    Burt's Bees Repair Serum

    Ah-mazing Product!!

    I've been hooked on rose hip seed oil for a few years now and stumbled across this product while looking for items that contain high amounts of the rose hip seed oil. This product calls itself a "serum", which I think is misleading. Its a facial oil blend. It retails at approx $18.00 for 1 oz of oil and a little goes a long way. I have found that this oil makes my skin 44 yr old combination skin glow, reduces the fine lines and wrinkles and also fades the dark spots I have from past bouts with acne. The best part is that it doesn't break me out either or cause my sensitive skin to errupt. For this winter, I have been using it twice daily, under their intense hydration day and night creams (LOVE these too!) and my normally itchy, dry winter skin is hydrated, healthy and very happy. I've been getting a ton of compliments. This oil has multiple uses too- cuticles, hair, dry body areas like elbows, etc. This is a product I will never want to be without and also highly recommend!

  • Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush

    Because I am uber fair skinned, I just don't normally have any luck with bronzers as they're too orange or too dark. But, I figured I'd give this a try since I love the Happy Booster blushes and this was a combo. Surprisingly, this bronzer is an excellent shade for my skin and not overly shimmery, although it has some shimmer. The natural shade of blush is also the perfect pink/peach tone. I would have given it 10 stars except there just isn't enough of the blush in the packaging and it can be hard to get enough of the blush without picking up any bronzer on the brush when you are trying to get only the blush. I am torn as to whether I would buy this again or just go with the full size, non-combo of the bronzer and natural shade of blush.

  • L'Oreal Paris  Target health & beauty hair care shampoo & conditioner L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Restoring Conditioner

    After getting excellent results with the mask in this line, I bought the daily shampoo and this daily conditioner to keep the great results going. I have very long, very curly hair that is fine in texture but I have a lot of it. This winter has just brutalized my hair. This regimen of shampoo, daily conditioner and mask has restored my hair to its former shiney glory. I am so impressed with how well this system works. This daily conditioner gives you just what you need for when you're not using the mask and works excellently in tandem with the shampoo. My hair is loving this and the results have been excellent and all at a very affordable price. I will continue to purchase and also highly recommend. Additionally, the scent is wonderful and my boyfriend loves it!

  • L'Oreal Paris Advanced Hair Care Total Repair 5 Restoring Shampoo

    After getting great results with the total repair hair mask, I went and bought the shampoo and daily conditioner. I am just as pleased with the shampoo as I am the mask. I have very long, very curly hair that is fine in texture but I have a lot of it. This winter has been brutal on my hair and its been dry, brittle and dull looking. After repairing my hair with the mask, I wanted something for daily use to keep the good results going. This shampoo cleans without stripping, makes my fine hair full but with great shine and manageability. Some shampoos actually work backward and un-do the great repairing of their conditioning counterparts but not so with this product. I will continue to purchase and highly recommend.

  • L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 - Damage Erasing Balm

    I haven't had great luck with drug store hair masks but thought I'd take a chance on this one. I am very pleased to say I was pleasantly surprised! I have very long, very curly hair that is fine in texture but I have a lot of it. With the winter being so brutal here in the Northeast, my hair has been very dry, very brittle and generally dull looking. This mask fixed all of that in one shot. I can't believe how healthy, full and moisturized my hair looks now. It sealed my splitends, added much needed hydration, brought back the shine and all of this without being heavy and weighing my hair down. I am using this 2x a week currently and continue to get excellent results. I went and bought the daily shampoo and conditioner as well. I would recommend this mask and will continue to purchase it.

  • Suave Professionals Dry Conditioner

    Suave Professionals Dry Conditioner

    Love, Love, Love this Product!!

