Lotions/ Creams - CHANEL - La Creme Main Texture Riche

25 days ago

I have suffered with very dry hands and contact dermatitis for years. My skin is very sensitive to soaps and detergents, and with frequent hand washing my hands wind up being dry, cracked, red, itchy... just horrible. I have tried virtually everything from vitamin and other supplements to calendula balm to products recommended by pharmacists. As I live in France, I have used pretty much every …Read more

Fragrances - Hermès - L'Ambre des Merveilles EDP

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/22/2016

I don't know how I missed this one in the past, but I guess I was a little confused by all the Merveilles offerings by Hermes whenever I looked at the line-up. I've had the original EDT, the EDP and the extrait in the past... never loved any of them. The EDT I found weirdly cloying... the EDP was better and always garnered compliments, but it felt a little masculine to me. The …Read more

Fragrances - Burberry - My Burberry

This is not my usual sort of fragrance, not that I have a usual, but I'm not a fan of fruity florals, which is what I thought this was, except it isn't. While rummaging through a ltitle collection of samples I came across this and spritzed on a tissue. At first I thought - oh no way! - the opening was so sweet and fruity - but then it changed, and within ten minutes I had a spritz on my …Read more

Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche Lipstick

Jun/24/2016

I purchased a tube of this because I was looking to match a specific colour and happened to find it in 'deep raspberry'. I am happy with the colour and the texture and how it wears... it's impressive really, for the price. However, the smell is awful... not least because the last time I wore L'Oreal lipstick and smelled this smell I was a teenager, so it really brings back …Read more

I love the formula for this which works well for my dry/sensitive skin. This is really as matte as I can go, surprised to see it's dewy on other reviewers, who are probably younger and/or less dry. I love that it's sheer and easy to blend, it feels weightless and looks so natural, but I don't have an exact colour match which annoys me. I'm NW15 but the N1 is too pink and the …Read more

Fragrances - Caron Paris - Parfum Sacre

Jun/24/2016

I have been trying to find reviews online of the newest Carons in the rectangular bottles, apparently released in 2013. The newest reviews here are from 2014, but it's not clear that references to reformulated stock refer to these bottles, and I think they refer to the previous formula in the peppercorn style bottles. So I hope this helps others looking for new info.

I have a …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Miu Miu Eau de Parfum

Apr/21/2016

I bought a bottle of this a few months ago and enjoy looking at it. It's a fabulous bottle. Everyone says so, and then they criticise the fragrance as being an uninspired light white floral. I'm also far more enamoured with the bottle than the fragrance, but not for the same reason. I liked it's bright lily of the valley, and I would have been happy if it stayed that way, to …Read more

Toners - Lancôme - Tonique Douceur

Apr/21/2016

Toner. Do we need it? I go back and forth on the answer to this. I've tried a lot over the years. I've often gone a long time without them. Many, even those claiming to be natural, alcohol-free or for sensitive skin, have irritated my sensitive skin. I first received this one as a sample, and I was wary of its fragrance, but I can never resist trying things despite the sometimes …Read more

Apr/21/2016

I switched to this about six weeks ago after having received some samples of this and the Tonique Douceur when I purchased the Renergie cream. I have since bought a big bottle of each. I have never believed in using all the same products from a line, and I still don't, so this is just a happy coincidence for Lancome that I like them all. I also don't believe you need to spend a lot …Read more

Apr/21/2016

Not so long ago we moved from England to the south of France and I decided I wanted a moisturiser with sunscreen in it. My mother left a bunch of little Lancome pots here after her visit last summer... she is an ardent long-time user of their products and she does have amazing skin for her 70+ years. I started dipping into her pots because they all had SPF written on them. I was amazed that this …Read more
