      Advantages

      • None!!!!!!!

      Disadvantages

      • "foundation is vile and greasy"
      • "sponge is cheap and nasty"
      • "packaging is cheap and nasty"

      Benefit, seriously, what were you thinking?!

      Benefit Some Kind-a Gorgeous Foundation Faker is an oil-free, cream-to-powder formula to fake foundation, evening out your skintone and making it look gorgeous. It's priced at £24.50.


      My thoughts

      I don't like the look of the packaging for this product at all. Normally Benefit has really cute packaging but this just looks naff and cheap, which is not really what you expect when you pay nearly 25 quid for a compact! It has a mirror which is fine, and a sponge also included.

      The sponge that comes with this product is DISGUSTING. It's like a tatty looking, thin bit of leftover sponge which is really no use for anything. I don't know what Benefit were thinking when they made this product I really don't, it's not up to their usual standards at all.

      The foundation feels creamy and it goes on smoothly providing I use a decent sponge instead of the one included in the compact, but it doesn't do anything positive for my skin at all. It feels really greasy when it's on and looks greasy and shiny too. It's supposed to be oil free and give the finish of a powder so I have no idea why it looks so greasy!

      I think it's fair to say the coverage this gives is close to non-existent. It doesn't conceal any blemishes or imperfections and it doesn't even my skintone at all. All it does is sit on top of my skin looking strange and greasy and feeling like it's clogging my pores really badly.

      I've never managed to keep it on my skin long enough to be able to tell you how long it stays on for, I've always washed it off in disgust at how truly terrible it looks. It does wash off easily though, thank god!


      Recommended?

      No way! This is a vile product that I really don't understand being under the Benefit brand. Nothing about it is up to the Benefit standard so I don't know what they were thinking when they released it.

      Advantages

      • "leaves scalp and hair feeling fresh initially"

      Disadvantages

      • "after a few dats makes my hair greasier more quickly than usual"

      Very disappointing product!

      Redken Scalp Relief Oil Detox Shampoo is formulated with their exclusive Interbond Scalp System and Lipa-Sponge System which delivers lipacide, micro-sponges and lemon extract to equalise the scalps PH, help control excess oil, and clarify impurities. It has an RRP of around £14, but it's currently priced at £9.90 on lookfantastic.com.

      My thoughts

      The packaging is very plain and clinical looking. It looks like I would expect a medicated shampoo like anti-dandruff shampoos to look, nothing fancy, purely functional. It has a flip top lid for convenience.

      The shampoo is quite thick in consistency and is an opaque creamy brown colour. I've never noticed a scent while I'm using it. It doesn't really lather much and has a thick creamy consistency that more rubs into the hair than lathers. It rinses out easily and leaves my hair feeling really clean and my scalp feeling very fresh.
      The first couple of times I used this I was very impressed with the results and was very hopeful that it would live up to the reviews I'd read where people had said they were able to go days longer without washing their hair. My hair felt really light and airy and my scalp felt so clean. My hair was soft and smooth, and although it felt really light it didn't have the overly 'fluffy' feel that my very fine hair usually takes on when it's made 'softer'.

      Sadly it didn't live up to the promise and within a few uses I found my hair was actually becoming greasy even quicker than usual, which is the opposite of what the shampoo is supposed to do. Not wanting to waste such an expensive product I now use it once or twice a week before my normal shampoo just to keep my scalp feeling fresher.

      Recommended?

      No, I would not recommend this shampoo as, for me, it had the opposite effect it claimed to have and actually made my more greasy more quickly.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      • "Not waterproof"
      • "No impact"
      • "Dries out very quick"

      Please step back, there's no extravagant lashes here to see...

      This is a mascara that should be of good quality and standard seeing its by a range that has proved successful from NO7. I received this as a gift on using this it didn't meet my expectations.
      The product lasted, I promise you, a couple of weeks before I noticed that the mascara started to dry out. I only used this in the mornings and don't pump air into the product as advised only twist the mascara brush, but it actually dried out on me really quick.
      The signs were there a few days before as during application the mascara was tough to apply and didn't seem to make any impact in uplift of my lashes, colour or helping to fan out my lashes at all. When the mascara first was working I only noticed a slight darkening of my lashes but no impact or drama.
      Overall I was really disappointed in this product and would not use NO7 for a choice of mascara and the mascara brush which is pick is actually too hard to use I really wouldn't say it's a brush either more like a plastic application brush.
      Sorry guys:(

      • "Customer service is disgusting"
      • "The hassle is not worth it"

      Avoid, avoid, avoid.

