Skincare - Face -Dickinson's Brands -Dickinson's Witch Hazel

Its a good toner for minimizing pores. It has a scent that smells like an alcoholic beverage. After using it for 2 weeks it has a burning sensation on my face. I think my skin is just too sensitive for this product.


Lip Gloss -Unlisted Brand -Seraphine Botanicals Berry + Juice - 100% Vegan Lip Gel

I have this in Rose Currant, a "sheer rosewood with subtle shimmer," which is just about right. Lovely lip gloss, smells like watermelon bubble gum - a bit cloying and sweet but the scent fades quickly. Square cross-section and transparent body, with doe foot wand attached to the white cap.

Fragrances -Juicy Couture -Oui! Eau de Parfum

The starring note of watermelon in Oui instantly reminds me of summer beach holidays when I was little, as there was always someone selling fresh fruit on the beach in Corfu. I can pick up the lemon & pear as well and usually love these notes, however the floral notes are very quick to develop and dilute them.

The floral notes are quite defined, which will likely be the point that makes up your mind over if you like or disconnect from this fragrance; I think that both jasmine and tuberose are love it or hate it notes when mixed with other florals. The base note of musk develops alongside the floral notes and lingers throughout Oui's five to six hour wear time.

As the floral notes begin to fade away, the woody notes and light amber sweeten the fragrance - I can't quite decide if the woody notes here are slightly salty, or if I'm tricking myself with lingering holiday memories.

All in all Oui is a pleasant spring/summer option and if you enjoy Escada's range of summer fragrances, then you'll enjoy this too. I'm enjoying my bottle, but I doubt that Oui is something that I'd buy for myself, as it isn't anything unique and the longevity isn't anything amazing for the price.

Official scent notes: Watermelon, lemon, pear, acai berry, tea, jasmine absolute, wild tuberose, honeysuckle, amber musk and techno woods.

Love this. Not a huge fan of matte colors, but really enjoy using this by itself. The bottle lasts FOREVER (seriously, had mine for 3 years and it is still usable).

Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden -My Fifth Avenue Eau de Parfum

on 4/22/2019 9:09:00 AM

It's tricky to describe My Fifth Avenue - it just is what it is, no apologies. It's quite a simple effort, but the uncluttered feeling of the scent notes is charming; a fresh citrus blend, with clean florals, all resting on a clear woody musk. I like that this is stripped back and uncomplicated. If you enjoy lily notes in your fragrances, then you'll probably love My Fifth Avenue; I've never come across such a authentic lily note before.

The combination of orris and cedar adds a vaguely masculine vibe to My Fifth Avenue. Definitely gives the fragrance some individuality, but this combination can clash with the calm, uncluttered vibe that My Fifth Avenue had going on at first; I find the base notes bit out of place with the freshness in the top and heart.

Official scent notes; lemon, mandarin orange, violet leaves, lotus, jasmine, hedione, lily-of-the-valley, pear, rose, musk, amberwood, orris and cedar.


The citrus blend, watery pear and lily, airy musk and masculine base notes mix to make the fragrance seem 'chilly' to me, which stops me from truly enjoying My Fifth Avenue. Plus this is quite a linear fragrance. So whilst I'll use up my bottle without complaint, I wouldn't rebuy it - I like warm, cuddly scent notes in my fragrances and I don't detect any of the sweeter & intimate accords enough in this.

Candles -NEST Fragrances -Rose Noir & Oud

I love NEST candles but I am really on the fence about this one. I bought it without trying it first based on the rave reviews it's gotten on Amazon, but like all fragrances, it really does come down to a matter of personal taste. The ingredients, according to the package, are Rose de mai and Smoky Oud (of course) and also incense, black leather and patchouli for a "sultry floral fragrance". It is definitely floral, but I don't really smell the oud - to me, it comes across as a fruity-floral which, frankly, is not my favourite fragrance category. It does smell expensive and well-made, though, not like a drugstore mass-market fruity floral, and like all NEST candles, it has very good throw (I really hate it when I buy a candle and I can't smell it as it's burning - it makes me feel that I wasted my money). You can smell Rose Noir & Oud even when the candle is not lit. The bottom line is, I wouldn't buy it again, but I'm sure that other people would love it.

Cleansers -Fresh -Soy Face Cleanser

on 4/22/2019 9:00:00 AM

This cleanser comes in a tube with a pump squirt dispenser. The product has a thick, white, creamy, almost gel-like consistency. Actually, it feels like a cream moisturizer with a little more slip. Easy to spread on the face and work around to dissolve makeup. It seems to do a very good job and rinses away fairly cleanly.

Dry Shampoo -Unlisted Brand -Girlz Only Haircare - Dry Shampoo

MOST DISGUSTING DRY SHAMPOO IVE EVER TRIED. I have literally never hated a product so much in my life. I sprayed this dry shampoo just as I would any other. Instantly turned my hair greasy- I’ve seen videos of people who haven’t washed their hair for a year and their hair looks and smelt nicer. Don’t even get me started on the smell. At first it’s all good & fine, but just wait until you wash it. I just finished washing my hair and it smells like I’ve just crawled out of a damn sewer. And the more i wash my hair the more it smells disgusting. Not even salon grade clarifying shampoo can save me now. And the worst part of all is that my sister warned me about it. So I know it’s not just me or my hair it stuffed her up too. Anyways, it’s 10:54pm right now and I’m actually gagging at the smell of my own hair. Hope ur happy GIRLZ only or whatever ur called because you’ve actually ruined my life.

BB Cream -Unlisted Brand -The Creme Shop BB Creme SPF 30

I am on the hunt for a new BB cream with mineral SPF. This appears to be exclusive to CVS and retails for $17.99. I am NC25/AAB and the Medium shade is an excellent match. I also like that it has mineral sunscreen yet does not leave a whitish cast. The coverage is medium to full, depending on your application technique. Product is creamy and easy to work with - I apply with fingertips after moisturizer and primer. Does not feel drying on my combo skin. Natural finish. Like any other BB cream, it will collect under dry patches, so be sure to exfoliate and moisturize and prime as needed. So far, I am very pleased with this impulse purchase.


Mascara -L'Oreal Paris -Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara

I have extremely long natural eyelashes (go ahead, hate me) but they are very fair and therefore need a deep colour, low clump mascara. I usually avoid anything with the word “volume” in it - I need definition, not volume - but the plastic brush is great at separating lashes. The thin tip makes it easier to get those corner lashes as well. Mostly, I love that it’s super easy to find in the mornings because of its shiny gold colour 😅 Much easier than the standard black tube.
