    OK, my list is long and complicated so will be up tomorrow. All my favourite products and things that actually do what they claim to do, along with those that are just a waste of money.

    Serious request. Please remove my name from the original post. Thanks.

    Don't waste your money on expensive facial creams, just use hemerroid cream to reduce any unsightly wrinkles. (_;)

    Gel Polish is the way to go if you want to to do it yourself at home. Get yourself a UV lamp like this one. Gel lasts way longer than regular varnish. I do mine myself when I can be bothered, otherwise I go to the salon. Either way, one application lasts 2 weeks. OPI is the best brand gel polish.

    If you just want regular polish, the best ones I've used are no7. Decent range of colours and very long lasting compared to other brands. Just never EVER forget top coat.

    It may not surpise you to hear that i dont like people touching me so i would want to do it myself X)

    Just looked at the gel polish. It does say light. Why does it need the light? To dry quicker?

    X) basically, yes. Gel polish is much thicker than regular polish, so air drying it alone usually isn't enough unless you want to sit there for ages, and I mean Ages, without moving. The UV light dries it in around 10 minutes and penetrates deep enough for it to dry evenly. If you're going for gel, I'd definitely recommend the light. Also, you can't just take the polish off as you would normally with nail varnish remover. You need strong acetone in a small bowl, put the bowl in a larger bowl containing hot water and soak your nails until you can peel the polish off.

    It is a bit of an effort, but you'll have beautiful, chip free nails for at least 2 weeks.

    Sweet of you both to notice . Should have stopped after the wine been on the sofa all day. Think I've watched 12 hours of Halle Berry today

    It works better than Thars, it's mad and great. Thars is nearly impossible to get over here too.

    I have loads of useless hair growing knowledge kicking round in my head somewhere. So there's that I guess. Don't do nail polish anymore, prefer length over colour.

    Face scrub recommendation from me:

    St. Ives Naturally Clear range

    PS. I was speaking with somebody recently (that had worked at Boots for 20+ years), & she said that the No.7 face moisturiser range was the only high street cream/lotion proven to be effective by clinical trial/scientific research.

    I don't know what is more worrying...

    You have hair growing inside your head, or you managed 12 hours of Halle Berry.

    I've heard good things about St Ives, but never tried it. Perhaps I should

    Do you know what it was supposed to be effective for in clinical trials?

    From what I understand, if an anti-wrinkle cream was actually effective, it would have to be classified as a drug, not a cosmetic. Which is why I haven't bothered with any of them.

    If effective at moisturizing, then surely all it has to do is stop skin losing moisture. Which is quite simple.

    That's a lot of Halle berry X) hopefully you're feeling a little better now. I think 80% of the country were probably feeling the same as you today. X) surprisingly the amaretto didn't effect me too badly.

    I don't think I've ever used thars. Maybe something to look up for me

    Hair growing is always welcome too, I don't really have any hair tips apart from use straightners religiously and coconut oil X)

    I used to get nail extensions all the time before, but ended up being too time consuming and would also damage my nails, so now I just polish when I can be bothered.
