I am a huge fan of all Sally Hansen products as they all just seem to leave my nails looking and feeling wonderful! While I have always tried to take care of my nails, I have never really looked after my cuticles so after coming across this in my local Boots I decided to give it a try! I love the fact that it contains apricot extract as it gave the cream a very nice smell! All you have to do is get a little bit of the cream, dab it on to your cuticles and massage it in, which is so easy and quick to do, yet produces great results! After only using it for a week I noticed that my cuticles were a lot softer and overall, looked much better, with even my freinds commenting that it looked like I had, had a manicure! The pot is quite small especially for it's price of around £3 but as you only need to use a little bit, it does last a very long time! The good thing about it being small is that I can pop it into my handbag and take it around with me during the day, so if I my cuticles ever need some TLC during the day I can just whip this cream out! It really did work for me, and left my cuticles much softer and healthier looking so I will definitely be purchasing this product again!
I like keeping my nails long, however my nails are quite weak and break easily so I love to use Cutex nail removers as they really help to nourish and protect my nails. Since using this product I have found that my nails are looking much more healthy and are a lot stronger!! This has helped me maintain the long nails that I have always wanted! It is also the best nail polish remover that I have ever used, as I do not need to use a lot of the product to remove my nail polish, even with very dark colours. It completely removes the polish from my nails without leaving any stains behind, and it has a lovely smell which is very unusual for a nail polish remover, but welcomed by me as I hate the alcoholic smell of most standard nail polish removers. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who's nails need a bit of nourishment and TLC!
If you spend all day on your feet then this is the product for you! After a long day theres nothing I love more than to just come home and unwind with this. It is so relaxing and really makes my feet feel re-energized. The combination of heat and massage is amazing and not only relaxes my feet but also my mind. It is so easy to use, and the best thing is that if your really busy you can do something whilst your using this, like watch TV, go on the computer, read a book or report, etc. It can also be stored very easily in a cupboard or under a bed or something so it is out of the way for when you dont need it, yet easy to get to when you do. I love the massaging options as they really do massage the soles of my feet so well! Having recieved this as a birthday present I was at first sceptical but I am not a converter, and have also managed to convert my family as well, who love it just as much as I do! The only downside is that sometimes the water tends to splash out so just make sure you put a towel or cloth under and around the foot spa before use.
I have always suffered from dry skin on my feet and have always been so embarrassed when it came to the summer and I had to expose them! No matter what product I tried I could never seem to shift the dry skin! I slathered on hundreds of different types of moisturiser every night to no avail! When this product first came out I was slightly apprehensive about using it especially as it was from JML, and I am not a fan of their advertising. However, I decided to give the product a go and was relatively surprised at how well it worked! I loved the fact that it came in an egg shape as it made me very easy to hold and therefore to use. It also meant that it didn't take up much room in my bathroom cabinets, and that when I went on holiday and took it along it didnt look too weird or embarrassing! It really did do wonders to my feet and I saw results after only 3 days of use. This product is a lifesaver and when I went on holiday this summer I didnt feel self conscious about stepping out in sandals for the first time in years! I use this just before I go in the shower and while your using it you might think that it is not working or that it is making it worse, but just carry on and then once you get out just use a little bit of moisturiser and you should start to see results very soon! The only downside is that the egg got stuck and I couldnt remove the top bit to empty out all the dead skin so I am not looking forward to the time when it finally opens!!
The great thing about this skirt is that it is so cheap at only £3.99 and comes in a huge range of colours and patterns. It is is extremely versatile and can literally be worn with anything! You can glam it up for a night out with heels or pair it with flats for a casual day out, or even wear it at work/school. The material of this skirt is extremely comfortable so sometimes I just wear it to lounge around the house! It is not too short but you can pull it up or down to suit your body shape and to adjust the length. The only downside is that sometimes the skirt kind of loosens up especially at the back where the bottom of the skirt will sometimes stick out instead of clinging to you like it should. However, as it was so cheap and has lasted me for around 2 years, this isn't very surprising so I would definitely recommend this to anyway. I have it in a couple of colours and patterns but the black one is definitely my favourite one as it is such a wardrobe staple and basic! Also, although it is a bodycon and clings to your figure, it is not just for slim girls, as you can wear a baggy top over it if you are self conscious of your stomach. I sometimes bear it with a striped baggy top that I also got from H&M, and stil end up looking quite stylish!
I was really excited about using this product due to the rave reviews that I had read on this site and on others, however, I was left very disappointed with it! The worst thing was I decided to try it out at a family wedding and was left mortified when the pictures came up showing the sweat patches on my dress!! I have used other deodorants such as Sure which keeps me sweat-free for several hours, but I decided to try this due to the fresh and clean smell that is often associated with Dove products. My arm was also twisted by the various Dove adverts on TV at the moment. While it did leave my underarms soft and smooth and smelt lovely, it didnt do its job of being an anti-perspirant properly! The only other advantage that I can think of is that it was quite cheap and as it small you can take it around with you in your handbag. However, I will be sticking to the Sure range next time, and wouldn't recommend this to anyone who is worried about sweating and sweat patches!
