I have really come to like Anita Grant's Lippy Pucker lip tints ...A LOT!!

I wasn't sure to begin with - I got two at Christmas and they were rock hard and had to be rubbed pretty hard on lips (giving that temporary flush). A few weeks ago I tried them again and found that they are by far the best in terms of conditioning and hydrating my lips, so I started using them a lot …

Lip Treatments - Pacifica - Color Quench Lip Tint

Jan/24/2015

I may have found my ideal lip tint balm! In Sugared Fig.

Ingredients: Much more natural than average (a "2" on ewg.org) and whilst other lip products can irritate my lips, this hasn't.

Texture: Softening and only very slightly sticky (nowhere near enough to put me off) - feels good to put on.

Scent: Mine smells just a little like Play-Doh, but …

Top/Base Coats - Nails Inc. - Bridge the Ridge Base Coat

Aug/22/2013

I really like this! I was looking for a new base coat and was happy with my old Nails Inc. Underground base coat, so looked at their range again.

I chose Bridge the Ridge because it is a pink colour and I had also been looking for something that gives a simple, healthy, translucent pink colour. (Tried Essie "Glove Service", which is nice but more clear than pink on my …

Perfectly nice polish, just not quite the natural, translucent pink I was hoping for.

I was recently looking for a new base coat, though, and found Nails Inc. "Bridge the Ridge Base Coat" - and discovered that a coat or two gives my nails that shiny, healthy pink colour! Plus, since it's a base coat, it's all I need.

Lotions/ Creams - Aubrey Organics - Collagen and Almond Enriching and Moisturizing Lotion

Mar/13/2013

Sometime in 2012 they changed the formula without any indication. So, having loved the old A.O. Collagen & Almond lotion, I bought a new bottle and it's a HUGE disappointment. The new scent is overwhelmingly sweet (much more so than before) and, worse, something in it irritates my skin badly. I feel cheated that they changed it without warning. They say they just changed the way they …Read more

I'm reviewing the UK Pomegranate version.

I thought I'd wait until I had used this for a while before posting a review. ...So that I know for sure that I like it a lot!!!

I like to try lots of different products so for me to be on my fourth (bigger size) bottle of this rather than be onto something new says a lot.

The scent is OK, but doesn't …

Sep/22/2010

I purchased the Sheer Infusion Mineral Renewal body lotion. It's in an upsidedown, squeezy bottle which I found very handy. The scent isn't too bad. Not heavenly, but not unpleasant and doesn't hang around long anyway. Maybe it does hydrate skin well - I got the feeling my skin felt firmer and better moisturized, but I only used it for a month or so because of the real …Read more

Toners - Unlisted Brand - Drugstore Witch hazel

Mar/07/2010

My Boots pure distilled witch hazel isn't glamorous, but I like it! I mix mine with prill water and add lavender and ylang ylang EOs (and a drop or two of grapefruit seed extract to preserve) and it seems to make a nice toner. No dryness or extra oiliness and definitely cleaner pores. I'm on my second bottle and, whilst I clicked that I'd buy it again, I'm just taking it as …Read more

Concealers - Unlisted Brand - Barbara Daly for Tesco Light-Effect concealer pen

1.0

fromFace88

Feb/13/2010

I was disappointed with this. Barbara Daly products are normally pretty effective as well as good value, but this is an exception - on me anyway. It's not an easy consistency to work with: the brush felt clogged after one use and it doesn't smooth on very well, which means it doesn't blend well. The colour is surprisingly dark for a one-colour-for-everyone concealer that is …Read more

Feb/13/2010

I don't have dandruff but I wanted an efficient and gentle (and clear) shampoo that is easier to get hold of than Aubrey Organics - so I bought this from my local Body Shop. I really like it. It doesn't do anything amazing - it just does a good job and I like the clean, fresh smell. It does what it's supposed to, it cleans my hair and scalp gently. The fact that I'm on my …Read more
