Tinted Moisturizer - Lancôme - Hydra Zen BB Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/28/2014

I bought this to replace my Lancôme Aqua Fusion tinted moisturiser which is no longer available. The two products are actually quite different. Aqua Fusion was much thicker and creamier and didn't need moisturiser underneath. It had a higher SPF rating but also melted pretty quickly in the hot summer. Hydra Zen BB cream is a little lighter with a similar light coverage. It leaves a satiny …Read more

Fragrances - Roger & Gallet - Fleur d'Osmanthus

Jan/24/2014

Another Osmanthus fragrance beautifully done! This one by R&G is a bottle of sunshine with plenty of citrus notes blended with the floral Osmanthus, It's very fresh and uplifting, which is perfect in the spring and summer, but it doesn't last long unless layered with the shower gel and body lotion. The Osmanthus note isn't very distinct as it's so well blended with the …Read more

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Bagatelle 161

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2014

Bagatelle is a gorgeous colour in the tube, but it isn't very pigmented compared to some other glossimers and doesn't show up well on my medium-pigmented mauve tinged lips. It applies quite thick and slightly sticky, but after a few minutes it melts into lips and creates a soft and smooth texture that has a natural yet slightly shimmery finish. You cannot see the beautiful medium pink …Read more

Lip Treatments - Biotherm - Beurre de Levres

4.0

Jan/24/2014

Beautifully moisturising lipbalm that applies like butter (not as thick as Nuxe or TBS lip butters) but melts into a soft silky texture and absorbs nicely into lips. It's lightly scented and is a great base for lipglosses or lipsticks. Price isn't bad either at £9/13ml, and the simple packaging is convenient (though it would have nice for a little more elegance from Biotherm).

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - After-Sun Rescue Balm with Aloe

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2014

I've been using this as a moisturiser when my skin doesn't need too much hydration, particularly in the summer. Although it's marketed as an after-sun it's actually fantastic for sensitive skin at any time as it is very soothing. This feels like a balm when you spread it on your skin - it's slightly tacky and takes a few minutes to sink, after which there's no …Read more

Powder - Estée Lauder - Cyber White Ex Extra Brightening Powder Makeup SPF20/PA+

Bought the latest version of this compact in Hong Kong in 2013 and it was very good for the humid weather there. It's a moisturising powder with a satiny finish and prevents the oilies for most of the day (minimal blotting), and has a lovely even finish with medium coverage which stays true to the pan. The powder comes in a cute baby blue compact which is refillable, but you don't get …Read more

Bought then bought then bought this for my DD - this lotion is light and silky and sinks right into baby's skin leaving her soft and adorably scented. At £22 for 300ml the price isn't too bad as you get a lot of product, and the pump bottle is also very convenient to use when you have a little one - HG baby product!

Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Spa Wisdom Polynesia Monoi Moisture Balm

5.0

Jan/21/2014

This moisture balm smells identical to the TBS' Monoi Miracle Oil - absolutely mesmerising! This soft balm melts and absorbs quickly into skin and leaves it so so so soft and smooth - much more moisturising than TBS' body butters and the Monoi Miracle Oil. The beautiful scent lingers for a long time and one jar lasts longer than a bottle of the oil. I use this on my DD too and it smells …Read more

Fragrances - Fresh - Hesperides

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/21/2014

Gorgeous uplifting grapefruit scent which is perfect for hot summers. I love this as a pick-me-up when it's hot and humid, and spray several times a day as it disappears quickly in humid weather, so I go through a bottle very quickly. Fresh isn't widely available in the UK (only 1 store) or in Hong Kong, so my beloved Fresh fragrances are not easy to replace. That being said I …Read more

Masks - Estée Lauder - Resilience Lift Extra-Firming Revitalizing Mask

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/21/2014

I've taken PB's advice and used this as a moisturiser in the evenings - it sinks in really well and doesn't leave an oily residue even on my oily/acne-prone and sensitive skin. It's rather expensive but you do get more product in the tube than you would in a jar of moisturiser, and the beneficial ingredients are same as other products in the Resilience line. The only drawback …Read more
