    Origins Modern Friction

    not my favorite.

    despite my love affair with the sister product for face, i'm not crazy about this product. the granules are bigger and courser than the ones in the face product, of course, but they are also irregularly shaped and sized. it reminds me exactly of the much cheaper product that uses ground-up apricot kernals to exfoliate. i expected more from origins, i can find lots of less expensive body exfoliants that would deliver same results.

    Weleda Almond Moisture Cream

    weleda rocks. 806563

    i'm a weleda lover. i can't get enough of the all natural skin care that their products provide. i often use almond oil on my skin (and hair) and i have to admit that this formuation is much easier to control and apply. my skin loves this stuff, never rebels when i apply it. i find this product very soothing and beneficial when my skin is irritated.

    Weleda Iris Night Cream

    fall in love after a one night stand. 359354

    my friend bought this for me when i complained to her of a rash on my face. the calendula oil is fabulously calming. the smell is intoxicating. my rash is gone now, but this remains my favorite night cream. all natural ingredients. very gentle. very effective! love, love, love it.

    Benefit ooh la lift

    not sure it de-puffs. 643914

    ooooh, so pretty. i'm not sure this product is helping to reduce the puffiness around my eyes. but i like it for the creamy, soothing feel and the brightening effect i get under my eyes. good stuff. feels cool and fresh.

  • Benefit Dandelion

    Benefit Dandelion

    such pretty color. 667313

    i was given my box of dandelion blush. the color is petal perfect. like the pale blush of a pinkish rose. there is a mild glow and skin brightening affect that anyone would love. not too shimmery, just right. the big down-side for me is the formulation which includes various petro-chemicals (parabens) that i would rather avoid. i would be the largest purchaser of benefit products if it were not for those junk ingredients that i prefer not to put on my skin.

    Benefit Benetint

    the most natural sheer color you can get. 518709

    i absolutely love this product. i would consider myself an addict except for one thing. this product is formulated with petroleum products (parabens) that i absolutely avoid. therefor, it says a lot that i continue to use this product, despite the violation of my strict formulation requirements. the color is so sheer and pretty. it looks like your own natural blush. as if you just ran around the block or did a headstand. i use it under makeup (the blush color comes through my foundation) as well as alone. when wearing alone, no one would guess that this is actually makeup. yes, you have to blend it right away, but who cares? i find it much easier to apply than powders and other blushes. no one complains about how difficult it is to put on mascara do they (except me). there might be a small learning curve with this product but the results are worth it. maybe someday they'll take out those pesky parabens.

  • Avalon Organics CoQ10 Wrinkle Defense Cream

    if using natural, gentle ingredients on your skin is important to you then you'll love this product. i'm not sure it is exactly busting up my wrinkles, but it's nicely moisturizing and i like it. has a really nice smell, like the rest of the products in this line. the toner and cleansing milk smell like this stuff, but maybe a little better.

  • Avalon Organics COQ 10 Facial Cleansing Milk

    i'm such a sucker for products with so many natural, plant-based ingredients. also, i never (ever!) use products on my skin that contain parabens, mineral oil, or other petro-chemical derived ingredients. this product has a beautiful orangy/ mild lavendar smell, identical to the toner from this same line. this product works and causes no harm to my sensitive skin.

  • St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

    do you really need to read a review? this stuff has been around forever, and i've been using it forever. wonderful for use on the whole body, however i would avoid using it on the face. i'm trying to be extra gentle on my aging skin these days, which means using only products that are formulated specifically for delicate facial skin on my sensitive face. put this stuff to work on your heels, feet, legs, back, elbows etc. you'll be glad you did. tiny bits of apricot pit might coat your shower curtain, but it will come off when you rinse it.

  • Juice Beauty SPF 30 Sheer Moisturizer

    Juice Beauty SPF 30 Sheer Moisturizer

    you can love it if you try.

    i bought this sunscreen for the fabulous ingredients. it's so hard to find an SPF that doesn't make me feel sweaty and cause me to break out. this one is pretty organic and my skin loves it. it has a wonderful fresh smell, not that typical chemical smell you get from other sunscreens. the downside is that it really isn't very sheer. this is fine if you're going to wear it on the backs of your hands, but when you put it on your face it looks pretty ghosty. i have blended this awesome sunblock with a bit of my own mineral make up to make a shade that perfectly complements my skin tone. it's still not terribly sheer, but i feel like i'm getting great protection from harmful UVA/UVB. also, i don't have to put the make up on when i'm wearing this.
