I must admit that I'm surprised by the bad reviews. As some one who's lazy for removing the whole make-up traces at the and of the day with rosacea prone-dry skin,
I adore and adore this one! The only drawback ist hat the bottle does not have a pump (what a mistake!) It's so messy to apply it. t'm currently usinn the Fidgi shede and it's almost unremarkable and that's what I expected for my dry and rosacea prone skin.
Eye Makeup Remover -Estee Lauder - Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

The worst make-up remover ever! I had silk eyelash extension and had to use an oil-free remover, for this reason I bought it. What a mistake! It did not remove eyeshadow and I wasn't even using mascara.
What a crap for such a price! It doesn't even remove the tinted moisturiser and I have to apply it for the second time. Guess what, the tinted moisturiser is still there! It also make my sensitive/dry cheecks red. I'll go on buying Sephore's Supreme Cleansing oil, which is almost 1/3 cheaper, effective and not that harsh.
I do own La Fascinante(No:38) which suits my skin tone. It's long-lasting and surprisingly not drying. Perfect choice for autumn and winter as it's name already suggests: "velvet".

Glad that I bought it... It already replaced my beloved tinted moisturiser, namely the one of Shiseido. It's more liquid and easier to apply. Highly recommended for rosacea prone, dry skins.
Conditioner -Organix - Brazilian Keratin Therapy Conditioner

This does not deserve the name "conditioner". It makes the hair more dry and brittle.
Sunscreen -Shiseido - ultra sun protection lotion spf 50

Absolutely no! Although claimed to be waterproof, it left my skin with lots of freckles and redness during my six days vacation inspite of generous use. I also used it during my pregnancy, but due to melasma I couldn't assess this product. Now, I can...
Cleansers -Yes To Carrots - Yes To Cucumbers Face Cleanser Towelettes

With one word:useless. It does not clean the face without make-up at all...
No! It does not even clean the slightest mineral powder inspite of its oily structure. Afterwards, you have to remove the excess oil and residue of make-up with lots of toner. Furthermore, the botlle is not easy to handle with, the product does not come out easily...
This was the quad used in my bridal make-up. For referance, I have light-medium skin, rosy cheeks, hazel eyes. This quad is a must for hazel eyes, since it highlights yellow and green in the iris.
Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking Mascara

I only used the mini GWP size. It is so far away from the original Faux Cils Mascara, more fluid. It even does not give volume as the name suggests.
I did not buy this, but tried it on many occasions on. Too sweet and head-ache inducing....
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow New Look Mascara

Dior could have done a better mascara considering the success of the lash serum. Even cheap, ordinary mascaras work better.
I also wonder whether I am using this properly, since it simply does not work on my color treated, fine and damaged hair at all. I agree that it has a wonderful smell and does not leave a greasy look behind, but it does not repair the hair or eliminates frizz. The overnight serum of Kerastase works far better.
