I have been using this for two weeks so this is a first impressions review. This is quite a thick cream that feels comforting on the skin. It doesn't fully absorb into my skin and leaves a cushiony film on my skin which may be a plus point for those who's skin is very reactive. My skin is normal dehydrated at the moment so it just doesn't need that. Also for that reason I …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Lipstick - Ravishing

I love the colour as an everyday peachy pink. The creamsheen formula doesnt sit nicely on my lips however.

However I still haven't managed to find another peach that I like as much so I still wear it quite frequently.

I bought into the hype and again I'm disappointed! This is my first (and last) paint pot so I'm not sure how similar all the colours are in texture.

My current favourite shower gel. I really nice spicy citrus without being christmassy. Lathers well and doesn't leave me with blackheads on shoulders or dry shins (I'm prone to both!).

This is really great. I love balm/oil cleansers and have tried all the major ones. Recently I picked this up in boots for €14 because I couldn't yet afford the Emma Hardie cleansing balm and was surprised by how gentle and effective it was. It also comes with an included muslin cloth which i think is a nice touch although i still prefer to use a flannel. I'm on to my second tube of this …Read more

I use this only on chapped skin especially after having a cold. It usually clears it up almost overnight.
However I have tried using it on my lips and it really hasnt improved the condition of the skin.

Edit: This is also really great on razor burn or irritated skin. It works really well on small dry skin patches. A good product to have on hand.
