- OSCAR BLANDI Jasmine Oil Serum
- BOSCIA Purifying Cleansing Gel
- DDF Amplifying Elixir
- MURAD Hybrids Skin-Perfecting Primer (for acne and shine control)
- BY TERRY Creme de Rose
I haven't used the Murad or the Oscar Blandi products yet. My skin is (thankfully) not acne-prone or shiny right now, so I will be giving the Murad to a girlfriend to try, and the hair oil I will be trying in conjunction with other similar products at another time. The goodies I have been loving are the rest!

The cream has a mild rose scent (which I normally can't stand that smell but this is soft and dissipates quickly,) and is thick and rich without being greasy. It says it is for firming, moisturizing and plumping, though I didn't notice any firming or plumping. It made my skin feel soft and comfortable which is really what I want at night. I will use the rest of the tube, but I'm not sure it is a must for repurchase at this point.

The first time I used it without reading the directions. Never a good plan, but I managed to put it on after cleansing and before moisturizing all the same. Based on the sample's packaging I didn't expect it to come out so watery, so I used way too much the first time. I thought it would have a more serum-like texture so I found it a little harder to control the application. I didn't notice a huge difference in my moisture barrier.
The second (and last) time I used it my skin felt stung for a little while, which I never enjoy. The other products in my lineup were exactly the same as before, so I don't know if it meant it was working or not. I want to try it again consistently to see if I do see an overall change in my skin. This sample size is 0.5 oz and should last for at least a week to be able to see promised results. The jury is still out, though I really want this to work for me!
