Maybe I'm just an old scaly lizard woman but this foundation is AWFUL on me. It clings to patches of dry skin both known and unknown... and just makes me look like I don't know how to put makeup on. I mean, I may as well put a sign around my neck saying LOOK AT MY FOUNDATION. It doesn't blend and it looks like clay. And yes I moisturise and prime first. I give it half a star each …Read more

Cleansers - NIVEA - Refreshing Cleansing Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

I've been using this off and on for many years. It reminds me of Neutrogena Extra Gentle cleansing lotion but I got on to this one because it is cheaper. It's under AUD$10 here. It does have that Nivea scent - which I don't mind and it is not bothersome on my sensitive skin. No issues with breakouts either and I am acne-prone. I mainly like using it as a morning cleanser in winter …Read more

Moisturizers - Simple - Water Boost Hydrating Gel Cream

"No harsh chemicals that can upset your skin" says the box. Well sorry, Simple, but my skin WAS upset by this product. Within hours of application, my skin felt prickly and I could see little tiny red bumps forming. Thankfully it did not get worse and I have not used it since. I have combination, sensitive, acne prone skin and normally appreciate a good gel-cream. This is not a good …Read more

Conditioner - L'Oreal Paris - ELVIVE Smooth Intense Smoothing Conditioner

I've been trying this one out for the past week or so. I have fine hair, oily scalp, which is prone to tangles and a small amount of frizz. I usually buy Pantene or Dove because they're thick and siliconey (which makes combing easier) but thought I'd try this. It's a little thinner than I'm used to but it seems to do a good job. I apply to lengths/ends only. It reduces my …Read more

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - Elvive shampoo for coloured or highlighted hair

I have fine hair prone to an oily scalp. I've been buying this on and off for many years. It's a terrific cleanser for my hair type which leaves my hair clean but not too dry. I don't think this will suit a dry scalp. I don't know why this is pictured as a gold bottle. It's in a red bottle. Even when my hair is not coloured, I continue to buy this one! It's cheap but …Read more

Mascara - essence - I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara

Jan/24/2018

I usually like mascaras with this type of brush but man oh man this was clump city for me. The formula is quite wet and too hard to work with. There was too much on the brush every time, so it was hard to get that nice lash separation that these brushes offer. I tried using this by blotting in a tissue first, but a mascara should not require this much effort to use. Won't be buying this one …Read more

Pressed Powders - Unlisted Brand - Savvy by DB - pressed powder

I’ve repurchased this several times. It’s cheap and offers light, natural coverage. I’m fair so the lightest shade works really well for me. It’s good with oil control. So much so that as my skin gets a bit drier with age, I do find that I need to make sure I moisturise enough beforehand. I apply with a flocked sponge I got from Alima years ago. I just pat it on. It looks powdery at first but it …Read more

Conditioner - OGX - Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner

Aug/13/2015

This stuff is ridiculously overpriced in Australia. I grabbed a bottle of this conditioner on sale. I love coconut scented things! Unfortunately this is where my praise ends. I have long, fine hair which is not particularly problematic except that it can tangle easily. The description made this conditioner sound perfect for my hair type but I was really disappointed. It simply does not detangle …Read more

I have the Total Care Conditioner so this is a review for that product. My hair is long, fine and prone to tangles. It is not particularly dry. I find this conditioner just ok. It is not the worst I've tried but I just wish it offered a tiny bit more slip to my hair so I could comb it easier. Scent is pleasant. I probably won't repurchase. Thumbs up for the practical packaging which has …Read more

Add me to the list of people not particularly impressed by this product. I was excited to try it but found it just did not seem to do much. It neither bothered nor benefited my skin. Someone described the texture as similar to "personal lubricant" - this is accurate. LOL! It absorbs fast which is great, allowing you to add moisturiser over the top. You should not wear a hyaluronic acid …Read more
