Repurchase? Already have; full review coming soon!!
Spa Exfoliating Wipes I feel like a terrible beauty blogger for even having bought these - I promise I got them for the purposes of removing Halloween make-up! Does that make it okay? Probably not. Anyway, I've used up the last few for just taking of the majority of my make-up at the gym on days when I've gone straight from work.
Repurchase? Probably not, and it's honestly beyond me how people can just use make-up wipes to wash their face - I never feel clean!
COLAB Dry Shampoo in 'New York' and 'London' I won a full set of COLAB minis, these are the last two to finish up. Both worked equally as well as the first three in terms of absorbing oiliness at the roots on my second-day hair (I generally wash my hair every other day, as it does get oily really quickly) without leaving too much of a white residue. I wasn't a huge fan of the 'London' scent, which is simply described as "classic", but the fruity notes of 'New York' were right up my street!
Repurchase? Yes, I'd buy 'New York' again.
Soap & Glory Kick-Ass Concealer This is hands-down my favourite concealer ever; I controversially really don't like the ever-popular Collection Lasting Perfection one as I find it creases and cakes really badly on me, whereas this little S&G beauty covers blemishes and dark circles to perfection and lasts really well without sliding and creasing. The shade match (I have 'Light') is pretty much spot-on, too - this is a real winner as far as I'm concerned!!
Lacura Anti-Fatigue Face Mask This is one of those products I've been meaning to finish for ages but kept kind of forgetting about - and I don't know why because I really liked it! The brush makes it easy and fuss-free to apply to my face, it smells bloomin' gorgeous, and works really well to brighten my tired, dull skin on those days when no amount of sleep makes me feel like I belong in the land of the living.
Repurchase? If it's available, although the problem with Aldi's Special Buys is their limited availability - I should have stocked up when I realised how great this was!!
Repurchase? Maybe - I need to finish off some other perfumes first, though!
The Body Shop Absinthe Purifying Hand Cream These little tubes are the perfect size for keeping in my pocket at work for on-the-go hydration, as my hands can become very dry and chapped from the constant hand-washing. The Absinthe hand cream was light, absorbed quickly, and had a lovely delicate scent. However, it just wasn't as hydrating as the Hemp Hand Protector which I have to say is pretty much a Holy Grail hand cream for me!
Repurchase? Maybe, though I do prefer the Hemp Hand Protector.
Lacura 100% Pure Cotton Wool Pads These are so cheap it's unreal; a twin-pack cost me just 79p if memory serves! They're soft, just the right size, and don't disintegrate when I'm using them. There's not much more I can ask for from cotton wool pads and I definitely see these becoming a staple - especially when they're so easy (and cheap! Did I mention they're cheap?) to pick up with the shopping!!
The Body Shop Aloe Calming Toner* I've been using this for quite a few months and have found it soothes and calms my skin beautifully, making it perfect for after a clay mask. I've actually been using it most mornings to calm my skin before I apply my make-up for the day, and have found it leaves my skin smooth, clean and ready for my foundation, without feeling dry or tight in the slightest.
Revlon ColorStay Foundation in 110 'Ivory' I really loved this foundation at first for its brilliant lasting power and great shade-match to my super-pale skin, but as time went on I found it a little heavy and mask-like, so I started to mix it either with a lighter foundation or a bit of moisturiser, just to make it a bit more comfortable to wear. The lack of pump on the bottle really did my head in towards the end of the bottle, too - I had to stand it upside down to drain, and then because I hadn't shaken it, the foundation all separated...
I felt like this had been a pretty unproductive month as far as empties go but I've actually got quite a nice little selection here to pop into the recycling bin now! Have you tried any of these products? How have you got on with clearing out your beauty stash this month?
