Pros:
No parabens etc.
Vacuum packed pump dispenser - very hygienic.
Barely lathers but leaves skin feeling fresh.
I can double cleanse (end of day dirt & make-up) without my skin feeling tight and stripped of all oils.
Light scent.

I don't actually think I have anything negative to add...

I bought 250ml for £6 which is a wonderful price compared to others on the market. I chose cold-pressed and organic and mixed it with 2ml of rose essential oil for a light scent.
Uses: neat on skin as a moisturiser/massage oil, a few pumps in the bath, mix with coarse salt/sugar as a body scrub, mixed with cold-pressed walnut butter for a thick body butter, blended with rose water for skin …

Rouge d'Armani 604 - plum.
Usually I'll slick a thin layer on & work into my lips for a tint of colour to make me look less dead in the morning. It applies beautifully, I love the rich plummy colour of 604 although I do wish they had a darker plum too. Doesn't bleed or feather on me (i don't bother with liner). Feels moisturising unlike a lot of the other lipsticks …

I quite like this shampoo, I haven't noticed anything drastic in reducing my shedding but I like the scent. Although it barely lathers, my hair still feels clean afterwards and doesn't feel like my hair is weighed down. I use about 1-2tsp of product and wash my hair 2-3 times a week (i used to wash it everyday but I didn't want to continually strip my hair of its oils) so one …Read more

I started with the trial sized product-
light scent that isn't offensive,
easy to use,
I have managed using two days on the run and it doesn't give me that hideous grey roots that some brands leave me with on first use- ahem Batiste (original).
It worked for me when I had blue hair and it works for me now with my black hair, so I have this in full-size and …

Pleasant and faint scent, lathered up well with very little product.
The packaging hasn't annoyed me yet, but I expect I'll be niggled when I can't actually see how much product I have left.

I recently dyed my hair back to 'soft black' (was manic panic atomic blue 6months and midnight blue for 9months prior to that...) so required a …

Thought that this would be an investment product. I was wrong and at £20+ for a nice-looking pot of lip balm that doesn't work, consider it a lesson learnt. It felt alright for the first 20mins.. but I think having to apply it every 20 minutes is excessive.

Its worked for everyday use, my moisturiser lasts a lot longer without the need of an extra dab.. so it does what it says on the package and I'm happy with that. I love that its available in Boots so I can pop into my local branch for it.

The real test for me is when i'm on a long-haul flight..

I use this with shu's matte face powder, to get a natural-looking light coverage, evening out my skintone. (If I need full coverage I use their liquid foundation too. But I rarely do.) Its light and has spf30 which is a bonus as I tan easily.

I haven't experienced any problems with the packaging.

I love the rose mist and have done for a while now. Its handy to put some into a travel-sized bottle in general but especially when you're facing a longhaul flight..
