Got free bottles of both shampoo & conditioner to trial. My hair has become horrid. Would not recommend.
Was given this to trial. My hair has never been so dry & tangled :( Had to start using a leave in treatment daily to counteract it.
Loved! Purchased this before my wedding to get my hair in top shape. Loved the results. Wish I could afford to continue using it.

This mascara was part of a package sold to me in a shopping mall. It would have to be the worst mascara I've ever had. It has a white lash primer on one end, and the black mascara on the other. My lashes actually looked thinner after applying this - I didn't think it was possible!
I'm somewhat fussy with my foundation, and this one met all my expectations. Great medium coverage, not too powdery or cakey, doesn't smell or irritate my eyes. My eyes also hate concealer usually, as it dries out the skin underneath them, but this one I can actually use. Would recommend.
I decided to treat myself to some Visionnaire because I'm getting married in 9 months and needed something to help my skin which seemed more dull and prone to break-outs lately (I'm 33!). On an impulse I purchased the Visionnaire 4 days ago and am already seeing results! My skin felt so much smoother from day two, and on day four I think my skin is more radiant. Can't wait to see what it's going to be like in 9 months!
Love this mascara -- have converted from Diorshow and YSL Faux Cils. Easy to apply and gives me volume and curl without clumping. I have to admit the tube does dry out more quickly than cheaper brands, but I'm after quality, not quantity ;)

I have thin lashes & a slight obsession with finding a thickening mascara. Despite not being the most thickening mascara, I do like Inimitable for a few reasons -- it curls, and it doesn't flake during the day.

I was recommended this product over my Chanel Inimitable because of it's curling effect. Unfortunately I don't think it's much better. I have to admit that it makes my usually thin lashes look very thick and would probably repurchase if it wasn't so expensive.
After wasting money on higher end brands I stumbled across this primer whilst on holiday in the US (I'm from Australia). It's a lot smoother than other primers, and doesn't leave my skin feeling oily like a lot of silicone-based products do. I was excited to find a store stocking this in Aus :)

After the skin under my eyes was damaged by another eye cream I tried dozens of creams to try to reverse the damage... this was the only one that didn't exacerbate the situation... and actually improved it. I'd definitely recommend it for anyone with sensitive eyes. I find it very moisturising after so many bad experiences with other eye creams.

My nails were looking somewhat battered, so I tried this product because the sales lady said it was popular, and because it was "for soft peeling nails." My nails have never peeled so much as they have since using this product!! Perhaps they meant that it was to make your nails go soft and peel?? I won't be rushing back to the store for the rest of the Nail Teins Plus range :-\

After suffering damage from another eye cream I purchased this one to moisturise my delicate under eye area. Unfortunately it hurts to apply. I don't usually have sensitive skin, but this stings. It smells quite nice though.

I tested this moisturiser only once and was convinced by the sale assistant that this would be good for my currently dehydrated skin. After using it for a week I noticed that my skin was tougher than it used to be -- not as soft. My cheeks started to feel like I had eczema, so I had to discontinue use.
Great colour isn't too over-the-top or bright, gloss stays on for a long time, although I can't see the plumping effect. It doesn't have a taste, which is disappointing, but I'd still re-purchase.
