Collection - Deluxe Lipsticks and Swatches

£3.99/ 5g
Made in China
Tailored for all skin types and skin tones.

5 Shades of retro inspired lipstick. Prohibition, Talullah, Charleston, Speakeasy and Silent Movie.
Enriched with a 70% blend of lip conditioners, antioxidants and hydrating ingredients including Shea Butter, Avocado Oil and Vitamin E for a lip of luxuary.

The colours I chose were a pink (Speakeasy) and a deep red (Prohibition). See pictures above for swatches.

Hydrating, non-drying, true colours that did not bleed too badly; lasting power was very impressive and best of all very good value for money. Limited on colour range but at the same time they have a nude, red, pink, a wine colour and a brown so a colour for any taste. I enjoyed the products and I would recommend and repurchase.

The Body Shop - Seaweed Mattifying Moisture Lotion

£11.00/ 50ml 
Made in the USA.
Tailored for combination skin.

This lightweight moisturising lotion hydrates, controls excess oil and combats shine.
  • Lightweight moisture
  • Rebalances oil
  • Combats shine to give a beautiful matte finish.
  • SPF 15 for UVA/UVB protection

It does control shine throughout the day I would say for a good 7 hours without having to use blotting paper or powder. It didn't cause any blocked pores or cause me to breakout, and it's oil free; so massive thumbs up from me. My skin felt soft and protected. I adore this moisture lotion, thinner than the cream so a little easier to work with and to apply, you also use less of this than you do the cream version.
I like the smell, it's very mild and doesn't linger on the face, which is always nice.

If you have oily skin, I would highly recommend trying this if you are looking for hours of matte finish. A beautiful, softening, protecting, moisture lotion that lasts for a very long time and great value for money.
I will repurchase this lotion, without a doubt.

Ghost Fragrance

Eau De Toilette.
Fragrance Family - Floral.
Top Notes - Rose & Ambrette Seeds.
Heart Notes - Hibiscus, Apricot, Jasmine.
Base Notes - Amber, Incense, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Musk.
Feel - Seductive, sensual and feminine.

From it's first launch I have been it's biggest fan and will continue to be so until I am forced to find a new day scent.

Rosepetals, mellow hibiscus and musk give it character, subtly combined jasmine, warm incense and spicy sandalwood dominate with gentleness, while vanilla, musk, apricot and amber provide a seductive quality.
Simply beautiful.
A timeless, feminine, soft perfume.

La Roche Posay - Effaclar A.I, Targeted Breakout Corrector

£9.50/ 15ml   
Made in France.
Tailored for oily, imperfection prone skin.

An intensive treatment that purges imperfections in depth to accelerate their resorption and prevent residual skin scarring.
Niacinamide: Stops the development of a breakout.
Piroctone Olamine/ Glycacil combination: Purifies the bacterial activity to reabsorb skin imperfections.
Micro-Exfoliating LHA/ Repairing Thermal Spring Water: Activates the skins regeneration process.
Paraben free and non comedogenic.

I have adult acne and I have tried alot of products that are said to zap zits; (gels, patches, creams, prescription only treatments etc). I try everything I see that aids in the healing process of spots. I saw this when I was buying the Effaclar Duo and thought 'it's worth a try'.
I've been using this for over a month now and I have seen a difference in the marking that is normally left behind after the spots go. I usually am left with red dots that tend to stick around for months.
I didn't see a difference in the time it took for the spot to go, it didn't speed up the process of eliminating the spots and I would say it did very little to break down the blemish. However, I was left with minimal scarring after the spot had cleared and the marking was gone in a matter of weeks.
It says you can use this under makeup, however, I would avoid doing so as the formula seems to become flaky looking once dry. I use this prior to bed.

I like the texture of the formula and the minimised scarring post-spot, if you have trouble with acne scarring I would highly recommend this corrector. It's valuable for flawless skin once the blemishes have gone. This could work brilliantly on other types of acne, I have only tested it on my own skin.
Overall, I enjoy this product. I would repurchase this to reduce my acne scarring.

