Hi there! November is behind us, and today’s post is about my November 2019 beauty trash. 🙂 I used quite a few single-use face masks. I didn’t keep the empty sachets, but if you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here. Onto the big empties!
1 Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash – I enjoyed this face wash, and I’d like to buy it again (once I’m at least halfway through my face wash stash).
2 Imperial Leather Relaxing Orchid & Ylang Ylang Infusions Bath Cream – this a lovely bath cream that I will buy again.
3 Jennifer Lopez Glow EdT – whilst I’m not a fan of the singer/actress J Lo, I’m enjoying quite a few of her fragrances. I can definitely see myself buying a big 100ml bottle of Glow again!
4 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – my holy grail foundation! And this is the original Pan Stik – not the stuff they sell now…
5 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract – this is a lovely body cream. It’s a limited edition, but I have one more tub!
6 Nourish Protect Cooling Toning Mist – this is a very good face mist. I enjoyed using it! I’ll buy it again if it’s on special.
7 Good Things Spa Manuka Honey Nourishing Body Wash – another amazing body wash that I’d like to pick up again!
8 Boots Time Delay Deep Cleansing Facial Exfoliator – this stuff was good but not great. It’s been discontinued now, but I wouldn’t have repurchased it anyway.
9 Maybelline Black Eyeliner – this is a very good eyeliner. It may have been the last of the bunch or I might have a few more (I used to buy these in bulk). I’d buy these eyeliners again.
10 Boots No 7 Devil’s Delight Nail Polish – this is a good quality polish. I might have a backup (from one of the countless half price Christmas gift sets I bought over the past few years). Anyhoo… I’m happy to have finished another colour polish!
11 Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream SPF15 – this day cream was very nice. I’m sure I’ll buy it again!
12 L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Detangling Conditioner – a very unspectacular conditioner. Repurchase? Nope!
13 Imperial Leather Moroccan Spa Orange Blossom & Argan Oil Spa Escape Bath Cream – another amazing bath cream that I’ll buy again soon!
14 Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Silky Lotion – I enjoyed this silky lotion very much. I have 2 more bottles (old and new packaging).
I’m pleased with what I finished last month – I like to finish big bottles as well as small items like nail polish and eyeliner. I think I’ve done well again! Which products have you finished lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for reading! 😊

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin E All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract. This is a limited charity edition (just like this one), and 15% of the price of the product will go to Marie Curie. This is awesome!
About the product itself… this is a body moisturiser that’s aimed at people with normal to dry skin. It contains a number of vitamins – E, A, B5, F and H, as well as coconut oil, horse chestnut extract, and moonstone extract.
I’ve been using this moisturiser for about 2 weeks now, and I’m blown away! The formula is something between Superdrug’s light Vitamin E moisturiser and a body butter. It has the best of both worlds – proper hydration, no stickiness. This makes it very suitable for all seasons, even for warm-to-hot summer days. 😍
The fragrance is very lovely too. I can’t describe it properly, but it’s a mix of pearls, powder and a hint of poppies. It’s gorgeous!
I’m very happy with this moisturiser, and I’d recommend it! Superdrug‘s Vitamin E All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract is suitable for vegans and certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). It’s available as 465ml for £3.49. Superdrug runs Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotions on their Vitamin E stuff most of the time – and that’s why I picked up 2 tubs for £5.24. 😊

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser. This product promises soft and smooth skin as well as all-day hydration. It contains shea butter, horse chestnut extract, and vitamins A, E, B5, F and H.
How does it work? This is an in-shower moisturiser. Apply it to your wet skin whilst you’re still in the shower – pretty much right after you’ve rinsed off your shower gel. Once you’ve massaged the moisturiser into your skin, it’s already time to rinse it off as well. Then pat your skin dry with a towel. Done!
I’ve used this product on and off for quite some time now, and I must say that I love it! This is the perfect moisturiser for when I’m in a hurry because it takes just 1 minute to moisturise and rinse. And the result is beautifully hydrated skin. The lovely fragrance (which is the same as the All Over Body Cream) is an added bonus!
Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser carries the Leaping Bunny logo. It’s vegan and certified cruelty-free!. The product is available as 250ml for £2.99. Superdrug runs Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price Promotions on their Vitamin E Skin Care line almost all the time. 😉

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).

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream for normal to dry skin. This cream contains all sorts of good ingredients, like vitamins E, A, B, F and H, as well as calcium and coconut oil. And it promises to defend the skin against environmental damage. If you read on, I’ll let you know if this cream is any good. 🙂
What can I say? This cream is fantastic. The fragrance is to die for. I’d describe it as warm, tropical and ‘high end’. This cream smells just gorgeous! I also love the formula because this cream isn’t sticky at all, and it doesn’t feel like product on my skin. This is just what I want on warm summer days!
I could spend hours raving about this product, but I won’t! All I’m going to say is… this body cream is one of my all-time favourites. If you’ve never tried it, you’ve been missing out!
Superdrug’s Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream is available as 475ml for £2.99 which is fantastic value! This product carries the Leaping Bunny logo – it’s cruelty-free and suitable for vegans!

Hi there! Not too long ago I bought Superdrug’s Vitamin E Skin Care Leave-On Moisture Mask for the first time. This mask is a serum-like gel which is packed with vitamins (E, A, B, F, H) and other goodies like horse chestnut extract and jojoba oil.
You’re supposed to apply the mask after you’ve cleansed your face, and to leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes. Then you’re supposed to either massage the excess product into your skin, or remove it with a cotton wool pad. I’ve been using this mask for a few weeks now – but not as directed. 😉 Read on, I’ll tell you more!
When I used the mask for the first time, I found the strong coconut fragrance too overwhelming. I thought I’d never be able to use this mask on a weekly basis. But fortunately the fragrance didn’t linger for too long. And once the fragrance had evaporated, I took a closer look at the product – and my face.
What happened? Well, first of all I loved the way my skin looked. I have dry and moody skin, and on top of that I also have eczema. But this mask made my skin look all plump and supple – within minutes! And this is when I knew the mask and I would be friends. 🙂
I think it’s remarkable how I went from “Ugh, coconuts!” to “Wow, this is magic!” in about 10 minutes. I rarely change my mind about products – certainly not within minutes. But I’m glad I gave this mask a chance. Otherwise I would have missed out. Big time!
How do I use this mask? I’ve never been wasteful with products. And I don’t see why I should apply too much product when I’d have to wipe off the excess or make an effort to massage it into my skin after a few minutes. So what do I do now? Once a week I use this mask as a night cream. I apply a generous (but not wasteful) amount of product to my face before I go to bed. And when I get up in the morning, my skin feels soft and supple, and it looks nourished. I love it!
I would definitely recommend this face mask to everyone. It’s awesome, it’s cheap, and it even helps with dry patches. If it didn’t smell of coconuts, this mask would be my Number 1 favourite product this month.
Superdrug’s Vitamin E Skin Care Leave-On Moisture Mask is available as 100ml for £2.99. But Superdrug runs buy one get second half price promotions on its Vitamin E products almost all the time. 🙂
