Hair Styling Tools - Unlisted Brand - Tangle Teezer

5.0

Apr/08/2013

I have tail-bone length, fine but thick hair with a tendency towards waves and even curls if left to its own devices. It is not particularly tangle prone, but very sensitive to snagging and pulling.

I thought I would never find a brush I like quite as much as my Mason Pearson mixed Popular brush, which in my opinion is all but the perfect brush except for the price and the fact that it …

Eye Primer - Lumene - Beauty Base Eye Makeup Base

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/17/2012

This is a rather dry eye shadow primer, more of a concealer/cream texture than it is a lotion. This means that it is a bit more difficult to blend than the famous UDPP and TFSI without pulling on the lid and especially if you use too much. The trick to it is to just take a pinprick on your little finger (my ring finger is too big for the task) and then dot the small amount on before patting it on …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - False Lash Telescopic

5.0

Aug/17/2012

I have rather dark lashes naturally and so I tend to favour black mascaras and simply skip mascara for a more natural look. I never thought the day would come when I found a mascara so black that it almost is too black, but this is it. This is the blackest of black mascaras.

Now, with all mascaras you have to keep in mind that they can't create full, fluttery lashes if you …

Fragrances - Elizabeth Arden - Taylor Swift Wonderstruck

Sweet, sugary fruits with a soapy undertone...This smells like a school girl, a cloud of sweet fruits and soap. Not exactly a cheap scent, but too much of a young girl who have yet to learn that less is more to appeal to me.

To make matters worse, I can pick up something very similar, for a fraction of the price, in my food store. True, this perfume does not have an alcohol undertone …

Shampoo - KORRES Natural Products - Laurel and Echinacea Shampoo for Dry Scalp

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/08/2011

I have seborrhoea, which can essentially be described as a very bad case of oily, itchy dandruff or an adult version of cradle cap. To keep this in check with ordinary shampoos I need to wash every single day, since they just can't tackle the build-up of dry and oily skin if I go longer between washes.

With this shampoo I've found I can stretch washes four days. So wash on …

Hair Treatments - Aussie - 3 Minute Miracle Frizz Remedy

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/17/2011

In a conditioner, and especially a deep conditioner, I look for something that makes my hair soft, easy to detangle and helps tame my fine mixed hair that both has curls, waves and straight bits all intermingled which usually creates quite some frizz.

This conditioner is one of few that I can just slather my hair in in the shower, without having detangled before, and come out with …

Gels/ Soaps - The Body Shop - Earth Lovers Watermelon & Eucalyptus Shower Gel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/13/2011

The earth lover's shower gel line have completely converted me into a shower gel addict. I used to be a die hard soap fan, since I just found shower gels to be liquid soap (and more expensive per use). Not so in the case of this shower gel.

This shower gel cleanses gently but effectively, leaving sensitive skin like mine soft and smooth and not red after showering (which is a …

Lotions/ Creams - KORRES Natural Products - Hand Cream with real thyme honey

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/17/2011

I don't typically have dry nor chapped hands, but my hands and nails do need some loving now and again especially if I've spent the day gardening or cleaning, The Thyme Honey Hand Cream is perfect for my needs. It is a rather light cream, with a pleasant but strong sweet honey scent to it that reminds me of saffron buns (Swedish speciality). A little really goes a long way, to just …Read more

Cleansers - KORRES Natural Products - 3-in-1 Milk Proteins Emulsion

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/17/2011

This is a milky cleanser, with a very mild yoghurt type of scent, that spreads easily on your skin and massages in to leave it clean and fresh...

Sadly, it also burnt my skin after a few uses, so I had to discontinue use. It might be that my skin is used to oil cleansing, and so reacts badly to anything not 100% natural or just some ingredient in this that does not agree with my …

Fragrances - KORRES Natural Products - Vanilla Freesia Lychee

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/17/2011

As the previous reviewer noted, this perfume is very, very, very close to Flowerbomb at a fraction of the cost. Though, this is a little bit more subdued and less sweet than Flowerbomb, almost with a hint of something leatherish or smokish in the bottom (guess it is the freesia).

I can't really smell the lychee at all, except for in the very initial, fresh and fruity burst that …
