I just realized that I've never reviewed this gem, though I've been using it happily for years.

My skin is normal, slightly dry, & "mature," and this sunscreen is the most cosmetically elegant formula that I've ever used, by a wide margin. I am NC20, semi-light with yellow undertones. FWIW, the foundations that I prefer are yellow-toned and/or …

I read all of the reviews on Sephora about this new entry into the sunscreen arena, & the vast majority are 5-star raves, so even tho I'm not in the market for a new sunscreen, I decided to buy it so I could experience its cutting edge fabulousness first hand. (I'm not in the market cuz I love SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 - tinted, but I figured there's no …Read more

I meant to review this *ages* ago after I received a sample. As soon as the sample was gone, I bought a bottle & never looked back. Love this like crazy. The scent is beyond wonderful - seriously - they had me at the scent alone. I wish I could list the notes that are in it, but what I *can* say is that, to me, it smells like a walk, deep in the woods in California. (And the matching …Read more

Oct 6, 2015 EDIT: Dropped this down to 1 star and I *did* send it back. It continued crumble onto my cheek every time I used it. Inferior product.

After researching the hell out of this product, I selected shade #2 Sepia, and it's everything I'd hoped it would be - the shade, that is. It's a …

Sep/23/2015

This little gem is the game-changer of the decade as far as I'm concerned. I'm totally blown away by how simple it is to use, and how *completely* effective it is for hair removal. I'd read every review here, (& everywhere else!) so when it arrived I was ready to go. I won't repeat the directions for use, as they've already been written about (beautifully) in the …Read more

Jul/24/2015

I've had this for a while but haven't used it much because on my NC20ish, yellow-toned skin, it left a tell-tale white cast all around my eyes. However, I gave it another try today, & I patted it all around my eyes, generously. Afterwards, I patted on the tiniest amount of foundation (YSL LT TE), and WOW, what a fabulous combination. The Shiseido acted like a primer & a …Read more

NOTE: This review, and the one from SKYEFORTH are for Philosophy's "Back to Nurture Deeply Replenishing Oil Gelee" so if someone can change the title to that, it would be great, to avoid confusion with other Philosophy products in this line. Thanks!

EDIT Aug. 16, 2015
Sadly, I have to remove my 5-star rating. My original review (below) was written after I'd …

Also use Anastasia's Tinted Brow Gel & Brow Powder Duo; a tube of MUFE Aqua Brow (#10). My point is, I'll try/buy …Read more

OK, so I waited months & months for someone (anyone!) to review this relatively new shade, and it kept not happening, so I studied the few swatches online & bought it myself so I could review it for YOU. Yay!!!!!

I'm NC20ish & always wear yellowish foundation to cancel pink in cheeks.

Nov/12/2014

This is pure pine, my friends, and I adore it. It's fresh & clean & piney. I do not have a sophisticated sniffer, so I cannot go on & on about the base notes, etc. Suffice it to say that if you love the smells that surround you when you're picking out a christmas tree - this candle is for you. I'd planned to purchase Resine & Hiver, based on their descriptions, but …Read more
