I really wanted to like this as it’s simple and meant to be non irritating, but it can really sting - especially my eyes area. I even tested it against the dermo cleanser by putting both on a cotton pad and applying to each eye.. and there is definitely something in this that burns (even if I wet my face first).
It doesn’t dry the skin out or cause breakouts and it doesn’t leave a residue. Again, it is also fairly cheap on Europe and somewhat readily available. I prefer the Avène cleansers or the Cerave hydrating cleanser.

I like this moisturiser a lot. It is very simple and with continuous use appears to have balanced my skin in terms off hydration. I am no longer greasy at lunchtime, nor do I wake up greasy. However, it isn’t enough for me in the cooler months and I need to go a bit heavier. I have been taking very low dose Roaccutane for 12 months now and now have normal skin in terms of oiliness but it’s very sensitive, and it doesn’t take much for my skin barrier to be compromised. This product is fragrance free and preservative free which suits me. I love the texture, it’s very watery and at first I thought it would be useless but give it chance. In Europe it’s readily available in the pharmacy and is inexpensive - a definite repurchase.

I am loathed to give LRP a negative review, as their products are usually a safe bet for my sensitive skin. However, this irritated the hell out of my eyes and I do not see how it can be suitable for those with sensitive skin and rosacea. Just no. I have trialled it on and off all week and every time I use it my eyes burn immediately. Tonight I used it as a first cleanse and purposely followed it up with a much harsher foaming cleanser which contains AHA/BHA and SLS - which soothes my skin and gave me no reaction whatsoever. So I know there is something in the cleansing gel my eyes do not like. That being said, it is unfragranced and a pleasant texture that leaves little to no residue so perhaps it’s worth a try if you don’t have any sensitives, particularly with your eyes.

After using The Body Shop Cocoa Butter lip balm I didn't think I would find anything better. When I couldn't find that anymore I started looking for a new one and I didn't want one with mineral oil/patrolatum, paraffin, etc. So I tried this and I was hooked. It's better than the TBS one. I have a very bad habit of chewing my lips. I apply this before going to bed and wake up with smooth lips. I love it. I also apply a little bit before I apply lipstick. Love it! Tasteless, odorless. A winner.

This is not bad for the price, €18. I've bought it three or four times now and use it mostly on normal days where I'm not doing any special socialising. I use a more expensive one from Sisley for special occasions.My skin is quite red from broken capillaries so I need a full coverage and this does that.I recommend applying it with a damp sponge or beauty blender and then finish with a setting powder. I have tried applying it with a brush and with fingers but the result was too heavy and ended up looking caked. I think the colours are a bit paler than usual so try a couple of samples before you choose your shade.If you have oily skin and dilated pores, ( which I had before discovering a fix for that - https://www.makeupalley.com/product/showreview.asp/ItemId=200757 ) , then you might find that this foundation will separate on the oily areas, it doesn't absorb the oil so it becomes dislodged by it, and sink into pores while dislodging it a little from the surrounding pore area thus highlighting the pores. You would need a mattifying primer or a moisturiser. I like this one - https://www.makeupalley.com/product/showreview.asp/ItemId=201612If you have dry skin this is really comfortable to wear. Good for winter.
