Fragrances - Victoria's Secret - Pure Daydream Fragrance Mist

Nice fresh, fruity scent. Not exactly sophisticated but pleasant and lovely for casual daytime wear. Great for wearing to work if you're like me and need a spray of fragrance before you leave the house but don't want to be the first thing people smell when they come through the office door!

Surprisingly long lasting - fades a bit but still detectable on my skin for about 3-4 …

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Mia

This is pretty much the harshest exfoliator I've ever seen and wouldn't recommend for delicate/sensitive skin. I'm baffled by how anyone uses one of these multiple times a week as i found it really harsh.

One use of this with the sensitive brush head left me looking and feeling like I've got sunburn across my cheeks and forehead. I followed the instructions and was …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Lipsy Original Perfume

Another perfume that doesn't work with my chemistry. Its beautiful when you apply it - a blast of fresh oranges and ginger with flowery undertones. Once it dries is when the problems appear. On me it smells of jasmine and rose and orange blossom, aka like cheap, boring perfume.

If it works for you you're in luck though - it lasts for hours. I was literally still smelling it …

Love! L'air d temps is wonderful. Beautifully balanced,soft and spicy and subtle but lasts all day. I know this has a long history so people seem to associate it with older relatives but I really don't think of this as an older woman's perfume I think its classy and wearable for anyone.
I took one star off for the packaging just because I think the white travel ones are …

I put one spray of my sample on my wrist in the morning, it was frosty so I thought the cold would stop it being too strong. 20 mins later it was still all I could smell and probably all anyone in a 20foot radius of me could smell too. I had to drive with the windows down at the request of my passenger. Strong stuff! It seemed to create a huge cloud of fragrance for over an hour, then settle …Read more

Loose Powders - Bourjois - Java Rice Smoothing & Setting Powder

Jan/02/2015

Not what I was expecting - bought it expecting a nice, light, transparent powder to set my makeup for the day. I didn't realise it was a nice, light, transparent, SPARKLY powder with very little setting power. Although it says poudre de riz you have to look closely to notice the more important part - illuminatrice universelle. Its a highlighter in a jar. A beautiful, vintage-style jar with …Read more

Eye Shadow - Bourjois - Smoky Eyes Trio - Gris Lilac 12

Very low pigmentation - I have really fair skin and honestly for the amount you need to apply to get the colours to show this won't last very long . Although the dark and middle colours look great in the packet they don't blend particularly well and look different on the skin to how you'd expect. It looks like the trio are complementary shades but beware the dark shade is a fairly …Read more

Hair Treatments - Neutrogena - T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo - Original Formula

Great stuff. Have tried head and shoulders and it made it worse, switched to this and scalp was perfect after one wash. Alternating between this and normal shampoo for maintenance.

It does smell medicinal, kind of like vosene shampoo. It doesn't linger in your hair once its dried though.

I love e45.

Really good moisturiser, sorted out my skin from the unholy effects of central heating, psoriasis and handwashing. Super impressed with this overall - pretty neutral smell, works really well and cheap. I got nearly 2 weeks from a small tube!

Liquid - Bourjois - 123 Perfect Foundation

Dec/25/2014

This foundation really doesn't suit me. For some reason the colours in the bottles seem about 2 shades darker than the equivalent in their other foundations and have a different undertone. It looks too dark yet too ashy on me so test before you buy. Review based on trying it anyway and washing it off before leaving the house so I don't scare people.

The formula itself is …
