I love reviews of beauty product and have always been a fan of such things as the Glammys.

So I am inspired to regularly review stuff. Let's start with facial moisturizers since my face is always dry:

Philosophy Hope in a jar-
L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Cream -
Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer-
Nivea Visage Glowing Moisturizer-

Ok the winner is...L'Occitane. It is simply moisturizing, not a lot of fragrance.

Second is Kiehl's, with Philosophy as a close 3rd. Philosophy Hope isn't worth the $30 price, though I love the smell, but it bothers my skin under my eye. It is supposed to be AMAZING, and it just isn't. The Kiehl's isn't worth it either--if you want to splurge, use the L'Occitane.

I don't think they make the Nivea anymore, but it was great for it's under $10 price. I can't use their other products because of the AHA or the fruit acid or whatever they put in it to "Safely exfoiliate". More like "Burn like hell" for me.
I invite you to PLEASE add your own recommendations for this review or any future reviews!

Oohhh I've never tried L'Occitane. Thanks for the info. I'm always in the market for face moisturizer. Currently I use La Prairie. I especially love the SPF content and how soft my face feels afterwards. =)
