LUSH: Skin’s Shangri LA Moisturiser

Suitable for all skin types, this face cream promises to refresh and protect the skin. Wheatgrass, jojoba oil and aloe vera ensured my skin was soft, smooth and with a youthful glow. The smell reminded me of playdo – which I loved. My only pitfall was that it didn’t help the redness in my skin tone – it made it a little more noticeable when first applied. You only need to apply a small amount of this product otherwise it will look too greasy. Rating: 3/5


MOROCCANOIL: Moisture Repair Conditioner

I love Moroccanoil styling products which give us mere mortals A-list worthy shiny hair. My only disappointment in the shampoo was that it didn’t lather up well but the conditioner gave me hair with amazing shine and healthy looking hair. Watch the amount you put on your hair as it can make it look greasy. Rating: 3/5



LUSH: Sweet Lips Lip Scrub

LOVE the smell of this product – has a sweet vanilla & chocolate aroma. You only need a small amount to scrub your lips smooth. Although it didn’t get rid  of all my dry, chapped skin, after continued use I did notice a difference. Rating: 4/5

TOPSHOP: Foundation Brush

The bristles are very soft and even though the brush is smaller than my previous brushes, it still provided me with a great even coverage when I applied my foundation with it. Rating: 4/5





ESTEE LAUDER: Bronze Goddess Sea Star Bronzing Blush

Everything about this product is divine; the packaging, the bronzer (a light bronzer with a sea star shaped pink blush in the middle) and the results – sun-kissed, glowing, shimmering cheeks. Apply to hairline and collarbone also. Rating: 5/5

  1. I was very impressed with the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (, enough so that I have continued to use the product daily as part of my skin care routine after the test period. It’s a luxury purchase to be sure, but this is one of the best products that can really make a significant difference in your skin, and so worth every penny.

    I applied the treatment each morning and evening after cleansing my skin and before moisturizer/primer and then makeup. Within just a few days I could see that my skin was much more supple and smooth – particularly in the t-zone. After about two weeks, I loved the beautiful glow my skin had – even without makeup.
