i bought this in white to use on my waterline. bottom line is it's super inexpensive, works well, pigmented, creamy...doesn't last but for the price, you really can't beat it.
i actually use this as a brush cleanser and it works wonderfully. it cleans well, leaves my brushes so soft and smelling great! super cheap and effective :)
i use a tiny bit on the middle of my face around my nose and on my forehead. i mix it with water and leave it on for a few minutes than gently rinse it off. it does sting a little but it clears up my skin better than anything else i've ever tried. i use this as a 'treatment' once a week or so just because i don't think i can handle using it any more frequently.
Moisturizers -Sukin - Moisture Restoring Night Cream

like all Sukin products i've tried, i absolutely love this! it's really thick and moisturising but it's not heavy and it absorbs really quickly without feeling greasy. it's $AUD 20 for a jar which is pretty good for such a quality night cream. definitely recommend and would repurchase
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - EXTRA VIRGIN Coconut Oil (All brands)

after hearing so many amazing reviews for coconut oil, i decided to give it a go and i've been trying to convert my skincare routine into organic and natural. i use coconut oil on my face as a cleanser in the shower and then on damp hair afterwards as a leave-in treatment. both work fantastically! i also use coconut oil as a shaving cream and it leaves my skin so soft i don't need moisturiser afterwards! love love love this :)
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy

i think the clear scalp and hair shampoo and conditioner are great! they work wonderfully, leave my hair soft and shiny and leaves a nice scent in my hair. a little expensive but to me it's worth it :)
this is great affordable body moisturiser - lightweight, absorbs quickly and does its job.
i love this lip balm - it's super moisturising, it smells really yummy and it leaves a healthy sheen on mine lips. i hate dipping my fingers into pots for any product but for this, i can overlook it :)
i use oatmeal as a cleanser and it does an amazing job of soothing redness, leaving my skin feeling so soft and nourished, like i just soaked it in cream or something! i use this when i have active breakouts or redness and it smells amazing on your face especially in the morning!
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray

this is a great affordable heat protectant - it works well, smells great and is super easy to use.
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Deep Clean Long-Last Shine Control Daily Scrub
cathyz123 9/23/2012 6:34:00 AM
i love this scrub because it leaves my skin feeling really soft and clean but i'm not going to repurchase because it can be a little drying because there is a lot of alcohol in the scrub. also, it smells very strongly of rice vinegar which is a little offputting after a while.
this is a great mascara - it lengthens and volumises really nicely. for such an affordable price, i'd highly suggest giving it a go.
i hated the original BB cream but after seeing so many good reviews for this new oily/combo bb cream, i had to try it. it's definitely a light coverage but a pretty good coverage nonetheless - pretty much a light coverage foundation. i love that it's lightweight, dries matte and has SPF. it doesn't last all day and i still get shiny, but overall, a great product, especially for the price. HOWEVER i would not repurchase because of the high alcohol content :/
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Perfection Volumizing Mascara
cathyz123 9/9/2012 12:04:00 AM
first things first, the spikes on the wand are a little stiff so be careful not to stab yourself! i don't find this gives me enough volume to be classified as a 'volumizing' mascara but it does give a decent amount of volume, length and definition for an everyday look. it doesn't clump or smudge and it's very affordable.
i use sea salt mixed with water and put it in a spray bottle and use it twice a day as my toner. it works wonders for me as it calms my redness, minimises pores and clears breakouts! it also controls oil on my t-zone! super easy and affordable and incredibly effective!!!
