I am currently using this product and already I want to chuck it one side and purchase another brand of cushion :(

Alarm bells first went off when I removed it from the box and opened it. The compact opened too easily and it did not shut properly. There was no firm snap when I closed it.

When I started to use it, I noticed the plasticky smell. It dissipated after a while …

My first BB Cushion, believe it or not lol. And April Skin is a great intro to the Cushion range of makeup.

Even though I have dry skin, I purchased the cushion with the black case. (The black case is for normal-to-oily skin while the white is for drier skin) It worked well.

There is a lot of great things about this cushion which I really only thought about in hindsight …

Love this shampoo. Purchased the smaller tube size first and loved it so much I went back and got the larger pump-bottle size.

The shampoo cleans well and my hair feels soft and manageable. I have colour-treated hair and the shampoo did not stripe any colour at all. It protects my hair and prevents it from drying out and becoming straw-like from hair treatments.

Some people …

I like this cleanser alot. It cleans well, it smells great and it is great for sensitive skin especially my rosacea. My skin is always in good condition when I use this.

But I always hesitate re-purchasing because of price. This cost a whopping AUD 70/USD 61 for a 200ml bottle. For a cleanser which I usually wash off after several minutes, it just seems very expensive for its …

I have this in Birch. The colour fit my skin tone very well. It also covers very well too.

However, I will not be re-purchasing. I find that this mineral foundation dries out my skin. I have dry, sensitive skin to begin with and it makes it worse. I started having dry patches after each use and it took several days of intensive moisturising and switching to a fluid foundation to …

Nov/16/2014

One of the better organic cream cleansers out there, especially for its price. I have been going through cream cleansers from green brands for a while now, and has been lamenting that a really good cream cleanser that works for my sensitive skin with rosacea and is economical is rather hard to find.

Trilogy's sensitive skin cream cleanser is not as cheap as some brands one find on …

Jun/12/2014

A dependable cream cleanser. I have tested many green or organic cream cleansers (PAI, MV Organics, Mychelle, A'kin, Intelligent Nutrients, Madara etc) and I find Trilogy's cream cleanser to be a good affordable cleanser that works and will not make a big dent in your wallet.

It has a nice scent and a nice slightly thick consistency to it (i don't much like cream …

Purchased this as I have begin to switch to an all-natural skincare regime, and this is easily available at my neighbourhood pharmacy and is quite affordable.

I actually like the spicy scent. It is more of a spiced pumpkin pie scent, than a pumpkin scent.

This cleanser is most suitable for dry and/or mature skin. It works very well on my dry skin and it doesn't make me …

Mar/26/2014

Bought this lip gloss in Lilac and loved the colour because it goes very well with my Black Honey Almost Lipstick. It was smooth and not too sticky.

However, after a few months, the lip gloss started to emanate a bad smell. Told the SA at the Clinique beauty counter about it and she passive-aggressively placed the blame on me (the customer), implying that I wasn't cleaning my lips …

Mar/24/2014

I was going through a period of dry, flaky skin with pimples popping up in places where I hardly ever break out (jaw line, etc), and red itchy patches around my eyes.

I decided the best way to cure this was to let my skin rest and go back to a simple routine (no complicated 12 steps of skincare!) of just cleanser, serum and moisturiser. I also decided to go as natural with my skincare …
