I bought this because I was looking for a highlighter (that wasn't sparkly) and a concealer that would give a little more coverage. Initially I was disappointed because it was very heavy, so I played with it until it worked for me. I have extremely dry skin and have to lube up before my tinted sunscreen (mdsolarsciences) then concealer. I put a dot of this concealer (in snow) on the back …Read more

We were at the river for a long weekend and realized my husband had neglected to bring his swimsuit or any shorts. We ran up to the everything-Mart and I decided that my feet needed help and picked up this polish in "love" (a pale pink) and clear top coat. 1.97 each. Went on fine, even coats (better than Essie or opi), dried quickly. The next day I put on my keens for kayaking …Read more

This sunscreen/bb cream feels amazing. Matte/blurred finish, the light/medium blends perfectly with my very fair skin. Doesn't cover things that need concealer, but good for a no-makeup finish. I haven't spent much time in the sun since purchasing, but I do like that it's SPF 50 (my other daily bb cream is a 25, and I do burn). I feel like I'll be digging the end of the …Read more

I bought this last year because I absolutely loved their sunscreen that I'd bought in the past and I'd hoped for a tinted version so that I could skip foundation/bb cream. Nope. Pros- no burning at all. Great consistency. Price is high, but it's great sunscreen.
Cons- WAY TOO DARK. Ridiculously so. Even too dark during the summer. I need to find a darker-complected friend …

As a child, a cat scratched me above my lip and left a vertical scar. About 3-4 years ago, after my first whole 30, I lost about 10-12 lb and my face changed. Suddenly the cat scar combined with years of RBF gave me upper lip wrinkles. After using this serum for a week, those lines aren't as prominent! I am using 2-3 drops to cover my entire face, concentrating on my upper lip area and …Read more

I bought this in 1.0N, very fair neutral. I worried that it was too light, but I dot it on my (moisturized) face and blend with a foundation brush. I have been using a BB cream for several years, but have found that my early-mid 40s require a touch more coverage, This gives me a little more coverage but it's still my skin you notice, not the foundation. I will say that because I have …Read more

I love this product. I have bag and naturally red eyelids/under eyes that are worse with stress, dehydration, too much salt, poor sleep. A drop of this below each eye helps the puffiness go away. If I'm still puffy after an hour, I'll try a second drop on my finger, patting below each eye. I do not find that it dries out my eye area (and I have very dry skin), causes flakiness …Read more

I've been using this in conjunction with the Vitamin C 23% with HA, and I'm not sure which does the "work", but I've noticed definite tone changes and whereas in early spring I felt like my skin was beginning to show its age, now I feel like I have subtracted 10 years from my complexion. I'm interested in trying their straight HA, so I don't know if I'd …Read more

I've been using this in combination with the buffet for about 2 months. I don't know which product is doing the "work" but some new (yay middle age) broken capillaries have faded significantly with daily use. In March/early April, a bright red mark stood out even after makeup and concealer (I'm sure no one else could really see it, but I could). Now, it's barely …Read more

I'm stunned to report how much I love this very inexpensive concealer. I've used aveda for years, and some other high end concealers, and I think that this $5 concealer is BETTER than everything else I've used. I'm pretty minimal with foundation- I have been blessed with genetically good (but dry) skin, so I only cover spots and a little redness or dark areas around my deep …Read more