Sunday Special

My favourite product this week, I really enjoyed every bathing moment with this shower gel. I adore the smell, it's soft, romantic and addictive. It made my skin baby soft and made it smell great for hours. It's one that I have already repurchased and I will be stocking up on these before they stop selling them, as this shower gel is the Valentine's Day - Limited Edition.
I would recommend this everyone. If you would like to know more about the product, you can see my full review by clicking here.

Lush - Tea Tree Water

£3. 95 - 100g/ £7.50 - 250g
Made in England.
Suitable for Vegans.
Tailored for oily/ spot prone skin.
A toner water, made with Tea tree and Grapefruit; to keep skin clear and refreshed.

A toner that comes to the aid of skin that has emergencies.
Tea tree is antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial; it will help keep away the bacteria that causes spots.
Grapefruit is rich in vitamins and is also lightly astringent on the skin.
Juniperberry is an antiseptic and will also help to stimulate the skin.
Use any time of the day to keep skin refreshed, or to remove traces of makeup.
Ideal for oily and/ or spot prone skin.

I have been having problems fighting acne since the weather turned cold and my friend (who has used this product for over a year) recommended trying this toner to help the problem.
With nothing to lose, I picked one up from Lush and included it into my daily skin care routine; I am more than a little impressed, I am amazed!
I always thought Tea tree would be a little too powerful on my skin. This seems gentle enough for everyday use and my acne has started to clear up with no sign of new blemishes appearing.
I have oily skin and the toner seems to remove excess oils without stripping the skin through harsh chemicals or alcohol. The scent is mild and soothing, it caused no redness, irritation or drying of the skin. It removed the last remnants of makeup left on the skin after cleansing that had been missed and is also gentle enough around the eye area.

Overall, a great gentle toner; fights acne, usable daily, no issues to skin and great value for money. If you are trying to battle breakouts or have excess oil this is a toner I would highly recommend trying.

Johnson's Face Care - Gentle Eye Makeup Removal Pads

£3.29/ 30 pads
Made in the UK
Tailored for all skin types.
Eye Make Up Removal Pads gently cleanse eyes of make-up, even waterproof mascara.

The formula contains pro-vitamin B5 to condition eyelashes and gentle lotion to care for the sensitive eye area. Eyes are left beautifully clean and make-up free, without the oily residue. Opthalmologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin.

I have tried a few items from this brand before and have quite enjoyed them. However, this product did not meet that enjoyed list.
I felt the pads themselves were dry/ had very little product on them. I dropped a little water on them to get them at least moist. On using them I left one pad on each eye (non-waterproof mascara) for over a minute, then gentle wiggled them downwards (this is how I usually remove my eye makeup) and the results was disappointing. Only a little product came away with the cotton rounds, most was still on my eye.
The only way these worked was rubbing the eye makeup off quite roughly, which to me personally is not the way to remove something from an extremely gentle area.

These were cheap, I loved the packaging, the fragrance was mild and lovely and I enjoy the brands other products. Perhaps I got an old stock item and it had dried up too much, but I don't think I will be running out to repurchase them anytime soon.

L'Oreal - Skin Perfection, Purifying Micellar Solution

£4.99/ 200ml  
Made in Germany.
Tailored for all skin types, even sensitive.
As gentle as water on your skin but acts like a make-up remover, toner and skin soother all in one.

A cleanser for face eyes and lips, suitable for sensitive skin. Dissolves make-up, unclogs pores and removes impurities and tones and soothes the skin.
Swiftly dissolving all traces of make-up, the 'micellar' solution acts like a purifying magnet on the skin's surface to capture and draw out excess oil and impurities rather than spreading them around your face like some wipes can.
Hypo-allergenic. No Alcohol. No perfume. Dermatologically tested.

