Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Moisture SPF 15

2.0

Oct/26/2017

I needed a new foundation so headed to the MAC counter and the sales assistant suggested this. I loved the sound of it because it was lightweight but buildable and had added SPF. Luckily instead of buying on the spot, she gave me a very generous sample and I'm so glad because I don't like it at all. I was matched to two different shades - NW15 and NW13. I went with the NW13 because …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Deciem - The Ordinary High Spreadability Fluid Primer

Jul/11/2017

The Ordinary offers two primers - this one and the High Adherence Silicone Primer. I feel like the two do very different jobs and the right one for you will depend on what you want a primer to do and your skin type. This primer is a smoothing primer in my opinion, it smoothes any rough areas to give your skin a more even skin texture - perfect for dry skin. I don't use this all over my face …Read more

Liquid - Charlotte Tilbury - Light Wonder Foundation

A great foundation but only for the right skin type. My skin is typically dry but now after stopping hormonal contraceptives my skin is more combination-dry. It is dry around the perimeter of my face but my T-zone is more oily than before. That being said, this still works well for my skin but I do not think it would last well on oily skin. I agree with Charlotte that it smoothes, hydrates and …Read more

Shampoo - OGX - O2 Shampoo

I love this shampoo but like all haircare products you will only like this if it is right for your hair type. This shampoo is perfect for people with fine hair that need very little moisturisation and that is easily weighed down. Although this is a "hydrating" shampoo, I didn't find it particularly hydrating at all. If you have fine, dry hair you would be better alternating a …Read more

Conditioner - Redken - Extreme Conditioner [REFORMULATED]

Dec/12/2016

I love the Redken Extreme Shampoo so I was expecting to love this conditioner but I absolutely hate it. My hair is fine but gets knotted easily so I need a lightweight conditioner to help detangle my hair, that's it. This conditioner feels very lightweight but unfortunately did not to help me detangle my hair. It's not moisturizing or nourishing in the slightest and I had to use …Read more

Shampoo - Redken - Extreme Shampoo (new formula)

Dec/12/2016

If you have truly damaged hair that doesn't need significant moisturisation, you will love this shampoo. I was worried as it was an opaque formula that it might leave my hair greasy, but on the contrary, it left it clean and bouncy. My hair feels more resilient and styles better since using this shampoo. I feel it would work better for finer hair rather than thicker hair as it is not …Read more

Sunscreen - Hawaiian Tropic - Silk Hydration FACE oil-free sunscreen SPF30

Sep/22/2016

This SPF is supposed to be moisturizing for 12 hours but it doesn't even feel moisturizing when I first put it on my skin, never mind after 8 hours. It is apparently oil free and non-greasy but it did feel quite greasy and heavy on my skin and makeup didn't last as long as it usually does when I use this. The claim that it's a lightweight feel is also laughable, this stuff is so …Read more

First Impression - I couldn't get a match in this foundation so had to buy two different shades, Ivory and Light Porcelain. To get my perfect shade I mix 2 parts of Light Porcelain to 1 of Ivory. Normally I wouldn't buy a foundation that wasn't a perfect match but I bought these while they were on offer for 2 for £10. As for the application, I was really happy when I first applied …Read more

Aug/26/2016

I bought this online thanks to the good reviews. The colour on the front of the bottle looked suitable pale for my fair skin but I was horrified when I received my order. The shade of this stuff is so dark. Even when I'm on holiday in a hot country for two weeks I'm not this colour! I had to buy white foundation to mix in with this so it's an expensive mistake! As for the claims of …Read more
