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 the moisturiser that I’ve been using since the end of July – Olay Essentials Complete Care Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion.
This product contains vitamins B3, E and pro-vitamin B5, and it promises 24-hour hydration, protection from sun exposure (SPF 15) and more radiant looking skin.
I’ve been using this moisturiser for quite some time now, and I think it’s awesome! It makes my skin feel soft and well hydrated, and it’s a perfect base for make-up. I also love the light-reflecting particles in this moisturiser because they really give my skin a healthy looking glow! Another thing I love about this moisturier is its subtle & sunny mandarin fragrance – to me it smells like a sunrise in Palermo.
I would recommend this moisturiser to everyone! Olay Essentials Complete Care Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion is available as 75ml for £10. I paid £4.50 (better than half price offer, Asda).

Hi there! If you read my last beauty haul post, you know I bought a beautiful Olay gift set with a compact mirror and a full size 50 ml Olay Compete Day Cream. I’ve said it before – I’m a total Olay nut. And it’s my mission in life to try all the Olay products out there. 🙂
I had this face cream before, but that was ages ago and quite some time before I fell in love with Olay’s Complete Day Fluid. So I had another look at Olay’s regular Complete Face Cream.
This face cream is for women with normal and dry skin. It has SPF15 which is great for those of us who don’t want to bother with ‘real’ sunscreen all the time. I’m very happy with how well this face cream moisturises my skin and how gentle it is. I’m not the most careful person and I already got the product in my eyes by accident on a few occasions, but it didn’t sting or burn at all. Great stuff!
Olay’s Complete face cream doesn’t clog my pores at all. My skin feels moisturised, but it can still breathe. It feels great on my skin. I love it! I also adore the light fragrance (the same one they use for the day fluid) which is sunny, yellow, youthful, pure and happy!
Whilst I still prefer the fluid formula, I will definitely buy this face cream again. I think it would be great to use it during the colder seasons when my skin is quite dry. Saying this, the cream is perfectly suitable for the warmer seasons – and if you’ve had it before, I’m sure you will agree.
Olay Complete Day Cream is available as 50 ml for about £10 – but there is always a half price or BOGOF offer somewhere. I think this is a great face cream and I would definitely recommend it.

Hi there! Today I want to tell you why this moisturiser has been my favourite for almost ten years. Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Fluid is definitely one of the best (Maybe even THE best?) facial moisturisers you can buy for less than a fiver. It’s for normal and oily skin, but it works for my dry and sensitive skin too.
I love the formula – it’s a light fluid that is easily absorbed and therefore it’s a perfect base for make-up. It’s also not greasy, so it doesn’t clog pores. And if you’ve got a really-dry-skin-day, you can use it every couple of hours because it doesn’t build up on the skin – it sinks right in! I also love that it’s got SPF 15 which means that I don’t have to bother with ‘real’ sunscreen every time I leave the house on a sunny summer day.
And then there’s this gorgeous (yet subtle) scent that I have fallen in love with the first time I have used this fluid. I would describe this scent as youthful, clean, pure, fresh, yellow and sunny. Even now, years later, this wonderful scent still puts a smile on my face – every day. But wait, there’s more!
Olay Complete Care has taken care of lines and wrinkles which I’ve had since I was a teenager. I can’t tell you if it took six months, a year or longer for the lines to disappear, but it’s a fact that now, at the age of 33, I no longer have certain lines and wrinkles which I’ve had around 15 years ago.
To sum it up: I could rave about this product for hours and I cannot recommend it enough. I think Olay Complete Care day fluid is the perfect no-fuss facial moisturiser for all women between 13 and 113. If you haven’t already tried it, then you should give it a try now! 😉
Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Fluid is available as 100 ml and 200 ml. (I always buy the 200 ml bottle which lasts me for six months.) The 100 ml bottle retails for £6, the 200 ml bottle is yours for £10. However, there’s always a half price or buy one get one free offer at some drugstore or supermarket. This means the 100 ml bottle can be yours for £3, or you can buy the 200 ml bottle for £5.
If you think you would love to try it, but would prefer a moisturiser with more active anti-wrinkle properties, I recommend you try this Olay day lotion.
