very impressed with this moisturiser, I have oily/combo skin and this is just enough moisture, superlight no breakouts does what it says on the packet - hydrates. oil free, cotains grape water and vitamin E would def purchased again have spent more on expensive products and this is far better than some brands. would prefer in a tube
bought this cos of the namre and the reviews and a friend recommended, been using it for a few days, so early to say but do like the smell, and the feeln that its actually going into the skin after cleansing face, the ingredients attracted me as well, wld buy again but wld look for bargain if poss
this is my fave product from elemis at the moment, cos i have used many face washed that dr out my skin even tho im oily, but this doesnt dry out your skin at all i use it after i have cleansed with the lime blossom and for once my skin isnt tight after washin, wld like to continue with this, havnt seen an improvemnt in skin but i think thats doen to problems with my hormones at the moment.
bought a sample size and does what it says it buffs the skins, not too harsh has a nice refreshing smell if it was cheaper would buy regularly but is v dear can find cheaper things that will buff just the same
when u hear the word peel u think of a painful process but this was jus a nice smellin cream that goes on quite nicely but to be honest havnt really seen any obvious results, nice for pampering but not if u want to see a transformation in skin
Cleansers -Elemis - Balancing lime blossom cleanser

have used this for about 4months and i can say that it is good cos i went and bought another, i i think its the egg protein, that is helpin unclog my pores, not sure but wld recommend bottle does last ages even tho is £17 but try ebay
love love perfect nude colour I have been searching for after hearing good things i got this wen i returned my mac containers for recycling so many shades to choose from but this was def the best choice dont need much at all just gives that extra smething to your lips nice satin finish can be drying to make sure lips are well moisturised before applying! wldnt buy again EDIT -actually find it toooo drying my lips wld go for something more moisturising nex time
Was very disappointed with this product as I ad read very positive reviews and saw good ratings on MUA, I am going down the natural skincare road and thought this would be a great day moisturiser, however after a few uses, it caused a rash all over my face, I suspect it may be the Paba content, not sure but I wont be purchasing Aubrey Organics againdue to this, too scared to rick it as this rash is itching and very uncomfortable not to mention unpleasant to look at!
Scrubs -Biore - Pore Perfect Pore Unclogging Scrub

the title sounds very inviting but I found that it didnt really unclog my pores, is refreshing nice scent, strange texture and colour, wouldnt buy it again - mayb if it was on special offer
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

love love love great exfoliatoer with the right texture of beads for my skin and salicylic to help those pores, been using for a 2 weeks and definitely see a difference, even the blackheads in my nose have started to disappear which is a big deal cos i thought nothing cld get them out! think combining this with the OCM has made the difference definitely recommend this and the price isnt bad, look for special offers sainsburys was doing BOGOF!
used to be a clinique fan but now I am going down the natural route this is def a harsh product to be using on your skin, your basically stripping your skin of its natural oils, yes it feels tinlgy and clean after wards but for how long???, it just makes your skin work harder, especially for oily skin dont recommend the clinique range and many have found better systems than this, its all media hype in my opinion,try something without alcohol, i am now using a natauraltoner with no alcohol no chemicals and my skin feels soooo rested, we depend too much on these chemical filled goods thinking they are the miracle product, WRONG!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
jtbtth2me 6/10/2009 12:04:00 PM
sorry to say this the name of this product doesnt live up to its title, just fancy words Im afraid from clinique, dont waste your money, again far better moisturisers out there for less money! nothing dramatic and definitely nothing different about this
Treatments -Vichy - Normaderm Night Chrono-Action Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care
jtbtth2me 6/10/2009 11:59:00 AM
I sound like the doom and gloom reviewer but am trying to be as honest as poss, i have used these products long enough to give an honest opinion, i wonder if some reviews were written after one night of using it! anyway didnt like this at all, made my skin breakout, maybe it was everything being purged out but continued use just upset my skin, again price is an issue, dont mind paying money for a product that works, it did nothing for my pores and i have big pores!
Toners -Vichy - Normaderm Purifying Astringent Toner
jtbtth2me 6/10/2009 11:57:00 AM
this was better than the normaderm moisturiser did tighten pores, but didnt really see the benefits of having glycolic and salicylic acid in it, was very inactive ingredients! wldnt buy again, definietely tried better astringents, it is overpriced too

Didnt think this product does what it claims to do, it is overpriced not very hydrating, made my skin look ashy, there are far more better products out there to try before you purchase this! saw no significant change in skin
