MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator

MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator

This is one of the biggest beauty surprises for me so far all year. I actually did not know that this was part of a new MAC collection (Future Earth Collection). True to its name, it is black, gooey and grainy upon opening the jar. But any unpleasant associations end there…. When I first started applying it I noted with a smile that it really did look like I was “rolling around in the dirt”. However, that temporary visual effect was worth the spectacular results I got. When I used the scrub for the first time I used it on dampened skin and immediately felt the difference – the texture of the scrub, which is a gel based-grain scrub, changed to a velvety smooth cream and exfoliated my skin gently but thoroughly. After rinsing it off my skin looked amazing and was smooth, super clean with no dryness. I also used it as a leave on mask for 10 minutes 2x week and it always left my skin supple. With regular use, my skin was glowing, my blackheads were gone and my skin tone also evened out. This is simply an outstanding scrub and I cannot live without this one!

Sonia Kashuk has become a master at creating not only cosmetics but cosmetic tools for the masses that are a perfect combination of form+function, and this foundation brush is right at the top of my list of favorite Kashuk products. This foundation brush is about 7 in" long with a black handle conviently shaped to fit perfectly in your fingers. I loved how light it was, and how sturdy the bristles were. They were soft, yet firm and helped me to apply my cream/liquid foundations smoothly and evenly. I didn't have any brush lines, and the brush distributed all the foundation on my face, and did not leave residual foundation on the brush. It comes in clear hard plastic case, so it was easy to store in the bathroon or to pack for travel. For those of you who love applying concealer and cream blush with a brush, you should know that this also worked great for me on both fronts. I loved that is was also versatile. The brush was easy to clean and really held up well after getting regular use week after week. This is a fantastic brush at a great price and should be in everyone's makeup kit!

Whether you actually have a trip coming up this weekend or for the soon-to-be-here holidays, no matter; this kit is an absoute must for your bath/body routine. This is one of the most beautiful, well thought out travel kits with products that also I loved to smell and use. The zip close box, made of a very sturdy cardboard, is beautifully designed as you can see above. It was the perfect size for travel, elegantly packed and I love the color combinations. The whole presentation made this kit look much more expensive than it is, (although this is still a luxury travel kit purchase). The products all contain a Chinese ingredient called yuan zhi. It's indeed relaxing and the scent reminded me of a very soft berries tempered with some citrus notes. It's very unique and I used the sleep mist often just to have that scent around me during the day. With the 100ml size (and under) of the products and the plastic bag which holds them, I also didn't have to worry about secuity at the airport as they were created with FAA regulations in mind. The shower gel and lotion were very concentrated and left just the right amount of fragrance and moisture on my skin. For drier areas like my feet, I augmented the lotion with the balm cream. If you're anything like I am, you will want to also get the full sized versions of everything in this line to keep at home! This is also a perfect gift idea for the beauty lover in your life." G.V. Here's a complete list of the kit's contents: relaxing yuan zhi bath & shower 100ml relaxing yuan zhi body lotion 100ml relaxing yuan zhi pulse balm 7ml relaxing yuan zhi sleep mist 30ml see through bag zip close box with hang tag

  • I really need to invest in one of these. Every time I see one online I think about buying one but I haven't yet. But they are quite important to every girls make up cycle.

This product is "24 carat gold" in every sense of the word. Through a happy "beauty run in" with a lovely sales associate while at New York department store Takashimaya, I enjoyed a mini treatment with this Gold Revitalizer exfoliating mask. After loving the results on a small portion of my hand, I was eager to try in on my face and for an extended time. I could not get over the fact that it contains actual 24 carat gold flakes thoughout the entire formula. The reasoning behind using the gold, according to Cosme Proud, is that natural gold contains ions help to reach, exfoliate, and moisturize even the skin's deepest layer. All I knew at first was that not only did the jar and mask itself look elegant and extravagant, but when I used the small spatula (included with the jar) to scoop out the gel mask, it was silky and laced with tons of 24 gold flakes which were surprisingly soft on my skin. As per the instructions, I applied on it slightly damp skin and smoothed the gel over my entire face, concentrating a bit more on my nose area which tends to get blackheads. I left the mask on for about 10 minutes until it dried. When it did dry, it was not to a very hard, cracked consistency, but rather a firm but still pliant one. The gold flecks remained on my face throughout the entire period. Next, as per the instructions, I began the process of massaging my face so that the gold flecks then began to exfoliate the skin, and then the dead skin, etc rolled off. What I was left with my skin that we so soft it was incredible. The was not a single rough surface on my skin - even my nose and chin, which are usually the most difficult areas for me to keep the pores from clogging. My skin was glowing, hydrated and soft without feeling irritated or dry at all. I enjoyed using this mask about 2-3 times a week and absolutely loved the results. This is without a doubt one of the best skincare products that I've come across this year and is now one of my top mask products. This is a bit of a splurge, but one that you won't regret. This revitalizer will work for all skin types, with the exception of very sensitive or acne prone.

