This toner is very refreshing without being harsh. It removes the last bits of residue I get with my cleanser and is great for waking my face up in the mornings! It's not a bad price, about £5 for 200ml and lasts for ages. The only gripe I have is about the lid - it's fine if it's just sitting in your bathroom but travelling with it is another story as I've found it's quite prone to opening itself! The design is a bit annoying and hard to describe, the reviewer about describes it well - but it's not enough to put me off. Normally when I change a skincare product I'd get a bit of a breakout (which is why I rarely change them!) but with this I didn't, so I know it's uber gentle. For a mid-range cleanser, you won't find better than this.
I've been using this in shade number 13 for about 8yrs as a powder over my foundation. My foundation has changed a number of times but I've always used creme puff as a setting powder and it never fails me. It's feathery light and doesn't cake, the colour is very even and gives a lovely glow with the added bonus of knowing my makeup won't budge until I want it to! This is one product I never leave home without, it's brilliant for touching up if you get a bit of shine during a stressful day!

Ok, so it takes a little time to get the hang of using this primer, but it's definitely worth it. For £10 I think it's just as good as some of the more high end primers. I've found it's best to apply moisturiser and then immediately put on the primer - it's a thick consistency and unusual to say the least, but I've found it to be a real good little bargain. Although I'm a fan and would buy it again, I think Smashbox oil-free primer is the best one in existence! Though this is a good everyday product.
I used to use a similar Clarins product for makeup removal and I can honestly say this is better - I used to be a sucker for brands. Clarins left my skin feeling oily and after a while, very sensitive and tight. This product sweeps through even the heaviest of makeup with one go - no rubbing required. Takes off eye makeup really easily and the best thing is it costs less than £5 compared to £15 for the Clarins equivalent. I don't like creamy cleansers so this is perfect for me. The only thing I don't like is the design of the lid - once or twice I've ended up with a leaking bottle when either the top snaps off or the actual lid doesn't screw on properly - if you're buying one check it's ok when you lift it off the shelf, nothing more annoying than finding half of it inside the bag!
Love this blush, really easy to build up the colour and is a really lovely colour once on - don't be afraid of how bright it looks in the box! Has great staying power too, once it's on it won't budge until you want it to. I'm definitely a MAC fan, and these powder blushes are fantastic.
One of the worst exfoliators I have ever used and also the most expensive. It doesn't even smell nice! The grains do not exfoliate my skin very well at all, I've used many others at half the price which are miles better. Very disappointing from such a popular brand, especially since I find their other products great. This left my skin dry and it might as well be an overpriced body wash.
I got this a little cheaper on a Boots special offer and it's well worth using! It feels like a proper face mask even using only for 5mins. My skin feels smooth but not tight after using which is nice, other masks usually leave my face feeling dry. After using it the first time my skin looked glowing! The pot lasts for ages and I will definitely repurchase
I love this cream, I use it as a base for my makeup each day and also at night. My skin is baby soft and, unlike a lot of other moisturisers, it hasn't caused me any breakouts. The price is great and one pot last ages. After using overpriced Clarins and Clinique moisturisers for the last few years I am now converted!
