I've been hooked on this foundation as a summer humidity staple, or when I need more coverage. I've had no issue with pilling and I use a lot of before treatments. It wears well and looks finished. Last year I could not find 112 anywhere. I was mixing 120 and 110. It's back in stock along with a few expansions! I'm acne prone, sensitive, oily (age 40) skin and this sets …Read more

Moisturizers - mark. - For Goodness Face Spf.30

May/20/2011

I know this line is marketed to specific younger gals, but if you have oily to normal skin prone to breakouts-love antioxidants, yet have a lovehate relationship with spf...give this guy a chance age aside. This is just packed with interesting antioxidants, blueberry cocoa (no real smell but the spf scent is faintly detectable. Spf 30 is a win. I'm not very patient and this needs about 15 …Read more

Packaging is simple, but opens easily. The shades run darker so check a swatch and test on your own hair.

I'm a medium brunette, with some light to very light brown thrown in here or there (I expect to find them gray one day!) My hair tends to pull red. I recently had highlights done with out toning that I found less than stellar. I opted for this brand over Clairol due to the …

Treatments (Face) - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/16/2008

I've been through three or four bottles of this now and like it somewhat. I opted to try this when I ran out of PC 2% liquid and her prices were just so high. I honestly do not believe it is as effective as the PC. I don't really do well with a multitude of silicon products on my face and this is starting to show with repeated (twice daily) use in my jaw area where I am most prone to …Read more

Hair Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Special Effects FX Extreme Shine

Dec/01/2008

This is a nice well formulated cheap silicon product. The reviewer below gave one of the best uses for it; spray small amount onto your hand then apply to ends or touch apply to portions you want to bring out and flyaway areas. Spraying directly onto the hair is a bad idea. <p>The smell = blah. Very simple uncomplicated product, has vitamin A and E, could benefit from some panthenol …Read more

Blush - Alima Pure - Satin Matte Blush in Apple Blossom

Nov/16/2008

This is one of my favorite Alima blushes. It gives my pale freckled skin a perfect natural pink blushing shade. I add it around my cheeks, eyes, nose, and chin. Very nice, no shimmer (very light color) The pigment is very even and goes on smoothly without any clearly marked area where it has been applied (blends exceptionally well) Blush was not a staple in my makeup regime until I found Alima; …Read more

I often use this in the morning (I need something stronger at night to get my makeup all the way off) but I do love this cleanser. Gentle, inexpensive, good ingredients. <p>
<p>

I also use a pump mixed with two crushed asprin for a mask when I have the time. I've even needed to shave my legs with it before. Works out really well!

Jul/21/2008

Love this lotion. I don't think I would ever use it on my face, but I have used it very carefully around my eyes (look mom no stinging!)<p>
<p>

It is a fabulously well formulated, fragrance free (add your own if you are brave), light lotion for the body and hands! Great for oily girls who don't want to slather on body cream. Beneficial ingredients are …

Jul/21/2008

Would I buy it again? I do all the time! On a side tangent I get a little miffed that they keep altering the formula a teensy bit and giving it a new name (3 times now!) Each time I worry that the new formula is going to cause massive breakout city (who wants to pay 20 bucks for that!?) <p>
<p>
So far so good. I've been using the enhancing, now regenerating spf lotion …

I'm a Kiss My Face lip balm girl too, I'm also a lipbalm-a-holic. I liked this product. Easy to purchase, sinks in nicely and leaves lips feeling smooth. Smell was nice. Easy to carry around too. The product is a little squishy in the tube and not as hard formed as I would like.
