Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I said goodbye to in June. I used a few single-use face masks, and you can read about my latest face mask finds by clicking here. But let’s focus on the bigger bottles now!
1 MakeUp Gallery Time To Shine Completely Clear 1 – Poundland’s own brand clear polish. Not the best clear polish, but definitely good enough as a base or top coat.
2 Caudalie Thé Des Vignes Eau Fraîche – a pleasant enough but basic fragrance. I wouldn’t repurchase it.
3 Boots Rose Toner – a decent toner. Better than Garnier’s rose toner, but I don’t think I’ll buy it again.
4 Sukin Rosehip Hydrating Day Cream – not the best face cream for my skin type. Another product I wouldn’t buy again.
5 Nivea Caring Shower Gel Splashy Ocean – a really nice shower gel. I would buy it again.
6 Original Source Blood Orange Daily Scrub – this one is really nice! Too bad it’s been discontinued.
7 I Love… Mango & Papaya Bubble Bath & Shower Crème – a lovely shower gel. I would repurchase it!
8 Herbal Essences Moisture Balance Conditioner – holy grail stuff. I have plenty of backup!
9 Maui Moisture Body Care Detoxifying + Volcanic Ash Body Lotion – not my favourite body lotion. I wouldn’t buy it again.
10 Original Source Mango & Macadamia Shower – this is a lovely shower gel. Unfortunately discontinued. I might have another one in my stash.
And this is everything I finished in June. Not terrible, but definitely not a great month for finishing up stuff. I hope I can do better in July as there’s new stuff I want to buy (but I need to make space first).

Hi there! Today’s the first working day in November, so this post is about all the products I emptied in October. Read on if you’re wondering which products I managed to finish last month.
1 Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Day Hand Cream – a lovely hand cream! I’d be happy to have it again as part of a gift set, but it’s quite expensive, so I won’t buy it on its own.
2 Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Lip Care – this is the best lip care product I’ve ever tried. Repurchase? Yes!
3 Boots Botanics Hydrating Serum Capsules – I loved these! I have one bottle left in my stash (and I’ll use those capsules soon). Unfortunately, these were discontinued. Otherwise, I’d buy them again and again…
4 Boots No. 7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil – one of the best facial oils I’ve tried so far. I will repurchase this one too, no doubt!
5 Boots Extracts Sweet Mango Body Spray – I love this fragrance! It’s sad that Boots discontinued the entire Extracts line, so unfortunately, I can’t buy this one again.
6 Palmolive Italian Gardens Shower Gel – this was an amazing shower gel! Too bad it was a limited edition…
7 Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Non-Greasy Lotion – this is a wonderful body lotion. Repurchase? Yes!
8 Gliss Liquid Silk Conditioner – this is a nice conditioner. I will buy it (and the matching shampoo) again, no doubt!
9 Palmolive Naturals Pomegranate Shower Gel – I liked this shower gel quite a bit. I think I’ll buy it again.
10 Original Source Mango & Macadamia Shower – this is a lovely shower gel. Too bad that it’s no longer available. I have one more bottle though!
11 Beauty UK White Nail Polish – an old favourite! Too bad it’s no longer available!
12 Garnier Skin Active Refreshing Botanical Toner With Aloe Extract – not my favourite. I won’t repurchase it.
13 Superdrug B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz – one of holy grail products! I have plenty of back-up!
14 Primark PS 2 in 1 Base & Top Coat – an OK clear polish. Dries a bit too slowly for my liking. I have 1 more bottle.
15 Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Bath Cream (x2) – I love this bath cream! Unfortunately, this product has been discotinued. I have one more bottle in my stash though.
16 Kallos Multivitamin Energising Hair Mask – a very good hair mask! But it was a 1000ml which took me ages to finish. I won’t ever buy such a big bottle of any kind of product again!
I’m happy with what I finished. I hope I can keep this up until at least the end of the year. Thanks for stopping by! x

Hi there! Today’s post is about three new Original Source shower gels I picked up. (Actually it’s six because I bought two bottles of each fragrance!) I’ve never seen them at the local drugstores, so I was curious when I spotted them at Home Bargains and Poundworld. When I got home, I checked Original Source’s web site and I found out that…
Original Source Extreme Deep Clean Liquorice Body Scrub is for men, Original Source Tropical Pineapple Shower is an Australia-only edition (well, not anymore!), and Original Source Mango & Macadamia Shower is exclusive to Poland (and to British bargain stores, it seems). 🙂
Original Source Extreme Deep Clean with Liquorice is an effective body scrub that’s suitable for every day use. But I don’t use it daily – I use it two to three times per week. In regards to the fragrance – if you love liquorice, you’ll love this scrub. It smells delicious!
Original Source Tropical Pineapple Shower smells almost like the white Haribo gummy bears – but without the plasticky sweetness. It’s very pleasant. Unfortunately the fragrance is also very faint. So by the time your body is lathered up, the fragrance is already gone.
Original Source Mango & Macadamia Shower is one of Original Source’s best products. It smells heavenly. I can’t really describe the fragrance – it’s just… heavenly! I have no idea why this product is exclusive to Poland. I’m sure I’m not the only who’d love to see the sickly sweet Mango shower replaced with this amazing Mango & Macadamia shower.
Original Source shower products are usually around £2.20 – but they’re often on sale and you can find them in bargain stores for £1 or less. 🙂
