My teeth were quite yellowish even though I don't smoke or drink coffee or wine (only recently started drinking herbal tees). I have used various whitening toothpastes and kits which haven't made much of a difference, so I was a bit skeptical about using a toothpaste made from product all natural ingredients but luckily it turned out to be the best toothpaste I've ever used!

Jun/12/2008

After reading so many great reviews of this product, I had pretty high expectations, which this treatment balm unfortunately didn't live up to. Although it helps with detangling and making my hair feel a little softer, it wasn't anything I'd rave about. You can get much cheaper conditioners that do a better job in that department for 1/4 of the price like pantene classic care …Read more

I bought this shower gel based on its great reviews un MUA and am so glad I did! This is my new HG shower gel - it smells soooo yummy, lathers well, cleanses the skin without stripping it dry (but also without leaving a filmy residue on the skin) and best of all it's dirt cheap!!
You can use it with a washcloth, sponge, loofah or your bare hands - in any case it does the trick. I know …

While I have to agree with some reviewers that there are a lot of drawbacks to this product - it's very thick and greasy, takes ages to absorb and the smell might be too sickeningly sweet for some - its moisturising ability is fantastic and for me, that's the most important quality in a body cream.

For those who don't like the smell, it doesn't linger on your skin …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Fantastic Lash [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/08/2007

I was quite disappointed with this mascara. It pretty much just darkens the lashes and it's really hard to tell that I'm wearing mascara when I have used this (even when I have used it with Model Cos heated lash curler). It makes no noticeable difference to lash length or volume for me. It does have a number of advantages, however - it's cheap, it doesn't clump or flake and it …Read more

Nov/23/2007

I have used the Talika Eyebrow Lipocils for both the eyebrows and for the eyelashes (since it has the same ingredients as the one for lashes) but have had more success with it for the brows.

I initially used the treatment for the eyelashes and I did not notice any difference to my lashes when I used this, as instructed, twice a day for over a month. In fact, it caused some stinging so …

Nov/23/2007

I bought this foundation/concealer/powder which was recommended by my beautician, who said it would be the best thing for my acne-prone sensitive skin. She said that it is so good for your skin that you can wear it when you exercise and it's also versatile - can be used a concealer by dotting it on problem areas, as a foundation by mixing it with moisturiser and as a powder/light foundation …Read more

Self Tanners - St.Tropez - Tinted Self Tanning Mousse/Whipped Bronze

Aug/19/2007

If you have the time and patience to use self-tanners, this is the one you should use. I have very fair skin and most self-tanners come out orangey on me. The St tropez self-tanners are the only ones that give me a realistic colour. Although the mouse this as dark as the lotion version, it doesn't come off patchy like the lotion and doesn't clog your pores as much (if you use it on your …Read more

This is a pretty good hand cream. It has a nice consistency, very hydrating, absorbs quickly and your hands are soft for a while after you apply it. It has a citrusy smell that some might not like.
I would not repurchase as there are equally effective hand creams around that are much cheaper (e.g. palmer's, nivea etc)
Ingredients:
Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Decyl Oleate …
