Lotions/ Creams - Cetaphil - PRO Restoraderm Gentle Body Moisturizer

This product is absolutely lifechanging!

I'd been having problems with very dry skin/exzema/sensitivity/redness on my face for ages and had such a hard time with it - I looked awful without makeup and any make up I did use just couldn't cover the dry patches.
Also, because of the sensitivity, I kept getting rashes on my cheek whenever my skin was aggravated (so …

Cleansers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Oil Cleansing Method (OCM)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2013

Apologies if this ends up being a bit of a rant but Oil Cleansing has been an absolute wonder for my skin BUT can be tricky to get right so I want to be as thorough for you guys as possible.

So I have always had super dry skin with eczema and about two years ago, my skin unexpectedly took a turn for the worse and I also developed acne (at about the mild-medium level) for a few years …

Lotions/ Creams - Philosophy - Hands of Hope Hand and Cuticle Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2013

I am a bit of a hand cream addict and Hands of Hope by Philosophy has to be one of my favourites.

It has a formula that isn't too light but definitely isn't particularly creamy. As a result, it absorbs super quickly - so while there is a bit of greasiness for the first few minutes (as is the way with any hand cream), it is completely gone really quickly.
Despite …

Lip Treatments - Maybelline New York - Baby Lips Lip Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/26/2013

To be perfectly honest, the selling point of this product is mainly in its fantastic marketing. Let's be honest, they're essentially the lip-smackers we all had as kids, just marketed well enough to sell to adults.
To begin with, the concept (and cuteness) of the 'baby lips' idea is ingenious. In addition to that, the colours and packaging are great. I was sold from the …

Foundations - Smashbox - Camera Ready CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Sep/23/2013

I've been wanting to jump on the bb/cc bandwagon for a while now but wanted to put some care into what I chose. I did a fair amount of sussing and from what I could tell, a lot of bbs and ccs never seemed to have particularly high ratings by many people - regardless of the brand. Nevertheless, I thought I'd take the plunge and make a choice.

For those of you who are doing …

Eyeliner - RIMMEL - Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

Sep/16/2013

I've been using liquid eyeliner for years (and was quite happy with it) but on a whim, I decided to try out the Rimmel gel eyeliner after seeing it on Tanya Burr's youtube channel so many times.
I bought it and was itching to try it out but had a few makeup free days and couldn't justify putting it on when I was just staying home all day. Needless to day, I was super excited …

Toners - Jurlique - Rosewater Balancing Mist

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/11/2013

While this product is listed as a 'toner' I definitely wouldn't call it a toner in the ordinary 'use after cleansing' sense of the word. Rather, I bought it to use as a hydrating pick-me-up during the day when my skin gets a bit dry from being in a building that runs airconditioning/heating all day.

To be frank, it doesn't really seem to do much at all …

Toners - CLARINS - Toning Lotion with Camomile

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2013

Like a lot of other reviewers, I've never been too big on toner - many of them severely dried out my already dry skin, caused my sensitive skin to react or just did nothing and ended up being a big waste of money.

I got a pretty decently sized sample of this product in a Clarins gift bag and due to my skepticism, it sat on my bathroom shelf for a few months before I worked up the …

Fragrances - Jo Malone - English Pear and Freesia

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/30/2013

I saved for ages to buy this perfume and it was so so worth it.

In terms of the packaging, Jo Malone is super thorough - the bottle is gorgeous and simplistic and they do the whole nine with boxes and bags and bows.

When it comes to scent, this perfume is heavenly - and by far the nicest I've ever bought. I was really torn between this one and the orange blossom one …

Lip Treatments - Philosophy - Kiss Me Tonight

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/30/2013

This lip balm has amazingly cute packaging and a really lovely colour. It's got a very faint pinkish tint so it makes your lips look really cute.

On the downside though, I found it to be a tad sticky (so annoying on windy days when your hair gets stuck to your lips). In addition to that, while it WAS moisturising, it wasn't quite as good as products like lucas' paw paw …
