Styling Products -Boots - essentials curling creme

I love this stuff so much. It makes my curls bouncy, less frizzy, shiny and moistursed and all for £1.30 a tub. I have found that it needs some extra help with the hold, a bit of gel will do it. Too much of this creme can make my hair a bit 'producty' and sticky. A little goes a long way and a tub can last for 6 months or more. Edit to add: This is usually part of the 3 for 2 offers in Boots and hasn't been discontinued (the shelves in my local store are always stocked with it) they just changed the formula a bit.

I have this in translucent and it shows up chalky on my rather pale skin. It does hold the shine away for a hours though but I don't think I'll buy it again.
Pretty good gloss, but too sticky and I hate sticky lipgloss. Cute little tubes and they seem to last a long time too. Also loving the yummy scent! Will use them, I have 2, till they run out buy probably won't buy more.

I bought it a cheaper alternative to the YSL one. It's not quite as good as the YSL but it's half the price and does the job. It would be good if it came in more than 2 shades as I fall between the ones available.
Awful stuff. It rubbed off very easily and I had smudges and flakes under my eyes from this mascara.
