Lotions/ Creams - Alba Botanica - Very Emollient Body Lotion - Unscented Original

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

Until recently I believed that a body lotion had to be kinda greasy to really get the job done on very dry skin. This product dispelled that myth. My skin was noticeably better from the first use. It dries very fast, I can detect almost no scent at all, and I get a good 12 plus hours of feel good skin. The pump seems to dispense the perfect amount every time. And it's way less pricy than …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Gentlemen Prefer Pink

5.0

As cringeworthy as the name of this product is, it's an amazingly perfect pink, which is hard to find anywhere.

Since I searched for years everywhere and finally found it, it's my everyday lip color. I'm 59 and look a bit washed out without anything. I always wear lipstick. One coat of this is MLBB. Two or three quick coats give a nice blue based pink, but not too …

Powder - COVERGIRL - Clean Powder Foundation

May/17/2018

As others have noted, this is better than most powder foundations that cost two or three times as much.

I'm 58, with dry, sensitive skin, blotchy prone skin. This is enough coverage for a flattering everyday natural look which I can brush on in a few seconds. No caking. No oxidation. No irritation. Year round. Even the packaging is nice.

It is a foundation, so if …

I've been buying this for my son for the last two years for Christmas. He is 23, so it's his first real fragrance. Light and fresh, he loves it year round. There always seem to be some nice bonus gift sets available around the holidays. I'm glad it's a classic because he is very happy when he opens the box!

Polishes - Essie - Limo-Scene

Unless I have a special occasion, I leave my toes to the pros and do my own easy manicures. This is perfect for this. Not too opaque or pink. Even my kinda sloppy amateur job looks way better than nothing. It's very forgiving. I keep it in the fridge to avoid gloppiness. I can get a good six months out of a bottle.

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Naturally Glossy Mascara

What I love about this mascara is that it does not irritate my super sensitive eyes at all.

Beyond that, it is decent for an everyday/casual look.

I'm not crazy about the brush. It tends to miss quite a few lashes.

But I'm willing to live with that as this is a longtime staple for me.

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Smudge Pot Cream Eyeshadow

Jan/02/2016

I bought a little pot of this in "Ain't That Sweet" around a month ago.

I am not a big eyeshadow girl. It's too much work, and tends to migrate into my very sensitive eyes and make them itchy - HE or DS.

I picked this up at Target for like a dollar. Totally non-irritating. Just enough for the easy, natural, everyday look that I'm into these …

Skincare - Body - The Body Shop - Cranberry Nut Body Butter

Jul/06/2013

Bear in mind that I am writing this review in July, during a heat wave....

It was a Christmas gift. I almost didn't even open it. The bright red tub has a snowflake motif. I'm just not a huge Body Shop person. It seems gimmicky and cheapy. I guess I'm a snob.

Anyway, yeaterday, while looking for buried summer clothes in my closet, I happened to notice …

Hair Treatments - Redken - All Soft HEAVY CREAM Super Treatment

5.0

Feb/03/2013

For once you can believe the label. It really does make my hair soft and healthy feeling.

As others have mentioned, it won't feel slippy when you rinse. But it feels very conditioned as you hair dries, without turning greasy in a day or two.

Now that I'm getting old as a hen, I can't do the whole do my hair thing everyday. I find that if I use this, and …
