Overall, I really like this product. The coverage is very good for a BB cream, it covers everything I need to cover! The color is fine but it oxidizes and can get slightly too orange on my skin (for reference, i'm around nc20). I apply it in the morning and it lasts all day. At first, my face looks matte, but a few hours later the finish gets dewy (not oily). Here in Canada, the packaging and the formula are different. The tube is very messy, leaky and it has no SPF, which is very disappointing considering the fact that the US version has SPF. I HATE the packaging considering that the cream is very watery, the canadian tube in horrible. It is very messy, even when the cap is on, it leaks. I would repurchase for the product but the canadian tube is a disaster..
I love this mask so much ! The first time I used it, I wasn't sure about the smell, but I guess I got used to it because i'm in love now. This stuff smells amazing, i'm totally crazy about it ! I don't put it all over my face, only on my nose and area that feel oilier. It really helps to reduce my pore and it does not sting at all. The only problem I have with lush products is that they're only good for a month.
Cleansers -Bioderma - Sensibio H2O (aka Crealine H20 Solution micellaire)

HOLY GRAIL product ! I love this product so much! Best makeup remover EVER! I I use the shiseido cotton pad and it instantly removes my face makeup. It is very gentle and my skin does not sting at all after using bioderma.I use my clarisonic after and there is no leftovers of foundation on the brush, so it gives you an idea of how effective is bioderma. It feels great and smooth on the skin and even with a very sensitive skin, it did not break me out at all. I bought the big bottle with the pump and even after 2 months, I did not even use the quarter of the bottle. The only downside to this product is that it is not that effective with eye makeup but I is not a big deal to me considering that I use a eye makeup remover. worth every single penny! love it, love it, loooooove it !
I use my clarisonic for about two weeks, maybe two weeks is no enough to give a good review but and so far I like it. First of all, after reading all these positive reviews,I expected more from this tool. Yes my skin feels cleaner after I used it but it totally dried out my skin. I have a combination skin and flakes are pretty unusual for me. About the purging phase, yes you will probably break out, but it is really not that bad. I had a few pin size spots on my cheek but nothing big or uncoverable. I will do an update soon :)
I absolutely love this foundation! It's so lightweight and easy to apply. It also offers a great coverage but if you have more rednesses than me, you might need a bit of concealer if you are looking for a full coverage foundation ( I have a few pale rednesses on my left cheek). It lasts all day. I apply it in the morning and it stays until I remove it at night. The finish is very natural, and it gives me a nice glow.The package is amazing I love the fact that it comes in a beautiful glass jar, it look very sophisticated. It comes in a lot a shades so I think everyone should find the right one. I have a pretty light skin with yellow undertones depending on the season and buff6w fits me great ! I use Bisque n1 to cover dark circles. Overall, it totally worth the price,
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

The first month I used this , I thought I finally found my HG moisturizer. It made my skin very smooth with this kind of silky finish. I did not like the smell but the results were great so it wasn't a big deal. Unfortunately,after a few weeks of usage, I started getting very oily on my t-zone and the rest of my face had a few dry patches. I even noticed 2-3 breakout on my nose, and I NEVER break out in this area of my face. Overall, i'm disappointed of that product, it made me oily on my t-zone and dry on the rest of my face. Definitely not that good for combo skin like mine.

I really loved this mascara. My lashes are very short and they almost seems long when I wear YSL mascara. The only thing that i did not like about this product is the brush, there is too much product on it and it can get pretty hard to avoid clumps.
Concealers -Smashbox - Photo Op Under Eye Brightener

I did NOT like this product at all.. it is soooo watery ! It makes my under eyes shiny and the coverage is nonexistent... When i have dark circles, they're usually very light but this ''concealer'' can't even cover it, imagine what it would do on very dark circles.. I don't recommend this product to anyone and it is very expensive considering the results. Maybe you could use it as an highlighter but i did not try it and considering the watery texture, i'm not sure about the results.
This product feels great on the skin the first minutes, the smell is delicate but it also made my nose area very oily. Few minutes after I apply it, my nose area feels oily and sticky and this feeling last all day long.. This area of my face tends to be a little bit oily, but when i use Aqualia Termal, it gets worst. I do not recommend this moisturizer if you tend to have an oily/ combo skin because this cream is very rich. But if your skin is dry, it might be a good moisturizer for you.
