      Advantages

      • "Makes me very clean"
      • "Smells beautiful"

      Disadvantages

      • "Uses up very quick"

      This soap smells beautiful

      I do not buy a lot of things from Lush but I like their soap for when I am in the bath or the shower. Rock Star is one of my favourites because it has got a very feminine smell and it makes my skin feel clean. The smell of the soap is very pleasing to me and is like the smell of candy. This soap smells a lot like Candy Cane or Fairy Godmother but they are not the same. You do not get very much of bubbles from this soap and that is a pity because when I am washing my body I like it when there are a lot of bubbles because they make me feel cleaner even though I know that bubbles are not necessary for cleaning.

        Advantages

        • "Gentle even for around the eyes"
        • "The gel is pleasing to use"

        Disadvantages

        • "Not a very pleasing fragrance"

        An effective cleanser but it does not smell good

        I was gifted this bottle of gel cleanser from Lierac by a client and I have used it for many weeks. It is a gel cleanser that foams when you rub it into your skin. The cleanser comes in a pump bottle but I think that the pump gets too much out and it is better to make one half of a pump to make sure you do not waste any. The smell is not very nice I do not think and it smells very strong even a long time after cleansing. The cleanser smells like herbs and I usually like that smell but not this time because it is too strong and makes me want to wash it off straight away. The cleanser makes a nice foam that is rich and pleasing on my face, if the foam goes into your eyes it stings but it is easy to rinse away also so the sting does not last for very long. It makes my skin feel very clean and refreshed and removes make up also including eye make up. If I am wearing waterproof mascara I have to use more of the cleanser and for a longer time but it does remove all of it in the end. My Lierac foaming gel cleanser sometimes makes my skin feel like it is dry and then I have to use a stronger moisturiser than usual. This is not all the time and only occasionally so I think it is when my hormones are making my skin turn dry. The cleanser costs more than 20 pounds and I think that is value for one that makes my skin so clean and stops me having to buy a separate eye make up remover. A bottle does not last very good though because you have to use quite a lot to make sure you can get enough foam to cover your face, you have to make sure your face is very wet before applying the cleanser also. 4 Dooyoo Stars.

        Advantages

        • "Pleasing to use"

        Disadvantages

        • "It does not make a difference to my hair"

        Not effective like it should be

        Miracle Moist shampoo is made my Aussie and there is a matching conditioner available also. It is for people who have dry hair that might be processed too much with styling products or is naturally dry. I bleach my hair so it is very dry sometimes and that is why I use this shampoo and conditioner when it is like straw. The shampoo does not smell so nice as other Aussie products but it has got a nice feel because it is a cool gel and you can get a lot of bubbles out of it if your hair is very wet when you shampoo it. It is easy to rinse out of my hair after I have washed it. My hair feels very clean after I have used this shampoo but I do not think it gives me so much moisture as I would think from the name of it. When my hair is dry it stays feeling dry after I have used this even if I use the conditioner also, using this shampoo does not make my hair feel healthier or stronger. It is easy to style my hair after I have used Miracle Moist shampoo because it does not make my hair loose and fly away, when I used it for the first time I did not rinse it out of my hair properly and then it made my hair look quite greasy and I did not like that. The shampoo costs about 6 pounds for a bottle and I think that is not value because it is not any better than other shampoo. I will not buy it again and if I want to use Aussie shampoo I will buy their original one because it smells beautiful and makes my hair very soft.

          Advantages

          • "Comfortable to wear "
          • "It keeps very good timing "

          Disadvantages

          • "No disadvantages"

          A very pretty watch that always has the right time

          WHAT IS IT?

          A very feminine watch with a pink strap made by Festina.

          THE DESIGN

          This watch has a bright pink leather strap and a large face. It is quite large and around the face there are pink and clear crystals. The numbers are very big and stand out good because the face of the watch is bright white.

          WHAT I THINK

          I am very happy with my Festina watch because the time is always very accurate. This is important to me because I am a mobile beautician so my work is appointment based and I do not ever like to be late. I do not think it is very good for timing my beauty treatments because they have to be extremely accurate and sometimes I think the hands on this watch sweep too quickly and too smoothly for me to guarantee accuracy to the second or even the minute sometimes.

          The watch is very comfortable for me to wear and there are many holes in the strap so I can fasten it up. The buckle is very smooth to use and that makes the watch pleasing to put on in the morning because I do not have to mess too much around with it.

