Foundations - Avene - High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50

Nov/17/2010

I received this as a gift with purchase ( full size ) and can't comment on price. What I can comment on is, my love for this powder. It is identical to Benefits Some-Kind-A-Gorgeous! The only difference is, Avene's cream to powder has a SPF50 ( Benefits doesn't ). It starts out as a creamy, silky luciousness and dries down to a nice powder finish. Perfect for my NC20 dry …Read more

Cleansers - Glytone - Step-Up Cleanse Mild Cream Wash

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/06/2010

I've been using this for about 5 months now and really like it. My skin type is DWSP and never had an issue with irritation or burning. It does sting when first applying, but it goes away after rinsing. Because of the acid content, those with sensitive skin may want to use this once or twice a week. I use it once a week. It does an excellent job of sloughing away dead skin and the proof is …Read more

Cleansers - FANCL - Mild Cleansing Oil

Sep/16/2010

I was looking for a change from my DHC cleanser, so I ordered this. I can't write enough positives about this cleanser. It is fragrance free and is a very light oil. It rinses clean with no traces of sunscreen behind ( my reason for using cleansing oils ). It left my skin feeling super soft to the touch. The DHC does has a slight musky smell ( nothing offensive ) and is a heavier oil, so …Read more

Cleansers - NIA 24 - Gentle Cleansing Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/30/2010

I use many of the Nia24 products, but this one didn't cut it for me. I bought it a few months ago and got it thru SkinStores 20% off sale. The 5oz. tube was reasonably affordable at $24.00. It is a cold cream cleanser with a less than thick consistency. The tube makes it easy to dispense. I found it slightly irritating ( mild burn ) and not exactly sure what ingredient(s) caused that …Read more

Aug/17/2010

Last year, I bought the Jane Iredale kit for medium skintones that contain @ least 8 small tester type products. Its a good way to try a new product, and each item last for about 6-8 weeks depending on how oftened it is used.



Mine contained the Amazing Base in Natural ( color ) foundation SPF 20 loose mineral powder. It goes on like any loose mineral makeup in a messy …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Telescopic Mascara

Aug/07/2010

I'm surprised by the mediocre reviews. I love, love this mascara. I agree the brush is flimsy ( took off 1 lippie ), I get great volume and length from using this. Makes my lashes very long and don't experience any smudging or clumps. I bought the dark brown shade, because black mascara's look fake on me. I rate this equal to my other favorite mascara...Lancome's Definicils …Read more

Shampoo - Nick Chavez - Killer Body Thickening ( sulfate free )

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2010

In my never ending search for a "good" sulfate free shampoo, I might had found one. I recieved this in a kit ( shampoo, conditioner & styling foam ) for around $35.00. That breaks down to around $11.50 per product. I love how this comes out as a mousse and foams up to pure luxury. The shampoo rinses out clean w/ a nice smell. The conditioner is also a mousse that foams slightly. My …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Juara Skincare Rice Facial Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/28/2010

I've used the Juara Candlenut body cream and loved it. I had been putting off trying the Rice Face cleanser and now I'm sold. It's not drying or stripping and afterwards my skin feels so soft. I recommend getting it thru Skinstores 20% off sales. Regular price for this is around $25.00 for 4.75oz. Just a small amount ( highly concentrated ) will last for a long time. A++

Sunscreen - EltaMD - UV Physical Broad-Spectrum SPF 41 - Tinted

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2010

I've been a Dr.Denese SPF30 tinted moisturizer devotee for some time, but was looking for a change. I like how the Elta41 dries to a matte finish and gives a sheer coverage. My only complaint is the slightly chalky look and feel it leaves on my skin. I'm a light-medium skintone. The biggest plus ( + ) is the excellent UVA/UVB protection of 9% zinc and titanium dioxide ingredients ( …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Renova - generic Rx

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/23/2010

I bought and use the generic brand from MedMex. Inexpensive it is, but found the Nia 24 works better for me. Nia 24 contains a sufficient amount of A and other "goodies" that makes my skin look great. Wanting to cut financial corners, I believe the generic Renova only works on a small scale. I started with the 0.025 ( second level ) and have experienced mild irritation and peeling …Read more
