I love this for that special occasion. It gives a wonderful glow to the skin pre-makeup. I like how it hooks over the ears so it hugs the face tightly and securely so I can do other stuff instead of wasting my time laying down so my normal soppy wet sheet mask doesn't slide off. I put this on while I blow-dry and style my hair; before I do my makeup. It takes me about 15 mins to get my hair …Read more

Reminded me of my younger days.
I've outgrown girly scents like this but I still use this at home. This is winner because it is SO CHEAP! It's a guilty pleasure of mine since it smells "too young" but I like sweet scents; Rahat Loukoum and Eau de Charlotte(edp only) are the only sweet ones I dare wear out.

No.5 smells very different these days to how it was in the 90s. I stopped getting it and only got back to Chanel perfumes (another favourite was Coco noir extrait) when Eau Premiere came out which worked well for me when I was living in China. L'eau is a wonderful representative for No.5 and Premiere when I am in hot tropical climates and much as I love classic perfumes, they give me a …Read more

I was at Sephora picking up my Alterna products and decided to give Percy & Reed a try. This is fabulous. I love the packaging, it's cute and girly and the best thing is it works. It gave my baby fine and limp hair lots of volume without weighing it down. I've a short chin-skimming bob so I am not sure if it'll work as well on longer hair. It is not sticky or tacky …Read more

I am on my 7th bar already so my review is well overdue.

I wanted a no-nonsense simple foaming cleanser to use in the mornings and after my oil cleansing at night.

This doesn't leave my skin taut and dry and it smells lovely. It is a pure and simple bar of soap with some added goodness to it. I'm Asian, anything ginseng gets me excited. Really.

I voted yes for the re-purchase option because I did.

However I found a better serum recently and loving it's effects.

This one is good for when I'm in a hurry and it does do pretty well as a makeup-base. Must be the silicones in this. If you want more skincare benefits out of this pretty bottle, highly probable you will be disappointed.

Visually it reminds me of those cheap makeup palettes aimed at little girls. Which gives me a warm buzzy feeling. However it also applies like cheap makeup. For a not very cheap price.

I really want to give a nicer review but everything seems so bad from em cosmetics.

Which is surprising seeing she has been blogging for so long and knows exactly what makes a fine …

Doesn't moisturise well, doesn't do diddly.

There are many good quality lip balms out there that are the same price range or cheaper.

This was given to me by my neighbour so I am very glad I did not pay for this mediocre product.

Save your money, it'll be better spent elsewhere.

Oh dear, I have nothing against this girl but her products are horrible. I have access to them because my neighbour works in the beauty industry and he gets lots of products that he doesn't use and he needed feedback anyway. Lucky me.

This one doesn't smell very good, it oxidised on me and almost nothing oxidises on me! These two I can handle actually, worst thing is it broke …

Worst mascara ever in the history of my life.

Clumpy and then later, flaky and thanks to the flaky part, my poor eyes got irritated and sore. I have to go the doctor and get antibiotic eyedrops and can't wear contact lenses for 2 weeks. The last time I had an eye infection was about 10 years ago and I've switched to dailies and have not suffered any eye woes till em …
