Not that great

I was expecting good things from this as it is from o.p.i but was very disappointed with it. It didn't go on that smoothly and didn't look good at all. I have tried other brands which are cheaper and worked much better.

Dove Go Fresh Nourishing Body Wash

I am an absolute sucker for anything cucumber and green tea fragrance. I just love the freshness and the way it leaves you feeling crisp and fresh and clean.

It lathers nicely and moisturisers really well. It is also great that you can buy this at the supermarket and sometimes you can pick it up on special.

Stefan Eco Coco Tan Review

Brilliance personified

I am an absolute fan of Sugar Babe sun tanning oils, lotions and potions, so was perhaps even a little biased or sceptical that anything else would be a match - what a surprise. The packaging is very simple and perhaps a little 'cheap' looking. (The white bottle does tend to get smudgy marks on it so it not the best packaging). The pump action is handy when applying and the white cream lotion is non descript but smooth and applies evenly. That is where it stops and a whole new beginning starts. I was DELIGHTED to discover there is not the normal smell of self tan, but instead a very soft and subtle fragrance of coco nut which fades fairly quickly. After just one application I noticed a remarkable difference in colour and the best part of it was that there was no orange - but BROWN. The same day a friend remarked on how tanned I was!! I reapplied two days later and it is not obvious that you have used self tan but offers instead a natural tanned appearance. I washed my hands after each application and was pleased to say there were no traces at all of having applies self tan. I am absolutely sold on the product and I think this has now become my 'tanning lotion' of choice.

Tips: Apply after showering as the skin is moist and it applies more evenly.

Thanks for the great review, I really can't wait to try this product

Sounds like s great product. Nice to know hasn't got the "yup, you are wearing fake tan" scent :-)

Tui Balms Coconut & Aloe Massage & Body Butter Review

Tui Balms Coconut and Aloe Vera

I am always wrapped when I get selected for a trial team, and I am always appreciate the opportunity to try a new product.

This wee pot arrived t work and it is always exciting for us all!.

This massage and body butter comes in a little 50g pot. I undid the lid hoping for a gorgeous scent of coconut, but unfortunately I go nothing. I was really disappointed in the scent, well, actually there was no scent to speak of.

The butter itself was a nice consistency, easy to spread over your body. I did think it was too oily for me to use as a moisturiser.

I used this on my feet as they had been a bit neglected and were a bit on the dry side. I massaged it into my feet before I went to bed and then I put socks on. In the morning my feet were noticeably smoother and softer. I did this for a week and am very happy with the result.

I would have preferred this in a tube as my nails dug into the balm every time I got some out.

I do love the companies philosophy of all profits going to registered charities. Such a noble cause.

Tips: A little goes a long way, be careful as this can be quite oily, rub in very well.

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream - Anti Ageing

One of the best bb creams ive used.

Hi Ladies and Gents! Garnier BB cream where do I start? well I started using this over a year ago and I have to say its one the best products Ive tried on my skin. Me being a natural skeptic I initially didnt think much of it as I dont really use garnier products minus their awesome shampoo and conditioner. So I took this little gem home hoping for the best and I was so surprised at how lightweight and creamy it was on my face. I didnt have any adverse reactions or redness after using it. That was one of my fears as I have super sensitive skin but this stuff is magic. My partner noticed the chnage to my skin straight away saying it almost glowed and looked really flawless on. I also love the face that it doesnt look overly heavy like liquid foundation and the shades to choose from have great colour and easily blended. The price of the product even now is inexpensive and your definitely buying something worth while. Hopefully you guys like my first review :) highly recommend this BB Cream great work Garnier :)

Tips: Choose the right shade for you, and I would recommend using moisturizer before applying this BB cream as it will last longer on the skin :)

All in all, it's a great basic lip balm!

This is a wonderful lip balm! It's super moisturising, neutral and a great lipstick base. It goes on fairly clear and leaves your lips moisturised for a long time after applying. I love the fact that it's a stick/tube applicator as they are less messy and easy to use. It has a sort of light peppermint-like scent.

Loving this since forever

I have been using this lip balm for about 3 years or so and I can't stress enough about how amazing it is for your lips and it is made from natural ingredients which is really good.

I love the minty flavour on my lips from this product and also how it isn't expensive. And also is one of the few lip balms that I have actually finished and then repurchased because I hardly ever finish lip balms as I always get new ones sent to me.

Avene Cleanance Gel soapless cleanser Review

Favourite cleanser

I love this cleanser and have been using it for years! I use this after my make-up remover and it works really well to clean my face without any dryness or discomfort. I have quite a few acne scars and the occasional pimples and I find that this works nicely to remove the oil without over drying my skin since it doesn't foam up a lot. This range from avene is especially targeted for acne/blemish prone skin and it does exactly that, plus it would work great for sensitive skin as it's so gentle.

Tips: Only a small pea-sized amount needed each time and one bottle lasts me well over 6 months.

definitely my favourite aswell

Too drying for me

If you have sensitive skin, this is not for you! I bought this as a poor student thinking it would be a good, cheap toner. As soon as you open the bottle, it reeks of alcohol! It dried my skin out far too much and was very stingy around the eye area. I usually try to stick it out with my products but I definitely couldn't with this! I gave it to my flatmate who for some reason loves super harsh toners. It may have been more suitable if I had acne prone skin but my skin is fairly normal so definitely wasn't for me!

Yup i had the same experience, definitely wont be buying again
