Sunscreen -Biotherm - face multi-pretection sun cream SPF 50

Reading that this product is a light, oil-free formula with anti-aging properties, I decided to try it. I tend to have a problem with sunscreens looking greasy on my skin so the oil-free, light-feeling claim caught my attention and tempted me to purchase it. Well, I guess oil-free and "shine-free" do not necessarily mean the same thing. I was shocked when I put this cream on my face and then looked in the mirror to see an oil-slicked, very shiny face looking back at me! I couldn't believe the amount of shine on my face! The feeling to the touch, on my face was tacky and sticky....not comfortable to wear! I couldn't bear to go out in public looking like I just climed out of an oil well. I tried it two days with the same results. So, back to the store it went with extreme disappointment on my part! Sadly, I do not recommend this product with anyone who has the least bit of 'oil-shine' issues to deal with on their face.
Misc Beauty Tools -Quo - Quo - Single Pencil Sharpener

I have the dual sharpener for both wide and regular pencils. I generally don't use wide pencils so will comment on the single pencil size. I don't know what is wrong with it but I am wasting my pencil away trying to get a tip on it before it breaks off. At the price of the pencils, I'm not too happy. I have already shaved half of my pencil just trying to get a tip on it before it breaks off. I will just go out and buy another brand of pencil sharpener because this is ridiculous considering what we pay for a quality makeup pencil.
The shade I selected (Beech) worked well for me; however, I could not get this foundation to blend into my skin. It kept pilling on my skin. The more I tried to blend it, the more my skin pilled up. I had all these tiny skin flakes all over my face. I ended up having to wipe my face completely clean and go without the foundation. I have tried three consecutive days to apply this stuff in various different ways and could not get it to lay smoothly on my skin, so I returned it to the store. Of course, the sales rep. tried to tell me it was my moisturizer, the brush I was using, my application method, etc... (ah, I don't think so!)
