Skincare - Face - Bobbi Brown - Extra Soothing Balm

I ended up returning this. I bought it as my skin was dying of dryness, and in all honesty it didn't help much and ended up clogging up my pores (I do have sensitive skin).
I didn't keep it to use on other parts of my body, as personally I feel its quite expensive to put on elbows or other dry places.

Tinted Moisturizer - ORIGINS - GinZing Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturizer SPF 40

This is the perfect 'naked' face moisturizer. I use it on my non-full face days. I wear it with a bit of undereye concealer, blush and mascara and I love it.
Its very light, very moisturizing and gives a great glow. It really doesn't provide much coverage, so don't bother if that is your main concern.
Personally I love it, and I am on my third bottle.

I got this as a sample.
It does what plenty of reviewers say, great job on separating, lengthening and boosting. However, after a few hours I always had smudge, residue on my face! So I don't know if it was because it was a sample, smaller container, more likely to dry? But for the price of a full tube with poor staying on power, I don't think I would purchase.

The pro to this product is its great for sensitive skin and a great price. I have been using them for over 6 months, has there been a real difference in my skin? I think so.... but hard to say. Have they irritated my skin? Definitely not. So I feel like I am getting some benefit of AHA without the irritation.

So I bought this as part of pack, after I got a great facial with eminence products.
I was fearful of using it, in that I have pretty sensitive skin, however, I have pleasantly surprised and really like it.
Its a gentle exfoliator which gives you a great glow after and the glow lasts for a while.
To be honest, I don't know if all exfoliators would have the same effect (they …

Initially I loved this mascara, great volume and great deep black colour. However, I have found that after a few months, it started to clump to much for me. Clumping in mascara drives me nuts, and for the price of this mascara, I would expect it not to clump so soon.

After reading reviews of primers, I went to the Clarins counter to buy the other Clarins instant light primer. I was informed that this one has replaced the previous one. The counter lady put it on my skin under foundation and showed it to me mixed with foundation. I was very impressed and bought. Three weeks later, I am still very impressed. It really brightens my skin, and currently I mix it …Read more

Mascara - Bobbi Brown - Perfectly Defined Mascara

This mascara does exactly what it says it will. Its a perfect everyday mascara, and multiple layers can easily take it to a night time look.
More importantly though - it NEVER clumps. It is so easy and quick to use. Am very happy with it. While drugstore brands are cheap and good too, I am always annoyed that they clump. So for me, I don't mind paying the extra to avoid that!

So, as a background, I had very bad acne as a teen (am now in late 20s) and have had the odd minor break out since I was put in accutane in my teens.
I got engaged and knew I wanted perfect skin for my wedding day, so after reading reviews here, decided to purchase the regime to make sure it was perfect for the wedding.
I followed the exact instructions with the BP and then a month …
