So I lost my blogging mojo in the early few months of this year and now my laptops broken! But, with my trustee work laptop I'm back in the blogging swing of things now. So here are my empties from January and February - and there are a lot of them!
Skin Care and Makeup
I used up:
Lancome Teinte Miracle - love this stuff, have bought some more
No 7 Protect and Perfect Serum - a staple
Savlon Cream - I've always got this in my beauty kit
Dermologica Multi Vitamen Power Recovery Masque - Hmmm, got this in a Glossy Box, wouldn't shell out for it.
Origins Starting Over - my favourite winter moisturiser - will repurchase next winter
Lancome Genefique Night Cream - a bit too heavy for me, didn't use it everyday and wouldn't buy it.
Clarins Multi-Active Skin Recovery Serum - I really liked this, although similarly to No 7, it doesn't go very far. I got this in a gift set in the sales and would repurchase if on offer
Bio Effect EGF Serum - this was from a Glossy Box - A bit too heavy, although it didn't break me out, I wouldn't repurchase
Barbara Daily Face Lift in a Jar - I wasn't impressed with this, despite hearing lots of good things. I wasn't sure if it was a moisturiser, primer or highlighter. It didn't really do a good job at any of those things, so I wouldn't buy again.
Doozle Serum - I bought this after seeing Doozle at a craft fair last year. I really liked it and it wasn't expensive. A good winter serum.
Lancome Gentle Softening Cleansing Milk - I got this free on a Lancome offer - I was really pleased to have a full-sized freebie! It was a godsend for my skin in the colder weather, very kind and not at all drying. It also worked as an eye makeup remover for not too heavy looks. I'd buy this in the future.
I got through:
Neal and Wolf Harmony Intensive Hair Treatment - I got this in a Glossy Box - I liked it, but I probably wouldn't repurchase. It's nowhere near as good as the Bumble and Bumble treatment I bought last year
L'Oreal Elvive Shampoo - a staple
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner - another staple
Batiste Original Dry Shampoo - the "infamous" Glossy Box sample! I'm not a fan of Batiste, I've reverted to using talc for getting an extra day without washing my hair.
James Brown Photo Fabulous Moisturising Conditioner - it OK, I've reviewed it before, probably wouldn't repurchase.
James Brown High Gloss Treatment (not shown all of it) - I preferred this to the Photo Fabulous collection. I got this and the two products beneath as well as some serum for £10 in the sales - bargain!
James Brown High Gloss Shampoo - quite liked this, didn't blow me away, but wouldn't turn my nose up at it.
James Brown High Gloss Conditioner - again, this was quite good, I'd repurchase, but it wouldn't be my first choice.
Shower Gel and Eye Makeup Remover
OK a random grouping here! I used up:
Radox Eastern Spirit Shower Therapy - I got this for Christmas, it smells nice, using it up helps reduce my shower gel stash, but I wouldn't repurchase.
Spa Invigorating Body Wash - another from my stash, not purchased by me. It smells lovely, but I wouldn't rush out to buy it again!
Simple Kind to Eyes Eye Make-Up Remover - Not impressed with this at all. Didn't tackle even light eye makeup very well, the consistency was really waterry and I had to rub at my eyes really hard to remove makeup. Would steer well clear in the future.
Coca-Cola Lip Smacker - loved this, tastes just like Coke! I've got a cherry coke one as well I'm currently using.
Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 - don't believe the hype - this stuff isn't great, but at about £10 it should blooming well be! It's too thick, I didn't like the applicator which got all gummed up with lip balm and it didn't taste that good. Not worth the money and would really put me off repurchasing!
Dermalogica Renewal Lip Complex - another Glossy Box sample. It was OK, I quite liked the consistency and it was really moisturising. However, the taste wasn't to my taste, so I wouldn't seek it out!
Oh dear, I've been bad - only one body lotion used up in 2 months. And I was doing so well before Christmas! Time to get into the body-lotion-using-up swing of things again. Anyway, this Nivea Happy Time Body Lotion was very good. I'd be more than happy to receive this again - it performed as well as many more expensive lotions. I wouldn't repurchase as I seriously don't need any more body lotions - I must trim that stash.
So I'll probably be posting next week on my March empties - how time flies!
Thanks for reading! xx
