Mixed Product Reviews #5

Hi there my Beauty Addicted Lovelies. I hope you had a fine weekend. I didn't get up to much really which was nice in a way. I have been collecting up the packaging from products I have used up to let you know what my thoughts are on them so here they are :)

Left To Right:

Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser, £14.40 for 150ml or $19.50 for 5 oz

For dry, combination, oily and normal skin types. Effectively removes makeup and sunscreen prior to skin cleansing. Skin feels moist, clean, and fresh. 

Thoroughly wet hands and face. Squeeze a pea sized dot onto palm and work into a rich lather. Massage over face avoiding eye area. Rinse off and follow with 3-Step Skin Care System.

I won this product in a charity raffle at work. This doesn't have a distinctive scent. It felt fine to use on the skin. It did help to clean my skin and remove make-up, but there were just a few traces left when I rinsed this off so I used either make-up remover or face wipes as I would do anyway. There are beads in this, but I didn't really feel like they exfoliated my skin or anything as they weren't abrasive and I believe just got washed away.

Morrisons Pack Of 2 Toothbrushes (One Shown), 20p for two

I thought I would include this toothbrush as these were such great value. Usually I use an electric toothbrush, but if I ever run out of replacement heads I sometimes use a regular toothbrush as an in between. While in Morrisons I picked up this pack of two toothbrushes as for 20p I thought I'd give them a go. These have lasted so well. The bristles are sturdy, but not too harsh when brushing and there is no fall out.

Max Factor Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation + Serum (Light Ivory 40) SPF15, £12.18 or $21.95

Ageless Elixir foundation simultaneously helps to protect against the ageing effects of the sun, keeping skin moisturised and protected to help you look and feel your best. The secret to the foundation’s innovation is in the well-blended, ‘elixir’ formula, which helps to:

1. Deliver instant medium to high coverage – through Ageless Elixir's specially treated pigments that reflect light. 
2. Improve skin tone by protecting and hydrating via the moisturising skincare formula.

I was previously sent this product for free which I reviewed here in the shade Natural 50. The shade Light Ivory 40 I purchased myself as I felt light I could do with a lighter shade which you can see in this post here. My thoughts are the same as my original review, but I think this shade suits my skin tone better.

Blink + Go Long Lasting Black Mascara, £12.95

I received this product in my December 2011 GlossyBox where you can find all information about this product.

I found this to be good for how deep the black was, but a little clumpy. It made my lashes look a bit thicker because of the clumping, but I prefer a more separated look.

Left To Right:

Morrisons Handwash Pearl, Less than £1.00 for 500ml

I have picked up this product many times on my weekly shop and it does what it's meant to. It has barely any scent which is soft and clean. I think this is around 60p which is such a value product and one which I will continue to repurchase.

Decleor Aromessence Spa Relax, £21.51 for 100ml

Aromessence Spa Relax is a pure concentrate of essential oils carefully formulated to bring you serenity and well-being. This light, yet luxurious oil works in perfect harmony with your skin to envelop your body with an intensly soothing sensation, soothe and ease away tension, relax your mind due to the potent olfactory benefits of its essential oils (Somalian Myrrh and Incense, Indian Sandalwood) and soften your skin and leave it silky smooth. Made in France.

I have no idea where I got this. It was either a present or a free gift with purchase from somewhere. This really does have a relaxing scent. Just smelling it makes me feel at ease. My fella and I use it for back massages. It's so soothing and makes you want to sleep.

Keep Clean And Shower Luxury Shower Gel Pomegranate Noir, 99p for 250ml

I picked up a few of these in various scents from the 99p Stores which you can see here. In that initial impressions post I describe this scent as 'soft, yet a little musky at the same time'. I really like it and I have picked up a few more already in case they stop selling it. My only fail with this is I wish it had a pump dispenser like the creams.

So that's all the mixed product reviews until I collect up some more for you. I hope you found this post helpful. Have you found any product discoveries that you now can't live without? Let me know in the comments below.

Love to you all


  1. I had mixed feelings about the mascara too. I like that kind of post

    1. It's good to try different brands and different products so now I'm onto the next mascara. I'm glad you like the post x
