I love to learn about and experiment with new products. I'm not afraid of aging, but I like to know what's fact and what's fiction in the anti-aging products on the market.

    Cover FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment

    by Kath

    I am in my late 40s, with oily and acne-prone skin exacerbated by menopausal hormone swings, so I was excited to try the Cover FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment ($38). I am not a huge fan of primers in general, as I think they add an unnecessary layer to my makeup routine. But if a product might possibly help against acne, and also mattify, exfoliate, and “extend foundation wear” (as the packaging stated), that would be terrific.

    The Cover FX Mattifying Primer goes on like any other primer, clear and sort of filmy and lightwei ...Read More...

    Osmosis Eye Pencil

    I have somewhat oily skin in the area around my eyes, and most eye makeup ends up in my wrinkles and creases after a few hours of wear. I am in my late 40s, so I guess this is to be expected!

    Arcona Reozone SPF 20

    I am a big fan of the Arcona Reozone 40 SPF 40 tinted moisturizer ($22), which gives a lot of bang for the buck, so I was eager to try Arcona Reozone SPF 20 ($28). The Reozone 20 SPF is not tinted, but goes on invisibly and soaks into the skin very well, without any greasy residue whatsoever. Makeup glides right on over it (whether powder, mineral or cream foundation). I have even applied a primer, then the Arcona Reozone, and then a regular cream foundation, then a little powder, ...Read More...
