I bought Skinfood New Zealand Cleans all which is a cream cleanser that removes makeup and is safe on the eyes. It is a natural based product with aloe and manuka honey. I love manuka honey on my skin and this is what drew me to it.
It has a essential oil smell to it but it is not a strong smell as though it is just the smell of the ingredients not an added fragrance.
I have used this to remove my makeup and it did a good job although it did struggle a bit with removing my waterproof mascara.
It is a cream product and left my skin feeling clean but not stripped dry.
You can rinse it off your face with water or wipe it off with a cotton pad.
So far I am liking this product.
I also bought Nivea Visage Shine Control Mattifying Gel Cream. This is a moisturiser. I bought this because I have never seen a gel cream before and have never tried a shine control moisturiser.
This has quite a strong smell, which puts me off a little bit because fragrances sometimes break me out, but I'm giving it a go.
It says on the packaging that it has UVA filters but there is no specific SPF on the product. This doesn't bother me much because my makeup that I wear on top generally has an SPF in it.
I have only used this once but it felt very moisturising on my skin and my skin was left feeling soft after the product was absorbed. I wouldn't say it made my face completely matte but it was definately less shiny than when I use my Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturiser.

So far I am happy with both products and I will update in a month or so how they went for me.
