Number #1 And this is coming from an Esthetician :)cls821/19/2013 11:48PM

Ok, I can see both sides; I get why people may not want to mention the product & I also get ++ropmarmaladecat1/19/2013 5:47AM

Marma, I see both sides too. Sorry if I offended anyone. :(Ashley19581/19/2013 11:28AM

No need to apologise! You've done nothing wrong. :)marmaladecat1/19/2013 12:28PM

Thank you, I just feel like sometimes I annoy ppl. I don't mean to. Just trying to learn. :(Ashley19581/19/2013 3:14PM

SO freaking annoying. jetfan1/18/2013 5:28PM

simmer down now ;) ashley, I'd go with no. 3.jskellis1/19/2013 2:32PM

Oh goodness. Just skip the post, then.kf20121/19/2013 12:45AM

Sorry you're annoyed that I didn't list the names. No big deal. It wasn't the names in question.Ashley19581/18/2013 8:06PM

3 would be most protective. kitkat731/18/2013 12:40PM

Is #2 LRP mineral ss? I tried it for a couple days but returned it. Titanium alone is not enough +++Jewelx171/18/2013 11:41AM

Totally agree. Not sure about that either. Seems suspicious to me. Yes, it's LRP.Ashley19581/18/2013 11:42AM

why not list the name of the product along with the ingredients?coffeeandcream1/18/2013 10:22AM

Exactly....I tend to skip most all posts like this. JMObarbiH1/18/2013 10:25AM

Why would you skip just because the name was omitted? Doesn't change the info?kf20121/19/2013 12:45AM

dittogizmorules1/18/2013 10:33AM

Because ppl tend to be biased when they see product names - that's why. ;-)Ashley19581/18/2013 10:42AM

I always leave the names out, too.kf20121/19/2013 12:45AM

where do you even get that from? Agree w/Barbi 100%. you haven't been on this+jetfan1/18/2013 5:28PM

I've been on this board for 6 years. I've seen it happen myself.kf20121/19/2013 12:47AM

Actually, yes I have. I've seen it before. What's the big deal if I don't list the names? Calm down.Ashley19581/18/2013 8:05PM

Really? I think most of us who are ingredient nerds judge based on ingredients only. JMO barbiH1/18/2013 1:01PM

I'll be honest, I DO see people get biased here because of the product.kf20121/19/2013 12:46AM

Ita! We're not biased by names! Ashley925041/18/2013 6:55PM

I agree completely Barbi!JoshuaP1/18/2013 5:33PM

@Ashley: I find the whole guessing game thing to be annoying so I'll pass.barbiH1/18/2013 1:02PM

Oh, I would tell the name of anyone who wants to know. :) Just wanted unbiased opinions.Ashley19581/18/2013 11:02AM