I have used my fair share of micellar solutions over the past few years; easy to use, fast makeup removal, no water needed.
An essential part of any makeup artists kit. This on cotton wool, in my opinion, is far better than any wipes, it's also more gentle, pulls the skin less and isn't as drying and harsh on the skin.
This impressed me, it gets the job done correctly, quickly and brilliantly with no residue left on the skin.
It contains very similar ingredients to Bioderma, but at a fraction of the price.
It works brilliant on people with very sensitive skin, no redness or drying to the skin at all. I always restock my kit with this cheaper dupe now and I highly recommend trying it out for yourself if you haven't already done so.

Brilliant value for money, high performance, suitable for even the most sensitive skin, gentle and unclogs pores, even after the heaviest of makeup coverage. Massive thumbs up!

Rouge Bunny Rouge - Devilish Nectar, Lip Potion

£19.89/ 3.5ml
Made in Italy.
Suitable for vegetarians.
Tailored for all skin types and tones.
Use to get full, plump, flushed lips; on it's own or over your favourite lip colour.

This shiny and fragrant gloss boosts your lips to make them fuller and flushed with colour. The secret is the blend of spicy essential oils they use; Clove, Chilli and Cardamom, which instantly start working to naturally increase blood-flow. Frequent re-applications will further intensify the effects.
Softness is aided by the use of Jojoba and the micro mica particles give it a beautiful shimmer that looks fresh and natural.

I have a full pouty lower lip and a very thin upper lip, so over the year's I have tried every single brand and product available to boost and/or plump my almost invisible top lip. I was expecting another gloss that looked pretty but didn't do a whole lot; like the various I have tested.

This WORKED and worked extremely well, I saw immediate visible results; my lips were pinker, fuller, and far more pouty than usual. Others also commented on my lips, which I smiled about all day.
This may not be everyones favourite as I know some people dislike the tingle sensation on their lips. I personally like the sensation, as I know it's working. This product definitely gives that tingle!
It smells spicy and exotic, but not overpowering. It's not too tacky or sticky. I enjoyed it both applied on it's own and over my lip colour. It didn't alter the colour of the lipstick at all but did give it a lovely shimmer.

I recommend this product to everyone, if you have sensitive lips and dislike the tingle sensation then this may not be a product suited to you. However, if you don't mind that, this lip potion is a miracle in a bottle for big, full, flushed lips.
I will be repurchasing this as soon as I start running low; it's become this year's must have beauty item for me.

The Body Shop - White Musk, Sumptuous Silk Shower Gel

I have been a huge fan of The Body Shop's, White Musk Perfume Oil for many year's. This year for Christmas I got a gift set including this shower gel; prior to this I had never tried anything from the White Musk body collection, (not quite sure why not?) so I was rather eager to try this.

On using the bottle up I was rather sad, I wanted more. I loved using this shower gel immensely, not just because it smelled amazing but it left my skin silky soft. It cut my moisturising time in half as I didn't need as much.

It has a very creamy, full lather from a pea sized amount, so a little goes a long way with this gel. Another great angle that I enjoyed was the soap-free aspect as I find soap far too drying for my skin. It cleanses well and removes greasy residue from the skin without stripping the natural oils.

It created a stronger base for my perfume; once I used the shower gel, the lotion and the perfume oil from the set, it created a beautiful layered fragrance of the iconic scent that lasted longer than wearing the perfume oil on it's own.

Will I be repurchasing this product - Yes.

Lush - Prince Charming Shower Gel

£4.65/ 100g      
£9.25/ 250g
£15.95/ 500g
Suitable for Vegans.
Tailored for all skin types.
A shower gel from the Valentine's Day 2014 collection - for beautiful smelling, silky soft skin.

With marshmallow root, fair trade vanilla and fresh pomegranate juice. Prince Charming will sweep you off your feet and carry you off into the sunset, leaving your skin silky soft and smelling lovely - the fragrance is made using a beautiful blend of grapefruit, sandalwood and geranium oils.

