Great daytime mascara. It is defining, and it goes on really well. I bought it because all of the other mascaras tend to dry out my lashes and then they break off leaving my lashes looking aweful. It really works for growing back your lashes and making them look great again. It is reasonable in price, and does have a good wand.
I think this is a great mask, it is very hydrating (not moistursing). I am 32 and starting to get fine lines - bummer... Anyway, the other day I was desperate for a quick fix as I was going out. It was actually quite incredible - literally like a drink of water for your skin. Very happy. It is a gel mask and it would appear that the more dehydrated your skin is, the faster it sinks in... Also, you can put it under your eyes to hydrate those poor old laugh lines. Get a sample, and give it a go! :)
I have bought about 3 tubes of this in my time and although it is not like a traditional foundation (ie like a flat flawless mask) it does help to smooth out the skin and make it look more even. I have combination skin and I have found that even in summer it does not break me out. It does feel a little greasy and shiny, just like other foundations though. I find that the best way for me to apply it is by mixing it with a little moisturiser either with or without spf in it. I just put it in to my palm and mix them together in my hands and then kind of pat and press the mix into my face. THe colours are pretty funny but i guess it is just trial and error for your skin type and colour. I use 1g in winter and 2g in summer. Not perfect - but not bad. It is the only make up I can wear that my boyfriend doesn't say "oh yuck" as he likes a more natural look. Dermalogica do samples in this, they are tiny though, so maybe try and get a couple so that you can have a go over 2 days to see if it is right for you. Good luck!

I have sensitive combination skin that is bordering on oily in summer and then just normal with dryness on cheeks in winter. I live in a Sydney which is humid in the summer months. This smells yummy - if you like herb-ally smells like me! It is very moisturizing so I can only really get away with using this in winter, otherwise it tends to be too nourishing and can cause me to break out. It is quite amazing how the colour seems to accent your own very well and gives you a warm healthy glow. To be sure it is right, just buy a mini sized one and give it a go. Make sure you try it a couple of times, and maybe in a couple of different seasons.
i like adding this mask to the DH clay to mix up into a creamier mask. I like the smell and texture on its own aswell, but do think that in summer it might be a little too hydrating.
It is a lovely colour. Especially in summer. Get one of the SA's to try it on you in a store first, just in case. I think most will be happy though! I like that only a small amount comes out as you can have a subtle look, or add more for a juicier glossier look. Will definitely buy again!
It is amazing how little you need! I rub mine on a natural sea sponge and it is great! Does not seem too drying. It is however summer, so maybe in the winter months the Caribbean Therapy which I want to try will be better. Scent is quite mild I thought. I have smelled way more minty soaps before! EDIT: The soap bar cracked up only after a short time and that smell didn't get better. I am on Dr Bronners Castile gel soap in the hemp lavender now - much much much better!

I have combination, sensitive. I have tried Jane Iredale, Bare essentuals etc etc. This one is fantastic! No itchiness, no clogging, perfect coverage, blends in well. Very impressive really. Worth a try at least at store, and then walk around with it on while you are shopping to see how it settles and feels.
This is a great cleanser. Once I stopped scrubbing the heck out of my face with it and just rolling and pressing, I have found it works fantastically. I would recommend it.
Well I have used this product over the years many a time, but only recently was told by a GOOD D.H Sales Assistant, that you only need the smallest amount (less than a teaspoon) and just add either more water or more toner to make it go further. It is much more comfortable on the skin too. I love it. It seems to help even skin tone, help circulation, draw out impurities etc etc. Like many good products if they are not used properly, we can often end up thinking they are not very good. Buy a sample size one, and give it a go, you should be able to get or 5 uses out of it!
I have it in black. It is certainly thicker than their other mascara, and does create more volume, and more length. It is a bit trickier to get off also. One thing I aways notice about Dr Hauschka Mascara is that my lashes GROW... Other mascaras seem to make them dry and brittle and snap off! but not D.H. Thank goodness!
I love this product however my skin finds it too nourishing. However, as I do not have an appropriate eye moisturiser, I thought I would give it a go (just around the bottom orbital bone) It seems to hydrate and plump my find lines. I can imagine for a drier or less cloggy skin type, it would be amazing ! Smells yummy, feels yummy.
I have bought this about 4 times, and I keep coming back to it. Try as I might to find better ones, I just have not managed to. Apart from the fact that it smells yummy IMO, it is in a good wind up stick, and glides on easily to give a good natural gloss. I had the MAC one just recently (god knows why?) and it actually dried my lips to a crisp! They hurt! I also have a REN lip balm, but it is not quite as clear and glossy as the Dr.H balm, it is more like a thick cream, so I will just use up.
There are two primers... 1 has sunscreen in it and the other is just a water based moisturiser - a light but good one. Not really priiming material though. I will certainly use it up, but not purchase again. I will use moisturising sunscren as my primer from now on, at least it is anti aging and cheaper with more product in it (Ultraceuticals) By the way, the sunscreen one blocked my pores :(
It is very very very sticky...Though, when I worked out how much you actually get for your money, I will use every last drop! I basically worked out, that the Estee Lauder Pure Gloss gives you 5 x the amount of gloss for $AU10 less! that means that you are paying more than 5 times as much per ml for yuckky stickky stuff. Of course if you are filthy rich like many young celebs, it doesn't matter how much more it is, but for us normal people, please do not waste your money!
