These are my favourite posts to read and I get quite excited when I finish a product, I still get a sense of achievement (lame I know). I did use up quite a few miniatures last month as I went on holiday and didn’t bring the empties back with me. If you want to see what I took with me I did a Travel Skincare post.
Superfacialist Daily Brightening Cleanser* 150ml for £7.99. This took me ages to use up and I really liked it right from the first use. It was effective at taking my makeup off and it was gentle too. I would purchase this and will keep an eye out for it being on offer in Boots.
Garnier Fresh Essential Eye Makeup Remover 150ml for £1.56. I always have a bottle of this in my stash. It is a really good eye makeup remover and I can’t recommend it enough. Love it.
Vaseline Essential Moisture Cocca Radiant 200ml for £1.49. This was a very hydrating body lotion. I used it mostly on my legs as they get really dry. It has a lovely scent to it and I enjoyed using it. I would repurchase.
Sanctuary Body Wash 250ml for £5.50. This was part of a Christmas gift set. It was a nice body was but nothing too special. I won’t be rushing out to buy it again.
Hydraluron 30ml for £24.99. My beloved hydraluron, I am totally addicted to this serum and will be repurchasing it as soon as I can. I have written a blog post on it here if you want to see why I love it so. Oh & it is worth every single penny.
Origins Make a Difference Cleanser 150ml £20.00. I have a smaller bottle as it was part of a Make a Difference Set. I absolutely love the moisturiser from this set and use that everyday but this cleanser isn’t all that and didn’t 100% enjoy it. I won’t repurchase it.
Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss £9. I found this to be terribly sticky and it wore off my lips really unevenly. I won’t repurchase this.
L’Occitane Verbena Shampoo – This was a hotel sample and I loved using it, it smells like spring days and more importantly left my hair feeling soft and clean. I am tempted to buy the full size.
Ojon Dry Recovery Hydrating Conditioner – I think I’m the only person who doesn’t like this. I was excited to try it and bought a travel set. This conditioner left my hair feeling dry and not hydrated at all, it also smelt odd too. Not a fan of this.
Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and Conditioner - I used these whilst away in London for a week, they are great sized minis and my hair loves them. They leave it glossy and manageable I am going to buy the whole range.
Elemis Aromazing Shampoo – Another hotel mini, I have used a couple of these over the past few months and I really like Elemis haircare. I have a few more of these to use up and I am saving them as I really enjoy them and my hair is left looking healthy and I can go 3 days without washing it after using this. That is a big plus.
Davines Melu Anti Breakage Shampoo – Not really enough product in these sachets to tell you if its anti breakage but it was a nice enough shampoo and it smells very luxurious.
Melvita Rose Micellar Toner – I adore Melvita Skincare and this was also part of a travel set I bought. It smells of spring and very botanical it is also Organic and very gentle on my face. I will repurchase the full size of it.
Caudalie Makeup Remover Cleansing Water – I took this to San Francisco with me and I did like it but not sure I would repurchase the full size, I am undecided. It did the job but I think I prefer the Melvita one.
FCUK Body Wash – Smells amazing and left my skin soft. This was part of a Christmas set.
L’Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream – This came in a beauty box and I have used it previously and bloody love it. It is quite a thick moisturiser but not too heavy. It leaves my skin so soft. I adore the scent it reminds me of long summer evenings, it’s so fresh. I would repurchase this.
B. Radiant Rejuvenating Serum – I like using serums especially at night, this was a free sample from a B. Pure stand in Superdrug. It was very nice and hydrating and non greasy. I am not sure how radiant it left my skin but I did like it and would try more from this range.
