A nice medium to full coverage foundation. Did not help me that much in terms of oiliness. It is quite thick and hard to spread evenly, needs some time to settle down. Looks pretty nice though. I don't need that amount of coverage, so I will search for something more lightweight that works for my combination oily skin.

I had been looking for a vitamin c to add to my skin care regimen. Going into my thirties with having moved back to Sweden where the cold winters are drying out my skin, after years of living in California and Las Vegas, where I was constantly in the sun (without sunscreen most of the time!). By chance, I asked a sales person at a local beauty shop what she recommended and she went straight to this product and said, "you will love it". Since it was quite inexpensive, I figured I would try it out. This was right before summer began and spring had been really warm and sunny. My first experience was the packaging. It felt like a vitamin c shot: fresh, clean and simple design and bottle. The orange color of the bottle with the pipette was making it easy to dispense the amount of product I wanted. The texture of essence is quite light, clear and a little bit gel like, but fluid. A little goes a long way, so I would first go with a drop and add more. I use it on my face, neck and décolletage after cleansing and before putting a serum and face cream on, in the morning and in the evening. It gives enough moisture, absorbs quickly but leaves your skin feeling moisturized and supple. During summer I would use it alone with a sunscreen, it's like an instant energy boost with the citrusy fragrance and lightness. I am now on my second bottle and am giving it more time to see if it actually is improving my skin. From what I can see, it has bettered my skin texture and I have a nice glow and suppleness to my skin. Really happy with it so far!

This is the first product that I've tried from Lumene's Puhdas (purity) line, aimed at combination/oily skin. I use a AHA peel once or twice a week (currently the Ordinary's AHA 30% + BHA 2% mask) so I just want a pretty straightforward physical peel to use every now and then. This one certainly does the trick. It has a pretty good amount of "scrubbiness", but it's not too abrasive. My skin looks and feels brighter after use, yet it doesn't feel too dry. But to be fair, I can get those same results from numerous other drugstore peeling products. I've used Formula 10.0.6's One smooth operator scrub before and I think I like it more. It has a similar feel and gives slightly better visible results, while at the same time being cheaper. The Formula one is 99SEK (around $11) for a 100ml bottle, while this one is 125SEK (around $14) for only 75ml. + Cruelty free+ Vegan+ Effective but not too abrasive+ Like all Lumene skincare nowadays, the design is very sleek and attractive to me- Small bottle- Not that cheap for being a drugstore brand

I have this in the shade On the Beach, and it's probably one of my favorite nail polishes of all time. It's the perfect light pink/kind of a nude color, that makes your nails look really natural but nice. The quality is good, it dries quickly and lasts long, and I don't think the price is bad. I know the small bottle is a problem for some people, but I like it since I don't use nail polish that often.

Best ever BB cream. Been using it for years. I can't find it anywhere now, though.
