This is a great toner, one of my favourite toners together with the Liz Earl instant boost toner I love the smell, it really smells of apricots. As i ordered it online, when i received the parcel I could already smell the apricot, and was worried the bottle got broken. But luckily all was fine It is very soft andd hydrating and spray it lightly over my face and let it evaporate before applying a serum. Also great to refresh your face during the day, it is very uplifting. It is pricey as is the entire elemis range, but the bottle lasts a long time and you can find great deals on the web or even qvc
Another excellent product from clientele range. I got this in a set from QVC, which made it very affordable. I use it daily, in the morning and it immediately sinks in my skin, my skin just drinks it and it leaves my face smooth and fresh. I have been using it for 2 months now and I can see my skin is really benefitting from this lightweight but full packed power serum. It is excellent under my moisturizer and my face stays hydrated till the evening. Absolutely HG and I hope they will never discontinue this serum
Moisturizers -Clientele - Elastology Firming Night Cream

this is one of my favourite nighttime moisturzers, it plumps and hydrates my skin immediately. In the morning, my face still looks dewy and hydrated. I will not be without this product
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - Rose Velvet Hand Cream

This is one of my favourite handcreams: it softens your hands immediately without leaving them greasy. It has indeed a strong rose scent, but this does not bother me. In fact it keeps my hands fresh for hours. Ideal for your handbag.

just ordered my second bottle of this gorgeous serum. Smells lovely and has a nice texture, it sinks in immediately. I use it in the morning after my toner and before moistuirzing, and it brightens and hydrates my skin. A bottle lasts 3 months, and it is very cheap in comparison with other serums. My skin is normal/combination and this serum is just perfect, definitely HG!
Primer/ Corrector -Philosophy - The Present Clear Makeup

excellent primer, it leaves my skin soft and does not clog my pores.I use this under my MMU (LilyLoLo) and it is a perfect base I prefer it to the SB primer, or the Clarins instant smooth The product is not cheap at £20, but it will last a long time, and is easier to use than the very unpractical SB pump bottle
Treatments -Nuxe - Aroma Vaillance Anti-wrinkle moisturizing emulsion
nalasambi 8/21/2007 11:22:00 AM
I LOVE this moisturizer, which i use at night. I just purchased my second jar, and I definitely recommend it. The scent is quite herby , but blends in easily. It contains matrixyl, an anti wrinkle treatment, and I can see real results after a few weeks. In the morning my skin looks clear and it leaves my skin so soft and healthy. I am late thirties, combination skin, and I use the normal skin one. (there is also a moisturizer for sensitive skins) Nuxe is an excellent brand and if you can buy it from France, it is so much cheaper than her in the UK.
finally i found MMu that does not break me out. I don't have a sensitive skin, but BE gave me millia.... , also the colours are not great, too peachy-pinkie, too shiny Lilylolo is just perfect... i am NC 20-25, and there are 3 colours which are excellent for my skin colour; blondie-warm peach for winter/autumn and buff for spring/summer time. You need a good buffing brush to apply, since a perfect result depends on good buffing!!! I have SB brush and an excellent brush from Ultimate brushes that do the job perfectly My skin looks natural, and gives me a younger appearance, I am very pleased I found this company, based in the UK; fast shipping and reasonable PP. Finishing powder and blushes are great too
I am very impressed with this product. I was using regular liquid foundations for years, untill I changed to mineral make up, which i really like. Only the minerals are very messy, and impossible to carry with you. I have a pale-medium skintone (NC20-25), even skin, no scars or any problems, so I only need light-medium coverage, and this is perfect. I thought it would be too dark, but it is not, it gives you a healthy glow. I just add some BB bronzer or SB softlights on top and I am ready to go. Am really happy not to use foundations again, especially in summer time. The brush is not the best. It will do, but is not very soft.
Another great Nuxe product, I have to agree with all the comments below. I use it after the masque doux aromatique, which cleanses the skin, and i apply this masque Or I use it overnight, I appy the masque early evening, it absorbs quickly and you do not need to rinse it. Before I go to bed I do add my Nuxe aroma vaillance over it and in the morning my skin is the best!
I tried Nuxe products after reading good comments on this site, and I am really impressed so far. This is a great masque that clears the skin beautifully. The smell is quite herby and fresh. You leave it about 10-15 minutes and rinse it off wiht a sponge or cloth. (combination skin, drier cheeks) It can replace a exfoliator and it not harsh at all, your skin feels babysoft..... pores and wrinkles are less obvious Will buy again, defintely HG!!!!
I am always tempted to buy moisturizers, and I have a whole collection of them and spend a small fortune.... When I heard of the boots No 7 Protect and Pefect serum (that I will need to review in a few weeks time), I also bought this day moisturizer and eye cream. (Boots often have a 3=2 offer, well worth checking this out). I am very impressed by this cream, it is creamy but light, has a slight scent which disappears quick and sinks in very well, leaving your skin ready for make up if you want to. The combination of the serum and uplifting cream seems to work (using now for 6 weeks), I am 35 years andmy face is radiant and few lines around the eyes are less obvious. It beats any high end cream, and saves you £££ or $$$$, just give it a try! Only minus: the jar is not very hygenic, which is a common problem I ahve with all jar-creams.
This body firming cream is amazing. I like most products from L'Occitane and I was using the almond shower oil for some time, which I adore. I went to the L'Occitane shop, and the SA was pushing me to by the almond body oil, but I am not so keen to use oils to moisturize my body, because it can take a long time to sink in and i do not have time to wait... This cream is like whipping cream and smells delicious. Not to sweet, just perfect and i notice my skin not only feeling incredebily soft and hydrated, but firmer!! Packaging is very classy in a heavy glass jr, but not practical for travel. Only minus: really expensive at £31, double the price of other L'occitane body moisturizers, so I am quite hesitant to buy it again at this price, (but I probably will...) Would like to use it twice daily, but is too expensive.... :-(
As I have commented on the angelica conditioner, this is a great shampoo. Your hair feels so clean after use and has a herby, eaarthy smell. It does not lather extremely well, the instructions recommend to wash twice, but this is not a must. I will definitely rebuy this shamppo. The bottle is big, and lasts a long time.
I have to agree with most of the comments below. This is a perfect conditioner. My long hair is coloured, wavy/curly and tends to have drier ends. This conditioner , together with the shampoo leaves it in perfect silky condition. Even when my hair dries naturally, it looks beautiful. The smell is so different from all other conditioners i have ever used, fresh but not sweet or fruity. More herby and quite sharp, and i really love this. Just perfect!
