Beauty Rehab

Hello there!

I’m back with another beauty rehab post today, I’ve been churning my way through my stash and although there is seemingly no avail to the end of my products I am somewhat working my way through as I haven’t bought any more products so it must be decreasing right???

I have to say that i really enjoy writing these posts, it’s a great way to show progress through your stash, revisit products you may have forgotten about and remember if you wanted to repurchase them or not.

I also think it’s great to have a nosy at what other people have been using up too!


Simple Soothing Shower Gel – this was bought for me at Christmas and it took me a while to get round to it but it’s a lovely ‘simple’ product. I’d repurchase if I ever run out of shower gel!

Aussie 3 Min Miracle Conditioner Luscious Long Hair – I don’t think the variations in the 3 Min Miracle range make any difference but the different conditioner types do vary in smell and consistency so I think it’s just a matter of working out which one you prefer. I will always repurchase these especially as they’re always on offer somewhere!

Vita Liberata Tinted Self Tan Gel – Love this, worth every penny though I try to buy during the 1/3 off promotions (£15 then!) really lovely even tan in a believable colour. Already repurchased!

Batiste – I do not need to say anything about this product! Already have 3 more cans in the sidelines!


Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream – Love how thick this product is and was a lovely surprise how good the skincare range from Benefit was. I have a mini of this to keep me going for now!

Origins Ginzing Face Cream – WONDERFUL smell and amazing results, just cannot go wrong with Origins for my skin, it drinks it up! Will repurchase when I’ve worked through some more.

Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer – love this product and is my favourite primer for the price. Will surely repurchase though there are a few i want to try in the mean time


Clarins HydraQuench Cream Mask – given to me and I loved it, wouldn’t repurchase as I’m an Origins lover and have lots of Drink Up mask to use but it is a lovely product that has made me want to try a lot more from Clarins in the future.

Barefoot Orgasmic Body Lotion – this was really nice but seems to have gone a funny smell! Wouldn’t repurchase.

Balance Me Cleans and Smooth Face Balm – this came in a beauty box so it was great to try it out. I’ve always enjoyed every Balance Me products that I’ve tried and am definitely interested in trying out more in future.

St Tropez Tan Optimiser – love this really fine scrub but I don’t think the price is reflected in the effects from the product and I’d personally prefer a Soap and Glory one for a better smell!


Garnier Ambre Solaire spray tan – Great tan that’s super easy to use, dries quickly and doesn’t produce an orange or streaky colour. Always my back up tan!

S&G Greatest Scrub of All – lovely small grained face scrub that would be a great alternative to more expensive scrubs especially when they’re in the 3 for 2 deal. You cannot lose with Soap and Glory!

L’Oreal Micellar Water – a lot of these micellar waters are very similar but I did like this one and I would repurchase.

S&G Peaches and Clean Face Wash – used to love this and still do like it but I’m not sure that my skin still does as it did break out a little towards the end of the bottle. I will be sticking to my Origins one for now.


Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Sugar Scrub – I don’t think an expensive scrub is worth the pennies and any kind of scrub is fine by me! This one had the typical cocoa butter smell but it wasn’t too overpowering. Wouldn’t repurchase as I’d prefer a different scent.

Macadamia Deep Repair Masque – there is NOTHING better than this hair mask and I really need to save up for the pot and save my hair from its dry and nasty existence it’s currently living! NEED.

Coral blush – if I could find where this blush came from I’d be over the moon, it’s a perfect dupe for Coralista (my all time fave) but unfortunately it’s so old I have no idea where it came from!

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder – always the best, always repurchased.


Skin Life Serum – another beauty box product, very nice thin moisturiser that my skin constantly drank up. Was lovely but i believe it was expensive!

Rimmel Scandaleyes Flex Mascara – I always think Rimmel mascaras are great value for money but this one unfortunately seemed to go very thick very quickly and my lashes looked quite clumpy so I wouldn’t repurchase this one.

Benefit They’re Real mascara – love this mascara as the brush is really good at getting every lash. I was lucky enough to win some minis in various make up events so have a few to keep me going but I’m not sure if I’d spend over £20 on it as I’m a germ phobe and throw my mascaras out after a max of 3 months! So I can’t really justify it at the moment.

Bioderma SPF 50 sample – Bioderma are one of the best at what they do and having tried this product I can’t disagree. Easily absorbed and hasn’t irritated my skin at all. Would repurchase if i was going abroad.

So what do you think of the products I’ve used? Are any of them your favourites?

Hopefully I can work my way through even more next time. I’ve just had a super clear out in my room of books, uni work and other crap that I’ve accumulated. It would be great to have some additional space in my room rather than fighting for it all the time!

Are you any good at keeping control of what you’re using?
