Back by popular demand: brutally honest cosmetics reviews

Well, you spoke and I listened: I’m reviving my snarky cosmetics reviews.

So many readers said they’d like me to reprise the series, so after a brief break (for my own sanity – I can’t stand being this high-maintenance!) they’re back.

This month, I will be trying out four neglected beauty products from my cupboard to see whether they’re worth keeping.

As in previous months, I’ll be sampling the products on one side of my face/body/wherever and getting my wife, Ruth, to guess which side has been getting the treatment.

Only the very best survive. It’s like the Hunger Games – for my face.

For the third round of the experiment, I’ll be testing out:

Four beauty products

For the hands: Neal’s Yard Geranium and Orange Hand Cream

For the body: Ragdale Hall body scrub

For the face: Radial Super Acids X-treme Acid Rush Peel

For the lips: Korres Guava Lip Butter

If anyone needs to catch up on previous installments of my silly reviews, here they are:

Round One results

Round Two results

And, given that this is a fairly short post, let me point you towards an interview I’ve recently done with the lovely Gilbert Index blog here. We discuss low-tech finance hacks, panic attacks and getting drunk at a Japanese festival. What’s not to like?

    Love it! I’m trying to imagine you only applying hand cream to just one hand! Are you just using one fingertip from the other hand to dab it on then massage it in – I love these highly technical tests and reviews!
