This product is hands-down mind-blowing.

This outperforms just about anything out there. It is non-comodogenic, but also rather unpleasant to use, but it is well worth it.

Do you want this product? No. But do you need it? YES!

I have dryish skin, I use it on my hands, on brows, I mix it with serums for night use, I use it to heal cracks, wounds, eczema, basically …

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - SVR - Provegol - Make-up Removal Micellar Solution

I quite like the no-fuss feeling of this remover.

It is clear & mildly fragranced. The 500 ml comes with a pump which is a plus. It takes 2-3 round cloths to take everything off (foundation, contouring, shadow, mascara, etc). Leaves the face quite clean. You don't need to rince off but I always splash some water before moisturising.

So far I am very happy with it …

I start by saying I have dry skin & don't like layering powder around my sensitive eyes. I have always been envious of those who could. But that ended when Shiseido started releasing their cream shadow range and expanded their colour range.

These great quality products… luxurious & long lasting. Not too pigmented nor too shimmery. On my olive skin most of the colours look …

I recommend this to you only if you are completely hard of smelling. There must be at least half a dozen offensive odours, I prefer over this lipbalm, which to me smells like a mix of witchcraft & wet sheep.

Having said that to some people this only smells like raw honey. So I guess you will either love or hate this, which is somewhat of a gamble.

I can't tell you …

After an unfortunate reaction to a cosmetic products (a blush from bareMinerals), I have been spending a lot more time at pharmacies! I have slowly come to the realisation that many pharmacy brands are very underrated. They are well priced, always have an expiry date, properly packaged, appropriately labelled, and you do not get the feeling that you are paying for the colourful packaging and the …Read more

*** ALLERGY WARNING ***

On the nice side, the colour is amazing and unique.
On the ugly side, it contains IRRITANT ingredient: BISMUTH OXYCHLORIDE.

Yes ladies, if you are experiencing eyelid bumps, itchyness, driness of the eyes, ezcema or any type of allergic reaction... this is what is causing it. This ingredient all together is not good for use around the eyes due …

I am a lip balm addict and I am never more than 2 meters from a lip balm!

I am rather surprised that I am the first reviewer of this great lip balm. I have used many lip balms, both natural and synthetic, and this is the best lip balm I have ever used.

It is very moisturising (both in winter and summer), it lasts a long time and doesn't go bad, doesn't have a …

*** Ingredient Warning ***

As far as the performance goes, it does what it claims. I would have normally given this 4 or even 5 rating. But as far as their health and safety claims go, don’t believe a word.

This product is labelled as suitable for ‘sensitive and allergy prone skin’, and yet it contains IMIDAZOLIDINYL UREA (a Formaldehyde releaser), a known SKIN IRRITANT. I …

I must say it is not easy finding or making a mascara that has natural ingredients. So my review is going to be more lenient than if I was reviewing a regular mascara.

I am in a market for a new mascara since I discovered my beloved Maybelline Full’n Soft has a Formaldehyde releaser. That was a heart breaking moment coz I would never change mascaras if I could avoid it.
