Aug/07/2017

A great dupe for Clinique's TTDO Cleansing Balm! Quite literally exactly the same product - colour, texture and performance-wise.
Except far cheaper!

+ Great for travelling. Solid balm that melts into an oil upon touch. Slim tub, fits into toiletries bag nicely.
+ Very effective make up and sunscreen remover
+ I love the way it feels on the skin upon …

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Lipikar - Syndet Gel Creme

5.0

Aug/07/2017

I use this for my second cleanse, face and neck, and alternate between this and the Avene Emollient Cleansing Gel.

+ Efficient. Small pinky-sized amount enough to cleanse whole face and neck.
+ No lingering fragrance. Luscious texture when massaged with water, foams up better than the Avene ECG because of the SLS in it (don't be scared of SLS in cleansers - if it's a …

Great mimic of a more expensive item with same ingredients at the same strength (you know the one!)

+ Absorbs fast, with no stickiness
+ Layers well underneath serum/moisturiser/sunscreen
+ Semi-opaque bottle
+ Helpful instructions come with the product re storage, recognising if its oxidised
+ Extremely good value
+ Visibly evened out my skin tone over the …

Aug/07/2017

Have been using this for 1.5 years, bought this in France where it is very affordable, anywhere overseas (eg Australia where I am) it is very overpriced. It's received a lot of hype from famous make up artists who use this back stage for shows and shoots.

+ Basic and hydrating moisturiser
+ Portable packaging
+ Good value in France, overseas not so much
+ Many …

Lips - Stila - Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/14/2016

This product is the best lipstick I have tried! It is comfortable to wear, lasts and lasts and lasts, you really never have to touch up. Everytime I'm out wearing this with my friends they ask "How do you make your lipstick stay put?!"

I have this in Beso, so far I haven't found the other colours attractive for my skin colour, so the only downside I'd have to …

Not great, not bad. Nothing more than a moisturising lip balm with a matte finish to me! I really like the packaging as it is small, light and slim, perfect for any cosmetic bag or travelling. Won't buy again as there are other lip products I have found to be more useful.

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Coast to Coast - Ultra Soothing Aqua Mist

1.0

Jan/27/2016

Without exaggeration, this is the worst mist I have used, for the following reasons:

PACKAGING
When sprayed, the nozzle sprays the product quite forcefully for a mist, and if you hold it in front of your face at the level of your eyes it will hurt. I only spray on my forehead, neck and cheek area now to avoid that. Several other mists I have tried have nozzles that spray the …

Cleansers - Shea Terra Organics - Rose Hip & Red Bush African Black Soap Face Wash

Dec/09/2015

I have used this for several months. It gives you a great clean, but leaves my face feeling slightly taut and like I HAVE to moisturise. My other gentle cleansers do not give me this feeling.

I find this is good as a weekly mask or spot treatment for breakouts. It has a high pH level which prompted me to leave it for a while, and which explains the dry, taut feeling after use …

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/09/2015

Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser has long been a staple in my family's home. It is an effective, good value cleanser that does what it says on the bottle - nothing more, nothing less. Cleaning eye make up is easy, just massage the product gently around the face and repeat if necessary (depending on how much product you have on).

I also find Cetaphil to be a fantastic make-up brush …

Skincare - Body - MooGoo - Milk Wash

Dec/09/2015

I began using this about a year ago and stopped because I found it too gentle.

About 2 months ago I began using it again, and I believe this will be one of those products I have to have at all times in my bathroom. It is one of the gentlest, mildest and effective cleansers made from natural ingredients you can buy here in Australia at a good price range too.

I use this in …
