      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      My favourite scent in a foot cream.

      INTRO:
      My favourite scent is lavender and i also have a lot of feet problems. No matter what type of shoe i wear my feet will always ache and feel abit rough if i don't look after them religiously so it's only natural that i would have every lavender foot and cream product from avon.

      ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
      The product comes in a 75 ml rubbery plastic tube for around £3 but you can also get deals and special gift packs for a real treat you can also get them on ebay but the prices seem to be pretty high. It has avons logo on it at the top and then the product name
      "Lavender comfort exfoliating clay mask" "Masque exfoliant a l'argile senteur lavande" incase anyone gets confused some prodcuts look so alike you sometimes unknowingly buy the wrong product. The tube itself is white with blue and lilac onit. on the back of the product it says whats the purpose of the product is and how to use it. 'comforts and rejuvinates, making dry rough skin feel softer then ever. To use: smooth over legs and feet allow to dry then rinse. there is abit a down fall the print is pretty small i have to lean in close to read it even when i have my glasses on. Also even though it's common knowlegde i can't seem to find any warning about avoiding contact with eyes or mouth or keep out of reach of children with is something to think about.

      The ingrediants are - i apologize for any spelling mistakes i'm reading them off my own product.
      AQUA, WATER/EAU, KAOLIN STEARIC, ACID GLYCERIN BENTONITE, POLYETHYLENE CREATINE ZEA MAYS (CORN), KERNEL EXTRACT, MELALEUCA, ALTERNIFOLIA, (TEA TREE) EXTRACT, LAVANDULA, ANGUSTIFOLIA (LAVENDER,) EXTRACT PARFUM/FRAGRANCE, DISODIUM, LAURETH SULFOSUCCINATE, SODIUM LAURYL SULFOACETATE, IMIDAZOLIDINYL, UREA, METHYLPARABEN, SODIUM STEARATE, ALCOHOL.

      It's very easy to use you can either use it as a basic mask or you can mix it in with some lotion i always use the foot soak and rub on skin if your in a rush and havn't got time to wait.

      The mask is a purple lilac shade with tiny little beads init which are not too rough and don't seem to irriate.
      it washes off very easily and doesn't leave any excess.

      What i liked about the mask
      I love the price the product does exactly what it claims to do, it's long lasting you don't have to use it over and over again for instant results, of course the smell it's not over powering which lavender seems to be sometimes the bottle is small enough to take on the go and perfect to use along with my other body care products.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A little disapointed.

      I've had many of these over the years my favourite one was black which my sister lost. I didn't have any problems with it and it lasted me a good few months it would have probaly still be wearing it if that didn't happen.

      They are all gold with a flower on them the petals over lap eachother to create a bold effect the shades are always lovely and shiny and the sizes are pretty decent. They have a cute circle in the center which is incrusted with fake diamonds some gold, some silver. They also have slight little patterns over the petals which give them a kinda 3D effect. Not to big, not too small can fit easily in any jewellery box.

      Since i couldn't find another black one i thought i'd try the new cream one to go with my long pearl earings also from primark they also didn't last long but, i don't think i can blame the manufacter they got stuck to alot of things because of the style of them Anyway...

      I noticed a few days ago the cream is chipping at a really fast pace which doesn't bother me much because it's white underneath and will probaly look better. Usually if i like jewellery when it breaks i'll go out and buy it again but, i won't with this one. But, the gold is lasting long, although i don't advise wearing it when you're involved in water it fits perfect and looks great with anything!

      Because i've never expierenced this with primark jewellery before i won't judge the purchase of someone else simply because i'm not sure what made it chip it may have been banged on a wall on a night out.. probaly was.

      So i would suggest it to a friend because these rings are so pretty and go with anything day or night, summer or winter. I'm actully abit gutted i didn't noticed the peach one in the picture

      The one i'm reviewing now 3/5
      Others i've bought 5/5

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Makes my blue eyes pop a treat!

        As i've mentioned in my other reviews i hardly wear any make up that isnt mousse or cream based and that also applies to my eye shadows. When i find somthing that works and i 100% love it i'll stick with it and rarely try any other brands but, I tried this once and loved the results.

        They come in alot of colours but the most popular one's you will see are the golden and amber. I personally use both depending on what my mood is but usually i will opt for the gold it makes my blue eyes pop! The usual price is £6.00 they rarely go higher than that and you can also get them for less than half price £2.50. This is one of the products that is always in the book so you don't have to bulk up and you also don't have to
        rashen your usually beauty routine. You get 24m in each one.

        They come in a little tube like tub and have the exact color of the shade on them so it's good that your not misleaded before ordering or before trying. The tube itself is about 2 inches long and the applicator appears longer that is actully but that's great because it's very easy to hold so you can apply as much or as little pressure as you desire. The top on the applicator is roughly about 3 1/2 inches long but the actual applicator is just the right size to get enough of the product on and to neatly apply on to the eye area. The applicator itself is spongey but the product doesn't sink in to the sponge. so your not losing any of the colour before you've even tried it.

