I don't have great hair - thin, and naturally prone to frizz and breakage. I usually have blonde foils as well.
Over the years I have tried a lot of things, and never accept a miracle. But this is hands down the best product I have ever bought for my hair. I use it once a week, and there is a notable difference in the ends. I had to go to the hairdresser this week because my roots were …

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Even Better Refresh Hydrating and Repairing Makeup

I was quite disappointed with this. I was buying something else at Clinique, and they were giving away generous sample pots. The colour match was good, and it looked nice on, with a lovely coverage. It felt good on, and was nice to wear.
I took it away to a conference for four days. By the time I came home I had four or five quite big pimples all along my chin line on both sides. This has …

I have very dry and sensitive skin. I thought this was okay but not marvellous. I prefer the tub, which I use under a normal moisturiser. This one did not seem as effective! It does add some moisture, but it doesn't do enough.
While I liked the idea of the packaging a lot - so much more hygienic - my tube is always getting blocked and I have to keep running hot water through the lid …

I'm really surprised how much I like this! I found it very effective. Within a week, my skin truly was "glowing". I felt much more confident just in BB cream, rather than foundation after the week. I didn't find it harsh or irritating, but I used it mixed with moisturiser. When I tried it with the matching cleanser as well, I found it was too much, and I got a bit red. On …Read more

I think this is an interesting product. For me, it would never replace a normal moisturiser. However, I have had quite a bit of success with layering it under my usual moisturiser, in times of environmental stress or air travel. I have done a few long haul flights in the last year, and I slapped this on generously under a heavy duty moisturiser, and it REALLY helped with dehydration on the plane …Read more

I like this! I live in a really hot and humid climate, and I use it after I put on my makeup, and it seems to take away some of the heat and it just feels really pleasant. I'm not sure it's an essential, but I'm happy to have it!

I'm a big fan! This is a really nice-to-use night cream, which keeps my very dry skin more hydrated than most. It also doesn't make me break out or redden. I've certainly tried a lot more pricey creams which were not as good. I'd 100% buy again - though as others have noted, not so much a fan of the packaging...

This is my favourite concealer. I mainly like a concealer for under eyes, but I will on occasion use it on a pimple or if my nose is a bit red. This works really well every time.
I find it gets lines in it if I don't moisturise well beforehand, so the odd time I have forgotten eye cream, it hasn't been pretty! But otherwise I really like this, and will repurchase.

I really like this moisturiser. I get some of the comments that it is a bit "basic" but it is nonetheless a really lovely feeling cream that doesn't break me out, dry me out or do anything negative! I like using it, it feels good on my skin all day, and I would definitely repurchase.

I'm not a fan - in fact I am quite disappointed with this foundation. The person at the make up counter told me it was a med-full coverage, while I am finding it quite sheer - not much more than my BB cream, to be honest. The color is a good match, but it still seems to make my skin look a bit dull, rather than better-than-usual. Lastly, my very dry skin feels a bit oily and moist by the end …Read more
