Empties – May 2021

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in May. I used 12 single-use face masks. Whilst I don’t take photos of those empty face mask sachets, you can read about my latest face mask finds here. Now let’s take a closer look at the big bottles!

1 Elizavecca Milky Piggy Hell-Pore Cleanup AHA Fruit Toner – I love this toner! I hope I can find it again!

2 Cellio It’s True Moisture Skin Pearl Natural Skin Care System – another lovely toner! I’d be happy to get my hands on it again!

3 Simple Purifying Cleansing Lotion – I don’t think I’ll buy this product again. There’s much better stuff out there for a similar price.

4 Herbal Essences Silk N’ Shine Conditoner – my holy grail of hair care!

5 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover. £1 at Poundland for a 400ml bottle.

6 Treacle Moon The Raspberry Kiss – a decent shower gel, but not a favourite. I don’t think I’ll buy it again.

7 My Little Pony Lovely Lipbalm Cutie Kiss – a wonderful lip balm! I hope to find it or a similar one again!

8 NSPA Fruit Extracts Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Rich Body Butter – this is a nice body butter. I believe this fragrance has been discontinued. Unfortunately, I can’t repurchase it.

9 Manhattan Buffalo 12 – I liked this nail polish a lot. I have 20+ similar ones though.

10 Sanctuary Spa Mestizo Acai Rain Shower – I love this! I’m sad that I can’t buy it again.

11 Nivea Love Adventure Caring Shower Gel – it was nice while it lasted, but I also won’t buy this one again.

12 Nivea Indulgent Moisture Cashmere Shower Cream – I enjoyed the moisturising formula, but not the fragrance, so I won’t buy it again.

13 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Shower Jelly (no photo) – OMG, I hate this shower jelly so much! I gave it a second chance, but this stuff is vile, and it’s not worth cleaning the entire shower 360 just to get rid of the green flecks it leaves everywhere. I binned it right after the 2nd try. Good riddance!

14 Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Wash (no photo) – I can’t bring myself to keep using this stuff. Binned.

I think I did well again this month – 4 shower gels finished, 2 unloved shower products binned, some more skin care finished as well. I think June will be good too, as I have a bunch of products in various states of less than half full…

Thanks for reading, lovelies! x

March Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, so it’s time for my Monthly Favourites post. I picked my TOP 3 and all the honourable mentions from the products I’ve reviewed this past month. And here they are.

3rd place – Cellio It’s True Honey Moisture Cream

I love Cellio’s honey face cream. I’m using it twice a day, and it serves me very well!

Runner-Up – Sanctuary Spa Mestizo Acai Rain Shower
WINNER – Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom Body Mist

Sanctuary Spa’s Mestizo shower gel is the bomb! I’m so sad it was a limited edition.
Superdrug’s Blossom body mist smells like Thierry Mugler’s Alien – simply unbeatable!

I loved so many products in March, and this month’s honourable mentions are some of the best ones ever! I love Alberto Balsam’s Stunning Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. Boots Vitamin C Sheet Mask With Added Vitamin C is a new beauty staple. Boots Live + Be Woodland Whisper Body Mist is a new love.

Radox Perky Peach shower gel is another fabulous beauty find, while Westlab Pink Gin Epsom & Himalayan Bathing Salts With Juniperberry, Pomegranate & Lime are some of my favourite bath salts ever!

Have you tried any of these products of would you like to try any of them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for reading! x

Sanctuary Spa Mestizo Acai Rain Shower

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Sanctuary Spa Mestizo Acai Rain Shower gel which I’ve been using on and off for a few weeks now.

This is a limited edition Sanctuary Spa shower gel with an interesting subtitle – “bursting Brazilian vitality”.

This shower gel contains a number of fabulous extracts and oils – apple, acai berry, argan oil, citrus essential oils, mangosteen, pomegranate and passionfruit.

It’s also packed with small oil pearls which burst on the skin and give a little extra hydration. Lovely!

And what’s this shower gel like? It’s paradise in a bottle! It smells absolutely amazing – like a tropical rainforest, exotic flowers and fruits, and despite this, it smells like nothing I’ve ever smelled before – and there’s no cheap coconut or pineapple.

I think this shower gel is simply amazing, and I find it unbelievable that this sensational fragrance was wasted on a limited edition while, at the same time, Sanctuary Spa keeps making these forgettable lemon and orange blossom products.

I also used to have the matching body butter – and I forgot how amazing it was. I hope this fragrance will eventually be recycled for a future limited edition. If so, I’ll make sure to stock up on shower gels and body butters. Fingers crossed!
