Buy It and Try It

Physician’s Formula New Products

I was excited to try two new products from Physicians Formula. One really exceeded my expectations and one didn’t work for me, but made a nice gift for a friend with a slightly darker skin tone.

I have a very fair/light complexion. Many times products simply are too dark for me. Even those that are advertised for fair skin can be hit or miss.

You would think that this product – the Physician’s Formula Eyebrightener–would work wonderfully for a person with fair/light skin. It is advertised as a way to brighten the eyelid area with subtle hints of pearlescent color for natural looking finish. The exact color is called Natural Eyelight. It is hypoallergenic, fragrance free, gluten-free, and dermatologist approved.

My friend who has just a little bit darker skin tone, but is still considered a fair/light complexion, looked fabulous. I think it is the skin undertone that makes the difference. She is a bit more sallow than I am.

It’s a miss for me but something my friend is excited to wear. So I’m happy for her.

The second  product I tried from Physician’s Formula is the glow boosting airbrushing bronzing veil bronze booster in light to medium. (This is a very long name!) It is advertised as a revolutionary Italian technology that combines the best features of powder, baked, and cream bronzers. This is a mistake proof formula which is stain free, streak free, orange free, and odor free. It is also hypoallergenic, fragrance free, gluten-free, and dermatologist approved.

IMG_1269This product worked wonderfully. It blended very easily. I used the brush that came with it, but in the future I will use my regular brushes. I used it on my face without any foundation and it made my skin look like it’d just been kissed by the sun. This is a definite “win.” I believe their advertising when it says it’s mistake proof. It looked flawless.

Praise for Heart & Mind:

“The author has managed to weave an intricate web about being true to yourself. One shouldn’t be guided or led by others. Above all, feel the magic in your own heart. As the fairy godmother believes sometimes it is best not to mess with destiny.” –Chief, USN Ret…VT Town—a Top 500 Reviewer on Amazon.com

Praise for The World In Front of Me:

“Picked up this short story because I noted it was previously published in Penumbra, which was a pretty high quality publication. And this story lived up to my expectations for a professional quality piece.

The story’s main idea reminded me a lot of the Lakeside community in Neil Gaimon’s American Gods, but I won’t say anymore about that for fear of giving away spoilers. But fans of Gaimon should really enjoy this story. Fans of strong women who make tough choices should enjoy this as well”—KSluss—Review on Amazon.com

Praise for Going Home:

“This is an excellent short story that is full of surprises for the reader. Martial law is about to be imposed in the colony.

A secret room, trips on a train and a clandestine meeting are all part of this superb short story.

Most highly recommended”—Off Grid . . . And Loving It—a Top 500 Reviewer on Amazon.com

Praise for Wonderland:

“The writing is beautiful, the characters are complex and thoroughly developed and the story is fascinating. All of it together creates a world you don’t want to leave when the book ends. I am so glad I discovered this author and I cannot wait for her next book”—Mary—Review on Amazon.com