          It is very easy to see the time on this watch because the numbers are so big and they stand out even though they are a shape that reminds me of graffiti. This is a very feminine watch that I enjoy wearing very much.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            This is a very good idea

            WHAT IS IT?

            A sleeve for chilling bottles of wine.

            HOW DO YOU USE IT?

            You freeze the sleeve in your freezer and put the wine bottle inside. The sleeve can be moved around when it is frozen so that it will fit different sized bottles and that is good because it makes the product very versatile. I store the sleeve inside the freezer because you cannot make it too frozen and that makes it always ready for me to use.

            WHAT I THINK

            I have been very happy with this sleeve and I think it is useful to have. It does not take room up in the freezer because it goes very small and so I can put it into small spaces. I like that the sleeve chills the wine very quick and takes only about 10 minutes to make wine that is perfect chilled from the temperature of your room.

            The bottle of wine stands up very straight when the sleeve is around it and it does not have any danger of falling over. The sleeve does not cover all of the bottle so that the neck is free and you can put the top on and off the bottle without the sleeve getting in the way. I keep the sleeve on the bottle for all of the time that I am drinking because I like the wine to stay cold and it warms up quite quick when you take off the sleeve.

            If I drip wine onto the sleeve I wash it in warm water and then let it dry before I put it in the freezer. It is very easy for me to keep it clean. You can use the sleeve again and again.

            ANYTHING ELSE

            I paid only £5 for my sleeve and I think that is value because I have used it a lot ever since I bought it and my husband has used it also.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I use this sometimes but not very much

            WHAT IS IT?

            A small cylinder that you put up your nostrils when you have a blocked nose. The cylinder is slim with a hole in the end and it is filled with Vicks so that when you breathe in through your nose you are sniffing the vapour.

            DOES IT WORK?

            I think this is effective if my nose is not very blocked but it does not do anything if I have got a very bad cold or if my sinuses are clogged. It smells nice and the smell clears my nose as I breathe it in but I do not think the effects last for very long and I have to keep sniffing it to keep my nose feeling clear.

            WHAT I THINK

            I think the inhaler is very easy to use because it is smooth and narrow so that I do not have to use force to put it up each nostril. The best way for me to use it is to close the other nostril with my finger before I sniff this because it stops any of the vapour from escaping. I have 2 sniffs in each nostril but how many you have is up to how blocked your nose is. It never has made me sick but if I have got a cough this can sometimes make my nose and throat tickle so that I cough more.

            I would recommend this to try for anyone who has got a blocked nose. It might not work because it does not always for me but I like to keep mine by my bed when I am sick because it is when I am lying down that my nose gets the most blocked and I will do anything for relief while I am trying to get to sleep.

            ANYTHING ELSE

            The Vicks inhaler costs about £2 and I think that is value for something that can make you feel a lot better quite quick if you have got the sort of blocked nose it works on.

            I am very happy with the Rock Chick gift set and would like to see it again

            WHAT IS IT?

            A small gift set from Lush that contains two products only. It is wrapped in paper that is designed like tattoo print but there is a label that tells you what is in the set.

            WHAT IS IN THE BOX?

            There is a Creamy Candy bubble bar and some Rock Star soap. The bubble bar is a full size one and the soap is cut in a wedge that is about the same size as if you picked a slice of soap off the shelf. The bubble bar and soap smell the same and that is very sweet and like vanilla sugar, I think they smell very beautiful and when I use the bubble bar I like to wash myself with the Rock Star soap for double the fragrance. I do that at the end of my bath though because soap makes the bubbles burst and that is a pity because they feel so nice.

            WHAT I THINK

            I like this Rock Chick gift set and have been happy every time I have been gifted one, I bought one for myself one time when it was reduced for a promotional price. I like that it is so small because it is a good gift when you have to buy for someone who you are not very close to in your life, I have bought it three times for people who I like to give a gift to on their birthday but when a larger thing would not be necessary.

            The products are both very good quality and the same as you would get if you bought them from the shop as separate items, I think you save a little bit of money doing that also but I like the way the set is gift wrapped so I do not care about paying a little bit extra money.

            The soap and bubble bar both have a very sweet smell so this is a set for ladies and not men but I think not very many men would like a Lush gift set and you can tell that this one is feminine from the name and wrapping on the box.

