Scrubs - Fresh - Sugar Face Polish Exfoliator

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Yesterday

Effective, but gentle. Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. The base is like runny honey. Its sticks to your face well without pieces falling off so its not messy. Lots of scrubbies so you don't need to use a whole heap - around 3 - 4g a time does it. Doesn't over-dry or strip skin. Doesn't leave an oily film on the skin. Rinses clean quickly and easily. Doesn't cling to …Read more

Scrubs - St. Ives - Radiant Skin Pink Lemon & Mandarine Orange Scrub

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Yesterday

The one I just purchased stated Radiant Skin but it goes under different names. I first tried their Apricot Scrub, but that was too harsh, and I don't want broken capillaries on my mature sensitive skin. So when I heard the Pink Lemon & Mandarin Scrub was the more gentle version I brought it. Well ultra gentle but probably TOO gentle as its ineffective - at least as an exfoliator. Its …Read more

Masks - It's Skin - The Fresh Mask Sheet - Avocado

I got the sheet mask in "Rose". The scent is divine, like burying your nose in a real scented rose, blooming on a rose bush. I was expecting something artificial. Its saturated with plenty of serum, so you can pop it back in its packet in the fridge and repeat the mask the next morning if you want. Or use it down your neck and arms.

The mask didn't fit me as well these …

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Shalimar Souffle de Parfum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

12 days ago

To me this smells like a cross between Christian Dior Dune X The Body Shop White Musk, with a little whisper of lemon and orange flower blossoms. Its not a gourmand. Definitely oriental, warm and cosy with a rich white musk and amber (not listed in the notes) base. Some people might find it too masculine as it is rich, and gives a slight aftershave vibe. I think it could easily be worn by a man …Read more

Lips - Australis - Get Plumped Lip Plumper

3.0
Created with Sketch.

15 days ago

A sheer light pink lip balm in a squeezy tube. Feels a bit grainy on the lips at first. But if I rub my lips together it melts into a smooth slippery balm which feels moisturising. For the lip plumping part, everyone responds to these type of products differently. This Australis one gives my lips a burning feeling but doesn't actually plump them. Tastes very faintly of vanilla bubble …Read more

Treatments - Essie - grow stronger

16 days ago

Makes my nails stained yellow if I leave it on for more than a few days. Didn't make my nails stronger. Takes ages to dry, around 15 minutes. I don't like the semi opaque ballet pink tint. Its tricky to get looking even, making you think you HAVE to apply another coat to even it up or nail color when I don't want to. Sometimes I want a clear shine. But this yellows my nails and …Read more

An effortless, smooth and silky textured blush with a soft glow that gives skin a pretty, youthful look. Soft Peach 02 is a light peach that naturally flatters my fair skin with cool yellow/olive undertone. It goes on smooth and blends smoothly, never looks patchy or overdone. Works easily with a variety of brushes. A fluffy light natural haired brush gives a soft barely there flush. Buffed in …Read more

Blush - wet n wild - Ombre Blush

5.0

26 days ago

I have the shade "Mai Tai Buy You a Drink", a very pale matte peachy pink. I find it a similar effect to Clarins Illuminating Cheek Color in 02 Soft Peach. Wet n Wild is slightly brighter pinker peach while the Clarins slightly more nudish peach, but both are quite close, giving the perfect natural my-cheeks-but-better flush for my very fair skin with cool yellow undertone. Both apply …Read more

Fragrances - Cacharel - Amor Amor

30 days ago

Fragrantica calls this a fruity floral, but I'd call it a sweet Floriental. On initial spray I get orange juice, bitter blackcurrant, grapefruit, but its gone in about a minute. The fruit is sadly short lived. Then I get a sweet powdered sugar, waxy florals, and lots of heavy white musk and amber. Also some dirty patchoulli which is not listed in the notes. If you like the body shop White …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Zoeva - 106 powder brush

1.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Synthetic very soft brush with long floppy medium density bristles. Not dense enough for pressed powders or powder foundation. Doesn't pick up enough product. But too dense, ie not fluffy enough for loose finishing powders. It picks up too much powder and moves foundation around. The hairs on mine keep shedding and shedding every time I use it. The fat bulky handle feels way too heavy and …Read more
