Perfect alternative to all those baby-smelling baby oils. The scent is neutral and the oil is soft and warming.
Packaging could be better because the plastic tends to get too sticky from spilled oil. But it is nice that it is unbreakable!
I use it as a bodylotion after showering, to take of make-up and as a base for an aspirin mask. My sensitive skin loves it.

Fragrances - L'Occitane - Neroli EDP (L'Oranger line)

This starts out as a mildly fresh, woody scent but turns to something sweet en cloying. The lingering scent on my skin is just a bit too sweet for me. It makes me feel over-ripe. After a day or so what is left on textile is a subtle sweet scent that is very nice.
The bottle is very pretty, it captures the light en the red-orange liquid looks like a giant amber gem.
It could be a …

I love this in 217 Bronze. It is easy to apply and does not require sharpening, it glides easy on the sin and can be used light as well as dramatic. It blends well and lasting power is decent. On hot days it can melt.
Bronze is greenish brown colour that is neither too cool nor too warm. It is a perfect match to my natural dark golden blonde hair and ashy dark blond eyebrows. An expensive …

Blush - Paula's Choice - Barely There Sheer Matte Blush [DISCONTINUED]

I love this in Flawless Nude. It is a perfect, warm and natural shade for my pale warm comlexion. It's a lovely understated shade of peach that you can build from barely there to quite obvious if so desired. The quality of a blush depends mostly on colour match so this is hard to recommend but Paula's choice offers a good range for a decent price, it looks natural on the skin and is …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - RoC - Enydrial anti-drying cleansing gel

Sep/28/2008

I've been on a life long search for a gentle cleansing gel that removes make up without leaving my dry, sensitive and break out prone skin itchy, dry and irritated. None have pleased me so as this. It is free of perfume, has added glycerine and lathers nicely. HG for me and my atopic skin. It does not prevent me from breakout, but it does make my skin look healthy instead of flaking. My …Read more

Lips - L'Oreal Paris - Glam Shine Cream - Sweet Nude

#100 Sweet nude is a very neutral, my lips but better shade. The creamy formula glides on very smooth and has a nice smell and tase. It isn't as shiny is the name implies but it has a nice creamy finish that feels like a lipbalm. Lasting power isn't very great and I need to reapply about every hour to keep the smooth feeling and colour. At aroud 10 euro, I find it quite expensive …Read more

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish - Metallic Shimmer

Jul/10/2007

I bought this shade hoping it would be the same quality as coffee shimmer but in a better shade for me.
While I love the consistency and feel of coffee shimmer, this one feels different on my lips. It feels dryer and more gritty, probably cause of the glitter in it.
The smell and taste are very pleasant for a lipstick. As for the colour, I had hoped it would be a bit more neutral but …

Jul/09/2007

I thnk this is paula's best foundation. It goes on pretty sheer, but covers just enough to even out my skin-tone. If I use cover up my imperfections first, this foundation gives a nice natural semi-matte finish. The finish keeps away shine pretty well and lasts longer than most TM type foundations.
I love that it comes with SPF 20, I only use additional suncreen under my eyes.
I …

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - Hydralight Moisture-Infusing Lotion

Jul/05/2007

I was quite pleased with Paula's balancing moisture gel but I felt my skin needed more moisture, specially in winter time so I switched to this.
I do not care for the bottle. The mouth easily gets clogged and it is impossible to get the last of the product out which feels like a useless waste.
The lotion itself dries very quick, so quick that it can be hard to evenly spread it …

Hair - Weleda - Rosemary Conditioning Hair Oil

Jul/04/2007

I use this before going into the shower once or twice a week as a special treatment for my dry, damaged hair.
I smooth it through my hair and let it sink in before I wash my hair. It could do with a better smell, but since it's gone after washing I'm ok with it.
I've found this works as a nice conditioning hairmask, making my hair more manageble and shiny. I'm not …
