These disagreed with my skin, it tried them nightly for a week, it wasn't a pleasent feel, greasy but dry that comes with silicones, i came out in 6 or 7 angry red surface spots around my eyes and on my cheeks. I do think it improved the skin on my neck in the week but still a no go for me.

I struggle to make this flattering on my skin, it has very little coverage and leaves my face looking oily, I thought it would make a good summer tinted moisturiser but it's no good when I have to powder on top! The best TM I've found is TheBalm Balm Shelter.

Lotions/ Creams - DECLÉOR - Moisturizing Body Milk

My go to body lotion the last 11 years, It's expensive so I have tried cheaper alternatives but they can't compete. Decleor just has that winning combination of being very moisturising, very light and easy to rub in and just the most addictive, subtle scent. I think they've tweeked the formula recently, Decleor....leave it alone. Please.
PS I much prefer the …

Lipstick - Urban Decay - Vice Lipstick - Backtalk (Comfort Matte)

Like the previous reviewer I gravitate to these mauvy, blue toned rosey pinks, it's a flattering, creamy matte colour, and it stays put, a little drying but it doesn't come off very easily. Just be careful with the case, it came apart when I twisted it down, there wasn't much glue holding mine together!

Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Lip color - Red

A true, clear red that's unforgiving on my cadaver toned complexion. I got this colour as it was recommended by Sally Hughes as a colour to suit any skin tone, believe me it doesn't. I was aiming at sophisticated but got trashy instead. Don't dismiss it though, I think the evidence from the other reviews suggests it looks lovely on more warm toned skin.

I've used this for over 2 years and after a disastrous month with a different cleanser now appreciate just how gentle, hard working and thorough this cleanser is. Expensive but really can't be replaced.

Love it, just want to add to the chorus of praise for this foundation, I use shade N1 and it's perfect for my colouring, not too yellow which can look odd when you're pale with blue undertones. It's all about the finish and the finished look is just beautifully natural.
The best and only compliment i've ever had on my skin was while wearing this foundation, that puts it …

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

Nov/19/2015

Thought this would be kind and gentle on my sensitive skin and I fancied a change of cleanser and it's relatively inexpensive, unfortunately like other reviewers it left a thin greasy, plasticky film on my palms and face, I had to use micellar water to remove this cleanser and remains of make up.
For the first time in years my skin is inflamed and spotty.
I've used …

Fragrances - CHANEL - No.19 Poudre

Created with Sketch.

Apr/17/2014

I loved and wore the original No 19 as a signature scent in the early 90's, i wouldn't wear it these days only because nobody wears fragrance on a everyday basis within my social circle, wearing No 19 would be a bit of a faux pas.
Enter No 19 Poudre, this is my HG everyday fragrance, gentle, exquisite, calming, leaves me feeling confident and pulled together, I ignored it for years …
