This was okay scrub. I didn't expect it to whiten my face an it didn't. I wanted to try st. ives scrub, because i had heard so much good from them and the normal one eas ran out so i bought this. Good product but nothing really special.
Cleansers -Biotherm - Biosensitive Softening Foaming Cleansing Water

There was nothing wrong with this cleanser really but the price was too high. I have had similar foaming cleanser from aco eg and other pharmacy brands and this was no different compared to them. It was gentle and cleansed my skin well without drying but i would never buy this again. You can fing similar cleanser with affordable price.
The jar was really small and i thought it'd soon end but it just lasted and lasted forever. I thought i'd have it years! It was mild and gentle and didn't cause any breakouts. It's also easy to take with you if you're going somewhere eg. for a weekend. I recommend!
Overall it's quite okay foundation. The coverage is light. I have some acne scars and large pores and it doesn't cover those completely. Also i didn't like the consistency that much. It feels a bit foamy when you're applying and i find it for some reason irritating. It didn't cause any impurities or zits which is good, i brake out easily, but still this didn't convince me.
Grey brown is the perfect colour for me. Usually i buy the ysl one but this is a cheaper obtion for that. If yiou need a clour that is not too warm and too brown this may just be for you. I recommed to check this out.
Pressed Powders -Lumene - Matte Harmony Mineral Powder

I like this cos it's talc free. It seems that my pores gets clogged by talc and it's really hard to find a pressed powder without talc. I think this is quite okay powder and there's nothing to be complained about.
Brows -Yves Saint Laurent - Dessin Des Sourcils- Eyebrow Pencil

I use this in shade number 5. I like the colour because it's not too dark or too brown and it's a grey tone in it. Usually it's difficult to find a good brow pencil for everyone tends to be too warm. I've been using this years already.
Conditioner -TiGi - Bed Head Dumb Blonde Reconstructor

I hate the smell of this. Also in the shampoo the smell was horrible. It conditioned my hair well, was really thick and nice. I think this is quite okay regular conditioner for everyday use but it doesn't do wonders and there are better ones.
The smell is actually quite horrible. Remeinds me of pineapple. It really started to irritate me in the long run. The shampoo itself caused me dandruf so it was difficult to use it. Lasts long so it's not too expensive. I wouldn't buy again an if your scalp is sensitive this might not be for you.
I luckily only used a sample, because i suspect this made me brake out. My chin is full of small pimples, sixe of a blackheads. Otherwise it felt nice on my face, a little sticky after applying tho. Too high price. Why can't there be oil free serums! I can't recommed to acne prone skin or if you have really sensitive skin.
Moisturizers -Avalon Organics Botanicals - Vitamin C Rejuvenating Oil-Free Moisturizer

This felt good on my skin but the fragrance started to irritate me tho it first smelled really nice to me. Anyways the cream was nice and i didn't break out from it. It soaked in well too and my face felt moisturized. It didn't do anything special to my skin but on the other hand i din't expext anything. All in all quite okay cream.
I have always loved nearly all max factor's mascaras. And that is the case with this one also. The brush is huge and thick but it doesn't bother me. It separates and gives me great volume as well. I think it's however too overpriced. It's almost 17-18e in here and with that price i could buy almost some mascara from some selective cosmetic brand. I'm not going to pay that much from this. I bought mine from sale :D Maybe i'm too miserly haha. But i still love this!
I really like this mascara tho it's a bit overpriced in here(about 10e!). I bought it from sale and had actually been thinking of getting this one quite a while. I was a bit sceptical about the brush but i must admit my fear was superfluous. It made my lashes both long and voluminous. It separeted them also really well. I good buy this again. The packaging is also super cute.
i desired this for a long time because of all the praise it's got. And it is really nice blush. But there are dozens of peachy blushes like this one and they look as pretty than this. No one can tell if you are wearing this or some other peachy blush! I don't regret that i bought it tho, the pigmentation is good and i will use this, but i absolutely won't repurchase. I don't like the packaging cos all the dirt stick to its covers. The material is so "sticky". Also the mirror is needless.
In general this is really nice foundation. The only problems is if your skin is a bit dry from the top, then the foundation looks a bit nasty. I have oily/combination skin but tend to have sometimes dry nose etc. The point is it sticks to those dry areas and make them pop out more and that's not good. The coverage is good and it stays matt well. Also the shade is good. Still it somehow leaves me cold. I guess i expect a bit more moisturizing result and this is also a bit thick. But to those days you want really matt result and your skin is not dry i do recommed.
