Cleansers - Sukin - Cream Cleanser

Love it! My HG cream cleanser
My routine: I wet the lush baby face cleanser and apply to my eye area only (since I wear so much eyemakeup lol), then I use one pump of this stuff over my whole face. Then I remove/rinse with a warm wet washcloth, and tone and moisturise.

I really feel that this product does what it says it says it does. It cleans. It doesn't dry my combo skin …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Telescopic Explosion

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2010

I bought this mascara so I could have more control with my application, and to get those inner/outer lashes covered. For this purpose it is successful - however, since the brush is so little, it takes me ages to do my mascara, so it definitley won't be my everyday go to mascara.

The formula is pretty average, nothing amazing to comment on there. However it does get clumpy. I think …

Mascara - Living Nature - Thickening Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/07/2010

I did quite like this stuff. I'm trying to switch my makeup over to more natural versions. I live in NZ so living nature seemed to be a good place to start. And this did an ok job as an everyday mascara.
I thought the formula was quite good, but I'm not in love with the brush. It's one of the old school ones, and I think I'm used to the new large barrel rubber ones, so …

Tinted Moisturizer - LUSH - Colour Supplement

Jul/04/2010

For me, this stuff is just good. I wanted something like a tinted moisturiser, which I could apply my MMU over. I just wanted another layer for a wee bit more coverage, and this met my needs perfectly. I mixed some with my standard moisturiser, and it applied evenly.
I also like the fact that it is "natural". I know it has parabens, but can't really find anything more pure …

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Almond Buttercream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/04/2010

I really loved this butter cream! I wasn't expecting a lather and it didn't give me one, which is fine by me (for me I loove bubbles in the bath, but think they are unneccesary for just showering).

I loved the scent, which didn't smell that almondy to me, just slightly "yummy", for lack of a better word. I didn't find the scent to be long lasting, but I …

Bath Treatments - LUSH - The Comforter Bubble Bar

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2010

I adore this bubble bar! I am in love with the scent, and it makes your bath nice and pink (not that you can see it under all the bubbles). The first time I tried it, I put half of it in, which gave lots of bubbles and was fine untill we put the jets on, which absolutely made the bath overflow with bubbles! The next time I used 1/4, and the same thing happened. So I would say if you have jets …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Alkmaar Soap

5.0

Jun/04/2010

I used to use alkmaar, but they don't stock it anymore where I live :s. Really disappointing since it was my and my sister's favourite soap! I can't really describe what it smells like exactly, but has a soft, delicious, delicate scent (and I usually love strong scents!), and a lightly milky lather.

Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Apr/13/2010

Love it! I never really thought about using this as skincare, but I gave it a shot as a makeup remover and it did the trick! Everyone raves about that one, but I have also been using it to shave my legs, and it is amazing! I just smooth a teaspoon on each leg, shave then clean off when I'm done. It makes them super slippery, smooth and moisturised. Packaging is pretty standard, a pump would …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Pore Refining Daily Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/12/2010

I really really liked this stuff and was plesantly supprised. I usually go for more gentle/natural cleansers, but gave this a go as I wanted an alternative exfoliator, rather than scrubbing my face with little bits of scratchy stuff (looking at you st ives). I found this didn't seem to change the size of my pores, but it did make my skin a lot smoother, and it tended to make the bit …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/12/2010

TBO, I found this stuff kind of average. I have oily/combo skin, and found that this stuff got most of my makeup off (had to wash a second time to get the rest off, but probably my own fault for not using makeup remover lol). I really liked the "clean/tingly" feeling it gave, but then I think that's all it did... It cleaned my face, and it did not do any sort of deep cleaning for …Read more
