This is good stuff. I’ve tried a few different brow products and hadn’t found a great one, mainly because of the colour. I have fair brows that need colour to show up, but a lot of browns come out too red on me. The blonde boy brow is perfect though - I was worried it would be too light but it’s so natural. Only issue is price and packaging - it’s a high cost for very little product. So not quite …Read more

Not for me. I got this in a pack with a refill, and was hopeful it could replace my Bioderma Sensibio as it's cheaper. I use it for my morning cleanse, to remove some makeup when I get home from work, and to tidy up any mistakes I make with my eye makeup. I found it left a slight sticky residue on my skin. I didn't find it as soothing as the bioderma, and the worst thing was it stung my …Read more

Easily the best facial suncream I've tried, and I've tried a few since I wear it every day. This is the first I've found that doesn't leave a greasy film, make me break out or itch. It's probably best for oilier skin as it's high alcohol content, but apart from that it's perfect. I got it very cheap in Japan so hoping I can repurchase in the UK (I think you can …Read more

This is great! I love Clinique power lash, but have been looking for something cheaper. This works - no clumps, defines (I find I have to wiggle the brush for the best results), stays put all day. I also find it easier to remove than the Clinique - it comes off in proper tubes rather than little bits.

I've realised recently I've developed mild rosacea - initially I thought the red bumps were acne, but acne treatments made them worse. Then I saw a pic of rosacea and bingo. This is one of the products that helps- it's super soothing, doesn't exfoliate (my skin hates manual exfoliation) and really calms the redness. I use a clean muslin cloth to remove with warm water …Read more

Really like this. My skin can get red from harsh exfoliants, but this is gentle and fine. I use it a couple of times a week in the evening after cleansing. You put it on dry skin and it kind of balls up, which feels odd. Afterwards my skin is super smooth and has been more even toned since I started using. Would recommend.

Had heard great things about this, so was really excited to get a sample of it free with a magazine.

It was labelled for all skin types, so wasn't too concerned about it not being suitable for my combo, slightly sensitive skin. I see from other reviews that the full size is more clearly labelled for normal skin.

My skin doesn't generally like cream-style hot cloth …

Didn't really like this, although I used it all up as I had nothing else. Pros: nice minty scent, quite invigorating feel, removed flaky skin. Cons: very oily, felt a bit like being covered in lard, didn't clean as well as scrub, salt was scratchy (I definitely prefer sugar scrubs), left a residue on the bath. It was a gift but I see it costs £15, which is way …Read more

This stuff is awesome! I now use it every day - thanks Judy :-)

Tips: get a big jar to keep it in, this makes loads (or I got the quantity wrong, I'm in the UK and we don't use cup measurements). I added the following to my scrub as well as the olive oil and caster sugar: some leftover face oil I wasn't going to use, oil from vitamin e capsules (supposed to be good for …

Definitely an HG product for me. PROs: Opal is an exact match to my skintone, and generally I find it hard to find products that match my pale skin with yellow undertones. The staying power is very good, and it doesn't go cakey especially if used straight over primer or moisturizer. I can use it wherever I have redness and under my eyes (I don't use it all over). It doesn't dry my …Read more
