I tried the sample of this product and thought it was fantastic, and I as very surprised with the colour, as I usually can't find a foundation to match my skin (too light) But when I bought the product, the lightest shade was way darker than the sample, and it left me very confused. A waste of money really.
Treatments -John Frieda - Go Blonder Lightening Spray
mkf96 11/1/2011 7:54:00 PM
I naturally have very light blonde hair, but I really wanted to go lighter for quite some time. My mother wouldn't let me dye my hair, as she said I'd regret it and I got really frustrated, so I bought this product. WOW! What a difference! My hair has gone various shades of white blonde and I love it so much. My hair used never be shiny before and now it's impossibly shiny, which is a bonus. You would not believe the amount of compliments I have received from friends and family about the colour and shine of my hair. I don't think my hair has been damaged at all, despite all the other reviews saying that their hair is ruined. Infact, my hair is quite soft. Also, peroxide is not bad for your hair when used in small amounts, just thought I'd let ye all know :) Most of the complaints seem to be coming from people who regularly dye their hair or get highlights.So if you do dye your hair, maybe this isn't the product for you. However, I LOVE this. The one thing I'd say is, obviously your roots will grow back darker, so it does take maintenance, but it is worth it :)
Love this so much :) Great if you sleep in.. Really does work, and it's not too expensive. My hair gets greasy the day after I wash it, and this soaks up all the oil, and makes my hair look brighter. However, if you have dark hair you'd really have to shake well before use and rub it into your roots well, because it can leave white marks on your head if you don't.
Treatments -John Frieda - 100% Shine Glossing Mist

Brilliant :) A little goes a long way with this product, really. People seem to be put off by the small bottle, but really all you need is one spray for the ultimate shine, as too much spray makes it look darker & greasy, especially with blonde hair. However my usually dull blonde hair now looks glossy and healthy and I have started to get a lot of compliments on it. I will definitely repurchase, though I won't be needing a new bottle any time soon.
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)
mkf96 6/26/2011 4:03:00 PM
Very very good product for the price range. It really does give a matte finish. Only problem is that I had oily skin which goes shiny after a while and the powder doesn't last very long. But for a product so cheap you can't expect everything :)
Liquid -Vichy - Aera Teint Pure Fluid Foundation Finish Up to 12 Hour Wear
mkf96 5/28/2011 12:01:00 PM
The only foundation that I found that is near-light enough for my skin (still a bit too dark) It gives a nice, natural finish and a slight glow :) However, i hae acne prone skin, and it didn't do much to hide spots or redness. The lightest colour is slightly pinkish, and acne prone skin is always advised to pick a foundation with a yellowish tone. Also, it's extremely runny. I have to be really careful when using the pump - once it all sprayed all over my dressing table. I'd probably buy this again, along with a goooood concealer, but if you have generally good skin and an even skin tone, I'd definitely recommend it :)
Styling Products -Wella - Shock Waves Frizz Free Cream
mkf96 4/17/2011 5:07:00 PM
Okay, I actually have bought the "Wella Shock Waves Recreate Styling Putty," but that produt isn't listed. It's was dirt cheap and a friend said it was good, so I purchased it. It is a weird green colour and I was not impressed at first, but when you actually put it on your hair it completely disappears yet hold your messed-up look for ages with no frizz. Plus, it actually smells DIVINE! I LOVE Wella, they've been going strong for years and they just keep getting better :)
It's good for my skin and it's good looking too :) Really good coverage and it hides the red tone of my skin... I also love the spf 15 as I burn easily and often forget to apply sunscreen ;) Too expensive is my only fault :/ I like the lock on the pump, though, and for anyone with a voucher or a bit of cash to splash, this is a treat! Good colour range. I'm NC15
I don't get all the negative reviews. This is practically a foolproof product. My mother agrees :) Okay, if this wasn't working for all ye... Did ye use it twice a day for at least 6 months like it says to on the bottle? If not, that's how long you need to use it to get real results. I got real results. Oh and only use one r two drops for your whole face or you'll break out.
Moisturizers -Vichy - Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care
mkf96 4/8/2011 2:54:00 PM
I don't like all these immaturely written reviews on this products stating "DO NOT BUY!!!!!!" It varies from person to person but I really like this product and I reccommend it. It has good ingredients, hydrates my skin but leaves it shine free and it smells good :) Plus, it really did clear up my skin. snaps from me! :) x
Love Love LOVE! This is my overall fave nailpolish :) It doesn't chip easily and is AMAZING for bright colour ranges :) And it's dirt cheap. A fine big bottle of the stuff too. Can't go wrong. Actual faultless x
No one on this can argue that the smell isn't amazing. It is HEAVENLY. So refreshing and energising. I fell in love at first whiff <3 The product itself does nothing for my skin.it doesn't make it soft or dry or anything, but I don't mind because I love the smell :) This product was kind of expensive (as all Body Shop stuff is) so I found myself really saving the shower gel for special occasions, I don't wanna waste it. I will repurchase, for the smell alone - if it ever runs out ;)
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
mkf96 3/20/2011 1:05:00 PM
This is great eyeliner! It's sooo soft to put on, and is a great base underneath mascara. It smudges quite easily though. I will not be buying this again, only because it's so expensive. If money was no object, I would definitely buy again.
Moisturizers -The Body Shop - Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion
mkf96 3/20/2011 1:02:00 PM
This is okay. I bought it on impulse, despite my mother saying that she didn't tend to like the Body Shop's skin clearing stuff. (mother knows best, right?) I usually love the Body Shop, bu this was no wonder product. Yes it hydrates and smells lovely, but it didn't seem to do anything to help with my spots (I have very bad acne, and scarring) I will not buy this again, it might be ok for sufferers of mild acne or the one spot her and there, but not for me. Quite expensive too.
LOVE THIS PRODUCT :) I seriously have probably the shortest eyelashes in the world - my fault, I have a habit of pulling them out - but when I put a layer of black eyeliner (pencil) on my waterline and tightline of my eye and then follow with Falsies and my lashes look amazing. For all of the people who dislike this product, are you sure you're using the brush the right way? it says on the tube to use the brush so it curves upwards. Alot of my friends were using it the wrong way. I will buy this again. I already have bought it again. Genius.
