I love this soap, it's all I use on my body. I've been using it for years and years (I grew up using Ivory but my mom and I switched when I was in my pre-teens because Ivory smelled too much of perfume). It doesn't irritate my skin or leave it feeling dry like other soaps. Dr. Bronners gave me a bad skin rash, and other perfumed ones left my skin feeling very tight. I'm now …Read more

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

This is the only facial sunscreen I can wear. It's tinted (which works with my fair skin tone, but would not necessarily work for everyone of course). It has a bit of a "sticky" feel which I LOVE. It doesn't run when my face sweats, so I never have had the problem of sunscreen burning my eyes. It provides a great base for a loose powder foundation and can even act by itself …Read more

Moisturizers - MAC Cosmetics - Complete Comfort Creme

This is my HG moisturizer and the only thing I can use on my very sensitive skin. It has very little smell (if any), and goes on thicker than most creams. (I tend to like this, since I also have dry skin). I go through about one tub per month, so the price is a bit costly given that (They're around $42 CAD per container). MAC offers the "back to MAC" program so you can recycle your …Read more

This loose powder foundation is amazing. I've been using it for almost a year and has not irritated my very sensitive skin at all. I have struggled with rosacea, acne, sensitive skin.. you name it (the doctors can't figure it out, either). This powder gives great coverage that can be layered, and is all organic. Plus, it comes in a bamboo case and you can order refills without having to …Read more

So far, I love this. I put it on my face last night before bed, and this morning it's already smoother and more even and feels way way better (and not greasy!). Yes, it's an oil, so right after putting it on it's greasy and oily but now it's all soaked in, and nice. I wouldn't use it as a day moisturizer though. The smell can be overpowering if you're sensitive …Read more

So first off, I think this is a great product - it really is. It goes on very smooth and doesn't settle into any lines or anything, which is great. I got color 113 and it was a little yellow for my pink skin, but blended well. The only reason I can't wear it anymore is because my skin is extremely sensitive and it made me break out everywhere, so I really just can't keep putting it …Read more

I used to love this. I really did. This review won't apply for the vast, vast majority (like.. 99.5%) of people, but if you have sensitive skin like me, maybe it'll help. As a preface, I have very sensitive skin and can use almost nothing on it: no sunscreen, no liquid foundation, no glitter (I shuddered at just writing that), no oils - nothing. For makeup, all I've been able to …Read more
