Skincare

IMG_2301

Eucerin Even Brighter Day Cream SPF30

Would I buy again? No

I bought this because of the good SPF and in the hope it might help fade some of the marks left behind by spots on my cheeks. This didn’t happen and I could barely use it because when I did it would make my eyes water for the rest of day. I ended up just using it on my neck as my eyes were SO sensitive to it, even though I obviously wasn’t putting it directly near my eyes. I must not get along with the ingredients. Very happy to finish this up.

Nivea Daily Essentials Rich Regenerating Night Cream

Would I buy again? No

This is far too thick and rich for my face, I felt it just clogged up my skin rather than doing any good. I used it on my hands and body to finish it up.

Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil

Would I buy again? Yes

This is lovely product and featured in my July Favourites. Nourishing and smoothing, it can take your makeup off or be used as your second/morning cleanse. It smells so lovely.

La Roche Posay Effaclar H Multi Compensating Soothing Moisturiser

Would I buy again? Yes, if they were cruelty free

This is a lovely moisturiser, it’s light but it gave brilliant moisture! This was really pleasant to use when I’d been drying out my face with treatments trying to get rid of spots.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Would I buy again? Yes, if they were cruelty free

A good standard micellar water that does what you need it to do! It is probably the best value for money one out there with its 400ml size.

Nivea Daily Essentials Sensitive 3 in 1 Micellar Water

Would I buy again? No

This does the same job as the Garnier one, no better or worse really. If you’re not that bothered about cruelty free status then you might as well go with Garnier as it’s better value for money!

Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion

Would I buy again? No

I got this free when I bought a Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser which was a nice extra. However this is a bit of a pointless product I think. It feels nice and cooling on your eyes, but a splash of water does the same thing for me! I can’t see this being useful to anyone unless they have very sore or sensitive eyes.

Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Cleanser

Would I buy again? Yes

This is a lovely creamy cleanser! I used it as my morning cleanse and second cleanse in the evening after removing makeup with micellar water. I’d definitely recommend.

Make-Up

IMG_2305

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

Would I buy again? Yes, if they were cruelty free

Annoyingly this was an amazing concealer! I would probably say I slightly prefer it to Collection Lasting Perfection, it’s so creamy with amazing coverage for under-eyes as well as spots, but I don’t want to buy it again due to their animal testing status.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation

Would I buy again? Yes, if they were cruelty free

This is actually a really good foundation in terms of lasting power and coverage. The colour match of this one was not good for me, I don’t know how I wore it! It’s just too dark for me, but they have paler colours that would probably be fine.

Makeup Revolution Brow Dual Arch & Shape

Would I buy again? Yes!

This is a really good value brow pencil. It lasted way longer than the Sleek one, and is easy to use and a good colour. It has a pen/inky end which I didn’t really use as they don’t do much, but the pencil is great to fill in and shape.

Haircare

IMG_2302Yes To Coconut Ultra Moisture Conditioner

Would I buy again? No, I don’t think so

I’m on the search for great cruelty free haircare, so I tried out Yes To. It’s a nice conditioner, smells lovely, you’ll love it if you’re a coconut lover! It’s also 97% natural which I like. Unfortunately I’m not sure I’d purchase again as it didn’t quite live up to my expectations in terms of moisture. My hair is pretty dry and it wasn’t as nourishing as I’ve been used to.

Bodycare/Miscellaneous

IMG_2300Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream

Would I buy again? Yes

If you’ve smelt this then you’ll know how amazing it is! This is a mini one I got in a Christmas gift set last year. It’s a gorgeous scent and a lovely formula. Definitely worth a try!

Crest 3D Whitestrips Advanced Vivid Glamorous

Would I buy again? Yes

These are really good and made a genuine difference to the whiteness of my teeth! My Mum noticed it and said how well it had worked and I noticed in photos they looked better. I was dubious to try them but my friend had and she has lovely white teeth, so I went for it, and I’m happy I did. I finished the pack months ago and my teeth are still pretty white, so it does last. I’ll buy some more in future though if I see a big decrease in brightness! My teeth were not super yellow to start off with but these just made them a lot nicer and gave me more confidence smiling! The site I’ve linked is the one I bought from and it was all legit and arrived super quickly.

Clarins Eau Des Jardins Smoothing Body Cream

Would I buy again? No

I didn’t technically buy this, it was part of the Selfridges Summer Beauty Box. It was nice to use up, but it wasn’t anything exceptional in terms of moisturising. It did smell nice though!

Phew, that was a long one. Well done if you got to the end!

Best wishes,

Nicole