        The powder is very silky and doesn't fall off easily if you want to make it last longer you don't even have to dip it back in sometimes. The product itself lasts quite along time which is supirsing considering how little the tub is.

        The top comes off and on easy but you do have to screw it on tightly because it's a loose powder not pressed so it can get pretty messy!

        All the shades are lovely, It's simply to apply. you just dip the applicator inside and slowly brush along your eye lides it doesnt smudge either. It lasts all night long and doesn't leave any excess when you blink.

        Shade: 5/5
        Price: 5/5
        Applicator 5/5
        Durability 5/5

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        You can never go wrong.

        This is the only foundation i wear and the only one i will ever wear. I have combination skin which means i can't wear liquid foundation if i do i will break out greatly, it shows my pores and just doesn't do anything for my skin i look better without make up rarther than using liquid which is a shame because so many girls look great with it on. I also wear contacts from time to time and sometimes put my foundation on before i put them in and with this foundation i don't have to worry about foundation getting stuck in my eye.

        About the foundation:
        It comes in a little almost clear tub with a screw on lid which comes on and off easy. You get 25ml in each tub. There's about 8 different shades so you have atleast two shades for each skin tone so you can opt for a glam look for the night or a natural look for the day. The reason mousse is always better as well is there's no spills. you can leave it on the bed and you don't have to worry if someone knocks it because it's tightly sealed in. If worn everyday it should easily last you about two months.

        The price
        It's £8.00 but, you can get deals on it like, buy one get one free you can sometimes get a half price foundation brush with it.

        The shade:
        I have fair skin but, i can tan quite easily so i usually use natural biege and medium biege. and they see me through all the seasons.

        Before and after Applying the foundaton:
        The easiest way to apply it is to dot average size amounts around your face and then blend them all together
        You will end up with a gorgeous flawless face. It hides every spot, blemish and pore. It never looks greasy and it lasts all day or all night. Always Moisturise before using it but, leave about 20 minutes after Moisturising your skin otherwise it may reverse the effect and make the make up melt off. It dries quickly literally in about a minute.

        Why I would recommend this product

        After it's dried you can apply the rest of your make up without worrying about it coming off or mixing in with your blusher, bronzer or highlighter. It doesn't give you spots so you don't have to worry if you forget to remove your make up once in a while. It's a timeless product which works without too much effort on your part. It just lasts and lasts it's small enough to keep in your bag and you don't need to wear alot of make up to make the best of the foundation or yourself. the only compliant i have is that it goes out of stock very fast so it's not always easy to get.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        An okay product.

        I have combination skin so i have to be careful with what i put on my skin especially Moisturiser. as i've mentioned in other reviews avon has the only skin care ranges i can use compared to other popular high priced brands. I'm also in the middle of using a very strong cream to help with big pores which dries my skin out terrible if i don't Moisturise properly.

        This Moisturiser is basically okay for anyone to use no matter what skin type you have but, most people with combination or oily skin opt for it. It helps to soak up oil from the skin but at the same time keeps your skin hydrated.

        This isnt the brand from avon i use everyday but i do keep a few bottles incase i run out of my other Moisturisers because it isn't the best thing... but, it's the next best thing.

        It comes in a little bottle with a spring disepenser just a little pressure and you'll get a blob about the size of a 20p which is enough for your whole face. Is it a pretty a weird colour a very light blue. At first it seems like it's very thick but, it's actully quite thin. It's applies easy and takes about five minutes to sink into the skin. I wouldn't reccomend using it at night if you have oily skin or get spots easily it's more of a day cream. Also even though it soaks up alot of oil on and from the skin your skin can still seem abit greasy if it's not left to dry long enough.

        The prices vary but it's usually about £3.50 to buy but you can get it cheaper in sale books for as little as £1.00.

        I would suggest it to a friend but I wouldn't claim it's a miracle product although it does do more than enough considering the price. It's great for in the summer because of the hydrating effect it has.

        Price rating 5/5
        Packing 4/5
        Overall rating 3/5

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great for anyone at any age.

        Oh, wow i love this!
        I wear this in the day usually with minimal make up and also sometimes when i hit the town depending what style i'm going for. For me, this product was so great because i only wear cream eyeshadows powder ones also look weird and cheap on me.

        The multi-pencil itself:
        It's fairly long and is very thick and has an equal amount of lipstick and eye shadow. The colours go perfectly together and compliment eachother great! or even look great on there own. What a great product. It doesn't break like other waxy lipsticks and is so easy to keep both ends come with easy to put on lids.

        The colors:
        You can get two colors in these. The pink and purple or theres another one which is kinda like a peachy goldy look.

