Weekly Recap 12 – 18 December 2022

Hi there! Today’s post is my weekly blog recap. I only managed to do 2 posts this week – pretty much like the past few weeks.

Wednesday 14 Dec – I Love… Mango & Papaya Nourishing Body Butter

On Wednesday I reviewed this body butter that I’m using at the moment. Click here to read the post.

This is already it for this week. I don’t think I’ll be able to post more than 2 posts per weeks for the next few weeks, but hopefully work willl be less crazy in the not too distant future! Fingers crossed!

Empties – November 2022

Hi there! Today’s post is about the products I emptied in November. I’d usually post on the 1st of a new month, but thanks to a ridiculous workload, I haven’t found the time to do a quick Empties post any sooner… Anyhoo, here’s what I finished in November.

1 Hugo Boss Pure Purple Eau De Parfum – this is a very nice fragrance. I enjoyed it, but it’s not something I’d buy for myself.

2 Maui Moisture Body Care Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion – sadly, this body lotion wasn’t for me. I wouldn’t buy it again.

3 Superdrug Fruity Vanilla Ice Cream Shower Gel – a lovely shower gel! My husband enjoyed it too. This was a limited edition shower gel which has sold out, but I have another bottle.

4 Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Wash – simply lovely! Too bad the entire line has been discontinued. I have a few random Extracts products left in my stash, and I’ll use them here and there.

5 Boots Glow Pineapple Gel Moisturiser – this was alright while it lasted. Not a bad moisturiser at all, but I didn’t care for its scent.

6 I Love… Chocolate Truffle Nourishing Body Butter – this is one of the best body butters ever. Too bad it was a limited edition. But I have a few more tubs.

7 MakeUp Gallery Time To Shine Completely Clear 1 (no photo as my husband binned the empty product) – this is a decent clear polish from Poundland. I finished a few of these, and I bought 2 more.

8 Dove Purely Pampering Almond Cream With Hibiscus – an oldie from my stash. I fell out of love with this fragrance, so I wouldn’t repurchase this shower gel any time soon.

9 Revisiting Holy Grail Products – Herbal Essences Silk N’ Shine Conditioner – holy grail stuff! I have plenty more (shampoo and conditioner) in my stash.

10 Imperial Leather Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash Irresistible – this was lovely, but unfortunately this shower gel has been discontinued.

And this is everything I finished in November. Another so-so month for empties. I hope I can finish a few more products in December. Let’s see…

Boots Glow Pineapple Gel Moisturiser

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Glow Pineapple Gel Moisturiser which promises to nourish the skin and to prep the skin for the day ahead (that’s what it says on the tub). Accodring to Boots, this moisturiser is suitable for day and night time use.

I’ve been using this moisturiser on most days for well over a month now (maybe even two months), and I think it’s actually alright. I think the scent could be nicer – it’s an old-fashioned fruity mes. It’s not “off”, and it’s not even bad, but it reminds me of fruity teenage “fragrances” from the 90s. I know because those were my teenage years too! Read on…

This moisturiser is hydrating my skin nicely. I’m actually surprised because I find that gel moisturisers are often more suitable for oilier skin types. But I haven’t had a single dry patch since I’ve been using this moisturiser, and my skin feels nice and comfy. I have no reason to complain actually.

However, I don’t love the glibbery formula and the fragrance is starting to get old. I’m now 80% through the tub, and whilst this moisturiser is actually decent, I know I won’t buy it again.

If you’re interested, Boots Glow Pineapple Gel Moisturiser is available as 50ml for £4. I bought 3 items from this range on a 3 for 2 special offer.
