I have thought about purchasing this product for almost 3 years and finally did it. My color is Sand and matches my skin very well. This is not a good product if sun protection is your primary objective (see the EWG's website). However, if you want nice looking skin with minimal effort, this product is a good choice.

Smell: slightly chemical-ish, like sunscreen, not …

I have sensitive skin that has just gone through a year of cystic acne caused by a variety of factors (hormones, products, stress, etc). I have tried drugstore sunscreens and have never been satisfied. I like this marie veronique sunscreen. I am 26 yrs old with olive skin. When I wear this product it acts as a foundation too. I like that it helps to conceal the red marks that are still fading …Read more

I bought this product after hearing about it from a youtube guru. I have used retinol and AHA products in the past but I had a major breakout which took a year to clear, and during this time I switched to gentle products and stopped wearing makeup. Now that my skin is finally behaving, I have decided to search for good products that will help me maintain my skin and keep it looking young (I am …Read more

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Medium Plus

I like this product... it looks so plain in the packaging but really gives the "skin finish." It does not look like powder sitting on the skin. There's no shimmer so it can be used all over the face. I have this product in "Medium Dark" or something like that, and I use it over my sunscreen. It doesn't have much coverage, but it's not meant to. I use it to set …Read more

I have naturally curly hair (very curly) which is straightened via thermal reconditioning (aka japanese straightening). Therefore although my hair is now straight, it still has some residual frizz. The strands f my hair are fine, but there are a lot of strands. The longest layers of my hair reach the middle of my back. Although I can tame the frizz with a flat-iron, I don't like using …Read more

Jul/09/2010

I have been on the search for the best sunscreen for my skin type and lifestyle. I spend a lot of time outside playing sports, so I need a lot of sun protection. Additionally, I need a sunscreen that works well under makeup and doesn't break me out. At first I really liked this product. My first impression is that the packaging is simple, which I like. Also, the price was acceptable (about …Read more

Liquid - Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup SPF 20 (2009 formulation)

this foundation caught my eye because of the SPF 20. I have sensitive skin and anything other than titanium dioxide as a sunscreen makes me itch/burn. The first color I purchased (60) was too light so I returned it. The next color down, 70, is the perfect color for me right now. In the morning I wear moisturizer (vanicream) and use a synthetic foundation brush to apply this foundation. The liquid …Read more

Originally i purchased the honey-flavored lipbalm by burts bees and hated the scent. the pomegranate flavor suits me much better while being just as moisturizing. i love the hydration it provides my lips. i use this at night before going to sleep. if there was a version of the pomegranate balm with SPF i would also use it during the day. it is a balm not a lipstick, and is not intended for …Read more

Lip Gloss - Neutrogena - MoistureShine Lip Soother in Shine

Jan/02/2010

I am generally not a fan of glosses because in my experience they do not provide moisture or SPF. My favorite lip moisturizer is the Burts Bees lip balm in "pomegranate", which I use every night. However it does not have SPF, and I have struggled to find a product that I can use during the day. Most lip products with SPF have a white cast, and can make lips look ghostly or greyish …Read more

I like this product a lot. I love "nude" lips and have been searching for an appropriate shade for me. I am a medium tone olive skinned woman of mixed race. Most "nude" shade lipsticks are too pale for me. I like the soft creaminess of this product, it goes on my lips so easily. A little goes a long way because it is very opaque. I like the fat pencil. I wouldnt use it as a …Read more
