I'm loving...

Bioderma Sensibio Micellaire 
Rimmel Accelerator Mascara*
Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation
MAC Studio Finish Concealer (my shade is NC20)
Seche Vite fast dry top coat
Pantene 24 hour Leave in Conditioner mousse for Fine Hair

I don't know why, but i didn't want to like Bioderma's Micelle Solution. I think because i didn't want to copy so many other bloggers opinions. But this is jolly good stuff. I only use this to remove my eye makeup. I do this by holding a small cotton pad soaked in the solution over my eye for a few seconds to give the stuff a chance to work, then i wipe away. It removes everything, even waterproof mascara. It's the best eye makeup remover i've ever tried. It is doesn't irritate my eyes at all. It's as gentle as normal tap water.
I have a stock pile of other brands of Micelle water to test and i shall post detailed reviews once i have the chance to use them. 

MAC's Studio Finish concealer is the best heavy concealer that covers everything, that i own. I have very dark purple circles and this covers them in an instant. The best part is that only a small amount of product is needed. I've owned and used this for around 8 months and used this daily and it's still half full. It's a deep pot of product so you get a lot for your money. 
It is a thick cream and it might crease on ladies who have severe wrinkles, but i have slight wrinkles in the under eye area and it doesn't crease at all.

PitRok deodrant. Bodily odour, everyone gets it at some point. I have decided that Non Parapen products around the breast area can't do any harm as i had a lump recently that thankfully was due to hormonal changes, but i'm now extra paranoid. Cancer Research can give you more information HERE 
I don't normally get enough protection with other Roll On Deodrants but this once is different and i don't get any nasty wiffy armpits all day, plus i love the smell of the product.

Seche Vite, some love it, some hate it. I decided to try for myself when had it for sale for £5.50 recently. I love it. 
I didn't see how normal nail polish could get any more glossy than it already got. I didn't see the need for topcoats at all. But i have now seen the light!
Seche Vite gives another dimension of gloss to the nails. Super Gloss.
It also seems to give the nail a total level finish and it does dry super fast. Faster than any nail polish that claims to dry at top speed. Every time i've use it, the nail only shows wear directly at the tip and i've found that polish does last longer when i apply it.

I used to be so upset that i spent a small pocket of notes on Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua as it used to shift all over my face and it wouldn't last long without looking greasy. My skin condition must have changed as now i looks and feels great on my face.
I think the fact that the cold weather, wind and central heating has made my skin alot drier. Now it gives my ideal level of coverage and moisturises without causing any greasiness.
If you do suffer from dry skin i would certainly ask for a tester of this product before you buy as it could be perfect for you.

Vichy Idealia Pro* was given to me as i'm a product tester for
I've just got around to try it and i've been using nothing else but this as a moisturiser, day and night.
It feels so silky when i apply and it smells so good. Importantly it's smoothing my complexion and saving my skin after a rotten virus which has left me with blotches and dry areas. I have age spots under my eye around my cheek bone, they haven't gone, but i feel that my skin tone has evened out more than if i hadn't used this at all.

Pantene leave in conditioner mousse for fine hair. I use this on my daughters long, fine and curly hair. It's brilliant stuff as it doesn't put any weight into the hair but makes the hair so easy to brush. When Robyn, my little girl likes to wear her hair down at the weekends i find her hair doesn't tangle and frizz up when this is used. It even defines her curls somewhat, which i don't normally achieve without a curl cream.

Rimmel Accelerator Mascara* is a nice surprise as every single other Rimmel mascara i've bought has dried out within a couple of weeks and/or takes more than two layers to make my lashes look like they have any mascara on them at all. Two layers of this and i have thick lashes. It is true black, not dull grey the brush gets right down to the root of the lashes. Good stuff.

Sally Hansen cuticle Remover gel. This was found in TKMaxx and bought not knowing if i needed to remove any cuticles but i now see how much neater my nail polish looks now i use this every time i have a manicure. It's super easy and quick to use. I rub a small amount around each cuticle, wait a mintute and personally i use a nail brush to scrub the area than i wash my hands as normal. Bob's yer ancle, fancy's yer father...neat nails.


  1. I have heard so much positive stuff about the bioderma makeup remover, I think I shall be trying some myself soon :) Great post!x

    1. Thank you so much. I think to my knowledge Bioderma works out the cheapest (super gentle) micellar/micheller? water per ml out there. When i finish my stash of others to test i'll go back to this.
      I bought mine in a set of two 250ml bottles from Ebay. It was the cheapest place i could find it.

      Thanks for commenting.
