I've been using either the Beauty Blender cleaning liquid or the Real Techniques liquid brush cleaner to clean my makeup brushes and sponges (Beauty Blenders) for ages. This time I decided to give this cheap brush shampoo a go and wow. This cleaned my brushes and Beauty Blenders SO much faster and better than the other products I've tried. Particularly my Beauty Blenders - I don't …Read more

For a cheap mascara, it's OK. It doesn't flake, it separates and the colour is fine. However it added zero volume for me - just gave me darker, slightly spindly and spiky lashes. The major problem though was that it actually undid my curl. I curl my lashes just before applying mascara. With this product, my lashes go back to straight immediately - all day they stick right out in front …Read more

I should have listened to the reviews here. Hopefully other reviewers with sensitive skin will see the repetition in some of these reviews like mine and avoid this product.

Like others, I LOVE the Almond Shower Oil. As someone with sensitive skin and KP this was a life changer that I have continued to use for years. When I popped in-store to purchase a refill, I was successfully talked …

Absolute HG bath product. I'm allergic to a lot of artificial things, so I can't believe I've found a product that smells this unbelievably good and is natural!!!!

Over and above the amazing smell, this does wonders for my skin. My skin tends to be on the dry side and a bathe in this stuff totally fixes that. It's also amazing for exfoliation! After a long soak in …

I've long been in search of a body moisturiser that:
- is not greasy;
- does not have added artificial nasties;
- does not clog my skin;
- smells OK;
- is affordable;
- doesn't soak in so fast that you have to use a tonne just to get to all your skin.
It turns out this is a very difficult list to satisfy.

But this is definitely an answer …

Brand: Bellamer Botanical Skin Care

Now in my mid to late 20s, I'm trying to find a good neck cream and eye cream to try to put off what will inevitably occur. I have sensitive skin and a sensitive purse, so this was a difficult task. Whilst I swear by Ella Bache for my skin care and have for a long time, I'm slightly allergic to their eye cream and neck cream products so I …

This is a lovely alternative to bubbly bath products. Whilst I do love a good bubble bath, there's something a bit luxurious and fancy about a smooth, milk bath. Very Cleopatra.

This product didn't really smell like much but that's OK - I always use a nice candle when I have a bath. The packet recommended 5 scoops (it comes with a wooden scoop) in a warm bath - that …

I have quite sensitive skin and I suffer from Keratosis Pilaris (KP) (not too badly) which is sort of bumpy, goosy skin on the backs of my arms and a little on my thighs that can look red on my arms particularly. As all KP girls know, this means that I really need to exfoliate to unclog the pores, but 99% of exfoliators inflame the skin (common KP problem). KP also means you have dry skin. So …Read more

I'm amazed by this product. And it's even so cheap!! I picked it up for $9AUD at Mecca.

Over the last year I've been battling rough feet. I use a foot file in the shower every 2nd morning to try to combat it, which always used to work, but no more. Maybe this is another one of those small problems that just starts to set in in your late 20s... :( I've even tried …

I think I may have finally found my HG every-day lip balm.

INTENDED USE: I use a lip-balm/gloss most days in the office when I have just basic makeup on (i.e. no foundation). When I have a full face, I wear lipstick. So a lip-balm needs to look natural (not to shiny, not too pigmented) so that it balances the rest of my basic makeup. But I do want a slight healthy pigment. The balm …