  • This is so easy to use and the color is great.

This scent started out SO bright and fresh and clean, with the Mandarin and Bergamot the most prominent notes on me. It then enveloped me to the point that it made me feel completely uplifted and happy! Next the sweeter, softer more velvety notes like Jasmin Tea, Plum Blossom and Cherry Blossom came up on my skin, which didn't diminish the first set of notes (this is a very common thread in all of his fragrances - they shift and change but one layer of notes does not necessarily "push to the side" new ones). The final composition of the scent really brought out the woody Orris and Oud notes on my skin which were warm, sweet and very sophisticated. This is a scent for a women who is sure of herself, loves something different and can appreciate the Story that Neil is telling with this creation. Because this a streamlined "lighter" scent, on drier skin like mine, I did need an extra spritz or two throughout the day to continue the staying power, but on more oily skins this will certainly last longer. Neil decided to keep his traditional, classic bottle for this fragrance, and it goes a long way to this working for men/women, as all of his fragrances are designed for. .

I have fallen in love with several of La Mer's products, but I was a little skeptical of this because I figured, "how can it really improve the results of my beloved Original La Mer cream?" I reminded myself of the old saying: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". But the box with the sea foam green was calling my name. After a few days, I decided to dive in... The Hydrating Infusion is a serum that is meant to hydrate skin and prepare it for the La Mer creams (original or gel-cream). I used about two pumps after cleansing and spread it between my hands before gently massaging into my face. It had a watery consistency with some weight to it, was smooth in texture, clear and spread easily. The fragrance was the classic la mer scent to me - slightly oceanic/citrusy, and did not linger very long on my skin. The serum sank into my skin very quickly, and I immediately felt a nice hydrating, "plumping" sensation on my skin. It didn't make my more oily spots greasier, and it hydrated the drier areas, like my cheeks nicely. The way I decided to test this product was to continue to use my La Mer original cream as usual, and see if there was improvement by layering it on top of the infusion. I have to say that La Mer has done it once again. After a week using both products together daily, my skin looked even more radiant than before, and my makeup even seemed to last longer. As I continued the regimen over several more weeks, I was even happier at how even my skin tone was, and how great my skin looked in the morning in particular. I didn't have any breakouts or irritations, and I found that because the infusion in so concentrated, two pumps in the am and pm was the perfect amount to get good coverage on my face, so the bottle definitely lasts several months. The packaging is great with the pump and shape of the bottle, so this is perfect for travel and the gym. Note: On very busy mornings I sometimes only had time to use the infusion, and my skin continued to look fantastic, glowing, and radiant with perfect hydration. This is another La Mer gem that made a significant difference in my skin and I now I won't be without it!"

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.

Olay has made incredible strides with the creation of this product. It is a tinted moisturizer, which many of you love to use, but since this is an Olay product, there are some additional benefits and product innovations which I was impressed with. The see-through tube reveals a color “swirl” which is the tinted moisturizer shade + the moisturizer (like a “cosmetic” soft ice cream cone!). I really liked this effect. I pumped just once to release the mixed product in my hand, blended it together and applied to my face with my fingers. (Note: I also had great results using a slightly damp blender sponge like Sonia Kashuk’s. As this is a “tint” the color blended in very nicely with my skin tone (I used light/medium). Think of using a “wash” as opposed to a “paint” to color your walls. I let it sink in for a few minutes to set. It felt light on my skin and really made my skin look luminous immediately. When I was ready to begin applying the rest of makeup my skin was moisturized with no oily spots. I found that a bit of concealer, then blotting with a sheet and finished with some powder gave me the best results to really look polished. On the weekends I sometimes skipped the power if I was just running around. The finish without powder is dewy (not oily) which was very nice and just what I wanted. I loved how my skin looked when I wore this and found that each and every time it went on evenly and effortlessly. Please note that since this is a tint, you should have a fairly good skin tone to begin with. This will not cover up major skin discolorations, hyperpigmentation, freckles, etc, but it does contain ingredients that with time do help improve the overall tone of the skin. I found that a few very light blemish marks did fade after several weeks of using the product as well. My skin felt plump, moisturized and little fine lines were much less noticeable. The product also has a sunscreen which is on the lower end (15), but fine for daily short term sun exposure. This is a “higher end” drugstore product that is certainly worth every penny. Note: This will work best for normal to dry skins, as it may make oily skin appear more shiny/oily. Also, even though this is a tint, women that are darker than a Whitney Houston shade for example, should use the medium/dark shade for best results.

