This product hydrates my skin like no others. The texture is balmy which may feel a bit heavy at first but it sinks in nicely without residue, even in European heatwave. This keep my skin moisturized for the whole day (even up to 48 hours) and makes it super soft. I sometimes get irritation from dryness during the change of season and this helps a lot. It didn't help when I got allergic …Read more

I have 2C canopy with 2A/B underlayer, coarse texture, low-normal porosity, low-normal elasticity and low density hair.

After growing out my short bob a bit for 9-months, I decided it was too long (collarbone length) and got a chop 2 weeks ago, back to a short bob. I envisioned my hair to be a bit tousled and volumized (think French girls' relaxed tousled hair), but I have low …

Aug/02/2015

Coloring: Golden medium/tan - NC35-42
Shade purchased: 35 Deep

I read somewhere that, for my undertone, it's best to choose corrector/concealer that has salmon undertone that's slightly darker in shade than overall skintone. I didn't want to bother with fussy application of cream corrector. I found shade …
