This is my go to foundation primer. I originally was attracted to this primer because of its treatment properties and love the way my face feels after I apply. I have found that the key in application is the amount. I usually use a small pearl sized drop, rub finger tips together and apply to my face. I allow a couple of minutes for it to settle into my face before applying make up. During the …Read more

Cleansers - Fresh - Soy Face Cleanser

For reference I have dry/combination skin. I am probably on about my 3rd purchase of this product and absolutely love it. It is my daily morning cleanser - without fail. I found the scent clean - certainly not offensive as has been noted by other reviewers. I use about a nickel-sized amount on my wet face during my morning shower. It rinses easily and I do not use a toner afterward. My skin feels …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 cleanser

This is my go to evening facial cleanser. My complexion type is usually combination/dry depending on the season and this cleanser is not harsh or drying. I find it removes all traces of make-up including mascara without stripping my face. I originally bought a small travel size for vacation and liked it so much that I purchased the largest size available. My 3 adult daughters are in love with …Read more

I love this stuff!I Enough that I am on my third bottle. While I have to admit the texture took a little getting used to due to the products tackiness - but it is so worth it. The trick is to use only a tiny amount and allow a few minutes before applying makeup. I find it to be the perfect canvas for my concealer. It fills in those fine lines and allows for smooth coverage.

Primer/ Corrector - Hourglass Cosmetics - Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15

I use this primer during the summer months and No. 28 when my skin is feeling a little dry. Unlike some other reviewers I have not had a problem with breakouts nor the whitish cast others have noted. It provides a great canvas for all my foundations. I do believe this gives my foundation some "staying power" during the day.

I was extremely hopeful for this foundation - unfortunately it just did not deliver. The coverage is definitely light and at my age I need a bit more. It only provided about 6 hours of coverage. I used it over my Hourglass Mineral Primer and that didn't seem to help. I have had tinted moisturizers that lasted longer! The color match was great but certainly not enough to sell me on this …Read more

Absolutely love it! The texture is a little different but blends easily and you also don't need much product to get a nice finish. It leaves my face velvety without looking heavy. I am using #2 for my medium olive complexion and the color blends very well. I do use a foundation brush to help with blending and just the lightest dusting of powder to set everything. Although I love the …Read more

OMG!! I think I am in love. Let me start with saying I change foundations all the time and have never committed to any one product in my quest for the perfect color match, texture, coverage, etc. When you throw in seasonal changes forget it - I think I have about 8 product lines on the shelf right now. Everything from mineral powders to liquid. Well I think my wandering days are over. I am now 3 …Read more

I was extremely disappointed with this product. The oil-free version of LM's tinted moisturizer was the first product I tried of LM. There was definite oxidation between the time they applied it and my trip home. When I returned the moisturizer a national MUA was at the LM counter and she demonstrated the normal amount of oxidation that occurs with this product. She suggested the original …Read more

I love this stuff!! Since I commute about an hour daily I brush it on my arms, neck and chest as I am driving. I keep it in my center console so it is available whenever I need it. I've now bought it 3 times. Haven't had any problems with the brush or packaging. Just remember to pull straight down to withdraw the brush - works perfectly no spills!
