Recently Recycled #4

Beauty Product Empties
Recently I've finished off a fair few products which fall into the skincare category which comes as no more of a surprise to you than it does me. It isn't very often that happens as I find skincare can take a while to get through however I'm making a real effort to use things up that I know are pushing it when it comes to their life expectancy as it were.

Getting straight to it the REN ClayCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser* is a product that I have absolutely adored and is one that I purchase later on in the year. Originally sent to me as a sample to try out this has been one of the very few samples that I know I want to go out and buy for myself having now used it. It's such a beautiful product that provides a really nice purifying cleanse that isn't stripping on the skin, I personally liked to use this as my second cleanse as I think the benefits of using it that way were much better as opposed to using it simply to remove your make up. Speaking of cleansing and removing make up my favourite micellar water to date has to be the Garnier Micellar Water which must now be my third bottle. It's such a bargain and does the job perfectly, I'm a huge fan of this and have already purchased another bottle.

Onto hair care once again I have another repurchase which is the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave-in-Spray which for some reason is still really hard to find where I live yet I know it's readily available in most places. I've really liked this for a long time now as it leaves my hair feeling nourished but not heavy and also smelling delightful! I've gone through two or three of these now and can honestly say I haven't really looked at any other leave in conditioner since. Sticking with hair care for one more moment I have here the LUSH Big Sea Salt Shampoo which I would happily say has to be one of my all time favourite hair care products to date. I've yet to pick this up again as I forgot last time I was close to LUSH however when I go back in a few weeks time I'll be picking up another. The scent of this is incredible, it smells so fresh and invigorating whilst also leaving my hair in the softest and nicest condition it has been in a long, long time. Whilst I can't say that it gives me volume (I think the name for me is a bit misleading) I can say that I will always have a tub of this on the go, it is brilliant stuff.

Beauty Product Empties

Origins for a long time now has been a brand that I have got on very well with so it makes me somewhat a little bit sad to be saying goodbye to two fantastic moisturisers. The Origins Make A Difference Plus was a product I used both day and night and is one that I miss a lot in my routine as I found that it just worked so beautifully on my skin. It wasn't too heavy and didn't exacerbate any breakouts, quite simply it worked and for that reason I know I'll be repurchasing. Again much like the former the Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins night cream was one that I had read so much about before I really got into blogging regularly. The hype surrounding this product has been very much justified in my opinion as I really notice a visual difference in my skin when I have used this of a night time, it's so beautiful to apply and does not feel heavy at all despite being a richer cream for the night. Once again this will be a product that I repurchase at some point this year. 

The only make up product I have here is the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer which is a product that I used up a while ago but only now find myself featuring it. Marketed as somewhat a concealer I do think that it can act as almost a highlight too as the shade I have is quite light making it perfect for brightening up under the eyes and using on the very top of the cheek bone. Again this is a product that I got on very well with and is one that I will repurchase as I currently now use something similar from Charlotte Tilbury which whilst I really like it I do think that the L'Oreal one does a similar job for more than half the price. 

Finally I have a fragrance here which was an unexpected discovery after receiving it for Christmas one year. The Lady Gaga Fame fragrance was one that I got through very quickly as it instantly became a favourite of mine. I'll put it out there that I rarely fall for celebrity fragrances such as these yet this one had me hooked! It's quite a warm scent if I remember rightly with notes of honey and saffron yet once on it does change ever so slightly, it's also pretty affordable too.

  2. The two Origins creams sound amazing, and I've heard such good things about them. Definitely products I want to try! I've always been intrigued by the Lady Gaga perfume, but I don't think I've ever actually smelt it haha. I just always thought it looked really cool! :P

  13. I've always shied away from trying the Lush haircare products so I might give that shampoo a try!
    The vernier micellar water really is a staple!

  16. I'd really like to try Big soon, I'm thinking of making a Lush order when I've used up some more things because there are a lot of things from their range that sound so nice! xo

  17. I've been trying to track the Dove spray down too, but I believe it's been discontinued as they changed their whole haircare range :( which is gutting xx

  18. I really want to try the REN clay cleanser as I've heard such good things about it. I was a little concerned it might be drying but that doesn't appear to have been a problem for anybody x

  19. I'm so glad to hear you loved the Ren cleanser! I currently use their Clarifying Gel Cream at night and have been loving it so I was looking to introduce the cleanser as well and this really seals the deal for me, i'll defintely give it a go.

  21. I recently got my hands on the Garnier Micellar water but the one with the green top meant for oily skin. After this post I'm questioning whether I won't give the pink top a try next time! I've also been on the look out for a decent leave-in spray, so the Dove Spray is now on my radar. Thank you! x

  23. I honestly could not recommend them more Tasha! I'm not repurchasing them at the moment as I have a few things to use up but I will be when the time comes x

    ReplyDelete
  24. It smells so lovely! I hope you have better luck locating it than I do x

    ReplyDelete
  25. Same here, I recently picked up the one with the green lid so hopefully that one is just as good x

    ReplyDelete
  26. It's so good isn't it! I may have to repurchase it tomorrow as I'm off to town x

    ReplyDelete
  27. You sure do, it's so good! x

  28. It is so lovely Sian, it really does make my hair feel so nice x

    ReplyDelete
  29. It's really quite nice, it took me by surprise. I wouldn't say I loved it but I was more than happy to wear it for an everyday fragrance instead of using my more expensive ones x

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've tried Bioderma too and now cannot justify the price difference when the Garnier one works just as well x

    ReplyDelete
  31. It's lovely isn't it x

    ReplyDelete
  32. It sure is, especially when it is on offer x

    ReplyDelete
  33. Me too Rebecca, it's a favourite that's for sure! x

    ReplyDelete
  34. It is indeed and as for the LUSH product I too was wary but I'm happy I tried it, very happy actually x

    ReplyDelete
  35. It seems like a firm favourite amongst everyone at the moment x

    ReplyDelete
  36. If there is one thing I would try it would be the make up remove, it's fab x

    ReplyDelete
  37. There's always something from LUSH that I want to try, I'm only gutted that I no longer have a bath as I loved their bubble bars x

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh no that is such a shame! I really did like that one too x

    ReplyDelete
  39. No I haven't found it drying in the slightest and my skin isn't super oily x

    ReplyDelete
  40. I really do love it Sharon, in fact I love it that much I found myself cutting it open and scooping what was left into my empty origins pot! x

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thank you, I hope you both like the Garnier alternative x

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh yes I have picked that one up to try too, hopefully it works just as well. Apparently from a comment below the Dove spray may have been discontinued as the line has changed, I'm sad about this as I really liked it x
