When I was about 10 I started getting acne, and nothing would work. My mom brought me to LUSH and she got me this mask. It did a good job of making my skin clear, but my skin eventually got used to it or they changed the ingredients and it didn't work at all anymore. It's quite drying and it stings your skin initially. I think you build tolerance to it eventually. It's really thick …Read more

Before this I was using the glamglow clearing mud, which is amazing (and i'll say, is honestly better than this mask at keeping my pores clear) but ridiculously expensive. This does basically the exact same thing, it just doesn't shrink my pores like the gg does. It definitely dries out my skin a lot more, but my skin feels super soft and clears up a LOT after using this. I'd say …Read more

I'll say straight up: this product is crazy expensive and you can get similar results with much, much cheaper products. But, nothing can clean my pores out like this. It's some kind of a miracle worker.

PROS:
* My skin felt really clean after this. Like, really clean. And it looked amazing. It's never been as clear pretty much.
* My pores looked much smaller …

This is a really good product, and I think everyone should give it a try! It does what it says on the tin, and nothing less or more, which is why I really like it.

I takes all of my makeup off (sometimes I do need to go over the same spot twice, but this is only when i use heavier products) including waterproof mascara and eyeliner. It does take a few tries to get all of my mascara …

I've always wanted to try this sunscreen because of all the rave reviews, and it seems like a great sunscreen, but it *really* didn't work for me personally. I have eczema and very dry skin and this dried it out really badly. I ended up having a line on my face and neck (like a foundation line) where I applied it that was straight red, like a really bad sunburn. It took five days to …Read more

Totally in love with this foundation!

PROS:
* Unlike many people, it works on my dry skin (provided I use a good, hydrating primer)
* My perfect colour match. Better than any foundation I've ever tried colour wise.
* Medium coverage, buildable. Can look a little thick if you build it too much.
* Natural, pretty finish.
* Really matte but not painfully so …

Overall this isn't a really bad product but it just didn't do anything for me. I didn't get a tan from this really - it was very light and hardly noticeable, but it lasted very well and faded pretty evenly. It's a bit sticky and initially the scent is really nice, but after a few hours it seemed to turn into a more typical tan smell. The smell gets more overpowering as you go …Read more

I love this moisturiser! I have acne prone, very dry skin and this doesn't aggravate it at all. I have eczema under my eyes that doesn't get flared up when I use it. I love the way my skin feels after using this - it leaves my skin comfortably matte, not tight or feeling dry at all. The only downsides are that the pot is a pain, and you do need a fair bit of product because your skin …Read more

PROS:
- Super creamy, not powdery or frosty at all.
- There's a highlight in this for every skintone, and the other shades can be used as eyeshadows.
- Beautiful colours.
- Not super glittery, more of a natural looking shine - this is the greatest inner corner highlight and looks amazing on the bridge of the nose.
- As eyeshadows these last all day.
- Great …

This is an amazing foundation! With a very silicon-y primer like the inglot under makeup base or the maybelline babyskin primer, this foundation covered my pores like nothing else ever has and my skin looked FLAWLESS. Really comfortable wear for my dry skin, and didn't aggravate it at all!

PROS:
- Fantastic shade range, leans pinkish in lighter shades and reddish in darker …
