I have been using this Sheila’s Nourishing Face Cream for Normal skin, for a few weeks now, and I like it. It is all I thought it would be and more.

Here is the product description:

A Light silky non-greasy face cream, perfect for youthful & normal skin. This is a delightfully light cream which is slowly absorbed and ideal for younger skins making it a perfect base under makeup as well as a nourishing night cream.

CONS

None. It is a lovely cream. Definitely worth trying.

 

I mentioned in the Summer is Here post, that I have started using a hair removal cream for the first time, and it has been magical. Well, say hello to Veet Hair Removal Cream for Sensitive skin.

Here is what Veet has to say about this product:

While removing hair effectively, New Veet Hair Removal Cream not only hydrates your skin for up to 24 hours, but its new fragrance technology also ensures that there is no lingering malodour.

Veet Hair Removal Cream works close to the root even on short hair, giving you smoothness for up to a week.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. It performs brilliantly. I have used this hair removal cream on my underarms and legs and it took off all the hairs within 10 minutes.
  2. It is so easy to use. Just apply the cream to the area with the curved part of the spatula, and spread evenly to fully coat the hair. Then rinse off thoroughly and dry after 10 minutes.
  3. It is easily accessible. It can be found in Boots, Asda, Waitrose, Tesco and many other stores.
  4. It is great for sensitive skin.
  5. It can be used on underarms, bikini line, arms and legs.
  6. It is super affordable at £4 in most stores.

CONS

None. I can’t fault this product. It is a lot better than shaving, and it leaves the skin feeling and looking very smooth. I can’t recommend it enough.

What do you think of both products? Have you tried any of them before?

Product Review: Dermalogica Super Rich Repair Moisturiser & Skinperfect Primer

Dermalogica Age Smart Products Image

If you have been reading this blog for a while now, then you will know how obsessed I am with Dermalogica products. I have reviewed a few of them now, and I still have many more on my wish list. Dermalogica products can do no wrong in my eyes. They are simply perfect. And the Super Rich Repair & the Skinperfect Primer are the best. I have used both products for weeks now, and I can honestly testify to their goodness in my life, hahaha.

Let me dissect them one by one, starting with the Super Rich Repair Mosituriser.

Here is what Dermalogica has to say about this product :

Dermalogica’s richest moisturiser! Cold and dry environmental conditions can leave skin dry and sore, particularly in winter. For an instant boost, use this super-concentrated, heavyweight cream. It moisturises, soothes, protects and fights inflammation, relieving any irritation and giving your skin its healthy glow back.

Apply to face and neck with light, upward strokes. Wait for cream to absorb before applying additional products. Use once or twice daily.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. I love the packaging. It is compact and comes in a pump, which I find easy to use.
  2. It smells amazing.
  3. I apply it once a day, at night, before applying my Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair, and my skin feels super smooth and moisturised in the morning.
  4. It is a very rich mosituriser. It absorbs quickly and reduces fine lines.
  5. It is fantastic for dry and dehydrated skin.

 

CONS

None. It is a fantastic night mosituriser. It currently retails at £62.85, but you can grab it on sale at Beautifully Gorgeous for £52.54.

 

Dermalogica Skinperfect Primer Image

 

I have heard about the Dermalogica Skinperfect Primer from one of my lovely readers – Kefkat. She mentioned she was a fan of Dermalogica primer, so I decided to try it.

Here is what Dermalogica has to say about this primer:

This best-selling two-in-one primer not only prepares your skin for make-up application but also helps protect it from harmful UVA and UVB sunlight. Specially formulated to enhance your skin’s overall health, it smooths away fine lines and leaves skin looking radiant and full of luminosity.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. It is a two-in-one product, primer and sun protection. It can be worn before applying makeup or alone.
  2. I apply this primer on top of my mosituriser before applying makeup. My makeup stays in place all day thanks to this primer.
  3. It reduces the appearance of fine lines.
  4. It is light weight, and leaves my skin feeling smooth.
  5. My foundation just glides through once the primer has been applied.

CONS

None as you would have guessed. This primer is the TRUTH!

It currently retails for £38.80, but you can get one on sale at Beautifully Gorgeous for £31.77.

 

I recommend both products. They are truly amazing. You should try them. Links to the products are above, if you want to take a further look.

Product Review: MAC Gently Off Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

Product Review MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover Image

I got my hands on this MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover some weeks ago, and I have used it quite a few times now. If you have been reading my product reviews posts, you will know all about my obsession with makeup remover products, and how I struggle to find the ones that do the job quickly and effectively. Well, purchasing this product was for me to see if the almighty MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover, would do the job.

But I made a huge mistake. I did not read the product description correctly before purchasing. I thought it would be great for the entire face as well but it is not. It is mainly for the eyes and the lips. So learn from my mistake, and go through the entire product description twice before purchasing.

Here is what MAC has to say about this makeup remover:

Oil and water do mix, for twice the impact – just shake. A dual-phase, easy-does-it formula that sweeps off even tenacious waterproof mascara and lip colour. Absolutely gentle; suitable for all skin types. It comes with soothing cucumber extract and Damascus Rose flower water to refresh. No need to rinse.

 

MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover

 

Here are my thoughts on this product:

PROS

  1. I love the coral colour. It looks amazing on my white dressing table.
  2. It is a very gentle product. So no stings at all, even if a tiny bit gets into your eyes.
  3. It smells amazing.
  4. It takes off eye makeup after a few applications depending on how heavy your eye makeup was. It also wipes off any lip makeup with little effort.
  5. It is great for all skin types.
  6. Many departmental stores stock MAC products, so they are easy to find both online and in stores.

CONS

  1. You have to remember to shake it before using it, so the oil and water can mix.
  2. It is expensive at £16 for a 100ml bottle, for just wiping makeup off the eyes and lips. It is more budget friendly to go for a face wash or cleanser that will wipe off the entire face.
  3. The packaging like the MAC Fix+ is quite flimsy. It is very difficult to get it open. I think I should just stop purchasing MAC products that come in this push-twist bottle. I find them hard work.

Overall, I would not recommend this product. If I read the product description properly, I won’t have bought it. I won’t be buying this particular product again but I am still crazily in love with MAC.
