This does such a great job of moisturising very dry hands, but it's pretty greasy so I'd only recommend using it at night. Won't repurchase as it just isn't worth £15.
Concealers -Boots - No7 - Instant Radiance Concealer

A great alternative to Touche Eclat when it comes to price, but this lasts 3 hours maximum on me, and I don't have oliy skin whatsoever. However, you get loads for your money so if you can try it out in the shop and find it wears well for you, this could be a HG. Not for me unfortunately so won't be repurchasing.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Green People Day Solution SPF15

This stuff is okay, and it's nice to find a natural SPF, but it doesn't moisturise all that much. I don't have incredibly dry skin but I have to use alot of this for my face to feel normal. Won't repurchase.
This doesn't cover blemishes, dark circles, ANYTHING... the formula is way too thick and cakey; it works slightly better when applied with your finger as opposed to a brush but definitely not a drastic improvement. Wouldn't repurchase if it was the only concealer in the store (Shocking, I know, but it's terrible!)
I can't fool myself any longer; this ruins my skin. I've been using it (and denying the truth!) for about 6 months and after an aspirin mask last night I've woken up with a face full of red, painful zits... it really can't be beaten on price, but unfortunately it makes my acne 10 times worse :(
After one night of use I broke out in a patch of whiteheads on my temple... the tub packaging isn't great either. This is really moisturising but don't go near it unless you never ever get a zit!
You get a huuuuuge bottle for your money, but I found this to be slightly drying even though it's for dry skin? It's a shame it has parabens in too; won't repurchase.
I've used Carmex for a couple of years and I've only just noticed that the longer I've used it, the drier my lips have gotten... you get alot for your money but I'm weaning myself off it - won't repurchase.
I've never actually bought a tube of this - I have about 4 which were GWP. There's some really cute colours, but they're SO sticky; when I apply it & smoosh my lips together I actually struggle to open them again! The staying power is pretty average too, so I won't be purchasing (especially now they're owned by L'Óreal).
I really love this stuff. I'm coming to the end of my first pot which, with once a day use, has taken me about 2 months. I use this as my morning cleanser. It's really helped to tone down the redness of my acne-prone skin and made it really soft. Definite repurchase.
I was so excited to try this, and it disappointed on every level... it clumps on first application, doesn't hold a curl whatsoever & if you get even the tiniest bit in your eye (pretty likely with a mascara, right?) it STINGS like nothing on earth. My mother bought this at the same time as me & gave me hers after a few weeks because she hated it too. Definitely will not repurchase.
My HG gloss! Perfect colour for my skintone & the little pot has lasted me years (literally). Absolutely adore it!
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Oil Cleansing Method OCM

I tried this 3 seperate times, each time for 3 months. I messed about with different oils, different ratios, different frequencies of oil cleansing & nothing worked. It totally destroyed my skin & I'm still trying to undo it 8 weeks later :(
Sinks in quickly & the little pot lasts ages, but does absolutely nothing for dark circles. Won't be rebuying after it runs out.
I was a Type 2 with the 3 Step system, and it totally destroyed my skin. My skin isn't fussy or sensitive, but it gave me breakouts like nothing I'd ever experienced and was crazy overpriced for the ingredients - alcohol in the Clarifying Lotion? Mineral oil in the DDML? You've got to be joking. Horrible ingredients, horrible products.
