My oh MY. Dirty underwear, foul body odour and the bed sheets in a hooker's boudoir. Any takers? I think not.

Didn't want to love it. Now can't live without it. Super smooth, not heavy in appearence, goes a long way, no shine. What more can I say?!
Many thanks to those who reviewed this before and led me in the right direction. Not too bad a price, great pump packaging and fantastic cleansing action. Never thought an oil would rinse away leaving skin feeling really clean and not greasy but it does - and melts all traces of make up away. HG for evening cleansing

Just the right amount of gentle 'scrub' for everyday use. Nice smell and leaves skin fresh but not dry. A winner.
Easy to apply with fine tip applicator, long lasting, no smudges - but best of all is the color. A dark shiny green. Much prettier that matte would be - and so cheap.
Marketed as a men's product but don't let that stop you. It took me 10 years to track this down - first came across it when worn by my husband's friend. Didn't get the name at the time but after much bottle sniffing finally found it. Wonderful! Warm spicy undertones with geranium and rose otto on top - like the most delicious turkish delight you ever tasted. Pity it's soooo expensive and hard to find.

Got thje free sample from Gloss. com and very impressed. Nice length, good volume good staying power.
The formula that offers extra length - and it does just that. Went on very smoothly - no clumps. Length is great but not much volume if that's what you're after. No smudging, lasts well and a good price.
The newest addition to the foundation range. Water based, oil free. Very light , goes on very evenly and smoothly. Coverage is fairly light but apparently the concept is that you can layer it up to the coverage you want. A bit pricey, but last very well with no shines.
Nothing betteer for removing mascara - even waterproof. And that's after a 20 year long love affair with it!
Not made by 2Grrls. But couldn't find Corn Silk anywhere. Find it in the Odds and sods section for one-off products in most pharmacies. Comes in Matte/Shimmer/ Translucent/ Colorless or tinted. Fantastic. I've used it for years - I think it may have appeared in England first so I made friends with it a long time ago. Have tried many others but always come back. Translucent/ Colorless is a great, invisible day long wonder that keeps make up and shine in order.

Can't quite work out what to do with it. SA said pat on over foundation - no go. Tried putting on under - no go with liquid foundations but worked OK under Stila Illuminating Creme/powder foundation. Also am I the only one who has to fight it to get the lid off and then again to get it to stay on!
