      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      a good price for good quality!

      My View:
      I have used Maybelline product before and I'm a fan of everything they make. I have always been pleased with the foundations. Recently they have brought out this new Dream satin liquid and it has given me great results. If correctly used it will give the best results and give you a flawless look.
      The maybelline moouse was an mipressive foundation but I find this is much better. If you suffer with scars from spots or have blemishes this is the right stuff. It covers my blemishes, I never usually find something that stays on as well as this.
      At the end of the day you may want to re-apply some more but most foundations need to be used more than once a day anyway! I cant use lots of this foundation because it has an oily content but as it has such great coverage only a small amount is needed.

      The Pump Bottle:
      The bottle is very easy to use and has a pump at the top where you can retriave the liquid. You get 30ml in each bottle. They come in different shades such as fawn shade, coca shade, cameo and sand.
      If you apply in a circular motion to your face this will give it an air brush effect. Blend well for the satin, flawless look. Give your face 60 seconds to dry before applying any other make up or you will have smudges and a not so even application! You can purchase this at your local supermarket and big retail stores for around the price of £8.00. Tesco and Asda usually stock this product.

      I noticed my face looked like it had a glow from this foundation a heathly glow to it! I was happy with it straight away and I felt pleased. With the good price brings the good quality and that isn't always the case with some make up. I would rate it a 4 out of 5 stars only because of the oil content. I cant complain about the product. As a whole it made my face look flawless and that gave me confidence!!
      If you are thinking of buying this I would say do because it really gives you a satin finish to your make up. With the fawn shade remember to always blend well and apply powder/ bronzer to the neck area if your skin tone is lighter than the fawn shade foundation itself.

        Disadvantages

        Great remover and very gentle to skin

        Johnson's 3 in 1 Eye Make-Up Remover is gentle to your skin. The skin around the eye is very sensitive and thin so harsh chemicals can irritate the eyes. Johnson's have come up with perfect remover for any type of make up. I started using this 3 months ago and I really like the product, it has no harsh chemicals it is easy to use and doesn't leave a trace of make on my eyes. Other eye make up removers such as pads and wipes have been a real pain. I take my entire make up off before bed and usually I am tired. The last thing I want to do is be standing by the mirror rubbing my eyes for hours with the wipes or awful removers. This remover takes just two sweeps with cotton wool and it just slides off! It has an oil base, which makes it easier to get rid of all the mascara and eye shadow. If you like to wear lots of eye make up daily like me this is great for you.

        Dark circles sometimes can be confused with traces of eye make up that has not been removed from the skin. So to keep your eyes looking bright in the morning and make up free it's a beauty must have! Or just to clean your eye area it works well.

        Directions:
        It removes waterproof mascara, which can be stubborn and harsh on lashes. You get 100ml in the bottle it will last a while I get at least 4 weeks use from mine. Place two drops on a small piece of cotton wool and sweep the eye area gently, do not rub just sweep the eye area.

        Price; I purchased my bottle at boots and it is stocked in most supermarkets and chemists. Online beauty shops also sell this product. You will pay around £2.99 for this product
        That is a fair price.
        Overall I would recommend this to make up lovers. Its important to never leave eye make up on overnight. Look after your eyes as old make up can build up bacteria and will lead to eye infections.
        5 out of 5 from me!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great to use on spots!

        Rimmel Hide The Blemish Concealer is a good concealer for those days when there is a break out on your face and you need a quick cover up. Since the age of 13 I started getting spots, this time in my life I needed some help and make up was the only thing to really hide the spots. Being young I chose all the wrong stuff the greasy, wrong type of make up and my skin didn't look it's best on some photos! As I got older I noticed my skin still was breaking out, for some of us I don't think we ever stop getting spots. People who say they don't are just lying or have a dermatologist handy! Even dark circles around my eye area I get and always need some help with it. So this is really where the hide the blemish concealer comes in. You can feel more confident and look better if you apply it right.

