I have fairly 'normal' skin with very few issues and am writing this review as I was surprised at how badly I reacted to this product. A couple of hours after applying it for the first time, I broke out in a rash of very fine, reddish bumps over my cheeks in a very classical contact dermatitis type of reaction. This is very unusual for me, and being the only product that I had changed …Read more

Mascara - NARS Cosmetics - Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/23/2015

I generally get on well with Nars products, but this is hands down one of the worst mascaras I have ever used. I have long but fine eyelashes and it makes them a sticky, clumpy mess and smudges and transfers onto my eyelids once it has dried. I really can't believe how bad it is, especially for a high end product. I definitely wouldn't recommend or repurchase and will probably just …Read more

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift & Sculpting Morning Cleansing Balm

Apr/27/2015

This is a holy grail product for me, I switched after using another very famous balm cleanser for years but find this works better as I'm getting a bit older and my skin is no longer the oil slick it used to be. This removes all traces of make up and leaves my skin clean but not stripped of moisture, I'm on my second tub now and don't think I'll be switching back any time …Read more

Conditioner - Bumble and bumble - thickening conditioner

I used this in combination with the matching shampoo, which I also reviewed, and while the shampoo was dreadful this was at least adequate. It left my baby fine hair soft and easy to comb through, smelled nice and I love the Bumble and Bumble packaging. However, definitely not worth the money in my opinion so I would not repurchase or recommend to others.

Shampoo - Bumble and bumble - Thickening Shampoo

Apr/27/2015

I have baby fine virgin hair that lacks volume and gets oily quite quickly, I thought that I would be exactly the sort of person that this product should work well for. I used the shampoo in combination with the matching conditioner and from the very first wash it made my hair awful! It was very soft and easy to comb through but it looked instantly greasy, limp and lifeless, basically everything …Read more

I researched this product extensively before purchasing and reading so many excellent reviews eventually encouraged me to go for it. I'm adding my own review because despite really wanting this to work my experience was incredibly disappointing.

Just to give a little bit of background, I have combination skin which is prone to the occasional breakout (usually just a couple of …

Shampoo - Phyto - Phytovolume shampoo

May/19/2013

I have had good experiences with other Phyto products but I was a bit disappointed with this one. I have fine hair that tends to get quite limp and is very oily by the end of the day. On the plus side this shampoo did give noticeable volume without the static associated with a lot of volumising shampoos, also after using it I can often miss a day with washing my hair when I usually need to do it …Read more

May/18/2013

I really can't tell if this has helped my skin or not, but after getting through almost an entire tube I would say probably not... it hasn't made anything worse but I don't think that's really enough for me! My skin is certainly a bit softer after using this mask but I can see no difference in pore size or the number of blocked pores I get, I will try something else when this …Read more

May/17/2013

I really wanted to love this foundation but I just can't seem to get it to work for me. The bottle looks great and the fragrance is nice, that's about all I could find that I liked about it. I have combination skin that breaks out occasionally and found that this was actually quite drying, also I have the same issue as a previous reviewer in that whilst the foundation gives medium …Read more

I think this is a really good basic moisturiser and at £32 a pot in the UK I don't find it too expensive (maybe it's marked up in other countries?). I find this product sinks in really quickly, doesn't block my pores and provides a good base for make-up. I think this would be good for oilier skins, as for my combination skin I think it's better for summer only, the winter …Read more
