Preparing for a move, I'm using up products like mad right now. Some of these products still have a little left in them but I'll be tossing the original packaging and storing what's left in sample or travel containers.
The Body Shop Grapefruit Body Butter
This body butter is a lighter than the other body butters I've had in the past. It smells fruity as it should and is perfect for the summer. On to another body butter!
This was a great morning cleanser. I can't be sure if it made a dramatic difference to the brightness of my skin or not but it was a refreshing cleanser that was a joy to use every morning. It gently cleanses the skin to remove any leftover product from the evening before and leaves the skin properly prepped for the rest of my morning skincare routine. This bottle lasted me about 6 months of everyday use so I would definitely consider purchasing this.
This cleanser grew on me halfway through the 50mL travel size. I didn't find it to be anything special until I noticed how comfortable my skin always felt afterwards. It doesn't do the best job at removing makeup but it does make a great first evening cleanser or morning cleanser. I would consider purchasing this.
At first I found this lotion to be too thick, even though it is aimed a oily skin types. I quickly realized that I was using too much product and that was why it took so long to sink in. Literally a pea sized amount is enough to cover the entire face, keeping it nourished throughout the day without becoming overly oily. It sinks in quickly when applied in a thin layer and makes a good base for makeup. I would consider purchasing this.
For a while, there were blog posts going around on the ingredients in this product. The comments weren't exactly positive. I really enjoyed using this product though because it worked well for my skin. I used this every night to hydrate and keep the blemishes at bay. It worked for me, but the price has since gone up on this product and again, the ingredients have me rethinking. It's hard to let go of this product but I'll be trying something new for now.
Is it a toner or a refresher? Perhaps both? I can't be sure of what its main purpose is but I used it as a toner and it definitely helped calm and heal spots. It was a refreshing step to my skincare routine while it lasted. When using this daily, this product goes very quickly. For the price, I don't think I'll be rushing out to repurchase it again. It's more of a treat.
This product is perfect for getting rid of the powder finish. It is also great to spray on brushes before using a shimmery eyeshadow to make it look more foil-like and stick better. It helped to keep my base on longer throughout the day too! I definitely enjoyed using this product, especially throughout the summer. I'm trying other setting sprays by Urban Decay right now, but I may turn back to this one.
I loved using this detangling and conditioning mist. It was light enough to keep my hair volumized but nourishing enough to keep my hair healthy. I used this nearly every day after washing my hair and it lasted a solid 6 months. I will consider repurchasing this, but I'm currently trying something by Bumble and Bumble for a change.
