I purchased this product as I was breaking out around my forehead and chin, as well as uneven skin texture on my forehead. I've been using another AHA cream (mild enough for daily use) but wasn't getting results within a month so I decided to give this a try. It was on sale for 30% off at my local drug store.

Pros - The pump dispenser is great because it portions the amount …

I must admit that at first, I could not justify spending this much money on something that serves to manually clean my face.

After hearing rave reviews from a friend, I decided to bite the bullet and purchased off ebay from a US seller for $150 ($30 postage). I actually thought about buying it from local AUstralian department stores but it was double the price. Um, no …

Bath Treatments - Palmer's - Body Oil

I normally use pure lavender body oil but I've been looking to create something I can use in bulk. So I managed to pick up this bottle and am reasonably impressed with the outcome of mixing 3/4 Palmers with 1/4 Lavender oil.

To maximise your application and reduce wastage, pour the product into a spray bottle and use that. If you pour the liquid straight into your hand, it leads …

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil - Slate

Aug/19/2011

I've only recently started using these products and am already starting to build a collection. Its very creamy, does not pull against my eyelid upon application and having monolids, it's super convenient when I'm in a rush.

A sweep of iced mocha over the entire lid, with a dark grey or brown shadow to the crease and I am good to go for work. It has cut my application …

Shampoo - Joico - Color Endurance Color Lock Shampoo

Aug/19/2011

Despite the negative reviews, I rate this product highly. Having jet black hair, I had it coloured a reddish/brown. The sort of red tint you can see without the sun. I noticed less colour wash out on first use. Used with the conditioner, this is a great combination.

Having oily hair, I have to wash at least every two days (unless I use a dry shampoo to leave it for another day) and …

I am of chinese descent and my hair is paper straight to the point hairdressers ask me if I have had chemical straightening (when it's natural!).

This is the only product (firm hold) that I have found that holds the curl without leaving my hair crisp or creating that white residue when you brush it out.

I highly recommend this for anyone struggling to create curls that …

Having hooded asian eyes, most liners basically smudge or melt off by the end of the day.

I have this in both black and the dark grey and it's fantastic. I put it on in the morning, and it does not budge at all. As other reviewers have said, smudge it out immediately otherwise prepare yourself for some permanent colour.

I found with the dark grey (it's actually …

Liquid - Inglot Cosmetics - AMC Cream Foundation

May/13/2011

I use the AMC liquid foundation. I apply it with a wet sponge and end up with a light, dewy finish. I don't use a pressed powder as I don't require that amount of coverage. It stays on all day and you can't detect I even have it on (I use a face primer also). People compliment me that I'm looking 'fresh' whenever I put it on. The pump dispenser is quite a handy …Read more

May/13/2011

I was impressed with the product. The glass tub keeps the cream cool for application, and it spreads quite liberally so avoid being heavy handed with it. It's silky to the touch, and is readily absorbed. Fragrance is low I found appealing.

Overall, I was happy with the product and am definately sticking with it in the long run. With other night creams, I've experienced excess …

May/13/2011

I found the pigment and texture to be of high quality, it's actually a little bit silkier than MAC in my opinion. For the price, it's exceptional quality. If you do manage to find a store, make the most of the free system they have available as the price per shadow and the ability to stack your shadows magnetically (which saves space and is a good way of organise your make-up) is …Read more
