More opinions from me (lucky you). This time it’s product reviews of everything from wax strips (ouch) to software.

Dr Lewinn’s Essentials hand and nail cream

This is the third or fourth hand cream I’ve trialled this year and when looking at price and performance, it’s probably the best. The label says it has all the vitamin letters you want showing up in a good hand…

Dr Lewinn’s Skin Perfect primer & foundation

A couple of foil sample sachets of this product arrived with my May Goodiebox¬†subscription, and because there was so little else’s in the box to review I thought I had better give this stuff a try. The primer delivered on…

Ecostore shampoo and conditioner

This isn’t one of the more luxury brands around, but at $10 a bottle I did expect something a bit better for my dry and somewhat stressed hair. I have no problem with cheaper brands of shampoo (truth be told,…

Sebamed Anti Dry Defence day cream

This day cream comes with an alphabet soup of added vitamins and good-for-you stuff and I was pretty happy with the result. All in all, this one’s pretty good and left my skin feeling clean and smooth but not greasy.…

Color Club Poptastic nail polish