        The lipstick - Is cream rarther than waxy but also has a slight glossy look to it. It's very pink and goes on so well it gets into all the cracks and makes lips look very youthful. It's just the right amount of pink. Not too pale not too bright because some lipsticks can be so tacky looking. I'm very pale my sister and mum have olive skin and the lipstick looks great on all of us. I'm not sure if it's for this purpose but you can also use a little big in with some highlighter for an added bonus.

        The eyeshadow - It's also cream and is a lovely lilac it goes on easy and you can make it as light or as dark as you like. It doesn't rub off easily and will last all day. It looks great with any eye colour and is a nice natural look.

        Again, these are always in sale books for only £1 each so i always buy about 3! they last sooo long are easy to sharpen and are only usually about £3.00 in the actual book.

        Rating 5/5 every time!

        My only complaint is they don't have it in peach or red i bet they would be smashing!

        Disadvantages

        One of my favourite rings to wear.

        Every girl needs a favourite piece which never fails them! My mum bought me this in blue for my birthday to go with the other presents she got me. It was only £2 and looks great with anything! I'm such a big fan of avon costume jewellery no matter what your budget is you will always find something to wear with any outfit because after all the little things make a big difference to any outfit. And, might i say all of the products including their jewellery are looking so much more better than they used to. Not only do i wear it with blue but i also wear it which alot of my peach clothes it just adds abit of a unique flare and makes the outfit not look so obviously done up.

        Its not like most big rings which get in the way all the time and often break after getting caught on something. Its sits perfectly over my knuckle and doesn't feel too tight leaves me with alot of room and is easy to wear all day and night. Obviously it isn't real gold but, It hasn't chipped or made my finger go green. The colour around it is a nice vintage bronzed look they also have alot to choose from to go with the ring. Earing, studs and also bracelets.

        I wish i spotted it in black also!

        My rating: 5/5 everytime!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Another great product for nail vanish addicts.

        I use nail vanish all the time and wanted abit of a change, My nails grow fast but they can break easy. I bought this from avon for £4.00, It usually comes in a nail vanish pot with a nail brush. So, i was suprised when i got something quite different but its good i did.

        It comes in a little clear tube so you can clearly see the colour. Pearl by name, pearl by colour.
        The colour is gorgeous and really natural looking. The brush is attached to the bottle and you have to squeeze just a little to cover the whole nail. The colour comes out very nicely not too thick not too thin. It takes minutes to apply and seconds to dry. It's great for every day it also looks nice on false nails. As soon as i apply it my nails instantly look healthier and also feel alot stronger. It doesnt chip like post nail vanishes but is easy to remove which nail polish remover, just one quick stroke and it's off. The product lasts me for about 2 months if used weekly. Its great if your a rush and you just want your nails to look like you've made an effort but don't have the time to use your usual nail vanish.

        What avon claims it does.

        " Leaves nails with a lustrous pearl finish...and a healthy buffed look. Helps strengthen with vitamins. Brushes on fast...dries instantly. " I 100% agree and will be using this product again. There's no doubt that i would suggest this to a friend.

        My rating: 5/5

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good But, not as good as other dry oil sprays i've tried.

        I have pretty fair skin so i'm always looking for ways to add a glow to my skin. I don't really want to use sunbeds that much and can never find a good fake tan which i 100% love.

        My mum is normally the one to purchase this so i just use it when she buys it. She tans very easily so this works very fast for her and leaves the skin very soft. For me, It does help me tan but, can make me burn depending on how much i put on and how long i'm in the sun.

        Pros: It smells great, Leaves skin soft and is quite cheap, easy to put on sinks into the skin very fast and doesn't stain clothes. Doesnt break the bank its usually around £4.00 a bottle and you do get quite alot. It's usually always in the sale book and it's very easy to dispense. I also do love the whole range especially the hot oil hair treament.

        Cons: It can sometimes leave skin almost looking plastic. It contains alcohol which is never good in any beauty product except maybe toners. I don't think its sutiable for all skin types.

        My Beauty Rating: 2/5

        Personal verdict: Although i give it a low rating i would maybe still suggest it to a friend. Its pretty cheap, smells great and is lovely too put on after a bath because it does lock in moisture.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I will not be buying this ever again.

        I've done a review on the st moriz tanning mouse and loved it. But, i thought i'd try the st moriz mist. I was happy with the price and the packaging but couldn't find many reviews on it but i thought i'd try it anyway.

        The tanning mist has the same packaging as the mouse and is also the same price i bought this from home bargains but you can purchase it online as well. The instructions are very accurate and help a great deal and they are on the back of the bottle.

        You apply it the same way you would the mouse with a tanning mit it's instant but does become darker within 2-3 hours so it's best to apply it before bed then shower in the morning.

