Fantastic product. For some strange reason my skin has become more sensitive as i get older (i am 34). For example, after i shave my legs, even if i use a natural lotion (Weleda calendula lotion i'm looking at you!) my legs sting and then get progressively itchier as the night progresses. Perhaps it is natural fragrances like linalool, a citrus derived ingredient which i think a lot of …Read more

One of the best cleansers out there and i have tried sooo many! Foams up enough to wash away daily grime and makeup includiing mascara (without stinging my eyes) while leaving my skin soft and glowy. My only gripe is that being jurlique it is expensive so if i find myself alternating between this and kiehl's ultra facial cleanser which is my other fave, if you love kiehl's ultra this …Read more

I'm sorry to have to write a negative review for this as i really wanted to like it but i can honestly say i have nothing good to say about it. I find it really strips my skin of moisture without removing eye makeup and stings my eyes. There are so many new formulas of foaming cleansers out there that do a fantastic job of removing makeup while leaving your skin soft that i think this …Read more

Some advice for those actually using this product as a nipple ointment, i would recommend this over the increasingly popular lucas's paw paw ointment as a midwife advised me that the fermented paw paw can contain microbes and other things which under normal usage is totally fine but when b/feeding it may make your nipples more prone to infection. This is really important if you've …Read more

Brilliant, brilliant product. Hands down this is the best facial sunscreen and moisturiser i have used. After running through a huge variety of sunscreens from expensive to cheap, i have finally found one that is perfect, and as luck would have it, it's one of the cheapest! Over the last year or so i have tried Clinique advanced protection face cream spf 30 (slight grainy feel, not …Read more

I bought this to use as a face cream after running out of the Weleda Almond moisture cream (which i also loved), but quite frankly the tubes of most Weleda moisturisers are TINY and i really appreciated the fact that this comes in a 50ml tube, not 30ml. I find it excellent as a facial moisturiser but be aware that it has a bit of lanolin in it which is a godsend for my sometimes dry, sometimes …Read more

As far as i'm concerned this is the original and the best pimple treatment around. TP TTO is the brand found in every pharmacy and supermarket in Australia, it is 100% pure and always fresh and potent, the dark glass jar is also a bonus. I use it straight from the bottle and rub into a pimple with a clean finger and while it doesn't make the pimple disappear it stops them getting …Read more

This is the first OPI nail polish that has made me understand what all the fuss is about. I was turned off OPI when i bought the shade Matched Luggage and it turned into a gluggy, horrible mess in the bottle and on my nails. Swearing i would never use OPI again i threw in the towel after reading the reviews on here and bought this shade and i'm so glad i did! I was after a retro bright …Read more

Beware girls with pale skin wearing this shade, i just can't do this one! I think it would look fantastic on medium skinned toned girls and darker, but on me it blends in too much with my hand colour and the grey tone just makes me look pasty. Even a shade lighter or darker would probably work well, it's a bummer though coz i love this shade!

Oh my this polish is gorgeous! I have gone through many brands of nail polish and generally found brands like OPI and Essie hit and miss in terms of quality and/or color payoff so i thought i'd finally bite the bullet and buy Chanel. So far it has lived up to my rather high expectations due to it's expense. The colour is a rich, vampy burgundy red that i think is a nice compromise …Read more
