Every few years it seems I get nostalgic and buy products purely for their scent because it takes me back to a simpler time in my youth, Nivea cream, Johnsons baby lotion, Anne French etc. Astral fell into this category when I sniffed it and bought it a couple of weeks ago. A thick but easily spread cream I put it on one night as a one off thinking it would be too heavy for my combo, sensitive …Read more

This is a great product - glides on, stays put yet lips feel comfortable not dry. Colour is a muted semi sheer coral. I loved this product so much I went and bought another in 'Power'. Same rating for both.

Love the sheertone textures,this colour looks great on me in the summer when i have a light tan as it looks slightly peachy in contrast to my skin, However it tends to look dull in the winter when I'm pale where it appears more beige. I wouldn't buy again for this reason.

I love the sheertone textures as they are great for giving a flush and colour is buildable but hard to overdo. I use this more than any other blush as it gives a good sheer healthy flush. Nice size blushers too, I hate the diddy ones some brands offer.

This is one of the few products I've actually used right up and gone back for more. I don't like wearing foundation but need it here and there to even my complexion. This has a great consistency and feels so light and fresh on application. It helps that BB staff (ime) have the best trained staff when it comes to colour matching. This is literally like spare liquid skin to me. Love it …Read more

I have the Apricot shimmer. The packaging is great, probably the best for a balm/gloss I've ever used, the smell divine and this balm/gloss has staying power as it has a thick but not gooey consistency. On my lips however it doesn't look any different to most other slighty shimmery tinted balms that you can get for a fraction of the price. A nice luxury treat but other equally good far …Read more

This cleanser reminded me so much of washing with Aqueous cream that I felt conned at paying a premium for it. The only positive thing I can say is that it didn't irritate my skin. I had to use a muslin cloth to remove it completely with water as it doesn't rinse easily.

I have combination skin prone to the odd hormonal breakout. I've been using this about 3 weeks now and love it. It's gentle but effective, small blemishes that had been lingering have gone and it seems to be dislodging the odd stubborn blackhead without drying out the rest of my face.
