This is for very young, healthy and preferably tanned skin I think, if any of that is you, then it will probably look beautifully reflective, girly and fun. For me it's a pass: the amount of gold reflective shimmer set in a candy pink/orange is not at all flattering and I feel faintly ridiculous on me.

Reading the reviews was so tempted to try this. I am looking for a good cruelty free foundation. It contains parabens. 'nough said. Hate the way Liz Earle makes out that she is oh so natural when she is anything but.

This has replaced my former favourite sunscreens. I have liked LRPs Anthelios (clogged pores a little), Biotherms (but could only get spf15 - no good for summer),Nivea was discontinued, and other ones were just rubbish for my sensitive, break out prone, easily congested skin. I used it all through the wonderful summer we had last year and it performed excellently. It comes in a portable flat …Read more

Disregard comments saying this does anything of any significance. It really doesn't. It's relatively light and moisturising. It is non irritating and has no discernible fragrance. These factors make it ok I suppose but it's no anti aging product. I really wanted this after reading the positive reviews. I was disappointed in it and hardly ever use it. I will use it up but its made …Read more

This is perfection in a mascara. It does everything you want a mascara to do (so it's bound to be limited/ messed with/ discontinued!)... It gives you the lashes you want...end of. Stays on all day, doesn't smudge, holds a curl, defines that black fringe to beautifully define your eyes. Unless you like that over the top tacky clumpy look I can't imagine anyone not liking this. I am …Read more

I did not find this product as effective as I hoped it would be. The smell reeks of cigarettes. It stays very sticky on your face so I sometimes add bentonite clay to it. It's quite unremarkable. It's just something else in my arsenal that I use in tandem with other products because by itself it doesn't do a great deal.

This is my second favourite foundation. Unlike its predecessor, the flawless forever which broke me out this seemed to actually improve my skin. It caused no problems for my difficult hypersensitive to ingredients skin. I get cosmetic acne with most products but I know what I'm looking for now so that helps. This is a lovely velvety medium finish which has good longevity. My single gripe was …Read more

I have tried a very large number of foundations across the whole price spectrum. I suffer from cosmetic acne. As my skin is sensitized to so many ingredients I struggle to find something that doesn't lead to problems.The main culprits for me I have discovered are the products containing coconut derived ingredients. I suspect this is the problem for a lot of people but they just don't …Read more

This gives a very matt look. It looks great with Laura Mercier silk foundation. Creates perfection in fact. The idea of the double duty formula sounds great. Unfortunately for me it blocked my pores terribly and gave me spots. I have to agree about the packaging too. Its incredibly difficult to squeeze the hard plastic tube.
