Neutrogena T.gel Therapeutic Shampoo

Neutrogena T.gel Therapeutic Shampoo
Price: 12.49$
Available: at Priceline, Chemist warehouse, supermarkets and selected pharmacies
I bought it after the consultation of pharmacist because I had very bad dry flaky scalp. It comes in transparent plastic bottle with cap. It has very strong smell which is very unpleasant and overpowering. It does not leather well and on the bottle I did not find instruction of use, and I do not know after how long I should rinse it from my hair. It just stated that rinse after few minutes which is quite confusing because it is a medicated shampoo, it should be clearly stated the amount of time. I used it regularly but not impressed with the result, it just make a very little difference in my scalp, overall after finishing one bottle I still had dandruff and itchy flaky scalp. Then I consulted my GP and he recommend an other shampoo for me. I do not recommend it for those who have very serious problem of dandruff and have sensitive scalp
I think this shampoo is Ideal for those who have mild dandruff it will protect them from serious scalp problems but once you have developed severe dandruff, you should look for some other medicated shampoo
My rating3/5

L'oreal Paris Nutri lift Gold Anti Aging Serum Foundation in Golden Beige

L'oreal Paris Nutri lift Gold Anti Aging Serum Foundation

Available: Priceline, big W, Target, selected pharmacies and supermarkets
Foundation in "Golden Beige"


                                                                          Swatch in natural light 
   Loreal Nutrilift foundation (Golden Beige) & Maybelline liquid mouse foundation (Sandy Beige)  
  "Both Shades are exactly same upon application but loreal looks lighter in its bottle" 
This foundation comes in transparent glass bottle with a pump, its packing is quite heavy while only contain 25ml product less than normal foundations. The pumps looks so cheap when I used it and looks like made with very thin plastic. This foundation is sold at such a high price but its packing is just like normal 10$ foundation's packing, while some other cheap brands foundation(Maybelline, Almay etc) have batter quality packing.

I bought this foundation in golden beige and I noticed that this foundation looks lighter in its glass bottle(because of thick glass) but the shade is dark on application. The foundation is fragrance free which is very good for sensitive skin types. It is liquid foundation and you need little more than normal foundation to cover entire face. It is very easy to blend and does not dry quickly. It looks very natural on my face, it has light to medium coverage but does not cover acne or acne marks. It did not highlight my pores but made my dry patches more noticeable so next time I applied it after using rich moisturiser. The foundation looked beautiful on my face,did not cause me break out and did not oxidize. It has very good staying power and lasted on my face for long period of time

I must say that in term of application and looks, this is normal good foundation like other loreal or Maybelline foundations, not an extraordinary one, but it has some skin beneficial ingredient which makes skin healthy and glowing. I was expecting a bit more from it , because of such a high price. (I bought it when it was on sale for 24$ and I have 10$off Priceline voucher)

I feel that this foundation is not for those who have acne problems and blemishes because it does not cover them well. I still prefer to use my normal Maybelline dream liquid mouse foundation than that one.
I highly recommend using moisturiser under this for dry skin beauties. Not recommended for acne or blemish prone skin, but I think that this is ideal for mature skin because of its skin beneficial ingredients.

Kosmea Skin Care Review

Kosmea Skin Care Review

I have received Kosmea skin care samples from their face book campaign. I have used these samples and really like them. 

Kosmea Purifying Cream Cleanser:

This cream cleanser has opaque white colour with thick consistency and pleasant smell which is not overpowering. As I have dry skin so I normally use cream cleanser but this one is the best cream cleanser I must say. It has silky texture really similar to moisturising cream and small amount is enough for entire face. After application its is very easily to wash off, few splashes remove this cleanser. My skin felt so soft and hydrated and clean after using it with out having dry patches. It is very gentle cleanser and did not cause me any allergic reaction. I really love this cleanser but the only dislike is its price, it is one of the expensive cleanser. it is Ideal for mature, dry and sensitive skin.

Kosmea Clarifying Facial Wash

It comes in tube packing which is convenient to use. This foamy cleanser has very good consistency not runny and has pleasant smell similar to Kosmea moisturiser. A very small amount in enough for entire face, it also leather very well and easily washed off by few splashes of water. It left my skin soft and hydrated, it did not make it dry or flaky. It cleaned my face with stripping my skin. I used it for few day and it did not break me out and did not cause any reaction. I like this cleanser and during summer I prefer to use it than cream cleanser. This face wash is Ideal for oily, sensitive, combination, acne prone skin

Kosmea Replenishing Moisture Cream:

It has pleasant smell and disappear soon after application. It is rich moisturiser and has very thick cream like consistency, small amount is enough for entire face and neck. I think the full size tube will last for long time. My skin felt so soft and hydrated after using it . It felt greasy soon after application but after few seconds it absorbed into my skin with out leaving greasy layer. it converted my dry rough skin into soft hydrated skin and it also disappeared dry patches around my mouth and on checks. I did not broke me out and did not flare eczema or sensitivity. The only dislike is its price, it is so expensive, I used its sample and love it. I wish it comes with lower price tag, I really love this moisturiser. It is ideal for dry, sensitive and mature skin types

Kosmea Certified Organic Rosehip oil:


 It has dark orang colour unlike other rosehip oils. It also has strong smell which I really did not like. It has oil like consistency not so thick and not so runny but it felt very rich. A very small (even one drop )is needed for entire face and neck. This rosehip oil is really oily and upon application it leave greasy layer if I applied too much. It made my skin soft and hydrated, it did not break me out, and did not cause any allergic reaction. But during summer it felt so oily on my face. I really like this rose hip oil but do not like its smell. It seems that it can help to improve overall condition of my skin but I think it  is not suitable for very oily skin specially in summer. It is ideal for mature, sensitive and dry skin types.

