I bought this in the lightest shade after seeing an online blogger recommend it.

Pros: Cute tube, lovely sponge tip, sweet smell and taste, softens lips.

Cons: Lipglossy texture (can be heavy), applying more than one layer makes the product colour look almost white which is rather unflattering, and the tube gets easily crushed and squeezed in a bag or pockets which means the …

I bought this range (shampoo, conditioner and leave in), because my beloved Redken Blonde Idol has been discontinued.

I love the packaging of the shampoo, and the smell, very delicate, and the product range does definitely calm down yellow or brassy tones (my new hairdresser tried something different and added yellow toned highlights rather than the usual cool tones I prefer), but it …

Powdery at first but very overwhelming and strong after it settles, ever present. Unfortunately doesn't suit my skin.

I have used this for 3 months, every night, before other products, and often with no other products, on my forehead, so that I could effectively test this against a control, the rest of my face which is without the product. On the plus side, my pores are smaller, my complexion appears more airbrushed and softened, and the skin seems softer and smoother. On the negative, I have developed tiny …Read more

I have tried a huge range of hair smoothing products. I would say this is up there. It softens and smooths hair, while keeping it light with movement. I use on wet hair and then blow dry - my hair looks at least 40% smoother and tidier than without the product and without a blow dry. Will continue to buy.

I have had this for about a year and use as needed on spots or lumps. I think it is strong because it does sometimes show up slightly red in areas I have applied it, the next morning (if used overnight), and it does reduce some spots and breakouts by I'd say around 30%, but doesn't kill a spot or a lumpy area or breakout. I think there may be better products out there for that …Read more

I had a breakout flare on more forehead and oily skin areas.

It was not clear what caused the flare. I thought it was antibiotics, therefore it's a PH/skin flora overgrowth (ie yeast like eg Malassezia Folliculities) and my Dr thought it was acne so he pescribed for be Benzol Peroxide cream to apply to the area, which treats Acne Vulgaris bacteria.

Apparently it is …

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Impact Mascara

Feels expensive and high quality - the packaging, and the thick bristled wand. The product seems to go on a little lightly, I needed to go over lashes quite a few times to load the product up, and some lashes did start to tack together with the heavier application. Also, the busy/tightly packed wand bristles took up a lot of space so it was hard to get into the lashes to load them up without …Read more

Deodorants - Dove - Clinical Protection

Smells lovely and does work to reduce odour better than any other deodorant that I've tried to date. However, unfortunately, it irritates my underarms. It makes them itchy and the product seems to seep deep into the glands and forms a matte-link film that doesn't easily wash off. Unfortunately I may need to stick to the more simple and traditional products.

Maybelline does mascara well. There are few brands that have such a thorough and comprehensive range. I have found that the volume and falsies lines are excellent. I have been coming back to this brand for mascara for over 15 years - without fail the coverage is good without being gluggly, every lash is covered and lengthened and spread out, my eyes look bigger, the lash curls upwards and the …Read more
