They say: A brow wax with a blend of Candelilla wax, jojoba seed oil and shea butter that is billed as being “crunch-free” and “creamy,” providing fluffy, natural-looking brows that last for up to 12 hours. Waterproof, sweat proof and cruelty free.
We say: Our tester found this brow product helped to easily groom and define her brows. True to its claims, it was neither crunchy nor sticky on brows. The wax was lightweight and kept brows looking nicely defined all day long.

Rouge Allure L’Extrait
They say: A lipstick launch from French brand Chanel that offers high-intensity colour and radiance thanks to lip-loving ingredients such as plant wax and Ume flower extract. Available in 20 satin-finish shades.
We say: Our tester found this lipstick formula gave her lips a bold kiss of colour with one swipe. The satin formula has a subtle shine and wore very comfortably on lips, she reports. Plus, we love that the lipsticks are refillable, helping to cut down on waste.

They say: A face cream that features kangaroo paw flower to plump skin. Made using ingredients of 95-per-cent natural origin, the vegan-friendly formula targets facial volume and wrinkles.
We say: Our tester, a woman in her 60s, found this cream had a nice, lightweight consistency and a soft scent. A little went a long way to completely cover her skin, absorbing nicely without leaving a heavy feeling on her face. The cream wore well and she noted a subtly smoother, firmer look with consistent use.
