I’ve quite a few empty products this time, a bit more than my first empty post of the year. Let’s start with skin care. I have used up another Camomile Sumptuous cleansing butter* from The Body Shop, I’m already using another tub. I’m also already half way through another bottle of the Vichy Pureté Thermale Refreshing toner*, love it. I’ve also quite a few samples of skin care, hair care & body care products from Jason, I didn’t really enjoy these so I won’t be rushing out to purchase any full sizes. Now for moisturisers! I’ve finished the Avene Skin Recovery cream, love this stuff but I do go through stages with it, I’ve no doubt I’ll repurchase at some point. I’ve a mostly full Vichy Normaderm Hydrating Care*, I just didn’t get on with this sadly, I’ve done a review post on a few of the Normaderm products. The 3rd moisturiser is the Aloe Soothing Moisture Lotion* SPF15, this was a good moisturiser, but I need something a bit more hydrating. I’ve a sample of the Elemis skin clear mattifying moisturiser. I’m not a fan of this, it’s only half used, my skin didn’t like it at all. From Montague Juenesse I tried the 7th Heaven Blemish Mud mask. Sadly this is one of the few masks from Montague Juenesse that I don’t enjoy. I have an empty Nivea Express Hydration Primer*, my husband ended up using most of this, another thing that didn’t agree with my skin. I tested out a Manuka Doctor Bee Venom & Manuka Honey Skincare trial set, with a rejuvenating face mask, age defying serum and restoring night cream. I will definitely be investigating the rejuvenating face mask, I wasn’t fussed with the other two. I’ve an empty tub of the Rodial Glamoxy 15% Fruit Acid Exfoliating Pads, I have a review on these here. I prefer my Clarins Gentle Exfoliator. For Makeup I have a dried up Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof kohl liner*, I may repurchase in future once I used up the rest of my black liners. I also have a dried up Maybelline Color Tattoo* in Eternal Gold, really did not use this often enough before it entirely.
Now for hair care and body care. We’ll start with the hair care samples. I tried out and loved the Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter*, I will definitely check this out again in future. I’ve a L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil*, I was a bit underwhelmed by this, I’ve other hair oils I prefer. I’ve a Caring Shine Conditioner that was left over from a hair dying kit, I tend to bring these with me when I travel, handy hair mask. I have a trial size of the Giovanni Smooth As Silk Deep Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner. I’ve done a full review of them, I’m not a fan. Two hair styling products from VO5, the plump it up amplifying blow dry lotion* and the give me texture tousled style spray*. I wasn’t a fan of either of these, I just couldn’t get them to work for my hair. I did manage to finish the plump it up, but only finished half of the give me texture. I completely finished a pot of Steam Cream* moisturiser. I love this stuff and I will one day buy a pot, really love the scent and how much it hydrated my skin. From Caudalíe Thé Des Vignes Shower Gel*, I really enjoyed this. It has a floral musky scent that lingers on the skin, I thoroughly enjoyed getting wafts of the scent throughout my day. Will likely buy a full size of this in future. I’ve finished the Aveeno Skin Relief Restore & Protect hand cream The last body product is the Sanctuary Body Butter* travel size moisturiser. I love Sanctuary’s various body lotions and creams and this is no exception. I love to take these with me when I travel, it’s a little touch of luxury on the go.
