Styling Products - Oribe - Supershine Moisturizing Cream

Poop. I should have paid more attention to the ingredients & less to the reviews. Despite being labeled a “moisturizing cream,” this is nothing but another silicone-filled styling product. Left my fine, colored hair poufy & frizzy when I air dried it. Can’t return it so it’s a total waste for me. Beware if your hair doesn’t like ‘cones!!! Smell is the only good thing here.

Cleansers - Almay - Makeup Remover Cream Cleanser

Nice gentle creamy cleanser that does not dry out my 54-year-old face. It removes all my makeup (though I don’t wear a lot). I go through it pretty quickly, however, so it’s not the cheapest drug store option out there!

I use Timeless shampoo and, in winter, the conditioner as well, but honestly I don't think this product provides any additional benefits. It also seems to weigh down my long, fine hair if I use it in conjunction with my other LP products.

Very expensive but I can get by with only washing my hair once a week! At 54, this is my go-to shampoo for my long, highlighted, fine, thinning hair.

Cleansers - Almay - Makeup Remover + Foaming Lotion Cleanser

Feb/05/2018

Pros:
Very gentle
Non-drying
Effective cleanser

Cons:
Packaging (pump never worked!)
Slimy texture
May not remove heavier makeup

Details: This is a winner for me and I will definitely repurchase, but Almay absolutely needs to do something about the packaging! I've seen reviews elsewhere about the faulty pump so it's not just an …

So I'm 54 years old. What that means is that I've tried LOTS of products in my life and also that I have a realistic view of how much any one product is going to do to hold off the inevitable result of living & breathing for over half a century. I had never tried anything from the PC line before, however. Since I have been paying some attention to the Beautypedia reviews, I thought …Read more

I have not actually bought this but have now sampled it three times in my local Sephora. Eventually, I love it - warm and sophisticated. My problem is that it takes about 2 hours to get to that point. Before that, I'm overwhelmed by vanilla. Can't believe how many people say this is light or "the fragrance for those who don't like vanilla." I find the vanilla to be rather …Read more

Nov/27/2017

This is an amazing product! I am 53 years old, so I've had the opportunity to try many hair products over the years. I have fine, limp, straight hair that is also prone to frizz so in general looks unhealthy. I have never been able to tolerate any kind of "cones" in hair products. They might work well once but then my hair ends up looking worse. Given that, I would never have even …Read more

As a woman with fine, thin, straight hair, I've always been on the hunt for products that provide volume, density & lift at the roots, and this product does all of that! And it doesn't leave my hair sticky or tangled or feeling like it's got "product" in it. It also plays nicely with other products. I can use it for both blow drying and air drying, which is very cool …Read more

Jun/28/2017

Okay, I've jumped on the bandwagon on this stuff, but it took me awhile to feel the love. I bought a full size a couple of years ago because of all the hype, but blow drying my hair with it produced mediocre results: My fine, thin, straight hair was left limp & shapeless. I returned it. In the past year, I've been trying a number of LP products with good results (although i have to …Read more
