Elizavecca Milky Piggy Hell-Pore Cleanup AHA Fruit Toner

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Elizavecca Milky Piggy Hell-Pore Cleanup AHA Fruit Toner. As you can tell by its name, this product promises to give skin the ultimate deep cleanse. I’ve been using this product for a few weeks now, and here’s what I think.

I’m using this toner right after I come out of the shower in the morning. I use it 3 days on, 1 day off. Why this? Because it’s insanely powerful. This toner sucks the grease and grime right out of my pores – and I’m not kidding! It’s also the best skin brightening product I’ve ever used. It’s absolute madness – in the best possible way!

I also love the packaging of the product. The bacteria look cute, but they also look like they know that their days are numbered. So, I’d say the packaging reflects the power of the product it houses!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this product to everyone. Just be careful – this is powerful stuff, and please check the ingredients to make sure there’s nothing you’re allergic to.

I paid £9.99 (TK Maxx) for this Elizavecca Milky Piggy Hell-Pore Cleanup AHA Fruit Toner.

Revisiting Old Favourites – L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about a hair care combo which I’ve previously used and reviewed – L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner. However, I haven’t used these hair care products in years, so I thought now’s a good time to revisit them.

L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner promise to reinforce hair fibre, to nourish hair from root to tip, and to make hair feel stronger. These products are aimed at people with fragile hair.

I’m satisfied that the shampoo cleanses my hair and scalp properly but also gently. And the conditioner detangles my hair well. I do think that this shampoo and conditioner make my hair feel stronger. And I’ve noticed that I lose a little less hair in the shower when I use these products. I’m still a big fan!

Keep in mind, these products wont’t help with medical issues that cause or result in hair loss. In such cases, it’s always best to seek medical help – please speak with your GP. 💖

L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner have recently been renamed from Triple Resist to Full Resist. Regardless of this, these products are available as 250ml for about £3, and 400ml for £5. I bought the big 400ml bottles on a half price offer.

Boots No. 7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots No. 7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil which I’ve been using since June.

This facial oil with jojoba oil and retinyl palmitate is one of the core pieces of the No. 7 skin care collection.

It promises to give dry skin the boot and to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. The product page on Boots’ website says “turn back the clock” and “say bye-bye to dry and dehydrated skin…” Well, OK then!

When I started to use this facial oil, I didn’t believe that it would live up to its promises. I didn’t like it for the first few days, and I didn’t think it was rich enough. However, I kept using it, and after about 10 days, I found that it that killed off the 2 eczema patches which I’ve had for a few months now.

I’ve tried other products, and some did help with the eczema. But this facial oil has really gone the extra mile for my skin. I’m glad I continued to use it even though I was sceptical at first.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this facial oil. It’s a non-greasy formula, so you might be thinking it’s not rich enough for dry skin. But it actually is rich and deeply hyrating. I will buy it again, no doubt!

Boots No. 7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil is available as 30ml for £23. Smaller 15ml bottles are usually available as part of seasonal gift sets.

Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Oil Gel

Vaseline Cocoa Oil GelHi there! Today’s post is about this Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Oil Gel.

This body gel promises to nourish skin and to leave skin with a healthy looking glow.

I’ve been using this product for 2 weeks now. Whilst I think that this isn’t the most suitable moisturiser for this time of year, I’m still very happy with it.

I’ve tried this oil gel on dry and on damp skin. I prefer to use it on dry skin – but it works well either way.

The cocoa fragrance is simply amazing. It smells like… paradise! Wow!

I also agree that this oil gel makes my skin glow – so what’s not to love?

Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Oil Gel is available as 200ml for about £5.79. I paid £2.59 (better than half price offer).

Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about Vaseline’s Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion.

I’ve been using this body lotion for a few weeks now (it’s near empty), and I just love it!

The lotion is easy to spread, and it’s absorbed in no time. I love the non-greasy formula. It’s perfect for warmer days when you don’t want to use a heavy body butter.

I’ve previously only used Vaseline’s cocoa body lotion, and I actually regret not giving this one a try sooner.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this body lotion. I will buy it again for sure!

Vaseline’s Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion is available as 200ml and 400ml. I paid £1 for the 200ml bottle.

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about a hair care combo I’m using at the moment – Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. And here’s what I think…

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Shampoo is a dream come true. Whilst the creamy white shampoo is boring to look at, it feels amazing on my head and hair. Wow! And then there’s the fragrance which is… unbelievable! 🥰

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Conditioner is just as amazing. It’s really effective, and I don’t need much product at all. And again, there’s this insanely beautiful fragrance…

All in all, I think these products are some of the best hair products I’ve ever tried. I didn’t think Herbal Essences would do anything that would come close to its fabulous originals but this shampoo and conditioner combo comes pretty close in terms of quality and fragrance.

My husband also fell in love with the fragrance of this shampoo. He found these for half price at Sainsbury’s a few weeks ago, and he bought himself 3 bottles! Well, what can I say… if you’re not trying these lovely products, it’s your own fault really!

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Shampoo and Conditioner are available as 400ml for £5.99 each. I paid £2.99 each (special offer).

Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist.

This body mist contains a number of moisturising ingredients, such as glycerin, castor oil and aloe leaf juice. It also contains flower extracts of exotic Tahitian gardenias!

I’ve been using this body mist on and off for a little while, and I love it! It has the most wonderful gardenia fragrance one could imagine. It’s warm, creamy, but it also feels transparent. This body mist is lovely as a spring and summer fragrance!

This body mist is also lightly hydrating. I like to spray it down my back – and it makes my skin super soft!

If you’re interested, Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist is available as 125ml. I paid £10.99 for a pack of 3 bottles (special offer before Yves Rocher closed its UK online shop).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Refreshing Toning Mist

upload-3Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Hydrating Mist. This product used to be called Refreshing Toning Mist (as you can see in the photo), but the name has been changed recently.

Anyhoo… this product contains vitamin E as well as vitamins A, B, F and H which, together with horse chestnut extract, promise to care for dry skin. The product also claims that its antioxidant complex protects skin from environmental damage and that it prevents premature skin aging.

I’ve been using this face mist since January, and I love it! I use it twice a day, right after I’ve cleansed my face, and immediately before I apply my serum.

Sometimes I also spray my face again right before I apply my moisturiser or a facial oil. And I also use it after I’ve put on my make-up, although in this case I spray the product into the air and let it fall on my face. I do this because otherwise I’d end up with wet patches on my face (this is because of the spray nozzle…)

All in all, this face mist is truly outstanding! It’s definitely one of the best face mists I’ve ever tried. It’s super hydrating, and it helps me stay on top of my winter skin. Based on my experience, I’d recommend it to everyone, especially to those with dry skin!

Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Hydrating Mist is available as 150ml for £3.49. This product is 100% vegan and cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). Superdrug usually runs a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price promotion on their Vitamin E products which makes the product even better value!

100% Awesome – Nivea Soft Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Nivea Soft Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream. I received this cream as part of a gift set a little while ago. What is it? Well, this cream can be used on the face and on the body. It promises intense hydration for soft skin. Sounds great!

I’ve given this cream a try, and I’m blown away! Within a couple of days, this cream has become one of my all-time favourite body moisturisers. It feels amazing on my skin, it’s absorbed quickly, it’s very hydrating, but it doesn’t feel like “product”. This is a truly amazing product, and I can’t praise it enough!

Nivea Soft Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream is available as 200ml and 300ml. Both sizes are on special at Superdrug at the moment (£2.10 for the 200ml, £2.94 for the 300ml).
