Moisturizers -Beauty Without Cruelty - maximum moisture cream
Treasa 12/24/2012 12:28:00 PM
This did not work for me. Overall I liked this but within minutes of applying to my face I felt and looked like I was on fire. Two days later my eyes are still puffy and swollen. So definitely something in this that I am allergic to
I ordered some of the samples with reservation. I was concerned that the jojoba might cause a skin reaction but surprisingly it caused no irritation. It is a beautiful base and looks flawless but way too dark. It does require alot of building to get coverage, it is very difficult to remove when too much applied The only problem I have is that it is VERY VERY DARK. The lightest colour is more of a bronze. Hopefully they will come out with lighter colours. I might buy one of the colours to use as a bronzer but overall I would not buy this for everyday use--just too dark UPDATE:i got samples of all the jojoba base colours thinking that my skin tone must be in here someplace but it was not to be--this base is only for darker skinned people so I will not be purchasing All the bases look like they should have had terracotta added to their names(SO DARK) Again I feel very let down by this company, they got rid of the intensive line and this line does not even come close to delivering for fair skinned people---Everyday minerals used to be good-my holy grail- but now are coming up terribly short. Addendum:broke out using this as a bronzer, my face is a mess--what a nightmare!!!!!!. Have stopped using ALL EVERYDAY MINERALS products
Powder -Everyday Minerals - Foundation Matte Formula
Treasa 11/21/2012 12:16:00 AM
So disappointed in this company. They discontinued the intensive formula and now I am forced to trawl through all their bases to see if I can maybe find a base that works for me. The matte base was horrible, I ended up with nothing more than that awful caked look. I had horrible break outs and clogged pores, not nice tohave ended up with skin eruptions which I have not had in years. I have very fine skin and the base that this company decided to get rid of always looked wonderful on me-i was always getting compliments. Since I have started to try this other bases I have been asked if I am alright!!! Definitely not something I would buy.
Powder -Everyday Minerals - foundation semi-matte formula
Treasa 11/21/2012 12:03:00 AM
I am so disappointed in this company. I was a loyal customer for years and was devastated to see that they had discontinued the intensive formulas that I loved. Customer service were nice but were not able to offer any meaningful advice on what I could purchase to replace the formula that I used. In the last few months I have tried dozens of samples of different bases including the semi matte and they all have been so disappointing. The semi matte coverage is awful--its impossible to find a match for my skin tone and it just builds up to a caked look when I apply to get any sort of coverage. I have had friends ask me if I am alright. I look horrible with this semi matte stuff. I am so disappointed with whoever in this company made the decision to discontinue mineral makeup that was so good. Additionally I broke out, horrible blotches and small sores on my face-----not a good product for me. Definitely would not purchase. I have stated to try the Jojoba which is wonderful. The only problem is that it is very dark so hopefully this company will bring out lighter colours
Gels/Soaps -Unlisted Brand - Dr. Woods Pure Black Soap
Treasa 9/13/2011 10:33:00 AM
Bought this with the shea butter on a recommendation from a friend and I was ready to try something new as my cerave was just a little too drying. This is really nice and best of all no allergic reaction and if you read my other reviews you will know that I get horrible eczema from most products. I was skeptical thinking it would be harsh like Dr Brommers but NO it is gentle and just very kind to my aging skin. I love the smell---it just smells clean---I know some others didnt care for the smell but for me the chemicals that are in most products give me a headache and make me nauseated. Not Dr Woods. I bought the 32 oz bottle but use that as my stock bottle and just pour into a smaller bottle as i need it.

Bought this because I like their product line, it had great reviews here on makeupalley and miracle of miracles its as good as the clean slate shampoo that I have been using. This one I have been using for about 2 months. Great shampoo-no allergies to any of the sexy hair concept. Non drying, non irritating, no build up, cleans well, great for daily use. JUST A GREAT SHAMPOO. Got it at TJ Max for $5.99. This line is the best----looove it

Started using this shampoo about 2-3 weeks ago and like it so far. Smells so clean and fresh. My hair feels and looks hydrated. I have had complements on how good my hi/lo lights look. I have had no allergy problems. My scalp is 90% less dry so i will continue to use. Update:this is a miracle shampoo for me. I have been using for about two months and no allergic reaction. I love it. I am on my second bottle and hubby using it as well. Had another compliment at work yesterday about how great my hair looks.
This is the best cleanser I have tried. I use it for everything including washing my hair. It causes no irritation, does a great job removing makeup. Brilliant. Would recommend this in a heartbeat. Got it at Walgreens for about $13. Comes with a pump dispenser. It you have allergy prone skin then you should try this one. WOW-Update-this is AWESOME. I use it exclusively. This is incredible and I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE WITH DRY< IRRITATED ALLERGY PRONE SKIN
I love this cream and use it daily as a body moisturizer. It is just a plain old good cream that keeps my dry skin moisturized. Update;Wow his cream is just the best on the market and works like a charm. Highly recommend!!!!!!
Bottom line is that this works. It is by far the better of all lotions that I have used to date. I have had no sensitivity to this lotion, it has caused no allergy breakouts, I use it on my face and no problem. It has a nice texture and drys quickly. Update:Have used this all winter and IT IS TRULY THE BEST ON THE MARKET
Love this. I have dry, allergic, sensitive, easily irritated, eczema prone skin and this cream has left me speechless. It is incredible- It has worked better than any other cream I have ever tried even all those recommended by my dermatologists. I am not allergic to it -that is nothing short of a miracle. I would recommend this in a heartbeat. Its fabulous cream and it softens my skin like no other. BUY IT at Walgreens

Too small. I didnt like it because of the size and never use it. It is very soft.
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - Whole Foods 365 Citrus Grapefruit

Did nothing for my hair. I used it for one day and that was plenty. Hair felt greasy, hair looked greasy, weighed my hair down. My hair looked FLAT and UNWASHED.
My dermatologist recommended this and I Love this. It is a heavy duty moisturizer for those of us who have allergies, skin sensitivities or an impaired skin barrier. I get it at the pharmacy, the pharmacist will special order it if they don't have it in stock, its usually behind the counter. You will need to ask for it. I use it on my face in addition to being an overall body cream. It is very thick but an awesome cream and does not block pores if that is a worry. LOVE IT and HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - DHS Conditioning Rinse With Panthenol

I tried this but was very disappointed. It really does nothing. I used it in conjunction with the DHS clear shampoo and it was no good. I wouldn't recommend it.
