I love this cleanser. Fragrance and colour-free and cleans quite well. I always use a makeup remover but sometimes have abit of eye makeup left on my face and this removes the last bits right off. Very economical because a little drop of this foams a lot and goes a long way. I was afraid it would be too drying but it my skin feels very moisturised and protected and I don't suffer from …Read more

Ok well I feel so bad to be the odd one out but this cream doesn't really do all that much for me. My skin is combo-sensitive-dry and I need something slightly richer for my face in winter; its seems ok for summer. When i wake up in the morning my face looks like...well...my face. I don't see anything special but then again my eyesight isn't that great without my glasses so I could …Read more

For those reviewers who claim that this is just water - sorry but you're wrong. If it was, I wouldn't be getting these horrible tiny pimples on my face each time I use it. I have tried letting it dry on my face versus spraying my face and then wiping it off. Both options give bad results. Guess it's just too strong.

Can someone tell me if I'm using this product incorrectly? Im using the regular Redken Diamond Shatterproof Oil (not the intense version). I apply 3 drops to wet towel dried hair and it turns my thick coarse 2c asian tresses into hard straw. Gave it to my sister-in-law, who has incredibly fine hair, to try. And it did the same to her. We both blow-dry our hair. Will never blow money again on …Read more

If a product comes with a hefty price tag, I expect the WOW factor for my curls and waves. There was none of that. In fact, I don't know why I bother with shampoos and conditioners designed for curls when I get the same result from "non-curly" haircare. IMO, I find the formula together with the shampoo leaves me with a lot of build up and residue to the point where i would need to …Read more

I was previously using Uriage Isofill anti-wrinkle cream for dry skin but chose this very basic cream because it has hyaluronic acid in it. My skin gets really dry in winter so chose the rich version. Whereas the Uriage brand was incredibly thick and buttery, this one's very light and airy in comparison. Both do a good of moisturising; neither leaves a greasy film on my face and both leaves …Read more

I wanted to try something a bit different from my favourite Palladio desert rose mosaic blush. I'm not exactly fair skinned but this seems to work ok. As someone with a naturally golden complexion, I find that I have to apply a few layers before my cheeks take on a peachy pink hue. Its fine for the office or for casual looks and gives my cheeks a slightly flushed look. Staying power is …Read more

After cutting my hair super short last year, I started a course of a local south African brand called Biolife Biotin 5mg and would just take half a capsule daily dissolved in water. Within a few months, my hair was down past my shoulders and everyone wanted to know what I 'd done to make my hair grow so fast. Fast forward to this year - I'd cut my hair short again and decided to try …Read more

I was torn between this and Bioderma and this won out. I've heard other reviewers claim that it works basically the same and at the fraction of the price of Bioderma. And I while I have no experience with Bioderma, I can say that I love using this to remove makeup. I generously soak a cotton pad with the water and then smooth it over my face, concentrating on my eyes. No traces of makeup …Read more