To tell you the truth, I have been so immersed in Olay’s facial care products (Definity, Total Effects, etc.), that I have not used one of their body washes in a few years! I’m glad to say that it’s come to an end with my testing of their new Daily Purifying wash. This body wash looks different than their past washes, and it’s also is right up my alley with Sea Salts, since I’ve experienced great results from many products & spa treatments using them. The texture is that of a smooth, gelatinous liquid with the scrubbing beads and sea salts embedded within. The combination of the beads and salts gave me a really nice scrub; energizing and very good for the key areas like elbows and knees, while being extremely moisturizing and gentle at the same time. Note that this is not a high lathering body wash however (didn't bother me). I also loved the scent, which is fresh/marine. I loved using this after a day at the beach or a gym workout. After rinsing it off it left my skin soft and supple without any film residue. It's also quite concentrated, so a little goes a long way, making this a great buy as well. This is a perfect solution for those of you who have dry skin and would like a cleanser/exfoliator in one!

From the packaging to the performance, Clarins really thought this product through. Each of the 8 masks is in a small tube and the white cream is lightweight, silky and creamy to the touch. It is so concentrated that I easily got 3 uses out of each tube, (which is also ideal for travel) which covered my face/neck in a light layer. I left the mask on about 10 minutes and from my first use was amazing at how much my face simply glowed! After rinsing, my skin was smooth, my pores were diminished considerably, and I just looked so energized and fresh. I continued to use the mask about 2x week along with the Clarins Bright Plus HP Brightening Peel 4.2 oz and could not have been happier with the results. My skin toned was completely evened out (darker spots were significantly lighter). I had no irritation or break outs and my skin had a rosy glow for a day or two following each mask application. If you are looking for an effective mask that does more than just relax & moisturize, then this is a must have product.

I usually have good skin with an occasional blemish every now and then. Well, on a Friday morning I woke up to a huge pimple on my cheek (cannot ignore that!) and I had about 2 days before a big family event (tons of pics that were going to be taken), to get rid of it. It was that day I saw the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion I had been asked to review and I hoped that it would work as well as I have heard over the years. I decided to begin my assault that morning a few hours before work, Although the product is meant for over night use because it leaves little pink clay dots on the skin where it is applied. (Not attractive but I can live with it). I made sure to use it as per the instructions (not shaking the bottle, instead putting the q tip directly into the bottom of the bottle and pulling it straight out so that the pink clay lotion surrounds the tip). I applied it to my pimple and went back to bed. I woke up a few hours later to begin getting ready for work and rinsed it off. While it obviously had not dissapeared, it was noticably less red and a tiny bit smaller. So far so good... That evening before bed I used it in the same manner and the next morning it was much smaller and had almost completely dried up, without irritating the rest of the skin around it. That night I repeated the process and the day of the event just used a small dab of concealer and I could not see anything. I would say that if you have signifinant acne, then you need a intensive acne skin care/prescription product, but for those of you who get an occasional pimple, skin irritation and/or white heads this is a fantastic product, (and given a day or two) will clear them up completely. It should be noted that the packaging is glass, so it should be wrapped and sealed in a zip lock bag when you travel to avoid breakage. This product will always be in my skin care collection, no matter what! Since just a tiny bit is needed for a pimple, (and if you have them infrequently), this will easily last a year, also making it a smart skin care investment treatment.

This product was created to be soap and a sponge that also exfoliates. I used the Cucumber Melon, which was really refreshing and clean, and pretty authentic with the fruit notes. When I opened the soap for the first time, I could see that in the middle of the soap was the sponge, which was surrounded by the soap itself. When I got it wet in the shower, I could actually feel the sponge material on my body and it automatically created a nice lather effect. The scrubbing effect was gentle yet thorough and was perfect for the gym (and travel) as it also comes with its own soap dish. (With repeated use, the soap then appears as a sponge with the soap lathering from within it.). The cleansing effect is nice – not too drying and very thorough with out leaving any residue or film on the skin. If you have very dry skin however, you will need additional moisturizer after using. For those of you who like to get a quick shower in AM, this is the perfect time saver, and it’s also a great product for the family, as kids can easily hold and use the product and get a great clean as well. Note: Clean Logic products are paraben free & made of natural ingredients.

