Been using this foundation for years and loved it. Half way trough my last pot I am ordering a new batch a some 3 months ago: I am happy that now the sifters have a cover , the white caps nowadays have the lily Lolo Logo instead of the old design but that is not a tragedy. However I detect a slight change in the formula : this stuff does not cover as well anymore, remains powdery longer on the face and eventually it won‘t befriend my skin and work with it, is not creamy anymore. I go back to using my older powder jar some days, then back to the new jar in disbelief and I think is defiantly a change there that I do not approve with. Have I gone mad, anyone else noticed this???????? Maybe I got a bad batch or something????
Strange high note of lavender, spicy pepper leaving a long lasting trail of white oudh behind. Though white oudh does not really exist in reality to my knowledge, it seems to be popular among Arabs and is relatively cheep, is like a sharp chemical medicinal oudh with it’s animalistic personality removed .
My husband smelled this on me and said “that smells like pink blah” !So many thing wrong with this fragrance: pink, fruity and uninspired and then there’s this naked woman in the advertising made to look really childish which is highly inappropriate for a perfume that has been around since 1920’s, I mean who are they trying to sell it to? This perfume makes me think that is made by Gary Glitter for Barbie while on a trip in Thailand

Wow the eucalyptus smell is really strong! Added to the bath water when I need a soak it foams beautifully and really clears the breathing after a long smoggy day in a city. Most importantly it does not dry the skin which is surprising for something that foams that much!

This is the perfect morning wash, is really invigorating and smells really strong of peppermint. A shower or a bath with this and I am wide awake, I just can’t use it before I got to bed in a million years. Also this makes a good summer wash as is so refreshing.
I am still quite amazed on haw well this can hide blemishes and general red skin irritations. I only tried it because of the inexpensive samples this company offers for sale at £0.75, otherwise I would of never bough the full size just for the sake of trying it. I have got 2 cancealer brushes to apply it with: one being from Lily Lolo own brand which is perfect for covering larger areas and also another small cheap precision brush which it indispensable when it come to small face imperfections that only need a little bit of touch up. I start applying Blush Away before my mineral foundation, usually the cancealer might be buffed away partially with the foundation so I have to make sure that when I am layering my foundation I must always add another layer of cancealer in between making sure the last layer is foundation so the green gets covered, so basically I am layering this product so I can get the best out of it this away I manage to camouflage anything red on the skin to perfection leaving no suspicion that something be hading underneath.
This product is an absolute miracle! It makes my lashes so great like no other expensive mascara could ever do. I can use this for an soft eyelash effect up to long spidery lashes effect. This is the only mascara that I can use for my lower lashes because it will not smudge during the day. It never clumps my lashes either. I have used organic and natural mascaras in the past that have irritated my eyes a bit at times but this cake mascara has never let me down. I am not buying conventional mascara ever again. Some bad points could only arise if someone does not have a good sturdy hand to apply it. Also I could do with it being made entirely off natural organic ingredients and free of parabens.
