Today let’s talk a little about the products I used up in June and there is a few bits and pieces this month. Like most of my fellow beauty addicts, I have quite a bit of makeup, skincare and haircare products. For that reason I try to use as many as possible before buying more, that was my big aim this past month! Plus I was running out of space to put all the products, ah the struggles.
So let me take you through these products and whether I liked, or didn’t like them.
Sukin oil balancing and pore refining facial scrub: I reviewed this range in my last blog post so I won’t go in depth too much, but let’s just say I love the product and it really did reduce my pores
Be Fresh makeup remover wipes: I do not hate, nor love this product. Does it remove my makeup? Well yes, it does but it leaves my skin feeling like it needs to be cleansed and washed which can be a bit frustrating if I just want to take off my makeup and go.
Moving on, I finished quite a few body shop products and samples that I had laying at the bottom of my bathroom draws.
Body butter: I love The Body Shop’s body butters, they almost always smell amazing and really hydrates the skin. I was disappointed with the frosted cranberry body butter, the scent was overwhelming and very powerful which was not something I enjoyed, however, the mango scent was just right and I loved slathering it over my body
Frosted cranberry shower gel: much like the body butter, the shower gel was way too overpowering for me to enjoy using it. However, I do enjoy the formula of the Body Shop’s shower gels
British Rose Body Scrub: I loved this product, it smelt amazing and had fine grains inside the shower gel like formula which exfoliated the skin and left my body feeling smooth and smelling incredible.
Himalayan Charcoal Mask: My lord, this is the best face mask I have ever tried. It removes dead skin cells and unblocks my pores while leaving my skin glowing and purified. Better yet, it does not break me out and actually removes pimples that are arising. Would highly recommend this face mask.
Maybelline Super Stay Concealer: This was definitely one that was disappointing, while I used it all I would not repurchase again. I usually love Maybelline products but this was a definite flop. I could not put it underneath my eyes as it would make it look cakey and crease so easily, not to mention the oxidisation that occurred. I used this product on spots I had, but other than that I would use a different concealer to actually conceal and brighten up my under eyes, nose, chin etc.
Cetaphil Cleanser: I received this in May’s bellabox and surprisingly it lasted me 2-3 weeks. At first, I disliked this product as it felt like it was gliding over the top layer of skin and not actually cleaning my face. I then used it with a facial puff and I saw and felt definite improvements. It cleansed my face well and while I probably wouldn’t buy it for myself I would recommend it to anyone who has sensitive skin.
La Roche Posay Micellar Water: I used this product every morning to remove the dirt that built up on my face throughout the night and it left my skin feeling refreshed, clean and soft. While I didn’t test it out for makeup removal I would definitely purchase again to quickly and easily cleanse my face of a morning.
Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo: Last but not least is this beauty. I loved this product so much, not only did it remove excess oil from my roots but it smelled incredible! I will definitely be repurchasing this product again. The only recommendation I have for those with dark roots is to make sure you rub it into your hair well or it will leave a white residue that obviously isn’t very flattering.
That’s all for this months empties, you can purchase goodies that appeal to you by clicking on the links for the selected products. I hope you all have a fantastic day and I will speak to you all soon!
