Pressed Powders -Collection 2000 - Shine Away Compact Powder
lou4k6 1/28/2011 11:09:00 PM
I think that for the price this powder is excellent. I bought it purely because of the cheap price and I needed a new foundation,concealer, powder combo. I use this powder over the 16hr foundation and it works excellently to set it. Sure I still have to retouch but my skin is oily. It makes my skin look flawless when applied over the foundation and concealer. I don't find it drying and I have it in medium shade which is perfect for my tanned skin. For the price you can't beat it!
I love this product so much!! It lathers excellently and moisturises my skin. Smells lovely and is reasonably cheap!!
Treatments (Eye) -Avon - liiv botanicals Vitalizing Eye Cream with SPF15

I didn't think that I was going to like this product but I really do!! It moisturises well and it doesn't sting my sensitive eyes. Also I find that I'm sure this does actually help with dark circles and puffiness as it really cools my eye area. Spf is included which is a plus as well as plant extracts. Very pleased and all for a small price!
I like this product, it looks nice on and gives a nice smooth look and feel to my skin. It also provides a certain amount of coverage too which is excellent. It neutralises any red areas and is a good colour match for my skin. I picked this up from eBay and it was quite cheap and is actually authentic! I do recommend this product however i think that there is probably better pressed powders out there. I would never pay the full price for it due to the fact that it is a nice product but really nothing majorly special.
I am on the fence about this one. I really love the consistancy and the coverage and the colour match to my skin! I like the cute packaging however it can be a little fiddly at times. However this matte 'souffle' as they call it really sticks to any dry flaky patches on my skin and doesnt wear too well on my oily skin, which isnt what im looking for in a foundation! If you have a normal skin type and are looking for a foundation to offer natural coverage then i would recommend this however for me, the searching continues!!
I really like this fragrance. I bought it in the sale in boots for a really cheap price otherwise i wouldnt have bought it, however i have to say im plesantly surprised! Its a great day fragrance that is fresh and light. Lasts well on me and i like the packaging. Have to say i prefer the original cool water however if this was on offer i would repurchase!
Put simply this is just the best hand cream ever! I have been using clarins however i found it wasnt providing much moisture. This product however is really moisturising without being greasy, it smells gorgeous and makes my hands feel lovely. I cant believe how much i love the whole S&G range, they are such high quality products for a low price.
Scrubs -Soap and Glory - Flake Away Spa Body Polish
lou4k6 11/12/2010 5:16:00 PM
I have repurchased this body scrub soo many times and i think that i will be doing so forever as it is my HG! I love all of the S &G products and this is one of my favourites. It smells gorgeous and leaves my skin silky smooth. It also really moisturises my skin which i think some people feel is leaving it slightly greasy as it does leave a slight film on the skin. I personally like this because for me ( i dont have particularly dry skin on my body) so it means that i dont have to apply moisturiser so often! I can understand though why some people may not like this! I pick this up in Boots for £7 approximately i believe and for me this is a real bargain as the large tub lasts ages and i think its an excellent quality product. Definitely try if you are looking for a new body scrub! Its fab :)
What a find!! I purchased this last week with my no7 £5 off voucher and i am really impressed. It removes all of my dead skin cells that have a dulling effect and makes my skin really soft and smooth. My blackheads and pores have reduced SIGNIFICANTLY which is something that i havent achieved after years of facials and countless skincare products. I have been using this alongside the no7 soft and soothed cleanser, face wipes, purifying toner and masque. This product is really resonable with the voucher and tbh i would buy it anyway without the money off because i love it soo much. I have an oily skin type and find that this works best using it around 3 times a week. HG Exfoliator!
Concealers -Wet 'n' Wild - Cover All Liquid Concealer - Medium - 813
lou4k6 11/12/2010 8:26:00 AM
This product is so cheap which is why I bought it. Unlike the other reveiwers I didn't find it chalky or drying. It blended well but has very very light coverage, on me its hardly any coverage. It doesn't last long on my oily skin either. Will use up for touchups but definitely will not be repurchasing.
I can't believe the low ratings of this hairspray. For me its my HG hairspray! Tbh I've never noticed an offensive smell, there's a smell but its just a normal hairspray smell! It holds really well and brushes out easily without snapping the ends of my dry hair. Great packaging and available in different sizes and holds.
I love this toner!! It really did brighten my face up when used in conjunction with the cleanser. It smells gorgeous and reduced the size of my pores, refreshed my skin and left it feeling clean and matte. This has lasted me ages too which is great! A brilliant staple buy.
Toners -Boots - No7 Beautifully Balanced Purifying Toner
lou4k6 11/6/2010 8:07:00 PM
I have repurchased this product many times. Yep sure its not a groundbreaking toner yet it does the job of a toner well. That is to remove the last traces of cleanser and dirt and refresh the skin. I have to be honest and say that I haven't noticed any purifying. Or drying up of my oily skin but no product I have ever used has actually done this! I will repurchase this again and again and also it doesn't sting or break out my sensitive skin like harsh alcohol toners! Great packaging and pump bottle too.
Cleansers -Boots - No 7 Beautifully Balanced Purifying Cleanser
lou4k6 11/6/2010 8:00:00 PM
I have repurchased this cleanser many times and is excellent value and a quality product. I prefer to use this in the morning on clean skin to refresh and brighten my skin whereas I like to use the normal/ dry no7 formula in the evening for removing make up. If your looking for a cleanser for this purpose I would recommend doing the same because this gel cleanser doesn't have excellent make up removing properties. It feels really cooling on the skin and hasn't broke me out at all! Great pump bottle too, love it!
Cleansers -Boots - Botanics Skin Brightening Cleanser
lou4k6 11/6/2010 7:54:00 PM
I really like this cleanser. First of all its excellent value and has a handy pump bottle. This cleanser is more of a cleansing milk than cream which is for me a minor drawback, even though I have a oily skin type I prefer a more creamier texture to my cleansers. It smells nice and removes make up excellently without making me feel as if I have a film over my face. This is specifically a brightening cleanser which I think it actually did do to my skin which is good. I also have to recommend the toner that goes with this which I like even more than this product. All in all a brilliant cheap product which I will be repurchasing!
