Laura's Latest Beauty Review



These are my three latest beauty product purchases: Lorac Natural performance foundation in a color called np 3, Lorac Baked perfecting powder in color pf2 and Derma e Anti Aging Pycnogenol moisturizing cream which is all natural for sensitive skin.

Here are my reviews:
 Lorac Natural Performance Foundation in shade NP3 allows for great coverage. The fact that it is oil, paraben and fragrance free is what attracted me, however I ended up returning it because it was just a little too heavy for my skin plus the shade didn't quite match my pale skin. It's not easy being a pale girl in a tan world! Also, it has no SPF which I know is not good because I am supposed to protect my skin from the sun's harmful rays, but SPF breaks me out into a rash! So, I wear a wide brim hat whenever I am outside to shade my face. This foundation rocks for anyone who wants full coverage. It goes on smooth and doesn't make me itch. Go to your local Sephora and get a sample today!

Lorac Baked perfecting powder was a nice consistency, but not matte enough. I don't like to shine so I returned that also. BTW, Sephora's return policy ROCKS. They don't make you feel bad for returning! You know how you feel when they ask if you used it, and you just want to lie and say no because you feel terrible returning a used product?! At Sephora the sales girl asked me if I had a chance to use it at home. That was a really nice way to word it :) She made me feel more comfortable with the fact that I was returning a used product. The sales girl told me that she never wanted me to keep anything that I didn't absolutely love!

I have seen the Soothing Moisturizing Creme with anti aging Pycnogenol by Derma e at the Natural Living Center in Bangor Maine and have hesitated to purchase it because I am not sure about their return policy. I have a feeling that if you brought in your own little sample jar they would let you take home a little to test, but I took a gamble and purchased the full size and I am not at all sorry! It has done nothing but good for my sensitive itchy skin. And it is not too greasy so it works well under my make up. This is definitely a keeper and I highly recommend! 

Have you or would you try any of these products? I would love to hear about your latest beauty purchases! Please feel free to leave a comment!
