MAKEUP BOURJOIS Healthy Mix SerumI often say that this a foundation that I can rely on. It's one of rare ones that looks very natural on the skin (coverage is light-medium), it doesn't look weird over pores, doesn't feel heavy and it works no matter in what weird mood my skin is. The shade is a bit too dark and yellow for me, that's it's only minus, but it has so many other pluses that I always keep a bottle in my collection. Repurchase: Already done.
SKIN CARE TRILOGY Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing BalmThis was pretty decent. It wasn't as luxurious feeling as Emma Hardie's or as good as Balance Me, but my skin enjoyed and played nice while I was using it.

It can only be open for three months before it expires.Repurchase: No.
BALEA Beauty Effect Power MaskeIf you asked me a couple of months ago if I'd repurchase this, I'd scream yes, but now I'm just not sure it's as impressive as I thought. I think my standards were very low because stuff we have here is very basic. It's a great hydrating mask, there's no doubt about and it fixes dehydrated skin completely overnight, including heals dry patches. But that's all it does, it's hydrating and it never made my skin look great like some other products I've tried recently. It's a...
