A pretty non-premium set of empties this month, except for Malin + Goetz and Gazelli (the latter I did not pay for – it was a freebie). It also shows I shop pretty much anywhere for beauty products – Marks & Spencer being the big surprise for me as they are now stocking a lot of famous branded cosmetics 🙂
So, in no particular order…
Rituals miracle balm – a delicious smelling hand cream that I have been using as a night cream. Very moisturising, and definitely the texture of a balm creating a barrier on the skin. I would definitely buy this again.
Marks & Spencer moroccan escape bitter orange hand cream – another hand cream (I go through hand cream like Naomi Campbell does mobile phones). The smell of this reminds me of Mediterranean holidays, and has fired up my desire to go to Morocco again. Who wants to come with me?
Malin + Goetz intensive hair conditioner – I can’t get enough of this conditioner. Definitely a lot less frizz if I am trying to dry hair naturally. I must be on my 3rd or 4th tube of this now. I’ve lost count!
Boots invigorating foot scrub – nothing luxury about it, it’s just a scrub! It does a decent enough job, although not as great as the pumice one from Scholl. This time, own brand did not live up to the big-brand-named one.
Crabtree & Evelyn la source conditioning hand wash – a TK Maxx find for a fraction of the price. If I could have any hand wash in my bathroom forever, this would be it. I have dry and sensitive skin, and my hands suffer the most (explains why I am addicted to hand creams) – this leaves my hands soft.
Gazelli triple youth white oil intensive age-repair cream – this was a freebie that just didn’t suit my skin – too thick and gloopy, which then sat on top of my skin and caused breakouts. So, instead of throwing it out I used it as a hand cream – it wouldn’t go to waste 🙂
Holland & Barrett’s calcium with vitamin D3 – for bone health and a vitamin D boost for mood. Nuff said.
