Amen to the Perricone products. I used 2 of them: Evening Facial Emollient and Phosphatidyl-E. The Facial Emollient did nothing and the Phos-E was better but not necessarily worth the $$. Wish I had found EDS earlier and had the benefit of all this great input and advice. I was lost but now am found! Very Happy

I can think of so many products that just did not deliver. I have wasted SO MUCH money over the years. By far the big NO NO was Avotox! Totally made a mess of a fairly nice complextion.

anything to do with clinique is a big no-no. If only they spent as much on packaging as they did ingredients - they might even stand 1/2 a chance!

I'd like to add my vote for not wasting any money on the Perricone products. I bought tub loads of it. I thought it made my skin look worse, not better and it stank.

After that the TNS Recovery complex was my most expensive mistake ever. And that was more annoying because I read a lot about it on icompact before I bought it. I remember Sassyred was particularly ecstatic about it a few years ago. Why?

I would never use Clinique to wash my face or anything (honest), but I'm embarrassed to confess it's my preferred daily sunscreen - City Block Sheer. Is there something wrong with me Confused

I've only tried their enzyme exfoliant cream/mask and their moisturiser for "troubled skin" (or something like that) and I have had no problems with either. Which ones did you try? Have you been able to compare ingredient lists with the other products you use with no problems?

La Mer Creme De La Mer did my skin in! I wanted and expected a beautiful rosey glow and instead blackheads took up residence and invited all their friends.

I'm on the Clinique bandwagon. That stuff is so harsh and aweful, made my skin so irratated.
Ummmmmmmm Avon was never good for me either, L'Oreal was too harsh, Olay most stuff from the drugstores. Lancome & Estee Launder are also crap. I have had the most luck with spa lines & helath food store items.

I have liked all my Yonka products, Jurlique & Dr.H. I have never spent more than $80 on a product. Anything more than that is just selling false hope. There is no micrale cream so if it sounds to good to be true wnd the price tag is outrageous, then just walk away. I have a marketing degree and stuff like La Mer is really no different than most other products, they just try to play on peoples' perceptions that if it costs mor eit is better.

You need to know where to draw the line between paying for quality like Yonka or Jurlique and paying for bulls&^t.

I tried the dry skin cream, toner and DNA concentrate. Unfortunately, I only had samples with no ingredients listed. I am going to research this tho! Maybe it's the specific essential oil they use. Oh well..i'll stick with my Babor, Yonka, and Lauder.

Boo hoo!! I wish you could have told me that before I went and wasted my 50$ EDS gift cert on it! Crying or Very sad I should've gone for the Sothy's Lip stuff instead.

Perricone's "Moist Lips" (I think that's the name...) is on my no-no list -- that stuff made my lips CHAP!!!

Molly,

alot of gals love TNS, remember not one skincare line will EVER work for everyone. Wink I really loved it but the $$$$ was a bit much.

I won't every buy Perricone, OVER priced-Greedy.

Hi Sassyred
Yes, I agree one thing won't suit everyone. Sorry, my comment sounded a bit bitchy - I didn't mean to.

Hmmm ... lots of people love Yonka, and i have pretty good experience with Yonka gomma 103 (or is it 105) mask... why they are on your no-no list? any particular product from yonka or in general?
