Moisturizers - Deciem - The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

A really good unscented day moisturiser for sensitive skin. I have combo skin, and this balances my skin without getting greasy, and works well under makeup. The texture feels thick and fluffy, and kind of breaks apart as you rub it into your skin. I love the small size which is great for travel. Good price, too!

I love this as a night cream in the winter. It's very thick and moisturising, even though I have combo skin it gets dehydrated in winter and needs extra help at night. The deep lavender scent is divine. Great cruelty-free natural product!

I'm always looking for good cruelty-free pressed powder for setting and mattifying my face. Bonus points for a talc-free formula. I found this powder gave a very natural finish, slightly blotting shine but not leaving a powdery look. Disappointingly, it did not keep oil at bay for long, and I found myself constantly repowdering to keep the shine down. It does give a very natural look and …Read more

One side is a felt liner and the other is a gel eyeliner. The felt side was dried out and unusable from the first use, an experience I also had with another of Makeup Revolution's eyeliners. The gel liner at least worked, but it fast became a smeary mess on my eyes. No no no.

I used this all over my face, as I am quite fair with a strong yellow undertone. It leaves a very powdery finish, which I actually don't mind - however, I found the fallout from this really messy and excessive. I tend to use pressed powders to avoid getting loose powder everywhere, so I found that a minus point. The other issue is the cheapness of Essence packaging - this and most other …Read more

This is quite a good liquid eyeliner, nice and opaque with a pointed sponge applicator (my preferred tip). It does tend to go on very wet and can pool at the base of my lashes. I would not repurchase, however, because I realised too late that the formula contains parabens, which I try to avoid.

I tried this in colour 14, a dark taupey-purple/brown. Although I found the formula too dry and patchy, which is a problem with dark colours, I find the Essence line great for trying out new or trendy colours. The line is cruelty free and crazy cheap (at least here in Europe) so I often take a chance with this brand to test out something new.

This is a good hairspray, I just find the scent too strong for me personally. It's the same fragrance as the hair oil (vanilla incense, which I like) but in a spray it is overwhelmingly masculine on me. It does die down after a bit, however at the price of this spray it's not for me.
