NOTD: Urban Decay "I.D."

This is an original bottle of "I.D." from days of yore - I got this in 2000, maybe?.. I have a backup bottle I got in Superdrug as they were selling off old stock as well  a few years ago now :) I've featured this before but some days I really just want a juicy pink like this! It is VERY sheer however so I tend to layer it over other polishes, here I layered it over a coat of Rimmel LycraPRO "Urban Princess" to bring out the warm shimmer. I put 2 coats of "I.D." on. I finished off with a coat of Lumos top coat.

I love this :) So summery, just what I needed to ease me into my holiday mode - my second, longer holiday starts on Wednesday!

I finished the trial sizes of Elemis FreshSkin and I do like it! The intense lavender smell might put some people off but I love lavender so it's not a problem for me. A lot of people seem to love the Skin Glow exfoliating wash best but I found it did nothing for me, including exfoliating?.. :-/ I mainly like this range because it's completely free of parabens, SLS, SLES, DEA, mineral oils, artificial oils and silicones. I am not entirely convinced this range suits my needs however - I think I need a more antiaging range (I am getting on a bit after all). Lately I've really developed an intolerance for silicones, creams containing them now make my skin develop breakouts and dry spots  :( If you are worried about silicones and other nasties and trying to go more organic, be aware that they are currently allowed in organic products!! Always read the label, and know the different types of silicones currently used in cosmetics.

I have some trial sizes of Sophyto products coming, that should be exciting to try :) I've heard a lot about their anti-aging serums (silicone free!) and the glycolic cleanser sounds amazing. Hopefully I will be able to review these soon for you.

And a big congratulations to Lizzie Armitstead and Rebecca Adlington for the fantastic work they did in the Olympics to get their medals today - girl power! :D

I love ID too, in fact all those old UD's are fab.

Yeah I've got quite a few of the old UDs, they may be terribly toxic but they are amazing :)
