Simple and Mild
Summary
A very gentle eye make-up remover which is so easy and friendly to use. It doesn't sting and it's very effective. Also it leaves my eyes feeling very soft and hydrated. I've tried expensive eye make-up removers in the past, but none have been as good as this.

Eaux de Toilette
Understated
Summary
I have always liked Yardly's perfumes. They bring back lots of memories from my childhood. They are fresh and understated and the scent stays with you for a long time. They are also extremely good value for money. I recommend all their perfumes and ask that you all give them a go. As I said they don't cost a lot and they are extremely British.

Eaux de Toilette
Sickly and Sweet
Summary
I didn't like this eau de toilette one bit. From the moment I smelt it to trying it on, all I could smell was a very rich, unpleasant fruity aroma with a sickly sweet undertone. If you like your fruity and sweet perfumes, then this is for you, but I think I'll stick with the more floral and musky aromas.

Cheap and not Cheerful
Summary
I have always used Smashbox Cream eyebrow definers, but I thought I would give this a go. I wasn't at all pleased with it and felt like I was a child crayoning in! I much prefer to use a brush. The colour wasn't at all natural too.

Luxury Mascara
Summary

I received this very generous sized sample and I'm so pleased I did - it's fantastic. I don't normally wear black mascara as I find it too harsh for me, so I was very surprised and pleased with the results from this. I was going to a party...

Exfoliators and Body Scrubs
70's Throwback
Summary

I was lucky to be sent the Jasmine Body Scub to trial. Upon opening the pot, I was immediately drawn back to the 70's with a very strong smell of Jasmine Essential oil. I love Jasmine, but not this strong. It remineded me of joss sticks. I stirred the...

Old Favourite
Summary

I've been buying this off and on for years now. I'll stop for a while, but always go back to it. It has a wonderful seductive musky smell (according to my husband) and the oil base makes my skin feel so soft. I'd be lost if they ever stopped producing...

Time For the Dove
Summary
It's that time of the year again, when I start applying Dove's Summer Glow. It is so easy to apply and smells wonderful. It does leave a radiant glow afterwards and the tan builds up gradually making me look very healthy.

5* Mascara
Summary
I've spent so much money trying to find a decent mascara and at long last I have found one. I won't be turning my back on this now. I have a bag full of mascaras with promises of this and that and none of them lived up to their promises. Clinique high lengths mascara does exactly what it says and much more.

Body Moisturisers
2 for 1
Summary
I love this duel pot from Body Shop. The creamy whipped side, I use as a normal body moisturiser and the thicker butter side I use for my elbows, knees and ankles. This is my favourite Body Shop product and I cannot recommend it enough.

Orange & Cinnamon - A Perfect Marriage
Summary
As soon as you open the bottle, you get this beautiful scent of orange and cinnamon. It foams well, but it is a bit thin and I would love the scent to last on my skin, but I feel that as soon as I've washed it off, it has gone. Leaves the bathroom smelling lovely though. For the price, this is a real must have.

Luxury in a Bottle
Summary
I was lucky enough to be sent a smaller bottle to trial by Estée Lauder. I began using it straight away and I did notice a difference, my skin felt smooth and plump. I've now finished the bottle, but unfortunately, it is far too expensive for me.

Long Lasting Cleansing Bar
Summary
A Cleansing Bar, which can be mistaken by the rest of the family as a bar of soap. However it works wonderfully and lasts for such a long time. There is no scent or thrills. It comes in it's own container and it does what it says on the packet.

I think that this is good value for money. It is not a soap and it lasts so much longer than any cleansing bar that I have used in the past.

Pure and Simple
Summary

The first thing you notice about this is the smell. It's so fresh with a beautiful smell of geraniums. I applied it by using cotton wool pads and gently rubbing onto my face using circular motions. I then took a clean pad and wiped off the excess. My face...

Summary

You get alot of gel for your money and it goes a long way. It's Incredibly versatile. I've recently run out of Vitamin E Creamy Neck Gel by The Body Shop and instead of buying another, I've been using this. It absorbs so quickly onto your skin and feels so...

A Combined Moisturiser and Face Oil
Summary
A beautiful smelling organic moisturiser with Shea Butter and Jojoba oil, extracts of Marigold and Blue Chamomile and the essential oils of Frankincense and Myrrh.

I love the no fuss style pot that it comes in, however, you do need something else to help get the product out, as it is a solid moisturiser. However, once you've done this and massaged it onto your face, it feels wonderful. It absorbs very easily, but be careful,...

I bought this in On and On Bronze and I love it. It's a beautiful rich colour, which is so easy to apply and lasts all day. It feels so rich and creamy.

I was given 3 new perfumes for my birthday and this was one of them. It came in a gift set with the body lotion. I'd never used it before and I didn't know what it smelt like. From the minute I put it on, I was hooked....

Lovely is Lovely
Summary
This was bought for me as a birthday present and I absolutely love it. The name is perfect - Lovely. Everything about it, from the bottle to to the Parfum is Lovely.

This is not an overpowering Parfum. It has a delicate smell of flowers and spices. I applied this in the morning and the smell was still there during the evening. Everytime I wear it, I'm asked, "what is that lovely smelling perfume"? I have been looking...

Up Close and Personal
Summary
I love the smell of this. It is a very feminine smell and not too strong. It reminds me of a very old fashioned talcolm powder, that I can't recall at the moment. If you like strong, sweet scented perfumes, then this is not for you. This is a close up and personal perfume and I've put it up there with my Top 5.

Nourishment in a Bottle
Summary
A beautifully scented and concentrated facial oil presented in a easy to use pump dispenser. It hydrates and nourishes skin, taking away the dullness and helping fine lines disappear.

I have been unwell for a while now and was hospitalised. The hospital lights etc and medication made my skin feel dry and look dull. I was lucky enough to be given a trial bottle of The Desert Rose. It immediately began to breath new life back into...

This is great. I love the quirky brush, it's so easy to use. It made my lashes longer and it doesn't smudge. Great mascara.

On Cloud Nine
Summary
I love this product, the scent, the silky feeling and the packaging. I have coloured hair and since using this, I have noticed that my colour is not fading as much as usual. It leaves my hair, soft and silky and smelling wonderful.

Cloudberry Nurturing Shampoo
Summary
I was very lucky to be one of the members able to trial this product and I was very pleased to do so. It has a wonderful scent and the texture of the shampoo is so silky. I have short hair and I couldn't believe the little amount that was needed to wash my hair and to give a good lather. I use as little as a teaspoon each day and that is plenty enough. Since using this, my hair has felt and looked silky and shiny. I have my hair coloured, professionally, every 5 weeks and normally the colour starts to fade after a few weeks, but with this product, I'm finding that it is helping to keep the colour locked in. I would recommend this to anyone who has colour treated hair. A wonderful product that now has me hooked.

I feel nurtured.

Une Skin Glow Foundation
Summary
I wouldn't use it again. I didn't find that it did anything special. It was very bland and as I said it had a very unpleasant smell to it.
