GOOD LORD!!! Where did 2014 go? This is pretty much the same thing I say every year end. Anyway so as I mentioned few months ago, I was gathering most of my empties for 2014 and would do a post on them. So without further ado let’s get started (based on categories).
Andalou Naturals Clemetine Ginger Shower Gel – nice while it lasted.
Dr Bronners Magic Soap – comes in many fragrances and I’ve pretty much tried ‘em all. Always a repurchase.
Forest Essentials Mashobra Honey & Vanilla Shower Wash – got these during our holiday in India and these smell heavenly.
Kiehls Vanilla & Cedarwood – nice but not a repurchase left my skin dry.
L’occitane Amanda Shower Gel – Love & repurchase.
The Body Shop Tropical Oasis Shower Milk (now discontinued) – creamy wash which smells frigging awesome but sadly discontinued.
Yes I’m Eucerin Junkie and so is my husband. One bottle for each quarter.
Dove Nourishing Lotion – this was a holiday emergency purchase, needless to say went back to Eucerin.
Argan Body Crème – this stuff is RIDIC, sold in Spain supermarkets for ‘a Euro’ and smells divine and ultra-nourishing. Waiting for next Spain trip to stock up.
Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods – purely used it for its fragrance period.!
EO Organic Deodorant – purchase from Whole Foods, nice while it lasted.
Bath and Body Works Brown Sugar and Fig Body Splash – simply and purely for fragrance.
This one is a mixed bag. Somehow I managed not to save my shampoo or conditioners!
Aveda Invati Shampoo, Conditioner and Scalp Revitalizer – good while it lasted, not a repurchase
Aveda Pure Abundance – same as above
Daily Beauty for Wildlife Beach Spray – Yep I will repurchase, once I get through the million products I’m working through.
L’Oreal Everstrong Overnight Hair Repair Treatment – Nope made my hair flat.
Eva – Nyc Therapy Session Hair Mask – Nice while it lasted not a repurchase, same as above.
Random Samples – Molton Brown conditioner, Lush Hair Doctor – not purchasing any of these.
Jan Marini Bioglycolic Face Cleanser – very affordable glycolic cleanser with slight tingle, repurchase at some point in future.
Reviva Brighten and Lighten – experiment which was pleasant and will keep this cleanser in mind when I’m seriously broke but don’t want to compromise on results.
Skin Blossom Gentle Cleansing Milk – nice but won’t repurchase.
Dermalogica Precleanse – we’ve had on and off relationship, repurchase at some point in future.
Clinique Take the Day off Makeup Remover – same as above.
Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm – Defo repurchase when I’m in London.
Real Chemistry Peeling Gel – trial from Birchbox, did nothing to my skin, therefore not a repurchase.
Organi Enzyme Honey Peel – Extremely pricey but darn good. Can’t repurchase as it’s sold only in Australia.
Alpha H Liquid Gold Intensive Night Repair Serum – This has been repurchased for second time and it is FAB.
Aesop Oil Free Hydrating Serum – Whilst it’s pricey, it lasted forever. Made my skin appear oilier hence not a repurchase.
Juju Aquamoist Whitening Essence – experimental order from sasa.com which left me underwhelmed.
For localized spots in addition to La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo, I tried Aesop Control Gel (great product but too pricey for what you get) and Burts Bees Acne Solutions Spot Treatment (no repurchase, except giving a cooling sensation did nothing).
Bioderma Hydrabio Legere – Excellent product, immediate nourishment and have a back up.
La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo – Lifesaver, always a repurchase.
Juju Aqamoist Hylauronic Essence – experimental order from sasa.com which left me underwhelmed.
Origins Ginseng Eye Cream – Loved it, wanted to repurchase but it was out of stock. Hopefully when I finish my existing one I may come back to this.
Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Enzyme Mask – Holy smokes this stuff was good, but many similar products on market which I’m keen to try.
Revlon Colorstay Foundation – always there, one of my unsung hero.
Lakme Absolute Foundation – plesant while it lasted.
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer – In a committed relationship with this concealer, currently working through 2 of these simultaneously (one in purse and one in ‘concealer drawer’).
Bobbi Brown Gel Liner Black – Loved it! Trying Maybelline now.
Mac Paint Pot – Bare Study – this shade dried out too soon, not repurchasing.
Nars Pro Primer – Defo repurchase.
Guerlain, Clinique, Make Up Forever & Lakme Lipstick – Loved ‘em all while they lasted. No repurchases here.
Kiehls Hand Salve – www.thebomb.com yes love this product and been using for 4-5 years now. Always a repurchase.
Eucerin Intensive Repair Hand Cream – by now you may have guessed anything with AHA and I’m all over it.
Hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Year eve and may the new year bring you lots of love, luck, happiness, health, wealth, and peace in your lives.
