I’ve been a busy bee over the past few weeks and have been saving up my empties for you as normal.
I’ve been a little bit pathetic at the non spending part of Beauty Rehab the last few weeks….Christmas sets and random trips have left me wanting and purchasing a lot, my poor credit card. That has had to stop pretty quickly though as I owe my parents a fair bit of money, so I’m back on the wagon….so to speak!
Without further ado here’s what I’ve managed to use up this time:
Aussie 3 min miracle conditioner: Forever love this, my hair loves it, the smell is amazing, always a thumbs up.
Nioxin Shampoo: Can’t say I was a fan, felt cooling which I didn’t love and I think it stripped colour from my hair…booooooooo hisssss
No7 Eye make up remover: Love, have 2 ready waiting in the wings!
Batiste: As above, bought them on a deal, love it!
Avon Intensive Body Lotion: These are great value and really work, would buy again.
S&G Easy Glistening: I believe this has been repackaged, quite good…sometimes a little too glittery but the almond oil in it gave a great sheen.
Liz Earle Skin Tonic: Have the full size which I’m currently using, not decided if there’ any benefits but it feels lovely and smells great.
Ralph Lauren 4 Lotion: Came with the perfume, sank in easily and not a strong smell, wouldn’t repurchase on it’s own though
Neutrogena Acne Wash: This one was bought by mistake by my American friend for me, it was nice but not what I was looking for.
S&G Hand Food: Love the smell and its a pretty good hand cream, glad to have finally finished one though as I have tonnes of it!
Origins Checks and Balances Cleanser: Love this, love the smell, cleanses my skin and I’ve bought another.
St Tropez Body Polish: Quite like this, its buffs but doesn’t leave a residue but not sure its worth the extra price tag over others which do the same.
Origins Make a Difference toner: Looooooooooove this. The smell is out of this world and didn’t dry my skin at all. I’m not a fan of toner but even I am considering repurchasing!
Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel: Can’t decide on this one. Removes make up but turns into a ‘milk’ so gets everywhere and in my eyes.
BioEffect EGF Serum: This was a sample but a lovely one, worth a LOT of money….15ml is £125…..RIDICULOUS if you ask me. Obviously it was nice though….absorbed very fast and very hydrating.
Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream: This was from a friend, lovely consistency and great for my dehydrated skin
Vichy Normaderm Moisturiser: Loved this when I had oilier skin, it’s still pretty good now especially for day. Not sure I’d repurchase as my skin has changed.
Essie Top Coat: Loved this, topped it up with a cheap polish to use the last bit but obviously wasn’t the same…have another!
Almay Colour Correction Primer: Can’t get any more out of the tube for some reason, was very hydrating for a primer but didn’t feel like it did much
Molton Brown Shower Gel: Always love their smells, this was a great tester and very zesty
Max Factor Foundation: Nice and thick, great coverage but started to separate….I have had it a few years though!
YSL Nail Polish: Lovely colour, very sheer. Brush doesn’t quite reach the bottom though
Origins Zero Oil: Bought when i had oily skin, have used it in the mornings to use it up and it’s still really good at absorbing oil
HD Brows Powder: Great powder and I loved the design of the compact
Aesop Parsley Seed Serum: Love this, would snap it up again if I could afford it! Hydrating without overloading my skin, but at £45 for 100ml I cannot afford to repurchase
Origins Make A Difference Rejuvenating Gel: Will be repurchasing, favourite smell of the whole Origins range and has the best effects.
Elemis Shower Cream: Couldn’t see the fuss with this shower gel, it’s just a shower gel…very nice smell but not worth the extra pennies as i needed a lot for a lather too.
Bioderma Micellar Solution: Loved these, will have to get some to compliment my eye make up remover as sometimes you just need a bit more!
Bioderma Samples: Won from twitter. There were a whole load of them and maddeningly I loved every single one! I will just HAVE to try out some full size versions of them too!
Sudocrem: Great for those days when my skin is overloaded with oil and whiteheads, dries them right up if a little bit harshly. Not for regular use!
Lush Daddy-O Shampoo: This was purple and scared me and my highlights…but it was amazing! Stopped them from changing to a weird colour which is what was happening at the time. I no longer have them but would get this if I did
Rimmel Max Curves mascara: Love Rimmel mascaras, this one is good for the price as always but it wasn’t my favourite of their range
L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes: Loved this which was a surprise. I’m lucky with my lashes and don’t find expensive mascaras are that great but this was a happy medium when on offer as it was a little more but with better results.
So that’s what I’ve been using!
How has your stash going? Is it growing or shrinking?
I’m trying my best but it just doesn’t really seem to be going anywhere!
