I suffer from pretty bad hay fever throughout the summer and one symptom I have is itchy skin. I get itchy patches on my chest and arms and also have extremely itchy eyes. Recently, I was sent some Cardiospermum Gel from Skin Shop to try out. I have got both the one designed specifically for…

Sampar Velvet Cleansing Milk

Sampar Velvet Cleansing Milk

The Velvet Cleansing Milk is my first foray into the Sampar range. I love a good cleanser so was excited to try this one and I although it has some flaws, I do really like it. The texture of the cleanser is thick and smooth and it has a wonderful smell of roses. It leaves…

Dr Renaud Mango Hand and Nail Cream

Dr Renaud Mango Hand and Nail Cream

My newest hand cream is the Dr Renaud Mango Hand and Nail Cream. I am not too fussed on the packaging and I don’t think I would have given this a second glance if I hadn’t have tried, and been impressed by, other Dr Renaud products. As is happens, this hand cream is fantastic. It…

Bourjois Queen Attitude Mascara

Bourjois Queen Attitude Mascara

I have stuck to the same mascara for quite a while now, No7 Extreme Length. I love it, but last time I was in Boots I decided to mix it up and try a new mascara. After some deliberation, I settled on the Bourjois Queen Attitude which promises volume and length. I have some other…

Grace Cole Fruity Lip Balms

Grace Cole Fruity Lip Balms

These gorgeous Grace Cole lip balms are the best ones I have used in a long time. The formula reminds me of Vaseline so they are really quick and easy to apply and are lovely and moisturising. But the best thing about them is the smell. Especially the coconut and lime – I can’t get…

Yves Rocher Hair Repair Oil

Yves Rocher Hair Repair Oil

I am not really sure what to make of the Yves Rocher Hair Repair Oil. You are supposed to apply it to dry hair and leave to sink in for 10 minutes before shampooing as usual. I have been reading lots recently about the new trend for conditioning your hair before shampooing so I guess…
