This stuff is the best kept secret in cosmetics. The clear version of this (as titled in this review) is exactly the same as the basic Smashbox primer. I've used both and can't discern a difference. This is a silicone based clear primer that creates a nice smooth finish and allows foundation to slide on easily. It keeps my foundation from looking too dry. It doesn't break out my …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - HD Studio Photogenic Primer

This product has a thin lotion feel, not what I associate with a primer. Right out of the tube (it comes in a tube now) it rubbed me the wrong way because it has a strong, pronounced odor that is reminiscent of some kind of toiletry product I would associate with an elderly gentleman. Maybe something in my grandfather's bathroom? I thought the blue-ish white color was interesting, but I …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Pore Filler

This product was more expensive than I expected a NYX product to be, first of all. Secondly, although it did smooth out the pores that I was interested in hiding, the effect lasted less than a minute. I am not interested in layering the product as I wanted to also wear foundation. Mind you, my pores aren't that enlarged! I figured I have a very minimal concern, so perhaps a budget product …Read more

I bought the regular (pink) bottle, not the bottle for waterproof makeup. This stuff works surprisingly well! It feels just like water but easily removes eye makeup, concealer and foundation. It does not sting my eyes. There is no greasy or soapy residue, and I do not feel the need to rinse my face or wash it with a foaming soap-like product afterward. The price is excellent especially …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Gold Bond - Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion with Aloe

This is the best, most healing lotion I've used ever. My hands become red, chapped, cracked, and they bleed every time the weather turns cold. This is only lotion that does anything for my hands -- and you name it, I've tried it. It is not too expensive when you buy in bulk at Costco. It is also really good for sensitive skin. My 9 year old has extremely reactive skin, and this lotion …Read more

I ended up really liking this product. Initially, I was put off by the scent, which I don't care for, and I thought the texture of the lotion was a little to thick or heavy. However, it has proven to be a lovely product which creates an especially nice make-up base. I gave the product only a 4 because I never really got used to the smell and it is a little costly for me -- especially if you …Read more
