This smells like candied grapefruit mixed in with marshmallow. I think it’s great. Sweet foody or fruity fragrances usually don’t appeal to me but I really like this one. I use a grapefruit body spray and then apply this in a small amount after. It has a girly but clean feel to it. It’s lack of popularity here surprises me because I don’t see it as too far out of step with current fragrance …Read more

Brows - CLARINS - Eyebrow Kit "Pro Palette"

Created with Sketch.

Oct/07/2018

I’ve been having difficulty lately finding the correct shade for brows since I’ve allowed my hair to gray naturally. This palette has been so helpful. To get the appropriate brown shade, I mix the blonde and the black shade. The brown color is quite warm so I haven’t used it for brows. I have used this for eyeshadow and they perform well in that regard and the highlight shade is subtle. This will …Read more

Cleansers - CLARINS - One-Step Facial Cleanser (with Orange extract)

Oct/07/2018

I have repurchased this. This is a bi-phase type cleanser that I use on my entire face to loosen up and remove makeup. I follow up with a foaming cleanser. It is similar to micellar waters, but this one leaves a bit of a slippery film and so to me it feels less stripping and drying. It is so expensive but since it is working I will continue to purchase as I have not found anything that I like …Read more

Foundations - CLARINS - True Radiance

For dry skin, this is wonderful. There is shine in it, some kind of shimmer or whatnot that reminds me of the old Stila illuminating liquid foundation but this is done better. For me, this is best applied with fingers over a silicone primer of some type. Gives a natural, finished look to the skin. Seems to last through the work day. If I don’t powder my face, it can look shiny for the first …Read more

If you were a fan of the Max Factor pancake makeup, then you might like this also. I haven't used it often because cake foundation can be unforgiving if you have drier skin. My skin is becoming less dry and more normal so I thought I would give cake makeup another try.

I had to order this online and I chose my color as PC-36 Light Tan. I am NC20 and this is a good match for me …

Jun/06/2016

I happen to like a thicker cream. This is crisco. I've always had difficulty finding a cream at the drugstore that has the thickness that I like and can get from Clarins but this works pretty well. I think it's reasonably priced but I don't think that the ingredients are super special except for the ceramides which have repaired the moisture barrier on my face. I think the …Read more

Cleansers - Avon - Care Soothing Cold Cream Cleanser

Mar/13/2016

This is a wonderful cold cream. It is not as thick as Pond's but just as fragranced. It is full of all the cold cream goodies, mineral oil and the like. The jar appears small but the product is affordable. I put this on, rub it in and let it sit for a minute to break down all the makeup and sunscreen. Then I wipe off with a warm washcloth. I more often than not follow up with a 2nd …Read more

Sunscreen - Alba Botanica - Very Emollient Sunblock SPF 30

Mar/13/2016

Thick and white. My kind of sunscreen. Emollient in that it won't cause the skin to become dehydrated and emollient in that it will keep a sheen on the skin unless your skin is dry to very dry. I don't mind it. It is tenacious, and works as a makeup primer for powder foundation. It's affordable. If I had any complaints, it would be that it is so thick that applying the …Read more

This and a stippling brush makes for a flawless finish. I have tried applying it with a damp sponge but got too heavy of a coverage for my liking. I recommend a brush and a light hand. I also use a little pore filling primer beforehand so that this doesn't sink into pores. I am NC20 skintone and ME1 is a perfect match. The brush that I am currently using is a MAC 187.
