Beauty Rehab

Hi all!

I’ve got another installment to the Beauty Rehab series I’ve been writing for the last two years now. I can’t believe it’s that long!
It was my aim to have downsized my stash by now and i never thought I’d still be writing them as I assumed I would have worked my way through the majority by now. I obviously need to up my game and get a move on using stuff up. I haven’t actually bought many products for a long time, but i do think Christmas/Birthday sets contribute greatly and also I do seem to acquire products that some people no longer want so that doesn’t help!

I’m hoping to move out as soon as I’ve got myself back on my feet financially which is probably at least a year away, I’m giving myself the rather large target of getting rid of as much as possible….i.e. almost all of it by Christmas. I need to get a move on!


La Roche Posay – Toleriane cleanser is a gel cleanser and I absolutely loved it. So easy to use when you come home from a night out and want more than a face wipe but cant be bothered with a muslin cloth. It’s ideal and I’d repurchase.

Label M – Honey and Oat conditioner. This goes with the shampoo i finished in a previous post; probably the first time I’ve finished a shampoo before it’s conditioner! This smelt warm and comforting and did a god job of being a daily conditioner.

No7 Protect and Perfect Body Serum – This was donated to me and I did enjoy using it until the top starting to come apart and it started to dry out so I can’t really give this a review as it was still full! Pooooooooor packaging.

Origins Zero Oil Toner – Surprisingly loved this, really good at absorbing oil for the day and although I’m not a toner fan I would consider buying this again to keep my oil at bay.


Antipodes Divine Oil – already repurchased as 3 days without it made me cry. So much love for this oil!

Lacura Aqua Complete Serum – Enjoyed this especially for the bargain of £3.50. Would repurchase.

Murad Pore and Line Minimising Hydrator – This was really nice and was so light it felt like a serum, can’t say that I’d repurchase though for the £49.50 price tag as I just cannot afford that on a regular basis!

Skin Revivals Facial Cleansing Oil – this took a bit of getting into as I’d never used an oil cleanser before, but it was GREAT at removing eye make up especially mascara so I persevered and used this every day to remove it before cleansing with my normal one. Wouldn’t repurchase at this time.


Benefit They’re Real mini mascara – LOVE. I save my minis like a kid saves sweets.

Dr Organic Manuka Honey Lip Balm – so battered you can barely read it, the sign of a well used product! Would definitely repurchase!

Rimmel’s Scandaleyes – I liked this initially but i think other Rimmel mascaras work better on my lashes, sometimes this clumped together for me.

Collection Lasting Perfection Powder – I know there’s some left in this….it’s done that funny thing where its got a coating on it from usage and I just can’t be bothered to try and salvage it. I personally prefer Stay Matte to this.

Origins Starting Over moisturiser sample – Enjoyed using this in the nights but not sure my skin needs this much just yet…save it for when I’m older!

Origins Andrew Weil Mega Bright serum –  I’ve never met a serum from Origins that i haven’t liked and this was no exception. If only it was cheaper I’d snap it up regularly!

Revlon Nearly Naked – Took me a while to get into this, think it was probably because my skin wasn’t good enough at the time but I soon loved it. I would repurchase in future after I’ve worked my way through some of the others in my stash

Eysilix eye cream – This was a funny one. Didn’t love it and i wouldn’t repurchase because my eyes seem to be sensitive to it on random occasions, but it did hydrate my eye area and my under eye bags did lessen somewhat.

So that’s what I’ve been using up recently, are any of these your favourites? Have you loved or loathed any of them? Are you working your way through your own stash?

I need some serious focus over the next few months!
