Shampoo -Alba Botanica - Honeydew Nourishing Hair Wash

Love this shampoo:) One of the best Ive found. Hair feels soft and smooth and my sensitive scalp feels so much better. Dosent get greasy too quickly with this either, normally by the end of the 2nd day my hair is really greasy but with this it is starting to get oily but nothing like it normally is. Definately recommend.
I really like this mascara, has a really glossy finish unlike every drugstore one ive tried,they all look really dull. This gives my lashes a natural look without clumping,just defines the lashes nicely. The only drawback is that it isnt water proof. Oh and if your looking for really full lashes this isnt for you. Im definately going to rebuy.
I dont like this on me. It looks nice when I first apply it but then when I looked in the mirror later I thought ugh that looks kinda of tacky,garish I dont know. Bouquet is my favourite so far.
I got this in a sample pack and didnt even pick it up and use it for a month! When I did finally get round to using it I thought wow this is great. I use Avene 40+ spray and find it a bit shiny,oily. I apply this a few minutes after applying my sunscreen (before makeup) and it really mattifies my sunscreen. In fact I find it only works to do this when I apply it before makeup. When I tried it after applying my MMU it just wasnt the same. I seem to need less MMU when I use this first as it seems to make my skin look better even though its very light in colour. I will be buying a full size of this for sure:)
Sunscreen -Paula's Choice - Essential Non-Greasy Sunscreen spf 15

I gave this three points for the texture as i really like it and my skin feels nice when i wear this BUT I only wear this when I am going to get barely any sun exposure as its not stable. Why PAULA cant you add octocrylene(spelling?) to the mix and make it more stable at least! Get with it!
I love the texture of this.It feels just right on my slightly oily skin and sinks in really well leaving a soft smooth finish.This dosent make me break out, I'm just not sure if this has the best uva protection though..think I'll save this for the days I know I'll be getting minimal exposure to the sun.
Sunscreen -Avene - Ultra High Protection Spray 50 plus

I really like this product.It has good stable protection and makes my skin feel really nice with no white cast or clogged pores and I love the smell. It does leave a slight shine to my skin though but a bit of Jurlique Silk Dust helps with this.I use this on the days I'm wearing makeup and La Roche Posay anthelios fluide extreme for makeup free days(my HG) I prefer the LRP because it leaves me matt all day but this is definately a fav.as well due to the stable sunscreen and the fact it dosent break me out
While I dont mind this I dont think I'd bother buying again.It really just feels like I'm wiping water on my face and you can barely smell the tea tree in this,it is just tea tree WATER I guess. Its a so so product for me,I've used better.
I really wanted to like this but wasnt that impressed.It dosent take makeup off properly and I only want to wash once,not use something else first and then this. It left a film on my skin and my skin looked dull.Sure it felt soft but not clean and refreshed,even after removing last traces with toner.I'm starting to think their cleansers are a bit gimmicky,I've only tried 4 of them but the only one I've had luck with is AOBS.
This is a great product,I was hesitant to buy it at first because it was white but after reading good reviews gave in and bought it and I'm glad I did.This stuff gets rid of the shine but looks totally natural on,unlike normal face powder with talc.It feels really light on and I love the smell(I got lavender)If you look pale with this on then you"re using too much.You only need a tiny bit so the jar will last months,so good value for $20au.Unlike some I actually like the jar,the sifter lid is a great idea.Definately reommend trying this.
I just tried this tonight followed by veganese conditioner and I LOVE it,my hair feels so soft and clean.This shampoo gives you a really squecky(sorry about spelling)clean so I probably wont use it every wash as it could get too drying for my hair which gets alot of hot styling(irons,hairdryer etc)Will definately purchase full size bottle and try out more of their products. P.s love the smell of this and Lush are very generous with their samples. Just gave it 4 lippies because I've only used once it usually takes me a week to know for sure if my scalp is going to get irritaded by a product
THANK GOD i found this stuff! My scalp itchiness was driving me crazy,I'd be lying in bed at night willing myself not to scratch! From the very first time the itchiness was relieved and now I have no scalp problems.You dont even have to use it much to be effective,this is the only product that works for me and I tried heaps of them.GREAT product.
Sunscreen -La Roche Posay - Anthelios XL SPF 60 Fluide Extreme

I really like this product,dosent feel greasy on my skin at all and has a nice texture however I have been told that you shouldnt use foundation with this product because the minerals in makeup can destroy the sunscreen in this so wont be using it much,just on days I'm going without makeup. Will stick with avene-tinosorb is not affected by mineral makeup.Still keep the 4 lippies cause it is good sunscreen with nice texture.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Style - Smoothing Milk

I bought this a couple of days ago and so far am very happy with this smoothing milk, my hair is definately smoother and softer and I like that it dosent make my hair feel greasy at all or that I have alot of product in my hair. Will update when I have been using it a bit longer.UPDATE: I agree with reviewer below this like just using a leave in conditioner in your hair-I still think its nice but I need more hold than that
