It seems that in my toing and froing from Scotland these past few months I have forgotten to do an empties post and I have accumulated an unhealthy amount of rubbish in my dressing room. My husband is threatening to throw away my bag of rubbish – who is the crazy one?? I thought it best to break this post up into two parts for fear of boring you with too long a post.
Tresemme Split Remedy Leave in Treatment £5.69 for 125ml. I can’t remember where I bought this from but It was either Home Bargains or the poundshop & I really liked it. It lasted me forever and I used it most times I washed my hair. It is a leave in treatment but it doesn’t leave your hair greasy and it’s quite lightweight. I am on a mission to find it for a bargain price as I know I didn’t pay full price for it. I would highly recommend this.
Percy and Reed Dry Conditioner Full size is £12 for 150ml – This was a freebie with Glamour magazine a couple of months ago and I never knew such a thing as a dry conditioner existed. This has been a God send since having a fringe cut in I use it to freshen it up as I don’t wash my hair everyday but my fringe looks flat and a little greasy quickly so this has been fab to spray in and makes it look clean and gives it a little volume. Loved it.
Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo £1.75 for 250ml – I have used a few of these and really like it. I buy them from the poundshop, such a bargain hunter I am. This shampoo leaves my hair looking glossy and isn’t too flyaway after. I will always repurchase it if I see it for £1. Naked Bounce Curl Defining Shampoo* £3.98 for 250ml – I have naturally curly hair so I use this when I am not going to straighten it or when I want my curls to be more defined and it just works! It lasts ages and does a great job. Thumbs up and I would purchase it.
Garnier Soothing 2 in 1 Makeup Remover £2.99 for 200ml – I have used up two bottles of this. It’s my go to makeup remover, I remove the bulk of my makeup with this then I do a proper cleanse. I normally buy these when they are either 3 for 2 or 2 for £4. They are gentle and alcohol free and I will forever repurchase it! Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Gentle Cleanser £8.99 for 95ml – I bought this from The Garden Pharmacy in Covent Garden (love it in there). I found this cleanser really gentle on my skin and it was really soothing I have written a blog post on it here if you’d like to read it. I am going to America in June and I want to buy a few more products from the Yes to Cucumber range as my skin seems to like the calming effects of the cucumber and aloe vera.
Dr Andrew Weil for Origins Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Face Cream £46.00 for 50ml – To say I love this is an understatement and I am so sad that it’s come to an end I scraped every last bit out the jar. It is such an intense overnight cream. I found it very calming and it helped with breakouts. The smallest amount warmed up between your fingers would be enough to moisturise my whole face. It is targeted at people who suffer from redness and that is me to a T, I will be repurchasing this for sure. It is well worth the price tag.
Liz Earl Cleanse and Polish £14.75 for 100ml – I have a sample size that I got in a Latest in Beauty Box a while ago. I do enjoy this but have never kept up religiously using it so can never tell if its 100% working. I do like it and I like the botanical smell and using a hot cloth is such a nice way to remove makeup & dirt. I think I would repurchase a full size but only if I had a voucher (if that makes sense).
Have you used any of the products in this post – I’d love to know what you thought of them. I have about 8 other empties so I’m going to split March & April into 2 posts. Look put for part 2.
