All Used Up #1
My first empties post! I've been wanting to write this for a while but I just wanted to gather a couple of products so the post wouldn't be too short.
Dove Hair Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner: I have the shampoo and the treatment from this line as well and I quite like them. The conditioner makes my hair soft after leaving it on for a couple of minutes in the shower and I can instantly feel it has done its job after I rinse it off. It is very affordable and easy to find. I have actually repurchased it but next time I would like to try a different one.
Dove Supreme Cream Oil Beauty Care Body Wash: a luxurious body wash that moisturises your skin and leaves it soft. Nice creamy texture though it doesn't foam up a lot. I like it and would use it again.
Nivea Pearl & Beauty Shower Cream Oil: really like the scent of this shower cream, it smells like roses so it is a good option if your summer fragrance is a floral one. It leaves skin soft and hydrated and even my husband commented on how soft my skin was after using this product. Recommended.
Simple Kind To Skin Pore Minimising Toning Cleanser: I originally wanted to get the Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Toner but this one said "pore minimising" so I thought I'd give it a try. At first I wasn't sure if it was a toner or a cleanser, and I wasn't loving they gel-like consistency either. In the end I used it to 'pre-cleanse' my face, removing dirt and makeup before using my 'proper' cleanser. I didn't see any difference in the size of my pores and didn't love this product either so I don't think I would repurchase, but if you are looking for a light cleansing lotion then this might be for you.
Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix: consists of 60 round exfoliating pads soaked in a glycolic acid solution. It advises to use them twice a day but I only used them 3 to 4 times a week to avoid irritation and excessive oil production. I like that they smell like Fruity Pebbles (not very relevant ha!) and that my skin felt soft and smooth the morning after using this product. They work well for exfoliating but I didn't see a big difference on my skin tone. I don't think I would buy them again as I didn't get the results I expected.
Garnier Skin Naturals Ultra Lift Serum+Cream: I won this in a competition along with another product but I am afraid I finished this one first. I used it every morning and night, but even though I can't comment on it's ability to combat the signs of aging as I am not that old, I can confirm it makes a good moisturiser and leaves skin soft and plump. It is quite light and therefore can be used under your usual moisturiser or makeup.
L'oreal Youth Code Luminize Serum: a bit expensive but a great product nonetheless. It all started out with a sample pack which I managed to make last for about 2 weeks. In as little as that I started to see a difference in the dark spots/hyper-pigmentation on my skin. It evens out the skin tone and lightly moisturises, as well as leaving your skin looking glowing thanks to some sort of shimmering particles in the formula. Since I have oily skin, the glowing skin effect was not something I enjoyed, but it works for correcting skin tone, is very light and absorbs immediately. I would buy again.
Have you tried any of these products?
