This is the one product i would not be able to live without. I never use makeup, so i dont know how good it is for keeping makeup fresh and whatnot. Thankfully, ive got good skin and i use this alone. I moisturize my face and then put this on and nothing else, except when i have an off day and feel i need concealer on a few areas. That Gal first off has the most amazing smell, it literally smells like bubblegum, but its not so strong where its offputting and the smell doesnt last long either. The primer has a pinkish tint to it, and because im very fair, i was worried at fist, but once rubbed onto the skin that disappeared. The best thing about this primer is that it leaves my skin with an amazing glow. Whenever i have this on, i always get people asking me what makeup im using, and theyre always shocked when i say i dont wear any, just That Gal primer. It literally is that good. It doesnt leave skin oily, and it certainly doesnt clog my pores; ive actually found that since using it my skin is alot softer. It smoothens out the complexion most definitely, but i wouldnt say it completely covers pores. Thankfully, mine arent huge and visible so thats not a problem for me. Yes the primer is quite expensive, but then again BeneFit products always seem to be overpriced. With That Gal however, i feel its justified just because it gives my skin the most amazing finish. I literally do not leave my house without first putting this on. The one bad point about this is the packaging. I hate the fact that you cant see how much is left, so when your clicking away and find nothings coming out, its extremely irritating. However, ive been using it long enough to know that you should always have an extra one about as you never know when its going to finish; it definitely saves me from that mad dash to the shops. Needless to say, i absolutely adore this product and i cant live without it. Its texture and luminating finish are incredible. The best thing about most BeneFit products is that it enhances what youve already got instead of trying to dramatically change your appearance.
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Iconic High Definition Lash Curler Mascara

I absolutely adore this mascara!!! It is hands down one of the best ive ever used, and ive wasted plenty of money trying to find a good one. Ive got incredibly long lashes, and i had always found it quite problematic to get a mascara that didnt clump them altogether and leave marks on any and every area that my eyelashes seemed to touch, (my eyelashes really are that long). This mascara however, manages to perfectly curl my eyelashes so much so that i dont even have to use a curler. It doesnt melt and leaves marks all over my eyes either, which for my eyelashes is a major plus. With just one coat, your eyelashes look amazing for daytime, or anytime to be honest, but if you want a more dramatic finish than you can add more coats, and the best bit is that this doesnt clump at all!!! Its got a really good texture to it, and you can feel it when your putting it on. Needless to say, i never leave my house without it, and literally one coat of this leaves my lashes look amazing all day and night. The pricing is slightly expensive, but its definitely worth it considering how good an effect it has, and so i will definitely be repurchasing. For those who want a beautiful curl to their lashes, than this is the product for you. It also helps with volume and gets to every lash, giving you a lovely wide-eyed look.
Cleansers -BeneFit Cosmetics - B. Right Foamingly Clean Facial Wash

I have been using the BeneFit b.right products for quite a few months now and i have to say its one of the best that ive tried. It gives a very squeaky clean feel, which i love, and doesnt completely strip all the essential oils off your face. It also didnt give me that tight feel that many others cleansers have done. It may not have much of an impact in terms of preventing or clearing acne, but thankfully im not prone to major breakouts, and this hasnt given me any since using it. In addition, its a good makeup remover, but you may find it doesnt help much with removing mascara. The main reason i love this product is because of the fact that since using it, my complexion has become much brighter. Ive been using it alongside the BeneFit b.right facial polish, which is also very gentle on the skin and definitely gives a more luminous finish. The packaging is wonderful and looks amazing on my bathroom counter; its one of the things i love most about BeneFit products. Although, it is slightly pricey, i have yet to find another cleanser that does the same job as this one, so i will repurchase this when it finishes. Having said that, my current bottle has lasted me ages and im still not close to finishing it, which is definitely a plus. Overall, i wouldnt say that it would help with problematic skin, but if your looking for something that cleanses the skin and gives you radiant finish, then this is it.