      After deciding to go with sharps for a fitted wardrobe I awaited the reps visit. Once a price was agreed we awaited the surveyor who's responsibility was to take down all the measurements. Then a phone call to say stuff was being delivered on a Thursday and being fitted the following Monday (yehhhh). However whilst delivery they managed to totally damage all the paint work on my stair bannisters and was unable to take two large pieces of wood upstairs and so had to be left in the living room. Due to wanting the bedroom totally emptied before delivery we were sleeping on the floor in the living room since the day before. We were informed it would take a day to complete. On the Monday the fitter came and it wasn't long before he told us the surveyor had totally cocked up the measurements (what was he doing for 45 minutes,) so larger pieces of wood and new doors had to be ordered and he had to come back on the Wednesday. Day 2. The fitter finished the cupboards at just before 10PM at night. This meant the carpet fitters had to be put back until the weekend and this meant we ended up sleeping on the floor for 10 DAYS. I Informed sharps of the problems and damage together with photos and 3 reputable painting and decorator quotations the cheapest quote £343.00. Sharps then sent a letter saying sorry about the problem, they aren't paying for the damage and they want the outstanding balance of £260. AVOID DEALING WITH SHARPS. THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN YOU JUST YOUR MONEY

      A hairdryer that will suit everyone!


      In the past few years since I was about 18 I’ve only had one hairdryer and I was perfectly happy with it, I didn’t use it much because I try not to put heat on my hair too much – as it used to be really badly damaged. Until a few months ago that is!


      GHD are a company, also known as Good Hair Day, that sell straighteners, brushes, accessories, hairdryers and curlers – all round good stuff for your hair in my opinion!


      This hairdryer is around the same shape and style as your average hairdryer, it’s just got a bit of a longer cable and is something really that gets used in salons a bit more. It’s where I first spotted it in my salon – that was when I decided I wanted one.


      This hairdryer is 2100W so it’s a fairly high powered dryer – it definitely has enough power to dry my hair a bit quicker, my old dryer was really slow and took about half an hour to dry and I’ve not even got that thick hair. This one though thanks to the power, dries my hair within fifteen minutes and dries it in a great condition. You can either have it without a nozzle on, or two different concentration nozzles on – I use the thin and wide one because it seems to dry my hair a lot faster for some reason.


      It has ionic technology which is meant to help keep frizz at bay, which for me it does as my hair is normally quite frizzy after blow drying a combination of this and Moroccan oil does the job to eliminate most of my frizz. It’s nice when I’ve dried it and if I brush it at the same time it goes quite straight as well which my old hairdryer didn’t seem to do so well, once it’s dry and straight I stick the cool blast button on and it cools it like that. Really does make my hair so much softer and feel much better than my old hairdryer. The beauty of it being GHD is it’ll last for years, even though it only comes with a one year warranty it’ll last me a lot longer!


      It’s comfortable to hold in both hands, it’s powerful and it does its job what more can you ask for!


      This hairdryer is on various websites and seems to be around the price of £99 if you don’t get it on offer. Total bargain!

      Advantages

      • "Slim packaging"
      • "Light scent"

      Disadvantages

      A perfect light scented fragrance

      This has quickly became my favourite perfume i own, i had bought this for myself as i loved the scent when i smelled it in-store. ( i would recommend smelling a perfume in-store before you buy one, as you may not like the scent of it ).
      The perfume itself smells amazing and it is not too strong as you can find that with other perfumes the scent can sometimes be to over bearing. Its a sweet/ floral smell that smells very elegant and feminine and it lasts on you all day long. I can spray this perfume on in the morning and it will still be there in the evening. The packaging of the perfume is nice and simplistic, which i personally prefer rather then crazy perfume bottles. The colour of the perfume is a light pink colour which matches the scent of the perfume. It looks great sat on my make-up table. The bottle is also very slim so it fits perfectly into your handbag, which is great as it can suck when you have to carry around huge heavy bottles of perfume. This perfume would be perfect to wear any time of the day, i personally wear the perfume throughout the day. I have nothing bad to say about this perfume i love it and i think that it makes a perfect perfume for anyone that likes sweeter/floral scents or anyone that's looking for a perfect daytime perfume. I would defiantly recommend you try/smell this perfume if your into lighter sweeter scents.

