I do like this tonee however I will not be repurchasing due to it breaking me out really bad. I guess this is just because it is highly astringent and exfoliating therefore bringing all blockages to the surface. On the positive side however it feels really nice when applied and althoughj astringent it doesn't sting my sensitive skin. Shame about the breakouts because I like this toner...
Great fragrance, really pleasant. Its one of my favourites and I will definately repurchase. Warm with jasmine, amber, musk and vanilla it is a really intriguing grown up perfume which I love.

I adore my uggs!! I have three pairs and wear them pretty much all the time!! They are warm, comfortable , go with anything and I don't think they are uggly I think they can look really nice. They are expensive but I have got so much wear out of them its unreal! The only thing is the sheepskin inside the boot can get flattened a little too quickly but its still soft! Would repurchase again and again.
The colour guide for this product is extremely dark but when I washed it off I was hardly any darker than before!! Iyt was weird I was prepared to have a really deep brown tan like the guide but nothing!! Really hard to apply but on the plus side I didn't get any streaks! Just not much colour! I slept in this over night and it did stain the sheets but washed out. Good packaging but high price for a product that definately isn't my hg!
I thinmk that this product is a definate must have for people who use self tanners. I use it to smooth out dry areas so that the colour doesn't grab and streak and I also use as a full body moisturiser.. I love using it for this because I never can be bothered to apply lotion to the whole of my body first thing in the morning after I shower, but with this its so easy! It takes literally 30secs to moisturise and you hardly need to rub in. I like the smell, I don't think its offensive at all. The pump spray does sometimes leak and dribble a little but I love the sexy sheen this gives my skin. HG dry oil spray for me!!

I do like this product however I think that there are better exfoliators out there. It has lovely packaging and good texture but personally I prefer my scrubs to be a little more abrasive than this one. Its quite expensive for a scrub for me because I ft a lot so get through bucketloads!! The smell is nice and lingers a lot which is good but after a while I think it smells a bit too artificial, but not enough to stop me from purchasing this in the future if I wanted a treat!
Self Tanners -St.Tropez - Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion

I think the reason so many people love this is because it must give a really natural colour on paler skins. However for me who has a medium to dark complexion it just didn't give enough colour. If I want to buy st tropez I will purchase the mousse because for some reason I found it gives me a better colour and not so many applications to obtain the colour that I want. However onto the lotion. Its really nice and creamy and spreads well, smells lovely not fake tanning smell at all! However I hardly tanned with this and the glow that I did have didn't last very long at all, 2-3 days max. Good packaging which is easy to use however its a high price for a bottle that last me around 2 weeks (240ml). I find from this I get around 5-6 full body applications for reference.
This is my HG everyday mascara. I love it it makes my lashes look separated and fanned out. It adds a lot of length and is really long lasting and doesn't smudge on my oily skin. Really black colour and good packaging. Such a good price too for such a good mascara! I'm happy :)
This review is for the dark lotion. This was my HG for quite a while however it is quite expensive and I get through so much fake tan I cannot afford this one!! However I do love this product and buy it occasionally as a treat!! First of all the smell- its gorgeous! Cherry bakewells! The colour guide is really good and the product applies really smoothly and spreads over as large area so a little goes a long way! The colour is lovely too, a really natural brown, the darkest I've got out of any self tanner in just one application! It fades evenly and moisturises the skin excellently too. Buy it!

