The packaging is clearly a copy of the benefit 'they're real' mascara. I bought this as I am away for a month and I brought some Rodial mascara with me which is utterly dissappointing, I wanted to buy a replacement that was cheap and if it was rubbish I'd throw it away - its a great every day mascara. I would compare it to MAC extended play but at a much better price point (I …Read more

I got this in a travel size as I'm away for a month and couldn't bring my large bottle of bioderma with me. Its pretty good - does the job, it does have fragrance which might put some people off. I have quite sensitive skin though and this didnt break me out.

It doesn't trump my bioderma micellar water though so I wont buy again

I know a lot of people are put off by the poor shade range, and I understand that. However I bought this before I knew about that issue and I think it deserves to be reviewed on its merits, as other brands have much worse shade ranges

I was matched to COMPLETELY the wrong colour in sephora but luckily they gave me two samples to try first. When I had the right colour I was so …

I tried this due to a recommendation from a friend. To sum it up in a word I would say 'meh'. The price is reasonable and I like the packaging, but I haven't really seen any difference from using this and probably wouldn't repurchase

Love love love this! I've only been using this for a few weeks but the difference in my skin is great. I had a big breakout on my cheeks and startedusing this hoping it would do something and its cleared the spots up quickly and improved the texture of my skin.

I didnt have any sensitivity to it and haven't found it drying at all. Its also helped with small white bumps i have …

I wanted to like this, and when the MUA put it on my face (with a brush) I thought it looked amazing. However its so thin and liquidy (like a thin paint texture) and just seems oily? It is buildable but I find it very hard to work with, and with acne prone skin I don't use a brush or sponge anymore, so I find it quite difficult to apply with my hands.

I was planning to use this as …

Feb/04/2018

I bought this after reading the reviews on makeupalley, and its the first Paula's choice product I tried. Having tried it for 3 months, until the trial size 30ml bottle ran out, I can say that unfortunately its not for me.

Firstly, the solution is far too runny. I have tried applying it with cotton pads and my fingers, but both times I think a lot of the liquid is wasted and …

I cannot say enough good things about this product!

After trying PC 2% salicylic acid I wasn't too impressed and thought twice about buying this before I saw someone selling it on ebay as an unwanted present - for the price I thought I may as well try it

I have dry, but acne-prone, reactive skin so was worried this may be a bit strong for me, but I think the gel formula …

This stuff is great! I originally found out about it from this site and just re-discovered it here after a couple of years (thanks)

Definitely lives up to the hype, removes makeup easily and is really gentle, with no film left on the face or drying feeling. I wash it off after using but supposedly you dont have to

Not cheap but worth the price, wish it had a pump top though …

Great at speeding healing of big red pimples

Seems to be non-irritating

Cons:
Skin can feel a bit tight/itchy after using
Skin is red immediately after using (this settles quickly)
Expensive!
Worked …
