Gels/Soaps -Nivea - Bath Care Pampering Shower Oil
sissycha 1/16/2008 8:09:00 AM
Great! i love it. It's not supposed to foam up alot as that would derive alot of chemicals in the product. It turns milky once the water hits it. It leaves my skin soft with no oily residue and has a scent that disappears so it doesn't clash with any perfumes. Very good product and i'd recommend it.
Fragrances -Agent Provocateur - Agent Provocateur Eau Emotionnelle EDT

It's my HG. Very beautiful light scent. Not as strong as the EDP. I gave the packaging a low score as the little ring pull is sometimes difficult. But this seems to be the same problem with the other two scents. I've had many wonderful comments when i wear it. The scent seems to linger from the day into the night. I'm not a fan of the new Maitresse. The bottle is beautiful and very collectable but the scent is too heady for me.

A friend told me about this and I thought I'd give it a try. What have I got to lose? I've got combo-oily skin so anything would be a godsend. You recieve the cleanser in a handy plastic ziploc with muslin cloth. One pump of the creamy cleanser massaged on to dry skin over eyes, face and neck. Then rinse the cloth in hand-hot water, wring it out and gently polish off the cream. The eucalyptus oil is amazing (remniscent of noxema). Takes about three polishes. Rinse with cool water. My skin didn't feel tight or dry. The cloth does act as an exfoliator allowing the other ingredients to go to work. If I use it at night i follow up with the superbalm concentrate. As with all good things it takes time for the effects to show. Be patient and you'll see. I used one 100ml tube and noticed an immediate effect. I haven't turned back since and my skin has never looked better. I've strayed and tried other cleansers but seem to keep coming back to this. Just try it.
This rollerball concentrate is very handy to use. Just roll on the oil wherever you need to moisturise. I have combination oily skin and was a little weary of using this. It's proved itself by sorting out my oily t-zone and moisturising my dry cheeks. Roll on and massage in at night and wake up to soft skin. Used together with the cleanse and polish, my skin has improved so much breakouts are very rare now. I travel frequently and not only is this great for sorting out travel stressed skin the rollerball is convenient to use. Great for nails and cuticles as well.
Gels/Soaps -Jason Natural Cosmetics - Satin Shower Body Wash in Lavender
sissycha 10/22/2005 9:17:00 AM
I started with the hand wash and it was great so i thought i'd try out the body wash. Boy was i suprised. My skin dries easily and this didn't dry it out at all. The scent is really clean and you only require a little bit of for a really velvety lather. As with all products in the Jason line it contains natural ingredients the washes don't have any Lauryl / Laureth Sulfates in it which is very important to me (and you if you look in to it). it does what it says, "Never dries your skin". Just have a look at the ingredients. I took one lippy away because of the packaging but hey, it works and it doesn't look that bad in the shower. The pump is really good. If worse comes to worse just decant it. It might seem like a little bit more to pay at first but it's only because it's such a generous size bottle - 887ml/30 fl oz when compared to other washs, it works out to be almost three bottles in one.
Love it, love it. I've been using this for a long time now and can't find anything else as good. Used daily after a shower it leaves a lovely layer of cocoa butter sheen. It contains ground rice, almond, aduki bean, lavender and lemon oil, shea and cocoa butter. You can't go wrong with that combination. As per a fellow MUA reviewer suggested, try to step / turn away from the shower and use the scrub then rinse. If in the bath be quick or the cocoa butter in the scrub will melt. Is a touch pricey but worth it as there's no need for a body moisturiser.
Skincare - Face -Johnson & Johnson - pH 5.5 3-in-1 Facial Cleansing Cloths

I use this when I'm too lazy to do the full cleanse. It removes the day's make up but takes about 2 wipes to do it. The wipes done't irritate or dry my skin and are a reasonable price for a disposable product. They're one downfall would have to be in the removal of waterproof mascara. I find if you hold the wipe gently on the eyelashes for a few seconds the mascara comes off easier. They're great for travelling and I'm still purchasing them.
Nice thick hand cream. Absorbs well and would buy again. You don't need to use alot so the tube does go along way.
Pressed Powders -Physicians Formula - Multi-Colored Corrector- GREEN
sissycha 6/11/2005 6:49:00 PM
What a lovely powder! Just brush on and the redness is gone. It's a finely milled powder and does everything it claims. As the others have said, the compact's design just needs to be tweaked. The brush is cute but flipping back and forth between the powder and the mirror is awkward and the mirror sometimes gets a light coating of the powder. It's an excellent product and has become one of my HG products.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Voluminous Waterproof Mascara in Soft Black [DISCONTINUED]
sissycha 5/10/2005 6:11:00 PM
I have straight asian lashes and takes alot to hold a curl. I find waterproof mascaras hold a curl better than normal mascaras. Voluminous is great for holding the curl and has a nice consistency. They don't sell the waterproof one in the UK so when friends come over i get an order in or when i go to N. America to pick up a few tubes at CVS. Why doesn't L'oreal sell waterproof in the UK? this is a HG mascara.

No sense slagging of the fragrance if it doesn't suit you. Everyone's different as we all know. I love AP and after years of looking for a HG scent this is it. I love the kitch design of the bottle and the way the scent develops as the day goes on. Be warned... only one gentle squirt is all that is required. Not to be treated like a body spray or eau de toilette. it is parfum. It's a scent draws men closer to you. As a fellow MUA says, "it's for a woman not a girl"
On the recommendation of everyone here at MUA, i went out and got myself a jar of this great cream. Very impressed! I've tried many different creams and this is as good,if not better than many of the high end creams currently available. Although it has a heavy consistancy it sinks in overnight. I have combination skin that tends to be sensitive at times and this left me with glowing, fresh feeling skin in the morning. Love the glass jar as well. Give it a try, what's six quid? Will continue to use.
Palettes -BeneFit Cosmetics - Decked out Dandelion
sissycha 1/22/2005 2:03:00 PM
I purchased this on the premise that it would be a handy pallette to carry around. not too pleased when i opened it up to use. the dandelion was of such poor quality i ended up taking back to the counter and exchanging it for one where the dandelion would actually adhere to the brush. Also ended up discussing with the sales consultant about the colour of the dandelion in the pallette being completely different from the original. she advised it was the same powder but you could tell she agreed with me after we tested it out. the rest of the colours in the set are nice but will stick to the indivitual benefit products.
I have sensitive skin and this was a dream to use. Light exfoliation but a thin, dry, layer exfoliates better. Once rinsed,the result was soft,glowing,moisturised skin. it is definetly a 3 in 1 mask that does what it says. Performs better than some high end masks.
