Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF 20 in Glow June 3, 2012

Today I bring you the Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF 20 in Glow from my May Birchbox.

I received this in GLOW. My skin town is just a hint darker than Liv Tyler – so this was pretty dark on me. I figured that I could try to run with it and go for a tanned look. Not so much; It did not even out my skin at all. Some places were dark, other light, and my arms just looked streaky. On top of that it felt oily all day.  I do not think this product was right for me, though for people whose skin is a lot closer to the shade of the product this may work great.

Would I buy this product again? No, it just didn’t work for me.

Will I finish the sample – nope, into the trash it goes.

Here’s the breakdown:

Sample Size  0.5 oz
Full Size  3.38 oz
Full Size Price $34.00
Sample Value $5.02

Murad – Hybrids Acne Primer – Review May 14, 2012

Today I bring you Murad’s Hybrids Acne Primer that I received in my April Beauty Bar Sample Society box. This medium thickness cream is tinted.  It is intended to help treat acne while providing a shine free base for additional makeup.

What do I think? Not so much. It is not for me at all. Lets start with the obvious, the color – it is very yellow. I am not. The next problem is that once it dries it gets cakey, which is not good for people with fine lines, heck for anyone who has a face that moves it is not good.

As far as if it helps with acne, I really can’t say. I can say that it does live up to the claim that it prevents shine.

Will I buy this again? No, it doesn’t do anything helpful for me

Will I finish the sample? No, it really didn’t work for me.

Here’s the breakdown:

Sample Size:   0.17 oz
Full Size: 1 oz
Full Size Price: $35.00
Sample Value: $5.95