I have combination skin which gets very oily and shiny in my T-zone area. I judge how well a powder works for me based on how this area looks about mid day after applying first thing in the AM, and then how much more I need to get me through the end of the day, in addition to how it makes my skin look and how it feels on my skin. With this powder I was very impressed with not only how well it kept the shine down, but how nice and finished my face looked, whether I applied foundation/tinted moisturizer first or not. On most days after using this powder, by the afternoon I just needed a small reapplication, which took me through the end of the work day. The color of the powder itself is white in the case, but translucent on the skin. This was great because it was "goof proof" to get a flattering match to my skin tone*. There is no real fragrance to speak of and it has a nice texture. The powder was smooth going on the brush and silky on my skin. The finished look was matte, but with a nice brightening effect, so that it did not look like a mask. It was also easy to take along in my day or evening bag with the retractable kabuki brush and the magnetic closure on the powder case. Cynde has a great product here! *Note: You must use the powder according to these instructions: sweep the brush onto the powder, then sweep on the back of the hand to diffuse the particles further. Then apply to the t-zone first sweeping outwards to the rest of the face. If you apply the powder straight from the brush on to the face you will get a whitesh cast on your face which will also be prominent if you have darker brown skin.

So you want a dark nail, but not necessarily blue and not all the way black. Here’s the answer! This is a beautiful, alluring, deep purple with blue accents (not purple-black) with a bit of a neon effect. The glitter is fun. It has touches of red, magenta and blue; and really makes this color stand out. The formula itself is on the thicker side, and smooth. It is more of a matte finish, so I had a glossy top coat applied which I really loved. It lasted nicely during the week with a touch of top coat every few days. However I did find that because of the glitter, it took a few more cotton balls than normal to completely remove. I found that by applying a thicker basecoat at the beginning of my manicure, it did make it a little easier to remove the glitter particles from my nail bed. The color itself will look especially wonderful on dark and very dark brown skins, but also for lighter skin tones that want a more dramatic look like I did. This is a lovely, unique color and I’m very happy with my first experience with China Glaze!

I loved how my cuticles felt while using it. This salve lasted forever on my hands/nails, even after several hand washes during the day, and they continued to feel soft and moisturized! The lemon/citron scent is truly lovely. It’s not too lemony; just authentic enough with a touch of feminine sweetness. It felt like silk on my fingertips and then it disappeared ever so gently into my skin with out feeling greasy or sticky. The label color coordination with the scent of the product is clever as well. I just had a blast having this product and it made me smile every time I opened it up! Once the product is finished, you can re use the tin to organize your paper clips, tacks, or precious coins! P.S. It worked so nicely that I snuck it onto my very dry ankles and bam! -- my ankles felt so soft.

Many cosmetic lines are featuring more and more beautiful works of art within the actual makeup palette, and this one is truly a stand out creation. This is part of the Lancôme Maharani Jewels Collection 2008. The image etched into the powder is a beautiful elephant, as an ode to India’s culture. The brilliance is that each of the 3 colors in the actual elephant is a beautiful shade that is part of the bronzer. There’s a light pink, deep shimmery gold and deep reddish/orange. The elephant itself is actually “raised” a bit for a nice 3 dimensional effect. The outer compact is a nice Tortoiseshell-brown which works nicely with the theme for this collection. I used my bronzer brush to swirl all the colors together and just loved the flattering, healthy glow effect it gave me (swatch above gives an idea of what it looks like together). This bronzer had just the right amount of shimmer, the color had very good staying power and best of all, this will work with all skin tones since the three shades work to pick up and enhance all undertones. For those women who have very dark brown complexions, this can serve as a very nice highlighter on brow bones and cheek bones used in conjunction with your blush. This just made me smile every time I wore it. Truly a treasure and will also be a collectors item for sure.

