I am obsessed with acids and this one has one of the highest acid concentrations found in over the counter products. This is great for users who have experience using acids for exfoliating their skin. I religiously use this every week, sometimes twice a week if my skin is particularly acting up. I ensure to keep it on only for ten minutes. It stings a bit, but nothing unbearable. It is a must to use a moisturizer after using this. This leaves my skin really soft and glowing, and brightens up my complexion immediately. I love the morning after using this as my skin is perfect and my makeup goesmore... on really well. I have noticed that my acne scars and pigmentation have lightened over time by using this. It helps regulate the oil production of my skin as well, it's a complete treatment for oily acne prone skin in one product! This helped my skin absorb the other products I use after this much better and I've noticed I need to use lesser quantity of products than before. This is an absolute holy grail product for me and I would continue to use this for a long time. People with sensitive skin should probably carry out a patch test before using this.
I got this in a 3 for 2 offer from superdrug. The unusual combination of black lava and orange peel intrigued me and I got this out of curiosity. I am so glad I did, the first thing that hits you when you open it is the fresh orangey citrus smell! I would buy it again for the smell itself! It stings a bit when you have just put it on, but the stinging settles into a tingling sensation after a minute or two. I kept it on till it dried (about 15 minutes) and wiped it off with a warm flannel. The first thing that struck me was my super bright skin! I was worried my skin would turn red due to themore... stinging, but there was no redness at all and my pores were noticeably shrunk. It made my skin feel really clean and glowing, without drying it out despite the lava which is basically clay . However it is essential to moisturize after using this. I have also used this as an overnight spot treatment to shrink pimples and it's worked a treat! There is enough to get 2-3 applications out of one pack and with a 3 for 2 offer, there's plenty of choices to try. I would definitely recommend this and get it again!
I have this in three shades, Spiritual (a ttue, fiery red), illusion (a dark nude-brown) and telepathy (maroon-plum) and I know I'm going to have a lot more of them. They are extremely pigmented and just glide on the lip. They stay on all day and don't need a touchup unless you've had some really oily food. It doesn't tend to fade around the corner like some other liquid lipsticks do. They are extremely transfer proof and don't leave marks on everything that comes in contact with your lips. They'reibly comfortable to wear and don't dry out my lips like I've experienced with other liquid lipstmore...icks. Once it is on, it's on and I tend to forget I have any lipstick on. I love the packaging of these, they look very sophisticated and slip right into my makeup bag. The only downside is that they take a bit longer than other liquid lipsticks to dry down and do tend to transfer when wet. To counter this I blot my lips after application with a tissue and then reapply and re-blot. This immediately dries it down and gives me super pigment and staying power.
These are so affordable at just £4 a pop and the shade range is amazing for all skin tones. They're an absolute winner!
I got this on a whim without testing it as there were no testers available. The black pigment is great, very intense and opaque in just one stroke. However the brush is terrible. It is a plastic nib which is very harsh and it pokes the gentle skin on the eyelids. I am all for stiff felt nibs but this is just cheap plastic. I get that this is only £3 and I can't complain much, but for me, the plastic pretty much made it useless. I have saved up the brush for another favourite eyeliner of mine which is what I use with this now because I love the pigment. It is easy to wipe off with a makeup wipmore...e and does not streak or flake off. I avoid touching my eyes at all costs, so it would be hard to say if it smudges. So far it has not smudged on me. It fades a little at the end of the day but I can't fault it. Overall good if you can overlook the brush.
I am a matte lipstick kind of girl so when I received this lip strobing gloss from Glamgeek, I was very curious to try it on as I don't own any such products. I have this in the shade Cosmogirl which is a cool toned iridescent pink shade with pale gold shimmer in it. I tried it on bare lips and it gives a nice sheen to them, the glitter is not chunky and looks subtle. The pink colour did not show up on my lips as they're naturally pigmented, but I would use this by itself when I wanted a subtle look. The best use of this product is as a lip topper, used on top of darker matte lipsticks. I usedmore... this with a dark maroon matte lip and it looked great with it, the iridescent shimmer looked really glossy and glamorous. I loved this look and I've since tried it with other matte lipsticks. The gloss isn't sticky and when applied on top of fully dried matte lipstick, it does not smudge the colour beneath. It does not ball up in the way some irritating lip glosses do and lasts a long time. I believe this is great for the upcoming party season!
I have very thick, dry and frizzy hair which is prone to breakage and dullness. I got this since I liked it's cute pink packaging and the chocolatey smell! And I'm so glad I did, this makes my hair so soft and shiny and really cuts down the frizz. I use it once a week as a deep conditioning treatment after shampoo and conditioner. I cover my hair from mid lengths to ends and let in on for about an hour. It leaves my hair really manageable and really smooth and the chocolate smell lingers in my hair for about a day. However, it mayake thin or limp hair very greasy as it's so rich and creamy.
I have been following double cleansing since some months now. I use this as my first oil based cleanser to take off all my makeup. The almond oil and beeswax in this take off the heaviest and hardest to remove makeup like waterproof mascara and eyeliner. I gently massage this on my dry face and wipe it off with a hot flannel which steams my face as well. Despite having oily skin, this does not clog my pores or give me spots. This could be due to using a foaming cleanser as my second step. It brightens and softens my skin, removes every trace of makeup and does not break me out! A sure winner!
This has been my holy grail face mask since a few months now, I suffer from acne and spots and I have oily skin. This reduces my acne and inflammation and gets rid of them in a day. I use this as an all-over face mask as well as spot treatment for acne overnight and it dries them out the next day morning. Love the smell and the ingredients, especially the mint and honey as it brightens my face and gets rid of excess oiliness without drying out my skin. I use this twice a week and it leaves my skin radiant and silky soft. Cannot recommend this enough, I'll probably use it till they discontinue.
Surprised this is not higher in the rankings. I got a sample after seeing a YouTube video to clear acne skin. I suffer from hormonal acne, spots and dull skin. I've been using this since a week and it's really cleared up my acne and spots and it gives me a nice glow. It's really brightened up my face. The ingredients are amazing and really help the skin. It's a bit pricey as compared to drugstore but completely worth it as I don't find drugstore face washes do anything for me. It works well with my oily skin in regulating the oil. I've already purchased the full size product to use everyday.
I got this from TK Maxx because I loved the vintage floral design on these. I'm really glad I did, since these are high quality tweezers with a precise slanted edge which helps me pluck out random, stray hairs. The pointed end helps in plucking out unwanted hairs from the brows without touching the other hair. The plastic cap on top helps maintain the edge of the tweezers and keep them in tip top condition. I'd gladly buy a spare for my handbag. Great find!
