It can be difficult to find lipsticks that flatter extremely cool, fair skin tones. I’ve had quite a lot of success with Burt’s Bees lipsticks, and own several shades: Lily Lake, Brimming Berry, Juniper Water and Fuschia Flood.

Some have complained about the sheerness/natural finish of these, but they are right up my alley.

It’s does improve the overall texture of my skin. I use it 2-3 times per week in the shower and notice a difference. But it’s not *amazing*. I removed points for packaging because my tube started to crack along the sides.

I’m not sure what ingredient is making the magic happen; all I know is that my skin is so much happier when I use this stuff. It makes my skin glowy, fresh, radiant. Makeup is a breeze to apply. Sebaceous filaments and skin irritations are minimized. HG.

I’m on my zillionth bottle of this stuff. Have used high-end, low-end and and all other price points in between. This stuff is gentle. It works. It doesn’t strip my skin or irritate it, and it successfully removes all traces of makeup. I will always have a bottle of this in my bathroom. Bonus points: The price can’t be beat. It’s about $12 CAD for a generously sized bottle that lasts me, on …Read more

I have this in three shades: Devil’s Food Cake (which reads as vampy and dark in the tube but applies as a sheer medium berry); Raspberry Tart (a sheer violet with pink tones); and my fav, Cranberry Biscotti - the most gorgeous cranberry/cool berry red, which leaves a lovely deep stain. The smell is mild and somewhat sweet, and the formula is slightly tacky, but neither the smell or the feel are …Read more

It’s the perfect not-quite-nude lip on my very translucent, NC15 freckled skin. A very wearable cool plummy shade despite looking somewhat brown in the tube. Don’t let appearances fool you! It’s sheerer nature allows quite a bit of your natural lip tone to come through. Will always hav a tune of this from now on!

So good, I will never be without this product. I recently ran out and was unable to purchase for several weeks, and the difference in my skin was astounding. Tone was diminished, wrinkles were returning, makeup more difficult to apply. Within three days of using this again my skin is glowing and I’m getting compliments on my complexion.

Although my skin is sensitive, I have no …

Treatments (Face) - Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream with Retinol & SPF 15

When I ran out of my beloved Rapid Wrinkle Repair Daytime, I decided to purchase this as an alternative because a) I love Neutrogena b) spf c) It contains retinol like the RWR. d) it was $20 cheaper!

Big mistake! Within days my fairly tolerant skin was covered with large cyst-like pimples which left scarring. This also has a slightly irritating chemical scent that have me a headache …

Admittedly, I’ve never had a problem attaining volume, but I bought this hoping to keep it up. This managed to give me both greasy roots and a tangled, dry frizzy mess of ends....and zero volume! I used it up eventually because of the cost for a relatively small bottle, but would not repurchase. The conditioner was even worse!
