I have thick blonde hair that I highlight every 6 weeks so it is quite damaged! This product is amazing! I use it as a normal conditioner, and leave it on for a few minutes in the shower. Really improved my hair, I recomend to anyone with damaged or course thick hair!
Great simple moisturizer for people with normal or oily skin. Defintely don't use if you have dry skin as this is a very light moisturizer. For AUD 8 for a bottle I will be repurchasing. I had no problems with burning as others described.

I don't like this lip balm, it doesn't seem to help my dry lips. I also don't like the way it looks, if you put too much on you get a white film over your lips and it is quite shiny which I hate in a lip balm. I'm not surprised I don't like it, I've never liked any of the body shop lip balms and its pretty expensive.
I've had my pot of this powder for 9 months and its almost finished, so it lasts quite awhile. This has become a staple product that I use everyday. I use a small amount of liquid foundation first (MAC) to cover any redness or blemishes, and then use the mineral cover over the top. I have quite oily skin so I do have to use a pressed powder during the day to keep my skin looking matt but this has always been the case for my skin. The colour match is good, for nights out I just use extra for a better coverage, but you do need to be careful as with any product - too much looks cakey. I do recommend this product.
This foundation is very light coverage (watery consistency), but you can build it up with a few layers. I found the colour match great, no problem. I have oily skin so I definitely need to set it with a powder. The bottle is very big, 120mls so for AUD60, it works out as cheap as the standard supermarket brands maybelline etc. Bottle lasts ages! Only negatives, the liquid separates after a few months and you need to shake it well each time you use to combine it again. Also both bottles I have had have always leaked in the cap. I would purchase again.
In Australia these straighteners retail for AUS$330 - they are a very expensive product! I am glad I spent the money, I don't think there is a better straightener on the market. The original one I purchased, probably 4 years ago, stopped working after about 6 months, but under warranty was replaced by GHD. I've had no problems with the replacement and have had it for several years now. I would be wary about purchasing on the internet as there are a lot of fakes and you don't get the GHD warranty, I definitely recommend buying from a trusted retailer as it is a expensive purchase! Great product!

I purchased this perfume when I was 17 and I loved it. I recently (6 years later) pulled the bottle out again and sprayed it on - I now cannot stand it! It is super sweet, smells like sugar / cupcakes and really sickly. It's really strong you can smell it as soon as a person walks into a room while wearing it. I think its definitely a perfume for teenagers, and I now prefer more classic scents. The bottle is very cute though.
A standard powder for the $14 price tag, nothing amazing but does the job. Colours tend to be on the orange side so you need to make sure you match your skin as well as possible. If you use to much it gets cakey on your face, and the puff which it comes with is really bad quality (same as all the other maybelline powders I've tried). I apply it with a powder blush and it looks much better. I would repurchase simply for the reasonable price.
I absolutely love this perfume, I also get so many compliments while wearing it. I think it's a classic perfume, and its become my daily perfume I feel strange if I forget to wear it! Definitely recommend!
Fantastic product, and at only AUD$8 a bottle its such good value. I use this twice a week after cleansing, it makes my skin really soft and feel really clear and clean. Definitely a favourite, and it's become a staple beauty product for me.
I feel mixed about this foundation. The pros are it's good for my oily skin, it seems to stay on throughout the day with the help of powder, good coverage and it has SPF. The cons if you use a lot it looks cakey (I use very small amount), hard to blend, colours very orange and it sits in pores so you have to 'work' it back into the skin during the day. Overall I won't be purchasing again but I am finishing the bottle I have as it isn't terrible.
Best mascara ever! I've tried expensive mascaras but even none of them compare! So cheap at $16, and has a really good brush that makes your lashes look so full. I've been only buying this mascara for years now, and I won't stop. Only negative I used to be able to buy it in dark brown but haven't been able to for ages, maybe its discontinued in that shade?
This product made my skin break out terribly! I continued to use it for 2 weeks thinking it just might be my skin adjusting to a new product but I had to stop using it. There are a lot of good reviews so maybe it just wasn't suited to my sensitive combination skin. On the plus side I loved the way you only had to use a tiny amount and it foamed up so generously, it made my skin feel super clean.
I don't understand the hype about this product. I tried using it as a primer under foundation but I found it just made my skin look shiny (which I hate) and it didn't help hold my makeup as I was still having to powder to get rid of the shine. As a mask it was ok, didn't do anything great for my skn. It is expensive and I still have a basically full tube at home as I haven't bothered using it again after the first week.
Extremely expensive product! I used it for dry lips, its a really intensive moisturiser I used it on my cracked heels and it worked amazingly! I wouldn't use it on my face as I think it would be way to oily. The smell doesn't bother me. Overall I won't be buying again at $40 a bottle it's definitely not worth it!
