  • Iman Creme to Powder Foundation

    I had made it to the point where I had given up on foundation. If I found my skin color, the undertone was wrong, usually making me look ashy. If I went for the undertone, it was too dark. I tried mixing multiple shades together to get a color, but I only got so so results (and it was way too much work!). I'm no foundation novice. I tried Bare Minerals, Revelon, Max Factor, Fashion Fair, Cover Girl, Maybelline, L'Oreal, Avon, MAC, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Lancome, Black Radience, Origins, Too Faced, Black Opal, (and that's just off the top of my head). I came to the conclusion that I must be some odd color that cannot ever be matched. But I was wrong. I did some rearch online about Iman, then went to Ulta and bought Clay #3. It didn't look bad, but when I applied heavy coverage, it was too orange & too dark so I took it back. I found my best match in Clay #2 because it has just the right combination of orange/ yellow mixture without any of that chalk like ashy undertone. It stays on well through the day, but it does transfer some. When I set it with the loose powder in Sand medium, and it looks perfect all day.

  • Iman Luxury Loose Powder

    This product goes on smooth and lasts all day. It keeps shine to a minimum even in 100+ degree weather. A small amout of this product goes a long way. I also like the dispensing method. There is a twist top powder dispenser on top that allows only a small amount of powder to be release in a single use. This virtually eliminates waste and mess. I used the Clay #2 in the cream to powder, and use this powder (Sand medium because the clay powder was too orange) on top in the summer to keep a look of perfection all day!

  • Murad Sheer Lustre Day Moisture SPF 15

    This didn't work well for me at all. It left my normal skin feeling sticky. I was had a film on my face that didn't go away. I don't wear makeup often and film made my skin look shiny, like a very thin film of plastic wrap was on my face.

  • Murad Renewing Cleansing Cream

    I found this to be a nice (not great) cleanser for me. It was gentle, and didn't leave my skin dry. My skin looked a little dull after using, not bright as it does with my favorite cleanser. I would rather have a wash that cleans a little better than this one.

  • Mario Badescu Skin Care Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel

    I truly enjoy this product. The smell actually reminds me of dishwashing liquid. But the results on my skin are wonderful! I have normal skin. This was perfect for me. It left my skin feeling fresh, looking radient, and so soft and smooth!

  • St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

    This smells nice, and works well for me. I use gently or can be too harsh (my skin was damaged after first use). I don't like all the chemicals in this though (should have read the ingredient list BEFORE purchasing). I probably won't purchase again, but it exfoliates well without drying my skin and smells good, so it's okay for now.

  • Soft Sheen Carson Dark & Lovely Hair Care Conditioning Shampoo

    It felt okay during the wash (easy comb out), but left my hair dry afterward. It also coated my hair so that after the blow dry it was stiff. Maybe my hair is too fine, I don't know, but this just didn't do it.

  • Soft Sheen Carson Optimum Care Anti-Breakage Therapy Stay Strong Conditioner

    I really hoped this would get my hair in shape, but it didn't. It didn't help me avoid breakage AT ALL, nor did it make my hair soft. It smelled nice, but that's about it.

  • Arbonne Intelligence Daily Self Adjusting Conditioner

    The reason I liked this (along with using the shampoo) is that it works quickly. I could shampoo, put in conditioner, shower, rinse and that was it. It wasn't the most moisturizing, but I was shocked that it left my hair manageable and soft in so little time. After a while I left these products (too hard to find, and not quite enough moisture).

  • Arbonne Intelligence Daily Self Adjusting Shampoo

    I have very dry hair & wash twice a week. This was my favoirte shampoo. The more I used it, the better. Twice a week left my hair a little dry. Somehow when I used it more, my hair came out shiner & softer. In the end, I decided to go with a more moisturizing shampoo. This would probably be great for hair that isn't SO dry.
