    Hameda Nafiz / BuzzFeed

    Promising Review: "As someone with fairly dry skin, I regularly experience that tight feeling that comes with using regular cleansers and it wasn't until recently that I discovered it was because I wasn't using the right products for my skin type. When I began to use this particular cleaner, I was turned off a little by the oily consistency, but this was just me being an absolute brat, because just days later, I discovered that my skin was glowing and imperfections were slowly fading away. The best part? It can be used as a makeup remover, simply by applying it over your dry face rather than wetting it first."

    Promising review: "Every time I saw an ad for these tights I thought; 'Damn, her bum looks great in those'. And evidently that's my only requirement of activewear, because I finally caved and bought a pair in dark green. Let me tell you, these are seriously worth the hype. They're so comfy, they feel like silk on and — I can confirm — they DO make butts look great. I've done some high-intensity training in them already and they don't ride up, fall down, or cause a wedgie mid-lunge. They're ridiculously cheap too, so I'm going to load up on different colours. Treat yo' butt."

    "These liners are the easiest thing you can add to your makeup kit that will make you stand out. An extra 10 seconds in the morning and bam! They've honestly changed the way I view makeup — now, it's more of an accessory to match my outfit or mood for the day rather than a way to cover up imperfections.