Having recently dyed my hair a light honey blonde colour I was worried about how my colour would survive over my summer holidays due to the sun, sea, sand and chlorine from the swimming pools. However, I was very pleased with this product, which I used in conjuction with the matching conditioner as I found both of them together in a multipack in Savers for a very cheap £4. The bottles were very large at 900ml and are only still at the halfway point after 2 months!! They were very good value for money and I would recommend these over the much higher similar products on the market from brands like John Frieda, etc. This helped to prevent my hair colour from going dull and kept it shiny and soft all summer long! I would urge anyway who has blonde hair to buy these products, especially if your hair is not naturally blonde, as we all know that dying your hair takes its toll on it which can lead to it being very damaged and dry, and when you add the summer months into the picture, it can get even worse. So, this product is a life saver, as it doesnt let your colour fade, and keeps your hair very healthy. My long and thick hair was left looking very shiny and full of life! I will definitely buy these products again as they have taken a big weight off my shoulders, as before I dyed my hair I was so worried that my hair would be left damaged, dry and frizzy but this product has made sure that it hasn't!!
When I was younger I used to have dark honey/golden hair but as I got older it seemed to get darker until it got to a light brown colour. The annoying thing about my hair colour is that you cant say I am a blonde but you cannot say that I am a brunette either, and this has caused multiple debates between my family and friends! Even though I my hair was light brown I still had some natural dark blonde highlights in it, so I desperately wanted to enhance these and try to lighten my colour slightly. I wasn't keen on dying my hair so I decided to try this shampoo, but I was very realistic about it and knew that it wouldn't make my hair a bright blonde colour. I was happy with this shampoo as it did do what it said, and it managed to enhance my natural highlights and stop my hair colour from looking dull. My hair did lighten slightly and it was definitely more blonde-looking but if you really want to go blonde I would just suggest dying it or putting blonde highlights in it, as this product will only produce very subtle results. I also think that this would only work if you have natural blondish highlights in your hair as it only accentuated my highlights really! Overall, I would not buy this product again as it was quite expensive especially as you have to use the conditioner with it. Although it did provide some results, they were very subtle and so I do not feel that this product is worth it for it's price.
Having recieved this product in my early teens as a birthday present I have now had it for years and it is still in full working condition! It is the only curler that seems to work for my hair and makes my curls last, as with other curlers from top brands my curls only seem to stay for a maximum of 2 hours! Even without hairspray this keeps my curls intact and looking full of bounce for at least 5 hours! It is also very easy to use and is very cheap compared to other curlers on the market. I have very thick and long hair and my hair is so straight so if this works for me I'm guessing it would work for anyone! Everyone comments that my hair is very straight so I do have a lot of difficulties even trying to get my hair slightly wavey. Even plaiting my hair and sleeping with it all night or scrunching my hair with a curling mousse still leaves my hair straight, so I was very surprised and happy that this worked on my hair. I would definitely recommend this as it has lasted me for so many years! I have tried curlers from other brands such as Babyliss, Remington, Tresemme, etc, but this is the only one that works for me! The only downside is that it looks a bit too childish and girly for me now, but as long as it leaves me with beautiful curls I don't really mind!
I have been using this product for the past 3 years and I am in love with it! I dont wash my hair everyday as this is damaging to your hair as you end up stripping your hair of its natural oils and nutrients, so this product is a lifesaver for me as my hair gets greasy quite easily. I used to wash my hair every other day but thanks to this product I can go without washing my hair for 3 to 4 days which has exactly improved the condition of my hair. It is now softer and healthier as I wash it less often and find that I do not need to style my hair as much as this product gives my hair lots of volume and bounce so I can just leave it down or I can put it up into an updo. The best thing is that this product is so quick and easy to use, and your hair actually looks clean and washed so none of my friends have noticed it, and have even commented that 'I am lucky because I do not have greasy hair', which is a massive compliment!! I have tried all of the varieties but I always go back to the original because it has a very clean and fresh scent, and I feel that the other varieties scents are too strong and too tell-tale. I have recommended this to all of my friends and now my best friends, sister and cousins are also addicted to this product. I actually could not live without it! It's always present in my house! It is also very cheap as it does last a long time as I just spray some into my roots as this is the only place where oil will gather. After spraying directly into my roots I then just rub it in and mess my hair around which leaves it very big and volumised, and then you can use a brush to distribute it evenly. At this stage just make sure that you brush away any grey spots as this product sprays on like white/grey powder and if you do not rub it in properly you are sometimes left with small grey patches in your hair so beware of this! I get this product for only £1.50 in my local savers as this is the cheapest place to buy it, but it is also available in Boots and other chemists or supermarkets. Would definitely recommend you to try this as it definitely works and is one of the cheapest on the market!
