Cleansers -Biore - Revitalize 4-in-1 Self-Foaming Cleanser

The pump bottle is great and the foam feels cool and refreshing to use on my face. The eucalyptus/minty fresh scent really does make a difference, but also seems to sting the eyes if you get the product too close! It lathers well, making it effective as a cleanser. As the bottle states, it is a toner as well, so I don't use a separate toner afterwards, just straight to a moisturiser. I have been using this for about 3 weeks now, I use it twice a day and my skin looks fresh and clear.
I really like the texture of this, it's perfect for skin that is normal/dry. It feels like a creamy moisturiser with sand grains in it so it's not too harsh on my dry skin. My skin feels cleansed and fresh after washing it off. As for the smell, I'm not sure I like it, it does smell like pomegranate (as stated on the back) but it's slightly sour. It's not too drying and the results = smooth skin!
Lipstick -Clinique - Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick

Cute packaging, deliciously creamy smooth formula. It glides on really well without sinking into lip lines. It is absolutely fragrance free. The pigmentation is really good too, only a little is needed to look good. An excellent buy!
It is a fantastic every day lip balm. It does what it says - makes your lips silky smooth and hydrates them. My lips feel so soft and moisturised. I bought the smoothing cherry one which has a pleasant scent. For only $3.95, it is a good buy. My only criticism would be that the packaging looks like it is aimed at tweens. But all is forgiven because its an amazing product!
Skincare - Body -Palmers - Cocoa Butter Formula jar

I would give this 10 lippies if i could. Absolute best body butter out there imo. It's also inexpensive, cost me $8.95 AUD for a 170g tub. It smells fantastic, like chocolate and has an amazing thick creamy consistency. It melts into skin and it really does live up to what it says on the tub - leaves skin silky soft and smooth. This is a great every day moisturiser! Definitely recommended!!
Great for taming frizzies and flyaways. I generally use this for second day restyling to make my hair silky smooth and shiny. It smells amazing and gets rid of unpleasant smells (like smoke from clubs). I bought this on sale online for $9.95 so I'm not sure if i would repurchase at full price.
Lip Treatments -Natio - Natio Moisturising Lip Balm SPF 30+

A good quality lip balm with sun protection. I use it for underneath lipgloss/lipstick and it is a decent moisturiser. However, i did notice the bitter taste in the back of my mouth which has put me off a bit.
Amazing product. I massage this through the ends/lower lengths of my hair after I've washed and is air drying - it makes the ends feel smooth and silky which is great because the ends of my hair dry out so fast from heat styling. It smells lovely like all Tigi products and has a nice texture. Also the packaging is hot pink and bright green so it looks awesome :)
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Strawberry Body Butter

Smells so yummy, good enough to eat! Moisturises skin really well and the smell actually stays - i get so many compliments when i wear it! The texture of the cream is perfect for a body butter, and the tub is handy and compact. Definitely buy if you like strawberry scented lotions/body butters.
A very worthy mascara which actually shows visible results - I haven't had much luck with mascara in the past but this one works for me.
Eyeliner -Unlisted Brand - Face of Australia Liquid Eyeliner

One of the best liquid eyeliners I have ever used. The brush allows for easy application, the liquid has a good consistency and it lasts for ages! Often after a night out where I can't be bothered to take my makeup off, I find that in the morning when I wake up its still perfect. Its affordable, and fantastic :)
At first, I was a bit skeptical. But now I love it! Its a very light leave in conditioner and has a nice berry like smell but if you use too much I find it smells a bit strange. I use it after straightening (I use a heat defence spray prior to straightening) to tame the frizzies and to give my hair some moisture. I find it great as a restyler - when I fix up the kinks in my hair with the straightener, I spray it about twice through my hair (only use it sparingly) and then straighten and it makes my hair super shiny and feels fantastic. Its very light so it won't weigh down your hair or make it greasy (don't spray liberally on roots). I bought it from strawberry.net, its probably one of the cheaper catwalk products but I'd still highly recommend it :)
My favourite fragrance that I've used. I got it as a gift so i'm not too sure about the price. I was so sad when the bottle finished!
Simple, feminine and classy. Not over the top, something good for every day wear but not if you want to be noticed. Love the smell of it :)
Bold, sexy, and dark. I love this, classic 80's! (not that i was around then anyways but still). I love the fragrances from this time, that my mum used to wear. Pretty pricey, but smells fabulous and lasts long.
