LIDL Suhada Nature Rice Bamboo Night Cream – a review

Everyone that reads this blog knows that I absolutely swear by the Iseree day and night cream. It’s all natural that when LIDL had a new “brand” of cosmetics to offer, I felt compelled to try it. It comes in a tube rather than a pot and the screw-on top is imitation wood. A nice presentation touch that makes it appear a bit more upmarket compared to its Iseree cousin if you ask me. The cream in itself is quite thick and smells lovely to me. However, I would presume that said smell might put some people off (starting with my other half). I know I am prone to feel quite dry in the mornings due to our central heating kicking off ½ hour before we get up so I usually pile my night cream on. The usual Iseree one gets absorbed quite quickly. This one needs a good rub though but as previously mentioned and in its defence, the Suhada cream is actually thicker than Iseree’s. My skin still feel moisturised in the mornings. My only reservation is possibly that it may not be suitable for people with oily skin or serial clogging pores: I wake up with a bit of an oily film on my skin. Nothing seriously as unpleasant as how your skin feels in the morning before you wash it. The retail price in my local LIDL is £4. It’s definitely worth trying for that price.

Urban Decay Big Fatty Waterproof Mascara – a review

One thing I want to clarify before embarking on another mascara review is that, apart from one very expensive Dior mascara I received as a gift 10 years ago, none of the mascaras I have tried so far made it through a full day’s work. I always ended up with those under eye shadows: at best I looked tired and at worst, I looked like a panda. So my wedding day approaches and I am off on a hunt. Originally I was looking for a lipstick to match my skin tone and my dress’s colour. But since Urban Decay had an offer on, I decided to give their mascara a try. The Urban Decay counter girl was actually wearing it at the time and it hadn’t flaked at 5pm yet: this was as good a hint as I could take as to the quality of the product. The usual retail price is £16. It does give you some nice lashes, a bit of a combination of volume and length and no clumping. You do have to wipe that drop of goop from the tip of your brush first. Of course, you get better results when using an eyelash curler before application. Wedding day arrived and I managed to make it through the day without looking like a panda, even after tears during the ceremony/speech and some heavy sweating induced by energetic dancing and even headbanging. I did have some shadows under my eyes at 2am. At this point, I would be tempted to declare it the best mascara ever but… Well, I have been using this mascara for the past 6 months now and it seems to be giving me shadows under my eyes (again). It does state on the product that it would start degrading 6 months after it’s been opened. However, mine started flaking after 4 months. My verdict on this mascara would be: worth a try. It’s not the cheapest out there but it has done the job on my big day. However, you have to keep in mind that it seems to lose its waterproof power a few months after first use.
