    I finally found a conditioner that works for my hair and is absolutely silicone free: Green People's No Scent Conditioner. Leaves my hair moisturized as opposed to just coated with silicone and doesn't weigh my hair down or make it feel greasy. Love this stuff. Bit pricey, but worth it.

    I've had really dry skin lately and was looking for something that wasn't heavy, but really moisturizing. I picked up a bottle of this and I must say, I really love the stuff. It's thick, but absorbs quickly and isn't sticky. It's somewhere between a body butter and a lotion, even though it is fairly thick in the bottle. Plus it smells terrific, not overly sweet, but more like real vanilla with a coffee note. Next on my list is the Sugar Lemon Squares lotion.

    My issue is that after a while my body moisturizer stops working. I have to keep changing them up. I'm not sure if it's because it's so dry where I live or if it's me!

    Just bought a couple of these, and am going to buy a few more. The colors are vibrant with a metallic sheen, and they stay on all day without creasing. I've tried MAC's paint pots in Painterly and Morning Frost- I think the feel is somewhere in between those two. They're £5, and Boots has them on buy-one-get-one-half-off right now.

    I used to use Painterly Paint Pot as my eyeshadow base every single day without fail. I have been using one of the Color Tattoos for the past three or four months, and haven't gone back once. I just recently starting using the "Inked in Pink" color - it's super pretty!

    I'm pretty sure it was Barely Branded. It's one of the ones in the Metal line. I think Inked in Pink is, too.

    Has anyone tried the Lipsurge Matte Lip Tint stuff? I'm considering bribing someone in the US to get me some but that would be pointless if they're rubbish.

    I tried this last week in the color Red Zin. It's supposed to be an all-in-one base coat, color, and top coat. I had it on for five days, and by the end they still looked great. I only took the polish off because my fingernails like to breathe. The color was great (and flattering to my skin tone; I'm fair-skinned), application easy, had a nice gellish shine, and no chipping. There are a lot of bad reviews online, people complaining it turned their nails yellow and brittle. I didn't find that to be the case, although I probably will use a base coat next time because I have the thought in my head now. I have tried gelish polish and it didn't last the guaranteed fortnight, and destroyed my nails. The Sally Hansen polish gave the same look without the destruction, or cost. (Wilkinson's has them for under £5 right now.)

    I absolutely love this body cream - both the scent and the way it makes my skin feel. It's not inexpensive but a little goes a long way for me.

    I went to a new hair salon today and really love the way my hair looks and feels. The stylist used these products on me and I was so happy with the outcome that I bought them.

    Looks like I need to make a trip to Wilko's.
    I've got gelish on at the moment (about 20 days and no chipping) but getting it off is hell on my nails because I also like to let my nails breathe (and I usually have it for special occasions/big work related events) so I don't just get it put back on again (so old removed by them beforehand). Normal varnish, however, doesn't stand a chance as I wash my hands about 50 times a day. Something inbetweeny would be really useful. Does it come off easily with nail varnish remover or is it a soaky job?

    That Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line is my FAVOURITE nail polish. I use it with a base coat and top coat though. I love the colours (I have about 12), and it always stays on for at least 5 days without chipping, sometimes more. I love it.

    I recently (within the last year) fell in love with BB Creams! I bought one from Holika Holika off amazon because a friend recommended it. It was easily the most thourough and weightless coverage I have ever experienced. It cleared my skin and I didn't need the help of anything else to hide blemishes or spots. But because it was an Korean product, it had to travel a long distance to get here, so in the meantime I picked up L'Oreal's BB Cream. I've begun wearing it on a daily basis and saving the Holika cream for evenings and performances. The L'Oreal cream is wonderful and lightweight, but doesn't have such great coverage compared to the other, which isn't a problem for me.

    I absolutely adore them and I feel I'm not as intimidated by makeup as a result of finding BB Cream. Wondering if anyone else swears by them also? And what about CC creams? I bought another Korean brand off of eBay and hated it! But I don't want to give up!

    I want to love BB creams, but anything "cream" is really more effort than I am willing to put in. Plus, I can't really buy any BB or CC cream that isn't Korean, because all the American ones are just too dark for my complexion. I don't find that to be an issue with Korean ones, as they have better color range and have more of an emphasis on fair complexions than America usually does. All that being said, I'm a mineral and/or powder foundation kind of gal. I like how quick, easy, and natural looking (if you have a light touch!) they are, so I tend to reach for my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural or MUFE Pro-Finish before the Dr. Jart BBs I have.
