What's all the fuss about mineral makeup?

Bare Escentuals i.d. bareMinerals Foundation - SPF 15Bare Escentuals i.d. bareMinerals Foundation - SPF 15 Sunscreen is made of only pure, crushed minerals from the earth, i.d. bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation looks like a powder, feels like a cream and buffs on like silk, giving skin a natural luminosity, and feels as if you are not wearing any makeup at all. The coverage is flawless, free of preservatives, talc, oil, waxes, fragrances, and other chemicals that can irritate skin and cause breakouts.

i.d. bareMinerals is one of the most natural and effective makeup collections around. Women with skin conditions, such as sun spots, acne, and rosacea, as well as those with dry, oily, and sensitive complexions, claim i.d. bareMinerals has improved the overall health and appearance of their skin. But these wonder-powders do more than just make you look pretty, they also contain natural sunscreens that protect your skin from the sun. So much so that i.d. bareMinerals Foundation is actually recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. The proof is in the powder.

If it’s possible to fall in love with a beauty product, consider yourself smitten.

Neutrogena Skin Smoothing Body Lotion

Just as this product was starting to gain attention by sufferers of keratosis pilaris, it turns out that it is no longer available. After contacting Neutrogena we were told that it has indeed been discontinued (as of January 2006, along with another Neutrogena favorite "Multi-Vitamin Acne Treatment").

Unfortunately it did not meet Neutrogena's expected sales and so the decision was made to discontinue it. What a shame too, as a KP sufferer myself I had recently started using it and thought it worked really well as a treatment.

If you really loved Neutrogena's Skin Smoothing Body Lotion, a very similar product to try is Glytone's Body Lotion (from the Glytone Keratosis Pilaris Kit). For other products used to treat keratosis pilaris go to www.helpforkp.com.

Neutrogena Skin Smoothing Body Lotion users can contact Neutrogena (USA only) at 1-800-582-4048 to request this product back on shelves.
