Moisturizers - CeraVe - Healing Ointment

Feb/11/2017

I love this stuff! I heard about it on the doctor radio derm show, where it was described a being like Aquaphor, but more elegant. Yes, it is an ointment, but it absorbs well. I use about a large pea size amount as a night cream, and about half that in the morning if my skin feels dry. It absorbs completely in about 15 minutes. My skin looks luminous, never greasy, in the mornings. I've …Read more

So disappointing! The egg beater shaped wand misses every lash, and the spiky end just makes a mess. The formula is ok when I finally decided to apply with my orange lash blast wand. This is garbage!

Bronzers - Unlisted Brand - Mistura 6-in-1 Beauty Solution

4.0

Aug/26/2009

It's ok. I saw the ad for Mistura in the SkyMall catalog. (misturabeauty.com) I wanted something simple to use on rushed mornings after I work out and need to get to work. The claim is that you only need Mistura, not eyeshadow, blush, foundation or lipstick. It is true if you already have good even toned skin. I have dark undereye circles. This product is not concealer. It does make my face …Read more

Moisturizers - Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30

3.0

Aug/26/2009

I bought this because the Aveeno seems to make one of the few SPF moisurizers that I'm not allergic to. This product is is thicker than I prefer, so I just use one pump. That makes me think I may not be using enough to get the SPF benefit. I bought medium, and I like the look. My skin can be oily in the T-zone, but not super oily. I just blot later in the day. I may try light next time. This …Read more

Styling Products - Carol's Daughter - Hair Milk The Original Curl Definer (NOT styling foam)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/25/2009

I really love Hair Milk. Not so much smelling like Lemon Pledge. However the smell dissipates before I leave the house. I have naturally curly hair. This product has no hold, so it is not for windy or humid days, or for those who like stylized curls. This is great if you dislike the crunch many products create. I love the perfect natural-looking soft ringlets I get with this product. It is hard …Read more

Hair - Paul Mitchell - The Cream

Nov/09/2008

This and Potion 9 are my favorite products. I live in a humid, sometimes windy climate, and the Cream doesn't have enough hold for bad weather days like Potion 9 does. But on other days, I love the Cream. My curls are soft and defined and last all day. I find it works best when I put the Cream on soaking wet hair when I'm just out of the shower. I wrap my hair in a T-shirt while I do my …Read more

Styling Products - SEBASTIAN - Potion 9

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/09/2008

Potion 9 is one of those products that I keep coming back to. I try others looking for less crunch and cost, but always come back. I have naturally curly hair that can get very unruly. I prefer the Julia Roberts or Debra Messing look, but often end up with concert Diana Ross. It's been over 10 years that I've used Potion 9 off and on. My latest application effort is one I found on …Read more
