      I got it as a gift from my husband for Christmas last year so I'm not sure I'm afraid xxx

    What is the thing you do instead of the Dermaroller? Could not get the name. Great video as usual

    Gemma, what does your necklace say? I love your comprehensive reviews. You face is adorable and you have the most elegant hands and nails. Any tips for their care?

      It spells Wolf Stephanie. My nails are deteriorating quite rapidly with age I'm afraid. I'm trying my best to look after them with cuticle oil and will update in another 'how to' video. xxx

    Just popping back in here to say that I picked up the Revolution nail polish (goodness shipped all the way from the UK!) and it is every bit as good as you said! I haven't been painting my nails for years bc it took so much time, and this stuff was dry before I knew it. ❤️

          I use tretinoin on the same night of derma rolling. You just have to build up to it. Gradually...

            It's not advisable as the tretinoin will get too deep into the skin xxx

          I use the real techniques expert face brush and dip in the loreal true match powder, i like it, i've had more luck with that than the bareminerals one but the loreal one is having most of the shades discontinuing in boots so the woman told me

            Fun video! Really hope you do these kinda frequently. Even when the products are ones I would never use, whether because of price, or just because I feel it wouldn't work for my skin, I still love your videos. They're always a hoot, and they always have good tips and techniques. You always seem happy and upbeat. Whether you always feel that way, or not, you still pull it off. You're doing a great job. Thanx, for all you do. 💜

                    What is tretinoin? Is it a medication that you take orally? I have heard you mention it, but I did not see a video describing it.

                      Pampered Wolf   1 months back

                      The video will be coming. Tretinoin is like retinol in a cream or gel formula....it's 100 times stronger than retinol xxx

                        I wonder why anyone does "fails" because what works for one person might not work for another. Far more useful to know what you like. Telling us about your reconsideration of products is great idea!!

                          Pampered Wolf   1 months back

                          I agree with you Shelley. I think it also works the other way around though too. So what I like isn't going to work for everyone. I think as long as I say exactly why I don't like something, that will give people an idea on whether that would specifically work for them. I've always shied away from negative reviews in the past, and did them only when necessary. xxx

                        Hi Jemma! We'd love a video on your tretinoin journey! I'm super curious about how long it took you to adjust and reach daily use comfortably. Much love to you and Mum🌺

                          That video will be coming in the next few months. I'm waiting 6 months to make sure I cover all areas and review the whole journey. I'm loving it at the moment, and had absolutely no irritation whatsoever, but I've been using retinol for a few years now so my skin isn't overly sensitive xxx

                        Hi Jemma. I was a little surprised that the packaging on the L'Oreal mineral foundation doesn't work. It is my favorite packaging for talc based finly milled finishing powders. Perhaps the mineral powder particles cling to one another and eventually block the pores of the mesh. Too bad. It could have been a lovely product to wear.

                        • Pampered Wolf
                          Pampered Wolf   1 months back

                          It's as if the mineral powder is slightly damp and therefore can't get through the mesh. Very frustrating. I like the product, but not as much as bare minerals xxx

                        I may have horse hide Ha Ha. I can derma roll, wait 24 hours and apply Vit c and retin A. No problem, but I'm closer to your moms age. Maybe skin gets tougher as you age. Loved the video with your kids and always watch you with mum.☺️

                              It's on my list. I was very excited about it after Charlotte Holdcroft tried it earlier this week and it looked beautiful. If you want to check her review out you won't be disappointed xxx

                            Let's think - how many of these have I bought on your recommendation!! The NYX brow product is my current fave, and works so well for me. I haven't experienced the smudging, and I love the natural color, so a fave! You already know I love the CYO foundation and now have 4 back ups! So glad you finally came around to the YSL high coverage concealer, for an older skin, this is perfect. I have two colors .5 & .75 that I mix and it is very natural. The No.7 high end stuff is rubbish (am I being harsh?) and doesn't do a thing. Great video!

                              Couldn't agree more on the NYX Fill & Fluff - such a shame as I love their products (introduced by you!!) and this is useless after first go - as you say - the end just smudges and loses its "sharpness".  Thanks as always - great videos!

                                I love the fill and fluff. I don’t have the issues being precise. It lasts over 12 hours for me but I use a brow setting with it. Believe me if it can last through me sweating like mad at work I’m sold. I love that you are doing a fav and fails! Please do more.

                                        Thanks for the 'heads up' for Revolution high gloss. Was looking at them in Superdrug last week (they were doing 3 for 2)as they were new but hadn't looked at reviews yet. Will definitely pick them up now. Small but gorgeous range of colours x

                                          Great video Gemma. I can’t believe they are discontinuing the cyo foundation. Will have to try and pick up a couple of my colour next time I’m in town although I always struggle to find it in stock as it is. I am definitely going to try the revolution nail polish ❤️ xx

                                            thank you so very much for this post. i had bought the dermaroller after watching your video two months ago. i watched all the videos from the founder of the company. i told my son what i had, still in the box, and he took it from me. he was emphatic that i NOT use it. he works with the cosmetic surgeon/medical spa communities here. after he talked to me i decided NOT to use it. and negotiated him paying for treatments (hah). ive watched this video with the subtitles (my hearing is waning). would you please let me know what you are using on your skin now. it sounds like tresnowing? subtitles are useless. you are my go to for skin care/make up. thank you so much, thank you so much, thank you so much.

                                              I use Tretinoin on my skin which is awesome. Well done for getting your son to help pay for your treatments....I just need someone to pay for mine now. Haha! xx

                                              I was told by ItCosmetics that they do keep in mind that people like to brighten their under eyes, hence medium is matching the medium foundation ( but brightened under the eyes). Personally I really dislike the new concealer formula.

                                                Dip a a brush into the loreal powder and it picks up the perfect amount of product. It's actually genuinely great. You don't need a big brush for mineral powder anyways.

                                                  That is really a big part of nail polish longevity is the base coat/topcoat....but polish stays longer...it just does.... know it’s a pain, but that was my experience in the 30 plus years of doing manicures....that and fast drying drops....

                                                  The cyo foundation is my holy grail foundation and I will be stocking up on this x I hate the way companies do this and then bring out a more expensive version shame on you Boots!

                                                    could you do a video on starting to use tret and tips as a lot of people are using it and some of us don't have a clue , read reports about peeling etc which puts me off! thanks

                                                      I will do Alison. It will take a while though as I want to give the products 5-6 months before I form a proper opinion xxx

                                                    Please, please, please do a comparison of the CYO and Soap and Glory foundations! I won't trust the dupe-ability unless you "sign off" on it! Lol!

                                                        I use Tretinion 0.05% and I derma roll once a fortnight. I usually do it on a Friday evening and don't use my Tret till Monday evening. I really nourish my skin over the weekend. Agree that Tretinion is the greatest!!
