Eye Makeup Remover -Estee Lauder - Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

The bottle says 'Gentle Eye Makeup Remover' and it is true that it is GENTLE. It did not sting my eyes one single time during the times I've used it. I'm finished with the bottle now and will not purchase again. It's expensive, but not worth the price. The _problem_ is that it does NOT get rid off _all_ eye makeup, so when I wake up in the morning I have to use this product TWICE more. Have used more efficient products before.
Flower scent, reminds me of old perfume (or soap) that my grandmother would use. It smells like an old scented drawer. I am 27 and don't want to smell like I'm 72. The bottle is elegant, but not classic enough to look nice in the bathroom. The flower makes it look cheap. Also since it's a tall bottle it won't take (me) long before I knock it over and break it.
I loved this when I bought it. It's a mature and sophisticated perfume, heavy enough for a night out, but can also be worn during the summer. It's a bit different, it reminds me of a blend between Gaultier and Britney Spears (the pink bottle). Lately it's been giving me a headache and I am ready to go back to my Chloe classic which gives an equally full smell, but still feels lighter.

The rich cream moisturizes my Nordic winter skin well during the winter months (right away) and does not make me break out. Will re-purchase!
Liquid -Max Factor - Xperience Weightless Foundation

My first impression is that this is a very good 'cheap' foundation. I've never been a fan of Max Factor foundations because it's rarely lightweight, but this one actually is. It feels good to apply it on my face and it blends in perfectly (shade 55, maybe a bit too dark). Did not break me out more than expected (when trying a new product). I only had samples, but I might buy the full size as the coverage was very good. Only con was that it dried me out a bit on my cheeks.

This is a cheaper alternative, but it takes a while for it (two swipes) to get the job done. I don't like the package either as you have to twist the lid, I'd rather it stay on at all times. No tears or icky feeling after using it, but I don't like that my eyelids look 'sweaty' after using it. And I still have mascara on my pillow when I wake up the next day. Still better than alternatives from non-cosmetic lines. I'd buy this again if I didn't have the money to buy anything better.
BB Cream -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Light/Medium

Not for sensitive skin! I did not see any miracles. It's basically like blending a light-cover foundation and skin cream on your face. Not good coverage, doesn't blend in well enough to look natural, and the next day I woke up with zits (I'm sure this could be because it takes some time for the skin to get used to new products, but the product was not great).
1. It removes eye make up if you swipe it enough times, but I have to use two cotton pad sides for one eye. Because the lotion is so runny I also have to work it around the eye to not get the stuff in my eye (which irritates). Mascara still sheds after removal with the remover. Would not purchase again because I find Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up Remover to be a lot better and leave eye cleaner, softer and with a better smell.

Does not burn my eyes at all like one of the reviewer said. It removes all visible eye makeup in one (or two tops) swipe and is really gentle on the eye so I can literally just swipe over the entire eye. Eyes feel no different after using, but look clean. Packaging is good. Only thing I wish is that it would remove more mascara, because I still shed mascara after I have used this product. I would purchase again.
Gorgeous mature color that lasts entire night when applied with the top coat. the transparent coat is also nice alone. Best lipstick + color!
Lotions/ Creams -Crabtree & Evelyn - Gardeners Hand Therapy

I don't get it either. It's as good as any other average hand lotion, but I have to re-apply a lot of times during the day and even then my hands don't feel soft. The price is OK, but the lid annoyed me to the point that on the 3rd day I just got rid of it. If the lotion dries out I'll live. The smell is horrible, but I guess you'll either love it or hate it. It's just not for me. I think my Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour hand treatment is better than Crabtree & Evelyn, but next time I'll try Au Lait Hand Cream because that at least smells heavenly.
I wear this perfume in the nighttime as I don't feel it's suited for the daytime. It's heavy and a bit mystique. I like the different scent, but I prefer Midnight Poison because it's fresher and more versatile. I found myself getting tired of Hyponotic Poison very early, and switched to a different more type of classic winter smell by JPG.
I love the scent. It's a different kind of fragrance. I wear it day or night, whenever I want to be noticed. It's more wereable than Hypnotic Poison and more fresh. My bottle somehow just cracked, so had to only give 4* package. Will definitely re-purchase!
I love the scent, otherwise I wouldn't have purchased it obviously. It's a bit heavier scent, but not a winter fragrance. The reason I will not purchase this again (and why I've stopped wearing it) is that I have to re-apply it several times during the day because the scent only lasts for an hour at a time.
I love this product and I use it for many reasons, and have done so the past three years. I spray it during the day to refresh my face, and during the summer to calm it. Sometimes I have a wish to quickly dry out some areas of skin due to breakouts, and then this product works wonderfully after I've used my other alcoholic products (Exuviance) and makes sure my skin does not stay irritated. I've also used this to soothe my skin from sunburn etc. and I can definitely feel some relief! Packaging is good, and product long-lasting.
