I was not going to give this a good review because I thought it was breaking my face out. But then I noticed that a big scar I had from a pimple had disappeared. I have tried everything to get rid of that thing including the at home microdermabrasion and retin-a. But it just seems to have disappeared. So if this did it then that is great. Of course if it is also breaking my face out then I'm not sure what to do. Could the heat from this just be getting the impurities out of my skin? It really makes my face smooth after using it. So to wrap this thing up we have something that gets rid of scars but also breaks you out.
Okay, this really is unbelievable. I live in a place that is like a steam bath. You walk outside and immediately start sweating. So I did not believe this foundation would be any better than any other that I have used. I also have oily skin and use a pretty heavy duty moisturizer with spf(Neutrogena Healthy Defense.) Anyway, I put this on after my usual moisturizer, then my loose powder. I went to the park and walked in 100% humidity and probably 90 degree heat. Came home and couldn't believe that not only is my makeup still on, but my face did not even look oily! With my other foundation my face is like an oil slick and feels awful. Well this is a great find, so I will definitely be purchasing this again.
This is the product. If you have curly hair and you have been looking for the product that will give you the great curls without the crunch, this is it. The first time I used it I couldn't believe it. I expected the same thing as with all the other products either crunchy hair or big poufy hair. Instead I got perfect defined curls.
I think the big problem with these is that people touch them while they are drying and it breaks the bond between the strip and the nose. That may be why they are not getting the blackheads out. You have to let it dry completely without touching it. They really work for me.
I'm writing this on behalf of my mother(age 62). She just started using this and she loves it. I noticed her skin looked really good today. I asked if she had used this and she said she used it last night and today. I asked if she had put on the new blush I had gotten her and she said she didn't even have blush on. It looked like she had on really pretty blush. So this really does work. My mother has mature, kind of dry skin and she looked like she was glowing.
Lip Treatments -Avon - Beyond Color Lip Recovery Cream

I really like this product. It has a light feeling, but also protects your lips with spf 15. It does not have a sticky or gloppy feeling. It also has a very light sort of citrus smell. I really like the packaging also. You twist the end to get the product into the brush. I got this on Ebay for 3.49.
This is a very weird fragrance to me. I don't know much about perfume, but I usually know if I like something almost immediately. But this is very different. I sprayed it and thought it smelled like soap. I was annoyed because I spent money on something that I wouldn't wear. Then I smelled it again on my arm, and it had changed into a light wonderful smell. I don't really know how to describe it, but I loved it.

This is one of the few products that I have ever re-purchased. It smells sooo good. It is a really great lotion. It leaves your skin with a pretty sheen and smelling great.

I use this as a concealer and I think it's great. It has lasted forever and it really covers blemishes well.
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - Dickinson's Witch Hazel

I read about witch hazel somewhere and thought I would try it. My mother had a bottle of Dickinson's in her cabinet, so I used it. It worked so well, gets off all makeup and does not dry out or tighten skin. So I asked my mom to pick up another bottle. She bought a store brand. I tried it and it works just as well. The smell is a little bit annoying but I can live with it for good results. I have oily skin and I don't seem to be getting the same amount of breakouts as I used to.
I really like this blush. It looks totally different on than in the bottle. It looks like a natural pink. I compared it to the Clinique gel blush. Using the same amount of the Clinique that I used of the mark, you couldn't even see the Clinique. So the price is great, only about 5.00 on Ebay, and you use the tiniest amount so it will probably last a long time.
Scrubs -Olay - Daily Facials Intensives Smooth Skin Exfoliating Scrub

This is a really great scrub! It left my face soft, with no tightness at all. A nice sized tube for the money also. Another good product from Oil of Olay.
I am really surprised at the bad reviews for this lipstick. I have three of them and I think they are great. I have Rose drape',which is a shimmery pink; Terre de feu, which is a rich matte red; and Gold & Wine bicolor, which is a shimmery gold and a more matte wine. It is my favorite, because I can create different colors by using more or less of the two colors. I also like the powder smell.
Cleansers -Molton Brown - softcleanse rosewax liquifier

This product works really well. It did just what it claimed it would do. It melts the make-up right off. It also left my face feeling soft. Problem is, it costs over 30 dollars for 3.3 ounces. So I think I will stick with Cetaphil which works really well also and costs less than 1/3 the price of this.
