At first I was disappointed with this product, I'd hoped it would be a more dewy version of ELDW without the spf which I find causes flashback on photos. It isn't similar at all, the liquid is very thick and when I tried to apply it using my fingers (my usual method) it was very dry in consistency, smeared, clung to dry patches, sank into fine lines and generally looked awful. Applying …Read more

Absolutely incredible stuff! I was actually on the verge of purchasing new hair straighteners as I thought they weren't performing very well but this product has changed all that.
I have naturally wavy hair cut in a bob which if it were long would look lovely but as it's a bob it needs straightening at the moment. No matter how much I straightened my hair would never stay smooth …

Do not buy this unless you have skin drier than the sahara desert!
On my quest to find the perfect tinted moisturser I visited the laura mercier counter and parted with £33 for the pleasure of making my face look like I had smeared it with chip fat.
I have skin that can get oily quickly but if I use products designed for oily skin it gets really dry and tight. I also suffer breakouts of …

I really like this foundation, Iv tried loads over the years but keep coming back to this one. My skin is around nc20, gets oily really easily but if I use products designed for oily skin it gets super dry and tight, plus Im blessed with bouts of cystic acne around my jaw line at times! I cant find any direct correlation between this and my breakouts, I think they are more hormonal than product …Read more

I like to wear foundation if I am going out (mac studio fix) but for a more natural look I like a tinted moisturiser. My job is quite masculine so I dont like to look heavily made up but at the same time I need my make up to last 12 hour shifts! My skin is around nc20 and weird: it gets oily at the slightest thing but if I use products designed for oily skin its gets super dry and tight, and I am …Read more

I have always been faithful to bourjois volume clubbing waterproof mascara for something like the last 10 years, I swap and change with other make up products but never mascara. However I had heard such good reviews about this mascara and it seemed to give the mega volume look I like so I decided to give it a go when I saw it on promotion.
It certainly does what it says on the tin, giving …

Hair Treatments - Redken - Extreme Anti-Snap Anti-Breakage Leave-In Treatment

Feb/01/2014

I had made the fatal mistake of dying my naturally brunette hair full head bleach blonde, which combined with heat styling caused it to snap off in various places :-( This resulted in me having to dye it back to brown and have approx 2 inches cut off. I was recommended this product by a hairdresser to try and prevent further snapping whilst my the damaged hair slowly grew out.
I have been …
