Best Exfoliant ever.

I adore this product. I love the soap and glory range - especially the pricing aspect. Was waiting in line at Mecca and picked up a travel size of this as I was heading away soon after. Fell in love instantly - super affordable, accessible and has a great scent. This removes everything - dead skin, fake tan, dryness etc. I use this to exfoliate and remove old fake tan that I always struggle to remove and this gets it off in an instant! - brought the full size for $16 and use it daily! one of my best buys of 2017!

Tips: Use this as a fake tan remover!

I Love How Long My Eyelashes Now!

It’s finally here! The Mystery Mascara has arrived in my letterbox today! I quickly unwrapped the packaging and try this on! It has a nice, long, and slim brush, making it very easy to apply the mascara on my eyelashes. I have very short lashes so it’s not that easy to put mascara on. I had to use eyelashes curler and sometimes after a while, my eyelashes uncurled and back to the original shape. With this new Mystery Mascara, I have had it on for the whole day and it still maintains its curl. And the great thing about this is that it’s waterproof, so I don’t have to worry it would smudge and made my eyes looked like a clown.

Now I can’t wait to know what this Mystery Mascara, so I can go to get one! Love this Mystery Mascara!

Tips: Wriggling the brush while applying the mascara to eyelashes will even out and thickens the lashes. You don’t need eyelashes curler anymore!

Hmmm I'm curious too about the brand of this mascara...so lucky getting to trial out a mystery product :)

Eeee! I want to know what it is! Thanks for the review, such an exciting way to trial a product, no bias then!

I didn't see the advert asking for reviewers either! Def would have put my hand up for this one! What brand is it, can you say now??

What is this product? I'm intrigued! and WANT one!!

Hmmm very interesting. I didn't even see the advertisement for reviewers for this but wow I really look forward to finding out what brand it is!

Mysterious!

Very excited to try a 'mystery' mascara - having no expectations of brand extra gives me a really blank canvas with no pre-conceptions. That being said, it's hard to rate 'Did it do what it said it would' with such limited knowledge.

The wand is really nice, it tapers slightly at the end to allow you to get to the smaller lashes. It has plastic 'teeth' rather than a brush, which personally I prefer; it's a lit easier to avoid clumps. The whole wand 'head' has some flexibility to it, it's not fixed in a rigid position, this helps to get into those awkward areas, but also I found meant I could accidentally get mascara on my lids - so takes a but of getting used to!

The mascara formula is quite wet, and seems to take a while to dry down; I sneezed a few minutes after applying and got some mild transfer. I also found that by the end of the day I had some transfer under my lower lash line which I don't usually get with other mascaras (whether they are waterproof or not) however it has been extremely hot at the moment, so that could have affected it.

The finish is quite a natural but lengthening look; it really reminded me of They're Real by Benefit. I fond that one coat wasn't quite enough, but I was able to build up another layer or two without any problems.

If you are someone who loves a real thick and heavy mascara, this probably won't be for you, however, I personally really enjoy this kind of mascara. if I want anything more dramatic I will usually also apply lashes, but for everyday wear it really opens up my eyes.

Tips: Apply extra coats to add more drama to your lashes without it getting clumpy.

Way better shampoos around!!

It didnt do anything it said it would!! I usually like this brand as well. My hair was left feeling drier then it was in the first place . I wouldn't reccomend anyone with dry hair to use it. Also the fragrance isnt very nice . So although it says its supposed to do all these different things to your hair it actually doesn't.. I have bought cheaper shampoos then this and they have actually done a better job!!!

Was this review useful to you? Yes No

I had the same problem,my hair felt dryer too.I quite liked the fragrance though :)...I tend to avoid any shampoos/conditioners that have sulphates and other nasties in them now and just pay the extra for "non supermarket brands

Staple Mascara

So, after months and months of hearing all that from everyone about this mascara I grabbed it as soon as I entered the vault. Thank you BR!

Personally, I probably wouldn't have paid $44 to buy it, no matter what the reviews. But... It all changed after trying this.

I use this daily now, and I have since chucked my other mascaras. It's that good. I've even had a HG mascara which I'm seriously considering - oh who am I kidding, that's in the garbage too!

If you ever needed reassurance to spend $44 on a single mascara, here it is:

Does it do what it says?

Wont irritate eyes or sting = check!

Easily removable use warm water to melt and dissolve waxes = Nope. I'm having difficulty removing this, even with waterproof makeup remover...

Coats lashes evenly = check! My lashes have never looked so good! NEVER i tell you!

Flexible brush glides with the lashes and curls & enhances lashes naturally = Definitely! On their instructions it says to wiggle the brush, do it! It works!

Natural based formula wont clump or clog = mine does clump a bit when applying more than one layer, so I stick to one layer of mascara which is definitely enough!

Conditions, nourishes and strengthens lash structure to assist with lash growth = I haven't seen this yet, maybe in a couple of months' time?

Treatment that cares for your lashes = I've actually noticed less lashes falling out. Maybe it's just by chance, but it can be the mascara too.

This mascara is really amazing. It does take a little longer to dry - and I still end up smudging my lower lashes because my other mascaras dried faster, but this is definitely my new staple.

Will I repurchase? YES!! For $44? Absolutely!

Tips: Wiggle the brush from where your lashes start to achieve a longer look with just one coat.

I have been dying to try this mascara out..it is quite expensive but from all the reviews I have read on here and elsewhere it sounds like it is a true winner and worth every penny.

Oh have to try it out now.. hmm! thank you!!
