Also got this as a sample in light. Bought it in med/light and looks great on! I use makeup over it. I can just see using this by itself in summer and I do notice the pores on my nose are less visible. But, I also noticed I had to powder my nose after 4 hrs or so. Still waiting and will update on the sunspots on my face to see if they faded any after a month or so. Still worth it though for hiding the visible pores on my nose! My face does feel more soft and moisturized! Been a week now and even though my face looks brighter and one of my sunspots looks a little lighter, can't help but love Paula's "Cosmetic Cop Reviews" : http://www.paulaschoice.com/beautypedia-skin-care-reviews/by-brand/smashbox/_/Camera-Ready-CC-Cream-Broad-Spectrum-SPF-30-Dark-Spot-Correcting Buyers beware! Nuff said :) Been almost a month now. No change in sunspots on my face. Still like the smooth look and smaller pores on my nose but other than that, a very expensive 1 ounce of light makeup.
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup

Love this! At first I was disappointed as I THOUGHT it didn't cover well. But, each day I wore it, I noticed a smoothness, softer and a younger looking feel and texture to my face. The makeup is not heavy at all and yes, there is a glow, a youthful one to this 62 year old face! The circles under the eyes are gone (no need for concealer) and the color N5 is a perfect match for my light medium golden tone. It is buildable and several colors are offered to match perfectly. I may have to powder my nose after 6 hrs or so, but this makeup has the qualities of Clinique or Estee Lauder in my opinion at a much affordable price! A keeper!
Liquid -Cover Girl - TRUblend Liquid Makeup (12/2007 reformulation)

Picked this up on a whim. I had bought the pricey Clinique Laser focus Repairwear (improved?) makeup and the formulation had changed to bad that I had given up on "expensive" brands. This went on smooth and the color "warm beige" was perfect! It evened out my skin tone and made me look younger than my 61 years. I used a dusting of powder to set. Very happy with this purchase!
Liquid -Clinique - Repairwear Laser Focus All-Smooth Makeup

Gosh I loved the previous Repairwear that was discontinued. This one is not as thick and also not as much coverage. They have numbers now instead of names for the colors and I got one too light--the next one looked too dark! The clerk that helped me had no idea how the new colors matched the old ones! I need to use bronzer to get the color I want. Was disappointed that the coverage was not there and the price went up! And, the "pump" was gone and I had touching the makeup from the bottle! Will not repurchase.
Treatments -Paula's Choice - Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate

Great product! Noticed extreme softness on my 61 y/o face. More plumpness and younger looking too. Unexpected benefit for me?? My age related bumps on my face are almost gone. They are half the size and lighter in color. I have been using this product for only 2 weeks. Just a little goes a long way for your skin to be happy.
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - La Bella - Waterbase Pomade

My search for the perfect pomade is done! This incredible pomade is non sticky, non oily and actually good for your hair! It moisturizes and keeps your hair style all day plus it has aloe vera to condition! I was sold when I rinsed out my hands and there was no oily residue. So, you know your hair isn't getting the residue either! It gives lots of lift and the next day just add a little more and style again in a snap! I found it at "Fresh & Easy" neighborhood store and it was under $4.00! I will never go back to the greasy, stiff and alcohol based other pomades again! Try it, you won't regret it! It also comes oil based but I wasn't looking for that so can't comment.
Nice feel and goes on smooth but does nothing for this over 50 gal. Lasts maybe for a half an hour then my under eye area is dry again. Does nothing for dark circles. Older ladies, don't waste your money!
Treatments (Eye) -Garnier - Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream

Good product. Doesn't lift but it does seem to make my eyes sparkle and younger looking. Also under eye area is always moist during the day. Feels good and just a dab does it.
Fantastic product! Used for my dry heels and also my extremely dry hair and both feel wonderful! My hair was like straw from all the coloring and using the curling iron. Use just a small amount, rub between your hands and apply as if you are messing your hair up! My hair and scalp felt brand new! Hair is the softest it's been in 30 years! I will never be without this product!
Too shimmery for me but nice moisturizing for the summer months. Nothing special.
Treatments (Eye) -Burt's Bees - Radiance Eye Cream with Royal Jelly
shilo 7/1/2008 10:32:00 AM
Excellent eye cream! I was on the fence for a week with this at first. Then I started to notice how wonderfully soft my under eye area was in the morning! My makeup just glided on in that area. Also, there is a sparkle, a "radiance" when you look at your eyes. I love the fact too that it absorbs well on this 58 y/o face. It really does work and no harmful ingredients!
Eye Shadow -Clinique - Color Surge Duo in Spruced Up
shilo 8/29/2007 6:57:00 PM
I just recently ran out of the brown shade in the duo "Spruced Up". I hardly used the green as I like my ES more for everyday and neutral. I asked at the MU counter which shade was more like the lovely brown shade in "Spruced Up". She recommended Foxy. Foxy to me is more of a cool brown but will do for now. I was looking more for a warm brown. Has anyone tried Sierra Glaze?
Powder -Physicians Formula - CoverToxTen50 Wrinkle Therapy Face Powder
shilo 2/11/2007 1:42:00 AM
Love it! At first I didn't see a thing. But after about 10 minutes, my face started to brighten and get softer. I used a good moisturizer underneath, put on the PF mineral powder and then applied the CoverTox. I can't explain it. It's like your whole face lightens up and the lines are less obvious and more softer. I think it takes 5 years off my face. I won't be without it!
Lotions/ Creams -Jergens - Jergens Age Defying Multivitamin Moisturizer
shilo 11/5/2006 10:20:00 PM
Didn't care too much for this Jergens lotion. I couldn't take the smell of it and I didn't see any improvement or much moisturizing. Kind of sticky too. The Skin Smoothing Cellular Renewal Moisturizer is a better deal for being "age defying" for older skin.
One of the best Jergens lotions out there. Right now I am in the process of trying all of them and this is number one for me so far. The shea butter is second. The Skin Smoothing has natural fruit acids that really soften my 56 y/o old hands and make them feel younger. I also put this on my face and it makes my skin smoother there too. Good one to try!