        The concealer is applied to the area you have a spot/ blemish or where there is a dark circles are for instance. You pull the lid off and slowly twist the stick at the bottem to reveal your concealer. The eye area can be sensitive so test a small patch on this area 24 hrs before just in case there is irritation. Next apply the concealer in small dots under the eye being careful none of the product gets into the eye area. Then very gently with your finger blend under the eye until smooth and the look is even and covering the dark circles.
        Do not worry is the eye area is now slightly light in colour as you can touch up the colour with a loose power to fix that when you apply your usual face powder. For spots always dot a small amount of moisturiser on the blemish because putting the concealer on straight away will make the area look flaky and white almost crusty looking. The moisturiser will smooth any dryness on the blemish allowing it to look better once the make up is on. The smaller he amount you use of this the better really, so dot a very small dot on the spot the size of a small pea and gently again with your finger smooth and blend till covered.

        I use this on a regular basis so I need it for a good price. I usually get mine online at a chemist sites for £2.49, which is very good. Though there is an offer on at the moment with superdrug you can buy 3 for the price of 2 and that will cost you £4.29.
        You can buy the right tone to match your skin there are soft honey and ivory shades.
        This is dermatologically tested and proven to help treat spots with its formula and most blemish sticks even have a slight bit of tea tree in them to help!

        Perfect to smooth and cover them blemishes in fast time and perfect for those awful breakouts. Taking off make u before bed really helps your skin too!
        5 stars from me!

        Mum Roll On Deodorants:
        Sometimes being fresh is not always that easy if you dont have a trust worthy roll to protect you through the day. I often use deodorant spray but I have now changed to a roll on.

        My Opinion:
        Since I used the mum roll on fresh pink I feel more fresh and feel more confident. I cant use certain roll on's that are too harsh as I will just get irritated. This roll on is very mild and very easy to use. I remember my sister used to use this and I thought well I might as well try it for myself she always said how she liked the smell and it was good stuff. The other deodorants I have used never made me feel fresh enough and I was always having to use them to many times during the day.

        It became a pain in the bum, the last thing you want it to have to apply the roll on too much. It should just do its job like this one. The first day test of the product wet very well, I applied the roll on to my underarm area and went about doing the daily routine. After a few hours I was still fresh and the roll on stayed dry and fresh till the end of the day so great result for me.
        The Price:
        So I went on a trip to the shops and saw it in superdrug for £1.29 for the 50ml roll on. If you do not like perfumed product but still want to stay fresh they do a unperfumed roll on also for the same price!
        The mum brand is famous all over the world and has a range on deodrants and roll on on the market. Mum have been making products since 1888 their brand was invented in philadelphia in America.

        The package:
        The roll on has a pink srew off lid and is easy to use, just take the roll on and where you find the deodorant ball apply to your underam and move in a circle motion. This will be the same for the other arm pit area once finished replace the srew cap to keep from drying out the product.

        Overall:
        Great product and I will be using this again rather than changing back to a spray deodorant. 5 stars from me!

          Good looks for any nail sizes!

          Collection 2000 has been making beauty products for years and they are cheap in price and perfect for a little beauty fix on a low budget! The nail varnish is good but every shade in my experience. The maxiflex formula is designed to keep your nails looking good by day 5 of wearing it. I thought I would the 5-day test!
          Day 1:
          Applied the shade of midnight rouge to my nails and finished it with a one coat of topcoat just to help with staying power.
          Day 2: Looked at my nails very carefully and vainly admired the gorgeous colour and shine!
          Day 3: Had so mush to do in the house the nails where bound to suffer, that night another look and they made it through my cleaning harsh Monica from friends cleaning routine!
          Day 4: One small chip on my little finger not that big enough to notice but I thought I would let that slide!
          Day 5: Bingo hardly any chips! Who ever said you need to spend a fortune on nail varnish to get quality and as a beauty therapist I know! I have tried the lot. The good old-fashioned collection 2000 is still a great type of varnish for your nails and the maxiflex did its job!

          I enjoyed my 5-day challenge and just to prove the point of this does save money I wore a 5-pound polish on my toes all the way through the challenge and the toes chipped pretty badly. You can get many different colours from the collection 2000 website and they are still low in price. Glossy finish, great brush and when it is applied it doesn't even need that many coats. Some nail varnishes take forever to build the colour this doesn't which is a bonus if you're in a hurry. It dries fast and does not need touching up for 5 days. Buy it from boots for the price pf £2.49 per varnish and you get 12ml to use, which will last you a long time. For a night out the shade hot purple is a smash with a cute silver clutch bag for a style tip!

