Polishes - essence - Shine Last & Go Gel Polish - Sweet As Candy

5.0

The quality of this line seems to vary with the shade, I hated the goopy white one in 04, but love the nude pink one in 05.

First off, this says gel, it's regular polish though, no lamp needed. The shade 05 does have an almost gel-like finish though, and amazing lasting power.

It's a very flattering semi-opaque nude shade. The brush and formula are great. It may …

Nails - Unlisted Brand - Depend Nail polish

5.0

This is a very affordable Swedish brand that generally has great polishes. My favourite ones are the minis pictured above, at a ridiculous two and something euro per bottle. I adore the white shade 031. It is opaque, applies very easily with zero streaks, and is touch-dry in minutes.

The most amazing thing about these is staying power. I wore this when I had two weeks off work, and …

Treatments - Sally Hansen - Nail Growth Miracle

3.0

OK, this probably deserves a higher rating - because I suspect the effects depend mostly on one's nail type. I had the one with the brush, not the dropper, they look very similar.

My nails are naturally strong, healthy, and I have no problem growing them. But at work I wash and disinfect constantly and handle rough abrasive materials, so I end up with a lot of small chips and tears …

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Luxury Pud Bath Bomb

3.0

The 2019 version has black currant, bergamot and cypress oils. I get a lot of sweet vanilla /tonka/benzoin, which I suppose is the perfume ingredient. The scent is nice, it's very sweet in a candy or bubblegum way, which isn't my thing, but I'm a lot more tolerant of such scenrlts in the winter season.

They have extra large ones now, filled with agar crystals, but I went …

Fragrances - Versace - Crystal Noir Eau de Toilette

5.0

27 days ago

This was my summer fragrance. I loved it, and so did everyone else.

It's very versatile. The name is fitting, because the scent has many facets, like a faceted gem. But it is not noir. It starts out like a clean coconut, continues to gorgeous exotic flowers, switches to distinctly green notes, then soapy. These facets appear and reappear many times throughout the day, you're …

Last year I told you Lemony Flutter was the only thing that worked on my terribly work-ruined hands. It does work on my terribly ruined hands. But this stuff! Oh sweet merciful blue baby Krishna, this literally makes me want to cry with gratitude and relief!

If you have especially bad hands, a well-meaning SA may advise LF over this one because it is thicker. Don't let the lighter …

Moisturizers - L'Oreal Paris - Age Specialist 55+ Anti-Wrinkle Restoring Cream

I think this is called wrinkle expert in some countries. I'm not over 55, but I've read soaring reviews of women my age using the day version of it with much success.

I bought it long ago before realizing just how badly I react to dimethicone. This feels and acts like plain silicone. It gave me breakouts, so I tried using it on my neck hoping the skin there isn't as …

Fragrances - GIVENCHY - Dahlia Noir Eau de Parfum

It took me very long to recognize this as a rose scent. I generally have difficulty picking up rose as rose in perfumes, but this one was more like a dusty powdery scent with discernible pepper. Pretty close to the old lipstick smell that some reviews mention.

It wasn't bad, and I don't mind powdery scents, it's just that this felt like an abandoned, cluttered, dusty and …

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Honey I Washed the Kids Soap

4.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

This isn't a soap I'm crazy about, but it objectively has great things going for it.

It is possibly the least drying of all lush soaps. Melts and applies easily, except for the honeycomb bit on the top. The honeycomb bit is very rough, to the point I can't run this soap along the skin because it scratches quite hard. The abrasive bit is the tiny chicken wire webbing …

Wow, I wish I'd tried this sooner!
Why didn't I? Errr, yeah, the hoo-ha reviews.

I don't know how people smell BV in this. I tried and tried to pick it up. Nope.

What I get is what the pyramid lists, no more, no less. Starts off as the inside of a delicious fig, so slightly sweet for the first few minutes. It's mixed with the salty scent of caviar (NOT …
