1. Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Shower Power Hair Removal Cream - 200ml


This product was provided for review purposes x You can read my full review here but yes I would potentially repurchase x

2. Copar Lovea La Carotte Oil - 50ml


Another products I was sent to review and you can read my review here. I'm not a 100% sure this worked but it won't have done any harm. I wasn't keen on the smell though so I wouldn't repurchase.

3. Ultrasun - After Sun - 125ml


You might wonder why I've used up an aftersun in a pretty cold September, well, there was just a little bit in this bottle and it wasn't worth taking, so I used it as you can do as a pre tan accelerator. It's a great aftersun, which is super cooling and I have a full bottle with me.

4. Dead Sea Spa Magik Salt Brushing - 50g


This was a beauty box sample, it was a nice salt scrub with a nice citrus smell and I would potentially repurchase x

5. Tea Tree And Peppermint Heel Patches


You may have seen these in yesterdays post. They were basically like giant plasters, with a tea tree and peppermint moisturising patch which you wear on your heels overnight. My heels felt a little bit softer but they didn't make a huge difference.

6. Vita Bella Anti Ageing Face Mask Aloe Vera - 13ml



This came in one of the beauty boxes possibly Birchbox. It consisted of a small bottle of liquid, and a sheet mask, you soaked the mask in the liquid and popped it on your face. It was nice but I didn't notice any difference to my skin so I wouldn't repurchase.

7.Superdrug Nourishing Nail Polish Remover Acetone Free  - 250ml


One of my favourite nail polish removers and one that I would definitely repurchase. Smells okay and does the job.

8. Model Prefer Automatic Eyebrow Pencil


I don't know how long I've had this for but eventually I've used it up. I have quite full brows so I never needed to fill them in, but over that past few months I've started to completely grow them out and change the shape so I've needed to fill them in. This brand now sells as YBF on QVC and I have to say that this is a pretty decent product, based of the pressure that you use, you can alter the colour, and it's fine enough to imitate real hair. I have a couple of cheaper pencils to try out but I would definitely consider repurchasing this in its new format.

9. Primark Beauty Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes With Tea Tree - 25 Wipes


Yes another packet of these, nuff said, nice and super useful, and cheap!

10. Rescue Oil - 40ml


I've probably used up half a dozen of these Bio Oil dupes over the years and I think it's great for stretch mark, and for dry patches.

11. House Of Holland Oh My Gosh You Can't Swear On A Body Wash - 200ml


I got a whole range of House Of Holland at Boots products for Christmas, and this was the body wash. It has quite a fresh unisex fragrance, it was okay but I probably wouldn't repurchase unless it came in a great value gift set x

12. Purederm Botanical Choice Exfoliating Foot Mask - 1 Pair


I bought these a little while ago now in Primark, but I was a little bit scared to use them. Despite liberal applications of foot cream and ped egging me feet were still pretty mank. So about a month ago I popped these little fruit acid infused boots onto my feet and left them for about an hour and a half. What happened over the next 3 weeks wasn't pretty the skin on my feet got drier and drier and eventually started peeling off. Not the most pleasant of procedures and it was hell not being able to moisturise them but it was painless. Now a month later my feet are 90% improved with just a little of dry skin still on my left heel. I've already got another pack to use in 6 months time.

So those were empties, mainly pre holiday bits but I was really please to have finished a make up item. I'm expecting to finish a lot more items in October x Are you doing something similar? let me know in the comments xx
