I use powdered zinc instead of powder. As part of my natural skincare routine. Zinc is anti inflamatory and is excellent in help with acne. I am in my 40's. I battle a touch of acne, oily T zone and fine lines. Zinc stimultates the immune system which helps all of this. Plus a natural sunscreen. And natural matte texture on my nose and chin. For me why pay for talc powder when I can …Read more

Unfortunately add me to the list of people who broke out from taking this. I definitely break out when I takeep omega 6 or 9 so I thought I should try omega 3 instead, but I noticed an increase in whiteheads and general congestion very quickly. I tried to persist with them but it never got any better, I also didn't notice a difference in my skins hydration levels either.

TLDR: Holy MOLY this stuff worked wonders for my poor sensitive, dry winter skin. No bad things to say! 10/10 would recommend.

Context: My skin is dry, VERY dry during the winter, to the point where makeup will go on patchy and accentuate the appearance of scaly flakes on my cheeks and chin especially.

BUT my skin is also sensitive to breakouts and irritation. So what happens …

I adore coconut oil for my diet, it has helped with health concerns and generally my body loves it. I was sure that I would have similar luck with using this for beauty, but unfortunately, not. Most recently I tried it as a lip balm, and it didn't stay on for long, and once it came off my lips were drier after than before!

I first started takin Biotin in one of those 'Hair & Nail' formulas which combine several beneficial ingredients for improving hair loss/ condition and nails. After 2 months and not seeing much difference I purchased Biotin on its own in 5000 mcg, taking one capsule daily. Almost 3 months on that and my nails were definitely stronger and in better condition than I've ever seen …Read more

This is an excellent moisturizing oil for my dry, sensitive and/or inflamed skin. Yes, it is orange in color and be advised will show up on fair skin until absorbed. It has a vaguely nutty, natural scent that dissipates. I use Life Flo Cold Pressed Organic Pure Sea Buckthorn Oil from Vitacost or Amazon, priced at about $14.00 for a 1fl oz. brown glass bottle with an eyedropper cap dispenser. 1-3 …Read more

Everyone should have one of these and apparently won't need a second one ever - I have mine for about four years now and it's still excellent!

Very effective, gentle on the nails and easy to clean. I recently bought one for my mother and she's thrilled too :)

You best believe this stuff works for growing out lashes and brows. I had a bottle of this laying around since I use it for making DIY lip balms. After having read reviews here on MUA about how it helps with lash and brow growth, I decided to try it for myself. I'll admit, I was very skeptical of the claims I read but since the bottle only cost me $2.50, I had nothing to lose. Well …Read more
