I have seen these on YouTube and perhaps they are better suited to that platform BUT I have accumulated so many products that I have used up over the past I would 6-8 months. These items range from body care, skincare, and makeup (yay!). I thought I would take you through a few items and give a mini review.
Skincare items: the Ordinary squalane, Physicians Formula glow booster oil, Burt’s Bees radiance cleanser, Sukin exfoliator, Avalon organics exfoliator and a point perk Fresh Black Tea face mask and a Lush fresh jelly face mask. Okay, most of these items were good, but not mind blowing, just average products. A standout was the Physicians Formula Glow Booster facial oil. This is one I plan on repurchasing because it is beautiful. It is a blend of oils and actually (in my opinion) does boost the brightness of you skin and its an oil serum which is good to add to your routine. The Ordinary Squalane oil was alright, I have another one my mom recently gifted me but its not bad, it does boost hydration but I think I’d repurchase the oil serum before this. The other products, including the exfoliators were great but not things I would readily repurchase again because I love trying new things.
Body care: There are more things in this category than I originally thought I had. The Schmidt’s deodorant in bergamot and lime which is a great scent and works well. Okay, I am on a journey friends, A JOURNEY, to find a great natural deodorant. This was good but I prefer the sensitive formula as mentioned in my March things I liked and did. I also threw in my Tom’s whole care toothpaste. I like this one a lot more than their sensitive teeth one. This one was a good and I really like the flavour and it actually works. It does have fluoride which I’m fine with! I have already purchased this one and also got the Jason Powersmile toothpaste (thanks Morerebe). The Cake Beauty body lotion was delectable (as the name might suggest) and its smells like a tropical vacation. I will definitely purchase this again.
Makeup: This is the most exciting category. There are only four things. I know not super exciting for the normal person who only has a few makeup products but for me this is so exciting. I finally finished my project pan concealer the Pur disappearing act concealer and its finally done! I really liked this but I don’t think I will repurchase because I am still on the hunt for the perfect concealer. I also already have two in my collection to use up so I have to get those bad boys out my collection before I purchase anymore.
My body shop honey bronzing dome in champagne. This took me roughly two years to finish. TWO YEARS. Which is terrifying because I also own a million more powder highlighters and cream highlighters so I can only imagine how long those will take to use up. I also finished my Becca shimmering skin perfector in the travel size that I got during the VIB sale in April last year so it’s about a year old. I finished this a while ago probably in February but it wasn’t great honestly. It’s not a bad product at all, its gives a nice glow to the skin but it made my face quite itchy so I finished it for the sake of finishing it and won’t be repurchasing simply because of my skin’s reaction. The Nudestix mascara was the last product I finished in the past months. It was a really beautiful mascara – I loved it. It was the perfect day to day mascara and I would repurchase if I didn’t have so many mascaras to get through. A random but the Sephora dry brush cleanser is AMAZING. It’s the hidden gem of Sephora, it cleans your brushes instantly and is convenient to have on hand. Highly recommend.
