BB Cream - Jane Iredale - Glow Time Full-Coverage Mineral BB Cream

Really wanted this to work. The color BB6 is perfect for my NC20-25 skin and just a tiny bit blended with my fingers over my sunscreen gives great coverage for my tiny spots and veins but does not look masky (the key is to use very thin layers and go over problem areas). It's yellow enough to cover any redness but doesnt look like egg yolk once it settles and blends in. Lovely natural …Read more

Hair Treatments - Olaplex - Olaplex step 3 (Home treatment)

YES! YES! YES! I will keep repurchasing Olaplex!

My hair has been 4 different colors in the past year and Olaplex has saved me from having a fried mess.

The home treatment (#3) is designed to be used at home between salon treatments (with #1 and #2) - that's how it works. And major moisturizing and conditioning products are to be used after rinsing and shampooing …

This is probably about as good as it gets for me afa protection, texture and not causing me to break out. I bought mine from FrenchCosmeticsForLess in April 2015.

The box says UVA 38/SPF 50+

It has 2 kinds of Tinosorbs plus chemical filters plus anti-inflammatories plus antioxidants. Doesnt sweat off during the day for me.

It has a nice satin finish - not …

Lovely finish and color, but leaves my acne-prone skin loaded with pimples after 2 days. Its the cyclopentasiloxane ... I figured I'd try it, what could it hurt? My skin, apparently. Such a shame because the first day I looked great. It was all downhill thereafter and I'm reaping the havoc it caused me trying to undo all the nasty pimples; even tho I double cleanse each night this …Read more

Shampoo - Unlisted Brand - Prive Formule Aux Herbes Concept VERT Shampoo

My hair is fine, thin and highlighted. Its in excellent condition thanks to Olaplex. This shampoo, altho it lathers well, does not seem to clean my hair. After rinsing it leaves my hair feeling like a silicone mess is on it - not clean at all. Using less, using more .. still the same problem.

I wrote to Joshua Jones on the Prive website contact page and he suggested exchanging it for …

Pressed Powders - Fusion Beauty - Ultraflesh Ninja Star 18 Karat Gold Dual Finish Moisturizing Powder - # Luminous

4.0

Feb/10/2015

What got me interested was the ninja star on the compact! Really flashy!
The powder inside the bulky compact is protected by a plastic flip cover and a cheap sponge is included. I'd have liked a thinner compact minus the chintzy sponge and carry my own retractable brush (which I do anyway).
For $23 at Strawberrynet, its a decent setting powder for touchups on the go. Has a nice …

Love that this does NOT contain cyclopentasiloxane, which is used in nearly everything anymore and causes cystic acne for me.

Used over my SS and before my NARS tinted moisturizer, it makes my skin look like satin but naturally so. Just brightens up my world!

Also comes in a Bronze shade for darker skins or when lighter skin wants a bit more color; both can be mixed together …

BB Cream - GUERLAIN - Lingerie de Peau BB Cream SPF 30

I use "Natural" for my NC20-ish skin and it works. A bit too warm but gives a nice "sunny" look to combat winter pale.

My skin can be dehydrated/dry in winter so I use my usual serums and sunscreen then a drop of oil before applying this with my fingers. I go over it lightly with a damp BeautyBlender to meld it into my skin for a glowy look. For a different look it …

Neck/Decollete Cream - Perricone MD - Firming Neck Therapy

5.0

Jan/12/2015

Its rare I find a readymade product I like. I make most of my own skincare except sunscreens. This product is an exception because it works and the prime ingredient is not available to small formulators for use.

I do facial exercise/massage, dermal needling, and use the right ingredients to maintain my skin, but the neck area is so hard to treat. At the first application I noticed the …
