Hello, its me… its been a while right? I apologise for the inconsistent posts these past few weeks, alas my dissertation d-day is getting closer and closer so there maybe days when I won’t be able to post but, fear not! I will try my best 🙂
Its been a while since I did a haul on this blog but, they are my favourite posts to do. So what did I get?
Carex honey hand wash– £0.90
Not the most exciting product but one of my absolute essentials to have around my room. I love the scent of this hand wash and the way that it feels on my hands,super soft and moisturizing plus the scent is super comforting almost like Lush’s “honey I washed the kids” (my favourite soap bar from Lush). I really like the fact that it kills 99.9% of bacteria, something not all handwashes have, my mum always said that this was key when looking at any sort of cleaning product.
Loreal Elvive Extraordinary clay dry shampoo: – (bought for) £2.66
Recently I have been trying to wash my hair every other day, after hearing the benefits. I found that washing my hair every other day my ends are super soft, moisturized and shiny but my roots start to get greasy. I personally have never properly tried to use a dry shampoo before as, embarrassing as it is… I don’t know how…
Beautiful movement cosmetics Mascara 8ml – £12.00
Not really a purchase, but I got this mascara from a magazine this month, I believe it was the ‘healthy’ magazine? I could be wrong. I have never heard of this company before and was drawn by the simple design and logo. I had run out of my benefit’s tinted mascara which I really liked and considered purchasing a full size, but I decided to try something new.
According to the website the cosmetics are vegan, animal cruelty free and contains minerals. Excited to review it soon!
Yves Rocher Elixir 7.9 Eye cream 15ml
Originally: £26.00 bought for: £13.50
It seems that this month I was running out of a lot of things, shampoos, eye-cream and mascaras etc. I previously bought this eye cream for my mum for christmas and she has had nothing but positive things to say about this eye cream. I must admit that eye creams are a little difficult, when it comes to seeing if they really work because they take time. Hopefully this lives up to all the great reviews.
Yves Rocher Riche Creme Beauty Elixir of Oil 30ml
Original: £32. Bought for: £13.20
This oil has been on my wishlist for a while since I received one of their monthly pamphlets. The way they described it was so luxurious and even managed to persuade someone who was reluctant to use oil on their face to buy it, so good job. Plus I managed to get it at a cheaper price. Will do a full review of this oil very soon.
Yves Rocher Dark spot perfector serum 30ml.
Original: £37.80 Bought for: FREE
This product was one of their free gifts that was up for grabs this February on their site. I have yet to try any of their Zero Default range as don’t really have any dark-spots, however, I found that this product was good at removing acne scaring which I have a few. The bottle is iridescent, which you can’t really tell by the picture but it pearl like. I am going to try to use this for a month and see if my scaring gets any better and kind of want to try to use it in a different way… but I will update you soon about this and the progress.
Tresemme Specialst Oleo Radiance. Illumnates, lightweight and healthiness shampoo 250ml – £3.00
Finally, while shopping down the hair section of ASDA I saw that Tresemme had released a new range of haircare. As I was just about running out of my Aussie shampoo I decided to give this a try. The word that really drew me to choosing this product was “light weight” my hair is relatively fine and therefore is constantly hugging my face if I use products that are too rich/heavy. The product comes out like a golden jelly and smells so good however, I found that my hair is still quite dry after using it.
