This is the first epilator I have ever used. I've been shaving since I was 13 .. I started young! When I first discovered a razor, I went mad with it, shaved every bit of my body!! Anyway, I was getting sick of having to shave my legs and underarms everyday as I have fast hair growth, or at least its been pretty fast since I've been having Biotin and Biosil. I think despite all the reviews on MUA, I wasn't quite prepared for this epilator. Before I even had a chance to pull my skin taut on my legs, my hair was gone! I just couldn't believe how fast it worked! .. and the pain? .. well, it wasn't bad at all! I know I have a high pain threshold compared to most other people, but really, it barely hurt on my underarms and bikini line either.. it was more like a sting. The one place I had tears in my eyes was on my upper lip. Ouch! And, to make matters worse, I've obviously damaged the skin above my lip somehow because I have now got dry, sandpaper-y skin there for the last 2 days. Been loading up on emu oil and moisturisers to make my skin heal fast! Despite that experience, overall, the fact that it was so fast and over before I knew it, definitely helped! This epilator definitely gets a BIG thumbs up from me :)))))
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Hemp Hand Protector

I was introduced to this by my boyfriend 9 years back. He's a potter and always ends up with dry. cracked hands. He uses this (when he remembers) and it makes a big difference to his hands. I have now become such a fan that I have one on my bedside table, in the living room, car and 2 back-ups! I gift these to family and friends as everyone loves it whenever they use mine. Great product at a good price!
Where do I begin with biotin?? .. I first started taking it around 18 months back as I've been having a massive shed. I've been taking a high dose as I really wanted to see results.. anywhere from 5000mcg - 15000mcg daily. I haven't broken out from it luckily. My nails grow so fast that I need to cut them every 6 - 7 days but the quality of my nails hasn't improved at all. They still have lines in them and chip or flake fairly easily. Where my hair is concerned, it has been growing faster, but there has been NO reduction in hair fall at all, nor has my hair quality improved, nor gone back to the normal soft and silky hair I had before my shedding started. So, all in all it's really a 3.5 for me, but I'll keep taking it as I want my hair to get to waist length :)
Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear LIGHT Foundation SPF10

I have a NC30 complexion and I use this in Intensity 3. I love the colour match, texture and performance of this foundation. It gives great even coverage and stays matte on me for hours even in high humidity. I only needed to blot the oil once or twice in 39 degrees heat on holiday. Great foundation and I'm already on my 2nd tube.
A great mauvish pink lipstick that would suit most skin tones. Lovely texture and not bad smell either! Good lipstick at a great price!
Love, love, LOVE this red. I have MAC Ruby Woo and Russian Red but this is my absolute favourite. My go to red lipstick! Just bought Wet n Wild Stoplight Red so I'll see if this one beats that too :)
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Homemade Vitamin C Serum

This does all the good things already mentioned by all the other MUA members, but the one thing that has me especially happy with this serum is that it has really improved my cellulite! I've been using it once a day, after my bath, and although I haven't been as regular with it as clockwork, after 2 months I've seen at least 60% reduction in my cellulite .. yay!!! UPDATE: Still using this and I've noticed even more of an improvement in my cellulite :)))))
