Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

Apr/05/2010

I finally tried this even though Philosophy packaging annoys me with those silly messages. I like the scent - fresh slightly lemony. It foams lightly and is easy to rinse, It doesn't sting my eyes, it removes light make up (though I haven't tried removing mascara).
Overall it doesn't take anything from my skin and I can use it as a one-step if I'm in hurry, it …

Lipstick - Laura Mercier - Lip Colour- Bare Lips

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/05/2010

This is a lovely natural looking pinky beige - the colour of healthy flushed lips, It's sheer but pigmented. If you've ever tried Chanel glossimer in Praline this is like the lipstick version, though less glossy, less sticky and longer lasting. I wasn't sure about the almond smell at first but it disappears quickly. If you want an easy natural but polished look this product is …Read more

My hair is fine, straight and around shoulder length, the slightest hint of grease or product overload is very noticable. This stuff is great, it gives a very natural level of hold but doesn't weigh my hair down and I can blow dry serious volume into the layers, it doesn't dull shine either.I only need 2-3 pumps, I found more than this made my hair a bit stiff. It pumps out as a foam …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Philosophy - Vanilla Birthday Cake 3-in-1

I don't usually go for food smells but loved the smell in the bottle so I bought this on a whim. Unfortunately the smell is strongest in the bottle and practically disappeared the minute it was added to a running bath. I closed the door as the bath ran expecting a lovely steamy scent to greet me when I opened the door, but... nothing!
As this is just an average gel/bubble bath the scent …

Moisturizers - Boots - Botanics Oil free moisturiser

Mar/08/2010

I bought this after reading a review elsewhere that said it gave great results for someone who was older but still prone to hormonal breakouts. I've been using it about 2 weeks now and my skin is clear, calm and soft. It is a clear gel which, after it is smoothed on, seems to disappear into a matt finish. It doesn't 'sit' on top of the skin but feels like it has been absorbed …Read more

Cleansers - REN Clean Skincare - Calendula and arctic blackcurrant seed cleansing milk- sensitive

3.0

Feb/06/2010

It's described as a milk on the packaging but is a thin cream. A good consistency for massaging over your face. I bought this because my face was suffering the effects of dry air and my normal products were aggravating it. It calmed my irritated skin so it does have soothing qualities however normally my skin isn't particularly sensitive.
I wash this off with a microfibre cloth and …

Treatments - MAVALA - Cuticle Remover

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/16/2010

This removed my cuticles but after using it about 3 times over a few weeks my cuticles were in terrible shape, very hard, dry and snagging, flaking etc. I'm usually a fan of Mavala products but I got such poor results I think maybe I was just very sensitive to the chemicals in this. I've gone back to my old remover and my cuticles are now back to normal.

Primer/ Corrector - Laura Mercier - Foundation Primer

5.0

This smooths my skin and appears to minimise pores, it also fixes my foundation like glue. I've used it under BB skin foundation with no balling. I like the fresh look it leaves on the skin so sometimes just use this and concealer where needed with no foundation.

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Paris By Night Eye Shadow

3.0

This is a flat matte plum/purple with a slight hint of brown. It is exactly the shade of black eye bruises which unfortunately is how it looks on me. This is probably better suited to those who use many shades on their eyes with careful blending and other colours it would probably be fine, I just smudge e/s around my lash line hence the bruised look.

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Eye Colour in Pewter

5.0

I got this in a swap and am so pleased with it. It is grey enough to do a smokey eye but the hint of green takes the coldness off. My eyes are that weird bright geen/blue but can also look cold and grey with certain colours. This really enhances the green in them.
It's slightly pearly (?not flat not frosted) is easy to blend and nicely pigmented. Love it!
