I've been buying this product for years, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable, fast drying, light moisturiser. I don't tend to use it during the day (because it doesn't, unfortunately, protect your skin from the sun) but it's a great base for foundation, or when you feel you need a lighter product.

I won't be buying this again. It's not awful, but I did have some problems with it - I had to to use a lot to shift eyeliner or mascara, so got through the bottle very quickly; and I found I had to rub quite hard to remove make-up, so it would leave my skin red and a little sensitive.
I've got psoriasis, and have honestly tried every moisturiser on the market. Bio Oil isn't the worst I've tried, but it's not worth the price. Your skin will feel quite moisturised for a few days after you start using it - and it is easy to apply - but this improvement quickly tails off. It's not terrible, but it doesn't have the best long-term results. (If you're looking for a cheaper version, try Rescue Oil. Almost as effective, and a fraction of the price. They seem to sell it in most pound shops in the UK)

I absolutely love this. I've found tinted moisturisers in the past to be too 'cakey' for everyday, but this gives gorgeous, natural-looking coverage with minimal fuss. It's really hydrating, and has an SPF of 25 - so even my dry skin is left soft and protected all day. Even better, I wear it every day and a tube still lasts me about two months. I've recommended this to everyone I know, definitely try it!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

This is a great primer, but (as a student) paying £14 for it feels excessive. Instead, I've been using MUA's eyeshadow primer, which costs £2.50 from Superdrug. You get a lot for your money, and it works brilliantly - highly recommended if anyone is looking for a cheaper alternative!
Really pleased with this. Smells lovely, removes all the dead skin, and leaves my face feeling really soft. I've been using it for two weeks now, and think that it'll last me quite a while.
I have always had trouble with liquid liner, but this is so easy to use! It's quick to apply, it lasts all night, and it only cost me £6 in Boots. I'm so pleased with this product, and would recommend it to anyone.
I'm usually a big fan of the Body Shop, but this mask caused loads of spots to come up where I've never had them before. I used it twice (just to be sure) and it took about two weeks for my complexion to completely clear up. Definitely won't be buying this again! Such a waste of £10.
I've had pretty bad psoriasis for about ten years, and it's worse on my scalp in winter. After seeing a trichologist (and her treatments working wonders), I decided to give this bar a go to see if I could find a cheaper way of dealing with my skin. I've found Snake Oil to work really well, even when I don't have enough time to leave it in very long. It takes off almost all of the scaly skin on my scalp, and the effects last about two days before it comes back. It's genuinely made such a difference to my quality of life, and is way less time consuming than other things I've tried. I haven't found it difficult at all to remove the oil from my hair, and actually quite like the smell (though it is a little strong!) This bar's a little pricey, and it would be easier to use if it came as an oil, but it's definitely worth a go if you've got a problem scalp!
