Dibi Milano – Pure Perfection Sebo-Balance Cream & Cleansing Gel

Dibi Milano – Pure Perfection Sebo-Balance Cream & Cleansing Gel

I’d never heard of Dibi Milano before a couple of weeks ago, but I have a feeling they’re going to be big news over the coming months. It’s one of Italy’s best-selling skincare brands and they’ve recently launched here in the UK. Their products are split into seven product lines, each one targeting a specific skin issue including sensitive skin, dull skin and wrinkles. I was sent two products from the Pure Perfection range, aimed at oily and problem skin, which help to balance the production of sebum (oil) and fight bacterial growth. Pure Perfection Sebo-Balance Cleansing Gel* – this is a translucent pale golden cleansing gel that you can use morning and night to cleanse the skin. I found it a bit strange because you expect it to foam when you apply it but it doesn’t, it works a bit more like a cream cleanser in that you massage it into the skin then rinse it off with warm water. The bottle is very rigid and I found...

Ted Baker – Faked To Perfection Nails

Ted Baker – Faked To Perfection Nails

If you’re a fan of false nails then you’ll be pleased to know that Ted Baker have recently brought out a new range of ‘Faked To Perfection’ artificial nails, I was lucky enough to be sent the Rose Gold* set to try out. They come in the same cute sweet shop packaging as the Sweet On You Nail Duo that I reviewed last year. The pack contains 24 artificial nails, a small tube of nail glue and a weird white plastic applicator stick. (I didn’t find that the applicator stick was much help, it didn’t hold the nails very well and made it impossible to press the nails firmly onto the nail bed, it was much easier to apply the nails using my fingers). The set comes in a clear box which is really handy to keep the spares and the glue in after you’ve applied the nails. The Rose Gold set are a pretty pale pink colour with a shiny metallic rose gold tip, really beautiful and rose...

REN – Satin Perfection BB Cream

REN – Satin Perfection BB Cream

I received this mini sample of REN Satin Perfection BB Cream in the Latest In Beauty British Beauty Blogger Dream Box that I purchased a few months ago. REN is a brand that I admire very much – their products contain only 100% plant and mineral derived actives and are free from synthetic ingredients – and my favourite skincare product of 2013 was REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. I still can’t really make my mind up about BB Creams, I find a lot of them give a shiny plasticky finish to the skin, plus as I have combination skin my nose and chin often find them too oily. However this REN Satin Perfection BB Cream gives a nice satin finish which I was really pleased about – my skin doesn’t look shiny at all – and then I finish it with a dusting of Clinique Blended Face Powder. The product itself is a thick creamy foundation-like base and it slides onto the skin really easily. I’ve been applying it...

MUA – Blush Perfection Cream Blusher in Bittersweet

MUA – Blush Perfection Cream Blusher in Bittersweet

I’ve already reviewed a couple of MUA powder Blushers (why not see what I thought about MUA Blusher in Shade 1) but this is the first of their Blush Perfection Cream Blushers that I have tried. Prior to my first experience with MUA make-up I had always been a bit of a beauty snob and thought that you get what you pay for, but evidently this isn’t true any more with more and more great budget beauty brands being launched. MUA Blush Perfection Cream Blusher in Bittersweet is a sugary bubblegum pink coloured cream blusher in a small rectangular compact. Sugary bluey-pinks are my favourite blush shades so Bitersweet is perfect for me. I apply the Cream Blusher to my cheekbones using my Real Techniques Stippling Brush, this brush is perfect for applying cream products and I could probably do with ordering another one or two as I’m forever having to wash it to apply a different product. Just a tiny amount of the blusher should be added to the...
