Review: Soap & Glory What a Peeling Purifying De-Clog Mask

Soap & Glory What a Peeling Purifying De-Clog Mask

Who doesn’t want unclogged pores and clear skin? Which is why on a whim I picked up the recently launched Soap & Glory What a Peeling Purifying De-Clog Mask. Let’s not faff around and get into.

Within the pack you get two pods and a spatula for application, so with each pod as a single use from one purchase you either get two uses or can use the mask on a pamper night with a friend. The two pods are a great way to get multiple uses out of the product especially as a peel off which can start to ball up with exposure to air, it also helps break down at the cost at £2.00 per mask it lines up with what you can expect to

According to the Soap & Glory website the mask promises to: “Just like you, this peel-off mask is totally hard pore. Liquid gel transforms into the lift-off paper strip to smooth, purify and remove all gunk and junk (including blackheads) in one go – it’s so a-peeling! Our multi-tasking mask is power-packed with 10 amazing ingredients including: Kaolin and Bentontie Fine Clay Powders to help absorb excess oil; White Willow Bark to help oil skin; Vitamin C to boost tired Complexions; and scented with exotic tropical fruit.”

“OOO its pink!” the only thought that came into my head as I peeled back the foil of my first pod to try the item for the first time. I don’t know what I was expecting but I wasn’t expecting the brightness of the pink but I love it anyway and it makes it a bit more fun, not quite The Crème Shop level of fun no Pandas, Racoons or Penguins here but you don’t get the same luxury of these possibilities with a peel off mask.

The pack comes with a spatula which is a great idea but I just didn’t seem to get in with it as it is simply too small, making the application longer, more messy and fiddly. In the end I just chucked it and went for the back to basics option of using by hands to apply and I think it just provided a more through and even application of the mask. The mask itself has a thick gloopy textured which weirdly reminded me of PVA, like back in the primary school days where you’d cover your hands in PVA, wait for it to dry and peel it off, ah simpler times.

The thicker texture does mean you can really feel it on your face but it doesn’t bother me too much and it makes you feel like you are doing something good for your skin. After application, you are meant to apply and leave it for 25 minutes by this point it should be fully dry and you can peel off the mask in one go. I must admit it took a lot of will power for me to wait the 25 minutes, as I tend to peel off these types of masks in small sections as each part dries but I wanted to give the mask a proper go. After about 10 or 15 minutes, the masks started to peel around my mouth as it had full dry and as I was talking drinking although it didn’t touch the mask itself it did mean the mask once dry started to peel away from the mouth making it slightly uncomfortable but I persevered. After about 20 minutes the mask had mostly dried, and started to feel tight, letting me know it was almost ready. After 25/30 minutes there was a small patch that hadn’t quite dried, which I think is where I may have accidently applied it that but thicker but the mask was tight and the loosening section around my mouth and nose had started to get pretty uncomfortable so I just had to take it off. To my amazement the mask did in fact peel off all in one, with the exception of the small still non-set area which I had to remove separately.

Soap & Glory What a Peeling Peel Of Mask Pot

Examining the mask afterwards, you can tell that its pulled something out of the skin and my face felt so much clearer. I really enjoyed using this mask and loved using the second pod two as my skin has been slightly problematic the past two weeks, and I feel like this has really helped with the improvement of it. I always wonder sometimes with the Soap and Glory skincare, but these masks definitely feel work it. The pack of two pods is £4.00 from the likes of Boots, making it £2.00 for mask which in reality is a really affordable price especially for a single use mask that really works. Also, if you are apprehensive Boots regularly has offers on Soap & Glory so wait for something that works for you. I’m even tempted to pack a pod with me when I go away later in the year so I can keep on top of my skin while travelling.

Have you tried any of the new Soap & Glory masks, let me know in the comments as I am curious to try more.

Review: Garnier Skin Active Matcha & Kaolin Mask

Garnier SkinActive Match & Kaolin Mask

I simply cannot resist trying yet another face mask, whenever I see a mask I am curious about that is highly affordable I just pick it up. I’ve loved the Garnier Skin Active Masks and other products I have tried in the past, in fact I always have a Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask (review here ) on hand so I thought trying another product in the range. So how did I get on with the Garnier Skin Active Matcha & Kaolin Mask?

