Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Pep-Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I have oily skin which is prone to hormonal acne and severe dehydration (leading to the production of more oil on t-zone.) I use this after I have removed my makeup well using a cleansing oil. I find it very scrubby and I work it quite hard into areas that I need the most exfoliation (nose, chin and forehead), avoiding my eye area. I had been in a phase of chemical exfoliants but this has helped …Read more

Moisturizers - Deciem - The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

I really love this oil! I have oily skin which can be very de-hydrated (often making my oil production worse!). I control my oily skin with simple but regimental skincare routine and mattifying makeup (it's taken me 31 yrs to be happy with current skincare and makeup). I use this most nights after The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid and I mix it with The Ordinary Moisturising Factors. I only use …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - ORIGINS - High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-enriched eye cream

Mar/28/2013

At first I really liked this product as it felt very moisturising on my undereyes. It was greasy but by morning it had sunk in and my undereyes were hydrated and smooth. That's until I realised that my eyes were becoming VERY irritated. I never applied the eye cream on my lids but I worked out that whilst sleeping, product would migrate on to them. My lids were puffy, bright red, itchy and …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eyeshadow - Blanc Type

This shade is a little bit more ivory than my skintone (NC15). I like the to use it as a matte highlighter on my brow bone because if I wear shimmer there I end up looking like a drag queen. I tend not to wear it on the lid as it falls a little flat as its too close to my skintone. It has a nice texture but for me Brule has has more pigment as my brush picks up more eyeshadow from Brule. They are …Read more

Okay I can see that this might look good on some people....for example Lollipo26 from yt who I first heard about this lippie from looks lovely with it on. However, it looks truly atrocious on me!! I'm NC15 (neutral toned really), with brown hair and eyes and pigmented lips. To me it's the pigmented lips part of my colouring that makes this lipstick look awful....my theory is that people …Read more

Bath Treatments - LUSH - You've Been Mangoed bath melt

Mar/05/2010

Out of all the scents at Lush this is up there with my favourites!! It's a light, mouth-watering, orangey, limey, lemony scent. It doesn't linger so doesn't interfere with lotion or perfume. I have very dry (painfully dry a lot of the time) and this helps to moisturise and make me feel so relaxed (baths make me relaxed even though the scent is described as …Read more

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Big Blue Bath Bomb

Mar/05/2010

I'm so not a fan of this. To me this smells heavily perfumed.....well it is heavily perfumed because it's one of the first ingredients on the list. Tbh that really puts me off...first of all perfume should not be in direct contact with lady bits as its not great for femine health and second it's not that great for skin. It irritates my nasal passages because it's that strong …Read more

Conditioner - Aussie - Hair Insurance Leave In Conditioner

Mar/01/2010

I absolutely love this product! For reference I have fine hair (individual hair shafts are fine) but a ton of it (honestly LOADS of hair). I have oily roots and normal to dry ends. Sometimes I can get away with using just this and no proper conditioner when I'm in a real rush. I love this because it softens and smooths my hair down to a very managable state. I find that it doesn't weigh …Read more

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Magic Mushroom bubble bar

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2010

This is my favourite Lush Bubble Bar ever!!! It smells like vanilla ice cream topped with strawberry sauce. As the first reviewer said it is a mix of the permanent Vanillary scent and the Yummy Yummy Yummy shower gel, it has a naturally sweet smell that is not saccharine or false (Snow Fairy I'm taking about you!). To me most of the bubble bars smell good but I still get a wiff of …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Happy Hippy

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/10/2010

I think this is okay. I recieved this in my free gift bag in the christmas sale. It is a pleasant grapefruit scent but for me it is not strong enough. I can only really smell it if I sniff really close to the product. I wanted a bold fresh citrus hit but a bit too mellow for me. But I guess for a hippy mellow would be just the trick. Wouldn't repurchase as I like to be bowled over by a …Read more
