Looks like I spend a lot of time in the shower, doesn’t it!

Bioderma sensibio H2O make-up removing micelle solution – I caved and bought this popular cleanser. I’d been using a micellar oil from Décleor which was lovely but quite pricey, so I thought I would try out something a bit cheaper. The Bioderma micellar water is great for sensitive skin and takes make up off completely – I even use it to take off my eye make-up, although I don’t think it will work on waterproof mascara.

Ojon rare blend moisture-rich cleansing conditioner – this fad of co-washing has passed. I thought a cleansing conditioner was for me, convinced it would help me maintain healthy hair. Hmmm, I’m not sure it has made that much of a difference. In fact, I noticed greater hair loss whilst using a cleansing conditioner – a story for another day.

Aurelia Probiotic revitalise & glow serum – I love this stuff! I’m sad this bottle has come to an end. I have recommended it to lots of people now. Admittedly, I haven’t replaced it yet, instead going for an elemental herbology serum (another brand I have the hots for).

Original source coconut & shea butter shower cream – their shower gels are just so yummy smelling, vegan, not tested on animals and packed full of natural moisturisers. There is something exotic about the smell of coconuts, and I love being transported to sunnier climes as a result.

M&S Moroccan escape bitter orange nourishing hand & nail cream – I bulk bought these from M&S a while ago. This is my last tube. The smell of bitter orange is so tantalising. It’s not the moisturising of hand creams, so I won’t be buying any more.

Baylis & Harding great body, body firming cream – this was a freebie sent to me. I’ve not seen it in the shops, and it doesn’t seem to be available online except for on ebay. I am guessing that the PR who sent it to me was just getting rid of some old stock. It’s a light moisturiser that doesn’t do much fort dry skin, and I didn’t see the firmness of skin improve either. I’m glad I didn’t part with any cash 🙂
