I thought I'd start a new thread, seems we all get so excited about certain products then move on. So I thought it would be fun to see what everyone still likes...

heres my list:

JM lash intervention..fab..flutters lashes
Baby Q ...got lost and stopped using but def plan on restarting
ISC Clinical still really like these products but down to using Active, eyecream was just ok, firming complex, I like but not as a moisturiser
Candessence DMAE ..fab
Homemade creams..havent found one I love otherwise yet
Skin Actives eye cream...just started, will review later
Candessence HA..not a huge HA girl but def sinks in and plumps skin
Candessence VitC, E..very good, very potent
Remergent Barrier Repair..wonderful cream when ur face just needs that something

fixing to try
1000 hour lash tint...this weekend wish me luck
and I'll review once I am done.

Products I´ve used for over 6 months:

*1000 hour lash tint
*Rosehip seed oil mixed with tea tree or lavender essential oil
*Orange blossom hydrosol
*Terressentials hair wash in cool mint and body washes in sool mint or citrus
*PitRok crystal deodorant
*Pure, unrefined shea butter that I mix with a bit of tamanu or other oil, and add a coctail of EOs as a moisturiser when needed
*My number 1 tip: dry body brushing. I never need body lotion and my skin is glowing (but I use my whipped shea occationly on elbows and the like.)

Sharkbait, you are RIGHT about body brushing! I don't apply lotion at all except for my DDF Glycolic but that's for specific areas only! Speaking of which, it does make my list:

-Baby Quasar
-Clarisonic brush
-OxyLight
-Ultra Emu Oil and HA
-Skin Biology's CPs
-Professional Solutions BHA
-PSF Cranberry Eye Lift
-DDF 12.5% Body Lotion
-Jan Marini Age Intervention Eyelash
-1000 Hour lash tint
-Tarte eyelash curler
-Panasonic heated lash curler
-Ice Elements: Refining cleanser, soufflé, acne serum, Edelweiss serum, AA serum and 2MM
-Epidermix II
-Professional Solutions 25% Vitamin C & Triple C
-DMAE 4% though I will move up to Candy's 6% when this runs out
-PSF O2 and Zenbiotics Oxygen Replenish
-Professional Solutions 35% Fruit Acid Peel
-UGloGirl MMU - just started using this but it's my new HG foundation!

I'm still testing some stuff out so haven't added them to my must-have list. However, I've stumbled on some goodies lately so they will be sure to make the grade at some point.

OMG scala, ur nuts (but love ur reviews)!!! Here I am trying to simplify and get down to just antiaging in its simple form Laughing !! I started this and hope more chime in for the very reason, I find I am reading some threads then look at the dates and the raves were ohhhh a yr ago, and we all know how we can love something then poof its not working. Then again we can still be using it!! So if one is listing it, I'll assume its still working for you..

LOL! I know it sure looks that way, huh? I thought the same thing when I was completing the list AND it doesn't include my makeup preference other than the UGG MMU! Also, if you think about it in terms of "areas", I get some list shrinkage for the eye lash products, as well. Ha! Justification at its best!!! I do love these products and should note that I do not use every one every day; hopefully, that should put your mind at rest. Smile Here is a logically organized list - does that make it less nuts?

BEAUTY TOOLS
-Baby Quasar
-Clarisonic brush
-OxyLight

SKIN CARE
-Ultra Emu Oil and HA
-Skin Biology's CPs
-Professional Solutions BHA
-PSF Cranberry Eye Lift
-Ice Elements: Refining cleanser, soufflé, acne serum, Edelweiss serum, AA serum and 2MM
-Epidermix II
-Professional Solutions 25% Vitamin C & Triple C
-DMAE 4% though I will move up to Candy's 6% when this runs out
-PSF O2 and Zenbiotics Oxygen Replenish
-Professional Solutions 35% Fruit Acid Peel

BODY CARE
-DDF 12.5% Body Lotion

DRAG QUEEN EYELASHES
-Jan Marini Age Intervention Eyelash
-1000 Hour lash tint
-Tarte eyelash curler
-Panasonic heated lash curler

MAKEUP
-UGloGirl MMU - just started using this but it's my new HG foundation!

