Sep/05/2015

Ok, so after reading some of the reviews here I was tempted to try this on my face. Being from Portugal, I had seen this product many times before and knew people who used it. My mum always said this was no good, though...

Anyway, being on the pill to control my hormonal acne on my chin, my skin has become a lot drier. I am in need of a rich moisturiser, creams for normal skin …

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Dream Cream Self-Preserving

Aug/29/2015

First time I went into the Lush store I was having a look around... My body skin was dry and this caught my attention because it contains olive oil so high up on the list. I also really liked the lavender scent, which I thought would make it a perfect cream for when I shower or have a bath at night! I bought it on a whim, I had not purchased any Lush items before.

Initially, I really …

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Stay-In-Place Liquid Makeup

I got matched to 2N1 which was too neutral. I then went back for another sample was given 2W1 and 2W2. The latter looks really nice on me, colour wise. It's warm without being too yelow. It suits my Portuguese warm complexion!

However, the formula did not suit my skin so well. It looks too made up and if I try to put it over blemishes it just makes them more noticeable. I used it …

Lotions/ Creams - Lierac Paris - Lipid-replenishing moisturising lotion

3.0

Aug/10/2015

This is the only product I tried from Lierac and, quite frankly, I am not rushing to try any more. This is a nice moisturising lotion but it is nothing special. The fragrance is quite strong (roses) which I don't particularly like. It fades relatively quickly, though. The lotion also feels sticky on the skin but it doesn't take too long to absorb. When my skin was at its driest (after …Read more

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Twilight Bath Bomb

This was the first bath bomb I bought from Lush and definitely my favourite so far. I didn't like Tisty Tosty at all and was disappointed by Think Pink. This one is much better, in my opinion.

The bomb is huge so I broke it in half and so it lasted me for 2 baths. I really like the lavender scent, is truly calming and relaxing. I like the purple tinge in the water as well, makes …

Eye Makeup Remover - VICHY - Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover for Sensitive Eyes

3.0

Jun/17/2015

Mine is the one with the new packaging. Takes make off well (have not used it with waterproof mascara, only Dior show overcurl) but it stings my eyes so badly. It also leaves a bit of residue, even though the residue is not too much and I saw no ill effects from it. Still, can't handle the burn. I am glad it finished last night and I will not buy again.

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Think Pink Bath Bomb

I really wanted to like this bath bomb..., I bought it because I really like pink, it looked cute and I read good reviews. Well, I happened not to enjoy this bath bomb that much. It was just ok.

First of all, this is definitely a one use type of bomb. Even using it all in one go, I could not smell anything once the bomb dissolved. It added some softness to water, but it was minimal …

Jun/15/2015

I was really excited to try this bath bomb! Bath products wise I am what is often referred to 'as such a girl' because I actually really enjoy pampering baths. If I just need to get washed, I'll have a shower. If I am having a bath, it's because I want some pamper time!

Unfortunately, I did not get much pamper out of this bath bomb. It looked so cute in the shop …

Body Scrubs - Caudalie - Crushed Cabernet Scrub

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/08/2015

This is the best body scrub I have ever used. My skin can get pretty rough and dry- I live in a place with very hard water. This scrub is gentle yet buffs my skin incredibly well. Works quickly, too. Rinses off easily, smells natural and invigorating... My skin is left baby smooth and glowy. I just wish it was cheaper. I was lucky to have it for free as a gift with purchase. £21 for a body scrub …Read more
