A mixed bag of empties this month. Some products I’ve loved, some not so much. One of my favourite perfumes. Some products I’ve had in the drawer for ages, some I’ve used pretty much as soon as I got them.
Davines Authentic Moisturising Balm – Oops, I originally got this last year in a Joliebox (now called Birchbox). It’s a multi-purpose balm that can be used as a cleanser, body treatment and hair mask. I tried all three of those uses but actually my favourite use for it was as a shaving balm.
Mandara Spa Tropical Blooms Softening Body Cream – This smells amazing, I got it in a set at Christmas. Jasmine and ylang ylang, such a classic combination. It left my skin feeling smooooooth.
Natural Honey Body Milk – This came in the December Joliebox beauty box. It’s a light body lotion with a subtle scent that really reminds me of The Body Shop cocoa butter that I used when I was a teenager.
YSL Saharienne – I adore this perfume. It is perfect for summer. It smells of sandy beaches, white flowers, a citrus tang. Love love love it.
L’Oreal Elvive Full Restore 5 Mask – This was nice enough but didn’t do anything amazing. It was a sample sachet but it didn’t excite me enough go out and buy it.
Pantene Repair & Protect Shampoo – Another sample sachet. This was a nice shampoo with a really rich lather but I have a feeling that if I used it long-term it might make my hair feel a bit heavy.
Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Youth Enhancing Serum – I got a few of these sample sachets through the post, every week I seemed to receive another one! I like the serum for the face, I’m not keen on the one for the eyes though. I’ve got some more of them but I will give them to my friend.
Lush Grass Shower Gel – This little sample pot was given to my fiancé when he bought me some bath bombs while he was in France. They must have thought the bath bombs were for him as this shower gel has such a strong, masculine scent! It’s lovely, if you’re a man!
B/Attitude Body Soufflé – Originally when I received this in the May Birchbox I thought it smelled wonderful. By the time I finished the tub I was sick of it! The scent was so rich that it became sickly and the cream itself was really slow to sink in.
Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm – I really like this cleanser, just not the price tag. You can read my review here.
Moa The Green Balm – Another cleanser I like. You can read my review here.
VitaBella Anti Aging Face Mask – I got this in the July Birchbox and used it last weekend in preparation for my friend’s hen do. You can read my review here.
Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping Facial Hydrator – Like the B/Attitude Body Soufflé I received this in the May Birchbox. It smells so nice and is full of natural ingredients, but my skin didn’t love it.
