Lotions/ Creams -St. Ives - Skin firming body lotion [DISCONTINUED]

This is a really good moisturiser, absorbs quickly and leaves skin soft for days. Really improved condition of my skin especially with continued use. I've been using this for years now and don't plan on stopping.
Treatments -Alberto Vo5 - Miracle Concentrate Elixir with Argan Oil
LittleRussianDoll 1/3/2012 6:01:00 PM
Love, love, love this! I use it with the Nourish Me Truly shampoo and conditioner and I'm genuinely impressed. My hair is coarse and dry and this combination makes my hair soft and touchable. The elixir is the real star though and has made a big difference. It doesn't leave my hair greasy or heavy which I have found other argan oils do. Instead it feels light and super soft. Also, it somehow makes hair dry quicker so I no longer use a blow dryer (which has also improved the overall condition)

I bought this when I got the gel liner as the sales assistant recommended it. I wish I didn't fall for it because I found it awkward to use and prefer benefit get bent brush. Now I use it to line my waterline which I don't do a lot so it was a waste of money for me.
Tools -The Body Shop - The Body Shop Blusher Brush

I like the quality of the brush but it doesn't work well as a blusher brush for me, I realise now I prefer angled brushes. Its a good for general face powders too though so I still use it occasionally
This is a really good brush, I use it to apply loose powder as I prefer mac duo fibre brush for pressed powder. For me its better for loose because it big and rounded. Its good quality and has lasted years with regular cleaning.
I don't wear liquid foundation but I find it works well as a concealer brush. I use it to apply concealer under my eyes and cheeks and its great. It hasn't shed after many years of use and washing.
I don't actually use this to apply concealer, but its perfect for cleaning up makeup around my eyes and nose. I've had it for years and wash it regulary, it doesn't shed but its frayed slightly.
I got the limited edition gold handle one years and years ago and I still use it every time I wear makeup now. Its my favourite brush and does a great job applying my mac or clinique powders. I'm quite heavy handed when applying make up but with this brush it doesn't look like it.
I use this to apply highlighter and it does the job perfectly. Its soft so it lightly dusts powder on. I sometimes use it to remove powder when I've been heavy handed and it doesn't disrupt coverage.

This is my favourite blusher brush I've tried so far. I use it almost every day and wash it regulary and it doesn't shed. The bristles aren't the softest which is the only bad point, but it picks up blush as it should and makes applying quick and easy because of the angle. My friend has used it and didn't like it and we realised it may be down to our face shapes. She prefers rounded brushes as she has round cheeks which she swirls blusher on to, whereas this angled brush contours and applies in one sweep to my higher cheek bones.

I love this brush to apply bobbi brown/mac gel liner. I have the bobbi brown brush which I found awkward to use so I got this and its perfect! The angled head makes applying eye liner soooo easy and quick. I'd definitely recommend it.
This is one of the products I regret buying, it was greasy and didn't have any coverage. It wipes off so easily that it transfered onto anything I touched. Its probably good for someone who has really good skin as it didn't cover well at all for me. Definitely won't repurchase
I must be using this all wrong because I dont think its the perfect, most amazing eye lash curler I've ever used like most others. It fits ok, smaller than the muji one I use. Its really expensive and doesn't offer refills other than the one it comes with. I was told I should replace it after a year which would be very costly. It curls my lashes like any other curler really, nothing incredibly different. I like the silicone pad, but the muji one is quite similar because its not foam or whatever and its curved not flat. I wish I didn't buy into the hype. Sadly its not for me.
These are brilliant, I have 2 and I want to get the new bigger size. Perfect for your hand bag and safe to take on an airplane. Really simple to use. Its small, light weight and sleek.

I love these things! Perfect for soaking up excess oil and doesn't disrupt make up. I much preferusing these than layering more powder on top of my make up throughout the day. I've been using them for years and years now. A must have in my hand bag.
