I bought this product on a trip to the US, thinking that it would be the same as L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss - the packaging is identical. It isn't. The first clue is that you apply it to dry hair rather than wet, as with Casting. This doesn't matter, but it does indicate that the product is different. What does matter is that this product, unlike Casting, doesn't cover grey …Read more

I adore this. Because of medication I'm on, I developed horrendous acne, which I eventually nuked with Avene's TriAcneal, which is super-effective, but left my skin looking dry and tired. To counteract this, I started using this serum day and night. After I had used it twice - one night and one morning - I was in shock, my skin was so visibly improved. Plump, soft, glowing. I felt like …Read more

If you have combination hair - greasy roots and dry ends - you will know what a nightmare it can be. I am sick of my crown being like glue while the rest of my hair is like hay. This stuff is a lifesaver. I use it on the second day, just spray a few puffs onto the crown, leave for a couple of minutes, and brush or work through with my fingers. It sucks up all the gunge from the roots and leaves …Read more

I used this dye on thick, coarse, dark brown hair. I bought this product because it was the only one in the shop in the colour I wanted (darkest brown). I'd previously used Nice N Easy (which I've also reviewed - it was OK, didn't cover grey too well, faded fast.) This was a couple of quid more expensive.

First impressions: I didn't like applying to wet hair as I …

Hair Color - Clairol - Nice 'n Easy Non Permanent Colour

Jan/21/2013

I used this product to cover up the grey in my very dark brown hair. I used the shade 'Dark Brown'. It's very easy to use - not messy, not too stinky. Slight tingling on my scalp which made me paranoid that I was going to be one of those people who have a terrible allergic reaction because, of course, I didn't do the skin test. (Well done to those who do.) Anyway, nothing …Read more

Moisturizers - JASÖN - 5000 I.U. Vitamin E Revitalizing Moisturizing Creme

This is fantastic hand cream, totally moisturises my miserable raw chapped winter hands and returns them to glorious softness. For that, I love it.

BUT I made the ENORMOUS mistake of using this on my FACE. And proceeded to have the worst breakout of my life. It took months to clear up. Actual months. Never seen anything like it.

Be very wary.
