Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Sol de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Is this the cure for cellulite? Unfortunately not. I've had much better results with a simple coffee scrub (just save the coffee grinds from your cup and use in the shower daily, the caffeine content encourages blood flow and tightens the skin - works a treat for me but needs to be repeated daily). Now onto this, love the packaging and invested in a full size jar. It has this almost marzipan …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Dermalogica - Body Hydrating Cream

Have you ever walked past an Aromatherapy shop and been hit by the smell of all those essential oils? If so you'll know exactly what this body cream smells like! Well, actually it's a lotion...I have no idea why it's labelled as a cream, the consistency is quite runny and absorbs in without a trace. I doubt this would be moisturizing enough for drier skin types. I used this on my …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Charlotte Tilbury - Hollywood Flawless Filter

I use this as a base initially, before foundation & concealer and also as a highlighter once I've applied everything else. It gives an amazing brightening effect that just brings out something else in my complexion and makeup, and makes it look that much better. Excellent value for money too - I cannot see this finishing anytime soon, and I'm using it on an almost daily basis - …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Too Faced - Peach Mist Mattifying Setting Spray

4.0

26 days ago

Smells of delicious peach candy and helps to keep my makeup looking like I applied it not too long ago! The 'mattifying' claim is what instantly drew me to this product as especially on my t-zone I have a hard time getting foundation or CC cream to stay put, it oxidizes and just plain evaporates within several hours of applying. Also I happen to love their 'Just peachy Velvet Matte …Read more

Hair Treatments - Redken - Frizz Dismiss Mask

30 days ago

Brilliant hair mask. I loved the Frizz Dismiss shampoo but not the conditioner...and then I tried this! It's the icing on the cake in this collection. I use it for about 10 minutes (20 if I get the chance) just once a week on towel-dried hair, before rinsing out. Helps soften my hair and ends, and of course tames that dreadful frizz too. Smells lovely, doesn't leave any residue and …Read more

Conditioner - Redken - Frizz Dismiss Conditioner

2.0

1 month ago

As much as I love the Frizz Dismiss shampoo, the conditioner just isn't working out for me and here's why...it does exactly the opposite of what it's supposed to be doing. When I use the shampoo alone I get results on frizz taming, but when I add in the conditioner I get the opposite effect for some strange reason - it literally undoes what the shampoo did! Not immediately apparent …Read more

Shampoo - Redken - Frizz Dismiss Shampoo

1 month ago

Absolutely any help my frizzy hair can get is welcome and I've definitely tried my fair share of products! This one, although a bit on the pricey side is as good as any. Helps reduce the frizz on all but the worst of humid days, it lathers very well for a Sulfate-free shampoo and not only does it help with taming my hair but it seems to be improving the condition aswell - my hair feels a lot …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Retro Matte Lipstick - Flat Out Fabulous

5.0

1 month ago

I'm in love with this stunning neon-pink/fuchsia lippie by MAC. I start with MAC's Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in 'Fashion Boost' (was a limited edition) and then Flat Out Fabulous for a bold neon look. It's a pretty matte lipstick so expect a degree of drying if you don't use a lip exfoliator and lip balm beforehand. This one doesn't tug, has no glitter or shimmer …Read more

Masks - GLAMGLOW - Flashmud Brightening Treatment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

A surprisingly effective mask. It's a clay-based 2-3 times weekly treatment with some impressive ingredients - AHA's, BHA's and brightening botanicals. Using a brush so as not to contaminate the product, I apply a very thin layer and leave it on for about 20 minutes before washing off. I'm now on my 3rd application and I can see a brighter tone, along with an improvement in …Read more

Cleansers - Paula's Choice - Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

My favorite cleanser, which I was convinced I'd already reviewed but turns out I'd imagined that! It's just the perfect consistency, not too drying yet not too mild so as to not cleanse properly. Also helps keep oil production at bay, I immediately see the difference when I stop using it and switch to a different cleanser - both in oiliness and my skins' texture. True …Read more
