I'm pleasantly surprised by this product- as others have said, the powders are highly pigmented and they are generous sizes. The packaging is attractive and has quite a professional palette feel to it, although this makes it something that can't fit in my travelling makeup bag. As someone with pale skin I didn't think I would use so many of the colours- but I used all but 1. I …Read more

I'm very pleasantly surprised by this product. At $33 this is the cheapest foundation I've bought and I think it's here to stay for my "everyday" makeup. The concept bears a striking resemblance to ysl's le teint touché eclat. I apply with fingers then blend using a damp blending sponge- this is the best way to make the most of the "luminous" finish IMO. I …Read more

I bought this impulsively online as I was fed up with yet another reaction to a face sunscreen. I used it as a facial sunscreen over a long weekend and waited for the acne and congestion... And I waited... And waited. Still no sign! This is the only 30+ face cream I have used that not only does not clog my skin, it also lets it breathe and allows for a normal production of oils without drying at …Read more

My skin loves this product. It's somehow ridiculously gentle yet super effective when used as a cleanser. I would recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin, particularly if you're like me and tend to walk a tightrope between combination and normal skin types. As a makeup remover you should not expect it to remove your makeup as quickly/easily as conventional makeup removers BUT it …Read more

This is just what my skin needs. Controls shine all day under foundation and feels like nothing. I apply it in the morning to my t-zone before moisturiser and haven't had any dryness, irritation or acne from it. If I could I would rename it to a "mattifying cream" or something to that effect because it's that sebum control rather than the pore minimisation that stands out for …Read more

I don't know what I did before this existed. The tropical scent is my favorite. I agree that it probably is best for us with light hair although I believe they now have a dark version.

I love these and have loved them for years. I use them after steaming my face slightly to open the pores before applying. For even better results I apply a clay masque first to draw the impurities to the surface, then steam and apply the strip. I reckon they get about 80-90% of the gunk out for me.

I've had this in the black and white for years and it's still going! I actually like that it's fairly soft so it smudges well and isn't irritating to apply. Since I only wear eyeliner at night I always look for eyeliners that wash off easily.

I bought this product to just add a little extra hydration on top of my moisturiser during the day. I wanted to love it, but it's just really nothing special. My skin just looks dull.

Unfortunately my skin is just too sensitive for this product, it really was an unpleasant burning sensation when I applied it and left my skin with a red irritation for some time. The good news is that it does have a dry finish (doesn't feel the same after being in water though) and is very effective at blocking out the sun. I would recommend this product for those who have oily and …Read more