I would call this the Marmite shower gel, you either love it or hate it!
Personally, I adore it. The scent is sensual and seductive; perfect for a romantic Valentine evening.
To my nose, it smells like fresh pomegranates and vanilla, a fresh and sexy smell.
It lathers up very well, you need very little for a shower; I would say this will last a while meaning great value for your money.
I love the Lush stand point, natural ingredients, suitable for vegetarians, vegans or both. So another feel good factor is I know everything is fresh, natural and researched for me.
The formula is fantastic it leaves the skin nourished, baby soft and most of all cleansed. It works brilliant as a shampoo, it made my hair sparkle and ever so dreamy soft.

I have to give this a massive thumbs up. Great value for money, natural ingredients, smells great and doubles as a shampoo. Best of all it left my skin silky smooth.

Sunday Special...

Unfortunately, this Sunday I was unable to pick just one product which impressed me the most. 
Both of these blew me away equally, for different reasons. 
You can see the reviews for each of these here: 

Why was I so amazed with these? I have been using both products either daily or several times a week since I purchased them, you see results instantly and they are both brilliant value for money.
The night cream smells great, it sinks into the skin fast with no residue, it smooths out fine lines, restores moisture evenly, and in my case it actually helped soothe and remove patches of acne I had been suffering with.
The bath & shower oil is just an amazing bathing experience. A true luxury, I adore the scent, I loved how it made my skin soft and supple and how it relaxed me deeply. One of my new favourites from Aromatherapy Associates. 

I would highly recommend trying both of these products. Both equally deserving of the Sunday Special position.

Saturday 11 January 2014

Aromatherapy Associates - Inner Strength, Bath & Shower Oil

£39.00/ 55ml
Made in the UK.
Suitable for vegetarians.

  • Geranium - to balance emotionally and stimulate circulation.
A true luxury! You only need one little capful in a nice, warm bath to be in a world of divine bliss.
A beautiful blend, my new favourite from Aromatherapy Associates.
It makes your skin feel soft, supple and nourished; definite value for money when you see how many baths you get from one bottle and the results from using the oil in the bath is a true treat.
A little spa at home. I have repurchased this again and probably will for year's.

Friday 10 January 2014

Carmex - Vanilla Lip Balm.

£3.25/ 4.25g
Made in the USA.
Not suitable for vegetarians.
Tailored for all skin type's.
A balm that protects and nourishes the lips.

The Carmex ultra moisturising formula provides superior, enhanced hydration and makes even the driest lips soft and supple again. Extra gentle twist stick will not stress chapped or cracked lips, and offers a broad spectrum sun screen.

Glides on like a dream, ultra smooth; this extra moisturising balm makes your lips feel incredible!
The creamy flavour is unlike anything you have tried from Carmex before. It has a buttery, vanilla scent comparable to sugar cookies but with a minty undertone. Personally, I'm not a fan of the feeling of residue left from lip products; this leaves only a thin layer and unlike many on the market I have tested it is not as tacky or sticky.
Comes in a twist tube, so easy to use with no mess and no sticky finger. Contains an SPF15 and protects brilliantly against the wind and cold weather.

It soothes, it moisturises, it protects.
Brilliant value for a very small price. Great before applying lip colours as it prevents fade lines.
This is another hit product from Carmex. I will be repurchasing this again.

Wednesday 8 January 2014

Alterna - Bamboo Smooth: Kendi Dry Oil Mist

£20.50/ 125ml

Alterna is a lightweight, nutrient rich, instantly absorbing dry oil mist. Shields hair from heat styling tools and colour fade. It also eliminates frizz and enhances shine.
It can be used as a treatment to strengthen, soften and repair the hair or as a style primer to achieve a silky, sleek finish.
It is enriched with nourishing fairtrade and organic ingredients such as Bamboo, Avocado, Jojoba; to smooth and leave hair in a healthy condition.