The thing is, though, that we have so many stupid body parts! I, for one, can't get by using the same products all over. Bad Grin The good thing is that I don't recommend things lightly (well, I'm still mad at myself about the Zenbiotics cleanser but do like most of their other products) AND glad you like my reviews so far!!!

I still use a LOT of the products reviewed on EDS (see the "What would you repurchase" thread), but my favorite of them all, the mother of all products to me, is IS Clinical Active Serum. I thank my lucky stars and Katee for first reviewing this. I couldn't be happier with one skincare product (and i've tried a few good ones).

Well I'm pretty faithful to a line when I fall in love with it so even after years I am still using the following lines:

Dr Hauschka - Skin care and cosmetics - My all time favourite line! (Will need to include some bath and body products in the future Wink)
Primavera - Skin Care, Body Care, Oils (Was using this line for quite a few years as well and if EDS ever brought this over I'd repurchase. It just got too pricey over at Saffron Rouge.)
Druide - Love their body washes, especially the Goat's Milk and Almond one, and the shampoos too (conditioners suck unfortuantely)
Weleda - Love the Everon Lip Balm and the toothpastes
Aubrey Organics - Skin and Hair Care - I haven't bought anything from this line for a while as I didn't have a need to but I liked a few of their products so would definitely repurchase when the need arises once again.
Desert Essence - Great inexpensive lip balms and I am really liking the Green Apple and Ginger Conditioner I bought a few weeks ago and will definitely repurchase. (So glad they finally brought this to my health food store.)
Jane Iredale - I've only been using the makeup and brushes for a few months but I'll definitely continue to buy more and repurchase from this line.

Not much of a change for me at all...

I upgraded to a Quasar from my BQ

IS Clinical Active Serum
IS Clinical Firming Complex
Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0 around my eyes
Katee's Eye Serum

IS Clinical SuperSerum
Candy's Triple C
[DMAE here and there when I remember OR when I need it Wink }
Remergent Microcirc.
SAS Bright I Cream
ISC HydraCool

I've been making my own scrumptious emulsified sugar and salt scrubs and a truly luxurious body lotion/mousse/souffle with all kinds of goodies in it.

I don't wear make up, so I can take a little extra time slathering myself with this stuff....I love it!

ohhhhhh and I do continue to use the 1000 hours eyelash tint, but that's not all that often

Yep, still using it and I feel it's doing a nice job along with my products. Smile The only machine I really do not use much is my Oxylight and that's due to my primary use of it as a zit zapper. I haven't broken out much except for a few hormonal spots this month so haven't used it much.

Re: the Nuface in the thread, someone posted about Dr. Perricone's findings of DMAE applied after using a similar device and really producing noticeable results. This is how I've used it from the beginning so perhaps that is why mine are so positive.

Yeah, I read that one too - definitely worth a try, DMAE serums can be really inexpensive and so worth it to get results like you've had! I'm loving my BQ and am still wavering as to whether to add in the NuFace but I'm sure I'll be giving in soon Laughing.

I've used Osea's products consistently since, hmm, let's see, 1995, or was it 1996? I cannot even remember that far back anymore. Anyways, I was very young and now I am ...aging, so it has been a while. I've strayed a couple of times (like when a friend bought me cellcosmet eye cream, or when I got a ton of epicuren for free), and I always go back and am amazed how much my skin loves and misses these products!

My absolute staples are:

Osea cleansing milk
Osea Advanced Protection Cream
Osea White Algae Mask
Osea Eyes and Lips
Osea Hydrating oil
Osea Corrective Oil for blemishes

Desert Essence Tea Tree Deodorant (I buy a new one once every two years?)
Dr. Bronner's Lavender Castille Soap (another 10+year product)
Phytojoba shampoo (been using this for years and it smells so lovely, mostly all natural, great for summer!)
Vadamecum verbena toothpaste (amazingly fresh scent!)
and lastly,
Comptoir sud pacifique's Motu scent (no longer made Sad but is so gorgeous and does not smell like perfume at all)

and if I could I'd use Osea's Ocean Lotion all over my body every day for the rest of my life--truly a miracle product, but my student budget does not let me buy it in bulk at the moment

Katee,
What is Quasar? I am clueless
What actives do you put in your body souffle? Do you mind sharing your formula? Do you also DIY shea butter products?
Thanks,
Wild Cat
