This product is terrible if you use it by itself. I did this the first time i used the product and my skin was a grease ball! HOWEVER...lather on , massage, wipe off with cotton pad THEN RINSE and skin is amaxing soft and smooth...UNBELIEVEABLE difference...i was using this stuff on my body just to use it up...so silly as i love it now!

Not really impressed with this, especially as it being Chanel, i expected more..I have combination skin, fairly normal most days...This did little to my skin condition..i expect a illuminator to brighten , this basically moisterised my skin...
I got this today and its so eerk! Its dries my lashes out making them hard and spiky, i really dont think it does much...I need about 3 coats...a big dissapointment, my last mascara was YSL faux cils...this is nothing compared to that! It was $47 AU which is same as Faux Cils too! Im going to take it back and swap for Hypnose which isnt as dry:(

I love this bronzer! I just finished my Laura Mercier powder bronzer, and thought id try something different..This is soooo MUCH BETTER! It has a pearly pink sun in the middle, which has this pearly effect on my skin...it makes my skin feel like satin! Im in love with this bronzer, and am now tempted to see what other goodies Elizabeth Arden offers...

The best thing about this mascara is what it looks like on the OUTSIDE..the wand itself is terrible (thing, small bristles, no shape) The effect it HAS on my lashes is not great either (straight lashes, no length, thin) I would not go near this mascara ever again!
Skincare - Body -Burt's Bees - Burt's Bees Baby skin creme

I disliked this creme very much..It is so thick and takes ages to absorb into your skin (you have to rub it in for ages) The after effect was a big greasy mess...I will be using my small tin full on my feet...would never put this anywhere near my face! The tin was cute, thats about the only thing i liked about this product
I looooove this stuff! I just recieved some in a swap and this oil is just soo divine! I love the scent, clean and comforting! I use this as SOON as i jump out of the shower, while im still wet i rub some into my palms (til it goes kind of creamy) and rub it on my body...it soaks in straight away, and unlike lotion, you dont have to stand there rubbing it in...my skin looks gorgeous afterwards:)
Im not sure if this is the same product that they have in the USA..but the Australian product is called "essential nutrients, creamy foaming cleanser"... This is the best cleanser i have tried in a LONG time..Lovely fresh clean scent, and feel very moisturising even when applying..Rinses of eye makeup without getting it all over your face, and the after affect....soft, clean skin! My face has recently been RIDDLED with small pimple like bumps , and blotchiness..this cleanser seems to have worked a miracle...i have purchased 3 bottles of this stuff cause it was on sale...! (a bargain at $8.00 AU for 200ml!)

Nice textured product, you seem to need a lot of it though to spread over your face, as it absorbs really quick, gives skin a peachy feel and look..it think it would be great for thos with comb skin...or normal-oily skin...(not dry)
Skincare - Face -Garnier - Synergie Pure Sebum Control Moisturizer

Nice packaging, i kinda like the fresh melon scent..Have been using product for 3 weeks, and i cant rave about it. I have fine pimples and a few pms-caused cysts , but this didnt really hinder nor help the condition..I will probably keep using whats left, but not re-purchase. Good, if you want a basic moisturiser thats oil-free...dont expect a miracle though
