So far the best eye cream I have come across. Virtually no scent, gorgeous gel- like consistency that glides on effortlessly on the delicate skin around the eyes. The feeling is luxurious, and a slight cooling and refreshing sensation can be felt. I noticed a marked improvement in brightness of the eye area, so a reduction in dark circles, and more radiant, even tone to the skin. I noticed I wear a lot less concealer now. This product is a new favourite
Hair Removal -Unlisted Brand - Veet Easy Wax Electrical Roll-on kit

I don't know if i can put into words how much I hate this product. Firstly, at almost $40 (Australian) the price is abusrd. Secondly, the wax consistency and general feel/ look is something I'd expect from a dirt cheap, low quality, imitation brand. It goes on a sickly, dirty pink/ peachy opaque colour reminiscent of bathroom tiles from the 70s, which stains your skin! Your legs get a disgusting pink hue, and any wax not picked up by the strip does not come off your skin no matter what you do. Now if only after all that you could at least justify the the cons by having smooth, perfectly waxed legs, but you can't. The wax barely grips the shorter hairs, and results are very patchy. You need to repeat over the same area multiple times, making the process long and you run out of the very few overpriced disposable paper strips that come with the pack. So, unless you are George of the jungle, or wait 2 years between waxes, this product will NOT deliver. Biggest waste of money ever. And very, very false advertising from Veet. Will never buy this again.
Probably worth two "lippies" but I gave it one considering the nerve Estee Lauder have slapping such a high price on this. The huge brush is clumsy, makes it difficult to coat smaller lashes in corners and you'll get mascara all over your eyelids with this. When removing this in the shower, I've never felt such pain and stinging in my life. It felt like battery acid got in my eyes, and I don't think I'm comfortable with having something that potent 2mm away from my eye balls. Lucky I only got a trial size tube as a free gift from a department store. Bad product!
Best mascara I ever tried. The tapered brush is exactly what I always wanted in a mascara wand, the formula is thin and smells like roses. Lashes are dry almost instantly, and don't feel heavy. The most impressive thing about this mascara is how buildable it is without clumping so it is absolutely ideal for a quick touch up before office drinks and it looks fresh and light as though you applied it for the first time. The important thing for me is that it leaves lashes soft and flexible and fan- like. I think people who give this mascara bad reviews like that cement lashes look that actually does nothing to enhance your lashes, only makes them brittle and prone to breaking/falling out when removing make up. Sure you might see a bit of flaking at the end of a long day, but I think people are forgetting this is a mascara- not a miracle. No make up product is going to look as fresh 16 hours after application as it did at the start, make peace with that. Great product, I've received numerous compliments since switching to this, don't be swayed by people's ridiculous expectations.
Makes an OK toilet air freshener.
Foundations -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

A staple in my make up bag. The cream is of a nice thick consistency, a little goes a long way and it blends really well. It smells fresh and citrusy like all Garnier products, and is really pleasant to put on. The coverage is just enough to even out skintone and not look like you're wearing something on your skin. It moisturises very well and has SPF which makes it great under make up for those that are put off by conventional greasy/ opaque white sunscreens on the face. I like to apply this product to freshly cleansed skin, with a bit of concealer under the eyes for a very natural and glowy look. It's a great way to "detox" from heavy foundations, and great for day time wear on weekends!
Hair Removal -Nair - Hair Removal-Face-Sensitive Formula

This does nothing for sensitive skin, it burns and leaves the upper lip red, sore and bumpy. The area around my mouth has rash-like red bumps where I never had problems. The whole time you have this product on, it stinks like burning hair - not good since it's right under your nose. The tube is annoying to use, dispenses too much product in one squeeze. Sometimes it doesn't do a good job removing all the hairs, so it's patchy but you have to remove it due to burning. I think it's less effective the longer you've had the tube. Poorly executed product. Won't repurchase.
Cleansers -Estee Lauder - Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser

NEVER AGAIN. My face feels like it's on fire after washing with this. I get red patches and skin feels inflamed, like I washed my face in acid. The wash is very drying and harsh, it stings when used around the eye area. I have small red bumps on my chin that developed since I started using this 4 days ago and my nose is very dry and flaky- something I NEVER had any issue with before in my life. Dissapointing.
I tried this product to even out uneven, patchy skin tone as a result of sun damage. Wasn't expecting much so I'm not too disappointed by the fact this product does nothing. I actually think it made me break out around my chin, I now have small red pimples across the lower part of my face, mainly across my chin. They are tiny red bumps- something I never had before and I am not someone who breaks out at all, I generally have quite clear skin. I'd like to add that this product does not moisturise at all and has a somewhat artificial smoothness about it, like a silicone primer. The gold sheen tricks you into thinking your skin tone is more even due to the dewy glow
