It’s empties time again, and I’ve only got a small crop for you (well, at least by my usual standards). Shall we get going?
Haircare to start, and there’s a bottle of the usual, Herbal Essences Bee Strong conditioner, which you know that I love (review here), but I also went through a fair amount of other conditioner too! I like the Sainsbury’s Basics Conditioner for finishing off left over shampoo – it’s cheap and it does the job. There are no frills, but I like the plain clean smell, and when you go through as much conditioner as I do, the litre bottle is quite handy. I also changed things up a little and went for Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine conditioner, which is nice but not as weighty as the Bee Strong. Continue reading
Believe it or not, despite all the hype I’d never actually tried any argan oil products on my hair, so I jumped at the chance to try out some haircare from Argan Dew. Argan Dew were kind enough to send me samples of their Miraculous Argan Oil Daily Hair Treatment*, and their Replenishing Hair Mask*, both of which I’m really impressed by! Continue reading
So, I’ve never had a beauty subscription box before, although I’m sure I must be the only blogger not to get the thunk of goodies through the door every month! Luckily for me, the gorgeous people at Birchbox and Glossybox popped their March boxes into the #Oxmeet goody bags, and I got my first taste of the high-end sample world! I’ve decided to battle them out to see which one made its way into my heart (and maybe my budget)… A warning, this is a very long post! Continue reading
Is it okay to love a product just because it’s utterly beautiful? I mean, look at this little bottle of gorgeousness. Ojon Rare Blend Oil is made up of three different layers of oil which you shake to mix, and then apply. I love the stripes, and I love the peachy colour the blend goes when shaken! Continue reading
Wow, January’s gone by so fast! The end of the month has really snuck up on me, and it’s already time for empties. Want to see what I’ve been using and finishing in the last few weeks?
The first couple of photos are things I finished at home, the rest I have finished in Oxford. Rather than store everything until the end of the month, I decided to photograph things in twos and threes, as they were finished, and then ditch the packaging so it wasn’t hanging around for ages! That’s why things aren’t in neat categories, but just in random groups…
Well, the end of the month snuck up on me, rather! It’s time for empties again. Since my most recent post was in the middle of December, I don’t have too much to show you, but I should get back into a proper monthly timeframe, so I’m wrapping up the year with the last of my 2013 empties.
It’s that time of the month again. The end of the month. As November trails off and away (where did it go?), I’m rounding up all the empty bottles and tubes from the huge Lush bag in the corner of my room… Yes, it’s empties time again!
This Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash came free with a magazine a few months ago, and I’ve really enjoyed using it (check out my review here). It’s quite a dark citrus, and is actually quite similar, to my nose, to Lush Happy Hippy, which I also used up this month. Both of these have really awesome scents, although they are quite expensive, as shower gel goes (the Balance Me one is £10.25 for 260ml, the Lush one is £6.95 for 250ml). I was less pleased with the This Works Daily Boost Body Scrub, as it smelled awesome, but failed at scrubbing (I reviewed that too!). Continue reading
The lovely Olivia at Beauty from the Fjord held a competition a little while ago, giving away four bottles of her favourite product: Eden Organic Care Avocado Oil (check out her review here!). My run of luck seems to be holding out, because I won one! I’ve had a good little while to test it out, so here are my thoughts…
So, even though I already did my empties for September, I managed to sneak in a few more use ups in the last week, and I refuse to move what’s effectively rubbish back to college with me! I’m off to Oxford today, so you might have to bear with me for posts for a couple of days while I get myself unpacked and sorted – I’ll be back soon, though!
I had to have this shampoo and conditioner scent as soon as I heard about it – I’m a big Herbal Essences fan, and a big honey fan, and my hair is still very damaged from two-year-old bleach. This couldn’t be more made for me, and I have not been disappointed. I love Bee Strong!
