I have been battling with my skin for years, hormonal issues have ruined my skin. I had super dry skin, but also have acne. I have super sensitive skin and most skincare products exacerbate at least one of the skin issues.
I have facial redness and mild acne down the middle of my face, and nothing has calmed it down. I've even been to dermatologist.

This moisturiser worked …

Holy grail product!! I buy my rosewater from my local supermarket, in the Indian produce section. It's very cheap. I put it in a spritzer bottle.
I have terrible skin- facial redness, large and numerous pores, dull uneven skin tone, very sensitive and gets irritated easily and it is very dry. I use the rosewater twice a day, I just spritz it all over my face and neck.
Wow. The …

It's a gorgeous milky pink, which gives a very clean, manicured look with a glossy finish. I use 3 coats.

Pros- lasts ages, good brush, easy application, decent drying time
Cons- pricey (but worth it IMO)

Cruelty-free

I bought a nail polish from the Gelly range.

Pros- lasts ages, shiny finish, price
Cons- drying time

I tried a Nails Inc polish in a similar colour, and it chipped within 2 days. The Barry M nail polish lasted for over a week without chipping! And it's so much cheaper than the Nails Inc polish.

I've managed to solve the drying time issues, by …

This is a corrector palette with 5 colours- Peach for dark circles, Purple for yellow tones, Green for redness, Yellow for purple tones and a Brightener. The consistency is creamy.

For the price, which is £4, this product is an absolute bargain and works brilliantly. I've tried loads of corrector palettes and this is the one that's worked the best for me.

It …

Dec/28/2014

I have many skin issues- fine lines, open pores, black heads and minor ice pick scarring. I also have lots of blackheads that no matter what I do (hydrogen peroxide, exfoliating, masks, clay etc) won't budge. I have extremely sensitive skin and didn't want to spend loads on expensive skin treatments so I thought I'd try a home peel.

I wasn't expecting much, but …

I bought Colville Mews as I wanted a nude colour. The colour is OK, (Barry M's Lychee is prettier), but I wasn't impressed it overall. It's not good value at all.

Cons- chipped within 2 days, streaky, not a shiny finish
Pros- good brush

Rosewater has given me new skin!

I bought pure rosewater from Ebay and transferred it to a spray bottle. After I cleanse and tone, I spray some onto my face and pat it into my skin. I also use it to set my foundation.

It's an absolutely gorgeous thing to use on your skin. Honestly, within a week my skin was hydrated, better skin tone and glowing. I can definitely …

Masks - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Besan (Chana, yellow Chickpea, Gram) Flour Mask

Nov/01/2014

This is a great mask for exfoliation and skin brightening. I mix the flour with some lemon juice and leave it on for around 10-15 minutes (do not let the mask dry)

Then rinse in circular motions. My results are- faded scars, brighter and lighter skin, exfoliation and soft, renewed skin.

Only use this one a week as it's very exfoliating.

I bought this years ago and hated it, but now I've learned how to use it. So please don't give up on it if you don't get on with it at first.

I brought number 2. I have very pale skin and very dark circles under my eyes.

I always put moisturiser on under my eyes, then use the peach colour, warming it between my fingers first. Then gently patting it on the …
