April: Used, Abused And Reviewed.

I'm a bit early this month but doubt I'll fully use up anything else between now and the end of the month so heres my early empties :)

Davines Authentic Cleansing Nectar For Hair/Body:  A 90ml sample from Glossybox. It can be used on the hair and body but I used it only as shampoo. Cleansing Nectar is a thin oil but once mixed with water it lathers up and doesnt feel oily at all. My hair was left feeling clean and I enjoyed using it but I wasnt as impressed as I was with the Moisturising Balm.
Would I Repurchase? No.

Liz Earle Skin Repair Light: Everytime you place an order through the Liz Earle website you receive a free gift, this was one of mine . Skin Repair Light is designed for combination/oily skin. The texture is a lot lighter than the other 2 options but I found it still left my skin looking quite oily after an hour or so. The scent is gorgeous though, reminds me of baby powder without being exactly the same.
Would I Repurchase? I hate to say this but probably not.
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish: Do I really need to say anything?
Would I Repurchase? Yes, I've got a few back-ups and a few half used tubes dotted around the house

REN F10 Smooth & Renew Peel Mask*: Formulated to gently exfoliate and detoxify. This gel mask has a thick paste/gel texture and is orange in colour. Full size (50ml) will set you back £20, not the most expensive peel on the market but not the cheapest either.
Would I Repurchase? Hmm, I'm not sure.
Benefit B.Right Refined Finish Facial Polish: I've already posted a review of this. I just found it way too harsh on my skin. Yes, it does a good job at exfoliating but my face was left feeling almost raw after. I bought a few products when the skincare line first came out, I was sucked in by the packaging and also because Benefit worked with Louis Vuitton Labs to develop the range.
Would I Repurchase? Definitely not.

F.A.B Face Cleanser: I've mentioned this a few times now, you can read what I said here.. I just love this cleanser, its paraben free and safe for sensitive skin. Another gem I discovered through Glossybox.
Would I Repurchase? Yes!

Lavera Eye Gel: I loved the texture of this eye gel, its a mix between a cream and a gel. It feels lovely and cooling around the eye area but I didnt notice any big changes. I got 4 of these samples from Latest In Beauty, squeezed them all into a travel pot and got well over a months use from it.
Would I Repurchase? Not sure.

  1. i love these kind of posts :)x

  2. Ooo have been tempted to try the FAB cleanser, sounds good! x

    1. Its just a really simple, fuss free cleanser. I wasnt even going to try it at first but I'm so glad I did.

  3. The FAB Cleanser sounds great. Pleased to see you got on well with the Davines Cleansing Nectar. I've just bought some of their Nou Nou Shampoo which I am looking forward to trying. Prior to it being in Glossybox, I hadn't heard of the brand.

    1. I hadnt heard of Davines before but I'm so inlove with the moisturising balm. Cant wait to hear what you think about the shampoo.

  4. great post hun, I quite like the sound of the Ren mask. x
