  • @ preciousia - Oxybenzone was the ingredient that was not reef friendly that I know about. There are others, I am sure. 
  • @ preciousia - Cotz is a brand I have heard of, but never tried.  I think I have a sample of it, a tinted version.  I tend to shy away from trying new products very often when it comes something I put on my face, too much history of breakouts from t…
  • @ preciousia - I actually live on the East Coast of the US. Our climate is very moderate here, not terribly hot in the summer and not terribly cold in the winter.  We have traveled to some very hot and humid climates and I found the Blue Lizard to b…
  • @ preciousia - Blue Lizard is made to Australian standards, which are more stringent than the US standards, thus the name. Or that is my understanding of the reason for the name. What I do know for sure is the dermatologists here love it. 
  • Probably not up to the standards in Australia, but I use Blue Lizard for Faces on my face. Their advertising says they use Australian standards for formulation, hence the name. Cosmetically elegant, no. Effective? Yes. It worked well in the Caribbea…
  • @ Randy - It works! I cleaned off the makeup last night using just the wonder cloth. I went back with my EVOO just to see if  I would get extra product off my face. There was nothing left to remove.   The mascara is water resistant, for the record. …
  • I can do that but it might not be so accurate an experiment for others to go by since I don't wear a huge amount of makeup.  
  • Think of it as a bath scrubby that is in a rectangular shape. It is, literally, like a towel, but made of a material that happens to do a good job of exfoliating your skin. Just don't scrub too hard. Ouch.
  • I had scalp problems that got worse over time. My scalp would itch and burn when I shampooed every other day. It was really bad in winter. I  tried sulfate free shampoo and the itching and burning went away. Of course that also leads to not being ab…
  • I bought some directly from the Salux website to try. No one in my very rural area sells anything like it so I had to order online. Ordering from their website was somewhat less expensive per towel than ordering from amazon. I do love mine. I use it…
  • I have used this product for years.  http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/wonder-cloth/1011553966 It seems similar to the MakeUp Eraser. I use extra virgin olive oil to take my makeup off and use this, wrung out in hot tap water, to wipe of…
  • @ Sarah - powder blush over cream blush definitely helps with the staying power (cream blushes don't last on me either). Your tinted sunscreen (wait for it to dry), then primer (again, wait for it to dry), then blusher might work. But if you keep ad…
  • @ Sarah - maybe letting the sunscreen 'set' for a few minutes would help. I have found it helps makeup application enormously to set a timer for 10 minutes to give the sunscreen time to sink in fully. Probably just me, but it might be worth a try.  
  • I would appreciate it. There are a couple of primers I have found that have lavender derivative as an ingredient as possibles. Unfortunately primers with silicones have become an issue for me so I need to find an alternative.
  • Which reminds me.....there was a question about a year ago on whether lavender and the derivatives thereof are bad for your skin (cause cell death) or not. Any hope of a definitive answer on that one?
  • I use an Aquis towel for plopping my hair after washing and to scrunch my hair to begin the drying process after applying styling products. I have been using one for several years and it has proved to be well worth the money I spent on it. Mine is t…
  • Sarah is correct. If you don't use sulfates in shampoos you shouldn't use any silicones that are not water soluble. Over time the silicones will build up. VO5 conditioners are good for co-washing and so are Suave Naturals.   Not being able to use su…
  • I use Marula Oil under my sunscreen during the day. It has lots of nice antioxidants, which help the sunscreen to work even better by working to get rid of free radicals. I have found that cleaning my face with extra virgin olive oil makes it less o…
  • With my oily skin I don't use cream shadows, they crease like mad. Powder stays put much better for me. I do have a suggestion that might help. I am not sure it would work with a cream shadow underneath, but you can always experiment! For times when…
  • All I can say, Tabby, is nail polish isn't what it used to be. Several years ago I had a cheap 99 cent polish and cheap 99 cent base coat I could apply and reasonably expect to get at least a week's wear out of with no problems. Now? Not so much. It…
  • Revlon ColorStay works well for tightlining. I love the look of tightening, but the eye docs I have asked about it REALLY do not like the idea.
  • Yay, Sarah! Are you noticing visible improvements in skin tone and texture?
  • I just know it works well for me and the dermatologist said it is an acceptable way to reapply over makeup.  Thanks, Randy!
  • I hope the link works.  http://www.amazon.com/Colorescience-Sunforgettable-Mineral-Powder-Brush/dp/B002FCDC1A/ref=pd_sim_194_15?ie=UTF8&refRID=1KFFQ7FFPGGAMCXAJHE3 This is the ingredient list as per the amazon website : Titanium Dioxide 12%, Zi…
  • I have no idea how to explain why and how powders stick to skin. Maybe Randy can explain that one to everyone. Because I don't breathe in while applying the Colorscience product I am not concerned about breathing in anything I should not. Using a sp…
  • My brushes are mostly eco brand, plus one e.l.f. blusher brush, not expensive at all. After more than a year of cleaning daily with alcohol, and washing on a regular basis with soap and water, all the brushes are still in excellent shape. That is on…
  • My dermatologist gave a thumbs up to Colorscience Sunforgettable. It is a powder sunscreen you use to reapply sunscreen over makeup. The product is not meant to be your main sunscreen, but it is good for reapplying to re-up your sunscreen during the…
  • @ Randy - I am really interested to hear what you come up with on this topic.   The video referenced above is the one I had found a while back.  Makeup artists HAVE TO sanitize their makeup in order to be able to use it client to client.  Keeping it…
  • I clean my makeup brushes every time I use them. I used to wash them once a week, but I found a better solution while watching a makeup artist named Wayne Goss on YouTube. He suggested getting 91% isopropyl alcohol, putting it in a small spray bottl…
  • I wish I knew the answer to that one, Sarah. I do have a comment though. While researching what might help my skin recover from the effects of using efudex for 21 days I came across astaxanthin. I have been taking it for about 3 months and it does s…
