5.0 out of 5 stars because you're worth it, 10 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
L'Oréal
======
They are the largest cosmetics company in the world. They have loads of brands from Garnier, L'Oréal and have huge research facilities in respect of cosmetics. Just because they're the biggest doesn't mean they're the best. Equally, just because they're the biggest doesn't mean they're evil. I've tested loads of L'Oréal stuff ranging from WOW this should be on the NHS to Oh my golly gosh-this is dreadful.
OK? Let's go..

WHAT IS IT
=========
A bronzer

PROS
=====
quite natural looking
not expensive
well known brand
very easy to apply
well made
gives a lovely glow

4.0 out of 5 stars ok, 3 Feb. 2016
STYLISH
=======
Looks nice and is quite light too. It's a little bulkier than some of the neater, smaller pen drives. It's a little more rugged.

ANTI COPY
=========
I'm not sure how useful it is but is has an anti copy/delete facility. I'm sure there will be ways around it but it may be a useful feature for some.

FAST
=====
I copied some files from my PC to the Laptop and the transfer was really quick. Both ways.

VALUE
======
It's not too expensive

OVERALL
========
If you need a USB drive this is one to consider.

GARNIER MICELLAR
=================
400mls of Micellar cleansing water.

MICELLAR
========
It’s not a toner.
It’s not a cleansing milk.
It’s not a face wash.
It removes makeup and cleanses the skin, without the need for rinsing.
They've been available in French pharmacies for a while and are OK for sensitive skin.

I found that micellar water picked up residue that other cleansers left behind. I used a clean cotton pad, and found that it was effective with one wipe.

There's no alcohol and it was fine around the sensitive eye area.

OVERALL
========
It's now part of my skincare regime.

PROS
easy to apply
nice smell
not expensive
quite effective
good brand

5.0 out of 5 stars good value, 2 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
WHAT IS A NIGHT CREAM
====================
There are two types.
A: Anti-Ageing (also be called firming, anti-wrinkle and lifting.) These typically contain active ingredients. They help your skin replenish which can reduce age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Careful though: they cab irritate some sensitive skins.
B: Deep Moisture (also called ultra-hydrating, deep nourishing and restorative.) These creams use higher levels of emollients so they moisturise more than a day time moisturiser.

TIP ONE
======
If you don't need extra moisture or extra replenishing you don't need a night cream.

GARNIER MOISTURE RESTORE
=========================
This falls into the second category.

SMELL
=====
Nice, fresh and pleasant.
I quite like it. Some may find it overpowering but I like it.

TIP 2
====
Choose based upon your skin type and concerns.
Start young.
Drink water and exercise.

Pros:
light and not at all heavy
instant results
not too expensive
doesn't irritate
Cons:
none really

IN TESTING
=========
Almost straight away this had a positive effect, it smells nice and I felt "moisturised"

OVERALL
=======
Instant results and good value.
