I use this for underarm hair removal, is really effective and not as strong smelling as VEET. Not had any problem re sensitivity. It is really good value for money around £2.50 for 100ml when on offer. Will definitely be repurchasing.
This has to be the most dreadful ChG polish I have tried ( I usually love their polishes ). A pale off white creme colour. Took 3 coats to produce a streaky balding look. Took a long to dry. Use you money to buy a different ChG.

Beautiful darker purple\plum, but not blackened, with an inner glow and shimmer. Applied smoothly, no application issues. Base coat+2 Polish coats+ Top Coat Am intrigued with this range after using this, will be purchasing additional colours. Excellent value for money. Checkout Flickr some pics there.
A mid tone taupe base with a lilac hidden shimmer, makes for a unique appearance. In some lights looks mainly taupe in others has a lilac pull and when the sun hits it you can see the lilac shimmer. Nubar Base coat +3 polish layers + top coat Applied like a dream, smooth no streaks with excellent wear - day 4 no wear or chips. Prefer this brush to OPI pro-wide which is too wide for my nailbed. Would love this to be added to the core line.
Unique colour for me - really intriguing. By day the colour is a true Royal Blue, if the sun hits it you can see a microshimmer of turquoise. On an evening indoors - the polish takes on a Navy Blue colour rather than Royal. However it is not a duochrome. Base coat Nubar +3 coats of Royal Blue+ Top Coat=Excellent wear, removed it after 4 days wanted a change (slight tip wear). This is Orly at its best, Would love other colours along similar lines:)

This is too orange based for me, looking for a peach that pulls more pinky than this one. Has a pearl finish with a goldy flash. Took 3 coats for an opaque finish & looks the same as colour in the bottle.. Will report back on wear.

If you have an itchy scalp or dandruff this shamppo is definitely worth a try. (Also suited DH- who is prone to eczema flareups) The active ingredient Piroctone Olamine targets fungi\yeasts and helps relieve the itching and dandruff flakes. It has a The pH value of 5.5 I also washed my brushes & combs in it to cut down 're-infecting' my scalp This is a HG product and relieved my itchy scalp within 2 washes. I now just wash once a month with it now, using my regular shampoo the remainder of the time. Cannot believe how effective it is- wish I had found this years ago will never be without it.. The active ingredient is the one used in Philip Kingsley Itchy Flakey Shampoo (at a fraction of the price). Around £5.00 a bottle in UK.
This is a bright red that pulls orange with a pink glass fleck shimmer.a really cheerful colour, would be great for pedis too. Would look great in the sun-makes me want to go to Florida:) The application was so smooth applied like a dream, 2 coats gave a beautiful smooth opaque finish. Wear: Basecoat Foundation II + 2 coats of colour + 1 Nailtek Topcoat will report back on wear later- 1 day so far

Review for number: 44 This is a metallic silver polish with a sprinkling of prismatic sparkles that flash blue, red, green, yellow when in the sun or light.- Looks really futuristic and is unique in my collection. Applied like a dream - opaque in 2 coats and wears like iron - no chips -Day 3 Base coat Nailtek II Foundation & Topcoat Nailtek. Found on e-bay for around £1.50 - would love this in variety of colours.
This is a raspberry creme with a glossy finish, applies as the colour in the bottle. Just doesn.t seem very interesting. Applied 2 coats looked fine, but DD' nails which are longer looked to have 'bald spots' with 2 coats. Dried ok, but the tips seemed to take longer to dry and one of them seem to lift a little. Will try and leave the mani on a few days to check out wear etc. Will update then. Base Nailtek II Foundation & Topcoat Nailtek.
Georgeous colour, a violet purple base, full of subtle micro glitter. The colour is very similar to the one linked to the picture here. It appears duochrome in the bottle but does not look duochrome upon application (need to check out different lighting situations)- but I still love the colour and look. Unique in my collection. The first coat was thin and streaky, however after applying a 2nd coat it became smooth and opaque. Drying time: Did not dry super fast, just seemed the right time to be able to work with the polish and practise application skills (some polishes seem to dry too fast for me to work wth them). If it wears OK I would def be interested in trying more in the range. Purchased at CVS.
A Taupe cream that pulls to a pinkish colour, loved the look of the colour in the bottle, but I feel the colour didn't suit me, made my fingers look really pink and looked as though they were sore -not a good look. I was suprised at this, as I love how Orly Country Club Khaki looks in comparison. Wear: Not impressive, chipped really badly in a couple of days. Could be due to me trying out new basecoat \ topcoat so will give it the benefit of the doubt at the minute, but will not buy anymore cremes until I check this out. Tried my regular base Nailtek Foundation II and Nailtek topcoat - the polish didn't chip as readily, but still chipped compared to others. Would not repurchase
A semi-sheer pearl white polish with a flash of lilac\pink. It also has a small amount of micro glitter that enhances its beauty, It applied smoothly with no streaks, good to go with 1 basecoat 2 coats of polish & topcoat. I am pleasantly suprised at the quality of this polish, I will be buying more of this range.
