I bought this a while ago when my other mascara broke (While I'm here I'll do a super quick review within a review and say never buy Gosh mascara because it's shit). It was on offer in boots for about £5 I think, and I'm a sucker for a new product so thought I'd try it out.
Claims: Rimmel say that with this mascara you can create not one, not two, but three different looks by adjusting how much product is loaded onto the wand, and therefore varying the volume.
LIES. Well, you CAN adjust the mascara tube but it really doesn't make much difference to how much mascara gets on the applicator, neither does it make much difference to how thick your lashes are. Pros: It's cheap Cons: It doesn't do what it says it does.
Even if you think of it as a 'regular' mascara it still isn't very good, the older rimmel products are much better. It isn't terrible though, so I shall use it until it finishes, then probably return to one of the three greatest mascaras I've ever used:
This is the best face product, ever.
I've been using it for about two years now, along with several other Dermalogica products which I may or may not review later.
Basically, I love this product. I have no complaints and have bought it several times. It's designed for oily skin - it stops build-up which ultimately stops you getting spots. I use it twice a day - sometimes only once - and haven't had a bad breakout since my first order. The formula is very thick, and as the name suggests, like clay. They say to apply to a dampened face, and you only need a small amount of product to thoroughly cleanse your face. I find it works best if you use warm water beforehand to open your pores, then use an amount about the size of a 10p piece and apply (troublesome areas first, e.g. T-zone). Then rinse with cold water.
- deep cleansing
- thick & creamy formula
- pretty much odourless (no strong fruit or floral smells, but it doesn't smell of chemicals either)
- prevents breakouts
- This product is quite expensive
Despite the price, a 250ml bottle will last around 3-4 months, and a 500ml bottle will last around 6-8 months

It's almost at that point in the year where we soak up the very last of the sun (or not, which is often the case in the UK), pack away the high-waisted denim shorts, and start thinking about what we'll be wearing for Autumn & Winter.
I shop far too much, buy far too much. So I'm ATTEMPTING to buy less this coming season without having to look like I got dressed four years ago.
I'm going to gradually put together a shopping list, then narrow it down until it's realistic. I'm starting with looks from the shows, which I will then try my absolute hardest to replicate on the high street when they get their AW10/11 collections in. All I can say is, god save Topshop.
