Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in May. And here they are!
1 Lancôme Hypnôse Eau De Parfum – what a fragrance! I’d buy it again, but it has been discontinued. I guess Lancome needs the shelf space for another version of La Vie Est Belle…
2 Thierry Mugler Alien Sunessence Eau de Toilette Legère – one of the best fragrances I’ve ever had. Very much like the original Alien (before L’Oréal ruined the Mugler brand) but lighter and with a touch of lemon. Amazing stuff! If this was relaunched (same formula, of course), I’d buy several bottles.
3 Prada Infusion De Fleur D’Oranger Eau De Parfum – what a wonderful fragrance! 11 stars! I hope it will be relaunched – so I can buy another bottle or two!
4 Daily Defense Advanced Deep Conditioner With Argan Oil From Morocco – what a wonderful conditioner! I have one more tub in my stash (plus 2 keratin hair masks from the same brand).
5 Scinic Sparkling Pore Toner – one of the best toners ever. I hope to find it again!
6 Lux Soft Touch Soap With SilkEssence TM & Rose Water (no photo) – this soap is amazing. A definite repurchase.
7 Rightguard Shower + Elixir With Black Orchid – I love this shower gel. Unfortunately, it seems to be discontinued.
8 L’Oréal Elvive Hydra Hyaluronic Moisture Locking Conditioner – a very good conditioner (the shampoo is lovely too). I will buy it again, no doubt. My husband is currently using the leftover shampoo, and he likes it a lot. (I always use more conditioner than shampoo, and once I finish a conditioner, I pass the matching shampoo on to my husband, and I move on to another shampoo and conditioner combo.)
9 Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life – this is a lovely body scrub. Very effective! I’m not the biggest fan of the girly-pink fragrance of most the Soap & Glory products, but I would consider repurchasing this scrub.
10 Lancôme Hypnôse Hypnotising Shower Gel – a great shower gel. Too bad the Hypnôse line has been discontinued.
11 Lancôme Hypnôse Hypnotising Body Lotion – I liked this body lotion a lot too. Ah well… one can hope for a relaunch at some point.
12 Valjean Labs Replenish Hydration Gel – a really decent moisturiser. But I don’t think I’d buy it again as it doesn’t work as a base for make-up.
And this is it for May. Not too bad, I think! 🙂

Hi there! Today’s post is about Soap & Glory Clean On Me and Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life. These products were part of a big Soap & Glory gift set which I picked up for half price (Boxing Day sale).
Soap & Glory Clean On Me is an OK shower gel. The creamy formula is nice, and if you like the girly Soap & Glory fragrance, this product is probably right up your alley. However, the pump is very annoying. I didn’t count, but I think it took about 20 pumps for half a handful of shower gel.
Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life is a really good body scrub. I like how effective it is! What a nice surprise! I’m not the biggest fan of the pink scent, but this is a great product in every other way. My favourite Soap & Glory product so far!
If you’re interested, Soap & Glory Clean On Me is available as 500ml for £6.50. Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life is available as 200ml for £7.

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 hand creams which I’ve been using on and off since last autumn – Scrub In A Tub Good Old Hand Cream and Soap & Glory Hand Food. This is a product comparison, so let’s see which one’s better…
Scrub In A Tub Good Old Hand Cream is one of the countless vintage-themed beauty products which seem to crop up every now and then. This one looks a bit like Soap & Glory meets Desperate Housewives. But what counts is what’s inside! I think this is a decent hand cream. It’s very rich, but this also means that it takes a bit to sink into the skin. I don’t care for the fragrance – it’s a strong, old-fashioned and random floral scent. I’m using this hand cream as a foot cream, and it works brilliantly.
Soap & Glory Hand Food is a decent hand cream too. It has the generic “pink” Soap & Glory scent. The non-greasy formula is nice, but whenever I use a lot of hand cream or whenever I use the hand cream rather frequently, it causes some product build-up which feels weird and makes me want to wash my hands immediately. It works perfectly on my feet though, so this is another hand cream that I’m using as a foot cream.
Scrub In A Tub Good Old Hand Cream is the winner of The Battle Of The Pink Hand Creams. It’s available as 100ml for £1 (Poundland). Soap & Glory Hand Food is available as 50ml for £3 and as 125ml for £4. The small 50ml tube that I’ve got was part of a half price gift set.

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I finished in March. As always, I used a number of single-use face masks. I don’t keep the empty sachets for my monthly empties posts, but you can click here if you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds. Now… onto the big bottles and tubs! 🙂
1 I Love… Chocolate Truffle Nourishing Body Butter – this is one of my favourite body butters. It smells like chocolate ice cream! I have a few more tubs of this body butter.
2 True Skin Hydrating Facial Water – I’m glad this stuff is finished. I didn’t like it at all. Good riddance!
3 Palmolive Naturals Pampering Touch Shower Milk With Coconut – this is a lovely shower cream. And it doesn’t smell of coconut at all! Great stuff! I will repurchase this one, no doubt.
4 Palmolive Aroma Moments So Luminous Shower Gel – this is a nice shower gel that I can see myself buying again.
5 Super Facialist By Una Brennan Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask – this is a great mask. Very effective! At the moment I have too many face masks to even think about repurchasing any of them, but this is definitely one I would be happy to have again.
6 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish – this is a great product. I had it before, and I’ll buy it again.
7 Daily Defense Moisturising Conditioner With Keratin – one of my all-time favourites. I have 2 more shampoo and conditioner combos in my stash!
8 Dolly’s Mixtures Candy Floss Sweetness & Light Shower Gel – this is a cute shower gel. It’s very sweet! I might buy it again.
9 Yves Rocher Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Bath & Shower Gel – a lovely shower gel. Too bad it was a limited edition.
10 Yves Rocher Vanille Blanche / White Vanilla Perfumed Body Lotion – another nice YR product. Limited edition as well.
11 Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter – good but not great. I wouldn’t repurchase it, but it were part of a gift set, I wouldn’t mind using it again.
This is what I used up in March. It’s not much compared to the past few months, but I’m not unhappy. As long as I finish at least 10 products per month, I won’t complain. 😎
What have you used up recently? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Hi there! Today’s post is about Soap & Glory‘s The Righteous Butter which is aimed at women with dry to very dry skin. On the side of the tub it reads “a body moisturizing formula so virtuous, you might swear you’re wearing velvet”.
Soap and Glory also went to great lengths to describe the fragrance – apparently it’s a mix of leafy greens, bergamot, mandarin, fruity and floral notes, as well as musk, oakmoss, amber and woody notes.
I’ve been using this body butter for a week now, and I think it’s good but not great. I like the formula. It’s easy to spread, and it absorbs quickly (great for when you’re in a hurry). It hydrates my skin reasonably well without feeling sticky. And a look at the bottom of the tub reveals that this body butter contains quality ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and cocoa seed butter.
Having said that, there are many other body butters (lotions even) which hydrate skin much better and which cost a lot less. As someone who actually has very dry skin, I have to say that this body butter is nothing special.
I also don’t care for the fragrance. It’s a nice enough but forgettable girly pink fragrance. I think it smells like aloe, watermelon and candy floss. It’s not a bad fragrance, but it’s rather unspectacular.
Soap & Glory‘s The Righteous Butter is available as 50ml for £3 and 300ml for £10. I have a 200ml tub which is a special size they did for their Christmas gift sets.
