Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - Serge Normant - Meta Silk Conditioner

Dried my hair to a crisp, was difficult to wash out yet did not leave a protective layer. I tried air drying and blowdrying and got the same result. My hair is not dry or chemical treated so it was a bit of a shock to get crispy ends... Living Proof is around the same price here in the UK, and FAR superior. I will be using it religiously to get my hair nice and soft again.
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Serge Normant-Meta Silk Shampoo

This shampoo has made my hair dry and weighed it down. Completely different to the other reviews. I am really cheesed off as it is expensive. I will have to go back to Living Proof to fix my hair again. The one good point though, it makes you realise how good the other products you use are when you stray!

Pleasant but just smells like Paco Rabanne Ultraviolet for Men to me. Which costs a lot less.

My boyfriend is a tree surgeon, and this smells like his armpit when he comes home from work. I think he should be quite impressed by this, but Bruno Acampora should not! UPDATE - I have just realised that this review was for Sballo NOT Seplasia which is actually quite sniff worthy! Apologies
My favourite moisturiser, and the only one I go back to time after time. My skin is combination and although becoming slightly drier as I get older, I have never liked the heavier creams for dry skin. This cream seems oily at first, but I promise if used sparingly, is fantastic for combo skin. The scent is a real pick-me-up, the texture is light and it really seems to treat your skin. It is the ultimate in winter, whatever your skin type, especially when it gets windy. The best way to apply it is by putting a tiny amount on your palm, then spread it out between your hands and then pat it over your face. That way you don't smother yourself in it and it has a chance to sink in.
Moisturizers -Olay - Definity Deep Penetrating Foaming Moisturizer

I was also selected by Vogue to test a new 'luxury' product, which turned out to be this Olay disaster. I had a hunch it would be Olay or L'Oreal so I don't know who I was kidding when I applied. Anyway, as soon as I found out it was foaming, I was put off as it seemed gimicky and pointless. My skin is generally well behaved, combination with few wrinkles and occasional spots. This product aggrevated my teenage demons, and broke me out in strange pimples I haven't seen since my GCSEs. I attempted the trial for two more days and then chucked it out as they were getting worse and I hated the greasy film it left on my skin all day. The only element of this moisturiser that was worth while was an irridescent sheen which is featured in plenty of products these days, and usually best when applied with a specific luminizing lotion. My overall assesment (which I reported back to Olay) was that I would avoid this like the plague, tell all my nearest and dearest to do the same and for any other attempts at gimicky, re-hash formulas to be binned before they reach the general public!
