Empties – June 2018

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I emptied in June. I used a number of single use face masks, but I didn’t keep the empty sachets (I never do). If you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here. Now, onto the big bottles and tubs! 🙂

1 Palmolive Be Sensual Shower Gel – this is a lovely shower gel that I’ll buy again. My husband used it too, so this one’s a shared empty.

2 Garnier Ultimate Blends The Gloss Reviver Conditioner – one of Garnier’s nicer conditioners. I’m in no rush to buy hair care products, but I would buy this conditioner (the matching and shampoo) again.

3 Radox Feel Rejuvenated Shower Cream – I love this shower gel! I need to pick up another bottle pronto!

4 Dr. Organic Organic Aloe Vera Body Wash (travel size) – this isn’t a great shower gel. I won’t purchase it again.

5 Grace Cole Fruit Works Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit Body Butter – it was nice enough while it lasted, but I won’t be buying this body butter again.

6 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – my holy grail foundation!

7 Sukin Purifying Facial Masque – this mask was nice while it lasted, but I won’t buy it again.

8 Dr. Organic Organic Manuka Honey Body Wash (travel size) – I’m glad this one’s gone. Bye!

9 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Dragonfruit – this is a wonderful moisturiser. It’s perfect for even the hottest summer days!

10 Color Club Nail Polish (no photo, sorry) – this is one of the polishes from Color Club’s Bridal collection. I used it as a base coat. I wouldn’t buy it again, but I have a few more similar shades. I’m sorry I have no photo of the empty bottle. I threw it out by accident…

This is everything I emptied in June. I’m disappointed I only managed to finish 10 products, but I’m confident I’ll do much better this month (because I know I’ll have 5 empties alone by the end of this week). Have you tried any of the products I said goodbye to in June? What have you emptied last month? Don’t be shy – get in touch via the comments! 🙂

March Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last working day of the month, so it’s time for my monthly favourites post. As always, I’ve chosen my top 3 from all the products I’ve reviewed this past month. And I have a few honourable mentions as well. Now, onto the top 3!

3rd place – Treacle Moon Warm Cookie Dough Shower & Bath Gel
Runner-Up –  L’Oréal Elvive Triple Resist 60 Second Saviour Intensive Conditioner

Treacle Moon’s Warm Cookie Dough is a fantastic shower gel. And L’Oréal’s 60 Second Saviour is simply sensational.

WINNER – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Dragon Fruit

Superdrug did an incredible job with the limited edition Dragon Fruit body cream. I’m glad I picked up 2 large 475ml tubs!

Onto the honourable mentions! Maybelline’s Color Sensational Treat Me Sweet Lipgloss has blown me away. I liked The Body Shop’s Vanilla Chai Shower Gel. And NSPA’s Clementine scented body products are really lovely too!

Have you tried any of these products? If so, how did you like them? And which products have you been loving recently? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Dragon Fruit

Hi there! A few week’s ago I picked up Superdrug’s Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Dragon Fruit. I’ve tried a few different products from this collection – and I liked all of them. So how could I not give this one a try? 😉

This body cream is aimed at people with normal to dry skin. It promises to hydrate the skin and to defend it from environmental damage. This body cream contains a number of vitamins – E, A, B5, F and H – and coconut oil!

I’ve been using this body cream for a few days now, and I think it’s awesome! It’s easily absorbed, and it’s 100% non-sticky which makes it the perfect body cream for workday mornings (or whenever you’re in a hurry). I also believe that this body cream would be perfect for those warm summer days when you just can’t deal with heavy moisturisers. What else? I love the gorgeous fragrance – it’s warm, exotic and feminine. Yes, feminine. Not girly.

Superdrug’s Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Dragon Fruit is available as 475ml (the tub is huge!) for £2.99. 15% of the price of the product will go to Marie Curie – awesome stuff! This product is also 100% vegan and cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).
