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.

Saturday 17 Dec – Boots Glow Pineapple Sleep Mask

And Saturday’s post was about this sleep mask. Click here to take a look!

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!

Boots Glow Pineapple Sleep Mask

Hi there! Today’s short post is about this Boots Glow Pineapple Sleep Mask. This is a night cream with a fancy name, and it promises to smooth and to hydrate the skin. I’ve been using this product for about a month now, and here’s what I think.

I’ve been positively surprised by this product. While the gel moisturiser from the same range wasn’t a favourite, this sleep mask is much better. I love the thick formula, although I always mist my face before I use this sleep mask to lock in some extra moisture, and to make it easier to massage it into my skin.

I’m very happy with the nourishing formula, although it’s probably not the best product if your skin tends to develop impurities. I’ve also been using product as a day cream during the recent cold spell, and I’m happy to report that it’s a brilliant base for my foundation. Very nice! The fragrance is alright – it’s not annoying, so this is a huge step up from the gel moisturiser.

I’m happy with this product and I would recommend it. If you’re interested, Boots Glow Pineapple Sleep Mask is available as 50ml for £4. I bought 3 items from this range on a 3 for 2 special offer.

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 Serum

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Glow Pineapple Serum.

This serum promises “to smooth and care for the skin.” This isn’t the most specific claim, but I guess they don’t really bother with a £4 product.

Anyhoo… I’ve been using this product for a few weeks now. And I think it’s actually quite alright. The serum I used before (also Boots) wasn’t great, so this one was much nicer from day 1!

This is a typical serum formula. It’s not a gel, but it’s also not watery. I guess it’s something in between. Quite nice. I like it!

The serum sinks into my skin beautifully. It does feel like “product” but in the most non-smothering way. It feels quite good.

Would I say that this serum is smoothing and caring? I guess it is. Don’t expect miracles, but this is definitely a decent serum, especially for the tiny price tag.

If you’re interested, Boots Glow Pineapple Serum is available as 30ml for £4 (I think it’s £3 at the moment for Advantage Card holders). I bought this product when Boots ran a 3 for 2 promotion on their Glow products.

By the way, according to Boots, this product is vegan and cruelty-free! 😍
