Summary
Best make up remover

I wish this was easier to get because I can't find a make up remover that's as good and simple to use.

Amazing showers oil
Summary
The best shower oil

This is a luxurious shower product that makes Your skin feel soft and supple. The smell is good enough to eat. Can be a little tricky to use as you apply to dry skin then lather into a milk with water.

New favourite foundation
Summary
This is a great high end foundation

Despite the name this is not a sheer glowy foundation. It's a medium natural coverage that has a satin but not shiny finish. As its a high end foundation, the price is expected. Definitely worth it

Great drugstore foundation
Summary
One of my top drugstore foundations

For the money and being a drugstore foundation this is one of the better ones. As with all drugstore products, the colour range isn't great and can oxidise to go a bit darker on skin but overall it gives a great glow and coverage. More of a spring, summer foundation...

Disappointed
Summary
Very disappointed after reading rave reviews.

I have long, thick, blonde coloured hair that becomes frizzy and damaged at ends. I had heard great things about this product especially for my type of hair, however, I'm left disappointed as it didn't cure any of my hair problems. it didn't feel moisturising after it rinsed out, it...

Summary
Good spot treatment overall but depends on how aggressive the spot is. Not an acne treatment

For the occasional spot you may get this product is a must for all handbags but doesn't work on the more aggressive spots.

Great gentle exfoliant that smells Devine and results in smooth clear skin

gentle exfoliants are one of the best beauty products to introduce into your cleansing regime and this is one of my top products. I use it every 3 or 4 days. first I cleanse, then I use a clay mask to cleanse deeper, then I use an exfoliant. Makes a...

Great choice of cleanser
Summary
At first i found the texture and application of product a bit alien. It is a creamy texture that you expect from most face masks and when I massaged it into my face, I couldnt really see it lifting the makup. However, as soon as I used the Muslin cloth to wipe away the product and dirt I knew how magical the cream really was. My skin was clear and very smooth.

After reading about this cleanser in most magazines and beauty blogs, I finally decided to purchase it and I wasn't dissapointed. This cleanser is fabulous at vanishing dirt from the skin and the cloth adds to the exfoliating effect. The exfoliating part is not a harsh scrub, it is...

very clumpy
Summary
After using a lot of YSL mascaras I was a bit dissapointed with this one. The untidy brush applicator made it hard to apply. It clumped very easily on my lashes which provided a scary dramatic look (if thats you scene, then this may be for you). I found it to run down my checks when the slightest bit of rain hit them or my eyes got a bit runny (I know its not waterproof, but Ive never had a problem with others mascaras) and flaked often aswell.

Mask to give healthy glow
Summary
Great moisture providing mask, leaving me with dewy smooth looking skin. The packaging however, is terrible as one sachet holds a lot of product, which I managed to get 3 uses out of. So not ideal for storing away whilst not in use. Would prefer it to come in a miniture bottle of sorts.

Im not the biggest expert on masks, as Ive seldom used any before. However, even I can recognise the benefits if this mask. It really did provide lovely moisture to my skin and It felt like rubbing milky honey all over my face. My face didnt feel tight at all...

An ok mascara
Summary
Ive tried this mascara a few time now and I just can't get excited about it. It's nice and black if you apply another coats but the apply Anouilh coats you need carefully application and it begins to clump on lashes. I prefer the use of my other mascaras therefore I don't think I will recommend this product.

Nice little face soap.
Summary
A good face cleanser that's cheap and cheerful, non abrasive to the skin but instead it contains smooth beads that help clean the skin and it builds to a nice lather on skin. I use this in the shower and love the smell everytime x

I really enjoyed this body cream as I found it had a great effect on my skin as well as having a great smell that lasted. I do think there are cheaper body creams out there that will do the trick however, this is a lovely tret for your skin

The smell of Aussie range gets me everytime. It makes me wish that the product actually matched up to smell but it doesn't. This does my hair worse as it goes greasy and heavy.

No other soap exists
Summary
Literally no other soap exists. This is one of the only soaps I have come across that doesn't dry up your skin. It has a cream feel when you lather it on and it smells lovely compared to most as well. Nicely priced too.

