Didn't do much for me and slightly dried out my hair.
This stuff smudges, is an excuse for waterproof mascara but still is a nightmare to remove.
I used to use Clarins but this cheap tinted moisturizer beats it by FAR! It gives a absoultely natural, fresh finish. I put this on and a friend asked me if I had just done a mask on my face, because it made my skin look so good! Downside is that it's definately not for oily skins but perfect for normal (me) or dry. It hasn't irritated my skin so far considering I'm on a low dose of Roaccutane. Also, I'm disappointed in the colour selection-only 2 beige or honey. Honey was way too dark for my fair skin and beige gives me a glowy tan, I would have prefered a lighter one though. I'll update if anything goes wrong. But seriously I've been looking all over for a perfect tinted moisturizer and I think I have found it.
Perfect colour, wonderful staying power, buildable coverage HOWEVER the menthol is ABSOLUTELY irritating. It burns my skin and makes it red for a while. A big NO NO!!! Not to mention the salicylic in this should not be contained in foundations-leave that for skin care! HUMPH!
I did not find anything wonderful about this product. It leaves my hair thirsting for moisture. And it becomes a nightmare to comb. Definately will not repurchase!
This is the only facewash I can use on Roaccutane. It is so gentle; it doesn't strip my face. I recommend rinsing this off rather than wiping off with cotton wool (it is more gentle and effective this way). I love this wash, it leaves my complexion even and beautiful. Thumbs up for Cetaphil. I have never tried to remove makeup with this before but apparently it doesn't remove it too well. So as suggested by my derm I will try the bar for removing makeup instead. In my opinion, my skin has never looked this good as it is using Cetaphil!

I purchased this foundation in ~Golden Beige~ colour which is a !perfect! match for my skin. It covers so well that I don't need concealer (except for dark circles) and gives a natural not heavy or made-up look. It is a semi-matte finish. But as with all foundations I use, they break me out. Seems like something I'll never escape so I won't blame them by taking off a lippie. It is the best foundation I have found out of all I have tried. I'm so glad I found it. EDIT-ok i officially hate this product now. I had combo skin and after 1-2 hours my skin looks like an oil slick! I think my skin has turned oily now so the foundation is even worse now. It's definately not for oily/acne prone skin. But still the colours are good and it looks natural. But other than that, I'm not impressed.
I luuurv the smell of this product, i wanna eat it! It makes my skin feel so clean and fresh. Definatley helps with breakouts and isn't drying for me. But I don't use it to remove makeup and I wouldn't recommend doing that. The mask is also amazing. I had to get this product from a friend in England 'cause we don't get it here but they better start getting it here 'cause it's the BOMB! Ok Update: This stuff was great until I noticed how red my face got after using the cleanser. I think I'm just gonna reduce the frequency of use but I'm still gonna use the mask.I also had a major breakout lately while using this stuff but let's hope it isn't the culprit.

I love this product! The packaging is perfect. Before this I was using Clean & Clear sensitive skin facewash recommended by Paula and that was alright UNTIL I found this on MUA. My skin looks much better-clearer and more radiant! I know it's hard to believe that only a cleanser can do this but compared to what my skin looked like before, I must say there is a noticable difference. Plus, it cleans my skin better, blackheads are slightly less visible on my nose than with any other cleansers I've tried. The only downside is that the fragrance is a bit overbearing.
I love the tea tree, peppermint smell! It leaves my hair smelling fresh and clean. It helps with my oily roots and so far hasn't dried out my brittle ends. Lovely product but I'm still searching for my HG.
I hated this product. I have fine blonde hair and it made my hair dark after a month my hair looked brown. Never again!
Flaws were not noticable due to the light reflecting, illuminating effect of the foundation. I loved the natural dewy look of the foundation, however if too much is applied it tends to give a fake oily look. All in all, a minimal amount of it applied to the face gives a beautiful natural glow and the yellow undertone also takes away from any redness on the face. My only concern is that I have combination skin and it did give me a few small pimples due to the oilyness of the product. I would rather recommend this for dry skins.
