We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre (my every day/every night moisturizer) and Australian Gold Tinted Facial Sunscreen. I always have backups of both on hand.

Bath and Body Works Cucumber Melon Body Lotions. I’m trying to move put those B&BW lotions out of my collection. I find the lotion thin and sticky. I’m going to stick with old school lotions like Jergens which I find more moisturizing!

Also I finished La Roche Posay Double Repair Moisturizer with SPF 30!

The Ordinary The Buffet Serum and SheaMoisture Glow Getter Pressed Serum Moisturizer… I finished them on the same day. I love when that happens. ☺️

Drunk Elephant C-Tango eye cream. This was an HG product for quite a few years, but I will not be repurchasing. My eyes are at the stage where it is no longer doing much for me. I have replaced with an Avene retrinal product and seeing better undereye firming results.

Started Clarins Multi-Active Jour when I was 30 years old when a saw a little first wrinkle.
6 years later and I have no wrinkles.
It’s the only product I used for several years.

Since I hit 30 this year my fine lines have become so prominent and some wrinkles on my forehead have started to show. Your comment is just what I NEED! Would you say it helps with fine lines? Do you apply the cream all over the face or you use a different product for the under eye area?

COSRX Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence 100ml / 95% Galactomyces/Hydrate and Brighten/Niacin. I apply after toning and before moisturizing.

I just used the last drops of Paula’s Choice 10% Niacinamide booster.
Used it up since I received it for free with an order, otherwise I have never noticed any improvements or results from niacinamide myself; it’s ok to have some in my other products, but I won’t purchase a booster / treatment on it’s own.

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair serum. Upon finishing it a month or so ago I decided not to bother replacing it. I have not noticed a change in my skin since discontinuing its use, so I don’t think it was really doing enough to justify the high price tag. I had started using it a couple years back to address some reddening from sensitized skin, and while it had taken care of most of that, there is some lingering redness that did not go away (especially on my nose, I look perpetually sunburned), but has not increased in the monthish since I stopped using that product. I’ve since replaced it with a $10 serum from Trader Joe’s which has made my skin feel softer and smoother.

Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid & Retinol Eye Serum! Also, I’m on the dregs of a few tubes of Jack Black Lip Balm, so those are next up.

used up the last few drops of a bottle of acure blue tansy oil – i already have a backup ready to go. it’s incredibly moisturizing, i love using it as a final layer for when my serums/toners etc don’t feel like “enough” moisture and it always makes my skin feel super soft. anecdotally, i also feel like it’s one of the only things that helps with the hard, painful cystic zits i get near my temples from time to time. (i also have their solid pressed serum that i use as a spot treatment.)

Replaced the Cosrx Good Morning low pH cleanser. Total last drops on FAB eye duty triple remedy and Paula, oh, forget it, the Resist SLDWD. The three most used products and their names are complex, confusing, and easy to mix up. The Aussie Gold is a bit too occlusive, no never became a stand-by. Next to die: Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater skin. I usually use that when i can’t go in the ocean, but dipping was scarce this summer.

I finished my holy grail Tatcha Cleansing Oil which is my first step cleanser. I also am about a pump away from finishing my Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic and Retinol Eye Serum. I have been using it for several years now and while nothing is going to completely smooth my 66 year old eye skin, it does make the fine lines appear less noticeable.

Good Molecules Instant Cleansing balm. And I have an Olay eye cream on it’s last legs, I cut the tube open to get the last little bits out yesterday…

The Ordinary 2% Hyaluronic Acid serum. It was alright and I’ll probably get another but I have a backup bottle of Peach and Lily’s Glass Skin I need to go through first.

Does this happen to anyone else: The bottle is nearly empty but regardless of how regularly you’re using it, it just stays at that nearly empty level for way longer than it seems like it should? I have three different things – a toner from Clarins, Purity Made Simple cleanser from Philosophy, and a bottle of May Coop’s Raw Sauce – that I use daily and they’re all at that any day now level since the beginning of August. What??
