I've just discovered this product and love it.

I have fine, straight, shoulder-length hair which has recently become thin, weak, dry and frizzy. I apply four to six pumps of this oil a few hours before I intend to wash my hair. I sit on the bed, pump the oil into the palms of my hands, rub my palms together, turn my head upside down and spread the oil through my dry hair, roots …

Top/Base Coats - Butter London - Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2016

I'm unsure why people like this product. It goes on streaky and matte, making the nails look unhealthy. If you look closely, there are lots of little lumps or bubbles. A second coat to iron out the streaks increases the bubbles and lumps. Perhaps I got a bad bottle or didn't use it properly, but I certainly wouldn't buy it again. The one thing I did like is the bottle and how you …Read more

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

1.0

Jan/03/2014

I've been using this for a few weeks, but I think I'm going to stop. I can't figure it out. On the one hand, it's greasier than the old formula, and clings to my face like an oil slick (and I don't have naturally oily skin). But on the other hand, it isn't moisturizing, at least not for me – certainly less moisturizing than the old formula or than the Dramatically …Read more

Polishes - CHANEL - Le Vernis Nail Colour

I used Chanel nail polishes in the 90s and loved them. I recently went back to them, and I've been really disappointed. Don't know whether they have changed their formula or whether I've just chosen bad colours. Or perhaps I'm now spoiled having recently discovered Butter London. The latest Chanel I bought is 521 Rose Cache. It is a dirty colour on me. It looks as though I …Read more

BB Cream - Skin79 - The Oriental Gold BB Cream Plus

This didn't suit me at all. It went on thick, was difficult to spread, and made my face look caked and quite a bit older. I see other reviewers talking about a light finish, so maybe I was doing something wrong, but it seemed quite the opposite to me.

Eye Makeup Remover - Klorane - Soothing Eye Makeup Remover with Cornflower Sensitive Eyes

Sep/09/2012

I used this for years with no problem. I don't know whether they have changed the formula, or whether my skin is just getting sensitive to alcohol as I get older, but I used it last night for the first time in ages, and I now have dry eyelids, and tight, red and sore skin around my eyes. Now, this may be because I've been using Roc Wrinkle Correxion night cream with retinol, which would …Read more

Treatments (Face) - RoC - Retinol Correction Deep Wrinkle Night Cream

Sep/09/2012

I see several reviewers saying to stick with this for a few weeks to get over any sensitivity and to start seeing results. I am trying, but it stings and makes my skin red, bumpy, and sensitive to other products.<br>

It does feel nice going on, and it absorbs well, but it has a strong smell. As things stand, I can't see myself buying this again.<br/>

Foundations - Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

Sep/07/2012

I like this a lot. I got fed up a few years ago with wearing foundations and powders, so I've been using either just moisturizer or Aveda Inner Light tinted moisturizer in Aspen (01), which is perfect for my skin colour. The Aveda makes my skin look smooth and dewy, but leaves it just a little tight, and it doesn't have much staying power.

The Garnier colour (the lighter one …
