I have Here You Go / All Aflush and fell in love with it instantly. While a lot of Quiktrik Sticks contain one designated highlight shade, I don’t find All Aflush too shimmery and therefore use both shades as my blush. The formula is similar to Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge which is one of my favourites. It goes on smoothly without dragging, is easy to blend out and leaves a subtle sheen without that …Read more

I have this in Beverly Hills Blush. This little gem has slowly but surely worked its way to the very top of my extensive cream blush collection, even pushing firm favourites like Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge and Stila Convertible Colour to the side. Its just so darn easy! The universally flattering, subdued pink shade with super fine peach shimmer (zero glitter, just sheen) is neutral enough to go with …Read more

I’ve been coming back to this for 20 years now! I first got it in my teens when I would spend hours at The Body Shop sniffing all the bottles. I 100% get it for the gorgeous smell - the formula itself is pretty basic to me, but sometimes that’s all I want. It neither strips my fine, long hair nor does it weigh it down. No bells and whistles, just a shampoo that gets your hair clean and smells …Read more

INSTANT HOLY GRAIL. By far the most natural looking bronzer for my pale complexion with strong yellow undertones. This really does make me look like I have a tan as opposed to wearing make-up. It blends out so seamlessly and wears beautifully without settling into the fine laugh lines around my eyes. I apply it with a fluffy kabuki - swish and done. While it swatches darker and redder than …Read more

Apr/22/2018

My skin responds well to a multitude of acids (salicylic, glycolic...- anything to keep those pores from clogging up) and azelaic acid is no exception. I don't use Skinoren everyday (I am 33 with mild adult acne, mostly clogged pores in my t-zone) but keep it on hand in case I get a really bad break-out that requires the big guns. This also is one of the very few products that (combined with …Read more

This is a winner! Amazing coverage, goes on super smoothly and almost creamy, meaning that it does not look dry or cakey but gives you a lovely velvety finish that feels super lightweight. I also find that it has great lasting power and does not accentuate fine lines or pores. It really is everything I look for in a powder - it looks absolutely beautiful, wears well and does not break me out …Read more

Unfortunately, I had an allergic reaction to this - this was the second time a mineral sunscreen gave me a rash so I'm assuming they're just not for me, even though they are generally considered safer for those with sensitive skin.
I managed to apply this twice before it made my skin feel hot to the touch and bumpy (exactly the same reaction I had to the other mineral sunscreen) …

Shampoo - LUSH - Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar

Feb/01/2018

Bought this for travel and while I do love the portability and the gorgeous smell, it's not a solid shampoo I would rush out and repurchase, The honey content means this metls VERY quickly in hot temperatures (in my case the Mexican heat). It lathers well but does contain SLS which may be a con for some; I personally found it made my fine hair fall flat and get greasy again quite fast. It …Read more

Feb/01/2018

Not a winner for me - didn't control odor in a reliable way (I have tried other aluminum-free deodorants that do) and also gave me a hard lump in my armpit after serveral weeks.
I also found the formula terrible to apply - super gritty and hard, it felt like I was trying to rub wet sand into my pits. I tried to remedy the situation by leaving the stick out on my radiator to melt the top …

This product has been flying under the radar - why is nobody talking about this? Supposedly limited edition, you can still find this on the Estée Lauder website as well as various other retailers‘ sites. This is cream blush heaven for dry skinned gals! It is the butteriest blush I own - would definitely not recommend this for anyone with oily skin or those in hot climates but if your dry cheeks …Read more
