I have been using this product for probably over 10 years! As far as I'm concerned, the number speaks for itself. This toner (or "Deep Cleansing Lotion" as it's called in the UK) is fantastic and will last you a very long time. How do you use this? Well, I take a cotton round and a medium squirt of the toner and just go to town on my face. Ever had any doubts as to whether this stuff is actually working? Just look at the pad. No matter how clean you thought your face was, you will be sadly mistaken. The grime that comes off your skin is very satisfying, and it is recommended to repeat the process until the cotton round comes back clean. This toner tightens the pores, giving your skin a smoothr appearance but also protecting it from imposing bacteria. I like to use this product most days, but mainly when I have pretty bad breakouts and it seems to clear them up after a couple of days of use, leaving my skin noticeably clearer. It does have a bit of a funky chemical smell, but that doesn't really bother me in the slightest, as it smells clean. Will always repurchase and for the price, it's worth a try.
I don't know how effective this product really is, but I sure know that I love the sensation it gives. The applicator is adorable, I must say, looking like a tiny iron that's going to magically iron all of my eye bags and troubles away. The iron is made of some sort of metal, of course, meaning it's cold to the touch and feels super refreshing and satisfying on the skin. I don't know what the cream actually does. Maybe it's light reflecting, maybe it's healing or anti-inflammatory, who knows? I just know that I enjoy this product and it brings me a little bit of joy on those tired days.
I'm not sure entirely what this product is intended for, but as its called "Eye Bright" I have several guesses. Personally, I like to use this pencil in my water line as it makes my eyes look bigger, more awake and looks great with my pale skin tone. This light pink eye pencil is creamy and opaque and glides on effortlessly.
My favorite mascara. I like this one because it keeps the eyelashes looking natural and separated and avoids the dreaded SPIDER LASH that we've all come to know so well. Now, when I say natural I don't mean unsubstantial. This mascara is nice and dark (I mean... it's black) and it makes your lashes stand out, adding definition, and length, as opposed to heaps of volume. It's also not bad for the bottom lashes, as the bristle brush isn't TOO big. As far as lasting power, this mascara doesn't smudge or flake on me throughout the day. I love it!
This is my all time favorite makeup sponge. Just run it under the tap until it fully expands and absorbs a ton of water, then squeeze it out until the sponge is no more than damp. This will stop the sponge eating your face products. Now, this is where the magic begins. Use it for primer, for foundation, for concealer and for other cream products such as highlighter, blush, bronzer and even cream face paint. The finish will be FLAWLESS every time. I will never use a brush to apply my foundation again (if I can help it). To wash your sponge on an every day basis, just run under warm water and add some liquid hand soap, squeeze and few times and rinse out all of the old makeup. For a more deep clean, just toss it in the washer (tried and tested). Absolutely incredible and a holy grail of mine, for sure!
Crest (or Oral B as we call it in the UK) makes some of the greatest products for whiter teeth, ESPECIALLY this toothpaste. I have tried and love the whitening strips, but they can be harsh and highly increase the sensitivity of your teeth and gums. The beauty of this toothpaste is that it's super effective but without the discomfort. It does what it says on the tin (or the tube as the case may be). Many toothpastes claim to whiten your teeth but this one REALLY does. Whether you're using the toothpaste alone or as a follow up to a whitening strip binge, this product will always deliver great results. It works!
This foundation is beautiful. Not only does it smell quite good (am I the only one who thinks that ,or...?), but the finish offers a beautiful dewy appearance on the skin, making you look radiant and fresh faced, not cakey and flat (I never thought much to matte foundations). The foundation is easy to apply (my personal favorite is a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge) and doesn't feel too heavy on the skin. I would recommend this product for the spring/ summer time. The only problem I have with this foundation is the colour range. They do have several colours, yes, but if you're a pale MF much like myself, you will struggle to find a shade that isn't too dark (even the lightest shade they offer is too orange for me) BUT HEY, there's nothing new there.
I own a TON of Lime Crime Velvetines and I can safely say that they are my ALL TIME FAVOURITE liquid lipsticks. The formula is IMMACULATE. They go on very easily and smoothly with the help of the doe foot applicator (my personal favorite type), and the creamy formula covers amazingly after only one coat. Darker colours such as Salem may take a couple, but that's to be expected with deeper shades. They don't feel cakey or particularly drying on the lips (considering they are a flat liquid to matte lipstick). In fact, they are very comfortable to wear. The staying power on these products is awesome. Depending on your eating habits, these lipsticks can last literally hours and don't require much of a touch up at all. Not to mention the smell is DREAMY (they smell like vanilla cake mmm ^_^)
The scent of this stuff is just heavenly to me. It smells so fresh and leaves you feeling light and airy and full of life. Fortunately for me, I don't suffer from body odour, so I can't comment too greatly on how well this product masks/ distinguishes the smell of sweat. I use this antiperspirant to make myself smell great, as cucumber is one of my all time favorite scents.
