Gels/Soaps -Dove - Go Fresh Beauty Bar - Energize Grapefruit and Lemongrass

Used up 5 or 6 of them already, which has never happened before, because I love to try something new. This one is a real staple for me now. I use it in the shower and also for the oil cleansing method. When I wash my face cloth with this soap the mascara residues disappear (this doesn't happen with other soaps). It smells incredibly fresh, soft and natural at the same time and my skin feels sooooo soft and clean afterwards although it's by no means a harsh soap. Excellent product! Definitely recommend it!!
On it's own, the product is way to shimmery for my taste. But mixed with a matte -a little too dull on its own- foundation like Maximum Cover or Double Wear by Estee Lauder this is a truly Holy Grail for me. The mix combines longlasting, waterproof qualitites with a lovely glow. Wonderful!
Cleansers -Avon - Clearskin Professional Deep Pore Cleansing Scrub

For me its the perfect scrub. Why? It leaves my skin clean AND soft. I think it's because of the glycolic acis and the tiny little exfoliants. Although I don't like the menthol smell I can still tolerate it because of the gorgeous effect.
Toners -Avon - Clearskin Professional Clarifying Toner Pads Step 2

It's a wonderful product which really cleared up my skin: No more pimples and a moisturised glowing skin. Therefore I willingly accept the price! Together with the scrub it is the perfect match for my mixed skin. Obviously the glycolic acid it contains helps a lot.
HOLY GRAIL!!!!!!!!!! I'm 33, I laugh a lot, so I have fine but definitely visible lines around my eyes and the between my mouth and nose. After using the facial plus creme with 15% my husband commented on how young my skin looked. I think you have to be careful using it but it shows a youthening effect on my skin like nothing else. Beside my black- and whiteheads were reduced as well. I'm in moisturizer-heaven :)
A truly beautiful elegant scent, which is not to overpowering. My husband absolutely loves it on me, and he is pretty picky.
Powder -Meow Cosmetics - Flawless Feline Mineral Foundation

HG!!!!!! I've been using Meow's Original flawless Feline for more than 2 years now and ordered my second jar now. Despite of Dior, Chanel and Kanebo this is still the best Foundation for my skin. Why? It covers well, it looks absolutely natural, my skin is still breathing, and it is long lasting and no break-outs, even if I wear it for 24 hours. Although it was a long journey to my perfect shade (after buying lots of samples) I have found my PERFECT shade, namely Chartreux, which is a golden, peachy and warm tone without screaming yellow, the perfect shade for my mediterranean skintone. It blends perfectly and melts into my skin, because it is so finely milled. Yet, it is crucial that you use an EXCELLENT moisturizer underneath this MF. I have tried it with a normal cream, and it is just not the same, because it has a drying effect on my combination skin. When I use my Vichy Aqualia Thermal Moisturizer (which has gotten excellent reviews on MUA) it looks as if I put on different make-up. It looks so good!!!!!! On photos, my skin looks flawless!!!!
Just one word to describe this fragrance: LOVE!!!!! It's my signutare scent and I get lots of compliments.
Definitely the worst lipstick I have come across!!! And I have seen and tested many! After 20 minutes of applying the truly beautiful nude shade my lips feel as if superglue had dried up on them. Yes, it is longlasting, but the result is so terrible that I had to throw this one away. What a waste of money!
I love this one! Why? Because for the first time in my life my nails look long, elegant and strong whereas beforehand they were short and weak. It also fills the ridges perfectly and the longevity of my nail varnish is incredible (with Cutex nail polish its about 6-7 days, which for me is a veeeeery long time. And, a very huge plus for me (because I don't have the patience to wait): It dries and hardens within 2 minutes. Definitely recommend this one to everybody with thin and brittle nails who dreams of beautiful nails and needs a perfect base.
I just LOVE it. I have been using my beloved GHD for almost three years now, every second or third day in order to create curls. I haven't noticed any damage on my fine hair yet, but I must add that I always use conditioner and treatments on my hair to keep it moisturized. 4 days ago my hairdresser used another expensive flat iron on my hair. I can tell you, there is such a huge difference. With a GHD, my hair is SO shiny and bouncy (I always create big curls). It looks healthy, even if I haven't had my ends cut for several months. As a hairfreak I can recommend this tool as a long term investment in beautiful hair which in the long run is really worth it!!!!
This is such an absof***inglutely great product, I can't believe it! I use it since 3 days and today I have received 3 compliments already. They asked me whether I have been to the hairdresser because my hair looked so nice. I can totally recommend this product. I use it with my other HG, my GHD flat iron and it doesn't way down the curls that I create and my hair hasn't become greasy which often hapens with other leave-ins. I am so happy!!!! Thank you MUA, I would have never bought such a relative expensive product. But the result justifies the price!!!!
I'm sorry, but I had this colour in dark auburn. My fine hair is now reallly really dry and I need lots of conditioner to reduce the damage that has been done. Revlon hair dye, no, not for me!!!!
