I bought this mascara based on a good reviews and when I used it for the first time I thought it's a good mascara. Unpleasant surprise came by the end of a day when I tried to remove it. This thing is as stubborn as a waterproof mascara. I actually went back to the store the next day to ask if this is a waterproof mascara cos it doesn't say so on the tube. Well, it's not. But I'm struggling to remove it even with waterproof make-up removal. If anyone has any tips on how to remove this without pulling out all my eyelashes, please, enlighten me.
I am quite disappointed with this mascara. I'm sure it gives amazing results for someone with naturally long and curled lashes, but for me it hasn't done much. I have quite short and totally straight lashes and must say i get better results with Max Faxtor 2000 calorie. When i started using this mascara it was too wet to give anything good to my lashes, after some time it dried up a bit and then it became better, but still, not good enough. It has absolutely gorgeous packaging, i must admit that and if nothing else, it looks very pretty in my make up corner :) It also smells nice, but i'm not sure if that's ok for sensitive eyes as this surely means it contains perfume. For those who have naturally long lashes and don't mind spending a lot of money on mascara, i'd say go for it cos if you like it, it is worth the money. I have mine for over 4 months now and it doesn't look dried up at all.

I just LOVE this moisturiser! I have combination skin that actually needs a lot of moisture and if it doesn't, it gets really oily. It also gets very oily if product i apply is too heavy and so on. It's kinda hard for me to find a good face cream that's very moisturising, but not greasy and heavy. I used to wake up with face so oily like someone has spilled oil all over my face while i was sleeping. But now i apply this cream (very generously) before sleeping and my skin is soft and not even a bit oily in the morning. I'd like it if they'd make it in a pump bottle or tube as pots are not very hygienic, but i can live with this for now.
I started using this product one month ago and i could spot the results pretty quickly. I didn't expect any miracles to happen and it really didn't make my eye lashes any longer, at lest i haven't noticed that, neither did anyone else. BUT this is a very good product! My lashes are much nicer, healthier looking and they don't fall out as much as they used to. I really had a big problem with my lashes falling out every time i washed my face (not even removing mascara!). My lashes were brittle and now they are not, that's a pretty good result to me. Mascara goes on much nicer as well. If you expect from a product to visibly lengthen your lashes, then i must say, rather invest in some other more expensive products. But if you only want nicer, healthier lashes, then this one is more than ok for you. I payed 15€ for it and it says on the bottle it's good for 9 months after opening. So i have 8 more months of use in this one and it doesn't even look like there is any missing. The only thing i don't like is the brush that's very mascara like looking brush, but it doesn't hold enough product to apply, so i have to struggle a little to really cover all my lashes.
I normally don't use lip glosses cos i hate that sticky feeling on my lips, but i got this one as a gift and all i can say is WOW!!! It's not sticky at all and although the colour seems too strong for me (i rarely use coloured lip balms), it's not noticeable on my lips. My lips are naturally red and it gives them really nice shine, while making them feel soft as i was using really nurtrishing lip balm. It also lasts very long, so i don't have to reapply it too often.
