Love this! For a few years this has been my go-to blush. I have yellow-based, Mediterranean olive skin and this shade looks too light in the pan, but it gives a perfect healthy glow. Gives me a dewy pop of color, lasts all day, great for travel, has no scent. It's perfect with sheer foundation or full coverage....I like to do a fresh face with sheer foundation, then I tap a couple clean …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

Purity? Tested on animals. Parabens. F D&C yellow #5. How they came up with the name "Purity" is perplexing...
This cleanser smells funny and has more parabens and coloring than my skin wants. It leaves my skin feeling slimy and causes break outs. Very misleading name...

Treatments (Face) - Kate Somerville - Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment

I've used this about 6 times. It doesn't burn or irritate my skin when it's on, as many others have complained of. I find the smell delicious, like clove and oranges! I barely feel the exfoliation, as the granules are so fine. After using, my fine lines have definitely become less visible for a couple days, and my makeup remains fresh looking on my skin all day.
BUT, and a BIG …

Cruelty free! Best eye cream I've ever used, hands down. For years I've used this day and night, and it leaves my eye area perfectly dewy and plump all the time. Gives a light sheen. I've strayed a couple times to samples of Estee Lauder and other newer brands just to compare. But nothing plumps my few, teeny tiny wrinkles like this one. It's light but rich, has no odor, but …Read more

Wow. Polishes my oily, acne prone skin incredibly well. It's not fizzy at all, but more like a granular powder....more like Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, but the exfoliating granules in Nude don't dissolve like in Dermalogica's, which makes it more effective as an exfoliant for me. Smells sweet, and seriously leaves my skin feeling like a baby's rear! Love it!

Not a fan. The envelope says "Free from parabens, fragrance, dyes and mineral oils", which sounds great until you see that BHT is the 4th ingredient!!!
It's a super wet mask and you're not supposed to rinse the excess serum off after you remove the mask. But it was running down my face, BHT and all, so I wiped it off and woke up the next morning with awful cystic acne.

No animal testing, no parabens ~ yeah!
I LOVE the smell of this - 3 spritzes are a great pick me up during a flight or road trip. Yes, it's hydrating. My main use for this is really to wake up and refresh while traveling - the aroma is deeply lovely. Perfect little travel size. Only complaint is that the plastic cap always breaks.

UPDATE: The ingredients listed on MUA are incorrect and DO include multiple parabens. Ulta and Nordstrom's websites are also incorrect. Maybe they changed their formula.

Aqua (Water, Eau), Glycerin, Paraffinum Liquidum (Mineral Oil, Huile Minérale), Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alcohol, Olus Oil (Vegetable Oil, Huile Végétale), Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Carthamus …

Not a fan of Lancome's animal testing.
This really plumps up my wimpy eyelashes - it's actually shocking. The trick is to let it dry completely before applying your mascara. I've made the mistake several times of applying mascara while Cils Booster is wet, and it simply doesn't boost my lashes unless it dries first. Nice little applicator lets you detail your lashes …

YIKES! 1st time EVER coloring my minimal grays...I've been resisting because I LIKE my natural hair color - medium brown with lots of natural blonde and red highlights from the sun. So I did loads of research before buying this. Used it on day old hair so it would "stick" better (as advised online), covered all grays thoroughly, left on for 20 minutes just to make sure it would …Read more
