Feb/06/2012

This is my all time favourite powder. I use the shade #21 which is light and yellow toned. Described as a moist, creamy, and velvety-smooth powder pact with SPF25 PA++ containing sweet potato and milk extracts. My skin had been getting a little dry in certain areas thanks to the cold British winter weather. All my other powders were making my skin look flakey. This one does not. I apply with a …Read more

Crème - Laura Mercier - Crème Smooth Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Quite a nice foundation but not worth the £40 price-tag at all! For reference I have normal/combo sensitive skin with a slight yellow undertone.

I purchased 2 shades, porcelain ivory for my normal skin colour and tawny beige for when I use self tanner. Both shades suit me perfectly when used for their purpose. Here are a description of the shades:

Cleansers - Mario Badescu - Enzyme Cleansing Gel

I really like this cleanser. I use it in the morning for a gentle wash that won't strip my skin of moisture or leave it irritated. I got a 8oz bottle for about £11 which I don't think is too bad. This is a non-foaming cleanser but leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin or break me out. The papaya extract gives mild exfoliation and has an added …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Estée Lauder - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex [REFORMULATED]

Holy smokes...I'm suprised at how much I like this stuff. Since giving birth just under 7 months ago, my skin started getting worse and worse, until I had mild acne all along my cheekbones and on my chin. I never had any acne in my life before giving birth, so was really desperate and at a loss for what to do. I'd read some reviews on the Advanced Night Repair serum and decided to give …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Anne French Deep Cleansing Milk

Nov/26/2010

I tried this about a year ago. Usually I use cleansing oils as my pre-cleanser, but I wanted something more travel friendly and cheap. I got this for just under £4 in Superdrug, but you can get it cheaper in Boots or Savers I think. I have sensitive skin and this irritated it quite badly; it left my skin red and feeling itchy. It also stung my eyes and left them red and swollen. Very heavily …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Good things - stay clear purifying cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/24/2010

At first, I liked this quite a lot. It cleansed my skin without drying and left it feeling clean yet hydrated. Then I started getting breakouts all over my forehead, a place where I rarely if ever break out. My skin began to get dry. I have normal-combo oily skin so it was strange for my skin to suddenly start flaking. Stopped using it and the breakouts went along with the dryness. I continued …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Mentholatum Acnes Medicated Creamy Wash

Nov/24/2010

Mentholatum Acnes is a really popular brand for bad skin in Korea, and my best friend who is Korean recommended me to try it as I'd been breaking out quite badly on my chin and along my cheekbones.


It claims to enhance the skin's resistance to prevent acne, pimple scars and visible pores. It does this by disinfecting acnegenic bacteria and removing the root of acne …

This is my first body spray (!!!) and this was the one I picked based on the glowing reviews here on MUA. I'm very thankful to all you lovely ladies who shared your reviews.


Described as a blend of toasted vanilla, pink peony and raspberry. I can detect all of this when I spritz this on my self - a light floral note, very detectable raspberry and a subtle hint of warm …