I am addicted to the fragrance of this oil, it leaves hair smelling great all day long; I got lots of compliments with this is my tresses.
It did not weigh my hair down, nor did it make it feel slimy or greasy. The oil doe's every single thing it claimed to; smoothed, de-frizzed, enhanced shine, protected and gave me healthy looking hair.
It was mess free to use as it is a spray, (so no more greasy hands to deal with) sprayed evenly across the hair; so less is needed, it will last you longer using this method.

Great value for money, it lasts a very long time - even used daily.
Great for all hair types, smells fantastic and ticks all the boxes for a brilliant hair oil.
I will be repurchasing again in the future.

A high performance night recovery cream that works with the skin's own natural process for optimum regeneration. Revives, restores and rehydrates.

I have oily skin, so I am always a little nervous on encountering new oils and moisturisers as I either look very shiny or I have bad breakout's.
On using this cream, I was in love! Not only is it hands down the best night cream I have used, but it cleared up areas that was affected by acne.
Skin was not as oily through the day and I saw improvement in fine lines. It smells lovely and feels amazing on the skin; it sinks in immediately, so you are not left with any residue.
I would highly recommend trying this cream. I would be surprised if it disappointed you. It has become one of my hero products that I have already repurchased.
Great value for money. Good sized jar, that lasts for months. A real treat with real results.

Tuesday 7 January 2014

Packed with anti-oxidising extracts which are great for anti-ageing; including nourishing Argan Oil and Acai extract, known to aid collagen production to tighten the skin.
It penetrates fast and leaves hands soft, smooth and non-greasy.

A lovely formula. It has an addictive scent; it reminds me of summer days, definitely lifts the mood!
You only need a pea sized amount, so the tube lasts a very long time.
Instant results; left my hands deeply nourished, smooth and supple with no greasy residue.

On purchasing, researching and using this hand cream, I can honestly say it is worth every penny and great value as it lasts so long.
Taking into account all the natural/ organic ingredients that goes into the cream, you can begin to understand the actual cost.
On using the cream; feeling and seeing the immediate results, you realise what a gem you have found.

It's super moisturising, sinks deep down instantly and revives your skin straight away.

Very strong Lavender scent. Use more than a pea size amount and skin can look and feel greasy.
I would not recommend this for normal to oily skin; this is definitely a product for dry/ very dry skin. I personally have oily skin and this created a very shiny finish.

A good size but also a mid-range price tag, if you have dry/ very dry skin this may be value for money and works incredible to nourish your skin.
I will not be repurchasing this as it is not suitable for my skin type.

Sunday 5 January 2014

Sunday Special...

My favourite out of this week's reviewed had to be Weleda - Skin Food.
I got so many uses from this product that it was hard not to choose this gem, it works a treat on any type of skin; eczema is dealt with almost instantly. Visible results from first use, protects as well as nourishes and most of all brilliant value for money.

If you would like a more in-depth review of this product please click on the link Click Here. This will give you all the details that you need to know surrounding price, description and results.

Well deserving of the Sunday Special place this week. I would highly recommend trying this product.

Saturday 4 January 2014

Leighton Denny Nail Varnish

£11.00/ 12ml
Made in the EU.
Shade/colour: Vamp.
Suitable for long and short nails.

A modern classic, rouge-noir with slightly more black in the undertone. Vamp looks good on short and long nails alike.

The varnish has a great formula, it wasn't too runny nor too thick. It was a joy to work with.
Fast drying and hardened quickly.
The colour I would describe as more a chocolate/ red rather than black/ red.
Definitely needs two coats as the first applied streaky and uneven.

Lasting time of varnish:
2 coats of varnish: 3 days.
Base coat and 2 coats of varnish: 4 days.
2 coats of varnish and top coat: 4 days.
Base coat, 2 coats of varnish and top coat: 7-9 days.

With a base and top coat this is a beautiful nail varnish with a nice formula, low odour and brilliant staying power. Even flatters short, small nails.
Fantastic value for money, I will be purchasing other colours.

Friday 3 January 2014

Dr. Organic - Dead Sea Mineral Eye Rescue Rollerball

Made in the UK
Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
Tailored for both male and female consumers.
An eye cream which uses natural ingredients to effectively reduce puffiness, tired eyes, dark circles and improves micro-circulation.

Dr. Organic is committed to creating unique, natural products, free from parabens, SLS, artificial colours, fragrances and harsh preservatives.
A bioactive base formulation of Dead sea mineral salts with natural and organic extracts and over 20 essential oils. This targeted formulation energises skin cells which increases oxygen consumption and lypolytic action, resulting in the breakdown of fat deposits. Instantly addresses fine lines around the eyes, puffy, sagging skin and dark circles.

I enjoyed the packaging as it was clean and mess free. Very easy to use.
The rollerball made application quick and easy. The product lasted well over three months. (used day and night)
A lovely cooling effect to the under eye, making it feel refreshed. The scent was mild. No burning or irritation occurred while using this product.
The formulation did decrease the puffy, sagging skin under the eye but the fine lines and the dark circles remained the same - no visible difference in my opinion.

I would place this at average value for money.
The rollerball is personally not my preferred method of application due to hygiene reasons. The formula only addressed the puffy and sagging skin and failed to effectively target other problems.
However, if you are looking for a firming and tightening product for under the eye area and suffer from tired, puffy looking eyes, this product would be worth a try.

Thursday 2 January 2014

Weleda - Skin Food

£8.95/ 75ml
Made in Germany. 
Suitable for Vegetarians.
Used for dry and rough skin. 
This product is tailored for both male and female skin.

From the original green beauty pioneer, around since 1926. A backstage beauty secret and a cult beauty favourite of celeb's.
Made with extracts of Chamomile, Wild Pansy, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Calendula and revitalising Rosemary extract. Added essential oils of Sweet Orange and Lavandulae give it an addictive soft fragrance.

It is a nourishing repair cream for face, hands and body to replenish and revive dry skin. It's deep penetrating and fast acting. It can also be used as a protective cream in very harsh weather. (Helps to comfort and protect from harsh outdoor conditions.)

A little goes a long way, so use very sparingly and work quickly, as this cream/ balm absorbs very fast. It leaves no residue on the skin - it is totally absorbed in seconds and gives visible results after just the first use.

It is very fairly priced and lasts such a long time as you need so little, brilliant value for money.

I would definitely repurchase this in a heartbeat. Especially great for winter weather as well as summer on sun damaged areas that need a little extra care.
I can see this product being used in various situations already - hero product!

Welcome to Exploration Beauty!

Hello and welcome to Exploration Beauty. 

I have been in the hair and beauty industry for over 14 years. In this time I have picked up lots of knowledge about the business and used a whole heap of different products. 

The most important factor to anyone in the industry, novice or expert is if the products you use actually work; if they don't it doesn't really matter how good or knowledgeable you are, the look you're trying to achieve will not turn out the way that you desired it to. 
So, with this I am embarking on a journey to find product's that do what you need them to do. If the product fails the test this will be in the results. All the opinions on the product's I review are my own and 100% honest.

I will update content on a daily basis of tried and tested products, on each day of the week I will review a product giving details of:
  • Price
  • Amount of product
  • Where it is made
  • Who it is suitable for
  • Information about the product
  • What it is for
  • If the product worked
  • Is it value for money
  • The end results
On Sunday, I will be doing a Sunday Special. This will be the featured product of all the products tested in that entire week and why it was my favourite.
This will give a spotlight to products that I personally think are great and give fantastic results; making looking beautiful quick, easy and correct - for your skin tone/ skin type/ hair type.

Vegetarian and vegan approved products will also be included in the testing; so hopefully there will be something for everyone.
(If you are curious on how I test products, please read the 'About Me' section.)

Have a great New Year and again welcome to Exploration Beauty!
