Beauty | Feb/Mar Empties

Monu Spa hand & nail cream | John Frieda Full Repair deep conditioner | Johnsons Baby Bath | L'Oreal Micellar Solution | Lancome HydraZen Eye Cream | MAC Superslick Liquid eye liner | MAC In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash | Benefit They're Real mascara | MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in soft & gentle | MAC Mineralise Satinfinish foundation 

Monu Spa hand & nail cream (£11.95) - This lived in my hand bag and was used daily. It smells fresh, not too overpowering, and my hands constantly felt soft and smooth, and my nails and cuticles also were kept in great condition. 

John Frieda Full Repair deep conditioner (£6.99) - I'm always wary of trying out new shampoos and conditioners as it plays havoc with my hair, but this stuff felt lush on my hair. I'm still using the shampoo, but the conditioner soon ran out as I was using so much on my thick hair. My hair did feel soft and smooth each wash, exactly as it promised. 

Johnsons Baby Bath (£2.90) - Johnsons products have never really left my house, I seem to have always had them in. Bradley suffered with quite dry skin and slight eczema as a baby, and I continued to use gentle baby products as he grew up, and still almost 10 years on nothing has changed :) Nothing beats the smell of baby products in the bathroom :)

L'Oreal Micellar Solution (£3.33) - This was the first micellar water I'd tried and I was pretty happy with it. Read my full review here.  

Lancome HydraZen eye cream (£32.00*) - I was given this little sample bottle from a friend to try out. It's a gel like cream that I used as part of my evening skincare routine. It always made the skin around my eyes felt soft and smooth. I'd definitely use it again, if budget allowed! :)

MAC Superslick liquid eye liner in marked for glamour (£17.00*) - My friend bought me this for my birthday. It's in 'marked for glamour' which is a grey colour. It's a nice liquid eyeliner I used now and then for an everyday look at work, but I do prefer a black eye liner so once it ran out I repurchased in 'on the hunt'.

MAC In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash (£18.00) - I do love this mascara, I repurchase over and over.

Benefit's They're Real mascara (£19.50) - Still one of the best mascaras ever made. This and the above MAC mascara are firm favourites and a must in my make up collection, constantly repurchased when finished. 

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in soft & gentle (£22.00) - LOVE this stuff! Another must in my collection. Creates an illuminated finish and works as a great highlighter.

MAC Mineralize Satinfinish Foundation (£27.00) - Now renamed Mineralize Moisture, this is a gorgeous foundation but as it gives quite a satin-y, dewy finish, it was better on nights out and special occasions as would often make my skin look quite shiny. It's a lovely foundation that I def need to think about repurchasing soon!

Dove GoFresh RollOn deodorant | Smashbox Its A Wrap MakeupRemover | Olay CC cream | Avon Cellu-Sculpt | MaxFactor Xperience Foundation | Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish hot cloth cleanser | MAC Eyebrows | Be A Bombshell syeliner | W7 Light Diffusing Concealer | Ginvera Green Tea BB cream

Dove Go Fresh Roll on deodorant (£1.15) - I prefer a roll on over any other form of deodorant and Dove is a favourite of mine, always keeps me feeling and smelling fresh.

Smashbox Its A Wrap Waterproof Makeup Remover (£16.50*) - James bought me this for Christmas, after I'd popped it on my Wishlist to give it a try. I wasn't really keen on the feel of it on my skin, although it was great for removing eye make up. Read my full review here

Olay CC Cream (£16.66) - I really need to think about repurchasing this soon, as my skin felt great whilst using it. It's anti-ageing, an SPF moisturiser and sheer foundation and makes for a lovely base for my make up. 

Avon Cellu-Sculpt (£12.00) - I can't say this stuff works miracles but it helped my skin feel smooth on application. 

MaxFactor Xperience Foundation (discontinued) - I picked this up when I was desperate for some foundation but couldn't get to a MAC in time. I'm not a huge fan of drug store brands for foundation but it did the job until I could stock up on my usual. :)

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish hot cloth cleanser (£5.50) - I was first bought this little beauty as a present when I had Bradley almost 10 years ago, and I've been picked them up now and then since. It's a fab little product that always makes my skin feel fresh and soft after use. I've already repurchased and currently using it again.

MAC Eyebrows in spiked (£13.00) - My brows are a bit of a nightmare and have gaps and need a bit of extra help filling in and defining them. I LOVE this brow pencil, its perfect for creating neat brows. I've already repurchased and wouldn't be without it!

Be A Bombshell eyeliner in onyx ($14.00) - I received this in a beauty box and the felt tip pen like liner is probably one of the best liners Ive ever used.

W7 Light Diffusing Concealer (£3.49) - I picked this up at The Clothes Show with other W7 favourites. I was after a new under eye concealer so thought I'd give it a go. Unfortunately it didn't fair well at all, it seeped into my lines, looked patchy, and after about 4 uses, the pen fell apart and leaked thick concealer everywhere. Not great. 

Ginvera Green Tea BB Cream (£12.14*) - I'm usually pretty wary about using products from brands I've never heard of, but after receiving this in a blogger goody bag, and running out of my usual BB/CC cream, I gave it a go and was pretty happy with the results. It left a nice, smooth, fresh feeling and worked as a great base for my make up.

So, those were the products I got through over the past couple of months.
I wonder if I get through as much in April!
