Skin type: sensitive, acne prone + oily. If i have any product left of my face..overnight i'm guaranteed a colony on my face the next morning. I got this awhile back and put it aside because i didn't understand how it worked...until now. The first time i used this, i thought the product was really oily and hated how thick it was on my skin (oil + oily face didn't sit well with me..) + i just couldn't spread the product out and ended up using a FEW pumps. But to further my dislike, i broke out the next day. Thinking there was a high possibility i was using the product wrong (no english labeling), i decided to use this while in the shower. Another mistake, because as soon as it touched water, it just washed off and i couldn't get it to 'cleanse' my skin. At this point, i also got a few drops of water into the oil from the gap at the pump and noticed straight away it had a milky layer. Overall, i was extremely disappointed and filed it away as a 'dud & over-hyped' product. But nether less,i didn't throw out the bottle but i removed it from the shower to free up space. After a long while i came back to it, as i had ran out of cleanser. This time i checked on MUA, armed with directions on usage and lots of desperation (no cleanser can do that to me).. i gave this another go. I also noticed the milky layer had disappeared/dissolved. So i used ONE pump to start off with and was surprised it was much more runny from what i remembered and this one pump was actually enough for my whole face (not sure if this is due to the few drops of water which has seeped in previously but what a difference from the multiple pumps on my first go). Massaged it into my face and then jumped into the shower. Lo and behold...i had NO panda eyes from my eye makeup. EVERYTHING was washed off! i didn't need a q-tip to clean under my lashline... it was..just squeaky clean! Couldn't believe it - so i followed up after with a few swipes of toner on my face and OMG! the cotton pad was clean. Let me tell you, this IS my liquid gold~ Yes, i know its quite expensive..but i can justify this because i've now removed 3 products from my routine (makeup wipes, makeup remover and cleanser) which really works out to be the same. Packaging: I gave packaging a 3 because water seeped in from the pump area...but if it turns out this bit of accidental water contamination made the solution more runny and pliable then i will happily give this rating a 4 for the discovery =D (will try this out on the next bottle) Price/where to buy: If you can get a friend from asia to send it to you otherwise you can purchase this from: - sasa.com - cheapest i found and the ship to AUSTRALIA!! *YAY* - yesstyle.com.au - slightly more expensive - fishpond.com.au - more expensive than above, but they ship alot faster than the above

The initial thought on my first day of using this product was that it's a little sticky but bearable....A week's past and i now have an EXTREMELY ITCHY red rash all over my legs (which has never happened before).Erk! Disgusting! ... Please spot test this on yourselves...i wouldn't wish this itchiness on anyone... I'm never buying this again, nor will i give away my virtually untouched bottle to my friends/family- i rather this goes into the bin!

Well, lets start with the good stuff. Its great for using on pimples (gets rid of them faster) A good overnight quick fix. the bad thing about it, is the little ball...i don't know about ur product, but the moving ball thing keeps fallin out everytime i apply it (its very annoying). Other than that, the product works great and i would definetly buy it again!
YUCK YUCK YUCK! The smell...makes me want to throw up...(especially that egg smell *ewwwww*) but its does wonders for my skin, Feels really clean after and helps reduces blemishes (esp before the monthlies)..however i still don't like the after smell, when you wash it off, you can still smell part of the ingredients...Definite buy but doesnt last very long =(
THIS IS GREAT! One of the best products i've bought. Its not drying and its not oily like other toners. I've gotten use to the scent but i luv how you can just spray it! Feels fantastic when you put it in the fridge and use it on a hot summer day to spritz (very refreshing). Doesnt even clog up pores! would buy this again for sure! Note: I have combo skin (more on the oily side) and prone to breakouts when irritating ingredients come incontact with my skin.
I bought this quite a long while back~ It works really well with other LUSH products but sometimes it gets a little too sticky...and oily. If you wear make-up with its great at first, but after a while, your face gets more oily than it normally would have been.

I found this product quite good at first cause it has good coverage and i didnt break out from it and also it lasts reallllly long. I don't like the bottle (not a fan of the tipping out...should change to a pump!) and removing it, is a nightmare! I would buy this if i was going out for a night of partying but for a normal day, its just too 'heavy', feels like you're wearing alot of layers when really..its just one.
i would only buy this product as a back up (emergency makeup). It rubs off too easily and it doesn't stay on (not even for 3hrs). LUV the light weighty feeling but HATE the packaging...hasnt clogged any pores though.

Started using this about a month ago, during the first week, it worked really well but after it made my skin really oily..as a result i've broken out when i normally don't.
