Hair Styling Tools - ghd - Gold Classic Styler

After thinking about a GHD for 5 years I finally bought the Pink Orchid styler last week. I have to say I'm thoroughly disappointed with this one. It's not nearly as hot as the GHD IV (ceramic) which I've borrowed from friends before. Because it's not as hot, I don't get sleek straight hair and I can't do wavy hair either. Very very unhappy as I paid 3 times the …Read more

I own two of these. One is called 'show me the money' (a dark jade with shimmer) and the other one is a light minty green also with shimmer. I have to say i'm impressed! The formula is really thick and with the dark jade one i only needed one coat! I really like that the shimmer in them is really subtle, just enough to give a sheen. And with a top coat the color should easily last …Read more

A very disappointing product. The brush is way to thin and my nails start chipping in ~5 days. I much prefer the "top to bottom" one from Orly. Would not repurchase.

My can't-live-without hand cream in winter. It is very greasy indeed but I need this to retain the moisture in my skin. Other hand creams just seem to...evaporate as soon as I apply them. It has a very subtle scent so I sometimes mix it with others (eg Victoria Secret lotions) according to mood :). It reminds me of the Cetaphil hand cream that I used to own except this is way cheaper. The …Read more

I give my hands a lot of abuse (working in lab, wearing gloves all day, cooking, drumming, gardening etc) so needless to say cuticles are my enemy. This product my sister swears by it and sort of made me buy it when we went shopping. Personally I don't think it's as magical as my sister claims. It absorbs slowly, it feels greasy, and the effect is not very noticeable unless you use it …Read more

The concept of the product is great: foundation+sunscreen+blemish control+wrinkle control+whitening in one tube! I couldn't not try it!
However, I'd like to point out a few down points:
(1) The color selection is poor (3 shades, and not all are readily available)
(2) The scent is too strong (not suitable for sensitive skin)
(3) It kinda broke me out.. and I …

This has become a must have item for me now. I use it every day and the same tube has lasted me six months so far. It dries fast and the brush is very easy to use. I have both "Carbon black" and the plain "black", they're very comparable except the former is shinier I think. I would love to try the Lacome Artliner that everyone raves about but don't want to spend …Read more

My new favorite fragrance! I'm not usually a woody person but now I can't live without it.This is nothing like what I own - a very unique fragrance (I'm over florals!).. so warm and rich and sweet. One or two spritz lasts me all day. I also love the lotion in the gift pack unfortunately it's hard to find now.
