Empties May ’18

Frontpage

Le Petit Marseillais Spray Express Nutrition (Argan oil and orange blossom): Not sure if this is sold overseas and it’s a pity. This is a body moisturiser in a spray bottle and that’s what makes it great. The application is extremely fast and the product itself isn’t too thick and doesn’t stick. The smell is great as well. Con: you’ll have a tendency to spray it into oblivion and you’ll run out pretty fast.

Rating: 4.5/5

Repurchase? Definitely (might try another scent)

 

Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo: Definitely didn’t feel cleaner or fresher. As a matter of fact, my hair felt like one of those cheap orange wigs you buy for Halloween. Usually not a big fan of dry shampoos and this was a traumatising experience to say the least. I have tried out other Aussie products before and they were fine. This was by far the worst.

Rating: 0/5

Repurchase? God no.

 

Sampar So Much To Dew Day Cream: Nice day cream. I’d use it more for spring/summer time because it’s pretty light. Works for all skin types. Great for putting on before makeup.

Rating: 4/5

Repurchase? Probably not. I find it pricey (37 EUR) and, as good as it is, it doesn’t hold a candle to my Clinique Moisture Surge.

 

Batiste Dry Shampoo (Blush): Now, this is what dry shampoo is supposed to feel like. It does leave your hair fresher and cleaner looking. The scent can be slightly overwhelming, but that’s probably due to a poor choice of mine in the first place. I still don’t like dry shampooing, but if my life depended on it, this is the one brand I’d choose.

Rating: 4/5

Repurchase? I would if I had to. But I’d rather wash my hair.

 

Balance Me Restore and Replenish Face Cream: this is a travel size that I got from a subscription box a while ago. This, too, will work on a whole bunch of different skin types (mature, sensitive, normal, dry — and it worked on my oily skin). It’s supposed to reduce fine lines, but I didn’t notice any changes. I suppose a full size bottle would have helped form a more detailed opinion.

Rating: 4/5

Repurchase? No, I still like my Moisture Surge better.

 

Clinique 7 day Scrub Cream:  I think this will be more effective on people who don’t already use a plethora of skin care products. I used it every day for a week because I’m that literal, but I didn’t see much of a difference. This might be a nice way of easing yourself into the exfoliation craze, but I get more exfoliation just by looking at my Glow Tonic.

Rating: 3/5

Repurchase? Nope.

 

Clinique Moisture Surge: Yes, I do realise that I sound like a 98-year-old who had multiple strokes and keeps talking about the same thing over and over again, but this is a ride or die of mine. I already talked extensively about it in my current skin care routine.

Rating: 10/5

Repurchase? Bitch, please. I already have two backups.