            ANYTHING ELSE

            I cannot find the Rock Chick gift set on the Lush website but Rock Star soap and Creamy Candy bubble bar are both being sold so if you can't get the set you can still buy the contents.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I am very happy with my Avon watch and wear it often

            WHAT IS IT?

            A watch for women that is from Avon. I do not know if it was for sale or a free item with perfume, my watch came as a gift set with a purple bottle of perfume. It is no longer for sale by Avon but I think you would be able to find one on Ebay sometimes.

            THE APPEARANCE

            This watch is very attractive. It has got a soft purple strap and the face of the watch matches this but it is shiny, the case of the watch is a silver colour and there are sparkled glass stones where the strap is joined to the case.

            The purple colour is very beautiful and I like to wear this watch at any time of the day or at night. There are not any numbers marked into the face of the watch but I do not care about that because even though I wear a watch sometimes I usually do not look at it and look for the time on my phone instead!

            WHAT I THINK

            I am very happy with this watch because it is so attractive and because it is a good watch also. I do use my phone most of the time but it is depending on what is easiest, the most times I would look at my watch would be when I am working on a clients hair and timing curling or waving times. This is in 2 - 5 minute lengths but that is hard to time when I wear this watch because of no numbers, I can time it if I am careful to watch the movements of the 2nd hand but that is not possible all of the time when I am talking to my ladies. That is not a disadvantage because it is not the error of the watch and I have learned to wear a different watch when I am styling hair.

            The strap is very comfortable and I like that the buckle is easy to work, there are not very many holes in the strap but I think they have good gaps between them so the strap will fit most wrist thickness. There is room to punch another hole also and the strap is the average length for a ladies watch.

            The time is never wrong even if I do not wear my watch for a week or more than that sometimes, I like the way that the hands move because they are very sleek and move smoothly. I think that makes the watch look very stylish because the cross of purple and silver is on trend and very feminine.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              I was very happy to receive this for Christmas

              WHAT IT IS?

              A gift set that has got a bottle of perfume and a tube of body lotion in it.

              THE PERFUME

              This is a 50ml bottle of perfume and 100ml of body lotion. The smell is heavy and flowery, I would not like to wear it in the day but it is a very stylish perfume so I wear it at night. I think the perfume would be nice for any woman of any age but younger ladies might not like the very musk flowery smell. The perfume lasts for a long time and does not need to be sprayed again, it lasts for an even longer time if you use the body lotion all over your body before you apply the perfume and I have done that because the lotion is very nice to use.

              WHAT I THINK

              I was gifted this set for Christmas and was very happy to receive it because I like perfume and had not used this name before. My friend knows me very well so it was not a danger for her to choose perfume for me, I would not have brought this for myself but I am glad to have used it because I think it is a very attractive perfume.

              I would like to see shower gel added into the set because that would feel more complete, the box is very large for what is inside also and I think it is something that you could spend your money on and be disappointed when you open the box. The bottle is very attractive but the body lotion tube looks dull and does not compliment the perfume bottle I do not think.

              The perfume is quality and so is the body lotion, I have used up all of the lotion because that has got a very soft feel and I used a lot for each application. The smells are not very much the same because the lotion has got a creamy smell that is a little bit like oranges, I think they go good together though even though the perfume is more flowery.

              I would be happy to receive this set of perfume and body lotion for a gift again and I would buy it for a friend also.

              ANYTHING ELSE

              This gift set of Boucheron perfume costs about £37 and I think that is value because it is a very nice set to receive and the products are very high in quality also.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              This is very good cream that is effective on bruises

              WHAT IS IT?

              This is cream that you apply to bruises to help them get better quicker.

              HOW DO YOU USE IT?

              You apply the Arnica cream to the area that has been bruised, you can start to use it straight away as soon as you injure yourself even if a bruise has not started to show up. You have to apply it gently because you would not want to make the area hurt worse but if it did start to hurt after it would be because of you not being gentle enough instead of anything in the cream.

              WHY DID I BUY IT?

              My grandmother recommended for me to buy Arnica cream when I was sick a few years ago. I had to have a lot of blood tests and I bruise very badly, I am a beauty therapist and it did not look very professional to have my arms covered in small bruises from these injections. I did not think it would work because I thought that a bruise had to change through the colours on its own to heal but I wanted to try it to find out if my grandmothers remedy would work.

