LOOOOOVE this oil. I have every skin concern in the book, & this stuff treats it all. I buy the Sibu brand on Amazon for about $10, & it has literally transformed my skin. After trying every product out there, this little bottle of natural oil is all I need. Just try it.
Self Tanners -St.Tropez - St.Tropez Tinted Self Tanning Mousse/Whipped Bronze
smile08 12/4/2012 5:42:00 AM
Pros: Natural color Doesn't streak if applied correctly. Doesn't smell as bad as other tanners I've tried. Fades naturally, without streaking or flaking. Application mitt makes application very fast (5 minutes). Dries very fast (this could also be a con because if you don't apply it correctly it will dry with streaks). Cons: Color build is gradual. You *have* to use the application mitt, or this will stain hands for days. Application with the mitt is more prone to streaks than using hands. Not appropriate for acne-prone skin (all self-tanners will clog pores.. that's how they work). Does have a slight self-tanner scent to it (although less than other products).
Pressed Powders -Urban Decay - De-Slick Mattifying Powder

With the stellar reviews I was SO excited to try this powder that I drove 20 miles out of my way to Ulta to buy it because my local store (Sephora) was out of stock. I have a "very oily" t-zone, with dry areas elsewhere, and haven't EVER found a product that keeps me matte for more than 30 minutes. This powder was no exception, so I may be returning it since it was $30+. I gave it 3 lippies because it applies nicely over my Bare Minerals loose powder foundation, but I did have to reapply every 45 minutes. I'm going to try it again under my foundation as well as over, just to see if that makes a difference, & I'll report my findings.
