Meg1‘s review of  Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Waterproof

“Bought just before the Isle of Wight Festival and wore throughout – I was amazed when it even stayed on my lashes on the final day when the rain came down. That had to be the ultimate test of a waterproof mascara! I also find the brush much easier to use than the usual elongated designs. Less likely to leave unwanted ‘blobs’ on eyelids and below the eyes, and it does a really good job of coating those vital outer lashes – you can really see the difference.”


La Roche-Posay Effaclar K - Daily Renewal Fluid For Oily SkinAlicja’s review of La Roche-Posay Effaclar K – Daily Renewal Fluid For Oily Skin

I’ve only been using this product for couple of weeks and I can see the difference already – fewer breakouts, pores less visible and my skin looks healthier. It is suitable as a make up base – my foundation looks nice on top of this cream. It is slightly heavier than other moisturisers from effaclar range (M or Duo) but not greasy. I love the fact it’s fragrance free like all la roche posay products. I was worried it might be too harsh for me because my skin is usually irritated and dried out after using skincare products for oily skin but this one is perfect. I recommend this product for adults struggling with oily skin and breakouts.


Klorane Oatmilk ShampooTammy‘s review of Klorane Oatmilk Shampoo

Having read an article concerning the amount of chemicals used in our most popular shampoos I searched for some alternatives. Visiting an organic shop in Kensington High Street I came across several brands of shampoos, seemingly chemical free by and large. Having tried out a few (most of them very pleasing in smell and the way my hair felt, but still had to use a conditioner as I have quite dry hair) I then tried Klorane’s Oatmilk shampoo and I have to say it is the best. My hair feels so soft and looks healthy, no need for conditioner and it doesn’t leave my scalp feeling itchy as some of the other shampoos did. Recommended this to a friend who also now uses it and she agrees that her hair feels so much better.


Bvlgari Petits et Mamans Alcohol Free Scented WaterS4WTY‘s review of Bvlgari Petits et Mamans Alcohol Free Scented Water

My 3 and a half year old constantly wanted to wear my perfume to the extent we sometimes used it as a bribe to get her ready in the morning. We gave her the perfume for her 4th birthday as she feels so grown up and loves dabbing it on her wrists and neck. Not only does it smell light and fresh it’s also kind to her skin



La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Skin Recovery Accelerator TheGirlOfStuff‘s review of La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Skin Recovery Accelerator 

I was recommended this product by a work collegue after suffering with the effects from dry and cracked skin around my nose from the air-conditioning at work and long term hayfever. I had the symptoms for nearly a month, after only three days of applying the product (once in the morning before my normal moisturising cream and once again before bed), it had healed and I wasn’t left with any unsightly scarring. Highly recommended – Five Stars! *****”
