This is a very good gentle face cleanser, much gentler than other popular brands. Cetaphil is still a little too drying for my post-Accutane skin (I know...) but it does cleanse very well. The lack of lather is confusing, but there is a trick to making it work.

If you want to use this to remove light makeup but don't want to double cleanse, apply this directly onto skin BEFORE …

May/16/2016

This is my holy grail cleanser for Accutane and post-Accutane skin. I've tried this and Cetaphil, and I find prefer QV because it cleanses better, it is more moisturising, and it lathers somewhat.

The texture of the QV face wash is interestingly creamy and it lathers too, which I just enjoy seeing. It cleans sufficiently if I'm just wearing moisturiser, but if I'm …

Really lovely 'my skin but better' foundation. This foundation adheres to the skin like nothing else, providing a blurring effect without looking like a layer on top of your skin. The texture is runny, silicone-y liquid; I've tried applying this with foundation brushes and fingers, and both worked fine.

I think this would suit slightly dry to slightly oily skin types. In …

I'm giving this lotion 4/5 despite it not being ideal for my skin. It is a truly nourishing, light, spreadable lotion for dry, dehydrated skin. It sinks in instantly and leaves skin soft without any residue (if your face is greasy after applying this, it's because you used too much). Bonus: a little goes a long way, so if you need hydration without frills, definitely check this …Read more

Seriously great for toning bleached blonde hair. I'm Asian so my hair colour throws a lot of warmth, but this takes care of brassiness while leaving hair super silky. I use it every 1-2 weeks on hair that's been clarified (to prep for maximum absorption) and towel-dried, and I have used it way more than the 6 applications listed on the bottle. I have medium to long hair, so this is …Read more

I'm giving this three stars because I have mixed feelings about this.

Good range of shades available but colour selection is difficult. Don't even think about trying to match yourself using swatches online - I wasted a whole lot of money by doing that. For reference, I bought the shade Honey Medium based on descriptions, but it was too dark for me. I have Asian medium-tan …

Good product but the packaging is AWFUL. Applying this product is so frustrating: the liquid comes out in a powerful, narrow stream (WHY?) instead of a spray that distributes it evenly through your hair, which is the opposite of ideal. You can feel the pressure of the stream even when spraying from a distance. It's really hard distributing it evenly.

The positives: I needed a …

Holy grail alert!!!! I have been using this concealer for months. It's the only one that I've found that lasts on my face from morning to evening. To give you an idea of how oily I am, my nose is like a disco ball after one and a half hours. Yep. I always get oil breakthrough no matter what primers and potions I use, so most foundations and concealers just don't last long on …Read more

Amazing concealer! Absolutely love it. Super creamy and pigmented. Blends easily. The packaging looks nice but some people might care about the doe's foot applicator -- I don't think it's THAT unhygienic, and the wand makes up for it in convenience.

I use this for face and undereyes. The finish is wonderful -- if you find that it looks a bit cakey under your eyes, you …

Looooooooove this foundation. It feels very light, not noticeable at all. Wearing it, you sort of glow softly, without looking like you've been at a highlighter, and you will never get an odd make up line at your chin, no matter how much you brush on. As a mineral foundation, it's also a physical sunscreen (around SPF 15 I believe, but it really depends on how much you apply) which …Read more
