When you first use it, it doesnt feel rich or creamy or that it will get the tangles out, however if you have fine limp hair, you will love it. Because its so light, it gives hair lots of volume. I usually pair this with origins no deposit shampoo once or twice a week as a clarifying wash.
Love, love, love this lipgloss. At first I wasnt sure, looking at the tube it had all sorts of flecks and sparkles in it. But when applied, it looks like the most natural nude shade. Matches my lips perfectly.

I really, really wanted to love this because of all the great reviews here. Alas, it wasnt to be. Broke me out almost instantly.
I was deciding between the Clinique brush cleaner and this. Settled for this because it was half the price of the Clinique one! Works quite well tho I wish it came with a pump spray. Everytime i try to pour from this it ends up dribbling down the side of the bottle. A bugbear, but I'll still buy this again, unless Clinique drops its price.
I dont know why i ever bothered with powder and brushes before. This is a breeze to apply and gives you perfect natural looking brows. Took one lippy off because it doesnt seem to last through the day and i also seem to be going thro it quite fast. I'd still repurchase tho.
I initially bought this because of its SPF. Thought it would be a better and less pore-clogging alternative then putting sunscreeen on my face under makeup. That said it stayed in my drawer for months before I pulled it out for an event that lasted the whole day. Because the event started at 6am and i was going to be running around the whole day, I thought i had better use something that would help my foundation stay on. I cannot rave enough about this product, it made my skin look flawless, gave my face this luminous and healthy glow and my makeup stayed put for hours without turning into a greasy mess. Because it contains licorice, I'm convinced some of my dark spots may have faded. Definitely going to use this more often. I have this in Mimosa which has more yellow undertones and is meant to illuminate tired skin.
Eye Makeup Remover -Clarins - Instant Eye Make-up Remover

I bought this after all the great reviews here because i needed something that would remove waterproof mascara with ease. This does start to work upon contact with minimal tugging, however I was a little disappointed that it took a while to completely remove all traces of mascara. Had to repeat the process a few times. The good news is, it doesn't sting or cause blurry vision with contact lenses in. Bad news is, the hefty price.

Think this works best when used together with the matching shampoo, and only used occasionally, not daily. Leaves my fine straight hair nicely conditioned without weighing it down.
Shampoo -TRESemme - Vitamin E Moisture Rich Shampoo

I seem to be in the minority but I actually quite like this shampoo and it's matching conditioner. I dont use this daily tho, only when I think my hair needs a little moisture. Seems to leave my straight fine hair full of volume and bounce. Good enough for my hairdresser to notice and compliment.
This remover doesnt remove eye makeup very well, especially not waterproof eye makeup. Feels kinda soapy so be careful not to get this into eyes as it can sting. Has to be rinsed off to get rid of that oily greasy feeling it leaves behind.
Whilst this mascara did add volume, it tends to clump. Applying just two coats gave me spider leg lashes which i had to comb out. Dont recall any clumping with the non-waterproof version. Good news is no flaking or smudging through the night. Bad news is I didnt notice any curling effect and it's murder to try to get out. Used three different eye make up removers and there was still traces left over. All that rubbing caused quite a few lashes to fall out.
I cant believe my sister and friends recommended this for battling spots. It's almost pure alcohol. Stung like hell when i put in on...and I used a q-tip! Would have been worth if it had worked...didnt seem to dry the spots out or help them subside. Will stick to a good BP cream for spot treatment.
Great at keeping lips moisturised and conditioned. Packaging is not the most practical. I like the lip conditioner in the tube but that one doesnt come with SPF. Really like the vanilla smell. Must be quite strong, because when i wear it people around me say i smell sweet - like baked goods!
Great for breathing moisture and shine into dry and damaged hair, especially after a day out in sun and surf. Tends to weigh fine hair down a bit so i only use it if I need intensive conditioning.
This is very good for hair that's been fried by sun, surf and colouring. Leaves damaged hair feeling silky soft. I only use it when necessary as it tends to make fine hair like mine very limp.
