Have found MOP haircare range to be great recently.

As for skincare have found vitamin E range from body shop v good but still searching for the best that really suits my skin.

Neal's Yard Frankinsense nourishing still the moisturiser that I go back to time and time again....

I used the Vitamin E stuff when I was younger (am now very old!) but it's not rich enough for me now...

I like the Boots protect and perfect serum too. I bought into the hype, but think it really does make your skin look and feel lovely....

If I was very very rich, I'd use Dior Capture range, I had some freebies once and it smells divine.....

I really like Simple cleanser and light moisturiser.

I did the oil cleansing method but had too many breakouts so went back to Simple and my skin is great again. It just seems to suit me and it's very cheap too smile.

Jurlique is the best skincare i have ever found - it is £££ but excellent

Oil of Olay - their moisturisers are the best and i have tried them all

Soap and Glory - scrub your nose in it exfoliator is as good as any £££ product

Rimmel Fast Finish nail polishes - amazing

Barry M dazzle dusts and pots of colour - the pigments are on a par with MAC IMO

Dream Matte Mousse - lovely foundation

oh and i used Calmia moisturiser and it evened out my skin tone a treat, pricey and i could only get it on the net but would get it again, highly recommended 5 ***

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm - great stuff
Dr hauschka's Rose Day Cream - s'lovely
Clinique foundation - it's light and not at all matt
Lancome juicy tubes
Vaseline - I use it to remove eye make up every night
Jo Malone Amber and Lavender perfume and Body cream.

Frownies are brill, stick 'em on and all your forehead lines go overnight with looking like you've had a bad case of the Nicole Kidmans. Just don't expect a snog when you've got them on.