Not the best skin care regime
Summary
This may suit other people with different skin types but I felt this dried my skin out a bit and didn't really nourish my skin despite being advised of the right range to get. Definitely ask for samples before buying this range

Summary
Compared to other concealers I've tried and when I needed it most this concealer wins hands down. My only gripe if I had to have one is it doesn't come with a brush which for the price I think it should.

After being advised this product for a long time I opened the war chest and purchased it and happy to say I'm not disappointed one bit. I started using it at a time i needed it most, the dreaded hormonal spots time, and it really did cover the spots like...

Great summer scent
Summary
This is my new summer scent so I can close my eyes and wish I was on the beach. It is a bit expensive for being a skin scent but I would definetly say it lasts long just like a perfume and is definetly a head turning scent. I forgive the price seen as its a limited eddition.

This skin scent is one of two Estee Lauders summer limited edition skin scents. Last year (2011) everywhere had sold out within a few weeks of release, so this year I made sure I was front of the queue to get one. It has a malibu kind of scent...

This is a great miosturing foot cream especially for the price. My self and my partner both use it after long walks and it really does make the difference to your feet. My partner especially has dry feet and it soothes them a lot. Ive tried others but for the price I prefer this one.

Nice cream polish for hair
Summary
This is a great hair styling product. It's not often you get a finishing polish that isn't oily, sticky or gives you that wet look. I prefer it for nice up doos where my hair is slicked. My man uses it occasionally too and for £4 this is a winner.

Okay but you get what you pay for
Summary
This is a cheaper versiOn of bb creams and I'd ay you get what you pay for! At first I liked this on my skin but after a week of use I noticed my skin to have dry patches appear on it which I have never had before! The texture is rough when applying on skin! I won't be using this again as there are much better bb creams out there ! A better alternative is the origins sheer tint! Lovely!

Pricey but good base.
Summary
I really enjoyed using this with my liquid foundation, nice smooth base like a primer but is mainly a moisturiser... This is a good choice if you don't like layering too much product on. Wasn't crazy about the smell and it is quite pricey but personally think its worth it considering the moisture vitamin rich primer benefit.

This cleanser really does make skin nice and soft feeling. Quite a thick texture so you don't need a lot.

Ive been indifferent about burts and bee's products but this cleanser definitely restored faith. It should be called morning fresh cleanser as I feel it leaves skin with that cool fresh feeling like you get when you wash your mouth with listerine (sorry only comparison I could think of). Skin...

Another great lotion from Burt and Bee's
Summary
Not to say that it wont be for other people but I wasn't crazy on the smell of this one. If you specifically love the smell of Bee's wax or honey then you will like this but I'm more of a fruit smell lover so not for me. However, smell aside i found that this lotion really nourished dry skin and had long lasting results.

Great foundation when you have the right colour and the right application. It's a medium to heavy coverage

Use with mineral foundation
Summary
A good primer to use with mineral powder foundations but not with liquid or water based.

I'm undecided with this primer. I would definitely use it with my bare minerals foundations and I guess that what bare minerals have tried to do but for me this doesn't work well with other foundations.

A great light foundation that really doesn't clog my pores. Feels light and flawless, looks light and flawless. Wouldn't recommend for people with badly marked skin.

Best on the market
Summary

I think this was one of the first gell eyeliners to hit the market. I first bought this gem about 5 years ago and since I have tried a lot of others in the market yet this is the one I always return to. Bobbi Brown seem to have hit...

Short term...great...long term not so much.
Summary
I enjoy putting this little beauty onto my lips for short term use. I feel it has instant va va vroom just not a marathon goer. It does stain the lips quite well but the gloss slides away easily.

I purchased the no.17 Encre rose. It really is a beautiful bright pink for summer and I get a bit obsessed with putting it on. I feel I might get through it quite quick.

Best range from John Frieda.
Summary
Didnt score too high on scent because there are nicer smelling hair products out there.

So , my hair type is LONG, thick, straight/wavy, light brown locks. I have recently gone off high street Hair products due to them weighing my hair down and leaving it greasy. this range definitely passes the test of proper cleansing but it's just about finding the right range...
