Concealers - Bourjois - Radiance Reveal Concealer

An affordable concealer for fair-skinned gals (sadly, only 3 shades in the range!).
It offers great coverage, brightens your complexion and is fairly moisturising.

Perfect for under the eye, it leaves a dewy finish on the skin and holds up throughout the day.
I use the shade 01 - Ivory and I will sometimes set it with powder for a matte look.
The packaging isn't so …

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

5.0

Definitely worth the hype.

Fragrance-free balm, suitable for sensitive skin and melts into a silky oil as you rub it on to your face.
Removes waterproof eye make-up with ease.

As a lazy gal, I usually rub it into my skin before hopping into the shower where I’ll rinse it off using a face sponge. Thereafter I wash my face using the Nuxe Aquabella purifying gel cleanser …

Treatments (Eye) - NUXE - Anti-Fatigue Moisturising Eye Cream

3.0

2 months ago

Lightly fragranced, hydrating and lovely texture. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin, I usually get dry skin/eczema on my eyelids.

It is a bit pricey and I didn’t see any results after months of use. I believe it has been discontinued.
Replaced by the new Multi-correction eye balm gel Crème prodigieuse boost.

This product is amazing, The almond milk one has such a sweet, soft, heavenly scent.
I love that it leaves your skin feeling hydrated without the sticky sensation. A little on the pricey side for a body lotion, but it is cheaper than the body butter.

Pros
- Lightweight texture (no sticky feeling)
- Skin feels hydrated
- Can be used on sensitive skin
- Great …

Powder - Yardley London - Absolute Translucent Loose Powder

No idea how the packaging is supposed to work. I usually end up with powder all over the place...

But an absolute bargain! The amount of product you get is insane. A little goes a long way, as you tend to look a bit cakey. Daily use, it probably lasts about a year (if not longer, dependent on how much I mess).

I got annoyed with the packaging and opted for the Essence matte …

Foundations - Bourjois - 123 Perfect CC Cream

Weirdly liked this more than the City Radiance Foundation.
Found that it provided more coverage and the colour matched me better.

I am a MAC NC 15 i.e. pale with a yellow/cool undertone and wore this in the Shade '31 Ivory'. It does oxidise slightly, but overall it's not bad, especially for everyday wear.

Note: You definitely have to set it, otherwise …

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Pep-Start Hydro Rush Moisturizer SPF 20

Underwhelming.
Merely an overpriced basic moisturiser with SPF. I won't buy it again.

I have combination-dry skin and was looking for a richer face cream for the winter months, without skimping on sunscreen. Needless to say, I was disappointed. My skin does not feel hydrated nor soft/supple after several uses. I don't feel that it benefited my skin in any way …

I hate spending ridiculous amounts of money on make-up when I can achieve the same effect with an affordable product.

This blusher is perfect. I am a pale whale and used the shade 'Natural Beauty' which wasn't too pink nor coral.
The pigment is good, it applies smoothly to the skin and doesn't cake/flake. A pot lasted about 8 months, with daily use, if not …

This stuff is the bee's knees.

Since I discovered it way back when, I haven't had any other shaving gel/foam/cream come close to this one!
I still find myself coming back to it...

It is a little pricey when compared to other brands; but I use it sparingly and will be sure to scrape the bottom of the tub to get my money's worth.

I shave about once …

Liquid - Bourjois - City Radiance Foundation

Well-priced, decent formula for everyday wear - especially for humans with pale complexions and cool/yellow undertones.

As a make-up lover, I am always on the hunt for cheap foundations that work well and match my skin tone. (I am a MAC NC15 gal, with fair/pink areas, the struggle is real).

I recently switched to The Body Shop Stay Matte Foundation (Railay Beach) but decided …
