Urgh, I rarely give negative reviews but this stuff is horrible. I've bought $3 Daiso mascaras that are ten times better than this!
The formula is totally clumpy and very wet. The end of the brush that touches your eyelashes is so flimsy and the bristles sparse that it's almost impossible to get any mascara on your actual eyelashes.
I persisted for a week before rinsing the …

This is hand still down te best drug store mascara I've ever tried, and I've tried heaps!!

I bought the 'easy wash' version which I guess means non waterproof but I have to say, it still takes a hell of a lot to make this mascara smudge! I mean 100% humidity and a swim and it's still on! That said, it does remove easily and fully with an oil makeup remover …

This is my go to foundation. I don't like the look or feel of heavy coverage , so I'm not certain you'll like this is you want super heavy coverage.

I love everything about this. It's apparently good for skin and it feels like it's good for skin when it's on. It's a product you can use all year round. The packaging is fancy and sturdy. The sponge it …

This is such a great drug store/pharmacy product! I wanted to buy my favourite MakeupGeek eyeshadows but I saw these at a fraction of the price and thought I'd use each of the colours in the pack (I have rooftop bronze). I usually only like a couple of the colours in a set, but I use all of them in this one.

The colour payoff isn't as good as Mac and MUG, but it's still …

The one product you didn't know you needed until you've used it.

I bought a little purse size of this after not replacing my last one that ran out. I went through a phase of wanting to use essential oils on my face, so I replaced my last spray with a different product.

I'm so glad I spotted this again. It's calming and comforting to the skin especially …

I'm so bummed this hasn't worked for me like it has other reviewers. I've spent so much money on anti frizz products over the years and am still searching for my holy grail product because this isn't it.
Sure, it makes my hair shiny, but so does a good shampoo, conditioner and quick once over with the hairdryer.
This did absolutely nothing for frizz for me. Nothing …

I was looking for a cheaper version of my long term favourite- Nu Skin mud mask. This was the most economical with good reviews.
I purchased a small size in a little kit and used it for the first time at about 5pm New Year's Eve. Big mistake!!! While it didn't sting in the slightest, it left my skin bright red! And I mean bright red!!! Needless to say I had to cancel my plan for …

I kept reading rave reviews about this lip mask so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm glad I only bought a small size as it's not all it's hyped up to be. It smells like artificial cheap stuff, and really isn't any better than something you'd find at the Chemist for a fraction of the price.
I have seriously dry lips, and in my experience and research anything that …

Lip Treatments - Vaseline - Lip Therapy - Rosy Lips

For a lip balm that's available at most chemists and supermarkets, this is a decent product. It leaves a tiny red tint on lips that looks natural, and somehow healthy.

I'm not sure if Vaseline is actually moisturising, or if it just acts as a barrier from the elements. It doesn't have any of the moisturising ingredients that many other lip balms have (all types of good …

I must be the only one who isn't blown away by this product. I had wanted to try it for so long, but didn't want to order online, most of the Skinfood shops near me have closed down and their Facebook page didn't respond to my question about which outlets sell it. Some pharmacies here carry a very small range.
I was so surprised to go to a different shopping centre and …
