Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly

1.0

2 months ago

I got a tester size of this from Ulta as a GWP and I'm so glad I did because it's horrible! I have no idea who this is aimed at as it's not moisturising in any way. I have combination skin - oilier in my t-zone - and this actually made my skin feel dry. I tried using it in a variety of ways too - on damp skin after cleansing; on dry skin after cleansing; before moisturiser; on …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Boots - Lift (L;ft) Skin Boosting Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I don't think Boots' L;ft (Lift) range gets enough credit. I've had a number of products from the range and they've all been pretty good. This serum is no exception. Sure, it's nothing trailblazing but as serum's go, it's certainly one of the nicer ones I've used. It had a fairly thin consistency but it applied nicely and didn't leave my skin …Read more

Cleansers - Up & Up - Gentle Skin Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

As the name suggests this is a gentle skin cleanser that's easily comparable to the more expensive Cetephil version. I have super sensitive skin but this never irritated it, left it feeling dry and/or tight, or uncomfortable. I used this as my morning cleanser and it always left my skin feeling refreshed and well cleansed. I would definitely repurchase this and would recommend it to …Read more

Lip Treatments - Soap & Glory - Sexy Motherpucker Lip Gloss

1.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I feel the need to put a disclaimer at the beginning of this review - I don't like Soap & Glory. I've yet to find a single one of their products I like or enjoy using. That doesn't stop me from trying their products though, on the off-chance that one day I might just find the one that wins me over. Sadly, this lip gloss isn't it. I used this a total of once and that …Read more

Lips - REVLON - Kiss Cushion Lip Tint

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I loved the colour of this (I had No. 220 - Pink IRL) but I didn't like how it felt once applied. It was so slippery and uncomfortable on my lips, it made them feel like I'd been eating really greasy food. It had absolutely no staying power either - I found it had completely disappeared within about 20 minutes of applying it. This costs £7.99 in the UK and personally, I don't …Read more

Body Scrubs - Dove - Exfoliating Body Scrub - Kiwi Seeds & Cool Aloe Scent

3.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

As scrubs go, this was OK but I prefer something a little harsher. Dove pitch this as having a whipped texture which I would agree with. However, they also state that it gently removes dull, dry skin and deeply nourishes the skin, neither of which I would agree with. I don't think it's grainy enough to effectively remove dry skin and although it does have a creamy texture, I still …Read more

Concealers - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I like this enough that I've repurchased it BUT there are a few things about it which continue to bug me:

1. The consistency is very thick - like stage makeup - meaning it's incredibly easy to overdo application. I've found the easiest way to counter this is to apply the smallest amount first, blend that out, then apply a little more if needed. I've also found it …

Skincare - Face - Physicians Formula - 24-Karat Gold Collagen Serum

3.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I purchased this after seeing some rave reviews for it online. I've been trying to include a serum in my daily skincare routine for the last few years but have yet to find one that I really like. Based on the reviews I'd seen I was hoping this might fit the bill. And although it was pleasant enough to use every day, I can't say there was anything about it that really stood out …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Boots - No7 Radiant Results Revitalising Eye Make-Up Remover

3.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

This is a dual action eye make-up remover and as such, it works just fine. However, there are a couple of things that stop me from scoring it higher. First off, you don't get a huge amount of product for your money - a mere 100ml for £8.50 - meaning for me, this didn't last very long (about 3 weeks). Secondly, the packaging is really bulky, especially the lid. At first glance I …Read more

Concealers - Stila - Perfecting Concealer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Too thick for me. It applied quite nicely but it quickly settled into the fine lines around my eyes that I definitely don't want to draw attention to. I felt like the packaging had a cheap look and feel to it too. I expect more from Stila as a high-end brand - this looked more like something you'd get in a drugstore. I've used cheaper concealers that have done a better job than …Read more
