Treatments -Boots - Tea tree and witch hazel spot wand
Lenuska 12/9/2008 12:00:00 PM
I came accross this while looking for something to treat the odd zit time to time and I though that the packaging and the idea of day and night treatments were very interesting. It didnt dissapoint. I dont get many spots apart of those days in month, you know.... and this dryes out anything overnight or during the day perfectly. Will definitely repurchase, love it, never had anything that worked everytime like this.
I got this product in the spring and I just threw empty bottle into the bin last week so I really used it a lot. Its nice perfume, nothing like HG material for me, but if I would be stock for perfume, I might buy it again. The biggest no no with this perfume is the bottle - if you dont press it properly, the perfume just leaks instead of spraying. I lost count how many times I had to clean the shelve with perfumes because of this. Of course its all over your hands as well so I feel like I lost at least one third of the bottle with this. The most useless packaging I ever saw.......
Cleansers -Nivea - Nivea Visage Oxygen Power Reviving Cleansing Gel

I did buy this cleanser from similar reason as many people here. the one I was using was sold out. I dont really like Nivea as I was told by my dermatologist when I was younger that Nivea is not a good brand and many people are allergic to it. I guess they changed a lot in last years. What first cought my eyes was the cute packaging and the oxygen think. So I gave it a try. I am on my second bottle by now and I am loving it. It takes of all my makeup included mascara (I am not wearing waterproof) with one wash. My face feel absolutely clean. I dont have black eyes in the mornings as I used to have with other cleansers. My eyes doesnt seem to have any problem with this product either. My skin can be very funny time to time, dry patches, redness and I dont have any of those problems. Of course it might be due to good cream I am using aswell, but I dont hesitate to recommend this product to anyone.
Scrubs -Olay - Regenerist Microdermabrasion and Peel Kit

Hi, I have bought this product last weekend after walking around it for past month. But after reading all the positive reviews on MUA I gave it a try. Its absolutely amazing!!!!! I have used Microdermabrasion Kit from Boots before but now I see the huge difference between brands. This is awesome. I used it yesterday evening for the first time - washed my makeup off, dryed mu face and applied the scrub (the smell is so yummy it made it even more injoyable). The instruction said to apply the scrub on dry and clean face. It was little weird at first as it was little bit difficult to spread the scrub over dry face, but I managed for 1 minute and then applied the serum over. It was like a little miracle, suddenly all the hard parts from the scrub dissapierd and my face was covered in warm white foam, beautiful feeling!!!!!!! After another minute I washed everything off and OMG I felt like my skin was naked for the first time ever, I have never had skin so smooth like last night after this treatment and its still smooth today (i keep touching my face even I know I shouldnt :o))))))) I have to say, I cant wait for the next application. If you dont like spending long time in the bathroom and if you are looking for beautiful radiant skin, this is worth the money 100%. Might update after few weeks, but I have no doubt I'll be still raving about this as this brand in general is in my opinion better then most of the expensive ones. Good luck
I have bought this product because I was looking for a rich cream to moisturize my skin overnight. I saw it on the shelve in the store and there was only one left so I tought it must be something good. The cream is ok, I quiet like the thick consistence, it doesnt irritate my skin at all and I think it definitely calmed down some redness on my face. I use it only as a night cream. The only and most important reason I wont buy this stuff again is the smell. It was not so bad in the beginning but as time goes on the smell is getting more and more irritating (I have the cream about a month) and I actually start to feel like holding my breath while applying this stuff on my face. I would advice you to smell it before buying it because not everybody can handle this kind of fragrance. Also the color is horrible, When I first saw the color I actually tough that the cream must be out of date and turned bad......... EDIT: I got used to the smell and just bought my third bottle. Never had better night cream, my skin is much more even and less red looking, will continue using it
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula
Lenuska 2/3/2008 2:59:00 PM
Nice body lotion, did not see any special changes in my skin appearance. Soaks in well but cant stand the smell, yesterday i used it after shower before going out for dinner and everytime I lifted the fork to my mouth I could smell the cocoa, awful.... The unscented version is probably better but I just love nicely scented lotions so I wont repurchase. Dont like smelling like a sweet. Other thing is the packaging, very difficult to get the stuff out of the bottle, Id say that at least 1/4 get wasted....... thats a lot even for cheap stuff
After reading so many good reviews I would love to try this product, but I am not sure if I can get it in Ireland, does somebody know if there is a place where to buy it? I am already using jojoba oil after reading the reviews and I am very happy about it, so I would love to try this one aswell especially when it works so well for combo skin which is my case aswell.
Am so glad, that it was not me - not able to apply this product, but that actually leaves streaks in general. I dont like it at all, as somebody said here arms were quiet ok but the legs......... tuk me several day to get it of, very bad streaks, and kinda orange colour, have one spare bottle in the bathroom, it will be flying to the bin in a moment
Cleansers -Johnson & Johnson - Face and Eye makeup removing wash

Very nice cleanser, gentle to my comb/sensitive skin, love the blue bubbles inside, smells nicely, the only negative think - sometimes not easy to open
