Recently Recycled #1

Remember those monthly empties I used to do for the last two years? Those posts have been gone for a while now as to be honest with you all I just lost a little bit of interest in writing them. I also found that I quite simply couldn’t manage to use up enough products within a month which would justify dedicating an entire post to them therefore for a while I decided to put those types of posts to the back of my mind. Fast forward a few months I now have a few skincare items which I have worked my way through therefore I thought it would be nice to do a quick summary of each of them before they finally make it into the recycling bin.

The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water has been one of my favourite products over the last few months or so with it being quite simply a cheaper alternative to the rather popular Bioderma Micellar Water. I can’t really say that much about this other than I use it to remove my eye make up of an evening whereby it works pretty darn well. Water based make up removers such as these are perfect for me when it comes to removing my eye make up as creams and balms around the eye area make me feel a little funny.

It has been a while since I mentioned the Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm* which was kindly sent to me roughly one year ago. This was my first experience in using a balm type cleanser and at first I was unsure just how well it would work for me considering my skin type can be prone to oiliness however my concerns were easily put to bed as this cleanser worked perfectly. I found this to be a perfect pre-cleanse whereby it would lift the bulk of my make up from my face as well as providing mild ex-foliation. If you’re looking for a nice gentle cleansing balm then I really couldn’t recommend the Balance Me offering enough, it is lovely!

I’ve finished off a Soap and Glory Girligo Body Moisturising Mist before but seemed to have another one floating around. Again my general view of this particular product hasn’t really changed from my original thoughts back in December a few years ago therefore I’m quite glad that this has finally been finished off despite it being an OK product. I just hope that there isn’t another one lurking around somewhere.


Hydraluron is a rather odd product in that I know plenty of people have seen no results after using this at all however for myself I have to say that I do notice a difference when I use this, despite that difference not being on a whole dramatic. It is a product that I have since repurchased although I’m probably going to be saving this for later on in the year when my skin becomes a lot more dehydrated.


The final product that I have finished up is the Ali Mac Camellia Cleansing Melt* which I reviewed back in July last year. First and foremost I’m actually a little sad to have used this cleansing balm up as it turned out to be a product that I really enjoyed using. My reason for this is that it was so incredibly soft to use on my skin as it melted so quickly and smelt incredible all whilst removing my make up perfectly! If you’re not a fan of citrus scents then you should probably skip this however I personally love them which is just one factor that made this product so incredibly enjoyable to use.
