For reference, my skin tone match is MAC NC40, combo/oily skin and in my 30's, I have this in Tan.

I have very oily skin around my T zone, whilst this product is oil free it does not control oil or stay matte on me. I am usually using blotting tissues within 2-3hrs of application, especially now since it's in the middle of the hot Australian summer. I find I have to use a …

I have been using this on my back daily to fade pigmentation from acne scars for 5 months now and up to my 8th tube. My back is definitely brighter and even toned, whilst this has not gotten rid of the more deeply pigmented scars this has definitely faded them and has approved the overall appearance of my back. I am no longer afraid to wear backless dresses.

I use a exfoliating …

I got this free as part of a Lóreal promotion, OMG this stuff smells nasty! I have only used it once so I can't give a proper review on the acutal performance of the spray. The only positive thing about the spray is the packaging, I binned my bottle as I could not get past the nasty rotten smell.

My HG red, I have Russian red but its too drying on my lips. This not as dry as Russian red and it has more of a pink undertone and nice sheen compared to Russian red and is more flattering on me compared to Russian red. Mac red works well with my mixed Chinese and European light/olive skin and jet black hair. Only thing is it expensive at $36 Australian a pop. Ladies be warned u need a good …Read more

Pros: All natural no talc etc.. easy to uses, contains spf 15 sheer to medium coverage, looks natural, perfect if you do not have oily skin. Has not irritated my sensitive skin or caused any break outs, did not irritate my skin after fractional laser therapy either.

Cons: If you have oily skin it will make you like even more oily due to the light reflecting pigments and its does not …

I am half Chinese and European and its impossible to find foundation that matches my skin colour as I have light/medium olive european tone, whilst shade 04 neutral does not match 100% it is the closest match I have found and besides it makes my skin look amazing! I have combo skin with a oily t zone but is normal everywhere else however this leaves my skin looking dewy not oily, however when …Read more

I love this product, but it does does some practice to get to avoid streaking. Personally I would not recomend this for someone who has very pale skin. I noticed to get the best results you need to exfoliate and wait at least 30mins after your shower before applying the cream and blend it evenly on your skin then wait about 5-10 mins for it to absorb. Personally I like to apply it the night …Read more

This is my HG scrub, I love it! Personally I find it mild enough to use everyday without it being too harsh on my skin (as long as I dont excessivley scrub my face). My white heads have gone, my skin is smoother. Packaging is easy to use, product isn't super dirt cheap but for $9.90 AUD I cant complain this scrub works better then my collection of high end products for 1/5 the price!

I was recommended this product by a hairdresser and my freinds raved on about how good it was so I bought it. It wasn't too pricey, the bottle leaksif it is not left upright and a little goes a long way. For me this product didnt work, I tried it on dry and wet hair, I tried different ways of using it but for me it left my hair with a film and it didnt feel as though my hair absorbed it …Read more

I love it, works better then other body moisturizer and multi purpose product out there ! It's dirt cheap and value for money, I paid about $10 (Australian) for it and is comes in 250mls + a little goes a long way. The down side would be the packaging is ok but could be better, I find the bottle leaks , if I travel with it I just put it in a zip lock sandwhich bag and the problem is solved …Read more
