God I love this. It smells gorgeous, exfoliates very well, and leaves lots of oils/butters on the skin. I use it instead of applying body lotion everywhere, I don't have time to walk around without clothes on waiting for that to sink in. Scrubee is much quicker and easier, and keeps my very dry body skin soft and well moisturised.
The only downside is the scrubby bits can be a pain to …

SO drying. The most drying lipsticks I've ever tried, and I've tried an awful lot. It's so disappointing as there are many stunning colours, the packaging is beautiful, the lipsticks are mostly unscented, LQ aren't a huge multinational company... Everything should be perfect, but they're just so dry. Irrespective of finish or texture, even the super sheer sheeny balm-like …Read more

These are NOT matte. Obviously it says mattelustre and not plain matte but you'd expect SOME degree of matte to it... There's none, it's just a standard creamy lipstick. I loathe creamy ones, they feel sticky, tacky and drying on me. The pigmentation is ok but I've seen plenty better, I dislike the packaging...They're just a meh and totally mis-advertised. Don't buy …Read more

Really, really like these. They're not super cheap but they're certainly affordable, and always on offer in the UK. Fragrance free, which is big plus for me, apply smoothly and have decent pigmentation. There are loads of lovely colours as well, it's a bigger range than most chemist brands. I wouldn't say the formulation was moisturising but it's not dry. The No7 …Read more

This actually performs very well and was a good shade match so I'm giving two lipsticks for that. I probably would have given it five lipsticks if not for the fact that it broke me out more than any product I've ever used. It gave me horrendous huge cystic acne that's taken ALMOST THREE MONTHS to get rid of. I threw the tube away, good performance for a day's wear isn't …Read more

Sep/05/2015

Just rubbish. I read SO many reviews on loads of websites saying that this was the best heat protector ever and the only one to make serious difference to heat damage. Well, that was nonsense. No better than anything else on any level. I used it for nearly a year on and off, my hair was no better. The packaging is weird and annoying, the lid was difficult to get on and off and trying to do so …Read more

I have all the brushes except the oval shadow brush, I like my eyeshadow brushes waaaay smaller than that one. The others, with the exception of the foundation brush, are stunning. The foundation brush is a weird shape and just didn't perform at all well for me. It took forever to get foundation on and blended, and it just didn't seem quite right. Also, despite the softness of the …Read more

I have terrible trouble getting sunscreen that's right for my skin, it was basically impossible before this product existed. Almost all my boxes are ticked by it; fragrance free, non greasy, alcohol free, "physical" sunscreen, cruelty free, full of antioxidants and beneficial ingredients, doesn't seem to clog my pores or cause spots, matte finish but not drying/doesn't …Read more

Best concealer brush ever. Most of them are waaaay too big for concealing spots, I can't understand why they're made like that. This one is the perfect size and shape for spots, good quality, the bristles are firm enough to blend product without splaying everywhere but they're perfectly soft and not scratchy. The brush looks expensive and classy, as it should when it costs so …Read more

Styling Products - Bumble and bumble - Straight Blow Dry

Jun/23/2015

This is the best styling product I've found for taking kinks out of my hair. I still need to use straighteners after blow drying, but it's a much easier job with this product. I have awful frizzy, sort of wavy, sort of curly with the odd random straight bit hair, I can't air dry as it just looks disgusting. My hair is incredibly thick so it takes forever to dry, and I hate having …Read more
