bh member duality:
“My favourite product would most certainly be the Trilogy Exfoliating Body Balm. I was plagued by dry, flaky skin and have searched for years for a good exfoliator and I finally found it! It is a true multipurpose product. It helped to reduce the red ingrown hair bumps on my legs, hydrates without being sticky and smells lovely.”
bh member darasparkle:
“I discovered the Mitchum Clinical Gel No White Marks antiperspirant and deodorant in Cool Fresh after reading the Trial Team reviews and decided to take the plunge. Now I doubt I'll ever even try another deodorant as this one has won me over. I am no longer embarrassed and having to do the smell test throughout the day, I'm left feeling clean and smelling fresh.”
bh member MissM19:
“I purchased the PONi Cosmetics Mane Stain eyebrow pomade in the latest beautorium. Brow products have become a huge obsession of mine and this has become my new favourite. It's creamy, goes on smoothly, the colour matches my brows perfectly, it blends nicely while filling the gaps for a natural look, and it lasts all through the day!“
bh member PandaBear18:
“The Scholl Velvet Smooth Wet & Dry Foot File [has] became my favourite (and most used!) product in 2016. I use it a few times a week and my feet have never looked better. Especially great now that summer’s here and I'm wearing more open shoes, no need to hide them away!”
bh member clearcrystalwaters:
“The M.A.C Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation (in the shade NC37) instantly enhances the appearance of my skin. It contains SPF 30, comes in so many shades and it is oil-free and long lasting. It is also an affordable price for such a beautiful product, easy to blend and makes me feel more confident and polished.”
bh member Bellefleur:
“The Bump eRaiser Triple Action lotion has been an absolute lifesaver for me in my ongoing battle with ingrown hairs. It does a great job clearing the ingrowns and is excellent value for money.”
bh member CandyFairy:
“The HoMedics Large Illuminated Beauty Mirror is a beauty essential I have wanted for years and I absolutely love it! It is double sided (one side magnified, the other normal), has LED lighting for a clearer reflection so you can really perfect your makeup and inspect your skin. It comes in gorgeous silver or chrome finishes which are both very modern-looking and stylish!”
bh member Temporary Princess:
“I found that the Indeed Laboratories vitamin c24 really helped in brightening my skin, creating a good base for my makeup.”
bh member lauratough:
“For years I have been looking for my Holy Grail mascara that doesn’t smudge (because everything I have tried does) and I finally found the PONi White Knight Mascara. It is incredible!”
bh member Rebecca777:
“The Women’s REGAINE® Foam hair treatment has an admirable and gentle formula that provides extraordinary stimulation to my scalp. This product promotes healthier hair growth and there's nothing like noticing my scalp has more hair and volume. When I run my fingers through my hair I just love how I can feel the difference to what my hair was like before.”
bh member PrincessMadeleine:
“I am so glad to have discovered the Goodness Certified Organic Chia Seed Oil. It has now become a Holy Grail in my skin care routine and I love how lightweight and silky it feels. It is filled with essential fatty acids that hydrate and nourish my skin, and provides anti-inflammatory support to my troubled areas. Plus, being certified organic and containing no nasties, I know I am using the very best ingredients on my face.”
bh member makeupcatxo:
“I got the Designer Brands 7 Piece ‘Make Me Up’ Pro Brush Set from beautorium and it has totally transformed the way I apply my makeup. I get so many compliments now on how well-blended my eyeshadow is and how defined by brows are, all thanks to these fantastic tools. They're the best brushes (and the best value!) I've ever used. The bristles feel as soft as clouds on the skin and are of superb quality.”
bh member Yohanna:
“After beautyheaven featured an article on facial cleansing devices I decided I had to try the FOREO LUNA 2 Sensitive Skin. Blackheads and whiteheads were a daily battle, no cleanser or exfoliator helped until I started to use the LUNA 2. The transformation has been immediate, smooth and soft skin and no more breakouts!”
bh member Heidi Purrs:
“Trilogy's Pure Plant Body Oil is one of my top products which I recently began using and I'm in love with it. It soothes and deeply moisturises my delicate skin yet absorbs readily, [as well as] improves the elasticity and appearance of uneven skin tone and stretch marks. It really feels lovely and is quite luxurious to use. It is also natural and is not tested on animals.”
bh member Princess Perfume:
“I love how gentle the NIVEA Gentle Caring Micellar Water - Sensitive Skin is, especially on my sensitive eye area. It has really revolutionised my life!”
bh member Emma171:
“I was lucky enough to test the Scott Cornwall Precolour Protein Spray in the October discovery bag and I’ve not stopped using it ever since! I usually have very dry blonde ends as my hair has the ombré effect, so I require regular trims to make it look fresh. Since using this spray after every wash with damp hair, my hair has fully restored itself looking so thick and healthy! The rest of my hair has become so soft and shiny and the colour itself has lasted longer.”
bh member misfortune8:
“I had the insane luck of WINNING the BaByliss Homelight Connected IPL Hair Removal device in a beautyheaven competition last year! I've always been paranoid about body hair and its removal. Now I can retire my old Braun epilator, after many years of faithful service. Goodbye ingrown hairs too!”
bh member skincare junkie:
“Earlier this year I suffered from serious contact dermatitis due to a reaction from another product. Nothing else could make me feel any better, even water irritated my skin. I was so lucky to have the Dermalogica UltraCalming Cleanser stored away in my drawer. The cleanser was so soothing on my sensitised skin, it was the only thing that I could use to still cleanse my face twice a day.”
