I think this is a decent product but you won't see miraculous results. At the same time, it doesn't have any of the side effects of perhaps more effective ingredients like hydroquinone. It has a good texture and is absorbed easily. Nice packaging although I wish The Ordinary had some variation in their bottles. I have so many products that it gets quite confusing.

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%

I really wanted to like this product. So much so that I bought an extra tube and also some Ferulic acid to go with it.

Unfortunately, as wonderful as The Ordinary products might be with regards to price and ingredients, many of them just don't absorb into the skin. And this product is the worst offender. It is super greasy - the kind of grease that you have to scrub off your …

Skincare - Body - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - DIY Tea Tree Oil Scalp and Body Treatment

When I was an acne prone college student, I used to use the Body Shop tea tree oil range but it did nothing for me.

Cut to being 41 and as of 6 months ago I still got acne on the regular. The only thing that stopped it on my face was a salicylic acid product. However I still get it on my back and even my ears so I have started using tea tree oil on these areas as a preventive measure …

This product is so cheap, it's really a no brainer. I have maybe 2B/C curly hair and sometimes I just like it longer which it can't be if it's so curly.

My hair felt light and comfortable when I used this. HOWEVER, it was even frizzier than before. So it felt good but didn't look good.

I have no issue with the packaging - unlike some of the other reviews …

OK so I was really so excited about this sunscreen so much that I ordered it through a friend coming down from the US. I'm a regular sunscreen user and am still to find my HG.

The previous sunscreen I was using was the worst in terms of white cast. I guess the relief with this sunscreen was that there is barely any white cast and that disappears in seconds even on my dark skin …

UPDATE:

I fund it was something else that was causing the inflammation - sandalwood oil that I mix with coconut oil and use to remove make up and sunscreen. However, still this product did nothing for me.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:

I got two small sachet samples of this and somehow managed to stretch each one to 3 uses (I have a small face). Although vitamin C …

I have mixed feelings about this product. It provides really light hold and has a pleasant smell. I also like the novelty factor in that it looks like water in the bottle but when it comes out it becomes a mousse.

But the fact is that the hold is really really light. You need to use quite a lot to get any effect. On the plus side, it doesn't leave my hair feeling dry. In fact, my …

I bought this online where there was NO indication that it is tinted. I somehow imagined it to be colourless like other primers. The result is that it is too light for me and I have to mix it with something tinted so I don't look like a ghost. It also has a shiny cast which dissipates a little with time. Apart from that, it didn't break me out.

I can't speak for its SPF …

I really wanted this to be a Holy Grail product. Luckily - as I'm not a big user of skin make-up and I wasn't sure about the correct shade for me, I ordered a couple of samples n various shades off CRC ( a great site for this purpose - wish they had more of a sample collection).

It's thick and kinda hard to apply. But worst of all, it doesn't seem to cover these …

This product is just wow. If I lived in a cool dry climate I would wear this everyday.

It gives some serious but realistic glow (not shine). And although I am always a bit wary about using products like these because I suspect they would block my pores, this one doesn't.

One negative is that the packaging is not great. Sometimes the pump just doesn't work for some …
