Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - HEMP Foot Protector
wunverdoll 3/10/2007 8:28:00 PM
This is the best foot cream i've ever used, it makes my feet so soft and supple but I can't stand the horrible hemp hippy smell and it's so strong. I will continue to by it just because its works so well.
I was expecting this to be a lovely natural vanilla scented oil but instead it smells like someone just sprayed the whole room with vanilla perfume. Will not repurchase.
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - the lip scrub by sara happ
wunverdoll 2/22/2007 3:01:00 PM
You get a lot for what you pay for considering you only need a teeny tiny bit so it should last a whole year with daily use. It also comes in a lovely little brown box which looks like a chocolate box. The scrub is very effective and leaves lips soft and plump. Would repurchase.
Unhygenic jar, is it really that hard to put creams in tubes? It was fairly moisterising but it leaves a white residue around my eyes which looks a bit like sleep, unless i properly massage it in my eye air. I wouldnt repurchase again as its nothing special and i hate the unhygenic jar.
I love the smell of it, its intoxicating. It washes like a dream and produces a nice thick lather but when I wash it off my skin feels quite 'rubbery' but to my surprise it didn't dry out my skin. I really love using this but next time I think I will buy another Lush soap.
I have dry skin which can get very dry skin if I don't use the right products. I use this scrub every morning on my skin and it leaves it looking very clean and feeling soft and plump, I didn't experience any dryness whatsoever. I found this to be best used in the morning rather than at night when taking off my make up. Having said this it's a bit fiddly to use as you have to mix the paste with hot water and it falls out of my hand whilst applying it to my skin so I'm going to take off one lipstick.
This is a very good cheap and pratical toner for dry skin. It has a camomile smell to it which isn't the most pleasant but it's not nauseating either. I would repurchase.
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm
wunverdoll 1/4/2007 9:13:00 PM
I love the way this smells and tastes like, it's just like strawberry and cake. It's also super moisterising and has become one of my favourite lip balms. Would repurchase.
Cleansers -Boots - Cucumber 2 in 1 Cleanser And Toner
wunverdoll 12/17/2006 6:56:00 PM
I picked this up because I coudn't find the skin refresher toner Boots do in the cucumber scent. I have dry skin which can get very dry and this didn't dry out my skin , it did make it a bit red though. I don't think I will repurchase, I'll try and find the skin refresher next time.
Eye Makeup Remover -Boots - Fragrance Free Eye Make-up Remover Pads
wunverdoll 12/17/2006 6:53:00 PM
This is a really good cheap product. Takes away mascara very easily, the pads are very oily which I believe helps to condition my eyebrows and eyelashes when removing make up but I have to make sure i use a cotton pad with water on my eyes afterwards. Would repurchase.
Moisturizers -The Body Shop - Vitamin E Creamy Neck Gel
wunverdoll 12/10/2006 10:44:00 PM
I have never used a neck cream before but since I have started using this my neck looks smoother and nicer and I believe it is helping to reduce lines on my neck for the future. This is a nice and simple neck cream that keeps my neck hydrated and I will be purchasing again. Note : I know it says its a gel but it's more of a cream.
This smells fantastic, very fruity and pineapple. I use it on my hands mainly and it leaves them smooth and soft, be careful not to use it on broken skin or a cut as it stings like crazy. I managed to get this product in a stall in a shopping center and this label is very hard to find so its very unlikely I will purchase it again and I'm not too keen on the unhygenic plastic jar it comes in so I'm taking a lipstick off for that.
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Leaf and Rusher Tx Lips
wunverdoll 12/9/2006 5:47:00 PM
This product is meant to buff away dead bits of skin, smooth and condition your lips which it lives up to. It has a nice foody smell but it comes in an unhygenic little pot instead of a tube so I'm taking a lipstick off for that. Going to try Sara Happ lip scrubs next.
Scratchy horrid paste and too harsh for someone with sensetive skin also don't think its suited for someone with dry skin. Got this as a sample and defintely won't be purchasing.
Lotions/ Creams -Molton Brown - Ultrasmooth Coco de Mer Body Lotion
wunverdoll 12/5/2006 7:16:00 PM
As with all Molton Brown products they are very expensive, come in beautiful packaging, smell great and usually deliver. Its very important for me when buying a product that it smells good and most importantly fresh ( can't stand things that smell of food or have horrible overpowering smells). This is the nicest smelling body lotion I have ever come across, can't really describe the smell but it smells gorgeous and fresh. As for moisterising it was average and after a few days of using it on my skin my skin wasn't feel soft and healthy and this was in the Summer so it would be utterly wasted in the Winter when my skin needs a lot of moistere. I would never use this product in the Winter but when the Summer comes I am considering giving this another shoot just because of the fantastic smell.
