Sunscreen - La Roche-Posay - Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid

Was having problems with sunscreens stinging, burning and causing rashes so my allergist recommended this to tide me over while my skin calmed down. Ordered from Amazon for $24. for 1.7oz/50ml so it is very expensive. Very light weight almost watery in texture which makes it easy to apply. Probably the easiest sunscreen I have ever applied, it goes on like a moisterizer. It does leave a white …Read more

Clearly I am in the minority here but I hated this conditioner because of its strong patchouli smell. Read the great reviews here and got three samples. Three hours after using I went home for lunch and got back into the shower to rewash my hair to get rid of the patchouli smell, it was that over-powering. When I asked my co-workers if I smelled different (we are a close bunch :) they asked me …Read more

This has become a HG product for me. Think I am on my 5th one. Excellent matte color, goes on smooth and lasts all day. I am pale and find that I grab this to wear it alone when I just want a natural & everyday look. Use it as a base when I am going use more than one shadow or a liner. Think I started buying this about (gulp) 20 years ago when I got my first professional job. Probably …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Salux Nylon Japanese Bath Towel

Apr/01/2012

Think I must be the only person in the MUA universe who did not like the Salux cloth. Found this to be way too harsh and scratchy for my skin. Tried using with no presure and with a thick moisture packed shower gel but this cloth just grated up my skin leaving it red, blotchy and anything but smooth. Was not good for my sensitive skin. Found it is good for scrubbing shower tiles so my $5 did …Read more

This is one of those products that making it "new and improved" has ruined it. Had bought this shampoo two times and a bottle for my niece who bascially lives in a swimming pool and we loved it!! It cleaned without stripping. leaving our hair moisturised but not weighed down and really shiny with a healthy to the touch feeling. Not easy to do for hair that is soaked in pool chemicals …Read more

Conditioner - Modern Original Products (MOP) - mixed greens conditioner

Thick conditioner that is annoyingly hard to get out of the bottle and leaves my hair dry. Bought this because my stylist recommended but bought for 1/2 price, $8, on clearance at a Beauty Way. Have very fine, thin, wavy/curly hair and this conditioner weighs it down while leaving it feeling dry especially at the ends. When a shampoo or conditioner leaves my hair dry I usually end up with fly …Read more

Styling Products - Modern Original Products (MOP) - Lemongrass Lift Volume Spray

Apr/01/2012

Have very fine, thin, wavy/curly hair and in the dry winter months it can look blah and flat but with many odd pieces sticking out at different crazy angles (think finger in light socket electrified hair). Lemongrass Lift applies sparingly to the roots gives my hair some life and brings the run away pieces back into a managable orbit. Found that applying too much or to end of hair makes my hair …Read more

Count me in as another fan! Great for chapped lips, cuticles and sore faces. Bought this when traveling (instead of my stand by Weleda Skin Food) when my cheeks were getting raging red and raw from the cold wind and snow and just love it! You do have to warm it up between your hands but once you do just rub gently and your skin feels sooooo much better.

Apr/01/2012

If I could stand the smell I think I would really like this product. After reading lots of positive comments about Embryolisse on MUA's Skin Care Board I decided to give it a try as a primer. I patch tested half a dime size dab on half of my jaw line every other day for two weeks and it was fine. I have senstive skin and am very prone to allergic reactions so many products do make it …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Stila - One Step Correct: Skin Tone Correcting & Brightening Serum

2.0

Apr/01/2012

Bought this primer because was looking for a non-silicone hydrating primer and liked the added plus that it would tone down redness. Found this inadequate for hydrating and did absolutely nothing for redness. Put on one side of face and not one tiny speck of difference in redness or color between side of face with primer and naked side. On the plus side it sinks right into skin so not slippery …Read more
