Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished last month. I don’t feel like doing a big intro, so here they are:
1 Salvador Dali Dalissime Eau De Toilette – one of my all-time favourite fragrances. I have another bottle in my stash. 😍
2 Garnier Pure Active Intensive Charcoal Scrub – another Garnier product I won’t repurchase. This scrub is too basic.
3 Boots Glow Banana Toner – not the best toner for me. I won’t buy it again.
4 The Body Shop Neroli Jasmin Body Lotion – one of the best body lotions ever. EVER. Unfortunately, this amazing fragrance has been discontinued. But I have 1 more body lotion, 2 shower gels and 1 eau de toilette with the beautiful Neroli Jasmin fragrance left in my stash! 😍
5 Garnier Skin Active Soothing Botanical Cleansing Milk With Rose Water – this cleanser is OK but not great. I wouldn’t buy it again.
6 Olay Complete Lightweight Day Fluid – an all-time favourite beauty staple. I would always be more than happy to buy this amazing moisturiser again.
7 Palmolive Aroma Therapy Absolute Relax – one of my all-time favourites! I have a few more of these!
8 Imperial Leather You Are My Sunshine Rainbow Rose & Raspberry Kisses Icons Shower Gel – a nice shower gel. A limited edition, unfortunately.
9 Treacle Moon The Honeycomb Secret Bath And Shower Gel – my husband loves this shower and bath gel just as much as I do. In fact, he’s been using most of it. A definite repurchase.
9 Palmolive Hidden Heaven Shower Gel – I love this shower gel! A definite repurchase!
10 Pantene Pro-V Miracles Silky & Glowing Biotin & Hydrolised Silk Protein Conditioner – not the best conditioner for my hair type. This shampoo and conditioner combo gave me crunchy hair. Its tagline could be “A crunch fest with every wash.” Repurchase? Absolutely not!
12 Morrisons Revive Pink Grapefruit & Basil Extracts Shower Gel – this shower gel is too basic. I won’t buy it again.
I did well again in August. Hopefully I can keep it up over the next few months!

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub.
This product contains salicylic acid, vitamin C, grapefruit and pomegranate extracts, and it’s aimed at people with oily / problem skin. It promises to unclog and tighten pores and to give skin a radiant glow.
You’re supposed to use the product as a daily face wash. Since I use a konjac or cellulose sponge (+ face wash) to cleanse my face in the shower every morning, I used this product the same way – and I was impressed!
This gel scrub is wonderful. It lathers up very well (it’s like it was designed to be used with a konjac sponge), it feels powerful but not harsh, and it really seems to “sweep up” grease and grime to give my pores a deep cleanse.
I also think that this gel scrub has skin brightening properties. Every time I use this gel scrub, my skin tone looks incredibly even and, yes, radiant. It’s awesome!
Since I have dry and moody skin, I can’t use this gel scrub every day. At the moment I’m using it once or twice a week which seems to work out perfectly.
Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub is available as 150ml for £4.99. I paid £3.33 (special offer).

Hi there! Most of the time I use Olay products on my face, but occasionally I pick up products from other brands for a change, like this Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash which I bought for half price at the drugstore.
This face wash is aimed at people with oily skin that’s prone to imperfections, and it claims to target these imperfections, to awaken skin and to tighten pores.
OK, I’ve got dry skin, so this product isn’t really aimed at me. However, my pores could do with a little tightening and I wouldn’t say no to my skin being awakened, so I’ve been using this face wash twice daily for just over a week now.
To be honest, I didn’t notice any difference at all. My pores are exactly as they were a week ago and my skin does not look any fresher or more awakened. I’m also not loving the scent; it’s a tad too sweet for my taste.
However, I think this face wash is really great at removing make-up, so I’ll be using it up for sure.
Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Wash is available as 200 ml. It’s usually £4.99, but at the moment it’s on special offer at the two big drugstores.
