She Said Beauty Reviews

Elemis Tranquil Touch Indulgent Bath Elixir
Great product!! I was totally looking forward to using this bath elixir. Elemis products are known world wide for there huge range of spar products and therapies.  

The product has a thick consistency, clear in colour, once in the water you get a generous amount of bubbles and can smell the essential oils right away. The most prominent essential oil I could smell was Cederwood. The bath elixir on a whole smells amazing, it reminds me of Dermalogica's relaxing massage oil. Do I feel like I've been transported to a tropical island as mentioned in the product description? no! But I definitely felt relaxed and think this product is worth the money.
Full size £19 300ml 

St.Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Moisturiser:
Already having a medium/dark skin tone I have to be careful using tanning products. however! I do use gradual tans to even out my skin tone and to add a golden shimmery glow. 

This Gradual Tan is white in colour, has a medium texture and the signature St.Tropez smell on application is undeniable. You can smell the aloe vera within the product at first; which is nice! but as it fades that horrible fake tan smell makes an appearance. I could see the colour of the tan on my skin the following day after application. I had this tan in medium/dark which is the colour I'd choose when choosing a gradual tan but unfortunately it added to much of an orange tone to my skin. 

This product is great for lighter skin tones or people that like an obvious tan but definitely not for me.
Full size £14.30 200ml

Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream
This product is true to it's name. My hands have been very dry just recently so I was happy to have a little hand cream in my She Said Beauty box. Almost instantly after applying this products my hands felt super moisturised! 

Comes in a tube, white in colour, dense in texture and on application it leaves a really smooth luxury feeling on your skin. Regarding the smell of this fantastic moisturiser the word "old lady" comes to mind (ha ha). I wouldn't rate this product in terms of the smell but I'd give it a ten+ for it's fantastic moisturising effects.
Full size £14.50 100ml

Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream
This is a moisturiser/sun screen/makeup base. It states on the packaging that this product is suitable for all skin types? all skin types maybe but definitely not all skin tones as the colour of the product left me looking a bit ghostly. not for me but would suit a paler skin tone.

A very watery consistency, nude beige in colour has a nice bitter/sweet smell. It goes on the skin easy but soaks in very fast.
Full size £20.00 25ml 

Yardley London Royal Diamond Eau De Toilette
Ya know I really can't make my mind up about this perfume. On application I kind of think "ewwww bit to mature for me" but then as it settles it has a gentle sweet floral scent. I like it enough to use the sample i think, but i don't think I'd by this for myself as I think it's a little to mature for me.
Full size £9.99 50ml

Let's Go Lashes
I got these in 'flirt' there beautiful! They come with the lash glue in the box, when there on they have a beautiful natural look and stay on well.  I would buy these again only for a special occasion just because I think strip lashes are to expensive for what they are. I'd rather try and make the most of my natural lashes; short as they are! :)
Full size £8.95
