Win Crème De Lar Mer Products!

Creme de la mer


That’s  right  peeps, after months and years of wanting I finally have the crème de la crème - Crème De La Mer :-) Words could not explain how excited I was when I was presented with the shiny green box, no one had to even tell me what it was, I could see from a mile away!


If you have never heard of Crème De La Mer before, let me tell you a bit about it. Formulated by Dr Max Huber an aerospace physicist, after suffering from scarred skin he decided to produce a moisturiser himself. Numerous attempts later, he found that the blending mix of sea kelp, an array of other ingredients along with creative fermentation he discovered the perfect formula!  


Nicknamed as the ”Miracle” cream, I couldn’t wait to open the box and inside I found the white container and the tiny spatula positioned underneath it. I instantly dipped the spatula in the container and starting rubbing the cream into my face and my first thought was that it is a bit thick for a day cream! A tiny bit disappointed, but not wanting to show my true feelings I thought it would be a good idea to read the leaflet that came with it.


I soon realised that this is what I should of done in the first place! There were clear instructions on how I should scoope out a pea size amount and then rub the cream between the palms of my hands to activate the ingredients. The consistency should change from a white thick consistency to a clear liquid. Once I had mastered this and it took several attempts, I then started rubbing the cream into my face and my first initial disappointment had disappeared! :-)  I have now been using it for a couple of weeks and I don’t know how I lived without it, especially in this winter UK weather I have been experiencing, it is a perfect night cream. My only down side to it, is remembering to apply it earlier in my routine in the morning to give it sufficient time to sink in before I apply my makeup.


But if that is the only flaw I can find compared to the benefits it provides of younger, clearer and radiant skin, they certainly have my vote! Its a bit pricey I know, but definitely worth every penny and lasts a long time!  


So that is my review, how would YOU like the chance to test and review the Crème De La Mer Cleansing Foam (worth £46) AND Lip Balm (Worth £36) courtesy of Thats Girly? I will send one lucky reader the products pictured below to review and keep. Your review will also feature on this site for all of us to read!

Bargain Makeup from Primark

Posted by Thatsgirly on July 23, 2009 - 10:11 pm

primark-makeupI was in Manchester at the weekend for a fab Graduation ceremony (exactly a year today since mine!)  and I couldn’t resist but to head into Manchester city centre for a bit (well a lot) of shopping!


Although there are a lot of designer shops and big department stores in Manchester, I was so happy to come across their big Primark store. I was even more ecstatic to find their new, cheap and funky make up range.


As you can see in the picture they have glammed up their design and it reminds me of a certain brand that have a very similar concept for their packaging (can you guess who?). What I was really impressed with was the price of each product.

£2 for each nail varnish

£2 for the mascara

£2 for the blusher/bronzer


I have tried the nail varnishes and I am very impressed with the colours, there were so many to pick from they are so bright and vibrant and it applies so easily and I only needed to put 2 coats on.  


I was also pleased to find that the duo blusher/bronzer came with a cute little brush that can be stored in the box, it was very easily to apply however I did find by midday it wasn’t very noticeable so it didn’t last very long.


I like the idea of the mascara with the double end that can be used to clean up your mistakes, I find that I am always getting mascara on my eyelids when I am applying in the morning. The mascara is waterproof and it did live up to that, however I found that when I curled my eyelashes it didn’t hold the curl and there was a peculiar smell to the mascara that can be slightly off putting.  


Overall, I would definatly purchase the nail varnishes again, however I’m not so sure on the mascara and blusher/bronzer. But for the price of each product I don’t think I expected any more. If you need cheap quick fixes this is definatly worth considering!!!

Let me know if you have tried this range or if you have found any bargain makeup!!


Seborrhoeic Dermatitis (Eczema)- Update!

Posted by Thatsgirly on July 8, 2009 - 10:27 pm



As promised I thought I would give you all an update on my seborrhoeic dermatits.  In my last post, I had started using  Daktacort cream on my face, which has active ingrediants of hydrocortisone and miconazole nitrate. Although I was a bit apprehensive of using hydrocortisone on my face I noticed a dramatic difference within 1 weeks useage.


After I completed 2 weeks of using Daktacort cream day and night as prescribed by the doctor, I started to use Aloe Vera gel as an alternative. I was also washing my face with Nizoral shampoo in the morning on alternate days followed by Aqueous cream as a face wash. (I also wash my face with Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant every night – I can’t live without it)


Anyway, the aloe vera gel was quite plesant to use, I read several reviews saying the gel can be quite sticky, however I didn’t find this a problem. I also put the gel in the fridge (Daktacort cream has to also go in the fridge) so it was quite cooling to use. :-)


I must admit I can see a vast improvement and I think in some sense I am just relieved that I actually know what to do andhow to control it when I have a flare up.

Let me know if you have ever suffered from something like this.

Facial Eczema – Seborrheic Dermatitis

Posted by Thatsgirly on June 18, 2009 - 10:54 pm

So I have suffered from eczema all my life but it was only until I was around 14 I started to get eczema on my face. As a teenagaer I found this really destressing and plastered my face in make up to cover it up (in hindsight it was probably making it worse!)  


I had a patch test when I was around 18 and I was told that I was allergic to nickel and lanolin (wools grease) which was actually quite a relief to find ingrediants to avoid! I checked the ingrediants of all the products I was using, I noticed my face wipes had lanolin in :-(  so I stopped using them and my skin started to clear up.  


Anyway years had passed and sometimes my face would be fine and other times I would get really bad flare ups (especially around exam time!). I would just bare through it and use hydrocorrisone when it was really bad (which does have side effects when used on a long term basis) and I just learned to live with it. I had given up with going to the doctor as each time he just kept giving me the same treatments!  

I’m not sure what spurred me on but I went to the doctors and usual doctor was not in so I saw the replacement. I told him my problems and he took one look at my face and said I know what you have got seborrheic dematitis. He explained that it was a condition that was very similar to dandruff where the skin is reacting to the yeast on my skin. I was told that there is no cure for this however he did prescribe me Daktacort which is a mix of hydracortisone and miconazole nitrate. He also recommended that I use aqueous cream as a facial wash to help it.

So I am going to start my treatment and I  will keep you updated in two weeks with the results.

Post soon xoxo

Tried and Tested – MAC cleansing Wipes

Posted by Thatsgirly on June 10, 2009 - 11:01 pm



Whilst browsing in my local Cosmetic Company store (which I absolutely love doing every weekend) I came across a excellent bargain – MAC cleansing wipes, 100 for £9.00! I decided this was a must buy and rushed to counter to pay.


In the evening I decided to try the cleansing wipes, I pulled the first wipe out and I noticed it felt quite different to the wipes I normally use (Simple wipes) and the size of the wipes were quite small. Once I removed all of my eye makeup I needed to pull out another one for the rest of my face! I soon decided that I  wasn’t so keen on the wipes, they are not as soft as I thought they would be and they also felt quite chemically. When I was using the wipe it felt like it was stripping too much of the natural oils from my face and left my face quite tight afterwards.


Although the cleansing wipes did the job and removed my makeup, I wasn’t happy with the way it left my skin feeling afterwards.  I love the MAC brand however not so keen on these cleansing  wipes!    

Have you ever tried the wipes? Let me know what you think!
