Lip Treatments - trilogy - Intensive Lip Treatment

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2010

I'm a long-time fan of Trilogy and recently bought this lip treatment after years of curiosity. Initially I quite liked it: it felt nice on my lips, lasted a decent amount of time and wasn't too sticky. Unfortunately, over the next few days it caused my lips to become increasingly dry and tight, eventually developing small cracks and a coating of peeling, flaky skin. I persisted with …Read more

Skincare - Body - LUSH - Heavanilli Massage Bar

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/16/2010

Like many others, I used the Heavanilli massage bar as moisturiser rather than for massage. I glide it over my body and it sort of melts and transfers upon contact. It's easier and a bit more fun to apply than regular moisturiser. The bar (and your skin, after application!) smells REALLY good. I'm a vanilla fan, and this is a particularly nice vanilla. Lots of people seem to appreciate …Read more

Hair Treatments - Sukin - Botanical Protein Hair Treatment

Jan/16/2010

I've been pinching dabs of this from my sister's pot every-now-and-then since she bought it a few weeks ago. It smells really nice (interestingly, somewhat like lemon meringue pie) which is something that's of huge importance to me in a hair product. I use it as a leave-in to make my hair soft, smell good, and hopefully repair it a little. This product is very well-priced and I get …Read more

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Beeswax Lip Balm

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/07/2010

This was one of those products that you really, really want to like but despite exaggerating the benefits and trying to overlook the negatives, you really, really do not like it. Quite simply, this dries out my lips. I suspect that this is the doing of the peppermint oil, which I have always found to be drying in lip products. Beeswax has never done much good for me, either. Perhaps people who …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Burt's Bees - Citrus & Ginger Root Body Wash

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/06/2010

Hey, impressive! I've just gotten out of the shower after using this for the first time. I used it with one of those fluffy body scrubbers made of netting, and found that it lathered up a lot. Although the product was runny and watery in the bottle, the suds were thick and really creamy. It was an effective cleanser without causing my skin to feel dry afterwards. It has a very unusual but …Read more

Conditioner - Burt's Bees - Volumizing with Soy and Pomegranate

4.0

Dec/10/2009

This stuff does amazing things to my hair, moisturising it beautifully and leaving it soft with a nice amount of volume. It's a really lovely conditioner, and based purely upon performance, deserves 5/5. But it smells DISGUSTING: reviewer sparkly_sarah described it as "gassy" which is spot-on. It lingers, too, making its presence noticable days after use. Strangely enough, it …Read more

Powders - LUSH - Candy Fluff Dusting Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2009

This product seemed pretty useless to me for a few weeks after purchasing. I bought it based upon reviews and how much everyone- and their partners- seemed to love the scent, but did nothing for my skin and the scent wore off within a few minutes. I was terribly disappointed and annoyed at myself for having wasted money.


Then, the weather warmed up and Candy Fluff suddenly made …

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Dream Liquid Mousse

4.0

Dec/04/2009

This is a very nice foundation, it is quick and easy to apply and feels comfortable on my dry skin. It covers blemishes (I have even found it suitable for use as a concealer) and evens my skintone whilst retaining a natural look, and "airbrushed" is actually a pretty accurate description...! The packaging is also pretty cool, despite glass bottles freaking me out a bit. Good stuff, good …Read more

Hair - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Apple Cider Vinegar for Hair

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2009

I have used this several times. It has a really good effect on my hair, leaving it very shiny, clarified and detangled. After shampooing, I rubbed it into my hair and rinsed, using no other conditioner- this has the added benefit of allowing me to wash my hair less frequently, as it in no way coats the hair or causes it to become "greasy". It certainly has the potential to dry out hair …Read more

Conditioner - OGX - Tahitian Vanilla Silk Conditioner

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/12/2009

So I was silly and bought this product because it smelt nice, before reading any reviews.


I have found it totally unusable as a regular conditioner as it makes my hair very tangled and dry- much worse than it is when I don't use conditioner at all. It's truly awful, and something I have never experienced in a conditioner before. To avoid rendering this product a total …
