Jan/02/2014

I bought this foundation based on the positive reviews, easy availability, and reasonable price point.

Things I liked about this: It smelled nice, kind of a gentle fruity scent that quickly dissipated. I have normal to dry skin and this glided over it, providing a light to medium coverage that can be built up. It has a very nice, natural, skin like finish, which is what I prefer. Not …

Jun/27/2013

This is a review for the transparent powder. Like another reviewer stated, Caron has two formulations: the classic one, which is for combination/oily skin, and transparent, which is for normal/dry/sensitive skin. I got it in "Translucide" which is the most popular shade in the transparent line. It looks alarmingly pink (I have very strong yellow undertones in my skin), but looks …Read more

I can't believe I haven't written a review for this yet.

Like the reviewer below, a thousand times yes to this body wash! I have KP on my arms, and a little on my legs, a few small eczema patches, and normal/dry skin everywhere else. I need something that will clean without stripping away any moisture from my skin. Strong fragrances tend to make me itchy, so that's a …

NO! NO! NO! Garbage! Do not buy this hairdryer ladies! Your money is better spent elsewhere. For those that gave this product a good review, just wait..oh yes, just you wait. Like another reviewer stated, mine went out in a clattering, ear bursting manner mid blowout. The warranty had JUST expired (I had just thrown out the receipt and barcode a few weeks prior) and then this dryer died …Read more

May/01/2013

Will buy this again and again for as long as I live. I love lotions and have never used the same one twice. I've gone through Lush Dream Cream, Sympathy for the Skin, Eucerin, Keri, Vasoline, Oil of Olay body lotions and none of these even come close to Curel.

I have KP on the backs of my arms and a little on my legs, and very dry skin on my legs. I also have little patches of …

I have this product in Creamy Natural and I'm about an NC20-25. This is a very high quality, talc-free mineral pressed powder. I usually use it to set my makeup, and it lasts the entire work day without budging.

A great drugstore find, although it's pretty pricey here in Canada (about $20). I tend to buy this across the border or when it's on sale.

I …

A fabulous brush. Here's how I use it:

Dab foundation in a thin layer on my cheeks with a flat foundation brush or fingers. Swirl and buff with this brush from the cheeks out until it's all blended in. Or I do what the reviewer below me does, and put a dab on the back of my hand, dab this brush in it and buff and swirl over my face. Perfection!

I prefer this …

Cleansers - La Vitton - Laventine Water-soluble Facial Cleansing Oil Dry/Normal Skin

Apr/12/2013

I used to be a MAC Cleanse Off Oil fan, and went through several bottles of it. However, I noticed that if I used it more than a few nights in a row, I would get dry, flaky patches on my skin. I did love the ease of use, the smell, and effectiveness. I tried this one by Laventine (used to be La Vitton) and I found the ease of use and effectiveness to be equal. I really liked the smell of MAC-it …Read more

I originally tried some of this on while shopping and walked away, thinking..."Meh!" As I continued shopping, the smell grew on me, and I couldn't stop sniffing and sniffing and sniffing....and sniffing...my wrists because I just loved it so much! I had to go back and buy myself a bottle of the musk oil. Since then, I've had to restock on another bottle and also have gotten …Read more

I love the way this smells-orange creamsicle is perfect, as some other reviewers have said. I think it smells fresh and citrusy...makes me thirsty =) My aunt said she could smell patchouli, but I can't.

I wouldn't buy this again, not because it's a bad perfume, but because I almost never buy the same perfume twice. Packaging: terrible. So cheap...the label is …
