oh man, I've been away for a while!
I've been sick and literally stayed in bed for over a week and I'm still recovering, feeling very weak and generally tender in the throat/stomach department; actually, my husband also commented that he had never seen me so ill (and that's something because I'm notoriously a proper wimp!)
I usually write my posts daily and post them and yep, even typing was too much of a task... anyway, that taught me I should start to schedule!!!
Bit of catching up to do now... starting with my recent empties:
The Beauty Parlour Boob Tubes Day/Night: I got these creams for the breast area in Superdrug - they were around £6 on offer and they are huge size bottles so lasted a long time. I can't say I have been impressed by either: the day product is a cream, whilst the night is a gel. The performance was pretty similar but nothing special. I want high performance ingredients for this delicate area and these were just ordinary good moisturizers.
Aveda Energizing All Over Body Cleanser: underimpressed by this item too. It has a lovely refreshing and herbaly scent and milky consistency but honestly, I would never spend that kind of money on a body wash. It was nice to try it but didn't particularly impress me.
Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream: I love Clarins body products and the Clarins High Definition Body Lift is one of my all time favourite.
This cream is pretty thick and I wouldn't normally need something so rich but It melts in the skin beautifully and has a gorgeous scent, too. I like to use it at night, for that reason and I bet it will do wonders if you have dry skin. Can't vouch on the firming properties because the sample didn't last long but I'd be glad to use it again.
Repurchase: maybe, if I find it on offer.
Sprout Lip Balm: this is an all natural cocoa lip heaven goodness! It melts on contact with the lips, it is extremely moisturizing and if you're a lip balm junkie, you definitely need to try this!
I love the packaging of this range too - you can read more here.
Repurchase: yes - the citrus version is already on my wishlist. :)
Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque: Originally, I got the first sample in a GlossyBox ages ago and then I managed to stock up on a few other bottles; I think this is the third one that I finished and I still love this mask as much as the first time I tried it.
It works very gently but leaves the skin revitalized and looking radiant like nothing else... will definitely need to invest on a full size real soon.
Repurchase: hell yeah!
BioEffect EGF Serum: my holy grail! Another GlossyBox discovery and again I have used few of this wee bottles in the past 2 years. I don't use only this thing as my skin routine, purely because I like to try different products but when my curiosity will reach saturation point, I will settle for this! Well, settle is probably not the right word since it's bloody expensive but totally worth it.
Repurchase: yes, for life!!!
Which products did you discover last month??
