I seriously cannot believe how fast time is flying by, it doesn't seem five minutes ago since I was writing about my March Product Favourites and now I'm here writing about my April empties.
Without much further ado, and because it scares me to focus on the speed that time is going by, here are my April empties.
Actually intended for your face I used this scrub on my body, mostly because I needed a good exfoliation after winter but also because I wouldn't want to use something containing scratchy shell pieces (or pumice or any other manual exfoliant) on my face. Call me fussy but I do think that those sharp little bits could damage the more delicate skin of your face, whereas the body is a lot tougher.
I bought this just after Christmas when Marks & Spencer had a sale on, it's a hark back to my childhood when I used to buy the same bubble bath with my pocket money. I thought I was ever so grown up, and I just continue to love the smell of it. Of course back then you got it in litre bottles (or there abouts) that were pink pearlescent and scalloped, things have got smaller and more expensive since those days.
I love this styling cream, since I had my hair cut really short a while ago I've found this is the best product to create a spiky look and keep it up all day, other styling products usually flop after a few hours. It doesn't dry into a hard set but remains workable so you can re-jig your hair whenever you feel like it. I always repurchase this from my hairdresser whenever I run out.
This is another really good style cream, though I find it doesn't hold my hair spiky like the Clean Cut cream does, however with short, fine hair I get a lot of 'fluffiness' so this applied to wet hair before drying and finishing with the Clean Cut stops that happening and gives me a lovely clean, sharp look. Another product I always repurchase from my hairdresser.
One of my most popular posts was about this product, a fantastic started acid for those new to chemical exfoliation. I will be repurchasing before long but I'm currently alternating Glycolic Acid with Lactic Acid in my skincare routine.
A day cream that I found so thick and rich I was using it as a night cream, wonderfully scented and packed with skin loving ingredients it was a joy to use, the only reason I'm not repurchasing is because I'm currently using Dr Organic's Royal Jelly night cream instead. (expect a post on that in the near future)
Another product I really liked but was shocked at how many red ingredients there was in it. Currently still weighing up the pros & cons to see if I will re-purchase or not. Read my full review here.
I got this sample when I bought a few other Dr Organic products, managed to stretch it out a week, wasn't bad considering it contains snail gel which had been icking me out previously but apparently "boasts a wide range of anti-aging benefits including softened wrinkles, smoother skin, antioxidant protection and improved hydration". Very strong smell of lemongrass though, not sure I'm a huge fan of that scent in a face cream.
Another sample I received with other purchases, this was a gel, almost serum like, that felt faintly sticky under the above snail gel cream, seemed to grip makeup well. Could be used as a primer, still a very strong lemongrass smell to it though.
