Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre is every makeup artist's best-kept secret. Not your typical moisturiser; it's a multi-purpose, 6-in-1 for all skin types. Celebrities and makeup artists sing Lait-Creme's praises for its versatility. It's best known for being an everyday face cream, but it also doubles as a primer, hydrating face mask, calming skin treatment, and makeup remover thanks to added mineral oil that breaks down oil (and lock in moisture). It's no surprise that one is sold every 20 seconds in the UK. A backstage hero, 'Embryolisse' is loved for its simple yet effective formula and sensitive-skin friendly ingredients. The silky cream is packed with soothing and nourishing active ingredients (shea butter, beeswax, aloe vera, soy) and cutting-edge hyaluronic acid, and collagen, which plump the skin in minutes. After use, skin is soothed, smooth and radiant. Skin enthusiasts will love this cult French moisturiser for its hydrating qualities; a pea-size amount makes for a great day cream but layered up it's a rejuvenating overnight mask. The thin, lightweight texture makes it the ideal primer too as it creates a dewy (never greasy) base for makeup. Why We Love It We're not surprised that makeup artists across the globe rave about Embryolisse - it's the moisturiser that keeps on giving. And for us, it doesn't stop at 6-in-1; we recommend mixing Lait-Creme Concentre with your favourite foundation to create a skin-loving tinted moisturiser. How To Use It Use in the morning and/or evening. Massage onto clean, dry skin using a pea sized amount (a little goes a long way). Layer to use as a face mask, and to cleanse, massage onto skin in circular motions to melt away any makeup, then gently remove with a facecloth or splash of water. Top Tip: For a makeup artist finish, apply with a clean foundation brush - you'll waste less product, get a more even finish, and avoid transferring dirt from your hands to your face. Works Well With Lait-Creme Concentre is a part of Embryolisse's Lait-Creme family; explore the rest of the range for more cult-favourite, comforting formulas. Values Paraben-free. Cruelty-free.

I have tired lots of different face products but this is by far the best I have used. I have very dry sensitive skin and the majority of products either do not work for my dry skin or they make me breakout. I tired this product after reading so many great reviews and I'm glad I did. This clears up my dry skin instantly, leaving my face super smooth! And it does not break me out at all. I mostly use this as a moisturiser but I love how it has so many different uses e.g makeup primer, after-sun care, makeup remover etc. The fragrance is pleasent and very light. The texture of the cream is so smooth and doesn't leave your face feeling sticky or oily. I highly recommend this product, especially if you have very dry sensitive skin.

 Nina Ricci Nina Fantasy Eau de Toilette Spray 50ml
Nina Ricci Nina Fantasy Eau de Toilette Spray 50ml
Set your imagination free with the Nina Ricci Nina Fantasy Eau de Toilette, a playful fruity floral scent that encourages you to dream big. Fantasy is inspired by the feelings of anticipation that come with each spring, as the blossoms unfurl and release their beautiful scent to the brightening sky. The delicious blend of Nina Fantasy opens with sparkling notes of Bergamot, Mandarin and Pear for a light-hearted first impression. A cheerful heart of powdery Heliotrope, voluptuous Rose, and delicate Cherry Blossom make for a wonderful signature accord, while a dry down of Vanilla sprinkled with Brown Sugar embraces the body with gourmand sweetness. Top Notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Pear Heart Notes: Heliotrope, Rose, Cherry Blossom Base Notes: Vanilla, Brown Sugar

Sweet, youthful, juicy, fruity, girly, playful, cotton candy, bubblegum, sugary, marshmallow-like fragrance!
Nina Fantasy opens with a sharp sweet blast of fruits dipped in lots of sugar!
The juicy aromas of cherry blossom combined with pear, vanilla and sugar is the perfect combination of sweetness without being sickly sweet or overpowering.
This is the perfect fragrance for day time in the spring and summer!
I highly recommend this fragrance to all fruity-floral lovers and to those that have a sweet tooth.
This Limited Edition fragrance is inspired by spring and magical fairy tale dreams!
The cute adorable bottle matches with the scent perfectly!

Experience a world of ultra femininity and luxury with Prada Candy: pure pleasure wrapped in an impulsive charm. Excess is everything, and the Prada Candy fragrance is pure indulgence, combining exceptionally high quality ingredients in excessive proportions. It is the scent of a hedonistic and provocative girl, a confident darling whose sense of self and sensuality is expressed in the intensity of her fragrance. The unique and provocative cocktail is impossible to ignore, instantly seducing the senses with a wild shock of pink and gold. Timeless Musks drape concentrated Benzoin and Caramel, making for a deliciously unexpected signature that retains the sophisticated Prada charm. Musks- A refined veil with a silky, powdery texture. Benzoin- Addictive and sensual, with warm and sweet vanilla-scented honey accents. Caramel- A playful and unexpected note with a sweet and delicious character.

Warm, rich, foody, comforting, soft, smooth, cosy fragrance with a touch of class!
Prada Candy is a little bit bakery and a little bit plasticy. Like walking into a shoe store and someone eating a big cookie nearby.
This fragrance really is exactly as the notes say, just a mixture of benzoin, musk and caramel. For me the benzoin note is the strongest note at the beginning of application, which dries down to a delicate musky base.
Candy is not a sillage monster, nor is it a heavy fragrance. It stays close to the skin but I found the longevity to be very good!
This is the sort of fragrance you would wear for the autumn and winter time as it has a certain ‘warmness’ to it.
Nice scent in a beautiful classy bottle!
