    Thanks for this Ruth, I am definately checking out the Garnier if I can persuade someone else to go and get it for me! And as for the Becca Pearl I have had mine for at least 3yrs and whilst I don’t wear it ever day, there is a miniscule dent in its contents – I also applaud the fact that it has an spf of around 20 I think. Looking forward to the Becca video – I did mine, gah sounded like a robot in a far away tin can, but have no software or understanding of anything recording wise, may try again using son’s SLR…we shall see.

      That sounds amazing! If you covered your entire face in the Pearl you could make yourself LOOK like a robot too! Maybe it could be a trademark feature, the robot voice effect?! I love that you have been roping your son intovblog-related jobs recently!

    Great round-up of products. The Garnier Tinted Eye Roll-on looks great and I love the look of the Sisley bronzing gel…maybe a little out of my price range! I like how you’ve included a mix of high end and more affordable products. x

      Thanks! I do try to include a wide range of price brackets, even though I do tend to lean towards the more expensive! There are lots of good, cheap products out there though, so it makes my life easier!

    I just watched you and the Mia man – bit creepy when he took your hand and vibrated on you…

    I bought my Mia from ebay for £99 UK seller justdebeauty-uk last summer. They are still listed but are now £104.99 buy it now price.

    Just thought I’d let you all know if you want one sooner rather than later! lindsey x

    Hi Ruth,

    I loved the look of the Sisley bronzing gel, but waaaay out of my price range. Maybe you could try and find a less expensive one for us girls on a budget?

    Love your blogs/reviews/videos.
