I managed to use up quite a few products throughout this month, including make up and nail polish which is almost unheard of for me!
Lee Stafford 'For Hair That Never Grows Past A Certain Length': This is also a treatment that is used post shampoo and pre conditioner. Smells divine and leaves my hair silky soft - can't actually say it has helped my hair grow any longer though. Undecided if I will repurchase.
Batiste XXL Volume: What can I say - a dry shampoo that not only disguises greasy hair but provides bouncy volume too, will definitely repurchase.
Sanctuary Pore Refining Toner: I love that this toner comes in a spray bottle, I think all toners should. This is a nice refreshing spritz but the toner itself nothing special. I have about 10 other toners to use up, so no need to repurchase just yet.
Clarins Water Purify One Step Cleanse: Love love love this stuff. I bought this for lazy days when I am not wearing make up and just need a quick cleanse in the morning or at the end of the day. This has been a lifesaver for me this month. I suffered a particularly nasty bout of flu earlier in the month and the last thing I could do was cleanse/tone/moisturise. A quick sweep over the face with this kept my skin fresh, clean and blemish free. It has the consistency of a toner, but offers a deep cleanse. Will definitely repurchase.
Clinique Take The Day Off: I tend to rotate three favourite make up removers and this is one of them. My favourite type of make up remover, this is a dual phase that removes every last trace of make up, even waterproof. A long time staple of mine, I've been repurchasing this since my late teens.
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Stress Control Ultra Light Moisturiser: This is a cheap, effective and amazing product that I discovered when googling certain ingredients in skincare. I was particularly interested in salicylic acid (bha) and in a nutshell learnt that salicylic acid works most effectively at a concentration of 1-2% and at a pH level of 3-4. This light gel moisturiser has exactly that and all for under £4. Said to be a cheaper alternative to items from the paula's choice range (I don't know, I haven't tried them) Will definitely repurchase this (this is my third tube!)
Chanel Le Vernis - Rouge Noir: Possibly the most famous Chanel cosmetic item, this blackened red nail polish is another long time staple of mine. I've had this bottle for around 8 years and whilst a little still remains, it has totally dried up and become unusable. People say Chanel's polishes are expensive (currently £17.50 I'm sure I paid around £14-15 for this back then) but years of usage makes it very economical! Definitely going to pick another one of these up asap.
Christian Dior Diorshow Blackout Waterproof Mascara: Not necessarily one of my favourite mascaras, I couldn't wait to use this one up. I am a big fan of the original Dior show mascara so thought I would try the 'blacker than black' version. I don't find this any more effective than the original Dior Show and it is 10x more difficult to remove! Won't repurchase this particular one, but still love Dior mascaras.
YSL Singulier Mascara: My HG mascara is YSL's Effet Faux Cil so I thought this might be in the same league. I was wrong! I don't get on with the oddly curved, spiral rubber brush and I don't find this to be as lengthening or volumising as EFC. It's nice, just not WOW enough for me. Won't repurchase.
Dove Original Roll on Deodorant: Cheap, pleasant smelling and works. Don't need to say anymore, really! Would repurchase in the future but also have another 12 or so to try first!
Blistex Intensive Moisturiser: I picked this up in error, I actually meant to pick up the original Blistex Relief Cream. Don't rate this nearly as much and don't find it offered much in the way of moisture for my lips. Upon further investigation this contains petrolatum (hate HATE petrolatum) so no wonder it doesn't work. I refuse to put supposed 'hydrators' that contain petrolatum on my lips. Won't repurchase.
