Found myself on the hunt for a new summer sunscreen (I suffer from shiny object syndrome, and am always looking to replace my HG Skinceuticals Physical Fusion SPF50 because...money). Main reason for trying this particular AB sunscreen? The back-of-label description about water droplets bursting upon application had me at hello.

The texture is uh-may-zing and glides on and subsequently …

If you're considering buying this product, please note it's not meant as a stand alone moisturizer. Meaning, you will need to layer something on top of it.

I'm oily, I love it underneath my CereVe PM during the winter. I'd be interested to see how this holds up once the summer weather (i.e. humidity) rolls around. I love the concept of this product and how it first …

The one and only thing I like about this product is it gives a little 'slip' to the skin so it helps my toner goes on smoother. Without it, I need to use more of my toner to mimic the effect.

That said, I'm purposely doing the 7 skin method with this in order to use it up and throw it away.

There's just nothing special about it. Someone else called it …

UPDATE MAY 2017 - Pretty sure this ended up breaking me out so late into my testing, so I no longer use. Agree with other reviewers that this product began to felt "heavy" on my skin, before I even layered makeup over it. Would not recommend.

-----
So I'm two months into trialling this product, and overall, it's good. Not great. Not HG as I was hoping. Worse …

I was looking for a quick-fix, multitasking spray that cost less than my beloved Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray but smelled and performed just as good. A tall order, I must admit.

Used this a myriad of ways for a whole month, and I'm not impressed, to say the least. Hyped as a texturizing hair spray that doubles as a dry shampoo, it didn't cut down, let alone eliminate …

Apr/23/2016

After realizing how chemical sunscreens irritated the crap out of my skin (burning, redness), I went down the internet rabbit hole in search of a mineral/physical sunscreen. I've tried nearly everything on the market, and found them to be either too drying, too greasy, or too chalky (i.e. left whitecast on skin).

Skinceuticals Physical Fusion is the perfect middle ground between …

Really pleased with this cleanser, which my dermatologist prescribed as part of my rosacea papules and pustules treatment. I was fearful it would dry me out, but the opposite is true! I've stopped using my the other cleansers in my stash because in comparison, those don't leave my face as soft, hydrated, and breakout-free as this.

If I cleanse twice a day (as prescribed) …

**UPDATE Oct. 2016: P50 has changed my skin, and my confidence, for the better. Took me nearly a year to finish the full size bottle.**

Every online review of this acid toner that I read was, frankly, absurd. Breakouts were banished never to be heard from again! Marks and scars faded faster than the speed of sound! Tone and texture as even as a freshly paved road! Jesus wept …

Skincare - Face - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - 50% Glycolic Peel

I use this once a week, leave it on for max. 10 minutes before washing off with their Green Tea cleanser. I finally understand what it means to have "bouncy" skin: after using this peel my face literally glows. It looks so smooth, even, and healthy, with minimal oiliness or shine.

For me, the 50% version is great for fading post-acne marks, usually the very next day pink-ish …
