Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in August. I went through a lot of single-use face masks, and you can click here if you’d like to check out my latest face mask finds. Now let’s take a closer look at the big bottles, tubes and tubs!
1 Pacifica Hawaiian Ruby Guava Body Wash – this is a really nice shower gel. It smells sweet and warm, and the formula is very cleansing but also gentle on the skin. Nice one!
2 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Smoothing All Over Body Cream With Acacia Collagen – I love this body cream. A definite repurchase!
3 Maui Moisture Strength & Anti-Breakage Agave Conditioner For Chemically Damaged Hair – not a terrible conditioner, but the not the most suitable one for my hair type. I won’t buy it again.
4 Radox Mineral Therapy Sleep Aromatherapy Bath Salts With Lavender & Ylang Ylang – these are wonderful bath salts! A definite repurchase!
5 Agent Provocateur Fatale Pink Eau De Parfum – a major disappointment. This stuff isn’t worth anyone’s time or money.
6 M&S The Fragrance Collection Vanilla & Woods Eau De Toilette – I LOVE this fragrance. It’s a modern classic. Feminine and cuddly. An ageless beauty. You wouldn’t believe it considering the ridiculously low price, but this fragrance is simply fabulous.
7 Superdrug Calm Skin Skincare De-Stress Refreshing Facial Spritz – I love this face mist. Too bad it has been discontinued, otherwise I’d pick it up again!
8 Palmolive Aroma Therapy Morning Tonic – I love this shower gel. Why did Palmolive discontinue this beauty? Fortunately, I have one more bottle in my stash.
9 Palmolive Aroma Therapy Sensual – same as above! 😢
10 Sanctuary Spa Ultra Rich Wet Skin Moisture Miracle – this is a really nice in-shower moisturiser, and I can see myself buying it again.
11 Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Eye Cream – this £1 eye cream is much better than its price suggests. A very likely repurchase.
12 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist (x2) – this is the perfect dupe for Thierry Mugler’s Alien – but this body mist is actually better considering that it wraps you in a nice fragrance cloud (which L’Oréal’s watered-down version of Alien can’t do anymore). I have at least 2 more bottles in my stash, and I will continue to buy this body mist.
13 Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Night Cream – a very good night cream! I might buy it again!
14 Poundland Anti-Ageing Retinol Day Cream With SPF 25 – same as above! 👌
I’m happy with the amount of products I finished in August. I don’t think September will be a great month for empties since I finished a lot of skin care in August already, but let’s see how it goes. Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try any of them? What have you finished recently? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading!

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in July. I used a few single-use face masks, and you can click here if you’d like to read my latest face mask reviews. Now let’s look at the big bottles…
1 Herbal Essences Moisture Balance Conditioner – a holy grail product. I have plenty of back-up!
2 Original Source Skin Quench Blackcurrant & Moringa Oil Moisturising Shower – this is a nice one! I’d like to buy it again, but it’s been discontinued. I think I’ve seen one more bottle in my stash.
3 Original Source Pink Grapefruit Shower – a really nice shower gel too. Also discontinued. I do have some back-up though.
4 M&S Fragrance Collection Mimosa & Bergamot Eau De Toilette – this is a decent fragrance, and it was nice while it lasted, but I wouldn’t buy it again.
5 Sanctuary Spa Foaming Bath Soak (travel size) – I liked this bath soak a lot, and I’d like to buy the full size.
6 Revlon Nail Care Base Coat – a decent base coat. I would buy it again.
7 Palmolive Aromatherapy Absolute Relax – one of my holy grail shower products. My husband loves it too. I will buy this one again, no doubt!
8 Imperial Leather Mauritian Spa – one of my old favourites. I have one more bottle in my stash.
9 Imperial Leather Beautiful Indulgence Rich Moisturising Body Wash – I like this one a lot too. Also discontinued. 😦 But I have one more bottle.
10 Boots Ingredients Glycolic Acid Toner – this is a very basic toner. I won’t buy it again.
11 Olay Anti-Wrinkle Face Wash With Exfoliating Particles – this is a nice cream wash. Definitely repurchase-worthy.
12 Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Facial Serum With SPF 25 – this is a very good serum which I aim to buy again soon!
This is everything I emptied in July. Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try them? Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to get in touch, and thanks for reading! x

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Night Cream which I’ve been using since the end of April.
This night cream contains 1% retinyl palmitate, hyaluronic acid, green tea extract and shea butter. It promises to fight the signs of ageing, to hydrate and regenerate the skin, and to improve the skin’s elasticity. The result is firmer and younger looking skin.
I like this night cream a lot. I’m definitely impressed by it! I love how nourishing it is. It’s perfect for my dry skin. I also like the gentle formula. I haven’t experienced any issues. Au contraire! Thanks to this night cream, I’m waking up to refreshed and well-rested looking skin – even though I often sleep less than 5 hours.
I cannot comment on how well this night cream fights visible signs of ageing. I’ve always taken great care of my skin, and I wouldn’t expect any single new product to outperform every other skin care product I’m using (or have used in the past).
In any event, based on my experience, I’d recommend this night cream. Priced at £3, the 50ml tub is a total steal! This is quite possibly the cheapest retinol night cream. So if you’re on a budget, you might want to check out this product! Always make sure you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients, and keep in mind that retinol makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so sunscreen is a must for your day skin care if you go out. What else? Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Retinol Night Cream is also suitable for vegans – what’s not to like?