        Well, i wasn't happy with it the spray top started to leak it went all over my carpet and my legs, the tan itself came out very dark and it took alot of spray just to cover one leg i was so unhappy with it that i jumped in the bath straight away and washed it off luckily, i still had some mouse left to apply some tan because i was going out the next night. But, on the flip side my sister then used it and it worked much better on her she has olive skin so i thought it works best rarther than on pale skin.

        My verdict: I will not be buying this ever again, the mouse is your best bet if your in a rush! I give this rating of 1/10!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Everyone should have one.

          I Have 2 pots of these one in my bag and one in my bedroom. I Use it on my lips every night because i have to use an acne cream that can dry my skin out abit too much. You can by these anyway and at anytime. In big supermarkets, boots, superdrug even in some clothes shops and also corner grocery shops. They last for ages even with everyday use. I use mine atleast 3 time a day and one still lasts me a month. I've tried every color and there all great for any season. There always a fair price usually £1 but sometimes there about £1.99 but never more than that. The only problem that worries me is the amount of ingrediants and also the petroleum Jelly because i've heard it's not good used regulary but, for now i'm going to stick with it because it doesn the trick. I think everyone in the uk has one of these because there so convienient.

          Ingrediants and there uses:

            A good product but not my favourite.

            Being a big fan of avon and a sucker for lipstick and lipgloss i always try the new ranges and colors. So i was delighted when they brought out this. I love all the ranges, makes, cheap or expensive. So when i seen this in the book in a lovely honey pinky color i ordered it right away. It didnt cost much only about £4-5.

            At first it takes a couple of twists to actully get the lipgloss out but after the first use it very easily comes out. Its easy to use and its sticky enough to stay on the lips but not sticky enough to run or get everywhere i hate it when my hair gets stuck in my lipgloss! The color itself is silky and there all very mild so great for everyday use. Although, i must admit its not my favourite lipgloss from avon and i don't purchase it alot. I give this a 3 star rating simply because i've tried better and it doesnt last very long if you use it everyday But, itis easy to use and is great for the price.

            One of the best mascaras ive ever tried.

            Oh great, i have this in lilac.

            This mascara is like no other. It gives lashes great volume and never clumps i actully find this with all mascaras. I will be buying it in black because i think the effects will be amazing.

            Now, my eyelashes are farely long and dark but some of them tend to tilt to the side and it's really hard to get an even effect so i'm always using a base coat of another mascara no matter what brand i use and usually clear mascara. This is simply perfect It Bought this in lilac hoping it would be as dark and as deep as purple eyeliner i have bought from avon before but, its not i was disapointed but once i started using it i was happy with my purchase. I wear this one its own but usually under my black mascara. The brush itself is great its very roung and makes you look like you have twice as many eyelashes and lasts all night. You will not be disapointed with your purchase.

            You know, as a women i know even if i buy a cheap mascara that's not that good ill still wear it because they all work and they all give the darker longer lash effect but this one is worth it. Its usually between £4-5 in avon but they also have this on the sale books i think i bought mine for no more than £2.

            Advantages

            A good product but does need improvements.

            After reading good reviews on this i purchased a small sample size with about 10ml init for about £2 its not my favourite product but, it was good enough for me to want to buy again.

            What it claims to do:
            Targets pores: visibly minimizes pores with patent-pending Optix Light-Diffusing Technology.
            Banishes Shine: holds back shine for up to 10 hours
            Smoothes Skin: reduces the look of fine lines...skin feels softer than ever.

            Now, i does do all of this but there are some draw backs. If you put it on too fast it can clog and also little flakes of this come off your skin if not put on properly. But, it does do what it says so i can't knock it. It's a great base for foundation but its also great if your on your way out and dont have time to apply all your make up it also has spf 20 init so it will protect your skin all year around. It also does last for hours and will make your skin look flawless with or without foundation. you could always just wear this with a little bit of blusher as well.

            The reason i give this a 3 out of 5 star rating is because i think it could be made even better. its worth trying because it may apply better on different skin type. And obviously if skin is abit dry it wont stay on properly.

            It's all fun and games well its suposed to be!

            Love this im actully watching this right now lol.

            Its about 4 or 5 strangers that are guests in eachothers houses when one plays host at a time. They all prepare three course meals and add there own little unique twists to it. They all mark eachother in secret from 1-10 and the winner wins a gran in cash presented on a silver plate and the winners and runners up on a piece of paper.
            Its aired on channel 4 also channel 4+1 also more 4 and sometimes also one4. There always repeated on sundays so you'll never miss them. There always from the same country but a different country is done every week. As you can imagin there is major drama. Its very enjoyable too watch especially if you love to eat and cook food like i do. Its fun to watch people make mistakes and they have all diffent types of people and ages. It's just like watching your favourite soap only maybe more interesting.
