This is one of my favorite moisturizers, and I have tried almost all of them. It sinks into your skin, doesn't just sit on top, it's not greasy, smells great (the scent will eventually dissipate), makes your skin feel softer and look more "plump", and I love it under my makeup so much that I no longer use a primer! I use it in the morning and at night without any skin irritation (I have super sensitive skin), oiliness, greasiness, flakiness, etc. and it keeps my skin moisturized all day. I have a lot of moisturizers that feel great at first but as they wear throughout the day they will get greasy or my makeup will start to separate where I have dryness/oiliness. Some moisturizers will make my skin super oily in some spots and super dry in others, thankfully this one is perfect! One of the best moisturizers for the price-point. The great thing about Sephora (and any product they have) is if you don't love it, return it! But I have no reason to return this...I love it! I also adore that it's made without parabens or sulfates!

Once again Philosophy has made an amazing product for super sensitive skin! This color corrective protector is absolutely fabulous. I found this product at my Sephora when I was in desperate need of some color correcting! I had an allergic reaction to a medication and some other cosmetics I had been using. My face was red, itchy, blotchy, painful...just about every bad thing that a face can be, that's what mine was. I was afraid to use anything because of the condition my skin was in, this was the perfect solution. It's light, creamy, calming, and made my skin feel soft and soothed. I use this as a primer or just by itself when I need to let my skin breathe a little. It's yellow in color but when it's rubbed into the skin it disappears and calms the skin and the redness. It will not magically make your skin void of all redness, but I haven't found a product that does. It will, however, significantly reduce redness and inflammation. I'm extremely pleased with this product and will continue to love and use this!

I adore this foundation! It's super easy to use and it looks wonderful. I have super sensitive skin and have avoided most mineral foundations because they look totally unnatural on my skin. Either they look flaky or greasy, either way it's not a good look. This just looks beautiful. You can easily tap it on for a light, clean, supernatural look of perfect skin, or you can use a small concealer brush to cover imperfections and then tap it on like normal for a more full coverage look. When I'm wearing this most people just comment on how beautiful my skin is, not that my makeup looks great. It's also perfect for on-the-go because it's so easy and clean to apply, there's a mirror on top of the cap and it's super purse friendly...no more hoping the cap doesn't come off and get powder all over your purse! This is one of my favorite foundations and absolutely my go-to when I'm in a hurry or just want to look gorgeous and natural! It also looks great in natural or super-harsh lights, and shows up perfect in pictures, no white-washed look, just glowing, beautiful skin! Philosophy products do what they say they will, I'll continue to be a Philosophy Girl!

I absolutely love this one step cleanser! This has made my cleansing routine so simple. There's no need for a separate eye makeup remover, long-wear makeup remover, cleanser, and toner...it's all in one! I wear makeup that has to stay on, and I mean all day long, and this cleanser easily removes even the longest wearing foundation and eyeliner, all while leaving my face soft and clear! It's free of unnecessary chemicals, has a pleasing, soft scent, easily cleans makeup brushes, and has NEVER broken me out. It doesn't leave your skin stripped of natural oils it needs, but it also doesn't leave your skin greasy or with a film like some will. I've also found that I can make one bottle (16oz.) last approximately 3-4 months (and yes, that's washing my face morning and night) so it doesn't cost any more than if you bought a face wash at the grocery store, and it works so much better. This product it amazing for sensitive skin, which I have, and soothes it just as well as it cleanses. I will never be without my Purity Made Simple and I recommend it everyone who compliments me on my now clear skin!

Rimmel London Clean Finish Foundation
I really wanted to like this foundation, mostly because of the price and the claim that is was light and clean-finishing. I found it to be heavy, streaky, just kind of odd all the way around, and heaven forbid if you're caught in the rain wearing this (it will literally roll off your face)! It also had a strange smell. Normally I can get over the scent of things if it has other qualities that I like but this was too much. It didn't blend out, with a primer or without, whether I used a brush, my fingers, or a sponge. I seriously tried everything to get this foundation to work but unfortunately it did not. The longest I was able to get it to stay on was about 45 minutes before it started changing color. This is one of the worst foundations I've ever tried, and I've tried 100's!

Cover FX Total Coverage Cream <3
I absolutely love this makeup! I recently found out that I have a severe sulfa allergy with a sensitivity to sulfates. This is one of the very few foundations that does not contain sulfates! I was leery to try anything new after breaking out so badly (all over my body) that it physically hurt for water to touch my face and body, however, I asked some trusted friends to help me out and this is what they recommended. I thought it was going to be entirely too heavy but I was wrong. It covered all of my breakouts (which looked a lot like a chemical burn or a severe sunburn) and I just looked like I had perfect, flawless, beautiful skin. It is a little expensive but I've found that I use so much less compared to what I used to use (Revlon Colorstay) so it evens out to the same cost per month. You don't need very much of this product to get flawless perfection and it stays on very well. It's also super easy to touch up if you need too, just tap the brush, with a tiny amount of product, over the spot that needs a touch up and you're done. I haven't had any reaction to this foundation and my skin is getting better and better everyday! I'm not sure what I would have done these last couple weeks without this makeup!

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum
I really wanted to love this product but I just couldn't. I enjoyed the consistency of the serum and I loved the smell, unfortunately it broke me out in little red bumps. I'm still working on getting them cleared up, hopefully it will happen sooner rather than later. I've heard great things about this product from some trusted friends in the skincare business, they actually swear by it. I personally have very sensitive skin and was looking for something to brighten it a bit and this just wasn't the right product for me.

philosophy eye believe
I adore this product. I have the benefit of being able to sample all of the top beauty products out there and this one truly does what it says! It's a wonderful consistency and feels like velvet. It keeps the eye and lip area smooth and firm. I actually use this over a lip stain that I have to keep it in place, moist, and soft looking. I'm big into products that I can use for more than one purpose and this one definitely does that! So pleased with my sample that I bought two tubes, which I'm sure will last me forever since you only have to use a tiny bit. Great purchase.
