L'Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment

L'Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment

I love what L’Oreal has done with color cosmetics, but had never used any of their skincare before. In the end, I was very impressed with this serum. I put it on before I put on my moisturizer and makeup in the morning and it made my skin feel like silk! It also allowed my makeup to go on more smoothly and kept the drier parts of my skin nice and moist. I dare say it almost gave me an airbrushed look once my makeup was on. I can breakout occasionally in my t-zone, but this product didn’t cause any irritation or oily patches. It’s a pricier drug store item, but definitely worth it (for a very good product) with the added advantage that a little (just two pumps or so) was needed for my entire face and neck, so a little goes a long way. As the weeks went on, I found that this gave me a smoother and clearer complexion. The serum goes on nicely, sinks right in. It does have a slight floral smell to me, but it didn’t last long. It absorbed quickly without a greasy or heavy feel. My skin looked "fresher" when I used this. I also liked the pump bottle that it comes in. It made it easy to pump out just the right amount, and was small enough for a travel bag. Note: When I didn’t have any hand cream handy I rubbed a little of the serum on my hands and after about five minutes, my skin was super baby soft!

I was simply amazed with how this booster really made a difference in my normally dry skin. After my first few days using the clear, light serum before my regluar moisturizer my skin never looked and felt so soft and smooth. I only needed to use about 3-4 drops each time. It sank in instantly, but left a very silky, smooth finish that didn't feel heavy at all. It created a nice "cushion" for either my day moisturizer or my night cream. Any little fine lines and dry patches on my cheeks that would normally appear were minimized significantly by using the booster in combination with my moisturizer. It really was like the booster supercharged the effects of my moisturizer. I've used several of Dermalogica's products, and for me this is by far one of their best and worth every penny, espcially since the bottle will last a good while due to the small amount needed each application.

This product is a great example of a product that has gone above and beyond the skin care cleansing wipes category. I have skin that is prone to breakouts and oily, so cleansing for me is a serious proposition, since I need my cleanser to do double duty - cleanse and help prevent future breakouts. Having a quick and convenient way to do this (or an option when I can't get to my regular gel cleanser) is definitely what drew me to try these dermalogica wipes. The wipes themselves are fairly large (almost as big as the average Kleenex) and moist, but not super drenched with liquid, so I found them much more pleasurable to use than some others in the past. I usually used them in the evening and after a gym workout. They left my skin very clean and still soft, and were effective at removing makeup as well. I could immediately feel the tingle of some of the ingredients which were antiseptic and helped to prevent the bacteria that often leads to my breakouts. After using daily for only a week, I noticed an improvement in the main areas where I tend to breakout like my forehead and cheeks. If I was running late in the morning I also used them, added some light makeup and my skin looked great. These are a fantastic cleansing option and a must have for all you oily girls out there! Note: These are particularly great for men after working out/sports and teenagers as well.

  • Skin looking a bit tired? A shot of oxygen will do ya. This instant energizing mask deliveres vitamin C, time-released antioxidants, and a moisture fix, to spiff up your complexion.

In Asia and Europe most of my friends and associates always have a water spray on hand and use it regularly. They also have great skin! I loved this thermal water and can say that it is one of the best water sprays I have used. I think it worked wonders for setting my makeup and also when I wanted to dampen my cosmetic sponge to apply my foundation for a natural, dewy effect. It’s a very convenient sized tube that’s perfect for any bag, the plane or the office/gym. It was so refreshing during the day or after work before touching up my makeup for an evening out. This was also wonderful to use in power masks or cloth masks as opposed to regular water. It was also wonderful to use on my body after a gym workout or day at the beach – it left my skin soft and hydrated and also more soothed. The nozzle on the bottle is small but spray is a very strong fine mist (only a press or two is enough for the entire face), and there is no fragrance. This also made the perfect starting point to applying my richer night creams before bed. I found that my skin really absorbed the creams better, and after using it this way for several weeks, my skin has never looked better! This is a must have product for everyone’s skin care routine.

