Mixed Product Reviews #3

Hi there you Beauty Addicts. I hope you are having a fab weekend. I'm feeling all sorry for myself as I am not well :( I have a bad throat and cough and feel like death. Oh well enough of the drama let me get into my post to take my mind off of it. Today I have many mixed product reviews for you.

Left To Right:

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse 80 Handy Wipes Orange Scented, £1.00

I picked these up in Poundland. I think they were in the baby section. I always go there now rather than the beauty section as you get 80 wipes for just £1.00 rather than the 20-30 wipes I usually get in the ones aimed at beauty.

This Works Clean Skin Daily Wash

I received this in my January Feelunique Beauty Box. I really enjoyed using this facial cleanser because of the scent. It felt like I was giving myself a relaxing facial each time I used it. It was a pretty good cleanser at removing make-up, but not every last trace. This was £18.00 for 150ml at the time I received it, but I'm not sure if it is still available anymore. I think it may have been discontinued or may now be the Gentle Cleanser?

Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisture Mist Hydrating Spray, Various prices/sizes

I received this in my July GlossyBox. After cleansing I would spray this on as refreshing pick me up. I used it on sun burnt areas earlier in the year also to cool them down. Check out the link above for this product or alternatively have a look on Ebay or Amazon as I have seen it on those sites for various prices.

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift and Sculpt Moringa Cleansing Balm, £25.50 for 100ml

I received this in my November 2011 Feelunique Beauty Box. This also came with the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Dual Action Professional Cleansing Cloth which I intend to keep and re-use as it can be washed. It looks like a white flannel. This combined with the face wash mentioned above was just a lovely combination. I love the packaging of this product. It looks expensive and classy. This did last me quite a while. The texture is like a smooth balmy paste. It's a lot more pleasant than it sounds. The scent is amazing. I see that on the John Lewis website there is a starter kit for just £32.00 that includes the balm and a cloth as well as 3 other treats. This may be a nice gift for someone this Xmas or even yourself.

Possibility Lemon Cheesecake Ultra Rich Shower Gel, Shampoo & Bubble Bath

At the time this was on offer in Savers for £1.00 so I snapped it up. I managed to snap the lid when I dropped it in the shower, doh! This was okay, but it has a slight medicinal scent to it. I will attempt to make the lemon cheesecake recipe on the front of the bottle and for those of you that want to also here is a close up.

Possibility Peppermint Ice Cream Ultra Rich Shower Gel, Shampoo & Bubble Bath

I bought this at the same time so I got this from Savers for £1.00 also. This one I really liked. It was so refreshing and uplifting. I would definitely pick this one up again. Here is a close up of the recipe on this one.

Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil, £14.28 for 100ml

I received this in my July 2011 GlossyBox. This product did not appeal to me from the start due to it's medicinal appearance. This is something at first glance I would expect to pick up in a pharmacy, not at a beauty counter. After a bath I applied this all over my body and lets just say if you tried to give me a hug you would probably have slipped right off me. This is definitely of an oil consistency. I thought this might sink into my skin after a while, but five hours later it still felt greasy on my skin. I could not do this to myself again so I resorted to using it as a massage oil as I hate wasting products. The scent is okay, but I'm not a massive fan. This ones a miss for me.

Aveeno Skin Relief Shea Butter Moisturising Lotion, £2.99 for 200ml

I think I got this free sample in a magazine. This lotion felt nice to apply and sank into my skin very easily.

Elizabeth's Daughter The Daily Moisturiser For Face and Body SPF15, £17.50 for 100ml

I received this free sample at Glow Bluewater when I attended the Vitality Boutique. This was also a nice cream to use on both my face and body that again sank into my skin nicely.

Alison Claire Remarkable Bio-Natural Beauty Mango Body Butter, £15.00 for 200ml

I received this product in my November GlossyBox. I love, love, love this product. The scent is just adorable. I made my fella smell me whenever I applied this if he was around. I smelt like a sweet and that's a good thing :) I actually got excited to apply this because of the amazing scent. I did go through this rather quickly as I tend to do a full body moisturise twice a day. I love the pump design. I only wish it came with a pump on the full size 200ml version. 

Rose & Co Apothecary Rose Petal Salve, £5.00 for 20g

I received this in my October 2011 Boudoir Prive Box. This tin has lasted me absolutely ages. I have used other lips balms in between, but this I would say I have had around 7-8 months use out of. This always felt nice to apply, but it didn't resolve my dry, flaky lips. Mine are unruly though and nothing seems to work on them. The vintage tin is so cute and has the rose scent to match. I think this could be a sweet stocking filler for crimbo.

Colgate Advanced White Fluoride Toothpaste, £1.27 for 100ml

This toothpaste was fresher and more minty than the standard Colgate that I don't like because I think it lacks that fresh feeling. I did not notice whiter teeth in 14 days.

Oral B 3D White Brilliance Radiant Mint Fluoride Toothpaste, £2.49 for 75ml

This was fine to use, but again no whitening brilliance. I also hate screw top toothpaste as it ends up bouncing around my bathroom because I am forever dropping it.

No7 Lift & Luminate Foundation SPF 15 (Porcelain), £16.50

In the link above is No7's Lift & Luminate Foundation, but the bottle design has changed and I'm not sure if they have changed the formula so I can only tell you my thoughts on the product I have tried. This was a great everyday foundation. It was so easy to apply and gave a light/medium coverage. It did not feel heavy at all on my skin. I could wear this as a tinted moisturiser with one layer or build it up to two layers for a medium foundation coverage. I would not say that my skin felt more lifted as there was no tightening effect for me.

Superdrug Nail Polish Remover Acetone Formula, £1.09 for 250ml

This product is such great value. I prefer acetone polish removers as they can remove stubborn nail polish, especially glitters more easily. There is also a 50ml size for 79p.

Elegant Touch Vitamin E Rapid Dry Nail Spray, £2.79

I have been using this for years and I need to get some more. This is a simple spray that mists over your nails to help them dry quicker. It is said to dry nail polish in 60 seconds and although it dries them very quickly I would still be careful when digging around in your handbag or washing the dishes etc. A great alternative for speed when a top coat is just too much effort. So that I don't worry about smudging my nail art I use this so that no smearing occurs :)

Roger & Gallet Creme Sublime Bois D'Orange SPF 15 Hands & Nails Cream, £7.20 for 75ml

This was given to me for free at a Roger & Gallet PR event, Link. This product has a creamy, citrusy scent to it. This was a nice cream to use. It's weird how the design on the Roger & Gallet logo has gone a bit smudgy though.

So that's everything for these mixed reviews. I hope you found something informative in this post. What products have you been loving or loathing and why? Let me know in the comments below.

Love to you all



  1. I really want to try the Emma hardie balm, just got to finish another two first!

    1. I have noticed Emma Hardie products on a lot of blogs. I think the starter kit from John Lewis would be good to try.

  2. Don't usually see toothpaste in people's empties but it is really good you did as I was wondering if they lived up to the claims. :)

    1. I was tempted to try the Oral B one for quite some time and when I read a rave review on a blog I just had to try it. Sadly it did nothing more than the average one for me :(
