Tried & Tested

I have always been interested in health and beauty, hence why I have written BODY BACK.

For years I have kept notes and comments on products I have liked, found worked (and still use) or have been a total waste of time and money! I am continually searching for medical and alternative health cures, nutritious secrets, clothes that compliment the figure, and of course the anti-aging miracle.

Welcome to TRIED & TESTED


Mavala Extra Mild Nail Polish Remover (1/5)

So mild it didn’t really take off the nail polish effectively without really soaking the cotton wool and pushing quite hard on the nail.


Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat Nail Polish (3/5)

A relatively good top coat, it does the job of protecting and prolonging the colour beneath it, but I find that if it is put on too thickly it bubbles. Also if it is shaken (as some manicurists do before use, why???) it has more bubbles. These are seen by the delicate eye when it has dried...


Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment, The Body Shop (3/5)

This is a nice hand cream, the vitamin E content provides healthy moisturizing for the skin. The Shea butter may be the ingredient that makes this cream a bit too greasy for my liking.


Graceful Hands Delight, Reverence de Bastien (5/5)

The packaging of this product is the first of it's kind. There are 4 mini hand creams in a very smart silver tin with Bastien's logo on. The great advantage is that the hand creams can be opened one at a time so the product remains fresh (rather than opening a large tube and it lingering for months).


Spa Ritual Nail Varnish Base Coats (3/5)

This brand is vegan, free of DBP, toluene and formaldehyde which makes it the closest polish to organic I suppose.

ESSIE Nail Varnish Colour Mademoiselle (1/5)

This brand has changed ownership. My favourite colour unfortunately appears to have been thinned down.
