I have been using Bodyshop Rainforest shampoo for a few weeks now and I can really see the difference in my hair! My hair is dry, wavy/ curly and prone to frizz. It's now much softer, shinier and less frizzy. Yay! ( thinks its cos its sulphate free)

I read about it on another thread here and wanted not only to pass it on but also to see what other gems Mumsnetters have...?

Dermalogica eye brightener, total eye care. I've always suffered from dark circles even as a child. You could think id got permanent black eyes.

Clarins exfoliating brightening toner - it's amazing.

Shampoo and conditioner with no chemical stuff in (Sulphates?) does definately make a difference. My hair looks and feels better. I think it's called Avalon, it's lemony.

Taking vitamin supplements helps my skin and nails.

Interesting thread!

ihatethecold - which Clinique eye cream do you use?

MissDD1971 Mon 23-Sep-13 09:58:35

Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean cleanser.

Clinique airflash/brush illuminating for under eyes.

A good blusher - currently using MAC cremeblush in something special.

also surprisingly enough eyeliner - Body Shop Navy apparently makes your eyes look less tired and purple does this too I think. And I like Bare Minerals Big and Bright Eyeliner in espresso.

Also love Bobbi Brown Hydrating Creme.

Rapidlash. I can definitely tell a difference - my eyelashes are longer and eyebrows thicker.

aftereight Mon 23-Sep-13 10:09:22

Moroccan Oil
L'Oreal Revitalift laser renew serum
Nivea in shower body conditioner
Clarins facial oil
Aussie shampoo and conditioner

And I say this as someone who has tried all sorts of higher end stuff over the years

The Clinique eye cream is called all about eyes. It's in a pot.

Also just rediscovered YSL Touch Eclat for under eyes...used it religiously when I was early 20s until I realised I didn't actually need it. Now I'm in my 30s I do need it and it makes a big difference.
