Self Tanners - Superdrug - Solait Moisturising Gradual Tan Body Lotion

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/05/2013

I use gradual tan body lotion most mornings, and have stuck with the St Tropez version for years (both the light/medium and medium/dark versions). My only real issue with St Tropez gradual tan is that the lotion is quite thick, so I end up using a large amount each time to get neck to toe coverage. Then, one day, there was a three-for-two offer on Boots No7 so I tried their gradual tan. I found …Read more

Skincare - Body - Unlisted Brand - Monoi de Tahiti oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2013

I'm using the 'Tipanie' (frangipani) version at the moment, which I bought in order to compare it with Elemis' Frangipani Monoi Melt. I'm not a huge fan of having to warm up my oils to liquefy, but such is the nature of coconut oil. And actually, the feeling of warm oil smoothed into the skin is delicious - so, worth the extra hassle. Also, being in solid form makes it …Read more

Cleansers - Superdrug - Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2013

Superdrug's Vitamin E range has never caught my eye. At a glance, it appears so bland and cheap and uninspiring.
But lately I've been on a mission to find hot cloth cleansers to rival my Liz Earle and Elemis versions but at high-street prices. I still enjoy my Cleanse and Polish, and like my Pro-Radiance cleanser even more, but what I've noticed is a striking similarity in the …

Skincare - Body - ELEMIS - Evening Blooms Dry Body Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/11/2013

Elemis is hit and miss for me. I tend to prefer their facial care products over their body products - despite it being a spa brand! I've enjoyed using their Frangipani Monoi Melt, though having to warm up the product to liquidise it could be a pain. And though it smelt and felt heavenly on the skin, it was basically over-priced coconut oil with fragrance added! That said, it was delicious to …Read more

Moisturizers - Omorovicza - Rejuvenating Night Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/11/2013

I usually find that night creams are too rich/heavy/greasy/pore-clogging for my combination skin (normal cheeks, oil-prone T zone), so I tend to just put on a serum before bed, or an anti-ageing day cream without SPF. I was using a day cream from this line as my night cream, and liked it, so was curious about the Rejuvenating Night Cream. It has a soft, buttery texture and colour and a smell of …Read more

Pressed Powders - theBalm Cosmetics - Sexy Mama Anti-Shine Translucent Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/11/2013

A good powder - I liked it, though not to the point where I'm desperate to repurchase now that I've run out. I only use powder as a mattifier for my oily lids or as an eyeshadow base, and to set under-eye concealer. (Occasionally, I'll use it to anchor lipstick, too). My point is, though, that I use it predominantly only on/around eyes, as I don't like to powder over my base …Read more

Skincare - Body - Unlisted Brand - Martha Hill Orange Body Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2013

I tend to buy more of the Evening Primrose and Lavender version of this body oil, purely because I like to use oils most of all after a bath before bed. However, the orange is a great AM option, certainly in the summer. The ingredients are very similar to the EP and L body oil, so chances are, if you like one, you'll like the other. Retails for about £7 for 250ml, which I consider great …Read more

Skincare - Body - Unlisted Brand - Martha Hill Evening Primrose and Lavender Body Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2013

A lovely gentle lightweight oil which my 'normal' skin absorbs fast. I find a little goes a long way, though even if I've applied it excessively, it's still gentle and comfortable on my skin. A short ingredients list, featuring no artificial colours, fragrance, primary petro-chemicals or parabens. In fact, it comprises only six carrier oils, one essential oil and vitamin E …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Marks & Spencer Pure Instant Radiance Hot Cloth Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2013

I love hot cloth cleansers, and this one appealed to me because:
1) It has 95% natural ingredients;
2) It's without artificial colours or synthetic fragrance, parabens, silicones, or mineral oil;
3) It's manufactured in a British eco factory;
4) It's widely available in the UK and retails for under £10 for 200ml.

I've been using it to cleanse …

Lotions/ Creams - L'Occitane - Cherry Blossom Hand Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2013

This is one of the lightweight L'Occitane handcreams - ie it contains shea butter, but not at 20%. Therefore, the texture is more of a glossy lotion, than a thicker more nourishing cream. A pleasant enough scent - not one that I consider 'to die for', but pretty without being overpowering, sickly or cloying.
Recommended for normal rather than dry skin types - a pretty …
