Empties – November 2019

Hi there! November is behind us, and today’s post is about my November 2019 beauty trash. 🙂 I used quite a few single-use face masks. I didn’t keep the empty sachets, but if you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here. Onto the big empties!

1 Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash – I enjoyed this face wash, and I’d like to buy it again (once I’m at least halfway through my face wash stash).

2 Imperial Leather Relaxing Orchid & Ylang Ylang Infusions Bath Cream – this a lovely bath cream that I will buy again.

3 Jennifer Lopez Glow EdT – whilst I’m not a fan of the singer/actress J Lo, I’m enjoying quite a few of her fragrances. I can definitely see myself buying a big 100ml bottle of Glow again!

4 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – my holy grail foundation! And this is the original Pan Stik – not the stuff they sell now…

5 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract – this is a lovely body cream. It’s a limited edition, but I have one more tub!

6 Nourish Protect Cooling Toning Mist – this is a very good face mist. I enjoyed using it! I’ll buy it again if it’s on special.

7 Good Things Spa Manuka Honey Nourishing Body Wash – another amazing body wash that I’d like to pick up again!

8 Boots Time Delay Deep Cleansing Facial Exfoliator – this stuff was good but not great. It’s been discontinued now, but I wouldn’t have repurchased it anyway.

9 Maybelline Black Eyeliner – this is a very good eyeliner. It may have been the last of the bunch or I might have a few more (I used to buy these in bulk). I’d buy these eyeliners again.

10 Boots No 7 Devil’s Delight Nail Polish – this is a good quality polish. I might have a backup (from one of the countless half price Christmas gift sets I bought over the past few years). Anyhoo… I’m happy to have finished another colour polish!

11 Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream SPF15 – this day cream was very nice. I’m sure I’ll buy it again!

12 L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Detangling Conditioner – a very unspectacular conditioner. Repurchase? Nope!

13 Imperial Leather Moroccan Spa Orange Blossom & Argan Oil Spa Escape Bath Cream – another amazing bath cream that I’ll buy again soon!

14 Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Silky Lotion – I enjoyed this silky lotion very much. I have 2 more bottles (old and new packaging).

I’m pleased with what I finished last month – I like to finish big bottles as well as small items like nail polish and eyeliner. I think I’ve done well again! Which products have you finished lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for reading! 😊

August Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last working day of the month, so today’s post is about my current beauty favourites. As always, I’ve picked my favourites from all the products I reviewed this past month. I’ll start with the TOP 3, but I’ve thrown in a few honourable mentions as well.

3rd place – Superdrug B. Vitalised Vitamin Facial Spritz
This is a lovely face mist that I can’t wait to buy again.

Runner-Up – Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream SPF 15
Boots did a fantastic job with this day cream. It hydrates my skin deeply, and I really love it!

WINNER – Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution
This is the best skin brightening product I’ve ever tried. Priced at £5.99, it’s a total steal!

Onto the honourable mentions! I love Boots’ Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash (which came in 4th), Original Source’s Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint is just fabulous, and Good Things Spa’s Manuka Honey Nourishing Body Wash is super lovely.

I’m enjoying Manhattan’s Lip Jelly, I adore the 3 Max Factor Eyeshadows I’m using at the moment, and I fell in love with Superdrug’s B. Vivid 058 Filigree Eyeshadow.

Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream SPF15

Hi there! Today’s post is about the face cream I’m using at the moment – Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream with SPF 15. This face cream for people with normal to dry skin promises to brighten and protect skin for 24 hours. I’ve been using this face cream for a few weeks now, and here’s what I think.

I’m enjoying this day cream very much! I can’t comment on whether it’s actually brightening (my face has reached maximum brightness levels since I started using Superdrug’s Skin Brightening Solution almost 2 months ago). However, I think this day cream is very good because it feels rich and insanely moisturising, and it plays amazingly well with my foundation (Max Factor Pan Stik). I think Boots did a fantastic job with this day cream!

Boots Botanics All Bright Day Cream with SPF15 is available as 50ml for £6.99. I paid £2.50 (clearance, old packaging).
