I really like this stuff! It makes my skin look so even after I use it. The price isn't so bad compared to other brands that do the same thing. Just don't do what I did the first time I used it. The girl at the store said to use clear improvement before modern friction because clear improvement brings everything out and modern friction will wash it all away. Boy did that burn!!! And it's also no joke if you get even a little in your eyes!
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

I really wanted to like this since I'm such a big fan of the purity made simple cleanser. I mainly don't like the smell of this stuff! I don't think there's anything special to this moisturizer. My skin doesn't look any better or any worse using this. It feels too greasy on my skin also. Would not recommend this but then again everyone's skin is different.
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

I love this cleanser!! I refuse to use anything else. Every other cleanser that I have used made me feel as though my skin wasn't clean enough so I had to use a toner and the cotton ball was dirty. This stuff makes my skin feel super clean that I don't even need to use a toner. Just like they say. Some say this has an unpleasant smell...but I don't think this smells at all.
Treatments -Ole Henriksen - roll on blemish attack

I've been using this every night since I bought it. It really does work but the areas I've used it has gotten dry and flaky. I also wish the packaging was different. I can't get any product from the roll-on. I have to remove it to get some product. I will most likely try something else next time I'm in the store. Something a little less harsh.

My skin is super oily and I've used pencil liners all along. By the end of the day or night I looked like a racoon! These liners stayed put. I will never go back to pencil liners again!

This stuff works but the smell lingers even after you take it off. There's stuff out there that does the same thing at half the cost and without the nasty smell.
Primer/ Corrector -Philosophy - the supernatural poreless flawless spf 15
Michellejim 6/11/2007 10:41:00 PM
I got samples of the tinted supernatural and I really like the way it evens my skin tone. I don't even have to put makeup on. The downside...after a few hours it feels pretty heavy on my skin and it doesn't look nice! I'm not sure if I'll buy the real thing.
Primer/ Corrector -Clarins - Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch

I have oily skin with large pores around my nose. I really wanted this stuff to work but I was dissapointed. I like others tried this every which way on my face and it didn't do anything. As a matter of fact, when I put my mineral makeup on, I could tell where I put this stuff on bc it was a different color than the rest of my face. Would not re-buy!
Styling Products -Bumble & Bumble - Curl Conscious Calming Creme

Love this stuff! I like to consider my hair as having multiple personalities....it doesn't know whether it wants to be wavy, curly, or straight. When I want to go curly I use this stuff and it leaves my hair looking good! I have to drive way across town to get this stuff but well worth it.
Hair -Wen by Chaz Dean - Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner
Michellejim 2/23/2007 3:07:00 PM
I like the way this conditioner leaves my hair right out of the shower but that's about it. It doesn't give me any amazing or fantastic results. As a matter of fact, my hair looks just as if I used my regular shampoo and conditioner. It's way to expensive for the results it gave me. I will def not repurchase.
Primer/ Corrector -Clinique - Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector
Michellejim 2/23/2007 2:52:00 PM
I have extremely oily skin. No matter what time of day or season, my skin is oily. This stuff controls the oil all day long! It does what it says...minimizes pores. I just wish it came in a larger bottle.
