My HG eye gel. I get up at 3:30 am most mornings, and this leaves my under eye area looking like hell most of the time. Fine lines, slight dehydration, darkness and small milia (caused by over-using a rich eye cream to heal some dry, flaky, red patches of skin that were left behind after 2 bouts of contact dermatitis from other eye creams). But a small amount of this light gel is all it takes to …Read more

The first few times I used this, I got the odd red spot under one eye. So I stopped using it every night, and scaled back to every second night. I do have fine expression lines, but I mainly use this for milia as it has several good exfoliating ingredients (Retinol & Glycolic Acid). My milia aren't large, but I have definitely noticed they are getting smaller and less noticeable as time …Read more

I was a bit hesitant to try this product - my eyes were only slowly starting to recover from a second flare-up of contact dermatitis caused by eye cream use. But I wanted something rich and nourishing to apply at night to help rehydrate the flaky, red, dry patches of skin at the back corners of my eyes, as well as the sometimes scaly patches just under my brown bone.

After a disastrous …

I've only been using this for a few nights, so I may update after a month of use, but here are my first impressions:

Very, very thick, difficult to get out of the jar without a spatula. I bought it from Bobbi Brown online Australia and you would think that it would ship with a spatula, as digging around with your fingers in the jar is incredibly unhygenic. That said, the formula …

The best BB/CC cream I have ever tried. I was in David Jones and had narrowed my choices of a new face cream to Dior's Nude BB Cream or Clinique's Moisture Surge CC Cream after hours of studying reviews on MUA.

I hate foundation as rule - my oily, acne prone skin means most foundations either shine and slide right off or are difficult to apply because they're oil free …

I don't know why there are so many negative reviews for this pore refiner. It's not a silicone product, so it's not going to 'fill in' your pores or make an astounding base for makeup. At $27 AUD it's not the cheapest around, but is certainly a cheaper alternative to something like Dr Brandt's Pore Refiner.

But it certainly does what it says it will …

This is great for a supermarket brand mascara. One tip - wipe as much excess off the wand as you can before you apply it. Leave the first coat to dry for five seconds or so, then add a second coat. If you leave it to dry for too long, it will clump. I found I got noticeably longer, defined lashes that were evenly fanned out and beautiful. A great look for work that wasn't spidery or too fake …Read more

This is my go-to eye gel when other gels or creams irritate my eyes. It's adequate, but only in very, very small amounts. Too much and the under eye area gets over saturated and you have little clear balls of gel peeling off the bottom of your eyes. I get no stinging or redness like other reviews, and it does seem to hydrate the area well enough. It doesn't seem to work for fine lines …Read more

I use this at night after I apply Dior Eye Essential. In just a week, it has great reduced the appearance of my fine lines. I'm only 26, but have fine lines under my eyes already as the eldest of six children. I think you need to use this in conjunction with an eye serum that works for you to get the best out of it.

That said, I think it's a bit too pricey. I have no …

I got this product during the recent Boxing Day/ New Years sales at David Jones in a box set with a black ColourBox eyeliner. Considering it was usually $32, I was happy to pay $20 for $60 worth of product. I was a bit iffy about the bristle brush (I prefer silicone brushes), but was willing to take a chance. I wasn't disappointed - it gave good volume and length with decent definition. But …Read more
