Aug/08/2010

Mentholatum is one of my favourite Japanese sunscreen brands so I was very excited to see them release a BB Cream. It comes in 2 versions: Silky and Moisture. Moisture is geared towards normal/dry skintypes while Silky is designed for oily skin. My skin gets quite oily so this review is for the Silky one.



BB Creams are not new but they are not as popular outside Asia. They …

Cleansers - Avene - Cleanance Cleansing Gel

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/30/2010

Liked this at first but something in it flares up my seborrheic dermatitis so I can't use it. What a shame. I liked everything else about it (except the slightly high price). It's well worth trying if your skin is oily, even if it's only a little bit. The cleanser is thorough yet quite gentle.

Jul/30/2010

Believe the hype and good reviews here on this fantastic Avene product. It does what it says it does. I can't believe it's taken me so long to try it! I have very oily skin and this lotion is extremely useful as a morning primer for underneath my makeup. I also like to mix a little with my foundation to make tinted moisturiser. Avene Antishine Regulating Lotion really makes quite a …Read more

Liquid - Boots - Botanics Complexion Refining Foundation

Jul/25/2010

I was kind of excited to see this French-made foundation by Boots Botanics so cheaply on eBay. It's designed for oily skin "with clarifying rosemary and burdock extracts". I'm always looking for something new that copes with my oilies so I thought I'd give this a shot. But I'm disappointed. Maybe I need to experiment with primers or application techniques but …Read more

Shampoo - LUSH - The Blonde

5.0

Jul/09/2010

I have fine hair which I dye blonde. I am prone to an oily scalp. My hair is long so the ends can get a little neglected. The Blonde solid shampoo handles all my little hair quirks nicely, although do use a good conditioner for your ends because this one is not the most moisturising. But boy, does it clean my scalp! Yet it seems to do so with loving care :-) I love the rich creamy lather from …Read more

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Allure Genial

Jul/09/2010

A very bright shade which is some magical blend of bright pink and coral. As a previous reviewer mentioned - very tropical! As soon as I saw it I had to have it. It's very unique in my lipstick collection. I really like it, don't regret buying it, but it's not one I reach for that often because it is one of those shades that could easily clash with other makeup or the clothes …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Rock Star

Jul/09/2010

This seems to be one of those "love it or hate it" type products but I'm rather liking this one. I got it as a gift. It has a nice creamy lather and a sweet girly fragrance. It doesn't offend me in any way, it does the job in my morning shower, and has been one of my better Lush soap purchases. However I probably won't repurchase - I generally prefer liquid soaps to bars …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Renewist Lipcolor in Blush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2010

This is called "Full Blush" here in Australia. It's a really lovely, soft, rosy shade. A deeper MLBB on me. For some unknown crazy reason, Revlon discontinued one of the best, most moisturising lipstick lines they ever made. I found this in a $5 bargain bin at my local pharmacy and I was so excited to see it, having already bought Red Reinvented and loving it. This is one of those …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Goody - Spin Pin

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2010

I have fine, long hair. These are great but not absolutely fantastic for me. Maybe my technique is off but I have had hair fall out of my bun with these, and this has happened more than once. I do find that they hold better for me if I use an elastic to secure a pony first. When shaping the bun, you have to really tuck the ends in properly before pinning. Contrary to the instructions, I have …Read more

Lip Gloss - Bonne Bell - Lip Lites Angel Food Cake

Jul/02/2010

If I had only one word to describe this? Delicious. :-) Smells yummy and is sweet to taste. It's a nice shade of pink too. Nothing too bright or crazy. I like the formula - so smooth and shiny without being at all sticky. It is super pleasant to use and it feels like a moisturising lip treatment. Great doe-foot applicator and generous amount of product in the tube. Winner!! I would …Read more