  • My mom doesn't like going to the spa (go figure!) but now she can enjoy a great spa treatment in the comfort of her own home.

I get to try a lot of skin creams because of what I do and while a lot of ones that I’ve chosen have worked well, Zelens Skin Science Cellular DNA Protection Day Cream is one of the few that I’ve used and woken up to significantly better skin! Zelens Skin Science Day Cream was very nice to use. It absorbed into my skin very well, and was extremely hydrating, but not at all oily or greasy. The cream felt slightly exfoliating when I applied on my skin, and within days my skin was simply smoother, softer and little discolorations in my skintone were evened out. I found that after several weeks of using this along with the eye cream (see review above) I felt confident enough to wear significantly less makeup while I was out and about during the day! This is a product that is absolute luxury, effective and worth the price without question. Extra Info: This product line was created by Mr. Marko Lens, a plastic surgeon and international authority on skin cancer and skin aging.

Yes, I have found an eye cream that has seriously made me rethink the entire eye cream category. That’s because with Zelens, from the first moment I looked at the box knew I was going to have a special experience. The box actually looks like it’s been created for an expensive piece of jewelry or designer wallet, with its deep green and brown coloring. When I pulled the satin ribbon, a velvet pedestal slid out which the cream sits on. The jar is a beautiful frosted green glass with a silver medallion hanging from the side. Even better, the cream itself is pure luxury. I loved the texture, which is gel/cream hybrid that’s light and velvety. It also has a very nice fresh smell. I was very happy to also learn that over half of the ingredients are natural, such as Green Tea, and Vitamins A, and C. The results are what amazed me next. Within 1 day of using the eye cream I saw a marked difference in the puffiness around my eyes, the lines were completely smoothed, my skin was hydrated for the entire day and the whole area looked brighter. As much as I loved it, I do have to say that I preferred using this in the evenings before bed to in the mornings before my concealer, as sometimes I would get a little residue as a result of the mix. I used it without fail every day for several weeks, and have now completely fallen in love!

These are small curved gauze-type strips soaked in a soy based concentrate that I laid on my under eye area for about 10-20 minutes. I found after several weeks (using them 2x week) of use that my under eye area really was more hydrated and it also helped with the dark circles. Upon the first use my under eye area was definitely plumper, but after using the masks for a month, I did noticed a significant reduction in fine lines and dark circles. The packaging is also innovative. There are 10 masks which you place on the under eye region. Please note: Once you open the disc that holds the eye patches and add the liquid you have to use the patches within 10 weeks, once you open the product you must use it otherwise they dry out. The eye masks are not individually wrapped so you need to use one at least once a week (but believe me it’s not a hardship!). It really added moisture to my eye area and made that area brighter and fresher. This is a nice addition to my overall skin care routine when I just want to really treat myself with a beauty indulgence!

Sekkisei was one I was not previously familiar with, but I’m really pleased with my first outing. Although it’s labeled a “lotion”, its consistency is that of a slightly thick water, which I applied with a cotton pad. After using this lotion each day after cleansing in the AM and PM for over three weeks, I could see my skin getting brighter and clearer each day. I had an amazing glow that has made me never want to give this product up. It made my skin feel smoother, so soft and clean/refreshed. A truly lovely luxury for the skin!

I really have gotten used to multi-purpose beauty products, so a moisturizer must do more than one thing (and well) to get my attention. This is definitely a moisturizer that I liked more and more the longer I used it and saw multiple results. This moisturizer has illuminating shimmer, as well as sunscreen and skin evening properties. I did like this from the start – It's got a light, pleasant scent that reminded me vaguely of marshmallows (a very nice change of pace actually). The texture is not tacky, comfortable enough on the face so I didn’t feel sticky, (but I did need to wash my hands after applying). It is light-to-mid weight, features a subtle pearly bronze shimmer (which helps provide the "healthy glow") and the sunscreen is avobenzone based. After several weeks my skin looked more even and I really liked the way my skin glowed even if I didn’t wear much make up. I didn’t experience any breakouts or clogging of my pores. I think this is really a lovely product from this new CHANEL skin care line that deserves your attention! Note: This product will work best on normal to drier skins.

