Pros:
very moisturising - excellent for those of us who are hitting our 30s (or above)
very emolient which is great for dry skin with first fine lines
I can feel it work until the end of the day - the skin around my eyes feels super fresh after I apply it and continues feeling supple and refreshed until the end of the day

Cons
It leaves an oily film - although I …

This is The best cleanser I have ever come across.

Pros: It's one of the most thorough and effective cleansers I have ever used. At the same time, it's one of the most (if not The Most) gentle one. It leaves your pores thoroughly cleaned and seems to have a brightening effect too. I'm super oily, dehydrated and sensitive. This cleanser doesn't irritate me in any way …

Excellent moisturiser for oily-combination skin, better than many on the market (and I've tried a good few, including high end products).

Pros: Excellent value for money. Unlike many moisturisers targetted towards oily-combo skin, this one does deliver hydration while mattyfying your skin at the same time. What is more, I feel that even tough the mattifying effect doesn't …

Treatments (Face) - Estée Lauder - Clear Difference Advanced Blemish Serum

Nov/01/2016

Pros: Feels very light on the skin, absorbs quickly and, once on, it makes your skin feel super smooth to touch, as if you used a primer. My makeup was just gliding on.

Cons: ...Exactly, like a primer... It's very siliconey and creates a layer on your skin which your moisturiser cannot penetrate to deliver hydration. At the same time the salycylic acid in the serum was drying me …

I used to love this in my mind twenties when my skin was just oily, but since I became combination with a bit of dryness, it just makes my skin really uncomfortable.

Pros: Very light, runny consistency great for oily skin. Great coverage for a bb (medium). looks very natural when it melts into the skin. It's also super affordable.

Cons: Very strong yellow undertone …

This is my HG powder for setting undereye concealer. Perfect for anyone with very deep set eyes (and undereye area).

Pros: Finely milled, super brightening and has amazing light reflective particles that make your undereye area look fresh and flawless. Because it is so brightening it's perfect to optically bring forward any areas that are sunken in. It's pricey and the jar is …

Moisturizers - LANEIGE - Balancing Emulsion for Light

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2016

This product is marketed as a balancing moisturiser for oily / combination skin and I'm not sure if it lives up to the claims.

Pros: Super light consistency and absorbs really quickly. It does not clog the pores. The packaging is heavy and bulky, but it's very sturdy, has a pump (yay!) and looks great.

Cons: Even though I'm super oily on my T-zone and I use a …

Oct/29/2016

It's ok for the price. I'm oily/combination but in the winter and autumn the area around my lips gets really dry and flaky so I was looking for a moisturiser to stop this from happening and was using it just there.

Pros: It does hydrate and it's very reasonably priced.

Cons: It has no brightening effect whatsoever, unlike some of the high end creams. It has a …

Moisturizers - Estée Lauder - Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Cream [REFORMULATED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2016

This is a great moisturiser for any areas where your skin is a bit dry or for dry / normal skin in general.

Pros: It has a lovely, almost 'whipped' mousse-like consistency and absorbs really well. It does leave a slight film, but it's not sticky and I find that it creates a great base for makeup giving it something to adhere to. It actually stops makeup around my lips …

Treatments (Face) - Estée Lauder - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2016

This is a nice serum but not for anyone who's remotely acne prone.

Pros: Fairly light consistency (but not as light as in case of Korean serums). It makes your skin feel deeply moisturised and soft. I'm oily combination but the area around my lips can get really dry. This makes it feel deeply nourished overnight. It also smells really nice and not in an overpowering way. The …
