I have dry/blemish prone skin and this is a life saver face moisturiser! It makes my skin feel soft and smooth all day and is great for under my makeup. It is not greasy at all and absorbs straight away. I have tried a lot of other more expensive brands which claim to do a lot but never live up to the claims. This is much cheaper and I love that it doesn't contain parabens or harsh chemicals. I will definitely repurchase this when I run out.

I have very pale, dry and blemished skin and while I do like the formula and the way it feels on my skin the colour is far too dark for me and doesn't blend with my natural skin tone. I only use this mixed in with my foundation which is lighter so it adjusts the colour. I would not purchase this again as I can't wear it on its own whereas I can wear something like the Holika Holika Petit BB range or Missha perfect cover alone and these are much cheaper. Very moisturising and dewy but the colour isn't right for me.
This is a great multi use product. I use it all over my body when I get out of the bath/shower while my skin is still wet and just let it air dry. It makes my skin SO smooth and soft and this lasts until my next bath/shower! I also use it for makeup removal- on my eyes and my face. I think when using it on my eyes it blurs my vision and becomes a little uncomfortable but it removes stubborn eye makeup great. I also recently started using this to cleanse my face with or without makeup. To take off my face makeup I pour a bit into my hands then rub it all over my face. I then take a clean wash cloth soaked with hot water then wipe away the oil and makeup and my face feels so soft and clean afterwards. I also do it sometimes in the morning if my skin is a bit flaky. I have only been doing this for a few days but my face is looking so much clearer and smoother (I have dry/blemished skin). I have previously used the olive oil cleansing method but I think this may be better!

I suffer from extremely dry skin and I use this for foundation primer, night moisturiser, cleanser and eye make up remover and it works wonders. To clean and brighten my skin.. I use this every morning and night, I massage it into my (makeupfree) face for a few minutes.. then press a hot wash cloth to it for a few more, then just wipe the rest away. It leaves my skin looking so much brighter and smoother! It also seems to exfoliate flakey bits too, AND the blackheads on my nose have shrank. Also a small amount when used as a primer makes my foundation/bb cream look so dewy and natural, even after powder.. and it stays perfect all day!! I will never waste my money on expensive primers again that do not work!

I use this every day either mixed with a foundation for extra staying power or on its own. The colour may look a little too dark for some pale people when you squeeze it out, but I find it adjusts to my skin tone when I apply it. I love how I don't even need to use a brush for this, it goes on just like a moisturiser but gives full and smooth coverage! I do not even need concealer to cover blemishes or under the eyes. I don't always need powder either, this gives a really nice natural glowy complexion, and it it matches my skin tone perfectly. You don't even need to use that much and it's cheap, I will definitely be buying again.
I use this every night to take off my face makeup, this isn't effective for me to remove eye makeup so I use a baby wipe for that. I read that this product helped some people with acne and blemishes but unfortunately I can't say the same. My skin does feel a lot smoother and cleaner though. I rub it all over my dry face and then add a bit of water and repeat, then fully rinse off. This removes my makeup quickly and effectively, I love how I don't have to use a cream cleanser then a face wash, this does everything in one step. A little disappointing that it hasn't done anything to my blemishes but I would definitely buy a cleansing oil again to remove my makeup.
This is one of my favourite highlighters. I like how it just gives a glow rather than a glittery sparkle. Also I love that it's a liquid rather than a powder, it just makes my skin glow really subtly. I like to buy the sample sizes from ebay because it's much cheaper and they still last a long time.
I use this before blow drying or leaving to dry naturally and it really makes a difference to my hair. I get no frizz, just soft and shiny hair. It smells delicious and you only need a small amount. It seems to make blow drying quicker.

This is the best deep conditioner I have ever used!! I have bleached hair that can get quite dry especially after colouring. I leave on after shampooing for 45mins to an hour around twice a month. It leaves my hair feeling super soft and shiny for weeks! I have read reviews saying this was hard to rinse out and left hair greasy, but I didn't experience this. I love that it's organic and the smell is lovely. Oh and it's very cheap!
I got this in Siberia. Firstly I love how light the colour is, and as a pale person that's hard to come across. However I don't like to use this alone as it looks quite yellow on my skin, and it doesn't cover spots and redness. And although I thought at first this was moisturizing, it made my skin look flaky! I like to use this to adjust the colour of other foundations like Estee Lauder Double Wear. It also adds a little glow to what would usually be a matte foundation. The packaging is dumb too, the lid never stays on and the foundation goes everywhere even if you keep in the box. Also it's way too expensive for what it is! I would only buy this again because of the colour to adjust darker foundations.