This mask it not only provided exfoliation but also tightened my pores and gave me a glow that was just unbelievable. I applied it on my freshly cleaned skin and left it on for 5-7 minutes. It is orange and the texture is sticky as opposed to creamy, which left a thin film over my face. I did feel a little sting at first but it went away as I left this on my face and neck. It was very easy to rinse off with water and a wash cloth. It instantly made my skin glow, and all products that I put on my face afterwards were absorbed much better than they were pre-mask. I am usually oily in the T-zone and dry everywhere else and my skin had much more balance. After using the mask my pores appeared much smaller as well. I was happy to also see some black heads gone too! I applied my moisturizer right after using this and felt it soaking into my face and neck. The skin on my neck also improved dramatically as well. I found that after regular use it really was useful for maintaining a healthy balance of moisture and oil control in my skin! In addition my skin feels softer that it ever has. This mask also contains a skintone evening complex (perfect for hyperpigmentation) made up of Azelaic, Glycolic and Lactic Acids. This is why there is a tingling sensation; but it is not a hurtful sting, however I would not recommend this for those with very sensitive skin. The jar is very large and a little goes a long way, which makes this luxury purchase more than worth the price for the amazing results I got.

It’s a very unique concept – It started out on my face as a gel, and as I massaged it in, it turned into an oil. The oil felt soft and smelled amazing (a lovely orange/tangerine scent), and took off every last trace of my makeup. When I added water to rinse it off, it changed yet again into a cleansing milk and came off easily, with no oily residue. I was left with a very smooth, soft, clean face. I never used anything like it. It's very pleasing to the senses. It smelled great, felt nice and left my face clean and soft, and hydrated! My skin did not feel stripped or dry, just a clean, smooth canvas at the end of the cleansing process. This cleanser contains Marula Oil, which is a "dry" oil, almost instantly absorbed by the skin. It felt so good to massage it onto my face that I looked forward to my very pleasant evening experience every night. There were even some evenings when I was so tired that I decided to skip moisturizer, and found that I really could! This is worth every penny, as it is truly a luxurious and effective product. And even better, the three-phase process allows you to pack fewer skin care products if you are crunched for space!

This is a new Organic brand for me and I was very pleased with my first product from Mod Skin Care. The Samurai is a rice-based scrub that was smooth and yet super effective at cleansing my pores, giving my face a great glow and making it feel amazingly clean (but not stripped). I used the scrub 3x week in the AM and sometimes after a day in the sauna. The grains can be used to give a more intense scrub by using it on dry skin, or more gentle by using it on dampened skin, which makes it the perfect scrub for all skin types! I am always on the search for a face scrub that cleans and doesn't dry out or break out my skin, and it looks like it found me. I kept reaching for this scrub as the weeks went on and it left my face feeling soft and firm after continued use.” Note: Mod Skin Labs products are free of synthetic detergents, dyes, or fragrances. Their products are also animal cruelty-free.

This is an excellent moisturizer at a fantastic price. After using this for several weeks, my skin, which had previously looked a little dull and had some creases and fine-lines, all but disappeared. In particular I saw a significant decrease in the lines around my mouth and eyes. The other benefits of using the Skin Genesis were much more even-toned and soft skin. The texture is smooth, light and silky and the smell is very pleasant. I also love that I got SPF protection without any sticky or filmy feel, which can sometimes happen in products with SPF in them. My skin was moisturized all day and I didn’t experience any breakouts. I would love to have this lotion for use in the summer months with a much higher SPF – perhaps it’s in the works!” G.L. Note: This moisturizer worked best with normal to dry skins. Those of you with VERY dry skin may not get enough moisture with this product.

