It's a really good cleanser. Unlike other cleansers for sensitive skins, this one does clean makeup properly (following with a toner to ensure everything has gone). The price is cheap if you can buy when it's on offer (I usually buy it at about 3.5pound). However, it still dries my skin a little bit (maybe because of the SLS ingredient). And I use it up much more quickly than other foaming cleansers (say, Clinique Anti-blemish foaming cleanser, which lasts such a long time for me). I will continue using it until I can find something better.

Great for sensitive skin. Its ingredients are rated 10 on goodguide.com. I really enjoy using it in the morning as it feels so pampering and refreshing. However, it does not remove all makeup (even mineral foundation), so I have to use a seperate cleanser in the evening (or use it as a makeup remover with cotton pad then following by a stronger cleanser). It does not make me break out nor irritate my skin.

Great product! Does not make me break out (which is very rare!). Sinks in straight away and looks good under makeup. And it has 5 star UVA. It's expensive, though, so I will buy when it's on offer only.

I have used so so many brands (Carmex, Burt's bees, Vaseline, Elizabeth Adern, Chapstick, Lauress, Labello, Nivea,... yeah you name them) but none of them is as good as it!!! It's long-lasting and has a pleasant vanilla scent. Normally, I have to reapply lip balm every half hour, but with this amazing balm I still feel my lip hydrated after about 3 hours! I know it may work differently to everyone, but if you haven't found your HG lip balm and haven't tried this one, give it a go!!!!
I have always had problems with chapped lips. I need to use lip balm every season, not only in winter. Actually once every hour :< After doing a lot of research, I tried this as its ingredients are soooo natural. And no petrolatum!!! (which is very rare). Even Carmex has some unatural ingredients. However, it is not as good as I expected. It's just normal, and I have to re-apply every hour as usual. I think I prefer Elizabeth Arden 8 hour lip balm. (which is sadly much more expensive).
I love it so much. Does everything for my lashes. I have tried more expensive brands like Dior but still prefer this. Some people love it, some dont. But I think you should give it a try. I would definitely repurchase :)
