Love this product. I buy the 500ml tub and it dors not seem to badly priced. I find it works so much better than anything else my hair just feels amazing. I have blond highlighted hair, frizzy and curly and this is perfect for taming and making it feel nice. Not to heavy as really dont need to use alot. I only use once a week and normal conditioner the rest of the time.
Cleansers -Clarins - One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser
sconzzy 3/26/2013 4:18:00 AM
I love this, large tube lasts ages i have just bought my second tube and am reminded how much i liked this the first time, i have used several other exfoliators between but this is just the best. I love the smell and feel, there is just the right amount of scrub i use it a couple of times a week on the shower instead of my morning cleanser and as an exfoliator. I dont use to remove makeup. Makes my skin much fresher. Will deffinitly buy again in future.
Treatments -Decleor - Hydra Floral Anti-Pollution Moisturising Mask
sconzzy 3/26/2013 4:05:00 AM
I did not like this very much its very thin and not like a mask at all, if i wanted to slather till its white id have to use half a tube. I put it on and i dont think it does anything, its nice and all but just like a moisturiser not like a mask. i wont bother buying again, ill try something else.
Not often a fan of toner, but find myself using this very regularly and have actually used up and had to replace quicker than the cleanser. I have quite sensitive skin but have had no problems, also i find it does not hurt if i go close to my eyes. I like the smell and it makes my skin feel clean but not tight or oily.
Really nice cleanser, does not leave an oily residue, cleans well. Will be buying again.
Moisturizers -Decleor - Hydra Floral Hydrating Comfort Cream

I really like this, I really love the nice jar it looks expensive. I had a 50ml in a decleor set and now bought a 100ml salon size tube from strawberrynet.com was very good value and i will just refill my jar. Feels really nice, has not lasted as long as i hoped but i really like it. I have been using morning and night. Is not to heavy or greasy so I like it, my skin has been pretty good since using decleor.
I like decleor and got a sample of this with a set of other stuff. Even the 1ml sample has lasted ages, its nice. I dont know if this is doing much but my skins quite good lately so maybe it is. It smells nice. I also used decleor clenser toner and moisturiser, have just bought neroli night balm so will probably buy the full size of the oil to use in morning. Expensive though
I was given this as a present from my bf (yep he got me something I actually wanted!). Anyway it is fantastic, I really love the texture and quality. I admit I dont like all the colours but then again its a big play pallet there will be some I dont like. I dont like the dark pink blush, you would need very dark skin for this on me it just looks silly, but the others are great. my favourite section is the one in the middle and I particularly like the shimmery purple one in the top right corner of this pallet. My only complaint with this pallet is the eye shadows migrate into the lipgloss. I dont know if I would need to buy this pallet again but certainly some of the colours I would buy again.
I have two of these lipsticks and disliked and actually chucked them both out. Yes the packaging is sweet but the product is horrible, it all seems so good, but I found both of mine are slippery and kind of sit in globs on top of the lips. They both kept breaking and chipping, just plain messy. For a high end price this is not a high end product. I must say so far Cargo has not really impressed me.
Well I like it, even if others dont. I get seriously dry lips and the skin around my lips all cracks and flakes off. It really hurts but I find that 8 hour cream sooths and smooths my problems. I put it on before bed and my lips are soft in the morning, ill admit its not the onlyproduct that can do this, but all the same it is very very nice. It is pricey but it lasts a really long time, and I like that its use is not restricted to my lips. I have also used the tinted 8 hour lip treatment stick and I like them to. Yes I will be buying again.
Cleansers -Murad - Environmental Shield Essential-C Cleanser

Well, I didnt buy this, I was given it by a friend who found she was to sensitive to use it. I found like others it made my face tingle the first few times I used it. No it does not remove make up but it does clean the face. It certainly doesnt do anything special, and my cheap brand products feel nicer. As for the smell...it smells like a combination of compost and sick, its absolutely disgusting. I did take a look at the price and was horrified, it does not last any longer than other products and certainly doesnt do a better job. And no I wont be buying it again!
Tinted Moisturizer -Stila - Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer
sconzzy 11/24/2009 1:46:00 AM
I really wanted to like this but I couldnt. I didnt feel I got any coverage at all so would always use powder over it, this removed any "illumination". Without powder I think it made me look like Id just been to the gym and had no make up on, I know we want to look like we have no make up on but not to look worse than when we actually dont have any on! Then to add insult to injury it made me break out big time, after a few weeks I stopped using it and my acne cleared up alot, about a month later I thought Id give it another try and within a week I was covered in horrible acne again. So no, never again, its no good for me.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser
sconzzy 11/24/2009 1:34:00 AM
I bought this in the supermarket and it came with the acne scrub free. After four days my my skin was red and blotchy and I found that when I used my normal moisturiser it burned badly. I stopped using the product but over the next few days my skin started to peel and it was clear that this product had chemically burned me, especially on my cheeks and around my mouth. I could only use a very highly moisturising lanolin cream. I am not generally particularly sensitive but would not recommend this to any one who is. I still gave this product 2 stars because it is very cheap, and also I never let anything go to waste and have found it is an ok body wash, hopefully can clear some acne on my chest and back! Ill update to say how that goes. At this stage I dont think id buy it again.
This product is ok, I have been searching for the perfect primer and really hoped this was a solution. There are many good points about this product, it is a lovely consistancy and it does last ages. It does make eyeshadow last a full working day and help prevent creasing. However the price is horrendouse, but it will take a very long time to use up. What I am most dissapointed with is that it doesnt make eyeshadow "POP" it kinda dulls it a little. I would probably buy again for lack of good alternatives, but I will continue to find something better. EDIT: the more I use this and learn to use it well the more I like it! I have increased the rating to a 4 - I wasnt waiting for the product to dry before applying shadow over the tob but now I am and they staying power is AMAZING. However still only 4 stars due to rediculous price (NZ$42!) and no POP!
So I have wanted this eyeshadow for months and months ever since I first swiped it at the Stila counter, Problem is I live in NZ and Stila is Stupid expensive here (NZ$49 for one eyeshadow + gotta buy the pot!) But then i saw the Ultamate set on the internet and so I bought it. It arrived today and the whole 8 peice set is amazing, and Kitten totally lived up to my expectation. However something about it seemed rather familiar... it wasnt until I went to put my new makeup in my make up drawer that I nearly double took when I saw I already had this eyeshadow, EXACTLY the same, I have the Too Faced Totally Toasted duo and the light shade is Kitten, I swiped the two side by side and now i cant tell where one ends and the other begins, even the quality is identicle, both smooth and buttery with the perfect frost. As a comparison, Totally Toasted duo comes out slightly higher in my opinion as the second colour in the duo is a soft brown of equal buttery and frosty quality and is the perfect accompliment. Also I dont like that you have to buy a seperate container for Stila, its expensive enough as is!
