Hydrating and cleansing products I used up in January 2015.
January was a hectic month for me; February promises to be even more so, with a lot of travelling. I could only use two face masks last month, instead of my usual weekly packs. Nor did I exfoliate even once. Who has the time to live anymore?
I did, however, stick to my all-over-moisturising and strict facial cleansing routines. So this empties post is divided into hydrating products and cleansing products.
Check out the beauty products I used up in January 2015, and my quick thoughts about each:

here's why - and there are a few other foot creams waiting in my stash, so I will not be repurchasing. Also, a foot mask used two or three times a week is a lot better than a foot cream.
Konad Mango Moisture Hand CreamThis hand cream had the most sweet, fruity fragrance. It absorbed easily enough. There are a few hand creams I have to get out of the way, so I will not be repurchasing.
Repurchase? No, I still possess all my mental faculties, thank you very much!
Sheet masksBoth masks this time are tea tree-based; tea tree is one ingredient that does not do anything for my breakouts or oily skin.

Repurchase? Of course!
5 Alpha Control Cleansing GelI fail to see how they can claim this controls oil. Normally, face washes meant for oily skin leave my skin matte and pleasantly tight till the grease comes back - this did neither. Nor did it get rid of my makeup.
Shamar Aloe Vera and Goat Milk SoapI picked this up from this village while trekking in the Western Ghat hills (one of the top eight biodiversity hotspots in the world, in terms of diverse flora and fauna) last Fall - the soap is made by the locals of the area and is packed in bark. It is, without a doubt, the best soap I have ever used. The smell was great and it was so creamy and decadent. I am KICKING myself seriously for not having bought more than one, or a few dozen. Who can be bothered to climb all those miles again - with motion sickness - for soap?
Repurchase? I want to, but the fiddly thing seems to be unavailable away from mountain tops and the website won't sell online.
Palan Crysence 100% Natural Mineral Marin Shampoo and Power TreatmentMy hair loved the mild, watery shampoo; the power treatment did not do anything for me and caused enough product build up to necessitate immediate hair brush cleansing. I mean that! Who knew a mere conditioner could pack so much lint?
Repurchase? The shampoo alone.
That's it for January '15. I'm not really pleased with the quantity of empties or my skincare regimen; hopefully I will stick to my routine better in February.
