Kiehl's Gentle Exfoliating Lavender Body Scrub 11/04/2017

Lovely lavender scent

Kiehl's Gentle Exfoliating Lavender Body Scrub Kiehl's Gentle Exfoliating Lavender Body Scrub About Kiehl's Kiehl's is an American cosmetic brand founded in 1851 and it started as a homeopatic pharmacy and gradually became bigger. It was bought by Loreal in 2000. According to Feelunique: Kiehl's rich heritage incorporates a blend of cosmetic, herbal, and medicinal knowledge developed and woven into high-quality and cutting-edge products, including the acclaimed Crème de Corps body moisturiser and Midnight Recovery Concentrate This is the first time I am trying something from Kiehl's I got a sample of this scrub at an event at work on Valentines day. It came in a cute 15 ml tub, but normally it comes in a 250 ml tub and costs £32. I also got a sample of face cream (I will write a review later). Product Description It has a nice and gentle creamy texture and tiny brown exfoliation particles, what according to the ingredients list I think is apricot seed powder. It is slightly greyish in colour. There is a long list of ingredients. I have no idea what half of them mean but I can see many good oils among them like coriander oil, avocado oil, aloe vera extract, sunflower oil, wheat germ oil. According to the producer it is rich and indulgent body scrub. It exfoliates and gently removes dead surface skin cells without drying the skin. The scrub is formulated with natural, microbead-free exfoliation particles and skin-enriching emollients that help smoothen the skin. It leaves skin silky soft, velvety smooth, and ...

Pantene Pro V Daily Moisture Renewal Conditioner 26/03/2017

Another amazing bargain

Pantene Pro V Daily Moisture Renewal Conditioner Pantene Pro V Daily Moisture Renewal Conditioner I really like Pantene products and I am very lucky because I always get them from my local one pound shop. There are many different types of Pantene products available. As you may guess I paid just £1 for this product. Normally it costs over £3 in stores like Boots, Tesco, Asda etc. Product Description This product comes in 335 ml bottle with Pantene logo on it. It is designed for dry and damaged hair. It provides intense all day moisture and protects hair against future breakage. It leaves hair soft and manageable. Suitable for all hair types and designed especially for the hair that need some extra moisturising and care. It is suitable for every day use. It smells amazing (like every other Pantene product I have used). It smells clean and fresh and very classy. It is white in colour and very thick in texture. Using the product It is recommended to use this product together with the shampoo from the same range, but in my opinion it really doesn't matter what type of shampoo you want to use. I personally mix brands very often and it works for me. To use this product you first need to shampoo your hair (with your preferred shampoo) and the you need rinse your hair thoroughly. Apply the conditioner on damp and clean hair gently massaging and distributing the product from mid-lengths to ends. I normally use at least 2 handfuls of the product but only because I have long and thick hair and I also like to be generous ...

Good product

Boots No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream Dry / Very Dry Boots No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream Dry/Very Dry Skin Price and availability I bought this BB cram in Boots for £13.50. There was an offer 3 for 2 on No7 products and it was a good opportunity to stock up my make up bag. I also purchased skin illuminator and I got a concealer for free. They also gave me some nice samples of cream cleanser and gel cleanser. There are 3 types available in this range: normal/oily skin; normal/dry skin and dry/very dry skin.

Wella Vosene Original Anti Dandruff Shampoo 30/01/2017

Does it smell good? Not very much...

Wella Vosene Original Anti Dandruff Shampoo Vosene Medicated Anti-Dandruff Shampoo I picked this up in Poundland recently as I experienced some episodes of dandruff last month. Anyway the regular price for this product is £2 and it is available in 2 scents: the green one - it is a very odd, medicated smell and the blue one is a ''mild'' formula and smells much better. Product description This shampoo comes in a dark green bottle with Vosene logo on it. It is designed to prevent dandruff and maintain healthy scalp and hair. This product contains Salicylic Acid - ingredient which is highly effective to prevent dandruff. This shampoo is mild enough for everyday use and it is suitable for all hair types. Using the product The scent: this product has a very strange scent to it. I first sniffed it at the store and it seemed quite ok for me- smelled like some sort of herbal infusion, but I could feel some eucalyptus in it as well so didn't seem that off putting. When I was using it for the first time I noticed that it smelled like herbs and medicines. That medicine smell was more prominent when I was washing my hair, but do not get me wrong, the smell is not overpowering and once your hair is dry it is gone. The hair smells clean (with a herbal twist to it ) This is a medicated shampoo after all and I actually knew what I was buying, but I believe for some people it might be a bit off putting, especially because there are much nicer smelling anti-dandruff shampoos out there. If you are on a budget and looking for ...

