This year’s finally coming to an end and what better time to get rid of all the empty bottles of beauty products than now?
Skincare and Makeup Products
Purederm Tea Tree Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes and Purederm Argan Oil Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes – I’ve mentioned many times that I’m not the biggest fan of wet wipes but I always have a packet when I travel. These took me a long time to use up but I have to say, they are probably my favourite wet wipes, so far. They are really gentle and remove makeup quite well, the Tea Tree ones feel very refreshing and I think I’d repurchase them;
Arminabio Organic Chamomile Water – It shouldn’t be a secret by now that I adore floral waters and this one was the first chamomile water I’ve ever tried. It removes the last traces of makeup after cleansing, it feels soft on the skin and I already have a second bottle of it. Not really keen on the packaging though, the spray isn’t working very well but I can live with that;
Sephora Lotus Face Mask – Whenever I have access to a Sephora boutique, I always take the chance to stock up on their sheet masks. Love most of them and this soothing and moisturising one is a favourite of mine;
Balea Aqua Hydrating Serum – Another bottle of this one is already in use, it’s a brilliant budget moisturising serum, the pump is great and makes it easy to get every single drop of the product. A must-have for me in the colder months and really good addition to my skincare routine;
Shiseido Ibuki Softening Concentrate – One more hydrating serum but a lot more expensive. It actually doubles up as a toner and a serum, it leaves the skin moisturised and soothed and has a lovely scent;
Alverde Q10 Eye Serum with Organic Goji Berry – This was a random purchase but it turned out to be quite successful. The eye serum has a nice scent and hydrates the delicate under eye area pretty well. The formula is rich in natural antioxidants, vitamins and minerals;
La Roche-Posay Effaclar K (+) – I’ve had a full size of this one but the sachet reminded me how much I loved it, it makes my skin smoother and clearer and I should probably get a new tube;
La Roche-Posay Effaclar A.I. – I’ve always had minis of this product but I think it might be time to get a full size of it because it does a great job at healing the hyperpigmentation that’s left from spots and reduces the redness when there’s an active spot;
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat – One more product I’ve had a full size of but I have to say, it’s not as good for my skin anymore as it used to be about 2 years ago;
Clinique Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse – Lovely brow gel that tames and fills in the brows, long-lasting and comfortable to wear.
Body and Hair Products
Bilou Creamy Mandarin Shower Foam – Shower foams are getting more and more popular (thanks to Rituals amazing shower foams) because they are easy to use and soft but rich on the skin. This one smells sweet without being too strong and I really enjoyed using it. Actually, I think I have two more scents from this brand that I found in Germany;
Naturé Moi Body Wash with Organic Fig Extract – I saw this brand randomly and purchased a couple of products because it’s not very common to see sulphate-free products at the drugstore. This body wash contains Salicylic Acid and is purifying but mild, it doesn’t have the most ‘clean’ ingredients list but I’m impressed considering it is so affordable;
Balea Professional Pure Volume Shampoo – One of my favourite drugstore shampoos, it has a light gel texture and gives my hair so much volume and shine, have repurchased a ton of times and will continue to repurchase;
Alverde Ultra Sensitive Shampoo – That was a nice everyday shampoo, it’s sulphate-free, gentle to the scalp and pretty affordable;
Rituals The Ritual of Sakura Body Cream – That will be my next Rituals body cream, it smells divine and hydrates the skin beautifully. I’m a big fan of the brand’s body creams, the Honey Touch is my favourite but this one is just as lovely;
L’Occitane Milk Concentrate with Almond Milk – One of the most hydrating body moisturisers. Smells exactly like the brand’s famous shower oil, has light texture but feels incredibly nourishing;
Victoria’s Secret Sheer Love White Cotton & Pink Lily Fragrance Mist – These are not something I would usually go for and I ended up giving the mist to mum because she liked the light scent. It’s not bad but doesn’t stay on the skin for a long time;
L’Occitane Jasmin & Bergamote EDT – Fresh and delicate scent that is quite pleasant but it doens’t last long on me;
Bvulgari Rose Goldea EDP – I love scents with rose notes, many perfumes at the moment have rose in their middle notes but when it’s one of the top notes, I always feel like it’s a bit too heavy and oriental for my taste. However, this is not the case with Rose Goldea. This fragrance is so beautiful and feminine that I could actually think of purchasing it.
These are my last empties for 2016 and I’m really excited for my favourite products of the year!
