Powder -Everyday Minerals - Foundation Original Glo Formula
mommygirl156 4/7/2008 6:43:00 PM
I've tried all sorts of mineral foundations and powders. Each one, more annoying than the next. I actually had given up on them recently...that is until I came across some new items from Everyday Minerals. I love the way it made my skin look and feel. The best part...no itch!!! Everytime I used the Bare Escentuals products I would end up wiping most of it off towards the end of the day. It would start off ok, but as the day progressed my face would start to itch. I soon learned it was due to a certain mineral ( bismuth oxychloride ) that they used. I guess I'm one of the few who are allergic to it. Knock on wood...I haven't had any issues with any of the Everyday Mineral products. I love the fact that a little goes along way. The wide range of colors they offer, cheaper prices and great products make this one of my favorites!!!

I've tried all sorts of mineral foundations and powders. Each one, more annoying than the next. I actually had given up on them recently...that was until my mom gave me a sample of this powder. I love the way it made my skin look and feel. The best part...no itch!!! Everytime I used the Bare Escentuals products I would end up wiping most of it off towards the end of the day. It would start off ok, but as the day progressed my face would start to itch. I soon learned it was due to a certain mineral ( bismuth oxychloride ) that they used. I guess I'm one of the few who are allergic to it. Knock on wood...I haven't had any issues with any of the Everyday Mineral products. I love the fact that a little goes along way with this powder and infact with all of their products. The wide range of colors they offer, cheaper prices and great products make this one of my favorites!!!
Concealers -Everyday Minerals - Multi-tasking Concealer
mommygirl156 4/7/2008 6:33:00 PM
This is one of the best mineral concealers that I have used. The color matches perfectly...which says a lot for me because I have super fair skin. For me to find a foundation and concealor that match is rare. I love the variety of shades Everyday Minerals offers. I also love the fact that I can custom blend as well. Plus, you can't beat the price and with no expiration date and the small amount needed to cover stuff...this product lasts a super, super long time.
Treatments (Eye) -Mario Badescu - Hyaluronic Eye Cream
mommygirl156 4/7/2008 6:26:00 PM
This is my go to day eye cream. I got a sample of it a few weeks ago and have been using it daily. It barely shoes any usage because a little goes along way...so I'm sure when I buy the full size jar that will last a super long time. It absorbs nicely and doesn't make my undereye feel greasy at all.
This is an awesome eye cream. I've been using it at night for a couple of weeks now and have noticed a huge difference in the skin around my eyes. I noticed a couple of weeks ago how dry my eyes looked. Since using this product, my skin is no longer dry. I use it at night because it's so thick. A little goes a long, long way.
Moisturizers -Mario Badescu - Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17
mommygirl156 3/24/2008 10:51:00 PM
My skin has a tendency to be on the oily side when it comes to my T-zone. A lot of moisturizers I have tried with an spf only add to the problem. This one works wonders. Not only do I have spf protection...but I also don't have to worry about added oil to my face. It also doesn't dry out my skin and I haven't had any breakouts when I use it. It's a great moisturizer!!!
I am a total fanatic when it comes to skincare and spf. I've tried them all too. This is one the best suncare SPF 30's out there. It doesn't make my skin feel oily or cause my makeup to slide off my face. It goes on a little thick...which I wasn't crazy about at first. I apply it and then let it set for a bit before applying my makeup. This seems to work the best. I haven't had any breakouts while using this product either. Most importantly, I haven't gotten a sunburn on my face whenever I use it...so it's doing it's job!!!
Toners -Mario Badescu - Alpha-Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion
mommygirl156 3/24/2008 10:45:00 PM
I rotate back and forth between this toner and the Glycolic Toner. I love the way my skin feels after using this toner. It feels clean and smooth...not tight and dry like most toners I use. Between using this Toner and the Glycolic, my skin is finally clear!
Toners -Mario Badescu - Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion
mommygirl156 3/24/2008 10:43:00 PM
I was always afraid to use products with a Glycolic acid in them. I have super sensitive skin and everytime I would try them, they woudl burn my face. This is the first time I have ever been able to use a product with Glycolic Acid in it and not have any issues. I uses the Glycolic Foaming Fash Wash a few times a week to help with exfoliation and I use this product a few times a week to also help with exfoliation. I can't believe the difference in my skin. It looks healthy and clear! This is, by far, one of the best toners out there!!!
This is one of the best cleansers out there! I'm a huge fan of the Mario Badescu products. I have super sensitive skin...so a lot of new products I try ( regardless of the line ) cause break outs and rashes. This cleanser does a great job removing makeup and buildup. My skin feels super clean afterwards. I always follow up with a toner and there is never any leftover residue found on the cotton ball. This cleanser really does the job! I also love the smell. It's very light and refreshing.
I have to say...I really love this cream. It goes on thick and moisturizers my skin super well and doesn't cause any break outs. I love that it's thick and creamy. I really feel like I am moisturizing my skin really well when I use this cream. It also has a pleasant smell to it. Some of the Mario Badescu Seaweed products, I feel, have a funny smell to them. This one, doesn't. Plus, if I have any extra leftover from working into my face I rub it in my hands. It makes a great nighttime hand cream as well. I love this cream!!!
I'm not a huge fan of Mary Kay products. There are some I like, but most of them I hate. This product, however, I love. It's one of the best concealers out there. It doesn't settle in any fine lines. The coverage is great and it stays where you put it and a little goes a long, long way. It's great stuff at a great price.
Super easy to apply and give a nice natural look. However, because of the cost I'll probably never buy this one again.
Foundations -Philosophy - the supernatural airbrush canvas
mommygirl156 1/23/2008 8:35:00 PM
I was a little afraid to try this product. I'm extremely fair and thought the natural shade would be too dark. It's still a little too orange for my fair skin, but the coverage was nice. Application was a breeze...however...despite it being easy to apply and the great coverage...I didn't like how expensive it was. Especially since it wasn't a perfect match for my skin.
Treatments (Eye) -Avon - Anew Alternative Intensive Eye Cream [DISCONTINUED]
mommygirl156 1/14/2008 3:20:00 PM
Sensitive skin ladies stay away! I have tried the Anew line over and over again...still not learning a lesson. I think I finally have. I recently tried the Anew Alternative line...and I'm sorry I did. Although the smell is ok, the burning and itching that goes along with the creams with each use is not.
