  • Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser
    1.0

    Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser

    Could've been great for oily skin, BUT.

    Full of irritating menthol and menthyl lactate (the ingredients that leave a tingling feeling), also contains irritating plant extracts. Below standard, drying, and overall poor.

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser
    2.0

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser

    Over-drying and over-fragranced, useless!

    This cleanser leaves skin so dry and not clean, I adore the scent of pink grapefruit but fragrance isn't skincare, can't recommend this or the original oil-free acne wash.

  • Biore Steam Activated Cleanser
    2.0

    Biore Steam Activated Cleanser

    If steam was good for skin, why not enjoy your hot shower?.

    Steam isn't good for the skin as it makes capillaries more likely to burst, and excessive steam causes skin to become engorged with water, it also does no service to purge toxins. It contains very drying detergent cleansing agents as well as peppermint and menthol, yuck.

  • Biore Blemish Treating Astringent

    I cannot stand this toner primarily for the fact that the two main ingredients are super drying alcohols and it also contains witch hazel and menthol, there is absolutely nothing good about this product. It's filled with skin irritants that will destroy your skin inside and out once you age.

  • Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub
    2.0

    Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub

    Waxy and irritating!

    Despite the low price and the easy accessibility in drugstores, I cannot recommend this scrub at all. It's so, so waxy and difficult to remove, the exfoliating beads are too weak, and it contains irritating menthol which is bad for the skin inside and out. Horrid.

  • Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser
    4.0

    Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser

    Would've been, could've been, but isn't!

    The Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser would be a great and inexpensive cleanser thats easily accessible in drugstores, apart from the fact that it's icy feeling is from menthol (a known skin irritant). Though it has salicylic acid (great for fighting blemishes), the pH of the product is too high, and its also useless because the cleanser is washed off before the acid is helpful to the skin.

  • Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor

    I love the packaging with the tubes being coloured according to their colour families (pinks, reds? plums and browns), so cute! Love the range of shades, well priced, so creamy and unlike most lipsticks it doesn't make my lips feel like their drying out. Instead of sitting on my lips the colour melts in and stands out as pigmented as can be, beautiful! If only it was long lasting too.

  • Redken All Soft Shampoo
    9.0

    Redken All Soft Shampoo

    True to the name

    I've never used a shampoo that didn't make my hair tangle straight after I used it (before applying conditioner of course) but here it is! I've got extremely thick wavy and fairly damaged coloured hair that's a medium length and it truly works wonders. In conjunction with the conditioner it feels as if my hair is finally growing.

  • Maybelline New York SuperStay 24 Hour Makeup

    I had mixed experiences with this foundation, first of all the shade matching was extremely difficult as most shades are too dark, and all the shades ending in Beige oxidize as orange. I only tried this foundation as a friend has it and it looks stunning on her, I do like the matte/satin finish and the coverage, but I also have issues with the packaging being that it's very messy and the lid is really, really bad for dispensing product.

  • Dior Hypnotic Poison Eau de Toilette

    I was attracted to the Dior Poison range because the names were so sensual and alluring, but I was way off with the fragrance. It's far too heavy, rich and strong for me, and I love a strong scent, not for me at all.