The Matcha & Kaolin Mask is part of Garnier’s range of new clay mask and promises to: “A new generation of face mask combining Matcha Tea and Kaolin Clay in a creamy-clay texture that purifies for refreshed, mattified and clean skin. Proven Effectiveness: Immediately: Impurities are removed and skin appears mattified. Long-lasting: effectiveness: skin appears purified as if rebalanced.”

Like any clay mask you work it into your skin, leave for 10 minutes and wash off, it had been a while since I’ve used a clay face mask so was apprehensive that I may find it way to heavy on the skin but I was pleasantly surprised. Compared to clay masks I have used in the past this was light but build-able to create a thick layer, the texture in the hands not to dissimilar in texture and consistency to the George Matte Foundation that I reviewed the other day. Which meant it was comfortable on the skin, and I found it comfortable to wear and get on with everything else I was getting up to while testing it out. It also has a lovely subtle fresh scent, close to green tea but nothing overpowering and I’ll definitely call it fresh than anything definitive.

Despite covering with a reasonably thick layer, I found that it tried in about 5 minutes or so but I ensured I kept it on till it was completely dry all over, as I forgot to track the time exactly but I imagine it would have been at least 10 minutes. Initially this mask felt really comfortable but as it dried it got really tight, making it uncomfortable but it definitely gives you the impression it’s working.

Afterwards my skin felt cleaner and clearer, but in the hours and days after the actual condition of my skin was no different. So, I’m not 100% sure its done anything, although in general it feels like and way enjoyable to use which is all you want from a mask. Also, I do not have oily skin I have the odd oily patch but in general my skin is dry so this may not offer the same benefits to me that it might offer to someone else.

I picked up the Garnier Skin Active Matcha & Kaolin Mask in Primark for £1.00, but it is available from a wide range of stores including Superdrug and Boots selling for between £1.00 and £1.50. All in all, these are always worth a shot as everyone’s skin is different and an affordable one time use mask is always a great option in my opinion. Let me know in the comments what your favourite masks are, I cannot wait to try some more out.

Review: The Crème Shop Slow Down, Skin! Sheet Mask

The Creme Shop Slow Down, Skin!

Doesn’t everyone want to be a panda? No just me? Oh well I’m still going to write this review, of the totally fun face masks. I’ve tried two other Crème shop face masks before one of which you can see the review for here, I’ve previously tried the Drink Up Skin which I loved and I got to be a penguin while the racoon was Wake Up Skin a refreshing and moisturising mask where you get to be a racoon.

This time it’s the The Crème Shop Slow Down, Skin! Sheet mask, where I get to enjoy been a panda. Which promises to: “Can’t bear aging skin? Boost elasticity and structure with this silica-rich mask. Infused with bamboo extract, this panda rebuilds timeworn skin in no time.”  By no means to I have aging skin really at 23 it’s important to moisturise and take care of my skin but I do not need to focus on anti-aging yet, I mainly want to see how this compares to the others how it feels on the skin. Once again I think these masks are so fun to wear, it just adds a little bit of fun to wearing a cartoon style sheet mask.

The Creme Shop Slow Down, Skin! Sheet Mask

The mask is a perfect size and shape for the face, with gaps for the relevant facial features. I find unlike other masks that the Crème Shop definitely have a shape that is a more ergonomic fit and is way more comfortable and simple to arrange on the face. I’d say the sheet appears cloth like, although I am not sure 100% what these are made of out of the many I’ve tried they are some of the most resilient being easy to unfold and use. There’s no doubt that I enjoy a Crème shop mask but these are not hugely moisture adding, leaving more of a tingling feeling and not an enjoyable one. Although this came in a pack of 3, after trying the first mask I have passed them on personally I just didn’t enjoy using the mask so knew I wouldn’t use them. I had such a positive with the other two masks that I couldn’t wait to use these ones but really just didn’t enjoy them.

