Beauty Rehab

Hello there!

Before moving house I worked my butt off to work my way through any last products that I could get through before packing up. I think I did pretty well but my stash still seemed to overwhelm every other type of stuff I had! Ah well – it was always going to be a large part of my life wasn’t it?!


Dove Summer Glow Lotion – This is always my favourite tanning moisturiser, doesn’t smell half as bad as some of the others I’ve tried and is a good colour
Garnier Micellar Water – This was great, I would definitely repurchase as it was a good price too. Took off my mascara easily and didn’t leave an oily residue
Label M Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner – this worked great for thickening hair but it did feel dry afterwards, great for a Saturday night but not regular use


Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish – Still like this, it melts onto skin and removes make up. It’s quite expensive though so will be holding off for a bit
Nip and Fab Glycolic Serum – I really liked this but it took me four different bottles to get one that worked….and a small bottle at that. Maybe I’d repurchase on a deal
Nip and Fab Dragon’s Blood Serum – Loved this, this was my second bottle and I’d repurchase again, sinks in great and is a full 50ml
Origins Checks and Balances – Always my fave face wash, need to use my one sparingly until I can buy another!
Nip and Fab Glycolic Face Pads – Expensive for what it is but I do think these helped clear my skin. Possibly I would repurchase on a 3 for 2 deal 

Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo  and 3 Minute Miracle – always my favourite hair products as they are so cheap but work so well with my hair
Nip and Fab Energy Boost Body Wash – wouldn’t repurchase, average shower gel for an inflated price
Garnier Ambre Solaire Tanning Mist – Another favourite, the best tanning mist for face and hands for me, so easy to use

Herbal Essences Dry Shampoo – awful dry shampoo, acted more like hair spray, amazing scent though so I was disappointed with this


Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation – love this, need to repurchase asap!
Lush Yummy Mummy Shower Gel – great smell, lovely product, would repurchase
Good Things Deep Pore Anti Blemish Lotion – Great product for bad skin days and useful as a double cleanse, I’d repurchase when I break out next
Smashbox Photo Finish Blemish Control Primer – can’t comment on the blemish factor of this but the primer was great, and NEVER gave me the rolling bits that others do, big fan of the texture of this


Stay Matte Pressed Powder – Best powder for the best price, have 2 as back up!
Algenist Eye Renewal Balm – this was pretty good even for my sensitive eyes, loved the balm texture
Origins Ginzing Moisturiser – loved this, never been disappointed with a Origins product, need to repurchase!
Mac Mascara – this was average, I’d prefer Rimmel for a much cheaper price


Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara – possibly the most disappointing mascara from Rimmel but it’s possible that it was due to it drying out and going clumpy
Eve Lom Eye Cream – very thick and luxurious, not in my price range unfortunately!
Kiehls Rosa Arctica Lightweight Cream – this was lovely and indeed lightweight, I’d consider buying
Lush Full of Grace Serum – love this and my skin feels so much more hydrated

No7 Eye Make Up Remover – Great when getting the No7 vouchers, very useful product
Una Brennan Superfacialist Oil – really liked this to remove the first layer of make up in a double cleanse, it all seemed to melt off
Garnier Ambre solaire Tanning Mist – see picture above
Dr Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Eye Serum – really like this product and it sinks in lovely, Dr Organic are a great brand
Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate – a great oil, I’d love to try this out full size as the tester only allowed 3 nights worth. I think it would be worth the money

Nip and Fab Dragon’s Blood Cleansing Pads – not sure about these, I did like the extra hydration but not sure if they were worth the money
Good Things Manuka Honey Cleanser – another great product from Good Things, they are definitely my go to high street brand and I will be back for more
Batiste Brunette Dry Shampoo – super impressed with this product, SAVES MY LIFE during the week. Batiste is the best!
Toni and Guy Glamour Hairspray – perfect handbag sized spray and works great to hold hair in place

What do you think of my empties this time? I worked so hard! The last few images are taken on my desk on moving day so apologies for the poor quality, everything was so last minute

Have you been using up products recently? What have been your favourites?

    Wow loooooads of empties! I've only tried one mascara by MAC and was really disappointed, it put me off trying any of their others. When I've run out of my current eye cream, I'm going to give the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery for eyes a go! The one facial one sounds amazing too xxRamblings of a Beauty Bird | Beauty Blog
