Sukin Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil product review

Review: I've used this for about a week now and it is gorgeous. I mainly use it at night time and put a little more on that probably is required so my skin can really benefit from it's nourishing ingredients. The smell is wonderful and almost the best part of applying this product. The scent of a product is very important to me as I won't put things on my face that I don't like the smell of! The oil absorbs quickly and makes the skin feel soft and moisturised. You wake up with gorgeous skin that is not as reactive! I've...

SKINPRO by AHAVA Calming Facial Moisturizer product review

Review  I have been trying this for only two days and already I am IMPRESSED. It has reduced the redness and irritation on my face considerably and keeps it moisturised throughout the day.   When first applied, it does feel a little heavy but it absorbs quickly. It's very soothing and I love the fact that it lasts all day as I do long hours.  I paid about $45 for a 50mL tube but I would much rather pay for quality products that do what they claim rather than a cheap product that does not.  I am going to keep using...

Dermalogica ultracalming skin kit product review

My review This is a wonderful kit for reactive skin. I have had trouble trying to find skin care for my combination skin which is sensitive and reactive at the same time! I even react to natural and organic skin care. I can't really choose a favourite because I love all the products in the kit.

Product information This kit for sensitized skin contains products to help relieve itching, redness, and reactive skin flare-ups associated with sensitive and sensitized skin. Contains...

Geoskincare - Hydra Gel product review

Please note this product has been discontinued. My experience This must be one of my favourite facial gel / moisturisers! It is so light and has a fantastic cooling effect as it is in a gel consistency. Great for an under make up base / primer and for using with mineral foundation. It's also great for using during the summer months when the weather is hotter and you want something lighter on your skin. Great for oily / acne prone skin types. Description It is a triple action hydrating gel, enriched with organic aloe vera, which infuses and restores the...