All in all skip these and try the others I mentioned previously, or the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask those I love. Let me know which masks you like in the comments, as I always love a good mask.

Review: Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Tissue Bomb

garnier-skinactive-moisture-bomb-tissue-mask

Hi guys I’m back, sorry for my absence but life got manic and I just felt so tired so I took a break for a little bit of relaxation and recuperation was in order. I found myself not wanting to right so I gave myself grace and took the time off, but I’m back and motivated so here is the post you are actually here for . . .

Spoiler Alert! This mask is great, I already mentioned it in my January Favourites , so it can be somewhat difficult to pretend I don’t love it. Instead of thinking about the fact I’ve enjoyed using the mask I thought it would be a good time to see how it compares to its claims and look at it more objectively to see if it’s worth picking up, after all I have a major obsession with sheet masks in general.

The Boots website describes the mask as: “Super-hydrating revitalising mask for dehydrated skin. Intensely rehydrates skin, reduces the look of fine lines, and revives radiance. Enriched with pomegranate extract, hyaluronic acid, and plant serum.”

I have to say this is the easiest mask I have ever put on my face, with the plastic sheet attachment the sheet does not stick itself together and its quick to lay on your face. Once you peel away the plastic layer you are left with the simple sheet mask and this easily fits to all of the contours of your face, the gaps are a good size and the mask sits well on the face not expanding too fair so it goes into your hair line etc.

The serum feels deeply hydrating and its comfortable on the skin, and although you are aware that the mask is there when in use its not irritating or annoying. On the several occasions, I have used it I was amazed at how well it stayed put, I can write blog posts, read a book and even do some chores it stays perfectly put. I think this is down to it having that right level of serum, not too much that it slides all over the place and not too little that it offers no benefit to the skin.

So believe the hype this mask is so worth trying out and seeing if it can help your skin too. Compared to other hyped products it’s so easy to find in Boots, Superdrug and even supermarkets like Tesco and Asda stock it, often on offer as well at £0.99 so one of the most affordable sheet masks out there that really packs a punch.

January Favourites

BRR! January has been bloody cold hasn’t it? I cannot wait for Spring to roll round for slightly better temperatures. Still one month into January I’m keeping on my new years resolutions and hopefully 2017 will shape up to be a good year. So what have I been loving in January 2017 . . .

jan-faves-garnier-tissue-mask

I don’t want to say too much as I want to do a full review shortly but the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask has been a saviour this month. My skin has been so dry recently and this has refreshed my skin, but I will post the full review shortly.

jan-fave-kiko-face-brush

New year and a new way to mix up my makeup routine, I have been really enjoying using the Kiko Milano Skin Tone Foundation Brush. It aids smooth and flawless makeup application, if you want to know more why not check out my review from the start of the month.

jan-faves-no-7-limitied-edition-nail-polish

This time of year is always weird with what colours to wear, vampy and reds feel weird after Christmas but it’s way too soon to break out the pastels and brights. I’m back on the neutral/nude band wagon and I’ve really been loving the No 7 Limited Edition Nail Colour in Brown, pretty and perfect for everyday. I also think it goes with everything and looks smart and manicure.

A bit of a short favourites this month as I have been re using a lot of the same products, maybe I will start to mix everything up again shortly. Let me know what you have you been loving this month, let me know in the comments so I can check them out.

Review: H&M Coconut Water Face Mask

hm-beauty-coconut-water-face-mask

The winter weather, indoor heating and a general tendency towards dry skin means at this time of year my skin always needs a little bit of extra help. In steps the H&M Coconut Water Moisturising face mask, which is the start of my dabbling in the H&M beauty range so here goes nothing.

The face masks all come in these little pods and are priced at £1.99 each, which realistically not too bad. There were a few options for each skin type and I am dry combination so I picked up two, the Coconut Water Moisturising Face Mask and the Raspberry Lead Peel Off Mask (check out my review here). The H&M website  describes this mask as “Coconut water with rich cocoa butter and shea butter, this coconut water mask will leave your skin feeling moisturized and soft to the touch”. As I suffer from dry patches of skin especially at seasonal changes, this seemed like a great option due to the shea butter which is always a love of mine for dry skin. The little pod has about two uses in it and after using I managed to decant it into a little pot and used again a week later. This may also seal up fine with cling film so at around £1.00 per use it works out similar to a number of other products.

