My HG conditioner. I am surprised this conditioner hasn't got great reviews. It can be very heavy and can weigh your hair, but you only need a tiny amount to go on your hair. Tip is to use a clarifying shampoo or use shampoo for oily or normal hair and then use this conditioner. Leaves my hair with shine and my hair feels very soft.

I am actually amazed to see the high ratings for this product. Nothing special about it, uses loads of foundation. Will not be buying again.

I have been using this night cream for over a year now and would never buy anything else except this. I have combination skin which in winters gets a teeny bit dry. In winters I use my Trilogy rosehip oil first let it sink and then put this night cream. And in summers I just cleanse and tone my face and then put this cream. I have always woken up with glowing skin. I love this night cream and will always repurchase it.
I got introduced to this amazing product over the summer, but I hesitated to use it coz in summer my skin gets very oily and I avoid to put any oils on it. Then in December I thought if giving it a try. I am slowly trying to switch my skin care regime to all organic products so I thought of starting from Trilogy range. I find it very hard for oils to blend on my skin as I don't like the oily cast of it. So I take 3 drops of rosehip oil and i mix it with 2 drops of cold water. And then I spread it evenly on my face and neck. I works brilliant if you have combination/oily skin type. I let it sink in a while and then I put my usual moisturiser or night cream. So far so good, my skin feels plumper, no spots and skin looks glowy. I like Trilogy brand, the people who manufacture them in New Zealand are the best. Whenever I have any questions I put them on their facebook page and they always come back to me with a prompt answer. Now most of their products have an expiration date of 6months, but that's understandable as the products are organic. I am not sure if I will be able to use the oil in summer but I will at least give it a try.
I am actually surprised at the other reviews which say that this foundation is so nice and so on and on.. Well each on their own!! I don't know if I got a wrong batch or something, the foundation was very runny, my brush couldn't hold it. And it smelled a bit off as well. Did nothing for me, didn't even give me a sheer cover or anything. Horrible, don't understand the hype.
I received this nail paint in a swap, I had wanted to try it for a while. But I absolutely hate the euro prices of Revlon, Maybelline and other American drugstore brands. So I refuse to buy anything from these brands on purpose. The consistency is very watery, you will need to put 3-4 coats to get the full impact. When I 1st tried my nails were very short and it didn't look very good during the day. But then I put it on my longish nails, I looked better. I am not totally blown away so will not purchase again.
My HG perfume, I love it I always have a bottle on the go. It's very sweet, fruity and yet very sexy. I have the Body oftener in the same range and the combination works perfect.
Love love love this product, it healed my dry, chapped lips in a day. I am a bit of Lip balm addict and have tried almost every brand available. Now I am not too mad about the fragrance, but love the results. A small jar bought for €7.50 will last me for at least 3 months.
Mac products are way pricier in Europe than US, so my American friend picked this lipstick for me when she went back home for Christmas. Now I have been using this lipstick from the last 3 days only, I like it, but I don't really love it. The finish is great, very moisturising. On my NC40 skin the color looks like a lighter shade of plum, I am sure for extra effect I can build it up. But I am sure you can buy a similar lipstick in cheaper brands.

Love it, it feels oily for the first few minutes after you apply it. But I wait and then put my MAC blot powder and continue with my usual makeup. Looks perfect. Not too much coverage though, I don't like putting full coverage on workdays anyway! A must try for everyone.
