The product: This facial oil contains sweet almond oil, plum oil and blackthorn extract to moisturize, soothe, nourish and clean sensitive/delicate skin. It doesn't contain any fragrance, preservatives, mineral oil or essential oils.

My opinion: A truly great multi-purpose product that can be used as a face & eye MU remover (especially waterproof), undereye area …

This lip balm is part of the Eucerin Sensitive Skin line and provides intensive lip care to dry, chapped lips. My lips have a tendency for dryness all-year long not to mention the cold winters (the temperature can be even -20 C / -4 F where I live). This is one of the most emollient and nourishing lip balms I've ever tried. Apart from using it during the day, I also apply it as an overnight …Read more

This is part of Eucerin's Sensitive Facial Skin line. According to the Eucerin website, this eye MU remover is oil, fragrance & color-free. It is suitable for contact lens wearers, has the same PH as tears and contains dexpanthenol & glycerin.

My opinion: I give this a HG status because it not only removes non-waterproof eye MU very well but it's the only eye …

Launched in 2007, this gloss promises lips with "a soft, creamy shine and a delicate contour" in five 'nude' no-shimmer shades:

1) Vanilla Nude
2) Cacao Nude
3) Coral Nude
4) Rosy Nude
5) Caramel Nude

The formula includes arctic lingonberry seed oil which supposedly keeps lips moisturized. The gloss comes in a twist-brush applicator …

This is a great wearable shade of red- think candied apple red. This is the first red I ever tried on my lips because I always thought I can't find a red which looks good and classy on me. Well, this is a great way to wear red because it's sheer enough and gives your lips this "I just had some candied apple" look. So, I would recommend this for the faint at heart when it …Read more

I am amazed at the results!!! I use organic acv and green tea (1 part acv and 3 parts tea) after a reviewer's suggestion (in this way the acv is diluted and the tea takes much of the smell away). I'm using this three times a week in the evenings (I put some on a cotton disc and pat it on my face gently avoiding the eye area). It works wonders keeping blackheads and zits at bay - even …Read more

This is the best moisturizer I've ever tried. It moisturizes, sinks right in, feels fresh and does not become greasy during the day. The best thing is that this has never broken me out. I have even made a tinted moisturizer with a pea size amoutn of this one and two pumps of Biotherm Light! fdnt and it has worked out beautifully! Definitely a staple but I remove one lippie because the …Read more

Great blush! A flattering peachy rose shade with a very slight hint of shimmer... It's sheer but the color can be built up and it's lasting power is very good. The packaging is really bad but for this color and blush quality I don't care anymore....
For reference: light to medium olive complexion, dark brown hair, light brown eyes

Dissapointing quality....'No Pigment' should be the name for Rimmel e/s.... It's even hard using these as a wash-you have to somehow 'scrape' the e/s and pack it on the lid for a wash- My advice: Use the money you'd spend on Rimmel's e/s to buy the blushes of the line instead...they are so great I can't believe how Rimmel blew it with the e/s...

A great beige nude shade with a 'lustrous' effect. i don't see any mauve or pink undertones...just a sheer, beige nude. The thing is...it doesn't show up much as a lipstick as some would expect but as a lovely YLBB shade. I like the texture and the quality and it looks great with more 'done' eyes. I compared this with another nude of mine -Rimmel's Birthday …Read more
