Moisturizers - NIVEA - Daily Essentials Light Moisturising Day Cream SPF30+

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2013

This is a lovely light daily moisturiser with a high SPF (30+). It has a light pleasant smell and sinks in quickly, without leaving the greasy sheen that sunscreen often has. I use this on my face and neck every day and use Nivea Creme (the made-in-Germany version) at night, and my skin looks and feels great. I feel happy knowing that I'm doing something positive towards preventing sun …Read more

Cleansers - SHISEIDO - Benefiance Creamy Cleansing Foam

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/21/2013

I would never have spent this much money on a cleanser, but I was given a small sample tube and love it. A tiny amount (and I mean TINY) foams up beautifully into a thick creamy lather, and will quickly and easily remove my light makeup and the grime of the day. It rinses off easily and my skin feels fresh and clean afterwards.

I said that I've buy this product again but …

Styling Products - Agadir - Argan Oil Spray Treatment

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/15/2013

I liked the smell of this spray and the fine mist that made it easy to use without weighing my hair down. It did leave my hair feeling soft, I think, but it didn't blow me away. And after a few months something weird happened to the half bottle that was left, and it turned into something like plastic beads inside. It rattled when I shook it, and the sprayer stopped working. I had to throw …Read more

Moisturizers - Olay - Total Effects Moisturizer Plus Cooling Hydration

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/13/2012

I used Total Effects for years but got seduced by the exciting new scents and promises of other brands, and my skin seems to have suffered for it. Recently I spotted this Total Effects Moisturizer Plus Cooling Hydration on sale at a good price and decided to give it a go.
The consistency of this moisturiser is more like a lotion than a cream -- it seems thinner than the original Total …

Skincare - Body - Yardley London - Lily of the Valley perfumed talc

5.0

This dusting powder is beautiful - smells like lily of the valley, leaves your skin scented and smooth, and isn't overly white once it's rubbed on. I love the vintage-style shaker container, too, which fits beautifully on the narrow ledge in our bathroom. Price is higher than baby powder but less than I'd be willing to pay for such a lovely product.

This dusting powder is beautiful - smells like roses, leaves your skin scented and smooth, and isn't overly white once it's rubbed on. I love the vintage-style shaker container, too, which fits beautifully on the narrow ledge in our bathroom. Price is higher than baby powder but less than I'd be willing to pay for such a lovely product.

Polishes - China Glaze - Nail Lacquer-Awakening

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/31/2011

Awakening is a beautiful warm pink/gold polish with a slight frost but no glitter. It goes on easily and does not show brush strokes too badly (often a problem with frosts). It took me three coats to reach opacity but each coat dried very quickly so that wasn't a problem. I love how this looks dark pink in some lights and almost bronze in others. It's very pretty and subtle without …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Innocence

5.0

Jul/30/2011

A really pretty sheer pink that goes on smoothly without streaks. No sparkle, no glitter, no shimmer, no gimmicks. Simple sheer pink.

Two coats over white tips are perfect for a French manicure on my pink-toned fair skin, and it looks extremely natural at that level. A third coat brings up a more obvious pink which is less natural looking but just as pretty in a different way. I can …

Lipstick - Smashbox - Deep Red

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/21/2011

This is just how you'd imagine from the name, a true deep red lipstick. It looks amazing with my fair pink-based skin and makes my teeth look really white. It's very vampy/glam and not for shrinking violets but if you want your lips to look amazing then go for it!
