I seem to go through beauty products faster than anyone else I know. I swear I don’t use more than the necessary amount... Anyway January has been a good month as I am throwing/ finishing/ giving away a load of stuff without having bought anything to replace it. Everything is looking a lot tidier (and the bank balance is a little happier too).
First up my tube of Rapidlash died right at the very start of the month. Since I stopped using it my lashes have started looking a little worse for wear but although I love the product and would love another tube it’s not a priority right now.
Rimmel Summer Angel lipstick. Look at that sad looking beaten up tube! Aw... It is finally dead. I used this pretty much like a shimmery lip balm. I have similar things though so don’t need to repurchase. I suppose if I do decide to turn this no buy into a project ten pan then at least it’s 1 down!
The Dermalogica Age Smart lip treatment was lovely but so overpriced. I won’t be buying the full size.
I cheated and poured out what was left of my MAC Fix +. I’d had it too long and find it to be utterly useless. At least it’s another empty for Back to MAC!
Cheapy Asda nail polish remover. Cost pennies, worked fine. Nothing to write home about.
Botanics Noureshing Face Cleanser. My first foray into the world of cream cleansers. It was fine but didn’t remove every trace of makeup. I’m trying other things.
Dove Summer Glow body lotion. It’s a nice gradual tanner and has helped perk up my pasty skin on many a winter evening out. I have another bottle to use up then I think I will try something else.
Lancôme Eau Micellaire Douce (express cleansing water) sample. I’m not a huge fan of this and I have another sample to use up of it. Meh.
Clinique Take the Day Off eye makeup remover sample. Works well but no better than my beloved Botanics eye makeup remover which is far cheaper.
Simple Kind To Eyes Soothing Eye Balm. It’s a cheap, perfectly functional eye cream that never bothered my sensitive skin. This was actually my second tube! I’m using something a little richer on my wintery skin just now though.
Clinique 7 Day Scrub sample. I prefer the No7 exfoliator as it has finer but more densely packed granules.
And finally a whole host is little hand cream/ body lotion minis (that I used as hand cream) from either gift with purchases or hotel bathrooms. My hands have been horrendous recently and there is nothing I loathe more than dry skin on my hands. It makes me gag.
How has January gone for you? Are you having a good clear out or have you been hitting the sales and restocking? x
