I tried cold plasma about 3 years ago. I couldn't get past the smell..literally gagged every time I tried. My friend ordered from HSN too and had no issues with the smell. I actually tossed it. Fast forward three years and risked retrying it thanks to a great 2 for 1 special. With trembling hands I opened the jar...no scent at all. Phew! Product works great for texture and firmness issues …Read more

Love this stuff. I'm on my second bottle and can't imagine not using it every time I wash. I have thin, fine hair and can't use it when it's wet.., too heavy. But on dry hair, it's a miracle for shine and control. One bottle lasted over a year.

Cleansers - SkinMedica - Facial Cleanser

This cleanser works really well..except for the new packaging. When I first got it I was pumping out a clear gel and wondered where the 'foam' was. When I opened the botttle, I noticed the 'foaming ingredients' were stuck in and around the tube & nozzle. No wonder I wasn't getting the deep clean effect. So now I have to shake the bottle vigorously & pour it out …Read more

I think this is one the best TM's around. It really looks like second skin and dosen't make me oily...unline Laura Mercier's. It took a while to figure out which color works best. I'm LSF 5.5 NC30-35. According to the armani guide, I'm a #4. Well, I looked at it and thought 'no way!'..this is too dark. I bought #3 which looked like a great match but there was …Read more

I've had samples hanging around but the reviews put me off trying it...till today. Anyway, I was really surprised. I have thin shoulder-length hair and used about a quarter size. My hair felt a bit greasy when I was rinsing but the surprise came when I was blowdrying. My hair was shiny and had loads of body too. I was expecting shine but not soft, smooth body. Now I have to hunt around for …Read more

This is best shampoo I've ever used and I'm sure I tried every one out there. I have colored, fine hair that goes flat with rich shampoos and dries out with anything else. Fun. I need body, hate flat hair. This is the perfect balance. That said, to those who didn't like it, please make sure you follow the directions. The first time I used it, I just shampooed and rinsed. My hair …Read more

I love the light coverage especially for summer. Somehow, it covers well but feels superlight. As for the teeny amount, it's the same amount as the Armani foundation. The packaging is much more compact-less bulky for travelling. The is good for oily/combo skin.

I love this brush. It does look a lot like the no. 5 powder brush (from pictures-I have no access to TM). It's dense enough for bronzer & powder, soft enough to apply blush really well.I like the handle size-not too long (think BB)
so you can take it along but not so small that it's hard to work with. The Saks SA actually recommended it when I was waffling about which brush to …

I just got this and I know I'll use it everyday. I saw it months ago & thought..lots of $$$ for beige shimmer. The reviews made me revisit...I must be missing something.

I was. Finally I can wear pigmented blush & not look like a cupie doll. Just dust Nico on top & the blush looks natural, glowy..not just sitting on top.

Great highlighter for oily skins or …

This is ONLY foundation I've re-purchased. Great for oily skin and sheer coverage. I tried LSF (also in 5.5) after the great reviews. The LSF has better coverage and the color is more natural (less peach undertone). But, the finish was slightly more slick. So, I combined the best of both. Two squirts MSF and one squirt LSF and I have the best foundation. Perfect color, no oilies and sheer …Read more
