I was kindly sent this by LoLa. On warmer days I have don’t like to wear foundation and this seems the perfect answer. The BB cream is a little thicker than I expected, and the shade is a little dark for me. I first applied it using my fingers and though it was easy to blend into my skin but left it looking as if I had a suntan. The next time I applied it I used a Real Techniques Buffing Brush and it blended better into my skin without it looking as if I had a suntan. Both ways of applying it, it did not sit in my fine lines that I have around my eyes and mouth. It covered the darknessmore... under my eyes and on my lids. It is great to wear if you want a less structed look and are sightseeing or out walking at lunchtime as the SPF of 20 is enough. It lasted all day and was not patchy. The BB cream was easily removed using my IT Cosmetics Balm or Micellar Water. It is a great product if you want to look as if you have a tan as it has skincare benefits that some fake tans don’t have.
I love Palmer’s Coco Butter Body Lotion and hoped that this would help me with my dry hair. Maybe I should have bought the conditioner to go with it. I only used it the once as my hair while I was rinsing out the shampoo actually felt worse than before I used it. Once I had left it to dry naturally it actually felt like straw, was not its bouncy controllable self. This is one product I will not be buying again
As stated reviewing the shampoo, my hair needed a lot of TLC due to the hot weather the UK had in the summer. I had thought I might need a richer conditioner to get rid of the crunchy patch of hair, but I didn’t. I would use this in the shower, wash my hair twice with the shampoo then apply lots of conditioner. Wash my face and body then wash the conditioner out – leaving the conditioner on my hair for at least ten minutes before rinsing it off. My hair once I had left it to dry naturally was more manageable and softer. The grey hairs were shiny and whiter, my natural brunette hair had thmore...e lovely coppery tones in it. In other words, my hair didn’t look flat or lifeless.
During the lovely hot weather that the UK had in the summer, my poor hair suffered. I had a dry patch, which felt crunchy and didn’t behave itself. I bought this shampoo as I wanted something that would be moisturising and conditioning. My hair loves this shampoo within one shampoo the crunchy dry patch had improved. After two uses of this, it disappeared never to turn. My hair feels soft, manageable and shiny. Even my grey hair is shiny. I have also managed to get two weeks before I need to wash my hair.
My hubby and I have used two other companies’ versions of Glycolic Acid Toner – Pixi and Marks & Spencer. This product has a higher percentage of Glycolic Acid than the others we have used. I have noticed there is a stronger tingly sensation when using this, but my hubby hasn’t. We use it three times a week. I have noticed that my skin looks and feels healthier, my make-up goes on evenly and lasts longer. My hubby suffers from pimples and using this has helped reduce the severity and the duration of the pimple. He has also noticed that his oil production is more under control when using more...this regularly.
My hubby and I have been using Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, he had read an article in a newspaper and wanted to try it. This has a fresh smell and both of us like it. It cleanses the skin well and copes brilliantly with Benefit Roller Lash, it removes it without much rubbing. I would hold the cotton pad to my eye for a few seconds before gently swiping it away. There is no residue or stickiness, the fragrance doesn’t last long on the skin once the water is swiped over the skin. We use both sides of the cotton pad remembering to wipe behind our ears.
Think we will be buying more of imore...t and other products from their range.
I use this product at least twice a week when I am not using Glycolic Acid or a Retinol. The smell at first put me off. I have noticed that my rosy red cheeks are not as red as they have been. My skin doesn’t seem to be misbehaving at the time of the month which I get the occasional spot. This absorbs into the skin easily and has enough slip to allow you to spend time massaging it in if you use facial massage to tone your skin like I do. The texture of my skin has also improved I don’t get the sore bumps on my chin. I believe everyone should have a form of Rose Hip Oil in the skincare armore...senal and I have tried the Dr Botanical’s one too. People are commenting on how my skin looks, the health of my skin has improved.
This is a great all year-round lip protection. It nourishes and hydrates the lip area. This has no colour so both males and females can wear it. I have been wearing it daily, and re-applying as necessary, slightly over the lips to include the areas that have wrinkles. I didn’t realise that the lip area needed protection until using this product during the hot weather the UK has been having recently. My lips weren’t peeling or dry and sore at the end of the day. It will also provide protection for my lips in the winter and when the UK has its typical summer weather of rain. This product more...has become part of my basic make-up routine as my lips look smoother and softer since using it.
I know that some people will use it this product whatever the weather, but I used this only when the weather here in the UK was really hot. It is easy to apply to the face, neck and body. It doesn’t leave a white residue on the skin like some can do. The lotion is absorbed into the skin easily leaving no residue. When I perspired it didn’t run into my eyes and make them sting like others have. I applied this once I had cleaned my skin before putting on any serums and moisturiser. If you want to apply make-up, you can. Just wait ten or fifteen minutes after applying the lotion before conmore...tinuing with your normal skincare and make-up routine. It didn’t affect how my foundation sat on my skin. I think I have found my every day sunscreen whether the weather is hot or cold.
When I opened the tube, I expected to see a rich cream that was strawberry milkshake pink. It is white and a light cream. This is an overnight mask that must be applied to clean dry skin, I didn’t apply any other serums or moisturisers. Once my skin had dried after cleansing, I applied a thin layer of the product starting at my décolleté in an upward circular motion. Moving up my neck not forgetting to apply it to the back of my neck then my face avoiding my eye area. In the hot weather that England has been having it was lovely to apply a cream that is cooling on the skin. When I woke umore...p the next morning there was no residue just youthful looking skin. After cleansing I noticed that my skin around the jaw area looked less slack. It is recommended to use 2 or 3 nights a week. I would apply this product on consecutive nights if you have an event coming up. If not, then leave at least a night in between applications.
