Carex Original Shower Gel, Carex Moisture Plus Shower Cream

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 shower products – Carex Original Shower Gel and Carex Moisture Plus Shower Cream. I picked these up for £1 each (Poundland). I’ve been using these shower gels for a little while now, and here’s what I think.

Carex Original Shower Gel was a nice surprise. This shower gel has a very pleasant, refreshing and transparent blue fragrance. It isn’t spectacular, but it’s very well done, and I think it’s definitely one of the best unisex shower gels I’ve ever tried. I would repurchase it!

Carex Moisture Plus Shower Cream is the best “white” shower cream I’ve ever used. I love the cute fragrance which I can’t really describe… but I’d say the shower gel smells like multi-vitamin juice mixed with velvet and sunshine. 😜 I think the formula is lovely too, and I agree with Carex that this shower cream is moisturising. I’ll buy this one again for sure! Well done, Carex!

Carex Original Shower Gel and Carex Moisture Plus Shower Cream are available as 250ml and 500ml. Prices depend on where you shop. I paid £1 each for the big bottles (Poundland).

Empties – July 2019

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I emptied last month. I’m not doing a big intro, but let me say that I finished quite a few products. Please have a look! 🙂

1-4 Ted Baker Toiletries (travel sizes) – whilst I’m grateful to have received a Ted Baker toiletries gift set from a friend, I would not purchase these products for myself.

5 Imperial Leather Polynesian Spa Passion Flower & Almond Milk Spa Escape Shower Cream – a nice enough shower gel. But I won’t repurchase it because it’s nothing special. This is a shared empty because my husband used this shower gel too.

6 Sukin Anti-Pollution Oil Balancing + Charcoal Facial Masque – this is a great face mask. I’d love to repurchase it!

7 The Crème Shop Depuffing + Anti-Imflammatory Rose Oil Overnight Gel Mask – I enjoyed this product a lot. I might repurchase it (I say might because there are so many other night creams I want to try first…)

8 Nivea Free Time Shower Cream – I liked this shower cream a lot, and I would like to buy it again!

9 Radox Eastern Spirit Shower Gel – this is a nice shower gel. I’d buy it again, but I haven’t seen it in a while. I guess it was discontinued… This one’s a shared empty – my husband used and enjoyed this shower gel too!

10 Superdrug Refreshing Foaming Facial Wash For Normal Skin – this is an OK face wash. It’s been discontinued, but I wouldn’t repurchase it anyway.

11 Rimmel Lycra Pro 436 White Bright – good enough as a base coat, but I wouldn’t repurchase this polish.

12 MUA Lipstick Shade 11 – this is one of the best natural-yet-not-nude lipsticks out there. It’s a true “my lips but better” shade for me. With the help of a lip brush I was able to get every last bit of product out of the bullet! I have a backup, and I will review this lippie shortly. 😊

13 Yves Rocher Nourishing Lip Balm Framboise – I enjoyed this lip balm a lot. Since YR ceased trading in the UK, I don’t think I’ll (be able to) buy this one again.

14 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – my holy grail foundation!

15 Anovia Healthy Shine Bamboo & Lotus Conditioner – this is an average conditioner that I won’t repurchase.

16 Carex Original Shower Gel – I’ll review this one shortly! This is another shared empty.

17 Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest – another amazing shower gel from Palmolive. This one’s definitely worth buying again. By the way, this one’s another shared empty.

I’ve also used a few single-use face masks. I never keep the empty sachets, but you can read my latest face mask reviews if you click here. All in all, I’m happy with the stuff I emptied this month. Whilst more than half the products I emptied were small items, I’m glad to have finished those, and I’m thrilled (!) that I managed to say goodbye to a few more shower gels (the Radox and Carex ones took ages to finish even though my husband helped). What have you emptied recently? Feel free to comment, and thanks for stopping by!
