This is a simple, gentle, good day-time moisturizer for my acne-prone but dry skin. Works well under make up. 76% certified organic ingredients.
An excellent mascara. I've tried many mascaras across most price ranges and none compare to Full and Soft. Works best when used with an eyelash curler. I find I need to buy a new one / replacement every four weeks, not because it runs out but because it goes a bit dry and clumpy (I don't leave the wand/lid off long and I don't 'pump' it).
Foundations -ModelCo - 3 in1 Fluid Splash Foundation

Not a fan. Firstly, the choice of colors is limited, so I had to compromise and get a color that's probably not the most perfect match for my skin. I've also had a couple of occasions where I've had to wipe it all off after applying because it went blotchy for no apparent reason (even when applied over the ModelCo primer). The powder finish concept is good, but it means the foundation itself is kind of talcy. The concealer in the lid is good. Maybe my skin is too dry or old and perhaps this product is better suited to young, dewy skin!
I've just purchased my second bottle of this. I have hormone related acne, and amazingly I find this is good for my skin and doesn't aggravate break-outs etc. I use it at night for a more intense moisturizer - it's probably a bit full on for day time though.
My all-time favorite lip gloss! Provides good thick coverage and looks so good. I've bought about six different flavors over the past couple of years, but Lychee is hard to beat.
Cleansers -Shiseido - The Skincare Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam

I adore this cleanser - and it lasts a long time because you only need a tiny amount. The only downside is it can be drying - nothing too dramatic, but sometimes I find that I need to moisturize immediately because my skin feels tight. I've tried various cleansers over the years, but I always come back to this one!
