This is an amazing light moisturizer/toner. Makes my skin feel so smooth and hydrated. More moisture than the rose water. Love both products!! Comes in amber jar. I buy all my mother nature products off eBay

This is an amazing product, makes my skin feel so so soft. The bottle is not great so I put it in a spray bottle. Love this.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

I love everything about this product. At first I didn't like it at all but I think that's because I tried it in wi ter and it's not great for dry skin. This has so many shades to choose from. I am number 120. It fit me perfectly. This foundation builds rea Ly well and never looks caked on. In the daytime I only wear just under 1 pump on my whole face and it's perfect. I also love the Nara sheer glow and the Giorgio Armani luminous silk but both these have bad bad staying power in summer. This foundation stays on all day. The finished product is very skin like andhotographa really well.
This is an amazing cleanser, I use this as a makeup remover. it removes everything so quickly and leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth. It's perfection in a bottle. Update: made me break out after awhile. Even though I use this as a remover then use my normal Paula's choice cleanser, still leaves a residue. So now going to try Clinique removing balm.
Shampoo -L'Oreal - Professionnel Absolut Repair conditioner

I've used this conditioner for years now. I do love this especially in summer, makes my hair feel nice and lightly conditioned which is what I want in summer. In winter I do need a thicker, richer conditioner so i use the Redken Smooth Down but this is perfect for summer. It's a protein treatment conditioner so I use it on and off. Tried the shampoo, does not clean my hair at all, leaves behind residue...not good.
Moisturizers -Paula's Choice - RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator

This is perfect! I don't use this all the time but i do tend to break out once a month and my skin becomes so so oily at this time as well. I use this for about a week every month. This had made a HUGE difference in my skin at this time, my skin is not oily at all, it reduces my breakouts and if I do get any it clears them up straight away. This is perfect as well for people who can't use Benzoyl peroxide. If I use benzoyl peroxide for more than one night my skin gets so so red and irritated from that but this is PERFECT! Another excellent product from Paula!
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Illuminating

I love this tinted moisturizer. I don't wear this by itself but I do love mixing it with other foundations when I want some SPF. I mix it with my Laura Mercier silk creme when I want only a little bit of coverage, it gives me an amazing glow to my skin. It makes my skin look 'glowy' and luminous without looking like I;m out to a disco. It just makes you look healthy and the SPF20 is just an added bonus, another Laura mercier product I love and that doesn't break me out :) Love this
Sunscreen -Peter Thomas Roth - Instant Mineral SPF 30

I really really love this powder, it works really well as a mattifyer and offers some coverage. I hate the packaging though. I recommend buying a powder dispenser and putting it in that. Be careful when pulling off the end of the brush it can get messy so be careful. The brush is not good at all. Great powder product and the SPF 30 is a bonus for the Aussie hot summers. Great product!
I didn't really know what to expect form this product. I tend to put this on over a toner with my hands. I pat it on my face. It sinks into my skin really quickly. It makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. When I wash my face the next day my skin look clear, feels smooth and just looks 'fresher'. This is definitely a keeper for me. It is expensive but you can buy tester sizes online, so maybe try that first. This is a perfect product for me. Highly recommend it!
I love love this shampoo. I have thick, straight, long, non dyed hair. My hair is so long that my scalp tends to get oily but the ends of my hair tend to dry out. After using this my hair feels so nourished and clean. I don't know if I will re-purchase this as after using it a couple of times in a row my hair is getting tangled and has alot of build-up? So I use this more as a 'treatment' shampoo'. This just feels like it repaired my hair. I might repurchase if I haven't found the perfect shampoo yet.
I really wanted to like this, but after about 4 days it clogged my pores and made me breakout :(. I got this foundation in the 5 and the 6 and mixed them together to create my perfect shade. This foundation goes on nicely and sets to sheer, luminous look, you can build up the coverage but I think it might be too sheer for someone who wants medium coverage. The foundation makes you look sunkissed and makes your skin look so luminous and lovely. I REALLY hoped I would not break out from this....but I did. So on my swaplist. So annoyed this did not work for me. I LOVE laura Mercier silk creme but I want something a little lighter in a liquid form for summer.....so still searching.
I do like this shampoo. A little goes a long way, it foams up so well. The smell is nice and is not over powering. Sadly I can;t use this every wash otherwise my hair gets so dry and brittle. So i prefer to use it as a 'treatment' shampoo instead. I have seen some improvement in my hair strength.
This is another really lovely conditioner from Redken. This provides a light moisture which is perfect for when the weather is slightly hotter and I don't want my hair to be weighed down.This conditioner isn't as nice on my hair as the Smooth Down conditioner.
This shampoo is really too moisturizing for me. I can use this every now and then but I could never use it twice in a row as one time is enough for a build up for product in my hair. I won't buy this again. It's too rich for my hair.
