i agree with skysthelimit. it does make your skin feel clean but i think it is better as a body scrub. also, the myth of a product being 'natural' does not always mean it is better for your skin. a natural scrub can be harsher on your skin than a sythentically made one. this is the same with apricot kernals in the aprie scrub. the natural kernals are not all the same shape and this can mean they can break the skin due to the courseness whereas the synthetic scrubs have sperical grains which are all the same size and shape. having said that, it does feel refreshing to use the lush scrub at the time!
i was a bit worried about this smelling a little 'pungent' as sometimes lush can smell a little bit too natural and earthy! i tried lush spray perfume and could smell it on the cuffs and collar of my jackets weeks later. also the day i sprayed it, i went into the local boots after and the women serving me said i smelt fantastic! i explained it wasnt from there and was from lush! i dont get loads of comments and a wear other perfumes regularly. then a woman sat next to me on the bus and kept talking to me! it certainly seemed to attract attention to me, albeit in my case, from the wrong sex!! so ive never actually purchased yet and did feel lush was very pricey esp for perfume, but if the boots women commented who had obviously smelt a lot of perfumes, it must be good! with regard to flying fox mentioned in other review, it smells incredible and so does bathroom after. also, the other reviewer commented on body cream. ive added a few drops of jasmine essential oil to a fragrance free body cream and this works quite well

luckily i just picked up a sachet sample from local boots. far too thick and not natural looking at all on me (combination skin) it did last, but wasnt happy with application and mask like look. age renew is mask like but at least makes you look a bit younger. cant believe they advertise it as natural looking.
i tried lots of versions of this dry shampoo. im not crazy about the glitter ones, but the original version is very good. ive tried other dry shampoos, cant remember one of names sorry but it was from £1.00 shop! to save money, but it was not worth it as it didnt work. ive got the coloured version as im brunette and this for me is better than the original as it isnt as powdery white. ive took off one lippy just because i havent tried lee stafford, bumble and bumble etc. or any of the more expensive ones. this is def worth the money.
new exquisite curl is much better and does give curl and length although not much volume.
this is one of the worst mascaras ive used. does nothing for length or volume. plastic bristles go funny very quickly. will not repurchase
i forgot how much i liked this perfume until the other reviewers reminded me! is it still around? its great for day wear and work or going out. its not too heavy, but light and fresh with a bit of a punch. defininately a keeper.
This product is now discontinued and is in fact marketted as protect and perfect intense. it was always the 'daddy' of the project and perfect serum with more wrinkle busting ingredients in the formula. Boots did a very clever marketting ploy, by renaming this as protect and perfect intense to ride off the back of the media frenzy after prot. and perf. had appeared in the horizon product. cant say i blame them, cos people were convinced the prot and perf was superior just because of higher profile. so if you liked this, just try protect and perfect intense which is basically this renamed as far as i know.

not really giving a review just advice.For the reviewer who said the consistency of this foundation was watery and then left a stain on skin, could i ask if the product had been damaged either in sunlight or was just past its sell by date - old shop stock? it sounds like it cos usually this foundation is quite thick and shouldnt stain. the combination of watery consistency and staining sounds like the product had separated due to some sort of damage. i dont work for any company just know a lot about different makeup!
I agree with the ladyisachump. ive used the original beauty fluid and the sensitive for years. ive tried lots of other creams over the last 30 years, but always come back to the old faithful orignal. the only thing is that the sunscreen version isnt the same texture and i like a suncream. i get round this by using a tinted moisturiser or foundation over the top with an spf.

Top rate product. Smells great, soap free, doesnt leave skin feeling over-tight. just use separate eye make up remover, but thats the same for any cleaners/soap/facewash.
I bought this product as a special offer at a local convenience store. I love the smell of this product! The eucyliptis(sorry for spelling!) makes it smell great. reminds me of eve lom but miles cheaper. good when tissued off to get rid of makeup and good as morning cleanser when rinsed off. also, if you put it on and use a hot face flannel, its like a mini facial as well.
unfortunately, this product made me look like I had jaundice! my friend met me for lunch and asked why I was yellow! i see it must work for some people who have given it good reviews. for me personally, it didnt work with my chemistry and was no-where near as good as the pizbuin products.
Mascara -Rimmel - Volume Flash Mousse Mascara -- Extreme Black

This is one of the worst mascaras Ive ever used. I imagined the consistency would be light being called 'mousse'. It was clumpy, and impossible to apply. it seemed to go everywhere apart from my lashes! im experienced at putting on mascara, but couldnt get used to this. i gave it away to get a sample estee lauder (they were doing a promotion - give away any make of old mascara and get one of theirs for free). if i hadnt done this i would have chucked it. the estee woman looked at it and offered to give me a replacement as it was so gungy in the tube! i declined. would have given it zero if i could.
Im obsessed with mascara, and consequently have loads (no joking i counted them and it came to over 60). so i hadnt used this for a bit. i picked it up this morning and have to admit, my lashes have appeared curled all day (no curlers we used this a.m.). my lashes look thicker and longer. i think for the money this mascara is very good and has outperformed many pricier ones i have purchased. the brush is easier to work with than the glameyes one. im impressed. and it takes a lot.
