The range uses 1% Salicylic Acid which is the most effective acne treatment, but too much can irritate and dry this skin. The rest of the ingredients will balance and purify your skin this preventing any irritation or dry skin.
Not only will this cleanse your skin but it will go to a deeper level to cleans the liver and support your organs. That's the Milk Thistle in there. The Blue Green Algae is a vegan source of omega 3 which we all need to be supplementing anyway. This will help sooth any irritation to the skin and keep your skin supple.
I'm sure you have all heard of Asprin face masks for acne prone skin. Well this range uses Willow Bark which is the source of Asprin. Before pharmaceutical companies added chemicals to it and made it bad for your liver, Willow Bark was a naturally effective treatment for pain and inflammation. It is used in this skincare range for just that. It can reduce the inflammation and redness of existing spots as well as preventing future break outs.
I could go on and on about all the other ingredients but this will be a long article but the main ones I can point out are:
Lavender - Calming the skin
Almond oil - Cleansing for the skin
Lemon - Evening skin tone and preventing excessive oil production
Clove - Antibacterial
Peppermint - Blood Circulation
Orange - Penetrating the skin layers and brightening the skin
Bergamot - Antibiotic and disinfectant
Jojoba - Moisturising
I could not recommend this range more. I love it. And the best thing is, it is totally AFFORDABLE!!

Gamila Secret offers a range of products for different skin types to help neutralize the skin and bring it back to its original state. So if you have ageing skin, you would buy the Rose one and if you have oily skin, you would buy the Lemongrass one (which is what i did). There are different ways of using this product. It can be used all over the body if you want it to. Especially the Rose one which is great for the décolletage. It can also be used by men as a shaving cream.
Now, lets get to the good stuff. Does it work? In short, YES. So they recommend you use it for a month straight to see the results but I saw then after a week. I didn't see anything miraculous but I did notice that my skin wasn't as oily. But I was still breaking out, but not as much. I carried on using it and didn't see a great difference after month. I also had to start reviewing another product but I can definitely say that this soap does what it is meant to do and by no doubt will the others disappoint.
The celebrities that use and endorse the product already have gorgeous skin. So where does that leave us? With the secret....
This is a product I would use over and over again but I'm afraid I have plenty of other products to review.
To Buy: Please do. I've recommended it to a lady I know from Germany and she is absolutely in love with it. She buys a new one every few weeks.
Remember the days before texting? Remember when your lover sent you a real handwritten love note and not copy and pasted text with a video from some boring website?
This is the place for those who love good old fashioned hand written love notes. Maybe you want a real snail mail pen pal or just received a real love note from a stranger that you would like to share. Maybe you want a stranger to write you?
Maybe your tired of seeing digital fonts and craving someones unique way they write "Your Words Are Beautiful".
The words you write and how you write them are beautiful, explore random love notes, find a pen pal, or leave a picture of your own love note. This site is for the non-digital romantics.
It’s like your whole world has changed in a single moment, the mundane daily routine has been broken.
In a world where people rarely leave their house and the only mail you receive are texts on your phone and computer screen, something as simple as a hand written love note from a stranger can change everything.
I don’t want something that has been copy and pasted, I want ink and graphite! I want to hold your words in my hand, take them to my favorite places on the beach and in the forests where there are no computer of cell phone receptions. I will know it’s you because you’ve left your scent on paper you wrote on. Romance is real…
I don’t want you to “like” me on Facebook or invite me to “chat”, I want you to leave a handwritten note on the sidewalk where I walk, I want you to send me a postcard from overseas, I want to see your love note posted on the wall of the usually very unromantic bulletin boards of gas stations and laundry mats.
There is power in the pen, it’s when we take a break from staring at a screen and go outside with pen and paper, that we truly write from our hearts.
This is the worst thing for acne. Not only does it make it worse but it creates more. It increases the inflammation rather than decreasing it. It's doesn't kill the bacteria. It spreads it.
The good thing about this product is that it does not irritate the skin in any other way. there is no itching, burning nor any drying properties. So it is easy to get away from this product with no problems.
This silly product creates whiteheads and is just as bad as picking at your skin. Maybe this has to be used in conjunction with the test of the skincare line but on it's own is a total let down. There are a lot better products for half the price so do not waste your money on this.
To buy? Hell no
To Buy: YES YES YES
To Buy: I don’t know how I lived without it
We know already that Benefit is a reputable and trustworthy brand, releasing products that we know work. They're packing it's beautiful and eye catching. We can trust them because we respect them as a high end brand. We know that it is going to work from the get-go.
So why write a review?
There are some extra benefits that I have noticed when using this product. Instead of being psychologically conditioned to believe that the products we are working. This one actually says what it does. This is the only primer as far as I know that can actually define the word Primer.
The way it glides on to the skin is very silky. It fills in any small lines in the skin to make it feel luxuriously soft. It can also slightly fade your own fingerprint. So make sure hands are washed after the application.
I conducted a little experiment with this primer to see I'd the foundation would stay on my face longer. It did. My foundation lasted FOUR HOURS LONGER in London weather. So this subject to adjustment on weather conditions.
Now as we all know, products of the same brand all work well together, but trying it with other brands is really based on trial and error. I can confidently say that it has worked well with all the foundations I have tried so far. These include Este lauder's Doublewear. Hourglass's Immaculate and Maybelline's Fit Me range.
It can be worn on it's own to mattify skin textures after moisturising, leaving the perfect amount of glow. It is a wonderful primer for eyes. It is very light weight and it works on all skin types and skintones. It won't cause any break-outs and it is an absolute essential for every woman's make up collection.
To buy? If you don't have it already, slap yourself and go and get it. I've had mine for over a year now and still have some left. It's a once a year investment (depending on how much you use and how often).
To Buy: There are better ones out there.
To Buy: Not a necessity.