              WHAT I THINK

              I thought that Arnica cream would help only with the colour of my bruises and how bad they looked on my skin but another very good thing about it is that it stops my bruises from aching and being very tender to touch. Most of the bruises I have put Arnica cream on have been inside my elbow and I move my arms a lot when I am at work so they got very sore in the day. I used the cream very often and it helped a lot and I was very happy for that. I have used it on my daughters also when they fall and bruise themselves and I am always glad that I can do a good thing for them when they are hurt because the bruises heel up very much quicker when I use this cream comparing to the times when I have run out and not been able to go and buy some more.

              The cream is pleasing to use because it is thick but very soft so it is easy to apply gently to my bruises. It does not rub in very quick and I do not know why because the texture of it feels like it is going to be a cream that would be fast to absorb but it is not.

              ANYTHING ELSE

              Boots Arnica cream costs about £4.50 and I think that is value because you do not have to use very much every time you apply it so it lasts for a long time. I will buy it always because it is a very good product to keep when someone in your family hurts themselves.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I like this pillow mist very much and will always purchase it

                WHAT IS IT?

                This is spray for your pillow that you should spray on when you are having trouble sleeping. You can buy it in 2 fragrances that are geranium or lavender, I have bought the lavender one only because I think that one would be more helpful for helping me to go to sleep.

                HOW DO YOU USE IT?

                You spray the pillow mist into the air that is above your bed so that when the mist falls it lands on your pillows and bedding. You can lightly spray it direct onto your pillow but I think it makes them feel a little bit too wet when you do it like that.

                WHAT I THINK

                I am very happy with this pillow mist because it makes my bedroom smell very beautiful. It is a very relaxing smell and I think that it does make me sleep better but that is only when I have fallen to sleep it stops me from waking up through the night, I do not think that it would help me to fall to sleep if I was not ready or if my sleeping pattern was disturbed. I feel relaxed when I get into bed after I have sprayed this into the air and I miss it if I have run out.

                The pillow or bedding does not get wet when I spray it the proper way into the air but if I get into bed straight away my pillow feels very cold, it warms up quick but that I think is the mist making a small layer on the material of the pillow slip. In the summer when it is hot I think it is very cooling to put my head onto the pillow as soon as I have sprayed it.

                When I spray the mist into the air I make sure that I always cover the whole bed because I think that is the best way and I get the scent all around my bedroom them, when my husband sprays it he keeps the mist near to the pillows and I do not think he uses enough because the smell is not strong enough and it is not so effective like that also.

                ANYTHING ELSE

                The pillow mist costs £4.50 and you can buy it only from Boots. The can lasts for a long time because you have to only use a very small amount every time you spray it so I think it is value and works better than cheap pillow mists from places like Avon.

                  Dioralyte works good but it is not pleasing to drink

                  WHAT IS IT?

                  Dioralyte is what your doctor will probably prescribe for your child if they go to see them with an upset tummy. It is a powder that you mix with water to make a drink that will replace salts and electrolytes that are lost when you or your child is being sick or has the diarrhea.

                  WHAT DOES IT TASTE LIKE?

                  I don't think the blackcurrant is very pleasing but it does not taste very bad either. It is quite weak but tastes more like chemicals than fruity and that is a pity because I would wish it to taste more natural for my children to enjoy the drink, it is very hard to get them to drink this but they do because Dioralyte should be drunk in sips and that is the easiest way for them to drink it anyway.

                  WHAT I THINK

                  I am happy that the Dioralyte powder is easy to mix into the water and it does not taste like powder when you drink it. I used it most recent for my daughter because she had a very bad winter bug that gave her an upset tummy for a week, she was very sick and could not drink anything except for water. I made her have a glass of this when she went to the toilet because that is when salts are lost, it did not upset her tummy any more than it was and I would see that she had more energy after she had drunk it. She said she did not feel any better but I think this is something that would repair you inside instead of making you feel better straight away.

                  My doctor told me that you cannot see the benefit when you use Dioralyte but he knows because of his profession that it works and only in the case of very extreme diarrhea would a child or an adult need something that is stronger than this. He said that the ingredients all work with the body and there is nothing in the powder than would not be of a benefit to my childs recovery when she was sick.

                  ANYTHING ELSE

                  A box of 6 sachets costs £3 and they do not last for very long so if it is a child who needs Dioralyte you should go and see the doctor to get them on prescription if they are needed because it would have cost me a lot of money to buy enough for when my daughter had her upset tummy and even now she still has one because she is not properly better yet.

