I spent the first couple of months of this year grappling with a bad infection. Things are looking up and I only have scars to heal now. I've finally chugged my way to a 10-step skincare routine. Will post about it soon, including steps and products. First, I have to show you this month's trash - I've actually managed to use up a couple of makeup products!
Scroll down to check out the beauty products I used up in June 2016, and my thoughts on each. And do join in the Beauty Empties Link-up.
Bath & body products:
Cowshed Moisturising Hand CreamThis is a very soft, pleasant cream that saves my hands from chapping. Nice.
Repurchase? I recently received another of these from LookFantastic.
Bubble Bath Steam MilkDelicious-smelling bath powder. Received in a Memebox sometime ago.
Repurchase? No. Because...
Kneipp Herbal Bath in Moisturising LavenderGorgeous deep blue bath soak that smells decadent. The final work in pampering bath soaks.
Sally Hansen Moisturising Foot CremeNothing special. You can rub any old cream on your feet in lieu of this one.
St Ives Naturally Smooth AHA Complex Body LotionA lightweight body lotion that inhabited my shower through June. Really nice.
Repurchase? Eventually. Lots to use up.
Koelf Melting Essence Foot PackThem Koreans make the world's greatest foot packs. One use and your feet are darn perfect in the morning.
Repurchase? I have 25. Will buy when I run out.
Elizabeth Arden Prevage Night CreamWas too heavy for my oily skin. Prefer the following product.
Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Cell Revitalising MoisturiserNice and light. This is actually a day moisturiser but I used it one morning and one evening.
Juara Turmeric MaskCame in an Ipsy bag. There was enough for a couple of uses. Turmeric having antibacterial properties, I used this when my skin felt congested.
Repurchase? Other masks in the sea.
Kiehl's Midnight Recovery ConcentrateTook me ages to get through this. It was too greasy and did squat-all for me, so I finally ended up using it on the body.
Repurchase? 'Course not.
Mua Fabulous Everyday Star CreamThe product responsible for getting me into Korean skincare, back in the day. This is my third tube.
Repurchase? Not now, time to move on.
Ling Skincare Oxygen Plasma PotionI have NO words for how absolutely brilliant this stuff is. The perfect serum-and-moisturiser-and-treatment if you have any kind of trouble on the skin. Also, the best pre-makeup moisturiser. Review soon.
Repurchase? Did during a discount.
Lailly 7 Seconds Aloe MaskDecent sheet masks with plenty of serum.
Repurchase? Nope, long queue first.
Shiseido Pore Smoothing CorrectorSuper-greasy primer. Got some product left, TBH, but I have to bin this. Shouldn't have let the SA talk me into this slime.
Repurchase? *Runs to throw up (Sorry. Fact).
StyleX Natural Sketch Eyebrow Tattoo PenLike most Korean makeup, this eyebrow colour wasn't very pigmented. I prefer something like Gimme Brow.
