Oh the pleasure!!!! The smell and feel of this mask is heavenly. Don't believe what the prospect says, you can leave it on overnight like a moisturiser, and wake up feeling your skin has gone to heaven. I'd recommend it for after a long flight, to wake up feeling refreshed and lovely.
My sister got this lovely duo in two very similar earthy brown colours. I thought they were great at first, but in all honesty, the pigment is quite poor and this particular duo was too shimmery. I'm sure other duos aren't quite like this...
All the women in my family have worn this and theis Xmas was my turn to get it as a gift...again, another of those rare fresh perfumes that are not actully too citrusy or flowery, I don't adore it as much as Crystal (Chanel) but it has a chic vintage feel to it that I love.
Have we tried the same product? This evil potion was like sugar for my acne, and my chin never looked worse than after giving it a go for two nights in a row ( I was promised my break out would improve dramatically using it at night...). Well it gave my pimples a "Pus boost" and nothing else. Absolutely depressing. I'm really dissappointed by Elemis...
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Moisturizing Shampoo

It dried my hair so much! But I did use it daily. I don't find the smell particularely good either. I always fall into buying the shampoo because I get it for free with the conditioner, that I actually like.
I had an amazing facial at an Elemis spa last night. The products used were gorgeous smelling and the therapist was really really good, the whole thing was the most relaxing experience. But...although they assured me some of the products would definitely help me (I don't have major skin complaints except for a permanent chin breakout that I put down to using phones and my husband not shaving enough) my skin didn't look any different afterwards. It felt nice, soft and pampered, but I didn't have a brighter complexion, and my three spots were right were they were before the facial, looking as red and cheerful as ever. I bought their lavender mask and they gave me samples of the day moisturiser (with a meaningless SPF 7 in it), so I'll update on those. I'd pay the price again for having that hour and a half of total bliss, but I'm not so sure about the efficacy of the range. Maria
Why do I like this so much? It's the opposite of the fragrance I usually go for. But it is so unique. I don't care what people comment on its patchouli and vanilla notes; it clearly smells of plastic, yet, it doesn't give you a headache, and you somehow become addicted to it...It's warm, wintery and very very personal.
Styling Products -Clinique - Shine Serum [DISCONTINUED]

I can't understand why this product is not the most famous hair product in the world. It's miracolous. Miles, light-years above any other serum out there (I have ended up throwing away most of the others I've tried). I still have the tube that I bought...let's say...3 years ago? Because you only need a tiny drop, and the effect is always the same, shine shine shine, no freezz or fly away hairs, and such a healthy glowy lovely hair...This is stuff made in heaven.If there were more stars, I would put an extra one.
This is a gorgeous floral fragrance. It doesn't work well with my chemistry, which is a shame. In other people, I distinguish a hint of pineapple, which makes it so fresh and not at all clogging, not at all like other fragrances out there now. I don't think the bottle is all that great. However, the balance of this fragrance is quite good.
This won the "Instyle" award to best blush in 2004, and it quite deserves it. It's a wonderful everyday shade, looks great in anyone, but it's NOT peachy, it's pink. FOOL PROOF application makes it perfect if you have to do your make up on the go...Not too much "staying" power, but perfect in every other way.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Hemp Hand Protector

This is an utterly amazing moisturiser, got rid of my dryness overnight and made my sister's eczema vanish. I hate the package, you waste loads of product with it, and it doesn't have an SPF (so I currently use Artistry hand cream), but it's so unbelieavably good I'll buy it forever.
I have noticed a slightely brighter complexion once the foundation is applied (I also wear Clarin's foundation), but not much else. The foundation is so good it works well on its own.
I rubbed this furiously and it gave only the hint of a bit of colour. I also felt like washing my face straight away after it. I wanted to love this product but it's crap, and you can't use it under or over powder (won't work).
I am very impressed with this blush, I got it in a peachy pinky colour that other ranges just won't do (it's either pink or peach and that's you). The staying power is better than most (better than MAC's), and the shine it gives it's just enough.The only thing I don't like is the little brush it came with, I prefer applying blusher with a bigger brush.
I got this yesterday, and I'm so happy! It's a cheaper alternative to moon beam by benefit, and it doesn't have the mistake I found with the benefit one (namely, it's lovely in undertones but doesn't mix well with my foundations), this one gives such a lovely glow underneath foundation I'm now fully made up at work because I couldn't resist not wearing it again! Beautiful stuff.
