Time for a another look at products that have (and haven’t) been rocking my world!
A mini bottle which I think I must have picked up at a car boot sale. I think Mango is one of my all time favourite Body Shop ‘flavours’. Fruity and fabulous. Definite repurchase.
Just realised I’ve mis-typed on the photograph – it should read ‘Nectarine’ not nectar. Anyway, this was a free sample sent in a Jo Malone order, and I enjoyed using it, though there are other scents I prefer, so I don’t think I’d be buying a full-size one.
It’s a long time since I’ve disliked a product as much as I disliked this one. The only good thing about it was the scent, which was Cocoa Butter. The spray idea was hopeless – unless you squirted it into your hand and then applied (thus negating the whole USP of the product!), you ended up with a fine mist of body lotion all over your bathroom/bedroom. Not good. And as for the product itself, it seemed to have absolutely no moisturising qualities at all and left my skin in exactly the same condition as it was before use. Utterly hopeless. So much so that I didn’t finish it.
I love the scent of Lily of the Valley (how very ‘old lady’ of me), and this bath gel was fab. The scent didn’t last on my body, though, and it wasn’t great at producing masses of bubbles, for the price. I love the matching body lotion, but I probably wouldn’t buy the bath gel again.
It’s rare that I have nothing to say, but nothing is exactly what I’ve got to say about this product. It was just blah. I don’t remember anything about it and I only finished it last week. Obviously not a hit.
This came as part of a free gift with a magazine subscription, and although it conditioned perfectly adequately, it’s the same complaint I always have with organic products – it just didn’t smell of anything. Surely it’s not impossible to make organic beauty products smell nice? I wouldn’t repurchase, just because of the aroma thing: I like my hair to smell nice, I’m afraid.
Another month, another body butter. This one was nice, quite subtle. Great texture. Repurchase? Possibly, if it was on offer.
Finally this month, another Simple Eye Make Up Remover bites the dust. I’ve written before about my love for this product, and a replacement is already in use.
So what about you? Have you found any amazing products you can’t live without recently? Or had any epic fails? I’d love to know.
