Very disapointed with this product. Its not very moisturising and actually made the skin around my eye area a little swollen, painful and red and blotchy. Would never buy this again and I don't think I will even bother finishing off the rest of the bottle.
love the smell and love how soft and moisturised and clean my skin feels after using this.
This is doing a great job of moisturing my dry stressed winter skin. Used in conjunction with the skin food it feels smoother more hydrated and more even toned. It does smell very strongly of essential oils though which i sometimes find a bit offputting.
I have this in apple glow and I love it, its the best blush i have ever tried. Its easy to use and the colour gives a very natural healthy flush to my cheeks giving an instant healthy glow. Just fantastic!!

I have this in shade number 2 (natural i think) and I love it. It is indeed very sheer but manages to be very moisturising without turning my skin into an oil slick. It creates a healthy luminous effect on my skin whilst looking natural. If I feel like a need a little bit more coverage sometimes i mix it with a little bit of light expert for my cheeks. I've given it a rating of four it would have been a five if it had SPF and was slightly less sheer!

I have about five serums in my cupboard whick i keep trying to finish but I always end up going back to this it makes my skin feel smooth, firmer and yes more even toned (the redness in my cheeks that crops up in winter is gone). Its doing a great job of keeping my skin rehydrated during winter and it doesn't clog my pores.

This would be a great moisturiser for summer as it is very light and leaves my skin feeling quite supple and moisturised and not feeling like a oil slick in the less dry area's but now winter is approaching its just not quite up to the job anymore.
Maybe its because I use products that contain AHA and BHA on a semi regular basis but this mask didn't really do much for my skin. It didn't feel any smoother softer or clearer after use. If you want to use of these types of mask the Ren one is much better. Its quite expensive so I can't really justify adding this to my routine considering the minimal if any benefit it had on my skin.

This one is so close to being fantastic but the start leans just a bit too much towards that fake lemon scent they put in cleaners and bottled iced tea. Once that goes this is a great fresh lemon scent but really don't like the beginning.
Wow it starts off like fairy floss, then almost gets a little medicinal and then ends up as a sweet soft marshmellow scent. This is the bit when i love it most but as soon as it gets to this point poof its gone it only lasts two hours max so it has pretty poor staying power for the cost. I'm not getting any of the floral notes at all . It actually smells a lot like a body lotion sold at a lush shop but way way more expensive Will i purchase a full bottle not sure, maybe a decant you would really need to be in the right mood for the sugary sweetness of this perfume.
Not too keen on this its just too soapy and harsh an orange blossom . Its very clean and fresh but its just like rubbing a bar on soap on my wrist unfortunately. There are orange blossoms out there that i love a lot more.
I love carnal flower and tubereuse criminelle but i found beyond love too heady, suffocating and one dimensional at the beginning . It was just a very fruity sweet tuberose with no green notes to temper it for the first couple of hours. After that though its beautiful like flowers in the garden on a summer night. Its a shame you have to yes or no in relation to buying this product again, its a maybe to a full bottle at the moment, maybe worth a decant!
Just straight vanilla on me no smoke no rum, just vanilla extract. I tried this in summer and as it is more of a comfort scent on me I might try again when the weather gets cooler to see if its more me and has more depth in the winter. Great staying power though 8 hours or more
very green citrus, its smells like the leaves of a citrus tree. It has pretty good staying power its still going three hours and an exercise class later but it starts to develop a harsh soapy drydown on me over time I smell like expensive hotel soap (a problem I always seem to have with bergamot type fragrances). It would be good apart from that but I don't love it enough to justify the cost.
