Styling Products -Redken - Smooth Down Heat Glide ] [DISCONTINUED]

This is the holy grail for anyone with dry, frizzy, dull hair. If you have been let down by companies claiming their products will correct your frizzies (such as the bogus Living Proof), then try this. It has made my hair shiny, controlled, beautiful. People for once are complimenting me on my hair when all I usually hear are insults about it. I am tempted to stand on a corner and distribute samples of this, so it will stay on the market. THIS IS THE BEST PRODUCT FOR ANYONE WITH UNRULY, REBELLIOUS HAIR. TRUST ME, LADIES, I HAVE TRIED THEM ALL AND NOTHING BEATS THIS.
The best product to control puffy hair. I rarely leave reviews for hair products because I've tried just about everything, and only a handful have helped my hair. This tames my hair, and helps my dry, coarse, harsh-looking hair look silky and shiny. I LOVE THIS!!!

Waste of $. I actually thought it made a difference and left a good review on QVC. I think I had M.I.T. in mind and thought because of that, it must be great. It is not, M.I.T. or no M.I.T. this does not help with frizziness at all. Every single day I have come home with frizzy hair after blow drying it straight in the morning. I am so upset that I've spent so much money on this fluff.

What a fantastic product. I have always suffered from bad skin. I have suffered from hyperpigmentation, uneven tone, oily skin. In my desperation to find something that works I have tried it all (even a $400.00 cream and a $500. Baby Quasar red light therapy device). I would say that only Clarisonic helped but there was a lot more that need to be done. Well, I was channel surfing and saw this demonstrated. I figured why not try this too, I've tried everything else. I cannot believe the results. My skin is finally even toned, brighter, translucent. I mean for once I have really good skin.I honestly would not even expect results this good even from a professional. This is an extraordinary product.
I am becoming a Phyto fanatic. I have the most challenging of hair types (please see my T3 review). It is coarse, dry, frizzy (actually kinky), thick. This and the T3 are helping significantly. (See my photo, that is with the use of Phyto, and remember my natural hair type.) I have tried all and I mean all all the oils, pomades, creams relaxers, serums to control my hair, and this without a doubt is the best. It leaves my hair smooth, shiny, controlled. I honestly am tempted to write to the creator of this line to thank him for this phenomenal product.
Liquid -Giorgio Armani - Lasting Silk UV Foundation SPF20
libralibra 5/20/2009 8:27:00 PM
Another fantastic foundation from the mighty Armani. It took me a while to get it right. Since I wear the #5 in LSF, I ordered this in 5. The Lasting Silk #5 is the perfect combination of pink yellow, but it was too light for me. Then I ordered the 5.5. Didn't like because it was too yellow (and I prefer yellow toned, but the yellow was excessive). I read the reviews here and decided to order the 7 since it was neutral. When I received it I was surprised to discover it was not that dark and just like #5 perfect combination of yellow and pink. It is a tad, just a tad too dark so I mix it with #5 to lighten it a bit. But gosh, this is just perfect. I do wish Armani cosmetics were available in more stores because I almost gave up on this, and now I simply can't be without it.
Primer/ Corrector -Philosophy - the supernatural poreless flawless spf 15

My feelings about this product are exactly the same as Dulcinea1078 below. Great look, feels good, but BROKE ME OUT! Too bad
Powder -Sofina - Sofina Raycious Ray Select Powder
libralibra 6/23/2008 7:47:00 PM
After purchasing the pore refiner and loving it, I wanted to experiment more with Sofina products. I am always on the lookout for a great foundation, so I purchased this. I didn't like this AT ALL. It was too chalky. I purchased the 15, and although I opt for yellow tone foundations, this was way too yellow. This also did not brighten up my face. In fact my skin looked dull with this on. My advice to anyone considering this product; don't buy it unless you've tried it.
Another spectacular blush from Armani. This is a soft pink (not loud), sheer and just gorgeous. I was worried this may not show up well on me (# 2 unfortunately doesn't). I am so grateful to Pinky33 who went out of her way to compare the two. And actually this fixed the problem of #2 not showing up on me On the days that I feel like wearing #2, I first apply #11 then #2 over and GORGEOUS.
You know, I have always known a product like this was out there, and I just needed to find it. I have searched and searched and searched. Well here it is.I have struck gold. Here it is; a product that will make my skin look flawless (and my skin is anything but), look completely natural, and keep my extremely oily skin matte. This is incredible. I even had an airbrushed foundation applied, and it didn't look this good. My skin also as a tendancy to look stressed out by the end of the day, and incrediblely, this prevents that. I apply this 7:00 am , and 12 hours later the makeup still looks fresh. I do wish there were more shades available. The Luminess is far too light for me, and the Radiant is just a tad too dark. I ended up buying both and mixing them. Expensive? yes, but I apply these every single day, and to me it is better than purchasing a dress and wearing once every six months.
Moisturizers -Revive - Re Vive Oil Free Oil Control Sensitif
libralibra 8/11/2007 6:54:00 PM
This is my fifth Re Vive purchase, and my first disappointment in the line. The product is suppose to keep your skin matte. It didn't. Infact, my skin looked shinier, and my pores were more visable with this on.

This is the fifth Re Vive product I've purchased and my first disappointment in the line. First, it did not mattify my skin as claimed. Infact my face looked shinier and my pores were more visible with it and it didn't control the oilies one bit. Second, my face broke out after about a week of using it. I really had high hopes after using other products in the line, but this didn't work out.
Skincare - Face -Revive - Moisturizing Renewal Cream

Another phenemenal product from Re vive. They claim you will see a significant improvement within two weeks, and I did. My skin is much more even toned, brighter, smoother. My pores seemed to have disappeared, and I thought that was impossible. I would like to try more products in this line. I do wish the company was merciful; yikes those prices!
Remarkable. I HAVE TRIED JUST ABOUT EVERY EYE CREAM OUT THERE, AND THIS IS THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS MADE A DIFFERENCE; it has made a substantial difference. I received a sample of this on a Friday, and by the following Tuesday, I saw a tremendous improvement in my eye area. Remarkable. The price is scary but when I think of how much I've spent in the past on eye creams in my desperation to find something that works, well I'm glad I've found this. Some of the eye products I've tried and none of these did anything: Sisley, Shiseido, Mac, Bobbi Brown, Borba, Merle Norman,Arden, Kiehls, Clinique, Lauder, Obagi, Lancome all eye creams sold on QVC and HSN, Peter T. Roth, Kinerese, Hylexin, Strivestin (not sure spelling),just about all sold at Sephora and Ulta, a few I've written reviews for but I can't remember their names. Clarita, Cle De Peau and Prada made a slight improvement. But Revive has made a dramatic difference, and I've only used this 10 days! I am definately purchasing the full size.
I have tried every single foundation on the market, both department store and drug store, and this has been the best for me. It is the most natural looking. It doesn't turn orange on my oily skin. My face looks flawless with this, and again it is natural looking. It doesn't look like I am wearing foundation.
