I have very dry skin and i absolutely love this. Its not a heavy cream, somewhere in the middle, feels silky and very moisturizing. The scent is really nice and sweet. Absorbs quickly leaving skin feeling smooth. Does not contain silicon or parabens although fragrance rank pretty high in the ingredient list. The only con is the price, super expensive.

For some reason, mine tend to get tiny bubbles on my mani, even though i have not shaken it for a long time. So i don't use it often.

omg... smells amazing (although does not last), makes my hair silky soft, in love. The only conditioner i love maybe as much as Lush american cream.

I really like this! It feels gentle but also effective scrub. Its not like a normal scrub because it does not contain fine grains or granules. I don't know how to describe it but it feels alittle like eraser streads??? very gentle yet works. Suspended in a gel with a fruity scent. Lovely experience using this, love it, non abrasive and feels fresh after. Comes in a tube, which is very cute too.
I didn't know i would actually like this. I actually think this works! I love using this at night, it keeps my skin hydrated and when i touch my skin the next morning, it feels moist and supple. I love it! It does feels alittle tacky but i don't mind at all because i have dry skin. The cream feels thick but not greasy, just feels a little tacky on the skin. I don't like that it contains fragrance. Any fragrance are irritating to the skin, period. The container also should be made of opaque material to keep it good longer. Being a jar is never good hygenically. The packaging does feel substantial and of a certain quality.
This is one of my favourite shadows. Doubles up as a highlighter ands gives a lovely sheen to my cheekbones. For me, it's just right, not overly shimmery nor too metallic. It's lovely on the eyelids and cheekbones. To me, mac's shadows tends to be more unique compared to other brands. Naked lunch may be just another champagne color but to me it's more than that. I think way more thought went into its design. I love the pink undertones that brightens up my skin, the subtle sheen looks natural and glowy at the same time.
Lovely cream blush, doesn't feel greasy, blends easily, no fragrance. I have this in the color haute, it's a natural looking pink, dries quickly to powdery finish. Lasts much longer than Mac's cremeblend blush. Comes with a mirror, but its pretty small though. Recommended!
I use this as a highlighter for my cheekbones. The pigmentation is rather sheer. But I love the fine shimmer with a peachy tint. As a blush, I would go for a matt finish or with a little bit of shimmer. This contains way too much shimmer for blush.
The most awful facial scrub i've come across. I bought this after "consulting" mua's review but i'm majorly disappointed. After just one use, i decided i'm going to dump it. It particles are too abrasive for face and i don't even like it as a body scrub. Its just too scratchy. The lotion the particles are suspended in feels nice though, feels like a lotion. Normally scrubs come in a mildly foaming/cleansing base. This just comes in a lotiony base.

I got this as part of a christmas set and it comes in a tube. The scent is ok, i don't particularly like their ginger scent. The salt dissolves after rubbing onto skin. The salt particles are medium size, but since it dissolves fairly quickly, i'd say its pretty gentle on skin. Does not feel greasy, but rather moisturizing. After rinsing it off, my skin feels soft and smooth. Not bad but i prefer a brand call Premiere sea salt body scrub. I would not repurchase this. In part because it feels too gentle, i don't feel it does enough for my skin. Good if you have sensitive skin though.
This has a lovely, fruity scent. I use it as a body scrub as its not abrasive enough as a foot scrub.
I got this because the reviews here are pretty good. I'm surprised that this product is just like water. And later i found out this is a water soluble vitamin C, instead of oil soluble, which absorbs better into skin (oops i did not check before purchasing). I did not have a problem with it being a water consistency. I hate the way the product is being dispensed... it comes in a super tiny tip, i have to squeeze the tube for 10 seconds before one drop is dispensed. Omg... for 5 drops i have to wait so long. This is ridiculous!!! I got so annoyed i cut the tip until it easily dispenses with a light squeeze. The most ridiculous and annoying packaging. Update: two months later, don't see any improvement on my freckles, even developed one for two new ones. Totally useless.
Apart from the scent, which may be the combined smell of all the ingredients, i love this. Its one of the most hydrating shower gel i've used. It also does not irritate my sensitive skin. The container is abit of a hassle to use, as it dispenses from the top and you'll have to pour it out. But i guess this will make the product cheaper which is fine by me.
This is a really dark red cream blush. I got it because i though it would give a healthy flush like benetint. I like it but i don't use it all the time. I normally use Something Special, a light peachy pink cream blush. But this is nice and i would use it. The texture of Mac's cream blushes are pretty creamy and thick, best applied using a short stippling brush like Real Technique's. With fingers i do find i need to blend quite abit. This is not as long lasting as i would like, actually not at all. I usually top it with powder blush but its gone by afternoon. I do touch up on blushes after lunch as most would be gone by then anyway.
I don't need another blush but the packaging sucks me in. Its so cute! This is a light peach blush, looks amazing on light to medium skintone. Its gives a natural, healthy look.
