I know my last review was also an Avene product but they are a good brand for sensitive skin which deserves mention.
Avenes Skin recovery moisturizer is great but on the pricey side. I would love to be able to use this every day but it would get too expensive. If I do use it, it is for when my skin really needs it.
The light texture is wonderful. The cream absorbs into the skin almost instantly leaving it full of moisture and soothed. The only problem I have with it is that I tend to use quite a bit of it, so in terms of mileage this isn’t the best product out there. Keeping that in mind it is great …

This is my dry winter and skin emergency must-have. I always use this in the dry winter months or when I have a skin mishap such as sun burn, redness or dry, cracked skin. I usually put in on over night and sometimes apply it really thickly as a mask, cottoning off any excess cream after 30 minutes or so. Avene’s cold cream really is a bit of a cure all, I carry a small tube around in my purse if I have a persistent rash or patch of scaly dry skin. I would recommend this for any person who has had issues with skin sensitivity. If your skin reacts easily to some products it won’ with this, it seems …

Chanel mat lumiere foundation is very much like its counterpart, pro lumiere with the exception of… you guessed it… it’s matt. I would say that this is not the best matt foundation out their if you have very oily skin. I have moderately oily skin around my t-zone with dry cheeks and this foundation can start to look a little greasy in around the nose after a few hours. If you have perfectly normal skin however this product is great. Even so I think this foundation would suit most skin types, just not the extremely oily kind. I have sensitive skin and have had no problems with it at all. Make sure you get the right color for your …

This is a good light weight foundation that provides medium coverage. It goes on like silk and gives the skin a really nice silky sheen. The lasting power is not strong however, and the perfect satin finish doesn’t last to long past the application. It is not so much a gloss or a matt foundation but lies somewhere in the middle. I’ve heard that this is a foundation of choice for some photographers as the luminescent quality tends to show up nicely in pictures giving the skin a nice healthy glow. I’d agree with this however wearing it does make you look like you’re wearing make up, it’s not as natural a look as It could be. Wearing this …

This is a beautiful feeling face cream from the french skin care company Nuxe. It sinks into the skin and plumps it up with moisture and smells great while doing it. It is quite a thick heavy cream, but a slight amount would work well in the morning. Definitely use this as an overnight cream. It seems to completely repair dry skin overnight. I love using it when my skin is feeling tight or extra dry and I use it regularly during the winter to keep my skin healthy. A small dab is sufficient to cover face and neck, say a 2cm diameter blob. You only need a small amount so it lasts a very long time. It is on …
