If you missed my January Consumptions post, I’m on a mission to use up products throughout the year as well as having a clear out of my makeup collection.
I managed to make my way through quite a lot of products in February so I’ll keep things short and give you a quick overview of each product. I haven’t kept packaging to photograph as I have nowhere to store it.
Pixi Cleansing Balm
This isn’t the one which was created by Caroline Hirons, it’s the original formula, which almost feels like a wax. A little goes a long way and it does remove makeup while nourishing the skin.
Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub
My lips have been dry due to my Roaccutane treatment so this helped scrub off flaky bits.
Lush Star Dust Bath Bomb
One of my favourite Christmas bath bombs, it’s a lovely scent and doesn’t have a tonne of glitter, which I am not a fan of.
Lush Peeping Santa Bubble Bar
This little bubble bar smells a little like strawberries, I adore it! I always stock up at Christmas.
Lush Father Christmas Bath Bomb
If you love the Snow Fairy scent, this bath bomb would be ideal for you.
Lush Magic Wand Bubble Bar
Again, smells like Snow Fairy, everyone’s Lush favourite.
Lush Kiss Me Quick Wash Card
I received this in a goody bag, it’s a little bit of a novelty. It’s a cardboard like texture which you run under water to foam. I wouldn’t purchase again as it doesn’t last more than one wash.
Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel
If you couldn’t tell I love the Snow Fairy scent. I have back-ups of this.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum
I bought this on The Anna Edit’s recommendation a while ago and fell in love. Simple and effective, I will always repurchase.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in 1C0 Shell
Amazing at providing heavy coverage. I would recommend to anyone with oily skin.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
I loved this mascara, it didn’t flake or smudge and provided fluttery lashes.
Johnson and Johnson Face Wipes
Yes, I’m guilty of using face wipes out of laziness. I find they remove mascara better than just a cleanser. I usually cleanse with a balm or oil after using them as well.
Tesco Lavender Candle
This cost about 80p so it wasn’t amazing quality but had a nice lavender scent.
Mark Hill Hydrating 2 Minute Hair Mask
I loved that this was quick to use but it did leave a slightly greasy residue on my hair.
YSL Black Opium Perfume
One of my favourite night time fragrances. I recommend you smell it at a counter as it’s very unique.
I also went through my collection and tested and smelt products that I thought might have passed their expiry date.
Bourjois Bronzing Duo
This used to be the best bronzer on the high street, but so many other brands have better quality ones now.
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadow in Epatant
The texture of this is mousse like with a little bounce, loved the formula. It just wasn’t a very wearable shade so didn’t see much use.
NV Chunky Crayon Eyeshadow in Cinnamon
Lovely copper shade, I just have so many eyeshadow sticks that this was forgotten about.
Marc Jacobs Eye Stick in Twinkle Pop
Not sure if the whole range is like this, but it was very chunky glitter in the formula.
Topshop Eye Crayon in Mystical
This has seen so much love over the years, but it was way passed its expiry date. I don’t think they do this shade anymore.
Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in Uptown
I wore this colour so much and I adore the gel effect formula, as it’s so long lasting. It had just gone a little thick and gloppy, I will need to replace.
