I had very VERY bad flaking and this has completely eradicated it. Originally this made my face extremely red, but I discovered that because I have dry skin, I can't use Benzoyl Peroxide AND AHA on the same night, so I skip the BP when using this & it works perfectly. You only need the tiniest bit so the bottle lasts forever. Adore this AHA!
Without understatement, this stuff has changed my life. I had moderate acne, dry skin, resistant to salicylic acid, topical treatments and acne antibiotics. My dermatologist refused me Accutane due to the side effects and my history of depression when I discovered Acne.org. My skin is 1000 times better than it was. What I will say is LISTEN TO YOUR SKIN - while Dan gives guidance, no-one knows your skin better than you. I don't need as much as oily girls, and because I'm only treating my chin and forehead, I use less than 1 pump, twice a day. It did make me very flaky and red for the first few months but it was definitely worth it. Wonderful, amazing stuff!

Great oil, sinks in quickly & gives my skin a real glow. Regularly on offer to boot! Will repurchase for sure.
Nice conditioner. To be honest I haven't noticed anything regarding the vibrancy of my colour, and it doesn't do really deep conditioning, but it does leave hair soft. Good price but probably won't repurchase.
Love this liner! It takes a little while to dry but once it has it doesn't budge. The semi-flocked tip means you can get as thin or thick a line as you want. The formula doesn't irritate my eyes & the price can't be beaten. Definite repurchase!

I have a small free sample of this. Does a decent job at keeping sweat at bay but leaves terrible white marks. Won't purchase.

This really is great! It feels like a gel but provides the moisture of a cream. Having said that, it hasn't made me break out which some very rich moisturisers can. Sinks in quickly and you only need a small amount. I knocked off one lippy because I'm a poor student & so this is slightly out of my price range, but not insanely expensive by any means. If you have dry, flaky skin, definitely give this a go!
HG mineral foundation! Gives great coverage, is super cheap & customer service is excellent. Applied with a slightly damp brush this gives my skin an amazing, airbrushed look. Doesn't break me out, doesn't make my skin dry, and I have a perfect colour match in Blondie. Have already repurchased!

Love it! Does the job and for a good price. Plus not animal tested, yay Revlon! Will buy again :)

I'm surprised that this has such a low rating - I love it. I have quite dry skin, but 3 pumps with a drop or two of jojoba oil & this stuff keeps my skin hydrated all day. No 'white face' like alot of SPF moisturisers, and although expensive the bottle is lasting me a long time. Will definitely buy again!

This worked wonderfully for a few days but then dried my lips out something silly. Now every time a use it after a few hours my lips are cracked and incredibly sore - it must be the peppermint oil. Won't repurchase.
Wonderful eyeshadow brush! I really thought my cheap, drugstore one was fine until I bought this & the difference is incredible. It picks up lots of pigment but can be used for just a light sweep of colour really easily. Hasn't splayed after washing or lost any hairs at all. Fabulous & would repurchase.
I have the Shimmer & Shade in Pink Me Up. I am quite fair - NW20ish - and I have to be extremely careful not to overdo it with this, because one brushstroke too many and I end up looking like I have dirty cheeks! That being said, the staying power really is excellent, and the packaging is gorgeous for the price. Won't repurchase however as Collection 2000's animal testing policy is pretty shady.
Sadly this stuff does absolutely nothing for me. It doesn't quench dryness, it doesn't deal with flakiness, it doesn't do anything for my skin. It leaves my skin very shiny & I don't find it a good base for make-up. As a night time moisturiser I wake up with very tight, dry skin. Also, this leaves my face very red. No irritation, no burning or any other sensation, it just leaves it... red. Which is a total pain to apply make-up over. Definitely will not repurchase.
HG cleanser! Gets rid of all my make-up and doesn't leave me with any uncomfortable dryness. A bottle lasts forever too so it works out crazy cheap. Really amazing stuff, will repurchase forever!
