Wow, I am a little surprised that I tried this...because it's so pricey and you don't get a whole lot. But...I really wanted a powder foundation and I rememberd that my x-sister in law wore this and I always thought her skin looked really good. Though, she has nearly perfect skin, and I do not. Anyway, I really like it...it's matte and gives a lovely finish. It feels like I have nothing on my skin. I have red acne marks and it covers them pretty well. It's more of a light to medium coverage foundation though, perfect for summer. So far it hasn't broke me out (only been 4 days though, so hopefully it won't). Only downside...$35!! That is more than I have ever spent on foundation!!
Well, I think it may be too soon to tell yet. I've only used it for 3 nights. It hasn't worked miracles yet, but my skin does appear a little nicer when I wake up and it provides good moisture and no oillies. I'll update this after a few weeks of use. It was $25.00 so not terribly expensive but more than I usually pay for things. So...hopefully over time this cream will help my yucky looking skin. EDIT: 2 weeks later and I really love this stuff, it has really made my skin look better.=Seems to have really helped clear up my skin. If it keeps working like this, I will def repurchase!

Love, love this color. And I didn't think I would. You ladies have really helped me find the best stuff lately. Best thing, I got BOGO from KMart so I got this and Shine that Pink. So happy with both colors.

Wow- I just love you MUA ladies. I would have NEVER purchased this blush on my own. Not only because it's WnW cuz I just never loo at their stuff, but also because of the color...looks too bright. BUT...after reading the reviews then seeing it at KMart while I was getting some more of my favorite lipgoss from revlon (Super Lustrous-another MUA find) I wandered over there just to look at saw it. Decided to grab it, what the heck, it was only $3.00. Well, I love it. It's such a pretty, glowy color. Thanks ladies!!!!!!!
Crème -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Cream Foundation [DISCONTINUED]
Peaches27 3/25/2007 2:56:00 PM
Well, I am glad I read the reviews for this foundation! I was in search of something new but have been leary to make the switch. I have mild acne so I needed something that wouldn't cause breakouts and that would cover my red spots. I was also looking for something that had the appearance of a sheer foundation, but covered well. I loved that dewey, (but not shiney) look celebs are always sporting. So far, I love this stuff. It's a little thick, but not cakey at all...adds a nice dewy finish and coveres pretty well. I just starting using a few days ago, so lets hope it won't cause any breakouts cuz I love this stuff. And of course the pump is awesome! Who knew...I would have never tried this on my own. Thanks MUA ladies!!

Well, Alpha Hydrox has done it again. I've been using the Enhanced Creme for a few years now and I like it alot. Well, after reading all of these wonderful reviews I decided to give in a try. EDIT- back to the Enhanced Cream, easier on my skin.
Liquid -American Beauty - Perfectly Even Natural Finish Foundation

I like this foundation. I was looking for something to replace my beloved Skin Stays Clean that Almay so nicely discoed. Yes, I'm bitter. Anyway, I think I picked a color a little light for me...but it covers well, leaves and nice glow and doesn't seem to break me out. I do find that I need to realy make sure that I blend it well so that I don't get foundation lines from it. Not the best foundation I'm sure...but for my acne prone skin it does pretty good.
Treatments -Stridex - Benzoyl Peroxide - Power Pads
Peaches27 11/12/2005 6:07:00 AM
I have been using these for about 2 months now with good success, I really like it. This coupled with my Neutrogena Cleanser/Mask and 10% AHA my skin has never been better. Only complaint is how large the pads are, they need only be half the size they are.
Uh, I finally ordered this tuff off he Interenet. I used it a long atime ago, beofre I got pregnant but stopped because of the pregnancy then realized they were no longer stocking it in the local drug stores. So, again I love this product. It really helps with Neutrogena Clear Pore Mask Cleanser and as Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner. I love this stuff. I bought two jars to keep me stocked up for a while.
Well, I usually don't buy this sort fo st uff for frear is will break me out. But after seeing the rave reviews and knowing that I normally get good results from BP I decided to try it. I think this has really helped to control my breakouts. I've been using Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner as well and then using my Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Cream and my face has been looking much better. Great product.
This is my HG foundation. Doesn't cause breakouts on my acne prone skin. Colors are good as well as the coverage it provides. I love SSC!!
