I have this in 1WN2. This is a nice, natural, everyday foundation for me. The coverage is minimal--it is a bit thin and watery, and just gives a soft evening of the skin. "My Skin But Better" kind of thing. I have had no breakouts from this, and it doesn't change throughout the day--no caking or color changes. I do keep a fuller foundation on had when I want a more …Read more

I've been using a sample of this in caramel, and just ordered the full size.

I have graying eyebrows, that are beginning to thin at the tail. I've tried other mascara-type brow products, but the colors just seem to be off and look unnatural. I had been using powder, but it looks just like what it is--powdered in brows. With this product, I *lightly* swipe some on and it …

I have nothing good to say about this product, unfortunately. It smells awful, it dried out my skin AND broke me out. I gave it a chance, thinking my skin would become accustomed to it, or maybe my skin was going through a bad phase, but no--it was the soap. After giving up on using it on my face, I tried to use it as a body soap--I got a huge pimple on my back and my LEG of all places. Yeah …Read more

This is just to much for my skin. No matter how gentle I tried to be, this is just too rough--I felt like I was tearing my face up. I finished up my tube as a body scrub.

First, these smell wonderful. I use them to freshen up on the days when I go to the gym first thing in the morning. But I don't find them useful for anything else. They leave a film on the skin, so I'm not comfortable using them as an after cleansing toner that I'd leave on my face all day long. They don't work well as a pre-cleanse make up remover, you'd have to use …Read more

I went on an Arcona buying spree last fall, and had some hits and misses. This one's a hit. The first few times I used this serum, my skin was quite dry the next day. But after a couple of weeks, I find that the morning after using this (twice a week), my skin looks great. The other retinol products I've used were in cream bases, and I found them to be heavy, and some were clogging …Read more

I love the idea of a hydrating serum, and the ingredients look wonderful, but for me, this wasn't very moisturizing, and was a bit irritating. I actually like the scent. Would work best for someone who needs very little moisture. This just didn't work for me.

I've been wearing makeup for more than 35 years (yikes!) and this is the worst mascara I've ever used. It does look nice on the lashes--no clumping, nice length and fullness. BUT---it smears and flakes something awful. I tried to make it work, using less moisturizer, powdering more, but it always ended up smeared on both my brow bone and underneath my eyes. And then there were the …Read more

This makes my hair so soft, smells so nice, and makes blow drying faster. I use two pumps (I love the pump!) and it tames frizz and adds such incredible softness, I just love the feel of it. It's light, so I don't have to worry about over doing it and ending up with greasy looking hair. It is a bit expensive, and because it's light, I go through it quicker than other serums …Read more

I use two pumps of this, along with a bit of serum (Moroccan Oil or the One and Only Argan Oil Treatment), and it keeps my hair smooth and frizz free without weighing it down. Adds a bit of control as well, making blow drying so much easier.
