First off I want to say that I've had this product for over a year and have just now gotten around to using it. I got a pretty intense sunburn last week though, so I decided there was no better time to bust this out. It's fabulous. It is never irritating, didn't burn or sting my sensitive sunburnt skin. It actually helped to heal my skin and speed up the recovery time. My peeling was kept to a minimal. It's safe for any skin type so I think this may be my go to summer moisturizer for a while! I have also been using a ton of Tend Skin lately. I applied this over the Tend Skin and noticed that my skin heals quicker. This is definitely a product for me! I would recommend it to anyone seeking hydration and relief from sunburn, windburn or shaving irritation.
Alright, so I wrote this a while back. Who's counting? I still love this product and this should only go to reaffirm that I truly do love PTR's star child.
*Clean sheets.....They smell fantastically fresh, are crisp and make your bed all the more welcoming.
*A smile.......If you're having a hard time getting yourself out of a funk, making someone else's day can do wonders for two.
*Your favorite song....Nothing makes you smile quite like the feeling that someone understand what you're going through, let alone someone you don't know
*Coming home to a clean house.....It's free and so relaxing.
*An old skool letter from a friend.....You know you like recieving them, why not spread the love???
*A call from a long lost friend.......The holidays are coming up, why not make up for lost time?
*Going the extra mile......even seemingly normal things like breakfast are elevated to the next level with a little extra care.
So...today was pretty standard. I went to work, the grocery store and came home. Basic enough on the surface. What makes this standard day stand out from all the rest is that upon arriving at home, we noticed an ice cream truck just leaving our neighborhood. Eric sprang from the car, flagged the guy down and purchased my first ever "from the ice cream truck treat". I cried I was so happy. Sure, that's something most people have done before but I grew up in a very rural area, so to me that was a huge ordeal. I am so excited I can't stop smiling! Yipee!!!!!!!!

Alright, okay, I admit it. I'm addicted to cleansers. I think I've tried almost every one available at Sephora and Nordstrom. Every cleanser is, in my eyes, a new and exciting oppurtunity for great skin. I've found many that I like a lot but only one that I love. I always always buy Philosophy Purity. Now that they have it in a foam, I'm even more addicted to the gentle all in one superhero product! It takes off all my makeup, including eye makeup without irritating my skin to the slightest degree. Even though I'm a contact lens wearer, I can apply this product liberally all over my eyelids and open them to be perfectly fine! It works as a hydrating cleanser and toner as well and never leaves my skin feeling stripped of it's natural moisture! Now's the time to stock up!
From the moment I was introduced to this product, I've been in love with it! This product does it all!!! Use it as a primer for flawless, smooth as a rose petal base for your mineral makeup. It does a fabulous thing when applied underneath mineral foundations such as Bare Minerals on deeper skin tones: it nixes the ashiness and gives a lit from within glow. I absolutely love doing that!!! Apply it over your favorite liquid foundation, mine is Dior Forever, and it sets your makeup beautifully! It gives you that luminous look with optical light diffusers ala the Clinique Loose Gentle Light Powder. My absolute absolute FAVORITE use for this product though is clean up!!! If you're like me and your shadow brushes get a little too shadow laden and pigment rains down on your cheeks where only complexion products need go all too often, this product saves the day. Just a small amount of this miracle makeup swiped across the affected area and you're good to go. It takes away all the runaway pigment and you never have to remove any of your other makeup. I mean, yeah, I know I could put on my complexion products last or hold a tissue beneath my eyes but I'm a rebel. Cargo Liquid Powder saves the day!!! All that and it's oil free! I'm in LOVE!!
