Alaur Ultra Lite Oil Free Moisturizer

From the look and feel of this moisturizer, I'd never have known that it was oil-free. It's so creamy, sort of like whipped cream. LOL. Seriously, it's nice. So, if you are looking for an oil-free moisturizer try this one. I've used it many times on clients going on photo-shoots as the moisturizer under the makeup. It's a great base and it gave all day, under the lights lasting power.

Alaur AHA Cream

This word AHA gets thrown around a lot these days. I think AHA, I'm thinking exfoliating, aggressive…. So, what's up with this cream? It's a cream to gently exfoliate and gently remove surface dead skin cells. It's designed for skin that is very sensitive or very dry or post laser treatments. And, it's good.

Alaur Optimum Eye Cream

Another eye cream….! Are they really different from each other? I find so many to be just so ordinary. Is this one really very different? Well, it did make me stop looking so tired and dry. The skin around my eyes was getting crepe-like. So, I started using this cream and if moisturizer like the others when I put it on, but better than that, the next day I still looked smoothed out. So, this one has some cumulative effects. The more I used it, the more the look continued – soft and smooth under my eyes.

Alaur Deep Cleansing Cream

You notice how Alaur doesn't call this a facial scrub? Cause “scrub” sounds a bit harsh, right? And, this “scrub” is NOT harsh. But, I call it a scrub because it has those tiny little particles mixed into this delicious, creamy cleanser that after you use it, your skin is brighter, smoother, and silkier. But, knowing the Alaur products, you may have surmised that this is a “scrub” for us girls with the most sensitive of skin, or very dry, or even post laser treatments.

Sue Devitt Balanced Sheer Lipstick

Not all “sheer” lipsticks are created equal. Every brand that has a “sheer” lipstick has a bit of a difference. I’d say that Sue Devitt’s Balanced Sheer Lipstick is good for the woman who wants just a flash of color in a neutral shade, but wants it to stay on her lips and not just slide off. Know what I mean? Sometimes sheer is so sheer that it just slides right off. Sue’s sheer is nice, moist and hangs in there. Love her colors: Antibes: a bit pinkish, Hollywood: like a sheer strawberry, Verbier: a bit plum-like and Ville France: a pale rose. All good nudes!!

Sue Devitt Camouflage Concealers

There’s an ingredient in Sue Devitt’s Camouflage Concealers called Nylon12. Nylon 12 is the ingredient which puts the spring and stretch into panty hose also puts the resiliency into this concealer. So, here’s what I mean. This concealer actually moves around when your face moves. So, it’s less likely to create and it’s also water-resistant, so it stays put, yet it moves with your facial expression. You just have to try this concealer. It’s also really terrific to use as a spot treatment. BTW, Sue’s colors of her concealers have the same names as the colors to her foundations, so you are sure to have a perfect match.
