Treatments (Face) - Nip + Fab - Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads

Apr/20/2018

I have highly reactive facial skin and chest skin and tried these with some trepidation. I bought the little travel size first from Superdrug for £1.50 to test it out. It has five pads and within two I was confident I'd be buying these again. As it turns out, they have performed marvelously on my skin (generally oily, dehydrated, prone to patches of eczema when over-stressed or upset by …Read more

Jun/20/2016

I used the type with the pink lid. have oily, dehydrated skin with well-managed rosacea and a tendancy to atopic eczema when aggravated. This product cleaned my make-up off very well. Unfortunately, it also aggravated my skin to the point it was much redder, very itchy and generally tight and uncomfortable. After a few uses, I developed patches of mild eczema. I only bought the small 150ml bottle …Read more

Fragrances - LUSH - Karma

Sep/27/2015

Some note or combination of notes in this induce nausea in me. I tried a sample and felt unwell, queasy and unable to eat. Later, I had a middle-aged office manager who used to douse herself in the stuff and I spent multiple afternoons feeling sick because of it. The ferocious, weird stink would invade an entire open-plan floor. She thought it was wonderful though. Clearly we were smelling …Read more

Cleansers - Simple - Pure Soap for Sensitve Skin

Jul/08/2014

Perfect body soap for me - completely unscented and plain soap that doesn't cause irritation and cleans well without drying too much. I prefer a more fatted, shea-based soap for my face, but use Simple soap every day in the shower for everywhere else on my body and also to wash hands. Rebought hundreds of times by now and at a pound for a two-pack from my local shop it cannot be beat for …Read more

Fragrances - Pacifica - Tuscan Blood Orange

Dec/28/2012

I usually abhor fruity fragrances, as most smell horribly childish and generally 'off' from the actual fruit they're trying to impersonate to me. This though is absolutely true to the fruit - gorgeous, juicy blood orange. It's utterly delicious and one of the only fruit fragrances I've encountered that haven't wanted to eject from a window (along with its wearer) …Read more

Liquid - GOSH - X-ceptional wear liquid foundation

2.0

Jun/21/2012

This foundation definitely aged me. Strange, sticky texture on application, sinks in fine lines and shows up any dry patches. I think it made me look 5 years older and strangely tired, where a decent foundation can take 5 years off me. The packaging is good, the colour match was OK and the price is excellent, but the performance is really bad for someone with my skin type (older, rosacea, SD dry …Read more

The last time I bought and liked products from The Body Shop was the 1980s. Back then there was an understanding that many customers wanted something different to the usual useless scented rubbish hawked elsewhere - they sold many reasonably-priced products that weren't packed with scents and irritants - I remember well the scent bar that allowed you to fragrance bass products as you wished …Read more

Hair Color - Schwarzkopf - Palette

I used #500 (chocolate brown) on my medium/dark brown hair to enrich the colour and cover some bits of grey.

Pros:
Overall, I can't fault Palette for colouring. The colour turned out exactly as it said on the box, covered all my grey hairs and didn't dry my hair out at all. The formula is thick and doesn't drip at all so application is easy and it causes less …

Nov/27/2011

I used shade 323 - Dark Chocolate - on my shoulder-length mid-dark brown hair. After reading some of the reviews here I was a little worried about the result, but everything went as planned and I ended up with nice glossy dark brown hair and all my grey (white) hairs covered nicely. I followed the instructions precisely and, left the colour on just under 20 minutes. My hair isn't …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Aveeno - Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/24/2011

I picked this up at Boots on a whim last winter after finding my skin was reacting oddly to my usual E45 cream. I have dry, itch-prone, eczema-prone skin that needs twice daily moisturizing and is sensitive to fragrance. Most lotions are either perfumed and therefore totally unsuitable for me, just nowhere near moisturizing enough or contain something that aggravates my skin. I didn't hold …Read more
