September 2013 Empties

September 2013 Empties

I know it isn’t the end of September yet but I did a big clear out & couldn’t leave this bag of empties so I took photos and put them all in the bin!

Chanel Mousse Douceur Cleanser – I had used this for quite a few years and I do like it. But I think my skin has changed over the past year and this no longer does what I need. I have found quite a few new cleansers that I think are better for my skin.

Gliss Hair Repair Liquid Silk Express Hair Conditioner – This bottle lasted me a good year and I used it most times I washed my hair. This is a leave in conditioner and I sprayed it on to towel dried hair. This gave my hair a nice glossy smooth look. I would re purchase.

Champneys Spa Treatment Skin Comforting Bath Milk – This left my skin so soft after a bath, It was lovely and luxurious. I received it as a gift set with a few other products and have enjoyed them all. This is something I would repurchase.

Dalton House Hand Soap – I counted down the days until this finishes. I have 4 toilets in my house & this has been in the toilet we use the least and has taken the longest time to use up. I thought this smelt sickly sweet and wasn’t the nicest hand wash. I wouldn’t repurchase & am thrilled to finally be throwing it away.

balance Me Super Toning Body Wash – I bought quite a few Glamour magazines the other month so I could get back ups of this. I really like it, it is very gentle and I like to us it when I shave my legs as it leaves them very smooth. It smells great too. Love it!

Caudalie Lip Conditioner – Even smelling this now it reminds me of holiday. I used this on the flight to keep my lips in tip top condition and I have had it sat on my desk for a couple of months too. I like the rich creamy formula. It smells light & summery. I would buy this again as It worked wonders at hydrating my lips.

Phil Smith Dry Shampoo* – I carried this can in my handbag and used it to give my hair volume and keep it looking fresh. It didn’t last the longest time but it did a good job & would repurchase. It didn’t leave too much white cast on my hair (I have deep dark brown hair) I just brushed it through after I’d sprayed it and that did the trick.

Elnett Satin Classic Strength Hairspray - Another handy sized can that I had in my handbag. Elnett just works. No fuss no frills. I always repurchase this.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir – This came in a Caudalie Travel Set I bought to take on holiday. Like the lip conditioner I used this mostly on the plane. I have had a full size of this last year and was never too sure if I would re purchase. I am not 100% a fan of this. I like to use it and find it refreshing and it does calm my skin but think there must be something that smells better and that has more skin benefits. I do like this smaller bottle but once again I am not sure if I would re purchase.

Pixi Vitamin Liquid – This was a really good serum and I used it as a three month intensive treatment, it is full of anti oxidents and vitamin c so it gave my skin a real boost. I thought my skin  looked brighter and my redness was a lot calmer after using it. If my skin needs it I would buy this again as I really liked it.

Garnier Soothing 2 in 1 Makeup Remover - I use one of these up at least once a month. I like it to take off my makeup before cleansing with a face cloth. I like this it is good at removing even waterproof makeup and it is not too greasy. I always have a couple of backups.

Have you used any of these products before? Did you enjoy using them?

    I feel like I’m not taking enough advantage of London. But I certainly intend to start doing it from now on!

    Your blog is really cute and I love your reviews

    Love, When You Dream Big x

  5. I’m going to try that dry shampoo, I usually just buy what is on offer but I’m not always happy with them. I always nearly pick up the Gliss conditioner too but get distracted by something else!

  6. I would be interested in that Phil Smith dry shampoo, that Batiste stuff makes my hair look grey
