    LOL @ the sparkly face! I probably would have been horrified. Enjoyed this video!

    Hilarious! The Body Shop Vitamin C Revealing Liquid Peel: horrible to use. All the pilled product got stuck in the fine hairs on the sides of my face and I spent the next 2 hours picking it out. Not cool. Luckily Body Shop policy meant that I could take it back and swap for something else.

      I wasn’t a fan of that either – glad you could take it back so easily though!

    Hahaha on the shimmer face…
    I have such such oily skin as well so I can just IMAGINE how that shimmer with oily and everything go together… like draw the attention even more to my shiny and now shimmery face 😉

    Love the blog guys!

    Camilla, I’m so glad that you are sharing disappointing high end make-up because most times we think that if it costs a lot of money it WILL just be perfect! It’s great that your honest about it.

    Haven’t watched the video yet (saving that for tonight) but just the list of products here… Some of them are SERIOUSLY iconic. Wow, I can’t wait to hear what you guys have to say!
