I'm 25 and have combination skin/oily t-zone, for my job as a nurse getting up even earlier to apply 'proper' make up is not happening... I too like some people was a bit skeptical about coverage but i found it to be very good - light weight but enough coverage for during the day and worn with a little matte powder I didn't have to wipe away any shine all day! …Read more

Same price/more expensive than MAC foundations and not as good quality. I have combination skin which does get a little oily but this foundation make it worse! By the end of the day i would have none left when taking off my makeup, plus i have small acne scars (not anything major) and this didn't cover it. Disappointed since I love most benefit products

I was previously using Benefit Oxygen Wow which was dreadful on my combination skin. This is the best Matte foundation I have ever used... No shine to wipe away all day!! Does soak into pores a little but provides full coverage and does so without being cakey.. Perfect. I do however agree, it does soak into fine lines I never noticed I had without make up!

This has just been launched in the UK about a month ago and its called 'Bee Strong'. It's on offer in most places as it's new out so I recommend to stock up! Am on my 2nd bottle of conditioner, alongside using the shampoo and have also used the mask available.

Good for colour damaged, frizzy hair - I have bleached highlights and have wavey/curly hair. Conditioner …

Lotions/ Creams - Palmer's - Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Skin Smoothing Lotion with Alpha / Beta Hydroxy & Shea Butter

In the UK this product can be quite hard to find - all supermarkets, boots and superdrug stock the original cocoa butter but is normally only the really large stores that stock this. The smell is a bit different but I like it, sort of reminds me of the sea/seaweed but in a good way! Very smoothing and like others have said, great after shaving legs. Would definitely buy again when feeling flush …Read more

Love this mascara! Goes on nicely and can build it up with more strokes to go from day time to more dramatic night time look! The only downside is that if you cake it on too much you can go from luscious long lashes to spiders legs quite quickly so took a couple of goes to know when to stop! Bit pricey but unless you're using it every day then lasts a long time! Found my favourite evening …Read more

As some other reviewers are saying, the smell is awful with the added q10 lotion. Very disappointed as love the 'usual' palmers cocoa butter smell but this is has a horrible added scent that stays all day. I passed it onto my mum incase it was just my nose but she also found it the same and even had a shower half way through one day to get rid of it as no perfume or other scented …Read more

I got a mini version of this in a benefit set for Christmas. I do really like however, if you want to use it as a blusher you have to layer it on if you have a medium skin tone or darker (I'm blonde but my parents both have dark hair and my mum has 'Spanish' looking skin so in the winter I get paler but tan quite dark in the summer)

I wouldn't use this in the …
