This just didnt work for me. I've used three bottles and gave it a good go. I was really hoping it would replace my more expensive serums (SkinMedica). While this Collagen Serum didn't cause me any problems, I also didn't notice any positive impacts.

I've tried a number of Skin Actives products over the past year. I know they have a cult following - supposedly great …

Concealers - rms beauty - "Un" Cover-Up Foundation/Concealer

I use this as a foundation and have repurchased many times - it's a great product for me. I use shades 00 and sometimes 11. I use a damp beauty blender and blend it well. With this application, it offers sheer, but buildable coverage that evens out my skin and covers redness. For additional coverage, I go in with a small brush and spot conceal. It gives me dewy skin, that doesn't look …Read more

Tizo AM Replenish SPF 40 is a sunscreen with Zinc Oxide (16%), Ceramides, and antioxidants (Vitamins C and E). An esthetician recommended this.

I enjoyed using it, but will likely not repurchase. It's one of the better physical sunscreens I have used. It covered well, and offered good protection. The downsides for me are that it's tinted and didn't look great under …

Styling Products - Not Your Mother's - Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

This just made my hair crunchy, stringy, dry, and frizzy. I was hoping it would add some texture, but it just made my hair look horrible. I havent had this experience with other sprays. I didnt mind the smell - it's a fake coconut sunscreen smell, which is somewhat expected with a beach spray.

If it works for your hair, its a great bargain.

I have dry, dehydrated, aging skin and live in a dry climate (Los Angeles). So, I need a lot of moisture and am always on the lookout for great products. I liked this Hydro Boost gel-cream. I put this on clean, wet skin. Afterward, I lock-in the moisture with a heavy cream/ occlusive layer. It's simple and works well. I appreciate that I can purchase it easily at drugstores, Target, etc. …Read more

I used the clean & light bare version. It's inexpensive, worked well, smelled nice, and blended nicely into my hair when massaged in (blonde hair, darker hair may see residue). I was using the Batiste about twice a week. I try not to overuse it. However, after about a month, I noticed my scalp was a bit sore. It wasnt painful, but felt as if I had a tight/ high pony tail in for a bit …Read more

I know this is a loved product, but it just didn't work for me. I have dry and dehydrated skin. I used an entire bottle. As positives, I didn't have any negative reactions, it didn't pill, it worked well with other products, the packaging is great, and the price it low. However, it didn't help my skin; I didn't notice any positive impacts. I've tried other similar …Read more

Aug/26/2018

I could not get this to work for me and ended up tossing. It left me with clumpy and spidery lashes, instead of the "full fan effect" shown in the advertisements. I will not repurchase.

Pros:
- Cheap, easy to find

Cons:
- I dislike the brush. From the advertisements, I knew this was a plastic type brush instead of a traditional mascara brush.However, the …

Aug/26/2018

This didn't work for me and I will not repurchase. It's a thick cream that dries matte. I couldn't wear this under sunscreen or makeup. It doesn't play well with other products and pills. However, I did use this up by using it on no-makeup days. I liked that it offered a matte texture and made me look a bit better than I did without it. Because it is thick, it also seemed to …Read more

Aug/26/2018

This is a lovely dry oil. It's not a miracle product, but is a basic oil that does the job. What makes this product stand-out for me is the scent. It's the traditional Nuxe scent that I really enjoy. I use this on my body after a shower. I don't use it on my face or hair. I like the packaging. It's a simple glass bottle with a spray nozzle (100ml version). The spray is nice …Read more