Definite HG!! I have used every fake tanner out there! Fake bake, st tropez, loreal, sally hansen, garnier, dove, xen tan I've tried em all!! THIS IS THE BEST!! It does exactly the same job as st tropez but I think it does it a little better! There is a very slightly biscuity smell once the tan has been on a while but it is very inoffensive really! The mousse goes on reallyt smoothly, for reference I use a mitt which I highly recommend using. I also use this on my face and have had no problems with it and I am acne prone. Once I qash this off in the morning I am left with a gorgeous streak free dark tan! It does last on the skin really well too!! I can get around 8-10 full body tans out of a 200ml bottle which is really good!! Alll for under 3 quid a bottle! HG!
Self Tanners -St.Tropez - St.Tropez Tinted Self Tanning Mousse/Whipped Bronze
lou4k6 10/2/2010 5:49:00 PM
I love this self tanner however its just too expensive for me to use a couple of times a week!! When I apply fake tan I like people to think I've been on a holiday- I like to look realkly brown therefore I have to build up the intensity of the colour by applying more often. I got around 8-9 full body tans out of the large 240ml bottle which cost me 17 pounds on ebay. I would recommend applying with a mitt which I always do and have NEVER had any problems with streakiness! This product smells gorgeous... Its actually a first! A fake tanner that smells nice! The mousse goes on really evenly and has a colour guide so you can see where you're applying it. I left it over night and washed off in the morning and I was left with a gorgeous natural looking golden tan!! A really nice colour actually- no orange whatsoever! If it wasn't for the price this would be my HG. However I have discovered the knock off version of this which can be picked up in savers, tj hughes and ebay plus more bargain outlets and its called st moriz. I paid 2.49 pounds for a 200ml bottle and can honestly say it does just as good job, well...apart from the smell LOL!!
I've always been really sceptical about using firming or cellulite reducing creams and lotions...because they have never worked for me!! I absolutely love soap and glory products and think that they are really under rated! So when I saw this product and all of the excellent reviews I had to purchase it! I paid 14 pounds for this body lotion which although I know is really cheap compared to high end brands, is a lot for me to pay being a cash strapped student!! I usually just pay about a fiver for a loreal body lotion.. Anyway, first of all I love the packaging, really cute as always with soap and glory! The product is like a gel lotion consistancy and applies really well and smoothly. A little goes a long way which is good! I've been using this for about a month now regularly and still have loads left. The first thing I noticed was the product made my legs feel really tingly which I was a bit confused about because I thought it was a heating lotion....then...wow.. It really heated up! Like nothing I've ever experienced from a product before and you really feel that it works! After using it for four weeks I have noticed a dramatic reduction in my cellulite on my upper thighs! Only negative I would say though is my skin can tend to be a bit sensitive at times and the heating effect did make me itch a bit around the backs of my legs but this wore off when it cooled down. All in all a great product, definately one to try and for me its a keeper! Definite HG cellulite busting lotion!!
Moisturizers -Chanel - Beaute Initiale Energizing Multi-Protection Cream SPF 15

I am reviewing this after a having a generous sample that i have been using. I absolutely love this moisturiser. From using it for the past 4 days once a day I have noticed a visible difference in my skin. It is more refined and smoothed out. I can wear less foundation and my skin looks much brighter and healthier. I cant believe it in such a short time! This has hydrated my skin without being too greasy and i have a very oily t zone!! I was very skeptical of using it at first because i have just got my skin really clear after being on my second course of anti biotics. I think this actually has a mattifying effect on the right areas of my face. Top marks for SPF and light, non offensive smell! Love it!
Just got this concealer off of ebay for a very reasonable price and have worn it for about a week now. I have a oily skin and the staying power for this concealer is excellent. It covers any minor blemishes and acne scars brilliantly. Very thick and creamy coverage but i havent found it to be too thick or heavy/mask like. That said i use this concealer very sparingly. You do need to warm it up ( I apply this with my fingers!) otherwise it can sort of separate when you apply it onto the skin. The packaging seems flimsy like the plastic clear top is gonna pop through the black shell! Would prefer a flip top case but otherwise im a very happy girl!
I love this smoothing cream! The packaging is great and the smell is lovely. You only need the tiniest amount of this to work well. It smooths adds shine and makes your hair feel soft and lustrous. I use it after straighterning to take away those fly away hairs. The price ids a little more expensive but can be picked up cheaper on ebay. I am always looking for something better for my hair and want to try the kerastase chroma riche fluid next but will continue using this as its gr8!