So did it live up to its expectation? I found this one a little off to begin with, it’s like applying a thick heavy moisturiser that work quite work into the skin so you give up and leave it me. Over the course of the next ten minutes or so it soaks into your skin, no longer leaving a white layer just sitting on the odd patches, then you simply was off the finally bit and you’re done. It some patches my skin felt a little greasy but where my dry patches are my skin felt moisturised and happier. It you have deeply dehydrated skin then use all over, but I think from now on this is best used when multi-masking focusing on the drier areas.

This mask definitely feels more worth it than the Raspberry Leaf mask I tried previously, its deeply hydrating and offers multiple uses. So if you are a sufferer of dry skin, next time you’re in H&M looking at leggings and cute clothes why not pick this up too.

Review: The Creme Shop Drink Up, Skin! Face Mask

The Creme Shop Drink Up Skin! Penguin Sheet MAsk

In case you missed my Instagram the past day or so, I became obsessed with this mask from the first time I tried it. It’s such a fun mask and it really works, sorry to spoil the review in the first sentences, so you don’t need to ready further if you don’t want to but if you want a proper breakdown of it by all means carry on.

So what are my proper thoughts on The Crème Shop Drink Up, Skin! Hyaluronic Acid Animated Face Mask past simply loving it? Well let’s start with the type of mask, I have recently discovered a love for sheet masks now you can get a bad one every so often but when you find a good one they are one of the best forms out there. With the right formula this no mess, simple application and always hydrating masks are a great option for those that want a face mask without the mess. These masks have to be one of the wettest ones I have tried with a lovely gel like solution, and the mask is a well-made material so it doesn’t go out of shape and holds a lot of mask. I also like the size of this one, slightly smaller than others I’ve tried with a rounder shape I found it sits on the face perfectly no awkward sports or places where there is an excess of material. Also the eye, nose and mouth placements seem perfect for me.

My skin felt great after using it and stayed feeling hydrated for a few days after, I just cannot believe how nice this mask was to use. I don’t think I can talk about this mask without talking about the fun design, this is Koran Beauty at is best, products that work amazing that also have a fun cute twist to them. They all had different designs such as geisha, giraffe etc. but this penguin suited what I wanted the most. I put it on and absolutely loved it, I ended up taking so many selfies although I have to say my boyfriend was not impressed I thought it was amazing. The design but adds something else but doesn’t make it any less of a good product.

WIN_20160723_192932

I picked up The Crème Shop Drink Up, Skin! Sheet Mask in TK Maxx, at £4.99 for 3 masks a great price in my opinion as sheet masks tend to be on the pricer side. Unfortunately, I could not find any of these on UK websites, but I recommend you keep your eyes peeled for this or any other Crème Shop Products.

Have you tried any of the Koren Beauty Products which are slowly making their way onto the UK market? Let me know what you’ve tried and what I should try next? Meanwhile I am going to enjoy being a penguin.

DIY Pamper Jar Inspiration

So today I thought I would do a quick post about a small gift I did for I did for one of my best friends from university. I’ve seen these jars all over the place and thought I would do it myself, this isn’t a DIY per say but this is what I filled it with and how I wrapped it all up.

DIY Pamper Jar - Kilner Jar

I was so long to find this pink Kilner jar on offer, and I built it all up around this jar. It’s a really great size and I knew she’d find a use for it in the future whether within her passion for baking or for general storage.

The next thing was to fill it up, wrapping each thing in cute stared tissue paper so everything that is in there will be a surprise. I started off with two Soap and Glory travel sized items, a body scrub and the old favorite righteous butter. A perfect pairing for travel or just to try. I then went for a load of little treats from a Foot Pack, Aussie hair mask and a selection of face masks. Finally to finish off the jar, I packed in 3 nail polishes two beautiful shades of purple and a glitter top coat. All small items that I knew she’d love and appreciate and I think that’s the joy of the pamper or treat jars that you can do whatever you want with them.

