Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Indeed Laboratories - Hydraluron

Sep/25/2013

I only found out relatively recently that my skin was dehydrated (lacking water), not dry (lacking oil) - I hadn't realised there was a difference! I decided to try Hydraluron following a recommendation on a beauty blog, and I'm very glad that I did.

Typically, my skin feels dry, flaky and prone to fine lines. I also get extremely dark circles under my eyes. Since I started …

Conditioner - Paul Mitchell - Super Strong Daily Conditioner

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/05/2013

I bought a large 1 litre bottle of this on offer at TK Maxx, having loved other Paul Mitchell products in the past. This one, I'm not loving. My hair seems to tangle more quickly than before, all the time. It also does little to tame my frizz. As to whether it has strengthened my hair or not...maybe? But if I'm constantly struggling to brush tangles out, I'm undoing any good that …Read more

Moisturizers - Lacura - Hydra Complete Serum

5.0

Jun/05/2013

I first purchased this when I ran out of Vichy Aqualia serum and couldn't afford more until the next payday. I'm now on my 2nd bottle of this. I have dehydrated skin that is prone to both flakiness and breakouts - in the same area, at the same time. This product sinks in quickly and rehydrates my skin, and I am less flaky and dry. I also haven't had any breakouts while using it …Read more

Hair Treatments - Dr. Hauschka - Neem Hair Lotion

This is a good product, however the packaging is so awful that it completely stops me from using the product. It's a glass bottle with little hole, through which you have no control whatsoever over how much product is dispensed, or where it goes. For an expensive item, this is not acceptable in my book.

Lotions/ Creams - MooGoo - Natural Full Cream Moisturizer

5.0

Oct/15/2011

I love this stuff. I use it all over on my psoriasis-covered, itchy sensitive skin, and almost straight away my skin feels softer and smoother. It is light in consistency, but very moisturising - it seems to last all day, whereas other body butters etc usually leave my skin dry again after a couple of hours. While it's not 'curing' my psoriasis, it is making it a hell of a lot …Read more

Shampoo - MooGoo - Milk Shampoo

5.0

Mar/07/2011

I have suffered from scalp psoriasis for the past 20 years, so this appealed to me because it is SLS free (uses a more gentle foaming agent, apparently) and because I know what pretty much everything on the ingredients list is. I'm using it in conjunction with the Scalp Cream from the same company. Over the years, I have tried many things for my psoriasis - steroids and other prescriptions …Read more

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Beeswax Lip Balm

I love this lip balm - most other lip balms just feel like a coating of vaseline sitting on top of my lips, which lasts about 10 minutes, and then goes away. This one feels more like it actually sinks in and keeps working. I get the little tins, and must have one in every coat pocket I have! I've been using it for years, find it well worth the price, and it lasts ages :-)

Body Scrubs - Yes To - Carrots C the Body Carrot Rich Moisturizing Body Scrub

1.0

Dec/28/2010

I've liked other Yes to Carrots products, but this scrub just wasn't for me. It is a very gentle scrub, and may suit those with very sensitive skin better. The scrub particles are small, few and far between, and seemed to make little impact - I had to use a lot, on a loofah glove, in order to feel any effect. It also leaves a residue on the skin - it feels like it doesn't rinse …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Yes To - Carrots C Through the Dry Spell Deliciously Rich Body Butter

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/28/2010

This is a great all-round body moisturiser - I often use it for my hands too. It is rich and creamy, but absorbs fine. It smells 'clean' and quite sweet, although I find that the scent doesn't linger on the skin, which is something I don't like in a body moisturiser. Didn't irritate my psoriasis, but didn't see any benefit from it either, but that is a big ask for a …Read more

Shampoo - LUSH - The Blonde

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/28/2010

I was recommended this to use to take a break now and then from Soak'n'Float, which I use for my scalp psoriasis, and I have to say I'm really underwhelmed. It's so gentle, it may as well be baby shampoo - I have normal hair, not particularly greasy or dry, but this just did not make my hair feel clean, no matter how much I rinsed. I can't speak for it's effect on …Read more
