I’ve been desperately trying to use up as many products as I can before moving in Jan, so this is a bumper post of empties. Strap on your seatbelts, and here we go!
Loved this gorgeous-smelling body oil, and unlike some, it didn’t leave my skin horribly greasy for ages afterwards. Repurchase? Possibly, when I’m next feeling well-off.
This came in a starter Jo Malone skincare set I was given for Christmas last year, and only used occasionally as a very special treat. I loved this product, particularly when mixed with the Jo Malone face creams for an extra moisture boost. Just been on the website to check the price of a full-size one, and am a little disappointed to find that it’s been discontinued. So I guess that’ll be a no to a repurchase, then!
A great little mascara for £1.99, that gives many of the pricier brands a run for their money. As soon as I’ve used up my magazine freebie mascaras, of which I seem to have amassed rather a lot, I’ll be popping into Superdrug for another of these.
I reviewed the matching night cream to this in this post, and was equally impressed by this day one, for the price (under a tenner full size). The only disappointment is the SPF of only 15, so it would only be a winter option for me, I’m afraid. That said, I fully intend to repurchase this next time I need a winter daytime moisturiser.
Ah, Jo, how do I love you? Let me count the ways. I bought myself this set duty free on a plane ages ago – it was my first introduction to Jo Malone’s scents, and I’ve been a firm convert ever since. I wouldn’t repurchase this particular set, however, as there a couple of fragrances in there that don’t really suit me, but I’d highly recommend this as a great way to discover some fabulous scents that will no doubt become firm favourites.
Another mini tube of this product, which I reviewed here. Must say this one was less runny, but I’m still not a fan of the smell.
Found this at the back of the bathroom cupboard during my pre-move declutter. Must’ve been there for a loooooonnnnggg time. It was OK, but I like a bit more of a sensory boost in the shower in the morning, and this was just a bit blah in the smell department.
Another mini tube, and I really liked this product. But no SPF, so not for me, I’m afraid, particularly not at £27 for a full size one!
Yet another mini tube. Absolutely LOVED this night cream – it felt really rich and I could almost feel the good it was doing my skin when I used it. Great for dry skin, particularly in winter. Repurchase? Yes.
Having read so much about this product, I was really keen to try it, and this sample sized product lasted me for almost a fortnight. It’s very off-putting in the tube – it looked far too dark a shade for me, but amazingly, it blends in really easily and becomes almost translucent on the skin. It claims to leave skin looking ‘dewy and flawless’ and whilst I wouldn’t concur fully with that, it certainly made my skin look better than it does without any make-up.
The main drawback for me (other than the price – £47 full size) was that once applied, I had to wait ages for it to stop feeling tacky before doing the rest of my make-up. Like, a good six or seven minutes. Not good. So, I’m glad I tried it, but it certainly wasn’t miracle enough for me to even consider spending £47 on it!
And that’s it! If you’ve managed to make it to the end, very well done! Have you got any beauty hits and misses to share with me?
