There seems to be a lot this month but that’s due to a few almost empties from May. I seem to be having a bit of a fail day at work, everything that could go wrong seemed too. Luckily for me nothings broken and programs can be fixed and tools reset. If only the brain could be turned off, restarted and the alarms go away that easily. Now that I have chance to breathe and collect my thoughts let’s get down to the empties.
Finished Em – Meh! Sums It Up
Loreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution 200 ml £4.99
It’s not so much indicative of this Micellar solution so much as having gone off all of them. Great for fixing make up mishaps but otherwise I just don’t trust them to truly get my skin clean. This one I’ve had a while, maybe that’s why it seems to react with my eyes, it didn’t when I first bought it. I just feel like I know I still have makeup and ickyness left on my skin. I want to be lazy but only if it still does the job. In the bin it finally goes, give me an oil cleanser any day.
Loreal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Conditioner 400 ml £3.99
I guess it helps when you buy a conditioner to properly read what it says on the bottle. I saw fragile hair but I think it means thin or limp hair. Not really meant for me then, bought when I ran out and couldn’t get to a better shop. It smells nice and didn’t leave residue which I find happens all too often so that’s a positive.
N07 Completly Quenched Moisturising Body Lotion 200 ml £10.50
This smells very much like every N07 product which isn’t a bad thing. This is moisturing and nice but too thick and takes too much effort to get it to soak in. I basically used this up as an after shower body lotion. Didn’t keep my skin hydrated for long enough, I do have very dry skin.
It’s A Mans World
From the mouth of the man of the house!
The Body Shop Kistna Hair & Body Wash 200 ml £6
Great as shampoo but if left on too long almost feels sticky. Not as great as the other Body Shop one named Arber but prefer if when I’m cleaning my beard. It doesn’t dry the hair out so it still feels clean but soft.
Botanics Men’s Face Scrub 120 ml £3.99
This is a complete bargain, this was much nicer that the King Of Shaves one I had that was too abrasive. This feels like it helped with my skin as well as my skin beneath my beard. It’s meant to soften stubble but didn’t do this as much as I’d liked. I have found a different one I like more though.
Empty To The Last Drop
Ren Clear Calm 3 150 ml £18
This is for me what a luxury cleanser should feel like. This was a splurge for me when I go it and I enjoyed using it every time. This made mornings that little bit more bearable. There are very few clay based cleansers and this was just lovely I hold other cleansers up to this one. In the future I may repurchase but for me it’s a lot to spend on a cleanser.
Lee Stafford Flat Iron Protection Shine Mist 200 ml £5.99
This is one of many travel bottles of this stuff I’ve bought and I’ll likely buy another if only for travel. I love the scent and it does keep my hair soft while using Ghd’s. I’d use this if I’m straightening after I’ve left my hair to naturally dry. I’ve found a good one from BlowPro to blow dry my hair with instead though. Have been using this for donkeys years.
BlowPro Damage Control Conditioning Mask £235 ml £9.99
I am in love with this hair mask. It’s not cheap and I probably used it too much to begin with as it’s a protein mask which builds the strength of the hair up. I could have made this a once a week treat and when I get chance to repurchase it I intend too. My hair is over dyed, dried, thick and a pain. This made it manageable where I could get a brush through it easily without bit knots the day after if I left it to dry. Smells similar to the Toni & Guy Nourish hair mask but works better for me.
The Body Shop Cranberry Body Polish 200 ml £10
I know you can’t get this anymore but it’s available in strawberry still. I prefer the strawberry but this was a nice Christmas edition. I seemed to forget about it not just this but all scrubs. Kinda went off them for a while, maybe laziness I’m not sure. These with the seeds in I do like to get a proper scrub going. I have psoriasis so this is great for those extra dry areas you want to itch but don’t want to do damage to. Great for before shaving but does leave the seeds in the bottom of the bath tub.
