Random beauty ramblings
Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Thursday, October 12, 2006 1:34 AM (Eastern)

A few updates on sundry topics:

* SLS-less shampoos and conditioner. Been mixing the Jason Vitamin E shampoo with the Kiss My Face Whenever shampoo. It works pretty well that way (I find the former too astringent, the latter too emollient). With this I use the Nature's Gate Herbal daily conditioner.

Overall, pretty happy with this new routine.

* Biotin for hair loss. Crap! The people in this house have taken all my biotin. I must replace it. I've gone a few days without it and have already noticed more hair fall-out (it's not dramatic fall-out, I'm just saying).

I tried the local GNC and felt disappointed. They had 600 mcg and 2500 mcg amounts; nothing in between. I don't feel 2500 mcg would be harmful but why the excess? Why only those amounts? It's nuts.

* Biotin for skin. It's the same biotin...as a pleasant side effect, my skin has gotten slightly better since taking it. (Smoother, softer, fewer bumps/clogged pores.)

* Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. waves to Arabella I tried this out; I will have to say, were I not already content with my own tinted sunscreen (a small amount of Zia liquid foundation mixed with TerraSport sunscreen SPF 30+), this might well be my grail foundation.

It feels light, not greasy at all, blends well, nice coverage (a bit more coverage imo than the name implies); overall a pleasure to wear. The shade I tried was a tad warm on me, but that was just that shade.

Yes it's $ but it's foundation (and it has SPF to boot). Your foundation products have to work. You can skimp on other stuff.

* Did I say I was going to knock Etro Heliotrope off my "bottle-worthy list"? Somebody better slap me, before I start to rust. :D It's a scent that grows on you.
