I recently bleached and colored the bottom third of my hair pink, so I'm changing up almost all the hair products I use. Obviously this product has previously HG status to a lot of people, but I should have glanced at most recent reviews also. I have been using this every few days for 3 weeks - I spray sparingly, comb through, and spray the ends.
It does not improve the texture of my …

I have been using this as a facial moisturizer for at least a year and it does not break out my sensitive dry skin (I still get occasional zits but not from this) - my dryness is probably why I get away with being relatively generous applying it (?) and it feels nice when my face feels naked after washing it lol. I only have to wait a few minutes before I can apply my foundation over it (liquid …Read more

This gentle cleanser has a nice lotion-y texture and is effective at removing makeup (doesn't take away my mascara completely - it does give me raccoon eyes but i just wipe that away with some Shiseido facial cotton and BAM done) and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Yay fragrance free! A little blurb from Beautypedia's review: "contains several ingredients that mimic the …Read more

I needed something soft to wipe off my eye makeup after washing my face. A towel is too rough and all makeup remover pads I've tried irritate my eyes/sensitive skin. I ordered these from Amazon after reviewing this site and paula's choice beautypedia. They came in basically a soft ziploc bag without a way to reseal it - so that's why the packaging is low. No problem though because …Read more

I use this on my body while showering and it helps relieve and prevent irritation. I use a lot of lotion on my skin afterward, and I have found it doesn't get itchy as often (happens for no clear reason). It's awesome!

I got it in the lightest shade and it made my skin look kinda tan, in a good way. Just adding some on my neck makes it look natural. It blends so easily, has good coverage, and evens out my skin tone, helping with redness. I didn't use it until I got my hair colored - it's a carmelly, bronzey strawberry blonde and I hate it but can't change it for a few weeks, so this is REALLY …Read more

This crap angered me to tears. DO NOT BUY IT! It's a sticky mess (on me, and on the container so you can't put the top back on) and isn't worth the time to rip off half the hairs. It irritates the skin so you can't try to get the hairs it leaves behind, and the tiny bottle of oil doesn't help much, to soothe the skin or remove wax that's left behind (or that drips on …Read more

This is a good summer foundation imo. It has a slightly dewy finish and is medium to full coverage. It doesn't feel cakey, even when you apply it badly and it looks like a mask. The best way I've found to apply is with a sponge, dabbing, focusing on parts of the face at a time. A foundation brush is ok too but the one I have makes it look streaky so I have to fix that with my fingers. A …Read more

Too bad I can't give this a zero...
First, the consistency/texture of this stuff is just gross. It's like a thin film. I can see how some would think it's "soft" or "silky" but it really isn't - at least not in a good way. Application is inconsistent (can't get a good layer on). I have a really small version of the green corrector. It does nothing …

My skin:
My body can get really itchy and irritated, don't know why :( I used Jergen's Ultra Healing moisturizer for a while, but it stopped helping. >_< For a few months I've been using Aveeno Skin Relief and it hasn't helped much.
My face is dry and really sensitive, so finding a moisturizer that doesn't irritate it somehow is challenging. I have …
