This has become my favorite under eye concealer by far. Everything I tried prior was just about the same. This concealer is a salmon color and that's what set it apart. All the others I tried were a different shade of yellow and none of them were truly effective at covering the darkness under my eyes. The consistency is perfect. It is creamy and also is a treatment for the fine lines. Use sparingly! a little goes a long way. I gave it a 4 rating because I think it is very expensive; However, considering it will take years to use it all up I guess in the end it really isn't. I highly recommend!
Wow, Seemed like I waited forever to receive this after placing my order (2 weeks actually). I was hoping this would be a cross between tinted moisturizer and liquid foundation along with the added benefit of a decent SPF. I used it once and at the end of the day when I washed my face I realized I had pimples all over my face, eww. I know that they were caused by using this bb cream because that is the only thing different I did that day. Maybe I was allergic, don't know, don't really care. I just know this is def not for me.
Sunscreen -Jason Natural Cosmetics - Jason Sunbrellas spf 30

This actually is a great sunscreen; However, it's so not worth walking around with the white film all over your body. I realize that it is a physical sunblock but no matter how hard I tried I could not get the white cast to go away. I will never use this again.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Vitamin E skincare cream
karen137972 10/30/2010 9:19:00 PM
I'm suprised no one has reviewed this skin cream. I have used it for years and can not live without it! Fruit of the Earth is the Vitamin E cream used in many burn units to heal scars on their patients. It is also used by many diabetics who suffer from severely dry/ cracked heels. I fortunately do not have either of these problems but I do tend have very dry skin. I use this twice a day on my arms and legs and at night on my feet and my skin stays soft soft soft and very well moisturized. Occasionally I use it on my face but not regularly and have not had any break outs. I like the smell, which strangely enough reminds me of egg nog. The amazing thing about this product is the price. $3 for a 4 oz. jar. Frequently they are sold in 2 packs for $4. That being said it is hard to find. I actually purchase mine at the Dollar Store :P Don't let that fool you it is an excellent moisturizer and far surpasses many of the high priced designer brands. It is a cream so it is quite thick and rich but absorbs very quickly. If you don't have a dollar store nearby it can be purchased online at Vitamin World. Fruit of the Earth does not use animal testing. I have no negative feed back on this product. I think it is excellent!

It doesn't work. That's all you need to know.
Sunscreen -Banana Boat - Protective tanning Dry oil SPF 15
karen137972 8/10/2010 10:53:00 PM
Actually I use this on my hair. It's too expensive to buy the sunscreen that is made specifically for your hair and since I work outside all day and have dyed my hair red I need some protection from the sun to keep my red from fading. It is my understanding that your hair only needs SPF 15. This spray is a fine mist. It's clear and is a dry oil. I spray it in my hair before I leave for work and then at least once during the day. It doesn't make my hair feel gross in fact I have long curly hair and it makes it more curly. I have used Redkin before and this seems to work for a lot less money, I also have no problem shampooing it out at the end of the day,
I really like this sunscreen it goes on very smoothly and sinks right in. It does not cause breakouts and is fragrance free. Overall a great product. I do wish that they would make a larger size because I use it on my arms and legs as well. It is a good moisturizer.
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Anessa Perfect Essence sunscreen SPF 50 PA+++
karen137972 5/1/2010 2:00:00 PM
I reordered the Anessa Perfect Smooth sunscreen which comes in a silver bottle and received this, which is in a baby blue bottle. The shipper placed a sticker on it indicated this was just new packaging: However, I believe it is a different product. That being said, I loved the one I had but I like this one even more. It goes on super smooth and there is no white cast. It also is neither drying or greasy. If you spend a lot of time outdoors this sunscreen is amazing. It offers the ultimate in sun protection, PA+++ is the strongest grade of UVA protection now available. It is designed for normal skin under very strong or direct UV radiation. and is actually a great primer under make up. IMO it is quite expensive ($30. for a 2 oz. bottle.) That lasted me 3 moths using daily just on face and neck. I totally think that it is worth it I can not recommend this enough.
I use both shampoo and conditioner and they are my favorites. They definitely leave your hair in great condition, soft and silky. I highly recommend. I did not give a 5 rating because for me they are overpriced.
I have used this self tanning lotion off and on for years. I forgot about it for awhile, and although I was so happy that my sunscreen had been doing its job I looked so pale and washed out especially I live in FL and work outside so I want a tan! I went out to purchase the Jergens lotion I had used before and saw the new Revitalizing version. I have applied it twice a day throughout the weekend and I've got what appears to be a tan! A truly HEALTHY one at that. I highly recommend. I use the face version of this lotion that has SPF 30 but only every other day. I use the medium/tan version and there are no streaks no orange color it looks great even in the sunlight. Use rubber gloves to apply or it wil tan your palms and apply regular moisturizer on your elbows, knees, ankles and feet after applying the tanning lotion or the will appear darker. It feels great to have some color and know you are not damaging your skin to get it.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Ageless Restoratives™ 3-in-1 Skin Enhancer
karen137972 4/4/2010 5:26:00 PM
I'm really not quite sure what this is suppose to do for your skin: However I'm using it as a tinted moisturizer. It has a pump bottle and at first I applied waaaay too much and it looked awful. I also applied powder foundation over it and that certainly didn't help. It was all too much. I wanted to like it because I spent $20. on it and I love Neutrogena products. On my second attempted I used it very sparingly, like a pea size amount on my entire face and it looked great. You just have to put a very little bit on and its hard to do because it pumps out too much even if you push lightly. I think the people who didn't like this should try it again using a small amount. It really does make your skin look great and it has SPF 30 which is great.
Sunscreen -Banana Boat - Kids Max Protect & Play SPF 100
karen137972 4/4/2010 5:14:00 PM
Although this sunscreen works, it is so thick and sticky that it is way too hard to apply. I used it once on my legs and arms and it was extremely dry and it took forever to rub in. There are def better sunscreens out there. Would not recommend :C
I lighten my medium brown hair to medium blonde and use this to lighten my dark eyebrows. Works like a charm! No orange tint. I personally use1/8 tsp. powder and 1/4 tsp cream, leave on for 2 min., rinse off and mission accomplished. If you have not used before start with one min. intervals so that you don't overdo it! Highly recommend. It's cheap, quick and very easy. Using such a small amount, I would repurchase but will probably never need to.
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]
karen137972 3/28/2010 6:17:00 PM
Fanfreakintastic! This mascara base works wonders on ANY mascara. Adds length and staying power. Ends the search for the perfect mascara because if you use this virtually any mascara looks perfect and makes your lashes look incredible. Go out and get it NOW! (Good luck finding it)
Tastes yummy smells yummy, and adds just a hint of color. This lip gloss goes on smoothly and has SPF 20. The tube as a slanted end which is my favorite way to apply lip gloss. I don't like brushes that get all messed up when you try to put them back in and doe foot sponges make me think I'm contaminating the product when I put them back in. Overall There is nothing bad about this lip gloss. I purchased mine at Walgreens for $6.50. It's in with the sunscreens.
