Love this stuff, has so many uses. My dry, sensitive skin loves it:

- Mix one drop with your foundation to give it a dewier finish and keep your skin soft all day (I use a matte foundation, mixed with 1 drop of rosehip oil. The result is still matte, but glowier)

- Mix 2 drops with moisturizer to kick your moisturizer up a notch (I usually do this at night)

I initially tried this simply because I received a sample as a gift with purchase when I was buying some Estee Lauder foundation. The sample was big enough to allow me to apply it for about 2 weeks, and I was really shocked at the results, as I honestly had not been expecting much. I have have always had texture and tone issues with my skin, due to the fact that my skin is sensitive (often …Read more

This product is an exfoliator with AHA, meant to be used 1-2 times a week, at night. It is not a replacement for a night cream that you would use on a nightly basis. I love using an AHA exfoliant rather than a scrub to exfoliate my skin as AHA stimulates collagen production in addition to removing dead skin, and will not scratch your skin or damage pores, as all those scrubs containing peach …Read more

HALLELUJAH!!!! I have struggled for years with extremely dry, chapped and peeling skin on my lips and nose in the winter. Also the skin on my cuticles and fingers would get so dry they would crack and bleed. Most moisturizers did nothing, or just made it worse, especially on my face. Ditto with lip balms, moisturizing oils, ointments. NOTHING worked, until I picked up a tube of Aquaphor on a …Read more

This is my go-to foundation in the winter, although I find it a little greasy in the hot humid summer months, so it is definitely NOT for people with oily or acne-prone skin. My skin is quite dry in the winter, and I love the coverage (medium-full) and finish (I would say semi-matte. I still lightly powder it). It's bed to apply this to recently cleansed and moisturized skin to make it …Read more

I have tried several minerall foundations, and this one was awful. Poor coverage (and I do have experience building coverage with other minera foundations), shiny, not long lasting at all.

Only positive thing that came out of blowing my money on this was discovering the Body Shop makeup brush line. GREAT kabuki brushes! I use the smaller kabuki (blush) brush for applying my other …

I must say, this product was a pleasant surprise for me. I have used a few different mineral foundations (although not every one on the market by any means) and this is my favourite one by far. Coverage is buildable, but may take some practice - do not give up if the first time you use a mineral foundation you don't get good results. The key is a good quality kabuki brush, and patience - …Read more

I'd been using Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion because I liked the idea of having a moisturizer/sunscreen/AHA product all in one, but my skin didn't like it at all - lots of redness, irritation and breakouts, possibly due to the sunscreen. So I decided to try this, and I'm happy I did. It disappears into your skin and doesn't cause excessive irritation. My skin was much …Read more

Nov/22/2005

I just got a sample of this with my order, and I will definitely be ordering more. My skin is very difficult to please - painfully dry and flaky on my cheeks, nose and forehead yet stubbornly oily and breakout prone on my chin and neck. My skin is also sensitive, which makes it even more difficult. Usually I struggle to keep everything balanced, but it always seems that cleansers either …Read more

My mother recently got a free bottle of Soft Musk. I remember wearing it in highschool when I didn't know any better, but smelling this now I think it has that "Avon perfume" smell that most Avon perfumes seem to have. Not offensive, but kind of cheap and nothing special at all.
