I actually love this self tanner! I've tried a lot and for me, this is the most natural looking one. I have very pale legs and this just takes the edge off without looking orange or fake. It just gives them a nice tone and I'm not embarrassed to show my legs, haven't had a problem with streaking either. I always put a moisturiser on my knees, ankles, heels and any dry areas first though... otherwise like with any tanners, the colour will stick there more. I have not used this on any other areas of my body (just legs) so can't comment on how it would work else where. I'm not going for the whole body tanned look. If you want a deeper colour you just put in on for 2 days in a row. Usually I end up with 2 or 3 different brands by the end of summer but I've happily used this all summer! I still have a lot of product left too. It's obviously not for everyone but it was just what I wanted in a tanner, plus it's "100% natural" which is always a bonus.
This is great for a more heavy/dramatic look. Thickens lashes, intense color but unfortunately it does flake sometimes. Might only be 1 or 2 flakes but if you try rub them off with your finger you smear black everywhere.. I love the look of this mascara and it doesn't irritate my eyes so unless I find something better I will continue to repurchase.
This looks great on but unfortunately it gets everywhere. It's so wet and I have quite long lashes so if I blink in the process of putting this on it just gets everywhere.
This mascara is great for a more natural look, it separates lashes nicely and doesn't clump at all. Like little spidey legs. ;) I wouldn't use this for going out at night or for a more dramatic look but for every day it's great. Doesn't sting my eyes or anything when I remove either.

This has good pigmentation and lasts all day for me. I love how it is very black but I find it is quite dry and need to dip my eyeliner brush in a tiny bit of something greasy before using it to get an ultra smooth line. Also need to wash you brush after every time you use it as it sets hard. I think I will be trying other brands before repurchasing.
I recently discovered this after my hairdresser used it on me and I am hooked! I was sceptical about putting an oil in my hair and I usually hate using hair products because they feel greasy and heavy. I have very long hair and this just makes it look and feel so much better. A very small amount through damp hair, concentrating on the ends is all you need. Seems to cut blow drying time too! Bonus. And if I have fly aways I use the tiniest amount to smooth them on dry hair. I think i'll be using this forever.

So this is really expensive.. but I'm on my 2nd or 3rd pottle so I keep going back for more! Smells like honey and yummy natural ingredients. I find creams soak in and disappear too quickly but this lasts a lot longer. It is waxy so not that great when you want heavier eye makeup to stay put. I use Clinique all about eyes when I wear more eye makeup as that soaks in. It says only for day use but I love this for night when I don't care that my eyes look a bit greasy.
I love this! You can use it in so many ways, more gold, more black, mix them together, wet, dry... aaahmazing. Can easily build the colour up or just brush over slightly for a sheer gold/bronze look. I love getting a little brush and running over my black winged eyeliner for a touch of sparkle. Staying power is also great and a little goes a long way. I use this all the time and it's still like new.
I love this, I've gone a bit peach crazy and this indulges me completely. Not too bright, not too dull. Just a great cute and summery colour or something to brighten up those winter days. Great with gloss or by itself. <3
I switched to this after the cottonseed foaming cleanser was stinging my eyes and leaving me a little dry. But this one is awesome! No irritation and still does a great job at cleansing. It smells so fresh and yummy and has a nice lather. Works well with my clarisonic too! Really love this cleanser.
This cleanser smells amazing (like fresh laundry or something) and does a great job. The downside is it stings the hell out of my eyes and for that reason I wouldn't buy again. Even if I don't rub directly around my eyes, somehow it manages to get in there and sting. I switched to their Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Shea Butter and this does not sting at all. Smells just as good and still has a nice lather and no stinging eyes. Also found this is not as drying as the cottonseed one.
I really wanted to like this BB cream but unfortunately the color is just so wrong for me. I'm quite fair but this just made me look like a zombie. Very grey with pink undertones. Ick! I'm usually Buff in Revlon or Claire 02 in chanel foundation.
This stuff looks, feels and smells like dishwashing liquid. I've reserved this to cleaning my makeup brushes as it's just too gross to put on my face. Doesn't leave you feeling that clean either. I have used their scrubs for years so thought I'd give this a try. Never again.
I love this lipstick! I wear it nearly everyday, it's peachy and delicious... And not too full on to wear in daylight. With gloss over the top it's even more juicy looking. Love it..

These things are indeed awesome, they wear really well but unfortunately they are so expensive! Only down side is price, so will try find them cheaper online. Farmers sell them for $19.95nzd... argh! I put a top coat on to make them last longer too. Lots of comments on my nails with these on!
