Rather embarrassing, but I had no idea this wasn't working for me! Was wearing this for about 2 months thinking it was wonderful (great coverage, love the texture, toned down my red face), until one day I was sitting on a pub patio and a friend told me I had yellow and green on my face.* Checking it inside, I couldn't see what she was seeing, but taking a compact outdoors showed me …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Newco - Alpha Lipoic Acid Skin Care Anti-Aging Night Cream, Citrus

Apr/11/2013

First purchased in 2009 and then again in August 2012 @ $37 for 50ml.

Ages ago, I was looking for a retinol product, knowing that I work really well with things that have aloe as their base, love rosehip seed oil and tea tree oil. At the same time, I was also looking into using citric acids on my face for brightening. All the requirements were filled in the …

UPDATE: 5 Feb 2014. On my third jar and still just as addicted as I was when I first wrote this overly long rambling review. tl;dr - simple, thick, cool on the skin and smells like warmed honey. Older review below.
.............
At the start of the year, my skin felt thin from peels and scrubs and really dull from using too many brightening products. I started looking for …

Bath Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Genuine African Formula - Nine Herbs Detoxifying Bath (with essential minerals)

I love this bath and I've soaked with it once every 2 months for the past year. 3 capfulls in the tub, and it preps my skin wonderfully for a BIG scrub.
This completely opens my pores (and draws everything out), so I need a cool rinse to close up before toweling off.
It's pricey, but affordable considering the ingredients (listed above), it's strength and how long it …

Lip Treatments - KORRES Natural Products - Lip Butter - Wild Rose

Very moisturising, no flaking, one dot gives me a lovely lip tint. I've repurchased one as a backup, and I've given it as a present to both my sister and my mother. They both loved it, despite thinking that it would be too deep red. Very reasonably priced for the amount you get, and it lasts a long time.

Least terrible sunscreen I've used so far, but I'm *really* not a fan of sunscreen to begin with. Cons: Very shiny. Needs blotting by noon.

Pros: Moisturising. No clogs (and I have huge pores). Mixes with my foundation well. Doesn't run. I never tan wearing this and it's very easy to wash off. Lastly, I've been using it for about 1 year now - the first …

Skincare - Face - The Body Shop - Aloe Gentle Facial Wash

2.0

Apr/06/2013

About as effective as washing with glycerin soap, but with what I can only call a sort of “green” equivalent of new car smell attached. Tried using daily for 3 weeks and was able to keep it up for 2 days per week. Very bumpy cheeks, chin and forehead coming up 2 – 5 hours following each wash and staying for about half a day afterwards with no benefit.

I've completely used up one bottle and repurchased this twice. No clogs, no trouble removing it, very smooth, cool feeling (not minty or anything, but clean) and importantly for me, it mixes well with everything. Big fan of the air pump (huzzah for hygiene).

I love it more than Tarte's smooth operator (my second favourite), and it's not as shiney. It IS …

Apr/05/2013

Pros: Feels oh so gentle. Lovely, and helps my skin soak up moisturizer wonderfully. I like the scent and wish I could use it daily. 1/4 tsp is enough for my face, neck and chest.

Cons: “brightening” This gem is STRONG and I feel like it thins my skin. I may continue to use this once a week or so, but I don't need it daily (I prefer to use just water or honey and a …

This is a review from me and my partner. I'm 35, have overall normal skin with big pores and a bumpy forehead, and she's 42 with maddeningly perfect skin (meow.). She uses this moisturizer daily and looks radiant, loves how it feels and has bought an extra for the gym. I use it occasionally to mix with my foundation, but prefer not to use it too often. I find it too “brightening” to …Read more
