Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Ethique Bliss Bar

5.0

As a step towards reducing waste, I converted to using this cleanser bar instead of my usual cleanser. It comes as a hard square bar and the packaging is a compostable cardboard box.

It’s easy to use, effective and non-drying. It does become quite soft and needs to be protected from water spray. I have the matching Ethique soap holder which is great for protecting the bar whilst letting …

Liquid - Vapour Organic Beauty - Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation

Well, this one was a surprise. In desperation in a quest for a new foundation that worked for my dry skin I thought I might try a ‘natural’ brand. This product is full of seed oils and I thought it sounded ideal for me but I was worried about texture & lasting power.

It is runny but delivers really reasonable coverage (light to the lighter end of medium). It applies with fingers and …

This foundation is gorgeous. It is absolutely everything I was looking for EXCEPT I cannot get a colour match 😡 it has beautiful light-medium, glowy coverage. It sits beautifully on dry skin and lasts all day. Unfortunately the lightest porcelain shades are really quite yellow and dark. I want them to take both Porcelain and Warm Porcelain and make even lighter shades so I don’t miss out on …Read more

This was IT! After a long search I returned, somewhat ironically to a brand I loyally used 10 years ago. I used to use Photogenic Lumessence but moved away from Lancôme when that foundation was discontinued.

Shade 010 is a great match for my skin. It applies like a dream with fingers or a brush and develops a beautiful silky texture. It has enough coverage to gloss over small spots but …

BB Cream - Yves Saint Laurent - Top Secrets All-In-One BB Cream

Yuck! The smell of this product is revolting. Objectively it’s a nice enough scent and I’d be happy if it was a hand cream but it is so strong and overpowering on the face. The cream was fine but not good enough to make me suffer the smell.

I tried so hard to love this foundation. I can see why it’s a crowd pleaser. I had a generous sample and I even went back to get another sample to try to get myself over the line.

This foundation isn’t really luminous on me and it’s not at all dewy. On my dry skin it sets with a powder finish and looked really flat. It needed a bit of hydrating setting spray to get rid of the powderiness …

Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Extra Dry Skin

I bought this cream on a whim and I love it. I struggle to find creams that are sufficiently hydrating for my dry skin but sit ok under makeup. I did not expect this cream to be enough on its own and it’s not. I layer with the Ordinary Buffet serum and a sunscreen/hydrating primer but it behaves so nicely under foundation. It reminds me a lot of the Dr Dennis Gross gel cream but I think this one …Read more

Liquid - CLARINS - Skin Illusion Natural Hydrating Foundation

5.0

This foundation was such a surprise! I have never really considered Clarins before but this formulation sounded so appealing. I love a light, my skin but better finish. Shade 105 was a great match for my skin also (NC13).

This one applied best with fingers. It has an odd texture - thin but a bit gritty. It did dry down a little as it set and went slightly powdery (this may be because my …

Liquid - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Flawless Finish Foundation

This foundation is cheap and cheerful. I figured, why not try it for the price. I got it in ‘natural’ and it was a decent match for my NC13 skin. It was ok for me but not amazing. It was just a bit too matte and drying on my dry skin. I can see that it would work if my skin was less dehydrated.

One thing I could not get past though was the fragrance. It was so strong and I really did …
