February for me was a month of trying to clear some of the clutter from my bathroom cabinets. As a natural hoarder you can imagine the pain that this causes me, but it had to be done! As a result I’ve had a surprisingly big haul this month, which I wasn’t expecting. Let’s get into it.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray
I’m always a fan of a nice face spritz, and this one was no exception. The rosewater notes made this especially pleasant during summer. I’m never entirely sure how much sprays actually do beyond base level toning and hydrating, but they are a lovely accompaniment through the hotter months.
Lush Lip Scrub – Santa
I’ve had this hanging around for a year or so, and I thought to myself, no, you need to get through it. So I’ve been devotedly scrubbing my lips every two days or so in the shower. It’s amazing how easily you can integrate a lip scrub into your routine without too much time or effort. The result? Smooth lips. Win win for me.
Luvenesco Face Cream
No. Dislike. Too perfumed, not hydrating enough and a bit of a shit product. I really just used this as much as I could because I despise wasting product.
Simple Face Wipes
Quite enjoyable to use. These wipes were good for quickly wiping off makeup or excess grime and stayed moist the entire time the packet was open – that’s a win in my book.
Tony Moly Peach Punch Foam Cleanser
Another product I just wanted to use up. Whilst this cleanser in general was not bad, it was so ridiculously perfumed that it made me wary of using it on my face – never a good thing. It cleansed well but left the skin a bit “squeaky clean” which I hate.
The Body Shop White Musk Sport EDT
A nice, inoffensive scent. I enjoyed this one on days where I didn’t want a scent too overpowering. It’s a nice all-rounder with a generic masculine scent.
The Body Shop Shower Gel – Italian Summer Fig
Ahh I have such a love/hate relationship with this fragrance. It starts off fruity and then goes quite sweet on me, with a musky undertone. It’s not great, but it’s nice to use on occasion. I feel like this is a very acquired scent. Few people will like it.
Sunsilk Longer and Stronger Conditioner
I’ve always enjoyed the Sunsilk ranges and this one was no exception. Whilst no conditioner will ever do a great deal to my type of hair (think thin as fuck), it adds a nice level of hydration whenever my hair is a tad dry.
Carmex Lip Balm
My go-to at the moment. Really enjoyable and a cult classic for a reason.
Nivea Micellar Wipes
Ugh never again! Rough as all hell and dried out halfway through the packet. NEXT!
Keeping bundles of trash in your bathroom for months on end is not fun. Trust me. But whilst it’s a nuisance for me, it results in a lot of useful information for you. With an empties post/video if you scroll to the end of this article, you really get to see what I’ve been using, as well as get my thoughts on it! You are so welcome.
Cetaphil Moisturising Cream: I absolutely love this moisturiser! It’s a super thick and rich moisturising cream that doesn’t sit too heavily on the skin. It’s great because it won’t clog your pores – winner! I would recommend this for any type of skin, however keep in mind that it’s a night only moisturiser. Or possibly under thick makeup.
H/E by Jane Iredale Makeup brush: I love the bronzer that accompanied this brush, but the brush itself? No way. It’s shit to be perfectly blunt. Good idea, but unfortunately the bristles shed everywhere and it got far too annoying. Bye!
Garnier Moisture Match Dry Skin Moisturiser: Another product that I didn’t like. This moisturiser was really thick and clogging on my skin. I also felt that it was far too scented for something that was sinking into my face. I do like a few of the other moisturisers that Garnier stock, so I’ll stick to them from now on!
Neutrogena Naturals Cleanser: I quite enjoyed this cleanser! It’s a bit of a dupe for the Dermalogica Special Cleansing gel which is awesome. It foams super easily and gives a good clean.
Nivea In Shower Moisturiser: I bought this product out of sheer curiosity to be honest. It lasted a while actually! I did quite enjoy it. Despite my doubts it did manage to moisturise my skin despite being used in the shower, and washed off.
Nivea Lip Balm: I go through so much fucking lip balm. This one is always a winner. Cheap, provides good moisture, it’s a no brainer.
The Body Shop Maca Root Shave Cream: This is a good shave cream. It’s really thick though so it’s best applied with a brush so keep that in mind. You can probably find cheaper alternatives.
Moogoo Cow Lick Lip Balm: The Moogoo lip balm is quite cream and enjoyable. It was a pretty solid lip balm, I go through so much that I literally grab anything. This wasn’t amazing, but it did the job well.
Tresemme Keratin Strength Shampoo: A nice moisturising shampoo, this was a good one to use every few washes. It would be too heavy for me to use every day. But it’s a nice one to have on hand.
Original Mineral Hair Mask: This was a hair mask that I used as a conditioner. I did notice a big difference in my hair. Because my hair is so thin though, I don’t think I could use this all the time. But it’s really enjoyable.
Lonvitalite Face Mask: I absolutely loved these sheet masks! Lonvitalite have a great range so definitely check them out and pick the one for your skin type.
Target Cotton Pads: Meh. Everyone has these.
Goldwell Hair Lacquer: A decent hair spray. I would re buy. Get it from Hairhouse Warehouse for like $10. Solid.
