Hi all,

First thing to quickly say is that I have lost my camera lead so at the moment I am unable to upload anything onto the computer. Boooo. As soon as I find it I will go back to uploading my own pics, but for now I am having to rely on pictures sourced from the net.

Anyway, on to the review...

I sure that most of you are familiar with Elizabeth Arden's 8 hour range. Personally, I have been using the Skin Protectant and Lip Protectant Stick for around a year now and love those. Recently I've started using the Moisturizing Body Treatment too.

I must say that I really like this cream. It's a great thick texture that literally does last all day. I have been using it on my body - particularly my arms and legs which I often neglect due to long hours at work and not having a enough time to even think about ensuring I stick to a proper regime. So it has been good to use a cream that instantly injects my skin with moisture and saves me from scaly dry neglected skin times!

I have also been using it on my face after exfoliating and it leaves my skin feeling super super soft.

Definitely worth purchasing if you want a cream that can provide you super soft skin without feeling greasy or oily!

I recently filmed a March favourites video (not uploaded) which got me thinking about my all time favourites and I couldn't believe that I had not shared this with you before.

Just by way of background I should add at this stage that I have always been a lover of Redken. Well I say always, what I mean is ever since I started using it around 4 years ago. Don't get me wrong, I do use other products, but I know that using Redken keeps my hair shiny and soft when it's at it's worse so I know it is good for my hair.

Ok, on to this particular Redken Beauty. It is part of the extreme range (dark blue) and is a leave in treatment which reduce friction from brushing by smoothing the hair cuticle and therefore resulting in less breakage. The texture itself is like a very runny conditioner. I would take a picture but frankly it looks a little disturbing...

Despite the appearance (if you over analyse when trying to describe!) this product works really well. I started using this around 2 years ago and I would definitely not go back to life without it. I have noticed significantly less breakage for sure and always swear by it.

Now this is not a miracle product for me, in that my hair hasn't magically grown to Rapunzel like length as a result of using this, but it is always more manageable, styling much easier in addition to maintaining the shape of the style for longer in adverse weather conditions.

This is one of my vitals in my hair care routine being applied immediately after washing.

This is a definite recommendation. I have been paying £16.10 for it from a salon in Manchester. ERROR. Feelunique offer it for £13.60 with free delivery here.

You may recall a January post in which I mentioned I had purchased one of these beauties after reading some good reviews in blogland. And whilst I get excited about new products when it comes to application it's better if I hold my thoughts and re-evaluate the situation after a little while for an objective result. Which is what I have done here.

So let me get to the point... When I first started using this product I really liked it. However, that was probably due to it being during the weekend which mean *no rushing* and of course my makeup always goes on better as a result. So I continued to use this for a week or two everyday following purchase and then stopped.

For me this is not a product to use for applying foundation to the whole face. I found it actually soaked up a bit too much product meaning my skin didn't look it's best.

However, then I learnt to use it when it is damp. Well, what a REVELATION that was! It makes SUCH a difference to my makeup application - particularly when it comes to layering. I am so pleased I bought this product and learnt how to use it to suit me and my skin. I can see why so many girls were raving about it.

I would definitely recommend this and would suggest trying it wet also. I literally run under the cold tap and squeeze excess out before using it with foundation. It stops the foundation getting soaked up by the sponge and ensures beautifully smooth application.

You can purchase here for £4.95 with free delivery! Go on, you know you want to...

(for the best result apply in circular patting movements!)

Noooooo!! Definitely NOT a product I will be buying. Why oh why would you want marmite flavoured/smelling lips !!? WRONG.

I mean I get the whole marmite thing. Personally I'm not a fan but for those of you that are would you actually want it on your lips!?

I mean I dread to think what will be next. Probably gravy flavoured or garlic. Yeah that will be it.
