Lip Gloss - Bonne Bell - Lip Smackers -- Cherry Coca Cola

5.0

Nov/22/2017

If I want real hydration for my lips I'll turn to DHC Lip Cream, but for a tinted chapstick on a lazy day, I'll make an exception and take my Cherry Cola Lipsmacker out with me. To me it smells (and looks!) like summer - a very subtle reddish tint that'll make you look like you've bitten your lip, it's innocent and sweet and perfect for the dog days when you don't …Read more

Moisturizers - DHC - EGF Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/22/2017

Now, before we start, a little disclaimer: I am not the target audience for this cream, not by a mile - I'm 25 with combination skin and just a few fine lines, and while my skin tends to be tired and dehydrated, it doesn't need quite the level of moisture that the EGF cream offers. But I had a couple of samples of this cream and thought I'd try it out anyway.

So, for …

Treatments (Eye) - DHC - Revitalizing Moisture Strips

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/22/2017

These undereye strips are the Idols of eye treatments - they're fun, they shine bright and burn fast.

These feel nice and cool and refreshing - I like to apply them in the morning - and have a very visible, very fast-acting effect: they make your eyes look less puffy and tired, minimise dark circles and generally make you look like you've had a nice long night of sleep. They …

Treatments (Eye) - DHC - Concentrated Eye Cream

4.0

Nov/22/2017

The reviews on this product baffle me, because it sounds like people are reviewing completely different products! I can only talk about my own experience of it but it seems to be radically opposed to many others.

I had samples of this cream that I started using up before moving on to the full-size pot. Each sample would last me about a week, as really only a tiny amount of product is …

Masks - Unlisted Brand - Blue Lagoon Iceland — Silica Mud Mask

Nov/20/2017

Oh my god, I've been using this product for a while, it was a gift and I had no idea it was so expensive - I only just found out when sitting down to write this review!!

The formula of this product is truly amazing. My skin had been a bit hopeless for a while, it was dehydrated but oily and I was breaking out, so I took this back out of the cupboard and it's been helping …

Cleansers - DHC - Olive Soap

Oct/31/2017

This is one of the gazillion DHC samples I'm currently using up and reviewing. I've used it every day for the past 2 weeks and I'm very impressed!

I normally use DHC's Pore Face Wash, which smells great but leaves my skin feeling a little tight - this does nothing of the sort. It foams up very well and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh without any of the drying …

Gels/ Soaps - Glossier - Body Hero Daily Oil Wash

5.0

Oct/31/2017

I LOVE THIS!!!

I tried it at the Glossier showroom in NY and bought it instantly - I honestly don't think I've ever been so clearly impressed with a soap-type product before.

The product comes out like oil but foams up when you lather it on. It makes you feel so, so squeaky clean and refreshed after a shower - but it's not drying at all. In fact, my skin is …

Shampoo - Klorane - Strengthening Shampoo with Quinine & Vitamin B

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/31/2017

Tried this as a sample size, out of which I got two uses. My hair had recently been shedding quite a bit, so I took this on holiday with me and decided to give it a try.

Pros: It definitely reduced hair loss, and, I feel, strengthened my roots. My hair feels a little thicker and much less brittle. So, it does what it says on the tin. It also feels like it fed my curls a little, they …

Fragrance - PENHALIGON'S - Endymion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/31/2017

Sweet and spicy and utterly delicious.

I honestly think this scent is unisex, despite being marketed as a Men's fragrance - but then again I wear a lot of men's perfumes.

Unlike many of Penhaligon's scents, this one lasts quite a long time and will take you on an interesting, evolving olfactory journey.
It starts off very peppery, with a bit of a burnt …

Celestolite is a luxe skincare brand whose main point is that all their products contain meteorite powder.

Weirdly, I can barely find any reviews online so I went instore and requested some samples. This is what the product description says:

"Experience the ultimate in anti-aging brilliance with Venus Vitamin C Serum from Celestolite. This silky effective serum is …