Having tried possibly every concealer out there, this is definitely the best one I have come across and for its price it is amazing! As I suffer from combination skin - oily and dry, and from breakouts, this product was perfect for me. I have found that liquid concealers often clog my pores and result in breakouts, but stick concealers are far too drying on my skin and hard to blend in, so this was the perfect product, as it fits in between both. It comes in a tube form but glides on really smoothly and feels almost like a cream. It provides great coverage and can be worn with just pressed powder on top for a light and natural day time look. The added benefit is that the green centre is medicated and so helps to prevent and treat blemishes which is great as it actually does this. It really improved my skin condition as it left it smooth and not dry, and it reduced the amount of blemishes that I would get, so I only breakout very rarely now. I have been using this concealer for 6 months now and since then I have not got one blemish which has been a real confidence booster!
Seeing as I suffer from oily skin this was an obvious option for me especially as it was so cheap at around £4 in Boots. I was worried that this would overdry my skin as sometimes some make-up and products have left my skin dry and flaky but I was really happy when I saw that this didnt. I apply it on over my foundation to help it set and to make sure that my skin stays matte, and this really does the job. I only apply it once in the morning and it lasts all day long, leaving my skin smooth and shine-free for the rest of the day. It also really helps my foundation stay put all day long and it means that I dont have to reapply my make-up during the rest of the day. However, you can also reapply half-way through the day for added protection against shine. During the summer, I just wear it on top of my concealer and I love the fact that it is very light on my skin and doesn't clog my pores, yet still provides coverage. The product also lasts for ages as I have had mine for around 2 months and it still looks full. I would definitely recommend this to people with oily or combination skin as it is great value for money!
I started using this long before the current TV adverts came out which are promising quick results. I found that this didnt work on my skin at all, and was simply a waste of money. At nearly £9 this was one of the most expensive on the market at the time so I was really annoyed when it did nothing to help my skin, especially as I had also bought the gel too. I saw no improvement in my acne or my blackheads, and so would not recommend this to anyone. Instead, I would recommend buying benzoyl peroxide which you can buy over the counter or get at your chemist in the form of PanOxyl. This was recommended to me by my GP and has completely cleared up my skin, apart from the acne scars that are leftover. The PanOxyl cream is also much cheaper than this and last for a very long time as it lasts me around 3-4 months so it is very good value for money.
A friend of mine gave this to me and I have been using it like crazy this summer. However, I did not realise it was a lip plumping and collagen conditioner, I just thought it was a normal lipstick. I am a young woman so would not have bought this if I had known as I do not need to 'restore a youthful looking appearance' just yet! During the time I used it I did not notice any tingling sensation in my lips as is normal for a lip plumper and I did not notice any difference in my lips. It did not plump them at all but it did keep them really soft and moisturised. I rushed to take this off my friend as I have been looking for the perfect nude shade but have never been able to find it, but this is perfect! It is not too brown yet not too pink either, just the perfect shade in between! I would definitely recommend this if you want a good nude shade! I will keep using this as just a normal lipstick even though it isn't, however it is quite expensive at £9.
This concealer comes in standard packaging - a lip stick style tube which you have to simply twist upwards to access the concealer. As I use to suffer from acne I have some scarring left on my cheeks so I decided to purchase this concealer in both the medium shade and the green shade, as the green shade is good for hiding redness. I wasn't expecting miracles due to the relatively cheap price, however I was extremely disappointed with these product and would not recommend it to people who have combination skin. Although my skin mostly oily it is also sometimes slightly dry but I found that this product really dried my skin out and made it really flaky. I couldn't wear this alone as my skin looked very dry and would flake when touched or rubbed so I had to apply foundation on top, and this sometimes accentuated the dryness even more, especially as I had to rub my dry skin even more. I also found that the concealer was very hard to blend in as it comes out like a big clump and then is hard to smooth down. Sometimes I would end up looking quite orange around the sides of my face if I applied the medium shade as it was so hard to rub in completely. The green shade did not actually hide any of my redness and as it is a very light shade and that this particular concealer is very hard to blend I was often left looking very pale or with a greenish tint that left my family asking me what was wrong with my face. So if you have dry skin or combination skin then I would definitely not recommend this. If you have normal skin and use quite a rich moisturiser and rich foundation then maybe this would suit you, as this concealer is very drying and so you would need to make sure you balance the moisture levels of your face. However, as I have oily skin I have to use oil-free moisturiser and oil-free foundation so I found that my face was just left permanently dry. The product also claims that it is medicated to help prevent and treat blemishes but I found that this actually made me breakout, as I have not had a spot in more than 6 months. I also found that the actual concealer looked very dirty and unhygienic after a while and that I often had to dry and rub the top of the concealer before applying it to my skin. Overall, I would recommend a liquid concealer instead as I have thrown this away after only having used it for around 2 weeks, but it is still very full so the only advantage is that it would probably last a very long time.
