Beauty Rehab

Hi there!

I’m back with another instalment of my quest for space and freedom. My stash has got to the point where I am overwhelmed and although I’m clearly addicted and have cut my spending down dramatically, I still have drawers, cupboards and suitcases full of products. It’s quite frankly ridiculous and I’ve cleared out crappy stuff that I’ve hoarded for no reason, got rid of doubles to family members and powered my way through tonnes of amazing products (which you can see following this link).

It’s still an overwhelming amount of stuff but it has been cut down from its original size, here’s my latest load of empties for you to browse!


Aussie 3 Min Miracle – 100% love this product, continuously repurchasing!
Scrub of Your Life – Another good one from S&G, would repurchase on a 3 for 2 deal
Burt’s Bees Buttermilk Lotion – Weird smell, nice and moisturising but wouldn’t repurchase
Origins Modern Friction – So much love for this stuff! Expensive but lasts a long time and works wonders


Murad Refreshing Cleanser – Lovely cleanser but didn’t always cleanse all my make up off
Origins Make a Difference Serum – Lovely but just doesn’t last long enough for me
Vichy Normaderm Promat – Mattifying but seems to have disappeared off shelves?
Clarins Bath and Shower Concentrate – Not a fan of the smell but was very concentrate so lasted well, wouldn’t repurchase though
Una Brennan Rose Miracle Facial Oil – Nice product, removes make up well but needs a few pumps of oil to remove everything and is too expensive for such a small bottle for me personally.


Clarins HydraQuench Cream – Super thick and hydrating, but £35 for 50ml might be too much for me at the moment
Philosophy Snow Angel – Lovely smell but it was just a gift, wouldn’t repurchase
Redken Color Extend – this was a sample and not big enough really to know long term colour protection effects, but was light and I barely noticed it on my hair so wasn’t crispy or sticky
Sally Hansen InstaDri Top Coat – This is a pretty good topcoat, I’d consider repurchasing when my Essie one has run out


Origins Checks and Balances Cleanser – This is my 3rd tube and I’ve bought a 4th! Enough said.
GHD Heat Protector – Not sure if these truly work but any protection is better than none! Have repurchased a cheaper one
Ted Baker Body Lotion – This was so thick it was hard to get out the tube and hard to absorb too, wouldn’t repurchase
Alpha H Liquid Gold – This definitely works and I’m a bit gutted to have finished it, would repurchase if I can find a deal!


No7 Face Wipes – Always buy these with the vouchers when they come around. I know face wipes aren’t ideal but after a drunken night out its exactly what’s necessary and for those times when you need to remove a few layers of product before washing your face properly.
Duac – Technically not a product you can buy as it’s only on prescription but if any of you have skin problems I would 100% recommend you ask your doctor to try this. It’s not a long term solution as it can thin your skin but it has permanently cured my acne.
Crabtree and Evelyn Hand Therapy – This is a lovely hand cream I would recommend for anyone with dry hands that need a little more than the average hand cream

Have you tried any of these products? Would you repurchase or give them a miss?

    I love your beauty rehab posts! I always find it so satisfying to save up all my empties and see how much I've got through. I love the Sally Hansen top coat but find that it goes gloopy within a month or two, so I never get round to finishing it. xLola and Behold
