Beauty Rehab

Good morning!

Another Beauty rehab update for you today. I’ve been ploughing through my stash and moving it around a lot to try and make space and encourage me to use more. It’s a long and slow process but I’ve got into a sort of routine now and clearing things out regularly is a must do as there are always things you can give away and make more space,which is something I could definitely do with!


Origins Ginzing Eye Cream: Loved this and the pinky tone which is lovely, sad to finish it but have a sample one to use.
China Glaze Pool Party: One of my faves which was unfortunately not closed after its last use…its hard as a rock! Gutted, will repurchase in future.
Origins Drink Up Intensive mask: Love this, still have sample sizes from Christmas sets to keep me going.


Bourjois Happy Light Matte Primer: This wasn’t bad but for the price and size totally not worth it. I’d easily use one in a few small weeks and i find Revlon to be better
Vichy Dermablend: Super fave foundation, already repurchased 100% recommend.
MAC Studio Fix Fluid: Love this though I hate the smell, good coverage and thick enough to cover serious blemishes.
Benefit Hello Flawless: I can’t make up my mind on this one, I love the brightening dewy effect it gives but it doesn’t last long enough for me whatever primer i use.


NSpa Hot Cloth Polish: This was a great alternative to Liz Earle’s original one and I’d definitely purchase this as it is very similar for a much smaller price.
Liz Earle Skin Tonic: This surprised me how much I liked the routine and the smell of the toner but to be honest I don’t feel like it did a lot for me, but I’m not a toner lover anyway,
St Tropez Bronzing Mousse: Love this, hate the price but you get what you pay for! Love the colour and it lasts, already repurchased.


Batiste Dry Shampoo: Love this, have a stock ALWAYS
Ojon Revitalizing Mist: Helps to condition hair and detangle it but I don’t think its worth the price tag, there are cheaper alternatives in my opinion.
S&G Clean On Me: Absolute mammoth size shower gel, gorgeous smell and lasts a lifetime. I always feel like its an accomplishment to finish it! And I always seem to have another in the sidelines…


Collection Illuminating Concealer: Wasn’t a huge fan, much prefer the Lasting Perfection one as its a lot thicker and I prefer the wand.
S&G Thick and Fast Mascara: Massive brush that reaches every lash, good for the price and even better when you get it in the Christmas set every year!
Revlon PhotoReady concealer: Loved how easy this was to apply, just draw onto your face! Blends easily and covers everything.


Powders are a it of a thing for me obviously!

Bourjois Mineral Powder: Contains a sponge for portable travel but i wasn’t a fan and the smell was a little off putting (very powdery and old woman like!)
Rimmel Match Perfection Loose Powder: Loved this, first time I’ve used a loose powder and I’d definitely repurchase.
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder: Didn’t finish this as it became coated after use and to be honest it wasn’t good enough for me to try and scrape the top off and try again.

So there you have, this was what I managed to use up and get rid of this month.

What have you been using up? Do you agree with my views on some of these products?

    Wow this is one mammoth empties post. I'm glad you mentioned that you think nspa's hot cloth polish is similar to Liz Earle's, I have the nspa version but I keep seeing all these posts about Liz Earle so now I can slap my hand and remind myself the cheaper version is just as good. How long did it take you to get through Clean On Me? I've had a bottle of that for months and I don't even think I'm a quarter of the way through it! Rosie x

    Wow, you've done good! I'm moving house in a few weeks and there is so much I want to get rid of, but I can't see how I will ever get through it all! How do you manage it?!
