5 Mini Reviews: L'Occitane, Clinique, LUSH, Nivea & balance Me

Thursday, 13 December 2012


(1) L'Occitane Repairing Conditioner
Only a one use sachet but one that I really enjoyed using.  Formulated for dry and damaged hair, it left my hair feeling stronger and looking healthier straight away which is pretty amazing!  Definitely will be picking up a full size bottle when I've used up some of my current hair conditioners.

(2) Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream
Have used samples of this in the past and it's a good fragrance-free cream based exfoliator.  I'd say it's a bit too abrasive to use on a daily basis as they suggest, but it's one I liked to use twice a week in my skincare routine instead.

(3) LUSH Mask Of Magnaminty
This face mask has been recommended to me countless times, so when I experienced an annoying breakout across my chin last week, I popped into LUSH to get a sample to try out.  It cleared everything up in one go, very impressed!  Smells fresh and minty too!  Seriously worth trying out if you have spot-prone/breakout/oily/ problem skin.

(4) Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer
I had high hopes for this, but it just didn't work for me and caused the above mentioned breakout :(

(5) balance Me Stellar Face Balm*
Loved using this multi-purpose balm on all my dry bits (lips, around the nose when you have a cold, cuticles, elbows, heels etc) and found it very effective.  The full size is pretty expensive at £18 a pot, so I'd probably only purchase the travel size in the future.  You can also use it as a hydrating face mask if you have dry skin.


Have you tried any of these?

  1. I didn't like that primer either - it actually made my foundation roll off my face as I applied it, WHAT?! Definitely staying loyal to Witch x

  2. The conditioner sounds really nice. I'm trying to finish up some hair products before I purchase any more but I'll remember this one, It sounds like it might work for my damaged hair. xx

    1. I've read some mixed reviews of their shampoos, but their conditioners and treatments certainly seem to live up to the hype! xx

  7. The Lush mask sounds lovely! I'v been using the Nivea hydration primer and really like it- but think it would be a bit too heavy in summer