I found the cute star tissue paper in the card factory and this pink and white bag in the pound shop. I just feel like they really finish the whole gift off, it looked so cute and she loved the gift.

So have you ever made up one of these jars, what would you put in it and would you make this for a friend?

November Favourites

november faves

November has been a good month for me, starting the month off with a visit from my boyfriend, and signing a permanent contract at my work after a 3 month temporary contract, for a different job role. All in all a great month and I’ve being building up something exciting for December for you guys which you may of seen hints about it over on my twitter if you’ve had a keen eye but I’ve put a lot of work into it.

I decided to ‘Shop my Stash’ earlier this month in terms of eyeshadows making and effort to use products I haven’t used in a while although I do admit they are all similar colours. I broke out my Body Shop Shimmer Cubes for the first time in months and I love it, everything you need in one small palette whether you want a full smoky eye or something more subtle. I love to pair this with the P.S Love Liquid Eyeliner in Black, it’s taken forever for me to get into using liquid eyeliner as I used to be so bad at it opting for shadow and an angled brush which I still love it just gives it a very different look and feel. I’ve finally perfected a very thin line of liquid eyeliner which really helps frame the eyes but it’s still subtle. I picked up the Primark liquid eyeliner so it was cheap if I gave in but this is amazing truly black, easy to use and non-streaky I highly recommend picking it up.

nov faves ft maybelline & mus

As it’s fully into autumn and pretty much winter now, it gives me an excuse to break out the darker nail varnishes which I got at totally the wrong time of year to begin with and I can finally fully enjoy them. I’ve also being really loving the darker nail colours but I’ve being loving my Illamasqua Nail Polish in Viridian, it’s a beautiful dark green shade it kind of reminds me of a Christmas Tree with the shine and its beautiful for this time of year. In a complete contrast in budget and colour, I have been loving the MUA Nail Polish in Red Rose. It is such a vibrant and bright red, and considering the £1.00 price point it goes on fairly opaque and it feels kind of festive.

nove faves ft soap and glory and botanical choice

After a lapse in using face masks regularly in October and I’ve managed to get back into using my face mask and I have been using the Soap & Glory The Fab Pore Face Mask twice a week. I reviewed it back in August  and it really just clears out pores and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean I feel as though my skin is so much better for using it although I wish that I had taken before and after so I could see if it made a visible difference to my skin but I feel as though there is a visible improvement.

Sometimes it’s hard to get a good night’s sleep and as the days get shorter there is little to no daylight outside my work hours, which means some days I barely have natural light. You’re body gets tired and you just feel drained, and it seems harder to shut off at night as with electric lighting the lighting doesn’t change. So the bags have been growing my eyes and bags have got worse under my eyes. So to freshen up my eyes and reduce the bags I have been loving the Botanical Choice Dark Circle Reducer Sunflower Eye Patches, which are a bargain at £1.79 for 4 sets which is so cheap compared to similar products.

November Favourites face mask and dressing gown

Attractive i know 😉 😛

Totally random other favourite this month, with this grey kind of festive Dressing Gown from Primark, its super soft and fluffy, and was a really good price at only £10. I brought it in a size up so it’s huge, as well as going down to my knees so I’m fully covered, there is also two huge pockets so you can keep your phone or goodies in the pockets. I love this in the morning especially after I’ve had my shower to make a coffee to drink while I get ready. I even hang it over the corner of the radiator so it’s nice and toasty. Don’t you just love autumn?

So what have you being loving this November? Let me know in the comments what you have being loving over November and do you have any festive recommendations for the coming month?

Empties #8

Empties #8

Another empties for you again today, something that I feel as though I am always doing so I like to spread them out and they end up backing up. Saying that I am unsure if I would want to do a monthly empties as I feel as though it might be loads one month and nothing the next. My current method I feel as though works as I make the post when it feels worth it to do so, so let me know what you think monthly empties or when I have a significant amount of empties. This is a long once so brace yourself.


makeup empties

Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer in Light: This was a huge dud for me, not only was it was too dark but the texture was completely wrong for me, making my skin look dried out and barely blending. I was initially put off by the too dark colour but tried it anyway for review purposes, I was so disappointed I never got round to the review. I finally managed to finish it by using it as a eyeshadow primer as its still a better primer that the soap and glory eyeshadow primer and I hate wasting my money.

