I went on holidays in the middle of July, so I didn’t have enough empties to post about. Here’s my last two months of beauty stuff:

Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Sulfate Free Shampoo* – I was pleasantly surprised by this shampoo! It’s the first sulfate-free shampoo I’ve used that made my hair feel clean and didn’t leave me with an itchy scalp.

Biore Charcoal Pore Strip* – I haven’t used a pore strip in years, but I had to try one (for science). It did pull out a few sebum plugs, and it was satisfying seeing all the bits sticking out from the strip afterwards, but I’ve noticed some broken capillaries around my nose recently (from other stuff like horrific allergies), so this paranoid vain freak won’t be trying another strip anytime soon.

Covergirl Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara – This was my favourite mascara for a long time – it hold a curl like nobody’s business, but it’s really hard to get off, even with oil and two-phase makeup removers. I’ve now moved onto Maybelline Full and Soft Waterproof, which is a bit easier to remove.

Bioderma Sebium Purifying Foaming Cleansing Gel – I really love Bioderma’s skincare products! This is foaming and cleanses really well, but somehow does it without stripping your skin of moisture.

Lush Ponche Shower Gel* – This was from the last Christmas Lush collection, so I thought I’d better use it before this Christmas rolls around…

Lush Popcorn and Bubblegum Lip Scrubs* – These are great for the lips. They’re just oil and caster sugar with flavours, but the flavours are really lovely.

Burt’s Bees Wipes – I wasn’t a huge fan of these – they were itchy and smelt kind of sour.

Gloss ‘n Sparkle Lemongrass and Ginger Soy Melts – This was my favourite scent from GnS, and unfortunately it’s been discontinued. It’s refreshing and puts me in the mood for cleaning.

Meraki Strawberry & Coconut Body Scrub – I absolutely adore the scent of this, which is a delicious fresh strawberry and coconut scent. It worked pretty awesomely too.

Glasshouse Kakadu Water Lily Hand Creme – I love Glasshouse candles, but I’m not a massive fan of the candle scents on my skin, probably because I’m a bit meh about floral scents on my skin in general.
