Moisturizers -Aveda - Outer Peace Acne Relief Lotion
batlet2008 2/11/2010 5:10:00 PM
I always end up going back to this moisturizer as I love the smell and texture. It seems to help keep my skin less oily throughout the day too. Combined with a good cleanser and toner my skin is pretty spot free. I would recommend all the outer peace range it really helped clear my skin up when I had a bad break out.
Tinted Moisturizer -Dermalogica - Sheer Tint Moisture SPF 15
batlet2008 2/11/2010 5:07:00 PM
I think is a great oil free tinted moisturizer really good in the summer when you have a bit more colour. I used it all last summer as my skin was clearer than normal. Brilliant on holiday as it had spf15 in it.
ok this is another expensive dermalogica product but of all the spot treatments ive tried (and believe me its many) this is the only one that I really get results with. A small amount applied all over the aresa of concern and by morning you already notice a difference. For best results carry with you and use on spots throughout the day. I would be this product again but the reason for 4 lippes is that like with alot of products your skin gets used to them and they then no longer work like they have done. I normal finish a bottle and then go to oxy10 then go back seems to be ok!
Lip Treatments -La Prairie - cellular lip renewal concentrate
batlet2008 1/20/2009 12:37:00 PM
Ok this is ridiculously expensive but i love it. It smoothed and softern my dry chapped lips in a couple of uses. I have been using it for a month and my lips are smooth, plump and they are a lovely cherry pink colour. I like the pump packaging put for the price it could be nicer! OH and it smells amazing like oranges, taste nice too! I says splurge and treat your lips to this! The reason I have put I wouldnt buy it again is because of the price I love this stuff but am not sure yet that I would repurchase knowing me I would like to try something else! EDIT UPDATE : Have changed buy product again to Yes as still after all this time I love love this lip treatment amd it lasts for years! it has a shelf life of 24months and has lasted me over as year so far!
OK I had to give this ago after reading the reviews and try it for myself. I mixed a tsp amount of caster sugar with my cleanser (origins mega mushroom) in the morning. I softly scrubed in it over my face until all the grains had dissloved and then jumped in the shower I left it on for another min and then washed it off. I then used more caster sugar mixed with olive oil and washed my body and shaved my legs. I wasnt keen on the olive oil smell and it felt a slimey as I washed it off but my skin was soft after and there was no need to moisturise which is great as it such a time saver. I was very impressed with my fqace afterwards it really glowed so much so I didnt even use my normal brightening complex (that I cant live without) as my skin was so glowly I wanted to keep that. Overall I think try it for yourself and see what you think I think it great and will contiune to use and report back in a month or so and up my lippies to five if all is still as good as today.
Treatments (Eye) -La Prairie - Age Management Eye Repair

I have been using the sample of this for two weeks now and I love it I look forward to using it! it has improved the bumpy texture undermy eyes and makes them appear brighter and glowy! I think there seems to be a confusing bewteen this another age managment eye cream this one has not been discontiunted (Age Management Eye Repair ) as I go mine two weeks ago. I havent given this five as only using it for two weeks i will return to edit this review in a few months!
I went to spaceNK looking for a light foundation I could wear on holiday as I didnt want to use my perscriptives mineral one as I thought that would be too heavy. (I think I may have got that really wrong!) I had wanted to try one of the BY-TERRY concealers but the SA said she thought this would be good for me and my holiday. She matched me to 4 which I actually think is too dark as oily skin can make foundation look dark one its applied. I like the packaging it looked cool and was fun to use but to be honest I didnt use it that much when I was away as I found it made my skin to oily and didnt really do much to cover my scars and odd spots. The SA did try it on the back of my hand with a NARS primer and on the other without primer and I remember thinking yep it looks alot better with the primer but I didnt like the fact it wasnt an oil free primer so didnt get it. Now I have an oil free LP primer I might give this another go when I go away again or it gets warmer and see. At the moment I would buy again.
Hmm not sure about this one! After re3ading reviews on here I realise when I bought the tube (lipgloss style) version its actually isn't the same as the product in the glass pot and maybe why I was disappointed. To me this was just an expensive lipgloss. Ive used half of it and got board and now its headed to the makeup draw of maybe ill use it again! I think I would have been wiser to (have joined this site earleir!!) have bought the pot version. Am using la mer at the moment and love it so am sticking with that for now. Overall this product was ok not worth the price tag tho. If i was going to try this again ill go for the pot version more of a balm than a gloss!
My chapped, flakey lips are no more thanks to this rather expensive, yummy smelling lip balm. Packaging is lovely too it came in a gourgeous box and pot is slim and flat and easy to fit in your pocket or bag! Origins perfect world lip balm is in pretty much the same pot but the product inside is no where near as nice to use or as good as this. Yep its expensive I mean £32.00 for a 9g pot is a hell of a lot of money but I love products and had to try it after the brilliant reviews I had read on here and in magazines. If you want to treat yourself to a luxury product then get this!

Quite simply a must have product for me! On my thrid tub of this and love it! does extactly what it claims too! bright glowing clean skin! Perfect product try it to love it!
I was sure this was going to be a great cleanser as I have read so many reviews in magazines raving about it and when I went into spaceNK to talk to the SA about they said it would be prefect for my oily ance prone skin! I had just finish a tub of 'the organic pharmacy' carrot cleasner and though I had like it had read that eve lom was better for oliy skin so I thought why not give it a ago. Am sorry to say theres still two 2/3 of the tub left! I didnt like it much at all and like other people on here first couple of uses where great and then my skin looked dull and fell greasy after using it! Also I really don't like the tub its in unscrewing the pot is annoying and hard in the shower! If someone is looking for a good cleansing blam I would say try the carrot cleanser from theOP instead! This isn't all that good not for me anyways!
I got the starter pack of BE for xmas. I had been using prescriptives mineral makeup and I did love that but I think this starter kit is much better value and the warmth and mineral veil are amazing too! the fact that I got three brushes, four pots of make up and a primer is just amazing for the same price as I oaid for one pot and one brush of the prescriptives stuff! I have awful acne scars and have a slightly uneven skintone due to breakouts (although am working on it!) but with BE my skin looks smooth smooth and radient all day! its great!

I ordered this online as my skin was very sensitive and had broken out over xmas. After reading the reviews on here I thought id problery have made a huge mistake but so far am pleasently surprised it has clamed my skin down and it looks glowing and smooth! yay! I have been appling a penny sized amount on dry skin and rising off using a muslin. I will report back after a month to see if it still provides the right results and I can up my lippys.
Treatments -The Organic Pharmacy - Antioxidant Gel

I love this product it smells amazing and it refreshes, brighterns and makes pores appear small and less noticable. I love the fact that they have changed the bottle to a pump action too ! I highly recommend this product! I would add that skin can get used to products and after a while it can look like they arent doing anything anymore so I use a bottle of this till its finshed then use a different make and then back to this one! bit odd but I like to try new things too!

I liked this it is oil free which is great for my oily/ prone to ance skin I think its a great pick me up! I didnt think got better with use but its great before a night out as it brightners and makes your skin glow straight away. Am using something else at the moment but I would buy this again!
