This is the first shower gel i have tried from lush and i am very impressed with it. It smells exactly as it is marketed: spearmint with menthol. This is lovely after a long day it is so refreshing and fills the house with its gorgeous smell. It lathers nicely also, i was suprised that it wasnt harsh on my skin and products that are heavily scented usually are. The downside to this product is the price as 10 euro is very expensive for 250g (anybody else find it bizarre that its measured in grams not mls? haha) i will definiatly try some more of lushs shower gels as a treat but a little bit too expensive to constantly be replacing :)
Toners -Boots - Traditional Skincare Range Glycerin and Rose Water

I saw the lovely traditional packaging on this product and i just had to buy it. it was something like 3 euro in boots and it is so amazing for the price. i always feel that toner is a bit of a gimick and i rarely find a toner that benefits and does good things for my skin. This product has a light rosewater fragrance but not at all over powering. i have extremly sentistive skin and this toner was moisturising and soothing. since i began using this product my skin looks more glowy and it has actually help clear up some spots. this has a very similar effect to the liz earle instant boost toner so if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to that i recommened this as they are very alike! will definately buy this again! :)
This was my first ever purchase from mac and I have never looked back!! I heard so much hype about this product so I decided to treat myself and get it an oh my god it's amazing!! It's a lovely pale pink and it's a cremesheen finish so it's nice and moisturising , I think it would suit all skin tones. I have very pale skin & I just love the way it looks with a brown smoky eye. It is perfect for everyday use and you wouldn't even need a mirror to apply it :) the packaging is great , it's classy and durable , perfect to throw in your bag. A bit pricy at €17.50 but I certainly get my money's worth as I use it practically every day. Holy Grail product and goes perfect with any makeup look. Believe all the hype this product is amazing!! Highly recommended :)
When I bought this I was expecting soo much from it due to all the hype about it in the beauty world but I hate it! It clumps like hell and takes like 4 coats to get decent definition , granted I like the wand but that's about it. Clumpy and horrible formula , stay well away!
I had been using carmex for ages and somehow my lips became immune to it so I decided to go back to this. I use the blue tube and I have to say I really like it:) I like that it's in a tube so there's no mess , it's cheap , easy to throw on and very readily available. My only problem is that you have to re-apply it a lot during the day which can be a bit of a nuisance but it's the only drawback :) love it <3
I bought this product to even out my skin tone & to clear up some acne scaring. The product does work but it takes a long time before any noticeable difference takes place. It is lovely to use as a bath oil and is a great moisturiser , I just wish it didn't have any fragrance :)

I buy the professional size as it is better value. This primer is amazing!! It makes colours easy to blend , appear more vibrant and prevents creasing. It may seen expensive but you only need a tiny bit and it will go a very long way. Ill never use any other primer after finding this! Love love love<3
I have spent so much money on spot creams and treatments but NOTHING beats this for getting rid of spots! it is so cheap and available , multi-purpose , lasts forever. Pros: cheap Lasts ages Easily available Do not need a lot of it Will remove spots in a short space of time Cons: there arent any!! Multi use
Concealers -Bourjois - Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer

I like this concealer to cancel out redness in my skin. I dont think it is good for blemishes or under eye circles but I love it for cancelling redness. I wouldnt re purchase this as I would prefer a concealer that covers everything. Also the scent is a bit to sickly for me. It dries to a kind of powdery finish
Okay first of all this is not "waterless" , it is watery and foamy! for the life of me I could not get this product to work and I tried every method I could think of. It left an annoying residue in my hair and didn't remove oil. Stick with trusty old bastiste! Not recommended
Lipstick -Revlon - Revlon Super Lustrous in Fire and Ice

This product is fantastic , I was so impressed with the pigmentation and the formula in general. It is reasonably priced , the only drawback of this lipstick is that no matter how much I blot and remove excess it seems to bleed after a while but nothing too bad. Highly recommended!
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

This product was a but of a hit and miss. I have big pores and was excited to try this , it does help minimise pores a little bit but it doesn't make a significant difference. However it does smooth out the skin which is handy to apply foundation over. I do like this product but not for it's intended use , i probably wouldn't re-purchase it again
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion

I have been using this moisturiser for years and I'm in love with it! Very reasonably priced. It sinks in quickly while still moisturising the skin. I love that it has no fragrance and is very soothing, perfect for daily use , love it !!!
I much prefer the "haute" side of this mascara because it gives nice length and definition , I found this product worked better when a bit of air got at it. I liked the "naughty" side but I found it began to clump after 2 layers. All in all a good product

I have very fair skin and I was looking for a bronzer to contour my face with so the makeup artist gave me this and it has become my holy Grail! I love this to contour and warm up my skin , it is matte and has no orange tones and it was a beautiful texture ! Highly recommended!
