“This cleanser is a multi use product (daily cleanser and mask), it smells amazing and is beautifully creamy. After repetitive use my skin was just as blemish free as ever and I loved using it as I found the smell divine. It thoroughly cleans my skin and has helped to prevent any blemishes. My skin feels clean and smooth after use - fresh faced!” – bh member Bee1
Neutrogena Wave Power Cleanser, $15.99
“My skin is really, really dry on my cheeks and oily on my nose and chin so I needed to find a product that would balance out both the dryness and oiliness. I used this for roughly a week and my skin felt so good!! It was soft and most importantly it was no longer dry or oily.” – bh member Moonicaphillips
“First of all, the smell is amazing! There are some cleansers out there that no matter how much you wash your face, it will still feel like there is residue. However this cleanser washes off very easily and I can feel a difference on my face afterwards. Definitely one of my favourite cleansers of all time, and it’s really affordable too!” – bh member mango23
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, $9.50 (125mL)
“I tried this Cetaphil cleanser just recently as a change and it’s been wonderful. It removes my make up, cleanses really well and it doesn’t sting my eyes. It doesn’t lather too much which is good because I don’t waste too much water when cleansing. It doesn’t irritate my skin as it’s got a really light texture. This has definitely become a part of my regular skincare routine.” – bh member Jenna320
Lush Angels On Bare Skin Cleanser, $16.95 (100g)
“It's a delightful, gentle exfoliating cleanser that is light enough for daily use.
My skin has never felt so soft to the point that I like to go around to all my friends and say ‘feel my face’ so they too can become enamoured by Lush and their products. I'm definitely a convert to Lush and now all my skin care is from there.” - bh member Tracey622
“The simple packaging is beautiful and effective. I love reading the inspirational quote on the front. As one of the first products I use every morning and the last I use every night, I love the beautiful gentle fragrance. It really is a soothing, calm note to the start and end of my day.” – bh member Michelle240
Manicare Facial Cleansing Brush, $12.99
“I ABSOLUTELY swear by this baby! I know it doesn’t have the vibrations that you get from the Clarisonic, etc … but this brush cleanses SO deep down into your pores!!! It removes dirt from your face/pores that you didn't even think you could have from your normal cleansing routine.” - bh member darceyb
“I love this cleanser. It's a perfect pick-me-up and for early mornings. It has such a beautiful strong citrus smell that's literally good enough to eat. It's perfect for oil-prone skin. It effectively cleansed my skin removing all traces of dirt and oil. My skin after rinsing was left feeling soft, smooth and squeaky clean.” - bh member Beckky
“I absolutely love this face scrub. It has a fresh but not a strong scent and it always leaves my face smooth afterwards. I do suffer from acne but it’s mild and I have found this has helped clear my face quite nicely so I will definitely be buying it again.” – bh member Sophia352
“I love this cleanser. It comes with a plastic cleansing brush, which does a tremendous job of cleaning your pores and skin. I always leave the shower feeling that my skin is really purified after using this product. I have noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin as well, it just looks a lot healthier.” – bh member MelissaFay89
“I saw that this product had good reviews so I bought some the other day and OMG it’s amazing. This product has the best natural scent and makes your skin feel refreshed and hydrated. I will keep buying this product because ever since I started using it, I now feel that it's something I won't be able to not have. A must try, you will be impressed :)” – bh member Blue moon
“Combining witch hazel and orange blossom, this toner helps to get rid of any last traces of dirt and make up after cleaning. It has a refreshing citrus scent and it feels cool on the skin. I have sensitive skin, so a natural product is important to me and A'kin doesn't disappoint. It leaves my face feeling clean and toned.” – bh member Lily Me
“I use this all the time in summer!! When you spritz it on it is nice and cool on the skin and has a sweet rose smell, which is lovely! It’s great for setting makeup and stops powders looking cakey. Can be used as a toner on bare skin as well and is soothing on sun burnt skin.” – bh member Jamizie
Sukin Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil, $17.95 (25mL)
“I adore this product and use it for just about everything from my hair, skin, and cuticles. It is an all around performer. My dry, coarse hair sucks it up and loves it. My pigmentation is nearly completely gone and my fingernails have never looked better.” – bh member Jazzy1
“This cleansing oil is perfect. It removes waterproof eye-makeup with absolute ease and makes the general 'take the day off' process a lot easier. I have skin that is particularly sensitive to breakouts but I have been using this oil for around 4 months with no dramas. Very very satisfied with this product and cannot be without it.” – bh member Georgia600
Garnier Miracle Skin Cream, $19.95
“I love this miracle cream!! It absorbs quickly and evens out my skin tone very nicely. It looks nice and natural and can be used as a moisturiser base before foundation or on its own. I also like the smell and packaging.” - bh member nataliadimi
“I LOVE this product! I bought it last year and love its compact, easily portable size (pop it in your bag on your way out!) and reliability. It’s plainly packaged and not glamorous looking, but does its intended job well! It's a fantastic UV moisturising lotion with SPF 30. I use it quite liberally on my face and it never leaves any oily residue. It keeps my skin soft and my fair skin protected from the Aussie sun.” - bh member Belleful
“I love the feel of this moisturiser when applied and I like that it has a sun protection factor. It’s not heavy like some moisturisers that contain SPF can be and it seems to keep my skin feeling soft and fresh all day and into the night.
