Beauty Rehab

I haven’t written one of these posts in a while and had quite a collection of products building up!

Firstly I had a lot of minis to get through so decided to kick start my using my back log of products I’d try and use some of these:

The Aveda Damage Remedy products I previously blogged about here.

I absolutely loved them and would buy in a heartbeat if I could afford it!

The Dead Sea shampoo was pretty average really, I had it from a recent hotel visit that I took to keep in my gym bag. Probably wouldn’t buy this.

I think as a beauty obsessive taking vitamins is pretty important though I prefer to get mine through food (yum!). These were alright though I personally can’t be bothered taking them any more, do you bother with vitamins?

Not really a beauty product but i was interested how many people took them!

I’ve had this foot spray for yonks from my mum, had a really nice smell and was quite refreshing on the feet but wasn’t something I used very much.

Neither was the Scholl foot spray, I decided to try and use them up so they weren’t wasted but I don’t really like feet so pretend they’re not there 😉

The Vichy Normaderm (also featuring in the photo below, bad photo skills!) was absolutely amazing, I’d definitely buy this again if I didn’t have lots of others to use. Loved the effects and not too pricey either!

Ted Baker Body Scrub….I wasn’t a fan of this as I dislike the oily effect some scrubs leave and this was one of them. A good scrub but hated the oiliness! Wouldn’t buy again.

Good old Sun Swim and Gym shampoo for coloured hair! I was worried my hair would be affected by the chlorine in the pool but this put my mind at rest and helped keep the colour looking good.

Beloved Liz Earle! Have bought myself more of this and will continue to buy more as it’s working well for me and probably most other beauty bloggers have all raved too!

Soap and Glory Righteous Butter – not much needs to be said about this as it smells amazing, everyone always compliments me on the smell and it works a charm! Just not good when you’re putting skinny jeans on afterwards!

St Tropez Spray Tan – love this also but its such a shame that it doesn’t last barely any time, probably 2 full body applications in a can and there are others out there with much more value for money.

Love the product, not the price!

I ended up throwing these 2 out…I bought them both when they were new out and haven’t ever used them much.

Have been trying to use them up by wearing them to the gym as they’re lighter and I still need to wear something to cover my skin (I know it’s bad!) but basically i couldn’t be bothered with them anymore.

The tinted moisturiser is too dark for my skin and seems to clump on my face.

The mineral foundation was chalky and separated on my face also, basically they’re both horrible products that I’m disappointed I bought.

No7 usually have a lot more promising products than this!

Also another product I have barely used, Dr Nick Lowe Purifying foaming cleanser.

This is barely used and if anyone wants it they are more than welcome to it???

Its £12 I think, but I just cant get on with it anymore seeing as my skin has decided to react to almost every thing!

Let me know if you’d like to try it 🙂

Think I need to up my game in the ‘use up product’ stakes, It’s coming up to Christmas soon and I expect a whole load more products will find their way into my life!

Far too exciting, Christmas is my favourite time of year!

Have you used any of these products? What did you think?

    hey, I should take vitamins but have a brain like a sieve and forget! I'd love to know a bit more about the sun swim and gym shampoo if you wouldn't mind? xx
