Made my eyelashes look like tarantula legs - yuck. Very wet formula and smudged when wet. After a couple of hours it flaked and fell under my eyes. Then getting home I couldn't wait to take it off, it resisted four pads soaked in bioderma and left me with raccoon eyes. Maybe twas user error but I hated it. I know those who love it but I'm going back to tubing mascara. Two lippies …Read more

This has all the class and elegance of an old school chypre. It is a trifle powdery, soft and subtle but it lasts ages on my skin. I don't get a massive rose presence which is supposed to be there. My skin amplifies creamy woods. It is warm and cuddly like a scented hug. May I never be without it. I have it and Joy but I reach for this more often.

Same creamy note that appeared in Amarathine. I miss both of them and wait hopefully for it to turn up in another Pen scent. They always seem to d/c the best ones. I'll never forgive them for killing off Violetta. Can't buy again but I would in a heartbeat.

Styling Products - John Frieda - Beach Blonde Sea Waves Salt Spray [reformulated]

Great for my wavy hair which has just been cut into a lob. However it will not work on thin limp hair. Use common sense, it will not work miracles and more than serum will give me the poker straight shiny hair I wanted as a teenager. Use your head and buy products that are made to work with your type of hair. All hair can look beautiful if you accept and work with what you got.

Pros: cruelty free, no parabens, no nasty chemicals. It is packed with fantastic oils and moisturizes brilliantly.

Cons: it never dries, my arms were treated 20 minutes ago and they are sticking to my leather chair. Also what is that awful smell? It's like someone left an empty pineapple can in a dumpster for a week -ugh! Sorry great product but can't stand the smell.

I don't find this cologne heavy or overly sweet. It reminds me of Neroli Portofino or maybe a bit of Miller Harris Petitgrain. Staying power not great and wears close to the skin but pleasant after a shower in hot weather. Not world shaking but pretty.

I have been looking for ages for a TM/primer for dry skin and this one is perfect. It is great for my fair skin, blurs out fine lines and has an spf of 15. I wear a powder foundation and it goes on over this like a dream taking away the flat look powder sometimes gives you. If you have oily skin this is not for you. Your foundation will slip off especially if you don't set it. Still …Read more

I have held off from reviewing this as I remember the original as my Mum liked it. It was a real heavy hitter and one bottle lasted years. So with trepidation, and in desperate need of finding a spicy perfume to gift, I bought a bottle. Firstly it's not half bad. Not the same, what is, but still redolent of the original. For those of you who have been devastated by the reform of …Read more

highly allergic to this with burning itching eyes. This is a shame because I liked the lengthening features and it looked natural. But I needed antihistamine eye drops.
