OK, OK, I know I say it every time but I really didn’t mean to have this many empties again! They just get away from me so easily and before I know it I can barely fit them on my sticky back marble board! I’ll do my best to keep it short and sweet and will link any full reviews of the products I’m talking about too!
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum
Probably my favourite serum ever, this is a constant repurchase for me! It’s lightweight, hydrating and sinks in quickly, I love it and you can hear more about it in this post!
Caudalie Eau de Beaute Beauty Elixir
I’ve went through a few bottles of this but I think recently I’ve been using mists that have more benefits for my skin. Saying that, this is lightweight and feels refreshing and I love the scent but I don’t think I will be repurchasing any time soon.
Papaya Gold Paw Paw Moisturising Balm
I bought this mistakenly thinking it was the cult Dr Paw Paw balm and I generally don’t like Vaseline/petroleum jelly type products which is what this feels like with the addition of Manuka Honey. I only used this on my lips overnight and it did a good job of keeping them hydrated but I probably won’t repurchase as I already have so many other lip products.
DNA Renewal Eye Renewal
I got this in a Cult Beauty GWP ages ago and I absolutely loved it! It lasted me ages too! It’s a lightweight cream that sinks in straightaway and kept my eye area hydrated. It was perfect for both day and night use and I was gutted when it finished! At £44, I won’t be repurchasing straight away but it is definitely a product I will come back to!
Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes Dark Circle Radiance Concentrate
Another Cult Beauty GWP special (can you tell I love those offers!) this only lasted me about a week but it felt a little thicker that the DNA Eye Renewal though still lightweight enough for day use. I don’t have massively dark circles under my eyes so can’t say much for its claims but again I would repurchase in the future though out of the two, I preferred the DNA Renewal!
Mint Skin Mud Detox and Hydrating Clay masks*
I have a couple of these masks here and I absolutely love them! I have a full review on both here but in short the detox mud worked wonder on my nose blackheads and the hydrating mask is perfect for the dehydrated skin I have round my nose! Both are gentle yet effective and I highly recommend them! I have some more to use up and I’m keeping some past for a wedding I have in March because I love the results they give!
L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Re-balancing Shampoo
This was a very popular shampoo when it came out a while ago and I generally jump on anything that promises to help with greasy hair! Overall, I really liked the shampoo and I do regularly buy L’Oreal shampoos but this didn’t make my hair any less greasier. It did smell lovely and made my hair shiny so I would repurchase. I also have the shampoo and clay hair mask in this range so they will probably pop up soon too – conditioners take me ages to finish!
L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo
It was a good month for finishing shampoo and here we have another L’Oreal one! Again, I really like these shampoos and the scent of them but as I have such long hair, volume doesn’t come easy for me. This didn’t weigh it down or make it go any greasier than normal so I would repurchase! I will however always miss the L’Oreal Elvive Nutrigloss Light shampoo that was discontinued!
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk*
This is a lovely dry shampoo, it smells so fresh! My hair always looked shiny rather than greasy when I used this on second day hair and though it’s a little dearer than what I would normally pay for a dry shampoo at £8, it’s often included in Escentual’s French pharmacy 1/3 off promotion and 3 or 2’s at Boots so I would repurchase when on offer! Full review here!
OUAI Treatment Masque
I got a pack of these in another GWP from Cult Beauty (can you tell I’ve been getting through my samples this month!) and having loved everythingelse I’ve tried from Jen Atkin’s range, this did not disappoint! It made my hair feel lovely and soft as well as smooth and I got two uses out of this satchet! I’m not completely sure if I’d repurchase though as I love the conditioner too and it does pretty much the same job and I always forget about treatments!
Soap and Glory The Scrub of your Life
This is probably my second favourite scrub from Soap and Glory (Pulp Friction always being my favourite!). I love the scent of this and though it doesn’t lather as much as Pulp Friction, with the help of some exfoliating gloves it does a great job of removing my tan! Will repurchase!
Sass Perfect Me Skin Concentrate
I’m only really realising this now but this is actually an intimate body product! I just used it on my legs after waxing or epilating and I loved it! My hairs grow back quite fine anyway because I have been getting waxed for years but this made my legs feel so smooth and I think the hairs grew back even slower! It’s scented but not very strongly and has a pump while the product itself is a gel like texture. I got this in a beauty box but I would definitely repurchase and try it on my bikini line too next time!
Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel
My old favourite Snow Fairy, probably the most childish candy floss scented product ever but I love it! This is actually from Christmas last year, how bad is that? I have a few more to get through from Christmas just past too, its limited edition but I will repurchase when its back later this year!
Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel
This was the first time I’d tried the infamous Rose Jam shower gel and it smells lovely! It felt moisturising too and I actually get a lot of use out of these mini 100g shower gels! Would repurchase!
Balance Me Rose Otto Hand Cream
Not a fan of this at all, it felt greasy, took ages to absorb even when I only put a little on and I ended up only using this at night time because of this! The scent was OK but I would not repurchase this.
Nivea Age Defying Hand Cream
Now this I would repurchase! Nivea do my favourite hand creams ever, they smell amazing, absorb quickly and make my hands so soft as well as being affordable! I have a full review of their new look hand creams here!
Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream
This is super sticky and takes a bit of work to apply but I absolutely love it! It smells lovely and works so well on rough skin on my heels and bottom of my feet. Would repurchase!
NARS Sheer Glow
This is such a beautiful foundation! It has a medium/full coverage so it’s definitely not sheer and it doesn’t have a glowy finish either. I actually didn’t like this the first time I used it, I didn’t think it lasted well on my oily skin at all and it wore off really easily on my chin. After using it a few more times though I grew to really like it, it evens out my complexion and lasts all day now with a few powder touch-ups during the day. I am however glad to be finished this! I think it’s about two years old though it has a 24 month expiry date so it’s fine. I will definitely repurchase in the future as this comes quite close to my all-time favourite Estee Lauder Double Wear but I want to finish up a few other foundations beforehand!
SEVENTEEN Falsifeye HD Mascara*
This is a lovely mascara for a natural look. It gives a lot of separation and length to my lashes but I probably won’t repurchase because I rarely wear mascara that isn’t waterproof!
I am obsessed with Beauty Blenders, they give the best finish for me and I wouldn’t be without one now! £16 is a lot to spend on a sponge but Beauty Blenders definitely feel the softest to me and give the best bounce making it so easy to apply my foundation evenly! They also last a good 6 months for me washing it daily! Will repurchase!
Congratulations if you got through all that! I already have half a box full of empties I’ve acquired since taking the photos for this post so that will be up sometime next month! Let me know what you have been finishing recently or if you’ve tried anything I’ve talked about!
