Hi there! November is behind us, and today’s post is about my November 2019 beauty trash. 🙂 I used quite a few single-use face masks. I didn’t keep the empty sachets, but if you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here. Onto the big empties!
1 Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash – I enjoyed this face wash, and I’d like to buy it again (once I’m at least halfway through my face wash stash).
2 Imperial Leather Relaxing Orchid & Ylang Ylang Infusions Bath Cream – this a lovely bath cream that I will buy again.
3 Jennifer Lopez Glow EdT – whilst I’m not a fan of the singer/actress J Lo, I’m enjoying quite a few of her fragrances. I can definitely see myself buying a big 100ml bottle of Glow again!
4 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – my holy grail foundation! And this is the original Pan Stik – not the stuff they sell now…
5 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract – this is a lovely body cream. It’s a limited edition, but I have one more tub!
6 Nourish Protect Cooling Toning Mist – this is a very good face mist. I enjoyed using it! I’ll buy it again if it’s on special.
7 Good Things Spa Manuka Honey Nourishing Body Wash – another amazing body wash that I’d like to pick up again!
8 Boots Time Delay Deep Cleansing Facial Exfoliator – this stuff was good but not great. It’s been discontinued now, but I wouldn’t have repurchased it anyway.
9 Maybelline Black Eyeliner – this is a very good eyeliner. It may have been the last of the bunch or I might have a few more (I used to buy these in bulk). I’d buy these eyeliners again.
10 Boots No 7 Devil’s Delight Nail Polish – this is a good quality polish. I might have a backup (from one of the countless half price Christmas gift sets I bought over the past few years). Anyhoo… I’m happy to have finished another colour polish!
11 Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream SPF15 – this day cream was very nice. I’m sure I’ll buy it again!
12 L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Detangling Conditioner – a very unspectacular conditioner. Repurchase? Nope!
13 Imperial Leather Moroccan Spa Orange Blossom & Argan Oil Spa Escape Bath Cream – another amazing bath cream that I’ll buy again soon!
14 Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Silky Lotion – I enjoyed this silky lotion very much. I have 2 more bottles (old and new packaging).
I’m pleased with what I finished last month – I like to finish big bottles as well as small items like nail polish and eyeliner. I think I’ve done well again! Which products have you finished lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for reading! 😊

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 hair care products I’m using at the moment – L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo & Detangling Conditioner. These products contain keratin, vitamins and castor oil, and they’re aimed at people with long hair (Duh!). The shampoo promises to reinforce fragile hair, and the conditioner claims to detangle hair with less breakage.
L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo is not great. Whilst I think that the shampoo feels cleansing, it also seems to leave a film behind – I think it might be from the castor oil, but I don’t really know. I’ve noticed that the shampoo tangles up my hair. This isn’t great. And there’s the fragrance – I don’t like the strong and dense fragrance (which reminds me of the questionable hairsprays my mum used in the 80s). All in all, I find the shampoo disappointing.
L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Detangling Conditioner isn’t great either. I don’t like its fragrance, and I don’t think it detangles my hair well. The conditioner has a weird texture, and I need to use quite a bit of product to be able to detangle my hair. And this weighs my hair down! I’m not impressed.
I just looked back at all the hair products I used and finished this year, and this combo is my least favourite! So… I won’t repurchase these 2 products, and I have no interest in trying anything else from L’Oréal’s Dream Lengths collection.
However, if you’re interested, L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo & Detangling Conditioner are available as 400ml for £4.99 each. I paid £2.25 each (special offer).

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post since May, so let me tell you what I bought since then. 🙂
1 T-Zone Rose Gold Peel Off Mask – I don’t know how much this was, but I picked it up at B&M Bargains. So it’s fair to assume it was dirt cheap!
2 Thierry Mugler Alien Flora Futura – this was on sale, £25 only!
3 Derma V10 konjac sponges – these were 99p each, and I bought 3.
4 Primark PS… Face Masks – I bought a number of Primark face masks. I think I bought about 20. Most of them were 80p.
5 L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo & Detangling Conditioner – these are the big 400ml bottles, and they were £2.25 each.
6 Bling Pop Firming & Brightening Face Mask with Peach – pack of 10 for £5.99.
7 Nature Love Charcoal Face Mask – pack of 5 for £4.99.
8 Retinol-X Anti Aging Sheet Mask – pack of 5 for £4.99.
9 Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Mask – pack of 5 for £4.99.
10 Derma V10 Mango Body Butter – this was 99p for a regular 220ml tub.
11 Manhattan Nail Polishes – blue and red. 99p each.
12 Astor Heidi Klum Lipstick – brownish nude colour, £1.75.
12 Daily Defense Pomegranate Shampoo & Conditioner – these are 473ml bottles, and they were £1.25 each!
And I bought 2 more duvet cover sets from Asda. The one on the left was £14, the one on the right was £7 (half price offer, but it’s back to £14 now for the king size).
I’m really pleased with what I bought. I know I picked up a lot of face masks, but everything else is quite reasonable! What have you bought recently? Have you tried any of the products I bought? Would you like to try any of these products? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂
