Garnier Mineral Invisible Calm Anti-Perspirant

My views.
I liked this product and I found it did stop the white marks on tops etc.
My skin did feel like it could breath while wearing this spray.
The only negative comment I have is it did not keep me dry for a full 48 hours like it says but it did last most of the day.
I would re purchase this item again.
Overall 8/0

I like the scent from this spray is very fresh.
I however did not think it helped keep me dry in any stressful daily life. nor did it last for 48 hours.
will not be re purchasing.
Overall 6/10 

Impulse Tease Body Fragrance Spray 75ml
Play the game and keep them on their toes. Go on girls - tease. Impulse Tease Body Fragrance Spray: Irresistibly flirtatious.

My views
I have always loved this spray there is a lot of different scents you can choose from I think I have bought most of them over time but this one smells so nice and girly the scent lasts for a while great to pop in your bag.
will be repurchasing again.
Overall 9/10

(Tesco) Along Came Betty Foaming Face Wash.
(Description (from Tesco)
This Along Came Betty Foaming Lovely face wash is enriched with the skin conditioning super fruit Kakadu plum, vitamins E and C as well as coconut derived moisturisers, and will thoroughly cleanse for brighter, fresher and more radiant skin. It's time to dazzle.

My views
OMG I love this range from Tesco! I have tried most of them and love them all! the price is good and the products are fabulous.
It reminds me of the Soap and Glory range but this deserves it's own stamp of aproval as this is a great alternative.
I use this foam wash every day and it makes my face feel super clean and fresh and smells so lovely.can't go wrong with this it is one of my favs for sure.
already repurchased.
Overall 9/10

JOHNSON'S Face Care Hydrating 24 Hour Day Cream 50ml
JOHNSON'S Hydrating 24 Hour Day Cream with SPF 15 is enriched with essential skin loving minerals and vitamins, locking in moisture for 24 hours, leaving skin feeling soft and refreshed whilst providing an excellent base for make-up.

My views
I was using this cream during the winter months as my skin was a little dry from the cold weather.
I liked the smell and texture of this cream was not to thick and soaked in well.I would say it was a good base for make-up but most face creams are as it is important to wear moisturizer before putting on any foundation as this will act as a base anyway.
I found that once my dry skin settled I stopped using this product but would repurchase again for the winter time.
Overall 7/10

Rimmel Wake Me Up Make Up Foundation
Rimmel Wake Me Up Make Up Foundation Light, moisturising texture applies smoothly and leaves skin feeling soft and comfortable all day. Gives an instant flawless, natural-looking finish.Wake Up & Glow!

My views
I have been using this foundation on and off now for a while. I have the shade soft beige which wasn't the correct shade for my skin but I used it anyway and toned it down a little with bronzing powder and my normal face powder as I mainly used this around the summer time as this foundation is good for dry skin I would not really recommend this foundation for oily to combination skin types. as I found this to look slightly oily around my T zone after a few hours and the blotting paper is needed.
I will repurchase this again in my correct shade for the summer. Overall 7/10

Next is 3 empty packs of facial wipes.

Nivea Daily Essential Refreshing Cleansing Wipes
Nivea Daily Essential Refreshing Cleansing Wipes are free from alcohol and enriched with Lotus Extract & Vitamins conveniently cleanse your face, eye area and neck while respecting your skin&rsquos natural moisture balance

My views
I liked these facial wipes I tend to use wipes as the first step in removing my make-up.
The wipe is thick with moisture so you can rub the wipe over the face a few times and still feel moisture being applied to the skin to cleanse. Honestly they do make your skin feel refreshed too.
I used about 2 sheets to take my make-up off fully including my eye make-up.
They smell fresh and pleasant good choice to use if they are on offer.
would repurchase if on special offers.  Overall 8/10 

Olay Essentials Cleansers Gentle Cleansing Sensitive Wipes - 20 wipes 
Lift away dirt and make-up without leaving a residue on the skin. The dirt is lifted away, leaving behind rich Olay moisturisers to soften and nourish the skin. 

My views
I love these facial wipes! These wipes are white in colour and thick in material so very robust.
Unlike some face cleansers I have used, these do not dry out when the packet is in use  the wipes did well in removing my make-up and waterproof mascara.
so easy to use and really cleanses the face and leave it nice and clean and fresh.
I would say though that these are not necessarily to be used as an alternative to a normal skin care routine as, no matter how hard you try, they don't remove every trace of make-up. I would advise using a face wash as well after using these.
I would repurchase Overall 8/10  

T-Zone Shine Control Facial Cleansing Wipes 
T-Zones Shine Control Cleansing Wipes have been specially formulated to:
•Effectively remove the excess oil, grease and bacteria that can cause spots
• Reduce shine
• Cleanse, tone and protect in one, leaving great looking skin
• Remove makeup instantly
• Guard against over-dry skin 

My views
I did like these wipes even though I am 38 years young I still suffer with a greasy t-zone at times and the odd zit which is why I bought them!
They not only are meant to effectively remove make-up but also keep your face shine free and help keep spots at bay as well! I found that these wipes helped with my t-zone from the oiliness.
These wipes are white in colour and thick in material so very robust.   
good product would repurchase again Overall 7/10

Batiste Dry Shampoo Cherry - Fruity & Cheeky 200ml   
Batiste Dry Shampoo Fruity & Cheeky Cherry banishes oily roots, giving dull, lifeless hair the makeover it needs without any water. A quick burst revitalises hair, adds body and texture and leaves it feeling clean and fresh too. 

My views 
I love love love this product range! I have been using these for a while now. this dry shampoo is great to use in between washing great for using in the morning to refresh my hair and it cuts out grease and leaves lovely scent, 
It can leave a white talc residue on the hair/roots if you do not rub it in well enough but this isn't really an issue for me with having blonde hair,however you can buy one for darker hair in this range.
Great for creating volume , controlling fly away hair and the smell is delicious!
I will purchase it again! Overall 9/10


For the hands and nails. 
Cutex Nourishing Nail Polish Remover 100ml
This Nourishing Nail Polish Remover from Cutex, especially formulated for weak nails, removes stubborn nail polish stains whilst also nourishing your nails and whitening your tips.  

My views
I have been using this product now for a few months and I love it! I will not use any other nail polish remover!
This is the best one in my opinion!
It has a pleasant smell unlike most polish removers. it has like a sweet smell.
It removes several layers of polish quickly and cleanly. It is moisturising and never leaves my nails dried out or stained.  I've noticed an overall improvement in the condition of my nails since using this product.
I totally recommend it! I will purchase it again! Overall 10/10 

Derma Intensive+ Ultra protecting hand & nail balm (Tesco)
Q10 Derma Intensive + Ultra protecting hand & nail balm has been specially developed to help provide instant relief for dry hands. Coenzyme Q10 helps the skin to repair and protect is natural beauty. The Glycerin enriched formulation helps to soften and condition the skin without greasiness or residue.

My views
This hand and nail balm is a really great product!  I spotted the derma intensive hand and nail balm in Tesco and thought I would give it a try seeming as it has the Q10 that helps repair skin. the cream is not overly greasy and doesn't leave a residue on your hands once it has soaked in.
It  helped soften my hands for a few hours and not 24hours as it states and is easily absorbed, the scent is like a baby lotion smell which isn't bad.
I found it did keep my hands soft and cuticles but did not really help repair them.but I did like the overall feeling to my hands so for that I would repurchase 
Overall 7/10

Collection Nail Care 12ml Nail Bright polish
COLLECTION Nail Bright is an instant whitener for a natural finish. The polish brightens dull, stained nails and minimises yellowing. Active ingredients in the formula smooth the cuticle and nail surface while added ceramides add flexibility to weak nails. Apply 2 coats for a perfect manicured finish. 

My Views
This is one of my favorites for nail whitening.I really do like this product and after the first application I noticed a good difference in the whiteness of my nails. 
It also helped clear away polish staining and yellowing it gave a natural finish and looks pretty to wear alone or as a base coat.
I will be repurchasing this again. Overall 9/10
