When I first read about this product I thought it was a dream come true. I hate the feel of almost all sunscreens on my skin and sunscreen on my face is even worse. But since sunscreen is a must in order to keep my skin healthy the last few years I put up with the stickiness, greasiness and messiness. Iīve used this sunscreen for about two month now and I don't want to live without it anymore. First I used it without any other sunscreen underneath but I feel like in the summer it is better to wear it over something else. So far I didn't get any sunburns and it is very easy to apply and reapply during the day. I also really like the finish it leaves on my skin. It is mattifies the skin while making it still look skin-like (I hope you get what I'm trying to say). So far I didn't have problems with breakouts from this. I do have oily and acne prone skin. The downside to this product is the price (~ 30) and availability here in Europe. Lately I used this in combination with the Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Facial Moisturizer - SPF 30 and it works great for me.

Okay, the smell is strong and maybe not for everyone. But I kinda like it. The fragrance is hard to describe. Definitely sweet. You should check it out before buying. The lotion itself is a good moisturizer. Leaves my skin very smooth and feeling great! I will buy this again because I like the smell and my skin feels nice and moisturized.

Love it! I like the packaging, the smell, the feeling on my lips after applying... overall a great product. I didnīt try it in really cold weather, but it worked for me even when temperatures were around 30°F/ 0°C. Maybe not everyone will love the smell but I do. Of course the packaging is not super convenient but itīs fun and unusual, in a good way :)
Moisturizers -Origins - Starting Over (with Mimosa)

I have the oil-free version. I would describe my skin as combination skin. I used to have acne and some products tend to break me out. So usually I stick to my skin care routine. I tried this anyway and I have to say so far I really love it! I use the starting over for over a month am and pm and I had no problems with breakouts. It seems like it smoothes out fine lines. The overall appearance of my skin is better since I started using this. It moisturizes very well and most of it sinks into the skin quickly. For winter itīs perfect for me. Might be to heavy for summer. We will see. I will buy it again because I love the way my skin looks and feels with it plus no breakouts!
Treatments -Dr. Hauschka - Neem Oil Nail Care Stick

I love this product!!!! I use it for my cuticles and around the nails. This is and always was kind of a "problem area" on my hands. What I like most is that this Nail Care Stick is that it is very convenient to use. It dispenses just enough product and you just have product on places that you put it! Not on the fingertips and stuff since this comes in a pen. I really hate when you put on handlotion and you have to be careful not to get grease everywhere. I carry this around in my purse all the time! Have been using it for a couple of month now and I didnīt have to refill or change the tip so far. I will definitively buy this again!
I use this for 3 weeks now and in the beginning I was not sure if I like or hate this mascara. But after using it a while now I have to say I donīt like it that much. It isnīt the worsed mascara but it doesnīt give the results I expect from a mascara. I use mascara for more than ten years now and Iīm still on the quest for the perfect mascara. And this one is not among the ones I like. I want a mascara that gives volume without making the lashes stick together and this one just works well in one out of may times I use it. Most of the time my lashes stick together. It does give a little bit of length but I have long lashes anyway. I love the wand because I like wands that have a lot of bristles so you can really brush the lashes. I guess the problem for me is the formula...
I have to say I really like this product! This is the first top coat I use on a regular basis. Before I never really used top coats so I canīt compare this to any other product. I agree that it doesnīt make the color extremely long lasting, but before my nails start chipping with this top coat I get about 5 days of perfect nails. Thatīs not to bad I think! And after that it doesnīt chip of completely. It starts chipping just a bit for example on the index finger and thumb. And thats totally normal with any nail polish I think. What I absolutely love is that I can put on a base coat, two coats of color and than the top coat (with the color still wet!) and it dries completely in about 15 minutes! So this absolutely revolutionized the way I paint my nails. It also gives the nails a very nice shine which I love. So all in all I think this is a very good top coat!!! I will definitively repurchase the top coat!