Would I repurchase this: bottom line, no. There are way better stick concealers out there or even doe foot concealers in the drug store for much less.

Soap and Glory It’s About Prime Eyeshadow Primer: This was another Soap and Glory dud and if you’ve gathered from above it was useless. It barely extended the life of my eyeshadow and worst of all it made primers that didn’t crease previously, crease when using this underneath. Also for the same price you can get a travel sized Urban Decay Primer Potion, and the urban decay travel sized contains more. So spend your money on the urban decay primer potion faultless and it costs the same. I don’t know if the other colour is better as I have the nude champagne colour but I’m not willing to try.

Would I repurchase this: another rather obvious no, opt for urban decay travel size as mentioned above same price for slightly more.

Off topic but am I the only one who Soap and Glory products don’t work for, I haven’t tried the brow products and the bronzer is alright. I think it is an occasion where it is a brand that doesn’t work for me but if it works for you go for it. Still there skin care and bath products are in general really good but I think I won’t bother with the makeup anymore.

Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer: I’m still not sure who recommended this one to me and it was you I’m so sorry, this is amazing. My favourite primer is still probably my bareMineral primer but this is way more affordable and will be one that I will continue to purchase. A thick cream primer that just sets up your skin nicely and meshs well with other Rimmel Foundations. Personally I find that Rimmel does some of the best foundations within the drug store, does anyone else find this?

Would I repurchase this: most definitely.

 

Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory: This is a great concealer and a good level of brightening as it is the wake me up formula, it is definitely more of under eye rather than a spot concealer due to the brightening properties but it’s a very good drug store concealer.

Would I repurchase this: yes I already have a second one.

Saiva Med Lip Care: I’ve had this for ages and its started to look a bit off so I’m getting rid of it. It has no scent but is great at treating and hydrating the lips and I’m trying to look out for another one, only problem is my mum picked it up in Lidli so I might have to get looking online.

Would I repurchase this: If I ever find it again yes, great for treating damaged lips.

 

P.S. Love Egg Shaped Makeup Sponge: This has done me since February/March time I think but it’s got passed its best and it just looks worse for wear every time I attempt to clean it. Although it is fairly firm I really love applying my make up with this it just blends everything so easily and helps me look flawless.

Would I repurchase this: I already have.


skincare empties

Lacura Facial Cleansing Wipes for Normal Skin: These I picked up from Aldi on a whim as I thought tesco had stopped doing their everyday wipes but magically they are back. These were alright as far as wipes go and they were relatively inexpensive although I cannot remember the exact price, less than £1.00 anyway. Generally really good and managed to move most of the makeup. Good for if you want to take makeup off before doing a proper routine later or just to clean up your face part way through the day if it’s a bit grimy.

Would I repurchase: probably, not in a rush to repurchase but I wouldn’t not get them again.

Superdrug Deep Action Anti-Blemish Gel: Most of my skin problems are hormonal, time of the month and all that, so I cannot prevent them and all I really have to do is make an effort to reduce them. This is where this came in handy, in order to reduce spots especially the big ones that seem to magically appear and you think you’d need a miracle to get rid of them. Sure they aren’t magically gone in 12 hours but when does that ever happen. It does however, significantly reduce the amount of time it’s there.

Would I repurchase: Yes, I already have but I always wait until superdrug has a regular offer such as 1/3-1/2 off own brand skincare.

 

Superdrug Deep Cleansing Facial Sheet Mask: I love sheet masks as they are so simple yet this was a bit of a miss for me, I love there refreshing sheet mask. This semi stung when it tingled and smelt like old talcum powder, yeah so basically not worth it.

Would I repurchase: No way!

