I love the smell. Sulfate free and no fungal triggers as per skincarisma.com I check everything now.
Nice packaging with a pump. Can be hard to find and be sure to get the reformulated newer packages. The older/original bottles have sulfates. Purchased from SDM online for $7.99 cdn for 10 oz bottle. I want to try the conditioner and hopes it smells just as wonderful.
No parabens, dyes or …

A little goes a long way. I take a Q-tip and dip once into ELF tube. Apply around nose and any spots. Blend well and immediately. Covers broken caps around nose and any red spots. Yes, the "camo" name is appropriate. Heavy full coverage.

Fungal safe as per simpleskincarescience,com blog. No fungal triggers when checked on skincarisma.com ingredient filters.

Love this for hair!

Ingredients:
C13-16 Isoparaffin.

Great products. This was the first mineral foundation powder I tried. Samples were .35 each (over ten years ago). I did discover a very nice blush. BUT she is rude and is lacking in customer service skills. I purchased samples and then one order with full size product. Numerous complaints over the years on delphi mineral forums about her not answering emails, etc. People just wanted the product …Read more
