HELLO! To new & old members, not sure who's still here, I swear I didn't mean to leave! September 2013 was the last time I blogged here and this has partly been due to a busy work schedule, lots of big things on my horizon. July has certainly been a very eventful and awesome month for me, with many fun activities, trips, and projects. Recently I also celebrated my birthday (23rd of July). Anyway, I want to catch up with everyone and see how things are going on!
And without further ado I'll start with my July Empties post and so here's what I used up in July:-
LA ROCHE POSAY SEROZINC ASTRINGENT TONER
Who hasn't tried it? I really love it! The brand La Roche Posay has been a favorite of mine for quite some time. Serozinc is to be sprayed either directly on to the face or with a cotton pad after cleansing the skin to calm it down. Not only does it seem to take all of the abrasive-ness of daily facial cleansers, but it’s been keeping all of my budding skin imperfections at bay. It's not life-changing but since I ran out I've really missed it and so have put in an order so there should be a new bottle on my skincare shelf this week. Excited!
ORICO LONDON SUPERICO VITAMIN RICH FACIAL OIL
I love the fact Orico is an ethical, modern skincare company! Supporting the World Land Trust (a UK based conservation trust working in partnerships to save critically threatened habitats around the world). Orico products are Eco Certified, Cruelty-Free and support the elimination of harmful chemicals in cosmetic products. So does Orico Superico Vitamin Rich Facial Oil live up to the hype? Well, I think it does! The Superico oil is great for that extra moisture boost, it doesn't sit on skin and actually doesn't leave an oily/greasy residue! After applying every night under a face serum, I wake up looking deeply rested, no matter how little I got as sleep!
LUSH DREAM CREAM
I love Lush Dream Cream! It's got a herbal/lavender smell which isn't overpowering. As I've a combination/dry skin, my skin absorbs it quickly and on top of it being soothing and calming to my skin, it's also very moisturizing. The texture of this cream is like pudding and it feels amazing to apply. You can use it almost anywhere - even on your face! In my opinion it's worth the money.
AYUR LEMON AND HONEY FACE GEL WITH TEA TREE OIL
This is a good, standard facewash, nothing special. I like the smell, and its in a gel like form, with yellowish tint and tiny beads in it. Ayur Lemon and Honey Face Gel wash takes off makeup but leaves my skin feeling tight, plus I don’t get that feeling of deep cleaning. It worked just average for me, I can't say I'd repurchase.
BOOTS TIME DELAY DAILY SKIN HEALTH DAILY BRIGHTENING CLEANSING LOTION
I like this cleanser. Absorbs in and takes off most of my make up! I follow this up with the La Roche Posay Serozinc toner. Boots Time Delay cleansing lotion is gentle and has left my skin soft and moisturised. Smells lovely too. If you have a dry skin then do give it a try, its definitely worth the money.
Apologies, this post ended up being a little longer than I expected it to be! But, I hope that you're all good, and thanks for reading my July Empties post!
