June Empties

Here are my June empties, I am sure I had more this month? but this is all I could gather. I do have a really bad habit of not finishing a product and just buying more before its empty - I know its naughty, my mission is to finish the whole pot before I move on (or if I really dont like it give it to a friend who might!) whos with me?

L'Oreal Youth Code Day Moisturiser - This is my second pot of youth code, I bought it on a whim when I looked at my face in the morning and thought the old crows feet and head creases were setting in. I will be reviewing this separately because I think it is worth its own review, but is a re-buy
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle eau de toilette - Probably my number one fragrance and now its gone :-( hubby if you are reading this then LOOK THE BOTTLE IS EMPTY! it settles on the skin  so lovely, it is soft yet strong enough to be noticed all day infact if I spray it on a scarf or something it will be just as strong the next time I come to wear it. Its a classic and a must if you have not tried it yet - defo a re-buy
Soap & Glory Scrub 'Em and Leave 'Em Body Buff - It did not take much for this to be empty, its only a small pot - I have already reviewed this here along with two others which are empty too but were thrown out meh. This is not a re-buy item for me
Dove Summer Glow Daily Face Moisturiser  fair/medium- My immediate thought is - its OK, it does add a touch of colour to the skin which can be devleoped into a darker colour after a few applications, but it does have a bit of a greasy texture and made me a little yellow. It also gave the biscuit smell, but I am yet to find any kind of tanner which doesn't develop on me smelling of digestive. I am still on my quest to find the perfect everyday tanner moisturiser for my face as it always seems to look too pale compared to the rest of me! any suggestions welcome. Not a re-buy
Natural Collection Lash Build Mascara black - One of my favourite cheapy mascaras (£1.99) I originally bought this because I only had 2 quid in my purse but I have re-bought this a few times now and I have also tried the water guard version which is equally as good. I think it is the thick brush which does it for me as it gives a great application. This is a re-buy item but I have my eye on some other mascaras at the mo like this Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara
Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Conditioner - This reminds me of when I was a teenager, me and my friends used to use SUN IN spray where we would desperately apply it trying to get really blonde hair! I bought the shampoo and conditioner in the go blonder range, I have used the Highlight Activating range before and as a comparison I did not see much difference at all. My hair was not noticeably lighter but it is a good daily conditioner for blonde hair. Not a re-buy for me purely because it doesn't add anything to the colour of my hair.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation in Ivory 100 - this is quite a heavy foundation obviously because of the staying power claims, I found it a bit cakey and I dont think it would stay put for 25 hours, not that I tried it. My T-Zone started to get a bit oily mid afternoon but a lot of foundations do this on my skin and need a little touch up. I dont think I did myself any favours going for an Ivory shade but it was the best match available - not a re-buy

  5. This is a cute idea. Do you mind if I borrow it?

    I'm starting to think about halting the wrinkles too! I've recently noticed faint ones across my forehead.

  6. I totally love the Soap and Glory body scrub - it smells so pretty!
    I've used the Go Blonder shampoo and conditioner and actually hated it, my hair just got so dried out - but thats probably because my hair is dry and crazy anyways haha!

  11. Oh Sun In, that turned more people ginger than blonde to be honest! Excited to see your L'Oreal review in the future, I have also decided that I'm doing some sort of weird Benjamin Button thing and have the skin of a 60 year old. And glad to see someone else who loves that perfume :) Good choices!

  12. I believe one of your commercials triggered my browser to resize, you might want to put that on your blacklist.Hi! I found your website by Prolongz accident this morning, but am really pleased that I did! Not only is it entertaining, but also straightforward to use compared with lots that I've viewed! I was attempting to discover what theme you had employed, – anyone have any clue?http://www.healthcaresdiscussion.com/prolongz/