                  Disadvantages

                  This is good but I would not give it to a child because of the cramps

                  WHAT IS IT?

                  Syrup that is made by Senokot. You take it when you have got constipation, I think it is good that they have started making this syrup because Senokot are very good but their tablets are large and do not taste good so some people cannot swallow them.

                  WHAT DOES IT TASTE LIKE?

                  This syrup is very horrible and it makes me feel sick. I have to always have a drink of water after but even that does not remove the taste all of the time.

                  WHAT I THINK

                  I bought this Senokot syrup only because I did not have any Lactulose and there was none in the shop either. It works a little bit faster than Lactulose but sometimes it makes my tummy cramp up very badly and even though it says you can use this syrup for babies who are only two years I would not do that because I would not like to risk giving my baby daughter a cramp in her tummy.

                  It does not make me rush to the toilet but eases constipation after about 3 doses only, it is gentle like that and when you go to the toilet it is normal instead of the laxative syrup making you have looseness in the bowel. It is effective but I would not like to take it for too long because of the cramp it causes me to have.

                  ANYTHING ELSE

                  Senokot syrup costs £4 for a bottle that is 150 mil. That is good I think because it works faster than Lactulose so you do not have to take so much.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  I am very happy that these work for my skin

                  WHAT IS IT?

                  Evening Primrose oil comes in capsules, there are different ways of taking them so you should look at the dose instructions for the ones that you buy.

                  WHAT IS PRIMROSE OIL FOR?

                  It is used to help a lot of different problems like skin conditions, period pains and also asthma and eczema.

                  WHAT ARE THE CAPSULES LIKE?

                  I think evening primrose oil capsules are always a little bit bigger than cod liver oil tablets but I have always thought they are just as easy to swallow. The ones I have got now were from Waitrose and they have got a little bit of an oily aftertaste so I will not buy them again because I do not like it and I don't get this taste with other primrose oil capsules.

                  WHAT I THINK

                  I have been taking Evening Primrose Oil capsules for a year because I have a skin condition that makes some of my body skin dry and sore. I have improved ever since I started taking them and even though my doctor gave me some very good cream it did not make all of my problem go away, 2 of my clients both said I should try evening primrose oil and they said this on the same day so I brought the first box only to trial. They did not work immediate but I did not think that would happen and it was about 4 months later that I saw my skin looked healthier and was not so dry.

                  I have noticed a lessening of my monthly symptoms since I began to take evening primrose also and I am happy about that because I did not know that that was a benefit until recent.

                  ANYTHING ELSE

                  Evening Primrose Oil capsules are a little bit expensive and cost between £5 and £10 for 60 capsules.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    This can help you to lose weight

                    WHAT IS IT?

                    Slimfast is a way of losing weight that you eat only one meal every day and your other 2 meals should be their flavoured milk shakes. It is called a meal replacing diet.

                    HOW DOES IT WORK?

                    You use low fat milk and mix the Slimfast powder into the milk, the powder mixes in very easy and it does not take very long. There are different flavours like banana, chocolate, strawberry and vanilla so that you would not get bored. You can buy bottles of Slimfast that is already made but they are very expensive and I think they taste thinner than the ones you make yourself with the powder.

                    WHAT I THINK

                    I think Slimfast is quite good but I have used it only for short times because I do not ever have very much weight that I want to lose. I do not feel hungry after I have had my breakfast milk shake but when I have my lunch one I do get hungry before it is time for me to have my dinner. I like that having the milk shakes stops me having to think very much about my meals and I can concentrate then on what I am going to cook for my main meal, you should count the calories that are in your meal but I do not because I rely on food that is healthy and low in unhealthy fats.

                    I use Slimfast for 2 or 3 weeks sometimes and in those weeks I can lose 7lbs. I do not ever need to lose more weight than that and I am active but I snack too much on sugary food so I know that the Slimfast is helping for me to achieve my weight loss when I feel that my clothes are getting tighter.

                    The Slimfast flavours all taste nice and I enjoy them, I think that the strawberry one is a little bit too sweet but I do not care about that and have it only when I want something sweet at lunchtime. I like to have banana or vanilla Slimfast for my breakfast. In the bottles you can buy one that is coffee flavoured but that is not pleasing to drink and made me feel a bit sick when I did try it.

                    ANYTHING ELSE

                    Slimfast powder costs about £5.50 for every tin and a tin will last for about a week if you use it twice every day like you are supposed to.
