This was the first curl activator I ever tried, and it brought out curls I never knew existed! I've tried lots of other curl products but always come back to this one; for the price it really can't be beat. I have long, thick type 2c/3a hair (black/Indian mix) that is extremely frizzy and find that the weight of this product suits it quite well - it brings out my curls nicely without …Read more

I just can't get on with Face and Body for the face, as much as I want to. My skin is pretty dry, but even I find it to be too runny and wet looking with little coverage. Its just a bit pointless isn't it? Cheap though.

As much as I want to like this foundation, it's just not for me. It just makes me look dull and cakey, and I don't like the fact that it doesn't come with a pump. There are plenty of other matte, full coverage foundations that can still work on my dry skin, but this ain't one of them. Issa no from me.

This is just as effective as the Clinique balm, albeit a slightly softer formula and slightly easier to wash off. These differences are pretty negligible however and do not make it worth the extra 60% or so in price. Just get the Clinique one, it's a smarter choice.

This is my favourite precleanse product but why. is. it. so. expensive?! It does a great job of getting rid of the heaviest of makeup quickly and easily and the packaging is super handy and hygienic compared to cleansing balms in tubs, but I just can't give it five stars because of the price. The Clinique cleansing balm is very nearly as good (if this is a 10, that is an 8.5), half the …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

This is a good cleansing balm for sure - it removes a full face with no problem and does good job with waterproof eyeliner and mascara without too much rubbing. There are two reasons why I can't give it five stars though - the first is that it's just not quiiiite as good as the Dermalogica Precleanse balm, which really breaks down waterproof mascara like it's nothing, and the …Read more

This moisturiser is pretty much perfect if you have skin that is acne prone but also dry and flaky in parts. This was recommended to me by my dermatologist when I had cystic hormonal acne and honestly it was a godsend. I like the thickness of it; it felt rich and soothing on the dryness, healing it without worsening my acne, and leaving my skin feeling soft and hydrated. It's fine to wear …Read more

This is a complexion product, and comes in one light af colour... one. ONE. In 2019. My housemate had this and to be honest it is an amazing product, but just does not show up on my NC42 skin. Nul points for racism, Chanel.

Excuse me? This is a bad b*tch mascara!!! It's INSANE that this doesn't have better reviews! Listen, BTS is what you put on when you're about to go out and steal someone's man - it gives you the best thick, full, long, fluttery, 'take me now' lashes, PERIOD. And rest assured, our good waterproof sis does not flake, smudge or budge no matter what activities you may …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - Roller Lash Mascara

This is a great, fairly natural looking day to day mascara. As everyone has said it won't give you huge, fluffy looking lashes, but does lengthen and easily provides the best separation of any mascara I've tried (there have been many) - the wand is honestly exceptional. I think it really comes into its own on simpler eye looks (no eyeliner just eyeshadow, or nothing) where you want your …Read more
