My Summer Empties
I always use a variety of skincare and haircare favourites, and rarely stick to the same products. However, there are now a few exceptions to this rule!
So straight in with my favourites and things i will re-purchase;
Clains Moisture Rich Body Lotion - this was with one of those gift with purchases, and it was so great! My skin is left soft, nourished and the smell is lovely. Not too much of shea butter, but fresh! This tube is actually my 3rd this year!
Neautrogena Visibly clear pink grapefruit daily scrub - I've bought this regular for about 4 years now, and it keeps my skin spot free. I sometimes use this or the daily wash. I have no idea why, but the pink grapefruit seems to connect well with my skin!
Dr Paw Paw - I've never used this products before, but i've heard so many great things. When i was gifted this back in June by Catalyst PR I was super happy. I used it immediately and have just used it up! I will be re-buying asap!
Benefit Roller Liner - I have re-purchased this in brown now, as the black was a little harsh for natural summer look i have been rocking. THe liner is so easy to apply, the colour pay off last's all day. I will say there is a slight transfer with my sweaty summer eyes, but all good mostly!
Clarins Tonic Bath& Shower Concentrate - Actually never know whether this is a shower product, but i have used it as that, since getting it with the summer GWP In The Frow collab! The smell is so fresh and not over powering. Clarins are by far my favourite brand right now!
Sancturary Wet Skin Moisture Miracle - I got a sample gifted by Sanctuary and instantly loved it! I recently went on holiday, and so in order to keep my skin supple and keep my tan, I've been using this brilliant product!
L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil - The smell is SO delicious! I love using it in shower first, then smell lingers a while in there, and around upstairs! Mmm! I shall definitely have a trip to L'Occitane soon as i used this way back in May!
Percy & Reed Wonder Overnight Recovery - This is a miracle in a tube! My hair feels like silk when i use it, and i have been and got myself the full size. This little beauty was in the M&S advent calendar and was a great find!
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish - I mean I've lost count of how many of these I've been through! It is just my no1 for when my skin needs a pick me up!
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm - I didn't believe the hype but wish i had sooner! This is a delight and can be used, as a primer, whicbi have been or a overnight mask or mixed with base products. I have been and got myself a full size, and will never be without this now!
Clarins One Step facial cleanser - This brightened my skin so great. I will be switching to this once i've used up my currently micellar by Garnier. Although I do use both right now, so maybe thats my great combo for skin! Anyhow, this smells great, I used it first on holiday, and it just left my skin feeling& looking great!
Phillip Kingsley Moisture Balancing Conditioner Coconut Breeze scent - My hair feels like it should be in a hair advert with this! I got the TSV on QVC in May, and it came with the shampoo, conditioner, a spritz and the famous Elasticizer. I actually didn't save the elasticizer but i've been through 3 this year alone after discovering it last year! Get on it!
The ok products that i wouldn't rush out for, but as a GWP are ok..
Clarins Extra Firming moisturiser - As its more of an anti wrinkle product it was ok. I have another of these so will use it up, but i prefer the overnight cream.
The Body Shop peppermint scrub ltd ed - The smell is my favourite, but the scrub is too crumbly. I think its made of sugar, and it just gets too sticky.
Not great products that i actually didn't bother to use up are...
L'oreal lip stain - My goodness it didn't even stain my lips much of a colour, but then i remove the tint, and my lips were neon pink. NEON PINK! I mean i love neon pink, but nahhhh. Would not recommend at all. I loved their balms a few summers ago too!
OK i did not win at this, this year! So i'll just list my advent calendar haul so far this week down below! Lots of good things, lot...
My friend saud i MUST try this new Avon mascara, so she ordered me some! It arrived super fast, on Weds and when i tried it out on Thursday ...
John Lewis is a Lancome strobe cream, with a voucher for free foundation sample at counters. I could do with these sort of higlighters, ...
How nice is a cake day, and especially when the rain pours outside, like last Saturday, so i treated me and Mum to a slice and coffee in ...
