I tried several shades on my hand in Boots, then had to try about four varieties of cleanser to cleanse my hand - seemed a good sign!
I bought a shade similar to ones I usually wear, but because it stays on so well its a bit too dark and dramatic for day wear, but great for evenings - will definitely be back for a lighter shade.
I put it on, let it dry while I did my eye makeup, and it …

Nail Tools - Essie - Leave no trace glitter nail polish remover

5.0

Jan/01/2018

i bought this very cheaply in a sale at TK Maxx - so having used it I'll rush back to stock up while they still have some!
I paid £3.99 for a small bottle - looking on line it's anything from £15 to £25.

I used it to remove CND shellac rather than glitter varnish - but it worked brilliantly, and so much easier than anything else I've tried.over the years. I …

Mascara - REVLON - Ultimate All-In-One Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/04/2017

I bought this without reading about it - on sale in TK Maxx boxed up with Revlon eve shadow and a khol pencil for around 30% less than I'd normally pay for Mascara alone - I generally like Revlon, so a no-brainer.
I hadn't expected the small brush, but I find it easy to use, and a couple of coats give a fairly full, long lashed effect without looking spidery.
The only time it …

Treatments - OPI - Nail Envy Samoan Sand

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/04/2017

I've long been a fan of Nail Envy, but hadn't needed to buy any in ages, so when I discovered coloured versions, I was keen to try them out.
Samoan Sand is a perfect nude colour for me - I prefer it to the clear, and my nails have quite contrasted white tips, so looks a little like a french manicure.
Easy to apply, dries quickly.
I assume that you're supposed to use …

Polishes - Maybelline New York - Color Show Nail Lacquer - All Colors

I bought 549 Midnight Taupe because it was the closest match I could find when I chipped one shellac nail and the others were all fine. Served it purpose.
I like to have a break between shellac applications, so gave it a go on all my nails, but was seriously underwhelmed - very thin, hard to get a uniform coat, so I left it in the drawer for a while.
Last week a professional manicurist …

Cleansers - LUSH - Ultra Bland Facial Cleanser

Jan/03/2017

I really like this - I've been using it for about a week, my skin got a bit dry after a cold and Christmas - not sure which was responsible.
Very rich, but my skin is recovering - I wash it of with a linen cloth and warm water.
Reminds me of Eve Lom Morning time cleanser which I also like - the packaging isn't as good, but being around half the price more than makes up for …

Cleansers - Simple - Cleansing Micellar Water

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/22/2016

I'd read good reviews of this, but I find it more astringent than Nivea's micellar water, and doesn't leave my skin feeling as fresh. I will probably finish using it, but will go back to the Nivea one

Styling Products - AVEDA - Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight

Didn't really work well for me.
I had Brazilian blow dries for about five years, and my hair was in great condition, then I had one almost a year ago that went wrong, and my hair, naturally a bit frizzy since it went grey, went into meltdown.

This helped a bit - but so did many other products that were a lot cheaper.
OK when I blow dried, but not just as a leave in …

Cleansers - NIVEA - Daily Essentials Sensitive 3-in-1 Micellar Cleansing Water

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/11/2016

this is the first micellar water that I've used, so I can't compare it to other brands, but I really like it - very refreshing to use.
I've been using it for about a month, morning and night, and my skin is really good.
Fast and easy to use - I use one cotton pad in the morning, and two in the evening when it has to cope with the combination of make up and London …

Tinted Moisturizer - NIVEA - Daily Essentials Tinted Moisturising Day Cream

Jun/11/2016

I purchased this on a whim to complete a 'buy two get on free' deal

I've had tinted moisturiser before & not been impressed, but this is great.
It's ideal for days when you don't want to wear full make up - I think trying to layer it to mimic foundation (and being disappointed with the result) is kind of missing the point.
It evens out colour …
