Dec/20/2015

I kind of discovered this by fluke - I went to the counter to buy the Estée Lauder CC cream (read a review and needed to give it a go) and this being my first departure from Clarins' tinted moisturiser in 20 years, after chatting to the SA realised that I'd need to use a separate moisturiser; to which she gave me a sample of this potion of goodness and wonder.

The results …

Self Tanners - ELEMIS - Total glow bronzing body lotion

Jun/05/2015

I'm seriously impressed with this gradual tanning lotion - it is by far the best I've ever tried.

Thanks to a slow start to summer my legs were nowhere near the colour of my arms and face - but after just two applications I'm no longer mismatched and am good to get my legs out.

I'm not a lover of fake tan - but I do like gradual tanners as I prefer to …

I love this so much I've had to re-purchase after a couple of months.

Unlike some Essie colours you do need to apply three thin coats to get the desired creamy pastel effect - but it's worth it. ...I also think that the three layer thing makes me more careful when applying - which makes my manicure last longer; I can usually get a good four days with this colour (and …

Polishes - Nails Inc. - Gel Effect - St. James

Apr/07/2015

For such a high price point this has to be one of the most underwhelming nail polishes I've ever had the misfortune to waste my money on.

The colour is pretty and the initial effect good (it self levels and with a top coat gives a gel-like finish) but that's as good as it gets.

What I didn't like:

The packaging - the rectangle top wasn't that …

This product has made me look forward to my night time routine all over again - I just love it.

After years of using the Lancome Genefique/ Visionnaire combo I was keen to try something new; I received a sample of this from Space NK and was so blown away by the results after just one application that I went back the next day to purchase.

I use this product at night and …

Lotions/ Creams - Laura Mercier - Fresh Fig Hand Cream

Despite really wanting to, I don't like this hand cream.

A fan of most things Laura Mercier I was mightily disappointed with this. The smell is sickly sweet and for me, pretty off putting.

With a nice consistency the cream leaves a nice film on hands but doesn't actually do much more than anything superficial - my hands are still dry and don't feel …

Wow! This mascara is simply phenomenal.

Super excited to receive this (I read the reviews and was sold), I initially wasn't impressed by the mascara wand; it's completely different from the fat brushes I usually go for (my lashes, by the way are rubbish - fine and pretty short, they need all the volumising and lengthening I can throw at them).

My mistake on day …

May/12/2014

At £32.50 for 125ml this cleanser is not cheap - but my oh my is it amazing and worth every single penny!

I'd been a loyal fan of Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish for a decade (didn't deviate once) but decided that the time had come for a change; there wasn't anything particularly wrong - think I was feeling a bit 'meh!'

I decided on …

Hmmm. Now, I'm torn by this product...

I'd done my research online before buying and knew that it was meant to reduce puffiness, conceal and provide SPF - however I was surprised when the SA tried to convince me that it'd be the only (day) eye treatment I'd need.

I'm in my late thirties and am, quite frankly, obsessed with lines & wrinkles. I …

Polishes - Barry M - Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint - Greenberry

Jul/28/2013

I love the formulation of the Gelly Hi-Shines - thick, glossy and incredibly long lasting (I always get at least a week before my need to change colour steps in) these polishes come in at an incredible price point. ...Lots of bang for your buck!

I'm not one to wear green on my nails (mint's as far as I'll usually go) but the Greenberry shade caught my eye and is just …
