Moisturizers -Garnier - Garnier Pure moisturiser (oil control)

First off this product is NOT for skin prone to irritation or dryness, I know it said it was mattifying so that should’ve given me a big clue not to buy it, but Im a sucker for ‘different’ ingredients, in this case the ‘’salicylic acid’ and ‘Zinc/Clay’. Plus, there was not high alcohol content so I thought what the heck. As soon as I put this stuff on my face my skin was burning really badly (and my skin isn’t even THAT sensitive). Then after a week of near 1st degree facial burns, I felt an awful feeling, that is ‘buyers remorse’, yet again, the moisturizer I bought, sucked the big one. On a more positive note, this stuff is great for oily skin (not combination…OILY), my sister uses it now and says it totally stays matte on her oily skin with no reported stinging or burning. For people with skin like mine I would say use the Garnier ‘Soft’ moisturizer, it is dirt cheap and ive only been using it for a week but it seems pretty good. If that doesn’t entice you, it has rose extract which we all know in 2005, is THE natural ingredient in skincare.

I was sucked into buying this because of all the 'nutrients' & 'vitamins' it contained (especially green tea!)But after using it it looked like I got a huge sqaure of butter and rubbed it all over my face. Im sorry for being dramatic but i can't stand a greasy moisturiser especially for a night cream. And i have dry skin so this stuff must be really greasy.Im probably better off using my Nivea Day Cream with SPF 15 at night than this one lol.
Cleansers -L'Oreal - Purezone skin clearing gel cleanser

Like most women (especially one's with problem skin) I am still on the quest to find my H.G cleanser although this one out of the myriad of products i have tried is quite impressive. At the moment im going through a tough time with my skin being 19 and all, so i wanted something quite gentle because i can get dry/sensitive skin but then i needed something stronger to help minimise those awful horomonal pimples around the jawline. So, I was torn when I spotted this at the grocery store...salicylic acid and sebo-calmyl? My first thought was omg no way, this will totally dry out my skin. BUT after 2 weeks of using this stuff my face feels and looks so much better and my chin is looking totally 'pure' (excuse the pun). I encourage people with combo skin, prone to 'blind pimples' to try this but instead of buying the pure zone astringent too (2 many harsh products) i purchased the Lóreal 'Re-Nourish velvety toner' (Thats what its called in Australia not sure if the name is diff. elsewhere). Its really soft and totally replaces the moisture loss from the cleanser. Overall, a great cleanser for a great price.
This eyeliner promised so much but didn't even stay on the inner rim of my eyes for an hour. This is a big problem for me because my eyes are almond shaped, and eyeliner on the inner rims tend to accentuate that shape more so than when I apply it only on the upper eyelids. Although, I've found use for it as a replacement for a darker eyeshadow but I dont recommend this for highlighting the inner rims of your eyes. If you're after a cheaper brand that stays on all day give LÓreal's Le Grand Kohl eyeliner a go, it's my new H.G.
