My skin - combination, easily clogged.
This is a wonderful all in one product - does not smell like sunscreen, no white cast, not greasy and does seem to improve the wear of powder foundation. Reasonable price 34 euro for 50ml.
I previously did not use any moisturiser in the am, as they all made my skin oily in a few hours. If I needed sunscreen I would use Shiseido Anessa but the …

This is very expensive and whilst it feels like its very natural ingredients-wise, it is just not as good as my beloved Terax Crema. Its a light yellow creamy consistency with a light rose scent which is not overpowering.
I am not adverse to spending on my hair but even this is too much for me, its just not worth the $$$

Smells herbal fresh and cleanses well, good for normal/oily skins. Very nice in the morning. Probably overpriced but it is Aesop. I love the aesthetic and smells of their products. ery nice in the morning.

I had such hopes for OH products, but they are just too highly fragranced. This smells like sweet oranges which is nice to eat but not put on the face. The texture is very nice for oily skin, its light and non oily. The truth oil is even worse, thats fish oil mixed with sweet orange. I love vit c and thought these would be my summer serums as I like Kiehls in the winter. But the smell just …Read more

This product seems to work to make my (normally acne prone and combo) skin glowy and smooth. After a month it also seems to have lightened my scars. I have had success with L-ascorbic acid before (an ultraceuticals product which costs twice as much) so that ingredient is the key. I believe this contains lots of silicone which I am afraid of breaking me out but I seem to be ok after a months …Read more

Chanel seems to just work for me when it comes to foundation and powder. My skin is combination, very dry in the winter and quite oily in summer. In winter I use this without powder and it settles into a beautiful satin (not dewy) finish. It is very long lasting. In summer I set with loose powder and it requires a small blot in the afternoon but thats it. The texture is almost gel-like but …Read more

This is like a more "holding" version of bumble brilliantine which I also love. The scent is green and does dissipate. It provides moisture with the shea butter and camellia oil. I scrunch into my ends and outer layers for shape and to give some softness. The pot is clinical, though I prefer tubes.
Not sticky, it's neck and neck with the brilliantine and I have stocks of both.

I am a fan of pre-wash oils for hair and this is just divine. It smells beautiful and using it feels so luxurious. I paid an arm and a leg for this in malaysia as a treat and boy was it worth it. I use about 8-10 pumps on outer layers and ends of hair, leave it on for as long as possible (usually 30min - 2h) then wash out. It certainly makes hair feel soft and silky. I think the bottle has …Read more

I have repurchased the 500mL 3 times now over 5 years. I use up one, try other stuff for a few months then go back to this. This is very rich and overuse or not rinsing properly does weigh hair down but every week or so is great and does make a difference to the condition of hair. I have straight, layered asian hair, coarse and porous.
Aveda is not cheap but buying the large sizes makes …
