Empties – August 2022

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!

July Beauty Awards

Hi there! Happy Friday! It’s the last working day of the month, so today’s post is about my favourite products in July. And here are the TOP 3!

3rd place – Yves Rocher Un Matin Au Jardin Cerisier En Fleurs Eau De Toilette
Runner-Up – Salvador Dali Dalissime Eau De Toilette

The bronze medal goes to Yves Rocher for their beautiful Cerisier En Fleurs fragrance. This was a lovely surprise!

And Salvador Dali’s Dalissime came in 2nd. Dalissime is one of my all-time favourite fragrances, and it would have taken the number 1 spot in almost any other month – just not this month.

WINNER – Aussie Mega Shampoo & Conditioner

What can I say about Aussie Mega? These 2 products are pure heaven for daily hair washers like me! My husband also loves the shampoo – he uses a mild shampoo in the morning, but Aussie Mega is the perfect after-work shampoo for him.

This is it for this month. Please feel free to let me know if you’ve tried any of these products. Or let me know which products you can’t get enough of at the moment. And thanks for stopping by today! xx

100% Awesome – Salvador Dali Dalissime Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance. Not just any fragrance, but a fragrance that I’ve loved dearly since the late 90s – Salvador Dali Dalissime Eau De Toilette. I’ve gone through numerous 30ml and 100ml bottles over the years, and I guess I really could (should?) have reviewed it sooner. Well, better late than never, right? 😁

This fragrance contains the following notes: peach, apricot, pineapple and plum (top notes), tagetes, jasmine, rose, narcissus and lily-of-the-valley (heart notes), and vanilla, sandalwood, musk, litchi, amber and tonka bean (base notes).

What does this fragrance smell like? It smells like… paradise! OK, let me be more specific. Dalissime is a beautiful mix of peach, apricot, vanilla, amber, rose and other floral notes. The 2 strongest notes are peach and rose, and they remind me of Lancôme Trésor. Dalissime and Trésor do NOT smell alike, but they share a few important notes (peach, apricot, rose, vanilla, etc), and they both have that 90s perfume aura. 🥰

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this fragrance! If you’re interested, Salvador Dali Dalissime Eau De Toilette is available as 30ml and 100ml. Prices vary greatly, but you can find the small 30ml bottle for under £15, and the big 100ml bottle for under £25.
