The tint is a neutral fair compared to other tinted sunscreens that tend to be pink/orange and too dark. It does not oxidize on my face or catch and look bad on dry bits. It doesn't dry down to be matte, so I powder it. Good protection, no obvious color, no irritation, no zits, doesn't dry my skin out. So far, it's a winner (I've been using it a few weeks). I'll likely …Read more

I'm kind digging this Bb.

The good: It's light enough, yellow enough, and has no hints of orange. It has some coverage and a physical sunscreen. It also seems to not break up and clump on my face. Plus the tube lets the right amount out and would be secure in a m/u bag or purse.

The bad: So far, the only downside is that the cream has an odor. It disappears …

I get this in translucent light (from Ulta). This offers light to medium coverage and can be used in lieu of foundation. The biggest plus is the mineral sunscreen. It's only SPF 16, but I use it to top off my SPF 30 moisturizer. It gets cakey if you use it over foundation or over-apply. I will repurchase. Pretty good stuff at a reasonable price.

Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

Feb/08/2017

I picked up a trial sized bottle of this (the pink one) at Ulta for $4. At night, I wash with a proper cleanser to remove the day's grime. In the morning, I've been swiping my face with this micellar water instead of washing. I also use it mid-day if I'm home with no makeup and feeling oily. It leaves my skin clean and soft. No major dry flakes or greasy coating. So far, no …Read more

I bought a liter of this condishiner and was excited to use it. First thought: the smell is amazing. Second thought: Why is my hair not detangling? Third thought: Why did my hair dry so frizzy? Unfortunately, I think I need to return this. Too bad, because the scent is very nice. For reference, I have medium length, colored, fine (but a lot of it) hair.

I bought this on Amazon after seeing the reviews and recommendations here. The texture and application is amazing! I loved this product for the first few days. After a while, my face started getting irritated and dry. It must be the alcohol content. I will use this up for sure... but won't buy again. Recommend for once in a while use (when you need your face unsticky and mu to look great) …Read more

Picked this up on a recent Whole Foods trip. My skin has been getting dry (from retinoids) and I was sort of ignoring the problem since everyone was saying your skin gets used to it. Mine didn't. Stayed dry and flaky. So I picked this up and put a good layer on that night before bed. No noticeable scent. Didn't sting my dry patches at all. And I woke up to soft, normal skin! No clogged …Read more

Great inexpensive product. I buy this in "fair/light" (which is a little hard to find). It is slightly yellow, which I love for redness. The "fair" is more pink-toned IMO and doesn't work as well for me. Your results may vary based on your undertone. I lightly dab it on (using the integrated brush) blemishes and on the broken blood vessels on the side of my nose. Then …Read more

Jul/02/2015

This is my HG shampoo/conditioner. I had small bottles and used them at the gym followed by an air dry. Every time I showered at the gym, my hair was fab. I thought it was the air dry. Then I ran out and got another s/c brand for gym and the great hair days went away -- so it was this s/c all along. I bought the bigguns at the Ulta liter sale and haven't looked back since. This leave hair …Read more

Every time I showered at the gym I had fabulous hair. For a while, I thought the gym had better water. Lol. Nope. I finally figured out it was this Wella shampoo and conditioner that I had in my locker. I never thought shampoo/conditioner could make that much of a difference. No fail soft hair with decent volume. Normally my hair is flat flat flat. I bought the liters from Ulta to have at home. I …Read more