          5 out of 5 for staying power and passing the test.
          5 out of 5 for the range of different colours!
          And finally 5 out of 5 for it amazing look!

          5 out of 5

          Nivea hand cream is an excellent beauty must have!
          I do like to look after my hands and Nivea really have everything for them. I love the feel of this hand cream it is so silky and smooth. Any rough skin on the hands is treated very fast and left feeling smooth. I didn't used to use hand creams before I discovered the art of beauty therapy and now I am obsessed with the new creams Nivea make. This cream is the oldest and the best really. My mum used to use it years ago and I always remember not being able to find it in her room so I could rob some off her!

          I saw some in boots and soon to my mothers relief I had my own. Certain hand creams don't nourish the skin on the hands they only give it a small amount of moisture but because the cream isn't a good texture. Even top brands I notice have the same effect they are only best for temporary use. This one leaves my hands feeling soft for days not just a couple of hours. You can buy this boots and superdrug for around £2 for the 50ml. It comes in a tin, which can be messy, but it does the job and it's not about the packaging with this product. I love its normal no frills style anyway! The blue tin with the Nivea logo on the front crème being the main word. That's really what it is about see the creams texture because it is that, that really makes all the difference to your hands.

          Rub a small amount into your palms and into your wrists it is good to also rub some into your cuticles and nails to keep them soft. After a week of using this stuff you really notice the difference in your hand and nail colour. The nails with look nourished and the palms will be soft and the cuticle will be nice and moist. You will have hand confidence.
          Someone with soft nice hands always give the impression they look after them selves well and that's a compliment.
          So compliment your hands and rough skin being picking up this tin. Keep it in your bag and use it twice a day.
          Good for sensitive skin and great for dry skin, if you suffer with any skin allergies it's always best to try a small dot on the wrist and wait 24 hrs to see if your suited with this but it is very unlikely an allergic reaction will occur.

          It has a fresh fragrance nothing strong and it smells a little like after sun but not as harsh. Overall brilliant product and great price will be buying it again my hands feel the best they have ever felt these days!
          5 out of 5!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          nothing that special

          Tresemme Heat Defence styling spray I got for a present once and what I thought would be helpful for my hair was not that helpful. I saw my friend using it so I thought I would give it ago. I decided to try it before I went out one night. So jumped in the shower, got out and picked up the spray and did as it said on the back which is spray through damp hair for best results so that's what I did. Then dry the hair and style as normal so I did and as I was drying my hair I found it to be more frizzy from using this stuff than it had ever been before and I didn't think that was a good start. It is suppose to help your hair against heat damage stop your hair breaking and damaging from all the styling and blow-drying. Though it is an okay product I don't think I will be using it all the time only when my I have a week where I have styled alot.

          My hair on my night out turned into fly away hair even though I had previously used hair spray. I looked like I had been rubbing a balloon on my hair it was very annoying.
          I noticed the next day my hair looked dry on the ends and it was really hard to get the comb through it. I have used hairsprays and they haven't left my hair like that so it was to do with this stuff. The only good part I noticed about this product is it does help your hair become shiney. A few days later it didn't look so dull maybe that's just how it works the first time you use it. My hair seemed to get used to it but still my ends where not doing well with the stuff. My friend uses this all the time and says its perfect for her hair so it I guess it is suited to very fine hair. I have thick hair and I don't think it helps with having that.

          You don't have to take my opinion as I say my friend loves this stuff so you can try it yourself but I would say do not use on thick hair in my experience. It smells lovely and your hair does shine after using it so there are positives and negatives with this product.

          I do use treseme products but for some reason this one isn't working for my hair. You get 200ml in the bottle and you can get it for £3.50 at the cheapest which is not the best price try online you will find it cheaper on beauty sites. The product says it helps protect from heat and is good at reducing frizz. Not in my case but I really think it suits fine hair for the best results. If you do not want to buy the 200ml you can pick up a 60ml bottle from boots it is small and a lot cheaper mine was £1.50.

          Overall a good product for fine hair not thick and could do with more work on the bottle the style is mediocre. Try it yourself but don't expect amazing results just something to make hair stronger that's its main job.

