I purchased this from my salon after trying the Phytojoba shampoo and conditioner. I LOVED the way my hair looked and felt after I used the samples, so I purchased the products. Unfortunately, they gave me the Masque instead of the conditioner and I have to tell you..... the Masque is AWFUL!!! It really must work differently on different people because I cannot imagine how anyone could give it a good review. My fine, naturally smooth hair, becomes frizzy and completely unmanageable after using this product. I've tried it several times in different ways and the result is always the same.... hair crisis!! Beware!
Toners -The Body Shop - Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz

I got this in a swap (a swap I didn't initiate; just saw it and selected it because I needed a toner). I LOVE it! I ran out and panicked and sent DH to the mall to buy a second bottle for me! I use it at night after I've washed and moisturized my face. I really don't use it as a toner as I do not remove it afterward. I let it sit on my face and soak in. My face feels and looks brilliant after I use it! I don't find it sticky at all as others have posted.
As a foundation 'freak' I find it quite enjoyable to say I love this foundation. I frequently change foundations with the season, my mood, my coloring, my event. And I have to say this holds up (and beats) most of my high end foundations.... seriously I find myself reaching for this more than my Gerda Spillman, Lancome, or Laura Mercier. The trick is in the application. It must be done quickly with a damp sponge! My face looks perfect and fresh from morning 'till night! LOVE THIS STUFF!
First off, I love the consistency, pigment and gloss of MAC's lacquers... so that alone calls for big Kudos from me. But better than that, Varneesh is just an absolutely gorgeous, neutral color. It is not too neutral in that it doesn't make me look 'dead' like a lot of neutrals do. It looks awesome over ANY shade of lipstick/liner. It just does IT for me!
