Money down the drain! :-( Spider-leg-lashes was what I saw after applying this crap. Will throw away and NOT repurchase....
I have the Repairing Day Lotion only. However, since I do not wash my face in the morning, I only use it at night... I simply love this product! I keeps my sensitive normal to dry skin clear all through the humid and warm summer months, when my regular moisturizer gets too heavy. In winter, though, I feel it is not enough on its own to keep my skin hydrated, but I use it more as a treatment under my other moisturiser in areas I feel I need it (nose, chin, jawline & between eyebrows) and it does its job that way too! Very affordable and good value for money, as well. Packaging could be more glamourous, but hey, if it does the job - I don't really care. Have repurchased three times now and will definately do it again!

Crappy product. Made my eyelashes look short and cropped, rather than long and with volume... Flaked away after a few hours as well.

Best eyeshadow primer I have tried. Keeps even my cheapest products from creasing and really makes the colours pop! Minus for bad packaging. Allthough sweet, it is hard get all product out in the end.

Makes a perfect blow-drying product when I want to blow out my wavy page. Adds shine and a bit of texture/volume, without feeling heavy one bit! Love the smell, too.
Crappy product. All I have to say, really. The brush is bad, and the formula makes my eyes water.
This is one of the staples in my makeup bag. The only concealer I keep buying. Have used it since 2004 and is still very satisfied with the result! Nowadays, it has an added loose powder, which is fine and translucent and sets your makeup very well, but it is the two types of concealers that I really love! The pinkish one in a creamy consistency covers any dark cirkles with ease, and the one with yellow undertones is perfect for covering any spots/blemishes/redness around your nose and mouth. I really recommend this product!

I do like this primer, but I find it does not really do the job of moisturizing and acting as a canvas for my foundation - not depending on if i use MAC Face & Body or Laura Mercier TM. But it does not break me out and makes the makeup a bit more sweat-resistant in summer parties, anyway...
To be honest, this foundation breaks me out if I wear it repeatedly for weeks, but when I stick to 2-3 times a week - my skin is fine. Gives the appearance of dewy, perfect skin that is not caked up by tons of face makeup. Great for photography. I think it looks great through the day, too. Hard to get off brushes, so I tend to use disposable makeup sponges or my fingers for this one. I wear the shade N2, which comes off a bit darker from the bottle than my other foundations, but I don't mind - as it blends beautifully with my natural skin tone. Good value for money, too!
Love the smell of this, and the fact that it makes my wavy blonde page full and shiny is not bad either :-) I just love this product. Hair can feel a bit coarse after rinsing, but the conditioner makes it soft and managable.
I think this shampoo is fine. But I have tried better - both from Redken and from other brands. Can leave my hair static. Not particularly fond of the smell, either...

I like this shampoo and conditioner. Really hydrates my dryish blonde waves. However, I find it can get a bit heavy, which is fine in the wintertime when I am trying to combat frizz, but I wouldn't use this in spring or summer. Smells really nice and lasts forever.
Masks -Origins - Dr. Weil Mega Mushroom Skin-Calming Face Mask

Best mask I ever tried. Heals break outs over night. Soothing for red areas of sensitive skin, or sunburnt skin, or spots, or... Moisturizes just perfectly for my sensitive dry/combination skin. Smells like rotten forest, though. :-) And the price could definately be improved on.. But it's totally worth it!
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

I love this TM! I have it in Porcelain, which is a perfect colour match for my skin, except for in summer (but then I do not use TM anyway..). I do not feel it breaks me out. Gets better and better through the day. Can be layered. Not very moisturizing in itself, though, so I would never skip my regular day cream under it.
The cleanser I have been using for my summer skin, when my winter dry and sensitive skin turns combination... I really like the foamy texture and the clean smell. The only minus is it can leave some parts of my face a bit dry and with a hard-soap-washed feel. But as I use toner (Origins United State) and moisturizer afterwards, I really never feel it dries me out. Nor have this product ever made me break out, which is very nice as it tends to do so if I put anything stronger than products for sensitive skin on my face. Lasts forever, too.
