Used to really like some of their skincare in my 20's like Vanishing Cream or Cosmetic Lad. Starting with 30 their stuff just didn't cut it anymore and realistically it can't. There's nothing anti ageing in there, nothing that provides deep hydration, no decent exfoliation (apart from salt, lemon juice, maize flour etc), no sunscreen. If you're young and spotty you're probably gonna like Mask of Magnaminty or smth like that, but by 25 or 30 (at the latest!) do yourself a favour get yourself a retinol, a hyaluronic, a C serum, and a good chemical exfoliant. Trust me, all the cocoa butter, lemon juice, essential oil mixtures do not compare. And the high ammounts of fragrance (whether natural or synthetic) and SLS may sensitize your skin over time (it did mine). The shower gels and shampoos are ridiculously drying, the bath bombs are fussy to store, inconsistent in quality and crumble all over the place. The bubble baths turn to rocks now if you don't use them straight away. I did like their hair treatments though! In the last 10 years the ethics of the company also changed drastically: products are bulked up with CORN FLOUR, perfumes now contain WATER, prices are ever increasing while the formulas don't change and the sizes get smaller. Good classic products were discontinued to make way for gimmicky crap like dusting powder in a cocoa butter case or naked foundation. If something comes back then in an over hyped super small batch, at double the price and you're supposed to wake up 4 hours early or schedule your day around the time it gets put online... Long story short if you're young and greasy and looking for a scrub or mask to dry the s### out of you, this is the place for you :) For everyone else, there are tons of better products and better companies out there at better prices.
