Cleansers -Shu Uemura - Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O

I really fell in love with this cleanser. It was given to me in a swap, not a full size but enough to use for four facial washes. I like the smell and texture. It really gave my face a good clean. My skin felt soft and smooth after, I did not bother putting on a moisturizer. Then I google the product to see about getting some more, sadly the price put me off. I would probably treat myself at x-mas or throw hints!
Wow! I can tell you that this little gadget has surprised me. After seeing it on QVC demonstration I decided to order one, and I got one just before x-mas last year. I can honestly say it was money well spent. If I added up all the money I spent in a year on hair removal, this gadget works out to be reasonable in price. It is a laser type device, don't be put off by the smell of your own burning hair because it soon goes. It kills the hair at the root gradually, our hair grows at different cycles. I use it on my legs, bikini line, forearms & underarms (just don't use it on the face-stupidly I did and got burned, even though you are advised not too!). My hair is a lot finer and soon there wont be any need to use it anymore, hence my putting that I would not buy it again as you don't need to. I hope to pass it on one day (you can buy replacement blades). Fantastic!
Love, love, love it. I want to get a really big bottle of this. I could wear this scent every single day.
After having a small bottle of the Amazing Grace, I have decided that this one is just not for me. I do like it, but there is something kind of freaky about a twenty something smelling like a baby. Nice scent, not my cup of tea. Great if you want something really soft and you like a real powdery type scent.
After a single use I can honestly say that I am not that impressed. It is a nice texture, I think I got the wrong shade. The coverage is buildable, it did rub off on my clothing a bit. I am not sure about this one. Nay have to try it in a different shade..then change my review. It is not cheap!
I really enjoyed using this. As a treatment I find it one of the best that I have ever used and would buy it again. The smell, the texture and it has two uses. I like it a lot. My hair does feel silkier since using it (3wks), it makes it easier to manage. A little really does go a long, long way.
Also part of set I purchased. I am not to impressed with this product. It does detangle my hair, but then so does water! I don't find this a necessesity and will not buy another once it is finished. In fact I bought 2 sets at the same time, I have put the other mist up for swap.
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - Ojon Ultra Hydrating Conditioner

I think I may stick to this (see review of matching shampoo for full story). It is quite thick and smells lovely and a little goes a long way. I do find myself using quite a bit because my hair is so dry. I thought that this would be very enriching for my hair, but so far not the case. May improve over time. I have folllowed instructions to the letter.
I thought I would go all out and start a new hgair care regime. I have very dry hair and equally dry itchty scalp. My hair is natural. I have been using this for about 3 weeks now and I am 50/50 about this one. It does give my hair and scalp a good clean, but I do not find it the most hydrating shampoo that I have ever used, perhaps it improves on usage. Lovely smell. I bought a set off of QVC with this in and accompanying conditioner, revitalising mist and restorative treatment (also see reviews for those). Price worked out well for the four items.
I think I like this one, not so sure. I think it is growing on me the more I wear it. It is light and clean, feminine fragrance. Does not seem to last as long as Broadway Night (but that is heavier).
I got a sample of this and when I put it on I was instantly reminded of chanel. I dont know what it was...it seems to have a smell of classic fragrance about it. Very grown up, kind of fragrance my mother would wear. Might purchase though.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Mat Cherry by Masaki Matsushima

I did like this one. It has a refreshing smell. Not overly sweet, I could not really smell cherries or cherry blossom. It does not last a long time on the skin, no sooner did I put it on an hour later it was all gone! I so wanted to like this onem but it just does not have the staying power.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Masaki Matsushima - Mintea

I did not like this at all. I was not that keen on the bottle, although I do have a thing for the unusual. I could not stand the scent, I did not exactly smell mint or tea. A horrid fusion of I do not know what. Maybe it does work for some women, but it did not with me. Try before you buy!
Primer/ Corrector -MAC - Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone
lovemygold 7/7/2009 8:11:00 AM
I recieved this in a swap. I am a MAC addict. I am on the fence about this one though. I like the texture, it does not go all roly like some of the mattifying primers I have used in the past. It really has helped with my shine, It may not last all day though. If I apply about 7-8am at about 4pm I am shiny again, but still not bad. The size is a big disappointment for me. I know you do not need a lot, but 15ml is sample size and not worth £13 and something pence price tag!
I read reviews about this product in several magazines, and let me tell you... it is absolutly wonderful. The smell is awesome, it has to be sprayed at a distance. You brush it out, preferably with a natural bristle brush. Leaves your hair smelling just washed & removes other product build up or any greasiness.Perfect for in between washes. The only thing is you can not see how much you have left as it comes in a aerosol can. I bought the tropical version today, it smells even better. Love it!
