It has been a while since I did an empties post, to be honest I fell out of love with them a little but now I’ve returned with one for you today. This is a bit of a mix from March, April and May as I must confess I collected a bag of stuff, got so fed up of it and recycled it all without posting about it so I had to start again…oops!
I did a review on the B.Pure
Micellar Water back in February (wow how times flies) read that here.
Back then I said I would re-buy it however I’ve recently been researching
micellar waters and generally speaking they’re not deemed that fantastic. I
think if I was going away to a festival or something I might re-buy it as it
does work well, but for my main skincare routine I think I will be skipping
micellar waters from now on. They appear to be quite good for make up removal but by no means should they just be used as your main cleanser. Seeing as I use a separate eye make up remover and then a cleanser I can’t really see the point in using a micellar water in between, therefore I’ll be leaving it out for now…having said that, the Bioderma hype intrigues me so I would like to try it just to see what all the fuss is about.
I’ve being using the Korres Jasmine Eye Make-Up Remover which I
purchased in the Feel Unique sale just after Christmas. I did like this however
at full price this product retails at £16 which I think is really expensive as for me
personally it didn’t do the job any better than The Body Shop Gentle Camomile
Eye Make-Up Remover which is half the price. It was nice, but I wouldn’t re-buy
First of the products I would re-buy is the John
Frieda Full Repair Full Body Shampoo! I do not know how I haven’t dedicated
a full review to this product as I think it is a great shampoo. My hair feels
so refreshed, soft, shiny and full when I use this, it is a pleasant experience
every time, a definite re-buy. The shampoo retails at £5.89 yet they’re often
on offer at 2 for £8 which makes them a very appealing £4 each, bargain!
I had the Soap
and Glory Glad Hair Day Shampoo lying around for a while so I thought it
was high time I finished it off. The reason it had taken so long is because
quite frankly I didn’t get on with it, however, since using it in the North
West compared to the Midlands I found it worked so much better on my
hair…maybe something is in the water up here. At £5.50 it isn’t too bad
however I do prefer the John Freida shampoo so I would always choose that over
this, having said that I do like the fact that this shampoo has no build up
and Glory Heel Genius was another product that I wanted to use up as I
didn’t really like it all too much. Sadly whereas the former Soap and Glory product I found my opinion
changed over time with this it did not. I was so glad to use this up as I
didn’t really enjoy the experience of using it, as for personally I like to moisturise my
feet and then wear cotton socks to lock in the moisture, however with this it just wasn’t possible as my feet
felt wet in the socks….nice! I now use a different product for this which has made the experience so much better, with that being The Body Shop Africa Honey and Beeswax Hand and Foot Butter which is actually my second tub. Again at £5.50 the price is more than reasonable
as you do get a good amount of product here, I just found that this product was
not for me.