          I will give it 3 stars.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          good for the price

          Avon Colour Trend Nail Colours are very sweet little nail varnishes that have the most amazing colour. I often get Avon nail varnish it's nice from time to time to treat yourself to a gorgeous new nail colour. So I decided to flick through the book as you do and look for more shades and I got this one the color me pretty. Strange name to call it but it was whether it was any good that mattered.

          I really like this colour called color me pretty nail colour. It's a dark pink with a gorgeous shine to it its nice to have a bold but pretty colour on the nail once in a while it gives your hands life and makes them stand out. It has a raspberry type of colour to it and I love it! The bottle was £2.75 but now there is a special offer on with Avon and you can get it for £1.37! That's a bargin all right! especially for this color me pretty varnish. This colour is perfect for night out it has shine rather than a tacky sparkle I hate sparkle varnishes they so look cheap sometimes. I tend to wear the different shades because there is a shade to match any occasion. Flash shade for romantic evening and the Freezing shade for the day time look on the nails. After I apply it I usually keep it on for 4 days and I test if it's chip resistant when I first get it. This one I was surprised with because its appearance is very diseveing, as it looks small, they do say good things come in small packages! On the fourth day there was not a chip in sight and I was made up because my nails still looked rather fresh!

          You can pick this nail varnish up from Avon and other sites such as Amazon. With Avon's price now for it being so low that's probably your best bet. The less you pay the more you save. On beauty products and make up I like to save money by looking for a sale or an offer.
          If you like this shade you will love the shade Iced Champink that is pretty close but lighter in colour. I enjoy buying new nail varnish and I wont hesitate buying more of this because of its quality and colour. Also it has great staying power unlike some very expensive varnishes. The other day I got a nail varnish for 5 pounds buy the second day it was chipping everywhere I was so embarrassed.It just goes to show cheap and cheerful varnishes are not bad at all!

          5 stars for staying power and the amazing colour.
          5 stars for the price and saving me money.
          4 stars for package I think it could be slightly bigger but overall the best parts are 5 stars!
          Great varnish that goes on well and smooth not sticky and perfect for a special occasion!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            great for summer!

            Nivea Sun Vitamin E After Sun Lotion is a good after sun lotion that we take away with us every year. You can pick up cheap after sun lotion but trust me it never feels the same as this stuff! Most cheap and awful after sun lotions have a high amount of fragrance in them which if anything is going to irritate your sunburn even more.

            So the best is what you need, I like the sun as much as the next person but there is always an area I forget to protect. This area soon becomes as red a beetroot then I'm soon in pain! The nivea sun after sun lotion is made with a soothing ingredient, which is aloe vera. Aloe vera is so soothing and cooling it has a natural cooling agent that treats your sunburn with care and helps it heal fast.
            Every one must cover their whole body with sun cream during the day's heat that is a high factor especially in the foreign heat. The skin can be so sensitive even when you think your skin is as strong as anything it really isn't. The skin becomes burnt if not protected and sun damage is the number cause of wrinkles in young people.
            Moisturise your skin in the night even if your going out and you have finished your day of sun tanning and getting ready to go have your holiday night out. A little splash of nivea sun after sun with moisturises and soothes the skin stopping it from peeling and flaking through the night.

            In this bottle you get 200ml and the price is usually £5 to £6. Amazon does it for £6.95 but I picked mine up from my local supermarket for £4.90.
            The Facts:
            Vitamin e is what our skin needs to remain healthy and moisture is the key to keeping the skin looking younger for longer. Sunburn really dries out the skin and causes the skins top layer to flake sounds painful I know! You have 5 layers of the skin and each layer is filled with new skin cells ready to come through once the previous cells have become a few days old. Sunburn can cause damage to the skins top layer and that is why we peel. That white, flaky stuff is not a great sign for your skin. Its normal to flake if you have sun burnt but it means you haven't been protecting the skin during the day as much as you should. Remember to always apply sun protection cream throughout the day. Waterproof cream says it is waterproof but it is always best to re apply each time to return from being in water.

