It’s been a while since I did one of these posts and technically they’re not all from October. I used some of these up in September, however I’ve had to wait until now to have five items to photograph.
First off I have yet another can of the Batiste Dry Shampoo, I seem to get
through a can of this about once a month…is that too much?! It was in the
shade Cherry as you can see which I have decided I will not buy again as I
didn’t like the smell that much. I’ve already re-purchased a can of the ‘lace’
version for £2.50 as I prefer this much more.
I have also finally finished a bottle of the Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser, which I
seem to have had for such a long time. To be honest I didn’t get on with this
that well, I found it made my skin quite greasy, which is such a shame as I
quite like the Simple brand. This product retails at £3.79 for the 100ml which
is pretty superb value.
Next up is a No7
Stay Perfect Primer which was a lovely peach colour. I found it to be very
nice to use, with it working pretty well to keep my make-up in place during the
day. I was sad to have this run out on me, luckily I had a GOSH primer to fall
back on. I probably would buy the No7 one again in the future as I found it
worked well for me. It retails at £12.50 which isn’t too bad in my opinion as
it lasted me such a long time.
I was very glad to see the back of the Garnier Youthful Radiance EyeCream as it is not a cruelty free brand, plus, I have no idea why I ever
got this in the first place as I think it was probably aimed at older skin. I
can’t say that this did anything for me, it didn’t particularly make my skin
feel refreshed or anything, in fact I think I celebrated on twitter once this
was empty! The one positive thing I can say is that it was nice to use before I
put my concealer on in the morning. This retails at £10 which in my opinion is
quite expensive for what it did, or in this case didn’t do.
Lastly is a product that I love and hate at the same time, it is the Soap and Glory Clean on Me Shower Gel.
I quite like the Soap and Glory brand, I loved their unique packaging when I
first discovered it, however the novelty has worn off a little yet I still find
myself having a nose at it all in Boots now and again. Now, this product is
lovely to use, I can’t say that it is fantastic but it does the job well. My
only gripe with it is the packaging style, I really do not like ‘pump’
dispenser bottles for the shower. I find them so difficult to use, I would much
prefer a squeeze bottle to be honest. It does however last a long time folks
and for £5.50 it is a bargain….just change the packaging Soap and Glory!
Have any of you ever used any of these products?
Maybe I’m being a little picky with the Clean on Me Shower Gel…
