I feel like I was only posting March’s empties like 5 minutes ago, but here we are at the end of another month and a round-up of what I’ve been using up. I’m pretty appalled at my usage this month, having only used 5 miniatures this month. I have been a bit hit and miss trying a few different bits and bobs out lately so nothing has got finished properly, but fear not; some full size products will be featuring in the May round-up.
First up is Soap & Glory Clean on Me Shower Gel. Since discovering this brand many moons ago, this has been a firm favourite in my bathroom as I absolutely love the smell and how soft it leaves my skin. Normally you can get this beauty on a 3 for 2 offer in Boots so you can get your cheapest product free. I love to top up on these deals every so often and grab some of my other favourite Soap & Glory products including this shower gel. When it isn’t on offer, it’s normally a fab price anyway at £6.50 for a decent size bottle.
I also finished a little bottle of the Kiehls Olive fruit Oil Nourishing shampoo. I struggle with shampoo due to the fact that my scalp is really sensitive and itchy and was sceptical about this product due to it including oil. I wanted to give it a fair review and after finishing it, wouldn’t rebuy in the future as it just didn’t get on with my scalp at all. You can buy a huge bottle of the stuff from Kiehls direct for £16 so its brilliant value for money if you are looking for a good shampoo for normal scalps.
Face wise I used up a sample size of Dermalogica Ready, set, scrub from their Clean Start range. Now this was actually purchased in New Zealand so the range seems to differ slightly in the UK. They do sell a Blackhead Clearing Pore Control Scrub though which works in a similar way. These retail around £13.10 depending on where you buy from however they are fab for those of us with acne or spot prone skin.
Again sticking to the face, I used up a sample of Moo Goo skin milk udder cream which retails at £8 direct from the site. This product came as a freebie when I purchased one of their shampoos for sensitive scalps. I have to say, I have loved this super light cream and have been using it as a primer on my skin before applying make up. It doesn’t leave your skin with a greasy texture and is blends immediately into the skin which is a huge plus.
Last up is health related and a finished tub of Asda Vitamin E 1 a day capsules. I started taking vitamins last year when I realised I wasn’t getting enough of the right nutrients in my body. Every so often I start on the Vitamin E again as it’s great for healthy skin. These are £2 and give you a months worth of tablets. Once the month is up, I generally take a multi-vitamin every day to help look after my body.
Despite being full of mini’s this month, I’ve used a bit of a mixture of things which is always good to share with you all. Next month I have an insane amount of empties coming up, so keep your eyes peeled for my mini reviews and recommendations.
