Some of the products I have used in March.
Neal’s Yard English Lavender Body Lotion & Bath Shower Gel – The shower gel smells nice in the bottle but showering with it, I felt like a cow in a barn coating myself with dry grass! It smells quite strong in the bottle but it doesn’t feel so much after showering as you only smell a delicate amount on yourself. The lotion really does moisturise beautifully and it did make a difference.
Weleda Refining Toner – I have written about Weleda products before and they really do work. I like using toners before putting on moisturisers as it freshens the skin and love the feeling of that. This one contains witch hazel which helps with blemishes on your skin and doesn’t dry the skin.
Weleda Iris Moisture Balancing Hydrating Facial Lotion – This a watery based lotion,not at all thick and greasy. It is very light when applied to the skin. It absorbs really well and keeps the balance of moisture to your skin. I used normal to combination and really recommend this. You can also use it under make-up and in the night as well. Love this!
Crabtree & Evelyn Spiced Vanilla Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy – The texture of the cream is really good and it did moisturise, not at all greasy but the smell is too strong, almost sickly, for hand cream. The ingredients mentions perfume which I don’t think should be in hand cream. Too much preservatives in this hand cream for me.
L’Occitane Passionate Jasmine Hand Cream – I like all L’Occitane hand creams, this is no different to the others. A lovely subtle scent and it really moisturised my hands.
Lanolips Rose Hand Balm Intense – Smells old fashioned to me,like your granny would use! Disappointed with this I’m afraid for the quality isn’t there compared to others. It was meant to be really good for very dry hands but this failed for me.
Rimmel ‘Hide the Blemish Concealer – It was OK nothing special. It didn’t really hold for me so I will have to find something else..
L’Oreal Lumi Magique pure light Primer – This was very light on the skin, didn’t give break outs and it really gave a beautiful glow when I applied before foundation. it didn’t dry the skin and I really liked this product.
L’Occitane Pivoine Delicate Lipstick Limited Edition – It looks dark but when applied on your lips it becomes a beautiful subtle pinkish peachy colour. Doesn’t dry the lips and the packaging is lovely as well. Just love it and it’s a shame you can’t get it any more.
The end of two perfumes from my collection.
Escada Ocean Lounge – My sister bought this for me when I was still living in Latvia approximately six years ago! A floral, fruity perfume, just like me! Love this so much.
Paris Hilton Heiress – My sister bought this for my youngest sister but didn’t like it so I used it instead. When I moved to the UK, I couldn’t find it anywhere but my husband did find a bottle of it! It is a fruity perfume with passion fruit,peach, orange and champagne! The middle has ylang-ylang, jasmine and honeysuckle. A nice everyday perfume for me and one I enjoyed using.
