Inika Liquid Mineral Foundation This is a sample I've had a while now, and hadn't used up because it smelt really strongly which put me off. I've finally got it finished, but it didn't grow on me with time and, on top of that, didn't last more than about an hour on my oily skin.
La Roche-Posay Redermic R Dermatological Anti-Wrinkle Treatment I really enjoyed using this sample tube from What's In My Handbag, and I did think it made a difference to the crease in my forehead, although in all honesty I don't think I got enough use from it to say for sure.
Repurhcase? In the future.
Alpha H Liquid Gold I wasn't impressed with this when I used the first sample tube I had, and it hasn't grown on me with the second; I didn't really notice any of the effects it claimed, and felt like it dried my skin out a little. With my oily skin, that's quite impressive, and I'm putting it down to the Alcohol it contains; this is putting me off repurchasing in the future as I really try to avoid Alcohol in my skincare for fear of stripping my skin and making it even oilier.
Repurchase? Probably not.
The Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Butter This was the second of two I bought in the January sales (I've made it last!) and whilst I do love the scent, I'm starting to think it may have been a bit strong for my sensitive skin and may be to blame for how quickly my skin was drying out. I have noticed with The Body Shop's body butters that the stronger scents can irritate my skin, so in future I think I'll be sticking to the gentler, more natural scents. That aside, I did love this body butter.
Repurchase? Not this scent.
Mitchum Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Bit of a boring one, but I've used it up so it goes on the list! This is the only deodorant I'll buy as it's the only one I find effective, cheap and cheerful, does the job, I'm a happy camper. Their Powder Fresh scent is also really lovely.
Repurchase? Yes, already have.
B. Refined Exfoliating Cleanser I purchased this on a whim and have actually really enjoyed using it; although it's less scrubby than the exfoliators I'd usually go for, I felt like the Salicylic Acid in the ingredients made up for that and meant it still did a nice job of removing dead skin cells and unclogging my pores.
Repurchase? Probably, at some point.
Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo A staple in my routine, this features every month and I don't have anything new to say about it - I love it and couldn't be without it!
Naked Strength Hibiscus and Frangipani Renewing Shampoo This is aimed at weak, brittle or mature hair and the first thing I have to say is, it smelt amazing - like marzipan! It did leave my hair feeling soft and healthy, and I think it has been breaking less, but I think maybe it's a little much for every wash, for my hair. It's something I'd buy again in the future to use maybe once a week to give my hair a little extra love, whilst using my favourite Naked Volume Shampoo the rest of the time.
Superdrug Tea Tree & Peppermint Creamy Exfoliator I'm gutted to have used this up! It smells lovely and minty-fresh, making it great for waking you up in the shower of a morning, and has just the right texture for leaving my skin soft and smooth.
Repurchase? I would, but it wasn't in stock when I went in so I bought an alternative instead.
Have you tried any of these products? What were your thoughts? Leave me a link if you've posted an Empties post, I love having a nosey!