Clear Total Nourishing Care Shampoo and Conditioner

Clear Total Nourishing Care Shampoo and Conditioner

Price:  3$/6$/9.49 from Priceline, supermarkets, Pharmacies, Big W

Few months back, I had accepted Clear hair care 7 days challenge, so they sent me 50 ml sample  of shampoo and conditioner. At that time my scalp was just recovered from seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff, I was a bit reluctant to use this normal shampoo but I give it a try.


                                                            Clear Shampoo
                                                            Clear Conditioner

                                                                  Clear Shampoo

                                                                 Clear Conditioner
The shampoo has nice packing and very pleasant smell. It leathered well and washed away easily. My hair felt so soft after using it and my sensitive scalp also did not react. (As in my case, any product cause me reaction even after one application). After few days of use, I noticed that my dry damaged hair looked so beautiful and my scalp also felt healthy with out dryness or itchiness. As very few hair products suits me, and this is one of them. I love this shampoo, it delivers all its claims and it maintains healthy scalp. I was not expecting any thing from this product because of having troubled scalp, but its results are amazing.
I also used conditioner after having good experience with shampoo. The conditioner also has pleasant smell and thick texture, which is easy to apply and also rinse very well. The conditioner also did not cause allergic reaction to my scalp, it left my hair soft and shiny. But this conditioner was not as amazing as shampoo, its a normal good condition like other brand have and did not make any big difference in my hair. Normally I used Pantene conditioner and this one is similar to Pantene but the only difference is the price tag.
Overall both products are very good, but Clear Shampoo is such an outclass stuff. I have used so many shampoos and this is best one I have ever used. I am very happy with this sample and I bought their complete hair care rang from Priceline.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick

Price:10$ from Priceline, Chemist warehouse, Big W, Target, Kmart, David jones and supermarket

                                         Drop of Sherry058                         Asia 077
Few months back when Chemist Warehouse has 50% off cosmetics sale, I bought so many cosmetics and these lipsticks were also included in my haul. This lipstick comes in black plastic packing which looks ok, but for this price in Australia you will not find a good lipstick. I bought this lipstick in Asia and Drop of Sherry, both colours are different shades of pink.
This lipstick has creamy texture which glides smoothly on lips and it also has pleasant smell. They are very well pigmented, give full coverage and moisturize lips very well. But the bad thing about this product is its staying power, on my lips it stays only 1-2 hours with out eating and drinking, it does not leave stain on my lip.  I thought that Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks are better than these ones because they has decent staying power.
Both of these shades are so beautiful, still it is a good bargain for those who have dry lips, want to have creamy lipsticks and can easily reapply it.

My Rating: 4/5

L'oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick

L'oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick

Price:26$ from Priceline and selected Pharmacies

In Australia, Loreal is considered one of the expensive drugstore brand, so this lipstick is also consider an expensive one. I did not bought it from here, it was gift for me from USA. 
In Australia ,limited shades are available and this one is also not available here. The packing of the lipstick is sleek and pretty with good quantity of product. The lipstick has pleasant smell, creamy texture and glides smoothly on my lips. It is highly pigmented, moisturising creamy lipstick and gives full to medium coverage. It is also suitable for those who have dry lips, this will keep their lips soft and healthy. This lipstick looked so beautiful on my lips but it did not last for long time(as cream lipsticks does not last for long time ). It last on my lips for 2-3 hours (with out meal) and even it did not leave pretty stain, may be because I have naturally well pigmented lips.
This lipstick was ok, I like it but it is too expensive and you can purchase same quality lipstick with half of this price in Australia. I think Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick is better bargain than this one with less than half price.

Beauty Essential Eye Shadow in BE COOL

Beauty Essential Eye Shadow in BE COOL

Price: 6$ from Priceline

I bought this eye shadow because I use eye shadows occasionally, once or twice in a month, so I do not want to spend too much on it. This pallet looks good as for only 6 $, you can have variety of looks.
 The packing of this eye palette looks cheap but suitable for travelling. It has 9 different colours, suitable for fair to medium skin tones. All shades are shimmery, and well pigmented(not super pigmented). Some of light shades looked chalky but others medium and dark shades are fine. The shadows are easy to apply and smudge beautifully on my eyes. They have decent staying power and last for 5-6 hours on my eyes, but colours little bit fade after few hours. I highly recommend using eye primer for having long lasting colour.
This palette is nice and affordable for those who do not want to spend too much on eye shadows. For 6 $ it is a really good bargain and also suitable for those girls who are new to make up.   

My rating: 4/5
Will Repurchase: May be
