Cleansers - Palmer's - Gentle Daily Cleanser

3.0

May/14/2011

I tried this to give the facial range of Palmers another chance after a horrid experience with the foaming milk cleanser. I decided to try this one as it is unscented and the smell of the other cleanser Palmers released is gag-worthy.
A 'meh' experience, slight improvement. It foams very well and I like facial cleanser that come in a pump action bottle. However, my skin has been …

Cleansers - Palmer's - Skin Success Facial Milk Foaming Cleanser

May/14/2011

I got very, very excited when I heard Palmers were releasing a facial range. You can imagine my disappointment when I tried it.
I expected the products to smell and feel about the same as their body lotions, but it was the complete opposite! I have combo skin, however this cleanser still made my face feel too dry. The texture is not creamy enough and it still did not remove all of my …

Lip Treatments - Palmer's - Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Lip Balm with Vitamin E & SPF 15

May/14/2011

This has been my favourite lip balm thus far. It nourishes my lips and has no unpleasant taste or smell.
However, I do have a couple of gripes. The packaging leaves a lot to be desired, after awhile the mechanism in the tube breaks down and you have to force the gloss back into the tube.
It also does not glide on easily in cooler weather. It get into the danger of crumbling, and I …

Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Almond Oil Daily Hand & Nail Cream

Bit of a 'meh' experience. It feels really greasy, barely absorbs and my hands have been looking more ravaged since I have been using this. Has a adorable smell, but its not worth it. Also its very expensive for the amount that you get, but that shouldn't be a suprise considering its from the Body Shop.
However, I do admire the Body Shop for what they are trying to achieve …

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

Any other toners are well removed from my radar thanks to this. I use it after cleansing to ensure that all makeup is removed. Especially on my nose, forehead and chin as I have massive pores and some oiliness in those areas. Its gentle as well, I may have combo skin, but I don't like it to feel taunt and dry. In a way, its a nourishing toner that is very gentle. Some may not like the scent …Read more

This is the best body moisturiser for my skin, I have only been using it for about a month. Put it on after I shower and it absorbs easily and my skin feels silky. My boyfriend even commented on how soft my skin is.
What really sold me on this product was how it left my skin on the butt cheeks, don't laugh, hear me out. For years since late adolescence I have had tiny whiteheads and …

May/14/2011

I couldn't wait to get rid of this! It had a horrid taste and smell, and my lips did not feel nourished at all. Just an icky and uncomfortable experience all round
I have stated before that I really want to like Burt's Bees products, but all of my experiences with this range have been very underwhelming. Its such a shame as I like the idea of natural products which do not test on …

Cleansers - Burt's Bees - Deep Cleansing Cream with Soap Bark and Chamomile

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/14/2011

I really wanted to like this, I like the idea of Burt's Bees, but alas it was the worst cleanser I have ever tried. I have combo skin, quite oily on my nose, forehead and jawline. After using this, my skin felt too dry, taunt and stripped of any natural moisture. The scent I found to be challenging, as it was too 'antiseptic' for my taste. The irony is that it did not cleanse away …Read more

Moisturizers - Yes To - Carrots Day Cream

4.0

May/14/2011

This is my weekend day moisturiser cream as I wear the 'Yes To' one with sunscreen on work days. It indicates that its useful for dry skin, however I have combo skin and it works like a charm. It leaves my skin silky and soft and it absorbs very well. It feels like a treat every time I use it.
Some are displeased with the smell, usually I don't like a fragrance on my skin. In …

Cleansers - Yes To - Carrots C is for Clean Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser

Created with Sketch.

May/14/2011

This is the first product I have tried in the Yes to range as a friend recommended it to me. I have been obsessed ever since. This is the best cleanser for my skin, and I have tried many brands. I have pores the size of moon craters on my nose and forehead, and I found that after using this product for a couple of weeks, my skin became more refined and smooth. The exfoliating granules are so …Read more
