sHamilton’s review of La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

Already on my second tube of efficlar duo I am pleased to report that the lotion has positively reduced/prevented/dried-up any blemishes without aggravating my super sensitive skin (no mean feat). Specifically, I find that an extra blob dabbed on a targeted area overnight boosts it’s ability to banish the blemish. Now, although pleased with the results so far, I am holding out hope for the longer term potential of this La Roche Posay offering to clear up my skin (dare I say completely).


Rachel32’s review of the Clarins Everlasting Foundation SPF15

This foundation is amazing, not only have I found my perfect shade in sand but the quality is very good. It really does last the day and gives skin a radiant glow with a medium coverage. Application is easy, blends beautifully with brush, sponge or fingers. Would not buy anything else.


louisejyun’s review of the  La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Light Intensive Rehydrating Skincare

Best hydrating skincare ever. best hyaluronic acid-based lotion too! GREAT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN!

Function: HYDRATES, and plumps skin. without breaking out, or irritating the skin
Suitable for: combination skin, younger skin,
Used during: summer (day and night) and winter as a day cream

I love how this cream gets instantly absorbed into the skin, the packaging is a pump, so there’s no worry for contamination, or premature deterioration of the cream.

It really HYDRATES and quench the thirst of your skin. I have been using Kiehl’s ultra facial cream which i thought was a miracle to me. until i met La Roche Posay, at a fraction of the price, it works even better as i can sometimes feel my skin abit plumped (hyaluronic acid)

****great for SENSITIVE SKIN!
I used Kiehls as a night cream during the winter ; BUT when I have PMS, and during my period, my skin gets really sensitive… and Kiehls really sting my skin so much, sometimes i even have to wash it off when i can’t bear the sting!

LRP hydraphase NEVER stinged my skin during PMS, or no matter how bad my skin condition is (sunburnt etc)

HIGHLY RECOMMEND for younger skin! i have recommended this to my friend who has acne but also has dry skin (weird i know) and she loves it!!!! i think she mentioned that her acne doesn’t flare up so much and her skin is also less red than before!

For MATURED skin: my mom (55 y/o with combination skin) uses it as a day cream, and she sometimes use it as night cream too but with a serum beneath it.


AK89’s review of the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil

This is my favorite oil! It is a dry oil, so it does not feel sticky when you put it on. It does the job wonderfully, it keeps different parts of my body moisturised and it gives a glow. I especially love to use it on my shoulders for a glow. I use this oil on my arms, dry dry elbows and in the end of my hair. I’ve used it on my legs a few times to get the healthy glow .. On top of this I am a sucker for the packaging, I think it looks soo good and it screams luxury -and it definitely is a luxury oil of great quality.
I can not recommend it enough and I would love to buy the shimmer one from Nuxe next time, so that I can get a glow next summer 🙂


reaton290’s review of the Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation

I require a full coverage foundation and had been using Estee Lauder Doublewear for quite some months. However, my skin broke out terribly! I was so disappointed as the coverage was fantastic. After a traul through the internet, I came across this product. I thought it couldn’t harm for the fantastic price. WOW! I LOVEEEEE this product! I recommend it to all my friends!
So when it arrived, I applied it the same as the doublewear (with a primer and a brush) and not once did I reapply the makeup. It stayed put on all my oily areas and the coverage was fantastic. Not only that, but my skin cleared up massively. I now bulk buy this product ( I go through about one bottle in 5 weeks – wearing it everyday) as I just can’t recommend it enough.