They are Uber Chic wet wipes for adults – and they were super effective. Before my shower I would pull out one of the rectangular-shaped wipes and use the textured side (with several rows of exfoliating granules built into the wipe) and applied it to my major trouble spots – my elbows and knees. It should be noted that the textured side is not painfully rough, but it is very abrasive, and not as wet as a normal wet wipe. This is what makes it a good choice for those who have skin that is not very sensitive and prefer a more aggressive scrub. The fragrance is a pleasant pink grapefruit that does not linger. I was very impressed with how easily the wipes got rid of the dead skin and made these areas feel nice and soft. I then turned it over to the softer, buffing side of the wipe and applied that in the circular motion for a minute or two. When I was finished, my skin looked much, much, better, and after using them several times a week for several weeks, my skin was absolutely glowing. While the container itself is a tad bulky for travel, I simply put them in a zip lock bag for packing, and then kept the container at home or the gym. Just remember that since they are a drier wipe, it’s essential that you remember to close the lid completely. I love innovation, effectiveness, and the bright pink spoke to me as well. This is a winner in my book. Note: This is NOT a product for those with sensitive skin!

Kanebo makes one of the best body care brands in the world. Why? Because their products combine great ingredients which really care for skin, feature a subtle yet still memorable fresh fragrance and create a “luxury” cleansing feeling. The relaxing body wash is a smooth, silky, pearlescent light mint green color (as is the actual packaging). With a gentle press on the bottle the concentrated wash came out and was so soft and refreshing on my skin. (The fragrance actually brought me back to a wonderful business trip I took to Tokyo a few years ago where I had a “feeding frenzy” trying amazing Japanese skin care products). It was the green tea and bamboo extract fragrance that took me back. It a really is a light, relaxing scent. I loved using this at the end of the day, especially after a hot, humid day, as this removed every trace of city dirt and grime, and left my skin soft and supple. If you have very dry skin, you will need a bit of lotion on key points like elbows, knees and legs, but otherwise, this provided a great amount of light moisture without feeling like there was any film or residue left on my skin. A pampering treat that every beauty lover should have in their body care collection!

I used this about 3x week before the body wash. After working all my critical spots (elbows, knees, feet, décolletage), and then rinsing, it left my skin smooth and super soft. The grains in the scrub are cushioned in a soft, fresh smelling gel/cream emulsion, which was very effective at exfoliating but not harsh on my skin at all. The tube itself is a fairly large size, and I used for several weeks and did not even get half way though it. The fragrance mimics that of the body wash, again a green tea infusion. Its lovely pale mint green packaging looks nice in the shower as well for all you packaging junkies out there too!

This cute little blue sponge is a jack of all trades. The sponge is firm upon taking it out of the clear plastic case, so the first thing I did was to the sponge and run it under water, getting it completely wet. It doubled in size and then had soft, pillow-like appearance. Next, I squeezed the sponge out very well so that it was slightly damp. Then I swiped it across my cream foundation and dabbed it first in the mid section of my face near my nose, sweeping it outward towards the edges of my face (cheek, forehead, and chin). Within a minute or two the foundation was dry and the coverage was fantastic. With the sponge I was able to get to all the corners of my eyes and nose. The top of the sponge is narrower and perfect for dabbing around the corners of the nose, or on blemishes, while the bottom, wider part is what I used to actually apply my foundation on the majority of my face. With the sponge, my foundation looked natural, yet had a very nice med/sheer coverage with a tad bit of a dewy appearance. For my concealer, I dabbed a bit directly under my eye with my concealer brush and then used the top narrow part of the sponge to tap into my skin until it blended seamlessly. With cream blush, I found the best way to use it was by tapping the bottom half lightly on the blush and then applying in a circular motion on my cheeks. Beautiful! This is a great little makeup tool that I’ll always have in my kit. Note: Here is a rinsing tip. Try rinsing the sponge after use by letting as much of the makeup wash off as possible with plain water. Then apply a small dab of a simple gel cleanser to clean any remaining makeup from the sponge. It doesn’t come with a storage case, per say, but you can try setting it atop the actual clear case that the sponge comes in to dry.

The afternoon “glow” – which is really a nice word for shine, is something that I look to avoid at all costs. In the summer heat, it’s usually an uphill battle, with various products producing so-so-to-good results. Sonia Kashuk has created a product which goes in the very good category. It’s a spray powder which I sprayed directly on to my powder brush as per the instructions. Within seconds I could see my t-zone shine disappearing. My skin felt soft and smooth and the powder has a nice, subtle scent. During a few of the days I tested this, I was in 90+ degree heat/humidity and on those days I did need to give myself another spritz during the afternoon, but all in all, I was really pleased with how it tamed my oilies without breaking me out. It also worked really well with both my foundation and tinted moisturizer. It didn’t change the color, ball up or create dry patches. The powder is fine and mostly translucent, but there is still a lightly colored pigment in this powder, so this will work best on women up to a Kerry Washington shade. Great for travel too & fantastic price to boot!
