I thought it was about time for another 'empties' style post as I haven't been talking about beauty much on the blog recently. Some of these products are things you'll see me buying all the time, but I'll take this opportunity to give you my honest thoughts on these products now they're all used up (with some questionable looking, scratched up packaging!).
Lush Snowman Shower Jelly: Let me start off by saying this has my favourite scent from Lush ever. It smells incredibly sweet, and kind of like blackberries, but there's something so intoxicating about it. This stuff lasts SO long, and while it's a bit inconvenient to use, it makes your skin so soft and the scent lingers.
The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Cream Body Scrub: This smells super fresh and lovely. It is a really nice scrub and generally I think all the body products from The Body Shop are good.
Simple Rich Moisturiser: I've been using this again for the past few weeks after I found other moisturisers were clogging up my skin a bit and generally not leaving a fresh feel to my skin. This moisturiser is really basic but works perfectly at not being oily. I've since purchased another one.
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water: I've now tried three versions of micellar water and this one is probably my least favourite. It is very liquidy (sounds weird because it's meant to be - but I think it's just a bit too watery), the smell isn't my favourite, and there is a possibility it may have broken out my skin. Overall it was good, but I think there are better micellar waters out there.
Lush D'Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap: I used this up ages ago, but from memory this was just okay, really. I tried to make this little pot last, but I don't think it's worth buying. It smells super lovely (like musky sweet strawberries) and it did leave my skin soft, but it's not something I immediately want to go out and buy again.
Bioderma Make-up Removing Micelle Solution: This micellar water I did prefer. I felt like it wasn't stripping on the skin and removed make-up very well. I would buy this over the Garnier version even though it's a bit more expensive, especially with it not being exactly easy to find in New Zealand.
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation (in 010 Light Porcelain): I never thought I'd actually finish a foundation but here we are! This is my go-to foundation because it's light enough for my skin and gives off a radiant glow. I don't think this is my perfect foundation, but I still like it. It is quite pink-based so I feel like I need something a little more neutral.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer (in 15 Fair): This is such a glowy, radiant concealer which I find is great for under the eyes. I do use this around my face sometimes too because it doesn't cling to dry patches, but sometimes it can look a little oily if you don't powder well. Still one of my go-to concealers!
Lush Celestial Facial Moisturiser: This was such a lovely moisturiser - I was convinced I'd found a holy grail product once I'd used it. However, I feel like if I use this too much, or everyday, my skin can get a little clogged up because it's not light enough. I'm not sure if I'll buy this again for that reason, but honestly, this helps so much to get rid of redness (probably down to the almond oil) because you wake up in the morning with calm, glowing skin. It also smells lovely and lasts AGES despite looking like it wouldn't.
