Great- very versatile!
This goes on great on my oily skin. I don't like the look of foundation on my face because of my skin tone, but I do use a little with a makeup brush on my t-zone before I apply my mineral makeup and it definitely helps my makeup stay in place all day. For the price, you really can't get a better foundation. I have never really tried pricey foundations, I've always sticked to drugstore brands, and I feel that anyone with any skin type can do the same with this stuff. I'm sure there's better foundation out there - you get what you pay for - but for around ten bucks, this is where it's at.

I love you, Bioelements! Quick refiner is really a must in anyone's beauty regimen, if you ask me. It works overnight for several of your skin's needs, such as acne, fine lines, and exfoliation, as it resurfaces the top layer of your skin. It dries quick and doesn't leave a sticky feel. I have oily skin and I use it every other day, unless I have a problem spot that arises. I can use it every day and still not have any irritation. (Use a moisturizer following)

Believe the hype.
So I finally broke down and bought the 217 brush. I tried numerous blending brushes that I liked for a while... (Smashbox, Walmart brand, and Sonya Kashuk) but this really is the holy grail of blending brushes. It's stiff, but not too stiff. It can blend soft lines or more bold looks. Worth the investment!

I am a fan of Lorac products, but this was a big fail. I wanted to try gel eyeliner or something new that I could apply with my own brush and I picked this because of it's cute packaging and the highlighting shadow in the lid - how convenient! Well the shadow was too shimmery for my taste and the liner was hard as a rock! I literally had to heat it up to get it to go on my brush and it always turned out as a big, smudgy mess! Completely ran with my oily skin. Totally NOT worth the price.

All primers are made the same!
I am a licensed esthetician, and believe me, all makeup primers are made of just about the same ingredients. I was a faithful Smashbox Photo Finish user for years, but I hated paying that much money on something that was so temporary. I have oily skin, so no primer I've found has completely masked the shine, but you can't beat $8! Seriously, this primer works just as well as anything else I've tried. A little goes a long way. You really can tell a difference with the way your makeup glides on, as well as it's staying power.

Oh my gosh! This is hands down, the number one beauty product I've ever owned. I am obsessed. This moisturizer is the cure for my oily skin! It literally cuts my skin's oil production in half. I recently moved to a dry climate, and discovered the importance of moisturizing my skin. This gel doesn't feel greasy at all. It instantly absorbs into my skin, leaving it feeling squeaky clean for my makeup. I will never use another moisturizer. I am a believer in the entire Bioelements line now. I am a licensed esthetician, and this is by far the best skin care line I've come across. If you can, get your Beyond Hydration custom blended to fit your skin type with Biolements custom blendable botanicals and serums!

Great for creating waves in my flat, fine hair.
This product is great! I received a sample bottle and instantly loved it! It felt sticky and thick on my hands but it magically worked into my hair and made sexy, beachy waves without any stiff feel. I can run my fingers though my hair freely and it looks natural, although my hair is hardly wavy on its own. Most products like this, I find myself constantly scrunching my hair all over until its dry in order to get the beachy waves I like, but this just takes a simple, quick run through and I'm good to go for the rest of the day! Redken products are great!

Good Foundation Brush
I really like this brush for applying makeup. The bristles are compacted in just the right way so that it picks up the right amount of foundation, and really buffs it into your skin, creating a great finish. However, the brush is expensive, so in the 3 years I've been using Bare Minerals, I have only owned two of these. I will say that over time, the brush will become stiff and rough and doesn't feel as great on your skin anymore. I do wash my brushes but it doesn't ever return to it's original soft feel. So, if you can afford to buy a new brush every 6 months, this is a great one to invest in!

I just started using an eye makeup remover and let me tell you- it makes all the difference in the world. This formula is not greasy at all and will not burn your eyes. I have very sensitive eyes and I also wear contacts, and this does not irritate them at all. I also use a little all over my face just to break up all the makeup particles before I cleanse. It definitely does its job in just as little as two swipes of a cotton ball, and all my eye makeup is removed.

I recently switched to Dermalogica (I am just beginning Estetician school) and I LOVE this cleanser. It feels amazing on my face, and you only have to use a small amount. I leave it on a couple of minutes and it can also act as a mask. This definitely will not dry your face out, but gives you a really deep clean feeling. My skin feels tighter after using it.
