Best of September 2010

Oh dear, I'm sorry it's so late, but better late than never, right?


I am still loving the Vichy tri-active anti-imperfections hydrating care; it's a perfect base for make-up and keeps the redness in my skin at bay.  The moisturiser also hydrates my skin and is light enough to wear every day.  Overall a winner for me, if it wasn't so expensive I would purchase this myself.  Thank you to the people who sent me it!

DSC06004 Bio Oil - I am even more of a believer than before.  My scars are fading slowly yet surely; this acts as a great pre-moisturiser and wonderful as a night moisturiser.  As well as this, it's fantastic to use with the at-home face steamer and lovely for other parts of the body.  I know a lot of people are sceptical about this product but those who have loved this product will never ever stray from it.  Having used it consistently day in, night out since June, I would be sure to say it's made a huge impact on my skin.


Rimmels' lastest mascara offering is a winner for sure.  The Lash Accelerator has cool packaging and a really great formula.  Similar to Maybelline's Lash Stiletto, the glossy and thin formula creates long and intense lashes helping out even those who were handed the tiny lashes at birth.  Overall a lot better than I expected.  I prefer this over Maybelline's Lash Stiletto as it gives overall fuller lashes and the wand is much more user friendly. 



The blusher I have been using a lot of recently is MAC's Springsheen blusher.  This is an old favourite and I come back to this time and time again.  It has the perfect balance of pink and peach, with a wonderful yet subtle golden hue that helps illuminate the face perfectly.  I use this a lot in the Autumn months but it's extra special during Christmas.


One of my favourite lipstick lines has to be Revlon's Matte collection.  A fabulous Autumn colour is 003 Mauve it over which is nude pink/brown colour.  It can look fresh or glamorous depending on the rest of your make-up.  It's a winner of a colour because it's so versatile. 



Thank you Garnier for sending over this face wash.  This was given to me a long time ago but I didn't use it because the pump broke in the mail.  As well as this, I have always been used to using their Fresh Essentials line and felt that Soft Essentials may not be right for my skin.  However it's proven to be a great face wash, cleansing off all make-up and leaving zero residue on my face.  It does not leave my skin dry or tender.  If I decide that there is nothing better on the market in this price range, I will definitely repurchase this.



I am really big on exfoliating my face and I've been using St Ive's Microdermabrasion scrub for over a month now.  It's gentle yet effective and leaves my skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated.  It contains chamomile which soothes and it smells lovely.  I originally picked this out for my Mum and she has been loving it too.  I am still using St Ive's Apricot Scrub for break-out phases but when my skin is not being a pain, this is a good, everyday product to use. 


I am loving The Body Shop's Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter!  It's on par with my previous favourite, Botanic's Hair Mask, but it feels richer and smells a bit better (not that Botanic's smelt bad!).  It leaves my hair feeling strong and conditioned and that's all I really ask for.  I will keep using this (I apply this every other time I wash my hair) until I run out and if I find there is no drastic difference, I may go back to the Botanic's as it's half the price and twice the size.  Overall, it's a great product for my hair and if you haven't tried it out, I do recommend you give it a go.

DSC06011 Last but not least, I have to tell you about The Body Shop's Moringa body scrub.  I did not expect to like this as much as I do but having tried a few of their fruit scrubs and olive scrub, I find that this floral Moringa scrub is my favourite.  It wakes you up as well as perks up my mood, great to energise in the morning or even to wind down in the evening.  The floral smell is not too over-powering and makes me feel really feminine (and for some reason, very English).  I will definitely repurchase this baby girl!

Thanks everyone, I shall be back for some more reviews soon.

Have you tried any of the above?
