HG. Love.....they have this at my gym and honestly I could bathe in this stuff!
Sunscreen -Dermalogica - Ultra Sensitive Faceblock SPF 25

Love this. Great tint, moisturizing....creamy and doesn't get chalky! SPF and antioxidants! What more could I want? This is the best tinted SPF I have used. Doesn't irritate eyes either...
**THE BEST** Can't say enough about this lotion. I've been using for just over a month now and keratosis pilaris is about 95% gone. Skin is baby soft and skin tone actually looks better. Won't be without this stuff.......HG
Did very little for my skin. So disappointed, as it's expensive and my facialist highly recommended. I have used 3/4 of the jar, as I like to give products a chance before I review. No visible results to speak of. By chance I was @ Sephora over the weekend and rec'd a sample of the REN glycolactic peel mask. I used it last night, not really expecting anything and WOW - for the first time in so long, my skin felt exfoliated and sooo soft. Great results....reinforced the fact that the Kerafole does nothing for my skin. I will be purchasing the REN mask!
Love!!! I just went back to this after trying Tan Towels (looked like self-tanner rather than a natural tan), Decleor (turned me yellowish) and Bare Escentuals (didn't get this one at all, despite the rave reviews).....and I remember why I love it! Most natural, easiest application (spray into hands and rub over face) or directly on arms/chest/legs and rub in. Gives the most real-looking NATURAL golden color. And doesn't upset my face. Hands down favorite.
Crap. Waste of money. Used twice (just to make sure) and tossed in garbage.
LOVE this color - it's my winter vampy go-to color. Have tried tons that look "similar" but this is by far my favorite - garners tons of compliments, too!! Fashiois4ever - you mention the flaking/chipping issue - it sounds like it may have something to do with the base coat as opposed to the actual color. There's one nail salon I used to go to and the same thing happened - regardless if I used OPI or Essie and it was the base coat they used.
Treatments -Jan Marini - Age Intervention Face Serum

The jury is still out in terms of its benefits (only been using two weeks). So, at this point I haven't noticed much improvement but that is to be expected. What I can't get past however is the smell (odd and overpowering--I use it at night and can smell it the next morning), the stickiness it leaves on my skin and the HORRENDOUS packaging. It's the most unsightly bottle I have ever seen - I have a serum too, which is actually uglier. It looks like some depressing institutional product. If it's a miracle cream, I can get past that....but as I mentioned, not impressed thus far. Was really hoping to fall in love with JM.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals in 1.2, fairly light

REALLY happy with this line!!! I will give you the long and the short of it. VERY natural, feels fantastic on the skin, covers redness and marks so long as you have the small brush, soooo easy to blend with Warmth. Blush and Mineral Veil for the perfect color and finish Def. use the primer first if you have noticeable pores. Only negative is that is can be messy. Overall, I would highly recommend!!!
Didn't like this very much. Coverage was not impressive and it left me with a very chalky feeling afterwards. I like foundation/powder to make my skin feel smooth, soft and velvety. I have nice skin and I exfoliate, but it just left a "dry" chalky residue. Switched to Bare Minerals and I LOVE!!! It has a beautiful finish and makes my skin feel super soft. Great coverage too.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - "Gunmetal" Shimmer Shadow

I've tried so many times to like Bobbi Brown as it seems like a cult favorite and I just don't get it. I have been disappointed EVERY time and don't see what there is to like. Bought this eyeshadow and two of the bases that are in the pots. They are awful--don't glide on and instead leave a chalky cakey look all over my eyes. Even used the expensive brush they recommend. The shadow did nothing for me. As did the undereye concealor. Returned everything and went back to Clinique (touch base) and Laura Mercier (shadows and eyeliner). Much better!!!
HG....it is fantastic.
I have been using this for almost 3 weeks and SO FAR it's better than ANYTHING I have tried to date. And I have tried everything. Mostly I was trying organic products trying to find something all natural, but nothing worked or even came close to relieving my dry chapped lips. Carmex Mint--which truthfully I didn't want to like, worked wonders. I love the SPF and it keeps my lips in PERFECT condition. Amazing stuff. Not sure what other people are talking about regarding the taste. I don't taste anything--just smell a hint of mint which is fine by me.
I really wanted to find a good inexpensive moisturizer--this isn't it. Unfortunately, it must be the SPF -- every day I put this lotion on my eyes BURNED all day. I finally put two and two together--has to be the lotion. Still looking.....
Love. You definetly get the bright ripe mango scent....and it's a little peppery/lemony. I often get compliments. Really smells unique. Highly recommend if you are looking for something "different".
