What a great color. I was looking for a go-to everyday shade, after the last of my Soft Sell (a stellar discontinued Mac shade) ran out. A very patient salesperson let me line up Brave, Faux, Twig, Spirit, Mehr, and a few others (along with Capricious, which she threw in), along with CIYC and the latter won hands down. Others were too pink, or too orange, or to nude, or too blah, but this is just …Read more
I guess it's just me but this cleanser - which smells like grapefruit and is equally as abrasive - leaves my face red and burning. Very disappointed, as I liked the price point, generally like Alba Botanica products, and bought with high hopes on the basis of all the positive reviews. Oh well.
Within a few recent weeks, I bought this product, along with Milani's Rose Femme and MAC's Cosmo lipsticks, all online (based on reviews and descriptions) and all because I was trying to replace a discontinued MAC shade called Soft Sell. Without a doubt, of the three, this NYX lippie is my favorite. It's a great all-around shade that's a little darker than my lips without …Read more
In my need to replace a discontinued shade - Soft Sell - and unable to get to a MAC store, I searched online and decided that Cosmo is the closest currently sold shade (more so than the similar but different Brave, Twig, Velvet Teddy, and others). I tried it the second it turned up on my doorstep and I'm quite happy. Not the same as the dearly departed Soft Sell - a little more pink - but …Read more
Not the perfect color for me - just a tad on the dark side - but very close to perfect. Beautiful package, consistency and price (bought on Amazon), and I'll probably end up using it to the last drop unless I find my HG color (61 years old and still searching).
I have no idea if this is doing anything - in the long term - but every time I use it, I love it. It smells great and feels wonderful going on. The bottle is beautiful and each pump puts out the perfect amount. Great feeling every time.
Treatments - AMBI - Fade Cream
I started using AMBI Fade Cream for Normal Skin on my hands a few weeks ago for one reason - to get rid of and prevent age spots. I'm closing in on 60 and I have only one spot but I'd love to lighten it or have it disappear altogether. The problem is, I probably won't be able to truly review this product until I finish the tube altogether since I'm pretty sure that …Read more
This products has very mixed reviews that run the gamut from "Hate this," to "HG." I don't really get it since I find this moisturizer to be innocuous, basic, solid, inoffensive, and pretty darn good. I've been using it for a few months on days when I won't be going outdoors or needing a sunscreen and I have no complaints at all. It does the job. My sensitive …Read more
Like the previous reviewer I was given a sample of this moisturizer but unlike her I have serious reservations after a few uses. I found the cream very rich and too creamy for my combination skin. In fact I blame this moisturizer for a nasty pimple, the likes of which I haven't had in years. Am I jumping to conclusions? Possibly. But this product is the only new thing I've added to my …Read more
