This is my absolute favorite. I buy it whenever I can, but the bin for this at Whole Foods is often empty--crap, sold out again! I agree with another reviewer that it can feel dry when applying, but I think it is because the ingredients are natural. (Have you ever used pure natural shea butter? You sort of have to melt it in your hands first before applying it or else it is crumbly.) This works …Read more

Sunscreen - California Baby - SPF 30+ SUNSCREEN

Dec/24/2009

I really like this sunscreen, but I wouldn't use it for everyday. It makes my face break out. (so I switched back to the Shiseido sun protection foundation stick spf 35 for my face. It is not natural, but I couldn't handle the breakouts.) I still love this California Baby sunscreen for laying out, etc. On a recent trip to Aruba, I packed this and a bottle of UV Natural. This is easier …Read more

I like this, but use it for my neck and back of my hands. For my face, I have been using the Shiseido sun protection stick foundation, spf 35. The California baby spf 18 made my face break out a little bit, but I still think it is a great product for the rest of me.

I burn easily. I wore this on a recent trip to Aruba. I spent a week in the sun, and was in and out of pools and the ocean all day. Got my face wet many times and was sweating. This makeup was the only sun protection that I applied to my face, and I did not burn. Further, I barely even tanned on my face. Wow. Great stuff.

Lotions/ Creams - California Baby - Super sensitive everyday lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/08/2007

Although the target for this product is mothers/babies, I use this as my everyday facial lotion. It is very light. I have combination skin, and my guess is that this might not be enough for someone with dry skin. I like that it is a "natural" product free of many chemicals lately getting bad press and also no chemical preservatives. It says no "parabens, sodium benzoate, benzoic …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Crabtree & Evelyn - Naturals Botanical Body Butter - Cocoa Butter and Nutmeg and Cardamom

I keep going back to this when other lotions don't do the job properly. This moisturizes very, very well without feeling greasy. The smell, to me, is almost like a spicy-vanilla-y...something...hard to describe as others have said. Very lovely smell. And the smell lasts a LONG time. For example, I put this on yesterday morning right after my SO left for work at 7 am. When he got home at 6:30 …Read more

Concealers - theBalm Cosmetics - TimeBalm Concealer

I'll probably never have to buy another one since it will take me the rest of my life to use this one up. This concealer is pretty good. I like the coverage, but don't like the thickness. It is hard to blend unless I put a lot of moisturizer underneath. This is what I grab if I have an enormous blemish to cover up.

Lip Treatments - Fusion Beauty - LipFusion XL 2X Micro-Injected Collagen and HA Lip Plumping Therapy

Jun/07/2007

This is okay for a lip gloss, but it didn't plump my lips. It tingled and made my lips very shiny, but nothing else. I get better results from rubbing at my lips a bit with a loofah cloth to slightly agitate the skin and then applying any brand lipstick or gloss. I am upset with myself for paying $50.00 for an average lipgloss that doesn't even smell or taste good to me. (Should have …Read more

Jun/07/2007

I recently purchased this from Ocean Potion's website as I was interested in trying another physical "natural" sunscreen. Compared to other physical sunscreens (since I think it is like comparing apples and oranges to compare physical to chemical sunscreens) here is what I think:
(1) It did protect my skin equal to others I've tried but with a LOT more of a white cast on …

Sunscreen - Linda Sy - ZincO

Jun/06/2007

I use the tinted version. I tried this long ago and at first didn't like it. In my recent search for a good physical sunscreen, I decided to give it another try. I now like it. It does leave me shiny, and it doesn't stay on my upper lip when sweating, but overall this performs better than other physical sunscreens I have tried. When I am planning to really sweat, I use UV Natural and …Read more
