Misnomer to call a moisturizer-there really is none

Was looking for something sheer to just even out tone on my 65 yr old skin and was impressed enough with the sample Sephora gave me that I bought a bottle. # 6 Satin

Seems a bit drying but just need to get the right moisturizer/sunscreen combo.

This summer i bought the Bare with Me from NYX but now realize it is a …

Bought the taupe liner based on a review by HotnFlashy on YouTube.

I use BB Stone eyeshadow stick and this liner really complements it. I tend to have problems with liners going straight but this one is easy to use, line is always good and it doesn't wear off.

I plan on getting the light brown one.

Bought based on reviews here and a video from Dr. Dray.

Had purchased a cream based Burt Bees cleanser but it was too heavy for summer. My go-to has been Avalon Organics CoQ-10 cleanser but it has been discontinued(as always)

This is a very basic gel cleanser and it makes my face feel clean but not stripped. The only issue is that it can sting my eyes if not …

Purchased based on the reviews below and glad I did.

Even dry sunscreen make me sweaty, but this has been a pleasant surprise. Forehead gets a little moist but I am not dripping wet.

Someone below mentioned how nicely this worked under makeup and they were not kidding. I cannot remember the last time a sunscreen worked this well for me. Makeup looks good and I am not melting a …

Can only afford a sample.

Someone described it as a better version of Annick Goutal's Sables and I can see some similarities.
It is warm and cool at the same time, close to the skin. As I get older I like scents that don't scream for hours.

I actually liked it quite a bit and am surprised by the lukewarm ratings.

Recommended by salon. Age related thinning;tried so many brands can't even list them all, but this has been the best.

Shampoo 1-2 a week, so takes longer to see any results but right away noticed my hair was much shinier.

I use the leave in treatment and minoxidil on days I don't.

Will continue to use.

As I have become older, everything is drying out, including my lips. I grew up when the only thing available was Chap Stick and that didn't do a damn thing.

I have used various balms over the years(Dr. Bronner was the last and it became soft and smeary)

I purchased a Vanilla Honey a couple of years ago and remembered how much I liked it, so I tried again. I now have …

Every once in awhile I will pick up an Almay product and be surprised how great it is. Lip Vibes hit the mark!
Purchased the cream formula in Believe and a matte in Get Crazy. They both wear well and last a good while.

These have been compared to Sephora Lipstories but I couldn't find a color that suited me. Believe is brightish mauve and Get Crazy is a berry. And as much …

This is for one of the new Ulta lipsticks.

Purchased a mauve color called Mischievous. Color is good, goes on the lips smoothly but transfers like no other lipstick I have ever had. One cup of coffee and it is gone.

I keep wearing it but don't care to keep re-applying, so will not repurchase.