            Get silky smooth skin on your next holiday by using this after sun after you've had a day of tanning. Never use the after sun as a sun cream protection as that can be very harmful to your skin it isn't a sun cream factor! A high factor is your best bet for healthy skin and a good sun hat investment! Great after sun and I always feels so much cooler after using it perfect for sunburn!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            great product and great for lips!

            Avon Glazewear Clear Lip-gloss is perfect gloss for that perfect glossy look. I started using it only recently and I love it! I usually go for bright colours but I looked in my make up bag and thought I don't have a nice clear gloss so got my Avon book out and saw this one.
            I know its abit pricey at £5.50 but in order to get that good gloss you need to shell out slightly. Its common to spend more on make up now but I only go up to a certain amount I know my limits! I will pay up to ten but that's it! I haven't gotten a lip-gloss for a while so I thought what the hell. I'm sick of seeing all bright colours on myself and wanted to see a natural look on my face. Too much make up can sometimes hide the natural beauty that we all have under all that make up.

            I jotted the order down and bought it for £5.50 for the 6ml tube of clear gloss and I gave it a try you know the o natural look. It was perfect and did not irritate me it was not sticky or messy. It gives my lips a real gorgeous shine, which shocked me, as I never thought a clear would do that for my lips. Its not shimmer or anything but the clear gloss does shine and look great. It feels smooth on your lips and makes them appear bigger which is a bonus!
            You can get his in other shades such as brown sugar, cherry liqueur and intense plum. All lovely shades my next pick will be the pink watermelon shade because that looks fancy.

            The clear gloss looks smart on your lips there is time for loads of colour but there's also time for a clear lip. Try a light, soft pink on your lids it goes down a treat! Its staying power is brilliant especially with the bolder colours also with the clear too. Eating and drinking doesn't smudge or affect your gloss! Most glosses fall at the first sign of a drink or a nice bit of lunch and re applying can be a pain but this does a good job.
            The gloss its self has a black twist of top and the smell is nice not sweet or wierd tasting just right for me. By far it's the best gloss it and I own will be hard to beat that's why I love Avon they make some great stuff. Its 6ml and easy to carry round with me you get plenty it the tube and what makes this one different to all the rest is you can feel its quality once you apply it to your lips its feels lovely and you feel gorgeous with it on. The lip-gloss is one of Avon best I have tried lots of their glosses and I personally like this one try it yourself and see what you think.
            5 stars for staying power
            5 stars for the look of the gloss
            5 stars for the package.

              Disadvantages

              good for feet in general

              Avon Footwork's Revitalising Spray is a must have for me not that I suffer with really bad smelling feet all the time but yes sometimes we all do but as a beauty therapist long standing and wearing socks with flat shoes can sometimes cause smell! Anyone on his or her feet will find this is always good to have handy in a bag. If your busy at work and you fancy a nice freshen up why not spray your feet? It might sound mad but the last thing you want is smelly feet when you get home. Not pleasant for you're other the person who washes your socks that day! So Avon have created this a brilliant spray by footwork's and this has been around for years it is the best by far. I am always looking after my feet as a beauty therapist I enjoy looking after other peoples feet, so when someone comes to me with a foot odour issue this is my advice buy Avon's footwork's spray it eliminates odour in a spray and leaves you feet feeling soft and smelling fresh.

              Just a couple of sprays of this on the feet and it will leave them smelling nice not cheesy! The worst thing after a hard day is to come home smelling horrible and a bad foot smell tends to stay put till you do something about it.

              Sometimes a simple soak isn't always the answer. If you suffer with athlete's foot I would advise you to not use this till you have been on a course of treatment to eliminate it. As putting any beauty products on the foot may irritate the area and only make athletes foot worse. Tips for treating this problem is to visit your gp and see what treatment is best for your feet there are plenty of creams to help with this and always stick to using your own towel till the infection is gone, you do not want to cross infect any objects you use on a regular basis because you will contaminate then with bacteria. Regular airing of the feet and regular soaking and cleaning should do the job. Along with special cream from the gp will help get rid of it.

              Foot hygiene is very important as bacteria can really spread and give us bad foot infections. I always use some anti bacterial gel on my feet and then use the Avon foot works spray. Its then perfect for a nice polish and a pair of gorgeous shoes!
              Contact your local rep and you should get a magazine with the foot works range in; pick the foot works spray and jot down the details for your rep. It should arrive within a week or two and it will cost you £3.50 for a 75ml bottle. I find a spray in the morning and night keeps them fresh enough keeping the smell at bay for hours!

