Mostly hype.

Highly overrated as a moisturiser.

Its fifth ingredient is alcohol which is dehydrating.

It also contains lavendar oil which is a known to be cytotoxic (kills skin cells on contact)

Smells amazing. But 5 mins after you apply it hands are straight back to dry. There are way more effective moisturisers out there.

Packaging also …

This was a nice mask, nothing super spesh though. I had plumper skin with less visible pores afterwards. I noticed no reduced redness and it didn't seem to draw out impurities. I'm not sure if they're still marketing it as a hydrating mask as someone else below mentioned but I would agree that it's not moisturising at all but it hasn't dried out my skin either which some …Read more

love it love it love it. have it in #02 med and i could not be without it. it makes me look fresh, young, awake, alive, glowy - all the good stuff. some people say it is 'cakey' but i think its just the waxy creamy consistency of it but I sweep my eye area with a kabuki brush before i leave the house and it seems to stop any creasing or gathering in fine lines & im pretty sure no …Read more

Love, love, love Sukin products. Always safe, fresh and effective. This moisturiser is great in the pump bottle, I bought the clicky top bottle once and it sucked! This is just a nice gentle moisturiser, your skin can breathe after applying unlike some thick, oily creams and my skin feels plump and hydrated afterwards. I also cant get enough of their clay mask, its wonderful.

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Face and Body Foundation

Overrated and overpriced. I saw this in a magazine as the #1 foundation in the history of the world once (slight exaggeration) so naturally I had to try it. Pretty disappointing. It provided decent coverage. It smelt very strongly of chemicals/metals. It was quite oily and slick on. It also kind of curdled after 6 months or so. The make up became runny with chunks, did not leave it in sun or heat …Read more

Scrubs - The Body Shop - Vitamin C Glow Boosting Microdermabrasion Exfoliator

A little harsh. Im all for removing dead skin and trying to banish those stubborn blackheads on my nose! But I felt like this was a little destructive on my skin. It feels like rubbing sandpaper against it. I noticed several broken capillaries on my cheeks, chin & nose after using, displaying that it was just too rough for my skin to take. Still love BodyShop products though!

Im nearly finished on my first bottle which has lasted seven months - yes I wear it most days too! And I really love it. I love make up that you don't notice and this one is the Queen of invisibility. It gives light coverage and it is layerable for a medium coverage. I use it with my benefit erase paste concealer though and it is dreamy. The foundation goes on so light and I really feel like …Read more

Wore it for 3 DAYS and had the worst break out of my life. Thick, hard, pustules covered my cheeks for about six weeks (after I stopped using). I tried everything to get rid of them, 3xweekly exfoliation, stringent cleansing routine, peel, mask, you name it, it just took time to clear this disgusting break out, compliments of MaxFactor! If there were one product I could tell everyone to NEVER …Read more
