I'm on the lookout for a affordable sunscreen for my face. I thought this would be the one - hypoallergenic, fragrance free, SPF 30, and anti-shine.
It works, it really keeps the skin protected and does not irritate, itch or make me break out.
BUT: the weirdest thing happens when put this on: my face start to feel really really hot and flushed. I get red on my cheeks and this …

i love this lip balm. it is nourishing, helps even with very dry lips and it lasts a very long time. i still use the first stick i ever bought two years ago, and i use it multiple times a day. the smell can take a bit getting used to (sweet-musky-minty, a weird combo) - but i've grown to love it. it also takes a little while to sink in, but it doesn't become runny or melt off the lips …Read more

i don't think this is meant to be used as an overall face cream, it balls and curls up and wouldn't stay on. it has a thick, chalky/creamy, slightly lumpy, densely white texture and will show where having been applied. the smell is very faint, slightly metallic but not unpleasant.

i got a small sample tube of this with my last purchase at pc. didn't think that i actually …

i love this powder as a primer. i apply with a small brush all over, esp over the eyelids, and anything i put on after, stays there all day.

this doesn't have a smell. has never irritated or clogged my skin.

one compact lasts about 6-8 months with daily use.

pricey but it works!

i use pc's bha gel at night, so i have to use a sunscreen throughout the day.

this is the only one that i'll use on my face. i like the tint, i have some redness in my skin - but after applying this, i can skip foundation. i have been using this for over two years now. never caused any problems. it is rather drying, which works for me - i …

tried and tested quite a few different removers over the last few years. i always wear waterproof mascara and liner.

this works. i doesn't smell, it doesn't sting, i don't need to rub. isn't oily or tacky. does not irritate.

i just shake up the bottle, make a little dent in my cotton pad, put a reasonable amount on and hold the pad on my eye. just a …

i tried this after i coloured my hair to make it last longer.

i love the smell and that it is so strong BUT after two weeks my scalp and my hands started to itch.
and it kept on itching and continued to wander down on my face, neck and shoulders, so i think i'm having a delayed reaction to the product.

should have known better! i will stop using it and go look …

i have to be honest. this eye makeup remover does not work. i asked the chemist for a remover that can get down waterproof mascara. she told me she'd get hers off easily with this product and highly recommended this.

well! the mascara (and even non-waterproof eyeliner) stays on! first, i thought i use it in a wrong way. but as it said on the bottle to simply remove the eye makeup …
