My favourite body scrub ever!!! I thought I found my HG with L'Oreal's exfotonic, but this has the same texture (perhaps slightly less foamy when you use it), it's a bit cheaper too and I prefer the citrus-y fresh smell of this and the bright yellow tube it comes in. The granules are big enough to feel, and it is quite "concentrated" so that you can actually feel it going to work. I prefer a tube packaging to a tub as it I find it easier to use in the shower as I tend to drip water into tubs when I scoop stuff out. I'm on my second tube and will buy and buy again!

I have combination skin which is acne prone on my forehead, shiny T-zone, yet normal and clear on my cheeks. As I live in Oz, I was looking for a product with sunscreen that was non greasy yet gave me sun protection for everyday wear (I wear Kit Cosmetic's 30+ sunscreen when I plan to spend most of the day outdoors) and I found that Nude was a good match for my fair/medium asian skintone. I found it was more pigmented than my MD Skincare tinted moisturiser I was using previously. I find that I need a light moisturiser under this as the tinted moisturiser sometimes doesn't feel moisturising enough when the weather is dry. I find that depsite being oil free, it still leaves my face looking (but not feeling) oily. To counter this, i dust some Laura Mercier powder foundation on top with a powder brush after applying concealer for my undereye circles and blemishes. I love trying out new products but will keep using this until I find something better but perhaps less expensive.
This foot cream is a bit pricey, but I found it online for alot cheaper. It has a creamy consistency and moisturises well but what I like most about it is that is non greasy and sinks in fast. It has quite a strong minty scent, which I find it quite pleasant and refreshing. A nice pampering treatment for my feet after a long day.
I was given a generous sample of this by a SA and have tried it twice this week. Like other reviewers have mentioned, it smells like apricot jam and has the texture of jam. It doesn't dry and at first it doesn't feel like anything is happening but after awhile, I could feel my skin warming and when I wash it off my skin feels sooo smooth. I have an oily, very breakout prone forehead (but normal, clear cheeks) and though I love using scrubs, I'm wary of using anything abrasive on my forehead because of my breakouts. It is a bit pricey in Oz but I'm sufficiently impressed to go out and by the full sized version next week.
