to bathe in Kneipp Herbal Baths.

    Neutrogena MoistureShine Lip Soother

    It even makes my gums tingle.

    I love the fact it has SPF 20. Dislike the fact it makes my lips and gum's tingly. The gloss factor is way up there. It's one of the best shiny smooth glosses I've found over the counter. It does condition as promised, I just wish it last longer and had less tingle.

  • MAC Mascara X

    MAC Mascara X

    Long, full bushed look.

    This mascara is fabulous! It makes my sparse lashes look long, full and gives my lashes a clean brushed look, Great for everyday use. Because the mascara doesn't clump at all, if you are looking for a mascara to give you the fake eyelash look, this is not the mascara for you. If you are looking for a mascara to wear every wear except the dance club, Mac Mascara X is perfectly for you.

  • Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

    Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

    It's friming my jaw line.. i think

    I'm 38 with combination skin and the skin around my jaw line is starting to sag. Uhg! I bought the micro-sculpting cream more as a preventative step than a solution. I just looked in the mirror at my side profile, I'm pretty sure the skin around my jawline is fuller and is sagging less. I also use a face wash with glycolic acid which dries my skin. This cream hydrates my skin and allows me to continue using glycolic acid. I've also tried the regenrist night cream an though the night cream, goes on smoother , is not sticky and is just as hydrating, it doesn't give your skin the lift the micro sculpting cream seems too. My only complaint about the micro sculpting cream is that its leaves my face feeling a little sticky My Regime: Glycolic face wash by another and Olay Foaming Face Wash, Total Effects Instant Soothing Serum (which diminishes acne when applied a few times to the area), Renerist Micro-Sculpting Cream.
