Where has this been all my life? I bought a few sample sachets of this, I bought 7 thinking a sachet a day would be right. WRONG. That's too much, it will never absorb. Everyone having trouble with the stickiness is using too much!!!! Anyway, when using this I have had friends comment on how clear my skin looks, how nice my skin looks etc. and I have had spots since I was 12/13 (I'm 25 now). Just bought my first full tube. I look forward to having awesome skin from now on! Yay!
I bought this when it was on offer at Boots. I don't hate it but I don't love it either. I like that it has spf, and that it isn't too foundationy when I don't want a day of full make up but... - It makes me pretty shiny so I have to put powder on, which I HATE! - Once the powder is on (and I really try to use the bare minimum) I look older, duller, not so great. - I still have to use a fair old bit of concealer on my spots when I use this. - It says it doesn't rub off as easily as traditional cosmetics? I fell asleep on my boyfriends shoulder and it rubbed off onto his coat! I have never had that before! So, no. I doubt I will buy this again.

For me this was a meh. I haven't noticed much difference at all and I have been using it morning and night. Maybe I just don't need it or something. I have finished a tube now and I will see what I look like now I am NOT using it before I make up my mind as to whether it made a difference enough to buy again. Price is OK. Packaging, pretty good.
Got this for Christmas in Raspberry Wine. So far so good. No chips, only problem is on one finger my technique was off and I got it on the skin a bit and now I could peel it off if I wanted. I will be more careful next time! A 4 for overall as I would like to see a greater range of colours (blacks and glitters!!).
Yes, could this be my HG??? I wish I had used this sooner. My skin has recently been insanely oily, I mean it's always oily but it was like, insane. Fresh pharmacy put the kibosh on that. I was using herbalism before this and while it's oil stopping powers were ok they weren't amazing and it was starting to feel scratchy on my face, now I'm using Fresh Pharmacy + Vanishing Cream and I don't even need to use face powder. It did feel a little drying at first but I am used to it now, it's no problem since I started on vanishing cream which seems to be a prefect match. Cons = The usual crappy Lush packaging. I cut the bar up into chunks and kept them in a container so they don't get all soggy and washed away. I keep a small piece in a soap dish.
Got this as a sample and I am planning on buying the full size sometime this week. I have oily skin and I am breaking out a lot at the moment, I got a sample of this and Enzymion (also reviewed). Washing my face can leave it feeling a little dry and this moisturiser seems to get the balance between moisturising and keeping the oil away. Price is OK, packaging awful as per usual with Lush. ETA: Bought full size, moooooore than happy. No dryness, no oiliness. Skins clearing up lovely. I did spill about £5 worth into my sink when I opened it the first time though... Come on Lush, surely eco-friendly can mean user friendly?
I got this as a sample from Lush, it's ok. I think maybe I will try it again in the Summer. Although I have oily skin the face wash I am using makes it feel a little dry so I need to get the balance between cleanser and moisturiser just right, this just felt a little too light I am afraid.

I have lips from hell. Pretty much always dry or cracking (to the point of scabs or bleeding), previously the only thing that sorted them out was the creamy blistex stuff in a tube but I have been struggling to find it. Anyway, I found this in Holland and Barrett instead, i was looking for a balm without menthol etc. as that always seems to irritate and this has none of those things. My lips aren't cured but they are better, the taste of this balm isn't overpowering or sickly like some lipbalms and I think the price is pretty good too. Will probably buy this again as it is stocked in plenty of places.