      Advantages

      • cheap
      • "makes hair feel stronger"
      • "softens and smooths"

      Disadvantages

      Strengthen your hair

      L'Oreal Triple Resist Reinforcing Conditioner is designed for fragile hair with a tendency to fall, and is formulated with arginine and protein to reinforce the hair fibre and nourish from root to tip, leaving hair feeling stronger. It costs £3.99 for a 400ml bottle, or £2.99 for a 250ml bottle.


      My thoughts
      The packaging for this conditioner is quite unusual and really stands out on the shelf, being black and pink. It's not 'pretty', but I do think it looks good. It stands 'upsidedown' on its lid and has a flip top.

      The conditoner has a medium consistency, not really runny or really thick. It's white and has a lovely fresh fruity scent.
      It's very smooth and therefore easy to massage through the hair, and I don't need to use a massive amount to cover my long hair. It rinses out easily and doesn't feel like it's leaving a coating on my hair.

      After using it my hair feels really soft and smooth and it looks healthy. I've been using it alongside the shampoo in the same range and I do feel it's made my hair feel stronger, and I also think it makes it look a little thicker which is a bonus.
      I seem to be able to go a bit longer between washes when I've used this and the matching shampoo, as my hair doesn't get greasy as quickly, despite me often using this on my roots which I shouldn't really do!


      Recommended?
      Absolutely. I would recommend using the matching shampoo along with it to really get the full benefits, but I honestly think this range does what it claims to do and makes my hair feel stronger.

      Disadvantages

      For stronger hair

      L'Oreal Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo is designed for fragile hair with a tendency to fall. It's formula is enriched with arginine and protein to reinforce the hair fibre and nourish from root to tip, leaving hair feeling stronger. It costs £3.99 for a 400ml bottle, or £2.99 for a 250ml bottle.


      My thoughts
      I like the packaging of this shampoo, the black and pink design really stands out from the other shampoo bottles. It has a flip top lid for ease of use.

      The shampoo is neither thick nor thin in consistency, it's just the perfect consistency to come easily from the bottle but not slip through the fingers. It has a lovely fresh fruity scent and it massages into a lovely rich lather which then rinses out easily. It doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy or coated with product.
      After use my hair feels lovely and soft and smooth, and it isn't static or flyaway like it can be usually. I have fine hair with some damage from bleaching, and this makes it feel a little fuller and definitely stronger. I also find my hair doesn't get greasy as quickly after using this so I am able to go longer between washes.

      After using this shampoo, along with the matching conditioner, for a while I definitely feel like my hair is stronger than it was, and the damage from bleaching it isn't as noticeable. My hair is looking healthier and has a more obvious shine to it, and I do feel it's falling less than it used to, and I notice less hair on my hairbrush after use.
      Recommended?

      Yes, I would absolutely recommend this shampoo and the matching conditioner also. I feel it has done more for my fine, fragile hair than the many other, much more expensive products I've tried.

      Advantages

      • "good packaging"
      • "great cleanser"
      • "leaves skin super smooth"

      Disadvantages

      • "not the most effective exfoliator"

      An excellent cleanser

      Philosophy The Microdelivery Daily Exfoliator Wash is a mild, exfoliating facial cleanser designed to effectively cleanse the skin while providing resurfacing benefits. It's priced at £22 for a 240ml bottle, however I purchased mine in a £49 set that contained massive 946ml bottles of this and their Purity facial cleanser, which meant I actually paid just under £25 for 946ml which is much better value!


      My thoughts

      The packaging is quite plain and unassuming, fairly clinical looking in it's simplicity. Mine has a press top dispenser which makes it much easier to use and control how much you get out.

      The wash is very runny and has a gritty texture to it. It doesn't have big grains like a lot of exfoliators, just that slight gritty feeling. It doesn't really have much of a scent to it, it just smells quite natural and inoffensive.

      It lathers a little as I massage it in, and I can feel the gritty texture getting into my pores, so it feels like it is effective as an exfoliator even though the grains aren't as noticeable as with others.

      After using this my skin feels really smooth without feeling stripped of all it's oil and moisture. It doesn't feel dry or tight, it's just smooth, smooth, smooth.

      Sadly I do seem to have been getting more clogged pores since I switched to this from my usual cleanser/exfoliator combo, so it seems it isn't that great at controlling oil or clearing out the pores, so I still need to use a grainy exfoliator a couple of times a week to deal with those issues. However, if I just think of this as a cleanser rather than an exfoliator then it does an amazing job so I'm happy to continue using it.


      Recommended?

      Yes, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good cleanser which will leave their skin super smooth to boot.

      Disadvantages

      What a treat this is.

