Beautiful, sexy, cocooning and warm. I love this perfume and have received many compliments when wearing it. Suited to winter months :-)
Wow very unusual ! Smells like sweet incense...just beautiful. I had a tiny sample of this and the first time I wore it my boyfriend said he loved it and it made him think of a 'Maiden'. It's heady, sweet, musky and very sensual. Similar to Lolita. This makes me feel very sexy and is an evening perfume and prob most suited to winter months as it's so warm and cocooning. The only down point is the price which is about £42 for 30ml but it's worth it as a little goes a long way :-)
Fragrances -The Body Shop - Scents Of The World ~ Atlas Mountain Rose

I received this perfume as part of a set for Christmas. My first thoughts were 'oh no not rose'! I usually do not love rose perfumes but this one is just beautiful, it's light, warm and powdery. I usually wear perfumes that cost alot more but the most compliments I've had have been for this one. It has pretty good staying power and a lovely close to the body dry down that smells like sweet rose and musk. Top marks body shop :-) P.S the Jasmine one is also gorgeous and very similar to the neroli jasmine.
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

This is good for combination/oily skin/oily t-zone but very drying everywhere else! It reduces the size of pores pretty well but was a little too drying for my skin and did nothing for lines which some other primers do. My friend who has very oily skin loves it so I gave it a 3 :-)
Oh dear not good! This is no good at all for those with sensitive eyes and made mine very red and itchy...not what you want from an eye cream! Luckily I only tried it as a sample. Saying this I do like other Origins products such as A perfect world day so will not be writting the brand off altogether.
Treatments (Eye) -Clinique - All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage

This is quite expensive for what it delivers but It's still worth the money if your budget can afford it. I keep mine in the fridge so putting it on is very refreshing and luxurious. It de-puffs and is good for my sensitive eyes. The only draw back is the price so I'm going to be trying out less expensive similar products to see if they deliver the same results :-) *Any recommendations would be appreciated :-)
Moisturizers -Nivea - Pure and Natural Moisturizing Day Cream

hhhhmmm I wanted to like this but I did not (well apart from the nice smell) It broke me out slightly and left a slight film of grease on my face. It's ok as a night cream but for me I'd need the one for sensitive skin.
What a beautiful, whimsical fragrance...it's just lovely :-) I adore this perfume, it's quite unlike anything else I've tried and I receive many compliments when wearing it from both men and women. It's soft, creamy, sweet and has a kind of old-worldy, magical nostalgia about it. The other perfumes I like are Lolita Lempika, Este Lauder Sensuous, Dior Addict and Benefit's Something about Sofia. I suits both day and evening and I would mostly wear it in the Autumn :-)
Best mascara I've ever used..and I used an awful lot! It's rather expensive but is worth the money as it's just wonderful. It curls my lashes and keeps the curl for days ( I know bad me, one should take one's make up off every night ) It's great for my fairly sensitive eyes and comes off very easily with a good cleanser and has no rub off and does not smudge. I'd highly recommend this mascara :-)
Moisturizers -Clarins - Multi-Active Day Cream *new formula*

Wonderful product! I first tried this as a sample and fell in love with the smell and beautiful texture. I was then very impressed with the results on my skin. It helped my fine lines appear less noticeable, my skin is glowing and feels silky soft. It's alot more expensive than I'd hoped it would be but it's well worth the money and Clarins do great offers where, for example you'd buy one product and receive 2 free samples (big samples more like travel sizes) I also tried the multi-active night which also smells divine and seemed to plump out my skin nicely. I've had comlpiments about my skin recently since using these products so am very happy with them and will be using them/Clarins for many years to come :-)
