    LORAC Oil Free Neutralizer

    Works Well for Me

    I liked this product: the fact that it is oil free is a plus. My skin is medium and I mix it with a bit of bronzer for this to work as a light foundation (which for me it does) but on dark skin tones I would not recommend using it as a foundation or it may look ashy. It does neutralize pretty good but I would still recommend a light concealer over top. I don't recommend it for use around the eyes though. It works better on blemishes than darkness.

  • LORAC TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer

    LORAC TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer

    Great Bronzed Glow w/o Damage or Commitment

    Want a nice bronze glow without sacrificing your skin to harmful sun rays? Or bronzed skin without commitment? This product is perfect. I am a medium skin tone and I don't seek out suntanning. TANtalizer gives me that nice sunkissed look without skin damage and it washes off easily. Applies evenly without streaking or fading. Note: if you are going to be in hot outdoor conditions I would not advise using this except sparingly as it may not last under sweaty conditions. Can be used sparingly on bridge of nose, chin and tops of cheekbones for a nicely bronzed face. Mixes well with foundation too. Oily skins may want to beware, though. It can mix with oils and make too much shine.

  • Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion

    I thought I would try this lotion during the summer months because it is supposed to be light. I have normal/oily skin which with summer heat and humidity likes light rather than heavy moisture. This lotion did anything but help. With each use my skin became more oily and the lotion felt like it never "sank into" my skin. The last thing I want is a filmy feeling on my face all day. I found I had to touch up breakthrough shine more often while using this. Hardly what I call "Perfecting" lotion. I definitely won't purchase this again.

  • Murad Acne Spot Treatment

    I tried this through the Ulta Rewards Program. I thought it would be handy to have in case any little emergencies came up. I rarely break out but what few times it's happened I used this product and have had good results. It stopped any breakout in its tracks. In fact, they disappeared. I find it's good to use around the nose area to keep pores clear. For sensitive or dry skin it may be too harsh to use nightly on the nose. For normal/oily there should be no problems.

  • EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream

    EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream

    Clean shave and smooth skin

    I bought this in the Vanilla fragrance which was pleasant. It is a thick cream so you will have to rinse your razor under warm running water during shaving to keep the blades clean. For me this was no trouble to do. You don't have to use much to coat your skin and it does allow the razor to glide and give a good, close shave. It didn't make my legs itch (and I have sensitive skin on my legs and find many products do cause itching). My legs felt nice afterwards without any dryness. I'd purchase this again.

  • Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets

    Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets

    Works Great and Convenient Too

    I have been pleased with these oil absorbing sheets since I first purchased them a few years ago. They really do absorb any oil breakthrough and mid-day shine. They do not disturb the makeup you are wearing nor do they leave a deposit of powder (some oil absorbing sheets have a layer of powder on them which for me winds up looking cakey and off color). They are fragrance free and can be used on any skin type. So convenient too because you can carry them in your purse for touch ups. I always keep a pack in my purse. The package is self dispensing which is handy too. The only problem I found is that the "sticky" square that lifts the sheets out can lose it's adhesiveness. In that case you have to remove them by hand but it's no big chore.

  • Make Up For Ever HD Foundation Invisible Cover Foundation

    I purchased this foundation after having tried the HD Microfinsh powder, which I love. I was very pleased with this foundation. Not only did the shade I purchased (110) look wonderful on my pale sking, it truly gave an invisible finish. It blends easily and gives skin a perfect look without being cakey or heavy. Color stayed true and did not fade. I am glad I gave this makeup a try. I recommend it.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Drying Cream

    I got this product as a sample with an order. While it will help dry up any unexpected blemishes that pop up the smell is hard to take. I don't know if it was just the sample I received but the smell was very sulphuric (rotten eggish). I know sulphur is a good (though smelly) ingredient used in many drying products. I only use this product rarely. If this is the way it actually does smell I wouldn't recommend using it where anyone else could smell it.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Kiwi Face Scrub

    Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Kiwi Face Scrub

    Great Scent but Only Okay Product

    I love the scent of this facial scrub but scent alone won't help exfoliation. I found the kiwi seeds to be too large and too dispersed to be of any real help at exfoliating my skin. It rinsed off well enough but I still felt as if I had a "film" on my skin. For very sensitive/moderately sensitive skins this product would be great. It's not a harsh scrub and would not cause discomfort for easily irritated skin. For me, I like a little more "grain" to my facial scrub.

  • Burberry Brit Eau de Parfum

    Burberry Brit Eau de Parfum

    Warm and Inviting

    I like the warm vanilla tones paired with light spice in this perfume. It's good for the transitional period between summer and fall. It's not too light, not too heavy. The fragrance lasts pretty much all day as well. Worth giving a try.