    I can't even begin to say how much I love this product. I have had no luck with any dry shampoos but this dry conditioner is excellent. It sprays out as a fine mist and makes it easy to ensure you don't over apply it, as long as you don't spray to close to your hair. My hair is very fine in texture but I have a lot of it. Its also very long and very curly. This product tames the frizz, smells awesome and doesn't weigh my hair down at all. It also doesn't seem to cause much build up as my hair washes out very well. My one issue is that the bottle is very small. Now, you only need to spray a little bit, and it is extremely inexpensive, but I'd love to have a bigger bottle available.

  • Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Primer

    I have this in the nude shade and I am very impressed with the shade and how it applies. I am uber pale and this shade seems to work almost like a tinted moisturizer in that it evens out my skin tone and seems to make any lines and imperfections less noticeable. It works wonderful under the PF mineral powder foundation and definitely keeps my makeup on longer and keeps oiliness at bay. It also doesn't cause me any breakouts or irritate my skin. My main issue, and why I didn't rate it higher, is that the brush applicator is just awful. You have to keep turning the product to get it to come out of the brush applicator and not only doesn't it actually come out quickly, after you put the product cap back on, it continues to creep out of the applicator and ends up clumping into the cap. If the applicator had a lock, that would be an inprovement but they should just ditch the brush and make it a squeeze tube.

  • Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Eventone BB Cream
    8.0

    Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Eventone BB Cream

    Close to What a BB Cream Should Be

    okay, I was very pleasantly surprised by this product. Most of the US BB creams are basically tinted moisturizers with maybe one or 2 skin care ingredients thrown in (and not in effective concentrations). This product is a skin care treatment cream with some coverage and color added, which is a nice change of pace. This product seems to be more close to what a true BB cream should be than any of the other US BB creams I've tried. It contains cocoa butter, soy, niacinamide, vitamin C and licorice extract. It moisturizes, reduces redness, plumps fine lines, evens the skin tone and reduces dark spots all while giving a sheer coverage to the skin to even out the tone and cover slight imperfections- you can layer it for more coverage in areas that need it. The color comes from mineral pigments and it also has an SPF 15. Now, all of that being said, my main issue and why I didn't give it a higher rating was that blending the product is challenging. It dries pretty quickly. I have very fair, sensitive, combination skin and I was very pleased with the overall effect of this product. I like a more sheer coverage so this works for me. It also hasn't irritated my skin either. The lightest shade is VERY light, although it matched me perfectly, and the next shade is very dark so some may have issues with skin color matching. Those with dry skins may find that they need additional moisture. For those who are very oily and had issues with BB creams over the summer, this maybe great for you for winter as it doesn't make me oilier in my T-zone.

  • Pond's Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser
    10.0

    Pond's Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser

    My New Favorite Cleanser

    This is another 10 star product for me. I am 44 yrs old with sensitive, combination skin- not only the balance of oiliness and dryness but also wrinkles and acne. I need a cleanser that will truly deep clean my skin but not over strip it or cause me irritation. This cleanser fits the bill perfectly! The clay draws out trapped dirt and the creamy consistency (not foaming but a creamy lather) keeps my skin from being tight and dry. It also works great with my face brush and doesn't splatter all over the bathroom. I can see myself being able to use this all year round too, which is a nice bonus

    L'Oreal Paris Everstrong Overnight Repair Treatment

    Like a "Night Cream" for Your Hair

    I have liked this from my first use and it just keeps getting better and better with each additional use. I have very long, very curly hair that is fine in texture but I have a lot of it. Being that its long, although I don't heat style, I am prone to split ends and some breakage. This product has been a Godsend! Every night I apply it to dry hair, twist it into a "scrunchy" and sleep with it in. I wake up to volumized hair, without frizz and sealed ends. My hair is so soft and silky and never weighed down. The product does soak in quickly, with no residue on the pillow, and just works well. I think of it as part of my night time beauty routine- like a "night cream" for your hair. I also apply it to wet hair, after I wash it, as a leave in. For me, I like the scent too. This is definitely a 10 star product for me and I hope they never discontinue!
