Recently Recycled #3

Recently Recycled

In my bid to use up my beauty products I come at you with yet another round up of a few products that I have used up over the last month or so. A lot of these are from before the New Year yet I never got around to featuring them, the end of the year always seems so busy! It has only been since I have started packing up everything for the move that I decided to photograph them so I could finally pop them into the recycling bin.

There's once again a frequent visitor from my favourite dry shampoo Batiste so I will refrain from talking about that yet again, I feel like I feature a can of that in almost every single post like this. Onto more interesting products I had the opportunity to try out the Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Skincare Pads* which are packed full of AHA's and BHA's multi fruit extracts which help to exfoliate the skin chemically as opposed to physically. You get 60 pads inside of which I tended to use one once every two or three days so they did last me quite a while. Whilst I did notice that my skin felt a lot smoother I can't say that I noticed any other remarkable difference, my complexion saw no change despite using these frequently. Alongside the pads I was also offered the chance to try the Radical Skincare Advanced Peptide Serum* which considering the price I was expecting really great results however I have to say I was left feeling rather underwhelmed by this product. Whilst it was really nice to apply, the packaging too was pretty nifty (I loved how the product was dispensed) I honestly cannot say that I saw any visible difference in the texture/tone of my skin in the long term. It certainly made my skin feel lovely upon application but that was it, which for the price certainly isn't enough.

Onto body my beloved Raspberry Body Butter from The Body Shop was finally defeated. I had being trying to use this up actually as I'd had it for a little while and wanted to move onto something else. Like all the body butters from The Body Shop it was lovely yet I have definitely come to the conclusion that I prefer the more neutral/nut based scents instead of the fruity scents. Moving onto LUSH I also sadly finished off my little bottle of the much loved Snow Fairy Shower Gel. This has to be the only product that I have saved for special occasions as it smells so good and is only available at Christmas time; next year I would like to pick up a bigger size.

Last year I tried out the Faith In Nature Shampoo and Conditioner* in which I have found myself running out of the shampoo first out of the two. I tried the Grapefruit and Orange scent and absolutely loved it! It's not very often I really like a hair product but these really did tick the boxes for me. Once I've moved house I'll be ordering the coconut scent I think as after my experience with this duo I think that they will be really lovely.

The Nourish Balance Refining Toning Mist* was a product that I liked for its refreshing properties however it's not something that I found physically helped my skin. However in contrast to this the GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment* sample I have used up has been a product that if I hadn't have already thrown out would be featured within my February favourites, although I think I featured it in January too. This mask is utterly incredible and I'll be honest with you I would not have believed it until I tried it for myself. I have never seen my skin look as clear as it did once I had used it and that is no word of a lie.

Do we still like these kind of posts? I find I go through phases, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.

  1. I really want to get my hands on a glamglow sample! It's way out of my price range haha, but I still want to try it :P The Radical pads sound quite similar to the First Aid Beauty ones. I absolutely love those so it's a shame that the Radical ones didn't really wow you!

  13. Yes it is quite an expensive product, I love it but can't see myself buying it for a while yet. I have heard really good things about the First Aid Beauty pads, I still wouldn't mind checking those out x

  14. That's the one reason why I do like to include them here and there :) Oh how I remember Calpol! x

  15. Me too, normally I get through them relatively quickly but I wasn't feeling this scent as much as the brazil nut for instance x

  18. Yay I hope you like it Zoe, you'll have to let me know what you think of it. The Radical pads were a bit disappointing considering the price x

  20. The fruity scents are lovely, I do prefer them in the summer compared to the winter x

  21. I'm glad you know what I mean, I think perhaps because it's cold at the moment it's not the type of scent I would automatically reach for, I like warmer, relaxing scents at this time of year x

  22. I agree, it's lovely but I'd rather have the Brazil Nut scent x

  23. Batiste is my favourite dry shampoo so far and I have tried a few now x

  24. I love Supermud :) The shampoo and conditioner look amazing, that scent already sounds divine, but coconut? Even more! ;) xx

  26. I have to say Emma I haven't. I have tried the Dove one and I'm pretty sure I have tried the Tresemme one too and I have always gone back to Batiste. FIN is new to me, I'll have to check them out as I really like the coconut scent :) x

  27. I love reading posts about products people have actually used up because I trust the reviews a lot more. I was on the fence about the GlamGlow treatment but I definitely think I'll be giving it a go now ツ x
