Best Of Beauty 2020 – Face

Hi there! 2021 has just begun, but I thought I’d share my favourite products from 2020. Since I loved so many products, there’ll be a second post tomorrow. Anyhoo, today’s post is all about my 2020 favourites for the face (in no particular order).

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Hell-Pore Cleanup AHA Fruit Toner

This toner is just WOW! It’s one of my all-time favourite skin care products!

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Aqua Rising Argan Gelato Steam Cream

Another amazing Elizavecca product! I loved this moisturiser!

Boots No. 7 Youthful Replenishing Facial Oil
Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Refreshing Toning Mist

Boots’ facial oil is the best facial oil I’ve used so far. 11 stars!
Superdrug’s face mist has served me very well, and I’ll buy it again soon!

Cellio It’s True Moisture Skin Pearl Natural Skin Care System

Cellio’s toner is one of my current beauty favourites.

Cellio It’s True Acai Berry Moisture Cream

Cellio’s Acai Berry moisturiser is another current beauty favourite.

Scinic Vita Ade Eye Cream

Scinic’s eye cream was incredible. I’m heartbroken that it’s been discontinued.

Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum

Zatik’s insanely rich oil serum has kept my dry skin in great shape this winter.

Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads

Superdrug’s Vitamin C Facial Pads are lovely. I will repurchase them soon.

Primark PS… Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask

Primark’s Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask was one of my favourite beauty finds last summer.

Boots Sheet Mask With Added Dipeptide
Bling Pop Soothing & Brightening Face Mask With Pumpkin

Boots sheet mask with added Dipeptide is simply wonderful.
Bling Pop’s pumpkin sheet mask is awesome too.

DearBoo Lavender & Cactus Everyday Mask
Simple Pollution Protect Sheet Mask

DearBoo’s lavender & cactus mask was a very welcome surprise.
Simple’s Pollution Protect mask has been a firm beauty favourite since the beginning of 2020.

Spascriptions Brightening Spa Treatment Mask With Vitamin C & Glycolic Acid
Montagne Jeunesse Pink Cactus Flower Peel Off

SpaScription’s orange mask is something special.
And Montagne Jeunesse’s cactus flower mask is my favourite peel-off mask of 2020.

And these are my favourite skin care products in 2020. Have you tried any of these products, or would you like to give them a try? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thank you for reading! 😘

Empties – July 2020

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I emptied in July. If you read my blog regularly, you know I don’t take photos of empty face mask sachets, but rest assured that I used lots of face masks last month! If you want to read about my latest face mask finds, click here! Now let’s get to the big bottles…

1 Palmolive Aroma Moments So Relaxed Aromatic Bath Foam (no photo) – one of my favourite bath products! Sorry, I have no photo. My husband was the one who finished the bath foam, and he binned the empty bottle.

2 Spa Premium Epsom Salts (no photo) – I enjoyed these bath salts, and I want to pick them up again next time I swing by my local Poundstretcher. Sorry there’s no photo. My husband finished these bath salts, and, of course, he doesn’t keep empty packs or bottles around. And no, he also doesn’t know that I photograph my trash! 😁

3 Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Grapefruit & Mint Volume Shampoo & Conditioner – not a bad conditioner, but not good enough for me to buy it again.

4 Body-X Twilight Amber – I liked this shower gel a lot, and I’d like to buy it again.

5 Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth – a nice shower gel. The scent is a bit too masculine for my taste, but I think I’ll pick it up again for my husband.

6 Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skincare Refreshing Cleansing Pads – these were lovely, and I’l repurchase them, no doubt!

7 Color Club Nail Polish – not sure about the name of the shade. This was 1 of the 6 polishes from their Bridal Collection set. I used this polish as a base coat. I think I emptied one of these before, so I have 4 more… In any event, I wouldn’t buy any of these non-colours again.

8 Barry M Base Coat Top Coat Nail Hardener – I think this is an OK clear polish for all sorts of purposes. I don’t think I’ll buy it again (unless it’s an emergency purchase).

9 I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Shower & Bath Crème – This is I Love…’s best fragrance. I have several bottles (250ml and 500ml) of this amazing shower gel in my stash.

10 Radox Scent Touch Feel Fresh – I won’t buy this shower gel again. It smells too masculine for my taste.

11 Baylis & Harding Skin Spa Rose, Ylang Ylang & Patchouli Hand Lotion – it took me ages to finish this hand lotion – and most of it was actually used as a foot lotion. But it doesn’t matter. I DID IT! With my husband’s help. So this is a shared empty.

July wasn’t the greatest month for empties, but August should be better. I know I’ll finish a shower gel, a fragrance, a toner, a serum and a face mist well before the end of this week.

Which products have you said goodbye to recently? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for stopping by! 🥰

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads with goji berry and kakadu plum extracts. These pads promise to cleanse skin and to remove impurities, excess oil and makeup – including mascara.

They also claim to leave skin feeling softer, smoother and visibly brighter. I’ve been using these pads on and off for over a month now, and here’s what I think!

I’m enjoying these cleansing pads very much! I use them instead of a toner, and I’m happy to report that they’re effective at removing all sorts of gunk, and that they’re gentle enough to be used around the eyes (which was expected since they claim to remove mascara).

These pads aren’t as powerful as Superdrug’s Glycolic Acid Pads, but these pads are perfect if you have sensitive or delicate skin that doesn’t tolerate AHAs, BHAs and the likes, or if you want an all-in-one pad that you can use around your eyes.

Superdrug‘s Vitamin C Detox Skin Care Refreshing Cleansing Pads (which are vegan and certified cruelty-free) are available for £4.99 (for 60 pads), and most of the time there’s also a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price offer on Superdrug’s Vitamin C products!
