BB Cream -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Light/Medium

This is a lovely, very lightweight tinted moisturiser that gives me a dewy finish. It is NOT for oily skin- it is lovely for normal/dry skin. It does NOT have good coverage- it's not a foundation. I also find that it sinks in after a while like any tinted moisturiser. If you want something that gives a nice, pretty glow, and you are NOT trying to cover acne or major redness, then this is a great option for when you don't want to wear foundation. I like to wear it with a little bit of creme blush on days when I don't need to wear 'makeup'. It is NOTHING like my 'real' Korean BB cream, which is why I refer to it more as a tinted moisturiser. I will purchase again.

Love this, alone or in combo with the foundation. It doesn't 'correct' the way some other primers do, but it gives a stunning, pearly glow to my complexion. I love it!
Love, love love the dewy finish of this foundation. I have to be very careful with blending aound my hairline, I find that patting my skin helps the foundation to blend. Will definately be buying again.
Moisturizers -Neostrata - Ultra-Smoothing Cream (10% Glycolic Acid)

I've been using this on and off for 15 years. Sometimes I run out and don't re-purchase for a while, when I do get some more, I am always shocked at the overnight improvement of my skin! It makes it so smooth! Now that I'm in my 30s and starting to get some fine lines, I will never lapse again- I'll be using this wonderful product for a long time to come!
This night cream, along with the spf30 day cream, are my HG products! The night cream is very thick, but I like that because I need good moisturisation. I even use it as an eye cream- it's completely non-irritating. When I wake up in the morning, my skin feel moist, dewy and soft. I'm on my third pot, and will be repurchasing again and again!
Moisturizers -L'Oreal - Dermo Expertise RevitaLift

I'm reviewing the Dermo-Expertise Revitalift day cream, which is available in Australia. To begin with, the cream comes in a pump which has given me trouble from day one. It gets jammed every time you pump it, needing to be pulled up every time. It takes several pumps to get anything out, which is very frustrating. As for the cream, it goes on alright, although a bit thick for a day cream. What I hate the most about it is that it comes off in little rolls every time you touch your skin throughout the day. It seems to sit on top of my skin, never sinking in, making it impossible to wear under makeup. I thought I might save it just for days when I;m not wearing foundation, but have finally decided that I can't cope with the way it 'pills', or comes off in little rolls and balls, even at the end of the day. The rest of this product is going in the bin- total waste of money!
