Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I said goodbye to in March. I used a few single-use face masks, and you can read my latest face masks reviews here if you’re interested. But let’s get to the big bottles now!
1 Imperial Leather Wild Thing Funky Fruits & Safari Sunset Icons Shower Gel – I love this shower gel, and I’ll buy it again! I also found the matching hand wash at my local B&M Bargains store. Score!
2 Palmolive Gourmet Chocolate Passion Body Butter Shower Cream – I like this one a lot. And yes, I’d like to buy it again.
3 Alberto Balsam Exotic Mango Shampoo & Conditioner – I enjoyed this conditioner (and the matching shampoo). Repurchase? Yes!
4 Beckham Fragrances Signature For Her (x 2)- I love this fragrance! I’m so sad it’s gone. Unfortunately, all the ladies fragrances under the Beckham brand have been discontinued. 😭
5 Skin Food New Zealand Mud Masque – a very nice mud mask! I’d buy it again!
6 M&S Discover Spiced Bergamot– I love this fragrance! I finished this little 30ml, and I’ve already bought a 100ml bottle!
7 M&S Discover Water Jasmine – as above! Love it, and repurchased a big bottle already.
8 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Lavender – this is a really nice body cream. I think I’ll buy it again at some point.
9 Rimmel Stronger Double Duty Base Coat – I love these! I think I have a few more of these – well, I would hope so! I don’t think these can be found in the shops anymore…
10 Soap & Glory Hand Food – not a favourite for hands, but it did a decent job as a foot moisturiser. Overall, too expensive for what it is, so I won’t buy this one again!
11 Beauty UK 73 Blue Moon – a lovely light blue polish. Too bad the brand can’t be found in the shops anymore – their nail polishes were fab!
12 Palmolive Delicate Care with Almond – one of my all-time favourite shower and bath products. I haven’t seen this in a while, and I hope it hasn’t been discontinued. 😬
13 Westlab Cleansing Himalayan Salt – these are awesome, and I have another big bag in my stash.
I think I’ve done well with my empties in March – especially with the fragrances! Which items have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to let me know via the comments, and thanks for reading!

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I’ve been using for a weeks – Skinfood New Zealand Mud Masque. This face mask contains Rotorua mud, spirulina, apricot oil, aloe vera and jojoba oil, and it promises to “work as a deep cleanser to soften and relax the skin“. The mask also claims that results (smaller pores and softer skin) are noticeable after 1 use.
How does it work? Apply it to your face, leave it on for 5-10 minutes, then remove with warm water and a damp cloth. Now let me tell you if this mask is any good…
I’ve used this mask a few times now, and I think it’s really good. It feels deeply cleansing and it makes my pores look smaller. I don’t think that the mask makes my skin feel softer, but I’m happy to report that it doesn’t feel drying. My husband likes this mask too, and we’re happy to continue to use it.
Skinfood New Zealand Mud Masque is available as 100ml. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

Hi there! Today’s post is about the new products I bought in July. Here they are:
Boots Ingredients sheet masks are £2.50 each. But Boots ran a 4 for £3 promotion (Online only!), so I had to buy 4. I would have been stupid not to take advantage of the offer! I opted for 2 Luminous Youth masks (had them before, loved them), 1 Super Hyaluronic mask, and 1 Cleansing & Purifying mask.
I thought Montagne Jeunesse did masks (face, hair and foot masks) only. So I was surprised to find 2 body moisturisers at my local Poundworld store. I got a Buriti Fruit Body Smoothie and a Goji Berry Body Smoothie. £1 each.
I was happy to pick up a L’Oréal Elvive Smooth & Polish Thermo Detangling Spray for £1 (Poundland). And I got myself an Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel with Grape (£4.99, TK Maxx) and a Skinfood Mud Masque (£4.99, TK Maxx).
Two more Sukin products moved in with me! Sukin’s Clarifying Facial Tonic was £4.99 and Sukin’s Anti-Pollution Facial Masque was £5.99. The OM SHE Aromatherapy Skin Lift Hydrating Face Serum was £4.99. These 3 products came from TK Maxx.
And these are the last 3 products: Super Facialist By Una Brennan Pore Purifying Clay Mask (£4.99, TK Maxx), Alberto Balsam Colour Bright Detangler + UV Filter and My Little Pony Leave-In Hair Detangler. The 2 detangling sprays came from Poundworld, and they were £1 each.
This is what I bought in July. Lots of masks, I know! I’ll try to review all these products asap. Any comments? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂
