This cream feels very nourishing and my hands feel soft. I don't know if it will have any effect on reversing signs of aging though, too early to tell. It's quite pricy but if it does end up working, it will be worth it. Will keep using and update my review with my findings......

This is the best lip balm I've ever used. It smells soooo good, has sunscreen and feels really good on the lips. Some other lip balms sit ON your lips and don't really moisturise. This one actually penetrates and my lips felt smooth and moisturised. The most surprising thing though, is that it stays on and on and on! Usually, lip balm disappears within the hour. I put this on in the morning and it was still there after lunch. Even after it had come off completely (after eating again), my lips still felt moisturised. I usually have dry lips so I thought that was pretty amazing. I'm amending my above review slightly.....one reviewer of this balm mentioned they couldn't stand the smell and that it smelled like B.O., I thought they were crazy. But after using this balm for a while, I have to agree! It smells lovely at first but it does start to smell like sweat and body odour very quickly. I still think it's a great balm for all reasons I mentioned above, so I will buy this brand again, just another flavour/scent.
I have always used a sponge and everybody always tells me that sponges soak up a lot of your make up, therefore you go through it faster. I also wanted to try a brush because I am always looking for the tools and make up for flawless skin. In my opinion, this uses up as much make up as a sponge, so no change there, but it does work well. I wouldn't say there was a huge improvement to the normal sponge I use but I will keep using this brush because it's easier to use. It's the perfect size, big enough to cover quickly and small enough to get in under the eyes and nose area.

I thought this would be more like gingerbread biscuits, they're not. They taste like real ginger, which is very spicy and strong tasting. They are basically ginger flavoured sesame snaps. I hated them at first, thought they were too strong tasting, but I couldn't stop eating them....now I really like them.

I use this cream as a hand lotion and I like how it moisturises but the smell is awful. I'll catch a whiff of it when I move my hands near my face and it smells like dirty dish water.
this doesn't plump at all but I still use it over my lipstick for shine. It's a good neutral, natural pink
I like the way this brush feels on my skin but it doesn't seem to pick up a lot of powder. I use it for my bronzer and when I've finished I always feel like I haven't put any bronzer on....and this coming from someone who is always accused of not wearing enough make up! I like the 'no make-up look' and even I find this too subtle.

I have dry hair and was looking forward to using this because of the reviews, but unfortunately, this does nothing for my hair.
I used this to make nori hand rolls. It's not bad....but not good either. I'll just stick to brown rice next time.
I should have read the ingredients properly, then I would have seen that 'dates' are the first ingredient and wouldn't have bought these. I personally think dates are too sweet and this bar is basically mashed dates covered in chocolate....woah! Sickly sweet. There's plenty of other great ingredients but you don't taste them. Maybe that was the point.
