I'm on about my 3rd bottle of this. I use it morning and night and it replaces my night time moisturiser also I put it round my eyes. Skin looks plumper, healthier, brighter. It's doesn't deal with redness like vit c though just generally brighter. No spots, no reaction and I have very reactive skin. I think it has really helped with eye area moisturisation and dry lines have …Read more

Brows - CLINIQUE - Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse

Jan/13/2016

I like this because I can be as ham fisted as possible and still not screw it up. It's not for those who want power brows. It's more suited to those that want it tidying up with a bit of colour.

The brush is tiny and that's the big selling point, everyone else's is bigger and it can deposit too much.

The down and this is also a biggie, 2ml. No I'm …

It's ok. It smells nice and it cleans. It's expensive and I don't like the pot. ESPA ProOptimal cleanser, smells very similar, comes in a tube, it's similar in that's it's an oily balm but a bit runnier and it also contains waxy jojoba beads that exfoliate and melt on your face and also pumpkin enzymes which eat up dead skin. You can also leave it on as a mask to …Read more

I've just received a 100ml sample of this, before it arrived I thought due to the Purete it would be for blemish prone skins but no, it's for sensitive, Woo hoo :-)

Then booooooo..... :-(

Second ingredient is mineral oil. Every time I've broken out with large red spots it's been mineral oil. I had nasty cheek spots about a year ago after Garnier changed …

If you're pale i.e 15 on the mac scale this is perfect, pale pinky/peach with a very slight shimmer. You'd have to try very hard to put too much on, looks very natural and it lasts all day too. Packaging is very breakable but it's cheap. Can't fault it.

Wouldn't recommend it for those darker than pale, I don't think it would show up well.

A quick review to point out a couple of things.

1. it's now 350ml for £8 and boots often have buy one get one half price or 2 for 3.
2. You only need a pea sized amount - it will last for ages
3. The scrubby bits shouldn't put you off they're not harsh
4. Biggest point - I usually use cream cleansers and some of them cause dryness but this doesn't …

Fragrances - Caudalie - The Des Vignes Eau de Fraiche

Nov/15/2014

This is available this year as a Christmas box set so I thought I'd do a review.

The notes sound amazing, orange blossom and jasmine tea. Heart: ginger, grapes and neroli. Base: white musk and blonde trees.

Firstly it's lighter than an Eau de Toilette and it really is, there's no sillage and 30mins later I can't smell it at all even after liberal …

I'm gobsmacked. I love this. A Yves Rocher fragrance. The bottle is beautiful, glass simple with white gradient. I bought based on reviews, I wasn't convinced about the listed notes but I had a voucher code and they were giving away another free bottle of perfume and this came in a box with 15ml purse spray so I went for it.
It lasts for ages 5+ hours on me but it's not eye …

I'm onto my 4th of this beauty.

1. It doesn't make me dependent on it, I don't use it for a few days I don't end up with really dry lips.
2. I find it really plumping, gives my lips a boost
3. No scent, hate scented lip balsm/lipsticks.
4. SPF very handy
5. Works under lipsticks great for it you want to make the lipstick more sheer.
6. Goes …
