Lotions/ Creams - Vaseline - Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion - Fragrance Free

5.0

8 months ago

I don't have particularly dry skin, but my lower legs can look a bit scaly in summer. This is fragrance free, sinks in quickly and completely with no tacky residue. I can find it easily, the pump always works, and it's a reasonable price. I would love to purchase a lotion with anti aging ingredients, but I've tried many over the years, and they either had added fragrance, or took …Read more

Fragrances - Etat Libre D'Orange - Rien Eau de Parfum

2.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

Incredibly overpriced for what it is. On me this smells almost exactly like Ciara by Revlon,without the raspberry note. I was given a generous decant of this. I tried it four times. Eventually I tried Rien on one wrist and Ciara on the other. They were at least 85% the same.

Basic dry sandalwood incense and leather with a little bit of amber. Very good longevity but fairly poor …

Fragrances - Nautica - Aqua Rush Eau de Toilette

4.0

10 months ago

Nautica make a range of inexpensive aquatic type eau de toilettes, mainly for men. I found a 100ml bottle of this at my local chemist for $19 AU.

Aqua Rush is a clean, aquatic, mens fragrance which manages to steer clear of many of the usual notes that irritate me in aquatic fragrances. No calone, no melon, and minimal citrus, which is fabulous, because most fragrances heavy on the …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Al Rehab Jasmin Perfume Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I've tried a lot of arabian perfume oils in the last few years, and mainly found them to be misses. I've probably tried around 10 Al Rehabs and disliked them all. Recently I made a purchase on Ebay and got this one as a freebie. It's the only hit so far.

Jasmin is a fruity, slightly green, light jasmine without any indolic overtones. It also doesn't have the …

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Chant d'aromes

2.0

10 months ago

This is a green floral for people who normally find green florals too strident. Unlike many green perfumes, it doesn't contain either galbanum or hyacinth and this makes it easier to wear. I love the smell of both galbanum and hyacinth, but they often give me a slight headache.

On me Chant D'Aromes smells soft, fresh, green, woody and slightly dry. I can mainly smell the …

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Aldi Ombra Daily Defence SPF 50 Tinted Sunscreen

This is a chemical based sunscreen for the face. It comes in one shade only. I have light olive skin and it works for me as long as I don't put too much on. A 60ml tube costs $2.69 in Australia which makes it fabulous value for money.

Pros - It sinks in quickly. It isn't oily. It doesn't block pores. It contains spf 50. It's fragrance free. The 60 ml tube is a good …

I was given a decent sized decant from a friend and have worn this five times now.

I am a chypre lover. This is very clean, polite and office friendly. It's a modern chypre without any of the bite of the older ones. Very disappointing, but at the same I understand why it is so clean and polite.

On my skin it starts off with bright citrus. This is followed by a slightly …

Neck/Decollete Cream - Palmer's - Coconut Oil Anti-Oxidant FIRMING LOTION

5.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

This is a firming body lotion, but I am putting it in as a neck and decollete cream because that is how I use it. I don't use it on my face because coconut oil tends to give me pimples.

This is a light lotion. It sinks in quickly, leaves no greasy residue and smells like coconut sunscreen. While I prefer products with no added fragrance, this smells better than most Palmers …

Fragrances - Nina Ricci - L'Extase Eau de Parfum

The best way to describe this is as an oriental gourmand/chypre.

This was a Christmas gift. I don't really like gourmands and if I had looked at the notes on paper I would never have purchased it. According to Fragrantica, the notes are:

Caramel, rose, raspberry, vanilla, white flowers, benzoin, amber, pink pepper, cedar, musk, patchouli, peach, pear …

Cleansers - Palmer's - Coconut Oil Formula with Vitamin E Facial Cleansing Balm

1.0
Created with Sketch.

12 months ago

This one is a definite miss for me.

It's a solid balm that liquifies instantly on contact with skin, and is supposed to be water rinsible. It does look as if it is water rinsible as it starts to wash off when you mix it with water. Unfortunately, even after trying to wipe it off with a face cloth, it left a greasy residue. I had to double cleanse very thoroughly. I have other …
