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! It’s the first day of a new month, and this means that today’s post is about last month’s beauty empties. And here they are!
1 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Lip Balm – a decent lip balm! I have another one in my stash.
2 Mugler Aura Eau De Parfum Sensuelle – this is a nice fragrance for sure, but I didn’t enjoy it enough to buy it again.
3 Rimmel Lycra Pro 421 Clearly Clear – one of my favourite clear polishes. I should have a few more of these in my stash.
4 Yves Rocher Jardins Du Monde Well-Being Shower Gel With Lavandin – this is a decent shower gel in many ways, but not a favourite, so I won’t be buying it again.
5 Dove Go Fresh Revive Body Wash With Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena Scent – I don’t think I’ll buy this shower gel again. It’s just not repurchase-worthy.
6 Palmolive My Fresh Splash Shower Gel – such a lovely shower gel. Too bad it was a limited edition, otherwise I’d buy it again.
7 Agent Provocateur Aphrodisiaque Eau De Parfum – nice enough while it lasted (my husband liked this fragrance on me), but I wouldn’t buy it again.
8 Garnier Skin Active Soothing Botanical Toner With Rose Water – this is an OK toner. I don’t think I’ll buy it again.
9 B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz – a beauty staple! I have a few more of these!
10 Gliss Liquid Silk Shampoo & Conditioner – I love Gliss’ liquid silk hair products. A definite repurchase!
11 Radox Essentials Soft Care Bath Cream with Milk – one of my favourite bath products ever. Unfortunately, it was discontinued, so I can’t buy it again.
12 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover!
13 Prada Infusion D’Iris Eau De Toilette – a really nice fragrance. Repurchase-worthy!
14 Patisserie De Bain Orange Crush Hand Cream – a decent hand cream, no doubt, but I don’t think that I’ll repurchase it.
15 Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Eye Renewal Gel – one of my all-time favourite eye products. I have at least 2 more in my stash.
I also used 11 single-use face masks. And all in all, I’m happy with what I managed to use up in January!

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 facial cleansing products which I’ve been using since the beginning of May – Garnier Skin Active Soothing Botanical Cleansing Milk & Toner With Rose Water, aimed at people with dry and sensitive skin.
Garnier Skin Active Soothing Botanical Cleansing Milk With Rose Water promises to dissolve and remove make-up gently and effectively. I think it removes make-up OK. This cleanser is better than the 2 other cleansers from this collection (aloe, honey), but it’s not nearly as good as Olay’s cleanser, which sets the standards in the lower price range.
Garnier Skin Active Soothing Botanical Toner With Rose Water claims to remove residue from make-up and cleansing products. I think this toner is OK too, but it’s nowhere near perfect. When I go over my face with a different toner afterwards, the other toner will pick up make-up residue which the Garnier products didn’t catch.
I’ve tried double-cleansing with the cleansing milk and double-toning with the toner – but these products aren’t the best. They smell lovely, but I can’t base my beauty decisions solely on how products smell. All in all, I won’t repurchase these products.
If you’re interested, Garnier Skin Active Soothing Botanical Cleansing Milk & Toner With Rose Water, are available as 200ml each for about £3.49 each. I paid £1.99 each (special offer).
