I think I've been using this as my "foundation" for about a year. As I've gotten older, my complexion has gotten a a bit drier so this seems to work nicely and even though I am fair, I don't have the issues others have mentioned with it oxidizing or turning orange.

I do use a concealer to cover redness and under my eyes first and I follow up with PF powder to …

Buy organic for sure. I use the loose variety and brew a strong tea that I transfer into a spray fine-mist bottle. I have extremely reactive skin and this works wonders why I abuse my skin experimenting or even for TTOTM. Yeah it's a pain to brew it and use daily, but dang if this stuff doesn't work like a freakin' charm -- so worth the effort!

One exception -- if you …

Love this stuff. Been using it for over a year and love this and Aubrey Rosa Mosqueta. I use this in the evening, by itself and sometimes with an additional eye cream or moisturizer. A few times a week I am using Retin-A at night so this is fabulous for the other nights! My skin drinks this up and no break outs!

I use this in copper, between chemical colorings, on my long hair. I wash, then do a rinse with chamomile, calendula, honey, lemon and olive oil before I apply. And I leave it on longer than instructed because I have some white roots. I love how they blend like highlights. I do have to touch up about every 2 wks which is a pain, but the color is so shiny, natural and healthy looking. I buy mine …Read more

This leave-in conditioner is absolutely fabulous for my thick, wavy, color-treated hair. It adds moisture without greasiness or limpness. I've used many leave-ins and this is my HG. I've bought gone through several bottles and even got my son on this as we have the same hair type (he doesn't color his though. lol!) I can see why it doesn't work for thin, fine, oily hair. But …Read more

I usually go for sulfate-free, but this is so gentle and non-stripping that it has become my go-to shampoo in heavy rotation. And who can argue with the price. I use the conditioner too which I think that I like even more.

My hair is thick, wavy and color treated and this conditioner is a godsend -- especially for the price! I find that it smooths, shines, controls frizzies, and I haven't experienced build-up. I do understand why it might be a bit much for people with thin, fine, oily hair. But for me, it's darned near perfection.
