Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil

Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing oil is a staple of my routine, and frankly, I’m really embarrassed that it’s taken me till now to review this product! I have sensitive skin, and this, coupled with a rather, um … magpie-like … approach to collecting skincare can cause occasional problems.  However, Clinique Take the Day Off oil has never, ever caused me a problem. Unencumbered […]

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse #PixiPretties Collection

Right. I’ve started this “review”, like, fifteen different ways now, and they were all a complete bag of utter shite.  I’m out of the habit of blogging at the moment, admittedly, and I can’t deny it, but there’s no way for me to write a “proper” review of this anyway. She’d squash me. The truth is that Caroline is a friend of mine, and Pixi […]

Votary Cleansing Oil

I love discovering new brands, and browsing around Liberty a good few weeks ago, I was intrigued by Votary Cleansing Oil.  From the colour of the bottle – a pleasing bright green, that stands out so beautifully from the white and pastels of many other skincare brands – the gorgeous rose-gold label, Votary looks different to many other skincare brands, and it has a slightly […]

Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Cleansing Balm

I’m slowly working my way through reviewing (almost) the entire Pixi beauty skincare range, and this week it’s the turn of Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Cleansing Balm.  A gently rose-scented balm, this is great for makeup removal, and leaves skin soft and cleansed after use. A mix of almond oil, coco butter and shea butter fortified with vitamin E, this is a very soft balm, which […]

Pixi Skintreats Glow Mud Cleanser

I’ve been very impressed with the Pixi Skintreats that I’ve tried so far. It’s a well-priced range of good, not too confusing basics, that perform well, and do what they are supposed to without patronising or bewildering the customers.  Glow Mud Cleanser is a great product from the line, being a clay cleanser that doesn’t strip or dry out the skin. It contains aloe, which […]

Zelens Z Pure Cleansing Liquid Balm

  I’m on such a cleansing kick at the moment, it’s not even funny. Luckily there are some amazing cleansers around right now, and from some great brands too, so I’m actually quite happy about this!  I’ve been dying to try Z Pure Cleansing Balm, from one of my favourite brands; Zelens, since before it was released, and I eventually gave up waiting for my […]

Alpha H Liquid Laser Cleansing Oil

As well as being on a bit of a lipstick kick at the moment, I’m currently obsessed – and I do mean obsessed – by cleansers.  Having recently discovered, and loved, Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, I am currently using that and this Liquid Laser Cleansing Oil in semi-permanent rotation. Another oil-gel-based product, the Liquid Laser range is suitable for older, or duller skins, but is […]

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel

Long-time readers will know I don’t always see eye-to-eye with gel-based products, usually finding them a little too harsh (many gels have an alcohol base, which my skin doesn’t always appreciate.  Gin, on the other hand …) for my stupidly sensitive and extremely prone to redness skin.  So I approached Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel very warily. I needn’t have worried, for this is a delight, […]

Vita Coco Coconut Oil

Okay, I admit it, I love luxury beauty products.  Anyone who has ever had even a slightly cursory glance through some of the posts on this blog will have noticed that.  £250 bottles of perfume, £35+ lipsticks, £50 eyeshadow palettes, £100+ skincare, all are abundant on Get Lippie and I’m not going to make any apologies for that.  I like what I like, and I […]

Lippie’s Lust List #4 – Elemis Luxury Cleansing Cloths

I fupping love these.  And yes, I’m aware a facial cloth is an odd thing to have on a “lust list”, but bear with me.  At a fiver each, they’re not massively cheap, but they’re huge, and soft, and give a wonderful cleansing experience. Somewhat thinner (but not by much) than a regular face cloth, and much bigger in size than my Washi cloths, these […]

Aurelia Miracle Cleanser Review

I’m a firm believer (rightly or wrongly)  that if you get your cleansing routine correct for your skin, then it doesn’t really matter what moisturiser you chuck onto your face afterwards, you can use olive oil, or lard, or whatever, and it will be fine. I can, of course, only base this on my own personal experience, but I spent years labouring under the misapprehension […]
