So I’m thinking this could maybe become a regular fixture – mini-reviews of the products I show in Instagram – thoughts? It won’t take the place of anything else – it’ll be in addition to the other usual stuff. Let me know what you think. 🙂
Anyway, without further ado:
Una Brennan Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil – £10.99 – formerly known as ‘the good product with the packaging from hell’. This is a great cleansing oil, it removes all of my makeup, doesn’t leave any residue and doesn’t sting my eyes. It is only hindered by the fact that it is a runny oil, in an open-neck bottle. No pump. The new ones at least have a snap cap but still, you have to pour this into the palm of your hand, put it down and get most of it on your face before it dribbles down your forearm like a cold lolly on a hot day. Other than that it’s great. *stabby*
Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion – see previous post
Nuxe Gentle Toning Lotion – £14.00 for 200ml – this is a perfectly lovely and affordable toner for all skin types. As an aside, it has one of the worst ‘ingredients’ pages that I think I’ve seen on a website. I’m not joking. Check it for yourself. What’s the point? Taking none of that into consideration because it’s hardly reflective of the actual product, which is why we are here, have a look at this the next time you see it instore. You may like.
Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Serum – £16.00 for 46ml – A great price for a serum containing a lot of ingredients found in much more expensive products, albeit maybe at lower %’s as they are near the end of the inci list. Feels good on teh skin, and does give an immediate plumpness to the skin. A good budget buy.
Organic Surge Extra Care Replenishing Facial Oil – £23.50 for 30ml – taken from Organic Surge’s more premium line ‘Extra Care’, this smells and acts very similar to a lot of other high-end oils but it does have a slightly ‘gritty’ feel that the more expensive oils don’t. If you’re an oil addict you’ll know what I mean. It’s a good oil, just not great.
Organic Surge Overnight Sensation Night Cream – £12.95 for 50ml – this, from Organic Surge’s original line, is much more like it. Completely worth checking out if you’re in the market for a night cream, as promised on the box, this does make you wake up with refreshed skin.
