I am loving this lipstick. I have it in Exquisite, which is definitely browner (slightly orangey) than it is pink (I was hoping for a Dolce Vita replacement but it's not as pink as Dolce Vita and more pigmented). I am fair-medium skinned (currently tanned) and cool toned, and the brown is not too warm for my skin. The colour is sheer enough so the lipstick doesn't stand out on my face …Read more

Beautiful packaging, removes makeup. Those are about the only positives. This product has a heavy feel and greasy smell. I know it's an oil, but other cleansing oils I've used are botanical, smell beautiful and don't feel like they add an extra coat to the skin. This is based on mineral oil and it feels like it needs a clean afterwards. While I was using this, I had very bad …Read more

You know when you get that awful painful feeling under the skin and you just know within hours it will start to look red and transform to a large bump? This treatment actually gets rid of the pain and swelling straight away, and starts flattening the pimple. The only downside to this is that it is quite hard to apply - especially in the morning, under make up. It dries and hardens quickly and …Read more

I love this! If you've got a lot of blemishes you want to hide, this gives you a whole new complexion. You don't need a lot to remove discolouration and redness, and if you want to hide large pimples, you don't need an extra concealer. Just blend a few dots after covering the main areas. Although this is thicker than foundations I normally buy, I find myself not using it all …Read more

This pretty little pump bottle (which has a clever base that moves up as the product runs out so don't miss out on every little drop) contains a lovely light moisturiser that purports to help skin that is suffering both blemishes and early signs of ageing. I don't know whether it works for the latter but it does seem to keep my pimples at bay. It has a refreshing orange smell and is a …Read more

I have bought this masque so many times and it is so effective I don't know if I will ever need to look elsewhere. Frustratingly I still have a lot of breakouts and get medium-large pimples around my mouth, chin and forehead. I use this once a week and my pimples are noticeably smaller and less inflamed afterwards. My skin feels calmer and clearer. While the masque is on, I can really …Read more

I am so glad I found this foundation. I was in the market for something more affordable after spending over $100 on my last foundation (and not looking any better!) This foundation is so easy to apply - it quickly evens out my skin tone and hides blemishes well. Once it dries, my skin looks natural and glowing. I tend to be a fan of tinted moisturisers and this has the light feeling of one …Read more

I absolutely love this. A slightly thicker consistency than Dermalogica Active Moist, which makes it more ideal for winter. The tube doesn't leak any product either which Active Moist always does (annoyingly). It has a very slight citrus smell which is pleasant. I don't know about it's acne-reducing qualities but I don't think it makes it worse. It feels like a good quality …Read more

Like the previous reviewer, I wish I could give this a 3.5. I really wanted to love this. On the positive side, it is very nourishing for the dry patches on my cheeks and is relatively affordable. I think it actually makes my skin glow and appear healthier. Unfortunately though this has caused my skin to break out quite noticeably for the past few weeks - I've waited for a while so I …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat

Does exactly what it says it will: adds shine, dries super quick and stops chipping. without insta-dry my nail polish normally lasts a day or two before it starts chipping. With insta-dry it looks great for over a week and even then it doesn't really chip, it just starts to want to peel off at the edges.
