March: Used, Abused And Reviewed.

I didnt do as good this month, I've been testing out a couple of new products so didnt have much of a chance to use up what I already have but still, 5 empties isnt too bad even if 3 of them are small sizes.

REN Hydra-Calm Cleansing Gel* 150ml £17 | Hyda-Calm Cleansing Milk* 150ml £18: Only 5ml each but they lasted over a week. Both were simple and easy to use and as usual I used a muslin cloth. I liked both but the cleansing milk left my skin feeling more moisturised compared to the gel. It also wasnt runny like some cleansing milks I've tried in the past.
Would I Repurchase? The Cleansing Milk, yes.

RENU Radiant Skin Peel 100ml £32: Again, I got quite a lot of use from this small sample. The word 'peel' sounds quite scary, I'm sure it puts a lot of people off from even trying the product but I find enzyme peels so much kinder to the skin than mechanical scrubs. I've never had a bad reaction.
Would I Repurchase? Maybe but not at the minute.

Liz Earle Hand Repair. 50ml Tube £9.50: If like me you're a hand cream queen (or king) then this is definately one worth having in your collection. Sinks into the skin straight away and leaves no greasy feeling behind. Its brilliant, if you've tried this before them I'm sure you'll agree.
Would I Repurchase? Yes!

Elemis Exotic Lime And Ginger Hand And Body Wash. Full Size 300ml £18.40: I love Elemis, I'm a huge fan of most of the skincare but I'm really disappointed by their Sp@home range. I didnt like the scent, I found it really manly and smelling like a man isnt something I go for. Instead of using it in the shower I used it as a handwash and after a few uses I noticed my hands were getting really dry. Did anyone else experience this? I've tried 2 or 3 different Sp@home products now and am really shocked at just how much I disliked them.
Would I Repurchase? No