              Give it a spray and see what you think even though it can cost a bit it is worth it for nice smelling feet!

              Clean linen is a smell I always remember when I was a child, whenever my mum would do her washing she would wrap me up in the really warm cosy, bed cover that had just come out the tumble dryer. I always loved the warmth on my cheek and the lovely fresh smell. Since then I'm all grown up and doing my own washing in my own home and still love the smell of fresh smelling washing some people like weird smells but I like this one! I can't believe they have canned the smell for me! So now I love spraying it round my home, when you walk in it smells so fresh and clean.

              It's mad how we all remember different smells as children even when we grow up we never forget them! Glades clean linen is perfect for your home and great for those horrible house smells! Families are always bringing in different smells but after walking my dog the house doesn't smell that nice especially if it's been raining and wet dog smell well think you know what I'm saying! Yuk.
              This glade clean linen has a 2 in 1 action it freshens and fragrances all in one can.
              You simply give it a shake and then a spray but always hold at arms length and point towards the centre of the room read the directions on the back of the can for assistance. Do not spray near an open flame because this is highly flammable.

              The smell stays in the room for ages but be careful do not spray too much because a bout of coughing may occur as I have experienced!
              You get 300ml in the can and you can pick this up at your supermarket I got mine from Asda for 99p and that is a bargin! It is not used for fabric but glade does a clean linen room spray for fabric as well which I also like buying to make the house fresher.
              Always use in well-ventilated rooms never in confined spaces and keep out of the reach of children at all times.

              The air freshener sprays the scent out of the top of the can. This should last you a while 300ml is more than enough and sometimes Asda do a 2 for the price of one offer so keep your eye out for that. I recommend this airfreshner to anyone who likes a clean fresh smell in his or her home and want a nice scent throughout the house. I have used this for two years now and will still be using it in years to come, love the smell!

              5 stars for freshness
              5 stars for packaging

                Colgate toothpaste is the one of the best toothpastes in the UK and the brand have many different types of toothpaste, sensitive pro relief, triple cool tube and others. This is the original cavity protection toothpaste that is most commonly used, the teeth are put through plenty when we eat different food and drink coloured, sugary drinks. This toothpaste gives protection against all the bad food for our teeth!
                I like the regular flavour suits me fine and anything else can become too sweet or strange tasting. Having good teeth and fresh breath is important to me that's why don't smoke or drink sugary drinks but even people who do this is the one you want to be using. Tooth decay is the number one cause of gum disease and its not easy to control once you have it but this will help if you do suffer with it. Brushing your teeth as much as you can really is essential, twice a day is just right and maybe after big dinners that may stain teeth.

                Colgate has been making toothpaste since 1873 but back then it was in a jar, now days we have toothpaste tubes that are easy. They can get messy but they are the best way to get the toothpaste out. This tube contains 100ml (153g) of the paste and the cap just flips up ready for you to squeeze it out. I find it better squeezing from the bottom of the tube this releases the paste faster onto the brush. Colgate toothpaste is for children of 6 years and adults a pea size amount for children on the brush and 1 and a half cm amount for adults. Do not swallow the paste spit it out into the sink and rinse straight after brushing.

                Fresh breath makes me feel more confident when talking to people having bad breath isn't a good thing! and it all stems from the tough so I always brush that too but not too hard as the tongue may bleed with hard bristles on your brush. You can always follow your toothpaste with a mouth wash Colgate also do a range of mouth washes but I usually just get any mouth wash really. The toothpaste is the important bit for me you can pick this up everywhere Asda, Boots, superdrug and many more though prices many vary. I would usually pay anything from £1 to £2 but the usually price is £1.26.

                Most toothpastes contains an active ingredient called sodium fluoride and this helps clean the teeth through the its the white paste and is not harsh on the teeth. There is a very low risk of any allergy but if your using this for the first time just use a small amount first to see if it suits you. There is others to choose from and if your suffering with tooth sensitivity there is plenty of other pastes they do to help.

