REN Invisible Pores Detox Mask I bought this because invisible pores sounded like something I could roll with, but ended up being pretty disappointed - as often seems to be the case with REN products. I don't know if my expectations are just too high, but let's be honest - I wasn't expecting actually invisible pores. I was expecting to see some improvement, but sadly, I didn't; this just felt like an over-priced clay mask with no real benefits over any other clay mask I've ever tried.
Armani Code Eau de Parfum I was so sad to finish this as I've had it about four years and absolutely adore it, it's a scent I always get complimented on and I just feel more 'me' when I wear it. It's pretty expensive so I wasn't expecting to replace it, but I actually treated myself to a bottle from Duty Free on the way back from Milan - with 10% off the already-bargain price, it really would have been rude not to!
Repurchase? Already have.
The Body Shop Wild Argan Hand Cream This smells absolutely beautiful and was a handy sized tube for keeping in my pocket at work, but I didn't find it as hydrating as some of The Body Shop's other hand creams - I'm loving their Hemp Hand Protector at the moment as it works so well to soften and moisturise my flaky, cracked, dry, sore hands.
Repurchase? Probably not.
Makeup Gallery Smoothly Does It Pressed Powder This little gem was from Poundland and lasted me a couple of months of almost-daily use; it worked well to set my foundation and I didn't find that it oxidised or anything like that. It didn't keep my skin matte all day, but then no powder I've tried thus far has, and at just £1 for a compact, I certainly can't complain!!
And that's it! Told you it was a poor effort. Have you tried any of these products? If you have any SLS- and silicon-free shampoo recommendations to share, I'd love to hear them!!
