I bought this product awhile back and it is still half full in my cabinet. The product does work; good oil absorber for those who normally have oily scalp and have to wash their hair everyday. However, I have dark brown hair and I have to be careful to blend the powder in well or else the powder will make my hair appear grey and "dusty." Also, I have to becareful when distributing the product evenly onto the scalp. I have to shake it out slowly or else I will have spots in areas where I would have a glob of powder and just "sprinkles" in others.

Short and sweet: Simply put; foundation goes on smooth and glides on the skin easily, buildable coverage without caking (can be used any season), colors easily blend into any skin tone, keeps my skin balanced (not overly drying, not too moisturizing; I have combination skin with oily T-zone), and total UVA/UVB protection...oh, and did I mention....great staying power!

GREAT FACE SCRUB! I have sensitive skin and in the summer with all the heat/humidity/pollution in Houston, it's necessary to use a face scrub at least once a week to get rid of all the grime and clean out the pores! Immediate Smooth does the job without stripping/irritating my skin leaving it just as it promises...smooth skin immediately upon rinsing. My face feels cleaner with no oily residue and my makeup also goes on better. No fragrance to worry about. Definitely recommend this product! Worth every penny.
Treatments (Eye) -Prescriptives - All You Need + For Eyes

I just purchased this product and have been using it every morning with my face moisturizer and every night for the last three weeks. I have always loved PX SuperLine Preventor Eye because it reduced my under eye circles over time and it's consistency; the gel which glides on easily without having to use too much product. I find that All You Need + For Eyes is similar so far. Did not give all 5 lippies because not sure how well it works to prevent or reduce lines/wrinkles yet since I have only been using it for three weeks. Bonus: Allows undereye concealer to go on and sit smoother without caking all day long! Of course the Extra Bonus as with all PX products: no fragrance or harsh chemicals to worry about! Overall great eye cream.
I have "asian hair" lot's of it but tends to get flat on the top easily from product build up making it look oily and/or dirty. I have tried other clarifying shampoos in the past including UltraSwim (great for removing chlorine) and Neutrogena Clarifying Shampoo (which I loved but tends to be too drying if used regularly; leaves my hair 'too" squeky). I have to say that Nexxus Aloe Rid is surprisingly gentle and the big plus is that it removes buildup leaving my hair feeling lighter immediately upon rinsing, definitely cleaner without drying effects even on the scalp. I also found that my usual styling products worked better after using Aloe Rid.
I love, love, love this eyeliner!!! Two thumbs up on it's staying power. The color glides on smoothly, easily and quite true with no smudging. The tip is soft and has a good point to it for easy application. I wish Almay will come up with more colors in this product; I will be sure to stock up. Have been using this eyeliner for awhile now and will continue to use it for many many years to come.
This toner burned my skin and made my eyes water. I have combination skin and it's suppose to clean off any residue left over from my cleanser as well as balance out my skin over repeated use. The packaging says you will know if the toner is working if you feel a tingling sensation. I did feel the tingle each time I used it only to find out that it's because it was sucking out moisture from my skin. This toner left my skin extremely dry and flaky. I've only used this toner a total of three times and had to return it.
Arden's Eight Hour Cream is great! I made the mistake by using Clinique's overly drying clarifying toner #2 and it stripped all the moisture AND skin off my face. A friend recommended this product to me and I tried it...a little went a long way. The smell was a little overpowering upon application but quickly dissipates. The peeling, redness and iritation was gone in two days with this cream. The price is in midrange and not bad for all its uses. Highly recommend to try (get it when Arden has a GWP as bonus!)They have great gifts!!!
This foundation is great. It has a medium to full coverage but does not feel heavy or cakey at all. I have undereye circles with some blotchiness and this product gives me a completely flawless complexion and I get compliments all the time on how natural it looks! It has SPF 15 in it which is a plus. My skin is pretty sensitive and I haven't had any bad reactions. It is long lasting and a little goes a long way! All I need is a q-tip worth for my face and it blends easily. Then touch up with just a dust of loose powder to set it. Not bad for the price. Recommended for women on the go with no time to touch up!