                My teeth always feel the benefit after using this and my breath smells fresh my teeth are noticeably whiter in colour and my dental hygiene is the best its ever been! and I have suffered before with many gum diseases. Since using this the gum problems have completely vanished!
                5 stars!

                  Olay Gentle Cleansers Refreshing Toner is a great for your skin and I use this daily. I always cleanse, tone and moisturise everyday because I want my skin free from spots and grease. Everyone at least once in life suffers from spots. I usually get spots a lot no matter how much I look after my skin but if I do neglect it then it becomes worse for instance if I fall asleep with my make up on then dirt from the make up will soak in my skin overnight and then my pores get clogged. The best thing about toner is it really tightens pores and removes the dirt.
                  After you cleanse and tone it becomes free from impurities. This toner really is one of the best Olay have made there are many ranges of skin care products that Olay make for your skin. These all give your skin life and help your appearance become more radiant. As a beauty therapist I have experience in working with different toners and this is a good one.

                  Your Beauty routine:
                  Cleanse:
                  In the morning grab the bottle of daily Olay cleanser and squeeze a small amount onto a damp cotton pad. Next massage the cream in circular motions along the skin on the face with the cotton pad. This will remove the old make up or any dirt along the way.

                  Tone:
                  Damp cotton pad again and get your gentle refreshing toner and pour a small amount onto the damp cotton pad. Then slowly go over all your face except the eye area and in circular motions, remove the grease the cleanser left behind till your face feels free of cleanser.

                  Moisturise:
                  After your face dries for a few minutes from your toner, grab a facial moisturiser and dab small dots of it on the cheeks, head and neck. This will put back essential moisture and leave you feeling fresh and clean.

                  The Olay toner is a gentle toner for your skin is low alcohol and that's perfect for your skin a product containing too much can irritate skin. It also contains witch hazel and witch hazel is very good for healing the skin. If you have sensitive skin only use a very small amount of the toner on the damp cotton pad. The price of this toner in your local supermarket is £2.99 and the cleanser is usually £2.50. The toner can be bought online at chemist sites. The bottle has a blue cap and is easy to open and the bottle contains 200ml of the gentle toner which will last a while, if you are using it everyday you do not need too much off the product and that way you are saving it and it will last a lot longer. If you over use, it will dry out the skin and it will end up costing you more to replace each time.
                  Give it a try and see what you think!
                  4 stars from me.

                  perfect butter for the skin.

                  Coco butter I have been using for 5 years it really soothes the skin and makes it smooth. I often use this just after a shower and I rub it all over and don't miss a spot. It gives my body back moisture as I suffer with dry skin on my back and shoulders this is perfect to keep it under control I like the feel of my skin after using the coco butter it becomes soft and smooth with a silky feel to it. I often apply this and the best results are in the morning if applied before bed.
                  The best thing about this cream is that the smell is just coconuts and butter such a lovely smell when on the skin it's not too harsh or too sweet but just right! Palmer's coco butter is rich in vitamin e, which helps heels, elbows and other usually dry areas on the body.

                  The butter is a thick and creamy in texture which makes it better to use on the really rough areas of the skin and it blends well on scars healing them faster but do not apply on open wounds as it is not a antiseptic cream.
                  Its perfect for my skin and the tub has 125g in it making it last a long time even if used frequently!

                  The tub is round in shape and is white in colour with the palmer's logo on the front and in bold writing coco butter underneath. It is easy to open as it's a screw off top and there is no mess as with a squirting bottle. I picked mine up from my local supermarket for £2.99 shops such as Asda and boots stock this product. Anything from £2 to £3 is usually right and a deal.
                  I would recommend this to anyone who has just come back off holiday and really wants to keep their tan longer this is the product, it keeps your tan longer and looking fresh and sun kissed with a gorgeous healthy glow. It isn't a sunscreen though just a great moisturiser for your skin at anytime.
                  My sister and mother use it and say its there best good old fashioned moisturiser as it's been around for years and with its quality being so good it will stay around for years. You can pay lots for some fancy stuff but this stuff is fairly priced and gives the best results every time. Palmer's do a range of coco butters and special ones for stretch marks.

                  5 stars for the moisture on the skin
                  5 stars for the softens of my skin and
                  5 stars for the original look of the package.
                  Great product by Palmer's.
