Kose Seikisho Perfect Cleansing Oil- I originally was using this as a double cleanser for makeup removal, but it works so well I use it as a cleanser. Being acne-prone it really prevents my pores from clogging.

SinfulColors nail polish- really cheap but stays on for a long time, especially if you put on a top coat. Also has some really nice colors.

Mizani Coconut souffle- I've got natural hair and it's the only thing that moisturizes my hair without making it oily or gross-feeling.

Asian sheet masks- some of the ones I have used have really brightened my face and made it hydrated; they also don't break me out (rather they help clear up the skin). I'm obsessed!

Those are my favorites

LNL,
Does the Xtend Life Men's Facial Fluid has a clear or creamy consistency like the body lotion? Is it moisturizing enough or you need to apply several times in a day?

My fave:
1. Paula's Choice cleanser, moisturizer and BHA/AHA
2. Retin-A cream 0.1% (made by Ortho, Montreal, a Johnson&Johnson division)
3. 30% TCA from MUAC
4. Xtend Life body lotion (also use for face)
5. Xtend Life supplements
6. Invisible Zinc (personally I don't like wearing sunscreen, but I have to since I use acids and Retin-A]
7. Clinique moisturizer (will discontinue use when finished)
8. Skin Biology copper peptides 2x strength and skin signals (I use it after peels, but don't like the smell though)

It has the same consistency as the body lotion, when I first ordered the Mens Fluid, I found out after from members here that I paid more for it when its the exact same formulation with the exception of Witch Hazel (which is included in the Mens) and Manuka Honey (which is included in the body lotion); the body lotion costs less so for my future orders I will be purchasing the Xtendlife body lotion - btw the Manuka Honey in the body lotion is more beneficial than the witch hazel b/c it has antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties (keeps acne away). I apply it in the morning, once a day and that is enough to keep me moisturized all day.

Dior Skinflash - no more dark under eye circles
Sisley Phyto-Touche Eclat - perfect skin in bottle form
Shiseido sunscreens - so smooth and non-greasy
Skinceuticals Retinol 0.5 - what LnL said
Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm - best lip balm I've ever used
Sisley Hydra Flash - best moisturizer, doubles as eye cream and mask
Sisley Lyslait - probably the best cleansing milk
Sisley Night Complex - a potent complexion booster
well... probably most Sisley products. And maybe Skinceuticals sunscreens, I'm not sure yet, but the Daily Defense is nice.

I have many....here are a few:

1. Nuxe Nirvanesque (moisturiser for dry skin), because it has no mineral oil= no spots and leaves my skin feeling so soft and moisturised all day and smells really good too.

2. Kiehl's SPF 50 UV protect stick. Great for under eyes and is not so watery it takes a day and age to dry so I don't have to wait for ages to apply my make-up! Also is not at all greasy and colourless.

3. Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner- needs a good eyeliner brush (doesn't have to be bobbi browns- I use a Boots branded eyeliner brush), goes on like a dream, and thats comming from someone who has used liquid eyeliner every day for the past 4 years- this stuff is just so much better in so many ways!

4. Kerastase Nectar Thermique. Smells of clean, leaves my hair feeling really silky and does not weigh it down at all. Well recommended!

5. Philosophy Pure Grace perfume. Smells clean and fresh and feminine. Just wish they made a stronger version of it so I don't need to reapply after 6 hours.

6. Dermalogica daily microfoliant. Leaves my skin soft without scratching it to peices and exfoliates at the same time. Its made with ground rice which is very gentle on facial skin.

7. Mac eyeshadow, great for potent eye colours that stay put ALL day!

8. water! Drink loads- it doesn't make my skin any clearer- its clear to begin with! but it does add to the plumpness

9. fruit and veg- now this keeps my skin clear and has a luminosity to it-I know its the f&v rather then the water as I only started drinking enough 2 years ago yet I started eating f&v about 8 years ago and have had fewer spots then before and also noticed in the 1 year in the middle of that, where I ate refined and packaged foods my skin became dull, sallow and got spots.

1. DIY vitamin c serum (simple version) -it helps reduce my facial redness to some extent and thus, evening my skin tone.

2. Grapeseed oil as a facial moisturiser - this oil suits my sensitive and oily skin as it is light. It moisturises well and helps even my skin tone. I also use it as an eye serum.

3. Mac studio fix powder - This is both a powder and foundation. It provides a decent coverage and is perfect for my oily skin.

4. Rosewater- it smells gorgeous and works as a great toner!


5. My fav. face mask is plain yogurt.

6. My 2 fav. perfumes are Sung by Alfred Sung and Green Tea by Elizabeth Arden.

7. I love satsuma and moringa body butters from The Body Shop- they moisturise well and smell heavenly!
