Good Evening My Lovelies!
Hope you are all doing well! I thought it was about time that I wrote you another blog so I have been brainstorming to see what I can share with you and then it hit me.
A while back, I was shopping in one of our local budget department stores (I think that is what you could class it as), Trago Mills. Basically they sell anything you can imagine from furniture to plants to stationary, even all the little weird and wonderful things that you didn’t actually realise you need! I found this cute little pink bin, that at the time thought would be perfect for my car as my boyfriend is literally the worst at keeping it clean and tidy! But it wasn’t ideal and believe it or not, not big enough for the big mess he makes!
So it just sat in my bedroom to add a little character, gathering dust. For a while now I have been toying with the idea to share with you some of the empty products I use but I always just naturally throw them away without even thinking! So you can imagine my delight when that little light bulb in my head was flashing!!
Here is the little guy.. !
I have now decided to use it for my empty products and when I have enough of a collection, I can share with you all my thoughts and whether or not I am in a hurry to run down to the shops and purchase it all once again!
Shall we get started before I start to bore you all with my ramble already? Right then, here goes…
To start with, I have the Nivea Invisible Black & White Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Spray. The promise is that it is deigned to be a clear spray to protect white marks on black clothes and yellow stains on white clothes, 48hour protection, it’s gentle on the skin and is alcohol and colorant free. These are all great but do they work? Meh. I wasn’t impressed and extremely disappointed because Nivea have to be my all time favourite brand. It smells fresh which I love, but I wouldn’t say it lasts 48hours (Nor would I particularly expect it to as I shower everyday!!) It is a clear spray and never had a problem with that horrible white fall out when you move your arm after spraying. Its not as protecting as I would like, but I probably would purchase in the winter for that lighter fresher feel.
My Lacoste Touch of Pink Perfume has to be one of my all time favourites! It smells so nice and I am completely gutted that it has finally run out! I’m not going to spend too much time on this one because there is only so much you can say about a spray, but it is rare I find sprays that I love simply because smells can be a major trigger for my migraines. Because it is a light and fresh smell it really doesn’t cause any headaches at all 🙂 Perfection! (Plus I love that it’s Pink!)
The Moroccan Argan Hair Oil by Organic World is designed for moisture repair and damage control. I apply it on damp hair and then again when I have finished styling it. Just a small pea sized amount each time. I found that it smells lovely and isn’t too heavy of an oil. It helps deduct time from my blow drying time and leaves a nice healthy shine to my hair. I am not 100% sure where it was bought as I do believe it was a stocking filler bought for me last Christmas (I have so many oils, it takes me a while to get through them all!)
The Rimmel 60 Second Nail Varnish in Caramel Cupcake is literally my all time favourite go-to colour. It is natural for all those that aren’t allowed a strong nail colour to school or work and it does genuinely dry super quick. I actually bought two of these when I last stocked up and is a regular purchase for me! I love love love it!! My only down fall with any quick drying nail varnish is that they do dry out in the bottle a lot quicker, however that doesn’t bother me because I am just a fidget when I have painted my nails and Rimmel especially have the best colours!
The Avon Lipstick in “Pink Pop” was gifted to me actually a couple of christmases ago by my dear friend Chelsea. It was my go to daytime colour for when I worked or just looked for that ‘perfect subtle pink’. It had a hint of shine and glitter making it pop, but it was the perfect colour for me! I would buy it again but it appears to be discontinued! 😦
And finally!The two concealers I have I have relatively recently written about.(Click here) My E.L.F Cosmetics cover stick in Ivory is genuinely one of my favourite concealers because the coverage is just incredible for the price. The colour is ideal for my complexion. It is of a thick heavy coverage but doesn’t feel greasy or heavy once blended! The Essence is perfect consistency and coverage especially for the under eye coverage. However the colour was a little too dark for my skin. I will have to double check that I did buy the palest colour. If it is the palest then I probably won’t buy it again or will buy for when I next go on holiday as it was ideal last time!
And there you have it! Have you tried any of the above products? Let me know!
Goodbye for now my loves xo
