I'm slightly confused by this. It does make my flaky skin much smoother, however it really depends how well I moisturise beforehand, this primer also makes me crazy shiny and I've never had to deal with that in my life, my skin looks like an oil slick but still flakes up on my t-zone?! Crazy! I swear this has also blocked some of my pores around my nose.
However, it does help my …

Jul/12/2016

I love this foundation for my very dry and sensitive skin! It adds a luminosity to my dull skin and doesn't sink into my pores or my flaky parts. I do prime with my Laura Mercier Hydration Primer before and the two work AMAZINGLY together for dry skin! This foundation is very sheer and watery so if you wanted even a medium coverage, this may not be for you. You can however build it up, it …Read more

Picked this up as was desperate for foundation for a night out and had heard amazing reviews on this. I usually buy high-end foundations.
The colour range is fantastic, I must say. I am the lightest shade, Rose Ivory and it suits my skin down to the ground when first applied, however, even with primer, this did oxidise slightly. I also did not like how chalky this foundation felt on my skin …

I received a tester of this cream with my Cleansing Milk from Osea Malibu. I was incredibly excited to try as the cream has loads of fantastic reviews and seemed suited to my dry/sensitive skin. (I ADORE the cleansing milk so the brand is held in high esteem).

I applied the cream as directed and it felt lovely and smooth on application, the scent is slight but there, but doesn't …

This cream is especially good for dry, sensitive skin on the face. I would not suggest for combination-oily or very oily skin as it is way too rich and greasy!
I found this works best warmed up between my fingertips and applied in a patting motion as the formula doesn't have much slip and 'massaging' it in like the instructions say only drags your skin around. This is a very …

Self Tanners - St.Tropez - In-Shower Gradual Tan

Jun/30/2016

This product says it works for all skin tones, this is a lie. If you're darker than a light-medium, this will not tan you at all. I am very very pale (think lightest MAC shade) and bought the medium tanner. now I'm used to gradual tans, and used to waiting a while and applying every day to build colour, however, this tan didn't show up anything on me. I got like a slight yellow …Read more

This product is fabulous! I struggle with eczema prone skin that also breaks out in my t-zone and this moisturiser soothes my dry blotchy patches and also doesn't break me out. I love how cheap the pots are (I use the original one not the light one) and it is so intensely moisturising! You can feel it cooling your skin off as well! The only gripe I have with this is that it comes in a pot …Read more

I really wanted to love this but it was horrendous on my skin. I got this colour tested at Ulta and was matched to Fair Sand, the colour was lovely on my skin and brightened it up in store. Alas, when I went to put this foundation on at home, it turned my skin into one giant ball of dryness. It sunk into every dry patch I had and fine lines, it look quite frankly horrific.
I could see the …

I purchased T-Gel after coming to my wits end with my dandruff. It was EVERYWHERE on my scalp and most noticeable around my hairline. It was flaking into my actual hair and made me, quite frankly, look like I had mange. I tried natural remedies such as coconut oil but this just made the build-up worse so I bought T-Gel.
And oh my god, I LOVE it. I could not fault this product. You need to …
