If you like vanilla-scented and sexy smells, this definitely is the one! I got a sample last christmas, and instantly fell in love. This is not a floral smell at all, and for me that`s a plus (can not stand floral scents..). This might me too heavy to use in summer (at least in the day) though, because it is quite strong. But for fall and winter it seems perfect.
Cleansers -Nuxe - REVE DE MIEL Face Gentle Cleansing Gel

I would say that this cleanser is better for people with really dry skin. I have combination skin and this cleanser, though very gentle and does not irritate my sensitive skin, does not seem to remove enough oil etc. from my skin, because after a while my skin is always very oily and greasy. So now I only use this cleanser at night and for that purpose it works well, but in the day time I need something that cleans better (but is still not too harsh) so that my make up stays put..I`ve been using Clinique`s extra-mild facial soap and that works better.
Liquid -Biotherm - Sense Hydra-radiance foundation SPF15

When I first bought this Biotherm foundation about a year ago I was so thrilled, I thought I had finally found the perfect foundation for me. It blended well, the tone was good (not pinkish) and it felt good on my skin. I have super sensitive skin with acne scars and imperfections, it is oily and dry at the same time (isn`t that just wondeful..), so it`s really hard for me to find a good foundation. I am not so sure what exaxtly changed, but after using this foundation for 5 months or so I noticed some rather bad things about this foundation: it made me break out on my forehead, I got a lot of pimpels and bumps there. The lasting power didn`t seem so good to me anymore and I had to touch up much more. The colour seemed off to me as well, way too yellow all of the sudden. I usually like a yellow based foundation but this seemed way too unnatural(even though I had the lightes shade!). So now this foundation has really become a huge dissapointment for me and I want to find a better one...for now I have been trying Estee Lauder Double Wear light and Biotherm Long Wear Detox, but they are too drying for me. If only there was a foundation out there that is as moisturizing as the Biotherm sense hydra foundation, but without the negatvie side-effects!
