I'm not feeling the love for this mascara at all.
I'll start by prefacing my comments with this : - I may have a bad/old tube of it. Reading the other reviews it doesn't sound like we're using the same product so maybe I just got a rogue one!

It seems to take an age to get this to actually show up on my lashes. With Masterpiece Max, or Lancome Virtuouse, for …

If you have any skin sensitivity I would absolutely advise you to try a sample of this cream first.
This was rec'd to me by the MA at my local BB counter to help my dehydrated combo skin.
This feels lovely going on, nice and hydrating, and best of all it is quickly absorbed.
However my skin hates one of the ingredients in this. I'm guessing it's one of the essential …

Skincare - Face - Garden of Wisdom - Chamomile Hydrosol

My skin loved this. It was soothing and didn't clog my pores. It helped to hydrate my parched face. But I couldn't get past the smell of it. I can't understand it - I drink and enjoy chamomile tea, but the smell of this I had to stop using it.

My oily dehydrated skin does not like this product at all, but I've been using it for a year because my skin reacts inconsistently to it. Sometimes it's fine, other times it isn't and it's taken me several months to realise that the cleanser is just too harsh for me. I think it's the decylpolywotsit.
The old version was way too harsh for me and would create a blotchy …

I think my two year love affair with GoW is almost over. I got their oily/dehydrated kit back in March 2008 and used it and for a couple of weeks my skin looked great. Well I've been using GoW products ever since and realised just this week that actually, my skin is not looking great and hasn't done for a long time. It's time for a complete reassessment of my skin care routine …Read more

My skin hates this! I don't have sensitive skin, although I do seem to have issues with some foaming cleansers..but nothing as bad as this.
I love the concept - use it on damp or dry skin, it takes off eye make up as well and it rinses off. All of that is something I've been looking for in a HG cleanser.
But it's way too harsh for me, I actually had an allergic reaction …

Not in love with this. I'm so disappointed. I've wanted to try this for ages, but MUFE is hard to find in the UK. So I bought it in France on a trip recently. It was around 28 euro.
I was matched to shade #30 but I don't think it's quite right for me, I think it's either too dark or too warm or something.
It goes on nicely and the coverage is quite good …

Well this is another of those foundations that gets very mixed reviews, seems to be love or hate!
This is awful on me. My face felt oily within 10 minutes of application on my T zone but my cheeks felt tight and uncomfortable!
It's very runny and messy to apply.
The colour I was matched to is called 'Ivory' but this is NOT Ivory as most sane people would understand …

I'm envious of those of you who can make this work.
The concept, a mineral make up that isn't messy, is a base and concealer in one, and that can be brushed on quickly, sounds fabulous to me.
But it doesn't work for me.I was layering and layering to get any coverage, using the JI Handi (which is a great brush). I would need to buy one of these compacts at least once a …

I was really hopeful aobut this product when I used it. It feel so rich and...unctuous (is that a word?). But my hair hated it and turned to straw the next day.
I'm looking for a much cheaper alternative to Aubrey Organics HR which is pretty expensive here in England, and sadly, this isn't it.
