Hot Weather, Cool Looks
Find out how our advice worked for readers featured in our August 2007 Beautywise column.
We checked back in with the readers we featured in August'sBeautywise column to see how the recommended products worked forthem:
Clinique Turnaround Concentrate
I love this product! I don't know if I am imagining it, butmy skin seems softer and the tone seems more even. I willdefinitely be using this under my moisturizer every day.
--Jennifer Ryan, 40, Boyton Beach, Florida
Olay Total Effects Moisturizing Vitamin Complex
This cream has a very nice moisturizing feeling. It feelsvery rich when you put it on your skin, but it's not greasy anddoesn't leave a residue on your face.
--Lisa Lavely, 39, Scottsdale, Arizona
Skin Alison Raffaele Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15
I have used tinted moisturizers in the past and never reallyliked them, but this one had great coverage and blended reallywell-even with my fair skin. I would probably wear it on theweekends when I don't wear much makeup.
--Mary Ryan, 58, Worcester, Massachusetts
MAC Blot Film
I didn't quite get how these worked at first since therewasn't any info printed on the package. I just blotted away when Ineeded to, and it worked very well. I usually use powder forblotting and wasn't sure this would give the same effect, but itactually got rid of the shine better then the powders I have beenusing recently.
Fekkai Summer Hair Sun Bandana
I expected this product to be more of a mist formulationrather than a lotion. It smells great, but I really didn't noticeany difference in my hair. I will keep using it this summer since Iplan to be out in the sun a lot.
Garden Botanika Shadow Primer
I have used shadow primers before and never really likedthem, but this primer was awesome. Over the weekend, I even used italone as a replacement for my regular eye shadow. It looks reallynatural, and the color is perfect for my skin tone.
