Skincare - Face - Deciem - The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

I use this every night after niacinamide (as I believe they boost each other's effects, or some such). Took about 4 weeks to show serious results - acne scars fading away, tone evening out, and skin just altogether looking brighter and better.
Highly recommended.

Very happy with this primer. Holds makeup together, doesn't get greasy through the day, and (for me at least) doesn't pill. I have used primers that are twice as expensive but provide half the quantity of this one - this not only beats them in performance but is also astonishingly priced.
Highly recommended and will repurchase.

I really wanted to like this, but it did nothing for my acne, and dehydrated my skin terribly. the texture of my skin is now rough and dry whereas it's usually soft, even if I have breakouts. I suppose the tea tree line is too harsh for me. Definitely would not repurchase and would suggest any potential user try a sample for a few days before making a purchase of the full size.

I really like Milani products so am disappointed to review this primer as a definite no-no. It is expensive for just 20ml of product (over in a jiffy) and doesn't 'hold' foundation in place. Within a few hours I am greasy and shiny and might as well have used an inexpensive moisturiser under my makeup instead of a primer.
Would not repurchase.

Your skin but better!
Can't believe that a product like this exists at this price point. I have eschewed MAC and most expensive brands since going cruelty-free. Milani came highly recommended by bloggers and makeup artistes on YouTube, so gave it a shot.
Goes on like a dream. Very light finish and very good coverage - how do they do it? And it lives up to its promise of being a …

Excellent coverage, lovely clean finish, but boy does it transfer - if you dab at your face with so much as a finger, it comes off on to it. That's my only grouse. I set it with a pressed powder to mitigate this. Otherwise another reliable MAC product.

I almost didn't buy this given the negative reviews here, but then thought that I'd try it anyway since it's not expensive. I'm glad I did. It really works for me (I use Light Beige on my NC42 skin) - a very simple, clean, blurred finish (as promised) that lasts through the workday. Has not broken me out so far. At this price point I highly recommend it.
