Cleansers - MAC Cosmetics - Cleanse Off Oil

May/25/2013

Where to start? I have oily skin which can be breakout prone when certain products are used. I wear sunscreen on a daily basis and know that it is important to remove every single bit of it at night, hence why I first started using an oil cleanser. I previously used the DHC Olive oil based cleanser but found this a bit too thick for my liking - it felt like I was rubbing straight olive oil on …Read more

For many years I used Everyday Minerals products for foundation, powder and blush, but eventually I switched to liquid foundations and haven't really ever looked back! I recently moved and have yet to bring all my makeup with me to my new place so every time I go back to visit my parents, I bring a few more items with me (that way the OH won't realise just how big my collection is as it …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

May/12/2013

I have been intrigued by this product since it came out, but not enough to buy it. I received a free sample in the most recent Elle magazine in the UK and immediately tried it when I got home. I have to say, I will definitely be buying this when the sample has dried up! This literally multiplies my lashes as I brush it on. It volumises, lengthens and just makes my lashes appear fuller than …Read more

I have used a variety of "brightening" concealers for the under eye area (The Body Shop, Clarins and Collection 2000 to name a few). However this one is probably the best for me personally. The shade 1.0 matches my skin tone perfectly (NC15) and covers my moderately dark circles very well. It doesn't crease during the day and lasts till I take it off at night. I apply this …Read more

This has to be the best face scrub I have ever used! It's scrubby bits are so fine and don't irritate no matter how much you use. Yet it is still very effective and my skin is left glowing and so smooth after use. It has a slight bubblegum scent which took a little time to get used to but it's not really a problem. I use this once a week and the effects are felt for a while, so …Read more

I have oily/combination skin, where my t-zone turns into a greasy mess after a couple of hours. Plus I work in a hospital and never get a chance to sit down! So when I say this product works, it works! You only need 3 sprays on your face before any makeup, apply foundation and powder and then 3 sprays after and I'm done for the day! I only need to blot about 6 hours after applying and …Read more

INFO: Oily/Combination skin, hormonal breakouts only, can be sensitive.

I am halfway through my second bottle of this face wash and think I can give an honest review now - I love this cleanser! It may be soap free but it does lather up quiet well. I use the smallest amount, not even a pea sized blob and it is enough to leave my skin feeling clean and refreshed. This cleanser …

Today is the first day of me trying this mascara and I am in LOVE! I tried this without curling my lashes and I have a defined curl after one coat! I have average length lashes I would say that have a tendency to clump together when I apply mascara but this gives perfectly defined lashes. And the length...it's amazing. I cannot rave enough about it! This is comparable to the effects I …Read more
