Mixed Product Reviews #1

Hi Lovelies. I have been having a little think and rather than showing you all of my 'Empties' I am just going to show you the products that I haven't reviewed before otherwise I feel like I am boring you by showing you the same products again and again. So here are my reviews :)

Left To Right:

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, Various prices in link

This product I received as part of a gift set from my boyfriend. It came with a muslin cloth that I intend to keep and re-use. The muslin cloth is washable. I have the pump bottle, but you can buy this in a tube form. The way to use this product is to massage one or two pumps over the face and neck. Then warm the muslin cloth in warm water, squeeze the excess water out and gently wipe over the face and neck. Repeat as necessary and follow with your usual skincare routine. This is said to 'swiftly remove all traces of face and eye make up, even stubborn mascara'. Now I would say this pretty much does that for me, but for some reason mascara is something really hard for me to remove no matter what I use. I do enjoy this product though and would certainly recommend it. The cream itself combined with the muslin cloth smooth over the skin nicely. When I first used this I was a bit scared as I thought the cloth might be too abrasive for my skin, but I use it every day which is something I would never do with the usual facial exfoliators as my skin just can't take it. My skin does feel very refreshed and clean using this product so if you are on the lookout for a great cleanser/make-up remover check this out.

Rodial Glamoxy Snake Serum, £127.00 for 25ml

I received this product in my September GlossyBox. This felt like a nice serum to use, but I did not notice the 'freeze-like effect' that this product claims. I really didn't want to look like I had had a surgical procedure so I was quite relieved, but I think this product does not justify the price at all.

Yon-Ka Pamplemousse Protective and Vitalizing Cream Normal to Oily Skin, $38.75 for 1.7oz

I received this product in my June JolieBox. This is meant for normal to oily skin whereas mine is dry, but it did work fine. It has quite a zesty scent to it.

Pure Revitalising Daily Moisturiser, £1.00 for 200ml

I have used this for a while. It's cheap and cheerful and does a good enough job for £1.00. I have used this as a body moisturiser also when I ran out. It has a nice creamy scent.

Left To Right:

Sure Women Long Lasting Protection Clear Aqua Crystal 48 Hour Active Anti-Perspirant,
£1.29 for 150ml

I bought this at my local Tesco garage when I ran out of anti-perspirant, but it's actually quite nice. I would have preferred the can to have more feminine colours, but the scent of this product is feminine. I can not comment on the 48 Hour claim as I wash before 48 hours is up, ha ha.

Pink Disposable Razor, 99p for loads at 99p Stores

I bought this razor as part of a pack of about 30 which I thought for 99p I should give a try. Let me tell you that this was just awful. I am always up for a bargain, but this thing was beyond useless. I went over and over and over my legs with this thing. I felt like I was wasting my time and I pretty much was. This barely removed any hairs. It's pink, but that's all I like about it.

Blue Disposable Razor, Price unknown

I picked these up almost straight after trying the pink razor above. I got this blue razor as part of a pack of about 4-6 razors from the Co-Op. I think these were about £7.00 for the pack. There were no razors that looked like women's in there so I think this is meant for a man, but it actually works really well. The head pivots slightly to manoeuvre around the contours of your body easily. Are men's razors better perhaps?

Macleans Ice Whitening Gel Toothpaste, £2.13 for 100ml

This was a refreshing toothpaste, but I didn't notice the whitening effects and I hate screw tops.

Hello Kitty Bubble Gum Mouthwash, 90p for 237ml

I love this product. My Mum bought this for me and I just love using it. It does taste like bubble gum, it's pink, it's Hello Kitty, it makes me feel like a child. WIN, WIN, WIN :) I picked up another bottle yesterday. This is sugar and alcohol free.

Left To Right:

Soap & Glory Clean On Me Creamy Moisture Shower Gel,
£5.50 for 500ml

In the link above it's shown as a clarifying rather than moisture shower gel. It looks like the same product, but please let me know if you know different. I received this as part of a gift set for Xmas. I really like pump design. It's especially handy in the shower. It has that classic soap and glory creamy scent. You can find this in various links on Ebay in travel sizes too.

Roger & Gallet Fleur d'Osmanthus Foaming Shower Honey, £9.99 for 250ml

This was given to me for free when I attended the Roger & Gallet Blogger Evening. This is a very fresh and comforting scent. It feels lovely on the skin. I did get through this really quickly though, but I do apply wash products quite liberally.

Roger & Gallet Bois D'Orange Refreshing Fragrant Bath & Shower Gel, $23.00 for 8.4oz or £10.80 for 250ml

This was given to me for free at the same event mentioned above. This is really nice and citrusy. It feels nice on the skin, but again I seemed to get through it very quickly. I tried this in both the shower and bath.

Champneys Moisture Miracle Skin Comforting Bath Milk, £8.00 for 300ml

The bottle looks different in the link above, but I believe it to be the same product. This was given to me by a friend. This has that really baby soft, creamy feel and scent to it. Just lovely.

Left To Right:

Guess Seductive Body Cream, £14.30 for 200ml or £20.80 with a 30ml EDT

I bought this for myself ages ago along with the EDT that I am still using. I purchased my gift set from asos in the January sales. I love this scent. It's sexy and seductive without being in your face. It was a nice cream too.

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Body Lotion, £10.00 for 500ml or 16.2oz or $20.00

This I received as part of the same gift set that the shower gel mentioned above was in last Xmas. I have used the body butter version of this and they both have that adorable, classic Soap & Glory scent. I prefer the lotion as it I find it much nicer to use this pump design rather than digging my finger nails into a tub of product. The only bad thing is when it neared the end I had to use the pump to scoop it out as the pump wasn't picking up the product.

Pure Fiji Exotic Bath and Body Oil, £24.50 for 236ml or $19.95

I received this product in my April JolieBox. I'm not a massive fan of oils on the body usually, but I do love a good back massage and so I would get my fella to use this on me for that purpose (minds out of the gutter people)! I adore the scent of this and I think my fella does too. It is a holiday in a bottle.

Roger & Gallet Bois D'Orange Moisturizing Refreshing Fragrant Body Lotion, £11.50 for 200ml or $24.90

I received this product for free at the Roger & Gallet Blogger Evening. This was a lovely cream to use and has the same scent as the Bath & Shower Gel mentioned above. I can't believe how quickly I used up these Roger & Gallet products.

Left To Right:

Morrisons Approx 200 Cotton Buds, Price unknown

I'm sorry I can't remember how much these were, but they were really cheap. I'm always a bit wary of using cheap cotton buds in my ears in case the bud comes off. It has happened to me once and it freaked me out. These however were fine for that purpose and for make-up touch ups.

Primark Beauty Nail Polish Remover Wipes (25 Pads), £1.00 for 3 tubs I think?

I received these for Xmas and I think they came in a pack of three tubs. They do a pretty good job of removing the average nail polish, but they don't do so well with glitter. I'm not much of a fan of how oily they are. The pads are quite thin though and easy to fold which is good for cleaning up the edges after painting on my manicure.

Barry M Nail Paint 244 Holograms, £2.75 for 10ml

I have had this nail paint for a long, long time and alas I went to use it the other day and it's all dried up :( I love the multi-coloured hexograms in this product. They are perfect to add sparkle to any nail colour.

So that's the lot. I hope you prefer me showing you only products you haven't seen on my blog before in my monthly reviews. As you can see there are still plenty of products to show you.

What have you loved and loathed of late? Let me know in the comments below.

Love to you all