Loreal L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil Facial Oil 22/01/2017

Perfect for my dry skin

Loreal L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil Facial Oil L'Oreal Extraordinary Facial Oil I got this product recently in Boots as it was on offer. It was quite expensive, but I decided to give it a go as I really liked the ingredients and I was actually looking for a good facial oil. I had seen the good reviews online before too and I was very curious to try it myself. The full price of this product is £ 19.99 I got it for £ 13.33 on offer. Product description So what is so extraordinary about this oil? It is designed to nourish and soften the skin with non-greasy touch. This oil is perfect for everyday use. It can be used alone or together with a moisturiser. It should be applied to a clean face and neck. You can use it in the evening or in the morning, or both.The main function of this oil is hydration.

The packaging: The oil comes in a sturdy, thick 30 ml glass bottle with a pipette. The pipette itself is made of plastic (thanks for that). I find it easy to use. I just apply few drops on my hands and then I gently massage into my skin. My thoughts: Definitely money well spent. As I have mentioned above this oil can be used alone or under the moisturiser. As I do not use any creams on my face, I use this oil ...

Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser 14/01/2017

So far so good

Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser I had heard good things about the brand and this time I decided to try the product myself. I suffer from very dry facial skin in winter and I have to be very careful of what I use. I was browsing Boots store for a while and then the Boots lady recommended me trying this facial cleanser. By the way I also bought a nice cleansing brush as my skin became a bit flaky on my cheeks, but I will post a review on that one later. This joy costed me £7.95, but it is a natural product and suitable for dry skin and contains no chemicals. Product description Sukin is Australian natural skincare brand. www.sukinorganics.com This cleanser comes in a 125ml plastic bottle with a pump. It is sulphate and paraben free. It doesn't contain any synthetic fragrances, animal derivatives, artificial colours, harsh detergents, SLS etc. It is 100% vegan, carbon neutral and not tested on animals. The product is suitable for all skin types, but the most important is that it is gentle and non drying product. Ingredients: Water, Aloe Leaf Juice, Betaine, Decyl Glucoside, Chamomile Flower Extract,Witch Hazel Extract, Macadamia Seed Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Tangerine Peel Oil, Orange Peel Oil, Lavender Oil, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Limonene, Linalool. The ingredients in my opinion are really good and so is the feel of this product. Using the product The cleanser has a gel like texture and it is transparent. ...

Alberto Balsam Herbal Conditioner Sun Kissed Raspberry 15/12/2016

Smells nice and works well

Alberto Balsam Herbal Conditioner Sun Kissed Raspberry Alberto Balsam Herbal Conditioner Sun Kissed Raspberry I really like Alberto Balsam products. They are really cheap and do the job. You can get this conditioner in many supermarkets and it costs only 1 pound. Sometimes it is available on offer for even less like 90 p. There are more scents available in the range : apple, coconut and lyche, blueberry, pomegranate, mandarin etc. Product description It comes in a tall plastic bottle with Alberto balsam logo and raspberries. The conditioner is light pink in colour and creamy in texture. The scent it s very fruity. I wouldn't say that it smells exactly like raspberries, but it is definitely berry/fruity scent. It is designed for normal /dry and damaged hair and it revives and makes hair shiny and manageable. It revitalises and improves shine and softness. It is infused with juniper and chamomile extracts and it contains pro-vitamin B5. It comes in a 350 ml bottle and therefore it also lasts long and it is a good economic solution. Using the products The product is very easy to use. It is recommended to use it with the shampoo from the same range, but it does not really mater what shampoo you use before. So to use it you need to apply it on a clean damp hair from mid lengths to ends and keep for like 3 minutes. As I have mentioned many times I like to keep conditioner in my hair for longer time like 10 minutes and then I rinse it out. It makes hair very smooth and manageable. It also detangles hair and and makes it smell ...

Nivea Lip Care Pearly Shine 26/11/2016

It's ok but not very moisturising

Nivea Lip Care Pearly Shine Nivea Lip Care pearly Shine I got this lip balm on offer from Tescos and it was on offer for £1. My friend actually had told me that it was really good so I bought it. I have tried some Nivea lip balms before and I quite liked them. Product description It is infused with pearl and silk extracts and it combines pearl shine and nourishing properties. It promises to leave your lips velvety and soft. It also contains SPF 10 and protect lips and gives them natural pearly shine. It comes as a chap stick and it is pearly pink in colour. It also contains riccinus oil and almond oil. My thoughts I am not a huge fan of this lip balm to be honest. I expected a lot more from such a trusted brand as Nivea, but it is what it is. I love the pearly shine and the beautiful shade of this lip balm but it is too drying for my lips unfortunately. I have tried many times to apply it on moisturised lips and if I am wearing this balm my lips are just becoming dry. They do not becomet chapped but they just feel dry and not nice at all. I have tried other lip balms in the range and I loved them, but this one is actually not too good. However, I cannot say that I would not recommend this product because it might be working for some, as my friend for example she loves it and it does the job for her. I can honestly say that I do not have very dry lips in general and I get along with most of lip balms but this one is not working for me. I have given it 2 stars because it is ok if I just put it ...
