This is my HG night time moisturizer. It has just enough weight and hydration in the formulation to smooth dry skin without feeling greasy. It sinks in and keeps any flakiness from using tretinoin away. As my skin has become drier over the years, I've started using this year round. It's too much for day time use, but it's a staple for night time and it layers well with other …Read more
This is a silicone heavy sunscreen that goes on smoothly and dries to a beautiful matte finish, just as the name suggests. I found it easy to apply and it provides sufficient sun protection. It's very like MDSolarsciences BB cream, although the finish on this is more elegant and seems to work better as a primer. Unfortunately, the tint is far too dark for my NC20-25 skin. If Replenix came …Read more
Ridiculously expensive but a great product.

Plumberry is a juicy raspberry shade that has a slight jelly-like finish when two coats are applied. I use this with a topcoat of Seche Vite and find it to be very long wearing with no chipping issues. Great for summer but just deep enough that it works in cooler weather as well.
I've used this for years with great results. My hair is 3A curly, but thermally straightened and colored. Cloud 9 provides good moisturizing with just enough slip and a clean scent. It rinses easily, even in hard water. Love this stuff.
While this is a cool-toned color, to my eye this name is a misnomer since the color is far more brown than gray. It looks muddy in the pan as well as on my NC20 coloring. I'll give it a few more tries to see if there are better ways to wear it (currently using as a wash with BB Ivory) but I don't foresee reaching for this often.
I don't wear foundation, and really dislike putting much more on my skin other than SPF and a dusting of powder/blush. This is a fantastic product for someone like me. It's a mousse-light formulation that smooths on the skin and blends beautifully. I'm an NC20, and I'm using the Light/Medium option. It looks much too dark straight out of the tube, but it sheers out well and …Read more