 

The Body Shop Vitamin E Cream Cleanser and The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner (Travel Sizes/60ml): I am doing these as a pair as I’m only used these as a pair, I have mentioned them in previous posts and I really enjoy them. I am not sure how to describe the scent but it’s very subtle, and they go on so smooth and easily leaving your skin feeling amazing. Also they are highly effective at removing makeup

Would I repurchase: probably.

 

Simple Kind to Skin + Brightening Eye Makeup Remover Pads: I got these for travelling which you will be able to see in my travel toiletries post here. These are so-so they do a decent job at removing makeup but not perfect, I prefer the Halo eye makeup remover pads. They are good for travel and not a bad buy. Yet with the travel size make up removers and cleansers becoming more common I think I am less likely to buy these sorts of things while travelling.

Would I repurchase: unsure.


deoderant empties

It is somewhat worrying that I have enough deodorants to warrant to move them out of random and move them in to a section of them own. To be honest two of them are miniatures which makes it slightly better.

Sanex Dermo Pro Hydrate Anti-Perspirant Deodorant: I think this was in my last empties too as I brought them on a multi-buy offer, I am not loyal to any one deodorant I just tend to buy what’s on offer. Yeah its alright and does its job there isn’t much to say.

Would I repurchase: yeah why not.

 

Dove Go Fresh Anti-Perspirant in Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena (Travel Size): Although these travel sized ones aren’t value for money, I find them so irresistible and cute I cannot help buying them. Also in the summer months it’s sometimes nice to keep one in your bag because you know sweat. This is my all-time favourite deodorant scents and I regularly buy the full size version of this.

Would I repurchase: Yes!

 

Sure Women Long Lasting Protection in Bright (Travel Size): I never normally get sure products but I wanted another miniature and this seemed like the best option. I actually thoroughly enjoyed it and might look to try more sure deodorants in future:

Would I repurchase: Probably.


random empties

Colgate FluriGard Daily Rinse: I love this mouth wash, it really freshens your breath and cleans your mouth. I know most of the time all mouth washes do the same thing and this is on the pricier side of mouth wash but I couldn’t imagine using anything else. It was first recommended to me by my orthodontist when I got my braces when I was 10/11, so yeah I’ve been using this for a good 10 years now I’m not going back now.

Would I repurchase: Definitely.

 

Nailene Ultra Quick Nail Glue: I tend to buy primark nails as they are so pretty and tend to be well made, especially for £1-£2.00 per set but the glue is a bit so-so. Therefore I buy this amazing nailene glue, it really does the job and takes ages to dry up so I can take ages between wearing false nails. Highly recommend it for whatever nails you buy and buying this for one set of Primark nails is cheaper than buying an elegant touch set and they look just as good.

Would I repurchase: Definitely.

Quite a healthy mix of empties this time. Have you tried any of these products and if so what did you think of them.

Morrison’s Sensitive Aloe Vera Shave Gel: I’ve gone through a number of these now and I know it has appeared in a few empties, it is a brilliant inexpensive shave gel and leaves my legs soft and smooth. This is a staple in my bathroom cabinet.

Would I repurchase: I always do.

 

Gillette Satin Care Pure & Delicate Shave Gel: I actually liked having the smaller size for ease of travel, meaning I could keep having soft legs while away as I feel like shave gel makes such a different. I will definitely look a pick up the smaller sizes if I’m going away again it is definitely worth it.

Would I repurchase: yes.

 

Cussons Carex Complete Strawberry Laces Refreshing Hand Gel: I think I have mentioned it before that I don’t like alcohol smelling gels. This didn’t smell like strawberry laces but it had that synthetic strawberry scent and I really enjoyed it, other than the smell it’s a hand gel and does its job a definate must in my bags.

Would I repurchase: yes but I’m not fused by what my hand gel I have as long as I have one.

Argan Oil Deep Moisturising Foot Pack: I love foot packs but this one left my feet feeling super odd, I think I’ll go back to the peppermint or tea tree foot packs from now on.

Would I repurchase: no.


Phew! That’s everything and it can now all go into my recycling, well everything that is recyclable of courses. Have you tried any of these and what did you think of them.
