Hot Weather, Cool Looks

Find out how our advice worked for readers featured in our August 2007 Beautywise column.

We checked back in with the readers we featured in August's Beautywise column to see how the recommended products worked for them:

Clinique Turnaround Concentrate
I love this product! I don't know if I am imagining it, but my skin seems softer and the tone seems more even. I will definitely be using this under my moisturizer every day.
--Jennifer Ryan, 40, Boyton Beach, Florida

Olay Total Effects Moisturizing Vitamin Complex
This cream has a very nice moisturizing feeling. It feels very rich when you put it on your skin, but it's not greasy and doesn't leave a residue on your face.
--Lisa Lavely, 39, Scottsdale, Arizona

Skin Alison Raffaele Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15
I have used tinted moisturizers in the past and never really liked them, but this one had great coverage and blended really well-even with my fair skin. I would probably wear it on the weekends when I don't wear much makeup.
--Mary Ryan, 58, Worcester, Massachusetts

MAC Blot Film
I didn't quite get how these worked at first since there wasn't any info printed on the package. I just blotted away when I needed to, and it worked very well. I usually use powder for blotting and wasn't sure this would give the same effect, but it actually got rid of the shine better then the powders I have been using recently.
--Lisa Lavely

Fekkai Summer Hair Sun Bandana
I expected this product to be more of a mist formulation rather than a lotion. It smells great, but I really didn't notice any difference in my hair. I will keep using it this summer since I plan to be out in the sun a lot.
--Lisa Lavely

Garden Botanika Shadow Primer
I have used shadow primers before and never really liked them, but this primer was awesome. Over the weekend, I even used it alone as a replacement for my regular eye shadow. It looks really natural, and the color is perfect for my skin tone.
--Mary Ryan