      This is a product that sits apart in my opinion from Elemis's other products.
      I love the scent of all their ranges it really adds to the SPA feel at home, calm and restorative feel of the oils, as it infuses in the air and your skin.

      This is a very exotic scent compared to the others which are calming and relaxing.
      Combining the Tahitian Monoi oil and frangipani flower to create a really uplifting and inspiring scent to get you started on your day ahead the scent lingers for a long time throughout the day.
      You really only need a small amount of this product because it lathers up so well and rinses off to leave supple and smooth skin. A truly indulgent treat.
      To feel the full benefit of this range, there are other products to complement it such as body creams and oil that I would recommend to get the most out of this range.

      Elemis can't go wrong x

      Another wonder. Another £95 from your wallet. But if you've earned it this is worth it, honestly I would not lie.

      The aims is to plump up your skin, help it look brighter and hydrated which is fantastic during these winter months.

      The main ingredient focuses on the anti aging PAVINA PAVONICA, but with this product it is activated with Calcium to support the cell structure as it ages.
      This great for all ages [I'm 30 but want to start now] but mainly for older mature skin.
      This is advisable to use with other products within this procollagen range for maximum effectiveness. Massage in before you go to bed, it really sinks in well and doesn't sit on your skin or feel greasy.
      It also smells heavenly. x

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous

      This product has won award after award and after trying it myself I can see why.

      This is a cleaning balm with an so many aims and benefits its hard to know where to start. Basically, it aims to cleanse and remove the daily grime that builds up in your pores.
      First the major draw for me is this is a 100% plant based product. It combines the following to achieve the cleansing:
      STARFLOWER
      ELDERBERRY
      OPTIMEGA OILS
      WAXES- ROSE/MIMOSA
      ANTI AGING -PADINA PAVONICA

      Combine these cleanse, nourish and smoothe your skin leaving it looking glowing and radiant.
      I can honestly say this was incredible, after the second treatment I felt refreshed and my skin looked calm and healthy.
      They suggest a tip on the website which I would highly recommend- To double up and use as a mask.
      Apply a generous amount to your face and neck, massage into your skin to loosen up the balm. Leave on for 10 minutes, place a warm damp cloth over your face during this time and then wash off with warm water.
      This leaves your skin absolutely amazing!

      My skin felt so soft and you really only need to do the mask once a week but use the balm as a remover using either a cloth of cotton wipes morning and evening this works as an individual product of with a trio beauty regime -Elemis Toner and Procollagen marine cream.
      This is worth £39.50 and worth every single penny.

      nice watch!

      I'm quite а wаtch fаncier, hаving аbout 20 wаtches of аll different kinds, movements аnd brаnds. Severаl high end wаtches included, like Breitlings аnd Rolexes. I bought this wаtch аs I wаs curious аs to whаt the price would bring. Honestlу, I didn't expect much аnd wаs verу pleаsаntlу surprised. This is а quаlitу piece. The cаse аnd bаnd аre beefу, with no skimping on metаl here. Аll stаinless steel with the middle bаnd links polished to а high finish, with the surrounding link pieces аlso polished but а little less so, letting the bаnd show verу nicelу without being ornаte. Pаckаging is superb. The wаtch is encаsed in soft plаstic to protect it, there is а messаge from skagen on the cover аnd аdequаte instructions. Verу nicelу done, skagen.
      Аbout the bаnd. I hаve а rаther lаrge wrist аnd usuаllу need аn extrа link or two. I hаd to remove а link on the wаtch аnd move up the clаsp pins two notches to properlу fit mу 7 3/4 inch; wrist. If уou trу to to size it уourself, уou must hаve а wаtch tool kit (I got mine on Аmаzon, of course) аnd be cаreful to punch out the pins in the direction of the аrrows embossed on the inside of the links thаt аre removаble. Note аlso thаt the heаd of the link pin is slightlу lаrger thаn the end of the pin аnd needs to be reinserted lаst from the sаme side of the link it cаme out of. Bу the wау, the clаsp is of the squeeze the end sides tуpe -- mу fаvorite аs it is verу secure. Аnd, the literаture doesn't mention this, but the crown screws down.
      Indeed, I аm verу impressed with the vаlue of this wаtch (even а Swiss quаrtz movement!) аnd hаve no ideа how Аmаzon аnd Stuhrling cаn offer such а quаlitу time piece аt аn excellent price! Аnd а two-уeаr wаrrаntу!! Enjoу. This is а definite buу.
