Anneka F.'s (anneka) Beauty Product Reviews
Love this - I've had such a hard time finding a good dry shampoo that works for me. The one I was using - although very good, never lasted very long. This one is going to last me so long! It smells good too, and I like that it isn't in an aerosol can like my last one. Easy to use - does an excellent job + adds a lot of volume too which I love because I have very flat hair.
I was a little hesitant about buying this product, so I just got the small size - but am so glad I got it, I want more! It exfoliates my body SO well, I use it all over, but pay extra attention to my thighs, hips and bum. I've never been a fan of moisturizing my whole body after a shower, I just can't be bothered or don't have the time, but this moisturizes as well - when you get out of the shower and dry off, your skin feels so soft because of the shea butter in it. Definitely will be rebuying this.
I'd read a lot about this online and couldn't wait to try it - it smells AMAZING. I've been using it about 2 weeks now, on my cuticles, hands, elbows and heels. It's made such a huge difference - my elbows aren't nearly as dry as they used to be and because of the citrus in this, the dull parts of my skin are less discoloured and much brighter now, exactly what I wanted. I absolutely adore this. It's so thick and creamy too, it's going to last so long which is fantastic - well worth the money.
I hope one day they can find a way to make this product vegan though.
This was a very impulse buy for me - the smell just captured me instantly. I love the colour, it's so cute. I got about 4 uses out of one bar - it's amazing how bubbly your bath gets just with a quarter of one of these! How does that even work! I love it. It colours the water too which is cute. The smell is so calming, it makes my bath experience so wonderful. I also found the bubbles hung around in my bath a lot longer than other bubbles I've tried.
I was so looking forward to this product - the idea of it is fantastic! Things I loved: the smell, the ease of use, how travel friendly it is, and how much it lathered up.
Things I didn't love: my hair felt kind of matty afterwards, didn't look very shiny compared to usual. =[
So - although it didn't work for my hair, I don't think it's a complete write off. It works for others and is a fantastic all round product. And I'm still willing to try other Lush shampoo bars.
Oh I absolutely love this blush. Yes, it's a bit pricey, but seriously, that bottle will last you forever. I only need the tiniest amount to give me the perfect glow on my cheeks. Its shimmery and glowy - but not glittery, phew. It's really healthy looking. SO easy to blend with fingers, thats how I get the best result. Easy to build upon and doesn't move the makeup underneath.
Also, really nice ingredients and doesn't make me break out or clog my pores.
Absolutely love this mascara. It gives such a beautiful finish for my lashes. Makes them incredibly long looking, longer and fuller than any other mascara has ever done. And it's reasonably priced <3 The brush is really big which contributes to lengthening and volumizing lashes. Never found that it clumped either - the reason for the loss of half a star is it dries out semi quickly. Not the end of the world, but I think if it was in a better tube it wouldn't dry out as quick.
Best cleanser ever.
I can't believe this doesn't have reviews yet! This is the best cleanser ever. It literally gets EVERY single trace of makeup off - it's also a toner and exfoliant! So saves you extra steps - which I love because at night, I just cannot be bothered with the whole routine. It was really moisturizing on my skin, seriously helps clear my congestion - definitely recommend this if you suffer from congestion also.
One of my top favourite cleansers/makeup removers BY FAR. This one is reasonably priced - it's a really soft oil. A lot of makeup removers irritate my eyes, but not this one. So I love using this at night to get all my makeup off quickly. It doesn't break me out either, thankfully - even though it's an oil. In fact it helps keep my skin clear because it cleans it SO well. I can't even believe how good it cleans my skin. It's also really moisturizing.
Absolutely love this, cannot be without it.
The best rosewater around.
I cannot talk this up enough. I mean, it's EVEN aesthetically pleasing! So simple and gorgeous. It smells divine (of course!). SO refreshing like you wouldn't believe - I love using it first thing when I get to work or throughout the day if I need a pick me up - helps set my makeup too and keep it glowing. But it also makes a nice, gentle toner for me as I'm not really a big toner fan.
