I'd tried a few other GOSH products and was really impressed, so when this caught my eye I thought I should give it a go. I got #12 in Green Grass and I love it! It was a tad gloopy which made it a bit tricky to apply, but I perfected my technique after a few failed attempts and it dried surprisingly quick. The colour is fantastic, really vibrant and a little shimmery. I put it on right before going to a concert and was doubtful that it would last the night, but I came home (sweaty, tired and a bit bruised) with my eye makeup looking like I'd just done it! The only thing I will say is that it was quite difficult to remove, even with waterproop makeup remover, but totally worth it seeing as it really does last all day.
Cleansers -The Body Shop - Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash

I loved this when I first starting using it, but after about a week I broke out in big, painful spots. You know the kind that lurk under your skin for weeks? I continued to use this for a little while longer, hoping that my skin would eventually get used to it and calm down (I'd foolishly spent a lot of money on a whole load of other seaweed products from the Body Shop on a whim, so I was determined for it to work!), but no such luck. It's a shame because I liked everything else about this cleanser, but something about it just didn't agree with my skin.
I wasn't at all keen on this mascara. It was the brush that was the deal breaker for me - I found it far too flimsy. It's a shame because I had no problems with anything else, and I especially loved the packaging. Due to the overly bendy wand though, I won't be buying this again.

Pretty expensive considering the size of the pot, but it's really good stuff. My skin looks and feels noticably healthier after using it, especially on certain dry patches. The smell was lovely, and it even helped get rid of a lot of my blackheads. My only complaints would be that it made my eyes water a little (nothing terrible though), and also it stings a bit when I peel it off - all worth it for the end result, though!
I liked this mascara a lot. The wand is great, flexible yet not too flimsy, and it was almost completely clump free. It lengthened my lashes and stayed on throughout most of the day. I liked the packaging, decent price - no complaints at all! Definitely one of my favourites.
Can't go wrong with these. Not the greatest quality, if I was trying to make an effort I'd certainly choose something a bit nicer, but for everyday they're great. Nice and cheap, lots of colours and I have no trouble with blending them. Jet Black and Saucy Mint have always been my favourites!
I'm in two minds about this. I love the way it makes my skin look and feel - even tone, and at the same time really natural and dewy. As far as coverage goes though it didn't do the job at all, it's just too sheer. Not unreasonably priced, smells nice and ivory 100 matches my skin perfectly, but like I said, the coverage. It's a shame, because other than that I'd adore this.
I was looking for some new eye shadow colours to test out and this caught my eye so thought I'd give it ago. I got the quattro eyeshows in Aquarius and so far I'm really liking them. A bit pricey but really great quality, it stays on for ages. Would definately buy again - they have a whole range of other colours I'm excited to try!
This is by far my favourite concealer. Great coverage, no matter how bad the pimple! It comes in a ton of different shades (I use Ivory 001) and I think the price is really reasonable. The only criticism I have is that it's quite thick so depending on your skin type it might cause a break out. Other than that, love it.

Although it helped soothe the particularly sore pimples, I didn't notice the slightest difference in the size or appearance of them. I liked the product's packaging, it was small enough to carry in a purse, make-up bag or pocket - however, at £4 there are better blemish sticks out there that are better value and that, I think, work a lot better.