The base has less clay than the original Fango mud mask, and more moisturizers. I also used it as a quicker treatment 1-2x week by applying on my face, neck and décolleté, with a rinse off in a warm shower. The Fango did tingle a bit when applied onto the face, but after a few minutes, it was gone. This is not a “hard drying” mask. The mud doesn’t dry out; because it is made to restore moisture for dry/sensitive skin. The Fango left my skin incredibly translucent and amazingly soft and I was stunned by the results. The more I used it on a regular basis my skin looked more taut, silky, smooth, and relaxed - less stressed. This is a truly fabulous product. Note: Fango Delicato isn't for those with super sensitive skin, because the tea tree and peppermint oils are quite strong. Depending on your tolerance, it can be extremely tingly and may cause some irritation. This also comes in tube form for travel or the gym.

The serum is full of what I’m always looking for in an anti-aging product. Powerful anti-oxidants, moisturizing agents as well as skin toning benefit. I used the “h” serum both morning and night after my cleansing routine and before my moisturizer for a little under a month and I must say that I am extremely impressed with what the serum has done so far. The “h” Serum reduced the discoloration on my forehead and cheek area. (This has been a troublesome area for me for the last few years, and this is the first product to really make a significant difference). I know that with continued use, this Serum will totally take care of these areas for me. In addition, my wrinkles have smoothed out and my skin feels smoother and even toned overall. Yes, I have even gotten a few compliments from people who have said my skin looks so young and have asked me what I’m “using” (I think they are hinting I’ve had Botox!). As for the rest of my face, it felt incredibly smooth, (almost like I used a micro-dermabrasion product every day)! This is luxury skin care product that is so incredible it is absolutely worth the price tag. I will not hesitate to continue to use this to continue to see the results that I have gotten in such a short time.

I used it over two days when I had a pimple and it dried the blemish out. After I applied it over night, the very next morning the blemish was noticeable reduced, and by the next day almost completely gone. I was very impressed – the ingredients in and of themselves are not unique, but it must the quality and/or combination of the ingredients because nothing has worked for me quite as well as this. Sometimes, if I even felt a pimple coming on, I would dab this one at night and the next morning, virtually gone. This product is worth every penny to know that I can have clear skin in a very short amount of time! It’s the perfect size to throw in a gym bag or pack and now I can't imagine going anywhere without it.

So I am always magnetically drawn to products which promise flawless skin. So you can imagine how happy I was when I discovered that per-fekt skin perfection gel is a primer, foundation and magical air-brusher all in one that delivers a refined finish without feeling mask-like. I loved the silky, mousse-y texture of the gel (just a few pumps covered my entire face) which instantly mattified my skin yet provided hydration all day. On most days I wore it under my makeup (I also added some concealer under my eyes when going to work), but I also found that on more casual weekend’s I could wear it alone. Also impressive: it didn’t budge because it's sweat proof and water-resistant. There are little reflective particles in it which are very flattering and the color match was also great. I found Rich could be used on a fair range of brown skin tones (There are also several colors available which are lighter and one darker, Decadent, than this one, which would be better for those of you around a Serena Williams complexion). Once I put it on in the morning I was primed and ready to go! I just love this and can’t wait to try the body per-fektor next Note: This is for those of you who don’t need heavy coverage as it is not a foundation.

Since it has moisturizing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, on warmer days I didn't have to use extra moisturizer. One spray was generally enough for my whole face too! I did find that it was a little sticky right after spraying, but it absorbed quickly and left my face smooth. I love a lemony fragrance, but even for those of you who are not huge fans of fragrance in your products, it really was not too strong, and the scent faded quickly. It also didn't break me out, and it made my skin feel soft and refreshed. It is preservative free and 78% organic. I really felt that this completed my cleansing process and prepped my skin for moisturizer. It contains lots of wonderful ingredients such as floral water of lemon balm and ginger, herbal infusion of grapefruit, orange, and white tea; and aloe vera. It’s perfect for travel and the gym due to the size and shape of the bottle as well. Lovely product!
