Treatments -L'Oreal - YOUTH CODE LUMINIZE Super Serum

I got this in Asda on offer at £15. I'm always looking into products to look after my skin and thought this would be great as my skin s looking a but dull, regardless of my exfoliating and moisturising regime! I use this of a night, and ive only used it twice but I have to say I like it. I like the smoothness, and the slight luminosity it gives me the next morning! I can't comment on whether this breaks me out or not yet, so will update this in a month or so!
I usually use Schwarzkopf live xxl, but yesterday I just couldn't be bothered with the 30 mins waiting around. So I saw this on offer in Superdrug for £5 and got it in shad 2, Black. Now I know these usually show up darker, but this ain't a problem for me with black being my colour of choice lol. Anyways, LOVE the application comb to use first and then I switch over to the nozzle to get right to the roots. I've noticed this formula is reaaaaaallllllllly creamy, and you seem to get more product than the Schwarzkopf one. Anyhow, after ten mins, I rinsed it off, to believable colour, no tell-tale staining of the scalp and then used the generous tube of colour conditioner. This is supposedly a 6 weekly treatment amount but I think it'll last me 3 weeks. My hair was amazingly soft, shiny and naturally coloured! Love it, and I think I will start using this instead of the live xxl!!!! Wholly recommend!
This was my first ever plumping gloss, and the hype surrounding it was kinda immense. So i bought it, and was astounded at the sheer size! Its seriously mini, like a perfume sample sized! And it was very cinnamony, and the plumping wasnt as good as i hoped although it did increase blood flow to the lips with the spicyness of it!!! Kinda not into "stinging" lip glosses anymore!
Treatments -Clinique - Acne Solutions Clearing Moisturizer Oil-Free

Got this as a GWP along with the soap and clarifying lotion from the anti-blemish range. I was hesitant to use this moisturiser as my skin is seriously prone to breakouts if it doesnt ;like a lotion or potion i use!! Anyhoo, this felt great on, smoothing, none greasy and i ADORE the smell of it! Like a minty medical smell, like you knopw its something good for your skin :) I will be buying the full sized lotion, soap and clarifyiong lotion once i run out in the not too distant future! A must try if you have spot prone skin!
Cleansers -Clinique - Acne Solutions Antibacterial Soap
LookingGood85 8/17/2012 12:14:00 PM
I got this along with the calrifyng lotion and moisturiser. Pleasantly suprised as definitely thought itd be way too harsh for my skin. I currently use the 3-step oily skin soap and number 3 clarifying lotion, which i was happy enough with. But i am prone to breakouts and so started using the little bar of soap every night after removing my makeup. Funnily, i dont find it drying at all, and im usually first in line when trying a new face wash for my face to flare up all sore and red and itchy!!!! Used this for about 2 weeks now, and have noticed my skin is a lot smoother with only the odd hormonal spot. Yes, once this mini bar runs out i will purchase the full size!
I bought this on a major whim. Im not a huge fan of oil, i just despise the texture of it, all slippery!! Any how, i poured a bit of this into my bath the other day and had a nice long soak and after drying, my skin was so soft and felt like id lotioned instead of had a bath with oil in it! Will do this weekly :)
Toners -Clinique - Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion
LookingGood85 8/15/2012 2:26:00 PM
Got this as a GWP with my usual Clinique buy of the bar of soap for oily skin and clarifying lotion 3. I suffer with the odd spot and cystic acne breakout, and currently use Duac to great results but I'm concerned it's too harsh to use daily. Anyways, I've been using my mini bar of acne solutions soap and clarifying lotion of an evening, and yes my skin is a bit drier but clearer. Think I'm gonna invest in the full sized version for evening use! Defo worth a shot if your spot prone!
I bought this the other day for £3.99 in tk maxx, BARGAIN! I've used it for a few days and my nails are already looking healthier and less splittage! I've recently been on a dramatic nail polish addiction and it has wreaked havoc on my nails, lots of splitting and peeling! I intend on using this for a few weeks before using a polish again! Love OT and will buy at full price when needs be!
I got this for £3.75 half price at superdrug so couldn't pass it up as I'd been wanting to try it since my mother in law told me about it! I'm glad I did and I plan on buying backups at this price! It's a SUPER rich body butter, more 'solid' than other butters I've got, but melts AHHHHH-MAZINGLYinto the skin, leaving a glowing sheen, but no greasy feeling. I have to say this is fast becoming my fave moisturiser especially drying the weird summer weeks over here in England, what with ever wind and cold or rain or very hot sunshine! This nourishes the skin whatever the weather literally!
This is either the exact lipgloss or a similar colour in new packaging to the one I used to use about 6 years ago from Trish. I love it and no other gloss comes close! It's a peachy pink shimmer gloss, perfect consistency, any thicker and it would be too sticky! I love the little brush on the applicator as it makes the application very precise :-) I will continue to buy this, my long lost gem of a lipgloss! £15.50 is a bargain for moi :-)
I have recently become obsessed with the perfect red nail polish. I have Cajun shrimp which is a perfect corally red, and I came across this in a tiny seaside town in Wales! It's a pink based red, which looks decidedly more pink than red with its first coat, but upon the second coat it becomes a true red. I wouldn't say it's a proper pillar box red, but it's a lovely glossy red none the less! I find two coats and a topcoat is perfection!
I paid £10.50 for this and foiund it worked best when topped up with my Cutex Nourishing nail polish remover, rather than the OPI one! Perfect for cleaning up around the cuticles, much more precise than a cotton bud! Anyone know where I can get extra nibs???
Highlighters -Revlon - Bare it All - lustrous lotion

I bought this after spotting it in my local pound store. I have peachy tease and love it! The shimmer is subtle and pretty. As usual for Keillor be mixing this with foundation for an all round glow :-) bargain find, heading back there today to rummage for another :-)
I love this polish! Not on it's own mind, as I find it rather bland on its own. I use this over Cajun Shrimp by OPI and I adore it! I don't mind having to fish the hearts out ever :-) Won't buy again as I don't think I'll use this every time I do my nails!
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti
LookingGood85 7/19/2012 11:21:00 AM
This is my second lip butter, I bought strawberry shortcake first. This goes in quite true to the colour in the tube. I actually love this colour OVER strawberry shortcake for my own bespoke lip butter colour! This alone is a nice bright tangerine colour, which can be sheer or colour blocked, depending on how you like it :-) Will buy again!