Make-up goes on well over the top of it and it feels like my skin is still breathing with it on.” – bh member Princess Lesletta
“I have used so many different moisturisers but this one is the best. It's light weight, but it really moisturises my skin, it's not greasy, has no scent - just pure moisture and does the job. Doesn't give me pimples and makes my skin look fresh for the day :)” – bh member Blue moon
“This is just amazing! This product doesn't make my skin oily and it's made my skin a bit more clear. I use it twice a day and it feels light on my skin.
It's cheap and effective!” - bh member Mayy
“This is my favourite moisturiser ever! I have been using this for about 20 years. Occasionally I will try a different moisturiser but I will always come back to Nivea Q10. It has SPF 30 which is essential these days to help protect your face.” - bh member LovelyOne
“I absolutely love this mask, and now use it two to three times a week as a pamper treatment. This mask doesn't dry completely down, but after leaving it on my skin for about ten minutes and washing it off, my skin feels hydrated, looks bright and is so smooth! I highly recommend this mask and it’s so affordable too.” – bh member mileenacatalog
“This is a perfect mask. It's great for acne prone skin and effectively removes all traces of excess oil and leaves my skin clear. It's also very gentle on the skin and doesn't give you a real tight feeling while the mask is drying like some other masks do. I found it very easy to wash off and my skin felt so moisturised afterwards.” - bh member Beckky
Natio Clay and Plant Face Mask, $15.95
“I bought this little product a few months ago and I absolutely love it! I found it’s quite gentle on my face and doesn't irritate it one bit, which is a definite bonus!! And the smell of this product isn't too overwhelming. After washing the clay mask off my face, I also found that my face is softer and a bit smoother!! Would definitely recommend it for any age to use this product.” – bh member
“My skin afterwards felt soft and refreshed. After about twenty minutes, I noticed my skin had really brightened. Particularly under my eyes was very bright and looked fresher and more youthful. It really did plump out my skin and it looks so much more healthier since using it.” - bh member Beckky
“When I first used it, I was amazed at how well it cleaned and removed all the impurities from my skin. My nose felt so soft and smooth and my skin looked clear! I would definitely suggest this for anyone who is a first time blackhead remover. It was easy and quick and gets the job done.” – bh member Amanda493
“I love these wipes! They are refreshing and leave my skin clean and soft. They remove make up without being harsh and are fantastic for my sensitive skin. They’re affordable and can be bought in any chemist or supermarket.” - bh member Lolakel
“I love these facial cleansing wipes as not only are they inexpensive compared to other leading brands but they actually work, even removing eye makeup. Whenever I travel or have overnight stays somewhere, I make sure that I have a pack of Swisspers in my makeup bag!” - bh member Bronterose
Vaseline Intensive Care Petroleum Jelly, $4.10 (100g)
“I’ve found that Vaseline Petroleum Jelly is so versatile and like a handyman of the beauty products. I can use it to tame my eyebrows if I want to create defined eyebrows for the day and I can also use it as my lip scrub – I apply a thick layer of petroleum jelly and scrub my lip with soft tissue to get rid off dead skin cells. It is colour-free so I even use it on top of my lipstick to create a bit of a glossy look. This is indeed a one tub wonder item!” - bh member Pinkswoon
NIVEA Lip Care Essential, $3.98
“This lip balm has been a staple in my family's home for years, even coming from Germany! It is what I wear when I'm sleeping and when I'm getting ready. It leaves no oily residue and lasts for hours.” - bh member LaraDoesThings
“If you like mint chocolate chip ice cream, then you'll absolutely love the smell of this. It doesn't have much of a taste to it, which is good, because otherwise I'd spend the whole time trying to chew it off my lips! It softens the lips and adds a bit of a sheen to it, which I quite like. This isn't sticky, but instead just feels slightly slippery. Just lovely.” – bh member Temporary Princess
Lanolips 101 Ointment, $17.95
“This certainly has 101 uses! You can use it as a lip balm or an ointment to treat anything from cracks on skin, eczema, soothe sore skin, nappy rash, dry heels and more! It's an excellent barrier cream and will lock in moisture while it helps to repair the skin. Lanolin is the key ingredient in this range and it truly is a wonder ingredient!” – bh member Beauty Obsession
“I have always struggled with dry, chapped lips. I've tried just about every lip balm under the sun. I finally got my hands on Blistex and have not looked back ever since. Some people do not like the smell, but I personally love it. It's very moisturising and long-lasting, and transformed my lips from flaky to flawless. Love it!!” - bh member mlam
Natralus Natural Paw Paw Ointment, $15.95 (75g)
“The Natralus Paw Paw ointment is a fantastic, natural multi purpose ointment which can be used as a healing balm to a range of skin conditions such as minor grazes, scratches and itches, dry and chapped skin.” - bh member PoshBec
Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum, $19.95
“I have been using this for about two to three weeks now and have seen a massive difference to my eye area. My eye area is far more hydrated than previously. My bags are not so dark and my fine lines are less prominent.” - bh member ilessthanthree
“My skin feels so smooth after using this serum for only a few days and I can notice a difference. My skin feels tighter and more firm. It is so well priced - I can't believe how good it is! I'm going to try the rest of the range now.” – bh member Trim14
