Hi there! I hope you had a great start into the week and into June. 😘 Today’s post is about all the products I managed to finish in May. I’ve done really well, and here’s everything I said goodbye to.
1 Yves Rocher Monoï Eau Des Vahinés Eau De Toilette – this is an amazing fragrance! I have a few more bottles in my stash!
2 Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist – another lovely fragance from Yves Rocher. Yes, I have a few more of these too!
3 Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion – one of my of favourite body moisturisers. I will buy it again, no doubt!
4 Manhattan Tasty Lips Lipgloss American Grapefruit – a truly amazing lipgloss. If this one hadn’t been discontinued, I’d pick it up again.
5 Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution – this is the best pore-unclogging and brightening product I’ve never used. I have a few more of these in my stash!
6 Boots The Garden Collection Rose Body Lotion (travel size) – this is a lovely non-greasy body lotion which I’d be happy to buy again.
7 Smack Beauty Sleeping Beauty Firming Night Cream – this is an OK night cream. I wouldn’t buy it again as there’s much better stuff out there.
8 Nivea Clay Fresh Deep Cleansing Shower Ginger & Basil Scent – a nice shower gel. I think I’ll buy it again!
9 Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Conditioner – one of the best conditioners I’ve ever used. I’ve already repurchased it (+ the matching shampoo).
10 Radox Scent Touch Feel Positive – this is a nice shower gel that I might buy again.
11 Rightguard Shower + Oils Purple Orchid – I love this shower gel! I’ll buy it again next time I see it.
12 Radox Eastern Spirit – this is a really nice bath gel. Unfortunately, this fragrance has been discontinued.
13 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover. I have a few more bottles in my stash.
14 Burberry Brit Red – I loved this fragrance! Too bad it was a limited edition…
15 Primark PS… Pink Grapefruit Overnight Jelly Mask – this is a decent jelly moisturiser, but I won’t buy it again as there’s better stuff waiting to be used!
I also used a few single-use face masks. If you’d like to know which masks I tried recently, click here. I’m very happy with what I finished this month. I hope June will be amazing for empties too!
Thanks for stopping by! 🥰

Hi there! It’s the last working day of the month, so today’s post is about my current beauty favourites. As always, I’ve picked my favourites from all the products I reviewed this past month. I’ll start with the TOP 3, but I’ve thrown in a few honourable mentions as well.
3rd place – Superdrug B. Vitalised Vitamin Facial Spritz
This is a lovely face mist that I can’t wait to buy again.
Runner-Up – Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream SPF 15
Boots did a fantastic job with this day cream. It hydrates my skin deeply, and I really love it!
WINNER – Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution
This is the best skin brightening product I’ve ever tried. Priced at £5.99, it’s a total steal!
Onto the honourable mentions! I love Boots’ Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash (which came in 4th), Original Source’s Hydrating Water Infusions Grapefruit & Mint is just fabulous, and Good Things Spa’s Manuka Honey Nourishing Body Wash is super lovely.
I’m enjoying Manhattan’s Lip Jelly, I adore the 3 Max Factor Eyeshadows I’m using at the moment, and I fell in love with Superdrug’s B. Vivid 058 Filigree Eyeshadow.
Have you tried any of these products? Or 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 stopping by! 🙂

One more thing of a personal nature – we had another mumps outbreak at work. Yikes! Apparently the initial outbreak happened at a university nearby… Work was crazy with some of us having to cover for other people and other departments. People, if you haven’t had mumps as a child, please get vaccinated. Mumps is serious, and it takes you out for 2 weeks! And if you feel symptoms, please stay at home and don’t spread the virus on the train / bus / work place / sandwich place…
And this is it for this week. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution.
Deep Action is Superdrug’s clear skin range. And now they’ve done 3 new skin care “solutions”. I’ve looked at all of them, but I opted for this one since it seems to be the one with the highest number of active ingredients.
In addition, this product promises to promote brighter and more even skin – so it was an obvious choice!
The instructions state… “Use three times a week, in the evening, on cleansed skin, using a cotton pad. Avoid the eye area and allow to fully absorb into skin.”
I think the instructions could have been a lot better. But in a nutshell, you’re supposed to use this product like a toner – just steer clear of your eye area! Once you’ve gone over your face a couple dozen times (yes, that’s how I do it), just leave it alone for a little while (I give it 10 minutes) before you apply any other products to your face.
I’ve been using this product every other night for about 6 weeks now, and I’m blown away! I think this is the most effective brightening product I’ve ever tried. It’s unbelievably powerful, and it’s even better than Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic. I agree with Superdrug’s claim that results are visible after 2 weeks. This stuff is incredible! I’ve used it on my face and on my body, and I’m happy to report this product took care of everything!
All in all, I’m glad I bought 2 bottles when they were on a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion. When Superdrug ran the same promotion again, I bought 4 more bottles!
Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution is vegan and certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). It’s available as 30ml for £5.99.
