The Recycling Bin #5



Quite an assortment of make-up and skincare this month, but not nearly as much as I'd hope for. Saying that, I have about four products I'm about to finish already, so another post may not be in the too distant future.

Apologizes if I glaze over the Tresemme 24 hour body shampoo. I often go back to Treseme shampoos as they seem to really suit my hair. My hair is very thick anyway (one of the reasons why I cut it short) but this definitely does add a little boost. Another product that has seemed to last forever is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in True Ivory. I really do like this foundation, it has good coverage and is the perfect balance between radiance and just eaten a chilli. Despite being medium coverage, I do find that I have to be particularly light handed, otherwise it ends up looking a bit cakey and occasionally it does slightly oxidize. I have repurchased it though, so clearly the pro's do outweigh the cons. My go to brand for eye make-up is Loreal. After my review of the Miss Manga Mascara you all must know I love it. The only downside is that I found it dried out very quickly compared to other mascaras I've tried (around a month) and then flaked like mad. I am fickle when it comes to mascara and will hardly ever repurchase one, but this may be one of the very few that make it into my basket for a second time. Lastly, a product that is a certain to be repurchased and one that I genuinely do feel an eyeliner shaped whole in life without, its the Loreal Super Precision Liquid Eyeliner. No other eyeliner has ever matched this for ease of use, pigmentation, lasting power on and off the lid, it's just perfect and it can never be discontinued. Ever. 

On to skin care now and I've finished yet another bottle from my stock pile of Lush's Snow Fairy Shower Gel. I have one more which I'm saving for the run-up to Christmas, making room for another mass buy. I make no excuses, anything that is pink, glittery and smells of candy is going to be one of my favorite products of all time. Another two products that I've become hooked on are the Derma V10 face creams(*). For £1 you know you won't get all the fancy scientific stuff that are in some other brands products, but dare I say it, my skin actually looked better whilst I was using this duo. I've debated re-buying the Boscia Konjac Sponge again, because it seemed to make cleansing more effective. using it to apply my cleanser was so soothing, and had a soothing effect on my skin too! If only I could justify another Sephora Haul. Oh spending ban, thou art cruel. Last but certainly not least is the Face B4 Daily Cleansing Foam(*). I know a lot of people don't like foaming cleansers as they think their too harsh for their skin, but I've only seen positive things using this. Although I did break out for one week, it helped to purge my skin of all congestion and improve it's texture and appearance. Now that I'm not using it I can certainly tell the difference. Change isn't always a good thing.

Have you tried any of these products?
