NOOOO!!! I just logged on to rave about this product & then learned from the reviews already posted that this contains rubbing alcohol. I doubled checked, yep, they are correct. It is high on the list. I never thought to check the ingredients beforehand & this product has been WONDERFUL. Who the hell puts rubbing alcohol in a leave-in conditioner though? Although the results have been …Read more

Hair - TRESemmé - Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray

Aug/08/2013

Sooooooo many people recommended the original, overrated Tresemme heat protection spray (Heat Tamer??? I believe) to me but it never worked on my hair. Tresemme Platinum Strength spray had the same downfalls too (added 0 moisture).

Tresemme's Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray on the other hand, has been wonderful. This is going to be a staple in my haircare collection. I …

This did nothing to benefit my hair/scalp & actually further irritated the issues I am having. If you have sensitive skin or are dealing with a red scalp, opt for the 2% Zinc H&S instead.

I *think* they're about to discontinue this product. It's becoming harder & harder to find on store shelves. I hope they replace it with something even better, because this serum is awesome. I have dry, damaged, thinning hair. Most serums make me look like a dirty, balding rat. Not with Keratin Infusion, though.

It leaves my hair shiny. Not many products can "bring …

Jul/08/2013

I have tried almost all of the primers currently on the market. From Benefit's Porefessional to Becca's Evermatte to NYX's Porefiller. You name it, I've tried it. I keep searching for a holy grail primer because I really need one in order to look good. My face sort of looks like a pizza before I apply make up. It's always greasy, & has both huge pores + acne scarring …Read more

I love that there was a color match for my albino warm skintone (Siberia)...but that's as far as the list of pros go for this product in my experience.

This was one of the worst foundations I've ever used. It just kept balling up as I applied it. I wish I could vouch for it's oil controlling properties, but I *couldn't* even keep it on long enough to find out. It …

This isn't my HG blush although I do really like it. It's hard to deny the sleek Nars packaging looks nice, even if I do never use the built in mirror. If you are warm toned & very pale (think NC10-NC15) this blush will also look beautiful on you. It is a very light, peach color with a tinge of pink. The color looks very natural on my porcelain skin. I wish other cosmetic companies …Read more

For reference I am NC10 at MAC. Which means I am nearly albino, with warm undertones. I have extremely oily skin, big pores, & currently live in TX where summer is basically hot, humid, hell on earth. Saying it is hard for me to find proper make up would be an understatement.

I used Coty Airspun for years (which is talc based) & I really thought that was the best thing on …

Jul/02/2013

I care so little for this product I'm not even going to bother with writing in paragraph form.

Pros:
-Broad spectrum SS.
-No glitter like I dreaded before purchasing. Revlon Photoready liquid foundation still haunts me to this day with that shimmer crap.
-Lightest shade is warm toned. That won't be a pro for any of you cool toned women out there. But it was …

For reference I am very pale with warm undertones & super oily skin. This was my go-to summer foundation last year. I really like (not love) Revlon CS liquid foundation & this is more matte. The formula could hold up through even the hottest days here in humid Dallas. All day...everyday.

Fast forward one year. I've learned a lot about make up during this time, such as …
