Treatments -Boots - no7 Protect and Perfect beauty serum

I have been using this product for about 5 years now. I repurchase it because I feel it improves the condition of my skin. I have had a few months here and there where I didn't use it (usually due to running out and not having the money to buy more) and I noticed my skin doesn't look as good as when I am using it. I apply it morning and night under Boots Protect and Perfect Intense moisturiser. I give it 4 lippies as I don't find it the best base for makeup. I would like to try Visionnaire by Lancome next and see if that is any better. For the price, I highly recommend giving this serum a go. It does say to use for 4 weeks before you see results. I wonder what I would look like now if hadn't been using for 5 years! Maybe the same, who knows! People never guess that I'm 30 (usually think I'm early 20s so perhaps it is doing its job).
Moisturizers -Clinique - Anti-Blemish Solutions Clearing Moisturizer

I used to use this all the time as I suffer from blemishes around my chin area. It worked great along with the cleansing foam and the clarifying lotion. I decided to try a different brand to see if that would be better and my skin took a turn for the worse. I am now back on Clinique and it is clearing up again. I only use the cream on the affected area, not my whole face as I only get spots on my chin. When my skin is bad I use this morning and night. When my skin is clearing up I use it only at night and then my regular moisturiser in the morning as it can be a little drying on the skin. I find it really calms the redness of blemishes quite quickly. It is also a good base for make-up with my foundation sitting well on top. I have bought this many times and will continue to do so as it seems to be the best product for my blemish-prone skin. Believe me, I have tried many anti-blemish products!
I really like this scrub. I bought the full size after receiving a free sample. It has lasted me for a few months even though I use it very regularly. The instructions aren't clear as how to use it but I have always wet my face before using it which seems to work well. I try to use it every other day, sometimes more often if I feel like my skin needs it. I do suffer from blemishes around my chin but I find this helps to smooth the bumps away. I will be buying it again soon as the tube has almost ran out. I have cut it in half so that I can get the last bit out!
I really like this mascara. It does seem to curl my very long lashes slightly. I don't use eyelash curlers when I'm using this mascara. I have bought it a few times but I like to try new mascaras so am currently using a Rimmel mascara after this ran out. My only gripe is that it seems to dry out quite quickly (I don't ever pump the wand in and out of the tube). I would have rated it higher if the tube lasted longer.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I love this product. I always use it before applying my eyeshadow because the shadow sticks to it so well meaning I rarely, if ever have to re-apply. I used to take my eyeshadow out with me on a night out to reapply where it would crease. I no longer have to do this now I use the primer potion. It's a must-have for eyeshadow wearers. I will continue to buy this product.
Unfortunately this cream did not agree with my eyes. It made the skin around my eyes itchy and pink and when I woke up in the morning after applying it before bed, my eyes were all puffy. I did the spot test on my forearm before as directed and did not have an adverse reaction there. I don't consider myself as having over-sensitive skin as I have used plenty of eye creams before which had been fine. Perhaps it's the Q10 ingredient that didn't agree with me. I am now using a Boots Time Delay Wrinkle Prevention eye cream which is suiting me just fine.
