MissDerbyshire‘s Review of La Roche-Posay Rosaliac AR Intense Care 
I’ve been using this for about 4 months now and it is so good I will keep on using it until I feel I can stop. Within 2 weeks it brought the high colour down from my cheeks by a considerable amount and has continued to calm them (but at a more slow rate). I don’t flare up scarlet in the heat and my alcohol ‘burn’ (red cheeks from drinking just one glass) has massively decreased. My skin is much calmer and more even – its much easier to get away with just a tinted moisturiser rather than a foundation. I wish I’d found this years ago. Its a real change to not spend a hot summer glowing in the dark. Well done La Roche Posay – I may even stay faithful to a brand for once!


7petals‘s review of Klorane Mango Butter Shampoo

Having very long hair which has undergone more than its fair share of colour changes, I find it hard to achieve the silky feel my hair used to have. This shampoo has enabled me to rediscover it. Just a very small amount of shampoo goes a very long way and once again my hair is soft and silky, even in the hideous hard water we have where I live. I am SO pleased I have discovered a source for this excellent product I have struggled to find in this country. Thank you, Escentual!


LiseB‘s review of DIOR Diorskin Nude BB Creme

Cannot recommend this product enough! I have been looking for a BB cream for a while and tried various brands but found the colours too strong and orangey for my pale complexion. This is perfect for English Rose pale skin and gives a lovely sheen and glow. It will certainly be on my must have list for the foreseeable future!


Fizzy‘s review of the  DIOR Vernis Long Wearing Nail Colour

As a life long-fan of Chanel and Clarins nail polishes I was sceptical. However, I was looking for a particular shade of green, and neither of the Cs could do it.

I defected to Dior and found Nirvana! Literally. Not only was it the exact colour I wanted, but it went on beautifully and lasted and lasted. I have since bought many more colours by Dior. Have also been seduced last year by their limited editions – beautiful shades of waterlily and forget-me-not – and also their smoky Rocks shades.


Fuzzyrisa‘s review of  the Vichy Capital Soleil Beautifying Sun Protection Compact SPF30

I love this , it does exactly what it says and is worth every penny. Having sensitive skin , very high colouring and get sunburnt extremely easy I found this compact perfect for me. Thought the colour may be too light at first but pleased I didn’t get the darker shade now as it would have been too dark . I wanted full coverage to cover my redness and also full protection which this gives ( you can simply apply more as day goes on) doesn’t look false, doesn’t clog and smoothes on seamlessly. I keep mine in the fridge , will definitely be ordering another when I’ve finished 🙂
