I bought this concealer, because it was recommended to me by a friend for my undereye circles. And for a price of less than 5$ is certainly was a no brainer to try this one out. It's a simple pallet like any other with three color skintones, a pink salmon color and a green minty color. The pink went perfect for under my eyes and the middle skintone mixed with the darker matched my skintone perfectly. Coverage was decent enough, but I wasn't completely satisfied. It looked too shiny under my eyes in the end. The next morning I also had three big painful blemishes smiling at me, where I had put the green.
Eye Makeup Remover -Clinique - Take The Day Off Eye Makeup Remover

For a simple makeup remover, judging from the ingredients, it's quite an expensive one. It does the job nonetheless, but not any better than a regular drugstore brand for half the price. This tonic feels slightly more like a toner and I dislike the idea of putting alcohol on my face. I didn't have any allergic reaction, but did have a slight tingly sensation I normally don't have with a makeup remover. So there's better out there for a more reasonable price.
My favorite deodorant to date. Nothing gives me a longer fresh feeling with guaranteed no perspiration no matter how warm it is outside.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 100% Pure Shea Butter

At first this gave me great results on my skin. I used it as both a moisturizer and cleanser. For 2 weeks it did a great job at clearing my skin up. I started using it everywhere on my body after that. How wrong I was. Just after 4 weeks of using it my skin, mostly on my body, started breaking out like crazy. I never had body acne until I started this. It took me an awful long while before I got that stuff out of my system. Never again.
Oh lord I knew there had to be a solution. I can't stand chemicals on my face and all the cleansers I've ever tried were too harsh, drying, irritating and pore clogging so I couldn't properly take care of my skin. These days are over now. I'm using organic honey and my face is glowing. It's just amazing how good it looks. I haven't had a single pimple since I've been using honey. I'm sold
For me it's a huge relief that Burt Bees has recently come available in my country. I thought I could never find a lipbalm that did not dry out my skin. And here it is. A nice texture, similar to all balms and a really nice sweet honey scent.
At first I was really enthusiastic about this product. It gave me the smooth coverage I wanted of a tinted moisturizer and just the right color. But then it broke me out like never before. It contains one of the worst comedogenic ingredients. On a scale from 1 to 5 Cetyl Alcohol 2 Stearic Acid 2 Polyglyceryl-3-Diisostearate 4 I'm never geting near MAC again. I'm done with them.
Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear LIGHT Foundation SPF10

This is one of the few foundations that does not break me out and does not settle in my pores. However, the lightest color is still too dark for me. Which is a real shame for me. You do need a makeup remover for waterproof makeup to completely clean your skin! Otherwise you do have the inevitable result of clogged pores.

Liquid -Bobbi Brown - Natural Finish- Long Lasting Foundation SPF 15 [DISCONTINUED]

This product contains at least 4 comedogenic ingredients: Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Myristic Acid and Sodium Chloride. I won't recommend it at all to anyone with acne prone skin.
I went to MAC today because I was really curious for that new foundation. It was one huge disappointment. The texture is very thick and feels heavy on my skin. It looks so fake. If you can't get full coverage with this one I don't think there's anything left. So far it didn't break me out, but it settled into my pores and lines in a matter of minutes. It's good I tried it in the store and didn't buy it.
I read zeynepd's review and I definitely agree with the Ange ou Demon le Secret comparison. It's why I loved this scent so much, because AoD is my favorite. I liked the peach and rose in this perfume a lot and the package is just adorable. It's very pretty on my desk as decoration too :3
I bought this when I first started using masks. It's a terrible product. It didn't help my acne at the time, I suspect it worsened after I used the mask and it was too drying for my skin. I did notice the clay was better for my skin, but not in this brand (I use a natural french clay instead now). Funny story is that my mother uses it now on the horses in case she needs to cover up a wound. I think it deserves top marks for that, but as a skincare product for humans I find it unsuitable and there are cheaper and more effective alternatives.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Moroccan Rose Body Butter

The thing I like with this body butter, is that unlike all the other types TBS has is that it's smell is less chemical and more subtle. I really love the slight rosy smell and I often just use it around places I'd put perfume. As for moisturizing properties it's average. I prefer to use unscented creams and lotions on places that need moisture, but that's just me.
Shampoo -John Frieda - Sheer Blonde Highlighting Shampoo

I bought this product not with the intention to make my hair any lighter, rather it had the ingredients that are beneficial for oily hair. I really liked the fragrance it surely wasn't too strong. It foams nice and easily and my hair feels fresh and silky after washing. It definitely isn't too harsh. As well as it really works for my oily hair. It gives me nice volume and keeps my hair good for at least two days. I definitely recommend this product for blond haired gals with oily hair. Only downside it's fairly expensive for a shampoo
