Love It, Like It, or Lose It v.9
Exuviance Age Reverse Toning Neck Cream - "Developed exclusively for the fragile neck and décolletage, this potent firming and exfoliating treatment helps correct the telltale signs of premature aging and UV overexposure."
Thoughts: Couldn't say if the claims are true or not. This stuff is so strongly scented I can't stand to have it anywhere close to my nose! It's heavily perfumed (reminds me of cucumber melon scent-wise) like a lotion you'd find at a bath and body store. I've relegated this to a hand cream as it is nicely moisturizing.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream - "Cetaphil moisturizing cream is clinically proven to provide immediate and lasting relief from extremely dry skin. Its unique formula and superior system of emollients and humectants binds water to the skin, preventing moisture loss. Skin immediately feels hydrated and smooth."
Thoughts: My little tub didn't specify whether this cream was meant for face or body (it seems they've changed the packaging recently) but it did mention it was non-comedogenic, so I decided to use it as a facial moisturizer. My skin has been super dry lately and this stuff is amazing! It sinks in quickly and eases tightness immediately. While I've had a couple small whiteheads since using it's been nothing major and I can't tie them definitively to this cream.
Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover - "This do-it-all formula removes waterproof makeup and contains a lash-strengthening complex that's rich in flavonoids and olive wood extracts."
Thoughts: Works just as well as some of the higher-end (and higher priced) makeup removers I've tried in the past! It does leave behind a bit of greasiness but since I wash my face immediately afterwards I don't find it to be an issue.
Almay One Coat Mascara - "Almay's One Coat Multi-Benefit Mascara builds the ultimate lash look with volume, length, and definition while conditioning lashes."
Thoughts: More like two or three coat mascara! One coat adds a bit a length but at least one more is required for volume and to add some drama. Doesn't flake or smudge.
Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in "Nude Radiance 01" - "The 55% water-infused primer glides across the skin with incredible ease and hydrates instantly. Its blend of mirror-flat intense reflection pearls help to blur minor imperfections for a shimmer-free, youthful luminosity."
Thoughts: Provides glow under sheer foundations and tinted moisturizers but is useless as a primer in regards to filling in pores or fine lines. Great on top of makeup as a highlighter and isn't too shimmery.
