Here are all my reviews:
  • Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Age Shield Sunblock

    This is the perfect daily sunscreen. It layers beautifully over moisturizer, has a nice matte finish and doesn't make my skin feel "suffocated", a problem with other sunscreens. It's also great under makeup, it can almost function as a primer on more casual days. I use 70 SPF.

  • Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact

    I love Sandstone as a highlighter and subtle bronzer. I sweep it over the tops of my cheekbones with a fluffy brush, using a light pink blush on my cheeks. It has the perfect amount of shimmer, and the a compact lasts forever. I also have Brownie, which I don't like, it's a little too "muddy" for my fair complexion and I found it too glittery, but it would probably be lovely on someone else.

  • Davines MOMO conditioner

    Davines MOMO conditioner

    Serious Conditioner

    This is a great conditioner when my hair is feeling dry or stressed and I don't have time )or don't want) to use a mask or deep conditioning treatment. It's perfect after a day in the sun, swimming, at the beach or a few days after it's been highlighted. One tub lasts forever, I use so little (my hair is medium length). However, it's way too thick to use on my fine hair everyday and I'm not crazy about it's fragrance (it smells a little like playdoh).

  • Dr. Hauschka Lavender Bath

    Dr. Hauschka Lavender Bath

    Great fragrance, very soothing

    This is the bath oil that made me love lavender. It doesn't smell "old" (like my grandmother) or artificial, it's simply lovely. It's great in a bath before bed, but my favorite way to use it is a cotton compress on my face. It opens my pores, calms any redness or irritation and is deeply soothing.

    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    Not For Sensitive Skin!

    This is the worst stuff I've ever used. It was irritating, leading to the worst rosacea outbreak I've ever had (and it's happened to lots of people!). It also left my not-oily skin a greasy mess by the end of the day. HATE IT! Stay far away if you have sensitive skin!

  • Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream

    This is the only exfoliating cleanser I can use. I have sensitive skin with slight rosacea, most exfoliating products leave my skin screaming in pain and bright red, this is gentle, yet effective. I only use it in the mornings, it's not a great makeup remover. The downside is the smell, it's sort of yeast-y and unpleasant, but worth suffering through for the glow it gives my skin.

  • Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder

    Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder

    Most natural bronzer

    Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Natural is the only bronzer that doesn't make my fair skin look muddy and dirty. The slight pink tint makes it look truly natural, like I spent a day in the sun. The powder is very fine, looks natural when gently buffed onto skin. it does not irritate me very sensitive skin or clog pores.

  • Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
    10.0

    Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation

    Best foundation for uneven skin

    The best cream foundation I have ever used! I have fair, sensitive skin with a slight case of rosacea, this foundation covers any redness without causing any irritation or clogging pores. The medium coverage still looks natural (not mask-y) and it gives a glow without being too glittery or greasy looking. the key is to use the smallest amount needed and blend well with a sponge (damp for sheerer coverage). Cream Ivory is a great match for my fair, peachy undertoned skin.
