I've been hoarding empty bottles like a crazy person the last few weeks so that once I had a good amount I could let you guys know my thoughts. I most appreciate reading these types of posts myself. You get a true opinion from someone who has used up every bit of the product, more so than the 'I've being using this product a week now' posts... just saying.
Well, I thought I'd start with the fun stuff, products I'd definitely repurchase! I actually got the Soap & Glory Righteous Butter in a gift set well over a year ago, but only started using it this summer, having so many body creams to get through! What can I say, it smells lovely and just does the job nicely. I love using it on damp skin just after the shower, it really locks in the moisture. The same goes for Burt's Bees Milk & Honey Body Lotion. I was so upset when I ran out of this sample (received in a Glossybox - post here). The body lotion is pretty much as thick as body butter, and incredibly nourishing.
The Tresemmé Glossing Spray with Argan Oil has been a joy to use and I'll definitely buy it again. I won't pretend that the Argan Oil did anything to improve the condition of my hair, but using this prior to blowdrying, and again as a finishing spray did leave my hair lovely and glossy! Tresemmé is always very affordable too, so even better
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, I don't even know how many times I've repurchased this product... a lot! Used with the muslin cloth it really does remove all traces of makeup and leave skin soft and smooth. You can read a full review of this, and a few other Liz Earle products, here. Despite all this I haven't actually repurchased this yet, I'm currently trying another hot cloth cleanser at the moment - so watch out for a review of that!
Another product I'm yet to review fully is the L'Oréal Nude Magique BB Cream. I've completely used this up and already repurchased! Though I'm slightly worried, I picked up my second tube in TK Maxx... don't products usually end up there if they've been discontinued?! I hope that's not the case with this product. Though I really enjoyed it, the one thing I thought was a bit dubious was the 'white to your skin colour' formula, gimmick much? You soon forget about this though and this worked really well for me as a BB Cream. Keep an eye out for a full review!
I have already reviewed the the No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream - check out the review here. This is my second tube and I'm definitely going to be repurchasing, though next time I might try the lighter version - the medium is just that little bit dark for me now my summer tan has started to fade!
The products I wouldn't bother with again (at least for now) are the No7 Protect and Perfect Intense. Now don't get me wrong, this is a really nice beauty serum (and I actually have a second bottle in my collection) but I didn't notice any life changing effect and there are a few others that I would prefer to try first! This is my second tube of La Roche-Posay Effaclar M, after my first tube (read the full review here) I said I wouldn't bother repurchasing this moisturiser, but I obviously don't take my advise because when my skin got particularly oily again I thought I'd give it another go! I just found that I needed a more intense moisturiser, so think this will be my last tube of this formula. I'll be trying more from La Roche-Posay though.
The one product I'm umm-ing and ahh-ing about is the Caudalíe Beauty Elixer, in my full review I mentioned I enjoyed using the Elixer and loved the refreshing feel this brought on a morning, though I didn't see any real benefits to my skin. However, I'm going to France at the beginning of December... so you never what I might come back with!
Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?
